Excellent hotel

"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...!"

"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!!!"

"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!!"

"myself(becky,18) and 3 freinds(dei,17 becca 17 and emma 18) stayed at the kavos plaza in june, what can i was totally amazing! i must admit that when we arrived at the airport i was a little nervous as to where we were going to spend the next week but once we arrived was more than chuffed! was a little shocked when we had to fork out 35 euros each to pay for the air con and safety deposit box but im glad we did. we ditched our stuff and headed straight to the bar where we got our welcome drinks(nothing like a quick cocktail to get ure night started,lol). after that we headed into town to suss out the night life, we got as far as this bar called"pleasure" where we went every night. the bar staff there are ace, specially stellios, not forgetting the D.J ash and the P.R andy. if you go, def check it out! back in our hotel we made loads of friends, most of which were lads... but also dina, the lady who ownes the hotel and the baff staff V and angela. our room was top class, it was right on the top floor but it was worth the climb! we booked most of the trips that the our rep tommy had going. the best one by far was def theo's boat trip, if your not up for a laugh then dnt bother, if youve got a sense of humor and dnt mind getting spayed wiv shaving foam then it is def the trip for you, was the best day of the week!!! also, if you get chance then check out "trinity" a bit pricey but worth it. if ytou get a bit board one day, hire a quad, there brill, but dnt forget to take ure passport and driving licence wiv ya! overall it isnt a cheap week, but if you dnt mind spending you'll have an awesome time!!!"

Kavos Paza Studios Fantastic!

"Myself and the lads stayed at the Kavos Plaza Studio Apartments between 20 Jun 06 to 27 Jun 06. We are all in our thirties and have stayed in many resorts around the world between us. We have never received such a good welcome as we got at the Plaza Studios. The owner Dina welcomes you herself every time and says shes going to be your mother for a week. After we'd dumped our stuff, she bought us all cocktails at the pool bar. As stated by previous reviews the bar staff are fantastic. There is an English lady called Jenny, who is extremely fun and friendly. Vangelles, who is the local lady charmer. Plus of course the body of an angel that is Angela. Something for everyone! Wide selection of drinks and food served. The bar stays open till 5am. Food served all day by the pool side, with funky club tunes gently pulsating in the background. The location is perfect. A 3 minute walk from the beach and all the nightlife. Just far away enough if you do want a quiet night. Be aware that all the bars have to shut off their music after 0100am. Due to new laws. The bars do stay open though till about 0500am. If you want more music there is a choice of about 6 clubs to go to. The freestyle reps are fantastic. Especially wee Tommy, who makes every effort to make your holiday great. (Check out his girlfriend Natalie too!). There are loads of excursions arranged. I can recommend the 2 bar crawls, and the Trinity night. Dina lays on 2 special nights at the Plaza Studios. Greek night and BBQ night. Both are well worth it as the food is fantastic and the beer is flowing. Nearly everyone at the apartments attended both nights then hit the clubs afterwards. It's definately an accomodation for party go'ers. There a few young couples that still had a great time with us, but all in all I would say it's more of a singles place. As I said before, "Something For Everyone"!!!"

"I was in this place for two weeks and it is easily the best place i have ever been, gutted we were hidden down in the gutter rooms on the left of the place at the bottom but other than that the rooms are good enough to live in for 2 weeks without any complaints. The Pool Bar staff are great especially Angela and 'V', we were reciting greek quotes to them on our last night it was great, especially when my mate started asking the barman 'V' to kiss him and teling him he had beautiful eyes that was hilarious. Another great place for the fellas to try out is Checkers ask around when you get there defo worth a look. Back to the Plaza though the girls that were staying there were among the highest quality you can find on this planet and 'V' the barman reckons that there is no woman he can't charm the pants off of, so ladies please prove him wrong and don't forget i will be there next year around the end of June so go then and i will be able to laff as he get shot down in flames."

The perfect experience

"As a member of a group of teenagers vacating for the club aspect of Kavos, we booked this hotel purely because of its location regarding closeness to the Strip, however upon arrival we realized that this hotel was beyond brilliant. We were greeted by the hotel owner (Dena if I remember correctly) who was extremely friendly as she made it known to us that all sun-care products were available for no charge (only the start of great hotel savings) which was very helpful, continuing with the staff, they were so approachable and friendly and service at the bar was very quick (especially the food), the cleaners did a very good job and even did any stray bits of washing up.
Moving to the rooms, all of them have balconies and a fairly large kitchen area (a strong word of advice, if you get a room which, when you go up the main stairs and head straight forward, where you walk up a smaller set of stairs and is the first room on your left [especially the 1st floor {where I stayed}] ask for a new one, the reason I say this is because half of your balcony is a tree, where at 7:30 each day an army of birds fly inside it and make a continuous racket for about 1 hour), this kitchen area varies from room to room but is largely the same size, the shower is decent and the beds are very comfy (get air-con as well).
The food and drink are great value, the only down point is a can of coke is 2euros, however a pack of 6 large bottles of water costs 1:50euros which is great value whereas the food is incredibly well priced, 5euros for a pizza and 2:50euros for a ham & cheese sandwich . The in-house restaurant make great food from pasta to T-bone steaks to local cuisine and the food is delicious.
The pool is a decent size with a kiddie/heated pool on the side, there are a number of Lilo's and floats available for free and there is a basic pool table and table tennis table an there are plenty of sunbeds and shade spots.
Location is key for a group holiday and KP is about a 2 min. walk from a shop and mini-infirmary, 5 minutes away from a cash machine and start of the strip, as for the beach it is a 7 minute walk but I would personally avoid it as it is not the best.
All in all the Kavos Plaza is a great place for all groups, the in-house entertainer (who is a fairly good DJ [DJ Harvey for us] and a great laugh/entertainer) stops his set at about 1am so it doesn't go on all night like other reviews say. I fully recommend this Hotel and I intend to come back for another great time."

"Just back from Kavos n it weren't the best place to go at the end of Sept,
"Beach Club" thats a joke. so called beach is 3 metres wide n totally covered in seaweed. The sea is lovely n clear & very safe, you have to wade out about 30 yards before the water is deep enough to swim
Hotel was basic & had no roof on. pool area good n clean but pool bar not open much at all & covered in graffitti.
Stavros & Maria + kids very nice & friendly who run the place.
Kavos itself, some nice bars & hotspots & loads of resturants - well there was the 1st week, shops bars & clubs started shutting down.
The Forum great bar for good food watching football layed back music, great for a quiet night.
The Fountain bar also nice quiet bar.
Crash Bar amazing little place. good drinks cracking up to date tunes full of life.
Margarittas Bar great friendly staff. great drink & tunes
Food
too much English food grrrrr
did find a couple of greek resturants tho - Olympica is a proper greek resturant. amazing food greek music & very friendly staff. good range of 3 courses for 8.50 euro
Flies wasps and huge hornets are a major pest but the Mozzie are really bad at this time of year.
