Konstantinos Palace
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 January 2012

My girlfrind and I visited Konstantinos in june, 2010. We stayed for 14 days. We were looking for a relaxing holyday, which we got at Konstantinos and in Karpathos. Konstantinos is perfectly located at the beach. The hotel is a short walk from the center of town were the atmosphere is nice and quiet. The best place to stay in Karphatos.

Definetly not a 5 Star hotel!! More like a 3* !!! , Food was average, room was ok, balcony was a bit small, Definetly not worth the price paid. Karpathos is a beautiful island, well worth visiting with beautiful beaches and restaurants. Definetly visiting again but not staying at this hotel again.Had a few issues but management did not help or care to speak to us throughout our stay!!

Konstantinos Palace is a new hotel built on the very edge of Pigadia bay. Location is excellent - it's still within walking distance of Pigadia town (about 20 minutes on foot to town center) but in a beautiful, quiet spot on the beach away from the noise and built-up residential areas.

The hotel is very modern and the layout is well thought out. Pretty much all the rooms have at least a side view of the sea. There is a pool on the rooftop and a much bigger one on the terrace toward the beach. Service is very good. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are cleaned daily and all the basic commodities are available (shampoo, bath gel, beach towels, sun beds & umbrellas etc.). As for the rooms themselves, they are nicely furnished with a big bed, TV, spacious bath and large balcony.

Food is for the most part excellent, organized along the lines of a self-service buffet. Breakfast is more or less always the same but the selection is huge so it is not difficult to pick something different every day. Dinner is by all means excellent, fresh and varied - mostly Greek and Italian/Mediterannean cuisine with an occasional barbeque.

The area around the main pool is nice for sitting down and having a drink in the evening. The beach is absolutely terrific. Fine sand, there are plenty of sun beds and umbrellas. No other hotel in Pigadia has a comparable beach access - Konstantinos has the advantage of superior location because its seafront is well away from the nearby densely built-up residential areas and hotel resorts.

There are many other facilities: playground for children, tennis and basketball court, sauna, beauty center and a nice gym with two stationary bikes, two treadmills, an elyptical machine, sit-up benches, dumbbells and a multipurpose machine for strength training. So there is always something to keep you occupied.

Having just returned from a week on Karpathos I believe this was the best vacation I have ever had. Konstantinos Palace may not be a 5-star hotel by somebody else's standards but it certainly is a 5-star hotel by what you can expect on Karpathos and elsewhere in the Eastern Mediterannean. I never really felt anything missing. The only downside I can think of is internet access, which is not cheap (starting at 2 EUR per 30 mins). Free Wi-Fi in the rooms would be a nice touch. But apart from that I enjoyed my stay very, very much.

In any case, Karpathos is a beautiful island, still not too crowded (at least in September). A perfect spot for enjoying the sunny weather and crystal clear sea and forgetting about all the everyday stress.

We just got back from this great holiday, the hotel might not be a 5star but certainly a good 4 star. The satff could not have been nicer so friendly and helpful. Both breakfast and dinner had a very good choice of food and was constantly being replaced with freshj things.
The room and balcony were a little small but we didn't spend that much time in room...who does on holiday? and the sea view was fantastic we saw the sunrise every morning.

Room Tip: room 103, 203, ect are smaller as is balcony

This hotel as i read is the only on Karphatos with 5 stars, but it does not worth it. Ok, the service is vera good but it may vary depends on the staff working on the exactd day. The food is average, very adoptaed to many Italians who are spending their hopidays here. We are missing more Greece cousine, more fresh or griled fish... It would be also nice to preapare some theme dinner.
The rooms are very clean, very big and most of them have ocean view. You can also loan ypur own towel and changed it daily.
But this is Greece - you can seat near the pool the whole day and anybody cpme to ask you would you drink or eat something...
My kids can spend their time in swimming pool but there are no any other activity organized for them.
Ok, I can recommend thios hotel but do not expect the quality of 5 stars hotels around the world.

We are experienced travellers and have been to many 5 star hotels around the world and this is not a 5 star in any way.
We stayed 14 days at Konstantinos Palace for leisure. We had booked our trip thought Wing. We were picked up from the airport in a bus, which was not so bad. The hotell at first glance didn't look so bad. Great locatin with a well developed beach are with snackbars, umbrella with wooden sun beds and shower. To my surprise the room was tiny! We had booked a rom for 3 persons as we has a teenager with us. We got room 309 which is the smallest room in the whole building!! (i saw the layour of the hotels rooms on the door) There was a queen size bed with a armchair(!) which they had pulled put to make the mallest bed ever! My poor teenager said it was better sleeping on the floor. I went down and complained as i had specificaly booked a room with for 3 person. The receptionist smiled at me and said that this was a room for 3 people??!!! I asked for the neighbouring room as i had seen it has a single bed and a queen bed, much more suited for us then the 8m2 little room they had sqeezed us is. Or any other room for that matter. I was met with a fake smile and blank empty eyes. Needless to say I was furious! Not a good start on our vacation. They advertise clean rooms, which was true. Bathrobes and slippers, which we never saw anything of. The bathroom was a decent size but they keep giving us conditioner instead of shower get. What do i need 5 conditioner for when i don't even get shower gel or shampoo? Towels were noce and frothy. Watch out for leakage in the bathroom. The balcony (ours) were small and places in suck a way as to display us for all the other people on other balconies to view. No privacy. But there was a magnificentview to the sea.
The interior of the room was tasteful. But the carpenting bad. there were penn marks of "309" everythere. As if they marked the furnitures and forgot to take it off. Gave the room a very amateur look, which was sad.
We were on half board. Breakfast the same every day. So after 1 week we stopped eating breakfast inn. Dinner was varied bit after 14 days i was glad of eating something else.
The pool are nice. But many younger kids splashing around making it difficult to have a swim or sunbathe dry by the pool. And soooo noisy.
The staff by the poolbads and the cleaning ladies as well as the janitor were all very nice and helpfull. Waiters were from all different nationalities which was a nice touch as you could find yourself speaking to them in your own language. Most of the time i asked them for tips of where to go. They are much more knowledgeable then the receptionists which didn't even know there was a big museum in the middle of town.!!
Ps , if you want to visit the other beaches, make sure you have a good car, the roads there are suicide.
