We recently returned from a two week family holiday at this great hotel. Our children are 20 and 19. It was a very relaxing environment with the rooms set in lovely gardens(see photos). The pool area was spacious, enough sunbeds even though we were there in peak season and the pool was never crowded. The rooms are a traditional style well maintained and cleaned daily. The views from the dining area are fantastic as it is on the first floor, there were views towards Kos town and the mountains. The hotel has a laid back atmosphere, there was entertainment on a couple of evenings and there is a tennis court and basketball court for people to go and play. Equipment can be borrowed from reception. There is also a gym on the roof, along with a Jacuzzi. If you are looking for organised activities this hotel isn't for you. But that's what makes it a relaxing place to stay.
The food was excellent, plenty of choice at all meals. It was a shame that the ice cream often ran out by the time we were ready for dessert. A couple of times the waiter did put some more out. When we hired a car for the day, we were able to order packed lunches which was great!
One disappointment was the lack of choice of drinks for an all inclusive 3 star hotel. The only spirits included are ouzo and brandy. In previous 3 star hotels we have stayed at there has been a much wider choice of spirits. We were a bit concerned about the use of glasses around the pool area, we did mention it, it is something they are aware of and do monitor. People say that they like having their drinks in glass rather than plastic.
A plus point was that on our last day, we were not leaving until mid evening. We were able to have meals and drinks up until we left which doesn't often happen.
The hotel is a 20 minute walk form the centre of Kos Town and 15 minutes to the beach. It is a great location, away from the hustle and bustle of the town, but close enough to walk to it easily.
Opposite there is a place to hire bikes and cars which we did, cycling is really popular there are cycle lanes in and around Kos Town. We hired bikes 3 times to get out to other places along the coast and inland to a roman site.We also walked into Kos Town several times, its a vibrant town with lots going on around the harbour and in the town itself.
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday on Kos and our stay at Gaia Garden and recommend it for a relaxing holiday away from the crowds.All the staff at the hotel were friendly and worked really hard, they are a great team! Thank you for a great holiday!
