Labranda Marine Aquapark Resort
Ranked #7 of 24 Hotels in Tigaki
Reviewed September 21, 2012

The hotel is not as near to Tigaki as it is to Kos! Its a 50 minute walk to Tigaki, no buses near the hotel, you have to bus into Kos (1 an hour) and then bus out to Tigaki. It does feel as if the hotel is in the back of beyond. We were there for a week and did bus to Kos three times when we were there and found it very quick. The hotel is good, the wave pool good fun as is the water slides. The beach is very stoney and rocky so we went up to a public beach about 10 minutes walk away. This was very sandy, very clean and had sunbeds to hire at €5 for two. The chap even sold beer, water and soft drinks. At the hotel, the food is good and variable, the bar staff very helpful and polite. As for the rooms, these are cleaned daily except for Sunday. Sunday the chambermaids are off so dont expect any thing to get cleaned, even the loos by the pools. Overall we had a good holiday but would not return there. We would try to get a hotel in Tigaki its self.

Room Tip: Dont go near the reception area as it is very noisy!

I had a lovely time nice room nice food wonderful staff my gripe is about SMOKING went and sat in the undercover part o the restaurant
and found that people were smoking while family's with some very young children were eating
I did complain but was told it was not Hotel policy to stop people smoking in the undercoer area
well I think the hotel should change its policy to NO SMOKING in all parts of the restaurant they are plenty of area's where people can smoke surely its not to much for them to wait or go else where. I am a smoker but I would not dream of smoking while people were eating

Room Tip: ask for a room away from the barpool area as thats where the enterainment is a night

I LOVE Aquis Hotels, I have been to lots all around the Greek Islands – guaranteed TOP quality, great staff and accommodation. Thought we would try the one on Kos! We arranged transfers from the airport with A2B at a cost of £12 return per person. Arrived at hotel after the restaurant had closed after travelling all day were offered sandwiches by very friendly & helpful reception staff which were most welcome! Good wi-fi signal in reception and its FREE!!

ROOM- Taken to our 2 room accommodation, front door led into 1st bedroom which had a put you up bed – (some had bunk beds in), wardrobe with safe enclosed, the bathroom led off from this room – bathroom had bath with overhead shower, sink and loo and pump action soap dispensers in shower and sink – they could do with some shelves to store stuff on though in there. The back bedroom had the air con unit, twin beds , wardrobe, desk, chair, TV, DVD player (take your own DVD’s as hotel selection is 1 euro per DVD, and quite out of date selection!) and bedside tables with alarm clock, phone and patio doors leading onto balcony. Firm support mattresses, lovely clean accommodation, crisp white cotton sheets, spare blankets and pillows in wardrobes.
There were pool towels left on our beds which was handy as the pool towel guy opens from 10am till 1pm up by the shed at the top end of the wave pool. We were given pool towel cards when we checked in too. This hotel runs a ‘no wristband’ all inclusive policy, but we were given credit cards to prove we were guests which must be produced if asked for by staff. We did not get asked once while on hols but carried them just in case.

FOOD - There is a buffet style restaurant right next to reception offering a good variety of foods (and I am a fussy veggie!), absolutely outstanding well-managed and run so efficiently, a huge well done to all the staff and management, spotless restaurant, plates cleared away instantly, food topped up, always hot and clean, well presented, friendly staff, greeted at the door by managers who are very hands on and run a tight ship overseeing staff. They have the patience of saints considering children are running riot in there and usually not under any control of their parents – I was expecting to see an accident as kids run around when people are carrying hot food and drinks, parents obviously feel their kids can have free reign on holiday. Self service soft drinks (quickly ran out of syrup eg coke, diet coke) tea/coffee, beer and wine.

KIDS – this hotel is aimed at families and kids, and I am sure if you are a family with kids you will have a great time! We were an all adult group and felt like we had taken a holiday in a nursery school. Everything is catered for kids and there is no escape or quiet area for adults to escape the screeching, yelling and noise. Even the toilets do NOT lock, so be prepared for lots of people witness you on the loo with your knickers round your ankles, unless you sit with your foot wedged against the door to stop intrusion. It IS a water park so we should have made a better choice but we assumed that in September they would be back at school. Kids were always urinating on the grassy areas around pool although toilets less than 20ft away – parents said and did nothing! So holiday heaven for kids, nightmare for adults just wanting to relax and some peace & quiet!

