Kos was located 10 minutes (by bicycle) away from the hotel. The beach opposite the hotel was a disappointment (black sand), but quiet though. At the beachbar you could rend some lounge chairs and you could eat here for a small price. You did have to rend a bicycle here for the whole vacation, but if you saw how extremely crowded it was in the city, you were glad to be in this hotel. Nice pool with terrace and bar, you could also eat here.
