“Amazing hospitality, beautiful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

My family and I recently had the opportunity to vacation at the beautiful Irida Resort located in Kalo Nero beach. Upon arriving at the resort, we were immediately struck by the warm welcome we received from the owner (Kostas) and his kind family. Even though some of our family members speak Greek, Kostas spoke English very well, which was very helpful. We had to climb 3 flights of stairs to reach our room, but Kostas’ son assisted with our luggage, making the climb much easier. The room itself was beautifully decorated, spacious enough for our family of 4 adults, and offered an amazing view of the beach. The gorgeous sunsets over the water (which Kalo Nero is famous for) were breathtaking to watch from our beach side balcony in the evenings. The other amenities in the room were also excellent. Our beds were very comfortable, the room was well-ventilated, and the air-conditioning worked extremely well. Free wifi was available throughout the resort, but in some locations in our room (usually areas located away from the entrance), the signal was very weak or nonexistent.
Every morning of our 10 day stay, Kostas’ wife, Rena, prepared delicious homemade breakfasts, including eggs, bread, salad, rice pudding, yogurt, coffee, loukoumades, and other pastries. She also offered to make anything that we requested. Everything was extremely fresh and always served with a smile. We frequently received so much food in the mornings that it was difficult to eat anything for the rest of the day! Rena even personally prepared homemade pastitsio for us one evening for dinner. We all agreed it was one of the best pastitsios we had ever eaten.
The hospitality we experienced truly exceeded all of our expectations. In addition to the food and drinks that were always on offer, Kostas spent hours sharing his wealth of knowledge about local restaurants, sites, Greek history, philosophy, and museums. We spent hours every day speaking with Kostas and his wife, and they truly made us feel as though we were spending time with family. Interacting with the Kostas family was one of the most memorable and enjoyable parts of our trip to Greece. We will definitely be returning and recommend the Irida Resort to anyone visiting the area.

Kostas & Rena made extra efforts to ensure we had a wonderful stay. Outstanding breakfast. Beach sunsets are fabulous. There is an outside shower for use after a swim in the sea.
Hotel grounds are immaculate & there is a playground with slide,etc for children.
Rooms are very well appointed. Beds are high quality.
Highly recommended.
Would give it a 12 out of 10.

Room Tip: Upper floor rooms have beautiful view of countryside or hotel grounds. Some have sea view.

We stayed at the Irida Hotel for two nights to relax and visit Olympia and other nearby attractions. The hotel was very clean and the breakfast was excellent. The owners made us feel like home and were very helpful. They are great people, however when we followed the recommendation for a local restaurant on the first night we felt that the recommendation was better for his network than for our dining experience. The restaurant Zafyros served tasteless food. The breakfast at the hotel was so much different; it was really tasty and made of local ingredients. The second night we went to the Panorama Restaurant at Marathopolis, and had a great dinner.
We had a great time at Irida Hotel and would recommend the hotel to anyone, just be aware that the water pipes in the shower could be very noisy and waking up people in both of the connected rooms.

This hotel located almost directly on the beach provides a very nice Greek hospitality with a lovely personal touch of the owner. The hotel is in a perfect location and has very good facilities. In the morning you will get a very extensive Greek breakfast, with local products.
The big garden and the sunset view in the evening are really beautiful.
There is a kilometers long quiet sand beach within a short car distance (5 min drive) right from the hotel and short walk distance (5 min walk) beach with chairs and umbrellas on the left side of the hotel. Five sea side Taverns are also within 5 minutes walking distance.

Room Tip: All rooms are identical but some of them has a see view
