Mitsis Summer Palace Beach Hotel
Ranked #15 of 39 Hotels in Kardamena
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Hotel is nice, service is professional, staff is helpful. The room was large and nice. It had great sea view - we could sea the beach, other islands, Kardamena in a distance. Our hotel and other hotels on the site were fully booked but it didn't look very crowdy and wasn't noisy. Summer Palace and other other restaurants on site have great food - you won't be bored. See was wonderful, weather was great during whole stay. We've enjoyed and would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Didn't any complaints from other visitors, so I guess all rooms are fine.

This place is ideal for holidays. Hotel is beautiful, there is nothing to criticize. All staff is hardworking, helpful, kind and always smiling. Hotel room was every day clean, food is very tasty, the view is superb. The beach is amazing - the sea is so clear! I liked animations like voleyball and water-gym. Animators make your holidays even better. I can recommend it to everyone. And I hope I'll have a chance to come back next year!! :)

The hotel has lots of pools to choose from which are all salt water. The pizza and Greek restaurants are a must yum yum but you have to book a day in advance for these but well worth the wait.
I had a go at the water aerobics in the sea which was great fun the animation team do a great job at entertaining you they are not like most other animation teams that constantly bother you.
The water sports well you needed a deposit of 30 Euros for the pedals or a canoe which I thought was a bit much as why would you be taking this amount of money to the beach, god knows where they thought you might go with them in half an hour, maybe Turkey if the wind is blowing the right direction lol! We stayed for 10 days the food was nice although it does get a little repetitive after a while, If you are privileged enough to have a black band as we were you can use Mitsis Norida Beach and Family Village Resort eat and use the facilities for free we went in the Norida for dinner its seems very rushed and the staff looked under pressure I didn’t really like the atmosphere here although food was a nice change from the Summer Palace .
There seemed to be a lack of cups for some reason at breakfast and when you did finally get a cup the hot water dispenser was luke warm this drove me mad as all I wanted was a nice cuppa for breccy if you drink coffee its fine they bring it to you at your table why is it different for tea. Tea bags would be on one side of the room with milk over the other it really seemed like hard work and all pointless when you finally sat down as it was cold anyway!, best after 9am to go to the main lobby bar where you get a decent cup of tea with a smile.
You can treat yourself to a massage in the blue domes we got ours with 40% off with the happy hour offer 1pm-3pm 30 Euros for half an hour it’s so good.
Also do your excursions with Dougie hotels4u.com rep who comes to the hotel look on the board and it states the times he will be there, you get some bargins BUY 2 GET 1 FREE all of which you get picked up and dropped off from the hotel a must do is Nisyros its about 35 Euros each and you get your own tour guide who has been doing it for 18 years and knows his stuff it really is something special amazing place 9am - 5pm
Zia Greek night watch the sunset go down amazing views of the island then a full on Greek party with lots of food and drink included in the price 35 Euros each 5pm – 10:30pm. Our freebie we choose to go to Kos town shopping brilliant way of seeing the island by coach. The walk from the hotel along the beach front into Kardamena takes about an hour walking slowly take some water you will need it can you always take the bus back to the hotel for 1.80 Euros ask reception for a timetable cabs are 10 Euros into town. There is a big super market called Louis in the town and a lovely coffee shop along the harbour called Gregs he does a lovely cuppa. We also found a boat down Kardamena harbour called Zeus we went on it for 8 hours 30 Euros only 10 people allowed on so you get a real personal touch you feel really special by Andy and Carol the owners.
We had one day of bad weather although we were told that his was the 1st bit of rain since May it was an amazing storm got some amazing pics of a tornado/cloud funnel not sure?
Tip take some bread with you on the beach the fish love it and all the newbie holiday makers love it.
This hotel/Island really does have everything you need. I went with my mum who had never travelled abroad before and loved it!! Thank you for a great hols xx

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view amazing views!

Beautiful immaculate hotel in a fantastic elevated position! I requested a balcony with a sea view and WOW what a sea view we got in the main building! We could see over to Nisyros the volcanic island straight ahead and to the left was Turkey.
However my main grumble about staying in the main building was that it was extremely noisy. At night time and early morning you could hear every cough, every scrape of a bed and every foot step. The evenings were also very quiet with very little entertainment on. But then again it was a relaxing holiday we were after so this wasnt the be all and end all of our fantastic holiday.
I would highly recommend the Nisyros Volcanic Island excursion available from the hotel for 35 euros! This day trip was absolutly awesome, interesting, factful and breathtaking with our own tour guide and a stunning sunset on the boat ride home! You also get a free trip when you book Nisyros, and we chose the shopping trip to Kos Town. This was also very good as theres lots to see and do in this big bustling town!
All in all we had fantastic weather and a fantastic time at Summer Palace!
