6 / 10

I stayed at the plaza back in sept 07 with 2 girlfriends ,i would def have to dis-agree with first comment made about the place.Yes it is basic but are'nt all self catering properties in greece.We enjoyed our stay at the plaza and all the staff were great ,our rooms were cleaned everyday and beds changed every other.cant fault the apts and i have def stayed in much worse.it's the resort itself that is a let down ,kavos has had its day, it's in need of a good clean up and when we went in sept 14th the place was shutting down .There was no night clubs open and alot of the nicer bars had also closed for the winter.and as for the the cockerals there was 2 and the rest of them are chickens ,yes they make some noise but are entertaining to watch as is the little lady who owns them .overall the plaza is clean,comfortable,friendly and just far enough away from the noise of kavos.

8 / 10

I just wanted to add a review for the Kavos Plaza as the previous one doesn't really do it justice!

I went to Kavos and stayed at the Plaza in June 2005 for one week. My friend and I loved it that much we decided to fly back again 2 days later and stayed there for the whole season!

The rooms were clean and comfortable, enough so for a 12 week stay. The shower did flood on occasion, however you'll be hard pushed to find a Greek shower that won't after 2 girls using it for half an hour each!

I actually forgot about the roosters and reading the above review made me laugh out loud! Ah, it's all part of the fun!

I have such fond memories of this place, the food was good, the owner was lovely and we met some great people. It is for the young and lively but that's pretty obvious when you book, you're in Kavos! Great fun!

This apartment block is situated in... by N Chambers
7 / 10

This apartment block is situated in just the right place if you want to be near to the nightlife but far enough away to sleep if you want to. The rooms are small and basic but they're adequate. Didnt think much to the host, cant remember her name but she owns the building.

We arrived early in the morning and when shown to our room, we couldn't lock the door and because it was so early (and we were tired), we just shut it to and went to sleep. Having woken later we reported this to her and she said 'oh it be ok, nobody go in your room don't worry about it.' But we insisted something was done, which it was some time later that day. We found she was very ignorant with us after that and seemed she didn't like the fact we complained. We felt uncomfortable by the pool so we tended to go out and about on a moped which we hired for a week.

It is a nice apartment block and we would go again but she is very ignorant. Kavos is brill but don't go at the beginning of Sept because it all shuts down. Head for Atlantis its ace and it goes on till the early hours. Food is cheap you can have a 3 course meal for about £5-7 and there's a variety of restaurants to chose from.

I would recommend this holiday to anyone and I am in my thirtys. There are plenty of young people but we didn't feel at all out of place we partied hard with the best of them.

Where to begin!! - My fiancée and... by A J X
4 / 10

Where to begin!! - My fiancée and myself just wanted a cheap holiday before our main honeymoon next year and believe me - that’s EXACTLY what we got!!! We chose this venue due to the above good reviews but were bitterly disappointed.

Firstly before the moan, the staff were very friendly and pleasant - no qualms there at all.

1. The Room - EXTREMELY basic, floor was constantly dusty (doesn't help that my fiancée is asthmatic and would NOT stop coughing the whole holiday!), cigarette burns in the sheets, a kettle that didn't work, the ONLY cutlery was spoons! There were a few pans, however no plates/cups - how do we eat, with our hands!!.

CONSTANT noise as our room just so happened to be on the closest edge to the bar, we could virtually hear all conversations there until the very early hours.

*** Looking in other people's rooms it did seem like we were given the shortest straw. ***

2. The Bar - On arrival, as you could expect we were very hungry and ordered some food to which the owners lad cooked for us - didn't see him wash his hands and believe me, they were like he'd played in mud before and after serving us!

STAY AWAY FROM ICE - MY FIANCÉ HAD SOME - NOT SURE IF FROM HERE OR A MEAL OUT ON THE FIRST NIGHT BUT SHE THREW UP RATHER VIOLENTLY DURING THE NIGHT!

On a PLUS! Note - drinks were VERY cheap, two cocktails which were AMAZING! Were the equivalent of about 1.50p each! A BARGAIN!

3. Walk into Town - To get to the main strip which you could literally through a stone to - is not brilliantly lit for about 100 yards but after that it's cool - watch out for the traffic - they really don't care for pedestrians - not many paths available - not great for high heels! And that stray dog loved us most nights enough to follow us home (for those that are worried about dogs!).

3. The Strip! - Rather Awesome - Forum Bar 5**** Is karaoke, but a right laugh!! - The owner is great, really friendly and looked after us when we watched a movie and orders drinks. The DJ - He's a DJ, Singer, Comedian, and Braincase for Music trivia and all round QUALITY GUY!! - Big HELLLO to him!!

One person that deserves a MASSIVE hi too is Crystal - You know who you are, even if you don't use the net - say hi to her, she's awesome, very friendly and a laugh!

We STRONGLY! recommend breakfast in Sizzlers - we had breakfast there almost everyday (We didn’t once only cos we had an early excursion and they were not open!) and Face bar is wicked for entertainment – the Hypnotist Rob – he’s funny and a DEFINITE must see! VERY Rude but quality!

