Very nice hotel with very warm and friendly service. We arrived at 3 am and owner was there for us and took care of that we could go to sleep asap. Room was clean and view to the sea was awesome start for the day. Service was excellent and visit was perfect. Beach was very near, so although there wasn't pool, it wasn't problem. Kalyves is very beautiful, peaceful town.

We stayed in a standard apartment at Porto Kalyves for a week and had a lovely and relaxed holiday. The apartment had more than enough space for the two of us and was well equipped. Two good size balconies, a spacious bedroom with enough cabinets and storage and a good a/c. Small livingroom with a sofabed and a well equipped kitchenette, and a tiny bathroom with a small shower stall. The cleaning was excellent throughout the week, but change of towels and linen only once during our stay. The beds were a bit hard so it was a little hard to sleep, but the linen was really comfortable. Due to the soundproof balcony door, we heard no noise from the road. However, it was not soundproof inside the apartment because the walls between the rooms did not go up to the ceiling, could be a problem for people with different sleep patterns. We loved sitting on the balcony facing the sea, unfortunately there was no awning or other kind of sun shield, so it was impossible to enjoy the seaview during the morning and day. The nearest beach were just across the road and great for taking a swim first thing in the morning. Kalyves is a peaceful village with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The village centre was a 5-10 min walk from the apartment, and a good supermarket was right up the road.
We would not hesitate to return to Porto Kalyves, but hope that they will equip the balconies with awnings and maybe get some comfortable top mattresses for the beds.

From the moment we arrived at the Porto Kalyves Apartments we were extremely well looked after. We were greeted by Panos and Ioanna and shown around our beautiful, well furnished apartment. The bedroom had two single beds, made up as a large double.The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable and the linen changed regularly. The rest of the furniture was of a very good quality, with more than enough storage. The bathroom was very clean and it was lovely to have a well lit bathroom cabinet to store all our toiletries, a welcome change compared to other apts we have stayed in. The shower was of ample size. The kitchen diner was very well equipped with kettle, toaster, two ring hob and full size, under counter fridge with a small freezer box. We had a large sea facing balcony, plus a smaller one off of the bedroom, with a washing line (pegs provided). One of the best features of these apartments were the outside roll down shutters, which acted as black out blinds, ensuring a good nights sleep. We didn't wake up until 10am most mornings! The fantastic sea view, together with the wonderful hosts make the Porto Kalyves the perfect choice to explore Kalyves and the surrounding area. We will definitely be returning in the near future.

An Idyllic Retreat.
I have been travelling to Crete at the end of May for more years than I can remember, but this was my first time in Kalyves. What a result! The apartment was immaculate - light and airy, with the kitchen diner opening onto a balcony with an uninterrupted sea view over the bay. From my extremely comfortable bedroom, with crisp linen and plump pillows and mattress, I could open the french doors onto the balcony overlooking the hillside; I wish I could have bottled the aromatic smell of oregano, cypress and rosemary. This place is a glorious, peaceful retreat from the bustle of life; it is a sensory experience in every way. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and obliging, and I was given a useful welcome pack, containing tea, coffee, butter, marmalade and french toast . It was a 5 minute walk along the road to the nearest taverna, although I favoured the Pipperia which was about an 8 minute walk, virtually across the road from the supermarket which stocked everything you could possibly need. The Pipperia is a quirky painted farmhouse, owned by a family of organic farmers. I used to do a 'Shirley Valentine', sitting by the water's edge, eating the delicious food and drinking their home produced wine. Can't wait to return.

Room Tip: The apartments have a better view than the studios.
