We were staying at a Kempinski Hotel, the Barbaros Bay outside of Bodrum, Turkey -- this was our "beach" stop. We went to dinner at their Italian restaurant on our first night.
We had noticed that the balcony of our new room, ...
Today we managed to get to Bodrum Castle - very impressive building with a long and varied history. There were lots of steps and spectacular views of the Aegean as well as Bodrum marina. You can readily see that is would be a great defensive building with visibility to see who is coming. Lunch in our newest find for great pide - this time with complementary apple tea. Then it was back to the pool for some more reading and ...
... By the time I returned mum was recovered so we did some more shopping - and picked up some exquisite silk cushion covers. The shop owner saw us coming - and we were treated to apple tea - and complementary "kuneffe" after our pide. Kuneffe is a sweet cheese filled dessert with honey and coconut - not over sweet and very nice! Following all of this we were well ready for the pool and some ...
Today we tried to visit Bodrum castle - and failed. Having got up bright and early so as to avoid the heat of the day we arrived to find that the castle is closed on Mondays. I wanted to pick up some more books ( it is amazing how much you can read lying beside a pool!) ...
Today we decided to have a quiet day -lazing by the pool. However mum was determined to have a proper fried breakfast (which we did for lunch) at the restaurant across the road from our hotel. Then back to the pool for more reading and swimming. I think I am the palest person here as I am rarely out of the shade and have 50+ sunscreen (left over form Israel las ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Alice Springs Hotel Kos Town
I stayed at the Alice Springs hotel in late June 2006 in room 222 (Beside the pool) with my girlfriend for one week after reading many reviews of the hotel on tripadvisor. As soon as we arrived in a taxi, Elias, George and Barbara's son greeted us at 2.30am and showed us personally to our room and in the morning, greeted by George and Barbara. The rooms were spacious and air conditioned, which was such a bonus in the hot weather. The staff were helpful in every way, from giving advice on where to eat and where not to eat, right through to hiring us a car on request. On Monday evenings, George hosts a BBQ night, offering traditional Greek (and a bit of Aussie thrown in) food, followed by a fantastic evening of entertainment, including traditional Greek dancers and a bit of fun and games also. We also had, on the Wednesday, 'Lamb Kleftiko' cooked again by George and enjoyed poolside. The hotel is a stone's throw away from the beach and a 10-15 minute walk to Kos Town. Overall, a wonderful holiday made better by a family who seriously know how to look after their guests! This is a hotel you want to come to season in, season out. Thanks for a fantastic time guys!!
My boyfriend and I had a very enjoyable week at the Alice Springs Hotel in Kos.When we arrived we were greeted from our coach at midnight by George, the hotel owner, which we thought was a really nice touch and throughout our week stay the friendliness and service from the George, Barbara and the rest of their team never faltered.
Remember your last holiday?or the one before that?.if you are anything like us then you probably remember the place you went rather than the hotel/apartment or staff.
The first review for Summer 2006! Just got back from an unforgettable holiday on Kos, made perfect by our stay at the Alice Springs. We booked on the basis of Tripadvisor reviews (thank you everybody), and the hotel more than lived up to what people say here thanks to George and Barbara and their staff.
I have been back one week now and Alice Springs is definately the most friendliest and welcoming hotel I have ever been to.

I have just returned from the Alice Springs, and as My title suggests the hotel is a home from home.
George, Barbara, Elias and Rita are so welcoming and friendly that anybody can relax from the first day of their holiday. George has the inside scoop on all the local trips and taverners so you won't need to waste your holiday looking for that nice little greek taverner, or perfect trip.
I have never been to a hotel or resort where I would keep going back every year, but the Alice Springs would draw me back over and over again.
Hotel had a wonderful setting. Right near the beach, George and family were so helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Elias has a nice moped (harley), he knows how to make a cocktail. Myself and my wife loved it, will be back soon.

Just returned (early this morning) from a fantastic two week holiday in the company of George and family at the Alice Springs. It has to be the best most welcoming place I have ever stayed. The atmosphere between guests and staff was brilliant especially when The Ashes came home, having an Aussie hotel owner makes it even more fun. I actually met the lovely Jo Cole and her friend Claire (see June 2005 review) during my second week. There were many other people there who been before and that helped create a family atmosphere. The BBQ and lamb dinners HAVE to be done. The pool and bar are superb. Location is spot on. Ask for a ride on Rita's trolley!! I feel sad its over but I will return.
Love to all at Alice Springs - Guy Weston
This is my 2nd stay at The Alice Springs and again I was thrilled to have another excellent stay. Greeted by Elias in the early hours like I was an old friend made a very special start to my holiday. I stayed in a room overlooking the pool which was the perfect setting. The room was spotlessly cleaned, timely each day by the friendly household team. I agree with the last review about the Alice Springs bar food, very good value and yes the Big Breakfast was amazing. My favourite lunch snack was Club Sandwich which was served with perfect french fries. This hotel is one of the best on the Island and you must go to experience the happy family atmosphere. If I could fly out again tomorrow I would. I have 3 trips planned to the Alice Springs next year - May, July and September - that should tell you everything you need to know! from Jo Cole. xx
We have just returned from George & Barbara's Alice Springs Hotel and they could not have made us feel more welcome. The Hotel is family run so within the first day you are made to feel very welcome and looked after. George organises a BBQ night once a week which is a must for young and old. I don't want to say to much about that other than you have got to go and it's well worth the few euros for the night. They also do a "Dinner Night" it is quite simply a Lamb Dinner sat around the pool but not being a great lamb fan this by far the most tasty and suculant lamb that just fell off the bone. well worth a try.
