Reviewed 30 October 2017

The hotel consist of a main building close to the road and the beach. It has rooms, the reception, the massage center and the restaurant. We had a room in one of the villas (situated behind the conference center) with a small balcony from where we could see the ocean and the mountains surrounding Kalamata.

The people in the reception are friendly and helpful. We had some problems with the safe a couple of times and they solved it relatively fast.

Our 'double room garden villa' was a regular size room. The bed was comfortable and we slept well. There was a closet with relatively much space, but there were very few hangers for the clothes. There was a small safe in the closet. The air-condition worked well. There was also a small fridge with a freezer which worked very well.
The cleaning of the room was done every day, however some of the cleaners did a better job then others.

There is a pool in the conference center with very good sun beds. We only used it one day when the wind was heavy on the beach. The rest of the days we used the free beds on the beach. The beach has some pebbles so maybe swimming shoes are nice to bring along.

The breakfast is good. It was not very varied, but ok. Not all types of bread were equally tasty, but try some of the types and you will find your favorite. The people working in the restaurant could be a bit more smiling and why not say welcome and good morning when the guests are arriving.

Elite City resort is situated on the border between Kalamata and Verga. It is a 4 km walk to the Kalamata Marina restaurants. The bus is stopping right outside the main building if you think it is too far. The bus leaves every 15 minutes during working days (every 20 minutes during the weekend) and it goes all the way to the Kalamata central square. The price is 1,30€ per person one way.

There is plenty of parking for cars at the hotel.

The main tourist season was over when we visited so quite a few neighboring restaurants along the ocean road had partly closed. The nearest supermarket is Lidl.
You will find it a 10 minutes walk from the hotel Ask in the reception for more information about the fastest way.

Room Tip: We stayed in 504. It was a good room, but a little noise from the neighbors roosters in the morning

The hotel's location is really good and is easy to get around Kalamata, but with respect to the rooms, the service and the breakfast I found it very average.
Rooms lack any character, without any decoration, but with very basic furniture. In addition, the linen needs to be renewed and especially the towels.
The breakfast was ok, but many products were not fresh and of good quality.

I liked the fact that there is plenty of parking and a very good playground for the children. Also yamas bistro was really good.

This hotel is in an excellent location and is almost all year round full. Weddings, corporate and political events chose this place due to its size; I am not sure about the other reasons.
It desperately needs renovation if they would like to stay top in the rank. The bathroom top, the furniture, the linen, the air conditioner and the fridge are some of the priorities ...
There must be understaffed as most of them seemed to me tired and stressed, although they were trying hard to serve.
Huge acreage well maintained.
I do not know about the prices since I was offered the hospitality.

I stayed at this hotel for one night . I was in the main building . The room needs redecoration and painting in the walls .
The bathroom was very small which is difficult for a person who has some kilos more .
Nevertheless the meeting room is very nice and the hotel staff incredible polite .

My wife and I stayed here with my parents in one of the 2 bedroom villas that was offered onsite in early August/17 for 2 nights. The room was very spacious. 2 storeys, with 2 seperate air condition units. Only one bathroom, but it was quite comfortable for 4 people, complete with a large balcony, where we could hang our wet clothes and towels after hitting the beach.

The facility is great. It has private access to the beach, complete with lounge chairs for its residents. A large pool area, and comfortable pool area, with a full bar... Although, service is a bit slow... It's Greece, so I won't hold that against the them... It's part of the culture. The place has an arcade area, restaurant, recreational facility, and breakfast area overlooking the beach. Everything except a gym? But it does have enough to keep you busy and satisfied throughout your stay. Great accommodations.

This hotel is on the main stretch of beach in Kalamata, however it's on one of the far ends, away from most of the night life which is still only about a 15-20 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel itself, is a bit quiet at night. But Ideal, for families who want to get away from the noise, and hustle and bustle of downtown Kalamata... as people tend to stay out quite late/early here.

Still, this hotel is in a very good location, and only a 5-10 minute drive from some of the great restaurants/bars on the mountain beside Kalamata, that overlook the city, with some incredible views. Our personal favourite was Kastraki... Great restaurant, with excellent ambiance and scenery.

I would highly recommend this hotel... especially for families! But for anyone that wants to have a comfortable stay, with adequate service, and great amenities, in an ideal location.

After leaving an absolutely awful 5star hotel after one miserable night, our agent talked us into making the long drive from mid Lefkada to Kalamata. We were exhausted,hungry and would be late for dinner buffet so called to ask if possible to save some food for our family of four. When we arrived they allowed us to order wonderful food from the alacarte menu, with dessert, wine and beer included. Great, young, enthusiastic staff and as the standard 2story family room was not available for our first night, we were offered a huge family suite with private pool at no extra charge. WOW. All buffet meals were fabulous with quality choices showcasing local cuisine and produce. Beach wonderful, hotel pool huge and impressive. We wish we could stay longer. I reccomend every family should stay at this hotel and my husband would like to arrange a conference there for the international company he works for.
