“A very romantic place for couples”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2011

My husband and I have had an amazing time in Kalami last week. Although we went at the end of September the weather was still gorgeous (still hot enough to be on the beach but the air was breathable unlike in summer) and it wasn't too crowded. After reading some reviews we were worried that we'd have to book restaurants in advance or wake up really early to get a sunbed around the pools but neither was required, there were barely any people around! The hotel has amazing views (we stayed in Block 3) over the Kalami Bay and the balconies are really nice (nice little roofs and olive trees around them), the room was ok, the bathroom could do with some modernisation and the stairs are not a problem. There's no loud music at night coming from the Cocktails and Dreams bar, I don't understand some complaints I've read here, entertainment stops around midnight but you can barely hear the music anyway. The only problem with the hotel was the unholy number of mosquitoes and wasps which did not spare us for a second but that is obviously not the hotel's fault, they're just everywhere and you can barely eat your breakfast without having to shake your arms like a maniac! The food is average throughout the resort I would say, it's not the best or the worst I've ever had but I think I'm just not that keen on Greek cuisine in general, other people might find it fantastic. The drinks however are exceptionally good value for money. I am not a big drinker but the amount of alcohol you get in one glass is about 4 times more than what you get in the UK and I'm not overreacting at all (check out one of my pics). The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful and we even went out clubbing with them one night in a nearby town due to the fact that Kalami is a very small place (4 tavernas, 1 hotel, a few villas, supermarkets, no clubs). The best taverna in my opinion was Thomas's Place because of its amazing food, service, location and entertainment but all of them are ok and they're all situated right on the beach, the chairs and tables are positioned on the beach stones! The beach itself was gorgeous, no sand only stones but very nice stones which you can actually walk on because they're very round, the water was warm and very clear blue and you can be 3 metres in and see tens of massive fish around you so it's well worth investing in a snorkel (9 euros from the hotel supermarket) because it's an amazing experience. Also, if you go to the beach in the afternoon you won't get charged for using the sunbeds or umbrellas, we did this almost everyday and kept waiting to be charged but it only happened on the last day when we got there at 11am after checking out from the hotel (in any case, it's 3 euros for each sunbed and 3 for the umbrella). There are a few other activities available from Blue Bay Travel or from the hotel such as hiring cars, boats, going horse riding, excursions to Corfu Town or Albania (60 euros/person) or cruising. In terms of money there's no ATM in Kalami so it's best to bring cash (euros obviously) with you (there's no risk of having it stolen, I doubt Kalami's ever had any crimes, it's a 200-m long resort with good people) but you can exchange traveller's cheques or use your debit/credit card to take money out at the hotel (5% commission). Also, it's not worth paying 3 euros an hour for the WIFI at the hotel because you can get it for free on your phone in the entire resort except on the hotel's premises (from Thomas's Place which is another reason I loved that taverna!). A few other tips: you cannot drink water from the tap, you need bottled water at all times and make sure you have a bottle with you if like us you arrive there with the Thomson flight at 5am (no supermarkets will be open at that time and you'll be told you have to wait til morning), you can't throw paper in the toilet, there is a separate bin for this purpose, make sure to buy some candles and sprays for the mosquitoes and make sure money will last you until the end of your holiday because the prices are similar to the ones in the UK and you'll spend a minimum of 600 euros (on food mainly) for two people for 7 days unless you go all-inclusive.
All in all, it has been a very relaxing holiday, we were happy with everything, we celebrated one year of marriage and was incredibly romantic having a nice meal on the beach listening to Greek music and it was just the perfect hotel and the perfect resort for us. HOWEVER, although we're both about 23 we prefer small quiet resorts and Kalami was exactly what we asked for; if you're young, single and want to meet people and hit a few clubs at night then stay away from Kalami because you'll be disappointed. Choose wisely and enjoy your holiday!

