“Perfect holiday”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

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.

I'm laying in bed in a family room at the far end of the hotel using the FREE WI-FI which is super fast. writing this, I read so many bad reviews about this place before I left after I booked and I must say "they are all wrong". Not what I was expecting, I read food was bad, not to my pallet it wasn't. Possibly to some repetitive, but remember it's a 3 star hotel. Every meal time cooked to perfection and the staff who could not do enough to help did not Nag you but asked politely if you had finished to clear away your plates. The rooms "we had a family room" which was big enough to stay in without being under each others feet and cleaned by the amazing House keeping staff daily to a very high standard. The pool is perfect for little ones, my children aged 15, 6 and 2 loved the pool. A small area for my 2 year old was deep enough to be shallow and shallow enough to be deep. The deep end is perfect to dive in to at 3m. The Bar is the hub of the hotel all inclusive drinks are suffice and if you NEED more you can pay for extra choice. But the only problem I can find is the shower cubicle is a Tad small. But you can shower and be clean. Katerina was amazing fell in love with my youngest son at the time he was 2 blonde and Blue eyes. But all the staff made you feel relaxed and totally at home. My opinion. PERFECT

Highlights: good service, nice big clean rooms with a small terrace or balcony, good food, nice garden, family friendly.

This place is run by a sweet Dutch lady moved to Kos 30 years ago. I suspect this hotels' nice garden is somewhat due to Dutch gardening skills and taste. Pool is nice, service is great and this place is suitable for families (for trolleys also includes a playground for kids)

We stayed here as a group of friends in June 2014. Rooms were cleaned everyday and the staff were very friendly. The gardens were very pretty with hammocks to chill out on. Also the tennis courts were free to use and we were provided with equipment for free. Dinner was varied everyday!!!

All in all I was surprised by how good the hotel was and would definitely return :)

I visited Gaia garden with my partner and her 5 year old daughter. We initially looked at the reviews on trip advisor and agreed that this would be a good place for us all to go.

On arrival at the hotel my initial reaction was one of shock as it was a lot bigger than I thought and I truly felt the pictures on the websites didn't do it justice.

We were walked through the lovely verdant grounds to our room. It was quite basic but out if the way and felt like a little appartment. There were 2 single beds pushed together which was a disappointment and another at the foot of the bed and they were a little hard. I spoke the the reception about this and they offered to move us and they put another layer on the mattress to soften it.

The next day we went the breakfast and found a large and assorted variety iof things to eat and the theme continued for every meal. All in all the food was of a good standard, I was never stuck for something tasty and healthy to eat.

The hotel was mostly occupied by German's, Dutch and a few English people. Everybody was very friendly and talkative.

The staff at Gaia Garden were great!!!! Really polite and helpful. They kept the place clean and tidy and assisted where they could.

All in all I have nothing bad to say about this venue. You really can have a relaxing holiday to recharge you batteries and have the kids entertained as well. Although there wasn't a kids club we met couple with kids and they all got along...

If you want a relaxing holiday for all ahe's from children through to pensioners then you couldn't choose a beter place.

Stayed at the Gaia Garden in July with adult children. Minor hiccup when we first arrived with one of our rooms being unavailable due to unforeseen water leakage. This was quickly resolved and apologies given, customer recovery good.
After that we had a super stay, the staff work as a team to provide immaculately clean rooms and public areas, the gardens are stunning and a welcome change from poolside in the heat.
Our son enjoyed the gym and the view from up there!
The bar and waiting staff interacted well with the guests cutting a good balance of friendliness and professionalism, nothing was too much trouble for them.
The food was varied and provided sufficient choice for all our needs, with nice touches such as gyros, pizzas and waffles from time to time. All was fresh and of good quality.
The ladies and gents who run this hotel do a great job.
Would definitely use it again.

We used the bike and car rental across the road very convenient and reasonable too

We only had one night here on our honeymoon and would have lived to stay longer. The daytime front desk manager was lovely. We were treated to a delicious rose in the room and invited to enjoy a plentiful dinner buffet. Highly recommended and only 7 minutes to a beautiful beach. The daytime bartender was super friendly and the room had everything you needed including private balcony. We booked a deluxe room and were happy with the price and accommodation.
