Single female traveller with 2 small children. Hotel is located next to ampavaris family apartments next door in which facilities are shared both are owned by the same family.

Pros

The staff are fantastic and this is what makes the apartments have such high reviews. They will literally do anything to help you have a lovely holiday.
Pool area and apartments are kept very clean, daily housekeeping, fresh towels, lovely grounds keeping.
Food at the snack bar more so the pastas are of fantastic quality for the price of €6/7.
10 minute walk into town.
Peaceful at night.

Cons

I assumed self catering comes with either a grill, microwave, toaster etc the older apartments only have a kettle and a 2 ring camping style stove. This meant there was no way to reheat meals for my son who wastes alot of food.

Feedback for the hotel

I think making small kids snack boxes would be a big seller a piece of fruit, ham/cheese or jam sandwich, small juice box.

Not related to the hotel but important information.

Although location is only 10 minutes away from town the walk has no footpaths, bikes and cars fly down the road not good for small children or mobility issues. At night the road to town is poorly lit and my children would be scared to walk back. However taxi would only be a few euros.

For a 2 star apartment this is great if you need to be close to town or just want to float about the pool for a week you will be welcomed with a smile by all the family.

Lovely place, staff were friendly with food and drink available all day and most of the evening. Self catered apartments were good size and clean.

On arrival, we were given a map and many of the tourist places were explained including buses, and best times etc.

They allowed us to stay and use facilities after check out (our flight wasn’t until 11pm) which meant we had nearly another entire day you visit KOS

They took care of our transfer back to the airport and called a taxi for us.

Greek night sounded great (we had other plans that night but it sounded like the place was buzzing when we came in)

About a 15min walk into town (no recommended for people travelling alone or young kids walking as cars come flying up that road and although most of it is well lit, some is not and can be very dark at times but taxi is only €6

local shop only 5minute walk where you can get most things for your apartment.

Check your booking with regards to AC, both there Facebook and our Travel Republic booking stated AC is provided so therefore we assumed it was included free, however according to reception this is not the case it is actually €10 per day!! So bare that in mind when booking as an additional cost.

Double room did not contain a double bed, and was unable to push the singles together due to the wooden frame. So for a couple it’s not ideal.

Pool and lounger area was decent size and clean and very relaxing and can be used between 8am and 8pm

Overall lovely hotel if you don’t mind a walk into town and the AC additional cost has been considered.

My daughter and I stayed here for 5 nights to celebrate my special birthday and we were very happy with our stay The apartment was modern clean and comfortable and had been recently renovated The beds were comfy and the bathroom was lovely with a walk in shower We really appreciated having a full size fridge to store drinks and ice and enjoyed an evening drink on our balcony ( which had lovely views of the mountains and sea)
The pool was a 2 min walk and provided a bar and good choice of well priced food.The staff were all lovely
The apartment is about a 15 min walk into Kos old town so was ideal for us ( though our host insisted on driving us if he saw us walking )There was a small corner shop within 5 mins walk where you could buy essentials. Taxis home from Kos centre cost about 7 euros though we mainly walked
The added value to staying here is without doubt our host Pete He was so very friendly and helpful and put the shine on our stay , Nothing was too much trouble. He very kindly marked my birthday with a lovely surprise . We ate at some great authentic restaurants and visited the better beaches following his recommendations It was good to have knowledgable trusted advise .I would defiantly recommend staying here

The apartment were spotlessly clean , the bed was very comfortable. We didn’t cook anything so I can’t comment on the equipment but it all seemed to be there if needed.
The walk into Kos old town took about 15 minutes. A taxis from the harbour back to the apartment was 7 euros, there was sometimes a small queue but we didn’t wait long .
The pool area is shared with the apartments next door as is the bar area. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful and the food was freshly cooked and reasonably priced.
The real star of the place had to be the manager/owner Pete. He meet us from the taxis as we arrived from the airport with a cold drink and a welcoming smile . Nothing was to much trouble he arranged a hire car for us , trios we asked for and even dropped us off in the town in the evening on some occasions. The man works extremely long hours and yet always had a smile for every guest and even remembers your name ! Service like that is not found everywhere and I can understand why he had so much repeat business.
I would recommend the apartments whole heartedly. Kos is a beautiful island and if it’s an option I would also recommend a car to see the full island .
We enjoyed our stay very much and I’m sure we will be back again one day. Thanks to Pete and all the staff for making us so welcome .

