My husband and I have just returned from a week in mammis beach. George the owner was very welcoming and could not do enough for us all week. The apartments are basic, but very clean and tidy. The town of Kardamena is a 20 minute walk if you like walking, but if not the taxis are 6euros 50 or there is a regular bus service half past the hour. (very occasionally the bus does not turn up, but George will phone a taxi for you right away if this happens). The BBQ on the Monday is worth going to as we had a great laugh with the quiz and the food was lovely. George and Renata work hard at making sure everyone is enjoying themselves. It is a good way of meeting people within the complex. We would just like to say that if we were ever in Kos again, we wouldn't hesitate in going back to mammis beach.
Just got back from a week spent at these apartments. The pool area etc is nice, with a nice pool and lots of sunbeds. The food was ok but not really much variety and most of it's standard english food which is fine if that's the kind of thing you're looking for. If you want greek food you definitely have to look elsewhere. The barbeque on the Monday was nice and worth the money though.
we loved it here. it was nice and relaxing. yes u had a walk into town but so what. the taxis were cheap. george and his wife were lovely. they couldnt do enough for you.the food was very nice aswell. the bbq was good and the quiz a laugh. george has asked us to go back again this year and i must admitt his rates are very good! we went june this year 2006

My Girlfriend and I have just got back from our holiday to Kos after staying at
I have to admit, when we started to read some of the reviews which mentioned George's 'behaviour' we were slightly concerned that being a young(ish!) couple ourselves (26/27) that we may receive the same treatment as some of the previous visitors had done. However, throughout the whole holiday I didn't hear one complaint about George at all. Him and his wife are very friendly and during our stay the two Bar Staff (Yannis (pm) and Soula (am)) were very welcoming. (especially Yannis who has a great sense of humour and very entertaining with his tricks and jokes!)
We decided to eat in on our first evening and found the restaurant very quiet which to be honest was perfect for us. Neither of us could fault the food and the BBQ on the Monday was lovely, i'd even go as far to say that the pork chop I had was one of the tastiest EVER!!
I was a bit gutted that due the company who booked the holiday for us forgot to request the top floor meant that we had no air-con, we got a large fan which cost us 20 Euros for the 14 nights. Its a pity there is no option for the air-con on the ground floor studios but we made do with the fan!
Cleaning wasn't too great to be honest and the sheet was to small for the bed which meant you woke up on the mattress which isn't to nice! The Towels and sheets were changed only 4 times which could have been better i suppose but all in all, as i'm not too fussy, it didn't really matter too much. One other thing though, the bugs out there are a tad on the large side! we saw a very hairy spider! so if you're on the ground floor it might be best to keep the windows shut although George does try and keep them away with sprays.
The pool area was quite large with plenty of sunbeds so there was never a problem getting one at pretty much any time of the day. George can be a bit funny about bringing food from outside to the pool but I think that's fair enough.
It cost us 20 Euros for a safety deposit box which is always a wise choice i think and George will charge 2% for taking your travellers cheques off your hands! It costs 20 Euros to keep your room on until 8pm if you have a late flight this is a good idea so then you can have your whole last day in the sun!
The Studios are literally on the 'beach' which meant a nice breeze (quite gusty when we were there) which I thought was great if you don't like the heat to be too hot! Having said that the beaches close by were not very nice and were quite littered and dirty so we stayed round the pool most of the time.
Kardemena was very lively at night and isn't that bad to walk too, we even did it in about 15 minutes once (very brisk walk that was though!) Loads of bars as you'd expect and a Maccy D's!!
Hired a little Jeep for a few days to see the island, not a great deal of things to see and do but certainly try and get to Kos town and Bubble beach (didn't see too many sulphur bubbles but the beach was ok) Most of the other beaches are shingle and sand.
If you're feeling romantic make your way over to Mastichari (we found a little desolate beach not to far from the power station... nicer than it sounds!) and watch the sun set over the horizon.
So, to summarize!
MAMIS BEACH IS EXCELLENT!!!! I have been to Mamis Beach once in my life, which was in 2003 and I thought it was fantastic!!!. George and his family were amazing. They really made a huge effort to join in with us even tough we made no effort to speak greek at all. This holiday was the best I have ever had because of George Mamis, the greatest host in Europe. He is brilliant, and I wish we could be there every year!! George, please e-mail back. Mairi, Russell, Kenneth and Lyndsay. xxx
Just returned from Mammis Beach. It was the best appartments I have ever stayed in. The food is superb. The position peaceful and easy to get into the centre 1 mile away by bus. George and Renata will look after your every need and Peter and Kate are in the bar to look after you until late at night always with a smile on their faces. You will not find a better place to stay in the whole of Greece!!!
Go to www.mammisbeach.com and there is links to get in touch with George and it has photos of the whole hotel.
How do i contact the hotels you list. There are no details onthe site only reviews.
I love this place. I've been three times again and will keep going back. George makes this place unforgettable. Ridiculously cheap if you book direct. It is a bit of a trek into town but with busses for about 50p every 1/2 hour you can't complaign too much. If you like BBQ's and quizes then don't miss Tuesday nights. See my web page http://www.kardamena.shorturl.com for more details
been to kardamena 3 times in 2002, stayed at the akti but ended up eating at mammis as we and the kids loved the food, we asked to see the rooms and thought they were abit better standerd than alot in kardamena, theres only 20 studios and a great little pool the beach is 10 seconds from the small complex which is about a mile from the towb centre. if you book direct through the net the rooms are only aprox 12 pound a night and sleep 3 (thats £12 a night for the room not each) believe us you cant go wrong from what we saw, we would love to stay there but its abit of a walk into town.
love it love it love it going again next year
really friendly atmosphere friendly people very very clean lovely pool and garden excellent food worth visiting ive been there 3 times and im going again next year
