October 2013 - Second time to Kos this year after staying at the Continental Beach in July 2013 with my son and now the Mitsis Ramira Beach Hotel with my wife.
We arrive at the airport and picked up our Audi A3 - One main road through Kos, easy drive and after 30 minutes reached our hotel ahead of the Coach.
And on reflection to having a car or not from this holiday to the last a car is a must for me.
Reception no issues, luggage taken to room, room very clean but smelt of poor drainage.
Rooms were cleaned every day with towel changes every day.
In comparison to the Continental Beach Hotel this hotel is better value, however location wise is really too far to walk into town an extra 2 kilometres out, however 9 Euro's into town by taxi.
Disappointment - My real disappointment with the hotel was the pool side. if you look at the photo's of the hotel they seem great, but they have fixed, institute umbrella's which cannot be removed or varied and seemed to be very little space to move around them to catch the sun.
Disappointment - The room walls I felt were quite thin and during the night you could hear others moving the chairs in their rooms.
Disappointment - Not much going on nearby.
Other than that I felt this was a very good hotel, both during the day and night time.
The hotel grounds have pool side, gardens and beach with sun beds which is where we spent most of the week by the beach, next to the beach volley ball court - played every day it was great.
We travelled the island by car and driving in Kos is very easy even for the in-experienced
Other than the disappointments already mentioned, can't really fault the hotel and the hotel itself far outweighed these.
Would I go back - Yes Definitely - Not sure if it would be the same though in the height of the season, I seemed to get the impression the restaurant and all inclusive service wouldn't be able to cope as well - But that's a judgement rather than fact, but my instinct is usually right - I would go back June or September, but not July / August.
Enjoy your stay - it's not often I say that !
Get a car though! Get a car!
