Oh my god, this place was amazing. It is the best hotel we've ever been to. It has the highest quality of everything and the service is impeccable. We spent 7 nights here on our honeymoon and loved every minute of it. Highly recommended!

Absolutely stunning, sprawling property! Stayed here for two peaceful nights and loved every minute. Our room was very clean, spacious and the bathroom luxurious. The pool was beautiful and perfect for lazing around. Ate at both restaurants- the food and wine were divine. We treated ourselves to the spa for some relaxation and found heaven. Highly recommend- even thought it's further from the centre of town- a car is needed.

What a fantastic place The rooms, the spaces, the food, the staff, the philosophy of service and culture are all amazing Whether u want to visit the fortified town of Momenvasio or mountain bike or swim in the pools, take some cooking lessons, walk around the property, learn the history, purchase and eat the produce grown on the property - well it's all here for you Congratulations team Kinsterna Phil and Venita Burns

Kinsterna !!! Destination on their own. If you have to visit Monemvasia, you go again to stay and enjoy, your accommodation in Kinsterna. Decoration, building facilities, all uniquely careful, dainty. Your stay is traveling. For me it is Tuscany of Greece. Breakfast with delicious handmade , Chef dishes and local product The afternoon you can enjoy your cocktail from Nikos Karitsiotis (raspberry lemon and lavender with gin) .In the evening you can enjoy your meal at the Gourmet Restaurant (do not miss a dessert and a cocktail before) or in the tavern, or in the restaurant. The chef's effort for the gourmet restaurant is satisfactory. In the afternoon after the swimming pool, which really is the ultimate relaxation, enjoy a candle massage or whatever you want. I recommend the candle massage unreservedly. The pool is an ideal place for relaxing, reading your favorite book and enjoying nice, non-alcoholic cocktails or with a bit of local products you see and smell. Enjoy the splendid cool smells of jasmine Pesetakis that will be offered to you by the majestic spa. Enjoy !!!! Kinstern and all of you thank you for the wonderful stay !!!

This is an amazing place. Owners have renovated the old castle with respect to the architectural heritage and operate it with respect to the local culture Its a must visit. We came only for the hotel as its reputation is greatly apprecuated in Greece and it exceeded our expecation. Special mention to the head barman who was creative and passionate about the place and its nature. Small note about the glases in the pool as they are very light and taken away with the wind. Overall amazing. Food is vwry good too not to mention they own olive oil and wine

The Kinsterna Hotel was the ideal place to spend our honeymoon! The staff were all lovely and accommodating, the grounds were gorgeous, the pool was wonderfully inviting (although it does close rather early, at 7pm) the food was delicious and the rooms were beautiful and very comfortable. As you are walking around the premises you can smell the sweet Jasmine and citrus trees and hear the cooing Mourning Doves and humming cicadas. While the hotel is located up in the hills, you are still centrally located for easy day-trip travel. Be sure to take time to walk around Monemvasia and explore the local beaches! We sincerely hope to return to this incredible place someday.

We loved our stay at Kinsterna. It truly is a special place. They have their own goats, sheep and gardens and produce a large amount of the excellent food they serve guests - a true farm to table experience. Everyone from reception to the general manager to the bar and wait staff were exceptionally friendly and very proud of the work they are doing and the job opportunities for locals. A true high point was a cooking class we took with Sous Chef Theodoros. He was a delight, the recipes were excellent and it was fun to sample our cooking while most of the staff stopped by to chat. The activities director was incredibly helpful in the lead up to our stay. We also learned the fascinating story of the local vin santo and brought some home with us. The location is a bit out of town but only a short drive back into town to explore the castle. An excellent example of the finest of Greek hospitality.

A piece of heaven in the Peloponnese. Rustic, understated but five star service and luxury personified. Spent two nights there , would have liked more but it was full due to a wedding party. Will definitely go back again.

Awesome location and views. Fantastic room (Byzantine Suite). Menu first class. Wine list very good but no need to move beyond the House Rose. Mikos (Head Barman) is a wizard with cocktails made to order. Just tell him what ingredients you like and he will make something memorable. Excellent service. Friendly and efficient staff. Definitely returning.

The property is a wonderful renovation of old and new, words don't do it justice. The staff are brilliant and the food is to die of the best breakfasts ever. Secluded location, with lots to explore in the local area.
