“Fantastic, Judge for yourself, and ignore the silly comments”
Reviewed 31 July 2009

We have just returned from the Kipriotis Village, we were in a group of 7 people. 4 Adults and 3 Children. All I can say is I don't understand the negative comments I have seen on trip advisor about this Hotel. Firstly it is not 99% German, and if you take the trouble to speak to people you will find there were Dutch, German, French, Italian, Austrian and most of them speak perfect English as a second language, and are very friendly. My Husband and his friend Steve played football at 4:30 everyday and made some great friends from Holland Germany and Italy who I might add are keeping in touch, they would also meet at the Bar afterwards for a nice cool beer and a chat. On arrival you are taken to your room by either Golf Buggy or Mini Bus depending on the size of your party, the rooms are set in gardens that are pretty and maintained everyday we saw the gardeners most days. About the Hotel, the staff are so very friendly and helpful and I mean all the staff, it was incredibly clean in the public areas, as well as the rooms, ours was cleaned every day!!!! Including Saturday and Sunday. Yes the decor is not the Ritz, but if you want that kind of decor GO TO THE RITZ, our room was comfortable, clean had a large balcony, and for all the Ladies who wash things through every day, you get 2 washing lines, it may not seem like a big thing, but when you have nowhere to hang anything and then have to go looking for a washing line..... It is. The safety deposit box is FREE, we have always had to pay a charge for the 2 weeks we are on Holiday. We had air conditioning, which is a bit noisy but did not stop us from sleeping, there is also a sliding door in addition to the patio doors that has a mosquito net, and none of us were bitten during the stay. The hairdryer is like one from your local swimming pool but does the job. One warning about the rooms with the deck, be careful on the steps they are steep. The food was excellent, there are 3 restaurants the main, the Greek and the Italian, if you want to eat in the Greek or Italian at night put your name down on the list the day before, its on a table at the entrance of the main restaurant. We loved the Greek restaurant and the men did wear shorts but they were dress shorts not beach, and we were not refused entry. The Olympic pool is huge, with plenty of beds but as with any Holiday you do have to go down early to get one, we reserved 7 everyday and although they put a polite notice in the room not to reserve the beds, no one removed the towels. Food is served from 12pm till 3 pm and there is a self-serve machine for soft drinks coffee and beer. Up by the pool with the pirate ship there is also the same self serve food and drinks as well as the restaurant. There is a great breeze most days so top up with the Sun cream. The beach area is pebble so a bit hard on the feet; crocs or swim slippers will help. There is a beach bar for a nice cool drink, and the beach is a short walk from the Olympic pool. We spent a day at the water park it is not huge but was great fun, worked out about £23 Euros per person the food inside is expensive and you are not supposed to take your own, but we asked for a lunch pack from the Hotel and sneaked it in under our towels and no one was the wiser. Last but not least, our Son got a bad Ear infection and we took him to the Doctor at the Hotel and he was Private the consultation was 70 Euros and another 20 euros to have his ear syringed 3 days later and we had to pay 27 euros for the medication (this included 7 euros for the delivery) the best thing to do is take swim plugs with you, most good sports shops sell them. So judge for yourself and hope you have as good a Holiday as we did, we will definitely go to the Kip Village again.

Me my husband and my 6 year old son have just returned from a weeks holiday at Kipriotis Village. I must admit I had read some of the reviews before we went and I was worried to what we would find. However it wasnt as bad as I thought, the Hotel itself and the complex is brilliant and very very clean.
The main let down for me and my family was that the entertainment at the night was rubbish the staff did a show themselves most nites and you could see that they had given it the best shot but it was terrible.
I just think given the size of the complex they could do a lot more to cater for entertainment it was as though they were trying to save money by just getting all the staff involved.
My son found it difficult to mix with any other kids due to the majority being German and we did try the kids club but the staff who ran it didnt really seem intrested in the English children.
The food was fine the only let down was that it was always cold. As the other comments say the biggest problem is getting a bed round the pool and the fact that it seems that the German guest felt that they ran the place.
We did have a great holiday as we could get around and Kos town is only 10 mins away. I wouldnt stay here again or recommend just on the lack of entertainment.

