Among the "fours" are hotels that belong to global chains - Grecotel, Aldemar and Iberostar, as well as local chains Elounda and Aegean.

What should you not forget when going to Greece? In addition to the attractions that you can admire when you come to this country with an outlandish and mythical history, there are many things
, the memories of which you just need to bring home. This is the national color and culture. By the way, the Greeks are very hospitable and smiling people, communication with them will give you a lot of positive emotions. Traditions are best preserved in smalltaverns and restaurants where mostly locals eat. To get to such an institution, it is worth leaving the tourist zone and delving into that part of the city where the life of the Greeks is seething: it is there that you will find cozy cafes “only for your own”. Of course, in the taverns on the coast, designed specifically for guests, the most “traditional” atmosphere will be created, but this is somewhat different. However, be sure to visit the "Greek Night" - an entertainment program in some tavern, where exclusively Greek dishes and drinks will be served, and actors in national costumes will dance sirtaki. So you definitely won't forget your trip to Crete! The island, whose hotels will give maximum comfort to make your vacation unforgettable, will remain in your memory for a long time!
