Just returned from another superb visit to The Alice Springs. We have been going for about 10 years, sometimes twice a year in June and September. George, Elias and Barbara are so lovely, friendly and helpful, as are all the staff. This year Barbara looked younger than ever and was in sparkling form. We are already planning to go back next year.
There was only one problem this year, not the fault of the hotel or the management, but the inconsiderate smokers each side of us. The usual leisurely breakfasts on the balcony in the cool of the morning were ruined by the stereophonic passive smoking. As soon as they were awake they lit their gaspers and puffed away for all they were worth. Very selfish!!!!More

Excellent, Friendly, Spotless
Fab hotel, couldn't ask for better hosts that the Family running it.
The pool area is spotless with comfy sun loungers around it, a pool bar and games area and eating area too.
The food is outstanding, kleftiko night is not to be missed, melts in your mouth.
The rooms are spotless and have everything you need in them.
I have stayed here about 3 or 4 times now and most holiday makers return more than once to this hotel More

Returning for the sixth time
My wife and I have been to 'The Alice' five times and are booked for number six next September!
We have been to many many other places but this is truly where we are happiest.
Yes the rooms are basic but they are kept very clean with clean linen and towels practically on a daily basis.All the staff are great but of course George, Barbara and Elias are really special people who will go the extra mile to ensure you are cared for. The recent report about someone forgetting their glasses in Zia is typical of the support you can expect from the family, I have seen George drive someone to the chemist and help them get the right medication, nothing is too much trouble.
The location is excellent, 3 minutes to the beach and 15 minutes into Kos town which is a lovely place to wander around and enjoy.
Much praise is rightly given for the Lamb nights and Steak nights, but in fact all the food is good whether it's a snack, breakfast, lunch or full evening meal.
A word of warning;- 'The Alice' is addictive, but in a great way. Go and enjoy.More
BBQ night at Alice Springs
We stayed at Alice Springs in 2011 and took part in their BBQ night.
We returned to Kos in September this year but stayed in different accomodation as Alice Springs was fully booked. As soon as we booked to return to Kos, the whole party said we wanted to go back to the BBQ night.
The day after we arrived in Kos, my partner cycled over to Alice Springs and met with Barbara and her son Elias, both of whom remembered him. We secured places for the following Friday night and I can honestly say it was well worth it !! As a veggie, they again made me a veggie plate which was delicious. The others had the ribs and the steak which they reported were amazing.
We were made to feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble.
Fantastic family !!!!More
