“Magical Kallisto Resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2012

Villa Nefeli is situated a stone's throw away from beautiful Pelekas beach, its emerald pool glistening like a jewel in the lush hillside greenery. The stretch of crystal clear water is within arm's length, and one can enjoy the wonderful beach as well. The house, equipped with all necessities, includes a garden, deck, and barbeque area, as well as lawn and ample space for children to enjoy. Service is excellent and this is truly an idyllic setting for a relaxing break. No complaints whatsoever. Highly recommended.

We've read in this topic about going to Zorba's restaurant and so we did.
Don't go there!
It's expebsive, and some food is ok.
But some is simply awful - and yet very expensive. We've had some calmari - and specifically asked if they are fresh. We've got some overdried not freshh very expensive piece of s**t. Couldn't eat one piece of it. And when we told the owner (and he saw that we left the plate untouched) - he just ignored.
Don't go there!

Just returned from a wonderful holiday at the Kallisto resort. All the favourable comments you will read on "Trip Advisor" are fully justified.

The apartments are set in a steep, hillside location, with wonderful Southerly views over the beautiful Pelekas beach. Surrounded by well kept gardens, there was an array of flowers cascading over our balcony. There was a generous terrace, ideal for relaxing and simply soaking up the sun and the view.

The apartment was clean and well appointed with a modern shower room and a power shower that was much more efficient than anything we have previously encountered in Greece!
When we arrived, albeit somewhat late, we were greeted by the wonderful "Effie" who was very kind and helpful. Incidentally her sister works at the "Pink Panther" taverna up the hill in Pelekas where you can enjoy fantastic pizzas, baked in a traditional wood oven, whilst looking out at the amazing view.

The apartment benefited from a good sized shared swimming pool, although we were the only ones that used it. There was a nice covered area to escape the midday sun, write a post card or enjoy a meal. There were also cooking facilities and I understand that by arrangement food can be prepared for you for a small fee, although we did not try out this option.
Try the "Bella Vista" snack bar (a 15 minute walk) for cocktails and delicious food with incredible views of the sunset.

The beach was clean, sandy and ideal for swimming and snorkelling.
The approach road to Kallisto is extremely steep and not for the faint hearted, I would suggest that this resort is unsuitable for anyone who has mobility problems. I would also advise avoiding the most basic hire car option as there is a good chance that the tyres/gearbox will not take the strain!

One final point, the owner of the Kallisto apartments, Kleomenis could not have been more helpful and accommodating. A really excellent stay!

Stayed for a week in May and nearly had the place to ourselves. The location is great with wonderful views over the beach. The resort itself is top notch, well maintained and spotlessly clean. Our apartment was very large for a one bed and amply equipped. It could easily have taken more than a couple with a cot and sofa beds also provided. The apartment benefits from a very large balcony with the wonderful views excellent for meals and drinks! The five apartments share a large pool and children's pool with plenty of space and deck chairs for even the peak season. The grounds are very well kept with lovely flowers and neat lawns.

One challenge to the resort is the very last piece of road that runs up to it and few other places is incredibly steep and I would recommend something above the basic rental if you are going to be going out with a lot with a fully loaded car. But if you plan to stay in Pelekas with some persuading all cars would get up it.

In the bay there are a few restaurants, we particularly liked Zorba's at the far end of the beach, great views, friendly welcome and wonderful fresh fish. There is also a new bar overlooking the beach next to the hotel which is worth a visit, a great venue again with wonderful views and a friendly welcome.

We have just returned from a wonderful weeks stay at Kallisto. I'm had been expecting something very nice from what I had seen on the website but I was impressed with how stunning a location it is in reality. The main 'resort' (if you can call it that; the word suggests some large complex but this is actually a small, intimate retreat) is set up on the hillside overlooking the main beach at Pelakas. The view is stunning and our apartment had an impressive, large balcony from which to take it all in. Inside, the apartment was large, airy and clean. The size was more than adequate for a couple but would easily accommodate a family with young children. The apartment was well appointed with everything you could need - plenty of cups, bowls, plates and other kitchen utensils in order to prepare food. There were items you wouldn't expect, such as a coffee maker but it is nice to see that the owners of Kallisto have really thought about what would make their guests stay even more comfortable. The apartment even had a tv, DVD player, stereo and free access to wifi - a godsend in this age of iPads and smartphones. Not everyone will use all of these of course, but again it is nice to see that some thought has gone into making this a 'premium' resort.
The grounds are beautifully well kept and tended. As soon as you arrive and enter the driveway, you notice the abundance of rose bushes, geraniums and other plants that really make the whole place feel welcoming.
There are two large swimming pools and a small children's pool surrounded by a large decking area that itself looks out across the beach. Around the pools are numerous chairs and loungers. When we stayed, the resort only had 2 of the 7 apartments occupied but you felt that should it be fully booked, there would be plenty of room for everyone.

The location is a few minutes walk from Pelakas beach, which is glorious. In fact, one of the biggest problems may be choosing where to spend an afternoon - the beach or by the pool - because both locations are so nice. I would imagine that the beach would be very busy in peak season (there is a large 5 star hotel further down the beach) so the pool area may be a welcome private area.

Pelakas beach is well served by several restaurants (I would recommend Andreas Zorbas at the far left side of the beach for excellent, fresh seafood. Simply cooked but cooked well and cooked with pride) as well as a small shop and a hilltop bar with stunning views over the sea to - worth a visit at sunset.

Overall, I felt that I had a 5 star experience at Kallisto. The location, presentation of the resort and individual apartments all were excellent. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
