transfer to hotel not as long as Thomson indicated but could have done with some air conditioning! On arrival at hotel receptionist very nice, cases were taken to our room, which was not very big but clean, 1 double bed and 2 single , TV with no english speaking channels except news channels though we did get one programme on the night we arrived and one film during the week but it was so boring we turned it off! now I know you don't go to watch TV but it would be nice to watch something at night before you go to sleep! Hair dryer in room a bit awkward to use so if you have space I would bring your own, room cleaned every day. After our arrival went downstairs to ask if we could get food to be told no the restuarant was closed (this was 10pm) and no room service at hotel maybe they could rethink this as after restuarant closed if you get peckish then you have to go out of the hotel for food. Hotel food was ok I'm very picky but what I did have was always hot and staff always replenishing. Pools are very good and always sunbeds available what i did like was one umbrella to 2 beds, pool bar didnt open until 11am. Hotel about 30/40 minutes walk from Kos old town beware of cyclists! bus costs 2.20 euros return but can get very busy oh and on return ring bell for your stop or he just drives on! you can get tickets from reception. Where hotel is situated is very quiet so if you want nightlift then don't go to this hotel. Someone commented not for kiddies but there were lots here and they all seemed to enjoy themselves. Internet not that great so wouldn't recommend paying just get it free in reception. We had late check out which was 6pm as opposed to normal check out at noon and our room was made up for us and clean towels put out which was very nice considering room had to be recleaned for next guests.
