Karalis Beach

Reviewed November 18, 2012

I stayed at the Karalis Hotel and the view was spectacular! I overlooked the bay and had a great balcony to step onto each morning. My roommate and I laughed because our "double-bed" was made of two twin beds smooshed together inside a double bed frame. Overall the room was very comfortable and there was an elevator in the hotel (something sometimes hard to come by in Greece). The food was incredible and the cooks handled my special requests for no meat well.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat! The view was unforgettable and the staff was incredibly friendly.

It's a nice hotel, not luxurious in any way. It's cheap, it is near the center of Pylos, and it has the best view possible. This view is what I'll remember from the whole Peloponnese trip. The breakfast is good and the personnel friendly. Recommended !

Alright, let's be honest, it isn't a 5 star hotel, yet considering everything else, this is a hotel I'd always go back! Found it by chance while exploring Peloponnese peninsula, with Voidokilia beach on my mind. The view is to die for, the balcony was breathtaking: private, cozy, with a huge sofa on it! The room was somewhat cramped by old furniture and the bathroom slightly old, yet I must say it was perfectly clean! I was truly dazzled by the bay, the view on the rocks that literally acted as a gate to the quiet bay. The breakfast was just great, on the upper floor balcony, where you could sit and feed the fish down below in the crystal clear water, hundreds of them with all the colors of the rainbow, in the sea! Saw two dolphins as well swimming calmly in the bay. The fortress of Pylos is just a few meters away, which offered even better view towards the Mediterranean sea. The Voidikilia beach is is some 15 km away. Strongly recommended!

Room Tip: Look for the sea-view!

What an unexpected find! After arriving in Pylos late one Saturday as an unplanned stop in our travels searching frantically for a hotel, a helpful gentleman from Karalis Hotel pointed us in the direction of Karalis Beach Hotel. Thai unique hotel is literally on the beach. Built at the end of the town on the corner on top of the sea, with newly renovated rooms and showers (a nice shower is always a great selling point). Breakfast was plentiful and is had on the balcony above the sea. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. That being said, we shall definitely return to Karalis Beach Hotel.

We planned to stay for just 2 nights but extended to stay for 5. The hotel is at the end of a cul-de-sac so no through traffic, ....only the sound of fishing boats going to and from the harbour, and only a short walk to the magnificent castle. The rooms were well furbished, cool and comfortable and the views from both the sea facing bedroom and the bar/restaurant are second to none! We found the staff both charming and helpful, and breakfasts during our stay more than adequate.

N.B.This is the Karalis BEACH Hotel....it is most unfair of 7elpida to post a review of the Karalis Hotel, a completely different establishment sited on one of the main routes into Pylos, under this heading.

Room Tip: Ensure you book a sea-facing rooom

The hotel has just been remodeled. It has never been the lap of luxury but enjoys the best views of the bay and of the castle. The small size of the rooms is compensated by the balconies, and the staff really tries hard to please. Good breakfasts and free Internet. Rooms can be noisy when busy.

We visited Pylos during the last week of August 2011.We hadn' t made a reservation and we were pleased to find Karalis Beach Hotel (not Karalis Hotel - this is another hotel, so be carefull!!!). Hotel rooms were fully renovated few months ago, therefore everything in the room and bathroom was new (beds,tv,towels,bathroom,furniture etc). The hotel has a very nice sea view for ther rooms which are located on the front side of it. It is very close to the center of Pylos (5 minutes walk on feet), so you don' t need to use your car. The staff was ok! Breakfast was served in a balcony with marvelous sea view to Navarino Bay but this part of the hotel was not renovated. Breakfast's quality was so and so.(e.g. bread and croissants were not fresh...).If you intend to visit this hotel make sure to reserve a room with sea view because the rooms which are located on the back side of the hotel have no balcony (have only a window) and that is kind of a problem because you cannot dry your bathing suit or your towels.Comparing to the other hotels in Pylos (a place were people don't know how to treat tourists and care only for money), Karalis Beach Hotel is the best choice according to my opinion and is value for money.