Me and 'er indoors enjoyed a terrific week here mid-July 2009. Don't know where some of these reviewers come from with their negative comments.
During our stay the hotel had 2200 guests; maximum is 2700. Pool areas were busy and sunbeds scarce (surprise, surprise - it's just like the rest of Europe) but the facilities are great. Best pool I have seen in a long time is the Olympic one closely followed by the pirate pool for the kids. Both busy but still plenty of room with plenty of sunbathing space.

Whole complex is kept very neat, tidy and clean. Gardeners, cleaners and maintenance staff do a good job.
Our room (463 2) was fine for 2 people; clean with good aircon and good bathroom. Beds were a bit hard but who cares? How long do you want to spend in your bed or room on holiday?
General public rooms are big, airy and comfortable. Whole place is spotless.
Food was very good, plenty of it and good variety and quality. Main dining room is a bit soulless but does what it is intended to do. Some parents and kids were lippy but staff coped with them - blame the parents. Best dining experiences are in the Italian and the Greek restaurants; our favourite was the Greek for brekkie, lunch and dinner. Be aware of "the list" you have to sign in to get in these restaurants as they are smaller than the main one. Get "the list" sorted soon as you get there. Have a quiet respectful word with the restaurant Captains to get a table the night after arriving. We complained gently but firmly to Vasilis about the wait to get on "the list" and he sorted it immediately and was then our new best friend for the rest of the week, great bloke. Amazing what you get service wise if you don't shout , holler and get nasty. ALL the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient - just smile and say good morning/evening and thank you ... works wonders. The reviewers who got unfriendly service should look at their own behaviour. Lunch was available at 4 sites - Olympic pool, main restaurant, Greek and BBQ restaurants. Hardly ever queued.
Not many Brits in our week (recession biting?) or on the Island. Lots of Russians mainly ,but no trouble, with Germans and Dutch. Not a lager-lout in sight, fantastic! If you don't like Germans then stay at home in Blackpool or Skeggie, not many visit there - too much sense.
Weather was hot, low 90s all week. Beach is worst part as it's narrow, steep and made of shingles and pebbles. Take water shoes. Wind was very strong for a few days and made swimming very difficult. If you are looking for a great sandy beach then it ain't here but there are plenty of them on the Island if you are mobile.
All in all a good hotel and one of the best in that area. If you talk to guests in other hotels nearby then you will thankful you are staying in the Kipriotis. We would return but perhaps in June or September when it's a bit quieter and cooler.

It s just wonderfull hotel, we were satisfied with all, specially with kind staff, excelente food in three restaurants, good animations team for children and adults. I recomended this hotel to families with children and teenagers, less for old people.
We found more than we expected, we payed in Kreta ( hotel 4 stars all inclusive) much more for less.
Only ngative thing was that biliard was out of working for all two weeks and there is only one table for table tenis, but that s all we can complain about.

Thank you very much for unforgetable holidays!!!

Just back from 2 weeks all inclusive at Sol Kipriotis Village, Psalidi. Worried about the bad reviews on the internet but found everything extremely good. (our rep did say that there had been complaints last year but they seem to have sorted them out now). Everything was being constantly cleaned, the rooms were spotless, also the pool areas and dining rooms. The staff were very friendly contrary to reports - perhaps it depends on how you approach them? All the restaurant staff were brilliant and very helpful, there were 10 of us, 2 grandparents, two daughters and one son in law and 5 grandchildren ranging in age from 3 to 13 - our waitress often pulled a couple of tables together so we could all sit together if all the bigger tables were taken. The choice of food was extremely good, different meats, vegetables, pasta, marvellous salads, fish, soup, and very good cakes and fruit. The girls at the pool bar were brilliant, Geri (?) making Kacey our granddaughter a special fruit punch each day. Marijane (?) never kept us waiting for drinks. There were lots of germans in the hotel which was sometimes a problem, with their tryng to push in front of us in the food queues and often being very bolshy in the pool but it didn't spoil our holiday. Beach at the hotel shingly and not very scenic. You could have a free scuba diving lesson, our grandsons had this, and the 13 year old went on to have a full lesson in the pool, also 2 lessons in the sea which he thoroughly enjoyed, the instructors were brilliant. Only a couple of complaints, the main dining room was swelteringly hot, they didn't put the air conditioning on until our last day - and then we think it was because there was a conference of german and greek urologists staying there and it was really for them. Near the end of our first week the management for some reason decided guests could only get 2 drinks at a time and "for their own personal consumption". As there were 10 of us and up to then we had been getting our drinks on a tray, this was difficult because it would have either meant all adults leaving the children alone while we fetched our and their drinks, or having to make repeated journeys to the bar and queueing again. If they had said only 2 alcoholic drinks at a time that wouldn't have been a probem but again it wasn't the fault of the bar staff, they were doing what they had been told. We had also been told our 3 units would be near each other (so we could babysit) but it turned out that only two were together, so we (grandparents) took the separate one about 5 mins away. Even though we all paid for the same accommodation ours was much larger and nicer - we were in room 710 - the others were 500 ish and smaller and more basic. All in all a brilliant holiday, we all said we wouldn't hesitate to go back.

