“Beautiful location and amazing view”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I stayed at this hotel at the end of May and had a lovely room with a balcony and a sea view. The rooms are kept spotless by the hard working and friendly cleaners, and the quality of bedlinen and towels is better than I have ever known for a Greek holiday.
There is a fantastic beach bar with good food and draft Mythos - a lot cheaper than you would expect for the location. All the staff were friendly and the whole atmostphere was very relaxing.
I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: I stayed in Room 232 which was on a corner with a balcony and full sea view.

Best hotel in which I was! I stayed last summer in Cristal Beach Hotel, and I will go again in September. Hotel and rooms are very clean and tidy. Stuff is friendly and discreet.It is also great that the beach is in front of hotel. I liked pool which is big and clean, bar with refreshing cocktails, perfect. Food is a delicious,everything I tried had excellent taste.
All in all Im thrilled whit this hotel and place, I recommend everyone to visit this hotel, and im sure that they will bring back, like me, can not wait for September!

I stayed in Crystal Beach Hotel in September 2012 for the first time, and came back last year, July 2013. Location of the hotel is amazing, it's the only hotel right on the beach. Staff is very polite, and a blonde women on the reception was very kind and helpful. Hotel is owned by such a nice family!
The thing i like the most was that we tried some really good specialties in the hotel's restaurant.Everything there is nice, clean and peaceful.
Also, we had a chance to see the famous turtles, careta careta, from the hotel's pool bar, cause the beach in front of the hotel is where they leave their eggs.
Hoping to enjoy this hotel soon again!

Room Tip: If you want a room with a sea view, i think it's the best to contact the hotel directly. I did t...

We've chosen Crystal Beach hotel out of a travel agency from FInland and the cost was quite good.

In general the Hotel is good and I recommend if you want a simple hotel with good prices.

All the facilities and structures (outdoors, bar, restaurant, pool) are very nice. The have done some renovations and you can see it. But the room is not that good.

The room was renovated, but it's not that clean. The bed is not comfortable. The shower and the bathroom wasn't so clean and it was a bit disgusting. They gave us a baby bed, so this was very helpful, but the bed old and not 100% clean.

The staff is very friendly and you can see there is a family behind. The restaurants and the bar have great food and great prices.

We had a sea view room and worth it. They charge the air conditioner (10€ a day) and it's impossible to handle without. I think they could have included this on the price. It's unfair to pay after a week 70€ (the cost of one day at the Hotel). The internet (just in the lobby, is expensive 5€ / 3 hours).

The beach and the location is great. I also recommend to rent a car to go around the island (it is Huge!).

I don't know if we would come back to Crystal Beach Hotel. Maybe some other one closer to Alykes (one beach that we really like it!).

Thank you for your kind words! Yes, a family operates the hotel and constantly listening to our guest's to upgrade our hotel and facilities. I deeply apologize if you were not satisfied about some aspects of the hotel, but we were/are currently going under renovation taking the hotel from 2,5 stars (at the time of your visit) to 3+ stars!

Kind regards,

If you don't have high expectations this hotel is just fine. Most of the staff are friendly, but don't look very happy. Breakfast is basic but ok, never had lunch or diner at the hotel. At the poolbar some of the staff really didn't have a clue, I ordered a cocktail (which I had seen on the menu the day before) and the girl firmly told me to order something from the menu, when I showed it to her she quikly got her colleague to make it.... But ok, no big deal. As we've all seen very often, also here a lot of guests claim the sunbeds early in the morning and than dissapear for most of the day. Room was ok, nothing fancy and pretty clean. The only thing that really needed some improvement was the bathroom, shower was broken, so the water went everywhere but down to the person standing there... The location is perfect, no other buildings on either side and a nice view if you have a room with seaview. Just around the corner there are supermarkets, bars and restaurants but it's not the really busy part of Kalamaki. If you like the more crowded places, you only have to walk a little further. Don't forget to bring some protection against mosquitos, there's a lot of them.

Dear sir or madam,
We appreciate your input and constantly trying to improve all aspects of the hotel based on guest feedback. The hotel is undergoing a renovation to get from 2.5 starts (which was at the time of your visit) to 3+. We apologize for the misfortune with the shower.

The location of this hotel is exceptional, literally steps away from the beach. The hotel staff are very friendly and always happy to help.

The hotel is a small walk away from the main strip.

Make sure you ask for a room with a sea view!
