Spendid View, Overpriced Island
Reviewed 22 november, 2021
I booked a Deluxe Double room for me and my young child. The Hotel room was sufficient and clean. I selected the Mountain View but I had a wall view! I could get an upgrade to the Sea View room with Euro 15/night however I declined it. The sea View rooms were too tight. Besides the bathroom door while it opens it blocked the access directly to the shower. So once you have first to step in into the bathroom, then close the door to enter the shower area, which was not safe being alone with a young child. However the bed was comfortable and I was really pleased with the rock decoration in my room. But having Ikea sticker on a wood soap rack, a basic bin and not fix curtains was not acceptable for a 4 star hotel. Meanwhile the hotel is well situated with a splendid view in front of Telendos island. The breakfast area had an acceptable choice of food but if you want to have fresh mixed juice you have to wake up early till 8am as the climber guests will take it all and they wont refill it. As a world traveller, I am always very enthusiastic discovering new place, I was very sad about this place despite having a beautiful nature. Let me write my discountent: 1. The breakfast was partially on an open space in front of the terrace. I have been asked to wear my mask while being completely alone while other guests were not wearing them. Even the last day, an Austrian lady was not wearing her mask while picking her breakfast food but the young staff did not said anything to her! 2. Accidentally my young child spilled water over the bed late at night, I contacted the receptionist for new bed sheets. while the mattress was wet I returned it on the other side where I found it full of blood stains. The member of staff had no idea where the replacement mattresses were kept in the hotel. On top of that, I had the cleaners wherever they saw me trying to explain it was not their fault. I did not make a big issue to save my holiday but they were chasing me all day long which was really tiring. 3. The chef left the hotel when we arrived so there was no food to order at the pool area. I had to go and collect some food from the main street which was again tiring! I learnt later that I could order some ham and cheese toast but is that enough nutritious sufficient for a young child which made me irritated. However, I have to be grateful to the young lady at the pool bar for having an eye to my child so I could go and collect some food. I truly appreciate her kindness. But still cant understand why they could not make a salad at least. 4. While the owner of the hotel was very nice and helpful man, he recommended me some restaurants. His son and wife where all time watching the guests, in the terrace or the pool area I felt constantly observed which honestly nerved me and wanted to leave that place beautiful place. 5. I kindly asked the morning receptionist about the local bus schedule and she told me to go out and walk to the bus station where I will found the daily timetable. I believe that should be provided by the hotel otherwise please let me know how this hotel is referred as a 4 Star hotel, cause it has a pool, a view and a comfortable bed? And how about its services! Further to this I asked about the taxi rate from the hotel till the port ' village, they told me Euro 18 one way which is the rate given to the tourists. When I contacted myself the taxi operator they told me in Greek between Euro 12 to 14 and when I asked a local he told me they charged me Euro 10! This island has basically 3 rates, one for the locals, one for the Greeks, and one for the foreigners! I encountered that at the restaurants too! I was really upset and found that disgraceful. In addition to this, the restaurants in Masouri like the Thrimpi, the Aegean Tavern, Prego , they all have high rate price for Greek standards, At the Aegean Tavern they were charging E 10 for a Greek salad, and between 12 to 14 for other salads, E16 for a small Octapus, those are Vouliagmeni or Kolonaki prices, the upper Greek area with the highest tax on real estate, so no their service or either their location could justify those prices. Now I understand why the tourists were complaining too. This not the Greek hospitality that I was expecting !

The Carian is a modern hotel in a great location, with wonderful views from the balcony of most rooms, large comfortable beds and good aircon. We found the WiFi good in most areas, including our room, by the pool and at breakfast (which was a good buffet selection, taken on a terrace with the same great views). Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel pool and pool bar are lovely with plenty good quality sunbeds and chairs. There is a virtually private small shingle beach below the pool at the bottom of the steps, if you prefer to dip in the Aegean. Kalymnos is a scenic island, very popular with international rock climbers. We hired a scooter for 12 euros a day and did a complete circuit of the island on one day, which was fun. There are lots of scooter rental places in Massouri, as well as loads of restaurants, including quite a few that were very good and exceeded expectations. The Carian is a couple of minutes walk from the central part of Massouri, which has a slightly hippy vibe. Recommended.

Location is very good, shops, bars & beaches are a short stroll away. The rooms are clean and bright and those facing Telendos have stunning views, you could spend your whole time sitting just there. The best thing about this hotel is the great staff. We left an iPhone behind and the lovely Yiota in reservations simply arranged to post it back to us, free of charge. That says it all really. An English friend was charged £40 to have his phone returned from a hotel in England! Highly recommend.

Fabulous hotel . Staff are so friendly and helpful . Slight hiccup on arrival (at midnight) but resolved straight away . All the facilities are great . Breakfast wanted for nothing . Absolutely stunning views from wherever you stood . Rooms are superb with great walk in showers. Pool bar serves great snacks and the young lad who runs it is a credit to the hotel . Will def return
