Ranked #9 of 48 Hotels in Kos Town
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 September 2013

All the right things were there for an excellent but for one thing. All inclusive local drinks wine, small beer,ozzo or local brandy. A vodka and coke or gin and tonic around 4-4.50 euro. This also applies after 11pm. If you want a chat and a drink with friends buy at the local supermarket and sit outside of the room not only will you save money but you will be able to hear. There is only one bar an 9pm onwards is loud.

This is our 4th year going to Gaia Garden and we love the family hospitality. The people are friendly any have gotten to know us by name. The Food is Great and always something different to select daily...Very close to the beach and the city KOS. The children had a blast in the pool and would not want to come out :) Very Clean and well kept and love the new kids playground!!!!!

We have just returned from a two week stay at the Gaia Garden. the staff were amazing and we got married whilst we were there and the hotel did so much to ease the stress. They sent a cocktail to my room while I was getting ready to leave and also a bottle of bubbly, we look forward to returning
The food was excellent and the rooms were clean. The pool was great too

the staff could not be more helpful and polite. Food amazing and such a choice. If you could not find something you liked then there must be something wrong with you. Room basic but very clean with maid service daily. We had a family room which was spacious and at the far end of the complex. Pool lovely and plenty of sun loungers.
Drinks all day long and a great selection.
Hotel just 6 minute walk from supermarket and 9 minutes to a lovely beach where you can get a sunlounger for free is you purchase a drink. Family of four spent 3 hours there for 6.20 Euros for 3 drinks.
Only things we thought could be improved are the glasses at poolside, there were 4 times whilst we were there that they got smashed, this is a health and safety issue. other thing was in some areas the smell of the drains were awful, sure this could be looked at. in the restaurant they allow smokers in the largest area with a very small area for non smokers.nothing worse for small children to have to breath in smoke from selfish people who can not go without a fag for a while and let others eat in clean air.
Again staff polite and we would go back here if we ever went to Kos again

We stayed at this lovely hotel in August and we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is traditional in style and has a rustic appeal. this was a welcome relief after seeing other hotels in the Kos town area which we would not have liked.
The bungalow room we had was adequate in space and had plenty of storage and freshly painted. The bed was brand new and was exceptional quality and so comfortable which is rare in some Greek hotels. The bathroom was in need of a little attention but a problem we encountered was rectified that day.
The food was very good, always hot, lots of choice and a picnic pack up was available if you ventured out.
The pool and surrounding areas were really clean and tidy.
this hotel is getting it right for the traveller who has a budget but wants traditional quality food and peace and quiet in lovely garden surroundings.

Liked the look of this hotel as soon as we saw it online. It certainly didn't let us down. After not holidaying abroad for years we were quite specific in what we wanted and was sure that something would let us down. How wrong. The hotel is absolutely stunning, clean and beautifully presented, the gardens stunning. Very traditional style which is what we had looked for. The staff are so cheery and helpful. The rooms are cleaned everyday, beds made and clean towels. Air conditioning was great (no charge) and on looking many hotels charge extra for this. All inclusive option for the drinks was good and adequate for us. We weren't looking to go and get paralytic every day, it was nice to have the option of beer/wine with lunch or dinner or whenever you wanted with drinks, being served from 10am-11pm. The quality of the food being all inclusive was a concern before we went but we needn't have worried. It was amazing. Quality, quantity, it really did exceed our expectations. Not one day did i think, aw no that again. We did only go for a week so some things could have repeated the following week, but it wouldn't have bothered me because it was all just so lovely. The dining area had lovely views and a cooling breeze. We only sat inside one lunch time (first day) and it was just too hot. We seemed to time lunch and dinner just right after that though with no need to wait for a table. The pool was clean, a good size and deep with plenty of loungers, only downside or my bugbear was the towels on the bed, or that some left them on constantly!!! but we went to the beach everyday and found this suited us. Lovely beach and sea. The supermarket, right turn from hotel, is short walk down the road and we found it was a lot cheaper for certain items than supermarkets into Kos town. The location was approx 20/25 min walk into Kos town but we had hired bikes which made it a lot easier getting around especially on the cycle paths. Having bikes we explored around our hotel area and in my opinion we had made the perfect choice. We loved it so much that we decided to book for 2 weeks next year and have also made it our honeymoon destination. We booked with the same tour operator but couldn't book the suite we wanted so contacted the hotel and the ever helpful staff have sorted and confirmed our arrangements direct with us. Would definitely recommend Kos Town and definitely definitely recommend Gaia Gardens Hotel. Thanks for a lovely holiday and see you next year :o)

We have just returned from a week at Gaia Gardens. The hotel was kept very clean with excellent maid service. The food was okay but usually the same options were served all the time, but that's okay. I had to buy most of my alcoholic drinks as the all inclusive alcohol was very limited. A very cheap wine, a very poor larger and a few spirits were included in the all inclusive package. Vodka was not included. All the sun loungers were reseved by 7.30am however most would remain empty until mid day or not used at all. One day we had to sunbathe on chairs as all sun loungers were reserved, this was not ideal. However needs must, we were suprised to be told by staff to return the chairs imeadeatly. I found this to be unreasonable and tried to reach a comprimise as there was no where to sit, unfortunatley I was ignored. Also please be aware that the triple rooms are not triple rooms, they are double rooms with a camp bed squeezed in. I would not return or recommend this hotel.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us at Gaia Garden Hotel.
Your voting in each section shows your opinion of our services and we can only be disappointed to know that you have kept such and unpleasant memory from us. It is not usual at all, for us to receive a feedback which is not recommending our hotel, so please let us clarify a few points. Regarding the accommodation, we offer several types of rooms but it’s not always possible to combine all of your requests. Especially, during really busy days we try our best to facilitate as many of our guests but unfortunately we cannot please every desire. Regarding the staff, the team of Gaia Garden tries to behave according our guests' expectations so maybe when the pool was very crowded and you used the chairs, it was caused a misunderstanding in your conversation, considering the fact that they or you, took the matter into consideration in a different way.
For that reason I will be happy to personally contact me in order to find out what happened exactly and you haven’t be fully satisfied.
To conclude, I would like to thank you once more for choosing us and we honestly hope to have soon the opportunity to recreate a new memorable stay for you!

Always at your disposal.

Kind Regards,
Emmanuel Christodoulides
