Sailors Apartments
Ranked #44 of 63 Specialty Lodging in Kavos
Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

The actual room itself wasn't too bad. There is a maid that cleans everyday and she was friendly and polite. The owner was also polite and helpful. We had to pay an extra 7 euros per night per bedroom for air con so it's an added expense if your on a budget. Overall the room was fine and served its purpose.

The noise from the club opposite is almost unbearable, you might as well be sleeping in the club it's that loud. Unless your out every single night of your holiday there is no way u will sleep if your not totally smashed.It's stops around 5am.

The pool is really nice and the beach a few steps further again with gorgeous views! The bar is quite pricey but the food was reasonable and very tasty. Perfect place to nurse a hangover during the day (if you don't mind cats!)

This hotel is only for serious clubbers and is literally right in the middle of the strip so if partying is what u Want then go!

If you're visiting Kavos for a clubbing holiday, then these apartments are perfect! They are situated right in the middle of the main Kavos strip! Although this comes with a huge downside...very loud music from 11pm to 5am.

The rooms are fairly basic, but provide everything you'll need...bed, shower, toilet, cooker, kettle, toaster etc.The pool area is decent size, good sun loungers (that are 2euros but if you say that youre staying at the apartments they dont make you pay) and a poolside bar and shaded seating area. The apartements are located directly on the beach, so 1 minute walk!

The owner and his son are lovely and welcoming, they'll try and meet your needs as much as possible.Apart from the loud music, everything about this holiday was perfect! Would recommend to anyone looking for an 18-30's type holiday.

Dear guests,

The noise from the Madison's Bar will only affect you during the high season, from the 10th of June till the 10th of September, during the low season this bar is closed normally and we can easily change your room to the other block where it is quieter anyway as we have plenty of spare rooms. Please refer to our webpage for more information.

Many thanks
Vassilis

Noisy, dirty and unpleasent. No suitable for couples at all. Beware the owners friend, he is a complete sleaze, he owns a boat and is very intimidating and full of sexually aimed comments. Beds r horrible, ants everywhere. Found out on the last day that this place is also a vets, that is right next to the kitchen, not hygienic at all.

Room Tip: Do not stay on the strip, look at Kavos plaza.

Dear Rach 248,

We are really sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at Sailors Apartments, we would like to make it clear that we have no connection with this person, he is not employed by Sailors Apartments and has never been, he is resident in the neighborhood and not just at us and sells boat trips on the beach, we have made several complaints but this is a small community and the local police will not deal with these type of problems. Please beware of this person but we must admit that his boat trips are worth it if you like the booze cruise.

Best regards
Sailors Apartments

Thought the hotel was a good base for a stay in Kavos, close to the main strip and 2 mins from the beach. The hotel is very noisy all day and night, but this is to be expected in a resort mainly aimed at 18-30's.

The beach bar is nice but quite overpriced, and you have to pay for sun loungers around the hotel pool, which meant anyone could come and use them, even if you're not staying at the hotel.

The owner greeted us after a late night flight and I thought was quite abrupt, there was no check in process - he just left us outside our room with our bags!

The room was quite spacious, but very basic. The balcony was overgrown and swarming with beasties. The bathroom was more of a wetroom, which is typical of Greece.

The pool area is nice, you have a good view of the sea and the beach is right at the back of the hotel. The pool is very small, and can be quite cold at times.

The beach is full of litter and there were even used condoms floating around in the sea!! We went on a boat trip to the mainland one day where the beach was much more pleasant.

You are constantly hassled by looky looky men (more than anywhere else I have experienced) they find it difficult to understand 'No' and want to keep you talking for hours... same goes for bar reps who approach you all the time no matter if you're walking, lying on the beach or swimming in the pool. This is common all over I know but something I find really irritating. The fact that they're free to walk off the street and bother you in your hotel area is even worse.

One night we returned to find Albanians setting up home in a skip outside our room.... not good.

The location was good for exploring Kavos and the beach, this is the hotels only plus point.

I had no dealings with staff, when I did (to order drinks etc) I found them to be rude and dis-interested.

The Cosmos rep (Gemma I think) was terrible - only interested in selling tickets for their bar crawl, 20 euros for a club night in Atlantis which was free on the door - what a con!!

One day when she came for her visit she didn't even try to mask the fact that she was still drunk from the night before! As the face of the company they should maintain a certain degree of professionalism - regardless of the type of resort they're working in.

I was 18 at the time of my visit, and was, and still am a regular visitor to nightclubs all over the world - I have visited many of the popular 18-30 destinations and can honestly say this was the worst of them all.

Kavos is a litter strewn resort, and the Sailors Apartments reinforces this image. Would not visit again and would not recommend to anyone.

If you want a good clubbing holiday pay a little bit extra and try Ibiza - you won't regret it.

Stayed at Sailors for 1 week, right in the middle of the resort, close proximity to the best restaurants and bars. Right next to the beach, the pool was also very nice. The room was basic but was cleaned every day and the staff were very friendly.The boat trips to Paxos, Aqualand, etc were definately worth it as there is not much to do in Kavos during the day. Would definately stay there again if went back to Kavos.

looking around we could have stayed in lots of other apartments that were a lot better. it was very basic and very noisy. we could hear everything in the next room from them talking, having a shower and even going to the toilet. if your over 5ft there is no chance you will fit in the bed that is like sleeping on a concrete floor. no clean towels all week. situated right next to a night club and bar that you dont have to even go in because you can hear the people, reps and music so clearly, right up until 7am.
this spolit our stay. we loved kavos, the bars and clubs but we could not stay up till 7am for 7 nights. i could not wait to go home to a comfy and quiet bed
