The Roseland looks more like a grand Mediterranean villa than a hotel. A laid-back pool sits out back, overlooked by the arched balconies of the spacious rooms. It's all tucked away in a quiet corner of Kalamaki, close to the sandy beach.
This family-run hotel has a real Mediterranean feel to it. Spanish-style arches shade white-painted balconies, and the gardens are flecked with colourful plants. The hub of the hotel is the freshwater swimming pool, which has a separate shallow area for children. Bordering the pool is a tiled sun terrace, and tucked into a quiet corner is an outdoor whirlpool bath.
Rooms are spacious and simply decorated with light-grey tiled floors and whitewashed walls. All rooms have balconies that overlook the gardens or the pool.
A breakfast buffet is laid on each morning in the main restaurant, and includes fresh fruit, yoghurts, breads and cheeses, as well as a cooked breakfast. A poolside bar serves drinks and snacks during the day, while the evening à la carte menu features Greek favourites as well as international dishes.
Kalamaki Beach is an easy 5-minute walk away, and the sands here are home to nesting loggerhead turtles. The bars and tavernas in Kalamaki’s centre are also around 5 minutes’ walk away.

Just returned from our 3rd and now will be our last visit. A great shame it is to be an all inclusive hotel. Everything as before was perfect. Staff cleanliness etc we have always felt at home there. We will return to Kalimaki but at a different hotel.More
End of an era indeed.
We have been coming to The Roseland virtually every year since 2006 and have to say that for me, this has ranked as the nicest hotel on the planet. We are coming here again later this year, and regrettably I believe this will be our final stay here, due to the decision they will be completely all inclusive next year. I genuinely hope that this does work well for the owners of The Roseland, but due to the increased cost of coming here next year (Thompsons quoted Â£3000) for the 4 of us for the 2 weeks, I just think it is just a wee bit too much.More

Great little hotel if your level of expectations are right
Weâve stayed at the Hotel Roseland six times over the last 12 or so years, during our twenties and early thirties. Generally if weâve not been looking to go further afield or havenât fancied exploring somewhere new, itâs been a default option for a guaranteed cheap relaxing week. Itâs a lovely small, quiet, friendly hotel. Itâs fairly typical basic Greek accommodation, but is clean, welcoming and the food good â breakfast is perfectly acceptable, lunches on the terrace are great and well-priced, as are drinks at the bar. Great cocktails in the evenings, especially good value during happy hour. Staff are so friendly and we know many of them now from our return visits. The fact weâve returned so many times is testament to how much weâve enjoyed our times here. The bar area doesnât have a huge amount of atmosphere or character in the evenings, so we always tended to have a drink in it before going out for dinner and elsewhere, and then maybe another on our return at the end of the evening. We like eating out at different places each evening anyway, so the B&B set-up and the short walk to Kalamaki where there are plenty of great places to eat is ideal for this. The pool area is lovely and is plenty of sunbeds always available. There seems to be a good mix of people who go there; couples of all ages, quite a few generations of the same family, the odd smaller sized group of girls who want to go Lagana a few nights but not all, to young families with toddlers. Luckily weâve never encountered any rowdy groups of lads, they seem to stay away thankfully. Everyone seems to fit in well and enjoy a relaxing week in the sun. Thereâs plane noise as many people mention, though itâs really not an issue, apart from Monday mornings when they seem to start much earlier than any other day and wake you up. Our only other negative comments would be that the bathrooms really are looking pretty tired now and need a revamp, and charging for aircon and to use the fridge also seems a little tight in this day in age. Weâve really enjoyed our visits to the Rosland over the years, but times change and so do we. We are a young family now and thereâs more appropriate/better suited places out there for us. We are also aware the hotel is going to be all-inclusive next year which isnât our thing, so I suspect weâve visited for the last time. Thank you for the good times Hotel Roseland and the wonderful memories, we wish you well.More
A typical Greek hotel
I stayed here with my Mum last August for a week and we were happy with the accommodation in general. Be wary if you need wheelchair access though as I don't recall seeing a ramp! The hotel is in a quiet area and on a dead end road so there is no traffic to worry about. There is a car park if you rent a vehicle. When we arrived we were shown a room that was on the ground floor by the pool. We didn't really want to be that close so we asked if it was possible to move and they were very accommodating, giving us a room on the top floor that looked out to the side of the hotel. The only moan I'd say was the size of the bathroom (small) and the smell that came from the bathroom drain every so often wasn't great. The room itself was fine. It was cleaned every day. The pool is a good size and there were enough sun beds to go round. The pool bar is reasonably priced and there are a good selection of drinks. We spent most of our time away from the hotel-the walk to the beach is about 10 minutes when you use the short cut (we didn't find out about this until a few days in so we were going a longer way round - we did get to know the area though lol). The breakfast was nothing to write home about; eggs, toast, bacon, cereal, tea/coffee/juice and other bits and bobs. If you get bored of the hotel breakfast just wander up to the strip-it's cheap enough to do this every day really. The restaurant did do dinner but we didn't eat there so I can't comment about that. I put 'no wifi' but you could use the hotel wifi in the lobby if you needed to for a small charge. Overall we were happy! I would stay here again if I went to Kalamaki again.More

End of an era!
We have stayed here many times over the last 10 years and in that time met many people of like mind who found this hotel ticked all the right boxes. It is very clean, not too big, has friendly and helpful staff and is not overrun with children making it a very relaxing place to be. Unfortunately, next year as the hotel is going down the " all inclusive" road we and many of the friends we have made at the Roseland will be seeking an alternative as this hotel will appeal to a different market altogether. Thank you Roseland for many great holidays and thank you to the many returning guests who have become friends over the years!More
