We stayed at the Kernos beach hotel, half board between June 1st and June 8th we had a garden view bungalow with its own patio which was lovely. The staff were great particularly the reception manager Pepi and the restaurant manager. Great holiday, only minor gripes would be,1) no kettle in the room, 2) lack of evening entertainment, that said...

We spent a week at Kernos Beach at the end of September. We were very meticulous when choosing the room and we definitely made the better choice possible - it was a Sea Front Bungalow with direct view to the sea and a green lane separating you from the beach. It was far enough from public places and it was...

Kernos Beach Hotel is a beautiful beach hotel with acres of lush gardens, restaurants and an enormous pool. The bungalows, seaview or seaside are beautifully appointed with lovely patios. The only negative thing I can say is that it doesn't have WiFi, which in 2009 is a disadvantage, but there is an internet cafe nearby.

I must start by saying that the minute we arrived we wanted for nothing and everyone and everything was excellent....

We arrived in our rented car to a friendly reception desk after a long flight. When we were given our room assignment we realized that it was not a "sea view" as we had paid for. We were shown on the hotel map a room overlooking a noisy, ugly road. We were polite and explained it would be unsatisfactory. When...

Just got back from a week B&B at the Kernos Beach Hotel which lies right on a nice beach, & is situated on the main Beach Road between Malia & Stalis, being about a 10-15 min walk from both. These resorts would not appeal to those looking for a piece of traditional Cretan life, but would be suited to those...
