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.

Family holiday to Kalamaki
We have just returned from a lovely weeks stay at the Roseland Hotel. This is a nice hotel, with a lovely set of staff and is perfect for a budget or quiet holiday. We found our room to be a reasonable size and the beds were very comfortable. The room was cleaned to a high standard every day. The food is very good quality for an all inclusive budget hotel, the hot food was hot and the cool stuff was cool! Everything was also very fresh, and you could eat anytime from 8am until 9pm at night (self service snacks available outside mealtimes). The staff are amazing, in particular Vicky and Marina on reception who were so helpful;Saide the maid was friendly and did a great job; Giannis was a very competent and friendly bar man and Joanna the waitress always took time to come over and say hello to our little girl. The hotel grounds are pleaant and its well situated for the beach and the shops/bars in Kalamaki , yet its very quiet and peaceful. If I could suggest improvements it would be to have a towel rail in the bathroom, a clothes rail on the balcony for drying clothes and a dedicated vegetarian option in the restuarant at lunch and dinner. There was plenty of side vegetables, salads and rice or pasta but not much else compared with 4/5 choices for meat/fish eaters. I was hoping for vegetarian moussaka at least once but was didnt get it :-(More
Just got back from the Roseland hotel had a wonderful time with everything about it is great you only have to read what others say and everyone seems to return year after year which says it all. Thanks to each at Roseland. More
Value for money
Good points first ! Food plenty of choice at all meal times no problems for us ðalchol drinks were fine but I heard people say wine a bit weak ? ð room we had was large, bed comfy , I believe bathrooms are been updated for next season. Hotel is extremely clean spotless well happy ð. All staff from front of desk, restaurant, cleaners are friendly and polite my personal favourite was Gianni bar person who worked from 4pm till 11pm ! Plenty of sunbeds for sun worshipers lol ,entertainment consisted of karaoke, bingo, quiz, Greek night and a singer which we didn't see 2 days nothing on . There is a shortcut to the beach go past the pool towards small kids area, follow path through a gap in fence carry on walking till you come to iron gate turn left here beach end of this road . Only complaint we have is the amount of people smoking and coughing badly ð no respect to other people eating outside as it's a little warm sat inside restaurant, maybe needs a no smoking area outside or a no smoking policy during meal times ! Overall we enjoyed our stay and would return âº and highly recommend cheers More
Good Value and better than 3*
My wife and I came to Zante on a cheap last minute package deal with Thomson. We only paid approx Â£260 each so we weren't expecting much and it was our first time in Zante. The Roseland is rated at 3* but I would give it a 4* because the staff are extremely nice and the place is pretty modern. The food wasn't great, it's mainly Pasta and Chips. Souvlaki was on the menu only once and Gyros wasn't anywhere to be seen. It was just Pasta, Pasta and more Pasta. The live cooking station was..... Yep you guessed it, PASTA. The All inclusive drinks were good compared to other places we've stayed at. The only negative is that for the first few days we couldn't get a spirit until after 4pm because the barman wasn't at work. The wine, beer and soft drinks were available at all times and were self-serve but sometimes the white wine had lots of bits in it. The rooms were modern and spacious but the beds are single beds. The wifi wasn't free but I had Three like Home so it wasn't an issue. The Pool was freezing but there's nothing the hotel can do about that, maybe it'll warm up during the summer. Zante is a very nice island, we visited the Shipwreck Beach from above and below, the Blue Caves, the Keri Cliffs and we even seen a Sea Turtle up close. Kalamaki beach is close to the hotel but the best beaches were on the south east peninsula. We rented a car and went exploring but most of the guests never left the hotel which is a real shame. Overall we would stay here again, the staff are most definitely the best part of the hotel.More
We have been repeat guests of this hotel for the past 11 years, but this was our first visit back since they went AI. Honestly we were not overly impressed with food on offer, very repetitive during our stay. OK if you like chips or pasta with everything. The biggest gripe around the food was that it wasn't hot, it was always lukewarm even at the start of the meal times. Yes there was a microwave (when it worked ) to warm food up but doesn't that defeat the object!. Noticed a lot of food being left by guests at mealtimes too. The really nice thing about the Roseland though food aside is the management and the staff even down to the cleaners, they are such lovely people and will go out of their way to help and assist you at any time of the day with any thing. Always a smile on their faces very happy people. Now this hotel has had a massive makeover since our last visit and all can say is WOW it looks stunning. The transformation is amazing and the bed rooms are lovely and modern now. Was told by the owner that the bathrooms are being replaced at the end of this season then the refit will be complete. Love this hotel to bits but not the food, how ever there are tons of lovely restaurant's in the resort to eat at if you want to venture away from the hotel. I was amazed to see how many people never actually left the hotel during our stay, Sad to see when they are visiting such a beautiful island, but each to their own. Also found that a lot of people were reserving " their sunbeds" as early as7am every morning - God help anyone who got there before them, as we found out one morning. Got the look of death for the remainder of the day LOL. Overall a lovely holiday, met some very nice and not so nice people. This hotel has definitely attracted a different type of cliental since gong AI and not sure I like this but is just my personal opinion. Will we return to the Roseland ,if the food was to improve yes - otherwise I don't think so I'm afraid.xxMore
