Hotel –lovely boutique hotel on the corner of the island about 30 minutes by taxi from the airport. On arrival to the hotel we were greeted and offered any drink off the menu whilst they checked us in. I had told them in advance that my wife & I were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and they left some fruit & a bottle of chilled white wine for us in the room.
We were on the 4th floor, and luckily had the sea-facing rooms. The rooms was a decent size, with a nice balcony to admire the views.
Nice pool with plenty of loungers, 40 metres from the pool area to the beach. There are loungers & towels for hotel guests in their designated beach area.
Restaurant – nice setting with sunset views over the water, menu limited as haute cuisine but the hotel have Greek tasting menu on Wednesdays after ‘meet the staff & free cocktail’ around the pool. They have Greek tapas on Friday nights & BBQ on Sunday nights to add variety. The breakfast has continental options on the counters and you can order pancakes, omelettes, fried or scrambled eggs from the menu. The lunch menu is a little limited and we popped across the road to the Akrotiri lounge and beach bar for more lunch options.
The overall service in the hotel was excellent. The staff were attentive and friendly, from reception to waiters to the manager. They were helpful in giving directions, maps & bus timetables to Kos. Kos town is a 10 minute bus ride in number 2 or 4 bus and costs €1.20. There is a general store 2 minutes walk from the front of the hotel for sunscreen, toiletries, beach games, souvenirs, drinks, snacks, ice-cream and alcoholic drinks.
Spa – daily spa offers. We booked the hot stone massage for 2.
