The hotel is in an amazing place - in the middle of the rocks and there is no other hotels nearby, which means you will have a relaxing stay. Each room is in a little house with a separate entrance, it feels like a little village. Lots of sunbeds and space for sunbathing. Pool bar is great and the views...

We are four days into a seven day trip half board. Lovely room (108) with sea view and amazing value for money. Of the three pools, the two prettiest are mostly private at the moment (early May). You do need a car though to make the most of the beautiful surrounding area. We hired ours in Hania and drove from...

How more disappointed can you be ?? The view is amazing, it is beautiful. But the installations...they are soo old, not optimised and all the furniture are low quality. Beds were not good. It is sooo disappointing. No wifi in the rooms so you have to go to the common places, not very useful. In the end my bathroom didnt...

The staff were lovely and accommodating. I had read reviews saying they were rude but I felt the opposite. It was my sisters birthday and the receptionist noticed the date on our check in form and came to say happy birthday the next day, very sweet. The place was clean and In a beautiful setting. Maybe slightly sleepy and dated...

The Kalypso Cretan Village is in a great location off the beaten track but the whole complex is very tired and needs a complete revamp. The pools and swimming lagoon called Pirates Cove are lovely and is what makes this Village along with the beautiful views. The staff are not very friendly and need to brush up on their customer...

This is a very interesting resort hidden away from other places. We really enjoed the "village", hidden bay, some swiming pools and nice views from our really huge terrace. Place is a bit outdated and some renovation would be nice, but we did not mind it. Food was decend and a lot of choice. Staff was a bit confused and...

Ahhh the sea, the fresh air, the remoteness, the dramatic cliffs, the glorious sunshine. Did I mention the sea? This Cretan idyll is a wonderful place to stay if you want to get away from it all and wallow in a shore cove paradise. Admittedly there's no beach, but beaches are to be found nearby. In any case you can...

This hotel is well worth a visit for a short amount of time. Before you set of I would advise researching the journey. The roads aren't the best and sometimes get extremely narrow. However, on arrival you will be impressed with your surroundings. There is plenty of room for parking cars and you are greeted with some fabulous views. When...

Really cool location for diving, snorkelling or just jumping off the cliffs into the pristine clear blue water. The facilities seems to be great some time ago, but definitely need more maintenance. Food was good, but go for all inclusive option, otherwise the only drink you will get at dinner is water. Not even kids soft drinks can be obtained...
