Stayed in June 2013 on a half-board basis. It couldn't have been any better.
The hotel is superb. We were upgraded from a sea-view to a room with a Jacuzzi pool, which made our stay even better. Décor is modern and tasteful, and the hotel overall was well-maintained and clean. The room we stayed in was comfortable and quiet.
Staff, from front-desk to the restaurants and poolside bars, were friendly, helpful and welcoming. Each visit to the main buffet restaurant, we were met by a smiling waiter, and service was swift.
Food-wise, it was ok. There was a good choice on offer in the evenings, it was cooked to a decent standard, but let's be reasonable here - it's not exactly Galvin at Windows, so it was the sort of thing you'd expect from a buffet. Desserts, as always, were great.
The beach, although not private, was clean, and the sea was clear on days when it wasn't windy and choppy. The grounds and swimming pools were well-maintained and clean. There is a relaxed atmosphere, although bagging sun loungers can sometimes be a mission in the mornings, as people get up early and start frying their pale skin from the crack of dawn.
Kalliston Atlantica appears to be very popular with Scandinavians, which would explain why over 60% of guests didn't speak English. I'm fine with this fact. I've never met a Swedish chav. Consequently, there weren't any idiots present during our stay.
With the above in mind, I would visit again, although I appear to have got lucky and found a deal that cost half of what the hotel now charges. Still, I'd say it's well worth it, and I look forward to returning.
