★ ★ ★ ★
No weather data found for [, ”Crete”, ”Kolymbari”, horizontal]
A small, modern 4-star hotel in a good location which lacks character and atmosphere. Pools are more like waterways, being long and narrow, but overlook the sea.
Suitable for couples and families looking for a fairly new hotel on the beach and close to the resort centre.
Three long, narrow modern buildings, constructed from smooth beige stone with pale green door surrounds. Apartments overlook the road and internal courtyard and have reasonably sized wooden fronted balconies. Hotel rooms and suites overlook the sea or pool and have green metal fronted balconies.
Property type: Aparthotel
Balcony/Terrace: All rooms
Built Year: 2003
Interior areas are modern, fairly minimalistic and lacking in character. The reception and lobby are bright and airy with floor to ceiling windows, plasma TVs, internet terminals and pale wicker furnishings.
Main bar is extremely compact with brown leather seating. Restaurant furnishings are dated, in an older wicker style with pale green tablecloths. There is a small children’s playroom and gym.
Grounds are compact and greenery is limited to a lawned courtyard with some small palms and narrow lawns around the pool. Flowering urns are dotted around. The longest pool is like a river running through blocks and is for suite guests only.
Main pool at the front overlooks the beach, is long and narrow, with metal steps and a swim-up bar. Sunbathing space is limited but continues onto the beach.
Area Type: Grand Bay Beach Resort is located directly on the shingle beach, the main centre of Kolymbari is a 5 minute walk away with a choice of tavernas, bars and tourist shops. Surrounded by other small scale accommodation, with scruffy looking buildings next door, and new apartments which are being built opposite.
