We stayed for a week from 10 to 18 September, and we booked the deluxe room (660) through booking.com
We're a couple in our 30s, and we just wanted to chill in a nice place - somewhere not too busy but not too quiet. The Platanista is a great spot and we had a really lovely week there.
The room was good - nothing fancy but it was comfortable and spotlessly clean. Maria, who cleaned our room, does a brilliant job. She's a lovely, warm, and friendly person. She really made us feel welcome and I hope she is properly appreciated by the management. It seemed to us that the staff are happy, which makes for a nice atmosphere.
The staff at the Platanista are all really nice people. They clearly care about their jobs and their guests, but it was easy to have a laugh and get to know them all as well. The team at the poolside cafe were amazing - great energy, and really good at their jobs. They introduced us to the hotel cat, Bendito, who was treated really well by the staff (we're animal lovers so this made us happy!).
We didn't eat at the hotel in the evening, but we had lunch at the poolside cafe most days. You can get a really tasty and fresh bowl of pasta for less than a tenner - the coffee was good too and the drinks were good value.
In terms of downsides, we didn't really spot anything. We didn't get involved in the activities, but it all looked like good fun and the animation team worked hard.
Everything in the hotel, and throughout the grounds, is immaculately clean. It is a beautiful place to hang out and relax.
It's a bit out from Kos Town (about 30 minute walk at a good pace). We liked Kos a lot. Great people and a really chilled vibe. Food in the town is a bit hit and miss, but we had great meals in Broadway, Patrino, and Oregano and Lemon.
No complaints - we'd recommend it highly and we're really grateful to all the staff for making our week in Kos so chilled and happy.
