We (a party of 9, with 3 kids) have arrived in Kalami on Sunday, August 16, 2009. We had reserved a beach front villa and, based on photos and descriptions, I have to admit, expectations were pretty high.
Nonetheless, we had been in rented villas before and we knew we shouldn't expect much in terms of basic utensils.
Upon arrival, we have been greeted by friendly staff, who provided us with basic information and apartment keys.
The villa is nice and confortable, however is missing the basic maintenance material, salt, sugar, soap, and so on. I consider this very upsetting, as I am sure all the guests are forced to buy new stuff all the times. Talking to the management / staff is not easy at all, as we have a cell phone number but most of the times they don't pick up or the line is busy.
As I said, everything else is nice and cool. Nice furniture, nice swimming pool, literally 150 meters from the sea.
Our stay has just started, so I will make sure to keep everybody posted if there are substantial improvements during our stay.
I will also post some photos of the location and the villa.
