Lovely hotel very well cared for
Stayed here in October/November 2016. Hotel really lovely and the room was lovely and beautifully clean and kept well. The food was really good most of the time and occasionally really excellent and occasionally not quite so good. The a-la-carte restaurant was actually, although under cover, open to the elements and cold to eat in even though there were some heaters about and also the food served was scant in portion and poor in options. The fancy eaterie along the road, hailed as the culinaireum was I felt really not at all in any way special either in food or ambiance and indeed you almost felt you were holding up the staff if you were still eating after barely 9pm, or even before 9pm, they would keep peeping round to see if you were finished and they could get you out and they could close up. We would actually have been much better off in the buffet every night and where once a week they put on a rather special Managers Night. The pool was not warm enough to go into and the Jacuzzi or whirlpool or whatever you might call it which I had looked forward to using was nothing special and was on some kind of system where it came on for 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off, no button to press to activate the bubbles. It was a case of going in and hoping it was nearly time for it to come on. Also one really large gripe for me was that at this jacuzzi the was NO handrail to assist getting in and out and it was a pretty steep step down or up and not at all too safe to attempt getting into or out of.especially if you were older or less able as some guests were. The island was lovely and great walks were available and not necessarily too strenuous and it was very easy to take the public ferry to Dubrovnik or some of the other islands nearby where the ferry also called in. The Wine, now there was a gripe, both white and red was pretty awful and only the prosecco was at all quaffable. I i cannot htink why hotels doing all inclusive have to give out such rubbish wine, it is insulting to the guests. The rest of the drink on offer was OK even quite good but at the same time nothing special. The staff were all really lovely and very helpful and always cheery and smiling and the staff at reception were lovely and did all the possibly could to help the guests. It is definately a hotel worth going to but perhaps when it is really warm as it does not have enough room to accommodate all the guests in a warm environment if the weather is not too good as although you can get undercover and out of the rain it was still cool or cold to sit around in the hotel where the bar and entertainment was and only the games room was truly inside and warm. All in all we did have a really nice holiday and all Thomson staff were great and I would return but the island is so small we probably will not returnMore
We had a great holiday for my 30th. Food was great, hotel was lovely and the staff were really helpful and friendly. All in all a wonderful place but all inclusive holidays are not for us. No regrets though.More
Magical, mystical & marvellous - The perfect romantic retreat.
I have travelled to many beautiful places but this was to be my ultimate holiday with my boyfriend in August of last year. Sadly I found out on my return that he had been cheating on me for weeks prior to us going away. I would desperately love to return one day to dispel the bittersweet memories I now have of Kalamota and replace them with new ones as it hurts me to remember the idyllic time we had there. I can't recommend it enough and am envious of anyone staying in this beautiful hotel in its stunning location. The staff were wonderful and service was exceptional. I will return when I have saved my pennies and hopefully found someone new to share it with.More

We stayed at this hotel for the second time in August 2016. We had a calm crossing over to the island (last year we arrived in a big storm), we didn't have to wait long for the transfer although there were people on the boat who had had to wait for us to arrive for 1.5 hours! We had a partial sea view room on the top floor (which I had emailed to ask for). The room is average size but the balconies are extremely tiny, barely room for two chairs. There was one room at the bottom of the stairs to our block that faced back of hotel that literally had their terrace at the bottom of the stairs, think I've read a review about it on here, avoid this it was awful. Everyone could see right into the bedroom every time we left the block. Think that this is the only room like that though. Prior to arriving we had received an email from Thompson advising that gents had to wear long trousers for dinner, on our last visit tailored shorts were acceptable, so I emailed hotel to check. I was advised that tailored shorts would be acceptable so my husband brought these with him for the evening. On arrival the first night the manager advised that these would not be acceptable even though we had the email stating that it was! Anyway the upshot is he had to buy two pairs of long trousers from the hotel shop. It seemed it was ok to wear scruffy tracksuit bottoms or jeans though. The hotel management/Thompson rep Jake were very apologetic and did their best to make amends but I thought it best to warn people before they go. Anyway we had another wonderful holiday here, the housekeeping had improved since our last visit. Beautiful views from restaurant while eating delicious food is one of the best bits about the hotel. We went to the wine pairing evening and the five course dinner at the al la carte restaurant in the bay which is a supplement but I think worth it, although the buffet restaurant is still my favourite probably because of the views. If there weren't so many other places to see in the world we wouldn't hesitate to go back and maybe will again one day.More
Calm times in Kalamota
We visited Kalamota during October 2016. We stayed for a week on an all inclusive package booked at the last minute through Thomson. It was our first experience of an all inclusive holiday and was a very positive experience. The holiday proved to be one of the most relaxing breaks we have experienced for a number of years. Being an adults only resort probably helped . On arrival at the island we were immediately impressed by the peace and quiet as well as by the stunning scenery. The location of the hotel was picturesque with a private sandy beach at the front whilst being surrounded by mature pine forests. The island is small enough to walk around easily with many way marked pathways showing various routes. We met a number of locals during our walks and all of them proved to be friendly and helpful. The hotel accommodation is spread out in eight lodges on the hillside overlooking the bay. The hill slopes could be problematical for anyone with mobility issues though. Apart from that geographical issue the hotel is well planned and managed. We had a ground floor room in lodge three. The room was of adequate size for a week and was suitably equipped. The bathroom was spacious. We had our own terrace with appropriate furniture for our stay. The room was cleaned every day and the free mini bar was restocked on a daily basis too. The air conditioning and heating worked well. The hotel facilities included two restaurants, a pool, a small gym and spa as well as sun terraces and a botanic garden planted with local plants and shrubs. There was some kind of entertainment each evening centered upon the cocktail bar. There were sports areas available for the active minded visitors as well as an indoor games room for the less active people.The nearby naturist beach did not seem to attract many people though. Maybe it was a little cold at the end of the season and the thunderstorms which occurred twice during our stay may have put some people off. The food was excellent with lots of choice being available at every meal. It was possible to spend all of your time eating or drinking. Food quality and quantity were impressive. The bars were well stocked. All hotel staff were polite and helpful. A beautiful hotel in an ideal setting. Well worth every penny. A perfect location for a calming relaxing holiday. I would recommend Kalamota without reservation.More
