Diamond Apartments
Ranked #45 of 48 Hotels in Kos Town
Reviewed June 26, 2012

Stayed at these apartments a few years ago and must say the hotel was in need of updating. The pool area was very relaxing and the surrounding grounds where very nice,
You where able to buy snacks at the poolside, they used to have a fantastic Greek night once a week.
The hotel is on a long dirt track and at night it was very dark when walking to and from the hotel,
Maybe one day I will return to see if it has improved from last time I was there.

We stayed at the Lydia apartments for 2 weeks 10 may 2012 apartments are in a lovely rural setting but you need to be prepared for a 15 to 20 min slow walk into Kos centre although you do hit shops after a short walk.The Lydia gardens are beautiful and very well maintained, apartments are cleaned daily 10 out of 10 to staff our only criticism are the showers too small and curtain too short so water goes everywhere, but you learn to live with it. Good value for money.best places to eat that we found was Caravan a family run restaurant about 10 min walk from apartments Hassan the owner is lovely and made us very welcome his wife does the cooking and the food is good.
Casa Della Pasta on the corner near the harbour good food lovely staff.Most restaurant prices are very similar only difference is the quality
Hire Car best we found was M.L.

I have stayed at the Lydia Apartments on a number of occasions, and I must say the upgrades on the rooms are out of this world. Mary and Sakis made us feel so relaxed and at home the perfect hosts. I can't wait to go back again.

We stayed 2 weeks at the Lydia Apartments Kos in September, Sakis Mary and Katerina are very good hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them, but as for the accommodation side it was appalling it seems to be stuck in the seventies and is in desperate need of a refurbishment.
self cattering apartments should offer the full equipment to self cater, the lydia Apartments do not do this, thay have a lovely pool but is sadly let down by the torn and dirty sun beds.
This resort could be execellent if they were to invest not only in refurbish but also staff that take pride in keeping it clean.

Back from 2 weeks in the "Lydia" and Kos. This was our first self catering holiday . Getting there was good . The appartment looked opk. Cobwebs in the bathroom window , shower head hung loose. Bedroom OK 2 singles pushed together. Kitchen area had bed setee made up ? on the table a coffee maker !! . 2 small rings to cook . No frying pan , No TOASTER . Had to spread butter with a spoon. So not the best equiped for self catering .
There is no transport that runs near the Lydia so a hike up to the road or hire some form of transport .
I was told to try the Italian Restraunt near the Dolphin Square so set off , walked through streets that all look much of the same , narrow , grey pavements with trees growing in them .
I found what I thought was the Italkian but asked the waiter and he said I should be 2 streets further on . He was so nice that I decided to eat ther and that isd how we stumbled upon Patriko , Owned buy Maria nad hosted by her cousin. I ate the 6 times and every meal was A1 .
I did try the Italian that was good . I found the chinese a little expensive. I also went to a greek grill twice and had Gyros . I tried the "caravan " which is reviewed here the owener was a lovley man , but I think that the foood was quantity and not quality.
So If you fancy a little greek cooking visit Patriko .
I will not be going back to Kos . Not up my street.
