Just back from a week's holiday at the Kakkos Beach with my daughter. Wanted a break after a long working year and couldn't dream better...The place is just so beautiful and we were lucky to have great weather. Sea temperature perfect. Room with private pool to enjoy swimming at any time. The people there looked after us with great attention and everything is done to please visitors. the room was clean and well looked after all week. Thank you Machi ! The bed was excellent. As for the restaurant and bar (all inclusive) the food is simply at the top. Thank you to the Chef ! A special thought for the waiters and waitresses (Dimitris...Maria... and their colleagues) who were always there to help and with a constant smile on their faces ! It was so pleasant to feel so welcome. and so hard to leave them on the last day ! At the reception same attention. I wish to particularly thank Nikos who was great with us and his mini car service, always helpful. Also thank you so much Natacha who was so great at the bar and so friendly. Last but not least, most areas into the hotel are disabled - friendly ! We can't wait to go back ! Martine and Sharleen

We only spent a week there in beggining of October, but it was a great week. We fortunately had nice weather and could enjoy almost all the place has to offer in terms of seaside relax. The beaches were beatiful, both the longer, more open ones, and the cozy patch surrounded by small rocky clifs with a neat, short access to the resort bar. I enjoyed the bar a lot, and this goes both for the service I could get there, and the sea view I had when enjoying the drinks. The service was superb, and the staff very helpful each time we had any questions. The food: also very good. Only issue was that I ate too much. We didn't use the spa services, but we took yoga classes during our stay and it was a welcome chance to move a bit more. My wife also did some scuba diving with the instructor working with the hotel. She didn't have any previous experience with this activity, but she certainly enjoyed it and can now recommend it to anyone willing to try. Accessing the place requires some time, but I think it's worth it. Overall, we had great time there.

We had a wonderfull week in the hotel. The room was renovated and clean. It would be good to have towel holders in the bathroom. We had a beautiful sea view. The staff in the restaurand, beach bar room cleaning and reception was very friendly and reliable. The food was good and varied a lot. Sometimes the restaurant was a bit noisy and too much cooled. The beach was beautiful wich small round gravel and rocks at the sides. While snorkling we could see many different fish just near the beach. The beach esp. at the weekend was crowded. In Total an excelent hotel.

Spacious and quiet room, cleaned every single day. Variety of tasty food and drinks where everyone finds something he/she likes and which does not become boring even after 2 weeks. Beach reserved only for clients of Kakkos Beach Hotel, well kept, with small pebbles. Sun loungers and parasols free of charge. I would recommend Kakkos Beach Hotel to everyone looking for a quiet and relaxing vacation. The best thing about the whole hotel is the FRIENDLY and HELPFUL STAFF, without exaggeration the best I have ever seen. No wonder, we hear, that one client returned twice in a year and some others come back every summer. The farewell, when the hotel staff comes to say goodbye to the guests and wave them while they are leaving by the bus, is just a beautiful icing on the cake confirming the excellent level of service.

Our stay was one of the best we"ve ever had. Starting with the room, it had everything we needed during our stay. Cleaned every day, with a comfortable, giant bed, quiet, wonderfully cooling A/C and two different kinds of pillows to choose from: firmer or more fluffy. As for the restaurant :) Food: exceptional, everything fresh and yummy. Staff: always smiling and ready to help (big thank you to Manto, Manna, Spirodoula, Dmitris, Kostas, Nikos) The beach: beautiful setting and views. The water is crystal clear. As it is a pebble beach, older people might have some difficulty in getting in and out of the water, but it is managable. Beach shoes are a good idea, only because the pebbles get really hot, but once in the water they aren't needed. The biggest surprise was on the departure day: the management crew personally came to say goodbye to each of the guests, helped with the luggage and waved us off. It was a wonderful experience, one I would recommend to everyone!

Beautiful atmospheric hotel, wonderfully located, with a beautiful garden and friendly staff who care about cleanliness and the entire area, including the beach. The food in the restaurant is delicious, and the mood for evening feasts in the bar is exceptional. The holiday passed peacefully, in the company of equally calm adults. A big plus for the lack of any animations. The cicadas and the sound of the waves gave solace. It was very sad to leave - the staff personally said goodbye to the departing guests! :)

Truly wonderful experience! Everybody in the hotel is nice and smiling all the time. We have never met such friendly staff. The hotel manager is personally coming to guests to get their feedback. There is always plenty of free sunbeds on the beach during the day. Food was delicious every single day. The sea is amazing but the pebbles get very hot throughout the day so don't forget flip flops. All the provided details give out of this world experience during your stay here. We will definitely come back one day!

This is a beautiful hotel. It offers pleasantly appointed rooms, with gorgeous views, nice pools and access to a gravel beach. (Take your beach shoes along). We had excellent food in the restaurant here. All meals are served buffet style but there is a an excellent selection and each evening is themed. Things are very well labeled and as gluten-free eater, it was easy to navigate. We had booked a full board package. The wait staff and cleaning staff were lovely, very pleasant and friendly. But that being said, we only ate lunch here once, as we were out exploring Crete most of the time. We had an unpleasant experience at check-in that unfortunately continued throughout our stay. The junior suite we had booked and paid for 8 months in advance was unavailable. Initially, they said our reservation was for a double room, I then showed them our confirmation for a junior suite and asked to meet with the manager about this. This request was met with the firm assertion from the front desk clerk: "the manager is not available to you. You have a double room; this is how it is and how it will be for today, we will see about a suite tomorrow". We were then shown to a double room with a lovely sea view and told we could wait until 12:30 the next day and then move all our things to a junior suite in another building. The next morning I went to the front desk and again asked to speak to the manager about the mix-up, once again I was told he was not available to me!). We all know that errors can happen, but no apology was ever offered and no explanation for why this had happened either. Instead, we are expected to give up our plans for the holiday (hey we have only 5 days!) and spend our time waiting so that they disperse rooms as they see fit and not in accordance with what was booked (not very customer friendly!) and not a great start to our vacation which was sorely needed. Finally so that we could go on with our holiday and not waste a day waiting to move rooms, I asked to stay in the same room we were in. I was then informed, well, that room was not available for the rest of the week! Hard to believe the day before we were scheduled to stay there all week, and suddenly the room was not available! After the desk clerk, deal with a few other patrons, she made a cal, presumably to speak to the manager? And we were informed we could stay in the same room. It was fine, not what we booked, but fine. A day or two later they offered us dinner at the Taverna next door. Remember we did have full board, but we accepted the dinner at the Taverna, it cost them about 50€ and unfortunately was more of a punishment, when compared to the most likely delicious hotel dinner we did not eat that evening. Between the room types, there is a price difference of about 120€; imagine my surprise upon check out when they insisted we pay 24€ in taxes! Considering they were up 120€, you would think they would cover the tax out of that money, but no things got quite unpleasant, again no manager was available. I finally gave up and paid the tax. Although, the hotel is beautiful and the food was excellent. The experience at the front desk was so unpleasant, it cast a pall over what was supposed to be a relaxing and serene vacation, I cannot recommend staying here. Had we not had this experience, this hotel would deserve a higher rating, but 3 is average and a non-existent manager, unpleasant front desk staff and room reservation mix-up, make this a two-dot rating.
