Stayed at this hotel in October.after researching this hotel on hotels .com it looked the perfect place for us to stay for two nights as we were visiting Crete .we feel we were mis-sold on this accommodation due to the photographs on the website which showed the Resturant & bar being open which was not the case and we believe was closed for a long time previous .

Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on tripadvisor. We are are very sorry that we didn't met your expetetions regarding our restaurant, but before your reservation we had anounched the dates of closing of our restaurant on hotel.com, on booking.com and of course on our official website, probably you miss to read this information. we hope to be able to host you again in the future during the period that our restaurant will be open for dinner as well. During your 2 days stay, we served you a Greek breakfast and our staff has recommended to you 3 local restaurants which are located just 2 minutes walking from our hotel. Thank you for staying with us. Best regards, The team of Kaliviani Traditional Hotel.

Nice, spacious apartments with an astounding sunrise view in the morning. Breakfast is served personally with fresh coffee and orange juice and lots of delicious treats. However, the owner is who makes this place special. He gave lots of perfect advice on places to visit. I had two very memorable days in Kaliviani. Thanks again!

If you arrive after 23.30 no one in reception, and no one answer to your call. You can sleep under the stars. An astonishing welcome. Now we hope that the permanence will be better that the arrive. Never happen that there was no one in hotel, and no one that answer to telephone. Never happened around the world

The guest arrived at 01:00 after midnight without a prior notice, the check in close at 22:00. We have send him an email the day before about his time of arrival but we didn’t get any answer. The guest get in the hotel through the kitchen, he took a key that he found at the reception and went in a room by himself. We never had an experience like that the last 22 years. The guest has been reported as non-show by the hotel to the Expedia travel company.

Stumbled upon this hotel incidentally while searching for a place to stay near Balos Beach. I’ve never liked to dine in the hotel but it turned out to be a great dining experience. I’d dined in the hotel restaurant Mama’s Dinner throughout my 4 night stay. It served traditional Cretan food with a twist. Yiannis (the owner and Chef) turned the traditional sea bass dish into elegant dish with mashed beetroot sauce. There’s good Cretan wine to accompany as well. Who would expect a fine dining in a small village?? There’re five rooms in the hotel, all with seaview. It’s clean and there’s balcony for us to enjoy the view. One advice I would like to share is that you need to rent a car to get to the hotel. Otherwise, taxi will cost 90€ and you will not be able to get around Balos and Elafonissi beaches easily. I’ve booked a car at the airport but unfortunately, Hertz didn’t want to accept Malaysian driving licence although clearly there’s an English translation in it. Luckily, Yiannis helped us to find a company to rent a car with full insurance as well. The company sent the car to the hotel and we were able to return it in the airport. It turned out to be cheaper than the one from Hertz. Yiannis had definitely made our stay in Crete island a memorable one as we could go to Balos and elafonissi beaches. The driving route was scenic. Thanks Yiannis!!
