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.

All in all a great stay. We had a beachfront villa with private pool which would have been ideal however it was a long walk from the main bars and restaurant. We did try to move rooms but the rooms they offered were not as nice as what we had booked and they also wanted us to pay extra!! We had already paid nearly Â£4000 for a week for 2 adults and 2 children so weren't willing to pay any more. We found later in our stay a whole swim up section behind the a la carte restaurant which looked half empty so we were disappointed they didn't offer us a room in there. This didn't spoil our stay though and the food was absolutely amazing. I especially liked the vast choice of breakfast, but all of the meals were hot and tasted nice and there was a huge choice of food for everyone. Not much in the way of entertainment in the evenings ( music quiz / cabaret acts but a bit bland and tacky ) which was a shame as we were so far away from the bar that we couldn't even sit out at our room and fetch a drink to sip on the balcony. One evening our room was infested with insects and we had to be moved overnight. This was disappointing as it was my birthday the next day however they did bring me a cake and sing to me at the evening meal. I also didn't feel that this hotel was very suitable for children. We took our 17 year old and 12 year olds and they got quite bored. The beach was rocky and quite dirty. All in all we had a good time. I wouldn't return purely because there are better hotels out there for the money. Wish the beach bar had stayed open until later every night as they only started to do this on our last night and that may have given us something else to do in the evenings. More
Spent a week here me and my wife were celebrating The staff are really top class can nor do enough for you. Can not say the same about the reception especially the men very Frosty! We upgraded to a swim up room at a cost of 40â¬ per night very nice top end rooms. food if all good with plenty of choice . Drinks are nice ,mini bar in both rooms fridge was not that cold so used very little I like it ice cold in 30C Will be returning one day , would have given 5 stars but kept the room on for a late checkout at a charge of 60â¬ And not even given fresh towels .More
Hotel is a great resort that offers all inclusive and half board services.It was one of the best vacations.Hotel staff is pleasant and able to assist you for everything .Food taste was delicious and Spa facilities one of the best i made.I recomend hot stones massage or 4 hands.I stayed in pool access room and it was very clean,every day may change towels.Just outside the room are sun beds that you can relax and eat your fruits next to the pool.Negatives wifi was a bit slow but works.More
On the surface difficult to fault - - Really nice food - great selection and a good standard - though lack of choices of restaurant - will get very repetitive over week - drinks service very slow - clean rooms, -The bar is OK - and the staff are very polite and attentive, and nice cocktails BUT it's so extremely boring with no atmosphere - there is no music played anywhere during the day - at any of the pools (except for the 4pm zumba class) - which is great if you are are in the "just want peace and quiet" clan, but it takes so much away from the atmosphere and holiday feel. We try to avoid the more excessive resorts where the music takes over and the entertainment staff hassle you continuously - but this is the complete opposite - feels like a retirement home in the day We won't be coming back until we're much older - which is a shame because all the base ingredients are there on a side note - the pools are all one depth, except for the toddler pools, so if you have a younger child there isn't really anywhere to play ball gamesMore
We stayed at the Astir Odysseus Kos Resort & Spa for our Honeymoon July 10th-17th. We arrived late on the Sunday evening and we're welcomed at reception where we checked in and were then taken on a buggy to our sea view double room. We stayed in room 564 which was on the ground floor, with a terrace which overlooked the pool area. I have to admit I was slightly disappointed that we didn't receive anything in relation to our honeymoon :( This didn't warrant a complaint as its not something we paid for but after reading numerous reviews prior to our honeymoon saying that couples who were there on honeymoon had been upgraded, received cards, flowers, champagne, petals on the bed etc... I felt a bit sad that this was the one holiday were we could've felt that extra bit spoilt upon arrival but didn't :( The room was spotless and a decent size for two. The gown and slippers were a nice touch. We didn't get the chance to iron all of our clothes before going away and only realised when we arrived that the rooms didn't have iron/ironing boards and that the hotel didn't have any to lend out due to safety reasons. This was our mistake and we should have checked before we left. We managed to buy an iron in Kos Town so problem resolved! The resort was lovely, very clean and spacious. The grounds are well kept and are constantly being worked on. The days when we stayed at the hotel during the day we spent around the pool area (furthest away) on the front. From here we had views of the sea and could see Turkey in the distance.There were always plenty of sun loungers available. We ate lunch at the beach bar most days. The food was delicious! Fresh meat, salad etc... Lovely views over the sea. The main restaurant was also very nice. Always lots of choice for each meal of the day. It's safe to say we didn't go hungry! We went out on the jet ski once which was good fun. It was â¬40 for 15 minutes which I thought was a bit steep but I guess it's to be expected when it was the only one there. I'm guessing you could probably find one cheaper in one of the near towns if you were bothered. The animation team were good fun and worked extremely hard. We played French Bowls nearly every day. We watched the night time entertainment 3 times and it was ok. The theatre area was nice :) The staff were polite and friendly. We went on the bus into Kos Town a few times which was only a couple of euros each and took about 15 minutes. Taxis into Kos Town were â¬12 Euros each way. Taxi drivers were friendly. One day we went on a boat trip (Eva Cruises) which we would highly recommend. It was fantastic. If I remember rightly it cost us â¬35 each and that included a BBQ lunch and unlimited wine. We set sail at 10.30am from the harbour at Kos Town and returned at 6pm. Overall we really enjoyed our stay at Astir Odysseus and would defiantly consider going again with our children in the future.
