This hotel is split in to two buildings I was put in the building down the hill, which has no flowers and is just a block of apartments. The view from my first room (No 15) was a side sea view and a rubbish tip. I asked to be changed to an apartment in the pretty part of the hotel and was told that they could change me in two days. After two days she took me to another apartment block, next to the one I was in which was called Valentino's and left me with the man there who was going to show me a couple of apartments to see if I liked any. When this man realised that I was travelling alone he said he was alone too and tried to kiss me a put his arms around me - needless to say I did not take any of his rooms! The next day I took room 6 in the block that I was already in. This was only a studio but had a large balcony with a view of the harbour. I think it was the best I could get - I was not going to get anything in the pretty part. The bathrooms in these apartments are adequate but could do with updating. The food was quite basic and could get boring if you stayed for longer than a week but there is nothing to stop you eating in the town.

Away from the Hotel Bali is very nice (if you don't look at the rubbish everywhere but this seems to be the same all over Crete). There are supermarkets and a cashpoint. The Elvi Beach is lovely and the owners of the bar behind this beach are very friendly.

Overall, I think I would go back to Bali but not the Ormos Atalia.

Top Local Tips for Crete

Dining in Bali Panorama Restaurant overlooking Bali harbour is magnificent food and excellent value for money. Amazed at how small the bill was. Bonsai cafe by harbour also brilliant for breakfast/lunch.
