“Fun Holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

7 of us just got back from the Kos yesterday. We stayed in here & had a great week. We had done 18-30 b4 & understood it was the reps jobs to sell us the package. We all bought it & did really enjoy it. It wasnt a big town so I think it might not as been as good having to find your own entertainment at night. 1 thing I will say Is the events such as foam party & paint party don't start until about 2am so we found drinking all day & going to lots of bars first (which is what you do) didnt work & we were all exhausted & missed stuff. The hotel is lovely & staff nice. The wi fi password did change so I just wouldn't bother. Pool great! People great! Was fab! Would recommend this hotel for anybody wanting a fun holiday!

If your looking for the best place to stay in kos it's Seva. Lively hotel with great music, friendly bar staff and good food in the day and the place to go for the after parties when the clubs close.

Ignore negative reviews it's an 18-30s yes reps are there to sell but theres no force. The package sold by Rosie was well worth it and made our holiday a fantastic drunken memory.

The reps are amazing, usually reps finish work and that's it they're off. Not these 3, Carl, Fliss and Rosie were such a laugh and become more like friends on a night out even joining us for the after parties in the pool (Rosie and Fliss ;-) )

Drinks at hotel are well worth what you pay for.

Everyone happy to help and make your holiday a drunken mess, which is what 18-30s is about.

Can't what for the big reunion!!!

Hotel was nice and was lively, good music played around the pool. Bar staff were very helpful and friendly, however, getting the wifi password from the bar was a nightmare as it changed daily and was hard to get from staff!
Wish someone had advised us beforehand though to not waste money on the events organised by the reps!!! Totally overpriced and felt pressured into them. A rep comes to your room the minute you get to the hotel, when you are tired from a plane journey and had no chance to talk about the events with friends and other people staying at the hotel. When asked if we could think about whether we wanted to pay for any trips we were told no because they needed to be booked that night which definately wasn't true!! Reps were pushy and unfriendly.. particularly fliss.. who was not happy when we turned down events. We also made friends with other groups around the pool and all went out to bars together one night, however, because we weren't taking part in the bar crawl with the reps, fliss was heard telling bar staff not to serve us or give us any drinks offers as we were supposed to be on their bar crawl (which we werent.) Not what you want on your holidays, you should be able to go out with who you want without having to answer to reps!!
Overall, hotel was nice, bar staff were lovely but reps ruined it by their pushy/ rude attitude.

Best location you could ask for.. Got better as the week went on! The 24hour bar is amazing after a night out!
Reps were all top! Especially Katie who's the best looking girl in kos. Add me on Facebook!! Ha
Definitely would stay again!

Ok so we arrived and it was good our room was fine 18-30s reps were nice enough and bar staff were nice and friendly! Party hotel just what I wanted. My holiday wouldn't of been as good if it weren't for the amazing people we met. After we showered the bathroom stunk from dodgy pipes and the shower wasn't workin properly also so it drenched our bathroom floor every time they never changed the towels or bathmat all holiday and hardly changed the bed sheets or done the washing up. The pool was good and the music. It states free wifi but they would change the code 3 times a day and only give it to you if you bought a drink let alone we was buying drinks all holiday!! Never experienced that before. Riley Eliza and Kirsty working at the bar were the nicest people there. But the others I found rude on occasions especially if they didn't get what they wanted out of u. When it came to checking out I got told I was fined 15euros for paint on my bed sheets and I didn't even go to the paint party which i stated and got accused of lying! So he said he would drop it to a tenner! I refused to pay as I know they are just trying to get more money out of u for something that isn't true! We then got told if we didn't pay it we weren't allowed on the coach to the airport!!!! A load of crap if u ask me! I didn't pay it and snuck onto the coach! 18-30s rep fliss was very pushy and money grabbing I thought welcome meetings wer meant to be done in groups but no she sent us up to our room saying it was very important making us worry we had done something wrong and during the day interrupting my sunbathing! Not what u want when u r on holiday. Found her intimidating and pushy and the events they done were definitely not worth what they charge! U can pay separately at the clubs a lot cheaper and not feel like u have been robbed but they don't tell you that! They are full of lies and only care about commission! Not happy with her at all! So gettin there they are nice as pie and leaving they are the worst people! Not very good last day to my holiday thanks to the robbing reps! Also had my phone stolen and they wer no assistance whatsoever to me. I did bring this to their attention and they was not so ever in the saltiest interested! Bad customer service

Room Tip: Take ur own bed sheets and don't pay for events with 18-30s also don't put deposits down as...

Me and 8 of my friends stayed at the Seva hotel for a week on Club 18-30 holiday.

The rooms are basic but are very comfortable and exactly what you need for a clubbing holiday. Air Conditioning was 30 euros for the week and the safety deposit box was 10 euros for the week.

The Club 18-30 reps, Carl, Fliss and Katie were great and explained about the week package very well and was well worth the money because all the nights out and boat trip were included.
The hotel staff are very friendly and will help you with anything you ask for with no problems.

The pool area was clean and checked regulary by hotel staff. There were always sun beds available thoughout the week because many people were suffering from the night before LOL.
The hotel is always buzzing with activity as its a 24 hour bar; the bar does not come to life until 4am when everyone returns from nights out.
The bar strip and shops were only a 5 mins walk away so the hotel is in a great location.

If your planning a clubbing holiday in Kos then this is the hotel to be in!!!
GREAT HOTEL, GREAT REPS, GREAT HOLIDAY!!!

We came to the seva as a group of 5, we've done similar holidays before but never 1830 and can honestly say I will book again with them!!
The hotel location is perfect, your literally 5minutes from anywhere! The rooms are a good size and the staff are lovely! The bar staff are really friendly, Eliza and Shane who work the evenings are really friendly and helpful!
Our favourite club was status, it's smaller but tends to have better music! Bar street is small but you can get good deals and they all play good music, we've been big resorts before, last year went maga, I personally prefer kos bar street, all the bars have small dance floors so we partied there before heading to clubs!!
We brought the some of the trips off the reps, we did everything apart from the boat but only because some of us get sea sick!! The reps Carl, fliss, Katie are lovely!! They get involved and get everyone socialising, we knew everyone in the hotel by the end of the week!! Fliss was lovely, no problem too big for her to sought out, she looked after us all week and was great fun on the bar crawls getting us involved in games etc, Carl was so funny, you will hear him before u see him!! And Katie is really bubbly!!

All in all the seva is amazing the standard of the hotel, the rooms, the pool, the staff, all over exceeded our expectations!! Would defo reccomend and go again!!!
