We stayed in this hotel for two weeks and can say we loved it. The room had everything you needed (could do with a few more channels on the TV for the after sunbath down time before you head out). The rooms are cleaned daily. The air conditioning is a bit pricey but you sort of expect this so we... More

As we stepped off the coach we were greeted with hugs and kisses. Katerina, George, Nikkos and Eva had prepared a lovely room for us. We traveled as a couple but were meeting up with friends and family. The Kristalli was always a high standard accommodation, but the rebranding this year has taken it to the next level. The towels...
