Different from the landscapes of northern Crete, the south is rugged and rocky - very unique. This hotel is sitting at the end of a road in the middle of nowhere, which we found very charming. Nice lagoon with clear water. Little noisy around the pools with the animators blasting same tracks day after day. Cozy buffet restaurant offering sufficient...

As many people on here mentioned, Kalypso Cretan Village hotel is a nest for the hawks. Its position in the rocks, overlooking the Libyan sea gives you the feeling that you don't want to leave ever. When we were driving to the hotel my partner enjoyed the cliff road and I appreciated the view. You have to drive carefully though,...

Are you looking for a location that is away from the noise of typical tourist areas? Do you enjoy swimming? Can you walk up hills? We had a room overlooking the resort, with 70 irregular stairs to climb from the pool level to our room. The balcony is tiny but if you climb over the table, two can sit outside...

The experience we had with the location was amazing, so bad that the hotel does not live up to the place! We booked one night, but the rooms are very old and not well maintained. It is a must place to visit in Crete, but you need to find another place to sleep.

Even though the hotel isnt new...it is built in one of the most beautiful seaside locations in Crete.Its a ten minute drive from the fishing village of Plakias. It is secluded with its own beach and many swimming pools. The buffet breakfast was rich with many local products. Really value for money...and definitely we will revisit it!!!

This was our 2nd visit to Kalypso. First visit was couple of years ago, just my wife and I, and we loved it. This summer, we spent 4 nights with our 2 kids. We booked a family room, and as soon as we got to the room, the smell was terrible, with mold in the bath and no ventilation. We...

Most amazingly beautiful location, with lots of activities. 2 star accommodation. But I wasnt happy with the staff. When we arrived there was no food for us and they refused to help us out, we were starving and hadnt eaten in almost 24hours. They were adequately helpful in general. Our tub leaked, which i could get over but the whole...

First things first - would we go back - absolutely and we plan to do so next year. This place is an acquired taste: there is much that would normally irritate us (tired bathroom - charging for minibus to town - renting beach towels - awful tea and juices) but the location and staff worked their magic and this was...
