Excellence in customer service!
If you haven’t booked a holiday though Ikos then you need to! This company continue to and will always exceed my expectations. Looking forward to many more luxury holidays with this Ikos brand and it’s amazing people! ‘The Sippitt Family’
An absolute delight = Food was exceptional, staff incredibly helpful, drinks amazing, and rooms were fabulous. Our initial room was somewhat disappointing as the 'sea view' in the main block was more of a view of the top of the restaurants! We made a gentle comment to the lovely lady that was looking after our wellbeing and 2 days later we were upgraded to a 'Junior Suite" - again in the main building, and it was absolutely fabulous. The beach isn't that big, and If I was a manager I would make the centre stretch of it 'adults only" as opposed to the very end. We did struggle to find a 'child free area' but it didn't put us off. Its a family hotel and we understand that, but we did feel there needed to be a bit more 'adult only' times or areas. We don't use the pool when away as we love the peace and quiet of the beach. Sadly the prices have gone up so much am not sure we will be able to afford to return, but we absolutely loved the resort and would love to visit another Ikos resort in the future.

Exceptional family experience
Had a fantastic 11 day stay at the ikos aria and would highly recommend it. We were a family of 7 with children aged 14, almost 12, 6 and 2 4 year olds. It was our first stay at an Ikos although we have stayed at Sani club and Sani beach and we were not disappointed. The place is beautiful and definitely feels 5 star. We had a 1 bed suite with garden beside the beach pool for 5 of us and a superior triple for the other 2. The 1 bed suite wasn’t huge but was big enough for the 5 of us, with 2 completely separateable rooms. The ‘lounge’ was made up as a kids bedroom permanently with a large double sofa bed and then a separate single fold out bed. Bed was very comfortable except the pillows were very soft but I asked for firmer ones the 2nd day and they brought some within an hour. Bathrooms are nice although disappointingly only had bath towels as opposed to bath sheets. The Anne Semonin toiletries are good. The minibar is restocked daily (and all included) and they were very happy to take requests for anything you’d like in there including different wine etc. Fantastic location straight onto the beach pool which we thought was by far the nicest pool. Shelving on one side so great for kids. To us the deluxe rooms didn’t seem worth the extra. The only real benefit was the use of Seasons restaurant (which we liked). It felt quite away from everything else and the pool didn’t seem better. The service throughout the hotel was excellent with all the staff so good with kids and keen to help. Particular mention to Paris and his team by the beach pool who kept us well stocked with excellent cocktails and ice creams/milkshakes for the kids! My son managed to hurt himself jumping in the pool one day and they got a great doctor very quickly and paid for a taxi to a clinic for him to have stitches and even collected his prescription for me. The food and drink quality was very good. By far the best I’ve seen in an all inclusive. We ate in all the restaurants and probably liked ouzo and Provence the best. Every one was good though, and the breakfast buffet was excellent. If you want lunch at ouzo you do need to get there early or you’ll have to queue. As others have said how busy it is is the issue. You need to book restaurants as soon as you can in advance. You can book 3 before you arrive and then need to book the rest as soon as you check in. That being said the staff were excellent when you rang them at trying to solve issues and get you into places when you couldn’t!. as others have said, you also needed to get sunbeds by the pool before 9am most days. The kids club was also excellent with a great timetable of free activities and lots of friends to make. Again you need to book this well in advance of your stay, however don’t panic if it’s full as so many don’t turn up each day they seemed to always fit people in. One disappointment was the teen activities. There was theoretically a teen club but no one came to any activities. I think they could really do with some kind of gameS room for teens with a pool table and play station for example. It was sometimes a challenge keeping the older ones entertained. The theatre had good shows every night. Check the schedule in advance as some were more for kids and some for adults. I’d definitely recommend booking the mini for a day. Again you can do this before you arrive. Really nice little cars and good to get out for a day exploring. In summary I’d highly recommend Ikos. It’s expensive but you do get what you paid for. I will definitely either go back or try one of the others (as long as we haven’t been bankrupted by coronavirus!)
Another fantastic Ikos holiday
Having previously stayed at the Ikos Oceania and Ikos Olivia, both in Halkidiki (see my other reviews), we had high expectations of this new Ikos resort in Kos, especially as this time we had travelled with friends (another couple) who hadn't been to an Ikos before. We weren't disappointed! Another superb resort in a fantastic location. Food, wine and cocktails of the highest standard we have come to expect from the Ikos brand. This particular resort had three extra a la carte restaurants in addition to the usual offer of the Ouzo (Greek), Anaya (Asian), Provence (French), which were the Kos (local dishes), Seasons (daily produce) and the Olivia (Spanish). Again we couldn't fault any of them, they were just superb. Even the included room service and poolside menus were top notch (I can highly recommend the Pork Gyros!). So impressed again and if we weren't already Ikos converts we certainly are now, and we're off to the Ikos Dassia in September 2020!
