Kalypso is an overpriced expensive 2 star! Unfortunately we stayed two nights... No service to speak of, if you can even find a staff member. Restaurant is very expensive and only open certain times of day with a set menu. Take our advice and drive into Plakias for your meals. We saved heaps by doing this and ate a beautiful...

I have to say I was a bit worried after reading reviews that rooms would be horrible but we wanted to stay a couple of nights because of the location. I was pleasantly surprised that the room was nicer insider than I had expected. The furniture was in great condition and there was plenty of room. The bathroom was old...

The location of this hotel is exotic. Finding the place may be difficult but once you reach, very relaxing atmosphere awaits you. Don't expect five star luxury but overall the hotel is good. Food is great. Evening entrainment is also lively but mostly for kids.

The surroundings of the hotel are perfect and the rocky swimming area is nice. Otherwise the hotel is pretty much stuck in the 90's. There are a few smaller infinity pools which would be nice if they weren't situated in the middle of the parking lot. There is also a bigger pool but the area around it isn't very comfortable....

After 10 nights in Chania we (2 adults and 2 kids) went to Plakias in our rental car to stay at the Kalypso hotel. The hotel is located on a mountain side at the end of a mountain road. By car it take 5-10 minutes to travel to the popular Damnoni beach, Plakias town or some of the other small...

I'll start by saying that we got a screamin deal on the price for a 3 night stay here so we were ok with the fact that the resort was very outdated and a bit run down. (We did not have all inclusive). I can imagine that it was in it's hay day back in the 90's. It is a...

Just back from Kalypso Cretan Village Resort. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience from the moment of arrival to the sad moment it was time to leave. Room and resort very clean; staff friendly and helpful. The geography of the island makes this resort well off the beaten track and you feel completely isolated from the rest of the world. The views...
