just arrived back from our 1st time at the cosmos maris.george was very helpful and accommodating, as we had e mailed him beforehand to ask for a room on the top floor if possible.we had a lovely room with a massive balcony and we got the sun late in the afternnon room 74. the apartments are probably the nicest ones i have been in, in greece and they are absolutely immaculate, and the cleaning staff work very very hard, so no problems there.also ate a couple of times in the snack bar and the food was lovely, fresh and plentiful the greek salad could have served 4 peoiple and the greek mixed platter was great too. only down side , and this is a personal comment is the location.it,s a good walk into lardos , at least 25 minutes, and to walk to pefkos takes about 45 minutes at least.so unless you want a really relaxing holiday by the pool it,s a bit of an inconvenience.taxi prices vary and we paid 7 euros one way and another time we were quoted 8 also we managed to get one for 5 euros. the local beach is clean enough but quite dangerous as you sink into the pebbles and there is a sheer drop to get in and out of the water, quite dangerous. we walked a couple of times to plakia beach which was quite nice and had a little taverna on the beach with good food. the only drawback is in cosmos maris you are still getting the regulars putting their towels on the sunbeds at the crack of dawn and not actually using them till lunch time at least. this is also unnecessary as there are plenty of beds.the food in poppies by the sunshine hotel is really good and i would recommend it if you only want to walk a short way for dinner. beaujangles in lardos was excellant and a bit different but not the cheapest, but the food makes up for the price, also yamas bar pretty good too. i would recommend the cosmos maris for the apartments, but if you want to wander a bit further even to lardos and pefkos it would be much better with transport as it,s not everybody who wants to wait on buses or walk especially if it,s really hot.

Room Tip: would recommend room 74 as it,s really big and has a fantastic balcony, and because it juts out must...

Our first stay at the Cosmos Maris but definately not our last. Read all the reviews before going and we were not disappointed. George, family and staff work relentlessly, goodness knows when they sleep!! If you want somewhere spotlessly clean, that serves excellent food look no further. Stayed the last two weeks of May had excellent weather. Lardos village very nice, Roulas, Valentinas and Yammas bar all fantastic. Hope to return again soon. Billy the chef! and Sheila.xx

Room Tip: Had upper floor room which was fabulous so no noise from above!!

Just come back from the Cosmos Maris in Lardos - could'nt fault it. Staff work so hard and nothing is too much for them - George is a gem - well done George carry on doing an amazing job. Lovely local beaches if you can find them especially Sady (Sandy) Beach - just follow the sign just outside the village towards Pefkos.Food was good and typically greek in most places - if you want typically English you can have that too - personally we like to eat the local food. Hired a car locally which is a must if you want to get about - but would advise to hire before you go as your probably get a better deal. Beaches to Visit :- Agathi beach ideal for the kids - Tsambika also ideal for the kids - Glystra Beach a bit rocky but clear - and of course Anthony Quinn a Must visit beach - Pefkos is very nice too. Will be back soon defo.

At the risk of repeating other 'trip advisors' comments which we read prior to booking (and on which we based our choice and were not disappointed), this was the perfect holiday! The famous George and family were so very hospitable, kind and gave you no other option than to relax. Nothing was an issue "Don't stress just relax" being George's words and attitude. The rooms were spotless and cleaned every day. The food was tremendous and great value. The whole area was so clean and cheery. Local facilities such as shops and scooter/car hire are close by and have everything you need. There is a very handy bus service although we didn't use this as we hired a scooter. The Cosmos Maris scores in our opinion due to it's location being set back a little from the main street giving a more peaceful 'get away from it all' feel whilst still allowing the option to walk, taxi etc to busy places should you so wish. Recommended wholeheartedly and unreservedly.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a great outlook. Ground floor is great if stairs are a problem, 1st and 2nd floo...

Hubby and I stayed here July 2012. Never been to Rhodes before. What a gem of a place - to sum up - if you want home from home, some where quiet, friendly and relaxing for your holiday you can't go far wrong! Lovely people! So good we've booked to go again in July 2013! So many people we spoke to come back here on holiday!

We spend a lot of time relaxing by the pool, did 2 trips - green Rhodes day trip [excellent trip organised by Thomson -learnt so much about Rhodes from the guide - local guy - he was brilliant and passionate about his country] and Lindos. Going back this year to do more expolring!

We stayed here on holiday in June 2012 and would highly recommend this hotel! George and the rest of the staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms and pool are kept spotlessly clean. The food and cocktails served in the pool bar was delicious and cheap. We had a lovely holiday and hope to come back one day.
