The hotel is on the North coast of Kos, surrounded by farmland. It has two separate pool areas, one with water slides, which the kids loved. Our rooms were clean and comfortable (good airconditioning) and included a safe, fridge and TV (only UK channel was BBC World). The hotel was divided into a main building and several garden 'villas'. The food was amazing - always something available to eat or drink - the kids particularly enjoyed the self-service ice-creams and drinks and the twice daily crepes. I was impressed by the variety of food, something different each day with themed evenings. The sandy beach was a short walk and the sea was lovely and warm. Activities included wind-surfing with instructors available. There was entertainment available: darts, tennis, table games, water polo, beach volleyball - but these were mostly dominated by the german guests. If you want to see ancient Kos or go island hopping, you will need to travel (bus, taxi or car), we did two day trips but with the heat - longed for the pool back at the hotel. We loved the relaxed atmosphere - firendly staff and always plenty of sunbeds in each of the pool and beach areas. I would recommend this hotel for a family holiday where you want to relax by the pool or beach and enjoy time having fun together.
