Just a lovely hotel that ticks so many boxes. The location is perfect with two of its own beach areas, lovely, air conditioned rooms, friendly, helpful staff and a plentiful selection of food. We arrived here around half 10 in the evening with a warm welcome and a plate of food in our room. The rooms are of a good standard with en suite and balcony. The beds are comfortable and the rooms cleaned every day. The staff are outstanding with a special mention to two in particular. Stephy on the bar who is so attentive and friendly and has a smile brighter than the sun and Dominic, the Animator, who acknowledged everybody and worked tirelessly to keep people and children entertained. There is a wonderful selection of food at every serving; it can be a little repetitive but always good quality. If you're all inclusive the drinks can be endless but, of course, are only of the 'local' type. The location is excellent, right on the sea front, there are plenty of subnets and MOST importantly, no ridiculous scraps to get a towel on one at 5 in the morning!!!! In fact, one day, we walked into the beach at 1 p.m and got 2 beds straight away. It's such a relief to know you haven't got a hotel full of senseless morons who fight over the beds! There's more than enough for all. There were a lot of eastern Europeans but this is no problem at all. The resort is small with only a few shops but the beach is long and never overcrowded. There is evening entertainment, a gym, pool table and so on. If you want a nice, HASSLE free, relaxing holiday Kalyves Beach Hotel is the place for you. Loved it!

Terrible experience at checkin. Manager was yelling at one of the staff in Greek while we were checking in. Didn't care that we were standing there waiting. Young woman helping us at desk didn’t speak English well. Thought she said I didn’t pay for the room when we already had online. Actually it was the 3 euro vat tax she was asking for total language miscommunication. Door to Room was open when we got there. No safe key. Shower floor leaks onto the floor. Have to pay 1.5 euro to rent beach towels? This isn't a 4 star hotel. Everything is worn and needs updating. Room cost $112 including breakfast and dinner so I guess it’s just Okey doke but still disappointing. Achilles the bartender saved the day for this hotel. Breakfast was a huge buffet and totally fine. Dinner buffet was less than stellar. Pools were very nice. Entire place needs serious redecorating. Hasn’t been done seen the 70’s probably when it was built. Very dated.

Return visit as lasted visited 7yrs ago, pool and location still wonderful, staff as always lovely. Beach access from pool area without having to cross a road is great. Change of owners this year n some things need a refresh / update. Restaurant menu great for lunch v. Short for dinner, but you can preorder fish which was simply cooked. V. few restaurants close by, loads 15-30 mins walk. Supermarket 5mins walk. Walked into local countryside from hotel which was stunning, loads of options. Car hire great idea, but a lot of things are quite a long drive due to the roads. Used hotel mini bus which was expensive but v. handy n easy. Room fridge/ cooking area has most things u will need, knife, kettle n tea towel etc. Spotless.

From the moment we arrived we were in love with this hotel. Tranquil lobby and a very nice hotel throughout. Beautifully situated with just steps to the beach. We received a very nice & warm welcome by the Reception staff. In particular Penelope and Mary, who were excellent, and very accommodating. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. Food is very good and plentiful ! We would definitely recommend this hotel to couples as well as families with children.

I have never felt so taken care of. The staff was so attentive to my needs it was just unreal. Penelope, Mary and Peli, we so wonderful from billing, power converters, Iron. And the list went on. They were always there with a smile and a solution. The bar staff in particular Ms Stephania was so wonderful, funny and kind, took such great care of me by a private beach. She too made sure that everything she did was nothing short of awesome. The room was so comfortable, the property was very clean and comfortable. This is the place for an amazing adventure in Crete. There is no way you could not have nothing short of the time of your life.
