Would be hard to fault this hotel, apart from the high bar prices. We would expect to pay more for drinks in a nice hotel, but no-one likes to feel they are being ripped off. We had a beer with our meal, then took a five minute walk to one of the tavernas in Marmari. There aren't many, and they aren't very lively, so this is not the place for you if you are looking for nightlife. Apart from that, the hotel is lovely, rooms immaculately clean, pools all kept very well. Lots of space and sun loungers. Staff were very very helpful and welcoming.
This hotel seemed to have a lot of German guests, and seemed to attract an older age group - not many children. The food was good, and plenty of choice - although you don't have to dress up for dinner, the hotel asks that gentlemen wear trousers in the evening, not shorts.
The hotel supplies beach/pool towels, aswell as towels in your room, so you don't need to bother packing any.
We saved at least 12 euros each by booking trips in Marmari rather than with the holiday rep. We went on the three island boat tour, which we very much enjoyed, and was well worth the 30 euro each. We were lucky enough to see dolphins too.
You can get the bus to Kos town right outside the hotel, which is a good day out for a wander around the shops and sights, nice square with lots of cafes, and the harbour.
Marmari is a five minute walk from the hotel, and we walked along the beach to Tingaki in about an hour. We also walked around the salt marsh, where you can see flamingos, and other bird life. (You can also see naturists on the beach, so don't be too surprised!)