POOLS – the pools are great – clean well maintained and warm. 3 pools- a kiddie slide fun pool, very shallow, a wave pool, and a lotus pool. Plenty of sunbeds but the ones with parasols were quickly snapped up in the mornings, but if you don’t mind the sun you can always find a bed at anytime. On the 1st day we made our way to the Lotus pool thinking it would be the quiet adult pool as the other 2 were def aimed at kids. Alas this was targeted by dive bombing kids and pool volleyball so not the tranquil oasis of calm we hoped for. The kiddie pool had tiny toddlers and wave pool more adults and youngsters, all very noisy though no quiet areas to relax. Bar is by the wave pool, self serve soft drinks and tea/coffee or alcohol from barmen. Lovely breeze coming on from the sea. Sunbeds on the beach, but very steep incline to sea and rocky.

ANIMATION – mainly French, but then most guests were French, but they translate into English no problem. Always stuff going on but not too pushy!

GETTING ABOUT – taxi from Kos town is 12 euro’s, buses at 10 past every hour into town from the hotel very cheap about 3 euro’s for two people.

SHOP – very reasonable prices at the hotel shop,eg. 200 fags is 38 euro’s, take the lift down from reception. Also a gym and massage down there! Plus if you have a late check out at the back of the gym is a shower/toilet/changing room with towels so no need to pay extra to keep your room!

Summary – great hotel for families, but NOT if you are an adult only party looking for a peaceful relaxing break!

Room Tip: evening entertainment is by the wave pool, so if you want quiet nights - stay away from it!

Great food .... Great service ..... Plenty of sunbeds ..... Right on the beach (not the best beach) 4 star plus! No entertainment ... Well a bit by the reps only... Great if you have kids ..There were 3 large pools and plenty of room by the pool all times.
There was a bus into kos town every hour which took about 15 mins. Well worth taking a trip into bodrum from kos harbour .... Will definitely be returning .

i have just come back from spending 1 week at Aquis Marine and had the best holiday there ever!! I am 19 and went with my boyfriend 20 and two other 19 year olds. the Animation team were brilliant and made our holiday.. weather lovely every day.. pools best ive ever seen and has previously been to 5 star hotels. the lifeguards remember everyones names and are very friendly along with the bar staff. food was very good lots of variety each day and all inclusive drinks are from the pool bar or indoor bar until 11pm then u pay until 1am- which is not a bad thing atall as most all inclusive hotels close their bars alltogether at 10/11pm. the entertainment was brilliant every evening and although they spoke alot in French they ALWAYS translated into English and asked where the majority of the audience was from so that all languages could be spoken. rooms were clean and spacious and cleaned every day. small supermarket in hotel with everything you need in. enormous wave pool turned on every hour, regular relaxing pool and amazing kids pool with flumes and slides which are good enough for adults. beach is nice does have some pebbles but a 5 minute walk to the left and there is a complete sandy beach. hotel was very busy as is popular but never struggled to find a place to sit by the pool or at meal times. Animation team were the best and every half an hour announced an activity such as water polo, aqua gym, table tennis, coctail games.. was really EXCELLENT! best holiday we have all had and very very sad to leave. 5 min taxi journey into Tigaki if you want to go to a restaurant or to the bars/clubs. all members of staff especially bar staff, lifeguards and animation team very friendly. BRILLIANT HOLIDAY CANNOT WAIT TO BOOK FOR NEXT YEAR!!!!

i was dissapointed with this hotel no snack bar for the kids during the day, all annimation and kids club in french, hotel was full of french guests some very rude!! we did find out that it was a french run hotel (FRAM) while there.in the middle of no where and costs around £20 return to get into kos town.
pools very good and the lifeguards are fantastic and a credit to this hotel. rooms were cleaned daily, a little dated.
Food was very repetative, and the restaurant very busy at times we had to wait for a table on a evening and the restaurant staff were very miserable!
my son was 8 years old and they would not let him join in football or darts as you had to be over the age of 14 years old!!!!!!!!
i would not recommend this hotel if you are English.

would not go back again. if your french your ok. the animation entertainment was really bad. the kids club was just as bad the bairns were bored senseless. the food was good but the restaurant manager was so miserable. the rooms were spotless as were the grounds the pools were also lovely. bar staff worked hard and were always pleasent.the beach is terrible all stoney. the reception staff could at times be very rude and the management were just the same. definitely would go back to kos but NOT the aquis marine.

Room Tip: if you have young children and are looking for entertainment this is not the place to be.
