We have been coming to this accommodation for around 8 years now and each year it is an absolute pleasure. Close enough to walk to the town, but far enough to be completely quiet and restful. The guests are largely Dutch and Scandinavian who have been coming here for numerous years and are respectful and courteous holiday companions. Contact between... More

Beautiful view on sea, great family, nice apartments, quiet, peaceful and yet close to town. Its only a 650 meters walk to the harbor. There is a nice swimming pool with sunbeds. They have breakfast, lunch and dinner and it's all delicious!

Nice accommodation with a great family on a beautiful spot! Really good beds. Roulla is great and does everything for her guests. The views are beautiful and its really quiet. Helena serves very good meals. Only 650m to the town.

A small apartment complex, just outside Pigadia (Karpathos city). I was born on the island of Mauritius and my husband in Holland, we lived most of our live in South Africa, we have seen a lot of the world and Greece but this beats everything we ever stayed. Small scale apartment complex run by mother, father, daughter. What a hospitality... More

Amazing place to stay especially if you want to experience the warmth of Greek culture and the picturesque beauty of the Greek Islands. The property is owned by a wonderful family, who really care about their customers. It is pretty, clean, well maintained and rooms are very comfortable. The family also speaks English and French, so you are sure to... More

We stayed here in September 2011. We had a one room studio on the ground floor. Our studio was spacious with twin beds, bathroom en-suite, kitchinette and balcony. The beds were fairly hard but the owners can supply a foam top matrass if required. The furniture was fairly basic. We would have liked more storage space. The bathroom was OK... More

Loud music bý the pool and reception area all day long. Requests to lower the music were ignored. Instead of "Sound of the sea" this hotel should be named "Sound of music". A pity, the rooms were large, some with a nice sea view.

I anticipate this is not a review on the accomodation itself but on the unprofessional attitude of the staff of the "Sound of the Sea" hotel in Karpathos. In summer you can't wait for an answer regarding your reservation request too long, otherwise you miss other opportunities to find an accomodation. Well, I wrote on the message board of the... More

Sound of the Sea is a really unique place to stay. It's run by a Greek family who couldn't be friendlier. They put their heart and soul into running the place and it really shows. You are made to feel so welcome from the moment you arrive, and it's lovely to be in a place that the owners love and... More

Helen, Roula and Michali are the best hosts I have ever met. You are made to feel like one of their family as soon as you arrive. The resort is new, with large cool rooms and great amenities. Views of the harbour are to die for, and easy access to the main town (Pigadia/Karpathos) by foot, or by rental car.... More
