Roses Studios
Reviewed 21 June 2013

Me and my girlfriend just got back 2 days ago from a fantastic holiday. We stayed two weeks and Roses Studios and it was all perfect. Manolis who looks after the studios and runs the bat attached to the studios was super nice and very helpful. So was his wife!
We arrived very late, just before midnight, Manolis helped us with luggage, made us food and was very pleasant. The room is small but it was very clean (10/10). We stayed in room 7 and enjoyed the late sunshine on the balcony every day. The beach is 60 seconds walk away and
for me at the nicest part of the resort.
The only thing missing was mosquito nets at the windows.

The pool attached to the bar (you have to buy a drink if you want to use it but one needs to drink anyway) was good as well. We used it occasionally after the beach. Manolis and his family clean the pool religiously.

I know you can perhaps better value for money in Kefalos but if you book last minute and Roses Studios comes up on the top of the listing I would book it again.

I wish Manolis, his wife and their beautiful baby all the best! Keep the good work going!

Room Tip: We stayed in room no 7, no 1 gets a bit noisy sometimes

As a young family on a budget this was the perfect choice. Rooms are basic but very clean and well maintained. I was very surprised to read negative reviews as we had a wonderful time and will return. Pool area is very clean and well looked after and the hosts were extremely welcoming and very family friendly. The bar has a great atmosphere and again Manoli and Sanja were very attentive and laid back.

The accommodation is situated in the quieter part of the resort but with a great pool and the beach a stones throw away really is a perfect location.

Thank you for such a brilliant holiday, we will hopefully see you again soon.

Just coming to the end of my stay at Roses apartments and cannot remember having a more relaxing holiday . The accommodation is situated at the quiet end of Kefalos which suited us fine . We did walk into the centre of the village on a couple of nights along a path which runs next to the sea . The accommodation was just right for us as we spent most of our time either at their excellent pool or on the beach which is just behind. We had the option of booking larger rooms in other venues but rathered the location of roses. There are plenty of excellent restaurants a few doors down and the Dolphin bar at front of accommodation did great snacks for lunchtime. The bar is also a great place to spend an evening with a great selection of good quality rock videos shown each night. I'm really sorry to be leaving but will definitely be back next year !

Very disappointing - after reading some positive reviews we decided to book these rooms. Very small and basic even for Greek standards - and we have stayed in quite a few over the many years of travelling to Greece. The owner Manolis is unfreindly and not at all welcoming, especially if you have any problems he takes them personal and is not very tolerant. Clean rooms but old uncomfortable, shower head broken and would not stay on wall, fridge door wouldn't close. The bar area is ok, good music, but we didn't feel we wanted to stay around because of the unfriendly atmosphere, but I must say Sanja did seem at lot more helpful. Near the beach, but no sea view, only five minute walk to bars and restaraunts. There so many great studios right on the beach if you do a bit more reserch, will definately stay in Kefalos again but unfortunately not at Roses,

On arrival about 12-30 am we stood outside the Dolphin Rock bar as we couldn't see studios in the dark. Sanja came out and took us to the steps of the studios and gave us a key.
The accommodation was very basic and dated and as for sea views i would describe it as you can see the sea!!!!!!!!!!! thro a gap in the trees, i would not call it a view. Road noise is terrible all day and night.
Air conditioning was 6euro's a night but make sure it works before you pay up. First time i switched on it went off after about 10mins. Sanja called out maintenance man next day, after about 6 hrs he turned up and represurised the sytem. i tried to get back 6 euro's from Sanja for the time it was not working but you have no chance of a refund on anything.
Kitchen was very very basic we gave up trying to cook anything on the rings, took an hour to fry bacon, so if you intend to have a self catering holiday forget it. I usually stay in 2 to 3 star accommodation but this was way below that.
The day we vacated our room we asked to hire a room as flight pick up was not till 9-30 pm
we were charged 20 euro's up till 6pm or 25 euro's till 8pm. we paid reluctantly, what a rip off.
Would definately go back to Kefalos not a lot there but very quiet and relaxing but that's the way i like my holiday's, i will be staying well clear of the Roses though.

Room Tip: Don't get rooms 6 or 7 very noisy from traffic and virtually no view of anything. Rooms 1 to 3 h...

My husband and I had a great time at Rose Studios in late May. We were immediately made welcome by Manolis and Sanja who own and run the Studios and the adjoining Dolphin Rock Bar. They were always available if needed and were very friendly and helpful. We often sat at the bar and just chatted like old friends. We felt relaxed and enjoyed the atmosphere. Music wasn't too loud, pool table was free and Manolis does a great "Greek Burger". Accommodation was clean and regularly cleaned, bedding changed etc. Food working area is limited but we did ok. It was good having a security safe in the room for peace of mind, though there's no history of trouble.
Its just a 5 minute walk to the beach and to supermarkets. If we return to Kefalos then we would love to use Rose's again knowing we would be welcomed and looked after like friends by Manolis and Sanja.
