Castello Antico Beach Hotel
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Mavrovouni
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 June 2017

We spent lovely days at Castello Antico. Everything was excellent!
Beautiful hotel, tastefully decorated, excellent location. Good size rooms (30 m 2), very clean, comfortable and quiet. Our room was with balcony overlooking the sea. Delicious home made greek breakfast, especially pies, yoghurts and jams. We were made to feel so welcome and the staff are very friendly and helpful. They do their best to enjoy your stay and make you feel like at home.
The restaurant food is also excellent and good value.
Castello Antico is located on a long sandy Mavrovouni beach with crystal clear water (great for long walks and swimming). It takes only few minutes to the sunbeds provided by Castello Antico. Hotel has a lovely pool also.
The location of the hotel is very convenient for exploring Mani, Mystras, Monemvasia, Geraki, etc.
We liked everything. Best wishes to all the staff of Castello Antico. Looking forward to see you again next year.

Room Tip: All rooms are comfortable and quiet. We stayed in the room with balcony overlooking the sea. Lovely.

We are a family of three, stayed at Castillo Antico in June 2017.  We usually tend to stay at quality 4* hotels, but based on excellent reviews decided to try 3* Castillo.
Well, it was a perfect stay. Everything starting from a smooth and welcome check-in by Nicoletta was perfect.
Rooms have a good space, around 30m2, the sleeping facilities are impeccable, the cleaning service is excellent.

The hotel is located in a countryside, so having a car is a must. It is around 2,5 hrs of driving from the Athens airport and 1,5 hrs from Kalamata.

The hotel has rooms on the 1st and the 2nd floors in small connected houses. Our room 107 was in the middle, on the 1st floor.   A comfortable balcony, with nice garden views. Far away from the road, very quiet. The area of the hotel and garden is well taken care of.

The hotel is located literally on the beach - it is a 2 min walk to the sunbeds. The beach is wide and sandy, with a little of pebbles. Almost empty!

A small hotel restaurant offers good quality food and nice service. We had meals several times there, and enjoyed everything.  Breakfast is also nice, and plentiful.

We are thinking to come back to Castillo Antico!

We stayed here in 2014 and were excited to return this year. As we hoped, the hotel is still well run, immaculately clean and the staff (though all changed we think) are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is very nice and the pool bar and food service is relaxing. We truly relax here!

A beautiful hotel by the sea with friendly staff, always eager to help you. The food is exceptional with local ingredients. Worth enjoying some nights over if you are visiting Gytheio or Mani area. The sandy beach is excellent for you to relax and enjoy swimming.

This is a very special place.
Castello Antico is an architectural joy. It respects the style of the traditional architecture of the Mani region and then re-invents it for modern use. Rather than being a single building facing the beach, the hotel is one sequence of individual units at right-angles to the beach which are beautifully aligned to provide beach and sea views. At the same time this layout provides the spacious and comfortable rooms with protection from the heat of the afternoon sun. Between the hotel and the beach are an open terrace in front of the restaurant, a swimming pool with pool bar, and a large open area for relaxation. The whole complex is immaculately maintained.

But special hotels like this are more than just buildings and gardens. What makes Castello Antico so special are all the people who work there. They are charming,helpful and friendly and it was with some sadness that we had to leave after a very enjoyable stay. Thanks again to all of them.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are light and roomy
