Stayed for 1 week at end of september. This was our 2nd visit to the Nicon and i was a bit worried that this time may not be as good as last time....I need not have worried at all.
The rooms are basic but comfortable and clean. Shower was powerful (maybe a bit too powerful as we did soak the bathroom a couple of times!! Ooops!!) and stayed same temperature and although the bathroom was a little small...we could not complain. Rooms have the standard self catering equipment but we didnt use it this time. TV remote, safe and aircon are available for a reasonable deposit.
There was always plenty of sunbeds and they are probably one of the comfiest sunbeds i haveever experienced!! Pool area is immaculately clean, the gardens extremely well kept. Playpark for little ones a bit tired but has good slide, swings and roundabout. Pool table was free....as was table football and darts.
Pool snacks & drinks served from 9am and my kids loved the bacon sarnies by the pool every morning. Milkshakes also divine. Food and drinks very well pricex & served by Costas by day and Nico and Romeo by night. All staff extremely friendly and really make everyone very welcome. Nico even serves food until silly o' clock on the days the new arrivals come.
We really enjoyed the quiz night but Greek night was cancelled due to bereavement.
There are a couple of cats who frequent the hotel but they are clean annd in no way a nuisance.
Locally there is a supermarket across the road aswell as restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Avoid the Mavromatis...poor food and service, Classic Cafe was ok but the Blue Ocean is a must. There are also many restaurants on the 20 minute walk into Kos Town. It is a pleasant walk but the constant 'ding ding' from bicycle bells annoyed us a tad. It did tend to be Europeans on holiday as opposed to the Greek and Brits who used the bells much more freely!!
I loved my time at the Nicon and will most defintely be back...already looking at times and prices for next year :-) :-)
