Fili Apartments
Ranked #11 of 24 Hotels in Tigaki
Reviewed July 8, 2011

After a dreadful start at another apartment complex, we arrived at the Fili to find the family run establishment was warm and welcoming. Paul and his daughter Fili and his wife are all very friendly and helpful and genuinely enjoy what they do. Sophia is also a lovely girl and very welcoming.
The rooms are clean and bright and airy.
The Fili is slightly further out than other apartments, but the bus stop is a 2 minute walk and the beach is 5-10 mins away.
I would recommend this place highly to families and couples. It is quite small so therefore makes your holiday more intimate, more personal. I would definitley go back here....

Fili has the usual very basic rooms normal in Greece. The rooms however are a reasonable size and the windows to the balcony include insect screens which allows fresh air in without the dreaded mosquitoes. The kitchen equipment is extremely basic and although there is an electric kettle the only possible power point is located above the kitchen sink - potentially dangerous. The safe boxes cost ten euros a week and are inconveniently not in the room but at reception. Aircon is an extra 5 euros a day but we did not have to use it as the insect screens allowed us to keep the room cool naturally.
There are three pools: a toddlers, a fun pool and a traditional pool for us old codgers to swim up and down in. The pool and bar areas are kept exceptionally clean.
The bar has basic food and drink options and is good value. Service is mixed but the young waitress works exceptionally hard.
The location is almost two miles from the centre of Tigaki. There is however the terminus of the bus route to Kos at the apartment road end. 1.60 euros to Tigaki, 2 to Kos. It takes 35-40 minutes to walk in.
There is a good taverna, Ampelli round the back of the hotel - just take the track beside the apartments entrance and keep to the left.
Cycling is popular on Kos as it is so flat, costing from 4 euros a day. Car hire about 25 euros day from Sevi along the road. Many of the ancient sites on Kos are rather neglected and only of specialist interest, apart from the Askilapeon which is well worth a visit.

we wanted a cheap last min holiday for me my partner and my 3 year old kids. this was a great pick as it was not that busy so i was not worried about the kids on the beach. the beach is only a 2min walk from the fili apartments. the rooms were very clean, the staff are really nice. paul the manager went out his way to make sure everyone was enjoying their time at the fili apartments. the food was brill, very cheap. me and my partner are going back for our honeymoon next year, really looking forward to it. its a 40min walk from the town and a 15 min taxi drive to kos town. we like to walk so wasnt a hassle for us

My husband and I stayed at the Fili Apartments in October 2010 and what a pleasure it was. The bed linen and towels were changed every other day and the room cleaned every day. We had not booked a room with a sea view but Paul (the owner) gave us one which we were delighted with. Paul and his wife were excellent hosts and even put up with our love of football and found games for us to watch. Paul, we apologise if we were a little noisy when Manchester City scored! The Fili apartments are clean, the bar and food area is pleasant overlooking one of the pools. The apartments are a little out of Tingaki, a good twenty minute walk but this is along the sea road with bars and restaurants to call into if you get thirsty. We could not fault the Fili and would not hesitate in returning which we hope to do.

Kids 15 and 13, Husband and myself-we arrived with no-one to greet us, we had to find the room, hand drawn map on door for us to find the room, key in door. The room was awful, dirty sheets, spider webs in shower with insects stuck in them, insects in cupboard, tiny, tiny room, horrible holiday-so bad we paid extra to be moved to another apartment, we read the other reviews, we thought it was going to be great, big mistake.

Managed to get cheap deal to Kos and the Fili, this is the 17th time at Apostolos,s (Paul) place and once again we had a brilliant time, Paul and wife Eleni worked extremely hard all the time we were there, and welcome you as if you are old friends.I cannot recomend the Fili highly enough having been going there since 1997.Also as written on this site Theokritos travel also come highly recomended, Louise and Nikos work all hours and seem to make everything go smoothly and without a hitch.Well thats my ten 10p worth ,Fili ideal for a quiet hol on Kos in fact going back in a few weeks time,No relation to any of the above, just a very happy customer.

this was our first trip to Kos and we really enjoyed the simplicity of the island. the apartment suited our needs but was more basic than anticipated and although towels were changed every other day i am not sure about the bed linen. the bathroom was tiny and the shower head had a mind of its own which often resulted in much of the room swimming in water after showering! the temperature at night was fine so there was no need for air con. we paid for a safe for the week (ten euros) and kept the room on till 9pm on our last day (25 euros). the food was ok and reasonably priced but more uk fair than greek. the sunsets from the beach were amazing as was the beach itself. you could hire two sunbeds and umbrella for the day for 5 euros. lots of traders would appear at lunch time near the beach selling fresh fruit, ice cream and doughnuts. all in all we thoroughly enjoyed our break but would probably stay eslewhere next time
