We spent a very pleasant and relaxing fortnight here, remaining mainly in the generally uncrouded hotel premises. The buffet breakfast and dinner were really good - an occasional dud dish such as tough stewed beef, but alternative choices galore.
The beach just across a road at the far end of the hotel grounds was not very inviting, the sand looked slightly grubby and the sea was opaque, probably with sand stirred up by the winds, when we were there. The wide-ranging and impeccably clean pool areas of the hotel were much more attractive.
There is a useful gym, if you like that sort of thing, but some of the equipment could do with an overhaul.
A car is probably worthwhile. We took a bus from the far end of the hotel grounds to Kos town, but it was crowded by the time it picked us up and we had to stand all the way (about 25 minutes). One visit to town was enough for us.
Getting through the rather primitive Kos airport to catch the plane home was a little troublesome, but we managed it without too great stress.
Despite the possibly discouraging aspects of the above comments, the general excellence of the hotel made for a delightful fortnight overall.
