Lovely hotel, good food, friendly staff, especially the restaurant manager Maria and all the entertainment team, lead by Sorin, was amazing, doing their best to make the guests feel good. We will definitely return to hotel Platanista !
Stunning hotel with lovely staff, food, facilities. The entertainment team headed by Soren and our waitress Laura were the stand out people who we met there. Rooms, pool areas, restaurant all spotless and extremely well kept.
I am really late doing this hotel as we enjoyed it so much i really didnt get the time. Breakfast were really nice,we only had lunch here once as we were out most days but the lunch we had was very good. Evening meals was a buffet but plenty of choice and it was as good as buffet meals go. You have the choice to eat inside as well as outside The hotel was very clean and beds were comfortable. It takes about 40 minutes to walk into Kos town which was a pleasant walk. When we stayed there was not many children but I would not say this was a suitable hotel for children. Staff at the hotel were very nice and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.
Stayed at the platanista hotel gor 10 nights in August as a family of 3. POSITIVES; 2 huge pools good for swimmers! Always sunbeds available so no need to reserve at 5am! Very clean rooms and ours had a jacuzzi bath. Fantastic spa. I had a massage which was AMAZING then booked for in for aanicure & pedicure. Felt sorry for the spa staff as the girl did not have a day off in the 10 days we were staying. We hired mountain bikes for a week from a shop on the main road to kos town ( half a mile from hotel ) 20 euros each and it was a good decent bike. Great fun and much safer than walking into town as sooooo mamy cyclists around! We took our own helmets from the uk as they dont have them in kos. Local herbs and spices/ soaps etc were cheaper to buy in the 2 supermarkets between the hotel and kos town rather than the gift shops in tbe town. We took a local bus to the therma pool ( 10 mins journey) costs a few euros. Gorgeous views but take some old trainers or water shoes to go in the water/pool as very rocky. NEGATIVES; fridge in room is full of mini bar and tempting snacks for our son. Staff would not remove the contents even though we said we wouldnt buy anything. A bottle of water was €2.90 with evening meal. In the supermarket a few minutes walk away it was the same size bottle but 6 bottles for €2.20!!! Drinks at the bar were expensive too.€8.50 for a mojito. We noticed waiters/waitresses had favourite guests whom they greeted and got taken to a table. We got ignored and had to find our own table. During the stay several tables had a *reserved* sign on them. When i queered it and asked how do we reserve a table, maria the head waitress snapped and said its her who decides to reserve them and for large partys only. Fair enough and a good idea but how come small tables with just 4 seats had a reserved sign on?? On our last day, i was sitting chilling on the sunbed whilst my husband played in the pool with my son. An entertainmemt staff member came over and introduced himself as sorin amd plonked himself down sitting on my beach towel next to me.... abit forward i thought as ive not spoken to him before! Anyhow he started talking and asked when do i go home. I told him that evening. He then asked if i would write a review on TripAdvisor. I said yes of course i will as i read reviews myself so it's only fair i write reviews in return to help other holiday makers. He then said would i mention his name in the review and say the entertainment staff were very good and the best. He went on to ask if i would write a review that afternoon before we left the hotel and to ask my husband to write a review mentioning his name also!!! I was totally shocked. This gentleman hadnt spoken to us the whole 10 days and then the day we were going home, he wants me to say how good he is. Funilly enough sorin has ALOT of positive reviews and im wondering if hes asked other holiday makers to do the same. We've stayed at several tui plantinum hotels but i dont feel this is a platinum. Its more like a 3*+.…
