“THIRD VISIT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

We would like to thank all the staff for our third stay at the Platanista,everyone seems happy to be working there and
that shines like the sun to the majority of the guests.The Hotel is spotless,and the food varied and excellent quality.
Stavroula remembered us and made sure we were comfortable and happy with our room,Spartak took care of the
evenings bar refreshment and is second to none re the way he runs the bar.We hope we will be able to return in the
future,and see everybody once again.

just returned from a weeks stay at the hotel platanista and can really say that this hotel should not be classed as a 4 star +arrived late no food offered told to walk to some bar down the road not ideal when you have no idea where you are or where you are going.our first room ground floor at the back of hotel can only be discribed as dingy and pokey got moved to first floor next morning after a night of hell keeped awake until 2am by loud drunks and clip clopping of high heels on tiled floors then only to woken up at 4amby loud fowl mouths screaming and shouting at each other after 15 mins rang reception they did stop it but at 5am started again.someof the staff work so hard Maria especially from restuarant that brings us on to the food ,it is certainly not 4+ cuisine and the cats should not be allowed to roam around the dining tables one even jumped on to my husbands chair to get at his food begging cats at meal times is just not right. the animation team unbelivable entertament non existant. the only good thing about this hotel is that it is clean.

Room Tip: go for the rooms over looking tennis court

Returned this morning after a weeks holiday at the Platanista ( our first visit but won't be our last ). The Hotel fulfilled everything we had read about it. The rooms were comfortable and spotless, the food excellent ,plentiful and exceedingly varied . The waiters were brilliant, they made us feel really comfortable and were all very friendly indeed, in fact all the staff members ( including the Animation Team ) were exceedingly pleasant , cheerful and always very very willing to be of help at all times. The 2 pool areas were bliss, plenty of sunbeds, no towel fights and background music which was background and didn't deafen you , a real sense of peace to chill out in. The pools were a tad nippy, but very clean. The Hotel itself and the grounds were a haven of peace and very pleasant to walk through. The Hotel Beach Area was nice and again not too busy ( the sea was very warm ) but perhaps it would be politic not to charge for the sunbeds and brolly's. Our only blip was one evening when some new guests arrived just after 10.30pm and were eating in the Main Bar consequently we ( and other guests ) were ignored and not served ( or even approached for our order even though we had indicated we required some drinks when we arrived in the Bar ), however we went back to the Pool Bar where the service was impeccable !!. We also met people who had been going to the Platanista for 20 years which actually speaks for itself !. A fabulous holiday and would recommend this Hotel universally.

Fourth year staying at the Platanista, still excellent although this year was a little different, I broke my ankle in three places not at the hotel but on the road leading to the beach.
The staff couldn't have been more helpful, they even drove me to hospital, they provided wheelchair and we never had to wait for a table in the evenings.
Staff brilliant, friendly and accommodating. The Platanista is not large built in the Moorish style in blocks which are attractive, lovely gardens well kept pools and good bars, prices we reckoned were about the same as last year.
The Platanista has a small private beach with plenty of sun loungers 5 euros a day, it is luckily outside Kos town but there is an excellent bus service, also plenty of cycle hire.
Plenty of goood food withn a large variety at all meals, service is excllent even though it is all buffet style, quality excellent.Weather superb as always with a sea breeze.
Ther only drawback is Kos airport small overcrowded and busy.

Room Tip: Rooms on first floors of the blocks better, althouth this is not a noisy hotel

Hotel was excellent with the food being varied and waiter service was excellent . What amazed me most was that the hotel ( heavily weighted with German sausage eaters ) and specifically the pool didnt have a towel war and beds were readily available .

We booked a superior room but it was no different to the standard rooms so i would tend to save your money , clean and tidy , the guy that showed us to our room laughed when we suggested we might have a sea view .
overall though very good

1 of best family stays ever. Travel a lot, have seen many hotels and must say Platanista is perfect for a family holiday, well organised with good quality food, service and entertainment. Bonus was that people behaved during dinner. They didn't loaded their plate huge, were polite and finished most of it. The girls liked it a lot, so it was a good relaxing holiday for dad. :-) Had lots of fun around the pool. Thx to the animation team Ryan, Martin and Ingrid. Food and service is Great with a big "G". Beach close by with a great restaurant w/sea view. Close to Kos-Town on biking distance. Just a hotel I would recommend and I consider going back next year. What else do we need?

Our first visit to Kos and the hotel was recommended by friends. We were not disappointed, a wonderful hotel, a lovely room, very clean with a good bathroom and plenty of storage. Spacious pool areas give a relaxed feel, with plenty of sunbeds.
Check in was quick and efficient and we were soon sat enjoying a drink at the bar on the terrace.
The food was so good with plenty of choice and the option to eat outside was always our favourite.
We must say a special thanks to the lovely staff at the hotel, the bar manager and particularly Pantelis, our wonderful waiter, very professional, so friendly and helpful.
A local bus service at the bottom of the road gives easy access to Kos Town or a lovely stroll along the front past the Marina, unless you enjoy a bike ride.
