A newly arrived Italian guest said "come il paradiso" to us on our last day at Olympia Mare, and it was easy to agree that it was indeed like paradise as we enjoyed what was effectively the private beach that is directly in front of every apartment. If you follow the indicated sandy path into the sea past the rocks... More

Olympia Mare was a very nice place to say and we had a wonderful time! We booked via Expedia and got a studio with 2 seperated beds which was very sad since we we were looking for to a romantic stay. But Nicos solved the problem quickly and we got another room. All the nice things the people sai before... More

We have just returned from our first holiday to Kos staying at this hotel. All the reviews for this hotel are amazing and I wouldn’t disagree however I don’t know if there had been a very rough sea prior to our visit but the beach was somewhat disappointing. As you can see from my two photos, there were many rocks... More

The perfect spot for a break from the tourists of Bodrum. An easy ferry ride across the strait to Kos and a 40 min taxi ride to Kardamena. Olympia Mare is situated out of town with its' own beach frontage (without having to coss a road). The apartments are large, airy and immaculately clean and provided with everything you need...

Quiet and relaxing atmosphere, Olympia Mare still has the original Greek charm. Family run apartments that make you feel at home and welcome, you will want to return after you leave. I have been coming to Kardamena for over 30 years, and this, in my opinion, is the best place to stay. The beach in front of Olympia is probably... More

Wonderfully situated, perfectly clean accommodation just a few kilometres from Kardamena. We enjoyed swimming, sitting in the shade of the trees on the beach and the views over to Nisyros. We also appreciated the advice and local information about the island from Nikos. The apartment was spacious, very comfortable with air-conditioning and great views from the balcony.

Olympia Mare is a bit secluded complex of apartments of various sizes with airconditioned rooms, kitchenette and a terrace or balcony ( if you are staying on the upper floor). The rooms are spacious, the cleaning lady comes every day, and towels are changed daily. The complex and the private beach give you the felling that you are far from... More
