This hotel is possibly one of the best I’ve ever stayed in. And believe me, I’ve stayed in a few! I’ve just got home from a six day visit to Kos for my niece’s wedding. The wedding party were all booked to stay at the Blue Lagoon complex, which although 5 star, wasn’t the kind of place I fancied. I found Olympia Mare on google and thought the reviews were good, so booked. I’m so glad I did. Nikos, the owner, is a brilliant host. I am disabled so requested a ground floor accommodation- TICK. I knew I was arriving early evening and would be tired so asked if he would get some basics in for me, TICK. I arrived to discover a fridge with all I would need. He also provided several bottles of water! The apartment was HUGE! I couldn’t believe how much space. A lovely kitchen area with everything provided, a dining area and lounge space, a separate bathroom and massive bedroom with super-king bed. Excellent air-con and small patio with comfy chairs and coffee table. The view is gorgeous- straight at the sea which is literally 50 yards away. Nikos arranged my car hire and had the guy (Rob) come to the hotel to sort the paperwork and deliver the car. Driving around Kos is easy and the trip up the road to Kardamena centre takes less than 3 minutes. I also drove through the town and up through the mountain to Pily and on another evening up to Zia. I drove several times to Kefalos and also to Kos. The whole island is full of interesting places to explore. Back to Olympia Mare: if you want a quiet and relaxing vacation where you’ll feel safe and your custom is appreciated, then this hotel is perfect. They have Two Stars but it is worth Five for the hospitality alone. Extremely clean, they have COVID safe procedure in place and the ladies who clean the rooms are simply delightful. I will definitely be returning. Oh and Nikos’ mum for whom the hotel is named is quite divine!

When we were looking for a place to stay in kos, we knew we didn’t want to be in the centre of kos town or the centre of kardamena town. We wanted somewhere tranquil and peaceful. We looked at Olympia Mare several times and were concerned about how close it seemed to be to the airport and how far away it seemed to be from the centre of kardamena. Well, we needn’t have worried about either issue. Here is a fantastic set of self catering accommodations which are enormous in size. The airport is not an issue and we could sleep easy at night. The local bus stops right outside and is literally a 6/7 minute journey into town. Nikos is the most hospitable owner I have ever met. Our flight home was at 1am and we checked out at midday. He allowed us to use the private beach all day. He offered us a place to keep our luggage. Plus, he offered us facilities where we could shower and freshen up. All this without any extra charge whatsoever. His hospitality and customer service was second to none. We are shocked this is only a 2 star accommodation. It deserves much much more. Thanks Nikos and see you in london Stelios and Linny

This had been a very relaxing and exciting holiday for us. Very helpful family that owns the hotel. Rooms are very comfortable and well equipped. Beach has sandy and mostly rocky places. Very silent and relaxing place at the southern part of the island. You can travel all around the island in 5 days.

On a first visit of Kos Island, we were blessed with having chosen the ideal hotel. The location is superb: on the sea, close to the center of the charming town of Kardamena and yet quiet and peaceful. One cannot write enough about the owner Nikos, his wife and mother. They have put a lot of love in this place and it shows. The service is flawless and the family is always on hand and ready to provide whatever it is guests may wish, from recommendations and directions to extra Illy coffee pods for the in-room coffee machine. The apartments are large and comfortable. Wonderful sea-view, strong WiFi signal, a full kitchen, and every comfort one may wish. We were impressed by the large bottles of first-rate bathroom toiletries as well as the unlimited Illy coffee pods and such thoughtful touches as enough mineral water for the week we stayed, a prompt and thorough maid service, and a drying rack for clothes, towels, and bathing suits. We were grateful to not see one single TV set in the entire hotel, as well as for the privacy and space of the private beach right in front of the hotel. This is a paradise we will feel privileged to come back to.
