“Aqua Blu lovers”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

When I started writing this small review, I am enjoying a fresh brewed espresso at the bar (always served with a big smile and a good morning by mr Vanghelis). This is part of my daily routine now. Just waking up, having coffee and having some breakfast. All year I am travelling around the world for work. I see a lot of hotels but in none of them I allow myself to enjoy the place, the luxury of the hotel and the hospitality of the professionals working there. Last year we discovered Aqua Blu. Now (August 2014) we were back for the fifth time. Normally me and my wife do not visit destinations and hotels twice when we spend leisure time. Aqua Blu is the exception to the rule. Hotel Manager Maria Strati (for those of you who read all the other reviews she is already well known) gives her upmost to fulfil the promise of a 5 star boutique experience. She understands what exceeding expectations is really about. Combined with all the other reviews in which Mrs Strati and Aqua Blu are described, it is not necessary to point this out in more detail. For those who really like luxury, a real 5 star experience and for those who allow themselves to enjoy it: Aqua Blu is the perfect destination.

For those who are interested, just a small overview of what we do during a day at Aqua Blu. After we have breakfast we go to the pool. The pool area is one of the main relaxation areas of the hotel in which you can enjoy the sun, a swim, drinks and amazing food. The host at the pool (Maricel) makes live even more convenient. All day long he serves us with drinks and food on the large sunbeds. In the afternoon we go to the spa to enjoy some treatments. At the evening we prepare ourselves for dinner at Cuvée Restaurant from chef Stamatis Marmarinos (If you are interested, please see our review about Cuvée itself). The following days we repeat this again and again. This is a real holiday for us. We adore it and we will be back in October!

The Aqua Blu Hotel is a small and very unique hotel. Within one day most of the staff members knew and welcomed us. Whenever we needed something we could be sure that someone would be around and happy to help us. The hotel is very clean and modern. The rooms look great but everything is really open. People sharing a room should know each other pretty well since the bathroom is an open part of the whole hotel room. Only the toilet is separated.
The staff is always keeping their professionality but even though this is a 5 star hotel the atmosphere is not to stiff and cold but friendly and open.
Special thanks goes to Sev, Maricel, Erik, Cristos, Annes and this young women who is always welcoming the guests in the morning and who's name we sadly forgot. We had a very nice talk with her at one of the manager nights. You guys are doing an incredible job. Our stay in kos was really relaxing and fun because of you and the other staff.
It would just have been nice to get to know Maria Strati a bit better to see what the manager of this great hotel is like. Sadly she was pretty busy talking to the other guests. Maybe next time.
We enjoyed being your guests and friends!
See you.

The hotel and the staff from the bellboy to the cafe staff to the spa was top class. This is a place you want to be if you need to recharge and be thoroughly spoilt! Five star service and yet reasonably priced if is easy to see why this is part of the Small Luxury Hotel Group. The hotel Manager is ever present and seeks out her customers and personally make a certain that they are relaxed and happy. This is by far one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in I highly recommend it!

I went on holiday to Aqua Blu in May, as mine and my boyfriends first holiday. Flying out of season, we managed to get a fantastic deal. To our surprise, when we arrived, we were upgraded to a room with our own private pool. The staff could not have been more helpful with anything we asked for - the glass of prosecco and nibbles on arrival were much appreciated by that time at night!
It's a short journey to Kos Town, if you can ride a bike (which I learnt whilst here!), and the hotel will happily organize bicycle rental for you at a great price.
Thank you all at Aqua Blu for such an incredible holiday, I could not recommend it enough.

Aqua blu hotel was a nice experience. We usually stay around the world in SLH and this one was also fully worth it. Our private pool room was rather simple but the private pool itself paid us back. 
I would recommended the pool on the west side because you enjoy the sun longer. 
The breakfast with spectacular view at the beach side was nice as well as the buffet. I missed a bit more variety of vegetables and fruits. If u are a fun of classic pancakes here u will be not satisfied. But the rest was perfect!
Reception guys were very helpful especially Thomas and Irini. They are always smiling and willing to help us with nice recommendations and tips about restaurants and beaches.
We tried once Cuve restaurant, it was nice, but I think one time is enough. What I personally didnt like was the cocktails menu in Cuve. But in bar u can find what ever u want.
Spa was also very nice especially with the very warm and nice manager Mia. I took body massage and I can just strongly recommended it!
Hotel beach is average so I think renting a car and travel around the island where u can find really fantastic beaches especially at the south towards Kefalos is a must.
In general we really enjoyed our vacation in this hotel. 


Room Tip: I recommended room number 105 :)

We really like Aqua Blue Hotel + Spa in terms of hospitality, kindly approaches of staff, leadership of Maria Strati, decoration of hotel, ambiance, service quality and delicious food taste...
We strongly reccommended Aqua Blu Hotel + Spa if you like relax, calmness and serenity.
The breakfast is amazing, simple and satisfying and speacially Greek Omlet was magnificent taste. Excellent outdoor swimming Pool with Jacuzi. Guest quality is high so you feel all time good your self. Cuvee's tasting and foods was delight, design food and staff so kind. Rooms are large, confortable and housekeeping service excellent. All staffs looks happy, they are so enthusiastic and professional also they enjoy doing their jobs they reflex their positivity to the guests. So thanks a lot Maria, Elina, Mr.Minas, Chris, Miranda, Irina, Ana, Thomas, Eli, Sterios, Catalin, Maya, Eric and all team. See you soon:)

I stayed at this hotel for a week at the end of May. It was an excellent holiday. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. The food at breakfast was lovely. Sadly we only ate in the Cuvee restaurant on our last night and it was amazing. If or should I say when we return we will eat there more often. Thank you to Maria and all her staff for a lovely trip Gaye and Stewart
