I was at this Doubletree for a week long conference. I have pictures up on Facebook of the beach and views from my room. All of that is great. Breakfast and dinner buffets are the typical Greek cuisine, flavorful, but not over the top. A decent wine list too. There was no WiFi in the rooms and hardwire would not let you on the Internet, but would allow you to download emails.... sometimes. You must walk to either the beach restaurant for wifi or to the hotel lobby. Service is what you would expect from a 5 star hotel and the staff are very friendly. Zoi, I hope your shoulder is better. There are many swimming pools, some are for use by only a few rooms. The beach has plenty of loungers and umbrellas and the water is crystal clear. I recommend this hotel if you are in Kos, but you'll need a car to visit anywhere, as this hotel is isolated from the nearest village by at least 3KM.
