My two daughters and I travelled to Kos on first Ryanair flight to and from Liverpool in April 2011. Flight went like clockwork as did car hire at airport and this accommodation. OK this is not a 5 star all inclusive Hotel but nobody is claiming it is. What we got was a good sized, freshly painted apartment that was spotlessly cleaned with a shower & bath, good balcony, free wifi and the bonus of a nice on-site pool with a small bar and hosts that looked after you very well .
There’s a very good supermarket (not a mini-market) just across the road too.
All in all, I think you will do well to better the Elite in Kos town for the money. I have stayed all over Greece and this is the first time we’ve had complimentary toiletries, fresh flowers on the kitchen table, full condiments, plenty of loo rolls and cleaning materials and yes for the first time ever, washing up liquid and a squeegee in the kitchen sink, all these things are a given that you have to go out and buy on your first day and then leave 80% full when you go. It even had a hair drier and an iron & ironing board!
Now for the niggles, other travelers have said that it is 5 to 10 mins walk to the town centre but we found that was more like 20 mins to the main square and it's not a particularly great walk back after a night out in April.
There’s a beach about 5 to 10 mins walk away but when we were there it was scruffy & dirty and we would not have used it.
The only English TV channel other than news was what was being shown in the bar and when the channel was changed or switched off so was ours!
Why leave a big fan in the room with the plug locked inside a box and charge almost as much to rent it for a week as the thing would have cost to buy – bizarre. (Come on Makis, it’s bought and paid for, let em have it for free, knock 5 or 10e of the price of the safe and air-con then no one can moan about it!)
I’ve tried to be honest and fair and would have no hesitation in staying at the Elite again.
