The hotel rooms were very clean on arrival and they were also regularly cleaned throughout our week stay. The pool area was a lovely place to relax and it was never too busy when I was there. The all inclusive drinks were nice, and the barman was more than happy to introduce me to the local spirits they had as... More

I visited Kalia beach 5-12 October with my partner and our 3 year old. We had a wonderful week in Crete and the hotel was a great base. The location of the hotel couldn't have been any better. The dining room overlooks the beach and marina area and there is a lovely sandy beach 200yrds to the left of the... More

This is the most discussing hotel I have ever stayed in. To start with we arrived to a flooded room with electrical cables hanging out of the wall. The beds were soiled due to water dripping from the ceiling and walls. We were offered a different room with two single beds for 6 which is obviously inadequate so we had... More

My perception of All inclusive has been all meals and drinks provided. At Kalia Beach hotel all meals were provided, not a bad variety of dishes but not much Greek food which is what I had been informed was served.Not a good place if you don't or can't eat pork. Alcoholic drinks served were only beer,wine,ouzo,brandy and Raki other alcoholic... More
