Hi everyone

Just wondering if anyone's heard of any changes this year in Kalami.

Just read your message Jackarmy, I've heard that Gina will not be at San Antonio any more.

Thanks for the information.  Gina will be sorely missed by all the Kalami regulars. Do you have any news as to where she has moved and if Sam as staying or is moving on as well?

No other news unfortunately. I sent an e-mail to Gina but had a reply from a lady called Maria who signed off as 'front desk'. It was she who said that Gina was no longer with them but gave no clue to why or where but you are right, Gina will be sadly missed.

Last year Gina was in Kalami but did not work for Stavros and Maria who now own Melina Bay.  She worked for the person who owns San Antonio and as far as I was aware, was quite happy.  Maybe there is a bit of confusion going on. Confused

When we were in Kalami last July had a chat with Gina and something she said then gave me an inkling that maybe she wouldn't be there this year. We asked how she was liking the changes and she indicated that there were some things she wasn't too happy with and she would try to sort them out at the end of season review with the owners. If she has left then it will be a great loss to the A&A.

I wondered if Gina might be at Melina Bay this year. I also had the feeling she wasn't entirely happy with the changes at San Antonio last season.

Janalexmike, it would be fantastic if Gina was working at Melina Bay.  She is such a lovely lady and nothing is too much trouble for her, even us! Wink

JackArmy, Gina would be an asset for anyone's business and as you say, a great loss to Kalami.

I spoke to Maria recently who confirmed Gina and Alex will be at Melina Bay and Sam will be at Cocktails and Dreams which will still by run by her and Stavros.  We are trying a different accommodation this year - the Votsalo, just below San Antonio. We wanted to try and get a couple of nights at Melina but fully booked - good for them. Can't wait.

Just arrived back from San Antonio, after spending another fabulous two weeks there. No Gina anymore, but I must say that George and George on reception are doing a great job. Got the room we asked for which has had a makeover and is really smart now. Fridge and kettle with the makings provided, but no kitchen. Had a nice present left for us in the room by the owners which was a really nice touch. Greek night still as good as ever with Stavros and co still trying to burn the place down. Also live Greek music by a three piece group. Just sorting out dates for our return.

Is Stavros still dancing? When we were there last year he said his knees were too bad to dance now so he didn't show up and the Greek night wasn't as long or as involved as it used to be.

Stavros was doing his bit this year, no table in the mouth, but everything else. Greek night was more professional and longer this year with nice little Greek trio laying live music all night.

We are returning to Kalami after 7 years away. We holidayed there since 1993 and our children came with us every year until 2009. This year (1 July) we are returning with just our son - we would love to know what's changed - have Stavros and Maria moved on - does Sam still work on the bar and is Spiros still doing entertainment - from what I have read - probably not :(

Hi ClaireMarks

They have taken on what was the Kassimiss Hotel on the harbour in Kassiopi in addition to the A & A. The A & A is no longer self catering, has been renamed San Antonio Resort and has a new beach bar. Sam is on the main bar from 4pm. Spiros hasn't done the evening entertainment for a long time. He and his wife, Joanna, run the supermarket. We haven't stayed in Kalami since 2012 so I'm not up to date with the evening entertainment.
The old Kasssimis has been completely renovated & refurbished and renamed Melina Bay Hotel. This is their third year there. We stayed there for a week in May and loved it. Stavros & Mara work between San Antonio & Melina Bay. Spiros is head chef at Melina Bay in the evenings and in the supermarket at Kalami in the mornings. I'm not 100% sure but I think whether Stavros dances depends how busy the restaurant at Melina Bay is as he is front of house there. There may be return transport available from the San Antonio to the Melina Bay. If you do visit Melina Bay I doubt you'll be disappointed.
There have been other changes at Kalami since 2009 but also many things are the same and Kalami is as beautiful as ever.

Deedee Big smile
Are we there yet?
We've been and come back but we're going again.
