The family-run Hotel Roseland looks more like a grand Mediterranean villa than a hotel.
The family-run Hotel Roseland has a real Mediterranean feel to it. Flowering gardens and a laid-back pool sit out back, overlooked by the arched balconies of the spacious rooms.
This property is hidden away in a quiet corner of Kalamaki, close to the sandy beach.

Not quite perfect
Just came back from a late-booked AI week with my son and stepdaughter. Arrived in the middle of a heatwave and the pizza , cakes, sandwiches on offer at 4pm were very welcome. Good selection of non-alcoholic drinks together with some decent lager-beer and white, red and rose wine ( none of which I tasted ). Giannis at the bar was always very friendly and dispensed the cocktails with no fuss and a smile. Reception were helpful and free aircon was most welcome. Wifi a bit pricey at 20 euros per device per week (30 euros for 2 devices ) - logging in constantly was a bind, presumably due to poor signal. Good selection of food on offer at all sittings and a good variation through the week. I tasted as many local dishes as possible and many were delicious. Sadly, my children weren't as adventurous, but they did enjoy the pizza and the hotdog sausages. I didn't sleep very comfortably on the sofa bed, but then I am large-framed. I could have commandeered one of the twin beds, but used my discretion to avoid arguments. Was woken early twice - once by a couple arguing rather loudly at 4am and then some teens returning from Lagana about 5am on another occasion. Room wasn't really designed for three so was cramped, but that was our choice. Nice verandah overlooking the pool. Shower was fixed and over a bath, which makes a welcome change from most accommodation I've stayed in on the Greek Islands. Water was hot whenever we used it -water pressure was surprisingly good too. Wardrobe and drawer space was limited as expected, but adequate for our purposes. If you get the chance, take the Shipwreck half-day trip and the Turtle Island trip. We were extremely fortunate to see a loggerhead turtle up close and personal for about half an hour on the latter trip. Made our holiday. I hadn't realised that the hotel was so close to the end of the runway, but surprisingly it didn't disturb my sleep. If I made a third trip to the island ( my first was in '88 ), it would more than likely be to Tsilivi, Argassi or Alykes. A little bit too close to Lagana for my liking.More

A great week away
We stayed here 11-18 July and have no complaints at all We arrived after 930pm (10 min transfer) but they had kept food on to allow us to eat The rooms were clean, air con free, food great (even for a vegi) pool area very clean Plenty of comfortable sun loungers We hired a jeep for 50€ for day and toured the island which was great, on the one overcast day we took a taxi 10€ to Zante Town and we walked the beach into Laganos Greek night at hotel was fun We would recommend this for family or friends More
Small Family Hotel
We stopped at the Roseland Hotel for a 10 day break consisting of three adults. Location The Roseland Hotel is situated in Kalamaki 6.7 km from Laganas and 5.4 km from Zakynthos town it's two neighbouring resorts. Both are accessible by taxi for around 10 euros, by bus for around 2 euros each or there is a fun train to Zakynthos town for around 6 euro return per person. The beach is a short 5 min walk from the hotel accessible though a small gateway at the rear of the hotel. There are some wonderful restaurants and supermarkets along the main road and although underneath the main flight path of the airport (10 mins from hotel) are hardly noticeable. Rooms The rooms although fairly small are clean and are swept/maintained by the cleaners every day. Towels and bed linen are changed every three days. There is a fridge, small safe (30 euro cost for 10 day stay), air conditioning, hairdryer and television. The rooms could benefit with a kettle and the bathrooms are in need of updating as the grouting was dirty, the grating overflowed when the bath was emptied and a few of the tiles were loose. Facilities The gardens are immaculately kept and contain a small children's play area, pool table, ping pong table lounging area and of course the main pool area. The pool is an adequate size and due to the Roseland being a small hotel you don't have to fight or sun loungers, although this didn't stop most guests getting up at the crack of dawn to secure their 'spot'. The dining area is split into three separate areas consisting of the main dining area an outside sun terrace and a sheltered seating area. Smoking is prohibited during meal times although this was blatantly ignored by some guests. There was also a bar area. Wifi was 20 euros for our ten day stay which was sometimes hit and miss and for one person only (you cannot use multiple devices at the same time. They also have a computer for guests but was out of order for the entire duration of our stay. Food/Drink Although basic there was a variety of choice for breakfast, lunch and dinner served by very efficient and polite staff. Soft drinks included lemonade, coke, orangeade, apple juice and lemon and lime available anytime. Alcoholic drinks included beer, white, rose and red wine also available anytime. Cocktails were available from 4pm onwards and were fantastic. Entertainment Entertainment is limited and tends to cater for the family/older holidaymakers than younger groups who tend to frequent the Laganas area more. Entertainment included a quiz night, bingo, Greek and Karaoke night. My only complaint was the drunken teenagers returning from the bars at 4,5 o'clock in the morning and waking all the other guests. Despite this we had a very enjoyable stay and holiday at the Roseland who provided a very courteous, helpful and professional service during our stay. I would recommend this hotel to families/older couples but advice younger guests to stay in Laganas.More
Went with 6 of my friends for our girls holiday. Hotel was just what we needed, €8 taxi into the strip for nights out but nice and peaceful during the day. Buffet style food was lovely and relatively varied and the selection of drinks at the bar were great, although it shut at 11. Glad we decided to stay here in Kalamaki instead of Laganas! More
Very friendly hotel
Just returned from 10 days at the roseland hotel very friendly family run hotel very clean, within a short distance walk from the main strip of kalamaki and the beach, the food was lovely with variety at all meals only down fall but didn't affect us was alcoholic drinks you could only get larger or wine during the day from pumps until 6 in the evening when the bar was open this didn't affect us but would be nice to be able to get a cocktail during the day, the entertainment wasn't upto much but again didn't affect us, the pool was a nice size with plenty of loungers and parasols, the receptionists were very friendly and helpful and went out of their way to help, the Waitresses and waiters were all very lovely and spent time to speak to you overall I would return to this hotel with out any doubt thankyou roseland for a very enjoyable holidayMore
