The best hotel I've ever stayed in! The Hotel: The hotel complex itself is fabulous. It's spacious and beautifully decorated. You'll be tempted to stay there for the whole trip! The Staff: I can honestly say I've never been to a hotel/resort with nicer staff. Everyone seemed to genuinely love their job and it really showed in their treatment of the guests. You are made to feel welcome and at home from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave. The staff will go above and beyond in every way to make you have the best stay possible. The Restaurants/ Food: We stayed at Astir Odysseus with an all-inclusive package. I can't encourage you enough to opt for the all-inclusive package. The variety of food was amazing- for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There was something for everyone. I especially loved the cupcakes, spring rolls, pizza and fresh fruit selection. The pictures really don't do the food justice. It was delicious. I was with a group of four and each person had different tastes/diets and we had nothing but praise for every meal. Also as part of the All-Inclusive, you could have dinner in the Al-a-carte restaurant on one evening of your choice. We went there for one of the groups 60th birthday and we were greeted with a bottle of champagne and a cake with birthday candles followed by the best meal of our trip. The Bars/Drinks: The all-inclusive option offers an impressive selection of drinks-both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. There is a delicious local beer on draught or bottled and a great selection of cocktails. There is also a lovely selection of juices and speciality coffees/iced drinks. My favourite bar was the Dawn bar(by the beach pool). The staff there were SO friendly. I wish I knew all of their names because they were all so nice. The bar manager, Aris, was especially great! He always greeted you with a smile and just has a great personality. A real asset to the team. Entertainment: The 'animation' team really made an effort to bring a buzz to the resort. They were an extremely friendly and funny bunch of people. Six nights a week they put on a show in the main 'lobby' bar area. During the day they organised various sports/events such as darts/archery etc but they always put their own fun twist on things to keep it entertaining. Rock Wall Climbing: I decided to give this it's own section as it was probably my favourite thing about the resort, due mainly to the wonderful lady instructor. (I think her name was Mitko. Sorry if that's wrong). I had never tried rock climbing and was a little anxious but she was so friendly and encouraging that I decided to give it a try. I came back three more times and went further each time, slowly progressing up the levels. What really allowed you to enjoy it and forget about the height was how safe and secure you feel due to the instructor. She is not overbearing or pushy at all, but so helpful and has a great sense of humour. She was the best staff member I came across (and that's saying a lot since everyone is so great) and it was the most enjoyable activity in my opinion. The Spa: After booking this hotel, I was browsing their website and found a 15 minute voucher for a free massage of your choice. I had been for 2 massages in other spas before and didn't really enjoy them. I found them boring and didn't feel they really helped ease any sore muscles I had. We decided to print the voucher since they were free. The spa was very welcoming and didn't make you feel pressured in any way into spending money if you just wanted to use the voucher. They just wanted you to enjoy those 15 minutes. The massage was amazing, so good in fact, that we came back twice more. Rebecca and Dimitrius are wonderful masseurs. Both my boyfriend and I were extremely impressed with the massages. They really focused on the sore muscles and we left feeling amazing. Even if you have never had a massage or didn't enjoy it in the past, try the 15 minute voucher so you can see how great this spa is. Negatives: Although I loved the resort and couldn't recommend it enough, there were a few problems. The first major issue I had was that the toilet door in the bedroom was see-through. So was the shower door. Not only was this bad because the person you share your room with may see you do your business but I was always worried the staff (mini-bar service/housekeeping/maintenance) would walk in. I really think this needs to be changed. The second issue was the fact that the pool times were quite restricted. They operate from 9am to 6pm. I personally love going for night-time swims and having all the pools close at 6 was very disappointing. The third issue is that there is no ATM on site. I would have liked to have access to an ATM rather than having to take a bus trip to Kos and it's akward when you need cash when you want to leave a tip. I would imagine the staff would receive much more generous tips if they had an ATM on site. Also one other small issue is the baggage weighing scales charges you per use. It would be better if you could just weigh your bags without having to pay especially since there is no ATM. Overall: An absolutely wonderful hotel with great staff. I can't wait to go back. We're already planning our next trip.

The Astir Odyseus is a lovely hotel, nice rooms, clean and with excellent restaurants/food & a nice spa although we visited in the quiet season there was plenty to do on the complex although on reflection I would have liked to travel off site more than we did (one visit to Kos town, which was nice, beautiful harbour/fort, very clean etc). What I think really made the holiday for us was the staff, from the animation team, to the reception, restaurant & bar staff they were all brilliant. My children were genuinely upset when the time came to say goodbye to Francesca/Alex etc. My only minor gripe relates to the fact that we could not eat in the Ithaca (a la carte) restaurant itself as the management had decided to reserve for what I assume were a couple of VIPs. We ended up effectively in the Dawn bar/barbecue area for what was nevertheless a great meal so I'm not going let that impact my rating! My children have asked numerous times when we can go back - always a good sign!

This is an excellent hotel if you want to chill out. It has huge pools and is right on the beach though there is not much entertainment and it is away from the towns. The cocktail bar run by Arri is great he will make cocktails not on the menu if asked. The main restaurant has lots of choice and is superb except for the restaurant manager who believes that red wine should be served ice cold !!! The tavern restaurant is fab for lunch the lamb chops were a great favourite of ours. We hired cycles for 5euro per day and went to both Kos town and Tigkaki on the same day overall a lovely experience .
