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. 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.

Amazing, truly 5 star

What can I say, I can only echo the hundreds of other positive reviews about this hotel. The hotel is huge and is kept immaculately clean, by happy staff who will always stop to speak to you. The rooms are gorgeous and have the mini fridge refilled for free everyday as part of the all inclusive package. As our flight was so late the restaurant wasn't open but we were left sandwiches and crisps which were okay. We got up and even at 11:30 am you can still get a sun-bed - which is very unusual because of the size of the hotel but it was very relaxed round the pools. The gym is basic but has; 3 running machines, a multi-gym, a couple of free-weights and a cycling machine. The gym however doesn't open until 10 am. The lagoon pool virtually on the beach is huge! It's certainly the biggest pool I've seen which is great as the waterpolo, aquagym and aquadance is all hosted there. The mini club runs from 10 am until 12, and 3 pm until 5 pm. At these times you can also refresh your beach towels, which you can hire for free. The all inclusive is great and almost every drink is free. I would recommend going all inclusive as the drinks are really quite expensive if you go half board/full board (€5.90 for a children's cocktail). The beach bar snacks are limited to sandwiches (not bad) and doughnuts (delicious). I would also recommend eating your lunch at the 'Argo' taverna which is BBQ meat and pastas. There are activities running throughout the day like; ping pong, football, tennis, vollyball, waterpolo, pool, shooting, archery, Zumba, pilates, yoga, french boules, climbing wall and more. The food at all of the restaurants is amazing, there is so much choice there is something for everyone, even very fussy eaters. On a night there are sometimes themed nights which are good fun. The entertainment on a night is limited to say the least but a big shoutout to Dennis and the animation team who try their hardest with the limited resources they had. An amphitheatre was being opened but due to the late delivery of some equipment it wont be opening until after we had left, but I have a feeling the night time entertainment will be drastically improved when it opens. The wi-fi is slow if you aren't sat in reception, but who goes on holiday to sit on Facebook? I thought id just say that we went between the 12th and 19th of August and not once did we see any migrants or anything to do with the recent influx so please don't let the news put you off this amazing 5 star hotel.More

Superb relaxing break in a top-rate hotel

This hotel certainly lives up to its 5 Star rating. The rooms are spacious and spotless and extremely comfortable. Food in the restaurant is very varied and cooked to an excellent standard. I have seen the occasional negative comment on this website about the food but feel that some people just like to complain. Even the pickiest of eaters would find something here. I loved the food and made a point of trying small samples of virtually everything. Looking in restaurants in Kos Town we are certainly glad that we were able to eat in the hotel as local restaurants seemed to be inferior. All of the staff in the hotel make a special effort to provide excellent service-from the porters to the maids and waiting staff. The maids work extremely hard to keep rooms spotless . Service in the restaurant and bars was top rate - a special mention to Rafaela in the Sirens bar who was very friendly,attentive and hard-working. The beach swimming pool was probably the best we have seen in our hotel stays. It must have been over 100 metres in length and early in the morning was virtually empty for us to use and it overlooks the beach. We would definitely recommend this hotel and it lives up to the majority of reviews we have read. It is advisable though to hire a car if you want to see the island as the hotel is a little away from anything else although the local bus into Kos Town is reliable.More

Amazing place! Would return tomorrow

Just spent a week at this wonderful hotel as a family on an all inc basis. We arrived very late due to a mishap with the booking process (in the UK not this hotel).We were initially booked in and advised that the restaurant was due to close at 10.00 pm so we were allowed to feed ourselves and continue with the booking in process later. The hotel is all on one level and has access ramps for anyone with mobility issues. A huge restaurant which is mainly self service but drinks etc are waited on which was nice. Food was superb every meal and always room to sit wherever we chose. There is a snack bar near the beach which is also very well run and provides all manner of delicious food. An a la carte facility is on site but TBH we did not feel the need to use it as the food elsewhere more than met our varied tastes. There are two pools, a main one near the front of the hotel and a massive pool at the beach end of the complex. Both are beautifully clean and very safe to leave youngsters to slash around. Staff are always on hand should you need assistance but never felt like they were pushy if you did not want to join in with any of the activities on offer. There is a private beach for guests to use, safety deposit boxes in the rooms (FOC) and air con in every room again FOC, free to use wi-fi is everywhere. There is a good mixture on nationalities here, British, French, German,Greek,Dutch and we all got along wonderfully.Entertainment ever night is available also peace and quiet at the beach bar if you prefer.All in all a wonderful week away and we look forwards to returning one day soon.More

Singles bliss at Astir Odysseus Kos

Kos, one of the most beutiful of the Greek Islands hit the headlines as I hit Kos. A tidal wave of migrants was streaming into Kos from Turkey but\ I didn't see one of the poor souls. The hotel is beautifully laid out and we had a double bedroom, sitting room and terrace. You pay a fixed price and everything in the hotel and its grounds is free, including the drinks. There are five or six swimming pools so my grandaughters swiftly made friends - and soon hit the nearby beach for sea swimming. and games with their new found friends during the day. So good were the hotel facilities that my two grandaughters, aged 6 and 7, turned down the chance to visit nearby Waterworld and the boat trip round the island. Malcolm CraigMore

Gents - Don't forget your trousers

Just back from 7 days at this hotel and I have to say, overall, this is a lovely all inclusive hotel. The hotel is immaculate with several great pools and it's right on its own little beach. The food was excellent and there was always a good choice. My tip would be to visit the beach bar for lunch as its a daily bbq and the food is excellent. Gents be warned. Long trousers must be worn in the evenings for dinner. They don't flex on this. Several people we spoke to had to go and buy trousers!! Great animation team. The kids club is there and the staff are great but it's not overwhelming. Ladies - good selection of Pilates, Zumba etc We travelled into Tigaki centre once to get gifts and grab lunch. 12 euros each way is steep but it's a fixed charge. Availability of cabs back is not good. We waited over an hour!! There are just 70 cabs on the whole Island so bear it in mind if you have kids. We also went into KOS Town one evening and it was the same charge. The bus to Kos Town is fine. Number 4 and leaves just outside the hotel each hour. Hotel staff will help. It IS an isolated hotel but it's so good you don't need to leave unless you want a change of scenery. Or if you forget long trousers!! More
