We stayed at this hotel for a week at the end of September 2011.
The hotel and grounds were lovely and couldn't say a bad word about it. There were loads of pools and a small waterpark, at that time of year you could almost have a pool to yourself. Every room has a lovely view too.
Make sure you pack aftersun before you go as we burnt quite bad and it was 20 euro's in the hotel shop!!
The food was good, a bit repetative but what you'd expect. The choice of alcohol was a bit limited if you don't like beer or ouzo and comes in very small plastic cups. There was some bowls of cocktail you could help yourself to but it was a bit too sickly to drink much.
The hotel was quite far from town but there was a bus right in front which was quite cheap and there some nice bars in town. The last bus back is around 10. Kos town is not very big, you could see most of it in a day or two and the beaches arent great. There is also a free bus from the hotel, unfortunately we weren't around a the right time to use this, according to other guests it took you to the hotels own beach - around 10 mins walk to the town.
I reccommend catching the boat to Bodrum for the day, it's not too expensive and great for shopping but be careful, if you buy anything cheap in Turkey (cigarettes, alcohol etc) they make you pay the tax on it when you get back to Kos and noone will tell you this! It says on the signs you can get one pack of cigarettes (This means a 20-pack of cigarettes, not 200 cigarettes) - They fined me 30 Euros for the pleasure back at the Kos boat port. The cigarettes were sold to me in the port in Bodrum - Bear in mind the port only has trips back to Kos!! - Think they might have known what they were doing :-/
To sum up, the hotel itself is lovely (probably the nicest in the area) but not in a great place.
