The resort is well located not far from Rethymno and Chania, which allows you to explore most of Crete relatively easily (though the eastern part after Heraklio is a bit far). There are three restaurants included in the price, and one where you have to pay extra. The greek

Hi, are all the pools heated in April? regards
Dear Simon, Kindly note, that we do not have heated outdoor pools. This is not very common here on Crete and cannot be expected. Our indoor pool is heated. With best regards, Yours sincerely Pilot Beach Hotel Management

Which is the best car hire from Chania airport
Difficult to say. I would simply check on Auto Europe which generally has the best deals.

Hello, The Pilot is very nice. There are two parts to it separated by the road. The road is quite busy. Anyway, there is a good walkway under the road which guests use all the time, it is all linked within the hotel grounds and from the main hotel reception it only a short walk to the pool/beach area via the walkway. So the hotel has rooms both sides and also pool, gardens, restaurant, lounge on both sides. The gardens are lovely and we didn't mind the road, overall the vehicles can be heard but not intrusive.
