Now if you go to Crete for a resting holiday and don't want to travel around this is the place for you. But if you do want to discover cretan culture and history you have got...

Have you ever witnessed a guest being propositioned to a fist fight by someone working at the reception desk? That was an idea of what was to come.

Very bad choice due to the fact that the room was very old fashioned furnished and also lack of taste .The bathroom was in a bad condition and you didn't have the idea that it was cleaned. By no means I would consider it a four star hotel.

My wife and I wanted to visit Crete and celebrate my 40th birthday in the romantic and gorgeous beaches and mountains. Well, Kalypso has been the greatest surprise of our last vacation. This was my 7th visit to Crete in the past...
