Have just returned from a 10 night stay at the Cosmos Maris hotel. I cannot praise the hotel highly enough. I can honestly say that I have never felt so welcome and comfortable at any other hotel that I have ever stayed at. The staff are fantastic, the rooms are basic but impeccably clean, the pool is lovely and sunbeds are plentiful, and the pool bar offers good value for money.
The hotel is in a quiet location but has 2 supermarkets and 4 restaurants in close proximity (pizza place by the bus stop is good...staff can be a bit abrupt but food is nice) and is within walking distance of Pefkos (40mins) and Lardos (20mins). Pefkos is more lively than Lardos and has a beautiful beach. Lardos has a lovely 'vice'; we would definately recommend Roules (esp. for veggies!) and Yamas bar for a lovely night out!
Lindos and Rhodes are worth a visit...the beach at Lindos is fabulous but make sure you wear decent shoes as its a bit hilly! There is a glass bottomed boat that runs from Pefkos beach to Lindos (leave Pefkos at 10am and leave Lindos at 4pm) that is definately worth finding...gives a unique view of the island and lets you swim in the beautiful Med on the way back :D (E14 one way, E18 round trip).
Definately use Georges Cars for car rental...E65 cheaper than the company recommended by rep. We really enjoyed driving around the island for 3 days.
I know that every review says the same thing and that it can be difficult to believe. Trust me...this is a wonderful hotel with fantastic staff and you will have a fabulous holiday if you visit Cosmos Maris.
