I was going to write a review of the Kissos on my return after spending a week there returning 10th Oct. I was even more determined to write one after reading some of the more recent derogatory reviews for the same period I was there. I had to check that they were talking about the same hotel!! My wife and I stayed many times at this hotel and were always extremely pleased. This was my first visit there for about five years, this time, sadly as a single traveller. the staff, whatever their jobs were at all times extremely friendly and helpful. It seemed to be only some of the guests who were rude and aggressive towards them! It has always been my motto that you only earn respect by treating others with it. Some of the guests should take this to heart. Yes, like many, if not most of the package hotels you have to pay for tea making facilities and the safe. Its normal - get over it!! The food was excellent ( better than my last visit) There was always plenty of it and there was a good variety. I must have missed the roast potatoes every night, because I certainly didn't see them! I have stayed in so called 'better' hotels, where the food has not been half as good.The entertainment was reasonable. If you want five star entertainment then you must pay five star prices. My room was always clean, I certainly didn't need to stoop to placing pieces of cotton on the floor in order to check up! Yes, some areas, noticeably the bathrooms could do with an upgrade - but everything was clean and was working so it didn't cause me a problem. If you have a problem, the management including the owner are always about and happy to listen. If I have one small moan it's the introduction of the 'All inclusive' package. All inclusive being a matter of choice this causes more work for the bar staff which can cause friction for those waiting for drinks. Hotels and holiday companies need to realise that not everybody wants this deal and they must get away from the 'one size fits all' mentality - not all hotels are suitable for or need 'all inclusive' and the Kissos in my opinion is one of them. Finally don't be put of by the bad reviews, I have the feeling that many people only take a holiday to give them something to moan about! This is a well situated, well run friendly, comfortable hotel. You won't be disappointed by the staff, food or accommodation. This is a hotel that I would thoroughly recommend to those wanting a good relaxing holiday at a reasonable price.
