We stayed at the Platanista between 19th September and the 3rd of October 2012.
Although the approach to the hotel didn't seem very promising, the appearance was a very pleasant surprise!
Check in was fast and efficient but we waited a long time for a porter to take us to our room.
Our bedroom (superior double) was well furnished and thoroughly cleaned every day. The view from the balcony was of the mountains to the left and the Aegean and Turkish coast to the right.
All restaurant meals were varied and of very high quality. The moussaka was the best we've ever tasted!
The poolside snack bar provided a wide variety of light meals at reasonable prices.
The grounds and both pool areas were very spacious with a plentyful supply of sun loungers and parasols.
All the hotel staff were very helpful, friendly and efficient.
The location of the hotel allows for easy access to Kos town. 25 minutes on foot or 5 minutes by a regular bus service.
The only two negatives were:
* very poor entertainment
* animation team very unprofessional and lacked personal skills.
Overall holiday experience was excellent and we will certainly return to this hotel.
