Kalypso, Plakias
Our stay at Kalypso in October 2018, was very good. We really used the hotel as a base for the local area, you need to be aware that it is not in walking distance from Plakias and about 40 minutes walk from the nearest beaches, so a hire car is essential. Plakias is 8 Euro each way in a taxi. We had an initial problem in that due to a recent storm, the hotel was overbooked. This resulted in us being allocated a poor standard room for a night. This was rectified the next day. The initial receptionist was helpful, but just showed us the room without telling us why it was so bed, resulting in our request to be upgraded to what we had booked. All other staff in the hotel were very good and friendly. Our new room was great, cleaned daily, with a sea view and a balcony. The bed was comfortable. We did not use the pools, but swam a few mornings in the lagoon area, which again was good. I cannot comment on the hotel entertainment. I would not use the hotel again, due to the need for taxis if you are to have a drink in one of the local village restaurants as 16 Euro is a big increase on a 30 to 50 Euro meal.