4. Beach! - CRAP! Sewage pipes sticking out everywhere, cigarette buts all over and the sea is NOT blue! – I thought it was Felixstowe beach for a second… not Greece.

5. Aqualand! - Phenomenal – Must go – the donuts are so lush!

6. Wouldn’t go again! Would prefer to spend an extra #50 each and get something which doesn’t almost put my fiancé in tears on arrival!

Well what can I say apart from this... by J Carson
1 / 10

Well what can I say apart from this place is a DUMP! I have just returned from the Kavos Plaza and it is the worst holiday I have been on. The hotel is very basic and doesn't merit the 3 stars that Thomsons have said it is, more like a 1 star.

On arrival at the hotel we were told that the room we would be staying in was a new room, let’s just say I would hate to see the old ones! Our shower did not work and when we got it fixed (after 3 attempts of asking) it flooded the bathroom area and did not have hot water. Bed sheets and towels were only changed once during our 7 night stay (this is the first 3 star apartment I have came across that they don't change the sheets more often) although we were self catering we ate out every morning and evening because the cutlery and cooking facilities were filthy.

The hotel is situated right beside 2 rooster farms with about 20 roosters in each, so needless to say we did not get a good night sleep, although the Thomson’s brochure states that the hotel is situated in a quiet location.

Lucky enough we went at the end of season so the hotel, which worked out good as the hotel is for young and lively travellers (also something that we weren’t told when booking).

If you are thinking about going to this hotel I would strongly recommend that you go somewhere else unless you want a holiday from hell!

Excellent hotel by rob28781
10 / 10

I was looking for a cheap deal at the end of the summer to get away and Kavos didn't disappoint!

The Kavos Plaza was an amazing hotel to stay at. It was by far the most liveliest hotel in the whole of Kavos. It is in a great location, only a 5-10 minutes walk from the main bars and just far away enough so it isn't noisey. The bar was a great place to drink as there is always something going on. I only stayed for a week but we had different theme nights (greek night, bbq, kareoke).

Dina and Darren were great hosts and made you feel very welcome. The pool is very nice and you can get lots of sunshine from it. Rooms were basic, but that's all you need because we didn't spend too much time in them.

I'd reccommend this hotel to anyone looking for a fun holiday. The day time can be very quiet, but night time can be a bit noisey. They do close the doors to block out some of the sound from the bar at night.

Go the the trip to aqualand. Its a great day out...!

kavos oct 06 by MadameRicco
10 / 10

stayed at the kavos plaza for a girly hol in oct. went out to celebrate mine and my friends birthdays. what can i say, the place was totally shut down, only four bars out of a potentail 150 were stil open, but stil managed to have a fantastic time!!! was very dishearted at first but we soon lightened up and were forced to make the most out of it! would love to visit again BUT in the summer!! didnt realise we were booking out of season as we were told by our tour operator that the resort stays open until late november. Infact we were the last guests to leave the apartments and we didnt come across any one else all week that wasnt from our apartments as the others had indeed closed! had serious doubts about kavos but despite even the mositiqoes would stil reccommend the kavos plaza! everyone was so friendly and the pool atmoshere was great. everyone stuck together since we were the last ones there. apatments were decent and clean and the location was fab!! only a short distance away from the main strip but was far enough from the noise that im sure is expected in the summer, peak season.

definatly a place for young, fun seeking singles! had a great week despite all!!!

Good situation. Our room had a broken toilet seat and rotten wood in the bathroom. Room 209. Was woken each morning at 5am by a crowing cockerell! Loads of mosquitoes in room and pool area. Broken bottles round pool area. Ok if you just wanting somewhere to sleep.

Kavos Plaza - clean and friendly by tannie
8 / 10

Dina was very friendly and welcoming, Soc, Jenny & Darren were also great.

Apts were very clean and lovely clean pool. Made even the rainy days that we had great fun. Would recommend it for singles & couples... definately not for families or older people wanting somewhere quiet - quite loud music played from about 10am till about 4am most mornings!!

When we arrived at the Kavos Beach... by Paul
10 / 10

When we arrived at the Kavos Beach Club we thought it was fantastic! okay so the apartment was basic but anywhere is like that in Greece, but we had the most amazing view of the sea!

The brochure picture makes you think its one block in the middle of nowhere however the complex is 3 apartment blocks with a large swimming pool and 24 hour bar! Its about 5-10 minutes to the bars and restaurants which were all great! Stavros (Yannis!) and Maria made us feel very welcome, Stavros will get you to try his Firewater, its a nasty strong shot of alcohol, but it does the job!

Enjoyed many days sunbathing in the pool and drinking vodka slush puppies! The pizza's Maria cooks are very nice! Cleaner is good too, comes in every couple of days to clear up your room which you've left a mess of!

Everything’s cheap in Kavos, cocktails are around 2 for 5 euros and Head*****ers which I miss the most are around 5-6 euros for a cocktail full of 10 shots! Best bars and clubs would have to be Rockys, Rolling Stones, Limelight, Atlantis and Future. Will miss Kavos loads, hope to go back.

Love Shiv, Chris and Donna from Bristol! xXx
