We have stayed at Nikos II on 3 occasions and would've returned for a 4th except for the fact we could no longer get the 3 weeks, only 1 or 2 option. Nikos II studios are situated a fair way from the busy village of Kardamena (there is a bus stop right outside the entrance) and therefore are quiet, ideal for older people who prefer a nice relaxing holiday.
The owners are the nicest, friendliest people one could meet and nothing is too much trouble for them, the pool is second to none in Kardamena, extremely clean and surrounded by Hibiscus, Pomegranate and Pineapple Palm bushes and trees, "BEAUTIFUL". The pool snack bar is very well run and spotlessly clean but unfortunately, stops serving food at 5 p.m, although the bar DOES stay open and is ably run by Michael, who's knowledge of music is unbelievable, if anyone wants 'take away' Gyros, Pizza etc, Michael will ring the order through for you.
The studios are, as one would expect in Greece, basic but contain everything necessary for the tourists needs and some are, at the time I type this, under renovation and being updated. The cleaner, a lovely girl, is a complete gem, all rooms are looked at daily, apart from a Sunday, if anyone needs anything all they have to do is ask and it will be supplied.
My friends and I have always really enjoyed staying at this accommodation and we have already booked for next year,(only got home 4 days ago!!)people who stay here seem to return year after year and that certainly wouldn't be the case if it wasn't good, we have made many friends whilst staying here.
As of 2013, George and the family have decided, after much thought, to go independant and this accommodation can be booked by simply visiting www.hotels4u.com, speaking for myself, I couldn't believe the price when I booked, REALLY GOOD DEAL, REALLY, REALLY GOOD DEAL!!
All in all I can't speak highly enough of Nikos II or George, his Mum Coco, and Michael and Manolis his brothers, this is a well run family business and my friend and I find it harder and harder with each year that passes to leave to come home, many tears are shed.
This accommodation is more suitable for the older person who wants peace and quiet although it CAN be a bit more rowdier in July and August!!
If this review has convinced any of you to go to Nikos II and it's before we arrive on 5/9/13 please give the family our love and tell them we'll see them soon. "HAPPY HOLS EVERYONE" Love, Claire & Kath (Cornwall)
p.s don't take my word for the cleanliness of this accommodation, visit www.nikos2kardamena.com and see for yourself.
