My husband and I visited GK Beach hotel with our 6 month year old son and we loved it. The hotel is beautifully located and the staff are fantastic. It is a perfect spot to go with a new baby as it has everything you need close by - baby pool, restaurant, beach and airport. The staff provided a high... More

This was the first time we had travelled with SimpsonTravel and we were so impressed with them that we have booked another of their hotels this year. The setting at GK is stunning and makes for a very relaxing holiday - you can take a few steps from the pool to the lovely beach with sunbeds and umbrellas. The accomodation... More

We have just returned from a fabulous week at the GK Beach Hotel. If you are looking for a hotel literally right beside the beach, this is it. The small size of the hotel means there is a special friendly atmosphere around the place. The rooms are all suites and whilst not luxurious are comfortable and spotlessly clean. The staff... More

Just back from a week staying at the GK Beach Hotel - our first time in Crete. The hotel has a great beachside location and guests can simply wander from the terrace straight onto the sand and, (if brave in May!) on into the water. As Simpson travel veterans, we have come to expect good personal levels of service and... More

We had a wonderful couple of weeks at the GK. It's location is great - right on a lovely sandy beach. It isn't luxurious, though the rooms are clean and shipshape. The staff are friendly and helpful. We met lots of new friends and our two kids (9 and 6) had plenty of English speaking children to play with, which... More

My Wife and I have just returned from a two week holiday spent at GK Beach Hotel and what a wonderful holiday we had. We found Simpson Travel unexpectadly on the Computer and glad that we did, for from the time of our initial enquiry they dealt with all the holiday details with friendly efficiency with tickets, Boarding Passes etc...

We stayed at this hotel in September. The weather was perfect, the setting really nice. The hotel is almost on a sandy beach with it's own area of sun beds and umbrellas. There is a nice swimming pool with extremely comfy loungers, only criticism from our point of view is that the umbrellas are too small and fixed to the... More

If you are looking for a holiday to relax, swim, read, enjoy good food - look no further. Of course, the more energetic can find local walks etc, but we found it difficult to leave the surroundings. Very pleasant, roomy and airy bedrooms, nicely landscaped gardens leading to the pool and restaurant, and only a few steps further on, a... More

We have just returned from the GK Beach Hotel and cannot praise it highly enough. The hotel owners Yiannis and Katerina, along with Simpson Travel representative - Harvey, and the outstanding staff team were just so welcoming, thoughtful and attentive throughout our holiday. They all worked incredibly hard to ensure that we had a lovely and relaxing stay. The hotel... More

I don't normally write comments but I could not remain selfish this time and keep this little gem of a place to myself. GK Beach is spot on and ideal for mature couples once the children are back at school. The owners are to be praised for their enthusiasm in maintaining an enjoyable facility but the most outstanding service is... More
