We really love this place. First time here for us, for 8 days. Very nice staff. Super clean, big rooms and also big bathroom. Nice entertainment, we have been there every night. Coffeemaker and coffee tea and water in the room. Every day cleaning. Golf cars to bring you everywhere on the property. 2 restaurants for dinner, and also an a la carte restaurant. Beautiful beaches everywhere, and a nice town only 10 minutes walking. Most important, good beds! We will be back!

We only stayed one night as we arrived late at night and moved on to our main hotel as planned the next day. Initial impressions are good. The reception area is in a very impressive-looking building which also houses the main restaurant and breakfast area. The guy behind the desk seemed to know we were due, despite our flight being delayed 3 hours. The hotel had arranged a packed sandwich and apple for us which was a nice gesture. Asked if we could get a drink from a bar but was informed that nothing was available at that time. It was around midnight but surely a place describing itself as 5 star can supply a beer at any time of day if the guests are ‘all-inclusive’? The receptionist arranged a golf buggy to take us down to our room. The hotel is on a steep hillside with the main building at the top and the rooms arranged bungalow-style down to the shoreline. We had a family room which was plenty spacious. Two separate bedrooms with a bathroom in the middle. The room itself was very clean but the furniture itself was pretty cheap-looking. Certainly not 5 star by most objective measures. Breakfast was in the main building. Standard buffet type but the machine coffee was bad. The fruit etc was good but the hot food was only so-so. Don’t know if it was the decor of the room itself but somehow it was a pretty joyless experience. Didn’t get to use the pools before heading off but they looked nice enough. In summary, this hotel appears to be giving promises it can’t deliver but I can’t complain too much given the reasonable price we paid. It’s probably a decent-enough place but don’t expect a 5 star hotel, despite being advertised as one.

We arrived at this hotel after chaos at Kos airport waiting almost 2 hours for suitcases, check in was quick and easy and we were provided with a picnic box since we arrived so late, we opted for the All inclusive plus black bands, during the whole stay it seemed like we were the only black bands on site. My fiancé has mobility issues and are allocated room wasn't suitable so we were transferred to another room close to the main restaurant with a gorgeous sea view. Due to his mobility issues we were frequent users of the golf buggies huge thank you to Yannis who was our wonderfully polite, and thoroughly entertaining driver. Yannis is such an asset to the hotel. Adonis was also a very kind, and polite staff member. Jerry was fantastic on the entertainment team, my finance loved the daily Darts! We only saw one night time entertainment and it was wonderful. World class dancing, cant recommend it enough. The food was great, always something to try. Breakfast was my favorite meal by far. The Al la Cart was very nice, we had just got engaged the night before and we had champagne and sparkles it was a night I will never forget. I enjoyed two spa treatments which were amazing, little trip all inclusive plus gets a full body massage treat of 45 mins not just the 15 minute complimentary spa treatment. The rooms were cleaned and large, and mini bar stocked daily. Kardamena was only 15 minute walk along the beach, we enjoyed eating out here too. All in all this hotel was beautiful, caring and kind staff and I would say totally earned its 5 stars. Thank you for a great holiday

Arrived mid morning to lovely sunshine ... transfer to hotel only 15 mins from airport. On arrival greeted by nice staff and told to go and get lunch while room being finished off . There’s 3 restaurants to choose from. 2 buffet style and one a la cart pay . Food all week very good .. drinks good ... room small walk away from main block . The room is very spacious with tv, air con etc etc . All water on site is all softened so no carrying bottles around which is a big plus. There are 4 swimming pools and plenty of sun beds . Beach is poor but that’s nature . To sum up a fabulous hotel built in 2015 , good food and drink and great staff always willing to greet and serve you whenever you want ... shame we have to go home !

We’ve stayed at this exceptional hotel for a week in September. The hotel and grounds are kept spotless. The room we stayed in was large, modern, very clean with a great view. The pool areas were kept very clean. There was a great selection of good food every meal time and the restaurants are very clean. Drinks are good. We would definitely return to this hotel.
