Holiday Companies / Re: Olympic 2018
« Last post by Richard on February 16, 2018, 09:02:21 PM »
I had a look at Olympic a few weeks ago, can't remember which airline was on offer but the transfer was a taxi, costing, from memory, GBP150, each way, with no alternative. I booked a BA flight in the end.

I've made my own arrangements in recent years, having been completely hacked off by Olympic's couldn't give a sh#t attitude. It's possible to book a taxi for around 30% less than that - I've used Zak in Plakias and he'll do the trip for EUR105

Are Olympic laying on the 'magical mystery tour' coach transfer again? I don't trust them one little inch either way. Guides who get lost at three in the morning, flights cancelled or delayed at absurdly short notice, etc. I know that it's business and they have the market pretty much cornered, but I don't have to like it.

Rant over.

I suppose that I should try enjoy Plakias, without worrying about these people.

Cheers, Richard

I had a call from Olympic today informing me that the Enter Air charter was cancelled and would I accept a Thomas Cook flight a day earlier with similar flight times and a transfer still included.

My room will be still be available on arrival, although quite how this will work out I'm not sure.

Seeing as the EA flight was virtually full they must be distributing the passengers between any carriers they can find.

All adds to the general air of shambles at Olympic.

Plakias / Open restaurants?

I`m a regular in Plakias in the summertime. I have never been there in the winter, but plan to do so this winter.
Are all the restaurants in town closed for the winter?

Thanks for the update and the photo of what's left of Creta Mare !!

I just hope that George can get it finished and back in working order in time for our return visit in September.

Just and update on the CretaMare, they have constructed a metal frame in the balcony of each room see photo attached and have now formed a plasterboard around this steel which will form the new patio door opening giving each room an extra 18inch to 2ft, it seems a lot of work for a little gain but am sure they have there reasons.

I'm not sure about the building to the rear of Plakias Suites, I guess they were just making that resort a bit bigger but I might be wrong, If I hear anything I will let you all know.

Quite a bit of rain yesterday and today with an onshore wind the waves were very big 2m high at least depositing stones and a bit of debri on the main sea front road.

Still digging outside Sofia Taverna so one way road still completely blocked off, making it very difficult for lorries to get the new harbour side of things and they are having to go right around and drop down in from Selia.

No the car park is a builders yard for all the equipment and materials they are digging it up in places to lay new drains and manholes but there isn't a building or anything being constructed, I guess it will all be back to normal before the tourist season starts.
There was a concrete lorry outside the Creta Mare today and they have concreted new front kerbs to all the balconies, I will take a photo and if I can work out how to reduce its size I will post it up here.

"The main car park outside Kri Kri is now a full scale building site" does that mean that something is built on the main parking lot? Or ist it just a temporary place to park the machines and material?

Thanks for that excellent update on Plakias.

Most interested in the bit about George and his Creta Mare.
We are due back there in early September and would be pleased to see the pace habitable again by then!!!

Any further information on this building work would, therefore, be most welcome.

We would normally be back early June but are going to try Paleachora for a change this year.
The comparison with Plakias will be most interesting.
