The hotel is in a great part of the beach which has more privacy / less busy. Free parking. There are two sections of sunbeds and parasols; one for hotel guests and one for day visitors. The manager was very welcoming and friendly and the guys behind the bar were also. Drinks and food very fair priced - enjoyed the...

I was fortunate enough to have travelled with a good friend to this area recently who has her own villa in the local area. She suggested that we have lunch here and after use the sun beds on the beach. I am so glad she did. We happened to have arrived on the first day of the summer season and...

I went to GK Beach Hotel with my family for two weeks at the end of August 2016. I am not exaggerating when I say that it was the best holiday I could have hoped for. The place is geared up for family with children of all ages and small enough for people to come together and bond around the...

This was the perfect holiday location. We wanted a high quality 'boutique' hotel with good facilities near the beach. GK Hotel was perfect; the beachside location was a lovely backdrop to breakfast and dining as well as relaxing on the balcony. The family owners, Katrina and Yannis, who dined in the restaurant most evenings, were friendly, helpful in recommending local...

I was staying a 5 minute walk away but used the sunbeds and had lunch at GK most days during my week long stay in Kalyves in mid September. In a lovely location on an unspoilt beach with views across the bay and back towards the mountains. GK has two separate banks of sunbeds, one for use of hotel guests...

If this hotel is anything to go by the Greek people are lovely. From the moment we arrived they were warm, considerate, attentive and genuine. That cannot be said about so many places these days. We travelled with Simpson holidays, and I have to say they are probably the best travel company I have ever encountered; thoroughly professional from start...

Very relaxed environment helped by a combination of the professional services of Simpson Travel and the founders / owners who were resident in-site. Impeccable service and cleanliness in a delightful, garden setting next to the beach.

A really well run and comfortable small hotel (20 rooms) in a great location. The building was built as apartments but now runs as a B & B hotel with restaurant attached. Our room on the first floor of the original building was two rooms the bedroom at the back approached through the front door, then a well appointed bathroom...

My husband and I have just spent a week here. We were impressed by the location of the hotel and as the weather was good, were able to enjoy a sunbed on the beach and some local walks. The reps were very helpful and lent us some excellent guide books. The bus service is also good and you can catch...

“Block A (on the right) is very quiet. The "lower" floor is actually raised so the balconies are private with a sea view.”
Cheshiretravel, 8 Jul 2016 | Read review
