My partner and I stayed at Caretta Beach for 5 days and had a wonderful time. All of the staff, especially Barbara and Thea, were so welcoming and kind. Upon arrival I informed Barbara of my gluten allergy and she was able to accomodate me, adjusting dishes as necessary to make sure I always had a full, happy tummy. She... More

My wife, daughter and I stayed here for two weeks in August and the first thing I would say is that the people working here are the most considerate and genuine people, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Its a very quiet resort, with a hotel quite close by, on either side. But it's a rural beachside setting and... More

We stayed there last summer (we came from Lithuania, the owners organized us a taxi to and from the hotel) and were more then happy about everything, especially location and restaurant food. Owners were just fantastic. It is a really wonderful small family hotel. Barbara cooked every day for our one year baby boy and we enjoyed all the meal.... More

We have been 1 week in this hotel very close to Platanias. The staff is very kind and always for help and suggestions. Rooms are ok. The hotel has direct access to the beach, where you can get 1 umbrella and 2 beds for 2.5 €. Also, the location of the hotel is very convenient since it is easy to... More

Very friendly and attentive staff, fantastic/picturesque location, couldn't ask for more. Room was small/basic, but had everything we needed & really only treated as a place to crash at night anyway. My daughter was over the moon to have seen a turtle on the beach - even though it was an injured one being re-released after treatment.

Caretta Beach in Gerani is a fantastic small family hotel with superior service, great appartments, a beautiful pool and close to a super sand beach with clear water. The hotel team with Barbara, Thea, Klara, and Vera is always friendly and helps you in all matters. The food served at the restaurant is gorgious. It's the perfect base for a... More

We stayed for a week at Caretta Beach and enjoyed complete relaxation. The rooms were always clean. You can pick between pool and beach (lifeguard was present). The food is excellent. Adults and kids, everybody was pleased and enjoyed the meals. Always fresh, always a great taste! We experienced a high level of service and thoughtfulness during our stay. We... More

We were two families that stayed at the Caretta Beach Apartments in July 2013. We would like to thank Thea, Barbara, the family Kapsalakis and the whole team for their amazing hospitality. As always the rooms were kept very clean and tidy. We had a really beautiful view over the sea. The kids loved the pool and there were plenty... More
