At the end of May, I jetted off to Kos, Greece for a much needed holiday of sun, swimming and plenty of food! My friend and I booked a week at Carda Beach, a highly recommended all inclusive resort just outside Kardamena town.
We’d been to the resort before, back in 2013, but as a group of 11. So it was a very different holiday. The staff were all really friendly and spoke decent English too. We got up for breakfast everyday but one, it was a buffet style and there was a great range. Lunch and dinner were buffet style too, with different things every day ranging from traditional Greek to your standard fish and chips! There were 2 a la carte restaurants within the hotel, an Italian and a Chinese. We went to the Italian when we visited in 2013 so we booked to eat at the Chinese this time and it was wonderful. The food was lovely and the restaurant itself was really nice, with very attentive staff.
We were a stones throw from the beach, but with neither of us having much interest in going for a swim in the sea we spent the whole week sunbathing, reading and enjoying plenty of afternoon naps. Our evenings were spent in the all inclusive bar which again was lush, it had plenty of comfortable seating, inside and out – we ventured into town 2 nights during the week but being the beginning of the season it was still relatively quiet.
It was exactly what we both needed, stress-free and relaxing. I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a luxury resort paired with great weather and beautiful views.
