“NiNa beach great place to stay (an unbiased opinion )”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Please ignore the negative reviews/ reports
My self and family stayed at the Nina hotel from the 22nd of September
For a week , there was 2 disabled members in the party and the hotel looked after us like we were royalty ,on arrival we were give 2 rooms with showers (walk-in) on the ground floor as near to the restaurant and reception as possible , The only draw back is there are about 6-8 steps to get in and out of the hotel but luckily for us the disabled people could manage them (there is a lift in the building which we were made aware of and told just use it when you need to . we were told if we needed anything at all just pick up the phone and ring , How’s that for a welcome.
Any way the hotel is very clean and the staff pride them selves on providing excellent service (which they do) from the chamber maids to the managers and owners and they were always polite and very helpful nothing was a problem.
The rooms were average size for a hotel with a small fridge dressing table , wardrobes the usual set up , all the amenity’s worked fine including the sockets , the beds were single’s firm but not uncomfortable ,Air condition was available at an extra 6 euros(a standard charge across Greece), a small balcony had a mosquito netted door as well as the usual glass doors which worked fine.
The restaurant was nicely laid out and again the staff were very helpful, when asked what’s on tonight they would show us what dishes were available and explain what was in it (all the food was defiantly edible despite some of the claims by other reviewers) The food was a buffet and seemed to be supplied for the majority of the guest which were either German or from the Cech republic, Which was fine and we understood the reasons why .
Breakfast was buffet style (continental) and evening meals were the same (buffet style) there was souvlaki, gyros, mousaka, ice cream ,cakes, fruit - apples, mango, oranges. All available
The pool and pool bar areas were always well maintained and clean with plenty sun beds etc. for the guests. The pool bar was a bit quiet on a night time but not for long with the noise we were making.
The Bar staff were excellent always courteous and game for a bit of a laugh.
Any way we would love to return to the hotel we were made very welcome as always in Greece ,
Oh the nearest cash machine is in marmari its self about 1-1/2 km away but a nice walk. And the local shops take c/card .
Also Budget cars on the island were brilliant after the uk company made a mess of my hire car booking and we were sent a fiat punto car to put 2 wheelchairs in LOL , the company seen the problem straight away and up graded us F.O.C to a mini bus whish was brilliant of them

My partner and I booked a last minute holiday through an on-line company for mid-september 2012, we didn't have a lot of time or choices for the dates we could travel - but were happy to find what looked like a fairly decent hotel on the beautiful island of Kos. Kos really is a beautiful place to visit and would recommend highly, some of the best beaches and clear water that I have visited - not the Nina Beach Hotel though. Staff were not very friendly at all, any question asked at the reception seemed to be too much effort for them to answer, there was no local information provided on arrival - just very poorly arranged photocopies stuck to the front desk - mostly in German. A small map / guide would have been of great benefit.
The nearest cash machine is a good 45 mins walk away along the beach ( the only one in one of two nearest towns - 3kms away ), this was an inconvenience as the hotel would not take card payment when we were charged an extra 36 Euros for air-con - in the heat this was an absolute must! The rooms were clean but very dated and basic, we have both returned with very bad backs as the beds were like glorified camp beds, no good for anyone already experiencing back problems. The walls are very thin - you can hear everything happening in the room next-door and every footstep along the corridor - earplugs recommended! The food was very poor, buffet breakfast and evening meal, was not something we looked forward to as we usually eat very healthily and like to try local dishes. If you like fruit and vegetables ( which there is an abundance of on the island ) you will be disappointed with the school dinner style mush of Hotel Nina, over boiled frozen veg, some meat dish ( still not sure what meat it was, but it did have slithers of spam mixed in.....), bland soggy pasta and stale bread. Needless to say, we wasted our hard earned money paying for half-board and ended up eating out more than we planned, which cost more but was much more true to the lovely dishes of the island. There are some excellent local tavernas with really lovely staff ( George at the Aegean Taverna and the owner at Cave D'Oro served us delicious local dishes ) and if you wander to local shops there is lovely fresh fruit to enjoy. There was very little entertainment at the hotel, in the evenings - a pool bar with no atmosphere but ok cocktails, and possibly the smallest 'crazy golf' course in the world - if you do like watching television on holiday - you will need to pay for that too. The redeeming features of this hotel are that the pool is very clean and well maintained with a good provision of loungers and shade on offer, and the great view of the mountains from our balcony. We have come home feeling a somewhat 'ripped-off' with this holiday.

Greeting from Czech republic

* Room - clean, good size, a little bit old fashioned
TV sat with 5 channels only, impossible to locate others, bad visibility
mosquito net - very good, problem with mosquito in the restaurant in the evening
some sockets do not work eg. room 112 socket in the corner, under TV

