Stayed at koulouris beach from 6th august for a week with 3 girl mates, we were pretty worried when we saw the reviews of the hotel but it was nowhere near as bad as we'd expected! Arrived at the apartment and it was really spacious and clean, yes it is very basic but we had everything we needed to be honest. The pool area is great, good atmosphere throughout the day, good music etc, and easy to meet new people as everyone is together, however towards the end of the week we decided to go to the beach instead as it is right outside the hotel and a little bit quieter, also there is a nice breeze on the beach and sunbeds are only 2 euros. There is a deal for air con and security box at 50 euros, which we did, definitely worth it as i lost my purse while i was there and was really glad i'd left my card and passport in the security box, the air con was a bit unreliable but we knew it would be, in one room we just had a fan which was good but not really cool enough for two people, in the other was the actual air con but it only really worked half the time.
The staff are really friendly if you're friendly to them, also there is a scary security guy at night who you definitely wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of but actually he does make you feel safe when you are a young group of girls surrounded by drunk lads !
We were surprised to see families at the hotel as I would definitely not come to Kavos with my family! It is definitely a resort for young people. Would recommend eating at the oven pub and terry's which are restaurants on the strip, both meals came to around 10 euro each for 2 courses and drinks. Watch out for the dodgy alcohol!! everywhere seems to give away this free champagne but don't drink it you can buy it for 2 euros in the supermarkets and it's basically just chemicals, also you will ask for a particular spirit beware!!! it probably wont be the right one everything is either watered down or a cheaper version of the genuine stuff ! Definitely bring insect repellent everyone was bitten!'
Watch out for the reps ripping you off especially the resident rep at the hotel, we decided to pay 30 euros for this beach party we ended up not being able to go because it finished at 1! ridiculously early and apparently it was exactly the same as the usual free club night, so we lost 30 euros! However, do listen to the deals on the strip because they can be quite good especially the ones at the restaurants, don't be rude to the reps it is their job after all.
Would probably stay here again if I came back to Kavos, good choice if you're there for a cheap party holiday! Don't let the bad reviews put you off!
