Just arrived back from a week long visit. Booked last minute and at a good price, we were a little unsure what to expect. The weather was nice and warm, although a little windy at times. We walked down the beach towards the little marina where there seemed to be less wind. This made relaxing on the beach more enjoyable....

Usually I never leave any comments, but in this case, I'd like to do it, so everyone will know where to stay. It is small, but clean rooms in this hotel. The bathrooms has no shower cabins, only the curtain, so the water just flows down on the floor. It was such a bad smell in the toilet room, so...

We arrived very late to the Hotel, and were welcomed by a light meal which was appreciated The bedroom was spacious, but the bathroom was ludicrously small, no room to manoeuvre at all I have no idea how the designers of the Hotel thought the en-suites could every work...very odd! Seems tehy do have some larger ones… ask when booking!...

Have just arrived back from a short family break at the Kalyves Beach - we had a really good stay. The hotel is in a great location in the heart of Kalyves and set on the beach.

I write reviews regularly and always do my best to be balanced and highlight the best of any stay and go lightly on negatives or things that could have been a little better, but Kalyves Beach will test the most accommodating and accepting guest, the attitude and ineptitude of the staff and management has astonished me. We have just returned...

We arrived on Saturday for a much needed week of relaxation. Positives are the cleanliness of the hotel and the location; which is quaint and typically Greek, which I hoped for.
