“One week stay from July 15th-22nd, 2013”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

We decided to stay at Kinetta beach Resort because we wanted a resort vacation that would allow us to see some of Greece.

Our review:
Location:
The resort is located approximately 1 hour from Athens airport. We took a train from Athens to get to the resort. We were told by phone that the hotel was located across the street from the train station. This was not true...we had to walk over a kilometer with our luggage on a gravel road (with no sidewalk). When we got to the resort I noticed my suitcase wheel had broke as a result of the all terrain walk.

The location of the hotel and the views are nice. You can look out to the sea or into the mountains and it is really pretty.

Service:
Upon arrival we were very surprised that no one helped up with our luggage (which now no longer rolled). We were told to go eat and to leave our luggage at the front desk and then after eating we could "do the paperwork".
After our lunch we returned to the desk and were given our room keys and a map. We were again quite surprised that no one was going to help find our room, or carry our luggage, or even provide a trolley (remember the broken suitcase). We had some trouble finding our room, but a housekeeper was able to help even though she did not speak English.
The majority of the staff did not speak English and they catered mostly to French guests. The staff seemed very friendly to the French guests but we felt that most staff members were unpleasant to us.

Housekeeping:
Someone entered our room everyday to make our beds and replace the towels. We were surprised that empty cups and garbage were not thrown out. We were also not given a do not disturb sign which made us feel like someone could come in at any time.
On our second last day I was very shocked when my shampoo went missing. After questioning my husband and looking everywhere in our room we realized that the house keeper must have thrown it out. It was in a tupperware container which I had placed on the floor beside the shower. This made me very uncomfortable. I then felt like someone had been in our room and gone through our things. I don't understand why an empty coffee cup would not get thrown out, but my shampoo in a tupperware container would get thrown out???

Room:
When we finally were able to find our room we were happy with how it looked. It was simple but nice. The bathroom looked recently renovated and the shower was large. The room had automatic shutters that made the room completely dark which was great for sleeping/ sleeping in. We requested a king bed, as most couples would do on vacation and we were very surprised to see 2 double beds side by side. We were SO tired from our 30 minutes metro ride, plus 1 hour train ride, plus 30 minute walk to the resort, plus 15 minutes trying to find our room that we did not say anything. I don't know if this is what they would consider a king bed or if it was a mistake. The beds were comfortable and we did have lots of room to sleep though.

Food & Drinks:
At the resort their were 2 restaurant and a snack bar. The food was good and their was a large variety to chose from. The service in the small restaurant was ok. We were able to find a clean/ set table and the servers usually brought water and wine in a reasonable time.

On the other hand, the large restaurant was very chaotic. We did not once find a clean/ set table to enjoy our breakfast or lunch at. We then would have to track down one of 3 or 4 servers to get cups and cutlery. There was approximately 100 tables in the restaurant being served by these 3 or 4 servers.
On Saturday night they closed the small restaurant forcing us to go to the big restaurant. This was the worst eat out experience we have even had. Guests were pouring into the restaurant faster then the tables came available. The manager stood in the doorway and told people to find seats inside so that they could eat and leave quicker. It was far from a relaxing vacation dinner. The servers and the manager were running around like crazy and everyone looked unhappy (guests and waitstaff). I don't know if every Saturday is like this. We felt like we had to go out of our way and thank the one nice server because she was on the verge of tears because of the situation.

There were 3 main bars where you could get drinks throughout the day, a beach bar, pool bar and a dining room bar. Each bar had time restriction on what you could get and when you could go there. The beach bar was open during the day and had a long line up every time we went up for a drink. Beer seemed to be available most of the time and it was served in tiny plastic glasses mostly filled with foam. You also had the option of ouzo or gin and for about an hour in the afternoon you could also get vodka or rum. When we booked an all inclusive trip this is not exactly what we expected.

Overall, we enjoyed our vacation. We were able to have a great time and enjoy the beach and the views. We probably would not recommend this resort to friends or family.

