My boyfriend and I decided on the Kordistos hotel in Kos for our first romantic holiday together.
On arrival there was no staff present (it was late at night) and we were left in an absolutley boiling room with no access to air conditioning. The room had a view of the road which we were annoyed about as we had payed for a sea view. There was some suspicious goings concerning two men in the bushes across the road from the hotel which looked on to our balcony, this also made us feel uneasy about our chosen hotel.
The following morning my boyfriend and I complained about our room and managed to get it swaped to the basement room. It was much better and on looked the pool area. We payed for our air con and began to settle in.
The surroundings of the hotel seemed extrememely grim. It looked like a run down ghost town and I actualy cried when we were exploring the place on our first morning. There was several bars just along the road from the hotel but none of them opened, not even at night. This suprised us greatly especially because it was in the 'busy' month ofJuly.
The pool area was small but clean and the water was nice and deep to swim in. However we spent most of the days at the beach. The beach was nice, quiet but a little dirty. Not terribly dirty but there was a few things floating about in the sea on occasions (my boyfriend found a tampon one afternoon!!!!!)
We had nice meals at the hotel but sometimes had meals out. There is a couple of nice restraunts just opposite the hotel.
The night life was really awful. The pubs were very very quiet and did not have much of an atmosphere at all. We usually would just have a meal and a couple of drinks and head back to the apartment.
I would say that this hotel was alright, nothing great and I really do not think we would return. The area was what let us down the most. It has nothing, absolutley nothing to do except sunbathe and swim at the beach or go walks. Definatley not a holiday for young couples looking for a break with a bit of entertainment. This area is certianly not for families with children either, quite frankly the children would be bored out of their minds!!!
With this all said my boyfriend and I still had a great time because we didn't want to let anything spoil our first holiday together, however we will not be returning!
