I stayed in this hotel many years ago when it was run by Freestyle or some other faux-Club 18-30 company but in July 2011 I returned for a week and it is now a Club 18-30 hotel.
The hotel is towards the bottom of the Strip (or the top depending on how you look at it) which means that you will be one of the first people off the coach transfer which is always good and it means you can start off and booze your way down the Strip or booze your way back etc.
Also the hotel is right on the beach which means you can give the Strip a miss and walk along the beach to the after party club that is on the beac; forgotton its name though.
The hotel is made of the main hotel building and three annexes. When I first visited in 2009 I stayed in annex B and the room was relatively roomy. My room in July 2011 wasn't great but then I again I worked out I spent less than three hours per day there (would get back at 8am every morning, nap til 9am then go to the pool then return to the room to get ready and booze in the evenings!) so I didn't mind too much. There were two of us in the room which basically contained two beds (a bit too close together if I'm being honest) and a fridge; that was it and there was very little space to move around. The bathroom was tiny and of course the shower curtain didn't stop the bathroom turning into a wet room after every shower!
The pool isn't huge but seems to be perfect size for the hotel as mainly people are splashing around or lying on inflatables. There are plenty of sunbeds on around the pool and a couple on the beach which are free.
Good news; the bar is open 24 hours a day and there is rarely a time when there is no one down there so you always can strike up a conversation with someone. Drinks were cheap and they do specials at around 8pm ish so everyone from the hotel is around the bar before hitting the Strip which is good as getting to talk to everyone etc. The bar also serves food including Pot Noodles which can hit the spot after a few days of non-stop partying in Kavos! I think it is every Thursday when they have a pool party where drinks are €1 and there is a competition to see how many drinks people from each region can drink.
Overall: Stayed here two times and although I'm probably too old to go back to Kavos, if I did then I would definetly go back here as the location was really good and there is such a friendly atmosophere around the pool.
Also the majority of other hotels in Kavos are pretty dire so this one is definetly the best of the bunch!
