Exotica Hotel
(Accommodation in Kalamaki)
9/10 Debbie C

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.

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!!  
Fridges and air-con are in the rooms but have to be paid for. Safety drawers (not boxes) are in the reception area and our room had TV (sky news) and hairdryer. Would've given 9/10 but for the decor issues.
Katie sends Annie hugs and kisses Sue and thanks again to ALL at the Exotica.

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).

However, as we were there for a ten day holiday, we began to get bored with the breakfast half-way through. There is a choice of greek yoghurt, fruit, ham, cheese, bread/toast, hard/soft boiled eggs, juices and cereals. Granted there is a choice but we began to tire of the monotony of it. In particular the toaster was a pain, go through once and it's barely toasted, put it through a second time and it's practically burnt. In the end we started to go to a cafe at the top of the road to get a bit of variety. It might have helped just to add beans to the menu? But besdies this, the hotel, the facilities, the pool and the staff was great and we couldn't fault it. We're just not sure we'd stay there again. It seems that children enjoy the hotel as it has a good swimming pool and kid's club, so it's worth a considering.

  Just returned from the Exotica, 19th may 2008-2nd June 2008.

Had a great time at the Exotica, with Sia,Georgina,Landi and Cheryl. Cheryl was great with a quiz every day and the football activities were great for my 10yr old son. The apartments were spacious and clean. Breakfast was great with cereal,yoghurt,honey,toast,waffles, eggs, beans,tea and coffee which we ate outside on the terrace. Pool was very clean and pool bar was great serving very good snacks at reasonable prices.Would recommend the Greek Night which is good fun and great value for money.My 20 mth old son loved the playground and childrens separate pool.Everyone very helpful.The beach is about a ten minute walk ---very clean and safe for little ones.Plenty of bars to eat and drink.Liked Kalamaki but missed Tavernas and loungers on beach as it is protected due to turtles laying eggs on beach, but if you hire a pedalo you can see turtles in sea.Laganas is about a 30 minute walk along the beach.Had a great holiday, hope this is useful for anyone going.....

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. click to enlarge   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!

 
Enough said,
 
Jake
