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
Fantastic beach with free sunbeds
Despina the manager very helpful
Bar staff at the pool bar great
Food around the pool very good
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.
