I have done a full review of Pelagos Apartments/hotel and also outside in Kos, places to eat and see and I hope this helps you. I have written reviews before and am honest in my views and I’m a fussy person!
This hotel and Kos, was fantastic. I went out of season, so it was quiet but good for me!
Rooms – They supply Beach/Hand and bath towels.
Rooms have baths and shower over it, 2 large single beds and a sofa bed, TV, Air conditioning, small kitchenette including a Fridge
Only downside was that the pillows are firm and very high, as though you’ve got two on top of each other, so if you like a low pillow, ask for another as I did but they tend to only have the big ones, so take your own.
We had a basement room with no balcony (there are only a few of these) we asked to move and they did this the next day with no hesitation. The Balcony is a nice size
Iron, you can borrow from Reception, no charge
There is a park for the kids to play in
Pools, they are not heated but in the summer, they are fine
Restaurant – They charged £6 for a buffet breakfast, blimey, eats all you like and everyone did, it was great food
I didn’t eat in the evening there but was told the food was as good as the breakfast, I’d not heard any complaints and that was €10
Lunchtime, you can eat at the pool bar, again good food but off a menu so pay for what you eat, not fixed price
Bars -Pool bar & one inside too
Downstairs, under the reception area, is a couple of shops, their isn’t much choice and is expensive, better to go next door to the supermarket, especially for water that is cheaper next door
Internet – Cost about €5.50 for 20 mins, then when you hand the card back, you get a refund of €3
The beach is opposite; I didn’t visit it but looked okay to me
Staff – they had a few Slovakian guys & girls, with Greeks too. All of the staff were fantastic, especially Ada & Chucky the Entertainment staff, Linda on Reception, then Maria, Billy and Hussain on the Pool Bar. All of them were funny and always smiling and helpful, despite the VERY long hours they put in. If you need anything, they can’t do enough to help you
The resort is a good 30 mins walk to the town/harbour but the bus stops outside, costs just 90 cents each way, comes half hourly and is reliable
Outside Restaurants/eating places
There is a great restaurant next-door, not badly priced, good food and the Staff are friendly too
EVEREST – Opposite the Harbour – like a SUBWAY – great food and pretty cheap, rolls made to order, pastries, and drinks
Behind Everest on the harbour, is the BEST restaurant ever! It’s situated on a Cobbled, stepped up kind of side road, really quaint and picturesque. It’s called THE FISH HOUSE.
I had Steak, as I’d seen a guy next to me have it and it looked good. I have never in my life had a steak taste to good, then and even now; my mouth is watering at the taste. It was expensive to other places but I’d say go for it, even just one night.
Thomson’s charged €74 each for a trip to Bodrum on the boat, with a Turkish bath & shopping. I did this trip for just €15 for the boat, by just going to the Harbour and booking it.
I didn’t have the Bath but was told that you’ll need to take a swimsuit and change of clothes. Also take shampoo & conditioner if you worry about your hair, as they do use some but it’s not that great. Also, take some cream as they scrub your skin and massage, it leaves you dry but I was told it was fantastic. The baths you can pay for when you get there
Turkey do take the € so don’t worry about changing to their currency. You will get on the boat and go through passport control at both ends, so need to take your passport with you. You can get duty free at Bodrum for when you come back but check the limits, I came back with a box of Tobacco and cigarettes, they said only one box but luckily let me back in
You can get cheap clothes & bags in Turkey, all designer rip offs. They will tell you you’re special and you can have it cheap. Example, they will offer a bag at €40, then €30 and so on. Just offer about €10 and stick to it, walk out the shop, then eventually say €15, stick to it if they don’t take the €10. Don’t pay more, they WILL try to drag you back in again, they want your business. If they don’t, move on, there are so many bag shops!
Tuesday is the market day in Bodrum, it’s just clothes really not much else
We hired pushbikes, through the hotel. They phone the shop, the shop came in minutes to pick us up and take us to the shop. Then you choose a bike & go. Take the bike back & they drop you to the hotel. Cost of a bike was just €2.50 a day
If you hire a motor scooter, they are cheap but you’ll need your passport!
