This hotel is in a great location, right on the sea front with a beautiful beach. The hotel is very clean and rooms are well decorated, all with sea views. We had one of the suites which was very spacious. The staff are very helpful and friendly, will do anything for you and the food is excellent with different dishes...

We have just returned from our second visit to GK Beach this year and yet again our holiday delivered everything we expected. We just love the location, right on the peaceful beach near Kalyves, a short stroll from the hotel to the sea. The rooms are comfortable and stylish and the beds ensure a good nights sleep. Katerina, Yannis and...

Rather than repeat other's reviews - I would thoroughly endorse "NorthYorkshireAnnie's" review below as it is very comprehensive and, in my opinion, totally accurate. We had a great time in this beautiful, peaceful hotel. The gardens are nicely laid out and very well kept (the gardner is also cheerful and friendly). We enjoyed every aspect of the hotel, bar and...

Food was simple but delicious with plenty of variety. Staff were attentive and friendly. Lovely beach just a step away. As the hotel is small we became acquainted with a number of other guests and there was an intimate atmostphere. Totally relaxed and chilled the whole week. With all the fresh air and a few walks, good food and company,...

On our return visit we thoroughly enjoyed our fortnight at this attractive hotel. The welcome is warm, the service is spot on, and the location is brilliant. The garden setting is lovely and the beach is sandy and attractive, with tamarisks and beach daffodils. The food in the restaurant is varied and appetising. Don't be put off by the naf...

This was our second visit to the GK Beach; having spent a great week there last year we decided to stay for two weeks this time. This is a small, family-owned hotel which is more or less exclusive to Simpson Travel, who maintain an English staff there. All the rooms have sea views and as the hotel is set well...

Very clean hotel with comfortable bed. Good breakfast and very friendly staff but sadly room 5m is 15ft from the rear of the kitchen so from 5 o'clock in the morning when the staff start work the noise begins! Not very good for a relaxing holiday especially when the extractor fan starts up. Shower also not great. Trying to be...

I'm inspired to write a review of the GK Beach Hotel, having returned from holiday 3 weeks ago. This was out 6th visit here, following previous fantastic holidays. Previous visits have been in June, outside of peak period. This visit was well and truly worthwhile, albeit during the much busier August school holiday period. We were greeted by Katerina, her...
