The staff were lovely and accommodating. I had read reviews saying they were rude but I felt the opposite. It was my sisters birthday and the receptionist noticed the date on our check in form and came to say happy birthday the next day, very sweet. The place was clean and In a beautiful setting. Maybe slightly sleepy and dated...

The Kalypso Cretan Village is in a great location off the beaten track but the whole complex is very tired and needs a complete revamp. The pools and swimming lagoon called Pirates Cove are lovely and is what makes this Village along with the beautiful views. The staff are not very friendly and need to brush up on their customer...

This is a very interesting resort hidden away from other places. We really enjoed the "village", hidden bay, some swiming pools and nice views from our really huge terrace. Place is a bit outdated and some renovation would be nice, but we did not mind it. Food was decend and a lot of choice. Staff was a bit confused and...

Ahhh the sea, the fresh air, the remoteness, the dramatic cliffs, the glorious sunshine. Did I mention the sea? This Cretan idyll is a wonderful place to stay if you want to get away from it all and wallow in a shore cove paradise. Admittedly there's no beach, but beaches are to be found nearby. In any case you can...

This hotel is well worth a visit for a short amount of time. Before you set of I would advise researching the journey. The roads aren't the best and sometimes get extremely narrow. However, on arrival you will be impressed with your surroundings. There is plenty of room for parking cars and you are greeted with some fabulous views. When...

Really cool location for diving, snorkelling or just jumping off the cliffs into the pristine clear blue water. The facilities seems to be great some time ago, but definitely need more maintenance. Food was good, but go for all inclusive option, otherwise the only drink you will get at dinner is water. Not even kids soft drinks can be obtained...

Spent a week here in August 2016. Would agree that Greek 4* is not equivalent to UK 4*, but I kind of expected that. The room we had was fine, quite large, decent bed and bathroom was fine. Air con worked very well (we left it on all day so it was cool when we got back). Cleaned daily to...

Breath taking is the only way to describe the location of this hotel. It is isolated by a 5 minute car drive to main town or a20min walk up hill to another beach.
