“Great for families”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

Stayed here end Jul/Aug 2012. Pretty much well summed up by the rest of the reviews on here. Apartment was clean, spacious and well presented - we had two adjoining apartments with a shared balcony as we have 2 teenage cildren so they really had there own apartment. Clean towels were provided every day, bed linen changed 4 times a week. Our floors were mopped every day, although this may depend on individual cleaners as other guests were saying theirs wasn't. Air con was great but developed an annoying click. I reported it to reception and the guy was fixing it by the time I got back to the room, this really summed up the excellent service. Beds relatively comfy for Greece.

I found the food great, although a bit repetetive over 2 weeks. The kids moaned about the lack of nuggets and chips but always found something to choose from.

We found the staff, as well as the owners, professional and happy to chat if you wanted but left you alone if you didn't which suited us fine.

TIPS Take a kettle. Men take 3/4 or long trousers for dinner. Buy pop, etc from Kardamena at a fraction of the price of the on-site shop. Make sure you have overnight food and drink if you are checking in after 9pm. Hire the beach towels and get clean ones every day rather than taking your own.

We also got caught in the fire and would agree it could have been better coordinated. The hotel minibuses and coach drove off empty rather than assisting anyone with mobility problems. However, one of the owners did manage to flag one down to give us a lift to Kardamena as my wife has difficulty walking. The Thomsons reps were excellent, although drinks should have been provided free of charge by Thomsons as most of us only had swimwear and a couple of euros. It was a relief to return to the hotel a few hours later which was operating as though nothing had happened. This is testament to the Greeks, the whole area would have been sealed off for a week in the UK. A bit of ash, a burnt out fire engine and couple of rental vehicles and a smokey smell for a couple of days and that was the excitement over really.

All in all, an enjoyable holiday and would certainly recommend to others.

Room Tip: All rooms pretty much the same so not much in it. Minibus for higher rooms so not really a problem.

We had an excellent stay at the Aegean Village. The transfer was approx 8 mins which was great and hotel was stunning when we pulled up. The mini bus staff took our cases whilst we checked in and then took us to the room. The rooms were tidied with beds made and fresh towels daily, Use of a fridge was good to keep water in and free air con was appreciated.
The pool area was kept immaculate and plenty of sunbeds every day.
The animation team were fab & friendly, a lovely group of people who put on the shows and entertainment every day including beach volleyball, water aerobics, darts, table tennis, water polo, mini golf.
The food was good and always well presented at both breakfast and dinner. Plenty of selections, the only thing was men had to wear long trousers although my husband did get in with 3/4 shorts i think as long as they are over the knee you were ok.
On site shop little more expensive but had plenty of things in there. We walked to Kardamena most nights and only took approx 15 mins so no problem, nice walk down after dinner along the beach
I rate 10/10 and wouldn't hesitate in recommendation or returning there for another holiday

Room Tip: we had room 308 which didnt have to get the mini bus and had easy walking access from hotel areas an...

Our 2nd visit to Ageane village, not much has changed. The rooms have been modernised and were great, very clean. The bus men were very polite and helpful. The food has changed slightly, I found it quite repetative but it was nice and plenty of it. We ate out one night at captains resturant in lard amens as we got a little bored of the food. Unfortunately men had to wear trousers for evening meal, I was given a warning one night for wearing smart longish shorts which was a joke. A lot of the men were wearing three quarter track suit bottoms and they were allowed in, that I don't understand. Prices in the hotel are reasonable, lush milkshakes in the pool bar. Staf are great except for the two old men with Wilkie talkies, they were grumpy and horrible to the staf. Didn't see them smile once, they seemed to pop up everywhere. Overall the hotel is great with a great bus service to kardamena. I booked with Thompson and went on the three island cruise which I recommend if you like a swim, the boat was a little over packed so get on early for a sun bed. They tend to fill the boats to the max. Also I advise a day out in kos town, great shops but very warm. I also hired a quad and went around the whole island. Lots of nice beaches especially the kite boarding beach towards kefalos, also nice beach in tegaki. Lots of sun beds available, we went down at them a.m to find a tidy spot. Animation team worked hard but nobody really takes notice ha. I suggest walking to kardamena in the day as the pup reps are quite annoying. A few good shops in kardamena. Hope this review is helpful.

Room Tip: Try and book your room at the bottom. It's a mammoth of a walk to the top in the heat.

