    Poor Internet - everything else met our expectations.

    • Standard Double Room
    • Stayed 2 nights

    The internet speed suffers tremendously. It varies from excellent to absolutely terrible - worse than dial-up 20 years ago - depending on the traffic loading. The internet at this hotel cannot cope when the hotel has many guests booked in - as in our case. We had to hotspot our mobile phones on all occasions except a few times when the internet worked well when everyone was having breakfast and obviously not on the net. I would not return back to this hotel unless the internet speed was fixed and proven reliable with full guest loading at the hotel.

    The level of service to perform repairs to room amenities such as balcony lock and safe was excellent.

    Excellent hotel but value for money not excellent.

    • Stayed 6 nights

    WiFi was really poor - it didn't work throughout our whole stay (7 days/6 nights). TV-channels were switching while we were watching TV several times during our stay. The room wasn't soundproof enough as the door was letting too much noise entering the room - people walking on the floor from early in the morning, children playing, etc. For 200 EUR/night in a simple double room I expect everything to be perfect.

    Bed, bathroom & room were perfect - except for the noise entering the room. Breakfast was rich and really tasty. The beach in front of the hotel is majestic as the view on mountain Taigetos from the restaurant. The staff is very professional, experienced, friendly and polite.

    A promising hotel that turns disappointing. We slept in a room with a broken lock in the balcony window for 3 days so we didn't feel safe at all! We saw cockroach running in front of the lobby and spider in our room. Damaged curtains. Very expensive food in the restaurant and not so good. All that in a very expensive hotel that makes you expect more

    Uncomfortable matress and pillows, and the duvet had hair on it. The food served on the pool was below medium and high priced (plus there was only one person serving both customers on beach and pool) . Overall while the building was what you expect from a 4 star hotel, it needs improvement on serving customers that are not ''all inclusive''.

    Great building and location. Definite plus the service on the breakfast.

    A very nice hotel worth its money.
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Standard Twin Room
    • Stayed 1 night

    For guests staying longer than 1 night it is perhaps advisable to slightly change the breakfast each day. More paprika, onions, cucumber so green and healthy food and far less cookies and cakes. At the pool a menu must feature on each table. This will help sales of drinks and snacks. The persons at the reception must learn to speak English better. Water was served the whole day through and better for the sales surely would have been the menu offering all kind of drinks. Pool staff must learn to make cocktails.

    Staff was very polite and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The views on the mountains and the sea were just perfect.

    The stones on the beach - but it is mentioned in the hotel's website, & is no-ones fault. People smoking nearby at breakfast, had to move twice one morning....not something I am used to but the norm in Greece.

    The staff went the extra mile - couldn't fault them. Quiet location, no problem getting a sun lounger as it was end of the season. Only a handful of children so it was very peaceful, mainly retirees. The bus service right outside the hotel was great, then an easy walk home after dinner, about 30 minutes. A complimentary bottle of wine for our anniversary - much appreciated.

    Excellent hotel, with good service nice breakfast and a beautiful beach with mountain view. Very close to the city center of Kalamata. The area has beautiful beaches in 20-30 mile range that are secluded. The landscape of olive trees, turquoise crystal clear water and traditional stone built houses of Mani make the visit unique. It is also very easy to visit. 2.30 hour drive from Athens.

    It wasn't great value, I believe the rooms (while nice are small) and the drinks were quite over priced. Having said that I'm booking up for a return visit!

    The staff are amazing and really helpful. Loved the poolside activities and beach bar. The location is great and the bus stops right outside the hotel to take you into town. We really enjoyed the fun family atmosphere at this hotel.

    The place never felt clean. The walls were dirty & needed a good paint job. The lifts were filthy inside and out. Waiting for the lifts you had to face the filthy doors that looked like they had never been cleaned. The pool water was not clean, definitely needed more chlorine &chemicals. Sun beds were always taken over by 'blue towels' of people who would return hours later to use them, so sun beds were never free. The beach below was quite pebbly and very painful to enter and come out of. Wifi - virtually non existent it was so weak.

    The beach is open to the public and is not for hotel guests only. This is standard practice for many hotels in Greece but one should keep this in mind as the hotel does not reserve sun beds / umbrellas for their guests.
