“Clean Basic Friendly!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

1st the owners George and Michael are probably the nicest most helpful owners ever!! We went to Kos for a clubbing/relaxing holiday, and this hotel had a mixture of people our age (18ish) and couples and families. Our rooms were basic but clean, only problem was we didnt have air con but had a fan and we were fine! Pool area was really clean, loads of sunbeds, reasonably priced food and drinks! The location was a bit of a while to walk into the centre and back every night. But overall was cheap reasonable clean and friendly, no problems! Would recommend, although if u want a mad mad clubbing holiday and want to be right in Kos you're probably better in Seva (really nice) or Elga one of the 18-30's!

Me and the husband stayed here at the end of June, our flight was delayed but when we reached the apartments George was waiting for us. George an his brother was always willing to help nothing was ever too much trouble for them.We were taken straight to our rooms which were a down stairs studio a bit small and no air con. (needed air con) but other wise room was comfortable. Food in the snack bar was of good quality and reasonably priced, bacon was not the usual fatty stuff. pool area was lovely. Apartments were situated about 10 minutes walk from the main village and beach, allthough there was Bannana Beach 5 mins walk it was full of rocks so not very good to go in the sea. The apartments are set in a lovely quiet area so we always got a good nights sleep.This was our third trip to Kardamena so we knew were to find things. As usual we visited Ta Adelfia restaurants which is about a 25 min walk into the village, walk down bar street over the bridge on the right well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Ask not to be on the ground floor and you will get a larger room.

George & Michael are the perfect hosts they are only to keen to help help you, and they remember what you like and don't like which is great and we can reconmend the trips; The volcano was good but you need to be a mount goat, but still enjoyable and The 3 Irelands’ all day boat trip and swimming off the boat was fantastic. But the best was hiring quad bikes and going exploring. Manos Restaurant on the sea front in Kardamena just 15 min wak from the apartmentl, for your evening meals and you will never go any where else as the food and service was also great. We are going back there next year and we've never done this before so go on and book an apartment and have a grat time

Room Tip: Rooms to the left of the pool are quite1-6

We stayed at Nikos II, Kardamena some time ago but in June this year when we were staying in Tingaki, we visited George, Micheal and his family. The nicest thing was they remembered us from quite a while ago, we are going to book for George's next year it is the most loveliest of places very clean and sparkling.. good location a bit out of the main part but so easy to walk into, the sea front at Kardamena is beautiful so peaceful and very clean, lots of lovely eating places and the people always remember you..Makes for a better holiday because it feels like you are visiting friends..very east to get to other resorts on Kos, buses are really cheap to use..Kos town is great too..Kos is a piece of heaven...wonderful..can't wait to go back..

Room Tip: We had a room in the block overlooking the pool, quite big enough for two and very clean.. lovely v...

First of all the hosts George and Michael are the nicest people you could ever want to meet on holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for them, even when we asked for a room change due to the small studio on the main road being far too small, they accomodated us as soon as they could without any fuss. The location is perfect, meals are perfect, pool is perfect, weather was perfect, the wife was happy so nothing to complain about except one week wasnt long enough. Must give a special mention to the Garden pub restaurant and the lovely Aimee. Great drinks at reasonable prices and Great staff lead by the lovely Aimee oooh xx She was a wealth of information and recommended some great bars to us. We will return one day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room behind the pool, its quieter and more roomier.

We've just had a week in Kardamena, Kos staying at Nikos ll Apartments and would definitely return for another holiday in the future. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment even though it was just myself and my husband and it was lovely, it was set back from the other studios and pool area and the views from the terrace were great. Nikos ll is run by George and his brother Michael and they couldn't have been more friendly, just really nice, happy people.
We had breakfast everyday at the pool bar and I have to say, best full english breakfast we've ever had in Greece!! I'm funny about fatty bacon but not here, it was cooked to perfection!!
The pool area is nice and large, the pool is beautiful and all in all it was just so chilled out and relaxing, exactly what we needed!!
Behind the apartments we could see what looked like castle ruins on top of a hill, the rep never mentioned what it was so we asked George who told us you could walk up there and it was a big ruined fortress. He gave us directions and we set off early ish one morning and had a lovely walk, took us about 45minutes to get there and that was with stops to take photos of the stunning views. We had a good look round and was well worth it, mainly for the views.
Nikos ll is about a 10minute walk to the main bar and restaurant area in Kardamena, there is no path on the road but you're really only on that road for a few minutes before you turn left and walk into town so its not a problem. We loved the location because we like peace and quiet and I think the town itself may have been too noisy for us.
We ate pretty much every night in a restaurant called Alexandras, run by Spiros who is fantastic!! Everyone in there was super friendly and there's a English lady called Lindy who's front of house welcoming everyone in, she was really nice and is happy to answer questions about the area which we found helpful. Sprios himself was so funny and charming and our evenings spent there really added to the enjoyment of our holiday. The menu is quite extensive and offers traditional Greek but also Indian, Mexican, Italian (pizza/pasta) and sea food dishes.
We don't spend time in bars on holiday, we prefer a meal out, wine with our meal and then maybe a bottle of wine to take back to where we are staying to have on the balcony/terrace. If you do like bars though you'll have plenty of choice on Bar Street and there are night clubs in Kardamena also.
All in all a wonderful holiday and I would like to say a big thankyou to George and Michael, the apartments are lovely and clean and everything about Nikos ll was first rate, we will definately be back in the future.

Room Tip: Nikos ll is on a busy road but the vast majority of the studios and apartments are behind the pool a...

Well, where do i start. The holiday was exactly what we needed! Being completely honest, once we booked the holiday i was straight onto trip advisor to look at the reviews, and it made me dread the holiday! Some of the reviews are awful, must be from snobs! DO NOT let the reviews put you off, because once we got there i loved it! yes the apartments are basic, but what do you expect when the holiday is so cheap?! Even with the apartments being basic, they were perfect, out of the way, EXTREMELY clean, (Cleaned everyday). What more could you ask for? George & Michael the owners were brilliant! really friendly and more than happy to help! As for people saying he could be 'moody' and 'rude' again, must be mardy miserable people who just love to moan. The apartments are just a 10 minute walk into town, not far at all, perfect location if you want to be somewhere quiet.

The beaches arnt brilliant, but if you hire a quad or go on a boat trip, bubble beach is lovely!
Great places to eat are: Alexanders, Captains & Loustros, we went there at least 2 times each while we were there.

Prices everywhere are reasonable, nothing too expensive, nothing too cheap. So again people moaning about prices, just enjoy the holiday and get on with it!

I saw people moaning about the 'tepid water' in the apartments, the water is heated by the sun, so if some days are overcast the water isnt going to be the best, however george can easily (and did) turn the electricity on and the water is fine.

Overall we really did love this holiday and would deffinately go again, and would happily stay in Nikos 2 again. Dont let miserable people who love nothing more than to moan put you off!

A big thank you to George & Michael for making us feel so welcome and made our holiday a good one!
