Kavos Bay Seafront Hotel
Ranked #10 of 14 Agia Marina B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 August 2011

Listen to the quiet, inhale the sea air, and embrace the warmth of instant friendship. That's what this lovely small hotel is all about. Here you have a retreat that lives up to its website promises. Family hospitality is unmatched. Views from each room straight on to the Aegean are unmatched, and if it's too hot for you, simply switch on the air conditioning or walk 100 meters and plunge into the sea. As for hospitality, I arrived during Independence Day weekend for Americans and dined on celebratory hot dogs and hamburgers that evening. In the morning I awoke to french toast followed, the next day, by pancakes, all topped off with maple syrup. A classy touch, and while not something that could be expected all the time, it shows what a thoughtful hosts Irene, Nikkos, and Anthula are. On another day, a Danish gentleman, who had speared an octopus, enjoyed it cooked to perfection that evening. You will not find such warmth and caring at the big hotels, or, for that matter, any of the other establishments on the island, but if you are looking for something small, quiet, and welcoming, this is the place. Yes, it's a short hike to town, but still close to everything you would want, which, in my case, was good food, peace, and family.

Room Tip: All rooms look straight out at the Aegean.

A great place to relax, fabulous views, good food, friendly people. A must to visit is the temple of Aphaia which is a short bus journey from Agia Marina. Check bus times with the bus driver as the published timetable is not always reliable.
The town of Agia Marina is just a short walk from the hotel, and has a good beach, lots of inexpensive restaurants.
A truly wonderful holiday experience.

Room Tip: All the rooms have sea views

Because we live in Athens, we searched for a hotel out of any city center on the island. We found this one, near Agia Marina, on a beautiful spot near the sea. It's a small hotel, with simple rooms (and superior views), and a very nice people who are running the place. They love this place just as much as their guests, and that's what makes it something special.

The hotel has their own beach, where you can swim, snorkel, sunbath or hide in the shadow under the trees during the warmer hours of the day. If you want, they bring you to the city center of Agia Marina, but you can also walk. The nature is beautiful.

What is also very good, is the food. It's all local, made from fresh ingredients and lot's of passion. ;) It's better than the food you get in most taverna's. And again, a seat on a terrace with a beautiful view on the open sea, you can't get that anywhere else.

No, this is not a hotel for party animals. But if you like quiet and nature, just pack a good book, walking shoes and snorkeling gear, and go on a trip to Kavos Bay.

I returned to Kavos Bay after having been here three years ago. Coming here for Easter Week was like coming home to family. I not only had a great Easter, complete with skewered lamb and all the trimmings, but the entire week was a special treat. . The rooms here have a special old world charm along with a private balcony only meters from the Mediterranian. If you are looking for a place to relax, this is it!!! Thanks to Irene, Nikos, Antula and all of the family for helping me renew my spirit in your very special place. Definately great value for location, atmosphere., accomodation, view and friendliness!

This is a secluded location, so if you want party party and mod cons this is not for you. I wanted a break from London and a chance to catch up on some reading, catch some rays, and do some swimming and walking. As a solo female traveller I also wanted somewhere that felt safe and Kavos Bay was perfect. Nikos and Irini and their daughter made me feel very welcome. They were always charming and entertaining and had time for a chat and were able to give well informed advice. It may be wise to hire a scooter or car if you want to explore the island, but Nicos gave me lifts to various places, such as the gorgeous Temple of Aphaia. Breakfast and other meals were cooked by Irini and were utterly delicious.

We had 13 family and friends from 4 different states descend on Kavos Bay for 5 nights for a family reunion/50th wedding anniversary celebration. We had an age range of 9 to 71 and I was concerned about finding a place that would meet the expectations and needs of such a varied group. Kavos Bay exceeded them all! From the time we booked until we were dropped off at the ferry, Irene and her family were responsive, helpful and caring. The swimming and snorkeling right off the rocks by the hotel was great fun. The location is a bit of a walk from town, but the walk is beautiful and when we didn't feel like walking, Irene and her family were more than happy to drop us off or pick us up. They happily accommodated all of us on a ride up to the Temple of Aphaia as well as the numerous trips to town and restaurants. In addition to the beautiful, quiet setting, we were able to see the Milky Way from our balcony! I found the rooms to be basic, but clean. When a problem was encountered with one of the AC units in a room, Irene was quick to respond and ensure that we were comfortable and happy. They were even kind enough to set up a TV out on the patio so that we could all watch the World Cup under the stars and while listening to the lapping waves of the Aegean.
In addition to the wonderful breakfast that was included each morning complete wth Nikos bringing fresh, warm rolls from the bakery, we ate two dinners at the hotel and they were delicious. I can't believe how much I ate! We tended to find the food at other restaurants lacking when compared to the food prepared by Irene and her sister. Having a chef in the family, food tends to play an important role in our travels and Irene's restaurant tips and Kelly's advice about pairing the ouzo with octopus gave us the inside scoop to make the most of our meals.
Having started our trip on the island of Tinos, we felt we had the best of both worlds at Kavos Bay in being able to experience another island that was still very Greek, but this time we had the benefit of english-speaking hosts who we could understand and ask questions. The Krassas family really is what made this place so special and the reason that my family and I felt a little teary-eyed as we waved to them from the ferry and saw them out on the balcony waving farewell to us. All 13 of us were reluctant to leave and hope that we will be able to visit again.

I attended a conference hosted at this hotel and it was a disaster. The hotel is very basic. The rooms as small and the furnishings are rustic. The bathrooms are disgusting and very unsanitary. The eating area has a pleasant view but the tables and chairs are less than comfortable. The food was very good but that was not enough to make up for the very unpleasant living and working conditions. The hotel is totally unsuited for a conference: no facilities for doing presentations. When a problem occurred about bills, the owners of the hotel became antagonistic and threatened to call the police. Several of my colleagues ended leaving early, in tears. I highly recommend avoiding this hotel.

Isn't it strange how out of 11 reviews, it's only these 2 that are so extremely negative? The truth of the matter is that these are 2 sisters from Canada, together with a couple from New Zealand, the publishers of the review “Shoddy and out of date” who attended an educational seminar, which was being hosted at Kavos Bay. At the end of the seminar they decided that the seminar did not meet their expectations, so they wanted to get their money back. Since the seminar fees were not refundable through the seminar director, they wanted to leave the hotel without paying for their bill “accommodation and meals for 5 days”. This of course was not acceptable by the hotel, as their hotel bill had nothing to do with their seminar fees. We actually had to say that we would call the tourist police, as they were determined to leave without paying. Only because we insisted on getting paid, they wanted to get revenge, so they threatened us by saying, that they would write bad reviews about our hotel on trip advisor and not only. There were 14 participants at this seminar and it was only these 4 that created the problem. We as a company have filed a law suit against these 4 guests for blackmail and for giving our hotel bad reputation with the attempt to get money. I would advise these guests to reconsider keeping their false reviews online as this is a very serious matter and we have eye-witnesses that will testify to all this. They should be ashamed of themselves for lying like this. Even though the entire cost for their seminar was fully paid by their school or university, they obviously wanted the refund to end up in their own pockets.
