We stayed in this hotel for some days this summer and, considering the standard this was really very very nice. The room was big with a very beautiful balcony with sea view. The pool was big and clean. We did not eat in the hotel but all other services were really very good. I strongly recommend it.

We stayed here for just 1 night, the room was massive and we had quite the nice view of the sea. The shower for some reason had no curtain and the bathroom was leaking 99% of the time, other than that the staff were extremely helpful and it was a 30 minute walk from the port to get to Balos...

We stayed in Balos Beach Hotel for a week in aug 2013 and went as a couple. Stayed in room 209. The hotel appeared to be what we expected: private place with well kept grounds and a pool. It appeared the hotel was fully booked while we were staying, but we still felt very private, not crowded at all. The... More

I always felt that Greek hospitality is the most important factor, when one chooses summer holidays in Greece. Well, this is not the point at all in Balos beach hotel. We chose it for its location, through the Balos beach hotel site and booked it through the phone for a family holiday. The rooms were large and spacious but all... More

All rooms have a beautiful view overlooking the bay of Kissamos. The accommodation is plain but simple. A few pictures on the wall wouldn't go amiss! Very spacious rooms accommodating up to four people. Ideally situated for the Balos Beach lagoon accessible via a 9km dirt track. There is then a 2km walk to the beach. I must admit I... More

On a splendid location like this the low quality of accommodation makes a contrast. The apartment was badly maintained, rusty air conditioner, broken lamp hanging on the wall, broken toilet seat, no curtain in the bathroom. The kitchen was poorly equipped: 3 glasses for 4 persons and one was broken, the plates and mugs were stained and the overall condition... More

We had a beautiful room with a balcon just on the sea, hearing the waves as the only noise. The service is very careful and effective. The pool is very good. Best possible access to the wonderful Balos beach, but also close to Falassarna. Good price for value balance.

We stayed over Balos Beach Hotel, June 2013. The Hotel facilities, to be honest were not in the best condition and the location was a kind of remote. But there were positive facts over our stay: -Hotel staff was positive & gave us info about visiting Balos. -There was a good view outside our hotel room, in front of the... More

The hotel is large and from the outside it looks well kept. However the rooms look tired. Sltough cleand and very large (with seaview and a large terrace) they are furnished with old stuff and lack any charm whatdoever. Breakfast was not that good. The pool is ok, however, and the staff polite. Location is excellent to visit the beautiful... More

I chose this hotel for its strategic position to visit the spectacular beach of Balos. In fact, the hotel is situated at the beginning of the dirt road that leads to the magnificent locations. A word of advice: do not be impressed by those who say that the road is not passable by normal car, with a little bit of... More
