We stayed in Aghios Nikolaos about 39 years ago! Must be that, because it was before I had children. I think my maths isn't good either, Clari, because I thought I was 27. We went to Spinalonga too, on a boat which I was nearly sick in because I ate something the hotel shouldn't have served the night before. It was October and was over 80°F and most of the beaches were deserted. When we got home we spent over 3 hours sitting on the platform at Gatwick station, about 45°F in our summer clothes in the night. First train was at 6am and everywhere was shut.
But we did have a lovely time in Crete. We hired a mini Fiat, like a bubble car, and the mountain roads were amazing, dirt tracks, wonderful scenery. The sea was clear and warm.
