Back to kos again for another fabulous holiday, hotel was clean staff extremely friendly spent a lot of time in the spa with my 2 friends had some great treatments and the staff in the spa are very welcoming and very highly trained have the facial they make you look 10 years younger my friends adored the aromatherapy massage and the Swedish massage go treat yourself. Food was plentiful although not always labelled up and I had bitten into things to find hidden meat not great for vegetarians but still the quality was excellent we did eat a few days but can complain about the food and drink options included. Michael one of the waiters was so hard working in for breakfast around at lunch and dinner and then in the bar after 11 his choice what more can you ask. The beds were very hard but the manager has said he was getting toppers in another review earlier.
The hotel shop was cheaper than the shops in kos and great clothes shoeshine jewellery bought lots of stuff would definitely go back. There was a beautiful white cat who was about to have kittens and the hotel promotes giving to charity to help look after the animals in kos. I wonder if she has had her kittens most of the guests look after her

Stayed at the Carda Beach for 10 days in the middle of May , with the intension of chilling which we did . We got a taxi from the airport (18 euros) and arrived early afternoon , quick and easy check in and within a few minutes of walking to our room our bags where delivered . Rooms where large and modern with a good sized comfortable bed , we asked for extra pillows and they were delivered within an hour. Large bathroom area which had a frosted glass partition , with a wet room style shower which could leave the floor area wet but we just used the bath mat to soak it up. Plenty of storage space for clothes and all of the other bits and pieces , and a safe which is free to use. Large balcony area with good views over the sea and Nissyros in the distance , from the upper floor room. The Hotel is built on the side of a hill , and this could be a problem for people with mobility issues.
The pool area is large with plenty of sunbeds , and we had no problems finding one but some people did feel the need to put there towels out early. It can get a bit windy and the sunbeds nearer the beach get the worst of it , but the wind does help keep you cool. The pool bar was ok , with good service and always with a smile . The beer and wine where very drinkable , but the soft drinks where not the standard we would have expected from a 5 star hotel. They where very sugery and went flat almost as soon as they where poured . I did mention this to the bar staff , and they said lots of other people also complained. Having said that , that is my only complaint about the hotel.
The main buffet restaurant had a good selection of food for all 3 meal times , with fresh eggs , omelettes and pancakes being cooked at breakfast time and meat and fish being cooked at lunch and dinner time. There was also a good selection of other cooked dishes that are regularly replenished , with plenty of fresh salad , soup , breads and fruit.
The general cleanliness of the hotel was very good , the grounds where being continually maintained , and all staff had a greeting for you .
There is a small shop where you can buy gifts, drinks and other holiday essentials and we found the prices generally the same as in the village . You have to go to the Spar to get your pool towels for a 5 euro deposit , but you can change them as often as you liked for no extra charge.
We cant really comment on the evening entertainment as we walked into the village which took about 20 minutes at a stroll . If you plan to do this it is worth taking a small torch, as there are a couple of unlit areas . There are lots of places to eat or just get a drink in Kardamena , where you can get a meal for around 40 euros for 2 people if you fancy a change of scenery .
All in a very good hotel and holiday , they just need to sort there soft drinks out to make it excellent , and waiter service around the pool as we have had in other 5 star hotels.

Room Tip: For the best views, rooms on the higher levels and away from reception . If you have mobility proble...

Just returned had a lovely relaxing time and really loved the hotel we had room on highest level which we found hard going at times but in fairness we didn't ask for a move so own fault really , rooms really clean and mini bar system being refilled was great also no charge for the safe which is unusual in itself , the staff on reception were lovely and always helpful well done can't always be easy for them , Michael was friendly and good service in bar during evening and Stavros and dimitri were good in bar during day , food was plentiful and Chinese and Italian were good too only thing if you went later to eat in main restaurant some food was cold I got meatballs and they were awful but there did seem to be managers assessing this and I think it's just a teething problem but saying that plenty of choices , all in all we had a really relaxing time and if we were guaranteed a low floor room we would be back tomorrow

Room Tip: Avoid high floor if not as fit as you used to be

Just returned from a great week at The Carda Beach. The hotel itself is very nice; clean and modern with spacious rooms in an ideal location. The selection of food in the main restaurant was very disappointing, pretty much the same things for lunch and dinner everyday; we ate out most evenings. The Chinese restaurant however is to be recommended; the food was excellent!
We ate at some very nice restaurants in the town ; Avli ,just off the square, Yiannis and Captains both on the Harbour front.
We hired a car for a day from "International" the company who have a desk in reception. The chap we dealt with was really helpful and knowledgeable. He recommended some places to see and a fantastic restaurant at Camel Beach which has great views.
In our opinion it is only a 5 star because of the Spa facilities. We found the bar staff quite unfriendly;barely a smile,the Gym equipment wasn't maintained very well, attention to detail lacking in the dining room (often running out of coffee cups, glasses etc...) all in all no comparison with other 5 star hotels we have stayed at in the Greek Islands.

