This was the highlight of my trip to Greece and Turkey.The staff were superb and so was the setting and the wonderful views. I would definately go back there. My husband and I made friends with staff and we both miss them and the Island of Samos, and especially Kokkari where the hotel is. I can't say enough of what a wonderful stay it was at the Kalidon Panorama Hotel. Lovely
A clean and well maintained hotel in a quiet location with great views of the green and fertile valley towards the sea. The family and staff who run the hotel give a friendly and helpful service with personal attention to your needs or requests. Nothing was to much trouble and very useful information was offered about trips, walks and local attractions. The food offered during the evening was all natural, home cooked and typically Greek, non of the frozen or chilled food we get in many UK restaurants. The bar and swimming pool area are close to each other and the pool was always clean. One side of the pool is deep, small children would need to be watched carefully. The walk up from the village of Agios Konstantinos gets steep near the hotel, but free car parking is available. The pilot on my flight told me Samos was his favorite island, especially the green hills and cooling breezes offered by the north side. I have been to many Greek islands but non match the natural greenery and freshness, even with 30C plus temperatures I found at this hotel. At night the views are across the water to the lights of Turkey. In May I'm told people visit the hotel to hear and record the nightingales as the males sing all night to attract a mate. Personally I was very surprised at the greenery and un-spoiled beauty of this area. This a hotel, and a region, well worth a visit. I will definitely be returning with my camera, recorder and walking boots as soon as possible.
