“Basic isolated place”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

It's a small hotel in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by farmland and fields. It's only 200 m from an empty stretch of sea shore, sandy but with rocks. There are a few tents and beds on the beach (free). Luckily, you can travel elsewhere by bus/car from this hotel, and there is a small convenience store within walking distance.
The rooms are very basic: whitewashed walls and wooden pieces of furniture. Bathroom facilities are rather primitive, too. No electric appliances whatsoever.
Breakfasts are disgraceful, because, as they say, the owner is very greedy. The Hungarian staff are slow to replenish scarce dishes (namely: scrambled eggs, sliced tomatoes, 1 cheese, 1 "ham", milk, coffee) in time. The pool bar offers only booze and sandwiches after 7 p.m.
The hotel owner (although married) is VERY friendly to certain single ladies (if you know what I mean) and offers "free" rides to thermal springs (with strings attached, of course).
Air conditioner should be additionally paid for, and the wi-fi, too.

Room Tip: Mountain view rooms have better ventilation due to wind

My husband and I stayed on a weeks holiday here and loved it. The family was very accommodating and friendly. The rooms were basic but clean with lovely views of the pool, sea, and mountains. We liked being walking distance from the hustle of Kardamena. We'd walk there in the evening for dinner (20 minute leisurely stroll) and take a taxi or bus back. Some nights we walked back, depended on how much wine we had with dinner:) We did eat at Evripides Village on BBQ night and it was good value, with local entertainment. There always seemed to be enough sun beds at the pool and at the private beach. There were some creepy crawly's but that's Greece. We kept the air-conditioning on and never saw any in our room. We heard some guest say they had them, but I suspect they weren't using their air-con. I'd stay here again and I'd recommend this property to friends and family.

Visited the island of kos in June and stayed at the Evripides Village. Very beautiful hotel . The rooms are very nice and the views of the sea and mountains are magnificent. Really relaxing place , large swimming pool and beautiful beach at the bottom of the road with many sunbeds and umbrellas . People here are very friendly and make you feel very welcome. The bbq in the evenings on tuesday and fridays is fantastic. I really enjoyed my stay here .

My family just returned from holiday and we were very pleased with our stay. My two young children enjoyed the very large pool area and the bbq nights. The room was very spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed the short walk to the sea and the frequent bus pick ups from the hotel to the town were convenient. Friendly staff very accommodating. We were very pleasantly surprised. We are planning to go back again.

This is the second time i stayed at the Evripides village. I first stayed here in 2011and had a fantastic time . This time around was even better. They have made a lot of changes since the last time we were here. The rooms are very nice with flat screen tvs, the restaurant in the evening has a large buffet with many different foods to choose from and is very delicious. BBq takes place twice a week by the swimming pool with live music and dancing . Everyone is super friendly and makes you feel at home . Me and my wife have traveled to many different places, but something about kos and this hotel makes us always want to return here. . We are comfortable here and always have a great holiday. Great hotel I highly recommend to everyone and i am looking forward to returning to the Evripides Village very soon.
