Concierge.com's insider take:
The hotel itself is pleasant enoughstone walls, terra-cotta roof, simply furnished rooms, but the picturesque location is the real draw. The Kalamitsi sits in an olive and cypress grove, and a narrow staircase leads down to a virtually private pebbled beach. Ask for an upper roommost offer a sea view. To get to the hotel, drive out of town (away from Kalamata). You'll pass the Voulas taverna (the sign is spelled half in Greek, half in English), and the entrance for the Kalamitsi is on the right immediately thereafter.
