We stayed for a week in October in a superior sea view room. On the first floor with a fabulous balcony and view directly out to sea over the pool. (The key decision in the superior rooms is whether you want a private plunge pool on the ground floor - adjacent to the main pool, or more private with a balcony and better view on the first floor).

Rooms are large and clean with well appointed bathroom & nice toiletries. As has been said elsewhere if a good hairdryer is important - bring one with you! The same might be said if you want nice coffee first thing in the morning in your room bring a travel coffee machine rather that instant coffee. Both these minor niggles could be resolved easily and are a true mark of a 5 star hotel (which Horizon Blu deserves to be).

The only other things that compromised that status were the work going on each day at the hotel and the limited restaurant menu in the evening but we do recognise that we were here out of the main season.

We used the well equipped and staffed spa which is equally delightful.

Overall a relaxing week and the staff were attentive and friendly.

We had a great stay at this modern 4 year old hotel. Situated on the water front, all rooms have sea view and some rooms have there own private pool! The property had 2-3 outdoor pools, an indoor door and spa. Great poolside bar and restaurant. The room was nice? Modern and had a big veranda. Wifi was great and free and so was the parking.
My only disappointment was the built in hairdryer! Useless! It's like drying your hair with a vacuum! Very annoying, they need to provide guests with individual modern hairdryers.

The resort is relatively new (2014) and is located right across from the Kalamata boardwalk, with easy access to the sea (and with its own swimming pool, of course). Some of the rooms have their own private swimming pools. The breakfast was a bit lacking for a 5-star restaurant - the selection can be much nicer. But overall the staff is extremely helpful, and the rooms are nice and modern. 4 out of 5 stars as it is overpriced for its location in the south of Peloponnese but with a relative lack of similar resorts in this part of Greece, would probably stay here again if given a choice. Excellent dinner at the hotel restaurant - delicious choices such as watermelon with goat cheese, or risotto with squid ink.

This was olur first trip to Kalamata and we were looking for a place to rest and enjoy. The breakfast wAs perfect, the room we stayed was perfect, room services, beach and bar services were also great. If we ever go back to Kalamata this will be the place for us again. Thanks for everything.

I have stayed at a few hotels in Kalamata over the last two years and I can easily say this is the best hotel along the strip. I think the communication and service from the staff have improved significantly from my last trip last year and the cleanliness and attention to detail is to be commended.

I had a pool room which was quite expensive but I did book late for Aug 2017, there were better deals to be had if I would have booked earlier in the year. The room was very homely, with a bath and a shower with high quality toiletries. An abundance of towels and bedding was available; with a mini fridge and flat screen tv.

A special mention has to be raised for the bed, which was extremely soft and comfortable, an absolute joy to pass out on every evening. When I say extremely comfortable, “I mean very very soft topper and pillows” this maybe an issue for some guest?

Having your own personal plunge pool is a luxury everyone should experience at least once, it’s just so nice to cool down in a pool 5 steps away from your bed – the height of indulgence.

Salmon burger, Beef/bacon burger, Any salad, The fruit cocktail, Chocolate soufflé & ice cream, A la Carte Menu, Italian night, just to list a few of the superb offerings from the pretty limited menu but fabulously tasty, and that’s not including the Greek dishes which are obviously fantastic. In fact everywhere we sat down to eat in Kalamata, the food was incredible.

The views from all the venues’ we visited are also breath taking, whether you’re on the beach looking up, or in the mountains looking down into the bay.

On the whole, Kalamata is where the Greek people go on holiday, and if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for me and you too…

Room tip: The private pool rooms are pricey but very nice...
