This lovely hotel is the kind you are selfishly tempted to keep secret - you realise that half the clientele has come back time and again and so will you. The GK stands for galazio kima - literally 'azure wave' - and blue is the unifying tone of the decor throughout the resort. It's set on a mile of golden... More

Staying on another part of the island but used the beach facilities at the hotel that are available to non-residents (assume your supposed to have a drink or lunch) - we did both and had a very relaxing day and a great swim. Service was excellent and very friendly. Facilities of the hotel look very good.

Delightful small hotel with the personal touch. It's very clean and the rooms are well equipped, even having a sink, electric hotplate, kettle, crockery, pans and cutlery etc, which meant we could do some simple self catering for lunch. We had all our evening meals in the hotel as the food was excellent, reasonably priced, and the waiting staff were... More

...just like the beer! A great small hotel in a smashing location - on a nice beach, mountains in the background, pleasant village in walking distance.
