A small family, friendly hotel within toddler toddling distance of the beach can be hard to find, that's why BFB are so excited to introduce the GK Beach Hotel in Crete. This 23 room, white washed hotel is nestled in beautiful, tropical gardens with palm trees and lush green lawns on the edge of wide, sandy beach which stretches almost as far as the eye can see. Add to this an inviting swimming pool, separate children's pool and the hotels own restaurant/bar and it completes one of the finest beachside locations on the BFB books.
Although the sea views may draw the eye initially, the hotels backdrop is just as impressive. Fringed by the magnificent White Mountains of Western Crete the location is perfect for walkers who, come spring or Autumn can head inland and explore the charming hillside villages which have hardly changed for generations. As for those looking for a little more hustle and bustle the Venetian harbour town of Chania is just 25 minutes drive away while closer to home the local shops and restaurants in Kalyves are just ten minute walk away.
The friendly owners Yiannis and Katerina truly set this hotel apart as they take great pleasure in ensuring guests young and old, experience the very best of Cretan hospitality. Mini guests will have a holiday to remember with morning strolls on the beach, paddling in the sea and splashing about in the pool while adults appreciate the hotel's stunning location, on request massage treatments and fresh, local food served up daily in the hotels restaurant.
The hotels ground floor suites are perfect for families with one or two children. The suites have one double bedroom (air conditioned) and an open plan living area with handy fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. Cots and folding beds can be provided for children. There is one family shower room in each suite. Each suite also has an iron, ironing board, iPod docking station, safe and hairdryer. The ground floor suites have a sea facing balcony area.
