I was worried after reading the reviews on here as to what I would find but it's the opposite of all the negative reviews - I'm beginning to wonder if I'm at the same hotel! We arrived Tuesday night for a 7 night stay. The hotel is in the centre of Stalis and right on the beach. We booked a... More

Last June 2014 we went all inclusive for the first time at the Kyknos Beach Hotel which is just down... More

The hotel is not a 5 stars hotel even in Greek standards and the service and food are at most at the level of a 2-3 stars hotel. The coffee at breakfast was bad and there was no real hot drink selection, the lunch was very poor and dinner was of low quality as well. The food in the all... More
