We travelled a little late in the year, Oct 2015, and were surprised to find this large hotel almost empty. Apparently they had had around 300 cancellations due to bad press publicity over the refugee situation. This is such a shame as when we went into Kos town they had very little impact on the facilities and kept to the...

I adored this hotel. From looking like an exotic castle to upmarket clientele, everything was spot on. It was quiet even though there was entertainment every night. Food was fabulous, two pools to choose from and the location was perfect too. Just outside the town centre meant it was close enough to walk into but away from the bustle. The...

I think it is appropriate to start with an admission that I am a fan of this hotel and all that it offers but I also have a critical mind and will record my honest thoughts. In sum, if what matters to you on your holiday in the sun in Greece are nice rooms, cleanliness, good quality and selection of...

Pros: Very clean, spacious room, with a balcony facing the pool with access to the pool (not all rooms are facing the pool though). Quiet (yet it was off-season). Plenty of food for breakfast and dinner with a large variety. It was only half board but we practically didn’t need any extra meal. Two pools + one for children. Good...

If all you want is to relax sitting by the pool in glorious sunshine, then I would highly recommend this hotel, at this time of year. We had a standard room with balcony, as didn't need to pay extra to make tea! However; whilst we didn't complain about the broken shower fitting, was surprised the maid had not reported it...

Booked this last minute a bargain £800 for 11 nights half board at this lovely Thomson Platinum hotel. We went in first week of school holidays so to get it for the price we did was a bonus!

This is a really nice hotel, excellent food with a wide variety every night, immaculate and clean rooms and friendly staff. The hotel is a five minute bus ride from the centre of Kos town, very easy and only 1 euro each way. There is car/bike hire right below the hotel and a very good cycle path into town which...