Just spent a week at the Adonis and had a lovely time, the apartment was basic but clean, the kitchen area was well equipped and had really nice cold fridge! The view from the balcony was amazing, just perfect. The maids cleaned every day but Sunday, the only negative was there was only one towel change for the week. The staff were all freindly and helpful and the food was really nice and very reasonably priced as were the drinks. There was plenty going on at the Adonis most evenings, the Greek night was really good, the dancers were brilliant. Kalami itself is a very small pretty village, we spent every day at the beach which was lovely with crystal clear waters but very rocky and a bit tricky getting in and out of the sea. We ate at most of the Tavernas and every one served a delicious meal probably the best meals we have had in Greece, our favourite being The White House. If your looking for a quiet, lazy week in the sun this is the place to go.

We have just got back from a weeks stay at this hotel and we would defiantly return providing they had air con (or working air con) in the rooms. they have the units installed but we was told they are waiting for a licence to use it?? We stayed on level 3 which required alot of steps and alot if walking up hill, our room had a lovely view of kalami beach. I feel the rooms could do with Updating, but we was told this was getting done ready for next season. The cleaner came 6 days and made the beds up etc but the towels wasn't changed. We do feel they should of being changed a couple of times. Gina on reception is lovely and always happy to help out. We joined in with the hotel entertainment in the cocktails and dreams bar which was quiz night, greek night and karaoke. The staff in the bar do a great job. They also have a great food menu and we tried the food a couple of times and was never dissapoinyed. There is some fantastic tavernas outside the hotel. Our favourite was kalami beach taverna. We ate here a couple of times for lunch and dinner. And eric the waiter really looked after us. Also you can catch the free boat to Agni on an evening that takes you to Agni taverna. That was lovely too. There is a couple of bars near by the hotel,Kalami bar, which Regina and George run and Elia bar which Dorina runs- she's a lovely girl. Both these bars give you a very warm welcome. Also there is Martellas- (this was only open the 1st and 2nd night we was there) which was a shame as he made us a great cocktail. all in all we had a fabtasic week and met some lovely people and look forward to returning. Xx

Stayed here for 7 night from 16th to 23rd Sept. This is our 4th stay at the hotel and will never tire of the location or the friendly staff that work in the hotel (especially Gina in the reception) or in any of the Bar/Tavernas. We stayed on the 3rd floor that has excellent views of Kalami bay. Our only complaints regarding the rooms is that there is NO working air con in the rooms on level 3! although it is installed in the rooms (apparently they are awaiting a license from the local government to be able to use it?) The rooms could also do with some updating, beds, shower etc. The rooms are nearly all at a high level that require a lot of climbing of steps etc, although there is a lift that goes up to level 4, this still does require some climbing. Cleaners did clean and make up the beds 6 days of our stay but think the towels could have been changed more often? The Cocktail & Dreams on site bar has an excellent atmosphere created by Stavros and his staff. There is entertainment on most nights, Karaoke, Quiz, Greek night etc, also they have an excellent menu available day and night. Please do check out the other surrounding tavernas, especially Kalami beach taverna (Eric the waiter), Kalami bar (Regina & George) and Elia bar (Dorina). All fantastic places in a very pictures place with very helpful friendly people. Yamas.

Room Tip: Email the hotel to request a room on the 5th or 1st block if you would like a refurbished room.

We normaly go to Lindos every year but this year we looked and found this wonderfull little place. Its quiet small and very piecefull. The prices are just about the same as home. the beach is quiet and well worth the walk.
It has two pools.
The apartments are basic but clean and the cleaner comes in every day except Sundays.
If you are looking for a quiet and pieceful place to relax this is the place to go.
We shall be returning again.

