Our first visit to this hotel, and i can honestly say i couldn't fault it. Kos airport on arrival was, as reviews have stated, a little chaotic (as we have found many to be on our holiday compared with the Gatwicks etc that we are used to) but this didn't bother us. Thomson were waiting for us, and our trip to the hotel was quick and painless. upon arrival, we were greeted and offered something to eat (it was late and the restaurant was almost shutting) but staff made us welcome and offered us hot food. We were shown to our rooms, and even though we had asked for rooms to be situated as close together as possible (which they were) they offered to move a member of our party to a room even closer two days later, which they did with ease, and gave them a courtesy neck massage voucher for the trouble! Staff were so incredibly friendly and helpful. The twin pool view rooms which we had were huge, bathroom huge, and spotless. Tea and coffee making facilities, fridge filled with everything even chocolate ( though this isnt free, but no more expensive than the shop and filled every day) patio outside was huge, with two sunbeds and patio and table and two chairs the other. The pool is so extensive, that it never feels like a boiling pot about to spill, even when we went during the end of July and first weeks of august. Chefs are to be commended...fabulous food, changing all the time and in abundance. The bacco restaurant and pool bar offer you food at lunchtime that is equal to the main restaurant and enormous, i even skipped lunch some days as so much to eat. Drinks can be a bit pricey (aren't they always on holiday?) cards given on arrival for you to get your pool towels, and you can change them free of charge as often as you like. Indoor pool did not feel heated and quite cold, but didn't bother us as we wanted the main pool. Car hire easy to organize, and the island is great to browse. Zia town is so quaint, and many gift shops and travernas for you to refresh your pallet. The fresh ice tea was second to none! Kos is great to visit and the harbor beautiful. Marmari town has very little in it, and i mean very little, but Kos and others only 20 minutes away! The beach was clean and lovely, plenty of sunbeds. Always waiters around the pool offering you huge chunks of free water melon during the day. At night the upper lounge offer you nuts and chilli popcorn all evening, (keep replacing it all night) and the pool bar offer you fresh macaroons (cookies they call them) with cream, the nibbles at night come in abundance! Lenka and other pool staff were so kind and nice and helpful, as was our evening waiter and morning waiter. If you sit at the same table most days, you will always get to know the waiters who run it. When it comes to putting things right this hotel is hot off the mark. One of our parties noticed their air con wasn't getting too cold, so at breakfast he told reception. On the way back from breakfast, they passed us on the way to his room to re gas it. only 20 minutes had passed. In our room one of the wheels on the sunbed had a dodgy thread on the pin, we didn't have to say anything as the maid who washes down the patio area every day must have taken note, and suddenly we had a knock at the door with the maintenance men there to replace it, full of apologies and in 5 minutes it was done!! Definitely booking next year, the privacy on the terraces to the pools is simply marvelous. Weather fabulous, yes there are mosquitoes, but the hotel give you plugs for your room and you just have to keep the fly screens shut on your patio door and there's really no problem. Well done Palazzo, well designed hotel, but your staff and organisation and cleanliness, make it a fabulous holiday for all who visit.