We thank you for taking the time to comment on our Kinetta Beach Resort & Spa.
We are located approximately 35 minutes from the center of Athens by car and 1hr exactly with the train. From the train station we are situated approx 500-800 meters. Walking this distance takes usually 15minutes not more. This is mentioned on our website and every website that has a description of our Hotel plus all brochures we are included in. We find it difficult that someone from the reception replied to you that we are located across the station since all our front desk staff has been with us for many years...
Regarding porters, unfortunately our resort including all 4* Resorts in Europe do not offer porter services unless specially requested.
All our staff except our Housekeeping speaks English, French and in some instances German as well.
We apologise for your Tupperware container shampoo that you lost, probably your Maid in charge of your section misunderstood as it laid on the floor beside the shower and threw it away. Especially when all bathrooms are equipped with Shampoo & Shower gel dispensers. As far as the disposal basket is one of the checkpoints on every room that all personnel in Housekeeping check so maybe it wasn't the day of full cleaning your room but a change of towels or bed turnover service.
Regarding the Double beds this is common on all European countries to have certain number of rooms equipped with DBL beds and these are given by priority or on requests by the travel agents. If you did not request this from the beginning it is very possible that there was no availability.
We find awkward the fact that on our main restaurant you did not find a clean table since it has a capacity of at least 400 people at any given time. On a daily basis there are more servers than the ones you mention. As far as your statement that a dinning area with such a capacity that caters most of our guests for breakfast, lunch and dinner, everyone seemed unhappy to you...
Nevertheless, Saturday is the day of arrivals & departures of our French clientele therefore, it might get a bit hectic.
We appreciate your recognition on your server's stellar service.
During the day on the surrounding bars we offer all drinks in plastic glasses for the safety of our clients and mainly our younger clientele (kids). Broken glasses in the Pool area and accidents on the beach from broken glasses is a major concern and we do everything in order to avoid incidences like these.
We do appreciate your wonderful comments on the location of our resort as well as the beach and the view. We sincerely hope to welcome you or your friends in the near future to our premises.

We went for 12 days near the last two weeks in June.
Booked through Transat and flew from Toronto.
We saw this deal, did a bit of research and thought it was the right place to go, base ourselves there and see some of Greece.
First of all, this place is far from Athens, about a hour train trip. The local station in Kinetta is a 15 minute walk from the resort. I read somewhere here about someone feeling unsafe on or near the trains, well we never felt that way once. The train and subway system is modern and fairly clean. Also it could be that I am a rather big guy!

We arrived by bus to the resort from the airport about a hour away.
They took our luggage off and told us it would be safe so we could eat.
They left everyones' luggage outside and unattended.
There was no one to eventually take our luggage to our room.....

Our rooms were basic. Beds were alittle hard and so were pillows.
Bathrooms were nice, showers worked well.

The food!
I figure I have been to 10 different countries, and maybe twice that amount of resorts. The food at this place was one of the worse we have seen.
Usually we "figure" it out, get what we like and generally stick with that if the food is not great.
We tried that here and it didn't work.
Let's start with breakfast....
We went when they opened and the buffet food was not hot.
Fresh fruit included canned pears and peaches.
Luckily some days they had watermelon and some fresh fruit, but not all days.
There was no omelette station, so barely warm eggs. Generally the same everyday.
Lunch!
The same problem as breakfast....but get this, they served leftovers disguised as different dishes from the night before. They can deny all they want, but I know from experience.
We ate alot of feta, tomatoes, cucumber, olives and olive oil which were good.
Dinner, they had theme nights but was still barely warm from buffet. Again we ate the feta, tomatoes, etc.....except on Italian night, they don't put out Greek
food that night.
Snacks, in the afternoon, basic lousy sandwiches and desserts.
Desserts at meals were basically average.

Drinks....very weird here.
Went to get a rum and coke in the middle of the afternoon and was told it wasn't available that day as the drink of the day was gin and tonic. Excuse me, I can't get a rum and coke on a resort.
Bar hours, couldn't tell you.
Two pool bars, one(the quiet one)never opened once.
The busy one would be open and sometimes not.
The beach bar was busy because no others were open. The bartender there poured beer in juice size plastic glasses and even then it was half foam.
The bar for the entertainment was open late afternoons and evenings.
Amusing, one night we watched the Manager at closing and right on 11pm, he swipes his hand down and tells them they are closed. Swipes his hand like a umpire in baseball!

Now for the worst part...This is a 100% French resort, they do not cater to English, Polish, Russian or any other part of the world.
Most staff spoke English though.
The bad entertainment was all in French!
One night we arrived when the entertainment was on and we were the only ones not dressed in white. White night was posted in French.
The magazines at the store were in French.
Not one single English channel on TV.
We were aware of this being a French hotel, but they failed to mention or left out alot of information that would have staying elsewhere.

