Hotel Pegasus
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Kala Nera
Reviewed 10 November 2013

We stayed at the Pegasus Hotel on 21st June 2013. After a delay through flying out, (we booked through Monarch but flew with Small Planet, after a 8 hour delay, that was known with the airline weeks in advance), we ended up not getting to the hotel until 10.30 at night.
The owner of the hotel greeted us outside took our bags and showed us to our room, which was not too big but spacious, a balcony facing the mountains, the bathroom was small but not cramped. Very clean and cool when we arrived. The hotel itself doesn't have much in the way of facilities but there is enough to keep you entertained, we brought 2 snorkels for less than 10 euros and swam around looking at the fish. If you took appropriate footwear there are walks up into the mountains which i will definatley consider when we go again.
As we hadn't eaten since midday at Gatwick airport we were starving, we went down to the bar/restaurant to see if they were still serving food. I had a salad and my partner had a carbonara, both of which i can honestly say were probably the tastiest food i have eaten.
Breakfast consisted of: boiled eggs, fresh bread, meats, cheese, fresh fruit, juice, tea/coffee, cake, jam/honey/marmalade served on the patio with a view of the sea and the fishermen coming in with their catch. The staff were accommodating and offered yogurts and fruit if you didn't fancy the whole lot. It was my partners birthday on our 2nd day there and they gave us a bottle of sparkling wine to celebrate with which was incredibly generous of them.
The beach is less than a minute walk accross the road, not sandy but once you lay a towel down or use the loungers you wouldn't know. Beautiful doesn't even come close to the views and scenery. This was our first holiday abroad together and we would come back in an instant if we could.
The staff were incredibly helpful and their hospitality was incredible nothing was too much, we even had a drink with the bar manager on our last night.
Kala Nera itself has bars and tavernas' along the sea front also shops that sell almost anything you could need. The staff everywhere we went were so generous and friendly. They were patient with our attempts at speaking Greek. .
The buses run in an interesting way, the bus stop in Kala Nera town only runs to 2 other towns, but there is a bus stop on the main road. Once we worked out the bus timetable we spent half a day in Affissos and a day in Milena, incredibly beautiful places and very traditionally Greek, (which made menu reading a bit tricky)
Our holiday rep was not much of a jump from useless and didn't really seem to know a lot or have the answer to many questions we had. Unfortunately we arrived on a bank holiday weekend and a few weeks before the change to high season so booking day trips were quite tricky as a few things were not running yet. There was a bus trip that went around the Penisula but that got cancelled the day before which was disappointing but by this time we had worked out the bus times so we took ourselves off.
If there is the chance to go on the boat trip, i highly recommend it, you see so much of the Pelion area there is a chance of seeing dolphins but we didn't see any sadly. The boat stopped twice for us to go swimming and we stopped for lunch on Trikeri Island, with amazing views all around.
If you want a peaceful and relaxing break away I would highly recommend Kala Nera, and the Pegasus hotel. If i could go back tomorrow i wouldn't even hesitate. One week was not long enough to really take in the surroundings.

Booked through Monarch(Cosmos) Good flight times there and back, holiday rep not very good The Hotel Pegasus in Kala Nera is on the front overlooking the Pagasitic Gulf. The Hotel is very clean the service is excellent and very friendly. the breakfast was a very good continental one on the front watching the fishermen bring in and sell their catch. There are plenty of Taverna's that serve traditional greek food also, Italian style at the Ibiskas for a change, we never had a bad meal out and all very reasonably priced.
Overall a very restful holiday with lots of sun, sand and atmosphere, the home made Typnaboy is excellent it is like ouzo but smoother.

Have just returned from a week in Kala Nera staying at the Hotel Pegasus.
Could not fault either hotel or resort.
Beds of course hard and bathroom small (typical Greece). The hotel was very clean, lovely breakfasts outside bought to you on a tray. Attentive and friendly staff.
Resort is small but lots of bars and restaurants, perfect!

We found this place as a walk-in and were delighted. The town, Kala Nera ("Good Waters") about 10 miles from Volos, is on Pilion, an incredibly scenic peninsula, popular with Greeks and Europeans. Hasn't been discovered by Americans yet. The photos from the other two reviews are accurate. Basic room, but w/ a view of the sea from the balcony and for 60 euros you can't beat it! The location is right on the beach surrounded by outdoor tavernas specializing in fresh fish (a fishing boat pulls up in front of the hotel each morning - I saw the manager help it dock) so you know the fish is fresh! The manager was wonderfully helpful, though with not a lot of English. It has a cafe so you can get drinks, coffee and great ice cream until late. From driving through other towns on Pilion I can't imagine a better place. We stayed for two nights and I wish we could have stayed langer. Great value. Highly recommended.

Good basic accomodation here albeit lacking a bit in utensils. Also small bath with shower mixer taps - no shower as such. Self catering not really an option on a 2 ring stove with one ring the size of a very small saucer! Could just about have a coffee in the morning.
Booked this with XL holidays as a last minute and it was good value.
Very good choice of restaurants on the sea front - less than 3 minutes away.
The resort is unspoilt, uncommercialised and very Greek. Hardly any Brits, a few Germans and Dutch but that's about it.
Look for the restaurants that have a lot of Greeks in them and you wont be disappointed.
Cafe Paris on the seafront very good.
We hired scooters for 5 days and must've covered about 450km.
Altogether would go back to this area

We just returned from an overnight stay at the Hotel Pegasus outside of Volos in Greece. The hotel is clean and comfortable which was a nice surprise considering the somewhat up/down experiences we have had in finding last-minute rooms.

The room itself was of reasonable size and included a full size bed with soft pillows, a small refridgerator, a small television, and an air conditioner (all of which worked). The bathroom was small and only included a shower.

The view from the balcony included the nearby sea and beach.

Overall, the Pegasus is a good place to stay and explore the surrounding areas.
