Had breakfast in our room, yoghurt with honey, banana, fruit and nuts.
Meet Apostolis in reception,he says he has checked the weather and he also confirms what we already know, (by looking at Windfinder on the 'net) that indeed, very strong winds are forecast. I confirm we are staying just the two nights and Apostolis arranges for their usual …
The last stop was at the small, newly discovered ruins at Euromos. It was charming because you could tell it was just a little village. ...
Today we rejoined the Cenneti Kaptan for another day on the water. The four stops were the same as before Camel Beach, Bagla Bay, Aspat Bay and Aquarium Bay. It was a hottie today with temperatures on the low to mid thirties. Still without the humidity is a much kinder heat than Queensland summertime. None the less, I have come back with a very red back - probably a result of the time spent snorkelling. This time around I persuaded mum to take the plunge so she swam at almost all ...
Today we ventured to the Greek island of Kos and spent time in Kos town. The day began eventfully with our not being picked up at the designated time (7.30) but at 8.30 after calls by the hotel staff to the tour operator. I can fully appreciate the sentiments of the Bodrum "what to do..." page that says why bother going to Kos. Indeed the queues are long and tedious - queue for ticket and passport check-in, queue for passport control, queue for baggage check, queue for ...
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 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Nefeli Hotel Kós
Our 2nd time back to nefeli. Nikos,Nikki,Maria and wilma's hospitality is second to none. Nothing to much trouble. Hotel rooms, food, and pool are excellent. We will be returning next year and the year after for our wedding.

P.s Try the new water park for an excellent day out.
Just remember this, when reading reviews about hotels. If it sounds too good to be true - IT PROBABLY IS.
Not a bad hotel for the price. We stay for 10 nights in August with out six year old son. The rooms are clean and well maintained and the swimming pool was an adequate size. The design of the hotel is very 70's and uninspiring with very little attempt to develop an attractive theme. Our main complaints were:
Everyone the works at Nefeli Hotel has a smile and will take time to look after costumers. The staffs there are fantastic; Nefeli even throws a free BBQ and a good Greek dancing night on as well. We looked at different hotels before deciding on Nefeli, after staying there we were positive that we made the right choice. They are minutes walk from Kos town. Beaches are available near by, all though I would go to Kos town, the beaches there are more popular and there is more to do, like water sports and bars (plenty of good bars). Nefeli have a pool table, table tennis and darts available, their pool is the best ever Sam said "because it felt close and warm".
what a lovely hotel, very clean and friendly. we had our second wedding anniversary out there and nikos bought some champagne out for us, lovely surprise. rooms are good size, cleaned every day, pool what can i say its absolutely gorgeous. brothers nikos and demitrius and their wives and family run the hotel. they are such a friendly family. wilma (who is dutch) is the barmaid in the evenings, she is lovely works very hard nothing is too much trouble. the hotel is a little outside kos town which is nice you get the breeze especially when hot weather. nikos bbq's are gorgeous especially on their greek night what a night, loads of food which is very tasty and entertainment good all the family join in. my husband and i have been back a week and already missing the place, we notice that loads of people go back there every year i can see why.
just returned from two weeks staying at the nefeli and can honestly say i have never stayed in a hotel like this. eveyone who works there makes you feel so welcome and part of the family. we never normally spend much time in any hotel we stay in this was different almost all meals and nights. i really cannot praise the hotel or staff highly enough
We have just returned from 10 days at the Nefeli and wanted to ensure anyone booking to go to Kos Town picks the Nefeli. It is above standard for any hotel or appartment I have ever stayed in in Greece - and that has been a few. The bathrooms were great with a full size bath, completely tiled and with a hair dryer to boot! For any one who is a frequent visitor to Greece a bath is a very unusual thing!! The staff were great with the owner Nikos being happy to arrange anything for you - including any special drinks or gifts you need - they will be there in the shop for you the next day. I have never been one to write reviwes but I felt I just had to for this hotel. It is out of the way and quite but close enough, up 'the leafy lane', to the rest of the night lift - so you are not kept awake. Hire bikes so the 'leafy lane' is not so long as I bet you will spend most evening in the hotel bar and they are so friendly. We will be going back
A holiday poem " Nefeli Hotel"
The day you arrive with a Welcome Smile
The days that follow feel as long as a Mile

We have recently returned from a lovely holiday on the Greek Island of Kos. For the majority of our break, we stayed at the Hotel Nefeli where we were made very welcome by Niki, brother-in-law Nikos and his wife Maria, Wilma and all the other staff. The hotel is situated around 10 minutes from the nearest beach and 20 minutes from Kos Town itself, with its fabulous marina, old town, tavernas, etc. We were impressed with the hotel's facilities including a bigger than average pool, plenty of sun loungers, umbrellas, and a 24-hour bar manned by our Dutch friend Wilma. We loved Nikos' special evenings with Greek specialities, cooked by himself on his beloved barbecue - his gyros is a treat! The hotel rooms with a/c, satellite TV, balcony and fridge on demand are well furnished and kept immaculately. We have never felt so relaxed and at home in a hotel. Niki, especially, made us very welcome and the hotel's popularity is shown by the number of returning guests. We really recommend staying at this lovely hotel if you visit Kos.
Best holiday ever at the Nefeli
we have just spent ten days with the most fantastic family at the Nefeli appartments in Kos.
from the moment you arrrive you are treated as a member of the family by Nikos, Nikki, Marie and Wilma, all the kids are great too.
As Nicos says you are his guest you become a "Nefelian"
the greek night is not to be missed providing you can swim ! as at least one person usually ends up in the pool
even when you leave everyone waves you off no matter what time even 1.30 in the morning.
Have already recommended to friends and family once you've been there you would never go any where else on KOS.
