Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Hotel stylish and very modern, fantactic pools, pool areas very clean, excellent gym, plenty of sunbeds a big plus, adults only nice and peacefull. There is a main restaurant breakfast, lunch, dinner, food could be a bit bland at times, plenty of choice could always find something to eat, waiting staff very friendly and helpfull. There is also a Chinese and Italian restaurant you can use twice a week, you will have to book in advance both restaurant is a four course meal good size portions esp the Chinese, food in both are very good.

Room stylish and modern very large with great sea views, very clean, kingsize bed, tv, fridge, tea coffee, kettle, great hairdryer, bath robes and slippers, plenty of storage space, free air con, free safe, room cleaned every day, fresh towels and clean linnen, fridge stocked up with soft drinks, water, beer. Room number 2216 half way up a steep hill, if you have any walking difficulites request a pool and sea view room there on ground level.

Negatives; There was no porter to help with our luggage on arrivel, or to show us to our room.
The local spirits are very poor quality, so was the soft drinks, we ended up buying our own drinks and taking them into the bar at night, which was an other added expence to our holiday, the wine and beer were drinkable. If the hotel improved on these minor hiccupps, the hotel would be most defo a five star.

Weather was great for the two weeks over 30 everyday. We would go back to the carda hotel, made nice friends Jim and Mary. Kardamena 10 min walk well worth a visit plenty of shops and bars. Try Captains resturant food is great. Hope the review is helpfull.

Room Tip: Room 2216 great sea views got the sun most of the morning, up a steap hill, so if you have any walki...

While I would agree with parts of some of the reviews. Sadly my partner and I felt a bit let down, weather great, pool great sun beds plenty if you enjoy sitting on other peoples laps really cramped together. Pool side refreshments a big let down drinks yes, snacks rubbish unless you were willing to pay for them, all inclusive nah. ( dried up sandwiches with a teeny bit of lettuce one slice of tomato if you were lucky ) Drinks only served till 11 o'clock we understood it was till 12, wrong and they were not so good. Some of the bar staff were ok others were not, it felt like they were counting how many drinks you had, there were six of us my partner and myself went to get a round of drinks two shorts and three beers, he was told he could have only one drink at a time, he told the barman there were 6 people ( what did they want us to do have one drink and six straws ) The barman wasn't paid to tell us what we could & could not have to drink. Entertainment was totally crap, adults only hotel but some adults like a little bit of evening entertainment don't they ? If you don't want to mountain climb ask for a pool view. We were there for 2 weeks 1 would have been plenty. A couple who we met couldn't keep there room, they were offered a curtersey room AT THE SISTER HOTEL the lady was given the cleaners cupboard with a shower sorry 2 showers in, no hair dryer, mirror nothing so be aware of the curtersey. Good luck.

Room Tip: ask for a pool view.

Me and my boyfriend spend 11 days in Carda beach hotel and we absolutely loved it! If you are used to five star hotels in the UK, Germeny or just wherever in western Europe, you might be a bit dissapointed, but Greece is just different in this aspect. But if you have visited Greece before you know this.

So first I will probably write about the food. Before we left for Carda I read a lot of the review and going there I was a bit nervous about the food. But it was great! There was a whole bunch of food to choose from. For breakfast there were beans, bacon, eggs, about 6 kinds of sweet pastry, cakes, a lot of vegetables and fruit to choose from, cereal, pudding and a lot more stuff of course. For lunch and dinner there was a lot of meat ( there was always pork and than two to three other kinds of meat - durring our stay there was turkey, chicken, beef, lamb and veal, so I really don´t understand the people who wrote that there was pure variety of meat), also there was always pasta (spaghetti and two kinds of sauce - bolognese and napoleon, and two kind of pasta were already perpared and mixed with sauce, those were different every day), there was about seven to ten kinds of mixed salads (pasta, lentil, with tuna, just vegetable etc. + 5 kinds of dressing), gyros, again a lot of fruit. There were always french fries, rice, fried potatoes and mashed potatoes as side dishes and usually 6 kind of dessert (not including the cakes- three to four cakes). Oh and also great ice cream! Of course there was a lot more food, but I would spedt a whole day remebering and writting it out. The food DOES change! Of course some of the main things stay the same every day - usually the breakfast was the same, because there was some much stuff and there isn´t really much things to change about breakfast. But there really is so much food, that you can have a different breakfast every day if youre not a picky eater. If you do get tired of the food though there is two restaurants in the hotel ( you can eat at each once a week for free) - Chinese and Italian. We enjoyed both, but found the Italian better. In each of there reastaurants you may get a four course menu (soup,salad, main course, dessert). If you decide to eat out I can greatly recommend a restaurant called Avli (in Kardamena, its like a 15min walk). Not only is the food there delicious (and typically greek) but it is also absolutely beautiful!

