“Magic Mythos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Just got back from Tigaki on Kos. Stayed at the Mythos Apartments - superb! Everyone was so friendly. The apartments were spotlessly clean as was every public area. The food at the Mythos was excellent and a fair price. The resort itself was great - loads of places to eat and drink. Every meal we had was outstanding. The beach was lovely - clean, warm clear shallow water. The donut man was a good laugh and Andreas who had some of the sunbeds was the nicest bloke you could meet - he also worked at one of the bars in the evening. After returning from the beach each evening my wife and I always stopped off at the Ipenema bar for a quick apres beach drink - very relaxing - no music, no TV just a really frierndly owner who would appear as if by magic and served the coldest coldest beer in an iced glass - lovely! Night-life is pretty low key but this is what we went for. Booked 3 trips from a local operator - they were very well organised and priced fairly too. Can't wait to return next year.

Room Tip: Rooms on the inside overlook the pool whilst rooms on the outside don't have a pool view but may...

Stayed a week but wish we could of stayed longer! Looking to go back as we loved it so much.
Clean spacious apartment, number 25 with view to the beach. Staff were ultra friendly, Kostas, the evening bar man was brilliant, I almost drank the cocktail menu!
Apartments were cleaned daily.
Only a five min walk to the beach which is lovely, €6 gets you two sun beds and a parasol.
Vasilis restaurant at the front of the Mythos is fantastic too... Great value and the best pizzas!
Highly recommended and can't wait to return.

My wife and I have just returned from a fortnight at Mythos, and enjoyed every minute of it. The apartments are clean and modern. We had room 1. which is on the ground floor and has sea views from the balcony. All the staff are friendly and helpful and Costas the barman was a good laugh and served great drinks.The Vasillis restaurant which is attached to the apartments served good food at a reasonable price. As promised the Mythos is literally 2 minutes walk to the beach.This is the first time I have put a review on trip advisor but it was such a good holiday they thoroughly deserve a good review.

Just got back from the Mythos in Tingaki. had a fantastic time. Apartments are clean, spacious and nicely decorated. Air con was fab, we had a sea view (room 36) Staff were very friendly and the taverna at the front of the Mythos is amazing, best food in resort. Tingaki is a lovely resort, We went to the right of the beach away from tavernas and water sports, beds much more spread out here and always quiet.

Room Tip: 1st floor rooms away from pool area are quietist, room 36 has a sea view

we visited as a family of 4 for the first two weeks in July. Having read the great reviews on TripAdvisor we were expecting things to be top notch and we were not disappointed :-)

We arrived at around10:30pm and received a warm welcome, and within a few minutes were shown up to our room - we requested a top floor 2-bed apartment with a pool view and were allocated room 40. The room was spotlessly clean although rather warm so within a few minutes of arriving I was back down to pay for air con!

Just before 11pm we were seated in the attached restaurant (Vassilis) where we all had a very nice meal before heading up to bed. despite the music in the pool bar we were not disturbed, and had a wonderful nights sleep in the much cooler rooms.

it did not take long to really like and enjoy the Mythos, the pool was very clean with lots of sunbeds, the bar was perfect for a snack and a drink through the day. The bar staff were very friendly, "morning" Kostas always greeted us with a smile and a warm hello every morning (as did all the staff), and "evening" Kostas soon induced himself and quickly got to know all of the new arrivals.

There has been a lot written in other reviews about the friendly atmosphere and we can only agree! The Mythos has been one of the best hotels we've stayed at, due as much to the efforts of the staff and the fantastic laid back vibe. Even when we had a small problem on a Sunday morning (when we started leaking water from one of the AC units) it was sorted within 30 minutes.

The Monday night BBQ was brilliant, so much so that we immediately re-booked for the following week. We also took part in the quiz for a bit of a laugh but somehow managed to win so were treated to 4 cocktails from Kostas. We are not normally cocktail drinkers, but Kostas soon managed to find a few some combinations that we happily drank for the rest of our stay :-)

We have boys of 8 and 11, and were initially worried that they may be a bit too boisterous for the other guests (there were no other children of their age staying the first week, and only a few younger children and teenagers the second week), but although we were on edge occasionally they were fine and hopefully did not upset too many guests with their water polo games!

Tigaki itself was excellent, fantastic beach. We spent most beach days over at the King Size Beach Bar where we would take advantage of their complimentary beach loungers and umbrellas providing we stayed for lunch. Again the attentive and very friendly staff and the relaxed vibe were perfect for us.

Evenings were spent in the many Tavernas around the town, and we enjoyed good food where ever we went. We would stop off for a drink or two in one of the bars before heading back to the Mythos for a few more drinks while the boys played pool.

We spent a day at the waterpark (great if you have kids or are just kids at heart), another day we jumped on the bus to visit Kos Town. We did a full day on the trip to Nissyros, my boys are fascinated by volcanoes so this was a must see! We also spent an evening in Zia and ten sunset did not disappoint!!

Perhaps the best thing I can say about the Mythos is that I've rarely come back from holiday thinking I would like to go back again, there is too much of the world to see. However we will definitely be be returning to the Mythos next year as soon as we can get the booking made. In fact if things work out we may even be back again in October too!! So if "evening" Kostas is reading the reviews then make sure you get a decent single malt ready (preferably a Dalwhinnie or similar) and we'll share a dram or two next time :-)

I've just returned from my 2 week stay at the mythos apartments and i can safely say we had a great time. 7 of us stayed there and we all had an excellent time. We arrived early in the morning, and when we arrived at reception the man there couldnt do enough for us. He gave us our key, located us to our rooms and gave us a warm welcoming. When we arrived at our rooms me and my family we more than impressed. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment with a balcony looking over the pool and that's what we were given. The rooms are very large and there's enough room for 10 people!!! We had a sofa bed and a main double bed. The main bedroom being very spacious. The rooms were cleaned everyday apart from a Sunday. The maids were very kind and were always very talkative. George (the owner) was also very kind and so were all his staff. The drinks at the bar were at a reasonable price and we were given the best service. There were 2 kostas' but we only met and spoke to the night one. He learned everyone's names, knew what they were drinking and would give you a warm welcoming and make you feel at home. Normally bar staff just serve you then go sit down, but kostas didnt. He'd stand there and talk to you which my family and i found very nice. The restaurant which is attached to the mythos apartments is called 'vasillis'. Also, the staff there were very kind and couldn't do enough for you. Food prices were very low and we had a good value for money. The family we stayed with were in a room also looking out at the pool but they were at the bottom. Obviously not having much of a view but it was always lovely and cool there in the nights. Nothing to complain about.
As a whole we all had an excellent time, i would deffinatley recommend this hotel/apartments to anyone. And I will be returning x

Just returned from the Apartments and can't fault them. Very clean, with views of the sea from the one bedroom apartments. The staff were excellent and the food at the pool bar and in the restaurant good value and always superb. I would recommend opting for half board when you get there.
