We visited Kyknos hotel in August 2016. All was fine, starting from the welcome and finishing with the staff attitude. The staff is perfect and always to help. Special credit goes to Despoina and Nassos who attract by their charisma and hospitality. In addition the food is great with thematic dinners on week-ends. It is a green and well kept... More

Just returned this month. The hotel seems perfect in the brochure and web site however if you are in annex buildings opposite the hotel entrance, the rooms need refurbishment, if you are on the ground floor your patio opens up on to a 5ft hedge with no view and no privacy. The pictures advertised are of the rooms in the... More

I had high hopes for this hotel and in some areas it did not disappoint. Not everything is as good as you might expect though with some major failings on the part of Thomas Cook. We had a child protection incident! We travelled as two families with four boys 9, 7, 6 and 3. All of the boys used the... More

Dear tedtheinvincible! Thank you for taking the time to write such a long review about our hotel, mentioning even the littlest detail! You write, close to the end that you can't be bothered to write anything more, although you had written around 2000-2500 words already, so I guess you were bothered indeed... I am not sure, but I think you... More

We spent a week in July at Kyknos Beach as a three generation family of 8. With four children aged 9,7,5 & 2 I had a very specific list of what I wanted from our holiday, and I'm delighted to say that Kyknos Beach met all of these. The rooms we had were not ones that had been refurbished yet... More

I'm on my last day at Kyknos following a very hot week at 34degrees most days. The hotel is friendly, clean and efficient. It doesn't get too crowded with a variety of clientele, mostly couples/families. The entertainment is Greek dancing, singing and belly dancing. The rooms in the bungalows are tired but clean. 14euros for a safe key and there... More

My wife and I stayed for two weeks last year. Excellent hotel, staff very helpful and friendly. I unfortunately cannot sit out in the sun, hence I spent my mornings in the gym.

I booked a last minute package holiday via Thomas Cook. The hotel was lovely - we paid a little extra to get the 'sea view' rooms, which seem to be the recently renovated rooms. They were very clean and modern with nice decor. Plenty of space for clothes and belongings and the shower was good. Only complaints is that one... More
