“Beautiful hotel on Karpathos!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

We lived here for holiday, 7 days, in the spring 2011. We had two double rooms with a seaview. the room was clean, simple design, bathtub, large terasse. It was big enough to have an extrabed. At my opinioin The standard in Greece is generally low for european standard. And we always find it hard to find good and dicent hotels. This hotel in Karpathos is really a jewell! Not a five star, but better than a three star - we all liked it very much.
The staff very friendly and serviceminded. One nigth we ate at the hotel and that was good enough. My daghter loved the Gnoccies - try it! The poolside is quite great for swimming and there is also a small childrenpool. Clean and dicent with a wonderful seaview.

The hotel is placed a little bit "off" the activities on the island. We hired a car (cant remember how much we paid but it wasnt expensive - do try to make a bargin, the car-renter was more than willing to lower the original price) and went around the whole island by car. visited beutiful beaches and small villiges. In the evening there is about 4 restaurants nearby to chose between. But we also went in to the bigger village for a couple of nights. Eating in the small harbour was absolutely great - and is recommended! Here you can also find a bigger supermarcet and small shops on the small "walkingroads" above the harbour.

Just down the hill/cliff from the hotel there is a small stone beach with a couple of sunchairs. Its steep down and i didnt feel comfortable to take my 5 year old girl with me. But the water was beautiful and my father often went down in the morning to jump in.
Instead we took a short walk, about 5-10 minutes, to a nice sandy beach that was shallow and perfect for snorkelning and playing with my daughter. To reach the beach you just go out the backside of the hotel, with the pool in your back facing the oscean you take left and start walking. On this sandy beach you can rent a sunchair and there is also 2-3 small restaurant for lunch and icecream.

If we go to Karpathos again we will not look after other hotelchoises.
Apolis is far the best this Island can offer!

The hotel is very clean, the staff wonderful people. Nice rooms with fantastic view. The area is very calm and quiet, and if you want to party take the local bus to Pigadia, only 10 minutes. Return by taxi.
We stayed for one week and enjoyed every minute.

Rooms rather on the small side, very small balcony (expected bigger rooms, definetely not 32 sqm as advertised) but clean with a good bathroom and a very friendly service. Very good breakfast in comparison with what you expect in the Greek islands.Good care of the guests by the owners and everybody there is very friendly.Great cocktails.
Visited the island and I should say that Apolis is rather an exception in a place where upgraded domatia are the norm.The only downside is that the rooms are uphill to the reception and parking so you have to go up and down all the time.

A remarkable place to build life long memories. With the breath taking views, romantic setting, and not to mention top-notch, best of class service, We could not have chosen a better place for my daughter's destination wedding! My daughter resides in San Francisco California USA, and staying at Apolis Hotel was like having her wedding at home away from home! All the wedding quests, who flew in from various places of United States, were very impressed of the Hotel accommodation, food and service. Many thanks to the owners for opening up two weeks earlier to accommodate us and to assist us with the wedding. We will definitely keep this hotel on the top of our list!

This hotel has a beautiful pool, amazing lobby, gorgeous clean rooms and is steps from two amazing beaches, but what set this place apart from the rest was the amazing people who work there. They were super friendly and more than accomodating to our needs (and wants!)

The Apolis Hotel in Amopi has perfected Greek charm with modern amenities, yet with the feel of Karpathian friendliness. It's location is one of the best on the island. Every room is perfectly situated so that each and every room has a stunning view of Amopi bay. I traveled with a large party and was able to see multiple rooms and suites first hand. All are unique in their own, yet uniform in their beautiful fixtures and cleanliness. Every room has a large patio with a view that leaves you feeling as though you are on the edge of the Earth. In all my stays anywhere, the staff is without a doubt the most accomodating and friendly I've ever experienced. The beaches below the hotel are amazing and pristine. The food is better than any restaurant we frequented while in Karpothos. We intend on returning to Apolis many times!

As a frequent business and leisure traveler, this is the first time I have ever felt compelled to write a review for a hotel. Apolis put the two five-star hotels we stayed at in Athens to shame at a fraction of the cost. The staff made us feel like part of their family and bent over backwards to make sure our kids had the time of their life. The rooms and pool are great and the location is amazing. The layout is perfect; giving a sense of privacy and an awesome view to every room. we will never visit Greece again without spending part of the trip in Karpathos with our new family at Apolis

Room Tip: No bad rooms, but liked the rooms over the pool.
