    Location 3.0 /10

    Located in Plakias, the Kalypso dominates the sea of Libya. It is located 75 miles from Heraklion airport. Count about 1 hour and 45 minutes by car.

    Accommodation 6.45 /10

    Most of the 125 rooms have a seaview from the spacious balconies or terraces. Every accommodation has a bathroom with tub and toilets, direct telephone with international access, television, refrigerator, and individual air conditioning. The rooms on the garden level have one additional characteristic: the floor is stone instead of tile, and there are painted walls instead of whitewashed partitions.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    Built on the hillside, the Kalypso evokes a perched village. The complex includes two-storey bungalows in Cretan-inspired architecture. Sports amenities and playground are located by the hotel entrance (the only leveled area!). A special note for the beautiful solarium terrace, entirely in stone, circled by the mountain and bordered, on the sea side, with a small guardrail, as a large balcony overlooking the sea.

    Food and drink 5.95 /10

    The dining room is not one of the Kalypso's main assets. Large but dark, it unfortunately does not render the beauty of the site. The only - limited - view of the sea is from the adjoining terrace. All meals are served buffet style. On the menu: local and international cuisine, with numerous theme evenings. The snack bar, by the pool, offers quick lunch dishes (Greek salad, pizza, moussaka).

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The Kalypso is about 2 miles from the Plakias and Damnoni sandy beaches. Shuttles (subject to sufficient number of participants) will take you there. Be aware of the fact that the small cove fitted below the hotel has a scuba-diving school and centre and a small solarium with deckchairs.

    To know

    Open from April to October, the Kalypso will particularly suit sport and nature lovers. It is located on one of the prettiest coasts of Crete, but also one of the less spoiled areas, where sea and mountain mingle in a totally picturesque setting. With lightweight entertainment, this hotel offers a relaxing and active vacation.