The resort itself is nice. The quiet pool we hung by was nice, looking out from the dining areas to the sea was beautiful.

We ended leaving alot, wanting to see Greece, not a suburb resort of Athens.
One of our best meals was in Agioi Theodoroi. We got on the local train, went over one stop and walked to the beach. After that we went into town, away from the sea and found alittle outside restaurant. We picked our meals from pictures and it cost 13.50 euro. Everything was awesome and we went back full.

Would I go back? To Greece in a second, just not to Kinetta.

Dear Sir,

We thank you for taking the time to evaluate and comment our Hotel Kinetta Beach Resort & Spa although we strongly believe that you are confused and comparing European resort Hotels with Mexico all inclusive resorts of the Caribbean ones.
We feel sorry that you couldn’t explore Greece more since our Hotel is 56klm from the centre of Athens or 35 min driving. During your 2 week stay we are positive that you noticed our vast selection of excursions to all major travel destinations in the mainland including Delphi (centre of the Earth) or Olympia (first Olympic Games), or the 1day cruise to Poros island, Hydra and Aegina island, or the mini boat tour to the Corinth Canal or the classical Athens City tour. Of course the location of the Hotel is mentioned both in the Brochure of Transat as well as their site and finally our site too with an extensive map.
Regarding your concerns of your luggage, we recognise that after an overseas flight and another hour with the coach, all clients feel tired. In order to avoid having to wait the registration of the whole group first and then to get to their room and then go to restaurant, as a courtesy we keep the luggage in front of the reception area and let everyone relax and enjoy a nice meal. Approximately 600 travellers are staying with us every Week. We assure you not one has ever lost a luggage since our resort is fully protected and surrounded by fence, a security guard on the front gate on 24/7 basis. We apologise for having to take your own luggage to your room but our resort does not advertise porter service in any brochure, internet or else unless it is requested specifically.
We appreciate your comments on our Rooms.
Regarding your Dinning Experience. Once again you are comparing with the Mexican or Caribbean resorts. Please note that all clients in our hotel evaluate our services, dining experience, our staff on a weekly basis and we assure you our scores are among the Highest ratings of Lookea Clubs around the world! Breakfast we serve daily at least three kinds of eggs every day there is a different menu so no clients that stay with us for a week will find the same dish twice. After two weeks stay you had we are positive that you witnessed the selection. Also fresh fruits on a daily basis plus we serve composts of fruits which yes they are canned. As you may know, compost fruits are processed and canned within syrup worldwide.
As far as your concerns on disguised foods we assure you that in order to serve at least 6-8 warm main courses every day for lunch and dinner, the basic ingredients like meat (Veal or Lamb) are used at least once or twice in every buffet. Different preparation, different recipes, different process.
We are glad that you enjoyed our local specialties such as feta & tomatoes and olive oil.
We sure hope you enjoyed our themed nights such as the Italian night and the BBQ night.
As for snacks it is a European custom in all Resorts that serve snacks in the afternoon to offer cookies and cake and sandwiches plus coffee, tea and other refreshments.
Daily we serve more than 4selections of desserts in lunch and dinner.
During the Times of All Inclusive (not like in Mexico during all day) in Europe there are certain hours in the noon and from afternoon till midnight. As for the cocktail of the day we serve one special cocktail every day as well as ALL other drinks that are included in the All Inclusive program. Rum is included!
We are surprised by your comments regarding other countries represented in our Hotel after two weeks stay. The main market is French and it is mentioned on all brochures this is why they have their own animation. We also include Russian, Polish, Austrian, Swiss and Americans as well as Canadians (French & English speaking).. Our staff is mainly bilingual French & English and German in many cases.
As for English Channel on TV, except the BBC and the CNN that are played on all rooms, all TV stations in Greece have all their films in the original language with subtitles.

Finally we appreciate your positive comments on the pools, the views of the Hotels and the beach.

We thank you and hope to welcome you or your friends once again to our Resort.

Beautiful facility, great choice and taste of food, nice location directly on the beach (although in the middle of nowhere). Very convinient connection to Athens, Corytnh and couple of other places. Animations only for thee French which is certainly one of the biggest disavantages for all the guests who are not speaking French. If you speak French - go there , if you don't - you better seek something else to feel better attention from the service an enterntainment site.

