We have just returned from a 7 night stay and found the overall standard equal and above to most four star hotels we have stayed in over the years.
Lets get the negative points out of the way: (These are in my opinion just constructive criticism and did not cause any problems during our stay)
Lack of evening entertainment , there was some laid on by the team, but our party did not want to walk down the site, sit on hard concrete seats, with NO BAR and then when you walked back to the reception you would be lucky to get a seat on the terrace or reception. It is about time the hotel looked at this issue.
The rooms (ours were on the ground floor over looking the rear) were nice and quiet, the view was spoilt by the hedge and the weeds in the in the floor beds outside the rear door.
The mattress was very hard and after a few nights spoilt a good nights sleep. The shower heads in all three rooms would not stay up and stay straight
Lastly we paid 25 euro for a safe and had to carry round a key all week,( most hotels have a combination lock you can set yourself) and the safe in all three rooms were not bolted down to anything thing and could be lifted out of the room at any time.
Now the plus side:
All the staff were very friendly and could not do enough to make sure you enjoy your stay. The girls at the pool bar and main bars deserve a special mention, they always had a smile and did there best to reduce the queues as quickly as possible.
The cleaners worked very hard all day to keep the grounds, public areas, and rooms very clean.
The restaurant staff were very helpful and friendly, we needed a table for 7 and they always made sure we did not have to wait more than a couple of minutes ant any time. The food was better than I expected after reading previous reviews, there was a good choice of breads, meat, salads, veg, pasta and the deserts were well presented and quite tasty. The pizza man made of the best pizzas we have tasted.
The entertainment team worked very hard to provide entertainment with out being pushy, the are being hampered in providing a top quality programme but lack of investment and foresight by the hotel owners.
To sum up we all had a very enjoyable holiday and would go to back to this hotel if every we came back to Koss and would recommend it to friends and family.