We spent just a week at the Kipriotis village and it was excellent value for money. We have previously holidayed in Kos (in Kefalos) on a self-catering basis, but decided that, due to the exchange rate, we'd go all-inclusive this year. We arrived at about 3pm on our first day and were impressed with the luxury of the reception and lobby areas immediately. When we were taken to our room, we were even more delighted - we are used to "roughing it" in 2 or 3 star self-catering! The room and bathroom was clean, well-appointed (opposite the Greek Restaurant and near the edge of the complex) and we had everything there we could possibly use - except the complimentary bottle of water - but it was only 90 cents in the supermarket opposite, so no big deal.

We found the staff extremely helpful and if you try to be friendly these guys are superb - I struck up quite a conversation each morning with the breakfast chef coooking the pancakes (my parter was rather partial to these!) and he was a great guy. I think many of the guests didn't even bother to speak to the staff and then wondered why they weren't friendly!

I read all the reviews I could find on this hotel before we went and a colleague gave me lots of information too, having visited Kipriotis Village about a month before we went. All the negative reviews on food must have come from those people who'll never try anything new and expect to eat exactly as they do at home. We never had a problem finding something to eat as there was always masses of choice and lots of fresh salads, bread, chips (of course!), cheese, cakes, biscuits, yoghurts, fresh fruit. We particularly enjoyed the coffee and cakes between 5 and 6pm on the terrace of the Olympus bar!!

Our room was cleaned every day and the towels/bedding were changed as necessary, so no complaints there either. The gardens are beautiful with lots of palms, bourganvillea growing up the buildings and everything is extremely well-tended.

We did go the beach on our last full day because there had been a massive influx of new arrivals and we were unable to get a sunbed in the pool area - I'm afraid that when in Psalidi, you have to do as others, and bag them early to be sure of a bed for the day!! In the hotel literature it tells you NOT to put towels on the sunbeds, but everyone does. There is a towel exchange in the pool bar area which we didn't use, but we wouldn't have taken any beach towels had we known of this. Beware the Kos "breeze" - it was pretty hot while we were there, but because of the constant breeze (?!?), I got quite burnt. The beach is not so good....you have to pay 3 Euros for a sunbed and it is mega-windy, but you have a clear view of Bodrum from here.

Don't hire a car from the booth in the hotel - cheapest car is 35 Euros here - we got a Jeep from Tigaki Car Hire (opposite the hotel) for just 30 Euros for the day - it was brilliant fun and we toured most of the Island and even went up to Zia to see the fabulous sunset and got the car back by 9pm!

There are activities - my partner tried archery, I prefered to stay by the pool! There is no pressure to join in any of the activities but we grew quite fond of the "club dance" performed by the Animation Team each day at 3pm! I don't believe that teenage children are catered for - all the activities seem to be aimed at children under 10!

All in all, we had a lovely, relaxing, chilled-out time and would recommend this hotel; if we were to go again, we would go late May/early June to avoid the crowds and the very hot temperatures.

