Just returned from a fabulous two week stay at Solaris Apartments. We have been coming to Solaris Apartments since 2000. My first visit was with my daughter aged 10. Couldn't have wished for a safer place, which is why we have returned every year since. It is like a big family reunion as we meet up with guests from previous years and we always make new friends aswell.
We have stayed in a variety of apartments in Solaris and have found them all excellent! They have all been renovated in the last few years, so I don't know what people who put negative comments are expecting, after all it's not a five star hotel.
We have always found Kostas and his family very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them to do. The famous Greek saying "NO PROBLEM" certainly applies to Solaris Apartments.
I know there was a few bits of grass/weeds coming up around the pool, but nothing worth mentioning, I only wished I had that many weeds in my garden!!!
I know Kassiopi town is not as busy as it used to be but this has probably got something to do with the general Greek economy. There are still many excellent bars, restaurants and shops to choose from certainly enough for a two week stay.
As mentioned in previous reviews, the BBQ at Solaris is something else. The food is excellent, and all the salads and Tsatsiki etc. (excuse the spelling) is home made. My husband is a very big man with a very big appetite and there is plenty for him!!!! It is complimented by Greek dancing either by the family or professional, traditional Greek dancers, or both. It is a real fun night with audience participation. NOT TO BE MISSED!!! A very good meal for a very reasonable price.
The harbour is a five minute walk away or if you go the back way through Solaris it is 2 minutes and you pass Hot Shots internet café/Bar who make the most amazing crepes!! My favourite is Chocolate Baileys, they also do savoury ones. Nothing is too much trouble they will do what you want. It is used by the locals and tourists and you always get a good welcome from George (a Diamond Geezer, one of the owners) and it is open almost 24hours, well worth a visit.
We would recommend the Solaris Apartments to singles, couples, families in fact everybody.
We were talking to two women around the pool who said they had read the reviews and that's why they chose Solaris, but on the their first day they couldn't see why people returned every year, but after the second day they realised!! They are booking to come back next.
We have already booked for next year and in fact we booked it in May for 2014 and we hadn't even had this years holiday!!
Solaris Well Worth a Visit!!!
