We have just returned from a holiday in Crete, staying at GK Beach Hotel. This is the second time we have visited GK Beach this year because we just love the peaceful, quite location and the friendly staff at the Hotel. We have stayed in 6M and 7M which are both lovely but 7M (Kolatsos suite) is the one we prefer. The beds are very comfortable and GK Beach is one of the few Hotels where we don’t suffer from backache by the third day.
GK Beach is small family run Hotel and all the staff really tried to make our stay comfortable, from providing pashminas for the ladies when it gets colder at night, sharing local knowledge and providing advice on places to visit.
Breakfast is provided and there was always a great selection to choose from including fresh coffee, fruit, a hot selection and the owners own local yoghurt and honey and home made sweets.
The sandy beach is quiet with sunbeds and shades reserved for guests it feels more like a private beach but this was in September and not sure if this would be the case in August.
Kalyves is a small town with a great choice of tavernas (about a 15 min walk from GK Beach) and an ideal location for visiting other places in Western Crete.
