“A fantastic hotel with marvellous view – ideal for a relaxing vacation”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

My wife and my daughters stayed to weeks (and I one week due to work) at Hotel Porto Potha. I will strongly recommend the hotel if you are looking for a quiet relaxing vacation with the kids. The hotel is nicely situated with a fantastic view over Kalymnos. We stayed in the studios (all facing Kalymnos) which were clan, sort of spacious (compared to other studios in Greece) with two beds with a nice veranda/balcony. You can by breakfast at the hotel if you want at the pool is of natural sea-water. The owners of the hotel are very friendly and helpful.
And Telendos itself is fantastic, no cars, nice beaches and restaurants with good food!

We stayed at Porto Potha hotel on Telendos for 6 nights in July 2013.
We booked via email (we were island hopping) and the hotel confirmed our reservation without requiring anything further.
We had a "moutain view" room (all that was available and the cheapest). The hotel is sort of cut into the rock so these rooms at the rear do not have an open aspect, don't get much breeze and the room got very hot (air-con is fine). The studios have an excellent position and the sea-view rooms have lovely balconies.

Be aware that the hotel does not accept credit card as payment, they did not advise of this in their email and had we not asked in time to travel back to Kalymnos and access an ATM we would have been in a right mess when we came to leave. If you cross back to Kalymnos and turn left on the main road from the ferry you will come to an ATM and shops after 10-15 minutes walking.
When we did leave the hotel transported our bags back to the ferry for us and would have picked them up when we arrived, if we had known what time we were crossing to Telendos. The walk isn’t far, but it is up to the hotel at the end so not good in the heat with full luggage.

The hotel is looking a little tired, the bathrooms aren’t great (even for Greece) and we voted it worst shower of our 3 month / 10 island tour. No curtain left a soaking bathroom however careful we were, the hot water frequently ran out at evening shower time and when it was hot the water temperature varied frequently and almost dangerously. Some of the electrics did not fill us with confidence; our bed side light was wired with single insulation (bell wire?) and we received a slight shock from this light.

On the plus side the people who run it are great, really friendly and helpful. The rooms have a “mini-bar” (fridge) and drinks are served on the terrace all at very reasonable prices. What makes it all worthwhile is the seawater pool. Raised above sea-level it comes with terrific views, sun beds and umbrellas and is a really decent pool to swim in. If you want the sea it takes two minutes to walk down to the beach below.

If you fancy Telendos this place is worth considering because of the pool, but don’t expect five star.

Room Tip: Go with sea view or studio.

A small family hotel at Telendos, a small island next to Kalymnos. No cars or mopeds on the island. A very quiet and relaxing place, a very good treatment for my hypertension. The hotel have a few rooms and some appartments. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We could choose between 4 different breakfasts. The rooms were a little spartan, but had a minibar and air conditioning. The beds could have had softer mattresses. We were disappointed that the pool was without water for 5 of the 7 days we stayed there.
But allover, we can recommend the place and will return next year.

Room Tip: You can choose rooms with sea view or towards the mountains

...is what you will find at Porto Potha and Telendos. The rooms are basic, but clean, but the friendly staff and the lovely settings make up for that. Nice to just sit at the pool area and watch the sea, all the boats and Kalymnos. If you want peace and quiet and love good food, and meeting lovely people then Telendos is for you!

If you are looking for laid back holiday, nothing to do but enjoy the weather, beach and wonderful fresh food, this place is ideal! If you want shopping, clubs, watersports etc. - go somewhere else! We had a wonderful time and can only recommend it :)

Room Tip: The rooms are all simple and clean, choose between water or mountain view; both stunning!

Porto Potha has a great location if you wish to have a quiet vacation. You can enjoy perfect evenings close by the sea enjoying the moon and the stars and the sound of the waves. The view towards Kalymnos is spectacular, and you can view the sunset by taking a short walk to Hoklaka Beach south on the island. Only a few shortcomings (pool bar not open, noisy airconditioning, plumbing not totally up to date) but this is equalized by the kind and professional staff. Taxi boats are available every half hour to get to Kalymnos from 8 to 24.

Room Tip: Consider if you want seaview (facing east, so sunny in the morning - my favourite) or mountain view...
