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.
very nice. our second time in Zante and this hotel was the best we'd stayed in yet. Very nice, comfortable and clean. Pool was big enough for a few small groups at once. Very close to the beach and all amenities. Epic breakfast in my mouth! Nom Nom Nom!!!
Would stay there again.More

Wonderful Stay At This Hotel.
We stayed at this great family run hotel 17-8-2014. For a week. This is the 5th time that we have stayed and loved every minute. Rooms were spotless and cleaned every day. Food at the resturant was of a high standard,all staff were very welcoming, and could not do enough to please us. Pool very safe for children and clean, gardens are tended to every day and look good. We have booked to go back for another great holiday 16-8-2015. A big thankyou to all staff and family at this well run hotel.More

Summer Holiday 2014
Lovely clean hotel within 15 minutes of the airport.
Staff very pleasant and helpful ,cleaners done a good job we would have preferred fresh towels each day but it's every three although you can get fresh ones if you ask which we did occasionally.
The mattress on my bed was horrendous and could do with been renewed, it had a huge delve in the bottom end which i presume was from people sitting on the end of the bed to watch the TV that was high up on the wall, luckily i had some strong pain killers to help me get through the fortnight of using this mattress.The fridge in the room had a lock on it and cost 40 euros to use which i thought was very expensive but it was a necessity for us in 30 degree heat.The aircon was free in the high season but we got away with not using it on a night as they had patio doors with a fly screen so it was lovely and cool.The bathroom was pretty small and could do with a few towel rings or hooks on the back of the door to have somewhere to put your towels .There is a safety deposit box in the room but we didn't use it.
We just had the breakfast so can't comment on the evening meal,the breakfast however was fine which was a continental type with cold meat etc ,a few cereals to choose from,bread to toast,scrambled eggs ,bacon , beans,fresh juice,tea & coffee.
Food around the pool was ok and fairly priced as was the cold drinks and alcohol.
The pool was lovely and very refreshing when that baking sun was out and we found that there was enough sunbeds and brollys to go around .
We had our 13 year old son with us and he did comment on the fact that it seemed a place for older people especially as it was the start of August.
The wifi in the hotel is not free and maybe it should be free and available in the hotel foyer as most hotels do offer it nowadays however it was 20 euros for a week but the lovely lady gave my son another code to have it for the second week,he also manged to connect in the room .
The hotel has bar in the foyer and also has a tv screen but we never used it ,it isn't a lively hotel so keep in mind if you have kids.
We left a 6pm but had to be out of our room by mid morning there is a shower downstairs near the pool but it was freezing maybe they could put in some hot water so guests could shower before they go home, you can ask for fresh towels at reception though and are free to use.
At the back of the hotel there is a shortcut to the beach just go through the gate carry on walking out of the scrubland and turn left and continue to walk right down the road to the beach.
Going out the front of the hotel you tun left and follow the road round up the little bank and the strip is all to the right,if you go out of the hotel and walk around the corner then bear right it leads down to Escape Taverna and a the Iguana bar which had a pool table lots of tv's with sports on and tasty snacks which made a change from the restaurants .
The hotel is on the flight path of the airport and during the day is a little noisy when a plane goes overhead but it didn't us at all nor did it seem to bother other guests.
Apart from the mattress problem it was a nice hotel and i would return here without haste.More

Roseland Hotel Kalamaki
Spent our second visit to Roseland in Sept for 11 nights even though we had a great time have to say it was not as good as our previous visit in 2012.Hotel is lovely and clean although towels only changed every three days,shower mat never changed throughout our stay .Staff are friendly with the exception of the barman who was more interested in the football ( that was on at all times) rather than the customers.Roseland is a lovely hotel with great potential.Will return to Kalamaki however will probably try one of the other hotels xMore
