My daughter and I booked a last minute deal to this resort in Kos. We wanted a quiet, peaceful break and that is exactly what we got. The resort is about 2 miles from the attractive village of Mastichari down a country road, it is too far to walk, so vehicle hire is almost essential (we hired a small car from the airport), although it is possible to hire bikes and cars on site. The drive to the resort is uninspiring, so we worried what we might find..... but the 'Small Village' was perfect for us. Clean attractive apartment, friendly staff and a lovely pool.
When we arrived late at night, we were exhausted and half asleep. We checked in at Reception, which was quick and effortless. They actually told us we had been upgraded to a better room, one overlooking the sea. We then left our bags with reception and had dinner in the main hotel, which was amazing. We then took a buggy down to our room and found our many bags were already there. The rooms were breathtaking, very spacious and clean. The bathroom was clean and had fresh towels already laid out, the fridge was stocked with cold drinks and the beds were made. The beds were extremely comfortable and we slept well at night. In the morning the sun rises over the main hotel and we had a beautiful view of the sunset from our balcony. Depending on your location it can be quite a hike up to breakfast but it's worth it as the food is 10/10. We were very impressed by the standard in the main restaurant, which is self-serve. They have a huge variety and even the most fussy eater would find something they like. The kitchen and bar staff were incredible and very kind.
There's always something to do, we were certainly never bored. During the day you can eat and drink in any of the 11 restaurants including a pastry corner, a sushi restaurant and a floating island bar. The beach is also very nice although it was a bit crowded and there was alot of litter. There are around 15 pools (all of which are saltwater), and every one of them was big and not too deep, about 1.5m.
Close to Kardemenia town and beach. We went all inclusive and it was great value for money. The meals were themed each night and a great variety and choice for all.
The animation team kept adults and kids entertained.
Thoroughly relaxing and recomend.
What can you say about a family run hotel on the beach with every room having a sea view? The little kitchenette was great for coffee in the morning and breakfasts and the great food was close enough to walk to. If you're looking for the "lap of luxury" go spend your money at one of the all-inclusive resorts and stay by the pool. But if you're into the beach and friendly, helpful staff you have found the right place. About 1.5 k from the congested part of Kardamena, you will have the beach almost to yourself. And the water, crystal clear. Thanks Nikos!
