"Perfect relaxing holiday on the beach"

Rate:  5 Stars

Wonderfully situated, perfectly clean accommodation just a few kilometres from Kardamena. We enjoyed swimming, sitting in the shade of the trees on the beach and the views over to Nisyros. We also appreciated the advice and local information about the island from Nikos. The apartment was spacious, very comfortable with air-conditioning and great views from the balcony.

Room tip: Rooms on the second floor have good views.

"original Greek charm"

Rate:  5 Stars

Quiet and relaxing atmosphere, Olympia Mare still has the original Greek charm. Family run apartments that make you feel at home and welcome, you will want to return after you leave. I have been coming to Kardamena for over 30 years, and this, in my opinion, is the best place to stay.
The beach in front of Olympia is probably the best swimming you`ll find in that area. Sand all the way when you walk in, and clear, clean water. Beach sun beds for the guests are free, and also trees along the beach if you want shade. There is good snorkelling and it is windy enough for windsurfing, (which I do a lot when I am there) and kite boarding. And all this is just a few meters from your room. It has the feel of a private beach, because it is almost exclusively used by the guests of Olympia.
Being 2 km outside of Kardamena makes this a perfect base for renting a car or bike and exploring the island from this location. There is also a bus stop in front of the Hotel, Nikos will give you the time schedule. It is a 20 min. walk to Kardamena.
The apartments are very spacious and very clean. All bedrooms have a balcony or terrace, and all apartments have living room area and kitchenette. One of my favourite things to do at the end of the day is to sit on the balcony (beer in Hand) and enjoy the most beautiful view of Greek islands and Turkey. Watching the full moon rising from this location is spectacular.
Even when Olympia is completely full, it is still quiet and peaceful. The guests come from all over the world which adds to the atmosphere.
Nikos, your host and the owner, is full of information and will give you good suggestions on where to go on the island and recommend good restaurants.
Wi-Fi is available in the lobby, and outside underneath the grapevines.
The village of Kardamena offers good Restaurants (Posidonia is our favourite and the Laikon has the best Pizza in town, you can even order it to your room) and is a good destination for all ages.

"A great place and a gracious host"

Rate:  5 Stars

Olympia Mare is a bit secluded complex of apartments of various sizes with airconditioned rooms, kitchenette and a terrace or balcony ( if you are staying on the upper floor). The rooms are spacious, the cleaning lady comes every day, and towels are changed daily. The complex and the private beach give you the felling that you are far from the hordes of tourist that invade Kardamena. Nikos, the owner of the place, is always available and has great pointers on what to see and where to go. I would recommend renting a car but at my age (64) - I am a bit spoiled and like convenience. A great place to stay on the island if you want peace, quiet and the nature about you.

"POSTO SPLENDIDO, ESEMPLARE GESTIONE DI NIKOS"

Rate:  5 Stars

Siamo ritornati all`Olympia Mare e come l`anno precedente siamo stati contentissimi della qualità del soggiorno. L`appartamento è ottimo, pulitissimo, confortevole, con un punto cottura e un bagno nel quale non manca nulla. Di fronte un mare meraviglioso. La posizione defilata rispetto al centro del paese garantisce una maggiore tranquillità. Imbattibile poi il senso di ospitalità di Nikos che parla perfettamente l`italiano per chi non sapesse l`inglese. Grazie, Roberto e Giuliana

"La sorpresa di svegliarsi con il rumore delle onde del mare"

Rate:  5 Stars

Siamo appena tornati da un breve soggiorno all`Olympia mare e, con negli occhi ancora il bellissimo panorama che si ammira dalla terrazza dell`appartamento, ci sentiamo di consigliare vivamente questa struttura.Gli appartamenti sono funzionali, arredati con gusto e molto puliti.
La biancheria è in ottimo stato e il cambio è frequente (anche quotidiano se è necessario)
La struttura è a meno di 2 Km da Kardamena e in mancanza di auto,c`è un autobus che si ferma davanti.
Il proprietario,Nikos,è una persona estremamente disponibile e pronta ad aiutare gli ospiti per ogni loro necessità.
Non resta che andare!!!

"Posizione ottimale"

Rate:  5 Stars

Avevo letto le recensioni su questo residence e devo dire che le informazioni erano giuste. Situato a pochi metri dalla spiaggia, affaccia su un mare con tutte le gradazioni del blu. L`ombrellone non serve, sulla spiaggia ci sono diversi alberi di tamericio e ginepro che offrono una buona ombreggiatura. Spicca la cordialità e la disponibilità dei gestori Monica e Nikos, fonti inesauribili per ogni tipo di informazione sull`isola. Distante circa quindici minuti a piedi dalla cittadina di Kardamena, è un posto tranquillo e rilassante. Le stanza sono grandi, pulite e luminose. Indimenticabili le cene sul terrazzino vista mare. Noi abbiamo preso un`auto a noleggio per visitare anche altre zone dell`isola; se non si è intenzionati a girare molto si può utilizzare l`autobus del servizio pubblico che ferma proprio davanti all`Olympia Mare.

"Luogo ideale per godersi il mare e riposarsi"

Rate:  5 Stars

Grazie ancora a Nikos, la sua ospitalità è andata ben oltre la normale accoglienza, tanto è vero che, dopo il primi assaggio in giugno, ci siamo tornati in Settembre.
Il posto ideale per chi vuole godersi il mare, la tranquillità, in un ambiente pulito, dotato di tutto ciò di cui si può aver bisogno in vacanza

"Emozionante..mi manca!"

