“Spectacular views, friendly staff, we loved the Apellis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2008

The Apellis is situated on the outskirts of Lambi approximately 2 miles from the centre of Kos town.

This hotel is quiet, friendly and has spectacular panoramic views of other Greek Islands and the Turkish main land.

All the rooms come with bed & breakfast, the rooms have a small bathroom, a balcony, they have two single beds, a dressing table, built in wardrobe and a fridge, they are basic but comfortable, The rooms are cleaned daily with sheets and towels changed approximately every three days.

The bus stop into town is situated right outside the hotel, the fare is only 1 euro to Dolphin Square, buses run frequently right through to the early hours of the morning.

We hired a bike from one of the many hire shops this also was really good value for money at only 2 euros a day, tandems were also available as well as plastic child seats which attach to the back of the bike (at extra cost)

The day reception staff and cleaners are warm & friendly, the lady (I'm really sorry we did not get your names) in the Apellis pool snack bar is a gem, she speaks little English but manages to understand everything you say to her, she has an absolutely amazing laugh.

The pool snack bar is open from 11am until 8pm, the menu is not extensive however it is well cooked & resonably priced.

From 4pm until 12 midnight you have the evening receptionist Snezana & her husband Jorgos (you must try one of his amazing cocktails) they are a fabulous couple who are only too happy to advise & assist you on all the best places to visit & eat (you must try the Creten restaurant at the bottom of the steps that lead up to the church with three blue & one white cross in Kos town)

The island is very small, we found that we only needed to hire a car for three days, you must visit, The Thermes (hot springs) and look for the car high up in the rocks. Zia is a must to see the sun set.

Overall the hotel is quiet, friendy & very clean, it has a clean pool and is set in lovely grounds in addition the staff are wonderful.

We will be going back.
