Just back from kardamena in kos, booked a week, allocation on arrival so wasn't expecting much. Apartments were called Alphi and were situated close to the beach and all amenities, they were clean but had no aircon and didn't know until our last day that you could ask for a fan. The apartments were very noisy throughout the night as cars and especially bikes used the main road as a speed track. Attended the welcome meeting at the blue pool and asked the rep for info on the ferry and transfers to bodrum, turkey, as we wanted to go and see some friends for a few days. He said he would enquire and get back to us, but he never did, so made our own arrangements. On our last day we had booked a boat trip to bubble beach but as we were leaving our apartment we were met by the cleaner who told us we had to vacate our room by 12 midday as the room was booked, this was fine but as our flight was not until 02.25 the next morning we asked where we could leave our luggage and also where we could shower the reply we received was a shrug of the shoulders! I rang Olympic office to be told that "did we not know It is international policy to vacate rooms by midday" and was told that I could buy a room for 15 or 20 euros but this would be from midday to 7pm, as we were not back from our boat trip until 1730 I thought this was a waste of money! I was also told that there should be a shower at the pool, as most pools had them. There was not! Come on Olympic you can do much better than this! Transfer back to the airport was supposed to be at 0010, the bus turned up at 0050!!!
On a better note Kos was beautiful and would definitely recommend a trip there, also eating in Manos restaurant, which is right on the beach and do the best seafood we have had in a long time.
