The Bar Pub - (Bars in Kardamena)

Vicky & paul C           

Rio Bar was the best bar in Kardamena, the staff were excellent, and the people we met in the bar were excellent and the DJ well what can I say...... FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We definatly recommend going there.
We will be going back every year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Camelot - (Restaurants in Kardamena)

Vicky & paul C           

Everytime me and my husband walked past we got hassled to go in........ one day we decided to give in and go in, and well we were so glad we did we ended up going there the following night again plus two further nights.

The food was excellent, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the mashed potato was the best i've ever had.
Can highly recommend this resaurant.
I did find a baby crab in one of my mussels, which was a shock when I bit into it, but no harm done, I thought it was quite funny afterwards - well the chef can't check them all - can he!!!!

Avli - (Restaurants in Kardamena)

Vicky & paul C           


We walked past every night.......... and decided to go in eventually, food brilliant, service great (apart from when we sat inside) it was a bit slow, price very reasonable.
A romantic style restaurant with some excellent greek dishes to try.
Can highly recommend this one.

Zouboulia Studios - (Accommodation in Kardamena)

Vicky & paul C           

This was our first year in kardamena, from some of the stories we heard this was a great apartment compared to some of the others..............

Apartment was very basic as with all greek apartments, but very clean, our room was cleaned most days exept sundays (which is understandable), bedding was only changed twice.
Pool area was clean and pool food was good, staff very friendly and helpful. A bit disapointing that you have to pay for sunloungers at your own pool!!! 2.5 euro's per person but you get a free drink with that!!!
Me and my husband were worried about noise when we went there after reading some of the things we read, but we never heard the cats, we only heard the church bells once and that was in the afternoon, never got woken up by noise in the night.
Considering the price of these apartments - the accomodation was brilliant all round.

June - (Best Time to Visit)

Vicky & paul C           

We went for the first two weeks of June this year, it was busy but from what everyone says not as busy as it gets. We noticed it getting busier on our last couple of days!!!!

Weather was still hot enough and only had one and a half cloudy day's. Sunlongers mostly empty on the beaches aswell. The good thing was it wasn't too hot at night.
Best holiday we have ever had, and we definatly chose the best time to go, before it gets too busy.

Zia Sunset - (Places to Visit on Kos)

Vicky & paul C           

Zia was lovely, our friends hired a car so went during the day / early evening, it is well worth a visit some fantastic views, I would save you shopping for when you go there as some things are a lot cheaper than the towns (i.e olive oils, soaps, rugs, football shirts etc).

Next year we will definatly go up in the evening to watch the sunset and have a meal.

Kardamena - (Exchange Rates on Kos)

Vicky & paul C           

We were worried there wouldn't be many places to exchange travellers cheques.... well we were plesantly suprised as on our way to the square there were three places to chose from and because we had euro travellers cheques it didn't matter what the exchange rate was anyway - they charged us 1 euro for a 50 euro cheque or 2 euros for a 100 euro cheque..... quite reasonable we thought, and a lot safer than taking cash.

Remeber the exchange shops close during the day for a couple a hours!!!!! They don't close in the eveing until about midnight.

Lido Waterpark - (Kos Excursions)

Vicky & paul C           

Brilliant - this was new this year, our friends hired a car and we spent the whole day there, (excersions to the waterparks are going to the old waterpark in Kos town), but we more or less had the whole place to ourselves, as it hasn't yet been advertised yet. There was no waiting so straight on the slides and food was great and cheap!!! everywhere was very clean.

Next year will probably be packed!!!
Well worth a visit, especially if your going to Kos this year!!!