Dear Madame,
We thank you for taking the time to writte your great comments on our Hotel Kinetta Beach Resort & Spa.
As you understand the main market of our Hotel is French therefore, they have their own animation. Nevertheless, we have many guests from other coutnries such as English (USA, Canada), Austrians, Swiss, Russians and others. We do our best to serve all clients and in no case there is any kind of priority on behalf of our staff.
We sincirely hope to welcome you or your friends in the near future.

My fiancée and I traveled to Kinetta Beach hotel for a week in early June 2013. This resort is a great deal, as the flight to Athens alone can be comparable to the price we paid for one week at this resort.

It certainly is not what we are used to for "all-inclusive". The limited hours and restrictions on drinks make it very challenging at times to enjoy a tasty beverage. The house wine was not drinkable for us, but others we spoke with found the rose wine OK. Set meal times put a bit of a damper on a laissez-faire vacation mode but they are definitely doable, just bring or buy some snacks for in between times or those days you sleep in. The hotel does keep their buffet open late for people on transat excursions and they open the continental breakfast before excursion timings to ensure their guests can eat. The food was terrible, please do not assume this is Greek (or European) food. Luckily there is a great restaurant right beside the resort, their food is tasty and their fish is really fresh.There is another great beach restaurant if you walk the beach to the left of the resort about 20 mins, it's fantastic! If you need a good coffee (trust me, you might) just head right on the main road for about 5 mins and you will find a grocery store/restaurant/cafe complex that has delicious coffees, espressos and the like.

Water is not included in the resort, but you can purchase a 500ml bottle for .5euros or you can walk to the convenience store down the road (towards the suburban railway station) and buy 6 x 1.5L for under 3euros.

We did the 3 islands excursion offered from the hotel, this was incredible and we recommend it to all to travel to Kinetta, what a beautiful trip!

We did 2 separate days in Athens, we walked to the suburban railway station and paid 10euros for a return ticket to Athens. You can find the schedules for the suburban railways posted at the front desk. We changed from suburban railway to the subway station and got off at Syntagma to tour all over. If you get off the subway at the Monastriaki you can walk right into the market or tour around many of the streets connecting to Ermou. We also visited Acropolis which is well worth it. For 12euros you can see all the main tourist sites in Athens.

As people have said before, be well aware of the pickpocketers in Athens, as well as the scammers on the streets trying to sell you things, if it sounds to good to be true it is! A local was telling us that their trend right now is to try and sell "iphones" that are wrapped up all in their packages, but when you open it, it is just a fake plastic phone. A great tip is to cover the wristband you get at Kinetta with a large bracelet or tied handkerchief just so you don't flash that big tourist sign around.
As a word of caution, on our way back from Athens we took the 2nd last train (aprox 9pm) and we were on the last car of the train. We ended up in a very dangerous situation when we were surrounded by a group of local, threatening, teenage boys, but were fortunate enough to avoid incident with some smart thinking. Overall we felt safe in Kinetta and surrounding area, as well as Athens, as long as you are smart you're doing and where you're going.

On of our last days we went to Agi Theodori, the little "fishing village" the next railway stop over from Kinetta....we don't recommend this. Maybe we didn't find the right places recommended to us, but there were no tourists and it didn't seem all that friendly. Korinthos is the next town over, which we had heard great things about, but did not get a chance to see.

Finally, Kinetta resort was a great way for us to see Greece, we spent a total 2 hrs on the beach and very little time on the resort, which was perfect. We recommend this resort to those looking for a way to get a taste of Greece...as long as you make great friends (like we did!) and plan on spending most of your time off the resort.

Dear Sir,

First of all we would like to thank you for your comments!

Reference to '"all inclusive" we have a lot of drinks such as whiskey, vodka, gin, rum, ouzo etc. like all the other Clubs.
We accept very often good reviews for the quality of our food because we have a wide variety of menus covering various cuisines (like Italian, International and of course the Greek cuisine).

We try to improve and to provide continuously the best possible services to our customers.

We hope to see you again in one of your future trips.

