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.
