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.

We spent our Honeymoon here, it was magic

We booked this hotel not knowing what to expect. My new husband was very skeptical regarding All inclusive holidays but buckled under the preasure from me. I did my homework and went through many, many hotels in Greece read loads of reviews and this hotel was the only hotel with no bad reviews. It was the second week in October which meant we might expect rain so we needed a swimming pool and things to do do just in case (the weather was fantastic). When we arrived the receptionist was so pleasant and said "she would do something for us" when my new husband mentioned it was our honeymoon. The room was wonderful, everything was better than we expected (an upgrade we think). When we returned to our room the next day we found Rose petals in a heart shape on the bed with a swan made from the towels with Rose petals sprinkled over it, the bathroom was also sprinkled with petals. Next a delivery of champaign in a cooler, chocolates, biscuits and a huge bowel of fresh fruit compliments of the hotel. What a wonderful surprise most unexpected. We are quite active so hired cycles from the hotel, cycled all over the island at a very reasonable price. The food was excellent (I was worried as my husband is very critical about his food, one of the reasons we don't often eat in hotels) the choice was varied and good quality. Food was available nearly every minute of the day, we often missed lunch as we were out but afternoon tea (again excellent) was served between lunch and dinner, I was worried about the weight I was putting on during our stay. We are not big drinkers but if we wanted alcohol drinks they were available (free of charge if the drinks were not available we were given options). I am a coffee drinker and certainly enjoyed them. The facilities were excellent, three great pools with very friendly staff, yoga and zumba by the pool. All in all we would return to Cos and to this hotel thanks to all the staff at the Astri Odysseus.More

Lovely hotel! Shame about the issues with the room!!

I stayed here with my boyfriend in September. A beautiful, spotless hotel, can't fault the food and a lovely location to experience! However, very disappointed with the room we was given. Paying for a double, sea view room which we never had! The views were as of the restaurant, and by looking left from the balcony was the pool and other rooms/ buildings. We couldn't have been any further away from the sea! I passed this by with the reception who 'reassured' me this was a sea view room. Even contacting our rep, she had no luck in transferring us to a different room, stating that the hotel was apparently full. In return, I wrote to Thomas Cook who agreed with the pictures I provided that it was NOT a sea view room. Therefore I was reimbursed for the upgraded room we paid for. However, it was definitely not about the money, it was the fact that I was ignored or even lied to and especially, not receiving the beautiful views we requested. It spoilt the week!More

A lovely stay

We stayed at hotel in early October 2014. What a lovely hotel! Staff are very welcoming. Hotel is very clean indeed, maid service in the rooms is very good. There are a couple of pool areas which are really clean and surrounded by comfortable sun loungers. Food is really nice, and having spoken to my partner afterwards have decided that it's been the best food in an all inclusive hotel that we've ever had. There is lots of choice and it's all really well cooked, and it's all worth tasting. We stayed in the rooms which were round the main pool; the rooms are very comfortable and the mini bar is refilled every day. One tip is, if you can, hire bikes to go to Tigaki; they are about 5 euros each for the whole day and it's such good fun! It takes about 20 mins to get there, you can then walk around the small town, have lunch and get on a sunbed at the lovely beach and then ride home! It's a good way to get about and not be in a taxi and the coast road is so nice to ride along. The bikes can be hired from the hotel. We also went into Kos town a couple of times, which is a good day out. We got the bus from outside the hotel, really convenient and quick. The hotel is not really near the hustle and bustle of other towns, but then we went for a relaxing holiday so knew that we would not get this, although we only went for a week, and could not have done it for two. All in all, we had a really nice stay at this hotel.More

Fantastic Hotel, September 2014

We went on this years holiday, two couples (in-laws) to what can only be described as an hotel to be well recommended. Everything from the reception staff, catering staff pool, cleaners and gardeners were the most polite and obliging we've seen for a long time. The food was very good, plenty of choices and quantities. If you like having a dip, there's no shortage of places to get wet. If you want to get out and about there's a bus every hour in to Kos town, €2 in town, but pay at the kiosk in the harbour to return and it's €1.50, plenty to see and loads of exploring the ruins. The only thing I'll say watch out for; if you decide to walk in to Tigaki, just over thee miles, be very, very, careful , there's only the road to walk on, and there's bikes, scooters, mopeds, motorbikes, cars, buses, (you cannot get to Tigaki on the bus, only by going in to Kos first) and wagons to watch out for, your life in your own hands!More

"Two week holiday in October 2014

I went all inclusive, on my own, in this 5 star hotel. It was beautifully clean and the staff were very hospitable, pleasant and efficient, the exception being a couple who worked at the reception desk who, while efficient, lacked the warmth factor. Contrary to other reviews on this site I found the cooked food below the standard of a 5 star hotel. it was predominantly fried, often greasy and lukewarm. Even many of the vegetables were swimming in oil. I met several other guests in the hotel who were of the same opinion. I felt unwell owing the food during my first week and I had to go to a pharmacist in Kos Town to get medication. This is the first time hotel food has caused stomach problems for me on holiday. The other big disappointment for me was the location of the hotel. It is set in an area which, to be frank, is ugly. Dried up, rubbish strewn farm land with dilapidated and derelict buildings and a stony, uninspiring beach. There is literally nowhere to have even a short walk. The roads are narrow and windy with no pavements. Varied walks in attractive surroundings is important for me ob holiday. Thus I began to feel trapped in the hotel and frequently took the bus to Kos Town to relieve the boredom.More
