This was our second visit to the Nicon (July 2012) and even though I knew it would be good it exceded all our expectations. We are a family of four - two adults and two children (15 and 12) and had a one bedroom apartment (number 28). Basic room but everything you need. We got the aircon for the second week as it was getting really hot at night. Excellent patio area and probably the best shower we have ever had in Greece (in terms of water pressure and hot water lasting). Room was spotless and cleaned every day.
The Pool area is also extremely clean and tidy with plenty of sunbeds available.
What makes the Nicon though is the staff. You just cant fault any of them - Nikos, Costa, Arthur and Spiros...they cannot do enough for you. Always friendly, pleasant and polite. Costa looks after you in the day - food, ice creams, drinks etc and then Nikos and Arthur (and Toni) take over in the evening. The drinks are extremely cheap and we loved the Greek Night (went both weeks!) and the quiz nights (champions).
Kos Town is only a 20 minute walk away (5 mins on the bus) and is bursting with bars, restaurants and tavernas. My advice is to follow Nikos recommendations - we did and found some real gems we probably would never have stumbled upon. Kos Town is great but the old town in particular is lovely.
Having slightly older kids we did the Paradise Beach trip (great for watersports) and the Water Park...however next year I would probably just hire a car and go under our own steam.
Once again a great holiday. Kos is beautiful and Kos Town is buzzing but once again top billing goes to the Nicon itself and the wonderful staff. Thank you guys. Loved it.
