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.

Lovely family holiday!
We stayed here as a family with two children aged 14 and 12. On arrival we discovered that the two rooms we had booked were not next to each other (we had previously emailed the hotel to request this). We were immediately upgraded to a maisonette suite with our own pool, which we were very pleased with, good customer service. We were located at the far end of the resort overlooking the beach, which suited us very well. The wind means the waves can get quite high and the views are amazing. We walked along the beach although there isn't much to see. We got the bus into Kos town which had a great relaxed feeling about it. There is a lovely indoor food, spice and craft market in the main square. The harbour is very pretty and there are little back streets full of shops. We did see some migrants and also saw slashed boats and discarded life -jackets. The food was very good with lots of variety and lots of fruit. My husband and daughter went to the A La Carte restaurant on the beach (my son & I don't do fish!) and my daughter said it was the best meal she'd ever had. The rooms were cleaned every day by very cheerful staff and the grounds were maintained very well. I felt sorry for the beach bar staff - the bar is always busy during the day and they always seemed to be understaffed and some customers were rude, so I think if they appeared to be rude themselves, they were under pressure. We remembered our manners and had good service. The lagoon pool is great, it has a river that you can paddle a lilo around. I used the spa for a beauty treatment which was very good. We watched the first show at the new stage, the facilities look amazing and I hope it goes well. We played cards etc in the evenings, so not that bothered about entertainment, although a good show would be good to watch. We had a lovely time with great weather!More
We visited the the Astir Odysseus in May last year with our young son and knew we had made the right choice of hotel when we arrived. The hotel is clean and modern with great facilities. We had a swim up pool room in the new block which was amazing but if ever we went to either one of the other pools we had no problem in getting sunbeds. The food was plentiful with lots of choice in both the buffet restaurant and beach BBQ. Staff throughout the hotel were friendly and caring. Overall we had a wonderful 10 days and wouldn't hesitate to recommend or visit the hotel again.More
What a place! From the moment we set foot off our coach and into the lobby we knew we had picked the right place! We booked the hotel on a recommendation from a friend who had stayed there a few years ago. As frazzled young professionals our aim was total relaxation, we were not disappointed! We were upgraded to a suite which comprised of a huge living room, large terrace balcony overlooking one of the new swimming pools, large bedroom and amazing bathroom. The room was comfy, tastefully decorated and clean. The rooms were cleaned every day and towels replaced daily. We spent most of our time at the pool by our room simply because it was so peaceful and beautiful, away from the main pool which was busier and more lively. The few times we did go to the main pool however was still lovely. Foodwise - very good. Lots of choice for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Drinks, also great! The staff generally were great, very helpful and very friendly. They work such long hours, especially the entertainment staff who were great fun. There was a young chap who worked in the main bar who served us most evenings who was lovely and very efficient but sadly I can't remember his name (he had a goatee beard, in his early 20s)! The only MINOR criticism we had was that there wasn't a lot on in the evenings. There was a piano man in the main lobby every evening who played the same 1970s songs each night which was fun at first but then became a little tedious. It would have been nice to see different live music, perhaps a bit more current or upbeat, in the lobby whilst having drinks. We will definitely return to Astir Odysseus! Thank you for making our stay so relaxing! Stayed September 2015More
Great family holiday!
We went on holiday to Astir Odysseus August 18th 2015 and we where really impressed with everything that was on offer. The resort itself was clean, lovely decor and the restaurants offered a great choice of good food. No problem if you have children as there's all types of food to suit any fussy eaters. It's always best to arrive early in the evening for dinner as it does get a bit busy around 7.30-8.00pm. So 7.00pm is a good time to get a table. You will not go hungry! The beach restaurant is fantastic at lunchtimes, with a small but very tasty BBQ, rice, salads, cheese and breads etc. The BBQ chicken was the best we've ever tasted! All the chefs and staff are very friendly and will go out of their way for you if you have any problems. The pools are really clean but the loungers around the beach pool could do with being replaced as they where very tired. The evening entertainment is a bit limited if you're not keen on loud amateur stage performances. Otherwise there's not much to do? If I had only one negative point to make it would be the amount of wild cats and kittens that are allowed to roam around the outside of restaurant seating areas during meal times. Unfortunately the problem lies with the 'animal loving tourists' encouraging them by offering yummy food! All in all I think Astir is the nicest resort on the island and we would definitely recommend it for both value and quality. ðMore
A Week to Chill
Anticipation and expectation, normally I don't allow these things to fog my thoughts, however, for this trip, one that mattered, they were right up there in the gods. From the moment we walked into the air conditioned reception area I was totally impressed. Swim up room, restaurants, bars were great. The quality of the food? Always very good. Themed nights normally disappoint, not here. The beer is good, even from the free mini bar in the room. The weather was stunning for the time of year, I'm sure that helped, Kos is an interesting place. Kos town is well worth a visit and hire s car for a day or two to take a look at the other end of the Island. Top tip? Book and hire your car on line... Works out better value. This hotel/ resort is one of the best I've stayed at... I've travelled a fair bit. So my week?... Exactly how I pictured it. More
