GK Beach Hotel, CreteThis prize draw is now closed.

This month our lucky prize winner and their partner will win a 7 night stay (flights and car hire included) at the beachside GK Beach hotel in Kalives, Crete, courtesy of our partners at Simpson Travel.

Few hotels match the glorious location of GK Beach, where every suite has a sea view and all that stands between you and the soft white sand is a beautiful tropical garden. It’s a destination made for gently unwinding, helped along by massage treatments, drinks by the pool and delicious organic meals in the restaurant, served with the best in Cretan hospitality. The helpful Simpson Travel staff are on hand to offer advice and information about getting the best from your holiday, whether you want to jump in the car and visit the sights, or stroll into the village and enjoy a coffee or meal.

GK Beach Hotel, CreteThe beaches of West Crete never disappoint, from wild and rugged to pretty and peaceful – and the magnificent scenery continues further inland too, from the stately White Mountains to some of the Mediterranean’s most impressive gorges. Historic Chania, one of the most beautiful towns on the island, is also less than half an hour’s drive away.

Our winner and their plus one will visit in October 2017, when the weather is still sunny, the sea warm and the island less crowded. Flights and car hire are included in this fabulous prize.

Read about Jennie Carr’s visit to the GK Beach Hotel. She thought it was absolutely ideal for a late summer break.

    Having looked at the video and read Jenny's article I can see the appeal of a peaceful week at this hotel. One to add to our wishlist now we are retired. We have visited Crete but never stayed in this area. Looks beautiful.

    My husband and I fell in love with Greece when we travelled to Corfu some years ago. Since then we've visited Kefalonia, Kos and next month will travel to Zante. But Crete is next on our list, we hope to visit as many Greek islands as possible before we get too old!

    This sounds like a fantastic holiday in Crete in a lovely hotel. We have never been to Crete so would love the opportunity to experience a holiday in this venue.

    Crete is a beautiful island, although I have never been to this particular area and would like to see it. Whoever wins will enjoy, not only the hotel and beautiful beaches but also the warm, welcoming Greeks.

    Would be a lovely break for us as OH is recovering from major surgery and just feels guilty sitting at home doing nothing.

    Years ago I visited several Greek Islands such as Paros, Ios, and Kos but have never made it to Crete (yet!)

    I've been enjoying the lovely sunny weather - usually Greek to me - so my heart yearns for Crete's shores and historic sites.

    Crete is a lovely island we were there in my youth when there was a bank strike. As we were camping the owner kindly let us stay until we could obtain our money and pay him for the fees and food. The Greeks are such lovely hospitable people. It would be great to visit again.

    Have been to c20 Greek islands. Did a lads holiday to Malia in the 80s but also traveled around a fair bit and enjoyed. Would love to go back in October with my partner who has said she would like to see the Chania area.
