Stayed at the hotel in sept 2013 after 2 years at meandros hotel exotica hotel is brilliant great hotel-rooms very nice and clean-pool fantastic great people-everyone friendly great location-5 mins from airport-100 yards to all the pubs and restaurants great price what more do you want from your holiday !!!! the isle of wight crew back again sept 2014- cant wait :D
first time we stayed here wont be the last, staff very welcoming and could do enough for you, rooms very basic (but that greece), thought charging for fridge bit of a cheek as other hotels around the world supply them foc, Air con a luxury, which on this occasion we paid for, breakfast between 8-10 which is a bit hard after a heavy session. only had 5 mornings out of 14 as found it very sameish, wouldnt accept if all inclusive , toaster drove me mad as by time it popped breakfast was cold. not worth the extra for breakfast as could get just as good on the strip for 4 euros a head, pool very clean and lots of sunbeds although some were cracked and selfish people had put towels on early morning and didnt arrive until mid afternoon, we sat on ours about 11am and no one arrived to claim theirs until 1.30 had to stop husband from collecting up all towels and depositing them in lost property(he will be back and wont stop him next time). all in all though a great place to stay and very central.
our family stayed here in aug 2009 and in may 2010 my wife and i went again. what a great place , staff where excellent , the pool well what can i say the best and then to top it all we found out that sue at reception used to go to the same school as me . love you lots see you all in 2011 ken tester and the gang
I came here in 2009 with my family, and hated it. Upon arrival, we had the general direction of our room pointed out to us by the woman on reception which was down a small flight of stairs even though my son was in a wheelchair!!! yes there is a ramp but still had to clear 2 steps to get to. This created a poor impression from the start. Breakfast the following day only irritated us even further, food reasonable, however all the wasps made it impossible to enjoy the food, not just the odd one or two anyone could reasonable expect to see but literally dozens of them had a free run through the wide open doors, (air con not working was the reasoning behind the wide open doors) but then later in the holiday a child pointed out a number of wasps nests, one of which someone had PAINTED OVER!!!!! I counted 13 in total across the 3 buildings which I photographed and took to the travel agent I booked the holiday with. Needless to say, I wont be coming here again

Just got back from 2 weeks at the Exotica. This is a hotel that is brilliantly located for all the amenities, crazy golf-3 mins walk, beach-5mins walk, far end of "old Kalamaki" 15 mins walk and 2 mins walk from the main strip through Kalamaki. You do get a some aircraft noise but becasue of the restrictions in place for the turtles its not that early in the morning (7ish) or late at night. The staff are very friendly and helpful from Sue and Efe at reception to Sia and Debbie in the bar (and all the other staff). We were there with 2 kids (9 and7) and the kids club, pool and facilities got their thumbs up throughout our stay. It's a family friendly, clean, well run hotel and we WOULD go back again for a 3rd time, my only gripe or advice would be that we 1st went 14 years ago and the decor hasn't changed it's TIRED, certainly in our block, the doors are, in places chipped and splitting and the grey paint is dull and dour on both the doors and internal fittings. The first 2 doors are white pvc and they look SO much better, maybe it's just the one block, but it just needs a make-over, oh, and a better shower system, it does tend to have a mind of it's own!!
hi, can anyone tell me how much fridge is to hire?...got to have it to store my sons insulin.
Also how much is taxi from airport to hotel?
This was our fourth stay in Kalamaki and the first at Exotica. The hotel is ideally situated to all the amenities (beach, shops, bars etc) and our room was quite big with good facilities (some you had to pay extra for).
Just returned from the Exotica, 19th may 2008-2nd June 2008.
Last year was the first time Sia tryed out Chicken gyros on her menu with much pressure from me, give it a try, its fab!!! And tell her I recommended it!!!

Just got back from another fantastic holiday at the Hotel Exotica. A big thanks to Sevi, Sia, Paul, Ladin, Maria and all the staff who make our stay such a pleasant one. It was a little sad not having Aleco with us this year, the Fountain in his memory was a lovely to see. Paul, the entertainer, was brilliant ... look forward to seeing him again next year . It was nice to see so many familiar faces. To anyone going out to the Exotica hope you have a lovely time ... you really have picked the best place to spend your holiday. It is in a great location, the rooms are comfortable and clean, the staff are all brilliant and the facilities are excellent. We are back at the Exotica for a week on 22nd September and are counting the days already. See you all again soon,
Once again I thought that Hotel Exotica was 100 % Quality and anyone who does not agree need there head sortin'. Hope everyone from my visit is coping well, Hope to see you again had a lot of fun. Paul is doing a great job, shame his work ethic when playing me at table tennis was not the same! Keep practicing for when we next meet! Landi was a laugh and always had the knack of winning when it came to Bingo, with old trevor calling the unlucky numbers out! Sia was her smily normal self and Maria also worked hard when makingt the food!

Thanks to all for making our holiday enjoyable yet again, especially Sia, Sevi, Landin & Paul. A special mention for Maria who does really well in the snack bar.
