The resort is relatively new (2014) and is located right across from the Kalamata boardwalk, with easy access to the sea (and with its own swimming pool, of course). Some of the rooms have their own private swimming pools. The breakfast was a bit lacking for a 5-star restaurant - the selection can be much nicer. But overall the staff is extremely helpful, and the rooms are nice and modern. 4 out of 5 stars as it is overpriced for its location in the south of Peloponnese but with a relative lack of similar resorts in this part of Greece, would probably stay here again if given a choice. Excellent dinner at the hotel restaurant - delicious choices such as watermelon with goat cheese, or risotto with squid ink.
