Pilini doesn't have safety deposit boxes, but trust me, you won't need one there! The little old lady who owns the place cleans the room herself and she's lovely. I've been there 5 years in a row and she leaves sweets and fruit in room for us and everything. It's awesome! Across the road is a restaraunt called posidonia, Ran by a guy called Tony and his family, excellent service and fantastic food. We eat there every night whilst we are over there. Also Tony's brother runs a bar down by the harbour near Macdonalds, also very excellent. Awesome family. Just be aware that Tony runs round his restaraunt and likes to drop his tray on the floor at unexpected times. Scared the c**p outta of me at first but used to it now. (And he walks round with his guitar and sings) All in all, eveytime I come to Kardamena, I love it!
Have been to these apts last 5 years - Excellent.
This being my 4th year in Kardamena, I found Pilini one of the better basic appartments, clean, quiet, and the old couple who run it very friendly.
Just going thru comments on apartments and found that my previous comments had not given this place a rating - I must have done something wrong so I have entered this to try and remedy it.
Can't fault the apartments- only downside I can think of is the view over the car park.
Can't be that bad - we've just booked for 3 weeks in the same place for 2005 - and no it wasn't buy two weeks and get one free - we've paid for three weeks... that is how much we enjoy Kardamena - and we aren't young club goers.....
We stayed in a 2 bed apartment for the last 2 weeks in June 2004. It was basic but very clean - even had a kettle!! Balcony to both bedrooms - view over pot-holed car park which wasn't very scenic. Location was good for access to the quieter part of the beach and the Chrisopoulous and Posidonia restaurants (both good value food/service) - but still only a couple of minutes walk to the action at night. Was noisy when England got knocked out of World Cup - but otherwise quiet. On-site family owners were great. Would stay there again.
I'm going there summer 2004 (June 17)and I want to know if there is a handrail on the staircase leading to the upstairs apartments?
Any other comments on accommodation would be welcome. Thanks
