We stayed at The Hotel Platanista in August 2010 and had a fantastic holiday. The hotel looks like a castle from the outside. You enter the hotel via a grand entrance, leading into the reception area, which is all marble. Very impressive! The hotel has two fantastic pools. One being larger than the other and we found the smaller one was for the more reserved people, who preferred a quieter swimming pool. The smaller pool has a pool bar and a jaccuzzi. There are plenty of sunbeds around both pools. They have activities going on during the day, like water polo, water aerobics, crazy golf, beach volleyball, darts, pool etc, for you to join in if you wish.The restaurant was very impressive, but gets very busy. If you want to sit outside for your meals (especially evening) you need to get there early. The food was excellant and varied. There is entertainment in the evening. There are a couple of bars and a separate eating place during the day for snacks. They have a small shop which sells everything you need. The room was very spacious with a large marble bathroom and a large balcony. The gardens were lovely and kept emaculate. They have their own beach just down the road, but it is very rocky and deep. Not ideal. We found a lovely beach in Tigaki, which was beautiful. You can either get the bus or a taxi. Kos town is about 35 minutes walk or you can get the bus, which took about 5 minutes. The only downfall with the hotel, is that there is not much to do around there. Apart from that, it was fantastic!!! Can't wait to go back!!
