Like many other people said: probably the best hotel we ever went to. We had an exclusive suite with sea view. My son (18 years) was with us and we had a separate room in our suite. The food was excellent and we could 2 times during our holiday eat 'à la carte' one time in the greek restaurant (splendi see view) and one time in the Italian one. It's also a real 'ALL IN'. The most of the cocktails were free and very good prepared. The day when we checked out, it was all inclusieve until we went to the airport in the afternoon. The local wine and drink was more than good enough so we didn't had to spent a lot of money for special wine. There was never a shortage of sunbeds around the 3 swiming pools and on the beach. The private beach is great and the sea warm and clear! Don't foget a mask you can see a lot of fishes not so far from the beach. Every day beach volley. The most of the people is coming from the Nordic countries, Russia, and England. We surely come back to stay more than 1 week to visit the country. the whole staff is very helpfull and always smiling, doing all the best to make from our vacations a complete unforgettable trip. We went to the Kalliston between 31/08 and 08/09.More

One of our best vacations ever !!!

Hi, Having read all this great reviews before we travelled certainly raised our expactations. One reviewer claimed it was "the best hotel in Europe". I don't know if it is but it is for sure one of the best hotels we ever have stayed in. That includes our trips to Thailand and USA. At arrival we experienced one of best organised check-in ever. We were upgraded from a Junior Suite to a Swim-up room which was lovely. We couldn't ask for a better start of our vacation !!! There are 3 pool areas in the hotel and there were never a shortage of sunbeds. Both my wifeand me are breakfast lovers and we were not disappointed. First-class breakfast with everything you could ask for. The lunch at the Greek Tavern (beachfront with a great view) and the dinner in the main restaurant (buffe style) was very good. The beach in front of the hotel is great and the sea is very clear. The guest is from a number of countries, mostly from the Nordic countries, UK, Switzerland. I could go on and on with all postive things. Was there really not a negative thing ??? We stayed at Atlantica Kalliston at 24-31 August and I am writing this review at 18 September. So I have had time to think and the answer is: There are no negative things. Will we return ??? Not next year (we never travel to the same place 2 years in a row) but in the future (100 %). One of our best vacations ever !!!!More

Exceeded our high expectations!

Having read the reviews before our holiday we were already expecting a great holiday, but it really did exceed them :) I won't go into all the details as they are already in other guest's reviews. We stayed 26th August - 2nd September and didn't want to go home :) The rooms were spacious, clean and modern. The bed is huge and had the best night's sleep, they say you miss your own bed on holiday but on this occasion we wanted to take the bed home with us! The only aspect of the room that could be improved is the decor in the bathroom. The walls are concrete and painted grey which made it look dirty/damaged. The sunbeds were always available and we didn't go down to the pool or beach until at least 10/11am :) We stayed half board but would highly recommend the drinks package which allows you to have any soft drink, beer, wine, cocktails and milkshakes - great value for money €72 for 3 days! We also exchanged our evening meal for the lunch buffet on two occasions as we wanted to try out local restaurants in the evening a few times. This was no problem for the staff and great that the hotel were so flexible! The food was fantastic - breakfast was my favourite and couldn't wait to get down to the restaurant each day. Evening meals were superb and had plenty of choice. The beach was beautiful although we had a couple of yellow and red flag days which meant it was a strong tide and very wavy. During our stay we had a 5.8M earthquake (I didn't realise we were so close to a fault line) - having had a good shaking we can confirm that the hotel is built to with stand them and no damage was caused (to our huge relief) ;) The hotel attracted mostly 50+ couples and a few honeymoon guests - it was lovely and quiet and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening entertainment. One evening we went to Chania via the #21 bus - it's a lovely town and about 15mins away. It was just like any Greek/Turkish tourist town where each restaurant owner tried to get us to eat at their restaurant and there were plenty of gift shops. We were relieved to get back to our luxurious town after this excursion ;) Overall we would highly recommend this hotel to any couple looking for a luxurious getaway! Thank you to all the wonderful staff that made our stay so memorable!More


Just book it !!

Like many other reviewers have said this is possibly the best hotel I've stayed in and I've been around! We got a free upgrade to a junior suite and my parents who came with us were upgraded to an executive suite - both were excellent with great beds and glorious views. The food was of an extremely high standard and as people have said the hotel management are extremely visible and chat to everyone - no one is forgotten. Age wise there were all age groups - from young couples to elderly guests which was ideal. The hotel caters for all ages and has a variety of activities from aqua gym to Greek lessons. The location is great and we walked every day to small villages and back before breakfast. The 3 pools were never crowded and sun beds were plentiful - no early morning towel hoggers here! A really nice touch was on our departure we were given bottled water and small kit kat type wafers for our journey to the airport when normally once you've checked out you're forgotten about. Another plus is Pimms is served for free on the all inclusive package so happy days were had by all! More

Fabulous Hotel

We have just returned from a week in this wonderful hotel. It is simply put "Fabulous". We had a swim up room which was so lovely, but to be fair all the rooms looked pretty nice. The cleaning staff were super, the rooms spotless. The food was excellent, we were on Half Board and we did not feel that we needed to pay extra to use the other restaurants as the there was plenty of choice every night and not at all repetitive. The lady Maria on the grill was so lovely and always had a lovely smile for everybody. The staff were all very good, always looked happy in their work. Tonia in the restaurant was a gem, she is a credit to the hotel, along with other restaurant staff, they were a great team. Management were always around which I think is the sign of a good hotel, as was the friendly chef. Do not be put off by the review which says its for the Saga group. We are just 50 years old and by no means old and past it. We loved the modern ambiance in the hotel, as there was a varied age group from young honeymooners to a lovely elderly couple next to us who were in their 80's and very young at heart. A do agree that maybe one night a more Up to Date dance night would be good as we love all the current music and a good bop !! maybe next year ! as we will defiantly be back to this wonderful hotel. Saying that this hotel does not advertise being a full on entertainment bonanza that is we choose it, but we did join in when we wanted to, but its not "in your face" entertainment. To us it was a good happy medium. Thanks again Kalliston for a great holiday, already back in work mode and wishing we were back. Thanks also to Thompson Holidays as everything was very well organised and the rep Jo was also excellent, and always on hand.More
