the hotel is very good. first of all the staff is excellent. Every question or problem we had ( not that we had that many) was answered immediately, always with a big smile. second, the decor and design of the hotel adds a lot to the friendly and warm atmosphere- modernly simple but with great attention to detail. the rooms are very large and well cleaned, and for those who like to watch the sunset as the sun dissapears in the ocean, the big balconies are a fantastic feature.
we only took breakfast. which was perfect, though more vegetables, maybe a few salads would have improved it. For dinner you can eat in the hotels buffet ( which is cheap only 15 euro and the food looks very good) but we preferred eating outside near the pier (which costs even less)- the town of Pigadia is lovely, don't miss it- lots of bars, restaurants. coffee shops, stores with local products etc. To sum it up, if you are looking for a relaxed and not expensive vacation, in a lovely beautiful island, this is the place to stay in Karphatos!

Room Tip: high h floor is better

First of all, let me make this very clear. This is NOT a 5 star hotel. The only thing that reminds even remotely about a 5 star hotel in this case, is in fact that the staff overall is great. They work hard, they're polite and they're genuine. But that being said this is at most a 4 star, not a 5 star hotel.

Here is a list of our subjective observations and our experience at the Alimounda:

Good/Great:
- Nice pool area, with a simple, but charming infinity pool.
- Pretty decent little private beach area.
- Good breakfast, the same every day, but lots of choices.
- Attentive and polite hotel staff, with great work ethics.

Bad/terrible:
- Especially since this is a new hotel, the rooms (we had a junior suite), are badly maintained. Oil stains, grease and dirt everywhere on the tile floor.
- The cleaning was good the first two days, then it was virtually non-existent. Didn't even change the sheets the last three days, just made the bed. We stayed for 7 days.
- The free wifi, could just as easily been non-wifi. The internet speed made me think of the 90's when we had to use the "ultra fast" dial-up 56k modem. (Even my old 56k was faster than this, no joke).
- The "mountain view". Are you kidding me? A parking lot, and some buildings, and a road? I have a serious problem understanding the logics about this: you pay for a junior suite, the second most expensive room type in this hotel, and you are place on the opposite side of seaview to have the "privilege" to look at a parking lot and some pavement... Go figure.
- The gym.. Most equipment was broken. No free weights, noisy-broken elliptical machines. Could not even do a full body workout in this little gym.

To end of this review with something less cranky, we would acknowledge one particularity person from the staff who in our eyes, was a true professional: "The lifeguard/poolguy".
He had an incredible eye for detail and was always present when help was needed. I'm sure everybody at the pool and beach area felt extra safe because of him. He was very secure in his work, and met every single hotel guest with a smile and charm without being tacky.

Room Tip: Do whatever you can to avoid the "mountain view" side. The only thing you see is a parking...

Alimounda Mare in Karpathos is a really nice hotell perfectly located just a short walking distance to the town. The room we had was modern, enough in size to accomodate 3 people. AC is included as well as soap, schampoo etc. There is also a free safty box and a small refrigerator. The beds are really comfortable (not hard as rocks as it often us) and you will sleep perfectly. The pool area i really nice and the infinity pool is fronting the beach. There are free sunbeds by the pool as well as by the beach. If you are late sleepers then it can be a challenge to find free sun beds. The part if the beach that is in front if the hotell is ok but very rocky entering the water but if you just walk 75m to the right the rocks is replaced with sand. The staff in the hotel is really service minded at all times. The breakfirst has a quite wide variety of both hot and cold. They will make you your own choice of omelette etc. The only thing missing partly is that it could be more fresh fruit and vegetables. We only eat lunch at the snackbar and not the buffe at the main resturant and they had a good selection of dishes at ok prices. Wifi us not included in the room rate but is free in the public areas. There is also a small minimarket, pool table, free parking and spa section in the hotel. The small gym however does not meet expected standard. The cardio machines was ok but not the gym equipment for weigth training. No free weigths at all and only one combination machine that was partly broken, this was a real disapointment. When booking room make sure you get one with seaview otherwise you can end up with a room on the backside. The only thing we had an issue with was the cleaning of the room but that was corrected when we told the reception. You also have free pool towels that you can change when ever you wish. I highly recommend the hotel so if you go there you will have a really nice stay.

We really had a super time at the hotel and although we have no complaints in fact only wonderful things to say about the staff and the cleanliness and hospitability there are a number of things that can be improved. The wi-fi is not good, the TV behind the mirror is awful as you cannot see see it unless you darken the room. The waiters and the service in the dining room is amazing but there could be the service for receiving cappucinno or esspresso!
All in all we had a wonderful stay and thank you to all the staff.

Room Tip: Frontal sea facing room if you want more privacy.

Hotel Mare Hotel Alimonda great .. still have a lot to improve and streamline, but what makes it great it is his staff. Cleaning ladies, opens doors, front desk staff and especially the wait staff at the hotel. Especially note the waiter giorgos chloros humor, courtesy and kindness does a wonderful job! Malawi everyone like him ..
The hotel should streamline things: for example with the legend at the food put a picture of the animal it cooked. So it's easier for guests diners. Also bath towels to the pool, have the pool and down at the spa.
In the dining room we lacked espresso machine Kfotzino etc. as there almost every hotel.
Sorry, we enjoyed our stay there, we were there for a whole week when Israel fierce war .. peace, kindness and friendliness of the staff warmed our hearts.
