My first time in Kos, though the rest of my family had visited many times. I found the Vila Popi excellent, basic, but that's what we paid for! Popi, Sebastian and Tina could not have been more helpful.
The apartment was large enough, was cleaned regularly and the beds were changed several times a week. The pools were spotless with plenty of sunbeds. I would certainly visit Vila Popi again. Thank you Popi, for a great holiday!

Popi Apartments:
The Greek family-run studio and single bedroom blocks which are situated on a side road near the port in a quiet part of Kefalos surrounded by gardens and trees and has a tranquil atmosphere.

Villa Popi has about 14 apartments which are a mixture of twin or double bedded studios and some with single bedrooms in two blocks and each block has two floors which at first seems basic, but are more than worthy of the 2 Key rating it is afforded; they consist of a kitchenette with two cooking rings and fridge, bathroom with shower and wc, and private balcony or terrace.

After reading some of the bad reviews for Villa Popi we were apprehensive about our holiday thankfully we can say they were unfounded (professional complainers).

The first floor studios afford views across the bay of Kefalos of which we can substantiate the claim; ground floor studios look out onto the jungle like garden or pool of which you can watch the sun rise and set, we enjoyed pleasant afternoons seated with a cool drink soaking up the sun.

The apartments were kept very clean even when we left clothing all over the place, the crockery and cutlery was in place, basic but clean, our party had two apartments one studio on the first flour and one single bedroom apartment on the ground level, the apartments were cleaned three or four times a week, towels and bed linens changed twice a week.
The beds in our apartment was one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in.

There seemed to be amble supply of the solar heated hot water for showers and washing.

The air conditioning cost 35 euros per week and the room safe deposit box cost 5 euros per week.

The owners live in a small building located in between the two apartment blocks. It was a convenient five-minute walk from the resort centre to the sand & shingle beach a large supermarket and eating places.

The resort has two lovely swimming pools, sun beds and parasols and a pool bar which serves inexpensive food, ice creams and drinks all day, use of the pool is free.

They showed their pride in their vocation by making the complex so clean and tidy and going out of their way in being helpful.

We are not sun worshippers so we did not stay around the apartments during the day as a lot of people did. Popi obviously took offence to this as she arrived at our door a few days into our holiday and started shouting at my boyfriend accusing us of using another apartment complex facilities, which we certainly were not.

Apart from this the pool bar plays thumping dance music from 9am till it closes, thankfully this is early evening. We won't be back.

Well, this is a lovely place to stay. Small and very clean. A fantastic pool in the sun all day. I have actually stayed here twice now and both times no complaints about accommodation or resort.

The staff are OK if they like you, no offence, im not complaining they are just not overly friendly but the nice accommodation makes up for it.

Only five mins walk from anywhere really, towards the harbour end of Kefalos.

Pool bar serves drinks, theres someone around most of the day but it is not open in the evenings except on departure day/night.

I only have one thing to say really, make sure you are prepared for the night flight home, Popi will let you leave your luggage in a safe place as check out is hours before the coach picks you up, our pick up was 2am and we vacated by 12pm. You could pay extra to stay in room till 5pm if you require but the staff will be waiting outside on the dot. Anyway you have to hang around for hours, we played cards but it got really chilly and only really sunbeds around the pool were empty to sit on, not the best with young'uns.

If the late flights dont bother and your not bothered about getting friendly with the owners, and you just want to be left alone for a nice holiday, then the accommodation at Popi's is lovely.
