Rated 5 out of 5 by george1972 A must-stay hotel experience
The hotel is an excellent choice for everyone and the overall rating is almost 10..
The positives would take at least 1000 characters so I would only say congratulations for the personnel.
a short list of 3 negatives that if they change we would talk about a perfect 10!
1. mosquitos (not to blame the hotel)
2. free-wifi on the room (not a 24-hour but just 1 hour per day free with a code is sufficient and then pay the extra-time).
3. service on the beach and pools (towels,bars etc) should extend from 18.30 to 20.00 I believe.
Thank you for the overall experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pylosgirl Beautiful and luxurious but overpriced food/beverage
The prices of food/drink were very overpriced for the value. The room pricing is already high but for the value you get at the resort, prices of the room are worth it. Food/drink prices are not worth the money, however.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandy13 Unforgettable experience guaranteed!
Me and my partner enjoyed the resort very much. Costa Navarino is outstanding in terms of landscape, design, features and services.
Furthermore the area of Messinia is unspoilt and the scenery is very attractive. The GM and his hotel team have assured their attention to make our stay most enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pafo Destination Navarino, what an experience!!
I was planning to visit Navarino for a while now and always cancelled last minute. After visiting the resort early September I realized that I was postponing an amazing trip, a trip to relaxation and almost to…heaven I would say!
Location cannot be described in words, resort is absolutely fitting the environment, rooms are spacious and clean, food is very good, lots of facilities throughout (loved the fitness centre), service met my expectations (even if I heard some negative comments prior to arrival) and really liked the variety of restaurants and bars. Overall a wonderful experience and would definitely go back next summer! A big “thank you” to the management team and staff!

Rated 4 out of 5 by GKar Overall satisfied
The facilities were outstanding, the staff very helpful amd the breakfast was more than satisfying.
On the other hand, the restaurants were really expensive comparing to the services provided; and this something that management should re-consider.
Even the fast food restaurant (Souvakerie) way way expensive for what the serving.

Rated 2 out of 5 by vanessa40 This hotel is in a great location and the property is beautiful
This is one of the most beautiful resorts in Greece and the hotel location is ideal. Great nature and sea with plenty to experience and enjoy.
The rooms, pools, fitness centres, spa and general facilities are excellent.
Perhaps because this is a newly opened property, service has teething problems on all levels. Staff is generally keen to try and offer good service and please the guests.
The restaurants are many in number but very pricey with very average food.

What a fantastic holiday - back home now and reminiscing on so many wonderful moments we've had together as a family at The Rominos.. This is made possible by a number of things - the beautiful hotel, the facilities but also and most importantly the Staff - how amazing to be looked after by people who genuinely care about every interaction. Our 9 year old already wants to return - THANKYOU to one and all....

