Found 29th Mar 2013
Mitsis Rinela Beach Resort & Spa 5star All Inclusive and excellent reviews on TA

Leaving from Glasgow Prestwick .. April 23rd .... £327 per couple

Thought I'd share this as looks like a bargain.

THOUGHT I'D SHARE THIS AS THE OP HAS WOEFULLY LEFT OUT THE TRUE COST OF THIS TRIP!
TRANSFER TO HOTEL IS 93 MILES, TAXI FARE IS £250 OR YOU COULD HIRE A CAR AND DRIVE YOURSELF £100
BAGGAGE IS EXTRA
IT'S NOT A PACKAGE HOLIDAY, THEREFORE VERY LIMITED PROTECTION

Can recommend the hotel!

I've just checked for mid-may and it's under £530 for two from East Midlands with good flight times!

I'd prefer the one below (search results) Aphrodite Beach Club

Goes up after adding baggage?

Hi the link takes me to the search page, can you post a direct link please?

Cheers

Yep, indeed it does, that's part of the great 'rip-off' notion which airlines adhere to unfortunately

I've stayed in this hotel and can highly recommend it.

Sounds like a brilliant deal, nice one

Fab deal

What a deal..

Good deal

Direct line please?

Cold. 149 km away from airport. No transfers either

Have just done a search on that site for 1 week in Crete, leaving from Glasgow on 23rd April, comes back with nothing.

Even if it was there, not sure if this is hot or not as the price assumes you are taking no luggage, and you can travel the 149km from the airport to the hotel and back again for free.

I have no idea how much these extras are. If I was going to book, then I would make the effort to find out, but not going to make the effort just for voting hot/cold purposes.

It's £236 for a 3 hour taxi ride from the airport to the hotel, no thanks.

Cold. £164 x 2 = £328.

I just got off the phone to my maths teacher and he confirmed the above mathematics and he also started working out how many pieces he will cut me in for waking him up at this time of the night.

This was a little bit cheaper when I linked to it last week in another holiday thread. The deal was great, but the transfers were the issue. The only cheap way were 3 buses and several hours so seemed far to much effort.

I`m going on 19th aril (paid £200 all in), taking car from airport for a week cost £86 so its pointless saying about £236 for taxi ride. I choose Aprhodite beach hotel instead

Tonikeys it's from Glasgow priestwick

No transfers available??If transfers were there 3 hours drive to hotel would be worth it,,

Prestwick*

How is it pointless saying the price of the taxi fare? Not every one can drive or would have the confidence to drive 3 hours across a foreign country.

This seems incredibly cheap!

hotel is only 10 mins from heraklion airport, guess you cant fly there from glasgow tho. Stayed there a few years ago, really nice hotel but I wouldnt call it 5 star, food is usual buffet canteen style, but they do have two sit down restaurants, a chinese and a greek style. for this price its a great deal but 3 hours transfer is a bit of a nightmare

lol@3 hours of transfers.

Add £115 for car rental, cheaper than transfers.

justrentals.gr/ind…tml

how many miles is 149 km

Good for those who can drive, but I can't. Taxi price is too expensive. But I'm going to Salou now thanks to the deal posted not too long ago.

Just book a transfer with a third party... try googling "airport transfers Crete" - job done. That's what I did for the holiday I booked for my wife's 30th and cost me about £20!

We didn't pick this hotel, but I can confirm that a half board holiday in a similar place on the east coast (shock horror, over an hour from the airport... must be crap) cost me well over £1000, so this is very much a hot deal, regardless of the extras.

Cold if you are single. I think there should be a section on here specifically for deals that require you to be in a relationship to make the saving.

Think you need to try another site.

why don't you just have a kid?

Crete in April is dead, hence the low price some hotels are offering, ok I guess if you want to just stay in the hotel,
Also worth noting April and even early May you can get storms and bad weather, trust me i lived through a few, so if you gonna go this time of year, a hotel with an indoor pool and indoor entertainment is a must

Can you tell me where you have hired your car from? We are going to Crete in May and the cheapest car hire I can find is about £140 for the week and thats the smallest model. Thanks!

COLD COLD COLD - No Transfers and a 3 hour Taxi Ride - Est @ £178 Each Way

Please BE AWARE of their disguised disclaimer in top right hand corner of their website:

"we don't sell package holidays, instead we let you build your own holiday by giving you access to a wide range of flights, hotels and transfer suppliers, saving you money."

this means you are waiving your rights to be covered by The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992.

It means the holiday costs less initially, but beware should you need to make a legal claim should anything go wrong eg you need to make a compensation claim as you are waiving some of your legal rights by booking with On The Beach.

Holiday makers should be made more aware of this loop hole by travel agents.
