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!
