And relax

Based on the northern shores of the island of Crete, Gouves is 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. In the property itself, we have provided a regular deep cleaning regime and offer hand sanitizer and other wellbeing products in each room. 

Away from the rat race

The Iraklis family’s great sense of hospitality shines through during the week, helping us make the most out of our stay. It is easy to see why many guests return year after year. This exclusive, uncrowded complex is perfect for singles who want to relax and unwind whilst also enjoying good company. Simple wellbeing initiatives, such as sanitisers and regular deep cleans of all rooms and common areas, will be in place for summer 2021 so that you can be sure of a safe and relaxing holiday.

Out & about

If your appetite for sea and sand is tempted 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.

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!

Select Flight Inclusive or Excluding Flight if available. Excluding Flight bookings allow you free cancellation and amendments but do not include flights. Flights can be added later. See our Free Cancellation Guarantee. Normal terms and conditions apply. All holidays ATOL protected.
