Astir Odysseus


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 and hills. 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 taverna, with candlelit tables on the sand.

August 2014 - Awesome!!!

Just returned from this amazing resort where I would like to share our experience as we cannnot recommend highly enough. The resort in itself is spacious and well spaced out. Even though it was fully booked it didn't feel crowded or noisy. The rooms are big, cleaned daily and properly. The breakfast/lunch/dinner were very varied in food and the food was simply excellent! The staff were altough busy and running around like crazy, were always smiling, polite and attentious. There's 2 big swimming pools (outdoors) and a small one indoors (located on the lower level adjacent to the spa. The downside for us was the beach. Its small and with big rocks at the entrance and very windy (but apparently that side of Kos is always windy). Having said that, we still preferred the beach and you get used to it. It's awesome to relax, read a book if you're into quietness and chiling out. One of the Upsides of the resort was the animation team. Dennis, Francesca and Gill are great. Every evening they prepare something for the guests after everyone has had their dinner, either games, dances, bingo nights etc...and during the day they have a massive schedule to try and suit the majority of people such as Yoga and Aqua dance, water polo and volley ball, darts, shooting and archery etc... We also travelled to Pserimos, Kalymnos and Plati (3 islands just near Kos) which for those you need to get into Kos town (you take a bus from the hotel and takes less than 15 minutes for 2 euros per adult) and on the Marina there's about 30 companies selling tickets for either those 3 islands, or to Bodrum - Turkey. The 3 islands cruise is amazing, we saw dolphins and stopped for an hour swim and dive and shopped around. I would recoomend this cruise also. As for the hotel again, it has most amenities you can expect, its a 5***** resort so you know that the staff will thrive to help you. For the men - take a few pairs of trousers for dinner time!! I only took one pair and I had to go back to my room on the first night as you have to wear them.More

Another good review

We stayed here week commencing 18th Aug 2014 for 7 nights and had a very enjoyable time. Good points: • Two excellent swimming pools (very clean and large) • Plenty of sun loungers still available after 9am • Good service by friendly staff • Very good food (buffet style) • Very comfortable accommodation • Very clean and tidy hotel Bad points: • Limited selection of cocktails on menu • A ‘meet the management’ cocktail evening was held only on 1 night and for ½ hr at 6.30pm. • Beach just about Ok but nothing special (mix of pebbles and sand) • No special gala dinner during the week but hotel wanted to charge £10 for separate beach party they were promoting • Maitre D should be more friendly /welcoming – I think he only welcomed us once when arriving in the restaurant • Women allowed to wear cut down jeans at dinner • Reception wanted to charge us £5 booking fee on top of £10 taxi fare Points of interest: • If you go by bus to the thermal springs from Kos you have to go during the day as the last bus back from the springs is something like 5.30pm. Best time to go is at night however when it is cooler but you need your own transport in order to do that. In summary, the Astir Odysseus is a good quality hotel which we would recommend despite the minor niggles mentioned above. Enjoy !!.More

best holiday!

We went on holiday to Astir Odysseus at the end of July,busiest period. We just absolutely loved it. The hotel is beautiful and the pool by the sea just stunning. The level of service and friendly attitude of all staff was beyond the 5 star status. Food brilliant and you don't struggle to get a table or queue. Our night in the a la carte taverna was just wonderful. Just make sure you book when you check in. My 15 year old son even loved it. Animation team great but hotel is so spacious that you can join in or opt out. First time we ever gone all inclusive and it was spot on. In summary the best compliment is to book again. Which we have just done for next summer! We have booked a swim up room this time as they looked so good! A big thank you to all the management and staff for a fabulous holiday, and we will see you next year!More

Ian M,

Best hotel in Kos

I have just returned from a fantastic two week holiday to this hotel with my husband and daughter age 7. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Rooms were clean and tidy we had a sea facing room (room 579) which was in a quiet part of the hotel and had spectacular views of Turkey and the main pool which is stunning. All staff were friendly and are attentive but I have to say it's the small animation team at this hotel that made our holiday. They are all fantastic and an absolute credit to the hotel. My daughter loved the mini disco with Gill and Francesca and I thoroughly enjoyed the archery and shooting with Gill and the 'water gym' with Denis. They all work extremely hard and were an absolute joy to get to know. The food is good and very varied but worth taking a trip to kos town to eat there too. The only thing I was slightly disappointed in was our arrival. We arrived in the early hours after a long day and had to take our em luggage to our room which was a way from reception and were also only given stale sandwiches from a basket at reception as the restaurant was closed. I would have expected at least something in our room. That said we had the most fantastic holiday and would love to return one day. More

Superb hotel, amazing service, beautiful rooms, food was fresh and wide selection of traditional Greek food and western. We had 2 different rooms within our stay, one pool room, and then a seaview room. Both were outstanding and both had their own uniqueness. Both rooms had lots of privacy and extremely comfortable. All the staff were super nice, always helpful, and constantly making sure we were comfortable. Kids had a great time too with a wide variety of activities. I have travelled to Kos for the last 15 years, and as far as resort hotels go, Astir Odysseus has definitely lifted the game in Kos island. It would be difficult to go back and stay anywhere else.
