Mitsis Norida Beach Hotel
Ranked #5 of 39 Hotels in Kardamena
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 1, 2011

We have just returned from a brilliant stay in Norida Beach, this is a lovely hotel in a nice setting. The staff are very pleasant and helpful, and nothing is too much trouble.
The rooms are cleaned and fresh towels are left every day.
The food in our hotel was lovely. It was also lovely to be able to experience the restaurant facilities up at blue dome.
The entertainment was good, we also liked the club zone although it was a shame it was not included in the all inclusive, we asked if we could put it onto our room but were not able to. The staff up there were so helpful though, the barman Ben allowed us to open a tab and pay it off the following day, we thought it was really nice of him to trust us and the atmosphere up there was fantastic.
We were made to feel so welcome throughout the whole resort in Norida and can’t wait to visit again next year!

We stayed for a week from 24th August. Check-in was at 2.30am. We were shown to a room up the hill towards the family hotel despite requesting a room in the main building. Don't stay in room 569 if you are offered it. It was worse than some of the hostels I stayed in when I was a student backpacker. There is also a noisy road running through that side of the resort. Needless to say we complained to reception and eventually were moved to room 424 which was a much better room overlooking the sea at the quieter end of the resort. We have no complaints about the holiday after the room change. Pools were busy and sun beds were reserved early with towels!!! A nice touch from the staff mid morning was the staff wandered around pool side with trays of melon and nectarines dipped in chocolate. My daughter loved that. Food was pretty much as expected for AI. A wide range available if you're not fussy. Might get a bit repetative if staying longer than one week. Drinks were fine. Kids club was good. Marta and the other girls were very friendly.
Free wifi was good but slow when busy. I'm using the hotel wifi to write this while I wait to depart. On the whole what we expected, minus the hiccup at the beginning. An enjoyable holiday.

This was our third stay at the Mitsis Norida Beach Hotel,we absolutly love it here, as soon as you arrive there is a magicalness about the Hotel, you are met by really well mannered staff, where nothing is too much trouble you are shown to your room if you need help by a "bell boy" who again is always very friendly and talkative, they drop you off as near to your room as they can and help you carry your bags, on reaching our room we was blown away by just how nice it was it had a downstairs fully eqipped with bathroom, toilet, wardrobes, beds and a fridge which is stocked every other day, but if you run short just tell the bell boy and he will bring it to you!!!! plus french doors out onto the balcony, you go upstairs to the master bedroom which I love, there is also a bathroom, toilet, wardrobes a dressing table and of course the bed, when you lay on the bed and open the roman blinds you can see the sea it is very magical and very special!!!!!, the rooms are cleaned and fresh towels are left every day the maid makes your bed clothes into pretty swans and love hearts, they are very trustworthy, I leave everything all over in my room jewellery, money, camera they do not touch a thing, the bar staff are friendly and quickly get to know what you drink again nothing to much trouble the hotel has its own beach the beach hut man in the bar is amazing we love him, again he knows what you drink and gets it ready for you as soon as you reach the bar, there are snacks throughout the day and they are great from sandwiches to cakes everything you can imagine coffee is served all day anything you want you can have, the restaurant is ran very smoothly and you are always made to feel special the pretty waitresses always make nice comments about how nice you look, the food is out of this world you can see it all being cooked infrot of you and again there is everything there you can imagine, I am a very fussy eater and every day I ate well here, usually All Incs are not good but this hotel is!!!! in the evening there is always entertainment, the manager of the hotel runs it very smoothly, he speaks to you he makes you feel very welcome and he remembers you from year to year and he and his team bend over backwards to help if you have a special request..... I will go back to this hotel again next year for sure. A great Holiday is always been had here!!!!

We just came back from our vacation in Kos and are more than enthusiastic about it!!
We enjoyed the lovely beaches, especially the ones near Kefalos;” Cavo Paradiso” and “Agios Stefanos” are of great beauty! What we also found great about Kos is the fact that the visitor has the option of travelling to nearby areas, as there are daily cruises from Kardamena and Kos to various destinations! We visited Nisyros, Symi and Bodrum! Nisyros and Symi are really pretty; narrow streets and colourful little houses make a lovely, worth to see scene! Regarding Nisyros don’t forget to visit volcano crater, one of the most important in the Mediterranean! If you choose to go to Bodrum you’d better go on Tuesdays, when the big bazaar takes place - unfortunately we lost it :(

Regarding the Norida Beach Hotel, we loved to relax at the pools of the hotel, which we found really nice and clean-we loved the “salty” one :) near the pool bar, but we also had fun at the pool with the waterslides (together with the little ones)!! The public areas were always clean and tidy! Food was of great variety and we were always polite served in the main restaurant of the hotel! (Don’t forget to taste the wonderful pizza!!) We also loved the Chinese restaurant; we ate twice there and the man serving us was always smiley and in a great mood!

Furthermore, we suggest that you rent bikes and take an afternoon ride to Kardamena! The rout is beautiful!

Last but not least we were very-very pleased of the staff; always helpful and polite! It’s nice to see smiley faces!