* Housekeeping - very good
* Swimming pool - very good
* Bar - very good and the waitress the best of them, you must be proud of her
* Hotel - why do you charge for table tennis, football game, mini golf? it does not cost a fortune to leave it free
it is unbelievable not to have wifi - I must be online everyday and do not want to pay 1,50 per 20 minutes so
I went for coffee paid 2,00 for coffee at the beach and have wifi for how long I wanted
* Restaurant - very big problem, photos seemed good but the reality was different
every day cucumber tomato one kind of cheese, two of salami, jam, honey,cornflakes, sausage,
hard boiled eggs, no change, no surprise, it can be done in various ways
- dinner - one kind of meat + one baked, pasta, peas, rice, cucumber, tomato
only 6 hot plates for a main dish, we deserve greater choice
tzatziki once a week feta once a week
everyday melon and melon
everyday mousse
what about some cakes, souvlaki, gyros, mousaka, fruit - apples, banana, mango, oranges...
- I was really unsatisfied with half board, we paid 168 Eur for a double room one week in Hersonissos in 3*
hotel for all inclusive last September and believe me or not, we were very satisfied, three kinds of meat,
potato, chips, pasta etc
I will recommend your hotel for hospitality, staff, cleaness, location, surrounding but never I am sorry for board, no inovation, no idea, no choice, no variability
Have you tasted coffee or chocolate from coffee machine? horrible impossible to drink, maybe drink but the real coffee or chocolate from coffee machine taste a little bit else
Your hotel invites families and we have to pay about 550 eur for one week stay, I think they will appreciate soft drinks free of charge for dinner, they can not alllow to pay 2 euro for coke or juice every day for each member

Room Tip: second floor is better less mosquito

We have just returned from our holiday at the Nina Beach Hotel, which had both positive and negative sides to our stay there.
We stayed there for one weeks holiday in September and arrived there at about 2.30 in the morning. The hotel was in darkness apart from the reception area, the staff on duty was friendly and helpful and we got our keys to the room. The room had a communicating door between our room and next doors room, which was probably there for families. This door was a sliding door and was locked shut by wedging paper and cardboard between the wall and the door our side. The room had an en suite with bath and shower into the bath it was clean but dated and tired looking. The room was clean and had all you would need, however it was also in need of an update. Air condition was available at an extra 6 euros a day in the room and it had a small balcony with a table and two chairs which you could see the sea about 500 metres away.
The hotel had a very good swimming pool which was very clean with plenty of sunbeds and lots of shady areas for people looking for the shade. There was a pool bar which also supplied snack/light lunch food. The prices were comparable with local bars in the area.
There was also inside the hotel internet access a table tennis table a pool table and table top football, these were at a local charge. There was an outside play area for children with swings etc and a crazy golf course. On paper these look good facilities but they did look tired and need of updating. In general the hotel was very clean and had been open since 1994, it looked like it would benefit from some investment and updating.
The food was buffet and seemed to be supplied for the majority of the guest which were either German or from the Cech republic.It was bland but edible. They could have done so much more with the ingredients they could have had more Greek dishes and maybe a BBQ night. Breakfast could have done with a bit more imagination, However this was not really aimed at the British guests.
The staff were very friendly and helpful from the top to the bottom and you could not fault their efforts in trying to make sure you have a good holiday.
We found it peaceful and relaxing which is what we needed, there was no young adults or small children when we went, this maybe because it was in school term and not much to attract the 18-30 club crew.

I must admit after reading some of the negative reviews about this hotel I was very anxious about what we might find. I am disgusted that people can be so cruel and put peoples lively-hood in jeopardy, as I found their comments unfair and untrue.We are a family of eight and so we had three rooms. We were given the choice of triple rooms with balcony or family rooms that are on the ground floor. We chose the triple rooms overlooking the gardens and mountains beyond. All three rooms were well maintained and spotlessly clean and if we had a request, nothing was too much trouble for the manager and owners alike.I can safely say that they went out of their way to make sure that we had a great stay at this hotel.The pool and gardens are beautiful and the restaurant served good quality food. This is a three star hotel with the service of a five star!

I have just returned from the Nina hotel with my boyfriend and have had such a good time!

The hotel is clean, with a clean pool - the pool is almost 3m deep and is a good size to swim in

The location is about 10 minutes from the beach, and about 15/20 minutes from the 'next' beach which has lots of fresh food restaurants and places to book different tours on. The hotel is in an area where I would suggest a buggy/car rental is needed - however, I enjoyed this as we could easily explore the island - Nina hotel offers a car rental place at reception

The food is average, however the hotel does offer different types of meat every day and does cater nice food for vegetarians

The bar at night is amazing! and has such a nice bar tender, we spend almost every night at the bar - we especially enjoyed the pool party at night, and also the greek evening which is held every 2 weeks

The hotel rooms are average

In Nina hotel, Nina and all staff are fluent speakers of English which is very helpful


The only downfalls I have to say about Nina hotel was that the double beds are made up of 2 single beds, and the air conditioning is priced at 6 euro per day if it is not paid by your travel agency

Overall this holiday was amazing, I would defiantly recommend

Well maintained hotel, very friendly staff and management, buffet breakfast and supper were very good, but no Greek dishes in the evening, the drew backs were, we were the only English guests in the hotel, everyone was either from Germany and the Czech rep, with a few Pols, this was reflected in the evening meals, boiled veg and pork.. location is a bit isolated, hiring a moped or a car would be advisable, as taxi's to kos town were 24 euro one way, there are any a couple of bars nearby, but again full of Germans and Czechs, there is a bus stop nearby which will take you to kos town for only 2 euros, which is great, but first bus is not till 0900. so if planning a trip to Turkey from kos town for the day, it is too late, so you will need a taxi.
all in all a fair place to stay if you just need to relax, and the Germans and Czechs will keep you entertained at meal times with their dreadful table manners.
