“Lovely hotel, friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

We visited Carda Beach as a group of three couples, at the end of September. Carda beach is a beautiful hotel, lovely and clean, nice friendly and helpful staff. There was always plenty of sunbeds, no need to get up early and reserve! Good selection of food and drink, the evening bar was nice and lively, we spent a few nights there as it was end of season so a bit quiet in town. Short walk into town, water sports on the beach over the road. Only complaint would be the flies!! Buzzing around while your eating and getting on the food!
We also used the car rental and jeep rental service within the hotel, this was also really good. We all had massages in the hotel spa, it was lovley!
Would recommend Carda beach as a relaxing holiday for couples and friends.

We spent the first week of October at the Carda Beach. Our intention was to have a relaxing holiday doing absolutely nothing and that was exactly what we were able to do. We had a sea view suite at the top of the complex which was perfect for us. The room was kept spotless. It is quite a steep walk up to these rooms, but we didn't mind that one bit. If you're not accustomed to walking or have mobility issues I could see that this might be an issue but we saw it as a nice bit of exercise having laid in the sun all day. The pool and communal areas of the hotel were also kept spotless at all times. We spent much our time by the pool which was very peaceful. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. The food was plentiful and varied. As it's buffet-style and they are catering to so many people it's not amazing but it was absolutely fine.
The only small criticism is the hotel could be a little more open about what facilities are available - free wifi in the reception area, free beach towels each day, courtesy room on check out, food for late arrivals

Good aspects

Sensible flight times from Gatwick.
15 minutes from the airport but no airport noise.
No children as adults only
Excellent cleanliness in all areas.
Large spacious rooms.
A powerful hair-dryer.
Wet room shower.
Balcony's are not over looked
Plenty of loungers and no one running to put down towels.
10 minute walk into Kardamena.
Peaceful and restful
Great Spa treatments with comparable price to the Uk
Attentive staff but not intrusive
Well equipped gym, towels supplied.
Proper reading lights by the bed

Not so good aspects

Food is plentiful and fresh but often bland . The Italian restaurant is poor.This is subjective so i wont go on! Poor sign-age as to what dishes consist off.
Drinks are variable but we found the beer to be consistently good.Again subjective
Inconsistency in supplying tea and coffee to our room, sometimes we got milk sometimes we did not but we solved this by taking a glass of milk from the restaurant for our morning tea.

Tips
Peters will hire a quad for a few hours out of season if you do not want one for days.
Book tours in the town and not with the rep they are alot cheaper.
If you drink decaf coffee take your own, it is available in the restaurant but not in the rooms. Likewise if you have a preference for a particular brand of tea take your own.
Zeus boats (moored opposite the Velvet bar ) have some great trips and give a really good experience.
Wait for the buggy to come and take your luggage to the room

This was the second time me and my partner stayed at Carda Beach so where aware of some of its downsides and where well prepared.
I'm glad to say that this time was more relaxing as this is now an adult only hotel (there where a few 12-16 year old floating about from the sister hotel but where kept in order).
I would highly recomend hiring something from the lovley ladies at Peters or international rent a car, the island is tiny and we saw it all in 1 week. The views from the tops of the mountians where breathtaking.
Thomas cook where charging 20 euros to go to 1 beach and for 50 euros you could hire a buggie and see them all.
We took the trip to Turkey from Thomas Cook and we had done this before and was ok apart from the pestering from the shop keepers, my tip to you is if you do this trip take some earphones and some music and walk around with them in, we did this and found it alot more enjoyable.
On the advice of the ladie from Peters rent a bike we saw the sunset and had a lovley kabab from mastrchi (spelling not great) and was one of the best evenings we went back a couple of days later.
Depending what you want from your holiday this does the lot, relaxing by the pool/beach or adventuring in to the mountins or even seeing some peacocks in the forest (plaka) this location and hotel will do it for you.
Oh and our mini bar was filled every day but was warm.

My partner and I have just returned from Carda Beach Hotel and I have to say I loved every minute of it!! It was paradise! We booked as the reviews on trip advisor were very positive, and it did not disappoint!

The airport is only 10 mins away. We decided not to book a transfer and went to the taxi rank outside the airport, which costs no more than 20 Euros.

The food was delicious, lots of variety. The two restaurants; Chinese and Italian, had plenty of choices and large portions. Every night in the buffet restaurant there were a few dishes of the day with a chef serving things like traditional Greek food to chicken and many other meat and fish dishes.

The pools were gorgeous! Very big and spacious with plenty of sun loungers. There was no hassle to find a sun lounger at any point of the day. The private beach was nice a quiet, again with plenty of sun loungers. There are rocks as you go into the sea but once you are in there is soft sand and clear blue water.

There was no entertainment, however the sister hotel (family resort) is next door and you could go over and watch the entertainment every night and your all inclusive wrist band works there. As Carda Beach Hotel is an adults only resort we can use the sister hotel however the children can not use ours.

Our room was lovely and modern; plenty of space, cleaned daily, with a free safe, unlimited mini bar and free air conditioning. It was up a small hill, however due to this every room has a sea views with spacious balconies.

Kardamena is a ten minute walk away; we walked there after one evening and had a few drinks. There are lots of bars and clubs to choose from.

I recommend you hiring a buggy, We hired one and explored the island, it was easy to drive and get around the island as there are only a few main roads and the island it is not that big. You can see some stunning views and gorgeous beaches.

Please ignore any negative comments if you want a relaxing beach resort with delicious food and stunning views, look no further!! I would go back tomorrow if I could! :)

Room Tip: get a taxt to the hotel its only 20 euros each way

Having just returned from an extremely relaxing week at the Carda Beach i am writing down my thoughts of the hotel. Firstly its greatest asset are the staff who were all friendly and welcoming though not intrusive. The hotel is built on the side of a hill and a decent level of fitness is required but no where is far from the facilities and there is a buggy available to help with taking the luggage to the rooms. The rooms are terraced on thr hillside and situated so that the balconies of the rooms are not overlooked. The food suited us completely, fresh and with a lot of choice, plenty of salads with a variety of main dishes on offer each day. We did take advantage of both retaurants on site and found them both to be pleasant. The whole ambiance of the place was ideal for a restful holiday. The rooms were of a good size and the glass surround of the bathroom suited the room. The activity staff were young and enthusiastic even towards the end of the season they were still cheerful and happy to chat to everyone. The beach is just across the road the water is clear but care must be taken if going into the water as there are many rocks under the surface though this becomes sandy after a few metres. The pool is clean and cool with ample swimming space and was never crowded. Overall, this stay was just what was needed. Quiet and restful,

Room Tip: If you have any mobility issues ensure you have a room near to all the facilities
