We've travelled a lot, been to many places but never have we felt so cheated..Such a gap between what's advertised and the reality is absolutely shocking. Here's how they "sell" the resort on their website: "Don't you like to have an island? Oliviera resort lets you experience this feeling!" and add that it's the "first and only island hotel of...

I've been to this place three times. Its a place which you feel relaxed, and peaceful. The first time which was 2 years ago, I loved the nature and the sea. It was unbelievable. Rooms and service were so so. Last year I went back for the nature only and everything was much more better then before. Service, food, cleaning...

This place was so bad it became comical! Like Much beloved we had no hot water, dreadful food, no light, heard the car crash that was the band and sampled the foul and fly covered food. We changed rooms (we were in the luxury end to start with) the downgrade had hot water but the loo seat and shower were...

This is a catastrophic place. The brochure available at the resort ends with the bizarre strapline "Leave your Expectations Behind". If your expectations include electricity, hot water, good food, a clean pool, a courteous staff, a peaceful restaurant, lighted pathways, and any hotel information at all...then you really had better leave those expectations behind. This is a simply appalling place....

I stayed in this resort (Kalem Island Oliviera Resort ) for six days during August 2008. We were in a group of seven families each with small kids. The island, scenery, sea, nature and the island breeze is gorgeous. Fully lives up o what you on the internet site. However the quality of operations and the service is just unacceptable....

Actually the first impression of the hotel is incredible. The shore, sea, climate, sunset everything is like paradise but if you ask for a mineral water, you can't get it. That's one of the small problems. But it can be worse if you find a dead bird(more than a week) under your childs bed. But the biggest problem is the...

Stayed for 1 week at Oliviera resort for a special birthday treat and wanted something different and unusual which this certainly is. We booked a sea view chateau tower suite which had a bedroom with ensuite shower, a living room which also had a mini bar in it and a hallway with marble steps that lead upto the the tower...

“All rooms seam to be nice how ever it takse a walk to the beach since all rooms are located at the top of the island. ti is a very nice hotel however the service is really poor although the people ar every nice and try to do their best. The extra prices are extremly high according to even higher level hotels.”

“There are interlocking rooms for travellers with kids. You might want to get the rooms closer to the dinner area with a view, which are situated on the front side. They have the best view.”

“This is an island, so you need to be willing to add one more step, which is part of the allure, to your arrival. Also if the road appear to untravel continue to the end, a very special, pleasant surprise awaits you.”
