“Perfect for a clubbing holiday.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

I stayed here in a group of 5 girls all in one room on our first holiday, we were a bit apprehensive as we didn't know what the sleeping arrangements would be. We were pleasantly surprised to find 5 actual beds to sleep on and no camp beds, which was a plus. Don't be worried by first impressions as you first get off the bus, its right on a road but theres not much traffic and it didnt bother us, the view left a bit to be desired for though. However it is situated perfectly in kardamena, its just a short walk from the beach and is extremely close to both the superclubs, status being right next door. There was a lot of talk about it being a 24 hour bar and people partying until 10 in the morning, its mostly workers that party and our room was in the block not connected to the bar so we had no trouble sleeping after a long night out. The rooms were kept extremely tidy, bless to the poor maid having to clean up after 5 disgusting girls and even cleaning around me one day when i had a tummy bug. The bathroom tended to flood and we had to provide our own toilet roll but that was fine. Also the kitchen facilities were not amazing but we never cooked anything anyway. The pool was average, they put far too much chlorine in but at least they were trying to keep it clean. We never ventured into the indoor pool for fears the chlamydia rumours were true.
Except for a fire alarm at 5 in the morning which no one came out to check even after we had gone into the bar in our pajamas !! We had a brilliant holiday and the hotel served us well as a place to sleep after partying too hard.

Room Tip: go for the apartments, they are in a separate block to the bar so you cant hear the music playing at...

I went here this september and managed to catch the end of the season. We were a group of 3 lads. Upon arrival we were greeted with a beer and a shot. Upon request we received a free room upgrade which was cleaned 6 days out of the 7 we were there! If you stay in seva you become part of the family and the staff mingle just like any guest. they get everyone involved and you end up knowing EVERYONE staying in the hotel. Down the bar street is usually rammed and you soon get to know everyone. One thing to be said is pace yourself as the drinks flow very easy with most drinks coming with 2 free shots. Ive been to many destinations like ibiza etc but none were like kos it felt like a family everyone spoke and everyone joined for pub crawls. If you want a holiday where people are waiting on you hand and foot etc then dont bother, if you want a holiday where you meet great people get well looked after and most of all get messy than this is your place. It is to be said though the staff at the hotel are more than friendly and know how to deal with people who have had one too many (including me) but disrespect to their property and or rules will NOT be tolerated .Please dont let this put you off just behave and you wil have an amazing time, the bar is open 24/7 come 5am the clubs close and the bar packs out its ABSOLUTLEY AWESOME! and theres 24 hour kebabs which is a god send. All in all had a great holiday and going back 2013 for a stag.

Room Tip: if you want a good nights sleep ask to be in the out building not connected to the bar pus the rooms...

Me and two of my mates who are all 20, stayed in Seva, and we had a brilliant time. The rooms were clean, and cleaned everyday, apart from Sundays. The pool and bar area were nice and help was on hand at any time. The hotel was 2 minutes from bar street and next door to both status AMD starlight night clubs, where we went quite often. The hotel is a favourite with the bar street reps, and these are all really good to hang about with. And you get instantly recognized down bar street. The bar is 24 hours which is good if you want to keep drinking all night. Staff are very friendly and security staff on night times, are relaxed and very sociable. All in all a fantastic experience, think we're going back next year!

We went on a girls holiday (5 of us.. wanting a bit of fun, but not too crazy)...Thought we were taking a risk booking a '18-30's' style hotel but as long as you get a room in the quiet side of the hotel this is the best place to stay by far..... Seva is a 10 minute drive from the airport, great big pool and nice hotelbar (lively after the clubs shut)....amazing staff, dont listen to any of the bad reviews..clean rooms with full self-catering and an iron and hairdryer/air con/safe.
Kardamena is also beautiful - with some of the best restaurants i've ever been to.. top of the list are Avli, Captains and Pelagos (ask for Mike..). And good selection of bars and clubs. Big up Seva and Kardamena.

We had two holidays in one at this hotel - the first awful and the second brilliant!!! The problem was the first few days we had a room directly over the pool and bar - and the noise was unbareable - we had a weeks holiday and yes we wanted to party - but until 2am not 7am! Literally nearly cried trying to sleep, so we set about trying desperately to move hotel, but when that didn't seem possible we spoke to the owner and he offered us a different room at the back of the hotel, and THAT was absolutely great!! The noise was negligable and sleep was easy - we could party as long as we liked and still be able to sleep whenever we liked. So the second half of our holiday was epic, and Seva was a great place to be!

We had read reviews warning about the dirty bedsheets and over charging at the end -- so we took our own pillowcases and towels to avoid potential hassel, I think I'd always recommend doing that. Maybe even bathmat too.. :)

Room Tip: Ask for a quieter room at the back of the hotel - IF you want sleep before 6am ;)

by reading all the reviews was expecting to arrive to an absolute hellhole but far from it! group of 9 girls on a 'lads' holiday and it was ideal - close to everything and everyone came back to the seva to carry on drinking! cleaners came everyday and cleaned up all the mess we made! we were all worried about the owners trying to rip you off for dirty towels/bedsheets but they don't really care :) only issue we found was that we had to buy our own toilet paper when we ran out and we expected it to be provided. met some great people while at the seva and you can find all the reps and PR's around the pool, and the staff can't do enough for you, food was good too! just watch out for the bouncer as he's a bit of a creep! so don't pay too much attention to all the bad reviews cos it was definitely the best holiday i've ever been on!

just got back from Seva 2 days ago and i can honestly say i have never wanted to go back somewhere so much !!!! Hotel staff are really helpful and friendly , pool bars serves good cocktails and everyones game for a laugh !! i would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a party holiday ; it is close to Status nightclub and a 2 min walk to bar street where the drinking can begin . if your going to Kos this is the place to be !!!!! When the clubs shut at night Seva becomes the next nightclub with a 24 hour bar and indoor pool .
getting booking its well worth a try !!!!!
