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.

If you are looking for a nice quiet hotel on the beachfront - this is it not. Standard is good, but the hotel is lacking atmosphere, got me a rather sterile feeling. The beach is ok as is the food. One evening they served great sushi, but the rest of the time the buffetstyle food could not satisfy my exspectations. The ladies and gentlemen at the reception did not make us feel welcome (rather we were getting the impression we disturbe them), but the staff in the restaurants was really nice and friendly. Will we be back? no.More

My wife and I have just returned from having spent 2 weeks all inclusive. The hotel was outstanding from start to finish, but what made it stand out from the rest was the high quality of the staff, and their friendliness throughout. I was very impressed by all aspects, including food, service and cleanliness, and we had a most enjoyable timeMore

Wonderful Holiday

We have just returned from a fantastic week at this beautiful resort. I went with my wife and 6 year old daughter. Whilst we expected it to be good, having read the reviews, it exceeded our expectations in every way. Immediately upon arrival we were met with a warm and friendly welcome at reception. Our bags were placed on a golf buggy and we were driven to our room. As others have said this is a large resort and is nicely spread out so whilst it was busy it never seems crowded. As we arrived late into the evening they had left sandwiches and crisps in our room for us to enjoy as we unpacked. We had been upgraded to a pool view room, which was actually a 1st floor room overlooking the swim up rooms which looked lovely and we had a sea view when looking between the room blocks in front of us. The room was nicely decorated and spotless as was the whole resort, mainly down to the small army of cleaners who seemed to work around the clock to keep the whole place looking immaculate. The hotel has 2 large outdoor pools although we only ever used the large lagoon style pool by the beach. This pool is amazing, the biggest pool I've ever swam in. Whilst it was busy we never had an issue getting sunbeds and when in the pool it was never crowded due to the size of it and given the heat during our stay we spent plenty of time in the pool! Meal times were a delight, being all inclusive we made use of both the main restaurant and the lunchtime bbq at the beach restaurant. The main restaurant has a huge array of foods with even the most fussiest of eaters unable to complain about choices. The quality was excellent and every day we had a new variety of delicious dishes to try.. Almost every meal time I told myself I was just having a small meal but then when faced with so many delicious dishes I couldn't help trying them all!!! Onto the staff in the hotel and it has to be said what a friendly and enthusiastic bunch of people they were. The entertainment team never stopped.. During the day they organised the activities around the pools or on the beach and on an evening they kept going with the same level of enthusiasm to make sure the guests enjoyed every minute. In the restaurants we were always greeted with a smile and hello and the waiters made such a fuss over our daughter every time we went in. One day our daughter managed to change the combination on our safe and couldn't remember the number!! Therefore we had to walk to reception to ask them to fix it. We were asked to return to our room and wait for someone to come and reset it for us... By the time we had walked the 2-3 mins back to our room, someone was stood at our door for us... This was the level do service we got here all the time. As has been mentioned the resort is isolated and you need a bus or taxi to visit anywhere but this suited us down to the ground as we wanted to simply relax for a week. For those wishing to visit, the bus stop is at the end of the hotel drive and taxis can be ordered at reception. We were all so sad to be leaving and I have already priced up to return for a longer stay next year... They are working on some improvements which will only make this place even better. Thank you to all the staff who helped make our week in astir Odysseus everything we hoped for and more. More

Amazing holiday

My partner and I stayed at the Odysseus for one week in September 2013, and loved every minute of it. The staff went above and beyond to make us comfortable and help us, particularly when it came to booking onto some excursions. The Thomas Cook rep we were assigned to was absolutely brilliant, really helpful and very honest, for example he advised us if we thought an excursion might not be for us, and talked us out of hiring a car and using the bus instead, as it would work out cheaper for us! The excursions themselves were brilliant - we went on an island hopping cruise which was relaxing and fun, and the crew of our boat couldn't have been nicer. We even saw some dolphins! We also went to the volcanic island in the Dodecanese Islands, which was very interesting and provided an insight into the history of the area. The breakfast, lunch and dinner were all fantastic, with a vast range of food on offer for every meal time. The pools were a little cold, but this was refreshing after being out in the heat of the day. The beach at the bottom of the resort was lovely, with some rocks to one side of it and lovely sand the other. We also visited Kos town, the hot springs and many restaurants, and they were all fantastic with friendly people at every door. I would highly recommend going to Kos, and picking the Odysseus as your place to stay.More
