It’s the first time I don’t recommend a hotel.. for the price is terrible. The only good thing was the beach but you can go without needing to waste your money in this hotel. Breakfast is ok, for dinner we paid more than restaurants in plakias and we didn’t eat anything Many times nobody came cleaning our room and we stayed without towels In our room there was a shower but you couldn’t use it. The bath tub lose a lot of water The windows were hard to open You couldn’t use the drawers since they smell of mold When they changed our bed sheets casually we found out that they had blood spots and were dirty Every furniture is old and smells bad. The swimming pools were beautiful but with salt water The receptionist with red and curly hair was rude many times and didn’t help us By the way for the price you can have better and visit the kalypso beach without needing to ruin your vacations 2 stars only for the beach and the breakfast that wasn’t bad

Resort-not

Reviewed 19 september, 2021

!!!! DONT GO !!!! The most misleading hotel site you can find! It is extremely! ridiculously!! overpriced for the quality of accommodation provided. The place is nothing like the photos, which must have been taken 15 years ago. Everything seems to be falling apart! The room was dirty, the furniture were old and worn, in the bathroom the tab had leakages the tub was broken and the double bed was in fact two one beds!!! How romantic! The whole place is so poorly maintained to a point that it has a high safety risk. Sun beds and shades are broken the metal handrail from the sea stair was chopped off !!! OMG !!! On top of these there’s neither phone reception nor WiFi connection to the rooms, which is unacceptable in 2021!! They only accept cash which means if you are at the pool bar you have to go all wet to the reception in order to purchase your order. The staff is not willing to help you specially at the front desk where the lady was super snobby and ironic. Such a waste of money and of a such prominent location for a great holiday resort.

Beautifull place & that’s it!

The best thing about this hotel is beautiful place away from crowded big resorts and thats’s it. Room was terrible, very old- needed a renowation. Worst thing about the room was bathroom - it looked like an old bathroom in some prison. Food - everyday the same,- nothing special for a hotel with this class (4 stars). Staff very friendly but seriously do something with rooms beacause they can ruin your vacation. Also the beach they are so proud of costs €10 for 1 umbrella with 2 old beds per day. WiFi doesn’t work in rooms, hairdryer and shower don’t work. You don’t have even 1 glass in your room - you get only ashtray. The views are amazing though and place itself. You can walk to 2 beaches where you have a market and great tavernas with very good food... but as listed above - it’s not worth the money, especially when you cool down after couple days and see this mess.

Nice but needs some uplift

Reviewed 6 september, 2021

We have visited this hotel a few weeks ago. Nice location, brilliant blue sea but windy in August. (about 100 minutes transfer from the Airport by bus). Reception OK but the hotel was very short of staff so you had to be patient to be served (same true to restaurant and bar as well). The staff is very friendly and the food is very very good! Cleaners are overworked and some rooms were bit oldish (needs refurbishment). The beach is rocky and it is very good for scuba diving and snorkeling. If you prefer sandy beach there is a coastal path leading to the next village where you can find nice sandy beach and tavernas with authentic food and happy/nice local people. It takes only 15 - 20 minutes on foot to get there but may be difficult with small kids!! Still you can order taxi at the reception and it is cheap and they operate on fixed price base. The Hotel has 3 pools and they are more than OK (saltwater though). No daytime animation due to staff shortage. There were nightime activities (disco) but with the same tired staff so they did not last long... At the reception you can arrange programmes and excursions and they are cheaper than preordered programmes by the travel agencies. A drafr beer is around 3 euros (0.4 L) in bars, a can is around 2 euros, in shops, a coctail is around 5-7 euros. Main course is around 12 - 14 euros and it is delicious. Alltogether quite good quality for money but in near future this resort needs some serious uplift.

Diving Kalypso Bay

Reviewed 2 september, 2021

We didn't stay at the resort but visited their dive site for the day. We had a great experience from booking with Lesley to the two dives we did. Steven (dive 1) was really friendly and knowledgeable and took really good care of us while we were diving, checking in on us and pointing out interesting sea life. Jerome (Dive 2) was also great! He was more relaxed and kept an eye on us while we explored the areas around us, making sure we dived in a different location to the first dive. He took some great underwater photos too and emailed them over to us that evening. We went through their bus Wreck and through one of the small caves which was great fun. Thanks all for making our experience so much fun. I would definitely recommend diving here.
