This hotel is set in a very special location on the edge of the Libian sea. It is peaceful, enclosed by rocks and no doubt the best place to stay on the south coast of Crete. It is a paradise for hiking/walking. The options are numerous with organised walks by local guides, walks to local beaches, in both directions, over... More

We recently booked a last minute break at this resort and we have to say it was fantastic. This has to be the first resort I have ever been to where the experience was better than the brochure. From the moment we checked in all our cares and stress were left behind. The various places to spread out and sunbathe... More

Only one thing stops this getting 5 stars - the thump of the disco every night. But SO many positives more than make up for this - the pools, the food, the narrow inlet from the sea - clear and deep - once a hiding place for pirates. The spa was great - the massage excellent. All the staff were... More

Have to look at this place on Google Earth to really appreciate where it is. It is built right into the cliffs above a small rocky inlet a couple of km south of Plakias. Finding the place could be a challenge if you’re in a hire car and you didn’t take the sat-nav option. It might be a good idea... More

Dear guest, thank you for your kind comments. As you pointed out, the calypso is located in the southern part of Crete between hanging cliffs and turquoise waters. It is one of the best diving spot of the island and one of the few ones that can also be used during windy days which are common in Crete during the... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your kind comments and for the tips for the surrounding area. To me, the Beach of Prevelli is one of the most (if not the most) beautiful beaches of Crete. It is situated between two cliffs and in the middle of the only palm grove of the island. There is a little river running in... More

Nice and special, but not for longer then 2-3 days. The diving school is the best of all! Its worthed! There are people leaving their towels on the pool chairs, so there are never free chairs around the pools, while the chairs are beeing used only by the towels! There is only one little store working with specific hours so... More

The location is great but the resort looks a bit tired. Accommodation was comfortable with air-condition. Food was very good. Staff was friendly. Good facilities for swimming and sunbathing. Experienced problems with drainage all the time which meant the bathroom floor was always wet with water from somewhere. This was reported and partly fixed. Ten mites drive from centre of... More
