You have only to read all the reviews to know this is a top spot .Perfect location, very comfortable rooms, charming and very helpful staff and a chef who produces excellent food. We had 2 weeks here with our teenage boys and we all gave it 10/10. Kalives is less than half an hour from Chania and 45 minutes from... More

We have spent 2 very relaxing weeks at this wonderful resort. We were welcomed at Chania airport by Ray and he quickly got our taxi. On arrival at GK Sarah was waiting for us and again quickly showed us to our apartment and gave us any information we required at that time. Our apartment 7M was very nice high up... More

The week at GK Beach Hotel was the most relaxing and pleasurable I've ever spent. The location, accommodation and ambience cannot be faulted. Everything has been carefully designed to maximise one's enjoyment; the friendly, helpful and professional staff ensure that this is so from start to finish. I cannot recommend GK and Simpson Travel highly enough.

We've just returned from a perfect week in this jewel of an hotel. It looks like the brochure/website (amazing)and it and us are well looked after from start to finish. The Simpson's team are so very efficient, helpful and friendly; the hotel staff the same. The gardens are delightful and the beach and sea the stuff of holiday dreams. So... More

Mind you, it does help when your bags are the first off the carousel, and the Simpson Travel "meet and greet" effortlessly whisks you to your waiting taxi! A short drive of about twenty five minutes brings you to the delightful location: turquoise seas, pale sands and a profusion of pretty coloured Oleander and Bourgainvillea and not a "high rise"...

The GK Beach Hotel did not disappoint. We travelled with our two children aged 6 and 9 during the half term week. We hadn't visited Crete previously, so didn't really know what to expect. On arrival at the airport we were promptly greeted by the Simpson Travel ground staff (David and Sarah), who were fantasic! The hire car was ready... More

An elegant and relaxing hotel in the pretty and authentically cretan town of Kalives. The friendly and attentive staff made me most welcome; I loved the immaculate pool amid beautiful gardens right on the beach.

This was my sixth time on the Island of Crete and my Fiance's first. I'd been both to the east and west sides of the island and this time, as we both really needed a break, we opted for the quieter west side. This is a Simpson Travel exclusive hotel and the guys at Simpson travel barely put a foot... More

My wife and I brought our 1 year old daughter here on the recommendation of a friend. We were delighted with everything about the trip. The transfer from the airport was quite quick and the welcome we received was very friendly, including a generous welcome food pack. The room had a cot and baby bath supplied. We were on a... More
