“A must return to”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

Just back having spent two weeks in paradise!! First holiday in 4 years and normally I'm ready to come home by day 10! Not so this time. Have to agree with previous positive comments. Absolute spotless apartments. Even although I'm a tv addict, didn't miss not having a tv. A quiet resort but within walking distance to busier Lardos and Pefkos. George and his family give you a right royal welcome its like home from home. Very popular with resrort that you WILL want to go back to!! It's certainly going to be our choice from now on!! As with most of the guests who have returned year after year!! Thank you George you fixed Kenny. See you next year if your not fully booked!! Kath & Kenny

Was drawn to hotel by positive reviews and was not disappointed. The hotel is ran exceptionally well by George and family. Pool bar is good at day or night, excellent value, good quality food and reasonable drinks prices.

George always worked very hard to ensure everything went smoothly from our arrival to our departure, he took time to know names, background, likes and dislikes and used this information to improve our holiday.

Only downer is that hotel is miles from anywhere decent. We usually went to Lindos as this was a much better resort than either Lardos or Pefkos which are closer by. A car is a must, but for me it should be used on a holiday anyway unless you just wish to laze by the pool...which can be done here no problem anyway.

It is true that many guests are repeat visitors but I can see why, as for this causing us problems, it didn't in any way, everyone was very friendly and it made for a very relaxed atmosphere

Would we return? We would possibly break a 'no place twice' rule we have and return one day.

To summarise....exceptional value.

Best hotel on Rhodes island by a mile. Clean friendly and relaxing. George and his family who run the hotel are just fantastic and nothing is to much trouble for them.Cant wait to go back next year. Recommend Pefkos beach for swimming and snorkelling and a beautiful restaurant / cafe at the top of the beach. Some lovely restaurtants especially in Lardos. The food in the hotel pool bar is cheap and very good, Dont miss the Greek night.

Mrs P and I stayed at Cosmos Maris in July 2011 where we met some wonderful friends and had a fantastic break, decided to return again for a fortnight arriving 7th July to meet up with the three couples we had met last year, we had an absolute ball, George and all , were wonderful, the food pool side is fab and what a selection, I do recommend the seafood salad!!. We had room 40 which is on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool, the room itself was clean with two large beds with firm mattresses , which we like. A small cooker and fridge freezer is in the room but to be quite honest rarely used the cooker.
We travelled to Rhodes Old town which was lovely, and found nice restaurants in nearbye Lindos and Pefkos, also revisited Yamas Bar and Roulos Restaurant.Took the local bus most of the time to get to where we were going which was reasonably priced and a 'Taxi' back which again was reasonable.
If you are feeling adventurous you can take a climb up the 'mountain' overlooking Cosmos Maris which 'the lads' and I did, left at 6am returning at 9.15...knackered but some wonderful views,also make sure correct footwear being worn.
I was surprised to read a complaint about 'sunbed snatchers' as we found no problem in getting beds by the pool at anytime of the day.
Enjoyed 'The Greek Night', 'Mamma Mia' and 'The Quiz night'......which was good fun and this is where you find most of the guest mingle and participate and get to know each other.
I honestly do not think this resort is for families with children as not a great deal to do for kids, although the small amount of kids that were here seemed to enjoy the pool.
The hotel and pool are very clean, food is fab and I have to say have never laughed so much on holiday had a great time from start to finish'
We are returning for 3-in-a-row July 2013, we have all booked up already......Thanks again to George, family and staff see you next year!!

We stayed at the Cosmos for two weeks in August/2012. We chose the Hotel because of the great reviews. The staff were indeed very welcoming and friendly and the room was very clean. We don't usually go for package holidays, as we prefer non-touristy places, but we wanted a base from which to explore Rhodes and this Hotel was fine for our needs. The food in the pool bar is OK, but don't expect authentic Greek. I would recommend hiring a car from George's car hire (just in fromt of the Hotel) much cheaper than through the Thompson rep. We got away from the noisy tourist places and headed to the South of the Island. We found many lovely welcoming little traditional Tavernas in the villages inland and some fabulous quiet beeches along the way. the most amazing place is Prasonisi, the Southern tip of Rhodes. Amazing for kite/wind surfing or, just to watch the experts at play!

We stayed at the Cosmos Maris for a weeks stay on the 14 july 2012. The hotel is very clean and all the staff very friendly!Our rooms where cleaned daily to a high standard. We didnt stay around the hotel as we hired a car so we could really experiance Rhodes. I would recommend car hire as there was not much to do near the hotel, Pefkos is near by but to me and my husband i would recommend a visit to lindos town as it is a truly beautiful village with some fantastic resturants and views. The hotel was perfect for what we wanted and drinks around the pool where well priced. Thank you George and family!
