We got back from Alice Springs very early this morning and i am already missing the reliable hot weather! Starting with the rooms, they are incredibly spacious with plenty of room and the balcony is also a very good size. However some of the balconiess aren't very private but we didn't spend much time on it anyway. The shower is also very impressive, you could probably fit two people in it but the only bad thing about it is that it sometimes leaks. The beds are quite comfy, there is only one double bed in a suite and then there is a sofa bed in the living area with a pull out mattress underneath. It is very hot at night if you don't have air con but after a couple of days we got used to the heat. The pool area is very nice and at the start of the holiday we found it impossible to get a sunbed round the pool as people left their towels on overnight but half way through our holiday a sign was put up telling people to take their towels off at night and not to put them on again until 8am. So just to let you know it is now much easier to get a sunbed! The pool can get quite busy once about half a dozen of people are in it so the best times are probably morning and evening when it is a bit quieter. The hotel is in a lovely location, only a minutes walk down to the beach and perhaps a 15 minute walk to Kos Town. I didn't see any gypsies on the way down to the beach, they must have gone and the lap dancing club has shut down. I didn't see a single cloud whilst in Kos, with the exeption of some in the far distance over the Turkish mainland. Overall, we had a nice stay at Alice Springs and i would definately recommend it for families!