I normally see the good points with everything but not in this instance. The hotel looks great and the cleaners were very good, shame the rest of the hotel staff were very ignorant (except for Petia sorry if I spelt your name wrong but she worked at the Palmy Pool Bar and was excellent). Kids Club was a waste of time and definately not a club where I would be happy to leave my child with them as the staff to child ratio is not very good. German children played, sang and danced outside in their enclosed large area whilst the International children sat inside colouring/painting or playing board games in their one small house (which is not enclosed), except for one ten minute singing class outside. There was a club for the German children and one for International, never integrated!!! Not one of the Kids Club entertainment programmes were listed in English and had to ask twice a day to see what was happening. The food was the same every day but edible although there was alot of Germans always willing to push you out of the way or just jump the queue (believe me it was a long queue too!). As for the sunbeds well you need to be saving your sunbed before 8.30a.m. even though the hotel info informs you that it is not acceptable (if only they carried out their threats); if you don't save one forget sitting anywhere near the pool and in July they have an extra one thousand people so beware!!! Taxi from the airport was only 32 euros each way and that is a set rate so works out better as you can be in your hotel within twenty minutes. Taxi to Kos town/Marina is a set rate of 8 euros or 1,30 euros per adult on the bus which takes about ten minutes and stops right outside of the hotel straight into the town. This has the makings of a great hotel but alot needs to change with the management structure, staff friendliness, restaurant queue system and Kids Club organisation as there is not enough integration. Thomas Cook Rep 'Chris' is useless so don't bother with him and the trips are much cheaper outside of the hotel or in town (most times by at least 20 euros); the bicycles are approx 3 euros/bike/day and the bicycle track is very good all the way to Kos. The hotel layout is quite good and the pools very nice just a shame about everything else. Pool towels are 5 euros each with a 10 euro refundable deposit. The onsite doctor is only there from 5-6p.m. although be warned a charge of 75 euros just to tell you to visit the pharmacy! The scuba diving lesson is in the pool and then a short walk to the beach to test out your diving skills and not alot to see; you are much better paying 20 euros more in Kos Marina where you can go on an all day trip for 50 euros. Lots of ants in the rooms although the cleaners will come around with ant spray on request. Thomas Cook are taking a huge risk recommending this hotel.

Kipriotis, Management Sol Kipriotis Village at Kipriotis Village Resort, responded to this review, 27 June 2009
Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your comment on your holidays in our hotel.

We were carefully reading through your review and it seems that the main point you are complaining about was the number of Germans in our hotel. We would like to inform you that for us as an international hotel every guest from every country has the same importance. We are operating internationally, meaning that we accommodate guests from all over Europe in our resort. Going on holidays abroad is a chance to get in touch with another culture in the destination and also to meet people from other countries. Of course everybody has the choice to book a hotel that is only for people from its own country and not to go into an international one which the Sol Kipriotis Village definitely is.

Regarding the Kids Club we would like to mention that we offer in total 4 different Kids Clubs in different houses in our children’s paradise ‘Palmy’. The staff members in our mini clubs speak every language in order to guarantee a great holiday experience for our little guests, no matter from which country they are coming. Our daily program is announced on 3 boards – we are very sorry that you did not see those announcements, but for further information you could also ask the entertainment team members or our reception staff. We offer to our kids a lot of activities such as:
- POOL GAMES: e.g. a race with mattresses or water boccia
- FIELD GAMES/ OUTSIDE GAMES: e.g. Cat and Mouse or touch the runner
- GAMES INSIDE THE MINI CLUBS: e.g. Pantomime or Animal family
- CREATIVE, ARTS & CRAFTS: e.g. T-Shirt Painting or Origami
- MUSICAL GAMES: e.g. Musical Bumps
- BEACH GAMES: e.g. throw the ring on the bottle, Fill up a cup with a sponge

As children have their own language and does not need to be separated by countries or languages the program is as international as the hotel is and we integrate all the children in our games and the fun of the mini clubs.

With the main restaurant and two other theme restaurants that are open every night for dinner we believe that we offer enough variety for every taste. Naturally some side dishes can seem the same but e.g. French fries are a must to offer every day especially for the children. As for the queue this can happen only upon opening of our restaurant but we do not have more than 5 min waiting time.

Last regarding the sun beds we would like to mention that there are enough sun beds for all the guests but naturally everybody wants to reserve the first position around the pool. The information we give to the guests upon arrival is a request for not reserving sun beds and therefore can not be strictly observed by the hotel.

Sincerely regards,

The management