Room Tip: If you want to go to the beach every day try and get the lower apartments

For those of you used to Greek standards, A&A is really good. Positioned on a hillside there is no avoiding some sort of steep walk or steps to get to your accommodation. It's worth it though as the views of beautiful Kalami bay are worth it.
Cocktails & Dreams bar is super smart and great fun with great staff. We ate there 1 evening and it was very good.
Our favorite eating places were the Whitehouse and Dimitris on the top road. Gina at reception will arrange for you to be collected from Dimitris. The views and food is superb.
Despite Kalami being such a small resort we managed to eat somewhere different for nearly all of the 11 nights we were there by taking advantage of the free boat service to neighboring bays.
Tip - buy some beach shoes from local gift shop. They are essential for getting in or out of the sea which is crystal clear.
The studios are clean and comfortable however we had the chance to look at a refurbished apartment - WOW. Much higher standard.
I have to point out the the VAT rate in Greece has recently been increased from 13% to 23%. Naturally this has increased the price of everything else.The supermarket basics here are pricey do if you like a tea or coffee in your room try and bring your own.
All in all a great holiday at a great place. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed here for 11 nights in Sep 2011. There were 5 in our group - 4 of us booked through Thompson with the other person booking independently.
We have been to Greece many times. These apartments are of a good standard for Greece however our friend who booked separately had a refurbished apartment -WOW! huge terrace and beautiful furnishings. It wax also much larger than our studios. The studios were fine and have great views of the bay.
Be warned - there are steep slopes and steps everywhere. Even on a high floor there is still a very steep walk to the lift.
A&A dominate Kalami but we loved it. The restaurants are great but the 2 highlights are The Whitehouse and Dimitris at the top. Gina at reception will arrange a free lift for you.
We used the beach most days. The sea is stunning. Beds and brollys 3 euros each.
We also hired a boat and went as far north as Kassiopi and south to Barbati - great fun!
The staff at A&A are brilliant - special mentions for Gina and Alex.
Make sure you take advantage of the boat service in the evenings to other bays Agni and San Stefanos where you can use other restaurants.
All in all we had a great holiday and would not hesitate to recommend it providing you don't expect lots and lots if bars and restaurants to choose from.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Built on the gentle slopes of Kalami Bay, between centuries old olive groves, San Antonio Corfu Resort impresses with its' magnificent views over the sea and the small fishing village. Right across the bay, lays Gerald Durrell's white house by the sea and at the foothills of the resort a stone pebbled beach with crystal clear water suggests plenty of quality time under the sun. The typically Mediterranean architecture and the amphitheatrically set room blocks ensure a small village-style setting with nothing to obstruct the ever-present views. The spacious rooms have large balconies, unpretentious design and every facility needed for a carefree summer holiday by the sea. Right at the middle level of the resort, lays one of the most stunning swimming pools on the island, hanging over the majestic bay. An ideal hotspot not only for swimming and sunbathing during the day but for sipping a cool cocktail from the cozy bar during the evening under the clear moonlight. The San Antonio Resort's restaurant offers its culinary treats next to a second swimming pool at the foot of the olive grove, next to the bay. A warm "kalimera" from our passionate local staff welcomes you to the extensive breakfast buffet served daily full of fresh produce from the Corfiot land and everything needed for one to start a great day on the island. The menus for lunch and dinner include healthy Mediterranean delicacies and superb Corfiot specialties with a twist of creativity by our chefs. The new Beach Bar-Restaurant is the ideal choice for bathers, as it offers the most refreshing drinks, various tasty snacks and light meals right on the beach. As the sun goes down, music enlivens the senses with live events organized by the hotel for its discerning guests. For those more active, the hotel beach offers water sports possibilities like water-skiing, paragliding, fun rings, banana rides, canoeing and sea cycling, but if you just want to find your own personal corner on a secluded beach or simply spend the day at the sea there is nothing like hiring a motor boat for yourself from the bay and make your own exploration. Our fully informed reception or service personnel will be glad to assist with ideas, options plus their valuable local information and suggestions. A short ride away lays the bustling little town of Kassiopi, a vibrant cosmopolitan hotspot for shopping, traditional restaurants and a healthy nightlife for all ages. San Antonio Corfu resort is perfectly located to take advantage of what the whole island of Corfu has to offer. Distance from Corfu town, the port and Corfu's international airport is just 32 km (transfer time approx. 45 minutes). ... more   less