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aristotle best vacation ever
Everything about The Romanos exceeded our expectations. We very much enjoyed the breakfast buffet, afternoon treats at the pool, and the beauty of the property itself. The gardens and dining venues are magnificent. The service is impeccable with all personnel very anxious to please.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PJk1 Greek products in restaurants
When I visit a hotel in Greece I expect to be served Greek products wherever possible. I do not want to have to buy Evian in your bar when there are excellent Greek waters everywhere else in the hotel. Give your customers a choice for a simple thing like this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KTD123 Thank you for a great experience
Thank you to the staff for a wonderful vacation. The hotel building and natural surroundings are impeccable, but it is the staff of a hotel that ultimately make or break a stay.
The spa was also a delightful experience and something I was not expecting in Greece. My husband was very impressed with the golf facilities. His only criticism was that he ended up playing on his own when he requested to be paired up with one more person. He would have played one more round, but did not want to show up and be on his own for a second time. In all, job well done!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jackie17 Disappointing Experience
My husband and I have stayed at several Luxury Collection hotels over the last 10 years. Our experiences have always been outstanding but Costa Navarino was a disappointment. It took us 1 hour to check-in, and another 1 hour to check out. There were mistakes in my bill, I was overcharged. food was ok but it took too long to be served, At teh beach, it took 30 minutes to get a server and another 30 minutes to get a drink. At the Italian restaurant, they got my order wrong so my friends had to eat while I waited for my food ... it took one another 30 minutes to get my right order. The list of complaints goes on an on. Overall, the service was beyond bad. I will never return to Costa Navarino.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TIMB123 BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY
I STAYED FOR 5 NIGHTS AT THE END OF JUNE. MY STAY WAS PRETTY MUCH PERFECT. THE PROPERTY IS EXCEPTIONALLY BEAUTIFUL, EXTREMELY WELL-KEPT IN EVERY WAY, THE DECOR IS EXQUSIITE AND THEY HAVEN'T SPARED A CENT ON THE FURNISHINGS - EVERYTHING IS ABSOLUTELY TOP QUALITY. THEY HAVE HIT THE RIGHT BALANCE BETWEEN LUXURY WHILE NOT BEING STIFLING. THE BREAKFAST BUFFET IS EXCELLENT WITH TONS OF CHOICE AND THE RIGHT MIX BETWEEN GREEK SPECIALTIES (THE GREEK HONEY ON THE HONEYCOMB WAS AMAZING), ALTHOUGH MORE FRUITS WOULD BE NICE. AN INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF CHILDREN AT THE BREAKFAST, BUT I DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY ALL DISAPPEARED TO AFTERWARDS!! THERE IS AN AMAZING AMOUNT OF THINGS TO DO: BIKING, HIKING, SCUBA DIVING, GOLF OF COURSE, SPA AND EVEN SOME GREAT CULTURAL ACTIVITIES AS WELL. IALTHOUGH I HAVE TO COME BACK TO DO THEM ALL, AS I WAS THERE PRIMARILY FOR THE BEACH, WHICH WAS PERFECT IN EVERY WAY: SERVICE, LOUNGERS, RESTAURANT. ENOUGH SPACE FOR EVERYONE. DESPITE WHAT OTHER PEOPLE HAVE SAID ABOUT SERVICE PROBLEMS, I DIDN'T SEE IT. I FOUND THE PEOPLE IN THE HOTEL EXTREMELY WARM, SMILING AND READY AND WILLING TO HELP. THEY WERE GENUINELY HAPPY TO BE THERE IN MY OPINION. GENUINELY WARM GREEK HOSPITALITY LIKE THIS MAKES YOU SERIOUSLY QUESTION WHY WE TAKE THE CONTINUAL ABUSE OF HAVING TO DEAL WITH THE ARROGANCE OF FRENCH STAFF IN THE RIVIERA. WHAT A REFRESHING DIFFERENCE TO ACTUALLY FEEL WELCOME. 2 WRINKLES ONLY THAT I SAW WAS WITH THE PARKING WHEN THE HOTEL FILLED UP OVER THE WEEKEND. STAFF WERE COMPLETELY UNPREPARED AND WE WERE FORCED TO PARK AT THE GOLF CLUB AND HAD TO ASK AT THE GOLF CLUB FOR THEM TO SEND A BUGGY. THESE PEAKS NEEDS TO BE BETTER MANAGED, AS IT SEEMS THERE ARE A NUMBER OF CONFERENCES HELD AT THE WESTIN SIDE AND THE TINY PARKING LOT AT ROMANOS FILLS IN SECONDS. ALSO, AS MENTIOEND BY OTHERS, PAYING FOR WIFI AT A 5 STAR PROPERTY IS VERY ANNOYING. HIDE IT IN THE PRICE OF THE ROOM IF YOU WISH, BUT DON'T MAKE A SEPARATE CHARGE FOR IT; IT IS TACKY. F&B IS BASICALLY DOUBLE NORMAL PRICES OUTSIDE THE HOTEL, BUT THIS IS TO BE EXPECTED AND IS OVERALL GOOD QUALITY (EVEN THE SOUVKALI PLACE). OVERALL, A FANTASTIC STAY, A FANTASTIC RESORT WITH EVERYTHING YOU COULD WANT, ALL IMPECCABLY PRESENTED. CONGRATULATIONS TO THE OWNERS FOR A WONDERFUL PROPERTY. I WILL BE BACK!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jbrown STUNNING, PERFECT, - CONGRATULATIONS TO THE OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT!
Words really cannot express how wonderful Costa Navarino is, but I will give it a shot nevertheless.
We were guests of the “Romanos, Costa Navarino” from August 8-13, 2010 and had an absolutely spectacular time with our Twin 3 year olds. I have to say that we were a little nervous having read the reviews posted on the internet, but found from our recent experience, that none of the concerns applied. EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT.
Both my wife and I are very well traveled and have each had the good fortune of staying in fine hotels and resorts throughout the world and I will say without hesitation, that Costa Navarino is the best so far. While driving in to this magnificent resort area you can begin to understand the careful attention to detail and the incredible amount of time and money that was spent creating this Mediterranean paradise. The perfectly manicured golf course and landscaping gave a not so subtle hint of what waited ahead and with every step we took towards our room, we could easily understand that absolutely no expense was spared in construction and design.
One traveler posted a Trip Adviser review stating that he believed the quality of construction was cheap and he could not have been more incorrect. Everything you see and everything you touch is of the highest quality. There is more wood, marble and stone in this resort than imaginable.
The rooms and common areas are incredible and the setting is even better. I was told by a staff member that the entire resort sits on 15,000 acres of land and required 18,000 signatures for building permits. Regardless of the numbers, it is obvious that the 20 years of design and construction paid off for the guests.
As with any large resort, especially new ones, service can be an issue, but we experienced no issues whatsoever. The staff was attentive, courteous and everywhere. We saw no delays for anything and everyone seemed to know exactly what their job was and how to get things done in timely fashion.
Regarding the food, the morning breakfast was outstanding and we had the experience of dining in nearly all of the restaurants, except for the golf club, for which we just did not have enough time, but will make certain to book on our next visit. I will say that one of the best features of the resort is the Agora shopping plaza and village, which features several great stores, a Souvlaki restaurant and Kafeneio. At night time, it is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a coffee and dessert while listening to music and taking in the authentic atmosphere of a little Greek village. You can totally understand the careful attention to detail the owners and designers had in mind while relaxing and seeing the satisfied faces of those around you.
FOR CHILDREN, COSTA NAVARINO IS AN ABSOLUTE PARADISE!! Although the sister property next door is probably a better hotel for the “little ones”, the staff will transport you there from the “Romanos” in one of the many waiting golf carts and during the three minute ride over, you get a great tour of the grounds.
Once there, the splash pond and lagoon pool areas are the perfect attractions for the kids. I was asked what my favorite part of the vacation was and aside from the new friends we spent time with, without question, it was seeing the joy on my son and daughter’s faces while they played in water park. They never wanted to leave and I will admit that even as an adult, I too found it difficult to walk away from in the late afternoon when we were all exhausted and needed a well deserved and comfortable rest before yet another, great culinary adventure.
We were so thrilled with our experience that we have already booked for next August and are contemplating return in a few weeks time in mid September. Although not that difficult to do so considering our experience, we have also convinced three of our friends to join us with their children next Summer.
COSTA NAVARINO IS TRULY A WORLD CLASS, ULTRA LUXURIOUS RESORT AND SHOULD NOT BE MISSED ANY COST!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Annoula A place worth visiting
When you first arrive at the resort you cannot believe what you actually see. You let yourself carried away by the beauty of the location among olive trees. We stayed at Romanos hotel for a weekend and we loved this experience. It is actually like living in paradise.
The service was great. Everyone was gentle and willing to guide and help us. The room had a private swimming pool with sea view and it is by far the best room we had ever lived in. Spacious, cosy and shiny. The beach keeps its natural beauty, always clean, looks like Malibu. The beach bar restaurant Barbouni and Eleon Restaurant captivated us with their delicious suggestions. Breakfast was also great and focuses on local products. There are plenty of facilities- the spa and gym are highly recommended.
Don't miss the experience!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by andy68 No chance to get recognized your SPG status
No point about hotel quality, luxury arrangements, resort, ...
I've decided to write this review to let everybody know about the poor recognition of SPG status.
I'm a platinum member and I stayed for 5 nights at the resort.
Resrvation was made by my company, who decided to arrange a vacation to all its teams of distributors, but even after clearly showing my SPG status, I was denied of a room upgrade, late checkout and even free interent connection !!!
My question is: for this hotel a platinum member just when you wpend 300 Euros of ore per night or the status is worthy to be recognized? I don't like to attitude of this hotel.

