"I go away every year, and this hotel is one of the best ive ever been to. Everything was..."

I go away every year, and this hotel is one of the best ive ever been to. Everything was perfect. Rooms were cleaned everyday. Air con was a treat. Didnt need to get up at silly times for a sun bed. Weather spot on sooo hot. Beach was lovely but would be perfect if it was all sand. If u had kids there were always somat for them to do in the kiddys club or a safe kiddys pool for them to play in. Adults pool was a big size so cold but wicked for coolin off in. Snacks in the pool bar were only toasties and cakes, but if u eat at breaky and lunch then shouldnt bother u. I fought the food was nice always salads different meats and pastas even chips for the picky moany people that u always get.
Really enjoyed night time always somthing on kiddys mini disco on everynight at the start, bingo to win extra pennies shows where guests can join in/Karaoke. Finished about 11:30 to early for me but great for familys. Bar in hotel was open till 2 if u didnt feel like going to bed or clubs in town were only a 7 50 euro taxi away. all the staff were lovely. Mitsi at the pool bar in the day works really hard i noticed people moaning about her cause she was 'rude' erm thats a lie she had the time for us maybe because we treated her with respect some guests never had that. But they did have a qualifaction in 'moaning' i go on holiday to get way from that. There are quads/bikes and buggys to hire on site good price and wicked to get around on. I didnt go on any hotel trips but i heard that if u do its cheaper if u book them in the own. Its only a bus ride away 1 euro 40 chip as chips!! I would say this hotel is suitible for everyone. Peacful in the day and lively if ur willing 2 travel 5 mins on bus or taxi.
I loved this place so much im tryin to book again for next year
overal a 100% worth holiday the only problem was having to come home 2 weeks fly by when u ENJOY yourself im so sad to be back
If u are one of these moody people who moans about little things then go to blackpool and leave places like this for me !!

"Went of kalimera Mare this July flight from Glasgow arrived at 12.40am, wished we jumped..."

Went of kalimera Mare this July flight from Glasgow arrived at 12.40am, wished we jumped into a taxi for the 15 minute transfer, however we had paid for the bus transfer unaware that we had to sit on the bus for 1 hour waiting for a Midlands flight to arrive, did not get to resort until 2.45am same with return transfer had to wait for the Midlands transfer bus to collect us, they were ok for their check in, however we were last in queue for Glasgow flight which was cutting it a bit fine for boarding. Anyway after checking in Hotel and staight to bed we got up and explored the resort. Breakfast was breakfast, cereal, toast, eggs. bacon etc. everything you would expect. Went for a walk about and checked out the other two sister hotels namely the Atki Club and Kalimera Kos, they were packed round the poolside, very busy and found out later that it was impossible to find a sunbed. Our poolside did not get busy until about 11.30am, you don't have to book sunbeds. Food was of a high standard, but if staying for 2 weeks could get a bit boring. Rooms were a typical hotel room style with a double bed and single for us with a bathroom with shower above, although there seems to be very different types of rooms at the Kalimera and not given out very fairly as some are two roomed suites and given to couples and some rooms do not have baths, just showers. Now for the down side of the Kalimera Mare, this hotel is taken over by a company called Mastersun.co.uk it is a company that specialises in 'Christian' holidays. There are about 10 reps that stay in the hotel along with about 50 'Christains' most of which are aged about 16 - 20, this you might think is a good thing until you go for your meal in the restaurant and find that they go about in packs of about 10 and jump in and basically take the place over, same goes with the pool and the bar at night. (yes christians do get drunk and roudy too) There is not an al la carte restaurant on the site, but a tavern called the Pargola which you eat in every second night which is the same food buffet style that is offered in the main restaurant, which on these nights is being used by Mastersun for prayer meetings. I do think that sometimes we came second when it came to the Mastersun customers, one incident in particular was on our last night before flying home we asked the barman if we could use the huge widescreen TV in the bar to put on a DVD for the kids to entertain them while waiting for the bus, he was really grumpy about it and would not turn down the backgroung music in the bar which was the loudest we ever heard it in a week. However the night before Mastersun was showing a video that they had made during their stay and completely took over the bar area including all the chairs. This said, if you can ignore this you will have a great time, if you want a lively night out jump on a service bus outside the gate and go to Kardamena and drink the cocktails and shots offered for free!

The accomodation was first class. Food very good plenty to choose from.
All staff were helpfull and friendly. At the price I paid you could not fault this holiday.
One word of caution if you go in the high season the price of drink in the resort doubles. (Dumfries)

Location was about 4Km from town and bus service unpredictable (even the hotel bus). Food was excellent and a good variety, even a microwave was provided for those who wanted piping hot food. The inside bar was nice and the bar staff faultless. Now the pool bar. What a difference there, the woman serving had a real bad attitude, if she didn't like you for any reason she would ignore you completely or serve all comers before you. (you can guess she didn't like me). for what reason I can't imagine. After about four days i got the cold shoulder and spent the next ten days walking to one of the sister hotels for daytime drinks (half mile away). For this reason I would not consider going back and would recommend you try other hotels in the area. (BASINGSTOKE)
