We went for a wedding event summer 2012 and therefore we booked to stay there for the night. We used the spa and enjoyed it very very much. We drinked a coffee by the pool and promised to come back next summer with the kids. I wish they could make offers for the summer and for kids.

My son recently married in kalamata and the reception for 400 was held at the filoxenia ( July)
Any concerns we had prior to the wedding breakfast were completely unfounded as the service ,food and overall management proved outstanding.
The event started with a small reception at the hotel at 7. Pm culminating at 8 am in the morning!!
Memorable in every way and a great credit to the Greek catering industry given the amount of international negativity pointed at Greece.
Congratulation to all at the filoxenia and may 2013 prove successful.

Room Tip: Select a room on the 3 storey wing overlooking both the pool and sea.

No way this, by any standards, could be a 5* hotel. Very noisy, limited facilities, small packed swimming pool, no particularly great beach. Food is real disappointment, you are far better off if you eat at local tavernas. Rooms OK, but not particularly clean. Overall, if you do not expect anything near a 5star hotel you may be ok.

Having spent a month there for another summer vacation, I was amazed at the professionalism of the staff, which were new and remarkable. The new manager, Mr. Siokos, is trying to solve the problems of the past and while I was there, saw that he is striving to do so. The only complaint from many guests was the problem with the WiFi. The beach this year was for guests only, something which was not so last summer and the only renovation needed is the sun umbrellas and lounge chairs, which are very old and do not provide sun protection. Congratulations on a good come back and hope that next year, things will be even better.

We visited this hotel on June 2, staying for one night. Actually was a school excursion,during the HOLY sPIRIT weekend, so the hotel knew the exact number of participators. Our first impression was at the reception desk, which took some time to be completed. We then came to the lobby, for having lunch: The situation was far away than it was expected from a 5 star hotel. The buffet was very poor, just 2 salads and 5-6 orderveus and main dishes. The staff was consisted of 2-3 waiters, trying hard to serve us. They finally apologize for the big delay. Obviously, it wasn't their fault; We couldn't explain why such a famous and well known hotel traets with such a way. They knew about our visit. They knew about being a holiday, but they didn't have the necessary personell. What a pity for such a beatifoul hotel!

Really clean place with excellent facilities for a family holiday. The family room we had was spacious and cleaned on a daily basis. Swimming pool was great, big enough for the size of the hotel, we spent 4-5 hrs at the pool per day and it never felt crowded. Pool bar prices are OTT for what is on offer. Evening meal buffet a bit boring, but plenty of restaurants around. Breakfast very good, although two problems/issues, flies and smoking, although smoking was not allowed indoors, it was allowed at the covered restaurant area by the pool bar and the veranda which it is unacceptable really. They should not allow smoking at all during meal times.

Room Tip: excellent for families with young children, great value for money when you book early
