Just Back From... St. Nicolas Bay, Crete, Greece March 22, 2018

Our Travel Adviser, Mandy, recently returned from a trip to the gorgeous St. Nicolas Bay Resort Hotel in Crete, Greece.

“My husband and I chose St Nicolas Bay for its beautiful beachfront setting in a private cove on the isle of Crete. I loved the design of the hotel – stylish and contemporary with little flavours of Greece thrown in. With the mountains in the background and olive trees dotted about it’s really idyllic and just what we were looking for. There were plenty of little areas around the hotel to simply unwind and take in the views with a drink.

I was really impressed with the service; most of the staff have been there for years and they really can’t do enough for you. Our suite was gorgeous and I loved the marble-lined bathroom and Jacuzzi-style bathtub. The views out to sea were spectacular and I loved spending time on the balcony sunbathing or reading a book when I wasn’t on the beach or in the spa! Speaking of the beach, it’s been awarded a Blue Flag for its high quality and the calm waters are perfect for snorkelling and other watersports; you can even hire pedalos and canoes or have a go at water skiing.

There was a great atmosphere at The Greek Kafenion restaurant with live music in the background as we shared plates of meze and looked out at stunning views over the sea. There are five restaurants in total, and we loved the buzzy Bonatsa Jetty Bar for after-dinner drinks right on the edge of the ocean with a live DJ and fantastic cocktails.

We wanted to explore the local area too, so went to Aghios Nikolaos, a 15-minute drive away, for a wander around the quaint boutiques. It was really picturesque and we stopped off in an authentic Greek taverna for some sparkling wine and a bowl of olives while watching the fisherman in the harbour.

There’s something for everyone here so I’d love to come back to St Nicolas Bay with the whole family. Next time I’d stay in one of the seafront three bedroom villas which come with their own large heated pools and separate living areas so we could all have our own space.”

Half Moon


You’ll be following in some very famous royal footsteps when you check in at this iconic hotel - the Queen, Prince Charles and, most recently, Prince Harry have all enjoyed Half Moon’s legendary Jamaican hospitality.

With 400 acres to explore, the best way to get around Half Moon is by bike - the pedal-back brakes take a bit of getting used to but they’re great fun once you’ve got the hang of it.

At over 60 years old, Half Moon might be getting on a bit, but she still likes to look her best - the Sugar Mill Restaurant and lobby area were refurbished last year and the Oleander section of the resort is now receiving a full makeover.
