We had a great time at Kernos Beach. Very kind people, nice rooms and a very clean place to stay! All though we had to leave early due to some problems back home, the people of Kernos Beach supported us which felt great! I would recommend it for sure!

This Hotel provides access to a very cute nice spa with very kind staff. We particularly appreciate the service from Despina, Maria and Irini. We got wonderful massages. Unfortunately they push a bit too much to buy products but massages were great

So here’s the story. I live abroad. My original flight to Portugal - my home country - got cancelled because of rising corona cases and I chose to go to Greece instead. I wasn’t sure how I’d feel at the Kernos Beach Resort but people here made me feel at home. These are people who understand the importance of olive oil, the poetry of the breeze coming from the sea and hospitality. I missed that. It’s crazy how alike we are despite the language differences. At the spa meet the highly professional and charming Despina and Irini. I can’t stop recommending them. I feel renewed with the face treatment and massage there. The hotel room was clean, the balcony pleasant. I slept the sleep of kings for all the restless nights of 2021. I hope to come back next year!

Me and my friend have spent 8 days on Crete, in Kernos hotel during our vacation in September, 2020. The hotel territory is massive and very beautiful, the food was very delicious and the beach very clean. I have greatly appreciated the measures of precaution for Covid-19 taken by the staff and hotel owners. Hand sanitizing stations placed everywhere, staff was wearing masks on all occasions and everyone was respecting the social distance. The room was clean and very spacious. The owner and staff very receptive to all requests. Thank you Kernos team for a great experience and relaxing vacation! Nadia

Excellent place for family vacation, fantastc staff, delicious meals, everything was perfect. Me and my wife and our two kids arrived at the Kernos beach hotel during the peak of the high-season. The reservation staff provided us a fantastic doubled - room, sea view bungalow which was very comfort, clean and quiet. The dinner was included in the price and was suberb. The staff was very polite, friendly and the hotel's beach was always clean. We are looking forward to come back, soon. Efstathios
