In early july 2016 I stayed here three nights with my husband, my seven year old and 9-month old sons and my mother. We stayed in a two bedroom suite. Another hotel would possibly call it an apartment. The rooms are quite basic - nothing fancy but the furniture looked whole - matching and proper. The bedrooms are spacious, and...

Wonderful hotel with great views and service! We stayed at Balos Beach for 7 days, and I can definitely say we received far more than a 3-star hotel treatment. We booked a Superior sea view studio, which was very spacious and comfortable for 2 persons. We had an enormous balcony with perfect view to the sea, we were able to...

We spent 3 nights at Hotel Balos Beach, we had a room near reception with view to the sea at 1 floor. Room was nice and comfortable, cleaned every day. Reception always very helpful and restaurant just ok, i mean prices are quite expensive (for example 14euro - late diner buffet style). Rest of the Hotel is great, for the...

I loved this hotel but I felt rather sad that it lacked care and attention , the pool area is lovely overlooking the sea . The umbrellas were not...

We choose this hotel first because it's the best location to arrive the earliest possible in Balos beach but we eventually realised that this was not the only advantage of this hotel. All rooms have a very nice view on the sea. Rooms have a good quality bed and are quiet. The breakfast is also very good and there is...

We booked this hotel after a long hard day at Balos beach(long walk with lots of stairs in the scorching sun). It cost €57 and the accommodation were above average but not amazing. It was worth the money spent. The bed was firm but not as uncomfortable as some we've slept in our 1 week in Crete. The pool was...

Tip: hire a decent car or book a group trip! But to get the best view of Balos, you need to come in on foot, not boat! The drive is hard, 8km off road on dust and rubble mountain tracks with some very steep gradients, as you'd expect driving up a mountain. Once parked, you then have a 2km walk...

We have just returned from a week long stay at this hotel. It is situated in a stunning location with wonderful sea views across the bay. It was lovely to be able to sit on the spacious balcony and watch the sun rising and setting. The hotel is quite remote and it is not served by public transport. Consequently a...

I feel very lucky and grateful 'cause I think I visited and 'lived' one of the most beautiful places on earth :)))))))) BALOS is simply a Paradise!! But I really loved Gramvousa Island as well, and I think I'll never forget the brief chat I had with the magic 'guardian' of the island, who also gave me a small but...