Kind regards,
Kinetta Beach

My wife and I recently spent a week at the Kinetta Beach Hotel late June 2013. The place is located in a very rural part of Greece on the Agean sea about an hour from Athens. The resort itself is "dated" looking like in its day ( the 70's - 80's) it was probably a nice place. It is well maintained and the rooms are more than adequate.
For vacationers, it lacks in 3 areas. First, location. It is literally in the middle of nowhere. There is a train station about a kilometer away which seems like an easy walk but, in 37 degree heat, it isn't that easy. Also, the road is a very busy one and there are no sidewalks to walk on. As you walk, it is like you are walking in a garbage dump as the street is badly littered.
Second - overwhelmingly French and catered to French. Signage not in English. Activities not in English. No BBC. in English??. Nothing against the French folk but the tour operator should mention this to people ahead of time!
Lastly and the most disturbing was the food - if you could call it that. YUK! Other than bread, cheese and fruit and vegetables, I did not find anything that I felt met minimum qualitystandards. It was all below minimum. Nothing was hot. Cold, greasy bacon with fried greasy cold cut meat that was starting to go off. Eggs were so dry they wouldnt even stick together like a scrambled egg should. Dinners were cold - overspiced - over cooked - and OVER RATED! With that said, becasue of the terrible location, we were held hostage to eating there unless we hop a train and get out of town.
The chair covers, table cloths and glassware and cutlury were embarrasingly filthy. it is like they have no concept of food handling what so ever. They do not hesitate serving totally rotted fruit with the good side up! Peaches rotted. Apples rotted, Apricots rotted, all to become a breakfast "smoothie" made by the manager in the morning in front of the hungry guests!
In closing, we are adventourous so we did hop trains and hire cabs by the day to not have to eat the food that we had already paid for!
In closing, reconsider and instead, travel an extra 20 kms and stay in a city called Loutraki. It is like stepping into heaven after seeing the Kinetta filth.
I hope this review helps you make an educated decison if you plan to visit Greece.

Room Tip: ask to stay in blue or green sections....newer.

My friend and I visited this resort in May and were so incredibly excited to be finally travelling to Greece. I have some nice and not so nice comments, so here goes!

The actual hotel staff was fantastic and our Airtransat rep was amazing. The Looke staff (animation team) only paid attention to you if you were a Transat France guest or a French speaking Canadian and it was causing quite a bit of animosity from the English only guests. I guess I understand that Transat France supplies the animation staff to accommodate their travelers but it is extremely unfortunate this is not communicated to the other guests, who are left feeling quite slighted and purposefully excluded. The resort should really being doing everything they can to make ALL guests feel welcomed, included and just as important as any other traveler. Warning: If you do not speak french, you will not be included in a single resort activity all week. Also, very important to ensure that your excursions will be offered in BOTH French and English.

The pools were beautiful and the beach was gorgeous! I really enjoyed the fact that the beach was stone and there were always available umbrellas and loungers. The "pool bar" consisted of a man, who was always talking on his cell phone, serving juice from a little blue cooler.This pool was also the activities and kids pool so it was always busy with activities etc. The second pool was dubbed the "zen" pool and is much quieter. (unless they are ripping up half of the deck around it....) This side of the resort does not have a bar... but the little blue cooler was a short walk away. hahaha.

The updated rooms were nice and I thought that the older style rooms gave the resort a nice rustic feel... but I did not have to actually live in one for a week. The maid staff was nice but our floors were not mopped nor was our toilet cleaned... They do not provide Do Not Disturb Signs and there are no clocks in your room. One would think this is a good idea...... until you are needing to get up early for an excursion or a 6 am bus back to the airport. A little worrisome after a few misunderstandings regarding wake up calls. The grounds were clean and the view from the rooms (or the roof top, if you can find the stairwells) were amazing.

The food was ok but I was truly hoping for authentic Greek food and wound up disappointed. We were in Greece and wanted GREEK food!! I did not want to feel like I was in some Italian, French or International cafeteria. I wanted to eat like I was in GREECE. The meal times were a little limiting but nothing to get really upset about. The "snack bar" was less than fabulous and it was difficult to find something decent to eat between meals.

Take advantage of cheap cab fare, train rides and available excursions. Walk up the street to the Souvenir shop, go a little further for amazing Gelato and definitely hit up the Pita Place!!

I feel bad writing so much negative feed back but it really has to be said. I truly enjoyed my vacation to Greece but my memories are not of the resort. Use it as a place to rest to your head, get off the resort and experience true Greece.

Kinetta All inclusive is definitely not the same as Caribbean All Inclusive so be sure to do your research and be prepared.

We would like to thank you for your comment.

Kindly note that we have Greek food really often but in order to have variety we need to have also different cuisines.

We hope to see you again in one of your future trips.

Kind Regards,

Kinetta Beach Resort & Spa
