Was at The Horizon Blu Sept 2022. Nice clean hotel rooms are adequate and cleaned daily. We used the spa and was very pleased with. While we were there the breakfast was buffet but lunch time and evening meal was table service. The food was good and very large portions my husband and I shared rather than had a dish each but the menu never changes it stays the same and gets boring they need to sort out menus and we were also let down on one night with how long it took to get the food to the table unfortunately we had to complain something we rarely do. Once they get this sorted then top marks as we had hot sunny weather could always get a sun bed and the staff were always friendly and helpful

Room tip: We had a room with a pool which was lovely on the ground floor with a sort of garden view.

This is what I would judge as a very good 4+ star hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, sorting out a problem with a very noisy bunch of British tourists next door, by moving us up the corridor to a more peaceful part with an even better view. The exceptionally helpful Keriakos & Thanos were a shining example of the highest customer service values. Many thanks to these two reception managers.
Other exceptional points here are the beautiful dark wood panelled rooms, the semi-private pools, the aspect, cleanliness, being at the foot of a gloriously 4000ft mountain, the seafront location, and the very convenient proximity to the centre of beautiful, vibrant Kalamata, where the food is not only very reasonably priced, but is of a generally high quality. Plus, the easy access to some of Europe’s most supremely beautiful and spectacular scenery.
My only issue is that, as is usual in so many hotels, the hot breakfast elements are stone cold or vaguely warm. But this can be easily corrected.
The closure of the main restaurant was regrettable, in September. Certainly, closing it later in September would make more sense, especially when JET2, for example are trying to increase passenger numbers during September. Something that the management need to consider.
Finally, Kalamata is an exceptional base to visit the largest concentration of ancient sites in the world. You are spoilt for choice, not just for historic sites, but the number of beaches, mountain trips, towns and panoramic views to be enjoyed.
Additionally, you can even go skiing during the winter months. Definitely Europe’s most unsung yet most interesting area of natural, organic beauty.
Highly recommended.

Room tip: Book in advance with a package company and you can get a good deal.

My wife and I stayed at Horizon Blu in late August and were joined half way though our stay by our 20 year old daughter who had been working Gytheio. We stayed in a room with private plunge pool which overlooked the main pool. The rooms were spacious and very nicely decorated. The hotel is well located, with the beach on the opposite side of a busy road.
The beach is ok but we spent most of the days near the pool area which is aesthetically pleasing with plenty of space. There were more than enough sun beds available and the pool was never busy. There was also a good quality gym and sauna available at extra cost.

Breakfast was provided and was very nice with a good selection. Unfortunately the main restaurant which adjoins the building was closed at the time of our stay. However food was available throughout the day and night via the pool bar. Service was good with extremely pleasant and helpful staff. The food was also very good with an exceptional seafood pasta that was better than any other we tried during our stay. With the main restaurant being closed the food menu did become a bit samey so we ended up eating out elsewhere.

In summary a very nice hotel in a good location. Highly recommended if your visiting Kalamata.
