We came here, on 26th June, for a fortnight. We booked a part- sea view, and had a room in the main building which had a panoramic view of the sea - on a clear day you could see Turkey!
The hotel was very clean, and the staff were lovely and very friendly. The food was brilliant - breakfast was amazing - plenty of choice, and we were able to sit out n the fresh air - there was only one day where some inconsiderate people puffed smoke all over us and our meal!
We stayed half-board, and found drinks were exceedingly expensive. However, we used to go to Romeo's Bar opposite the hotel, where we always had a fantastic welcome by the owner, and food and drink was more than half the price at the hotel!
The lobby was closed for a few hours, the one day, but that was because they were filming a new promotion video for the hotel. (We had a letter put through our door about it.)
The pools were lovely -very salty! There were plenty of sunbeds, even when people had done the usual 'towel-on-bed reserving. We preferred to go to the quieter pool at the end, by the sea. The beach was very stony - you need shoes to go in the sea.
I agree about the many Germans and Russians - the children were allowed to run wild, and I had one German woman and child physically push me out of the way when I was swimming in the lazy river! Having said that, I also met some very friendly Germans, Finns, and Armenians when I 'did' the aqua gym every morning!
We caught the local bus into Kos town a few times - 1.60 euros in, and 1 euro 50 back (ticket bought from kiosk at 'bus station'). Kos town is well worth a visit - with all it's shops, bars, and historical sites.
All in all, it was a good holiday, but would like to try the hotel next door (the Oceanis), as it is an adults only hotel!
