“It was very family friendly”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

The hotel was a family hotel so don't let the tour guide lead you on. It really is filled with children. Even tough it is not yet the summer season. We did not expect this. But besides this, the service was very good. Tables were cleaned very quickly and they had enough equipment so every child could be seated at the table with a child seat.
Rooms were very large and cleaned every day. We really can not complain. The last day we had even the opportunity to keep our room longer as we had a late flight. Off course we had to pay a bit extra. The food was't a suprise, every day more or less the same food even tough the buffet was very big. What I missed a bit where the typical greek dishes. So we went a few times out to dinner even tough we had paid for an all in.

stayed for 1 week from 27th may with my sister, lovley hotel with stunning views, rooms are really big with lots of storage, very clean too, beds are hard so was bit stiff on a morning. staff very friendly & happy to help. charlotte the rep is very young but she was lovley & cheerfull & allways had time for a natter.
the meals were average, not a big selection but i still managed to eat loads, would worry in peak season how they would manage tho.
not much for children or teenagers to do, their is a kids club & lovley big pools & slides but thats it, the daily activities were boring i thought, saying that the annimation team were lovley & allways did their best to get you motivated !
the hotel is situated at high level & our room was at top, wasnt so bad for 1st few days but then felt like walking mount everest,
the hotel could have been made better if you could use the sister hotel bars on an evening as this hotel only had 1 bar open due to fact that the entertainment area wasnt open untill we left which was a shame cos we was at same bar all night unless we ventured to kos town or paid for drinks in other hotel. 1 thing you must try is theroof bar on top of the panorama hotel, you have to pay for drinks but its very trendy & the view is amazing !
i thought the evening entertainment was crap ! i made most of karaoke night ! only feel like this as i said the main entertainment area wasnt in use, for what reason i dont know.... so they only had a space of say 12X12ft to use, but if going in peak season it should be better.
the brochure says shingle beach...more like boulders & could be dangerous, the sand was very dark pebbly & looked dirty allthough the sea was clear & beautifull & you got free sunbeds/brolly
i do feel that we most likely had the the best hotel in the resort but wouldnt go back again
All in all we had a lovley weeks relaxing holliday,

Just returned from a weeks holiday and we enjoyed our stay. The only complaint is that the large apartments are up a very steep hill so you would think twice about going back to your room as it was hard work walking up the hill, unless you are very fit. We went with Thomas Cook but would not travel again with them the reps are far too young and not much help if you have any problems. Would return to Kos again but not this area as the beach is not very sandy and in the sea it is full of pebbles and not very safe. Okay for a cheap family holiday as long as your expectations are not too high.

Room Tip: Near the pool as no hill to climb

Two adults and a three year old in our group, and we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Plenty of choice for every meal in a nice dining area. Room was spacious and clean, with a beautiful sea view.
Entertainment team were great with our daughter, though the adult entertainment after was a bit flat (as we waited to leave, a karaoke night seemed to be going well though)
Nice day trip into Kos Town, and a Greek night in the sister hotel was good (but busy).
Would definitely recommend and may even return one day.

this hotel should not be 4 star rated, we were all inclusive but the rooms were self catering apartments. we were unable to sleep much on thefirst night as the main air conditioning unit for the block of rooms was next to us and was very noisey. we complained and were moved next day. the beds were hard and uncomfortable. to get to and from our room we had to walk up and down a steep hill. the staff were friendly and helpful. the food was good. the pools were cold. the entertainment was disapointing.overall we were not impressed with the hotel

We lost our first holiday that we had booked along side a large group of family members when Kiss flights collapsed. We then got a good deal for Iberostar Panorama Family. I read lots of reviews and had mixed feelings about what to expect. I needednt of been worried. We arrived with excellent reception service and given a very good room (Although up a small steep hill) it was worth it for the amazing views we had. Food was excellent and all staff were very friendley. Me and my partner have very busy careers and we really needed a relaxing break. We got just that. There are two pools, the far pool was a little higher around the corner which had a great breeze in the very high tempretures. My only critersizm was the evening entertainment, there was none and we could get quite bored. We did venture out to Kos Town were our family was staying and was very impressed. It was so pretty especially the old town and the harber. It was very expensive at some bars and made us very gratefull to be all inclusive. We had an excellent boat trip on the Katerina Boat trip which was the high light of all our holidays. Three times a week you can book into the very lush hotel down stairs. This was an excellent ecperiance and an excellent hotel. I would deffenetley return to this hotel.

First of all let me start off by saying that if you are planning on going on a Thomas Cook package holiday then dont bother, you will be much better booking seperatly. Our "rep", Jenny never came up to our hotel, she was down at the Panorama Suites down the hill and all she did was moan about her work load, care? We saw here twice in the 14 nights we stayed there and once was on the airport transfer bus as we returned home. We had a small delay of one hour leaving the UK meaning we didn't arrive at the hotel until 03:00 and after filling in the forms didn't get to our room until 03:45. As it was dark we weren't aware of the spectacular view we had. We were in room 921 on the corner which meant we had an extended room with two bedrooms and a view of the pool, the sea and Turgetries in Turkey. We could also see Bodrum. Temperatures were very warm, 25 degrees when we landed at 01:40 and 42-45 degrees throughout the day. The restaurant food was the best we have ever had when travelling abroad. It may seem repetitive but that is only because of the vast amount of food served. The staff work very had (special mention to Panos/Astrahan and Khan on the bar staff who made us feel very at home with them) and are always willing to stand and chat with you. The animation team of Dimitar, Gabor, Sandra, Charlie, Kristal, Lisa and Vicky were amazing. Whilst we were there Charlie arrived knew after someone called Aki had left, never really knew her. OK, the shows were not the quality that you would find in the likes of Spain and fantastic hotels but you wont find the dedication to the job as much as the animation team had at that hotel. When the show finished at about 22:30 the animation would come and chat at the bar with you until around midnight when they had to leave. The pool which we overlooked (near the restaurant) was filthy and you couldnt even see the bottom when you were swimming underwater. The waterslides were fast and fun although the lifeguard tried his best to ruin that. Would recommend the Greek Night trip to anyone and the Agean Cruise. Anyone reading this if you take a trip on the Greek Night and Agean Cruise and meet a rep called Suzanna/e she is by far the most friendly and personal to the passenger rep you will find. The maid was one of the best we have ever had. That's about it, another small delay on the way back of an hour and a half but none of the delays have affected the review. So, go to this hotel if you are a people person looking to meet new kinds of people, a fantastic animation team who leave e-mails, skype and facebook to anyone who they speak to. And, if you dont like other nationalities, this hotel is about 70% British and the other nationalities are Belgium, Dutch, Polish, German and Russian. Yamas!
