Caravia Beach Hotel Marmari, Kos
★ ★ ★ ★
No weather data found for [, ”Kos”, ”Marmari”, horizontal]
A relaxing property in a peaceful location with the benefit of being directly on a long sandy beach. Well presented in all areas apart from the dreary main building with no balconies although this is compensated by the lush expanse of gardens and attractive pool area.
Ideal for those who prefer to spend most of their holiday time in and around a chilled out hotel which does have activities to take part in if you choose to do so but with many quiet areas available to relax in. Popular with guests from around Europe more so than the UK.
5-storey, rectangular, bland and unattractive, built of grey concrete slabs and rather industrial looking. A secure gated entrance welcomes you to the property, fronted by thick vegetation.
No balconies but rooms have large windows with a small railing at the base. 80 bungalows spread throughout the grounds with balconies and terraces of a reasonable size, arched with glass frontages.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Some rooms
Built Year: 1979
The marble reception and lobby is spacious and rather sparse with furnishings. Attempting to be modern and minimalistic, the only seating is a few orange cushioned blocks and 2 sets of clear plastic tables and chairs, looking over the gardens from floor to ceiling windows.
Main bar is fashionable with dark leather furnishings and comfy brown and grey sofas although again somewhat lacking in character as walls are bare.
The restaurant is bright and airy with floor to ceiling windows and white wedding style tables and chairs that leads out to a delightful vine covered terrace with older style wicker furniture.
Grounds are immaculately presented throughout with large expanse of lawns, rich with flowering bushes and mature trees that lead down to the attractive white sandy beach with water sports and a large wooden beach bar.
The welcoming pool area has a mixture of different shaped adult and children’s pools with water features, bridges, flowering islands and Jacuzzis, both with metal stepped and walk in entry for ease of access.
Wicker sunbeds and white parasols surround the tiled area and there is a charming sunken snack bar and separate pool bar. The children’s club house and spacious grass based playground has a mixture of apparatus.
Area Type: Caravia Beach Hotel is in a rural location directly on the white sandy beach surrounded by open land. A supermarket and a taverna is 350m away with a further small choice of bars and restaurant 1km away in the resort centre.
