We have just got back from 2 weeks at this fantastic hotel, although they were coming to the end of their season, what first struck us about this place was the general friendliness of the staff and the willingness to help us with anything we needed, no problem was too big or two small, and it was always sorted with a smile...although us ourselves didnt have any problems we observed this with other guests...the front desk staff (namely Sofia) was extremely happy to explain things to us on our late arrival at the hotel, making sure we got some food before we did anything else, as the kitchen staff we setting up to close...at all times the desk staff were extremely courteous and friendly, always willing to have a chat and let us know about the local area, although we were happy to explore ourselves...the bar staff are amazing, especially Dennis and Mike, who were ALWAYS pleasant and friendly, and most definitely up for a laugh....the bar is well stocked with local and international drinks and in our opinion not that expensive considering UK prices of alcohol in bars these days...the serving staff in the restaurant were lovely, especially the little blonde serving manager (sorry that we didnt get her name) who was willing to explain what certain foods were if we did not know, if you dont have anything to eat in the Restaurant you MUST try the desserts, they were a sight to be seen! always well stocked and YUM!! lol

The hotel its self was ALWAYS clean, with the rooms being cleaned daily, unless you put the 'Do Not Disturb' sign up, the other general areas of the hotel were also cleaned daily, the pool bar had a varied menu if you didnt feel like leaving the hotel to go find a Taverna, the food in the restaurant, although was quite samey most nights was plentiful and really nice to eat...there were things like chips and nuggets for children and of course ice cream and desserts...

We really only had two gripes about the hotel, and that was the doors to the rooms slammed when shutting and was echoey through out the hotel, so they do need updating, but after a few nights we got used to this, and also if you want to have the mini bar emptied they would charge 3 euros per day to keep it empty, although they did NOT charge you for putting your own stuff around what was already in there, other than that the balconies where lovely if you wanted an even drink...

The walk into town is really lovely and only takes about 20mins at a slow stroll along the harbour coast...but 5 mins by cab if you can not manage that which costs about 5-6 euros depending on who picks you up...

Room Tip: Ask for a garden/sea view facing room so that you wont get disturbed by coaches coming in at all hours...i also imagine having a room above the bar if you are a early sleeper would be noisy as they shut the bar between 12.30pm and 2am, depending on who is in the bar and what entertainment had been on...but the bar shuts no later than 2am

Our holiday in September is just for my husband and myself. This hotel is very clean and linen and towels were changed regularly. The staff were very friendly and did a good job. Irene at reception is a legend and loves giving out information.The salad station was very good but the main courses on a lot of nights we thought was just ok.We always could find something to eat. The breakfasts were good but the plates were the size of tea plates for this meal. Guests with children had more difficulty as there was only one evening we saw child friendly food although there were chips every night and someone should really tell them how to make mashed potatoes, theirs had never seen a potato, it was SMASH and very watered down. Drinks were very expensive and their spirits were the local spirits but just round the corner was a taverna who served international spirits cheaper than the hotel. Wine for dinner was 19 euros a bottle and the small bottle giving 2 good size glasses was 7.50 euro very expensive. Would have preferred more going on round the hotel i.e. shops markets bars, but it was really out on a limb. There was a sign on the road inviting people to come in and use the pool and one day my husband was in the pool and talking to a chap from New Zealand who was staying in some apartments down the road who told him he had been on the beach and had come in to wash the sand off in the pool NICE. As there was so little to do apart from walking into Kos we hired a car and found Zia which is a lovely place to visit just don't go on the scenic route. For younger people hiring a bike was about 20 euros for the week and they had a wide pink cycling lane on the pavement and woe betide you if you strayed onto this but if you had children it was very safe for them as there was the cycling lane then the pedestrians and then the road. All in all this is a holiday for lazing on the beach just not the beach across from the hotel. Not enough to do for me but hey thanks to the staff for the work they do.

Room Tip: Rooms at the side are much quieter than the rooms facing the bar area

great hotel, great staff, great unlabeled food, really clean, nice pool area.
Awful beach, forget it, visit Paradise/ bubble beach for a fantastic beach, entertainment ok, but not much for teenagers, long walk at night on main road to get back from nightclubs.

Room Tip: rooms at side of hotel nice and quiet,avoid rooms near lifts

I felt that i must comment on this lovely hotel.My husband and myself have just come back from the continental in kos.We received a very warm welcome and were told that we could ask anything at any time the staff on reception were lovely.Our bedroom was very clean and we were welcomed with a bowl of fruit and a welcome card.The bar staff were helpful and couldnt do enough to help.The waiters were respectful and friendly at all times.The restaurant manager was lovely always greeted people and worked hard.We were there for a week and he was on duty every day.We found the food to be excellent the only criticism was that things were not labelled and i did not know what a lot of the things were especially the meats.We were very impressed with this hotel it almost felt as if the staff were family.The entertainment was spot on and the staff really worked hard it was much appreciated.We will definately visit again i think the hotel is first class.A member of staff even waived us off when we left by coach and that bottle of wine the night before we left was a lovely touch.Very well done.

Room Tip: would ask for a room not too near the lift

from the welcoming reception staff irene and all .
to the many and varied food for breakfast .eggs and bacon .omelets.,and contenental,,
and dinner excellent,catering for all nationalitys,
the greek dishes and english food well prepared and delicious.
the hotel was clean ,and spot less,
we did change our room we had a room with a sea view at first,which was fine,
,but it was over the entertainment .. outside,area
,so it was noisy at night,
but we asked for a change of room,we were changed no problem
as my husband needed,a quieter room.. we got a back view room but it was lovely and peacefull,cannot praise this hotel ,more
well done c p hotel,and jet two for having it on their web site.

Room Tip: if you do not mind a noisy room,overlooking the patio entertainment area, then it is fine ,if not they will change your room, enjoy,,,,,,
