3* not a five star
"We got this holiday on the teletext, i checked it on med hotels and it looked lovely. When we got there i though the hotel was beautiful (reception area ect) rooms were ok nice but NOT 5*. we arrived late and in the broucher it says they have a mini bar in the room there wasn't so we went to the bar in the reception area and asked for some drinks around 1am the waiter looked at me and said something under his breath he had a very horrible attitude and refused to serve us, the other waiter was nice enough to SELL US some drinks (by the way this was water and coke not alcohol). the next day we got up and went round the pool there was a pool bar but it wasnt open untill july, there was bird crap all over the sunbeds and i mean every sunbed they were never cleaned. the pool was not very clean (ive never saw it getting cleaned) the prices of everything in the hotel was double anywere else. This is the best of all, there was NEVER any of entertainment in the hotel but half was through our holiday a lady dressed in spanish (not greek) clothes was selling tickets for the hotel for a spanish night with food and dancing it all sounded good but when we asked for a ticket we were refused AGAIN this time it was because it was for the doctors and there families staying at the hotel. we are a young couple who dont like to go clubbing but like good entertainment and a nice place to stay with polite staff this is not what you will find here. I would not reccomed it for families or couples just people who like to pay double for everything sit in the sun and then go to bed a 8pm."

"Stayed at the above ,hotel first impressions at the Iberostar Kipriotis Panorama , was wow , the hotel foyer a huge place polished marble gleaming, reception staff helpful , hotel room lovely with views overlooking Bodrum in turkey.
Restaurant, lovely with outside and inside eating, food excellent, with plenty of choice . Plenty of sun beds, free towels and bath robes.
There was 3 other hotels in the village you could have lunch or dinner to ring the changes, the hotel entertainment was geared more to the elegant in the panorama but, you could go and join in at all the other entertainment at the other hotels in the group no problem, all in the same area.
Kos town was only 5 minutes away on an excellent bus service , they have a pub street area ,clubs and discos .
I can recommend Kos itâs a lovely island , and the Kipriotis Panorama hotel is spot on."

"We have just returned from Kos and had a fantastic holiday. The Iberostar Kipriotis Panorama was a friendly hotel, the staff were very attentative and we had a spacious apartment with superb sea views of Turkey. The breakfast and dinner offering was good and varied. I can recommend hiring a quad bike for a couple of days to tour the islands ancient ruins, mountain villages and beaches ... great fun !!!!!!"

"Very welcoming hotel in a great location with fantastic views of surrounding resort. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday close to Kos town. The meals were buffet style and were very good. I liked the restaurant as you never had to queue or wait for a table and the staff were very helpful. The hotel room we had was very modern and bright with a sea view, ( air con, hairdryer, fridge, tv, bath robes & beach towels). I had a great holiday & will be going back to the Iberostar Panorama Hotel soon. Its a must !"
