Stayed here for a week end of July 2010............
Do not book a studio for more than 2 people and expect them to be small, dirty and un-cared for. Our room had dirty razor ends, stained walls and sheets. Staff are friendly enough but the rooms really let the place down. Grounds and pool nice but thats about it!
Would not return! (read more)

second year at the evripides hotel. the welcome you receive is fantastic. rooms are basic but very clean and tidy. pool area clean and tidy. bar offers competitively priced drinks and food. on occasions there are barbeque nights and pool is kept open for night swimming. at £12 euro's you'd be a fool to miss. the resort is idelly situated enough distance from the busy lively town centre to enjoy a relaxing holiday but for the more adventurous like me a short bus ride or shared taxi to the...

My family had a lovely time at Evrpides Village, we stayed for two weeks and were extremely happy with our self catering studio which had great bathroom. The room was clean and comfortable. We especially loved the pool area and were very happy with the staff. We could not have had a better holiday. The beach is just a short walk away and it is the perfect distance from the party atmosphere which is only a 5 min taxi ride away. We are planning to go back next year. (read more)

When we arrived I was apprehensive as it first seems to be in the middle of nowhere. Once you've orientated yourself though, you'll be grateful not to be staying in the centre, or in the huge complex further up the road. We stayed for a week.
As a couple, we had enough cutlery and crockery, four of each. The fride worked very well, nothing was broken. It would have been nice to have a kettle and toaster but I think it's the lack of space on the counter that hasn't allowed for these extra... (read more)

The Evripides village Hotel in Kardamena is a great place too stay, me and my fiancee have stayed there 3 years running each time we stayed for 2 weeks at a time. We cannot express how friendly and welcoming all the staff are there and if you do have a problem lets be honest some moan more than others the staff will help you and do what they can to rectify any problems you may have.

I have been looking at the recent reviews regarding the Evripedes hotel/apartments and think some of you have been a little miss led by your tour operators to be honest.
We have just returned from a 1 week stay at the evripedes and i have to honestly say in the time we were there our service was excellent. My partner and myself became very good friends with both father and son who run the apartment complex along with there very friendly staff.

We booked our Olympic holiday through Direct holidays. Having looked at Olympics 'site, the accommodationm was not as I expected. We paid about £475 each for one week. Perhaps if you were looking to go out partying every night and had got this for half what we paid you may not mind. Upon arrival at our room we found some kitchen units on the side of the wall. Also what appeared strange was the positioning of light fixtures at the beds appeared clearly placed without a kitchen in mind. There... (read more)

It was very disappointing to find that things that were advertised were not available, the accommodation advertised that it was good for families and couples - No not in July in my opinion!! We were lucky as we were staying for a month so although the first two weeks were not so good end of July and early August was good as the youngsters went home and families and couples arrived, making the place much more civilised. The bus into Kardemena did not run every hour, if you missed the 9:55 bus... (read more)

Had visited website so knew to take hairdryer and that aircon was available at extra cost. Found Nikos and his family to be pleasant and helpful; they couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. We arrived at 4.30 a.m. and were greeted cheerfully and guided to our room, which was clean and tidy. We noticed we didn't have a kettle/jug to boil water and no large... (read more)

I really can't fault anything from Evripides Village. I stayed with 2 friends and we had the best holiday ever. We arrived at 6am and even at that time were able to get a much needed drink at the bar. Lovely views out to sea and the other islands in the distance.
The apartments are located a taxi ride away from town, in a lovely peaceful setting. Was only 7 euro to get to Kardamena, which is great if you don't want it in your face all the time.
Our room was perfect, was cooled in the... (read more)

Visited Kardamena June/July, arrived early hours. We were greeted at the check in desk (the pool bar), where our passports were taken from us and left under the bar for a few days (really wasn't happy about this, anyone could take them).
Very basic accommodation, bathroom was really quite dirty and smelt bad. You get what you pay for. The cleaners came about 3 times over the 2 week period. We got on fairly well with the staff, although at times they could be very invasive and insulting.

All in all we had an excellent holiday. The rooms are basic (which it states!) so we weren't expecting anything fantastic! Nice view of the sea, the beach that was a shingle beach but if you waled 30mins there was a nice one. The main area of Kardamena is awesome, some good bars and clubs, although it gets a bit quiet at 12.00 when the music from the bars has to be turned off. (read more)

On our first day we were accused of throwing food about the place and threatened with eviction. The owner later found the real culprit and didn't even inform us, let alone apologise. This experience was by no means unique. I would never return. It is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. If you are coming to Kardamena to get slaughtered every night, then you might just be able to cope with it (you will hate the place though).

The hotel Evripides Village is basic. The owner was not very nice and rude to us, as was his son. We had to pay for air con, loo paper and can only drink drinks from the bar at the pool. He tried blaming us for damage, and wouldn't let us leave the hotel until we paid 100 euros. He shouted at us when we said the damage was already there, which it honestly was!
The hotel in my opinion has rubbish self catering facilities and is about an hour from the town. Taxis soon get expensive as well. I... (read more)

Prices at the bar were high and as you far out you have no option.
I would go to Kardamena again, but I would not stay at the Evripides village hotel again. (read more)

My boyfriend and I stayed for a week at Evripedes Village hotel during August and after reading other reviews I had high expectations. The pool was lovely, yet that's about the only positive thing I have to say! The room was very basic. The bathroom smelt of drains and the shower was hand held. You are given 1 toilet roll to last the duration of your stay and the nearest supermarket does not sell them so you need to go into Kardamena for these. Unbelievable!

Perfect for all except maybe families with little kids, especially in-season at least. Big men jumping in the pool all day. Couples will love it because you'll soon have more mates. Groups of lads will loves it because there's way more girls than boys there. Indie music lovers will love it, apparently there was good dance and rnb as well but who cares!

Evripides Village Hotel is a fantastic place to stay. It is close enough to Kardamena to enjoy the nightlife, but it is far enough from the centre, that you can relax and enjoy peaceful afternoons in the sun. The beach is at the end of the road, where there is also a watersport centre, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The best thing about Evripides however, is the family that run the resort - you'll travel a long way to meet friendlier and more welcoming people.

Evripides Village Hotel was an apartment that is apparently a stones throw away from the beach and within walking distance of Kardamena. It is true Evripides is within a stones throw of the worst beaches on Kos, full of large stones, shingle and pebbles along with numerous litter deposited.
