I have no idea about the pricing but the tournament takes place at the hotel from what I understand. There are many courts for the tournament (men going on at the same time too). The courts look pretty shitty though
And I guess you get there by plane. Heraklion has an international airport and Crete itself has 3 including the one in Heraklion. Or you could always book a ferry if you want to save money even though it would take much longer
And I think a lot of players like these tournaments because the venue is at the hotel so they don't have to travel to matches and they can relax on the beach or at the pool afterwards and there are many courts so they can practice whenever they want
