Hotel Crystal Beach
in the quiet resort of Kalamki is ideally situated for spotters. The brochure describes the resort as one that can suffer from aircraft noise up to 10pm. Aircraft normally call the tower frequency approximately 15 minutes before arrival and then route to overhead the airfield before routing over the bay for landing on runway 34. This gives ample opportunity to get off your sunbed and get into a position to read the registration. The hotel is only 15m to the beach and just 200m to the nearest restaurants and nightlife.  
Location: ** The resort is in a great location.
Spotting: ** Some investigation may need to be done to establish the best views from this hotel.
Photos: ***
There is a good point for photos at the holding point for runway 34 just 10-15 minutes walk from the resort, where the sun is behind you until mid afternoon. Remember you are in Greece so exercise caution.
Value: ** A weeks bed and breakfast starts at £289 in May rising to £509 in late July and early August. This price includes return flights.
Book:   This hotel can be booked through the THOMAS COOK website.
