We don't normally return to the same place twice for our holidays but next year will be an exception when we return to the Mayflower. In a tranquil setting on the outskirts of Tigaki the only sounds at the side of the pool were those of laughter and the odd dog barking in the local small holding. The welcome we received was lovely and our room preference had been noted and acted upon and Elia was only too delighted to accommodate our needs. Both she and her husband and son, Kosta and Christos (who works all evening until the bar closes at 2.00a.m.) were so kind and helpful and Kosta too (Elia's husband). Our son was poorly whilst we were on holiday and their concern was always for him and whether he was able to still enjoy his time away.
The room was kept clean and tidy (with maid service 6 days a week) with frequent changes of towels and bedding. It was light and airy with plenty of space for the family and sufficient kitchen amenities to meet our needs. Air conditioning was available at €9 per day, which was well worth it!
A particular highlight was the personal touch around the bar, thoughout the day and evening, with excellent food and drink. Both Elia and Christos were proud to recommend things to do and place not to miss and were happy to chat about their family and culture. Not to be missed is the weekly barbeque and Greek Evening, hosted by the family. Kosta's barbeque was some of the best food we ate whilst on Kos! The Greek dancers were amazing but no-one felt forced to join in. If you did though it was great fun!
Dave, our Thomson rep, was extremely helpful and enthusiastic and another highlight of the holiday must be his Quiz Night which brought all the guests in this small hotel together in a relaxed and informal setting. Indeed, the intimacy of the hotel again added to the overall enjoyment of the holiday, enabling us to get to know other families staying with us.
