We came back from staying at the pelagos in july/aug 2006 we thought it was excellent. The hotel itself was fantastic rooms cleaned everyday, bedding and towels changed every day if you required. You also got provided with pool towels, safety deposit boxes free of charge too. All the staff were very friendly and helpful (especailly vassiles). There was entertainment on during the day and evening ,quizes, games, waterpolo etc and evenings karaoke, greek night, quiz night and lots more!! we also enjoyed a few games of tennis which was 7euros for an hour.
I am so excited my Husband and I and our 6 year old son are going to Pegalos Apartments Kos on the 24th August with our bestest Mates and their daughter who is turning 13 out there. My question is this. Any ideas what we could do for a 13th birthday. What is the average meal cost and drinks. Roll on the 24th August. Thanks in advance for your help. PS will update on what we thought.
Just got back from 2 weeks at the Pelagos and had a fantastic time! We were in self catering (yes we had a kettle!) and had a lovely balcony overlooking the pool. The hotel was one of the cleanest Ive ever been to and the staff very helpful (just watch out for vasilis the bar man - see through the charm - likes to humiliate his staff in front of customers and not someone you'd want as an enemy).
Well i have just booked to go in july 2006... i have read the comments so far but was just seeing if anyone had any more up to date remarks i am taking my son and daughter 16 and 11yrs and really like the look of these apartments!!! well lets see what happens will get back to you all next year... X
We have just come back from the Pelagos. As a group of male friends looking for a drinking holiday we found it a bit out of the way from bar street but the acomodation and friendliness of the staff more than made up for that (especially as they were willing to put up with us)!. I would give it a definate 10/10. If you are taking your children with you the staff always there to help and think of ways to keep them entertained! If you are looking for somewhere to eat look no further than next door. We didnt find this place until the last day but the food was v. nice and quite cheap! We were all sad to leave this beautiful island and hotel and look forward to returning
My father (78), myself and my son (21), have just returned from the Pelagos Aparthotel, (15th – 22nd June 2005). The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them.
Indeed, I would just like to say a big thank you to all the staff there, especially Katarina the Day Receptionist, Ionnis the Night Receptionist, Tundi (Maria), the Entertainment/Activities Organiser (if I had a daughter, she would be it), Hussain and Vasillias the bar staff (whom I didn’t get chance to say goodbye to), and Illyachs the maintenance man (not that there was anything wrong with our room!), for looking after us and making our holiday a happy and memorable one. (I apologise if I’ve mis-spelled anyone’s name!).
The Pelagos has a lovely free form pool and bar/seating area for relaxing around day or night. The rooms are clean, well sized, well furnished and maintained to a very high standard. Although the Pelagos is just outside
The food at the Pelagos is of a very good standard, with b&b and half-board on offer and can not be faulted. If you are self-catering you can eat at the restaurant as and when you choose or visit the min-market in the hotel or another supermarket just on the next block etc. As my father is rather elderly we opted for the half-board and were not disappointed. They also do special Greek nights and Italian nights, offering a chance to sample different cuisines.
There is excellent entertainment on offer, ranging from quiz nights (if you wish to take part), to a greek organist, greek dancing, belly dancing and a fakir (a man who walks on hot coals/fire eater), which I had been looking forward to watching all week and missed due to being held up returning from a day trip to Turkey – Hmmph!. These were all of a high standard and were well worth staying at the hotel to eat your evening meal and to watch, or just to watch sitting around the pool/bar area, as the entertainment is all-inclusive. They also had daily entertainment for children and 20 mins aqua-aerobics every afternoon for all the people who had eaten too much the night before!
There is so much to see and do on and around Kos, that we didn’t manage to cover everything that we wanted to in one week, i.e. visiting Zia,
I usually like to visit a different place each year and have never returned to the same place twice. However, we had such an enjoyable and relaxing holiday at the Pelagos, that I would not hesitate to recommend the Pelagos to anyone and will certainly be making an exception by returning there, hopefully next year!
access to sites and
Pelagos Aparthotel was lovely the rooms are nice cleanand large , the swimming pool is lovely with plenty of sun beds for all lots of activerties all day and night for young and old ,it is a short walk to the beach maby 5 mins with sunbeds and umbrellas for guests as well as beach volly . Places to eat , there is a nice taverna right next to the hotel called the 3 stars which is nice you can sit looking out at te sea enjoying one of their over sized mythos (beer) . There is a supermarket next door called Marias open 8am till 10:00pm where you can get all your food items bread,milk,veg ect...... nice ppl . Or if you want to go into town the bus is 3.60 euros for two return last bus back 10:00 ish i think but you can get timetable from reception . In town the nicest place we found to eat was a place called Agora resturant which is just behind the market building about 5 mins walk from the harbour bus stop , you sit in the middle of a square under umbrellas , the waiters are nice and freindly and speek meny languages we found it was the only place that did not need to sell itself eg ppl trying to get you to look at menu , try the baked fetter or stuffed potatoes for starters yuuuuummmmeeee , we saw the same ppl in there like us night after night , hehe we all had our own tables . The food in the Pelagos was the most dissapointing they had a buffet which was 12 euros per purson excluding drinks which was quite poor , but this is just our opinion .

Hi My Husband and i will be going to Greece for the first time in September 7th 2005. We are staying at the pelagos. Can anyone tell us if the rooms are nice a clean, and is there everything you need for a self catering holiday. Also were is the best place to eat!
Is there a web address for the Aparthotel Pelagos apartments? I would like to contact them direct but have failed to find an email address or phone number. Thanks
This is a first class hotel and I would highly recommend it to anyone planning to visit Kos. As someone else said on the site, it is easily the best hotel in the area. The staff are extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming, and the facilities are excellent, although possibly a little limited for teenagers. Nice touches include complimentary melon served around the pool, and tea and cake in the afternoon.
It's within easy walking distance of local bars and tavernas, but the but to Kos town stops right outside and takes about five minutes. A taxi into town cost 6 euros, and the receptionist will call one for you, arriving in minutes.
There is a very clear view of the Turkish coast form the hotel (which feels as if its only about ten miles away, as you can see the houses), and there is a beach on the opposite side of the road.
For footie fans, the bar waiter - Vassilis aka Bill ( a real Eric Cantona lookalike and Man U. fan) will keep you updated on all the scores from home!
We had an excellent holiday and would return again.
I've just got back from a holiday to Kos with my parents and my nan. Being 16 and going on holiday with my parents, i thought i was going to have a really bad time but the holiday was the best i have ever been on! The hotel we stayed at, The Pelagos, was by far the best in the area. It was clean, friendly and the service was excellent! With the town only 2km away, a 10 minute trip on the bus is nothing!
The staff at the hotel were really friendly and not once in that 2 weeks did we regret choosing the complex! I'd definately recommend it to anybody, of all ages and i hope to go back next year!
We went to Pelagos last year for two weeks and enjoyed it that much are going back on 2/6/2004 for another two weeks, it will be the first time we have ever gone to the same place twice. The staff are very friendly (look out for Eric Cantona look a like), the service is excellent and they have nice touches like at three in the afternoon they come around with a slice of ice cold melon to freshen you up. The rooms are spotless and fairly well equipped. There is a bus stop just outside reception to take you to town but it is a nice walk and only takes ten minutes to get to bars and restaurants. I would reccomend pelagos to anyone brilliant.
