Response from Filoxenia_Hotel, Διευθυντής at Filoxenia
Responded 03 Nov 2018
Dear Visitor, This is the third time that you have been write the same criticism for our hotel, after our 2 reports that have been made, and we forced to react asking to be removed. In each review, you add something different, for example in the recent criticism you also add that the reception staff is rude. It is also reported in previous comments that ''pool staff is rude''. I would like to inform you that our staff is something we are proud of, and most of our comments are very positive, something you can also see by reading critical pages on all reputable sites of impressions. I would also like to inform you that Grecotel Hotels & Resorts is the largest hotel chain in Greece, offering its staff the highest level of professionalism and continuous development through seminars and special training every year, with over 45 years of experience in the field of tourism . Additionally I cannot understand the very low rating you have given as a whole to our Hotel and our services, since you admitting that you were not a guest and you didn't use the facilities and the services provided. As for not allowing visitors to use the sunbeds of the swimming pool I would like to inform you, that this is a policy of our hotel due to the limited space for the in-house guests, but we have never refuse to serve anyone at our pool bar and the service we providing is at the exact same standards, as to all of our guests, in-house or visitors. But you have to understand that we have some standards and procedures in order to satisfy all of our guest and they should have to be respected also. I would like to invite you in your next visit to us , to ask for me personally , to meet you and hearing all your comments and suggestions and discuss everything that will help us being improved even more. Best regards, Konstantinos Siokos General Manager​

I went to the hotel probably with higher expectations than I should due to my past experience at Grecotel. The room although it was big, it needs renovation, like the rest of the facilities. However the location, its garden and its seashore are good and the staff is gentle.

All hotels offer excursions the hotel it self does not organize any a good site to follow on kalamata in kalamatain.gr It provides a wide selection of details not only on excursions but all that is going on and is very local and highly up to date . There is a boat excursion from town that goes around the beaches and good locations but unfortunately I don't follow the details as we organize our own excursions as a family - how ever the hotel enjoys a magnificent location over a really nice beach . A bus just outside the hotel takes you into town fairly often I think in the summer every 30 min and in the winter every hour . Taxis are not expensive either .

I believe you will enjoy it! Issues arise mostly on high season and weather permitting you will have a great vacation. Regarding the local bars and restaurants, all the good ones remain open.

"Would look to have a room according to requirements i.e. ground floor , as far as I am aware there were no noise issues"
"most rooms have a side pool or sea view"
"Don't bother to pay out for deluxe rooms - take standard, better value"
"Rooms with sea view are best."
"go somewhere else"