We visited in October (1-11) and the wheather was great (33-36celsius).

The pools are awesome..clean all the time (just like everything in this hotel). We didn´t use the Spa.

Oh, also I remember the reviews saying that they don´t change the towels and the bedding. That was a bit misinterperted because on your night table there is a paper saying that if you do want to have your bedding changed you should put the paper on your pillow, otherwise they are not going to change it (so they dont waste water). The same thing for the towels, there is a paper in the bathroom asking you to leave your towels on the bathroom floor if you want them changed.

The rooms are gorgeous, but you can obviously see that in the pictures. It is true that the hotel was built on a hill so some of the rooms are a 6 minute walk up hill, so if you mind that or have some health problems it might be better to book a room closer to the reception.

Drinks at the bar are totally fine. You get them in plastic cups (some of the people found that a bit offensive but in the afternoon it can really get windy and it is better to have plastic cups rolling on the floor - which are always collected by the bar staff each 30minutes- then having broken glass everywhere, so we found that totally understandible.). I must say though, that a cuba libre is usually half coke and half rum- they really make the drinks pretty strong :-). Local wine was very good.

The staff was very nice.

If you are a "total beach lover" you might not enjoy this place. I personally love the beach and this carda beach is not so beautiful. First of all it has a road right behind it, it not loud and I wasnt bothered by it. But I was just kind of bothered just by the thought, that there is a road. Otherwise it is a typical Kos beach - hard sand, sometimes black sand. But if you was wide beaches Greece doesn´t really offer those - Turkey would probably be your choice. And if you are looking for totally turquoise water you would probably want to go to Zakhyntos instead. BUT the hotel is so great that I cant really let this be a let-down. And also the sea was great - a bit rocky in the beginning (I had my swimming shoes with me but later as I got use to this I didnt even use them, nothing sharp) But after about 5 metres there is just sand.

The Wifi only worked in the reception during our stay, I dont know if thats always like that. But really - why would you need internet on such a perfect vacation? :-)

Just back from a fabulous 7 nights at Carda Beach. 30C plus every day with no clouds. Excellent swimming pools and close to beach so swam every day. All inclusive pack with excellent choice of food from all the restaurants. Staff very helpful and attentive. Wonderful value via Broadway Travel but flight changed from Stansted to Gatwick which has to be the worst airport in the world- would not fly from there again. If one wanted to be picky then not having waiter service is not what you might expect from a 5 star rating but this seems to be the norm on the continent and was not a problem for us as you could easily see the excellent selection of food and mix and match as required- all food was displayed in fairly small dishes and replaced with fresh food regularly. Rooms spacious and bathroom superb with all linen and towels changed daily. We hired a car from Auto Union for about £90 but hardly used it as almost everything you wanted was at the hotel. One little niggle was the use of dispensers for all mixers which were of poor quality and made a G&T undrinkable. Solved this by purchasing branded tonic from the supermarket. Beer and wine fine and freely available at lunch and dinner.A joy to have an adult only break with no screaming kids.Superking bed very firm and took a night or two to get used to.

Room Tip: Rooms can be quite a way from the main hotel building so unfit or elderly should request.rooms close...

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
