We booked this holiday after asking Thomson for somewhere in Greece that's quiet, close to the beach and not too expensive.
Not knowing anything about the area we looked at the brilliant reviews of the hotel, but weren't expecting it to be so perfect for us. It was busy but quiet at the same time! Every room was occupied but you could go down to the pool or garden at any time of the day and no one had reserved a sun bed, and there was always plenty free. The bar area was also fairly busy but not rowdy, and the place seemed to attract nice guests looking for a nice peaceful holiday.
The location was great, a stones throw from a lovely beach, and we even had a sea view from our massive balcony. There's a nice taverna across the road called Efkalipty, a few more round the corner and some nice beach bars which served good and also reasonably priced food - we found the best restaurant in the area to be Filarakia, about a mile away on the beach. On an excursion to the beautiful mountain village of zia we passed through Tigaki, Marmari and a couple of other resorts, and the hotels looked okay but in the middle of nowhere and not really In walking or cycling distance to anything any good, so We found Lambi very good being far enough away from Kos town to be quiet, but close enough if you want more shops and nightlife at just a 15 min walk away. There was a good and cheap supermarket called Konstantinos at the end of the street.
There were two hard working cleaners that cleaned the rooms every day. We found all of the staff lovely and friendly, we didn't meet George but Barbara, Elias and Maria were great, and the cook Ella was particularly nice and attentive. Everything was clean, the pool was lovely and well kept, and the facilities were very good and food nice.
Kos was a fantastic holiday, something for everyone, and at Alice Springs it's peaceful but close to the beautiful Kos town and harbour. You can hire a bike for about 3€ a day or a car for 25, although the crazy Greek driving put us off, it's still very cheap!
Overall we had a brilliant time and will hopefully be going back to Alice Springs next year, maybe for an extra week because one wasn't enough!
