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.

The hotel is very closer from Kalamaki Beach. The rooms are very clean,everyday they come in your room to change everything and do the cleaning. The hotel has a big pool too and restaurant. We had only breakfast and the food was very good (eggs,bacon,tomatoes,chees,milk,tea,coffee,cakes and fruits). The hotel is very closer from Laganas too. is a good location because you can go anywhere if you have your car or if you rent one. We were with the personal car and from the first day in Kalamaki we rented an ATV for 2 days (70 euro). We did the tour from the island too. First we rented a boat for 5 hours and after that we decided to try the tour of the island with the pirate boat. So we went at the agency and there a good guy gave us the tickets for 2persons with 44 euro. With the pirate boat was aglomerate and a lot of noise. So,is better to rent your own boat than to go with that big boats with many people. In conclusion: excellent holidays! I recommend the hotel,was great for 10 days!More

Needs to improve
We stayed here in 2008 and really liked the hotel but not as good now. Same breakfast every day sausage,egg,baked beans,toast ,cold meats,cheese and cereals all ok but something different would have been good. We never ate in the hotel in the evening as there is so much choice in Kalamaki. There was no entertainment in the bar in the evening and we found the bar man unfriendly he was more interested in the people who drank more than we did. Or room was clean and tidy but the walls are very thin and you could here everything that went on in the bathroom next door.If we go back to the islands we wont be going back to the Roseland.More
Great week at the Roseland - Zante is beautiful!
Roseland is a great hotel. Pretty simple, but we are talking about a cheaper hotel, on a Greek Island. The staff are so friendly, and you can see they work hard. The rooms are basic, but very clean, comfortable and a decent size. The grounds and pool are clean, well looked after, loads of sunbeds and no competition for them in the morning. Breakfast was good, eggs, cereal, meat and cheese, fruit and yoghurt each morning. We ate lunch at the pool bar once too and were impressed with the prices and portion size. Short walk into town, with no traffic noise, short walk to the beach (ask for the shortcut) One thing I would say is that I don't expect to pay to use a safety deposit box on my holiday. I understand that air-con and a fridge may be an additional charge, but I think safes should be included as standard. This is the reason I am giving 4 out of 5. We also found the charge for wifi (that wasn't very good!) was way too expensive - â¬3 for 30mins... 15 of it didn't connect! I think if this hotel is going to turn into an All Inclusive (as return guests mention on TA) i feel the rooms, especially the bathrooms, require major updates, as well as the wifi issue. It's a shame, I'm not sure why people would want to go AI in Europe when there are such great restaurants in all the towns, and it continues to support the local economy. - Kalamaki Beach is gorgeous, not too busy, sunbeds, shallow clear waters, pedalos and a great lunch spot - Kalamaki Beach Taverna - have the prawns! - Zante itself is beautiful. We took the Shipwreck and Caves tour with Nefis Travel - couldn't recommend enough and will write a separate review. - We walked along the beach to near Agios Solsis, and took a taxi boat to Turtle Island (and spotted a turtle!!!!) for â¬12 for 2 hrs - We hired a quad bike and explored the Vasilikos peninsular, enjoying lunch at Banana Beach and a late afternoon cocktail at Mimosa Bar - We wandered into Laganas.... only to wander swiftly out, we are only 30 but it felt like being out on GCSE Results Day! Beach is pretty gross up there too! - Cameo Island is stunning both day and night - Restaurants - Pandesia Restaurant, Merlis, Olive Tree, Zakanthi Restaurant We found Kalamaki very quiet, I'm sure with the news coming over from Greece is putting off people travelling - we didn't have a single problem whilst there, everyone is in good spirits, and do not seem to be affected on the surface. Go! It's beautiful!More
Excellent roseland hotel
This hotel was brilliant from the minute we walked in the door we felt very welcomed. We went to reception to get our key and was told the room was on the ground floor which i was a little concerned reading other reviews but not a bit of it the room was spotlessly clean and smelt very fresh.The first night when we went into the restaurant for our evening meal we were told by the waitress we could choose anything off the menu well what a difficult job that was as there were 30 starters and 57 main courses to choose from and for the fortnight we were there the food was just excellent a special mention must go to the waitress who i think was called bibi who was fantastic always intrested in what you had done and offering some advice on where to visit but not in an intrusive way becuase her intrest was very genuine anyway on to the breakfast this was just as good as the evening meal.There was bacon,eggs,sausage, beans, toast,cold meat,cheese,toast,cerials,fruit and drinks the hotel is quite small but only a short walk away from the beach which was nice we even managed to swim with the turtles whilst we were there also it was only a five minute walk from the main strip for shopping etc now the bad news i would have already booked this hotel for next year but unfortunately the hotel is going all inclusive which does not suit our needs .I feel it might be a help if you are going to hire a car we went to most of the car hire firm's along the strip and was quoted 60 euros for 2 days so decided to go with the nearest which was eurohire but next day the price had gone up over 15 per cent with which we promptly left and went over the road and managed to get one for the 60 euros originally quoted .So overall a brilliant hotel, resort and country can not wait to returnMore

Had a week long stay here. The staff were actually very friendly and helpful. However our room was very damp and everything is an extra charge. â¬20 for safe, â¬20 for AC, â¬20 for fridge and â¬20 wifi. But on a good note the place was kept clean. Grounds were fine but nothing special.More
