Stayed at this lovely little hotel at the beginning of May and while the weather wasn't good for the first couple of days ( I had to walk into Kos town to buy a swearshirt!) The warmth of the welcome from all the staff made up for that.
The layout of the buildings in the beautifully kept gardens made it all seem very private. There was a definite feeling of calm and tranquillity. There are no tea/coffee making facilities, but I knew that so came prepared. Room was kept spotlessly clean, not a job I envy when you consider that you can't flush toilet tissue it has to go in the bin!
The food was fine, never particularly hot, but if you timed it right you were okay and the DIY waffles at breakfast were sooooo good.
We aren't pool people, but the beach was much further than the 500mtrs advertised and very windy so pool it was. This is my only negative. The pool area is very small and if you were staying here in high season it would be nigh on impossible to get a sunbed.
The drinks included in the "all inclusive" as mentioned before being beer, wine, ouzo and brandy is a little bizarre, but hey "When in Rome...." and there is a supermarket just up the road where you can purchase your favourite tipple to keep in your room.
Kos town is perfectly walkable either by the main road with all the shops or the beach front way and it is a lovely town and yes there is even a McDonalds should you be so inclined and for herbs and spices the market is a must. All in all had a great break and this little hotel deserves a much higher star rating than it has.
