Fili Apartments
Ranked #12 of 24 Hotels in Tigaki
Reviewed July 18, 2013

My family spent a very pleasant week at the apartments, yes they are dated and the plumbing is typically Greek, yes they could do with updating the apartments, but, the staff are all very friendly. The location is a pleasant 30 minutes walk to the centre of town on a flat road but the plus side is peace and quiet. The beach is only 3 minutes walk, my son loved the pool with the slide which worked perfectly well and with a bit of effort you can get quite a bit of speed up coming down it, as others have said the second pool is quite often only used by one or two people and is much quieter. You must visit the small taverna at the back of the hotel (the track to it literally runs along the back of the property on the other side of the wall from the swimming pools), fantastic and very reasonably priced food and excellent wine that they produce themselves. The food at Fili apartments was OK as were the drinks. Wifi free and available in the bar area, quite slow but at least it works This is the 8th Greek island I have stayed on and it is not over commercialised, yes all you want in the way of bars and tavernas but no high rises. There is a good sized supermarket in the town but the small hotel at the end of the approach road to the fili aparts does have a well stocked mini market with fresh bread deliveries made every morning. Overall I agree that the apartments are probably worthy of only 2 stars but they are kept very very clean as are all of the public areas. I would recommend a stay here, we had a lovelly time, oh don't forget your mossy spray and insect bite cream they do come out at night. Bottom line - you get what you pay for and we paid only just over 1k with Jet 2 holidays for B&B for a week for 2 apartments for 4 of us in July 2013. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Get a sea view we did

Fantastic 2 week holiday at Fili Apatments,rooms basic but cleaned every day,towels and bedding every other day.Paul the owner,his family and staff are very hard working friendly and helpful.We ate there most nights and enjoyed every meal and the atmosphere in the bar was great.The beach is 5 min walk,Tingaki is a lovely 20 min walk or you can catch a bus every hour.We'd love to go back and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Nice and quiet location (300mt from the sea with view), 2.5km from lovely tigaki town, the sea in front is not the best because the beach is small, you may need a bicycle or scooter, but it's relaxing place, 2 swimming pool, nice bar, good and cheap food, the staff is very kind and helpful, good size apartments, with what you need and expect for a cheap hotel. Very good value for money, room cleaned well every second day. I recommend it for low budget and people who want to visit the island.

Room Tip: better fist floor than the ground floor, the sea view is often covered by trees...

My partner Stelios and I stayed in Fili apts for 2 weeks. Everything was excellent. Lovely clean apts and friendly atmosphere. The apartments are very close to the beach and the local bus will take you into the centre or Kos Town very cheaply or you can hire a car/bike and park free in the hotel car park. We are returning in October. Highly recommended !

Very clean apps. Run well by friendly staff. Excellent food and reasonably priced. Apps are approx 2kms from tingaki square with a nice walk along sea front or by bus every hour. There is also a bar in the complex good prices. Amstel 3 euros for a large bottle. Would recommend them to anybody.

You can't really go wrong here, the owner and his wife are perfect hosts and the staff are all friendly, the food and bar are excellent value, rooms are basic and comfortable, spotlessly clean. Watch out for the change in t-shirts Paul (the owner) wears when he's behind the bar. The guests at the apartments are a mix of all European nationalities, the beach is only a couple of hundred yards away, the village of Tigaki is about 35 minutes walk, but the bus at the end of the drive is regular about 20 minutes past the hour and costs €1.60 or €2 if you go to Kos Town. You should hire bikes or some other form of transport if you don't want to walk, there are plenty of lovely restaurants in Tigaki. You need to try the Ampeli restaurant just at the back of the Fili Apartments, where the brother of Paul provides very good fare and in true Greek style for lunch or evening meal.

We stayed at the fili in August last year. At first I was a little disappointed as the room was quite small with just one small cupboard/wardrobe between four of us. However we soon learned to adapt and enjoy the surroundings. The two pools were really nice, one was quieter than the other so you had your choice. The pool bar really made this holiday. The food was great and the staff were absolutely brilliant! We spent quite a few evenings here as it was so friendly and relaxing. Looking back I wished we had hired bikes for the duration. We hired them for a day towards the end of our holiday and realised it would have given us a bit more choice on going to beaches and restaurants.We caught the bus into town a few times as it was a long walk - probably 40-45 mins.There is a lovely taverna behind the complex which we visited a couple of times called the Ampelia, well worth a visit.
