We spent 3 nights at Villa Kalista and were treated like VIPs from the minute we arrived to the moment we left. The villas are beautifully done with all your needs catered for and more! The seafood was excellent. The entire staff were there whenever needed always smiling & willing. We hope to return later in the year.
