Sunshine, Temperatures, Lots to Do!

Quite Lively, Airport

I have finally recovered enough from my heartbreak upon leaving Kos almost 5 weeks ago now (a blow slightly lessened by the fact my boyfriend’s taking me to Majorca in just over a week!) to be able to write (or boast) about how beautiful it was and how it’s such a great holiday location. Now in...

the shingle beach

Kos is a Greek island in the Dodecanese, next to the Gulf of Kos which with a population of roughly 22,000. The island was once ruled by the Venetian and this is evident in many of the Kos Town buildings. Kos Town is a marvelous mix of history, nightlife and culture and is an excellent location...

“Kos! The place to be”

published 21/07/2008

Beautiful place!

none!

This review is only information I have from my recent holiday in Greece, Kos. Returning back from Kos, a few weeks ago was heartbreaking! I only wish now, that I had never come home. I stayed in the Imperial hotel in Kos town for 2 weeks with Thomas Cook. Only 2 minute walk from all the...

Did I say breeze? Do you know, I didn’t realize how strong the wind would be – you know, the wind that blows throughout the summer months amongst the islands of the Dodecanese. As I write, I am sat out on the balcony of my apartment on the island of Kos. We have just berthed in the harbor at...

“Holiday of our Dreams”

none

Before you book a holiday to somewhere you have never been before, there are a few things pretty much everyone wants to know. Is it expensive? Is it value for money? Is it a quiet resort or an active resort? What's the nightlife like? What are the best days out? What is there to do? I will try to...

Packed in Summer,do not book with Manos!

In early 2007 I began looking for a holiday as a few friends (all students aged 18-19) and I had decided we wanted to get away for a while. The usual 'young persons drinking holidays' came up, such as Zante, Magaluf, and Faliraki, but the thought of going to a really rowdy place like Faliraki...

A long way from Kardemna

Two weeks is never long enough

I must say I have read this review on Kefalas and thought that I had been to a different place altogether this year. Robert and I traveled to Kos September 07 and only came back Oct 07. As we stayed in Kefalos at the Pantheon just along from the big Club Med, (well up the hill from there). We had...

“THE JEWEL OF THE AEGEAN”

published 23/08/2002

it's paradise!

perhaps a little too quiet for some

I'm back for a second attempt at holiday writing ~ this one has been harder because this holiday seems like so long ago! We visited Kos in May 2001. The holiday was for a week only ~ but we were excited because it was my first time abroad, and one of the first for my parents. Because we were only...

“Kos it's so beautiful”

published 05/04/2001

beautiful beaches, laid back, cheap to eat out

nightlife only in resorts and hotels

I’d never been to any of the Greek Islands before we visited Kos three years ago. We stayed in Kardamena, a small resort – a former quiet fishing port, but it has been transformed in recent years into a fairly lively place with good nightlife and a fantastic beach. Usually when we go...

“Autumn Sunshine.”

friendly people, good nightlife, value for money.

none.

Last year I went on holiday to the Greek island of Kos, which is in the Aegean sea and is just off the coast of Turkey. I went with one friend and we stayed at the Anastasia Aparthotel in Kos town, which is the capital of Kos. We booked our 7 night bed and breakfast holiday with the tour operator...

Cheap food and beer. Great weather. Loads to do

Night flights. Wine quality variable.

We took a 2 week holiday in Kos last May (2000) We stayed in Kardamena. In short, it was the best holiday we've ever had! We booked it through Co-Op Travelcare and paid £270 each (inc insurance). The tour operator was Kosmar and we stayed at the Cleopatra Apartments. Kardamena is a lovely resort...

People of Kos don't seem to like tourists, Windy

Me and my boyfriend went to Kefalos in Kos this year on our first holiday together. It took us a while to decide if this was where we wanted to go but for the price we couldn't refuse. We paid £179.00 each for a week self catering. We stayed at Kefalos Studios. Our Apartment was very basic, had a...
