Having got back from Karpathios Studios I felt that I needed to come on here and defend the place. Yes, it is basic, but to be honest for how much you pay you shouldn't be expecting the Ritz!
We stayed in one of the "cells" which I was dreading but turned out to be lovely. It was a basic room with 2 mattresses on a raised platform (quite traditional for Greece) which were really comfortable. The room also had a small table with 2 chairs, a wardrobe, mini kitchen with kettle, toaster and 2 ring portable hob. There was also a much needed fridge and crockery and cutlery- more than adequate for our needs. The bathroom was a wet room with shower, toilet and sink, which was great. All the rooms have air con but this is an additional charge and in mid July, is definitely needed (100 euro for 2 weeks). Outside there was a shared balcony with our own table, benches and a washing line. The views from our room were amazing! Due to its locations you get a perfect view over Pefkos, out to sea and even over to Turkey!
The pool area was beautiful, again complete with the fantastic views. There are more than enough sun loungers all of which came with padding which made sunbathing much more comfortable. The pool area was very clean as was the rest of the resort and rooms.
The pool bar was great, it has some of the cheapest drinks in Pefkos so you can't go wrong. Also did some tasty bar food, and huge portions.
There are minimal staff at Karpathios Studios but they were all very friendly and did what they could to help. We had our room cleaned every day and a change of linen and towels several times while we were there.
There were some issues with ants, cockroaches, etc but to be honest we didn't have any problems in our room. We took ant spray with us and only had to use it a couple of times, and that was only one the one or two ants in the room- definitely nothing to complain about.
The studios are really close to the main bars and restaurants in Pefkos, although the steep hill up to the studios is a bit of a killer, but hey, it helped burn off the calories consumed in beer!
If you are wanting a cheap, basic holiday with fantastic views and a great location then this is the place for you.
