An efficiently run hotel with charming and helpful staff. Right on the beach (stones) with beautiful swimming in Kalamata bay and stunning views of the surrounding mountains. The buildings are set round the central pool and the dining/bar area is to one side of this which makes for very pleasant al fresco dining. The food is good with a large choice to suit all tastes. The wine is outrageously expensive (28euros) and pretty grim. We longed to have a caraf of local wine (which was very good and 2-3 euros in local tavernas) with our dinner each night, but this is not available at the hotel.
There is a very pleasant spa with indoor pool, gym and sauna. Christiana gives wonderful massages but unfortunately the treatment rooms are not air-conditioned and so even in September I found them unpleasantly stuffy and hot. Goodness knows what they must be like in the height of Summer.
An ideal base for touring this corner of Greece.
