We stayed at the Venus in July and booked directly through the hotel, i would definately recommend this option to any future travellers, as you get the benefit of having breakfast, the fridge, air con and a loyalty card giving you 10% off all food and drinks. We booked our flights earlier in the year through Thomson, if you can, book early as the prices had nearly doubled when we looked again in May/June time.
The hotel itself was great, all the staff made us feel welcome (especially Barbara who constantly had us in giggles) but everybody right from the cleaning staff to Nick himself. Our room was a good size, very comfortable and clean and fresh towels were provided daily. We stayed for the BBQ night which was very tasty and also the pub quiz, lots of fun.
We only stayed around the pool once or twice as we do prefer the beach but everything was great, we frequently would have lunch at the hotel or a late breakfast and i couldn't fault the food, especially liked the greek sausage! The breakfast at the hotel was very good although after a 2 week stay did get a little repetitive.
The island itself is lovely and very peaceful, we went on several excursions and booked these direct with organisers on the main strip. 2 fantastic restaurants are the Olive Tree (their house Rose wine was lovely) and Heaven's Kitchen (i think that was the name), we felt everywhere was reasonably priced.
A fantastic stay in Kalamaki and at the Venus, we will definately be back in the near future.
