Iberostar Odysseus Tingaki, Kos
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
No weather data found for [, ”Kos”, ”Tingaki”, horizontal]
Modern, newly built property in a rural location some distance from the closest resorts 5km away, therefore car hire is highly recommended.
Spacious both internally and externally with stylish furnishings and contemporary decor, it rather lacks in character and atmosphere, particularly within its extensive grounds.
Popular with the European market, it is suited to those who request a low-key property with up to date facilities in a remote position.
Security gated entrance leading to the grand, angular, flower fronted entrance of the main building, with large ancient Greek prints and a map of Greece on the wall.
3-storey, terracotta, beige and lemon with balconies and terraces either wooden or glass fronted, and spreads around the 1st pool.
Bungalows are further towards the sea, 2-storey high, chunkier blocks with either balconies or terraces, in the same colour scheme with direct entry to the lagoon pool.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Most rooms
Built Year: 2009
The reception and lobby is ultramodern with a cooling atmosphere due to the pale colour scheme. The reception desk is black marble with a wooden top and frosted glass behind. Throughout this area, white leather sofas and chairs are accompanied by large white vases and low-level lampshades along with dark brown coffee tables and pale slate floors.
The main bar is spacious with a dark wood bar. Neutral colours decorate the main dining room which is bright and airy with floor to ceiling windows and leads out to a spacious shaded, decked terrace with a feature waterway surrounding it.
Grounds are spacious and mainly lawned with palm trees and a noticeable lack of colour and flowers. A central walkway runs from the main building to the manmade sandy beach, which is in part attractive with plant entwined pillars and trellising overhead.
The other section is bordered by a wire fence with rough ground and agricultural plots open to viewing behind it. The first rectangular pool is surrounded by decking with a separate children’s pool with 2 feature animals within.
The 2nd freeform pool area at the beach is much larger with tiled and grass surrounds and a further separate children’s pool. Both pool areas have an abundance of space for the wicker sunbeds. The a la carte restaurant is located by the beach as well as the equipped children’s club and playground.
Area Type: Iberostar Odysseus is situated on the old Kos Town to Tingaki coastal road, mid way between the 2 and directly on the beach. In an isolated location with no amenities in the vicinity, the closest bars, shops and restaurants are to be found in either 2 of these resorts. Surrounded by agricultural fields with majestic mountains to the rear.
