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.
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.
These twin rooms are bright and understated. There's a patio door which leads out to your balcony providing some extra outside space. Air-conditioning* is available between May and October and you'll also be able to hire a fridge locally. It's also possible to request a double bed although this may not be guaranteed.
The rooms are clean and tidy, average size and the beds are the normal Greek hard to harder on the comfort scale.
The food was ok, we did eat here and gave it a good go but was really glad we went s/c. You get what you pay for so no complaints.
The Main Street provided very, very good eating, not a bad, stay clear warning to be informed about, but did fall in love with a place just off the high street called Escape.
Back to the hotel.
The Roseland is very popular with returning customers who seem to like their seats around the bar, the same seats, every night.
No worries really on that score, we much preferred to retire back to the room for a few sniffters after a meal on the street, we did try to play a little music, but that was knocked on the head by the early to bed, early to rise brigade next door.
On the whole the hotel was ok.
As all the repeat reviews state this hotel will be a/I this year, ok by us because we will not be returning, not out of spite, we just found another hotel for this May, just hope the bar seat huggers and the early to bed brigade don't follow suit.
Support the local trade, get out and explore, we did last year and boy did we enjoy Zante.
Kalamaki is a brilliant place, beach, tavernas, car hire and horse riding right on your doorstep, what more do you want.More
Very nice hotel. Clean and fresh. Friendly staff. Only a five minute walk to the shops, restaurants and beach. Only downside is the airport is only metres away. Great seeing them fly over but not when you are trying to sleep.
Good sized double rooms with ensuite. Walk on balcony with insect proof sliding doors. Bare in mind the charges for the air con and use of the fridge. We managed without the air con so not to bothered. The fridge lock was broken so we sneakily used it... Sorry.
Good sized pool and surrounding grounds. Daytime snack bar with an evening restaurant and bar. We paid for all inclusive which we kind of regretted because we did not experience the local town however the food was delicious with a wide selection of dishes. Bar had a great selection of cocktails which I highly recommend trying.
Go on its worth a visit.More

From checking in to checking out was 100% faultless ... food, accomodaton, staff, location. Breakfast was VERY impressive... more than adequate.
Such a shame that just as we find perfection we are informed they are chnging to all inclusive only.. which is a huge shame as the appeal of kalamaki is so many wonderful reasonably priced restaurants ..
So unfortunatley this was our first and last stay at roseland. ?.More

Everything you want for a relaxing holiday is here. From checking in to checking out is done with the minimum of fuss and in a pleasant manner. The rooms are clean and adequately furnished. Everyone of the staff are helpful and pleasant to talk to. The food is very good and plentiful. Situated a short walk to the main strip of Kalamaki and a short walk to the beach, This was our 4th visit to this hotel, and we have never been disappointed.More