We stayed at Gelli apartments for 12 nights. The apartment was fabulous and had been recently renovated. It was absolutely spotless. It was actually too hot to sit on the balcony so Pete, the owner, set up a table at the entrance door where we took breakfast every morning.

Talking about Pete (Panagiotis) he was exceptionally helpful, kind and informative. He gave us recommendations of where to visit, restaurants and beaches. Thank you Pete.

Apartment is 10 minute walk from Kos Old Town and 15 minutes from the harbour.

Highly recommended.

From start to finish we had fantastic hosts, Pete is a bit strange though, only kidding, what an amazing, friendly & happy bloke, he made our stay wonderful.
The apartments we stayed in are modern and extremely well looked after, very clean and comfortable with great facilities. Small bottle of red wine and bowl of fruit in your room on arrival was a wonderful little gesture.
The apartments are about a 15 min walk to Kos old town, this did not bother us at all and it was a nice walk down a country like lane. I'm always sceptical of reviews but i can honestly say that the ones for Gelli Apartments are all spot on and i have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this place. Thanks to everyone there, big love. Tim

Stayed for one week at Gelli Apartments. Lovely clean apartment which has recently been renovated. Pool and bar area was very nice and food available throughout the day. The biggest positive for us were how friendly and accommodating the staff were. Pete was so helpful even picking us up from the beach and giving us the best recommendations for places to visit and eat that we would not have been able to find ourselves. Thanks again, Dominic & Kerry :-)

Fantastic stay at Gelli apartments!! We were in Kos at a big all inclusive and decided to stay on for 3 more days, wishing to stay near Kos town in an apartment so we could see more of the ‘real’ Kos. We made the perfect choice selecting Gelli.
Pete the owner was fantastic, contacted us before we arrived and the welcome was warm and informative giving us info on where to eat and drink, the sites and any trips we could take.
The accommodation is outstanding, very modern, has all amenities needed and brand new comfy beds. The pool area is great, and offers a bar and snacks. All staff are so friendly and there’s a lovely vibe to the area. Kos town is only a 10 minute walk away but Pete dropped us off each night, thanks!
We were so pleased we decided to stay on and felt the last part of our trip was more enjoyable and authentic because of Pete and the Gelli apartments!! 5 stars

I stayed for only two nights there, a big mistake. The stuff there is amazing (greet to my Malakas Steve and Steve) they gave me so many great recommendations f.e. restaurants (btw. best seafood in my life) and other sights. After a long day go to the bar and you will feel so warm welcomed. The boss (don't remember his name SORRY) is taking care of you than no one else will do. So friendly and kind that's unbelievable as well.

You will find really cleaned apartments and everything around what you need (Supermarket, Pool, a playground for kids) just everything.

Big Thank you guys for this amazing stay.

I stayed in 1 of the newer apartments. It is a lovely apartment with good air conditioning, good WiFi and a lovely bed. Panagiotis is the friendly and helpful owner who will help you with all your questions. There is a nice pool with good sunbeds and a bar to get a drink and snack with friendly staff. The apartments are a little further from the center but this is very easy to do on foot or by bike. I had a wonderful stay.

Certo che si, questo e molto di più: il Pana appena arrivi ti da il suo numero di cellulare e per qualsiasi problema tu possa avere durante il soggiorno lui ti porta e viene a prenderti ovunque. Credimi io ho viaggiato molto ma una persona così disponibile non l'ho mai incontrata.
