We`ve booked our all inclusive holiday through the Thomas Cook, which was a really good deal for the money we`ve paid for. We stayed in this hotel between 8th and 23rd of September 2012. After a 4 hrs very uncomfortable and late flight we arrived to the hotel around 1 o`clock in the morning. We didn`t realized that by this time no one will serve food or drink for us and we didn`t prepared, but just after the check-in we`ve got choose from any sandwiches which was made directly for our arrive, and we could also drink some orange juice. It was a very friendly and warm welcoming.
Our room was quite big, clean and the furnishing was modern- style. It had also a balcony which is a good point for smokers or everyone who loves to wach the beautiful garden with sea and the neighbour islands on the other side.
The hotel has got a lots of facilities and near it there are two small shops where you can buy almost everything what you missed from your luggage- of course they are very expensive. But only a 15 mins walk straight on the road you can find yourself on Tigaki`s main street where shops, supermarkets and also a duty free (????) mall can be found.
The buffet restaurant was fantastic, we really enjoyed our meals. We could choose from at least 4 different meat dishes, 4 sidedishes and they also made a good looking salad bar with some cold cuttings, fruitsalad bar as well and we`ve got to choose from a few different desserts which ones were really delicious! But for the people who doesnt like the buffet they also do 2 different a la carte taverns, so there`s no point to moan the food, you have a lots of opportunities! The staff was Romanian and very friendly, we loved them! During the day we could also eat and drink at the pool bars.
We had been on different tours (visited Pserimos, Kalymnos, Plati and the Volkanic Nissyros), we heard Kos Island`s history on the island tour and we saw the sun to hide into the sea in Zia near a very romantic dinner- these were very interesting advetures, I`d highly recommend them!
The only disappointing thing was the "Entertainment" by Thomas Cook. We felt this staff just doesn`t care about couples or even the teenagers as they`ve provided the same very very boring games at every evening for the children who likes to play or dance on the stage- but the children who wouldnt like to be on the stage they were totally forgotten.However, that is one of the reason they were kept. The childrens "show" has usually finished at 10pm and they always made a show for 1-2 hours. It was usually a quiz or they were getting something very bizarr clothes on and they were dancing and singing like in the Megastar...It was very hard to believe that this is really their job and they get any money for it!
So that is why we`ve spent our nights in Tigaki, where you can find numbers of very good clubs, bars and restaurants which ones are open til late! I`d recommend the Memories, the Mascot and the Meni bar&restaurant.
All together, we can say, we had a very amazing and nearly perfect holiday! I`d definitely stay there again!
