I stopped there for a night and I stayed one week due to the excellent service , beautiful place , and very professional hospitality.
I will book a month next year because my 5 years old son is still asking me to go again.

Thanks Dear Guest, for your kind words....We did simply our job and will continue, in the future, to have the same attitude, to all our guests. It is a tradition for the Greeks to believe trully to Philoxenia- loving taking care about foreigners -Guests. We are looking forward seeing him, in the newar future.....

Always think that it's better to write in english (I am french) as it impacts more people and the automatic translator does not always work to really express feelings. To summarize, we were looking for something to eat in Kalo Nero, we looked around and after looking at some touristic taverns with views on the beach (which knowing Greece quite well sometimes you can really get disappointed) we decided to push 200 meters more and we arrived at the Irida Best Western Hotel. As it was late we asked if it was possible to have something quick to eat: Costas and his wife usually prepare breakfasts for the hotel guests, but they actually said no problem and Elena prepared the best greek lunch ever whereas Costas was offering his wine and his philosophic thoughts at the same time. It was a true deep moment of relaxation, joy and happiness. We recommend very much that place for the owners, the location, and the food
As for the rooms, we have not seen them so we leave the guests to describe it

We are a family with 2 little children of 1 and 3 years old and we had made a reservation of a "superior apartment" for 9 nights (total amount 1000 euros reservation number in bookings #731609382# ). The first night, they put us in a semi-underground room for two persons with no private balcony. Instead in the entrance we had a yard with a table. So when we put the children to bed and wanted to be with my husband at last alone, we were obliged to be with all the hotels' guests who were passing by to go to their rooms. After this night we explained to the owner that it wasn t possible for us to stay there, and if he hadn' t a room with private balcony we wanted to leave. Then he showed us a room on the first floor and he told us that we could stay for three nights because he had some other people coming from the USA. We accepted and he told us that we ll see what he could do with the room. Finaly we stayed all the 8 nights there... but we saw that they were changing rooms to many people after one or two nights, and some complaints... They had a big problem with reservations handling…
Anyway the hotel belongs to the Best Western chain, but I think Best Western people never checked if this hotel fits their criteria. This is more a amateur family-runned "apartments to let" than a hotel. The bathroom is the tiniest bathroom I have ever seen in a hotel, I couldn t give a shower to my kids without taking an acrobatic position. The air conditioner was just my son's bed, so it was impossible to put it on without he gets cold.

The owner was too present, every morning at breakfast he was going to one table to the other to see if we had followed his advice to "explore" the area (he is very proud to be Messinian) and wanted to chat with everybody by sitting with them at their table. Some people maybe like this, but i m not a morning type...
Anyway, this hotel is soooo Overpriced that we were really chocked to pay this amount for this hotel. But unfortunately we reserved by internet and we couldn't cancel our reservation...
The only positive things were the homemade breakfast (of the super-anxious Irini who tried to manage everything at the same time), the playground (where the kids could play after 8 o clock because there are no trees to make any shadow) and the careta careta turtles' nests (which don t belong to the hotel of course...)

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 1st or 2nd floor (they have private balcony)

We Thank her very much because she found many positive points !!! We are very sorry about the psychical situation and the feelings of this guest. When she arrived she declared to us that she had lost her job-was a fired journalist from a big Greek newspaper. She had booked a Double Apartment in a low prepaid offer, so we could not make her any other discount. We try to do our best to have her and her family. a pleasant stay. But a Double Apartment is not so convenient for four people, for staying nine days inside August, even if the two are children!!! We understand that all the writing was from the feelings of a heartbroken , very sad, unhappy woman !!! But unfortunately we have not the power to solve all the social problems.

We have stayed 2 beautiful weeks in this hotel. Hotel is conveniently located near the Kalo Nero village. From this place it’s easy by car to travel to any part of the Peloponnesus. The restaurants and shop as well as the beach are walking distance from the hotel. The hotel is run by a very nice family (Kostas, Irina and their 2 children). Employed stuff is also there. They manage to do it in the professional way adding their soul in what they are doing. I agree with some of the comments saying is that you feel like you are visiting your old friends. They manage to give the needed attention to each guest advising on any subject (what places to visit, how to cook the pie) etc. – you can always see them around. If you need help – they are there to assist). Our room (301) was large enough with all you need: kitchen corner with microwave, coffee maker, fridge etc. Bed was fantastic!) Flat TV, radio - I will not enumerate all but all was there according to Best Western chain standards and more. For women - hair dryer is there ) Cleaning of the rooms was done each day in the time convenient for us. Breakfast – just fantastic. Each day different and actually homemade as Irina (owner ) is herself involved in the process за cooking. Take your chance to try pies she is cooking – that is something I must say! The whole atmosphere is very relaxing and quiet. Parking is located just in front of the hotel (you can see it on the pictures). Wi-Fi internet is there – perfect connection in our room (Skype video calling, e-mail etc. working fine). Nice playground for the children. And once again – this is a small family hotel for the quiet and relaxing holiday also with children – if that is what you are looking for – you will not be disappointed! Manage your expectations in the correct way and if you have questions or doubts – just ask the owners as we did by e-mail or skype. You can also ask us – will be more than glad to answer your questions (family@murmuridis.ru). Mikhail and Jane Murmuridis (Moscow, Russia). Here you can find 2 panoramas of the hotel and the beach where we usually went: http://occipital.com/user/e1db-83659/mikhail-rainman

