“HOLIDAY - Sept 19th until 30th SELF CATERING”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2011

Rooms are located approx 700metres from the nightlifewere. Rooms very spacious and quiet at night time, local to all amenities - beach, restaurants and supermarkets. Recommend Avanti & Appolon restaurants and beach restaurant Horizon which also have free sunbeds all day. Local to airport but unable to hear aircraft during night time. Transfer taxi is approx 17 euro and about 15minutues away from Karras Hotel. Locals very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: room views are the best from 312 - 316

Stayed there last September and the appartments were small and basic. The pool area had loads of loungers as i think most people went explring during the day and the beach is just down the road. I was one of the best holidays because of the pool bar, we got to know everyone there and it really did make the holiday.
There are a few very nice restaurants around the corner and we hired quad bikes and travelled around the island a bit and went to other beaches that do water sports. The locals were very friendly too. I recommend this place but not for the rooms.

There was little we could fault about the Karras - it was clean, friendly staff and lovely pool & bar area. As a group of four 18 year olds on a first girly holiday away the hotel was perfect! It wasn't on top of the strip (about a 15min walk away) so was quiet at night, always staff available at whatever time and maid service everyday.

The room itself was basic, we didn't make much use of the minimal kitchen appliances offered apart from the fridge - which was very useful! We booked on a self-catering basis and went to the supermarkets everyday! There are about 3 supermarkets about a 5 min walk away from the hotel with reasonably priced products.

On arrival we had to pay a 25 euro safety deposit each which we was unaware of however upon leaving the hotel you get this back. The hotel is situated in a ideal position if you want to be able to access the strip on a regular basis however do not want to be on top of it! We went to the strip every night for dinner and clubs and had no trouble at all!

The other people at the hotel were groups of teenagers much like ourselves, everyone was friendly and it was a lovely atmosphere with the pool bar blasting out the latest english songs.

One issue we had in our room was we wasnt provided a bath mat therefore everytime we had a shower the floor flooded, however after speaking to reception about 30mins later we were given a mat. One main issue we had was our shower head, the appliance to hold the shower head had broken which made it difficult to shower, we reported to reception and never received any help, we just managed as best as we could, which was annoying!

The hotel is lovely and there is little to fault however the price. We overpaid compared to most people staying in Lagana. We paid around £550-600 for our accommodation, flights and coach transfer, in hindsight we would have definitely choose to stay elsewhere. As a first holiday it was very pleasurable, however the price was too much for what is actually on offer. We have heard positive recommendations about other hotels, so perhaps if we go back we look somewhere else.

We stayed here in June 2011 and had an amazing holiday! the Hotel is clean and the staff were very helpful, when we needed more towels or clean sheets we just asked and it was no problem! rooms were nice with a good balcony. Pool area is really nice plenty of sunbeds and the snack bar served nice homemade food. 5 minute walk from the beach and about a ten minute walk to the strip, but plenty of bars on the way to get your night started! The strip is great so many good bars and clubs to choose from and girls dont have to pay to get in which was a bonus! brilliant resort and great hotel would definetely go back!

Room Tip: Rooms within the courtyard are the best to meet people!

Travelled here in June 2009 with my boyfriend, both in our 20's. The hotel rooms are basic but what else would you be needing them for only sleeping in!! Towels were cleaned everyday, as was the bed clothes and the general cleaning of the room. The weather was fantastic, 30 degrees plus, heaven! The hotel pool was perfect and the sunloungers were always available. Food served at the poolbar was lovely!

I would recommend renting out a quad and travelling around the island, well worth the views and the experience! The strip is mental!! Clubs open until 8 in the morning..craziness!! Would be an ideal cheap place for a group of friends!

Highly recommend this hotel for couples and groups of friends, however i wouldn recommend the resort for families!

Any questions feel free to ask! :)