It is maybe one of the best resorts in the world. The quality of staying, the luxury rooms, the amazing staff, the fantastic restaurants, the infrastructure which is embedded in the local environment and many more will make your stay at least unforgettable. I would say that it is a lifetime experience!
Thank you all!

After all...Costa navarino and particularly Romanos is a resort full of facilities luxury and a natural touch.Excellent exterior ...large gardens and pools.As regards the infinity rooms it would be ideal to say thah they combine comfort and luxury in a modern way.
The only flaw is the lack of glass shower in front of the bath looking to the king bed.That's why was leaking to the floor while i was taking a bath.

Positives: beautiful premises, good room, sandy beach ( do not expect soft white sand ), recreational water park, excellent swimming pools
Negatives: terrible pillows and a hard bed, not enough A/C, mediocre food, no night life
We have three small children, so on the balance it was a very good place for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TIMB123 Still Great
Another beautiful stay at this gorgeous property. This time in a Premium Infinity suite, which was quite private (the big difference with the Infinity suite is less) with a sea view and pool (which I noticed some algae...this needs to be addressed). This time, we also used the Diving centre which was excellent in every way. Thank you to Eleni, Alex and George who not only extremely friendly and capable instructors for my friend but also nice dive companions for me). They really work together as a team. Their materials were top notch (ok, it is only one year old) and I found the price for everything excellent value, especially for what we received in return. The Reception Manager Yannis (who is often listed in people's commentary was gracious as always). And the ladies at the beach bar were lots of fun. I am still amazed on how nice everyone is at this resort. Congratulations once again for a fantastic resort that carefully balances luxury and acessibility without being remotely stuffy, and where you feel almost like you are in your own house, yet in a huge resort. I tend not to eat too much in the hotel, but the breakfast is excellent and well stocked, although more attention sjhouzld be placed (as I mentioend the last time) on fruits...there isn't enough and the fruits that are there just aren't ripe enough. I am amazed by the amount of people that descend on the buffet and the amount people eat!! It is a bit of a zoo...but I haven't been able to figure out where all the people disappear to after! The only criticism I have thsi time is the Souvlakeria...I noticed a difference in quality this tme around (I ate there a couple of times...tiny portions, almost no olive oil and pretty inferior ingredients...but double the price of outside. This is the most popular restaurant in the hotel, and we pay a premium for it being int he hotel and that is fine, but the quality needs to be the same (or better). But, really these points are MINOR...the fact is, this resort is excellent in almost every way. Unfortunately I made plans to go to Crete and Mykonos in september and October...had I not, I would definitely be back to this wonderful oasis, before the winter comes...
