We promised our two grandsons a beach holiday and booked this through Jet2 fairly late in the season. They did give us what we asked for, poolside rooms and the pool was good to swim in. The rooms can only be described as Spartan but then again they were spotless. Our toilet seat fell off several times a day which... More

Just back from Kalia Beach two week stay.(25th July - 8th Aug). Things to consider for your budget, air conditioning 7.00 euro a day so additional 98.00 euro for the two weeks and safety deposit box at 2.00 euro a day so addition 28 euro for a two week stay. If going to the beach and using sun loungers and... More

Having to come home. Yes all-inclusive meals are limited, but can't imagine anybody going hungry as always enough choice of pasta & salads if you don't fancy the meat dish. Rooms basic, but standard for Greece. Bathroom floor gets wet when showering, in 20yr of visiting various Greek resorts, again this is pretty normal. All-inc bar closes at 22.30, so... More

I booked a week all inclusive at the Kalia beach hotel on the whole I found it to be clean and the pool and bar area was good. The rooms were very basic although comfy but coughing up £50 on arrival for air conditioning was a bit much. The choice of food was very limited and I found on certain... More

We stayed here from 29th June- 7th July 2014 and, after reading some of the negative reviews, felt a little apprehensive. However, it soon became apparent that some people clearly go on holiday just to complain about anything and everything. We had an amazing room with lovely sea views. A broken light was fixed once it was mentioned. The staff... More

Friendly staff who did their best to help at all times. Did not hide any faults and when brought to attention of staff fixes straight away. No frill just a quiet week in the sun with clean beds and a small but varied menu. Would go back as the week felt like a month of relaxation.

Sadly coming to the end of a two week holiday here and the only complaint I have is with British people who come to a quiet old fishing village then whinge because there are no Heinz baked beans. And yes, Greek people do tend to eat Fetta Cheese but it's not compulsory as there's been a good choice of food... More
