My husbond and 7 month old daughter stayed one week in Gaia Garden in a deluxe room with free laptop and wireless internet plus breakfast. Booked online with hotel the night before arrival. No problems at all.
Pros: The room was adequate in size, the bed quite comfortable, and a bathtub was a perfect 'pool' for our daughter as the swimming pool was a bit too chilly for our daughter. All rooms (bungalow style attached to each ohter) has a porch where you can sit. Really great!!! We had a room at floor level (rooms are on two 'floors') with direct acces to the garden. Perfect for us as we could put a blanket on the grass for our daughter to lie on.Located on a quiet street with no traffic. Car/moto/bike rent just across the street. Beautiful setting in a wonderfull garden with plenty of palms, trees, flowers etc. Plenty of shade trhoughout the day. Great pool area with enough sun beds for everyone. Pool 3 meters deep at one end so you can take a head plunge. Lille children's pool as well attached to the main pool. Bar open all day. All inclusive can be bought for the small amount of an extra 8 EUR per person/day. Front desk very firendly, spoke Dutch/German/Greek/English. Provided baby bed (app 60 cm * 130 cm) and plenty of great high chairs at restaurant.
Cons: Gaia is a charter option for Dutch and German companies, so expect almost only Dutch and German guests. Only few independent travellers like us. Lively bar at night, so if you have a bungalow close to beach area expect some music. However, you can ask them to turn it down and they will do so - no worries. Food very bland and with very little taste, seems they cater too much to the tourist pallate, so don't expect to taste traditional Greek food here. Nice salad bar with ripe and tasty tomatoes, onions, olives fetta cheese etc, som a Greek salad is always an option. However, many options, so fussy eaters or kids would always find something for their taste buds.
Lampi area: Lampi beach 10 minutes walk away with clear and deep water, great views of Kos and the surrounding islands. Plenty of sun chairs to rent and many restaurants at beach front. Small taverna 'tsambala' 2 minutes walk from Gaia. Very friendly owner and good food - we ate there only once, but it was nice. Mini market 2 minutes walk away - opposite direction as the beach.
Overall very nice vacation!
