“Return Visitor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

I usually stay at Ilias Studios just around the corner, which has no pool, so whenever I am in Kardamena (11 visits so far) I always come to Philippos and spend my days by the pool.

We are always greeted warmly and made to feel welcome. The pool and surrounding area is always very clean, including the loungers.
The food and drinks available in the snack bar are reasonably priced and we often have breakfast and lunch here.
There is a pool table inside when you need to seek shade which is good fun.

In terms of location, Philippos is right near the beach and some local shops, and only a short walk into town for restaurants and bars, yet is far enough out that during the day it's reasonably quiet, perfect for lazy chilled out days.

Philippos and Anna are a lovely couple and nothing is too much trouble. The pool and snack bar are most definitely worth a visit (you'll never want to leave!)

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

We have just returned from a weeks break staying at Philippos Apartments, 14-21st Sept 2013.

Firstly, the weather was great, 28deg everyday with a welcome breeze on most days. The sea was warm and Philippos' pool (freshwater) was perhaps slightly cooler but perfect to cool down & relax in. The pool area is great, lots of sunbeds & umbrellas and plenty were vacant each day we were there. You can eat at the pool, a full breakfast / snack menu is available together with all your soft and alcoholic drinks. There's a pool table too. A full english with toast, juice and tea was 6.5 euro, good it was too, well worth it!

We took an apartment which is 2 rooms, one has a pair of single beds in and the other has a pull out double sofa-bed in the kitchen area. There is a seperate shower room / wc. Perfect for a small family or a couple who get up at different times, you can get up and have a shower, make a drink and sit on one of the 3 balconies (we had a corner apt') without disturbing your sleeping partner :)

The apartment was clean and kept clean throughout our stay with adequate storage for a couple of weeks of clothes. The kitchen area was basic but that was expected, there is a fridge and a portable 2 ring electric hob and an assortment of crockery, pans and cutlery. You won't be cooking a 3 course meal here! but you could do some basic stuff with some imagination. I'm sure Philippos would go out of his way to provide anything that wasn't there within reason. On the subject of Philippos, the man is a gem, hardworking and attentive. We had a late flight coming home so he allowed us to store our bags safely in his back room for the afternoon while we enjoyed ourselves for the remaining time and then when we asked for him to book us a taxi he wasn't having any of it and took us to the airport himself, service doesn't get much better than that!

Location wise, it's a 10 min walk to the main square in Kardamena where you have more bars and restaurants than you can shake a stick at and no more than 10 mins from the airport by car. Being that the apartments are at the end of the town it was quiet and there was no problem sleeping.

No hesitation in recommending and we will definately be returning customers.

If you read this Philippos - thank you once again.

Yamas!

Other reviewers have said it already and I do share their opinion - this is a great place to stay in Kardamena. It is located at the quieter end of the village, stone's throw away from the sea. Everything you might need is within the walking distance. The swimming pool is excellent with plenty of sunbeds. Service is second to none. Philippos and his lovely wife Anna are always willing to go the extra mile to do whatever is possible to make your stay truly memorable.

Anna, Philippos, ευχαριστώ πολύ!

We stayed here for our honeymoon back in 2010 and had an excellent time.
Philippos is a real frriendly owner and is very helpfull.
The accommodation is really nice and very close to the beach at the quieter end of the village.
A nice swimming pool with plenty of sun beds, and an excellent snack bar.
An ideal place for families,friends,couples,and solo travellers if you want the quieter end of the village.

We are experienced travelers who are difficult to surprise, but Philippos' studios proved to be one of the best places we have stayed at. Its location a few yards away from the beach, within a short walk from the center of Kardamena, and at the same time at a quiet place away from the tourist crowds is unbeatable. It's a very clean, thoroughly maintained property with a crystal clear pool overlooking the sea and very friendly staff. Most importantly, Philippos is a truly hospitable owner who is always there to help you and really goes out of his way to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. He treats his customers as personal guests -- a feature which is hard to find in today's hospitality business. Thank you, Philippos!
