First holiday in Greece for our family of 3. The hotel was basic but very clean and good value for money. It was well placed for access to the beach and the local shops and restaurants, which were only a 5 minute walk away. One thing to watch is that the marble stairs can be a hazard when it's raining as they get very slippy. We ate breakfast most mornings at Sofia's Bar - which had a very friendly bulldog called Lola - as we tried the breakfast at the hotel and we were a bit disappointed as the scrambled eggs looked like they had been lying out for a week and the sausages were tinned mini hot dog sausages. We ate dinner at the Olive Tree restaurant most evenings and this was a great place to go. We didn't like the way some restaurants were quite forceful in trying to get you to eat there (especially the Italian restaurant on the strip where the guy didn't know how to take no for an answer - the Olive Tree did not have anyone doing that and this encouraged us to go in, along with several positive reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and reasonably priced and we would recommend it to anyone. On the whole, the holiday was great and we recommend the Marelen Hotel when staying in Kalimaki.