Rate:  5 Stars

Semplicemente perfetto! Io e il mio ragazzo abbiamo soggiornato all`olympia mare per dieci giorni nel settembre 2012. Siamo stati d`incanto! Gli appartamenti sono spaziosi,belli e pulitissimi..e in riva al mare! Se ci si siede sul balcone alla sera si è coccolati dal vento greco e dal rumore delle onde di quel meraviglioso mare blu..la pace dei sensi! Essendo a 5 minuti in motorino dal centro(forse anche meno) non è invaso dal frastuono e dalle luci dei locali e...si vedono le stelle! Durante il giorno per chi non ha voglia di muoversi è perfetto visto che ci sono la spiaggia e il mare fuori dalla porta della stanza. Per chi passa la giornata in giro x l`isola è l`ideale per riposarsi e rilassarsi prima di andare a bere qualcosa nei pub del centro. Il proprietario è gentilissimo e disponibile e da un sacco di informazioni e consigli su dove andare,cosa visitare e cosa fare. ho lasciato un pezzo del mio cuore a Kos e all`olympia mare!

"Very Calming"

Rate:  4 Stars

We have just returned from our first holiday to Kos staying at this hotel. All the reviews for this hotel are amazing and I wouldn’t disagree however I don’t know if there had been a very rough sea prior to our visit but the beach was somewhat disappointing. As you can see from my two photos, there were many rocks to be found and the only way to get in the sea to swim was to negotiate over the rocks. Once beyond the rocks the waters were clear and a very pleasant swim could be had. The sand on the beach was dark, even black in places and very course not soft white sand as can be seen in other photos on the website for this location.

I would recommend that you collect some essential provisions on your way from the airport as there is nowhere to purchase. We hired a car for 10 days out of 14. The alternative is a reliable bus service although they only run 5 or 6 times a day in May. A cab cost 7 Euro.

The kitching equipment is as basic as you will find but we managed to turn out some good meals and Captains Restaurant was a favorite for not just fine food and comfortable surroundings but the staff made us feel most welcome indeed. Super place.

Nikkos the owner of the hotel is as charming as already mentioned in the reviews. Nothing is too much trouble and he provided anything we asked for if it wasn’t already supplied.

I don’t think I am being negative in this review, we had a lovely time in what I can only describe as a tranquille setting and we returned home relaxed and recharged. Thank you Nikkos for making our holiday one of the best we have had!

Room tip: All the rooms have own private balcony on the upper floor with amazing sea views. Be prepared to com...

The location is great, with a nice private beach in front of the rooms, very close to the city center but quite at the same time, the owner is a super nice guy that will provide you all the infos that you need on everything, the rooms are cleaned every day an the quality/price ratio is the best that you can find What else can i say, it`s simply the place to choose if you`re staying in Kardamena!

"Fantastico."

Rate:  5 Stars

Abbiamo soggiornato a Luglio 2012. Stupendo.
CAMERE: pulitissime, molto fresche, comode e spaziose. A due passi dal mare. Due passi sono due passi di numero.
MARE: spiaggia di sabbia e ciottoli, acqua freschina ma farsi il bagno è un piacere. Consigliate le scarpette per l`ingresso in acqua anche se dopo pochi metri c`è solo sabbia e le scarpette non servono più.
CLIMA: sole sole sole anche se c`è caldo il vento mitiga tutto ed è puro piacere. Una sera abbiamo anche messo la felpa.
Si consiglia la macchina, tanti posti dove si mangia benissimo e si paga poco.
Nikos è gentile e competente. Mai visto un posto in vita mia con un miglior rapporto qualità prezzo.
Noi non amiamo ritornare nello stesso posto ma girare, per questo posto faremo un eccezione.
RELAX MARE SOLE cosa pretendere di più.
Un solo punto da migliorare il numero di lettini.

"Perfect"

Rate:  5 Stars

The perfect spot for a break from the tourists of Bodrum. An easy ferry ride across the strait to Kos and a 40 min taxi ride to Kardamena. Olympia Mare is situated out of town with its` own beach frontage (without having to coss a road). The apartments are large, airy and immaculately clean and provided with everything you need (including a beach towel).Short cheap taxi rides get you to town or the airport or there is a periodic bus which stops out the front of the apartments. The owner Nikos is a most friendly and helpful gentleman and nothing was too much trouble for him, his advice was invaluable. Highly reccommended.

"A truly relaxing experience!"

Rate:  5 Stars

We loved these apartments, which are perfect for a peaceful romantic break. They offered a real sense of Greece and traditional Greek hospitality.

The apartments were in a quiet location and right on a sandy beach, which was quite secluded. The beach stretches all the way into Kardamena. This is the only accommodation we saw that doesn`t have a road separating it from the beach. There were free sunbeds and umbrellas and they even had lilos available for guests to use.

The room was clean and spacious and offered spectacular sea views of Nisyros and Turkey on one side and a chance to watch the sun go down behind the beautiful mountains on the other side. It was lovely to chill out on the balcony of an evening and watch the moon rise over the horizon. The balcony was also completely private, so there was no bumping into other guests while we were trying to relax.

It was a fair walk into the resort of Kardamena, but we enjoyed the stroll along the coast road, which was well lit at night for the walk back. When we didn`t fancy the walk, a cab ride was only a few euro.

The family who run the apartments were really friendly and helpful. Nikos couldn`t do enough for us, whether it was providing information, booking a cab or even ordering us a pizza when we wanted a night in. We really felt looked after by him and it seemed that nothing was too much trouble.

We would definately return to the Olympia Mare. After more than 20 years of visiting Kardamena, this is the best self catering accommodation I`ve found. We almost don`t want others to know of our discovery, but we feel that the lovely family who run this place deserve to have this favourable review.
