Our room was tiny and the bathroom even smaller, the hotel is old, but immaculate. There is no elevator- three floor walk-up. Kalamaki is an easy drive to Matala. The lady who runs the hotel is very accommodating and helpful and the breakfast is nice. It's a short walk to Kommos Beach. The hotel IS right on a beach, but...

This place fits my description of the perfect beach hotel. You step off the terrace onto a narrow bit of road, cross that and you're on the beach. It was beautiful! The breakfast was good, and we enjoyed eating on the terrace and watching the ocean. The water of the Libyan Sea was beautifully clean and wonderfully blue. The beach...

While we were only there 1 night we wished we could have stayed longer in Kalamaki and at Alexander Beach Hotel. We chose to stay here while visiting Gortyna & Phaestos & I had read on tripadvisor that Kalamaki was quieter than Matala. Kalamaki really was just a small strip of restaurants & hotels, a quiet & relaxing beach. Our...

This is our second visit to the hotel, the first time was three years ago. The proprietor Diamante could not be more helpful and welcoming. She took time to make sure we were happy in our room. We were made to feel welcome without being fussed over! Perfect! The hotel is friendly and relaxed. The location is perfect. It is...
