Visited with a group of friends last week and really enjoyed our stay.
The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable with all the facilities you would expect. Probably could do worth a little spruce up in places at the end of the season. If you are on the first floor over the terrace bar....there is noise but I didn't mind it...some people might though,if you like tranquility ask for higher room away from the bar area. Waking up to the view was terrific and also dinner on the terrace in the evening as the sun was going down was lovely.
The breakfast was good...the cooked bits on the buffet rather less so but good fruit,bread,pasties, yoghurt,cereals cold cuts,cheese and the kitchen would make something fresh to your requirements eg omelette or scrambled eggs if you asked. The food in the restaurant/bar was very good....lots of choice of salads,fish,meat(the steak was particularly good according to several in my party.)
The staff are the real stars of this hotel! The restaurant manager was efficient,friendly and highly competent. I arrived before the rest of my party and so took dinner on the first evening alone...he went out of his way to make me feel comfortable and that was the start of the excellent service we enjoyed throughout our week long stay. The lady who looked after us at breakfast was delightful and really did anticipate our needs before we voiced them! The ladies who cleaned the rooms were friendly and efficient and the staff on reception were all helpful and pleasant.
The position of the hotel in terms of of convenience to the amenities in Kos town was good however Kos town itself is very touristy and there was lots of touting to get people into bars and restaurants....which drives me bonkers! We were only really using the hotel as our base as we had a yacht in the marina which we used to sail and visit nearby islands..I wouldn't have wanted a week in Kos town otherwise definitely! The hotel did have very limited space on its sun deck and in order to secure a little area in which to relax before our sailing we had to stoop to the level of the 'early morning sun lounger bandits' and bag a few for ourselves otherwise we would never have had anywhere to sit......be warned if you intend to spend lots of time relaxing in this way...you will probably have to do this too!
When not eating dinner at the hotel we found the best restaurants were to be found if you turn left out of the hotel entrance towards the marina...no touting here!
All in all great little hotel and a very enjoyable stay.