Stayed here1st Aug 7 nights Half Board. Couple in late 40's. Room 563 near the top. Great views.
Room Very nice, missed the kettle! Big let down for us. Arrived late, no water in fridge, shop shut!!. Should have been cleaned daily, we found that our cleaner made bed, wiped bathroom clean-ish! didnt wipe sides or sweep / mop all week.
The mini bus drivers were all great, we found it a pain though not being able to get to our room with ease.
Food....Breakfast ok if you like cooked, but no toast machine, no pots of yoguarts, just a big bowl..
Evenning meal... Not a good dinning experience, food boring, But at least you can eat it..
Entertainment, cant really comment as we went to Kardamena most nights. When in Aegean Village though we went to the terrace bar and the waiter there Herrios was fantastic, great service, very friendly, good English speaking also.
Spent one day round pool, rest on the beach as it was cooler and quieter. Not having kids to entertain, but the families round pool were all pleased with activities.
The wearing of trousers for the men, for the evenning meal is a joke, i dont think this hotel warrents it or a 4 star rating.
Although we had a good holiday, i would say this hotel is a good 3 star.

On our last day there was a fire in the mountains, and it spread to our hotel. We were on the beach at the time, we managed to get our bags out of the lugged store as we had already checked out, so we were very lucky..but then had to walk into Kadamena away from the fires with them.. There waiting were all the reps from travel companies taking names ect and we were put on coaches and taken away from the fires to another hotel, they all acted very quickly and although there were hundreds of people it was pretty well organised.Well done Thompson.
Luckily the Hotel only received smoke damage and we were taken back there after several hours.
The staff managed to clean everything up and prepare the evening meal!! As we were leaving that night i dont know what the rooms were like after the fire, but the smell was terrible, im glad we were leaving but felt very sorry for those staying and just arriving.
Overall i would say if you have a family its a nice resort, but for couples, could find better. Thompson Couples are very good. Older guests i wouldnt recommend it.

We have just returned from a family holiday at the lagas Aegean Village hotel in Kardamena, from start to finish food was great, pool area was clean tidy and plenty of room for everyone. Hotel staff were great a bit moody now and again but didnt affect our stay.

The room was spacious, very clean and the maid was very polite and respected us if we were not ready for her. The beach infront of the hotel offered water sports, sunbeads and a chilled out atmosphere. The children were kept entertained by the animation team.

The day before we were due to come home we experienced the mountain fire which did affect the hotel but the way we were evacuated was outstanding considering how fast the fire was spreading. We travelled with Thomas Cook and i cant praise the team they have over there in the resort. As we were ushered onto the beach Thomas Cook reps were the first to assist directing us to a bridge where their collegues were waiting to take our names and get us to a safe hotel. What they did that day amazes me and how calm they remained throughout. I will always travel with them in the future.

If your looking for a chilled out family holiday definatly choose Aegean Village.

Ok, lets talk about the positives, this has got to be the best hotel I have ever stayed in and is excellent value for money (£600 for week half board). The rooms are immaculate as is the whole of the hotel, no one reserved sunbeds as there was enough for everyone no matter what time of day. The staff are friendly and helpful and any issues were dealt with straight away. All rooms have air con which is a god send as the weather touched 50 degrees. The beach is just across the road and Kardamena centre is a 10 minute walk but I wouldn't recommend doing this during the day due to heat. The food was lovely as were the drinks but they were slightly expensive. Transfer time from airport only 10 mins.

I encountered some bad luck on my holiday, first of all i slipped on the marbled stairs in reception and bruised my back severley - the steps had been cleaned but there was no warning sign, staff just fobbed me off and still didnt put up a sign. On the second to last day of my holiday there was a forest fire right on the hill of the hotel, 1500 guest had to be evacuated for 5 hours, no thanx to the hotel staff. NO Fire alarms were raised it was only through using our initiative that we evacuated - the staff just ran away, not looking after guests, giving them water etc nothing. I find this very distressing as anyone could have been trapped in there - the hotel definetly have to review their fire safety procedures.

The Thomas Cook rep was awful, she brought the wrong map to the meeting (map of kos town instead of kardamena) and the reps were no where to be seen when we were evacuated it was only due to the neighbouring hotel german rep who gave us the information we needed.
Whatever you do DONT book the excusrion to Bodrum - waste of money - it was badly organised we ended up doin our own tour as we waited 1 hour for minibuses to take us on our tour so everyone gave up. You can get better excursions from kardamena for the fraction of the price.

Even with all the bad luck I have had I would still return to this hotel - ive fallen in love with it but maybe with Thomson instead.
