Just got back from Roses Studios and if cheap and cheerful is what you want that is what you will get!!!' The apartment is small and does not have a full length wardrobe (so not good if you take maxi dresses on holiday). The bathroom is very tired and needs updating and you will not always get a warm shower in the evening. Although you could see the sea from our balcony it was obscured by a large bank of bushes (which was a pity). Room was cleaned once while we were there but we could have done with a brush or mop to keep that floors clean. The family the Dolphin Bar and studios could not have been nicer and made you feel very welcome. All in all a good stay but don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed!

Lovely little family run apartments. Basic but very clean, 30 seconds from the beach, 2 minutes to the nearest little shop.
Each room has a good fridge, good firm beds, a balcony, and a safe for €10.00.
Right next door is the Dolphin Rock bar run by the same family which has a lovely pool complex for your use for the price of a beer which you're going to have anyway.
Manolis and his family could not have been more friendly and welcoming if they tried. The bar is reasonably priced and plays good rock music, they also show HD sports sometimes with the sound down so you get the best of both worlds.
We will come back.

Me and my girlfriend just got back 2 days ago from a fantastic holiday. We stayed two weeks and Roses Studios and it was all perfect. Manolis who looks after the studios and runs the bat attached to the studios was super nice and very helpful. So was his wife!
We arrived very late, just before midnight, Manolis helped us with luggage, made us food and was very pleasant. The room is small but it was very clean (10/10). We stayed in room 7 and enjoyed the late sunshine on the balcony every day. The beach is 60 seconds walk away and
for me at the nicest part of the resort.
The only thing missing was mosquito nets at the windows.

The pool attached to the bar (you have to buy a drink if you want to use it but one needs to drink anyway) was good as well. We used it occasionally after the beach. Manolis and his family clean the pool religiously.

I know you can perhaps better value for money in Kefalos but if you book last minute and Roses Studios comes up on the top of the listing I would book it again.

I wish Manolis, his wife and their beautiful baby all the best! Keep the good work going!

Room Tip: We stayed in room no 7, no 1 gets a bit noisy sometimes

Enjoyed 7 nights at Roses apartments and found it to be spot on!!
Manolis and Sanja were very hospitable and perfect hosts.The pool and pool area was very clean and well maintained.
Apartments were typical Greece and were cleaned regularly to a high standard.
Dolphin bar was a good place for a snack during the day and a nice place to start and finish your night,good music and good atmosphere and always very pleasant people here.
Perfect location for the beach and a 10-15 minute walk to central Keflos.
I would recommend Roses and Dolphin and ignore negative reviews.Would revisit if the chance comes.

As a young family on a budget this was the perfect choice. Rooms are basic but very clean and well maintained. I was very surprised to read negative reviews as we had a wonderful time and will return. Pool area is very clean and well looked after and the hosts were extremely welcoming and very family friendly. The bar has a great atmosphere and again Manoli and Sanja were very attentive and laid back.

The accommodation is situated in the quieter part of the resort but with a great pool and the beach a stones throw away really is a perfect location.

Thank you for such a brilliant holiday, we will hopefully see you again soon.

Just coming to the end of my stay at Roses apartments and cannot remember having a more relaxing holiday . The accommodation is situated at the quiet end of Kefalos which suited us fine . We did walk into the centre of the village on a couple of nights along a path which runs next to the sea . The accommodation was just right for us as we spent most of our time either at their excellent pool or on the beach which is just behind. We had the option of booking larger rooms in other venues but rathered the location of roses. There are plenty of excellent restaurants a few doors down and the Dolphin bar at front of accommodation did great snacks for lunchtime. The bar is also a great place to spend an evening with a great selection of good quality rock videos shown each night. I'm really sorry to be leaving but will definitely be back next year !
