We have recently returned from the Kalyves Beach Hotel, we had a very relaxing holiday we stayed in a New Blue room with a sea view, the room was quite spacious and had recently been modernised with a very nice bathroom, good shower and storage. For us the hotel lacked atmosphere but really enjoyed the beach.

Good points: Good room and seaview
Great breakfasts
Hotel Spotless
Fantastic beach with free sunbeds
Despina the manager very helpful
Bar staff at the pool bar great
Food around the pool very good
Free Wifi

Bad Points: Safety Deposit Box 20euros a week ( never paid that before
even in 5* hotels)
Beach towels 1.50 euros a day.
Reception Staff not very friendly (maybe end of season blues)
Tea & Coffee facilities in the Room
In the Guest Directory stated
free replacements obtained from reception
Well it was like trying to get blood out of stone
In the end went out and bought replacements.

But overall we enjoyed our holiday we love Kalives and have been many times, but if we return we will again stay in apartments. The majority of guests are now on all inclusive which is such a shame as the local tavernas are very good.

If you do stay at this hotel do take lots of books they have a library but most of the guests are not British so neither are any of the books.

Room Tip: The Sea view rooms in Kalives 1 are very good.

Our room was excellent, nicely decorated and spacious. The sea near the hotel was very nice and awarded with a blue flag, and the ducks were fun to watch.
I really liked the hotel, everything was fine, but the WiFi connection really got into my nerves. The hotel had free WiFi all over, but that meant that for every 2 minutes connected, there was half an hour disconnected, and my antivirus also gave me a warning about the safety of the network.

I have been to Crete many times, but I didn't know there was such a lovely place near Chania. Kalyves is a small village with a few shops and tavernas. Anywhere you go the food is excellent and quite cheap. Try Mitsios grill. The hotel's location is perfect for families or for people they want peace and quiet.It is right on the beach!! You can even order your drinks from the hotel's bar on the beach. The beach is beautiful with lovely clean waters. I was amazed by the fact that the river flows into the sea.They gave us a renovated room on the side sea view which it was nice and spacious. There was a kettle and tea in the room which is very convenient if you have small kids or a baby to make their milk. The staff was really friendly. Hello Anna!! Anything you asked, you had it. The bus to Chania passes just outside the hotel. The best thing was the scenery..the mountains around, the trees on the beach...the nature. These five days with my family couldn't be better! Thank you all there! I will be back soon!!

The location of this hotel is spot-on, the breakfast is really great, but that's about it. You are in the center of the village, right on the beach, and a stone's throw from numerous tavernas and restaurants, shops and galleries.

The rooms are pretty small for what you pay. We didn't manage to figure out how to control the air-conditioning. We had a room in the wing across the road from the main building where reception is located. The decor was a bit tired (and I hate plastic flowers), but everything was clean. There were problems with the WI-FI internet in our rooms, and we mostly had to go to the public areas of the hotel to get good reception.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the sea or the river.

We have stayed in this hotel several times, always friendly, kind and welcoming to the family. We got a great updated room with a lovely view. The staff here are really exceptionally helpful, and try their very best to ensure a great stay. Hopefully they will upgrade the whole hotel over time so the standard of rooms is fabulous everywhere .
The pools are great and the facilities good, beachfront location is wonderful.
The food is simple but there is usually something Greek and this is always the best choice!
We would come every year if we could get the right sort of flights!

Room Tip: Front or side sea view are the nicest , on the river side have a tendency to be mosquito ish!
