This hotel is perfect for a relaxing family holiday. The location is very quiet, yet only ten kilometres from the city center, with easy parking. The interiors are a bit dated and unexciting, but clean and welcoming. What makes this hotel is its impeccable, lush garden and pleasant pool area. Our 'family bungalow' was located next to the pool, which made it very easy and safe (and exciting) for the boys (aged 9 and 6) to go to and from on their own. The poolside restaurant is convenient for those not wanting to leave the hotel, but the food was very mediocre (not recommended). Across the street from the hotel, perched on the cliff, is the hotel bar, possibly one of the best kept secrets in Kalamata: comfortable setting (large deck for drinks, snacks, and sunbathing), spectacular views (and sunsets) across the bay to Kalamata - a great place to sip cocktails and play word games while admiring the scenery. From the deck, a staircase takes you down the cliff onto a tiny pebble beach, which is shady for most of the morning. An elevator and tunnel lead from the hotel's parking lot directly onto the deck (safer than crossing the street). I highly recommend Akti Taygetos. If the interiors were upgraded and the restaurant food improved this would be an absolute gem.
