I had a great time, and Sophia the cleaner was the friendliest woman alive! She did a fantastic job of clearing up after us and even folded our clothes!! The apartments were right by Bar Street which meant that walking to the bars was easy, and stumbling home was too! Air conditioning was available for 50 euros which I felt was rather extortionate, however with the door open it was easy to get a nice cool breeze for free! Being on the beach front was a real advantage and meant that it was possible to get a lounger everyday. However the beach futher along was much nicer and there were lots of rocks which cut all of our feet when we went swimming, the noise of the sea when intoxicated is also slightly nauseating. The apartments themselves were simple, but had everything you need. All in, I had a wonderful holiday and have even been considering returning to Kardamena and staying the the same place again!XxX GrAcEy XxX
the emiliana was great for us last year and we hope to go again this year as well! its not manned and its great cause its just off the main strip just 2 minutes walk so you can party or get some peace!
The apartment was very clean and the views are fantastic, with a small private beach fiercely defended by a very delightful man. Be careful when entering the water, the rocks are very sharp!! My foot is still healing after one week!! We were pleasantly surprised by how quiet the apartments were, though not far from Bar Street and the local nightlife (which is great by the way). We only had a couple of nights when we were awakened by the sounds of those coming home at 5 or 6 am!! They were soon tucked up in bed and sound asleep. Sofia cleans the apartment every day (excluding Sunday), she speaks little English, but does a great job. I recommend tipping her at the end of your stay. Sofia and her husband?? were great on the day of check out, he helped carry the bags down the stairs. They were very thankful and waved goodbye to us from the balcony. For 2 stars this is a great place with friendly people. I would recommend Emiliana to both young and oldish.
The apartments are very basic but also very clean. The location is excellent - right on the beach and just a couple of minutes walk from all the main facilities (bars, shops and restaurants) - yet still quiet in the early hours. This is a very English resort - it could be anywhere in Greece, Spain etc. really. We're glad we hired a car and got to see the rest of the island.
Just got back from staying at the Emiliana Hotel at Kardemena in Kos Greece and had a great time!! I went with another mate!! Im 21 and my mate is 22 and it was great!! Especially for the nightlife you are spoilt for choice.. The Hotel itself is pretty basic but is kept clean every morning by Sophia who does not speak much English but such a lovely lady who kept our room very tidy and organised.. So when you visit make sure you say hello to her from me!! ha! The hotel is smack bang on the beach.. and about a couple of minuites walk to the main bars on bar street and all the resturants etc.. We went this year from the 2nd Aug and got back today on the 9th and it was sunny everyday!! In the day we chilled out on the beach and at night we partied hard ha!! I will have to say that you will need to watch out for the beach as it is very rocky and i did get cut on my feet a few times.. but dont let that put you off as you can hire out a lilo or take your own with you so you can float on the water.. You also do have to pay to use the sun beds which normally cost about 5 euros for 2 people at the most and that includes the hire of a lilo aswell.. The situation if the Emiliana hotel is perfect if you want to get some rest as its not slam bang right near the pubs and clubs.. I have to say this holiday has to have been one of the best i have ever had.. everyone is friendly and just chilled.. I must reccomend to all you clubbers out there to go to the starlight nightclub when they have there foam party because it is absolutly awsome!! Probably the best night ive ever had!! It will cost you 20 euros to get in per person but it is well worth it!! I would definitly come back again as we made friends with loads of people.. If you want to have a clubbing holiday i would certainly reccomend Kardemena.. Try walking through bar street without getting stopped by someone getting you into there bar etc.. I bet you cant do it!! lol
HI WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE CAN TELL ME IF THE EMILIANI I ARE MANNED APARTMENTS OR NOT! KINDA HOPING NOT AS PAST FEW YEARS WE HAVE STAYED IN APARTMENTS WHERE WE ALWAYS GET MOANED AT FOR MAKING NOISE AND YOU CANT EVEN INVITE ANY OF YOUR MATES BACK IF THEY DONT LIVE THERE WHICH SUCKS!! A HOL IS FOR FUN!! SO IF ANYONE CAN LET ME KNOW ID BE GRATEFUL!!
Me and five friends have just come back from the emiliana and it was brilliant really clean and not too out of the way infact it was literall two minuits from the excellent night life i would deffinately stay there again. You literally walk out of the front door and youre on the beach it's great!!!!!!!!!
My favourite place to stay in Kardamena!
very nice apartments with great views over the sea, because,its at the end of the resort its nice and quiet except for the JMC Reps in the next apartment block
i am looking to stay at the emiliana hotle and wondered if there were any opiions of the studios
