Lovely place to rest from all hustle and bustle! We went here for the second time in 2017 after a wonderful stay in 2016. Owners Elena and mother Roulah take good care of the guests. Everyday fresh figs from the fruitgarden :-). Clean modern rooms with seaside view. Take a breakfast, lunch or diner in the nice restaurant were the owners cook themselves. Or take a 10 minute walk over the hill. Pigadia (Karpathos Town) with some nice restaurants too, is just around the corner! SOTS is especially so great because it's not massive but a nice small four star accommodation comprising of studios and apartments. Keep calm and just relax! Have a nice holiday!
Lovely staff. Room was refreshed daily and clean. Full size refrigerator in the room. Beautiful view of the ocean, and you can hear the waves as you drift off to sleep in your bed. Beautiful pool with great snacks available. Great bathroom! Spacious shower with rain shower head and hand held. 10 minute walk to town. Ample parking for your rental car.
600 meters outside Pigadia. Beautiful view from all rooms. Friendly staff, clean, nice looking rooms, good food for lunch when staying by the pool (salt water, so very clean). Steep hills surrounding the hotel invite you for a walk around the area for some great views over Pigadia. Highly recommended.
A very nice, peaceful place to stay. Professional and friendly owner and host. Clean and spacious room, with wonderful view. Good cooking! Basically all you need for a perfect holiday at Karpathos. 10 minutes walk down to town. So you don't need a car, but car recommended for a few days to explore the island, the beautiful beaches and small town up in the mountains or by the shore. Hope to go back some day!
Great location, as it is close to town, but very quiet. Nice sea view from the apartments. Staff was very nice and did everything to accomodate us (we were a very large group with lots of kids!) The resort has a nice pool and a tennis court, which comes in handy when you get back from the beach. Definitely recommended!
This is a terrific hotel in a spectacular location,a short walk to a secluded bay around harbour rock face. We had the cottage to ourselves, with full catering facilities. and a little terrace and fresh figs and pomegranates within reach. Helena is a welcoming and efficient host and her mother, Roula, presides over the kitchen, creating delicious breakfasts and meals. She is a wonderful, colourful character, full of warm embraces and laughter. The spacious sea-water pool, with spectacular views out to the ocean, is inviting and there are plenty of sun loungers. The clientele was almost exclusively Dutch and friendly. The walk back from the harbour, after eating in one of the many restaurants, is five minutes. After a short stay in Olympos it felt like returning home. Warmly recommended
Sound of the Sea was suggested to us by our local travel agency. Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised to see the well maintained buildings and were greeted by the lovely staff. The apartment was very nice and clean and they had prepared a baby bed for our 8 month old son. They have a swimming pool that is big enough to fit all the guests and even though we were in mid-summer we never had trouble getting a pool-side sunbed. There are some downsides though: - The swimming pool is saltwater, some of you may not mind but this is not ideal with an infant. - The air conditioning was available in our room but came at an additional charge of 8 euros per day. - The apartments have only one waste bin, located in the bathroom. When we asked about it we were told that was on purpose to keep unwanted insects out. People traveling with small children need more than just a 5L toilet waste bin. - The resort is located about 15 minutes from the town center but this road is not well maintained and it's a tough climb, especially if you're pushing a stroller. - The resort is even further from the nearest beach. This is about a 30 minute walk but the walk through the center is better maintained and filled with nice shops. The resort does have a road to the sea which is only a 5 minute walk down, but there is no beach and it doesn't have facilities like toilets or showers. It's more like a small harbor. The road down (and up) is also steep and not well maintained. I recommend wearing good shoes. The water is pretty clean/nice but the ground is slippery and there is nowhere to comfortably enjoy the sun. Now for some great tips: - If you like a nice sunbed on the beach with great facilities within walking distance, walk to the Alimounda Mare Hotel. This is a 5-star hotel with a nice beach and you can rent two sunbeds with a beach umbrella for the entire day for just 7 euros. There are showers, toilets, waiters, great (affordable) drinks and food and they even clear out a pathway into the sea (no watershoes needed). - The Sound of the Sea has a great little "snack bar". They don't serve a fancy dinner, but the breakfast is a delight and for a lunch they have very good toast and burgers. I also recommend their home-made lemonade. It's delicious. This place was packed with Dutch people, most of them come back every year. This could be a good or bad thing depending on the type of people you are and like. We are Dutch but try to stay away from them on holidays. I just want to thank the terrific staff for their excellent service and love. The family that run this place is very caring and hard working. I can understand why people come back every year. I hope my review helps you decide if this is the place for you. If you think my review is helpful please hit the "helpful" button.
An amazing spot in Karpathos with the best location, awesome views, great rooms, wonderful food, an INCREDIBLE pool and the most fantastic hosts you'll ever find. A winning combination for the best holiday ever, we'll definitely be back. Unbeatable!!! :) :) :) :) :)
We have been coming to this accommodation for around 8 years now and each year it is an absolute pleasure. Close enough to walk to the town, but far enough to be completely quiet and restful. The guests are largely Dutch and Scandinavian who have been coming here for numerous years and are respectful and courteous holiday companions. Contact between guests is informal and individualised. The Sound of the Seas is well organised and efficient. Elena, Ruda Michael and Scandar are always friendly and happy to help. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served on a terrace overlooking the sea and most days fresh produce from Elena's own garden is skilfully prepared into a delicious and traditional Greek dish. This is a haven not to be missed!
Beautiful view on sea, great family, nice apartments, quiet, peaceful and yet close to town. Its only a 650 meters walk to the harbor. There is a nice swimming pool with sunbeds. They have breakfast, lunch and dinner and it's all delicious!
