The food at the hotel was amazing g with lots of variety. The only thing that stopped me from giving this a 5* was the bathroom....

My daughter and I spent a nice week in June here. Lovely small hotel, rooms clean and fresh, although the bathroom or should I say shower room is very tiny. (Even for my daughter who is a uk size 8!) Meals were good for all inclusive, generally something nice cooked on the BBQ every evening. The staff were very friendly...

We were originally booked to stay at the Kiania Beach hotel which is the sister hotel to Kalyves Beach.
