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.

I booked the Astir for my honeymoon after having to change from Mexico due to the Zika outbreak. I was worried I wouldn't get the same luxury in Europe. I was very wrong! The Odysseus is 5* in every way the food, the staff the grounds are all out of this world. They are immaculate, and when I say immaculate I am talking cleaners and gardeners working constantly. The rooms are gutted everyday and sheets and towels are changed daily or every other day depending on your preference. I had reservations about all inclusive breaks and the quality of the food. At this hotel there were more choices than necessary and every night the dishes were different with a good 12 meat/fiat options a night, a huge sale bar, bread bar and desert bar. Fresh fruit and veg were in abundance and you wanted for nothing. The staff are brilliant and they think nothing of going out of there way for you, when we thanked the restaurant manager on out last day it was as though he was just providing average service and it was nothing special. I can assure you this hotel is vey special. To address people who say drinks service is slow with dinner, yes it is a little slow but if you order before you go and get your meal the drinks are usually there by the time you get back and they are serving a lot of people and it's not an unreasonable wait in my opinion. As we were in honeymoon we had boomed a junior suite but were surprised to find we'd been upgraded to a swim up room, which was an amazing surprise. The room had been scattered with rose petals as well which was a wonderful surprise. The room with the swim up pool would of been worth every penny of we had booked it ourselves, the main pools are great but the private pool was quiet and relaxed and just right for a couple to relax at. I cannot sick the praises of this hotel enough, there were families here also who were well catered for and lots of couples of all ages, it's a must visit for anyone in my opinion. Thank you to all the staff for a remarkable honeymoon. More

Just back from a week at Astir Odysseus. A luxurious hotel with friendly staff however there were a few issues that prevented it from being a 5 star experience... - Before travelling we upgraded to a Double Sea View room at almost Â£200. We could just about see the sea 500 yards in the distance if we looked past the sunbathers, swimming pool and showers. - The double room was two single beds pushed together and were perhaps the most uncomfortable beds we've ever slept on. - The hotel operated a strict trouser policy for all restaurants and men were repeatedly turned away for wearing smart shorts, even in 37 degree heat. However, women in hot pants and football shirts were encouraged. - There was often a long wait for service in the restaurants for both drinks and cutlery, as staff were rushed off their feet. All in all it was a lovey hotel and the bar staff were great, however these points could be easily rectified.More
We went to this hotel for my friends 40th and we was not disappointed. We stayed 10 - 17th May 2016 and had a wonderful time. The only downside was the weather it rained continuously for two days but this is beyond anyone's control and we just relaxed in the room reading. The room itself was amazing and pool facing. It was the start of the season so the Hotel was fairly quiet I imagine to what it does get in the summer months. The food was yummy and lots and lots of choice, could cater for everyone's dietary needs. The entertainment on an evening was fun and we met some lovely people would not hestitate to go back to this beautiful resort wth friends or my family. This hotel has something to offer everyone and would definatly recommendMore
absolutely gorgeous views! beautiful rooms and clean! every single member of staff were friendly and helpful and smiling. all looked happy to be there. the food choice was unreal, and the quality was amazing. me and my boyfriend stayed in a shared pool room swim up room. it was so beautiful and private, we visited in May so it was gorgeous temperature, animation staff were brilliant, waiters were extremely attentive constantly bringing you a new drink when you've finished, constantly cleaning your table taking your plate when you're done. the spa staff were amazing, me and my boyfriend visited the spa a few times for treatments throughout our stay and each time was the most relaxing and comfortable experience!! also when you get to the hotel you receive a 15 minutes free spa massage which is definitely worth taking!! the best hotel I have ever been to would definitely go again, would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Stayed all inclusive as a couple for 7 nights. Room was great, always clean and very spacious and modern. We had a terrace leading out onto the pool area which was also lovely. Food was faultless in all restaurants, especially the barbecue at lunchtime down by the bottom pool. However, drinks service was a little slow in both restaurants and it turned out quicker to get it yourself from the bar if you ordered anything alcoholic and wanted it with your food. Pool and beach area were great although the sun beds weren't very comfortable. The jet ski man and bar staff were especially helpful and friendly. Wifi was excellent throughout the whole hotel which was a massive bonus! Only gripe being the reservation of sunbeds every morning around the pool with every single one being reserved by 8am even though it clearly states around the pool and in the paperwork given to each guest that this is not allowed. We also unfortunately had a late flight home at 4am and had to check out of our room by 12pm the day before which left us 13 hours with no room and no option of keeping our room on or being given a temporary room to change or sleep in as they were apparently fully booked but still had rooms available to upgrade to for current guests. Instead we had a 20 minute slot to shower and dress in the spa showers which was just absolutely ridiculous with all our suitcase contents open in the corridors to get to our things. Other than those points, a great holiday and would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Kos. More
