Part of the vast Out of the Blue Capsis Elite Resort, the Classic section is ideal for families

Nestled a stone’s throw away from Agias Pelagia, a traditional fishing village 16 miles from Crete’s capital, the Classic Collection at Out of the Blue Capsis Elite Resort was made for family holidays. There’s an astounding selection of things to do for younger guests, particularly those between 4 and 12 who can enjoy the on-site amusement park. Let your little ones work up an appetite as they trampoline, swim and play in the mythology-inspired park, and for older children and adults, the resort has a unique activity on offer in the form of three themed escape rooms.

The resort’s two main restaurants, Red Pepper and Green Pepper, have buffet dining – a great laid-back set up for families on the go – and guests can also opt for à la carte dining at a further four restaurants including Asian and Mediterranean fusion food at H2O and homely Greek cuisine at Seasalt & Rosemary Restaurant. For special occasions, we recommend booking a table at Safran, a stunning seafront venue for Italian fine dining. There’s also Amarando Beach Bar & Restaurant for tasty barbecue food, found on the resort’s private beach that’s conveniently located close to the resort’s Classic rooms and suites.

The rooms here have a warm Italian style. Classic Bungalow Style rooms have garden, pool or sea views. For those travelling as a family, there are dedicated Family Bungalow Style rooms with garden views with more space than Classic rooms and have a sofabed.
