We booked a last minute package with Thomas Cook for a week from Gatwick. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are the most comfortable that I have ever stayed in in Greece, all have balcony or terrace, most with a sea view and are large with great air conditioning. Built on the sea facing side of a steep hill the rooms are chalet style and are serviced by a long spiralling road of several hundred meters from reception to the top, so the higher the room number the further up the hill and the more spectacular your view. They have a 24 hour mini bus service if you prefer not to walk to and from your room. We went half board and the food was high in quality and varied enough for us not to feel the need to go outside the hotel for a change. You pay for your lunch and for all drinks which are roughly English prices. The waiters and bar staff are really friendly. There are a team of young entertainers who keep kids entertained and run volleyball, water aerobics etc for the adults which is good fun if you have the energy! They have a beach at the foot of the hotel which is serviceable, but costs 7 Euros per day if you want to hire a couple of longers and a parasol. The evening entertainment is a bit naff, but we didn't go there to be entertained so I wouldn't mark them down for that. We caught the local bus in to Kos Town, well worth going to if you want to spend the day wandering the back streets shopping, eating and drinking and watching the World go by; there are also some ancient ruins to look at. We also did a days boat trip called the 3 island tour which was great if you like lying around on deck sunbathing. Overall the Aegean Village is thoroughly good value for money. everybody who we met had a great time and a lot of praise for the excellent service and facilities. Although officially a 3 star hotel, I would rate it 4 star, and is great for families or for travellers of any age.
