General Comments
We stayed in olympion village, which was a really good choice, everything is brand new, as its only 3 months old. We had satellite TV, Air Conditioning, and DVD. The pool, Bar (open until 6am), and restaurant are excellent. The staff there are really friendly and helpful.

Kavos itself is a bit tacky, but as long as you are not expecting some nice greek town, you will be ok, and it is not wise to visit in the day time, however at night, non of this matters, there are loads of cool bars (rolling stone), and clubs, offering various drink promotions. The PRs outside the bars are annoying, but you get used to them. There are also some good places to eat, the majority of the dishes offered are english, but there is also some good greek stuff, check out roussos, on the beach. also try and go to a greek bbq, sooo good!

The beach at Kavos is nasty, really narrow, with sea weed and ugly brown sand, best to stick by the pool, or go on a boat trip to a better beach, the blue lagoon is pretty.

We booked with Kosmar, who were really good! There was always a rep. to get hold of if you needed help. However, they did let us down at the end by forgetting to pick us up from our appartment for the transfer to the airport. It was such a nightmare, we were very stressed, which wasn't helped by only having 2 hours sleep previously, and a killer hangover. In the end we had to take a taxi to the airport (it takes 1 hour. They paid!!.. It was a mad rush through the airport, as we had to be escorted through security, and if we had been 5 minutes later, we would have missed the plane. However, apart from that, the trip went very smoothly.

One of the best things about Kavos, is the high proportion of males to females, it has got to be 7:1, at olympion it was 90% blokes, a sausage fest as one person called it. Great for us girls!

Kavos is good for those wanting a trashy booze-up holiday, we didn't get in before 6am on each night! The resort is full of young people, and laughs guaranteed!
