Stayed here in June with a few mates and can't complain at all. Didn't stay in the main hotel but in one of the annexes which was about a 50 second walk away from the strip. Pool is good but you can't bring your own drink so I'd suggest a water bottle full of vodka or something. Would deffo stay again if I came back, hopefully make it to sandstorm next time

What's all the moaning about?

This review is quite long but please read because I feel it has to be said so people understand what this place genuinely has to offer and what it doesn't offer and hopefully help you make the right choices for your holiday in Kavos. I have just returned from a week in Kavos staying at the Island beach resort with 2 great friends (3 mature-ish women).😉 I became rather concerned originally about the trip after we had booked it, pretty much last minute, because I read the reviews on trip advisor saying how dirty and unaccommodating this resort and it's staff were but didn't tell the girls because I didn't want to worry them...OMG what a mixed yet mostly negative impression was painted of this resort😱. I was filled with dread as it was too late to cancel because we had paid in full(pretty damn good price tho) so i had to just hope for the best We arrived at around lunch time in the red hot sun and went to check in, we were welcomed by a lady called Sophia who was speaking to someone on the phone, yet still managed to greet us, (first bonus point) as it happened I heard Sophia mention my name to the caller so I told her that was me..turned out it was the company we had booked the holiday with, Deal of the Day holidays, just checking we had arrived safely, nice touch, and wanted the hotels email address to send our return flight tickets which the hotel staff promptly printed and saved for us(2nd bonus point). Then a lady called Lorraine came to us and said now I have met you I would like to offer to upgrade your room free as the room you have booked is in the part of the hotel that's usually rather noisy and in the heart of the action and you will more than likely be kept awake till all hours, although we kind of expected something like that since, after all, we were in party central, which by the way we were fully aware of..but not being in our twenties anymore we thought that was probably a good plan (yet we can still party with the best of them lol) so we took her up on her offer gratefully(3rd bonus point). We were taken to the next hotel annex about 5 minutes walk away, not 15 as some say in the reviews, and on an evening was very well lit not dark and scary...good start! So when we got to our room it was pleasant enough for us and more or less what we expected. Clean but simple. Now, rooms at hotels, where mainly young party going groups occupy them, are seldom the quality of the Ritz, because in fairness to owners of hotels in popular party places like Kavos, they know that the younger end in general (but not all) don't respect hotel property or other guests peace time, especially after numerous alcoholic beverages and shots consumed through to the early hours, hence basic rooms adjoining with similar age groups to create less disturbance and possible damage, yet comfortable enough to sleep in and sober up before a shower and round 2 the following evening, yes? so if your wanting the Ritz, then book the Ritz, which by the way you will never find in Kavos on the main strip..see where this is going?. Anyway anything after that which wasn't quite right was dealt with immediately and mainly by Manos on reception, once reported, and to our satisfaction, although not a great deal wrong to be fair, and all the other staff were really accommodating and friendly(4th bonus point) oooh we also had a sea view😎(thanx Lorraine)(5th bonus). Our rooms were also cleaned every day and clean sheets and towels provided every few days or upon request if we wanted sooner..again, complaints about this on trip advisor but all people needed to do was ask..we did and it was no problem to the staff to provide for us. Entertainment.. This is really on the strip in the evening but the hotel still had beach parties and pool parties which were fantastic and Greek night at the hotel was fab, probably one of our best nights, the bars on the strip were lively and entertaining, as I said, PARTY CENTRAL, brilliant, just what we wanted, also an abundance of different cuisine restaurants and the hotel smack bang on the beach I'm not sure we could have asked for anything more, especially for the price we paid. I tried desperately to find fault with the hotel and staff that had been put on trip advisor and so did my holiday friends..but no we couldn't fault anything. Although im sure some of the problems reported were genuine to some people I also feel maybe they did expect a little too much for the price and location of the resort and surrounding area..for example: A couple with 2 small children were complaining the hotel was too noisy(and they were the only ones there with kids)..erm hello, it's the middle of the party strip in kavos, probably not the best place to take toddlers hey ? but they moaned to other guest that they had been let down by the staff for not moving them to another hotel, puts a little seed there doesn't it ? Then a couple of girls were complaining their room didn't have a full length mirror... erm an over abundance of glass in a room full of heavy drinking party goers.. now there's a safety issue the owners don't want to create! Wise move dont you think parents? Then some other girls moaned to us that their shower was leaking..."so have you reported it to reception"?..."NO"...oh ok then how do you expect them to resolve the issue if they don't know you have an issue?, but it's highly likely your gona tell the world on trip advisor when you get home and it's too late for the hotel to resolve it for you!! Huh doesn't make sense?? Also a rep called Sally who arranged trips got quite a bad review regarding her apparently 'pushy tactics' to sell rubbish trips or parties that were a con..well we met Sally and bought a few trips ourselves(without being pushed) that were great and worth every penny,(thanks sally) but the ones we weren't interested in we said no thanx, which didn't seem to be a problem to Sally, no pushing whatsoever...easy There were even complaints from others who weren't even having any problems but because the above mentioned moaned that much to others, that the staff 'didn't deal with their complaints well enough' or 'the rooms are terrible', it created a bit of a knock on effect without valid reason...not fair really ?? So to conclude..had i read the reviews before we booked I probably would not have gone to Island Beach with my friends, but in all honesty I'm glad I didn't read them first and we did go because I don't believe we would of had a better time anywhere else.. please listen... Kavos is a very nice place for anybody to visit but there are different parts of it for good reason, single adults, married couples and families will enjoy..BUT if you want QUIET book a hotel away from the strip NOT in the middle of it like Island Beach.. if you want LUXURY pay for a 5* hotel with 5* facilities and if you want child facilities book a hotel for families away from drinking, loud youths using colourful language...BUT if you want party FUN in the day and evening or even just RELAXATION through the day on a well maintained beach within throwing distance of your room and a little music and a GREAT ATMOSPHERE while you Sun bathe then get yourselves to THE ISLAND BEACH RESORT and let your hair down it's FANTASTIC..best holiday we have had by far. Thanks to the management and all the amazing staff there for making us feel welcome, see you next time, if our other halves will allow us that much fun without them again haha Lorraine, Jackie & Vanessa xxxxx

