Don't let the entrance fool you. Behind the mediocre entrance is a little gem. The rooms are spacious and set up for self catering. The faciltiies are limited but excellent. The pool is large and spacious enough to allow for conscious adults to do lengths whilst the kids keep themselves busy. this is a tiny enclave, so it never gets... More

This lovely hotel is the kind you are selfishly tempted to keep secret - you realise that half the clientele has come back time and again and so will you. The GK stands for galazio kima - literally 'azure wave' - and blue is the unifying tone of the decor throughout the resort. It's set on a mile of golden... More

Staying on another part of the island but used the beach facilities at the hotel that are available to non-residents (assume your supposed to have a drink or lunch) - we did both and had a very relaxing day and a great swim. Service was excellent and very friendly. Facilities of the hotel look very good.

Delightful small hotel with the personal touch. It's very clean and the rooms are well equipped, even having a sink, electric hotplate, kettle, crockery, pans and cutlery etc, which meant we could do some simple self catering for lunch. We had all our evening meals in the hotel as the food was excellent, reasonably priced, and the waiting staff were... More

We stayed at the GK Beach Hotel for two weeks in May. The hotel is right on the sandy beach and swimming in both sea and the good sized Hotel Pool were good. Our room on the 1st floor was spacious and clean with a decent sea view slightly restricted by a large palm tree. The breakfasts were fantastic with... More

...just like the beer! A great small hotel in a smashing location - on a nice beach, mountains in the background, pleasant village in walking distance. Some good tavernas in the village but the daily special in the restaurant just too tempting - sea bream was brilliant. Reserved loungers on the beach and comfy ones around the pool and the... More

This is a lovely restaurant which is open to non- residents and offers a comprehensive menu from freash seafood to pasta dishes. They cook one special per day and you have to book in advance if you want it. The bar and restaurant area is traditionally furnished in blue and white and is by the sea with panoramic views. We...

Hotel was clean and well managed. The staff we met were, without exception, all lovely and very helpful. Right on the beach with plenty of sun loungers there and around the very sizeable pool. Plenty of tavernas within 10 minutes walk and the hotel hired a car for us at reasonable cost and this was a bonus, enabling us to... More
