"We cannot fault anything about the holiday we had in the Astir Odysseus. We travelled late September (27th think) and stayed for two weeks, so we knew the holiday season was coming to an end. We booked a family room through Tui as this was the only accomdation options available at the time we booked. Though only two of us, the extra space the family room gave us was helpful. If its not clear from pictures, as you enter the room, there is a sofa bed on the right which would easily be ample for an young adult or children. It also has its on air con in this section and there is doors that seperate this section from the main bedroom. The wardrobe was easily enough for two, so easily stretch to three. The main bedroom is large with a sofa and ours lead onto a balcony that looked over the main pool near the hotel. We stayed in room 222. Would recommend this to anyone. The room was great, though had a few occassion to get maintennance support for the air con but was fixed in hours of us raising with reception. Room was cleaned spotlessley every day with the beds made. Couldn't ask for more. We primarily stayed around the main pool and I guess possibly being the time of year but it was so nice not having to get up at crack of dawn to save a sun bed. We would just leisurely sure beds after breakfast nearly every day after 10 am. Relaxing. And even more relaxing, downloaded the app and was able to order drinks to your sun bed. We found at best it took upto 5 mins or less to arrive. Excellent. We booked with All inclusive, so a good range of cocktails were available and made from scratch in the main bar (think beach bar may have had pre-made cocktails but still pretty good). Local beer on tap was ok but i preferred the local bottle beer, still included but less gassy. Also they had gluten free beer, which I preferred. Stripped them dry within a few days. But bless them, restoked within a day or so. Onto that, bar staff were brilliant, attentive and got to know a few of them (Stellios and a one I name Roy Keane) who were great to have conversations and always genuinly happy to serve. And if you want something different they have a range of craft beers and cocktails no on the all inclusive list you could buy. Yes, they were 5-7 Euros a go but reasonable if you leave them as treats. Food was excellent. So much choice and every day something different if you dared to try, though there was regular dishes (pizza, pasta, chips) and vast ranges of salads. They had a great display of olive oils - over 25 bottle or so, which was great to try with various breads. And the deserts, we've been to a number of greek islands and hotels, and the majority serve what we regard as puff and fluff - they look nice but no substance. Astir Odysseus you have broken the mould. Chocolate that tastes like chocolate, patisseries with substance. Brilliant. You could choose to eat inside but lots of outside options which we preferred and meant it didn't feel like canteen like ot"
"We arrived @ 2.30am however we were checked in & taken to our room by golf cart & in bed by 2.45. We stayed in a maisonette with a shared pool with next door, it was spotless, comfy & spacious. We had 2 minibars, one downstairs & one upstairs which we’re replenished daily. The food & choice was awesome, something for everyone & different every day. Although it’s a help yourself buffet we were never queuing too long & it’s a great touch that your drinks are served by waiter/waitresses therefore reducing people traffic in the main restaurant getting up for drinks. The staff were always attentive & polite. The BBQ restaurant at lunchtime was great with plenty of choice. On a evening we always used the main bar & enjoyed the quality of drinks & the service was excellent ( nice touch with the peanuts ). The evening entertainment was ok. The disco down at the beach bar was good. We’ve stayed at quite a few 4/5 star all inclusive hotels but this stood out as the best, so much so we have booked to go back in 2020 "
"Having been moved to this hotel, as our original booked hotel decided at 2 weeks notice to close early!, we were concerned about what to expect. On arrival any concerns we had dissapeared. We stayed for 1 week to celebrate our daughter's 18th birthday. Our rooms had fantastic panoramic sea views, also overlooking the huge pool, which was steps away from the beach. The whole hotel was immaculately clean and had a modern feel throughout. Meal times were a feast, with so much choice of food from breakfast to dinner, of a very high standard. The hotel is in a quiet location, but there is plenty to do within the hotel. There are fantastic walks along the beach for several kms in both directions. What really stood out was the professionalism and friendliness of all of the staff, who ensured our special holiday was flawless and one to always remember. A real 5 star experience, with a week of complete sun & 27 degrees just to top it off!"
