5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

AquaBlu is certainly one of the very rare hotels which surpass the quality standard what might have been expected on booking..
An amazing staff-level is a real treat during the full stay. Ambiance, location, luxury and cuisine... Need I say more. We'll be back for sure.

Stayed for 15 days in this exquisite hotel and loved every minute of it !
On arrival we were greeted bij lovely Nadya who gave us a tour of all the amenities of AquaBlu .During our welcome drink( any drink you want ! ) we got another welcome from another beautful lady ,Maria Strati ,the manager of AB with whom we had a lovely chat .
The hotel itself is squeeky clean and very very peaceful ;the spacious rooms apparently have very thick walls ,because we never heard anything going on in neighbouring rooms : no shower or toilet noises ..truly amazing ! Perfect and huge bed , a very quiet airconditioning and a wonderful bath/shower.
Good closet space and make up room with lots of mirrors for my wife complete the picture .
Best breakfast we ever had when visiting any part of Greece and also served by a very able crew of people ;outstanding work by a very sociable Dimitris and the lovely Ada from Albania !
Always extremely helpful were the people at the reception who taught me some very useful Greek words ;Efcharisto poli fili mou !
This is an extremely high quality hotel and we will recommend AquaBlu to anyone !
Thanks to all the staff and Maria for making our stay an unforgettable one !
Lots of love from Hans and Anita from Holland !

Me and my wife spend 1 week at Aqua Blue in the end of June 2013.
A very quiet and relaxing place to stay at for couples.
Friendly staff that offered a high end service.
Nice pool area with "pool boy" from whom you could order soft drinks, coctails, coffee, snacks and simpler food from the bar.
Free pool towels also for use at the beach where the hotel offered free sun beds with same service as at the pool.
Great breakfast buffet that could be enjoyed outdoors at the wooden deck with a sea view.
Two minuses:
1). There was an construction area near to the hotel which partly destroyed the nice sea view from our balcony.
2). It would be great if the hotel could offer their guests a fridge for use of private water and soft drinks. There is a minibar at the room filled up with a big variety of beverages but no space for private use.
Not the cheapest choice of hotel but certainly one of the nicest at Kos! Highly recommended!

Room Tip: To get the best sea view, be sure that you get a room on the higher floor!

Dear Guest,
Thank you very much for your kind review regarding your stay in Aqua Blu this June. We are very pleased to know you had and enjoyable and relaxing holiday experience with us.
About the negative points, the construction of a new hotel unfortunately is something we cannot prevent. This is about to become a new boutique hotel and it will actually be pleasant soon to have another nice hotel close by to look at instead of the old building it used to be until now!
About the minibar, if you had requested our front desk, we would have emptied it and leave it for your private use.
Thank you once again for taking the time to share your experience on trip advisor and hope we get the chance to welcome you back sometime in the near future.
Best Regards, Maria Strati, Hotel Manager

Having stayed in this hotel in June we were so impressed with everything about it that we returned for another week in mid-September. Again this hotel lived up to its reputation in every way - wonderful staff, stylish rooms, fantastic food, delightful grounds and great pool. When we asked if we could see the penthouse suite (known as The Loft) Maria, the manager not only let us see it but arranged for us to stay in it for the last three nights of our holiday; we were not disappointed - fantastic space!

The attention to detail shows throughout this hotel and it is a testament to Maria that ALL the staff have been so well trained - unfailingly charming, polite and attentive.

The cocktail evening each week is a great idea to help guests to relax and get to know the staff and each other and the themed nights in the restaurant are also a great success.

We hope to be back next year!!

After some years staying in ***** hotels around the world during our vacation we (my wife and me) decided to write our first review. Why - because of this amazing stay at the Aqua Blu Boutique Hotel & Spa! After 18 dates and nights without leaving the hotel we know everyone and every detail of the hotel, the pool, the Spa and the gourmet restaurant CUVeE!

There are a lot of reviews for this hotel available where all the details of the hotel, the beach, the rooms and the restaurants were described. We want to share the crucial reasons why we strictly recommend this hotel and the restaurant. The main reason are the remarkable people managing or working in this hotel: friendly, respectful, with humor, responsive, taking feedback seriously, attentive and they are a team! It would be unfair to mention one of them (we still stay in contact with some of them) but Maria who is managing the hotel and the team: thanks Maria!
And there is one other main reason – the gourmet restaurant CUVeE. After 18 days having lunch every day (at least my wife) and dinner every night we tasted every starter, main course and some of the desserts (I had Choco-lovers nearly daily) and these were really meals you expect in a *Michelin restaurant. To give you’re an idea how good the meals are: in total my wife and I gain some weight (5 kg together) during our stay :-).

Most of the other couples we met were repeater and my wife and I decided to be back at the lovely Aqua Blu next year May – will celebrate our anniversary in this hotel, with these persons and having dinner in the CUVeE restaurant!

P.S. for smokers: some restaurant tables are outside and smoking is allowed.
