We spent 10 blissful days at Gaia Garden this month and we had a wonderful time. The hotel and grounds are absolutely spotless and the gardens are beautifully kept.
The food was excellent- a mixture of Greek dishes and a brilliant selection of salads, bread and olives every lunch and dinner. The breakfasts included pancakes and chocolate sauce, full English, yogurts and fruits, fresh bread and cereals. A lovely selection of food every mealtime that catered for everyone. I didn't see one fly near the food the whole time we stayed!
The pool was spotless with a good amount of sun beds and shady seating. The waiters and bar staff were friendly and chatty and there was a reasonable selection of drinks on the all inclusive. The local beer and wines were great and the coffee machine and selection of teas available throughout the day were a good addition. The maids were fantastic and did a great job of cleaning the rooms everyday. It was my birthday while we were there and a mini bottle of pink champagne was left in our room which was a nice touch. The air-con was a godsend in the room and the showers were powerful and hot every time.
There was a pool table, tennis courts and table tennis available to play, and a great selection of games and books for guests to use. The volleyball net in the pool and the balls were a great addition and we had a great time playing in the sun. There was also a lovely safe play area for the children and randomly placed large cages containing happy parakeets and budgies which were a lovely touch.
The sangria nights were brill- lovely sangria and platters of fruit and cakes, and the staff entertained us with traditional Greek circle dancing. We watched a couple of World Cup games on a huge projected screen and the atmosphere was brilliant. There wasn't a huge selection of evening entertainment but the bar had such a great atmosphere at night that we enjoyed playing cards and listening to the good selection of music while enjoying a few drinks.
The hotel is in a brilliant location- far enough away from the hustle of kos town and lambi, but near enough to enjoy what was on offer. We hired bikes from the lady across the road and they only cost 3 euros a day. It took about 5 mins to cycle to lambi beach and the nearest supermarket was literally at the top of the road and was great value. Kos town was a 10 minute cycle away on safe cycle lanes and had some great shops and a beautiful harbour. It was located about 20 minutes from the airport which was ideal.
We had a brilliant, relaxing holiday and we would wholeheartedly recommend it. Thank you.
