Reviewed 7 October 2012

Nice and friendly people giving top service. Excellent food. Only about 34 rooms = a cosy atmosphere. Marvellous view, very short walk along the cliff also to the very nice sandy beach by the bus stop. Short way to Pigadia, cheap bus ride and only 10 euros for 2 persons in a taxi home at night. Hire a car, drive 100km and see the whole southern part of the island (don't miss Mesachori!). Go to Olympos by bus and boat. Beds are not much better here than elsewhere in southern Europe, but everything else is :-)

Room Tip: All the rooms have fantastic view of the ocean. If you ask for / get room 204, you get a living room...

We were guests of Apolis hotel from 10/08 to 22/08 2012, and if I could say one word about our stay - just heaven place :)) Best hotel on Karpathos. We had very nice designed double room with terase and breathtaking seview. Room was clean every day and new clean towels was available as well. We asked for dvd player and there were no problem to pluged into our room. Servis on hotel was really on high level, they fulfilled all our wishes and requirments. This family hotel is best place to spend wonderfull holiday incluiding nice beaches, clean sea or relaxing "chillout" pool and of course greek cusine. Breakfast was varied everyday, they changed only few things - most popular stayed, we could recomend "greek bruschetta" with red onions, tomatos, feta cheese and olive oil :)) During day they served delicious snacks, salads or specials of mediterranean cusine. Dinner was unique experience, we could choosed from regul menu or from specials of the day, which were made everyday fresh (thankx to Andy). My secret advise is chicken souvlaki, chicken from own farm and it was really tasty :)) During day you can enjoy realaxing music to chilling by the pool, for dinner time unique traditional greek music to amplify atmosphere. We loved this music and Manolis made special cd for us, so now we can listen greek music all year and it reminds us amazing moments on Apolis hotel. We would like to thank you to all stuff - specially to Eleny, Marcel, Alina, Evy, Andy and of course Manolis. We spent really great time, so it is not surprising that we have engaged there :)) We will definately come once again.

We were excited about this hotel given the stellar reviews it got from other websites only to be very disappointed.
- Our room was not clean, and we could constantly hear chairs moving in our rooms of all hours of the day and night. The room had many dust bunnies on the shelf above the bed. Towels were stained, and the tissues in the bathroom were soggy and old. The room overall had a stuffy scent to it, and a more harsh smell was in the room at various times.
- Breakfast was not appetizing at all. There was constantly flies on all of the food. Foods like cold cuts and milk for cereal was kept hot, where other foods that were supposed to be hot were cold like their sunny side up eggs and bacon. The food does not change day to day.
- Dinner, same comments as breakfast.
- Service was snobby. Woman at the front desk was pushy with rent a car, and other items like renting beach towels day to day. She always made us feel like we were bothering her if we had any questions. One waitress who served breakfast was constantly coughing and sneezing- sick people should not be working, especially in an environment where they are near food and near where people eat.

Overall, I am unimpressed with this hotel- it is definitely not a 4 star hotel. I would say 3 is pushing it. Do not waste your money or time at this place- you are only viewed as a cash cow, not as a guest trying to enjoy vacation. Upside is it is near other nice restaurants and beaches

Dear Guest,

I apologize you had such a poor experience at our hotel. Feedback is very important to us and helps us improve our service and possible flaws guests might have encountered. I regret to hear that the service you received by the Front Desk, the cleaning and Restaurant staff did not meet your expectations. The Front Desk, Cleaning and restaurant Staff often get compliments on how efficient, friendly and helpful they are so I apologize that the same quality service was not extended to you during your stay.

Feel free to contact me personally at info@apolis.eu to discuss some of the matters that made you regret your stay at Apolis Hotel.


Sincerely,

We lived here for holiday, 7 days, in the spring 2011. We had two double rooms with a seaview. the room was clean, simple design, bathtub, large terasse. It was big enough to have an extrabed. At my opinioin The standard in Greece is generally low for european standard. And we always find it hard to find good and dicent hotels. This hotel in Karpathos is really a jewell! Not a five star, but better than a three star - we all liked it very much.
The staff very friendly and serviceminded. One nigth we ate at the hotel and that was good enough. My daghter loved the Gnoccies - try it! The poolside is quite great for swimming and there is also a small childrenpool. Clean and dicent with a wonderful seaview.

The hotel is placed a little bit "off" the activities on the island. We hired a car (cant remember how much we paid but it wasnt expensive - do try to make a bargin, the car-renter was more than willing to lower the original price) and went around the whole island by car. visited beutiful beaches and small villiges. In the evening there is about 4 restaurants nearby to chose between. But we also went in to the bigger village for a couple of nights. Eating in the small harbour was absolutely great - and is recommended! Here you can also find a bigger supermarcet and small shops on the small "walkingroads" above the harbour.

Just down the hill/cliff from the hotel there is a small stone beach with a couple of sunchairs. Its steep down and i didnt feel comfortable to take my 5 year old girl with me. But the water was beautiful and my father often went down in the morning to jump in.
Instead we took a short walk, about 5-10 minutes, to a nice sandy beach that was shallow and perfect for snorkelning and playing with my daughter. To reach the beach you just go out the backside of the hotel, with the pool in your back facing the oscean you take left and start walking. On this sandy beach you can rent a sunchair and there is also 2-3 small restaurant for lunch and icecream.

If we go to Karpathos again we will not look after other hotelchoises.
Apolis is far the best this Island can offer!

The hotel is very clean, the staff wonderful people. Nice rooms with fantastic view. The area is very calm and quiet, and if you want to party take the local bus to Pigadia, only 10 minutes. Return by taxi.
We stayed for one week and enjoyed every minute.

Rooms rather on the small side, very small balcony (expected bigger rooms, definetely not 32 sqm as advertised) but clean with a good bathroom and a very friendly service. Very good breakfast in comparison with what you expect in the Greek islands.Good care of the guests by the owners and everybody there is very friendly.Great cocktails.
Visited the island and I should say that Apolis is rather an exception in a place where upgraded domatia are the norm.The only downside is that the rooms are uphill to the reception and parking so you have to go up and down all the time.

A remarkable place to build life long memories. With the breath taking views, romantic setting, and not to mention top-notch, best of class service, We could not have chosen a better place for my daughter's destination wedding! My daughter resides in San Francisco California USA, and staying at Apolis Hotel was like having her wedding at home away from home! All the wedding quests, who flew in from various places of United States, were very impressed of the Hotel accommodation, food and service. Many thanks to the owners for opening up two weeks earlier to accommodate us and to assist us with the wedding. We will definitely keep this hotel on the top of our list!
