Clean and comfortable hotel with first class staffPosted Aug 26, 2014
Pros: Location was good, the facilities were satisfactory but most importantly the staff everywhere were excellent.
Cons: The food and WiFi/ Broadband.
Location: Sitted at the edge of Kalamata's promenade, guests may get out and about and enjoy local restaurants/clubs. Near to the Mani and ancient Messina.
Although our room faced the sea it was set so far back that there was no sea view as such. Only garden/pool views. Although it was advertised as having free WiFi throughout, for anybody wanting to do serious work, the facility was hopelessly slow and often only intermittent because the rooms were far from the router and the broadband could not cope with the heavy usage. Working in the reception area made things better but even then far from satisfactory.. Although the beach was clean, it should be made clear that it is a pebble beach and getting in and out of the water without appropriate protective footwear was difficult. Constant, pounding music made it difficult to relax. The quality of the food and the way the buffet was set out could be significantly improved.

Relaxing and family friendlyPosted Dec 2, 2012
Pros: Swimming pool, beach and breakfast.
Cons: No sandy beach but it's not their fault really :)
Location: Just in front of the beach.
We were looking for a relaxing holiday. I spent 5 days with my wife and 2 years old daughter and we all had a great time. We enjoyed the swimming pools and the beach (thought no sand castles as it's just pebbles). There's a shallow swimming pool for small children and the beach is calm, without waves almost and just 20 steps from the swimming pool. The breakfasts are fantastic, full of options to choose from. The staff was very friendly. There was free WiFi in the lobby though not very good reception in my room. But having WiFi in the swimming pool and beach was cool.

Great hotel for parents and kidsPosted Aug 19, 2012
Pros: Relaxing at the pool
Cons: Sometimes the noise inthe morning fromthe cleaners.
Location: One of the best spots in kalamata.
Everything at hand. Swimming pool for kids and the beach just a few meters away! A very rich breakfast, clean and beautiful rooms. I found expensive the coffee near the pool and the toast (8 $ for the toast). Very quiet place with view to the mountains or the swimming pool according to your preferences. Ideal for families for summer vacations

Good rather than greatPosted Sep 1, 2011
Probably as good as anywhere in Kalamata. The beach bar with day beds and optional 10 euro Cabana's on the beach are excellent, pool is decent. Nothing really bad about the hotel just more *** than *****.

E-Filoxenia Kalamata: luxury spot for exploringPosted Jul 5, 2011 on Hotels.com
This is a luxurious hotel with a nice beach in Kalamata. We choose it based on location from which to explore that area of the Poloponnese. Everything is within a 1 to 2 hour drive. There is a long strip of hotels along the beach here, and not much else in the town really. The front desk gave us wonderful directions to some great restaurants WAY up the hill with a great view. also, the manager Georgia gave us a surprise destination not in any guide books: beautiful waterfalls about 40 minutes away toward the coast. these were spring-fed beautiful lakes coming down a mountain with swimming. The staff went out of their way to do everything possible to make guests feel welcome and appreciated. While we were there, the Greek financial crisis was going on and there was daily electrical blackouts in various parts of the country. The hotel keep right on running, maybe an internet glitch, but they were right on it to fix the problem. The pool is beautiful! The pool bar is great. Beachside service is great, food and drink. The hotel features an unbelieveable breakfast buffet--not the usual rolls and yogurt, but a full spread worthy of great hotels. AND they have a lunch buffet and dinner buffet as well. it should be noted that the beach and hotel are together, not across the street as with other hotels down this stretch of beach in Kalamata. They offer free umbrellas and chairs AND beautiful beach cabanas (those big white tents) for only 10 euro--if you want one get there early because first-come, first-served. We were on our honeymoon and this was a high-style, full-service hotel that fully merited the price. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Lovely resort hotel and base for visiting areaPosted Jul 5, 2011
The official 5 star rating was recently granted following the takeover of the hotel by the Classical Group which has many high quality hotels in Greece. It was previously 4 star and some of the rooms reflect this. However, Classical Group plans to close the hotel in October for a major refurbishment. Wonderful pool area and garden. The beach is gritty and shelves. Great breakfast on outside terrace by pool and garden. Popular for local weddings

Good Place to Stay in KalamataPosted May 16, 2011
The Classical Filoxenia Hotel in Kalamata is a very pleasant place, well situated one kilometre or so east of the town centre on the seafront. The building is modern with good facilities and there is a fine pool and access to the pebble beach. Rooms are well-equipped (though without facilities for making hot drinks) and the furnishings are good. We did not have dinner in the restaurant but the breakfast was excellent. There are many tavernas and other restuarants in Kalamata. We would certainly stay at this hotel again.
