“Lovely hotel close to the beach”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We stayed here in early July 2012 and booked through Thomson. We loved the hotel, clean, friendly staff and really close to an amazing beach.

The bedroom was spacious, the kitchen a little crowded with a table and bunk beds, but as we don't have children we didn't use the bunkbeds. We were on the ground floor at the back of the hotel, you could see the beach which was a 5 minute walk and it looked onto waste land, but it wasn't an eye sore. I think those with children would prefer a view of the pool from the balcony and it seemed that only adults were staying in the back facing rooms.

The apartment was cleaned every day, including washing up done for us, which was a lovely surprise.

We ate in the hotel restaurant on the first night because we arrived late, the food was good but not good enough for us to want to eat there again- it was a little too English. There is a lovely more authentic restaurant if you turn left from the hotel, it has blue and white tables and run by a lovely Greek family, it gets busy because the food is cheaper and really lovely, especially a lemon slow roast lamb dish. The best places to eat are the ones with the crowds so look out for them.

The beach in Tingaki is one of the best on the islands with reasonably priced loungers, some have free use of inflatables, floats, balls etc.

The only bad thing about our stay were the mosquitoes, we were warned by reading reviews but it was pretty bad, making it impossible to sit on the balcony after dusk. The room had air-con which kept them out to an extent and we ran in and out of the front and back doors to avoid them getting into the room, unfortunately the cleaners leave the front door open to clean and let mosquitoes in that way.

There are plenty of shops near by selling all you need including mosquito fighting equipment!

The Mythos Apartments are a real hidden gem as far as location is concerned, you wouldn't even know they were there from the main street (although they did put up a sign just before we came home!) We had room 24, beach view, high floor which was very spacious, the bathroom fairly small but this didn't bother us. Rooms are cleaned every day apart from Sunday which means a lie in. For us it was perfect as there are enough restaurants to pick and choose from each night. Our favourite was Meni a stone's throw from the Mythos, the staff are attentive enough to be friendly but no overly so. I recommend the caramelised lamb shank. The bakery across the road was good for pain au chocolat but not the waistline. The pool area is very clean and in May you don't fight for a space, enough sun and shade for everyone. I recommend the Mythos for a quiet week away. Kos Town was only 20 mins on the bus too and at €2 each way a bargain, only downside was the restaurants hassle you for your custom but a polite no thanks should be enough to make them look for someone else.

Excellent position in the Main Street. Great pool, good size apartment on 2nd floor. Room cleaned every day. All staff very helpful. Costas looked after us so well in the restaurant, lovely food, very reasonable prices, nothing too much trouble. Sea was warm, beach clean, plenty of beds & brollies. Great place to cycle in May. The island is easy to explore. Weather, on the whole, was v. Good. One day of torrential rain & hail but only for an hour then sunshine again. Loved it

Things you need to know.
Cannot fault this place, There is free wiFi, Hairdryers in all apartments and rooms, and a free safe, Room TVs have 4 English news channels, and one movie channel, Best rooms are 19, 21 and 41, worst rooms are no's 5 to 9 and 28, 29, and 30, as they are just below ground level, Other pool view numbers are 31 to 34, and 37 to 40, if you want the quiet life rooms 12 to 18 and 22 to 27 face the sea, We had number 21 which is a 2 bedroom apartment with 2 TVs, and 2 hairdryers etc, also 19 and 21 have no top on the balcony so you get more sun, also 10,11 and 12 are 2 bedroom apartments.
There is a homemade bakery oppisite the appartments, best taverna's are Esperos and the Yiamas Dana on the seafront, Best places to visit are Mastihari, Pyli, Kardanena, Keflos and Paradise beach,
Car hire was 100 euros for 4 days.
Thats about it
