It was our first visit to Kos and would definately return. The food was excellent, the people were more than kind. Plenty to see and do, when reading some of the comments I thought it was going to be a little too quiet for us but there is plenty of fun for all, however, the resort is more suited towards families. 18 - 30s certainly would not like it here. The beach is unspoilt. Good views of a couple of other islands and Turkey. The sea is gently shelving and can get choppy but only when the breeze gets higher. The breeze is a god send and out of the two weeks only one day was the breeze quite strong. It was 35 - 40 degrees thoughout the two weeks but it was easy enough to handle this is thanks again to the onshore breeze. There are plenty of bars and restaurants to chose from depending on whether you want a quiet drink or a bit of a dance. I wouldn't say that there are any real disco's although there are a couple of dance bars, here you can dance out in the back room however they are not very big. If you are a family and are thinking of going to Tigaki then please try it you will love it.

Kos Town was very pleasing to us all. We enjoyed walking around the shops, sitting outside the bars in the old town watching the world go by. It's a beatiful place to sit in one of the harbour cafe's and people watch. It is well worth having a trip on the little train as it takes you to areas that you probably wouldn't visit otherwise. We had a fantastic meal in the old town in an Italian restaurant, I think the name of it was 8 1/2, it was opposite a bar on a corner which a lot of the young greek people used. Plenty to see and do here, I found the waiters a bit of a pain trying to pull you into their restaurants however you have to learn to ignore them or say no thank you and just keep walking.
Great for either a day or your whole holidays. If there is a breeze make sure you don't burn as this is easy to do. The sea gently shelves out however it can get quite choppy all depending on how strong the breeze is. Don't be put off by the breeze as it is a god send at times. The sand is corse and gets very hot indeed. There are many places along the beach for you to have a shower or to wash your feet. Be careful as you will find if the hose pipe for washing your feet is quite long then the water that has been lying inside it gets to reach boiling point, as I discovered when I burnt my feet under it. So let the water run for a minute until it runs cold. The top end of the beach towards the salt lakes is a nudist beach so be careful how far you wander if your not into this, it can be embarassing as my husband discovered, he told me that he had just seen his grandmother naked on the beach and was now feeling quite ill.
This is a nice little bar to have a drink either before or after your meal in the evening. It is nice for people watching and the drinks are quite good in comparison to some of the places. Comfortable chairs and a good waitress service.
There are safety deposit boxes in these apartments, there is a well stocked supermarket next door to the apartments with almost every essential and their not too pricey. If you walk up the town to the very top of the main strip on the right hand side you will see a large supermarket you can get everything here but it is quite a long walk, I would say the one next door would be surfice for any family.
