Perfect money/value, 8km to balos beach (last hotel on the way there), clean rooms, very friendly people, Wifi everywhere, good thing - junior suite has a gas burner. One minus/plus is that nothing is happening in 10km radius. One hint: it's better to go to balos beach by ship from Kissamos (25€) than go by car. Very bad road, You... More

Nice, basic hotel, with self cooking facilities as well as a buffet breakfast and dinner option. Good wifi throughout, and very helpful staff. The minus, very isolated, unless you have your own transport. No local shops nearby, and the local beach is not great... But for seeing the beautiful Balos Lagoon, this is the closest hotel you can get.

we stayed 3 nights at balos beach hotel. the first night we were given a room which was too close to the lobby and the restaurant area, therefore too noisy. on top of that the mattresses were in a poor condition and not comfortable to sleep on. the air condition wasn't working properly neither. the next morning, following our request,...

We have been in this hotel for three times already and it will not be the last time. The room is large and clean. The view of Balos beach is fantastic, either from the room, the pool or the bar area. The personal is very friendly and tries eveything to help no matter what question we had. The hotel itself... More

Large rooms, clean, simple, good breakfast. Close to Balos Beach and pretty close to Falassarna, but the hotel is very isolated. In fact, you can't reach any place, both restaurants or the closer small village of kaliviani without the car. The staff at the reception was gentle.

It's a good place to visit the West. Our room was simple but large, and we enjoyed the sea view every breakfast/diner in our balcony. There is a beautiful pool and a beach where you can do some snorkeling. The snack food is not very tasty but you can cook in the apartment. We didn't try the restaurant.

Very comfortable hotel with a wonderful view on the gulf and relaxin atmosphere. Perfect as a point of departure to the astonishing beauty of Balos beach, but also close to Falassarna and not far from Elafonisi. We were there five days in mid July with my wife and our two daughters. The room was comfortable and wide the view on... More

I would recommend this hotel for those who want an escape from noisy cities.The best for families with youngsters and older people. The area is away form noisy roads, next to olive tree farm and some lovely goats graze across the hotel. A car is a must here, because there is no other way to reach the nearby town or... More
