To be honest, having visited Kos Island in the near past, I had great concerns about choosing the island once again, since I was left with a disappointing feeling back then. Never visited Kardamaina though... So last week I decided to follow my instinct, give it another try and... yes, " ASTERAS RESORT" didn't prove it wrong..
I was warmly welcomed by Agnes and Maria in reception, and lead directly in a beautiful, sunny and immaculately clean room, without having to wait a second. Ideally located close to the bars, clubs and restaurants (only a short walk along the beach until you reach the town), with the beach being only 150 away from the hotel, I didn’t have to worry about anything, as everything one needs was handy. The food is quite greek traditional oriented, with a great variety of salads and of course desserts (that was the best part if you ask me, as I am a chocolate lover!!). But the most important thing in “Asteras” is its staff….Everyone was smiling, obviously enjoying their job and making you feel at home, while providing the service that a very good 4 * hotel should offer! Nothing was too much a trouble for them. I will never forget these smiley faces of Iro, Alexandros and Nicodimos welcoming me during breakfast/ lunch and dinner time, and Ilias in the Pool and Lobby Bar ( he has his own way to cheer you up, no matter what). There is no doubt that the Manager is making a great job, being visible to his guests ,always interested in taking the feedback out of us…he has managed to combine professionalism with the “feeling at home”, sharing positive energy within his staff and us, and that is the most relaxing thing I could expect!
“ASTERAS” for me is a living proof that beautiful and relaxing holidays have nothing to do with stars.. The building itself and the facilities mean nothing, unless they are provided to you with love and care, it’s the staff that makes the difference!! I left with a big smile, it made me love Kos finally.. I definitely recommend this hotel!!
