“Uncomparable location...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2009

Messinia is my fathers homeplace, so I knew the area and it's hotels before choosing Messinian Bay for a weekend. It's located 10mins by car to Kalamata's centre, so it's mostly recommended for travelers with a car. But...it's built on one of the hottest spots of the area, just above the magnificent messinian bay, facing the beautiful quai of Kalamata. All the rooms are in the hotel front and have a splendid view and a balcony for hours of relaxation. Our room was modern and clean, but the view was "all the money". What I must say is that we stayed at the hotel off season and we were two out of 6 or 8 customers- and we also had a good price. I really don' t know what the prices are in the summer, given that greek hotel owners have the bad habit to raise prices extraordinarily when tourists come. At any case, for a car traveller I think it' s the best choice to see the beautiful city of Kalamata. For the summer season, it is also the nearest hotel to the great bars and clubs of Verga Kalamatas.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2007

We stayed here two nights and were very happy. The food at the hotel restaurant is really great. The service is sort of weird but charming - the staff seems almost shy but are nice and helpful.
There was one serious problem: The AC in one of the rooms did not work the second night. But it wasn't hot enough for us to get up at night and make a fuss about it, if we had I'm sure we'd been allowed to change rooms.
We stayed in a section that was newly built and the rooms had balconys overlooking the bay with sun set going down over the ocean. The setting is really beautiful. I would consider going back here for a longer stay.

  • Liked — The great sea views from the rooms, restaurant and bar.
  • Disliked — The AC broke the second night. But I am sure they would have sorted this out if we had complained during the night.

My wife and I stayed there for 3 nights in August. The beds are tiny, the AC shuts off when you leave the room (meaning the room is very hot when you return), and the bathroom needs a serious upgrade! However, the hotel does have potential -- they are supposed to remodel the hotel soon so it may improve. The view is stunning.

  • Liked — The view
  • Disliked — Bathroom and AC (lack of)

This small property is located in Almyro, just outside Kalamata. The rooms are small, and simply furnished, however there is a pool and the sea is so close you can hear it from the oceanview rooms. There is no sandy beach, so water shoes are helpful in getting into the water, which is extremely clear, and gets deep quickly - like swimming in a natural pool, thanks to the cement platforms the hotel built. I like this property better than the two older mainstays in Kalamata, as they are too big, and seem over-crowded to me. I would return to this property, as there are few offerings in this area, which seems strange, since the environs of Kalamata has a lot to offer by way of sightseeing.
