Why go to Club Solos Crete?

  • Exclusive to Solos
  • Private pool
  • Traditional Greek tavern on-site
  • Beautiful gardens
  • Enjoy the fantastic hospitality of the Iraklis family
  • Less than half an hour’s drive from the island’s capital Heraklion

And relax

Based on the northern shores of the island of Crete, Gouves is just one of those places where you can kick back and relax along the sandy beach, stroll along the promenade at sunset or even work up an appetite with one of the land or water sports available. Pop into one of the souvenir shops or boutiques before taking in some delectable homemade sweets with tsikoudia.

Away from the rat race

The Iraklis family’s great sense of hospitality shines through during the week, helping us make the most of our stay. It is easy to see why many guests return year after year. Being exclusive to Solos, the complex is just the right size for us to get away from it all yet still enjoy good company. During the day the pool may call to flop next to, dip in or snooze around while the evenings are spent taking in wonderful cuisine prepared by head chef Mr Iraklis at the on-site taverna or heading into town to sample the local delights.

Out & about

If your appetite for sea and sand are tempered by a curiosity for all things ancient or cultural, then grab your chance to step back in time with the fascinating sights on offer. With its excellent location, there is a frequent bus service along the coast which heads into Heraklion and its archaeological sites or to the tourist town of Malia. Alternatively, take the opportunity to discover traditional Cretan life with our unique optional tours. Explore the Bronze Age site of Knossos or head across to the captivating island of Spinalonga; one of the last leper colonies in Europe and its Venetian fort.

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below. Your Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection to cover drivers, porters and hotel staff of €15.00 per week. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate add on.

Dress Code
Casual, cotton, lightweight daytime wear is the order of the day. Comfortable shoes are a must for sightseeing. Smart casual clothes will be ideal for the evening. Early and late season evenings can be cool so do ensure that you take a cardigan or jacket and even some rainwear – particularly in May and June when you may experience some spring thunderstorms followed by scorching days!
