The owners were indifferent from the moment they met us.The owner picked 3 couples from the ferry port and when we arrived at the hotel we were all asked to wait.The owner purposely left us to the very last to check in and we were given a very small,dark room whilst the other 2 couples were shown up stairs.The bathroom only had cheap shampoo and very tiny soap bars.The hot water tank had enough hot water for one person and we would have to wait for 10 minutes for the tank to heat up again..The location of the hotel is at an intersection and there is a constant buzz of traffic all the time.The pool area is extremely noisy with outside traffic.
Breakfast is terrible with no fresh fruit.Just yogurt,canned orange juice,toast and very dry piece of cake.Pathetic!
The owner took us to the ferry an hour and a quarter earlier and we sat around the port in the hot sun as there was little shelter around until the ferry boat arrived.When we asked him how long the wait would be when he dropped us,he nonchalantly said an hour plus!We could have stayed at the hotel relaxing for an hour as the ferry terminal is 10 minutes from the hotel!It was like he did not want us hanging around the hotel!
In our 3 days there,he hardly smiled or gave us proper information about the island.We met other tourists whose hotel provided proper maps,excellent breakfasts,water view and HOSPITALITY.The owner of Kallisti hotel is rude,ungracious and made us feel like we were not welcome.Everywhere in Greece we have encountered lovely ,helpful people.Kalisti's treatment left us disturbed.We would not recommend this place.
