The location of this hotel is exotic. Finding the place may be difficult but once you reach, very relaxing atmosphere awaits you. Don't expect five star luxury but overall the hotel is good. Food is great. Evening entrainment is also lively but mostly for kids.

The surroundings of the hotel are perfect and the rocky swimming area is nice. Otherwise the hotel is pretty much stuck in the 90's. There are a few smaller infinity pools which would be nice if they weren't situated in the middle of the parking lot. There is also a bigger pool but the area around it isn't very comfortable....

After 10 nights in Chania we (2 adults and 2 kids) went to Plakias in our rental car to stay at the Kalypso hotel. The hotel is located on a mountain side at the end of a mountain road. By car it take 5-10 minutes to travel to the popular Damnoni beach, Plakias town or some of the other small... More

I'll start by saying that we got a screamin deal on the price for a 3 night stay here so we were ok with the fact that the resort was very outdated and a bit run down. (We did not have all inclusive). I can imagine that it was in it's hay day back in the 90's. It is a... More

Just back from Kalypso Cretan Village Resort. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience from the moment of arrival to the sad moment it was time to leave. Room and resort very clean; staff friendly and helpful. The geography of the island makes this resort well off the beaten track and you feel completely isolated from the rest of the world. The views... More

Different from the landscapes of northern Crete, the south is rugged and rocky - very unique. This hotel is sitting at the end of a road in the middle of nowhere, which we found very charming. Nice lagoon with clear water. Little noisy around the pools with the animators blasting same tracks day after day. Cozy buffet restaurant offering sufficient... More

As many people on here mentioned, Kalypso Cretan Village hotel is a nest for the hawks. Its position in the rocks, overlooking the Libyan sea gives you the feeling that you don't want to leave ever. When we were driving to the hotel my partner enjoyed the cliff road and I appreciated the view. You have to drive carefully though,... More

Are you looking for a location that is away from the noise of typical tourist areas? Do you enjoy swimming? Can you walk up hills? We had a room overlooking the resort, with 70 irregular stairs to climb from the pool level to our room. The balcony is tiny but if you climb over the table, two can sit outside... More
