“Fantastic Hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2011

Its a really nice hotel built in the traditional Mani (area) style. Rooms are very comfortable, the beautiful (5km!) beach is right in front, personnel is friendly and professional. My only remark is the food which I believe is not up to the rest of the services standard. But there are many good taverns in the area, so you won't be disappointed with the delicious Greek food...

Dear guest,

we would like to thank you for your nice comments. Since we were not completely ready with our restaurant we couldn't offer you the menu that we now have especially created to meet the needs of our guests. Aris, the chef de cuisine, ensures that there is always a good variety prepared with the best local products and fresh sea food.
We will be happy to host you again in Castello Antico Hotel and offer you an unforgetable culinary experience with delicious local wines.

Castello Antico is a new, beautifully appointed hotel whose location is outstanding! The rooms are modern and clean, the staff is hospitable and gracious. The pool area is welcoming, the grounds are well landscaped and the restaurant and bar has delicious food and drinks. In addition to all of those attributes...the beach is steps away. Castello Antico offers a fresh experience and one that should not be missed.

It was the first summer with our baby girl 3 months old...the hotel is new, very clean , next to the beach and the stuff is amazing, helpful. The manager and the stuff made our stay very easy....the fresh fish and the boiled vegetables in the restaurant are the best dishes...
And for the evening a cold drink next to the pool is a perfect idea.
We will defenitely return this summer.

What a great place, built in the old Mani-style with rocks, which fits perfectly into the landscape. Very quiet, just at the beach, a perfect place to relax and calm down.
