I stayed in Diamond Delux at the end of April. The hotel is beautiful and modern. The pool is stunning! It is really a well designed place. It's not one of those tacky resorts that is a blot on the landscape. Blends in very well.
Rooms were lovely. White clean and modern. We had a room overlooking the sea with a little seating area. It was lovely in the evenings to sit with a glass of wine looking out at the sea. My only complaint is soundproofing. The walls are paper thin. I could hear most everything going on in the room next door. Thankfully the family with the baby left shortly after we arrived!
The staff are all very good, very friendly and helpful.
Beach is okay. There's a bit of seaweed and stones on the beach, but once you get into the water it's great. Beautiful blue and sandy. And the water was warmer than the pool (pool was freezing!) I preferred to sit out on the beach as there' s a lovely breeze.
Location is rather isolated. Nothing nearby. It really is essential to rent a bike. Thankfully, it's very cheap to do so. It is very easy to bike into Kos Town (a very long walk) and there are plenty of bike racks in town. The island is very cycle friendly, drivers are very bike aware.
One or two complaints:
Drinks - water was only included with breakfast and you had to pay for bottled water for the other meals. Found this rather poor really. Alchohol drinks are silly. It's all local stuff but priced as if you're in a London club.
Wifi - only in the bar/reception area and slowed down dramatically if there was more than one person on it. There was internet in the rooms via a computer connected to the telly but this too was super slow. It's new hotel, thought this would be better.
