yeh i'm the clown who didn't see the fountain - but after this years visit i realise i had seen it but not properly finished.
finikas is the old hexagon if that helps - if not go behind the platia and you'll find it there

the block you stayed in is called zorbas apartments, which is owned by costas chrysoulla - sorry i have no idea about availability but guess it will be busy and booked up quite early

yes - not a patch on the meltemi in my opinion.  different atmosphere and music - or maybe i'm getting to old.  we only ever went a few nights and that was enough for me - we spent more time going between the ostraco, smerna and the beach bar

from landing up until we got to plakias was about three - three and a half hours. that included waiting for our suitcases and time spent waiting on the bus.  that was on a split transfer - bus to rethymno and taxi to plakias....there is only 1 time i remember having to wait for another flight to arrive and thats been over 20years.  i think at that time in the morning the chances of having a taxi transfer are quite high and should cut the transfer time to about 2hrs.  most of the time on the longer transfers are taken up by the bus having to stop at alot of hotels in bali and rethymno before it eventually heads down to plakias - i know it drives me nuts now but in the first few years ( and in daylight ) i quite liked seeing other resorts and accomodation on the way down and would compare it to plakias

sorry if i worried you
there isn't a problem with olympic or morvan, although she does stay in rethymno
there will be a rep to meet you at the airport, and one to put you on a bus or taxi - if you are left on your own you will have all the details you need to get you to your room and the reps will be there the next day for your welcoming meeting and to answer any questions.
you will not be kick out in the middle of plakias and expected to find your room.......the couple i refered to in a recent post only looked at the first bit of the accomodation which was costas chrysoulla and never told the taxi driver it was the zorbas apartments
i have never had a problem with olympic but can understand how it goes wrong sometimes

as for wakening up ali..........just check the beach bar  eh ali - or am i a bad influence???

i'm sure she is looking forward to welcoming you back george
i also passed on regards to denis and georgia from the skilos club - he tried to explain the story

the confussion is with olympic, not morvan....dont think the big wigs understand the workings of a place like plakias where there isn't a rep on site

only 2 bites for me in 2 weeks, usually find that if you go to certain places at night your more likely to get bitten.  but not this year,it must be the wind because the locals are complaining the the wind hasn't stopped for over a month now.. it was just starting to die off when we left - i didn't blow away the flies though
