Our first impression was very positive, the lobby area and bar were both very smart. The staff were very warm and friendly on arrival and throughout our stay. In fact, the staff were a real asset to the hotel, being attentive but not overbearing and multi-lingual. Many of the guests at the hotel are not English. We are a couple in our early thirties and noticed that other guests were mostly older in their fifties/sixties.
We were delighted with our room, the rose petals on the bed and wine were a nice touch. The room was quiet with a beautiful view over a pool and onto the beach. Maid service was daily, with fresh bath and beach towels. Bathrobes were provided though the addition of slippers would have been nice.
The grounds were beautiful with numerous rose bushes and paved paths leading around several pools and onto the beach. The lobby bar had a beautiful view over the grounds and ocean. Everywhere was very clean and well maintained.
The all inclusive option included a wide range of drinks, including beer, wine, spirits and cocktails. The food was of good quality and there was an extensive range at every meal. If we were being picky, we would say that there could be more premium food available, but for the price we paid there was more than enough choice, and everything was good.
We thought the hotel was excellent value for money. We could imagine in peak season things could get a little crowded, but this was not the case for us. There were numerous sun loungers both around the pool and by the beach. Music was also played only at low volume and we found the whole hotel to be very peaceful.
The location of the hotel is approximately 4km from the centre of Kos town, which took us at least an hour to walk. It would have been nice to have a shorter walk, but bicycle hire is no problem, and we were more than happy to be in and around the hotel anyway. There is also a bus into town which was a couple of euros, and the bus stop is right outside the hotel. Kos town is pleasant enough and there are some interesting historical places to visit.
We can understand that it may not be five star by "rest of world" standards, but we certainly had no complaints. Overall, we were delighted with this hotel, particularly the staff. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the hotel to friends.
