Clifford K          10/10

stayed at roses apt,s last year and was more than pleased to return this year, i,e sept 2007,will definately be returning in 2008,in my opinion yes greek self catering is very basic but the apartments are very comfortable, the pool cannot be bettered,and the hospitality is second to none,ok there is a bit of traffic noise but i would personally prefer that to walking miles tothe beech,,then againthere is a bit of music noise but if you want to go to bed at 9 oclock at night don,t go on holiday,besides they turn the music off about 11.30 ish and i was in the room next to the bar and it did not inter fer with me (PROBABLY BECAUSE I WAS IN THE BAR LOL) overall  i could not fault  the roses  apt,s and will definatly be returning ,to all the staff thanks for the hospitallity you payed me and my wife.

We visited Kos in July 06, and stayed at Roses Studios,  the studios were very close to the beach, the beach is a bit stonybut it is manageable. There are tavernas handy for beach goers.The Pool at the Dolpin bar is great as are the staff in the Dolphin bar, they cannot do enough for youthey make you welcome, and are so kind.The harbour is a about a twenty minute walk away, and it is an enjoyable walk in the cool of the evening.

The old village on the hill is well worth a visit, we stayed on the bus to get there as it is a long hike up a steep hill, but a pleasant walk down.

We stayed at the Roses Studios in early June and have mixed feelings about it.

The rooms are very small but they have everything you need - although they lack a few things you may want (e.g. only a small wardrobe with a few hangers - so nowhere to put non-hanging clothes, no safety deposit boxes, no air conditioning, nowhere secure to leave luggage or to have a shower on your last day - although the neighbouring Zeus hotel helped us out with both last day requests). The hot-water is solar-heated so you have to time your shower carefully and before the other guests! Bins were only emptied every other day - an issue in hot weather and when you aren't allowed to flush loo roll but must put it in a bin. The music from the neighbouring bar kept us awake until after midnight every night.
On a more positive note, the pool was fantastic, the studios are ridiculously close to the beach and restaurants/shops. We would also recommend hiring a car to go to other beaches etc on the island (the Kefalos beach is quite pebbly/shingley in parts).
All in all, it's cheap and cheerful...just don't forget to pack earplugs as you will find them invaluable!

My fiance and I stayed here from 4th-11th june and it was wonderful, nothing was too much for the owners, even when our pipe burst they had it fixed within an hour. The rooms and clean and cosy with little touches like pictures and towels and the kitchen has everything you need. The location is brilliant, right by the beach and the pool bar and pool were lovely. We miss it so much already we're planning to go back next year to the roses. I'd recommend it to anyone, its perfect and we cant fault it.

We had a fantastic holiday staying at the Roses Studios!  The apartments themselves are quite basic but are clean and comfortable.  The family that own them are very friendly and welcoming.  The beach is just a stones throw away and there is loads to do.  Thank you to Manolis, Sarah and crew for a wonderful time!  Can't wait to see you next year.

We stayed here with Thomson Just, and new that we would be getting what we paid for. The accomadation was very basic and not particularly clean. It did have everything you needed kitchen wise, but I would advise you take cloths etc. and buy cleaning things and toilet paper (they do not have to provide it if you are self catering and wont after the first roll!)when you get there. There are only 7 studios, therefore there is a maxium of 14 people there at one time, however if you do not have a shower before 6.15pm there is no hot water. Our room was next to the bar which can be noisey during the films that they show and later on at night.
The best thing about Roses is the pool. I would think that the pool is by far the best in Kefalos.
All in all if I was to take a last minute holiday and this was the only place left I would go again, but I would be more prepared and buy cleaning materials!

We stayed at the Roses Studio In June 2001, we were unable to get a booking there this year. The Roses Stodio Is on the Main Road through Kefalos, but sits far enough back to not be bothered by traffic noise. This year as been added a super pool and Internet cafe, but the family that run the apartments remain warm and friendly and we regard them has our friends. We can't wait to return to the Roses. 400 yards from the beach, easy access to local stores(there Is one on site) Value for money!? 4 star
