Kos by night.
Harley’s Bar is one that is located in Kardamena. It has a wide variety of specialty drinks, and the music selection is a favourite among younger tourists. In the evening and early night time, the place has a bar atmosphere, often showing sporting events on large televisions. Late nights, however, see this place turn into an exciting dance club.
As far as self-catering apartments go, Marianna Studios is an excellent choice. The kitchen is equipped for basic cooking with a small stove and refrigerator. The reception area has a small but surprisingly well-stocked library which mainly consists of books people have left behind; therefore, you can be assured that there will be a perfect beach read somewhere in there!
The hotel’s bar just in front of the entrance makes a wonderful first impression, since it has been recently updated. Rooms at the back of the hotel get lots of sun and they are closer to the pool. If these issues are important, confirm upon booking. If not, know that all of the rooms are clean, well-furnished and quiet.
Tourists love the location whether they plan on walking the ten minutes to the beach or taking the bus there or to the city for some shopping or exploring.
Olga's Paradise Apartments is another clean, basic accommodation for those who don’t plan on spending all day cooped up in a hotel room while on vacation. It is located very close to the city, but the beautiful pool will still remind guests that they are visiting a beach resort, after all.
