The aparthotel is on the main road in Tigaki about 10 minutes walk from the beach. It's all very clean and modern. Our room was immaculate and equipped with an oven and grill in addition to the usual hob. There was a large fridge and decent freezer too. The room was serviced every other day, which is plenty. The pool area has loads of loungers around the large pool and again it's kept immaculately clean. The pool bar serves a good range of snacks at very reasonable prices. The hotel bar is no dearer than the local tavernas and residents gather inside and outside into the early hours. We wouldn't look anywhere else if we returned.
Adonis, the owner, speaks very little English but enjoys a bit of mime and his daughters speak fluent English anyway so communication is not an issue.
Kos generally. We found it surprisingly colourful given the time of year. That said, it does not have anything other Greek islands do not, so whilst we enjoyed our visit any further visits would be for a quick one week break rather than a main holiday. Not everyone would share that view, we met one couple for whom it was their 14th visit. The airport is a joke even by Greek island standards but maybe we hit it on a bad day. It was upsetting to see the number of businesses closed down due to the economic problems.
Tingaki. The lovely sandy beach is extensive and the water is very shallow so it's ideal for children. Being awkward, we like to swim and didn't enjoy wading half way to Bodrum but most people wouldn't object. It does get very windswept at times.
Restaurants. There are lots of them and we had mixed experiences. Nowhere was poor, just one where a swordfish steak could have doubled as a flip-flop and one, Plori, which was over-priced and unexceptional despite being recommended in a guide book. Our favourite was the Sunshine which is behind the Kalloudis near the bakery. It is sheltered from the wind, offers great food and the daughters who do the waitressing make everyone welcome.
Trips. There is a travel agent towards the beach called Theokritos. The owner's wife is English which makes things doubly easy. We did the Island Tour which we thought was a great day out much enhanced by Costas the guide. The Greek Night was also very good ( I usually hate them ). The 3 Island boat trip was very popular but beware if you don't like too much sun; there is very little shade on the boats so we skipped this one. Buses run every hour to Kos Town and cost E2 each. The castle is well worth a visit. The lady in Theokritos recommended a restaurant in Kos Town; take her advice !! Lots of people hired bikes.
Shopping. There is a large supermarket called Constantinos which stocks pretty well everything and is much cheaper than the minimarkets. It's about 5 minutes from the Kalloudis going away from the beach. On the way there is a little stall where you can buy home grown fruit and veg.
Summary. We had a lovely relaxing time in Tigaki and we think most people would like Kos.
