“This is it!!!”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Lovely new resort. Personnel are great and willing to help you and very friendly. Just a few teething problems need to be sorted I.e. no credit card facilities available upon checking out - we had to leave our credit card details. Wifi in room kept dropping out and television reception on most stations was not good. Also cleaning ladies were not replenishing our water and toiletries everyday. They were, however, very polite and apologetic when asked for these items. My husband and I stayed in the suite for 4 nights. Photos on the Internet are a true portrayal of what you get. It's really nice and a true 5 STAR (with the exception of a few minor points I made above). Breakfast consisted of a very good variety including hot and cold food. The location of the resort is great with only a short 10 minute walk from a huge range of cafes and eateries that Kalamata has to offer if you choose not to have dinner at the resort. We had dinner at the Resort and were pleasantly surprised at the quality and prices of our meal - our compliments to the staff and chef. The whole beach (paralia) of Kalamata is organized (chairs and umbrellas are free of charge with purchase of drinks and/or food). It truly was a pleasure to stay in this beautiful resort!!!

Room Tip: Choose a room with a sea view.

The hotel is shiny brand new and impressive. Lots of water features, pools and open spaces, great design. Rooms are chic, comfortable and really spacious. Great staff, helpful, patient and professional. Huge and fresh choices for breakfast and excellent upscale dinner at the outdoor restaurant all very well priced. Well done Horizon Blu, we will be visiting again soon.

Room Tip: Choose an upper floor room, will miss the small pool but will gain excellent views.

Brand new hotel ! Everybody's trying too hard to please you and doing a great job. Personnel helpfully and friendly . Very good breakfast . Lunch equally good. Fine pool area to relax and enjoy our coffee or drink . My 8 year old daughter was fascinated by the private pool our room had , not so big for adults but perfect and safe enough for kids .Honestly already planning my next visit with friends.
