We have just returned from Kos after getting married there. We stayed at the Continental along with another 8 of our party, I would reccommend the Continental Palace to anyone. The staff there are amazing, they can not do enough for you. We decided to have our wedding reception at the hotel and they put 110% into making it a completely beautiful setting, we had flower petals put on our bed whilst we were getting married and the receptionists were quick with water and tissues when my emotions got the better of me on the morning of our wedding! It is a 15 minute walk from the centre or 90 cent on the bus, 5 Euro in a taxi. You have to be up early if you want a bed around the pool, though they do have a policy where if you are away from the pool for more than 20 mins they can remove your towels for other customers to use them. Just over the road you can hire 2 beds with an umbrella and 2 bottles of water for 5 Euros. We booked the Water Park and Lazy Day through the rep, the Water Park was 23 Euro but you can get a free bus and pay 17 Euro once there. We paid 40 Euros for the lazy day but you can pay at the boat for 20 Euro, it is a fabulous trip so was worth it. The rooms are nice, we had a huge balcony over looking the Sea, Pool & Gardens, there is a tv though we did not use it, air con & mini bar, which is the priced the same as the bar so reasonable. I am so depressed to be home, already looking to book next year which is something I don't usually do!
a great hotel with fantastic helpful staff. Irene on reception especially, nothing is too much trouble,and she can sort out any emergency. the lovely elena in the bar more than made our holiday with her laid back friendly manner. Outside the hotel, you took your life in your hands trying to cross the main road which was more like the M1. Two or three bars nearby or a mile hike to the town.20 minute queue for a taxi to get back.
Great hotel! Stayed in June 2003 and heading back this Saturday (4 June 2005). Lovely pool and rooms although a bit of a walk from the centre. Food was fine and perfect for a lazy holiday in the sun. Highly recommended!!
hotel spot on i loved every moment of my holiday kos town is a a magical place highly recomended for young couples who want to relax and keep away from rowdy british tourist.
we loved this hotel very good for the money we paid, my daughter was in the pool most of the time. the staff were great and the food was of a good standard. nice earthqwake night before we left, but this normal apparently. on bus route to town so that was handy,rooms were confortable aswell. I would recomend you stay here for value for money.( hi to the people who were from Northampton shame you had to go our kids were getting on very well together)
hotel great very clean, food good and the staff were wonderful
