The location was very quiet. Annisaras was a small place with a quiet beach and a couple of restaurants and shops. If you want a crowded place, then you should go to Chersonissos, not far away. We like quiet places, so very nice for us. We rented a car for a week, to explore Crete. I recommend it, because at Annisaras wasn't much to do. The apartments were neat, simple, but clean. Three times a week clean towels and beds.
