This was our first visit to an IKOS resort and we were incredibly impressed. The hotel has stunning views from almost all locations, amazing service and very well designed buildings. We were worried about the all-inclusive concept as we were concerned that this would mean corners would be cut on food and beverage quality, furnishings, design, build quality etc. However, we were proven wrong on all accounts and are now IKOS converts! There is a feeling of luxury in every part of the hotel - the bedrooms are very spacious and well appointed, the beds are comfortable (we had extra toppers), the lobby is beautiful as are all the restaurants.

We have two children and the resort is ideal for kids. Decent kids club space, lots of food options and pools for them and genuine interest from the staff. Ikos Aria have clearly put a lot of thought into making the resort child friendly by providing practical things aimed at families such as heated pools, children’s cutlery, baby sitting services (provided by the kids club staff so you know exactly who they are), kids bikes to hire (including little trikes)... the list could go on.

All the staff are exceptional and authentic. A particularly special mention to Michael (Deluxe Collection Manager) who looked after us during our stay. Nothing was too much for him and he was available 24-7...a real workaholic who genuinely loves his job and seeing his guests happy. Thank-you Michael. Other special mentions to Yiannis, Aggie and Georgie in Ouzo (the most beautiful beachfront destination), Miltos in Kos, Markela in Seasons and Zach and Emily in the sports centre. Thanks everyone for an amazing holiday!

The (genuine) level of service and standards seen at Ikos Aria were something we had never seen before. I use the word genuine because travelling with a baby is a very different experience (although luckily our son absolutely loved his time at Aria!) and the staff went above and beyond to make sure his every need was catered to as well as ours. It’s very rare to find a resort that’s both luxurious and family friendly and clearly Ikos hotels manage to do this perfectly! The bungalow and garden suite were both beautiful and we are glad we got to experience both. We loved walking around everyday. Any little issue we had or any request we wanted to put in, was dealt with a smile, with professionalism and swiftly. Being able to have our son’s delicious snacks and his meals made to perfection was the most amazing touch.

The restaurants and the cocktails? Amazing! The food at Kos was a real highlight as vegetarians - absolutely delicious. Ouzo was our second favourite and the setting is next to none. The service was very special. Provence was so romantic and so baby friendly at the same time, which was lovely. As a vegetarian we don’t tend to choose French restaurants as a first choice but Provence was really very good. There are so many special touches at Ikos and the best way to experience it is to go and visit, without giving too much away. The spa is very much worth visiting. We were there for the soft opening hotel so really got to enjoy the hotel and see things flourish, and we already can’t wait to be back! Thank you to all the wonderful staff that made our first holiday at this wonderful place as a family an unforgettable one. Aria’s greatest asset it seems are its staff (oh and the pear martinis are so good!).

We are not due to visit the IKOS Aria until the 9 June 19. However we have already received a 5* service from Dimitra Spanou - Guest relations Manager. Dimitra has already helped book our meal reservations and the Mini car experience. The service has already been outstanding and we are looking forward to our stay and meeting Dimitra in person.

An absolutely beautiful resort with truly world class service.

We were upgraded to a Deluxe One Bedroom Beach Front Bungalow (highly recommend!) and were blown away. The rooms are tastefully designed and the large enclosed garden was perfect for our son to run around in. The view of the beach and bay in the morning was simply breathtaking.

Great food at all of the restaurants. Our favourite restaurant was Ouzo and highly recommend booking it at least twice during your stay!

Our son used the heroes club, giving my husband and I some quality time to relax round the pool. I can’t remember the two of us did nothing so this was a real treat!

The food, wine, facilities, dine out options, entertainment for the kids etc is all second to none. We’re not kidding when we say once you’ve been to an Ikos you’ll never want to holiday elsewhere!!

A few special mentions:

Aggeliki (I hope I’ve spelt it right) at Ouzo was incredible. She truly understands the meaning of world class service and continually went out of her way to make sure we were looked after.

Lefteris at Flavours for bringing our son olives every morning and putting the biggest grin on his face every time he saw you. Taking an assertive and hyperactive two year old for a meal can be stressful and you made it a lot easier for us.

Finally a huge thank you to Iraklis for looking after us so incredibly well. He went above and beyond to make sure our holiday was memorable and relaxing (yes - relaxing with a two year old!!) from booking restaurants, bringing our son toys and arranging a special couples massage for my husband and I, you really helped create the memorable experience that Ikos promise.

Also a special thank you to the gentleman who brought our son a car toy from the shop and the guest relations manager. I’m sorry I can’t remember your names but you were also amazing!

Can’t wait to come back!!!

From the moment you arrive bleary eyed from your flight, you feel like you have stepped into a dream. Everything has been incredible and we are only onto day two. The most perfect place to travel to with your child/children, we are having the best stay and already can”t wait to return! Thank you Ikos Aria!
