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

I absolutely loved our stay at Olivemare! We married two days before we arrived at Olivemare, so we went there for our honeymoon and got rewarded! The hotel itself is like a modern villa with only 5 rooms. We very lucky and the owner Marilena gave us the biggest room in the middle. It was very clean, bright and the... More

We stayed at Olivemare for the second time last week, our first visit being two years ago, and we were not disappointed. From the moment you walk through the door the relaxing feel is unchanged, the quality of everything is unquestionably as good despite being two years older, and the tranquillity is exactly the same. However, take a moment to... More

Lovely accommodation in Katelios - Marilena has really thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing. From the super peaceful pool area to the brilliant breakfasts that you can have served in your room, she really has gone the extra mile. We came away feeling very chilled out - all the rooms appeared to be equally lovely from... More
