Kantouni Beach Hotel
Friendly, professional staff make for memorable stay at Kantouni Beach, in Kalymos, which is on an unspoilt sandy beach and nestles below the spectacular mountain scenery of Panormos.
The modernisation of the studios at the Kantouni Beach Hotel, Kalymnos, has made it an even more delightful base for a relaxing holiday.
For self-catering supplies there is a supermarket nearby, with a delivery service, but the resort also has a selection of traditional tavernas and cafes within walking distance.
The friendly and knowledgeable staff also host theme events, including Greek, barbecue and even rock nights in high season, which have become so popular that they attract the local population as well as entertaining the guests.
The hotel has a swimming pool with sunbeds, parasols and bar serving drinks, fresh snacks and meals, as well as a garden and a sun terrace, and the 24-hour reception service can advise on car and bike rentals, local attractions and cruises, and arrange a laundry service. Clean, spacious, well-equipped rooms have a kitchenette, furnished balcony or terrace with a lovely sea and sunset view, air conditioning, TV, free wifi, fridge and a bathroom with shower.
Nestling below the spectacular mountain scenery of Panormos, its architecture reflecting the bright, blue-and-white buildings of the surrounding village, the hotel is on an unspoilt sandy beach, with the gently-shelving shoreline ideal for children to splash about safely in the sea and the Meltemi breezes encouraging the waves.
The area is popular for mountain walks and rock climbing through the stunning landscape, while the sea attracts scuba divers as well as swimmers.
Not far away is the beautiful beach of Platis Yialos, which has fine black sand and crystal-clear waters, as well as a popular taverna and another angle on the breathtaking sunsets
