Me and the hub arrived for a 4 night break for our 10 year anniversay and were very impressed by both the level of service and friendly staff and also the cleanliness and impressiveness of the hotel as a whole.
Having arrived over 4 hours later than expected due to the flight, we felt our first day had been wasted. We opted for public transfers and that took about 50 mins to arrive at our hotel. Some of the hotels looked dodgy on the way and most are no where near a beach. Pulling up to our hotel on the sea front looking so prestine completely met my expectation (though I was a little sceptical it would be so nice after the previous drop offs)
When we arrived, We were greeted by the friendly receptionists and shown with our luggage taken to the room. We were tired and a little fed up at this point. Walking down to the room through the grounds was very impressive and our room was much larger than really necessary and also benefit of a fully stocked fridge included. when we open up the doors to the balcony, we had the most amazing sea view, a definate cheer up. After having looked round the hotel subsequently, I would say that our room closest to the sea anyway, was probably in the best location.
Outside our room was the small pool and bar. We were both suprised by how quiet a location this was. The barmaid, Gloria, remembered our drinks also which was great.
This was our first all inclusive holiday and although we were given our wristbands, no one told us how to use these facilitys. Basically, the drinks tended to be table service, though you could go to the bar if you chose to and the food self service. Would have liked to know the protocol on check in really but not really a problem. The quality of the food and drinks were excellent.
The bar on the beach was a great bonus. Most local hotels don't have any beach and elsewhere if you go for a wander, you would typically spend 5euro's to sit on a private beach that may not have any facilitys. They also freeze the glass at the beach bar for a nice cold beer which is a great touch. The burger in pita was delicious. The beach is a rocky pebbly (I hate sand so not a problem for me) but you'll not really find a sandy beach in Kos.
On the whole, I would say this is an excellent place to holiday. People did comment, as staying for 4 day does'nt seem to be the norm. But short as our stay was, we still thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Only negative that they really should sort out is the shower next to the beach cafe. Depending on the direction of the wind, you may get sprayed. All this needs is a shield or curtain. Gets quite annoying...
The entertainment was very funny though i'm not sure thats what it was always aiming to be. I honestly don't know how to describe it but I would say that Lord of The Dance is nothing like the origional. No tap shoes and little co-ordination, the animation team look like they love their work though and are very friendly.
Great hotel, holiday, weather and atmosphere. Hardly any kids there but they were certainly welcomed and all staff would make a fuss of them. Our trip was prodominantly older couples but think this may be due to the time of year (end of september) We had a great time and would definatley go back. Great Hol!
