We stayed here for our honeymoon in June 2011 and were devastated to find when we arrived that they had double booked the luxury suite! We were lucky that they at least had a room with a sea view available for us as the views from the balcony were stunning. We knew Kalymnos well so knew that we were going to see some beautiful sunsets behind Telendos, and we weren't disappointed! The "sea" side of the hotel is very peaceful - you can go to sleep at night listening to the waves lapping up the beach. The "land" side is awful, unless you intend spending all night clubbing! It is noisey from all the bars and the constant beeping from mopeds travelling along the road. On the plus side, the location of the hotel is perfect for nights out and Kalymnos never seems to sleep so there is always plenty of entertainment and shops open. Breakfast at the hotel was pretty poor. You can probably survive it for a week, but we got sick of it during our 2 week stay. Bread, yoghurt, cereal and some very strange looking scrambled egg! The hotel is really clean and the staff are all very kind. The rooms all have air conditioning units, although there is an additional charge to hire the remote to actually turn the units on. The pool is pleasant and it's great to be able to lay by the pool but also only be a few metres away from the beach. There is also an onsite bar, although as with the rest of Kalymnos the prices are quite expensive for beer or cocktails. If you are coming to Kalymnos to climb then the Hotel is perfect. It's just below the (only?) via ferrata. You can see many of the crags from the hotel and there's plenty of parking for mopeds. The nearest crag is only about 20-30 minutes walk and there are a few cafes on the way where you can pick up a preordered roll. I think the Plaza is worth a visit but I personally would never want to rent a land view room. Have a good trip and take a printout of the booking confirmation in case you get double booked.
