The room on the second floor was really nice. The bed was comfortable, and you could cook something small in the kitchen. The staff was really friendly. The garden is really beautiful, its own swimming pool and the sea right next to it. I highly recommend!
We really liked the cleanliness at the apartments, nice view and quiet place in town. Best sun sets and sounds of the ocean. Next to it is really awesome beach bar with best breakfast and brunch! We would recommend to everyone! Stuff is so nice and we enjoyed each second here! We will return here for sure!
Comfortable, well-appointed and perfectly located, the Porto Kalyves Hotel Seaside Apartments was our home-away-from-home for a delightful three weeks. Our one-bedroom suite was clean, comfortable, well-appointed and more than adequately stocked. The large balcony was our go-to place to start and end our days -- sipping coffee in the morning watching all the activity on the bay: cruise ships, ferries and naval vessels. A nighttime glass of wine was accompanied by incredible starry skies and the twinkle of lights from Kalyves and the surrounding villages. A quick few steps across the street each morning and then the big decision was right or left -- each brought us to a beautiful beach. The food at Cactus Bistro was superb, and Panos and his staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. By the time we left, we had begun to feel like family. All in all, a wonderful stay, and we highly recommend Porto Kalyves Hotel Seaside Apartments.…
Panos and Ioanna have something very special. The location overlooks the bay which is a wonderful place to start with breakfast. The food is fantastic (try the burger) and it goes to show how good it is with the Kalyves residents coming here as well. The AC worked extremely well but equally pleasant with the direct sea breeze straight into the apartment.
We stayed for 1 week and enjoed ourselves very much everything! Amazing place with a fantastic location, view comfort, cleaners, and service. rooms have everything you need. Very nice and comfortable bedroom looking to back yard and thus isolated from any sort of noise. The village of Kalyves is an excellent place to stay - two beaches just a minute walk from the property, tavernas, shops, and fabulous Cretan village atmosphere. Good to hire a car to explore Chania and its surroundings and as well some sightseeing around. Highly recommended and feels like coming back again here.
Stayed at the Porto Kalyves Apartments for 2 nights at the start of our holiday. The apartments were great, we had a lovely sea view and we received a very warm welcome. We would happily stay here again!
After such an uncertain year, and having our original holiday cancelled, Hubby and I decided we needed a week of total relaxation. These apartments are perfect for this kind of holiday. Situated on the edge of Kalyves, within walking distance to beaches, supermarkets and restaurants. Joanna and her team are excellent hosts, nothing is too much trouble. The apartments are basic but very clean and comfortable, with two balconies, and all have a fantastic sea view. We will return next year 🤞
This was our second time here and apart from the addition of a breakfast/ coffee shop, nothing has changed. Still a warm welcome, rooms very clean and COVID-19 secure and a great seaview from the balcony. Its located on the main road into Kalyves but it's never noisy due to excellent soundproofing and makes accessibility to all the surrounding beaches easy. Walking distance to all the very good restaurants. Breakfast in the adjoining Cactus Coffee shop is also excellent
It's the first time that I want to leave such a good review of a property. I have been an assistant Front Office Manager for 5 years in Limassol, Cyprus and can tell if the service is good or not. From the moment of our arrival, the managers Panayiotis and Ioanna have been super polite, accommodating and helpful. Anything you ask is not a trouble to them. The apartment is clean and tidy, the A/C works perfectly and everything you need is there. There are 2 balconies, one with a direct view of the sea, which offers magestic sunrises and the other overlooking the hill where you can dry your clothes. Often goats come and graze on that hill, so keep your cameras close. The cleaning lady from Skopje, Nevenka is one of the most hard-working chambermaids I have seen. Even cleaning the balconies in the blazing sun. The Cactus bar below the apartments with its wonderful employees is a great place to have a coffee or cocktail. Everyone is smiling, super polite and make you feel at home. Although all the employees are great there, I want to especially thank Josephine for her service and great smile. I really think many 5 star hotels can take lessons on the service quality and politeness of Panayiotis, Ioanna, Nevenka and Josephine. I think half the experience in hospitality depends on the human factor, and they excel in that, no doubt. The center of Kalyves village is 5-10 minutes to the right of the apartments on foot, and a big supermarket is 3 minutes to the left. Me and my wife had a fantastic time and our anniversary here will be a memorable one. Thank you guys! Love, Elias & Anastasia …
