“perfect for honeymooners”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

If Mani wasn't full of great places to explore, I could stay inside this wonderful hotel the whole weekend! Kyrimai is luxurius and simple at the same time.
There's so much to enjoy: cosy rooms with comfortable beds, a gourmet restaurant (with stunning view to the sea, the Cavo Grosso and the village of Gerolimenas), where they serve their delicious breakfast with hand made jams and traditional pies, sunbathing on the stone boardwalk, swimming in the clear blue water in front of the hotel or in the pool with the comfortable sunbeds, have a romantic dinner in the restaurant overlooking the illuminated great rock, relax in the beautifully furnished and decorated lobby or visit the small museum with items of old Mani.

A very graphic and beautiful hotel, at the sea side where we have enjoyed our swim. The room was perfect with balcony to the sea. The view was fantastic. The staff was very polite and friendly. The food was delicious at the hotel's restaurant.We enjoyed our stay we will be back for sure.

No words to describe the scenery the rooms the hotel itself. Everything is stunning. We have been there two years ago on our first trip as a couple and now went to celebrate our anniversary. If you need a quite luxurious holiday this is the place to visti in the area. Don't forget to visit their restaurant with unique recipes for an exquisite taste. Highly recommended.

Kyrimai hotel is a gem in the wild, rocky landscape of Mani peninsula. Situated at the entrance of the laconian seaside village of Gerolimenas this typical tower mani mansion is the perfect setting for both couples in love and adventurous travellers of all ages who want to taste the real Mani. Personally kyrimai is one of my favourite destinations in the world and when you go there you will find out why- just a hint..it's oh so quiet...

Reading the reviews with complaints about the service in this hotel, I wonder if the guests forget that they are in Mani and not in the Savoy in London : this is a small, extremely lovely hotel, in a beautiful location, with very tasteful rooms : the service is more than satisfying for any normal person who doesn't have crazy expectations from a barren place like Mani.
Besides, I would like to signal the particular kindness of Mr. Aris Kyrimis at the front desk : when I requested to buy one of their very beautiful and thick towels ( among the best I have ever seen in any hotel around the world ), he simply gave it to me as a present, refusing any payment ( I guess that's why Greece is in serious trouble : too much generosity and not enough miserable greed like in those American and Northern European countries ).
The bottom line is : do you want to stay in the only top class hotel in the Mani Peninsula ?
If yes, you must pay the requested price for the rooms and not later find an escape valve for your anger by blaming the service.
Highly recommended.

We stayed at Kyrimai on first days of June.. The hotel is beautiful and very-well located. The reception and lobby are very nice devorated, the rooms have cocomat matress and Korre's amenities..
But we were very disappointed from the restaurant and the owners. The menu is created by well known Greek chef Giannis Baxevanis but although it is based on local products it;s not good. Two much oil or butter, no taste at all. We woke up in the night with stomach pain..
Our room was big enough but the bed made strange noises in every movement (creak). We ask for better room but they didn;t gave us..And that ungly smell...Awfull!
In general owners were unpolite and no friendly at all..
Pitty because its a great place and it could be a marvellous choice for vacations..

Nice and clean and fresh scented rooms, an amazing kitchen,. an exellent group of professional staff members, but runned by totally unprofessional owners. Here is why:
1. we were told that smoking is forbidden in the whole building, and the senior owner, who told us that we could not smoke, smoked in the building in the television area........
2.There is a small parking area outside of the hotel, and those spots are taken from the cars that belong to the owners..............
3.A dog that barks at you everytime you walk in the hotel,and sometimes bites is running aroumd free.........
4.The SAME lady cleaned our room, made and served us breakfast, made and served us coffee and served us dinner at night! The front desk lady was there at noon and was still there late night......
5.The owner preffered to wake up an employee who was ubviously not working, and too ubvious that he was sleeping to help us carry suitcases than help us himself.......
Things like that make us wonder...........
