Kalimera Mare Hotel
Ranked #9 of 39 Hotels in Kardamena
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 September 2013

We spent one week in September 2013 in a sea view room - room 704. If you are looking for a vast chrome and concrete hotel the go somewhere else. This is a fabulous, small family run hotel. It is right on the beach. Our room was wonderful with a superb balcony. The service throughout is excellent (- most of the staff are family) and nothing is too much trouble. The food in the restaurant is like home cooking, and a far cry from those 100 yard long self service things! There's no evening entertainment, and it is about two miles from Kardemera, so if you want to party every night then look elsewhere. We would certainly go again.

In the begining it was just bed and breakfast, then they added an optional evening meal, which is home cooked greek food, and now they have addedd a Live Greek Night every two weeks...just keeps getting better and better...had great fun at the Greek Night.

Norway here, the guys at the hotel will know who we are. Gotta give this hotel 5 out of 5 from my own experience. Its close to a relaxing beach, got a nice relaxing pool, the bartender at the pool is a very nice guy when you get to spend some time with him, the breakfast at the hotel got this insane ham wich just blew my mind, the bar at the hotel is also pretty great, especialy if you have Anna as a bartender. She knows how to brighten ur day and make you have a good time. And its a guy working there who really looks like an angry super mario but is the nicest guy in the world. If you choose to go here, you wont regret it. Norway out.

I was a visitor in 2012, so maybe things have changed this year. The owners and family staff are really nice and helpful, pool and bar staff very friendly and restaurant/food all good. I had a lovely sea view and the big room was clean, bed changed v regularly, but not more than average decoration, although the large bed was comfortable! The bar area patio is pretty. There was only one pool open also. Like another visitor commenting here, I was disappointed at having to pay extra costs such as beach lounger, 3E, air con extra, etc it all mounts up so take at least an extra 300E you hadn't budgeted for! I heard complaints about the wifi. The hotel beach is lovely. It is a quiet hotel but there is a bus stop at the door to Kardamena town which has shops and a little harbour. It is a good distance from Kos Town etc and not easy travel. I found the reception staff at that time to be a bit unco-operative, as if i was being a nuisance, although I only asked two questions the whole time I was there! However most staff made me feel very welcome, but I must say I prefer being a bit closer to Kos town. If this hotel had a little something extra special like a Greek Night (there was no entertainment when I was there),and an extra pool open with a BBQ nite perhaps and NO girls coming up to you every day looking for 3E on the beach loungers, it would benefit the whole experience of this family run hotel. A good 3 star.

Room Tip: ask for a sea view and a large bed

I really like this place that is why I am writing. We arrived at 2am and were met by the owner of the hotel. He signed us quickly, answered all the questions and wished a good night. The room was very tidy and cosy and the hot bath, soft white towels and the widest bed ever was the best after a long flight! During the breakfast we were met by friendly staff, everything was delicious, coffee perfect juice juicy and the atmosphere of real home was felt. Personnel charted with us, helped asked about the place we are from. I felt like I was really waited here. The sea is clean and of such different from light blue to dark blue color. Wonderful,and close to the hotel just 3 minutes walk. Also the hotel has two pools. As for people the majority of guests are from Italy, 2 Russian families met by us and one Spanish family. It is a real paradise! Come here, do not hesitate!

Having spend enough time among the palm trees that cover the whole exterior space of Kalimera Mare, I really feel like being in a small paradise! A place quiet, clean and exactly by the sea, suitable for couples, families and even friend groups that are looking for relax and entertainment. The rooms are comfortable,with king size beds and always clean. The staff is very polite and always available. The breakfast is rich and of very good quality, with sweet and salty choices for every kind of taste! The dinner equally worths it! Tasty food, mediterranean tastes with products of good quality bring many people every night in the restaurant. Having being lucky, I have enjoyed also a greek night at the hotel that happens once every week. They offer a spectacle with greek traditional music and dancers along with a barbeque in the lovely balcony of the bar. What's more, the position of the hotel in the middle of the island brings closer every desirable destination, which you can easily reach by car or scooter.
Perfect holidays, in a friendly and warm environment, reccomended to everyone!
Going back to Kos one day, I know for sure where i will stay!

Room Tip: Better choose a sea view room!

This hotel is not 4 star! It's only 3 stars:(. We spend here 4 nights, our price was 65e/night. It's nice hotel for 3 star, but not for 4 star! Ok, positive stuff: Very nice swimming pool; Excellent stuff, speak English, Russian, Italian. Really good breakfast! Great location if you want sun, beautiful quiet beech starting just outside the hotel. We visited all beaches of the island and this one is the best. Kardamena(most appropriate city from hotel) is at 4 km. At Kardamena you will find restaurants, big supermarket, pharmacy, etc. Just 20 seconds from hotel to beach, this is cool! Our recommendation not to take bus(2-2.5euro/person) or taxi(aeroport-hotel 30-35euro). Just take a scooter(15euro/day) or ATV(15euro/day) or Buggy(50euro/day), because you need some transport on the island. From hotel to Kos Town are 25km. Negative: We arrived at 14:30, stuff from lobby said to wait 30minutes! We wait 1 hour before to enter in the room!!! We was tired from the road and they said to wait!!! Most annoying thing is anything you need to pay: air conditioner(4 euro/day), lounges on the beach(4euro), massage chair(1euro), billiard(1euro), etc... Air conditioner is exact in front of the bed :(, it's easy to be get ill... INTERNET! All my devices, like ipad3, notebook, iphone 4s can't connect to internet from the room! You need to go bar or lobby for connection! But...All time you need to ask for reset the router...

Room Tip: For good internet take near lobby. For relax take near pool:)
