we have been going to kardamena for some 23 years and have many friends with apartments but we wished to surprise our friends and so booked a hotel, looks great out side food good but hard beds also any one with heart problems or breathing do not stay here you are all up a very steep hill to your rooms built on top of a cliff, 90 degrees walk up and in that heat no way no entertainment what so every no atmosphere in the evenings would never stay here again plus not all drinks are in the so called all inclusive
It is absolutely beautiful here. I have visited a few times. enough to know that they have their scale for luggage fixed. You pay much more departing from the island of Kos and the weight is more than the actual weight. When departing from Athens the weight was actual and paid much less. Advice travel lightly they are ripping you off at the Kos airport. The weight isn't off just by a little it is significant.
stayed at carda beach last sept 04, had a fantastic holiday with my boyfriend. liked it so much were going back this year with 10 of our friends.
I love kos, went last year, carda beah is great, iloved it, yeah the rooms are basic like every other hotel in greece, it is about a 15 min walk to town, but during the day you get a great tan doing it, The pool is huge and lovely, Not very busy at all by the pool when we went so great, The weather was lush, not one drop of rain, Would deff go back, and would stay at carda beach again.
my friends stayed here in june and couldn't believe their eyes when they saw their apartment! it smelled like a public toilet and had god knows what spilled on the carpet. the bathroom was unbearable so they were forced to use ours 30mins away for 2weeks instead! wouldn't advise staying here
Myself and three friends have just come back from a last minute week away at the Carda Beach Hotel.I can't imagine that the two male reviewers were even staying at the same place as us!It was calm, tranquil and clean, but basic.It's set in really lovely grounds and has one of the largest pools on the island (so the rep said!).In early May we basically had the whole place to ourselves.The owners were lovely and couldn't do enough to help. The walk into town is no more than a fifteen minute wander and if your too lazy for even that, the bus stops right outside the hotel or there are loads of taxis or hire a bicycle. The town was a bit too much 'Brits Abroad' for me, but just ask Maria (Carda Beach owner) and she can point you in the direction of some really decent and cheap Greek restaurants. Unless you are eighteen and want to replicate Croydon High Street for your summer holidays, I would recommend going right at the beginning or end of the season, otherwise I could imagine it being very full on. Early May was perfect weather without too many crowds.
we are leaving behind our teenage boys to enjoy our first holiday together without them. We are staying at Carda Beach - any advice or comments. We are meeting up with friends and family as a surprise - they are staying at Ino apartments and Phillipos apartments - Does anyone know how far apart they are or where I can find online a map of hotels in Kardamena? Thank you
We had a great time here and we're not dead or boring!!
Location was quiet, just what you need when you're hung over!!
Our room was thoroughly cleaned ever day. All the staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
We can't wait to go back.
stayed here last year, from the outside we first thought wow!!
but once inside we thought yuk!!!great place to stay if youre sad or dead too bloody quiet and too far away away from life.
ABOUT 25-30MIN WALK TO THE MAIN SQUARE.ACCOMMODATION VERY BASIC (AS IN ALL GREEK ISLANDS)LOCATION LETS IT DOWN!
this hotel looks great from the outside,but unfortunatly the inside of the rooms was pretty poor.we only had one electricity socket and the furniture was a bit basic to say the least but we did not let this spoil our holiday.