Definitely recommended!! :)

To start with the good stuff- we loved this hotel, had a family room in the main building just off to the side with a pool and sea view which was just right with 2 small children as their bedroom was just seperated by ours with glass windows in the walls, with blinds to pull down for privicy and a door in the middle, room was very clean and really nicely decorated. bathroom too was very nice, decent hairdryer and plenty of fresh towels daily. Had few ants on patio area but cleaner got rid of them. Fridge in room with drinks in, replace every other day which is great. Food and drinks were plentifull and a good variety. We booked restaurants at blue domes italian and mexican restaurants which were very nice overlooking the sea, waitress at mexican wasnt very pleasnt though! Also booked restaurants in norida - chinese and greek which were very nice too and really broke up eating in a buffet area over 2 weeks as you felt like you were somewhere else.
Reception staff were very good and tried to help with everything, very pleasant,very hard workers.
My children went to the mini club, which at 1st does seem too laid back, but Marta - who is the person in charge of the children is very,very good, she asks where you will be if child wants to go back or any problems, she tells you what they are planning to do,asks if your child has any allergies and is very,very attentive. Our 2 children absloulty loved it and would like me to thank marta on their behalf x x x .
If you go out for the day you can pre-order lunch boxes for the next day which are great, plenty of sandwiches, bottles of water,cartons of orange juice,fuit and cake inside, very,very good. Beach towels are changed every other day which i think is fair. Pools are nice one with water slides which the children loved,but be carefull as they are not manned very well, a deep pool and one with shallow end which is great for children and also with pool bar and just up from beach so nice to do both as sea was lovely and warm.Pebble/shingle beach which i must admit really wanted sandy, but my children loved it as they spent hours collecting sparkly tiny pebbles, there are some lovely beaches further down the coast if you hire a car( paradise bay is beautifull).
Entertainment is ok, better for small children, not the best weve had,emily very good though. Also have to mention the restaurant staff in main buffett restaurant as they were great too, all the staff work so hard,with a smile on their faces and work such long hours.
BAD STUFF- we were delayed and didnt arrive untill 12 at night.
Were told on arrival ( and three other families) that there were NO ROOMS available and that we would have to stay at a neighbouring hotel called the Atki for 2 NIGHTS this wasnt even on the Mitsis comples (which has 3 other hotels attached to it). I was absolutely disgusted and at 1st refused, but as my family were so tired i agreed as they said come back in the morning and see the reservations manager. at 9am.
We had to be picked up in the hotel bus to take us back, we saw the reservation manager, i was extremely cross, as was my husband ,saying that we wanted to be moved back straight away, he said couldnt as nothing was free! Told him the only way would go back to other hotel is if we were upgraded! Said he would do this plus agreed few other things which we requested, so we accepted it!! It did however spoil the 1st two days of our holiday in which we had to use things out of our suitcases as couldnt unpack, which is really hard especially when you have children with you! Apparantley this has happened quite a lot over the busy periods so BE WARNED.l I have given this hotel 4 stars for this reason.
This has given me reservatons on booking another Mitsis hotel in future which is a shame!!!

Room Tip: get room in main hotel or near pools seem the best

This hotel is very nice, staff can't do enough for you nothing is to much bother for them. The food is very good with plenty to choose from. You are not far from Kadamena where there are plenty of bars and restaurants. You can always book a day trip in Kadamena to Nisiros island which is lovely. There are also plenty of other day trips. The rooms were very nice and were cleaned everyday. You also have your mimi bar topped up every 2nd day so there are always cold drinks in your room. The beach is very clean and you were always able to find a nice spot on the beach. I loved the fact that there were plenty of pools also.

We have just returned from a two week stay 7th to 21st August at the Mitsis Norida Beach in Kardamena. We are a family of three who were given a two bedroom apartment at the back of the complex and up quite a hill but this was not a problem for us and we had super sea views from our balcony. Checkin and out was easy and we were taken to our room by a member of staff on a trolley vehicle and collected when we checked out. There are several pools two of which are salt water and one fresh water pool where the slides are. The main restaurant is huge and well organised, we had to que from time to time but hey we were on holiday so what's the rush anyway! The food was fairly repetative but extremely good and we tried both the Chinese and the Taverna restaurants which you have to book for and they were great. The evening entertainment in in a seperate building which we loved as thisis not really for us anyway and we met such lovely people whilst we were there we used to meet up in the main hotel after dinner and sit, have a few drinks and the kids would just play in the grounds or in the games room and they were perfectly safe and happy. The staff were accomodating and friendly and the whole experience was a really good one. This is a huge hotel so they will not be able to please everyone, we loved it and came hope after two weeks with no complaints. I have read some of the negative comments regarding ants and cockroaches and we had one cockroach in our room on two occasions and ants a couple of times but this was when our son spilled some fizzy cola. Once we cleaned it up they went away and I do not blame the holtel in any way for this. The rooms were cleaned daily and very well. We left money, passports and keys out the whole time and everything was exactly as we had left it each time we returned to our room. Simply a great holiday!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view so you are not facing inland