Stayed last week with a group of mates, got a free upgrade into the main hotel, which I think was why our stay seemed to be better than the rest. It was a lot better than any of us were expecting. It's a cheap hotel on the Kavos strip so what do you expect. It does the job of being right on the strip, with a fantastic beach, staff were lovely and helpful, even when we were coming in drunk, they was having a laugh with us and generally really friendly. Food was probably some of the better stuff you'd find in Kavos. Although the room was basic, it had an alright bed, and a bit of a poor bathroom but it done the job. The only thing I would say to improve is the bathroom, as it's tiny and a bit basic, but apart from that, I enjoyed myself there so!

I stayed here with 4 others, when we booked the holiday with on the beach.com there was no indication that we was staying in the annex until we arrived. Even though we booked the holiday together, 2 of us was in 1 apartment block and 3 in another a short walk away. The annex was behind a farm where stray cats would be hanging around. The annex buildings are a walk away from reception and pool and are down a dark ally with no lighting and felt unsafe walking down in the dark after a night out. The hotel is one of the worst places I've ever stayed, our room would take around 5 minutes to lock as the key was bent and the lock was dodgy, the fridge diddent work, lights were broken and the shower was rarely warm. We had things stolen such as clothing, bikinis and towels while they were on the balcony drying. We also had other things go missing like shoes and toiletries which were locked inside and the only other person coming in was the maid... Do not buy anything from the rep Sally!! She offers you a package with 'discounted' tickets to hotel events. Hardly anyone turns up & the events are rubbish. There are so many good events such as the paint party at Atlantis which are alot cheaper and you pay for it on the door. Overall, I would not recommend the hotel at all! Will never be going back to the hotel again!