Dear Cathy M

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and your feedback. We do appreciate comments from our guests and use this information to improve upon our services and facilities.

I am sorry to hear that you were unhappy with our services. Our team members do make every effort to satisfy guests . This is evident from the overall majority of happy guests who have posted their comments on this site.

At Reception there is a board with all the photos of the Management members so as to be recognisable from every guest thus making it easier to them to get in contact with us for every issue they face during their Holiday.

We could have solved a lot of problems on the spot rather than let them affect your Holiday.

Regarding the gym equipment the get serviced twice a year one of which is mid June. Please accept my apologies in case you faced some issues with them .

All my colleagues join me in wishing you the best and we await your next stay at our hotel.

With our warmest regards from the island of the Sun -Kos-.

Just got back from a week long stay at the Carda Beach and seriously cannot see why some reviews were so negative. We had an amazing time. The rooms were spacious, spotless and modern with bedding and towels changed daily. Food was plentiful, hot and we never had to queue - even at peak times. Loads of room around the pool with sunbeds always available, even late in the day. Ok, the entertainment wasn't the best but the sister hotel was literally a one minute walk away and because they accepted children, the entertainment was non stop there. The only criticism was that the bar closed at 11:00 which does seem a little early but we just doubled up before closing time and drinks were available to buy after this time. Would recommend this hotel to couples who are looking to relax in quality surroundings - very nice indeed.

We got back from Carda beach a few weeks ago after a superb holiday. As two single girls we really enjoyed the peace of an adult only hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Every member of staff went the extra mile to ensure we had a good stay, all queries or assistance given with a smile. The reception team Stefania and Stamita were a pleasure to deal with and so helpful. The standard of accommodation was amazing, very clean and modern. The restaurant food was fantastic with a wide selection to cater for all tastes. The staff in the restaurant always greeted and recognised us Desonia Captain and Stavros Matre-De were friendly and welcoming. The two restaurants Chinese was superb and very large portions cooked by Chinese chefs and the Italian restaurant did great pizzas- the piza chef was very charming.

There wasn't a lot of entertainment in the evenings but we enjoyed the company of the many people we met and Michael behind the bar kept us amused most evenings until the early hours, even letting us take over the music selection- he was a good sport, charming and funny. DImitri looked after us during the day at the pool bar- although he definitely needs a new CD! The only thing I would say which is important is that some basic cocktails should be included as part of the all inc- all ladies want a simple sex on the beach when on holiday and won't cost much more to have available!

Great location to walk into town, it was early in the season so town was quiet but we managed to find a few busier bars and club to dance the night away. The people in Kos in General were lovely all speaking great English, no pushy sales people and very helpful.

We had a couple of days of rain so we took advantage of the spa having 3 treatments each I had 2 Swedish massages and a reflexology very reasonably priced and fantastic masseuses - very friendly informative spa manager who looked after us.

A really great experience and I would definitely return, I've just recommended this hotel to a couple at work. I just hope that with all these great reviews the price doesn't go up! Thanks Carda Beach x x

My gifriend and I have recently returned from a two week holiday at the carda beach and were sad to leave as we had such An amazing time.
The hotel is set in a beautiful location on a beautiful island, a 10 minute walk from the centre of kardamena along the sea front, and it is a lovely walk.
Kardamena itself is really nice, quite quiet in May but apparently the season doesn't officially start until June so if you are hoping for a lively night out maybe go a little later as it was fairly quiet in May, although still a good night out with nice bars and a few clubs.
The hotel is lovely, looks stylish inside and out, there were a couple of minor issues, like if you were to have one of the rooms at the back of the complex like we did it's quite a steep walk and there is only one bar open in the day which is the pool bar, other than that I can't think of anything else to complain about.
All of the staff were friendly and helpful and I would like to mention a couple in particular, Michael in the main bar in the evenings is very friendly, helpful, even offered to take us to our rooms when we arrived at 1.30 in the morning, so a big thanks to him. Dmitris and stavros at the pool bar are also very friendly and all three give good and fast service with a smile. I was a bit unhappy at the fact that dmitris at the pool bar was sacked a few days before we left as he made the holiday in the day time a lot better with his happy charming ways and was always laughing and joking, a very good barman and he will be missed I am sure.
The beach is nice, free Sun loungers, a bit rocky but once your in it's all sandy and is beautiful.
The views from the pool and the hotel on the whole are outstanding over the sea over looking other islands.
The rooms were spacious , clean, a bit dodgy as the bathroom is see through glass, not the toilet but everything else, didn't bother me at all but it may if you are going with kids over 16 or friends. But credit to the maids they were very good, it was always clean. The mini bar is re filled once every 3 days and the water every day.
We also hired a quad and would recommend it, we went to Kos town which took an hour but it doesn't feel like it as the drive is a delight, great views and sunshine, and we also visited paradise beach, would highly reccomend this as it is a beautiful beach, Sandy with clear blue water.
On the whole an amazing holiday, would love to go back one day. Beautiful, relaxing, great weather, friendly staff and a lovely hotel.
Thanks
