Rated 2 out of 5 by James67 Amazing location but...
This is an amazing place that looks just a little bit better than the "too good to be true" pictures on the web site. The rooms are great and every place you look at you see beauty. One thing that will stay with me forever is the huge scented garden (the whole property actually).
The kids facilities (cocoon for small children and sandcastle for older ones) are every bit as good as the ads.
Unfortunately, this is somewhat spoiled by two serious issues: restaurants and service. The dinner options are very limited. We tried them all. You get the choice between overpriced bad italian, overpriced average libanese, an average greek place, a good value for money souvlaki place, and an exquisite but very pricy asian fusion place. Except if you can just live on the (really excellent) breakfasts and (delicious) icecream.
A lot of issues with service. A couple of highlights: turning down service at 10:30 pm (great with sleeping kids), people getting in your room without knocking (twice), 10 minutes wait on average for a cup of tea at breakfast...
In general the staff is willing and friendly but lack experience and supervision.
I hope that the hotel will get this sorted out as it is really a wonderful place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gippi Top quality
I spent 3 days at the Romanos for a business meeting and also had the opportunity to relax with the facilities. Everything was top quality, from the golf course to the outstanding basketball court

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 Yodian Everything nice but the Foods&Beverages prices
To cut a long story short. Having previous experience in 5 or even 6 star resorts, this in average has met, and sometimes exceeded our expectations, BUT there is no escape from paying 80 euros per person for F&B everyday (having a free breakfast).
My usual benchmark is the Greek Salad which costs in the resort minimum 15 euros (instead of 6 in an outside taverna) and the main course around 20 euros (usually much more). By the way, just for the record, it was the first time that I saw lobster at over 110 euros/kg in Greece....
The only alternative is souvlakia but you can't have it everyday. At the end of the day, we paid 400 euros/night for the room with the private "mini-pool" (try swimming...) we don't want to eat souvlakia everyday. We want to have some alternatives at a much more reasonable price.
I respect and I guarrantee the quality of Inbu, for example, but you don't want to pay 70 euros/person for dinner everyday...
This is the reason that we will think twice returning with our two children this time (4X80)=320 euros/day for F&B...
You should have a couple of reasonably priced alternatives for F&B in the resort (25 euros/person)...
