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.
We spent two weeks here on honeymoon last week in August/ first week in September 2014 half board...room was basic but thats all you needed..mattress was not the best could be updated..but u always miss ur own...rooms were spotless..maid who came in every day could not do enough to help..if we had long lie she came back later. .staff were friendly and if needed help would do best to accommodate. ..breakfast was not to our liking as being British we missed our fry ups but quick nip up the main street and presto...we were on second floor and were close to bar at night but never heard a thing...we had pool facing room and sun would stream in the morning if shutters weren't closed...bliss...grounds of hotel are maintained to high standards just like pool..yes we had to pay for extras like fridge..safe. ..air conditioning (second week only) and wifi ...would be good if this was covered by price..but u dont get nothing for nothing.. evening meal was gorgeous and english lady who served us was great..her son and grandson were visiting and still she worked on and made us totally welcome...only thing I would have liked extra was tea making facilities in our room..on whole tho great hotel.. made our honeymoon better with the relaxed atmosphere. .would certainly go back.More

Stayed for 1 week 3rd to 10th October. Very nice hotel, kept clean and tidy. Staff were friendly and we stayed half board, which was very good value, and plenty of choice. We prefer smaller hotels, and this one fits the bill. Would have given 5 stars, but as the weather was dreadful on a couple of days we were confined to the hotel, and found there wasn't a great deal to do. Having said that, I would still prefer to have little to do than have loads of annoying kids running around. Other guests were generally friendly, and good fun. Fortunately the Roseland doesn't attract too many kids, at least not in October.
Used buses on a few occasions, very cheap but expect them to turn up when they feel like it, as the timetable seems irrelevant.More
Yet another delightful stay at The Roseland.
Where to start.
This is our 7th stay at The Roseland, and for me, the staff & owners cannot put a foot wrong.
I only wish that my son had been off school for another week so we could have stayed longer.
Can't wait for our next stay here.More

We chose this hotel having read so many good reviews on here. Having experienced a week here I felt that we must have been staying in a different place! The extras that you are charged for include the safe, fridge, wi-fi and air conditioning. We opted for the fridge, wi-fi and safe at an exorbitant cost of 60 euros. The fridge is permanently connected to the electricity, they simply unlock it when you pay. We asked if we could have a double room so they sent the maid to put the two single beds together and add a mattress over the top. This was fine except the bedding did not fit properly.
Our room was on the lower floor of three and was damp. You could see that was a problem for most of the rooms on this level as the plaster was blowing on the outside of the rooms. Our bathroom door did not shut properly because the wood had swollen. The maid was very efficient but each time she mopped the floor it stayed wet for a long time and smelt like a wet dog. Felt that she needed better equipment to do her job.
Whilst the staff were not unfriendly, there was no evidence of the warm feeling that previous reviewers had mentioned. The staff in the tavernas in Kalamaki made you feel much more welcome. Breakfast was adequate but nothing special. We only ate in the hotel one evening. Found the food to be ok, but the English waitress serving was not at all friendly and took a while to acknowledge we were there.
Surprised that this hotel has a three star rating. Felt it was a budget hotel at best.More
