really nice place
"when i looked on the internet site i saw brightly decorated rooms, beautiful pools and wonderful views. Well 3 out of 2 isnt bad, the rooms must be in the process of being decorated. Our room was a bit dull in comparison to the pictures on the sites i looked on, however, they were ok and very clean and spacious and the maid cleaned and tidied every day. the beds are the most comfortable beds ive ever slept in, on a par with my bed at home, the only diffrence was i didnt have to make it. The resort is very big and has a lot of stairs, it does have lifts but even so once you find them theirs usually more stairs before you get to were you want to go. The pools are great well kept and modern, a bit cold but thats what you want after a long greek sunny day and you cannot resist the swim up to bar great!!. We stayed on bed and breakfast no complaints on the breakfast a very varied range of food avalible, from bacon and eggs to water melon or yogart. For our other meals the restaurant was great but if you just want a snack your a bit stuck really. There is a mini market but its not well stocked. We didnt see much off the entertainment but what we did see wasnt very impressive. The location is ok a little out of the way to walk any were but a local bus stops right outside the hotel and takes 5 minutes to get into kos town or you can hire a bike. over all a very nice hotel with freindly staff we enjoyed our stay and would reccomend it for a quite relaxed holiday."

Better than we thought!
"We read the last review of the hotel, and it is fair to say, that the hotel is showing its age. We were not too sure when we were shown our room, dark, but not too bad. When we first arrived, there were not many people stopping there (is that a good or bad sign?) but as we were stopping for a week, it did fill up each day. Mainly popular with German and Belgium people, staff were nice and sorted any problems out. Air conditioning not on until end of May, even when we said it was hot in the rooms, so had to leave the balcony door open. Beds and pillows very comfortable.
Breakfast was fine, you can sit on a balcony overlooking the beach. Setting is very good, right next to the beach, you can go on the sun beds next to the pool or by the sea. Tried various restaurants nearby, Simos was home cooking (moussaka very nice his wife makes it), Nickos and Contessa tried too hard, Spiros further down near the Kipriotis Village very good for fresh sardines. Overall good value for money."

Rather pleasant hotel
"This is a rather pleasant hotel but located in a somewhat isolated area (Psalidi) about 5 km from Kos City.
Some rooms have been renovated but they are still not up to four star standards. The hotel shows its'age: cracks in the walls and in the floors, old-fashioned small bathrooms, stinking elevators etc... As of October 1 they turn off the A/C although the outside temperature exceeded 27Â° C during the day. This is not acceptable for a four star hotel.
The staff are friendly; the (very fatty) food is so and so and we never had fish nor lamb in the whole week. Many (smoking) German tourists.
This hotel is a far cry from the Dionysos in Ixia (Rhodes) owned by the same company. The latter is definitely worth its' four stars."