Room Tip: Some rooms are on the ground floor. So no stairs there.

We stay for 3 wonderful days at Irida resort in Kalo Nero, Northwestern part of Messinia. The location of the hotel was excellent, is just across an endless sandy beach. It was very quiet and peaceful a great place for relaxation.

The hotel has a huge garden surrounded by tall pines and colourful rose bushes. The apartment we stayed in was spacious, beautifully decorated with lots of lovely touches, exceptionally clean and the kitchen was fully equipped. Breakfast at Irida was great. A wide selection of pastries, coffee, juices, yogurt and delicious omelettes.

Kostas the owner/manager and his wife Rena were very friendly and very hospitable. Rena was responsible for the beautiful room décor and for the delicious breakfast. Kostas gave us excellent recommendations for very interesting places to visit around the area.

So, if you look for a great location for your vacations, a decent, comfort, elegance and great value for money place to stay, look no further.
We will be back soon…

A road trip aroud the Northwestern part of Messinia took us to the beach of Kalo Nero in search for a decent place to stay for a couple of nights and soak up the sun and salty breeze of the Ionian Sea. Past the beach bars and the tavernas along the beach road we found Irida Resort a perfect place for our stop over.

We were welcomed by the friendly and very hospitable couple of Kostas and Rena, the masterminds of this cosy resort. Both perfectionists each on heir own field, they have combined their efforts to provide the guest with a seamless staying experience.

All the building complex and the huge garden were very well maintained and the apartment we stayed in took me by surprise first of all by the spotless cleanliness and freshness that you felt as soon as you entered. Rena's touch was obvious with the embroidered pillow cases and the heavy curtains which gave the whole apartment an air of class and in the kitchen as well which had everything required to prepare from a cup of coffee to a full meal of one of Rena;s secret recipes if you beg hard enough to share one with you! Kostas will help you choose the wine (trust him...!) and inform you on all the beautiful sights surrounding Irida Resort.

From ancient sites of archaiological interest to places of natural beauty, Irida Resort can be the base for the exploration of this very interesting part of the Peloponnese From relaxed suntaning and swimming in the Ionian Sea at the beautiful sandy beach in front of Irida Resort to cycling along the beach road or walking on the deserted railroad tracks to more remote beach areas our stay was most fullfilling.

Already booked for August...
See you there...

Having stayed at Irida resort for 4 nights at the suite with a view to the sea and having read all the comments here we expected something that would be worth of 150euros per night that we paid.
The suite we stayed in was expected to have a nice view at the sea, instead there was a view to the valley and a small edge of the coastline which was ok but certainly it wasn't what we had paid for.
However, that wasn't the most important disadvantage of the room. We were surprised to discover that the bed was not at all comfortable, it was rather old, low and the mattress curved to the center.
Apart from that, the air-condition was literally over our feet opposite the bed, which could give us two choices: either get a cold from the A/C blowing all over us or suffer from the heat as we should turn it off to avoid a bad flu.
We couldn't leave the window open either because the screen was torn and the mosquitoes would certainly attack the room.
Finally, if you are over 1.90cm tall and over 85kilos you should think twice before getting into the tiny bathroom, which would let you just a little space to move around and make your life difficult.
However, I should mention that the breakfast was decent and the service sufficient.

All in all, I wouldn't give more than 70-80 euros per night for that bedroom and I would appreciate it if I knew it before making the reservation.

According to our investigations we made : At our records there is no booking trough any channel for 4 days at August 2011 for Suite with Sea View, with rent 150 Euros per day. (She writes: I would appreciate it if I knew it before making the reservation.)
She never answer to our email to clarify about her stay details (4 nts X 150E in Suite SV). She assumes things which they could happen, does not describe real facts: i.e , if you are over 1.90cm ,,,,,you should think...... the mosquitoes would attack.....which could give us two choices: either get a cold from the A/C blowing all over us or suffer from the heat as we should turn it off to avoid a bad flu...a view to the valley...There is no valley near our hotel.
There is not any report about these fantastic scenarios to our reception. All the above things are far from any truth, completely fake. Please do your own appropriate actions.
