This village-style luxury hotel has a clutch of stylish pools and its own private beach.
The peaceful Odysseus is a few paces from its own private beach, surrounded by fields. There are 3 pools, and lots of eating options.
The lagoon pool is a real focal point. It’s huge, with views out to sea. And there’s an authentic Greek restaurant, which sits right on the seafront.

Really lovely experience!
Stayed at this Hotel for 2 weeks from 28th September to 12 October and had a really lovely and thoroughly relaxing time. Reception was very welcoming and very efficient. The entrance lobby is huge and very impressive! It is clean, modern and full of lovely sofas and pictures and leads on to the most attractive bar area. We and our luggage were taken to the room by buggy which was very much appreciated. The Beachfront Room we had was excellent with stunning views over the Adriatic to Bodrum. The room was very modern and very clean and we were most comfortable. The walkways and gardens are all very well maintained and the poolside and beach areas are very, very clean. The hotel was very calm and quiet during the daytime and there was no shortage of places to sunbathe, either by the pools or down by the sea. This is practically the end of the season so perhaps it would be more bustling mid-season. It is a very large site though so I am sure it would always be possible to find your own space! The food offer was extremely good in the main buffet restaurant and the staff were constantly cleaning, tidying and replenishing the food and making sure that all ran smoothly. The choice was huge! It was very impressive. Yes, all inclusive buffet restaurants can get a little busy if you hit them at the wrong time but we felt that overall it was a calm and well managed dining room. We were well looked after by our waitress 'Ori' (Ortenca?) The plates, tablecloths, glasses and cutlery were always gleaming. I am an absolute fusspot when it comes to cleanliness and I was extremely satisfied with all aspects of the dining. It is also possible to eat outside at all mealtimes. At lunchtime we mostly ate at the Beach Restaurant which serves a fantastic BBQ with a stunning choice of meats accompanied by salads etc and we found it difficult to restrain ourselves! The Chef Michalis did an excellent job of making sure nothing ran out and that all of the guests were looked after. I also asked him for some advice on how to get my own home made Moussaka to taste more authentic and we had a lovely conversation about the Greek flavourings. Thank you for your advice Michalis! We only did one activity, rifle shooting, during the day as we were chilling out but most evenings we went to the bar and the entertainment was well received. The bar staff were all really attentive and pleasant and we thought the cocktails were really nice. I did find the white wine too sharp but I enjoyed the Rose. Personal taste. We used our fifteen minute spa voucher on the second day and had a really nice back massage in a double treatment room. It was a very good introduction to the Spa but to be honest we thought the treatments on offer were very expensive so we didn't go again. Just one thing to note, this hotel is not within walking distance of any bars and tavernas so we feel that all inclusive is the only way to go unless you hire a car. There is a bus service to Kos or to Tingaki which stops right outside the hotel. For us this was a fabulous holiday and we would definately return to this hotel in the future.More
Not really all inclusive and food too boring
Due to the strike in the Greek airports we had to cancel the originally booked 5 star hotel and re booked this one in a very hurry situation. We chose it as its a five start hotel and seems a good review on booking.com. We booked a huge suite for family and I called hotel in advance to request for a suite with direct swimming pool access and the staff confirms on the phone which is ok, but when we arrived, it's on the 2nd floor, and the front desk manager says no availability. But the room was big and nice with free mini bar and welcome food and wine. Nice clean and designed and with swimming pool view from the balcony. View is nice at the beach and swimming pool, and recommend for shared pool rooms. We took the all inclusive for 7 nights, it's a bit pricy and we are very disappointed on the food! Too boring and very limited selections. We have been to Cyprus, Tenerife, etc much much better standard with food. At the 3rd days of stay I already don't know what to eat anymore as almost everyday are the same! Most of the staffs are nice except one old fat guy, maybe the manager of the restaurants. He is so arrogant ! every time I say hello to him and he never replys and ignored me, he only talked once when we ordered a bottle of wine, of course extra fee, it's a rude service for such a 5 star hotel. All inclusive is not really true. Bar after 12 you have to pay yourself, and some of normal cocktail you have to pay, i.e. Mojito as bcz ppl like it more. snack time is really short, 16:30 to 17:30 I believe. Almost end of the season, sun bed near by the kids swimming pool are removed, bar closed at 11 now, and entertainment program sucks! Don't have a really entertainment place, no stage, mini disco is in a really small room, which smells really bad as its under ground. But thanks to the kids club 2 girls, super helpful and sweet to kids! I think they really need to check the quality of food, they taste only salty, nothing else and the selections are bad, almost the same all the days. I am sure I won't go back as I don't know what I can eat over there anymore:-(.More
wonderful late summer break - great value - Quiet
This review is based on a late summer sun break in mid October as a couple with no kids. We went all-inclusive as most seemed to be and for the money the holiday was hard to beat for what you received. The hotel complex is impressive and has a spacious feel, never feeling overcrowded in the grounds, pool areas and restaurant. There was no fighting for the sun beds at 5am for us in mid Oct anyway, I don't think the hotel was full though. Going at this time also meant the number of kids was relatively low. Don't get me wrong I am not anti-chlidren we just wanted it to be a bit more relaxed - and it was. The rooms themselves were (mainly) arranged in small 2 storey blocks of around 4-12 apartments each. Ours was a 4 block, 2 up and 2 down this was at the north side of the complex next to the beach pool with great sea/beach views. As our balcony (1st floor) or a patio (grd floor) was north facing this meant no sun ever hit said balcony which was a shame. Looking around at the other rooms it seems that many had this issue and only a hand full had south or west facing rooms. I understand you can't have a sea view which faces north and have a sunny balcony. Some of the upgraded rooms with swim up pools were also north facing and in Oct the water was too cold for most people to use, most pools were empty most of the time. (So can't see the point) In 7 days we had around 3hrs of cloud otherwise it was wall-2-wall sunshine, temps in the mid 20's. There was a fairly strong wind blowing from the north which was a bit chilly from time to time early/late in the day. The beach was small and narrow but OK, it was sandy where the sun beds are but was pebbled and stony as you went into the sea so not so good for that. The sun beds and parasols on the beach were the hotels so free to use, which in other resorts would add up to a lot of money in hire costs. As with other reports food was excellent loads of choice at every meal. Staff also friendly and polite, this includes unsung staff - gardeners maintenance maids - everyone. Rooms cleaned well every day. No issues with all-inclusive. Fixtures fittings around the hotel clean and modern. A fabric shower screen over the bath is the only thing that was out of place, a walk in wet-room floor with glass screen would be more in keeping with everything else. The beach bar was also in need of a make over, behind the the bar looked dated and cheap. These are the only two issues I can think of - did it ruin my holiday ? Of course not - would I go back - yes.More
Keeping up high standards year after year!
The staff of this hotel didn't just reach a very high standard but they are able to maintain it year after year and even is capable to surprise regular guests as we are (10 times now) with their new ideas, different menus, great service, luxury and kindness. We always feel welcome, at home and looked after very well. In short: the Astir has become our second home that always makes us feel at ease, relaxed and it is never ever boring. To us the Astir is the best place to be!More
