The hotel is about a 25 minute walk along the main road to the Harbour Area passing some interesting shops and bars on the way, in the baking heat it may be a bit much but it was about 30 degrees when we went and it was a comfortable walk in the morning and again on our return in the evening.
The hotel lobby is very clean and spacious and the reception staff were friendly enough.
We went to our room in the main part of the hotel as there are some seperate blocks around the hotel grounds surrounding the pool. The room was clean and spacious, we had 2 single beds and also a third fold out bed which we had to ask for a mattress topper as it was a little uncomfortable for an adult to sleep on but may be ok for a child.
We had a balcony with views of the mountains, there was a fridge in the room large enough to hold a few bottles of water and supplies.
We went All Inclusive and the selection of drinks was fairly good in the pool bar. There was always a good selection of food at meal times and was of a good quality and taste. We never had any trouble in getting a table as they were constantly being cleared away. There was limited seating outside the restaurant during the evening meal time.
There was entertainment in the evening but we felt it started a bit late, 10pm and was finished by 11pm, having had dinner by 9pm which was the time the restaurant closes it seemed a long wait for the fun to begin and it was soon over. They had a Mr & Mrs type contest which was funny and also a Miss Apollon contest.
The pool was cool but bearable and is a decent size and depth. There were Aqua Aerobics and Pilates classes and music playing around the pool.
The beach was only about 10 minutes away with various watersports available which I tried, such as Jet Skis, Parascending and Sofa Rides. There are plenty of Sunbeds available, some are FREE, try Papas restaurant and Watersports, they are really friendly!!
We even had a daytrip to Bodrum in Turkey on the Hydrofoil which is a 20 min crossing and costs 20 Euros Return. There are also boat trips around the islands available in the port.
We would love to return back to to Kos and would certainly consider staying here again. I found the best price was on Booking.Com.
