We stayed here for two weeks in August and had a fantastic stay. The hotel is run impeccably and I can't praise the staff highly enough-the management, house keeping, reception and good and beverage teams were brilliant, non of them could be faulted for their hard work, welcoming smiles or chat. They take the effort to know all their guests and their preferences!!!
Food and drink is served throughout the day around the pool and in the beach. Cuvée restaurant serves a fantastic meal, the bar food is also good for something less formal and lighter. The wine was great-we were fortunate to receive a mini wine tasting one night before dinner! Breakfast was good everyday-hot food menu as well as a wide variety of fruit, breads, yoghurt, cake, cereal....
The hotel is spotless-rooms are cleaned twice daily, shower products were lovely and clean towels (for the room and pool) were in abundance.
The spa is good but be warned there is a 15 euro charge to use it each day-this put us off considerably, surely in a spa hotel the use of the spa should be included in the room price? The gym is free for guests, not massive but well laid out and very clean. We had a manicure/pedicure and they were both excellent - the staff in the spa were professional and good company.
Kos town itself is not the most picturesque holiday destination-the hotel is a 30 min walk away and not particularly nice, taxis are a bit of a nightmare to come by and can't be pre booked. The hotel make some good recommendations for where to go for dinner - a good idea to check as there are some dreadful places in Kos town.
It is worth hiring a car for the day and exploring the island-there are prettier beaches further afield. We did the three island boat tour recommended by the hotel with tigaki tours-it was fairly hideous, 91 people on a boat being choked by diesel and eating over cooked pork kebabs that had been cooked early that morning and wrapped in tin foil to keep them warm for lunch. I'd personally avoid this.
All in all though a fantastic hotel with excellent staff and service who made our stay hugely enjoyable-a big thank you to them all!
