Superlatives are very over-used nowadays but I can't find enough to describe our stay at the Olivemare. This very small eco-friendly hotel is just gorgeous with beautifully decorated rooms and communal areas. The staff are wonderful; friendly and helpful with no indication that anything is too much trouble for them. The food was lovely; especially the buffet breakfast. The surrounding... More

Olivemare is certainly a triumph in every sense, and a true credit to Marilena and her impeccably mannered team. Special mention must be given to Maria who will cater for your every culinary desire. A true gem. Breakfast is certainly not to be missed. The rooms are beautifully appointed with a minimalist feel and spotlessly clean. The pool is also... More

We spent a week at Olivemare for our honeymoon and I am so glad we did! Olivemare is the most amazing and relaxing place we have ever been to. I wouldn't be able to even call it a hotel as it is MUCH more than that. It felt like we had a private villa for the week. The house is... More

This is the perfect place to stay for a relaxing, quiet holiday - there is a zen-like atmosphere here. We did not feel we were staying in a hotel, it felt more like a private home. We loved everything about it and will return if we visit Katelios.

We enjoyed our stay once we found the hotel. The notices were missing on the road side - perhaps they take them down when the hotel is full. We found this a most relaxing place to stay. It is situated conveniently for easy access to the restaurants and beach of Katelios yet far enough away to be quiet - certainly... More

We cannot speak highly enough of this gorgeous hotel and its fantastic staff and owner. The hotel is simplistic chic at its finest. Beautifully decorated with a great pool and garden. The hotel only has 5 rooms which means that most of the time you feel like you have it to yourself. Each room has its own private terrace with... More

We stayed at Olivemare recently and had a great time. The hotel is petite and stylish with a contemporary Greek feel - think clean white-washed walls and minimalist decoration. It's surrounded by a beautifully maintained olive grove with parking available to guests and is a short walk from Katelios beach. Katelios itself is relatively small and has a selection of... More

I don't know where to start from, literally. Everything was perfect. Olivemare is a little paradise. If you need to relax this is the place to book. The 5 rooms are just lovely, bright and quiet. Breakfast with local food is excellent. The pool is relaxing and cool. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Maria is a great cook and... More
