Our honeymoon in Crete and Santorini

I first fell in love with Crete when I was 14. My dad took my brother and I on holiday and I still remember breakfasts in the Marina, of sticky Baklavas and milkshakes. My love for Greece has stayed ever since and when it came to looking for honeymoon destinations that weren't too far from home, Greece was at the top of my list,

With full relaxation in mind we booked a week at the Sensatori resort in Crete which holds 5 stars, all of which are thoroughly deserved. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the service we received was second to none. The resort was spotless, the food was delicious and the staff were amazing. Crete is Sensatori's flagship hotel, it has 7 restaurants in total (4 of which are included in the all inclusive package which we went for), 7 pools (2 of which are adults only), a spa, 3 bars and more sports and activities than you can shake a stick at.

Although we didn't take Ava with us the children's facilities looked brilliant, they have a nursery, designated children's play area, children's evening entertainment once a week and they even have their own area in the buffet restaurant.

Nath and I stayed in one of their plunge pool rooms which also had a sea view (the beach is across the road). The room was bigger and better than I expected and it was so nice to top off our tans on our own balcony and private pool.

I felt like a fat little hippo for the entire week, if I was not gorging myself on the buffet I was snoozing in the sun,

 We were lucky enough to be gifted a night in Santorini by my lovely auntie & uncle who booked us the honeymoon suite at Aroma Suites. Santorini has been at the top of my "must visit" list for so long and it truly lived up to my expectations.

We were greeted by white washed houses with blue domed roofs and little shutters at every turn, It was picture perfect.

The winding cobbled streets held everything from jewellery boutiques to Irish bars and gelato shops.

We were recommended a lovely restaurant looking out over the water and got to watch the beautiful sunset.

It was a perfect week although we missed Ava like crazy and couldn't wait to get back to her. I'd love to go back one day with Ava in tow. It's a holiday that I highly recommend and one that I'll never forget.
