When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Scrivo questa recensione in doppia lingua perché voglio condividere con italiani e cittadini di altre nazioni 9 corrispondono a realtà. Il gestore Babis è una persona veramente eccezionale, gentile e sempre disponibile a dare qualsiasi indicazione o consiglio utile affinché la vacanza sia perfetta. La pulizia quotidiana dell'alloggio è impeccabile. Consiglio a chiunque voglia trascorrere del tempo a kissamos (posizione strategica per raggiungere le più belle spiagge di Creta) di pernottare in questa struttura e assicuro che dopo la partenza se ne sentirà la nostalgia.
Ciao Babis !!!!!
Vittorio

I write this review in two languages ​​because I want to share my experience at this facility with Italians and citizens of other countries. We have been staying in Callista for 3 years now and we are sure that there is no structure in kissamos with a better quality-price ratio. I didn't take pictures but I confirm that the ones that can be found on the internet correspond to reality. The manager Babis is a truly exceptional person, kind and always available to give any useful information or advice so that the holiday is perfect. The daily cleaning of the accommodation is impeccable. I recommend to anyone who wants to spend time in kissamos (strategic position to reach the most beautiful beaches of Crete) to stay overnight in this structure and I assure you that after your departure you will feel nostalgia.
Ciao Babis !!!!!!

We stayed in Callista apartments in September, for almost 2 weeks. Owner (Babis) was the kindest, he gave us all info we asked for, he recommended things, borrow us sun umbrella, gave us local goodies. He was very responsive (whatsapp/viber).
The apartment was very beautiful, tidy and clean. They cleaned it (change sheets/towels and vacuum) every two days.
We had a nice view to a sea and around the apartment is a big beautiful bushy garden.
The kitchen is pretty small, good enough for easy meals (breakfast, pasta...).

We stayed 3 nights in a studio on the top floor, with terrace facing the sea. The studio was comfortable and spacious, with equipped kitchen (even if coffee and sugar would have been appreciated). Thumbs up also for the bathroom. Only note: since the building is new, I was expecting to find an elevator.
Babis is super welcoming, kind and energetic host who gave use different advices on the area.
The location is good: 5 minutes walking from the beach and all services (e.g. supermarket, cafes), 10 minutes from the city centre. Free parking is available on the street. The neighborhood is quiet and immerse in the nature.

The staff is very friendly. The price is good, it is on a very good location to explore the western part of Crete. The room was extremely clean and they changed the linen and towels every third day. The whole property is very quiet. It was really a good experience and I definitely recommend Callista.

Had a wonderful stay! The owner Babis is an excellent host. The hotel is located in a peaceful area. The room was bright, beautifully decorated with all necessary amenities!! With a car you can be in the famous Falasarna beach in 15 m. and the town of Chania in 30 m.

My boyfriend and I stayed there from the 3rd to the 10th of July, we are about to leave to another side of the island but we already are sad to leave the place. Babis and his family are very nice people ! We arrived and received a bottle of wine and a bottle of water was already in the fridge (for free)...which is good after a long trip in a car. Babis is also good at telling you which places to go to and visit. He even gives you free umbrellas to go to the beach if you want. His wife takes good care of their garden, which is beautiful. And their children are very nice and polite. I have read some negative comments (not many though!) And I really don't understand why. If you want a flat on the top, you should probably ask Babis because the photos show both the ones on the top and the one next to the garden. We had one next to the garden and really liked it because it's peaceful and calm. If I really had to find one "negative" aspect, I would say that if your neighbours are noisy people, you can hear them...but isn't it the same in every hotel anyway ? ;)
In conclusion, we really LOVED staying at Callista Apartments because of the family's kindness and the apartment in itself (cleanness, modern, equipments, garden,...).
Great price-quality ratio.
If we come back to Crete, we already know where to stay :).

We stayed for 3 weeks. The apartments are conveniently situated a few minutes walk from the town centre and the beaches. Very clean and nicely designed. Would definitely recommend and will go back. Babis was very friendly and generous with olive oil, wine and honey.
