This was about our tenth visit to kalamaki although gave a rest for 3 years . Its still our favourite destination and we will be back again for sure.
I can't believe how much the resort as changed in the last 3 years mainly because of the all inclusive hotels.
For our party to go all inclusive for the same week it would of cost me another £1300 , well I must say I DID NOT spend that much eating /drinking out each day where ever I fancied , so I just cannot see the point in all inclusive , where drinks are weak and being tied to the same restaurant every meal.
This resort and the lovely people that run the bars ,shops ,restaurants are clearly struggling at this time of year , The price of food and drinks have barely changed in the last ten years , its so cheap to go self catering.
Breakfasts from 3.5 euros and evening meals from 7 euro for 3 courses advertised around the resort and the food is good. Cocktails and beers from 2 euros . But the bars and restaurants were very quiet , from all I can think is people not leaving their hotels . Is such a shame to see them having to employ prs to try and get you in as this as never been like this til all inclusive turned up.
On one occasion I seen a party of people walking up the streets with plastic glass's all alcohol they had got from there all inclusive hotel , some of them carrying two!!
I heard from a reliable source that all inclusives have to budget 3-4 euros per person per day to make a profit. I will leave it upto your own imagination how they succeed this.
