“Gaia Garden Hotel, Lambi.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

We stayed at the Gaia Gardens for two nights. It is a small hotel but the use of space makes it appear much larger. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained with lots of "hidden away" seating areas - in the sun and the shade. The restaurant is upstairs and guests can choose to sit inside or outside where there is a nice view of the pool. The food was very varied and of an excellent standard. Our room was very clean, well equipped, and the decor was very homely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will hopefully be returning again next year.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We stayed in August for a friends wedding.
The bar and pool area are nice and well kept, the food frequently luke warm and repetitive, and all inclusive drinks a joke! (Wine, beer, ouzo or brandy only)
I would describe this as a basic facility with very tired rooms, (our toilet was repaired with duct tape and a socket fell of the wall exposing live wires in the shower, which was repaired quickly) situated in a run down area of town the walk to the beach is a bit grim.
Having said this the lady on reception was fantastic and so helpful and it was nice to receive some food when arriving late a night.
I would suggest going in to town for an evening meal as there is some lovely traditional restaurants all reasonably priced and the town has a beautiful ambience in the evening.
Would we return? No a bit too basic and tired for the money you pay.

Stayed August 2013, traveled with friends

Nice ambience,nice pool, good location (rent a bike, few minutes cycling to beach/city center), good breakfast (we didn't had diner, we prefered to have diner in the city center, very nice restaurants).
Only bad thing of this hotel was the bathroom, temperature of the shower was not always hot. Furthermore very good hotel!

Our 1st time to Kos and stayed in Gaia Gardens due to good reviews, location and price (we were not disappointed). On booking, I had requested 2 rooms beside each other, near pool and this is exactly what was provided. The accommodation is very clean and comfortable. We stayed All Inclusive and the food was very tasty with several choices provided. We checked in 5 minutes before evening dinner finished, so we were told to leave bags at reception and go on up to 1st floor to get food before they finished (they also offered us a cold plate to be delivered to us if we preferred - nice start, thanks).

As previously stated the choice of AI drinks is very limited, however we still availed :)!!

You can hire towels from reception for use around the pool. There is a shower room provided for those on a late checkout.

We enjoyed our stay and will be happy to recommend to others

All the right things were there for an excellent but for one thing. All inclusive local drinks wine, small beer,ozzo or local brandy. A vodka and coke or gin and tonic around 4-4.50 euro. This also applies after 11pm. If you want a chat and a drink with friends buy at the local supermarket and sit outside of the room not only will you save money but you will be able to hear. There is only one bar an 9pm onwards is loud.
