“Happy Days Crazy Nights”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

For some unknown reason the Irene appears to get less reviews than other hotels/apts in the area but nearly all the ones they do get are all excellent. I think that the majority of holidaymakers that visit the Irene are return guests which speaks for itself and therefore actually requires no review.There is also a possibility that all the return guests want to keep the fact that it is so nice here to themselves and continue to book year after year.We have made 4 visits here in the past 5 years and for me it feels like visiting family. I can only reiterate what all the other reviews say.This year we chose June instead of Sept and therefore met a bunch of different people which was lovely but also we met several people from previous visits. Come to the Irene meet the family,get involved, sit at the bar, chat with other guests,get on the bus into town,take Rex for a walk,obtain a nickname (most of the guests have one) or just chill and have fun. We will be back and you never know I may see you there just ask for Koumparos

Thank you Elias, Nick, Jack and the lovely Evie for a wonderful holiday, it was without doubt just what we needed and were made to feel so welcome, spotless apartments, nice pool and bar area but it's the service and attention you get here that makes it stand out

We cant see how our holiday could have been better, Elias, Nicos and Jack were as always fantastic hosts. This is our third visit and our second this year. we are booked to go back for longer next year. The apartments are cleaner than in some five star hotels we have stayed in and the family made us feel completely at home. Its wonderful to see the same people returning this is a sign of how good Irenes is. Fantastic value and there are some great restaurants within walking distance. The food at the apartments is great value and Elias does a mean breakfast. Cannot thank the family enough for making this a home from home and each time we return it just seems to get better. Yamaaaaassss! Pat and Steve

From the time we arrived we were made to feel welcome by Nick,who met us off the coach transfer. Shown straight to our very clean room and then asked if we would like a drink at the bar which is situated by the pool. your just made to feel so welcome even though it was late at night. (This service has continued throughout our week stay at Irene.) The next day we met Jack (nicks brother) and Elias(nicks farther)and Evie (nicks girlfriend) who quite happily made another guest a lovely birthday cake.(which was to die for) really nice touch. The bar is well stocked with bottled and draught beer,wine and a good selection of spirits. There's a great food menu,and I recommend the Irene salad.The pool is beautiful and clean as is the surrounding area,sky tv,wi/fi, darts,pool table are also there for use. My wife and I have had a lovely holiday in kos thanks to everyone at Irene apartments, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this place to anyone. Once again thanks Elias,Nick,Jack and the lovely Evie,not forgetting Rex the dog. Keep up the good work. You really no how to look after your guest. Will be back next year. Once again thanks

Where do I start , the moment we arrived at 2am we were greeted and shown to our rooms . The apts were family run by the dad Elias , two brothers Jack and Nikos and not to forget Nora, nothin was to much trouble for these guys. Food was amazing entertainment was perfect and the hotel was great, what made it even better is that all the holidaymakers had great banter going on and we met some great friends for life. We have already booked to go back next year with everyone we met......that just says it all. Oh and Nikos you pusssssyyyyyyy ;-) love you guys all our love Daniel & Laura xxxxxxxx p.s in all my years holiday making this is the best place by far I have been yammaaaassss

We decided on Kos for our holiday this year, and whilst browsing brouchures and web sites we came across the Irene Apartments quite by accident. After doing our homework and checking out the reviews, we concluded that we couldnt go wrong choosing the Irene.

Our holiday there surpassed all expections!!

My wife and I, together with our 2 daughters aged 19 and 11 stayed here the first 2 weeks in August. We arrived in the early hours only to be greeted off the coach by Nico who introduced himself, memorising our first names immediately, then helped us to our apartment and then serving me with an ice cold beer... Just the welcome and nightcap you need after a long journey..!

As mentioned in previous reviews the Irene Apartments are run by Elias with his 2 sons Nico and Iakovos (Jack) together with help from the lovely Nwra (neice) and Tatiana (maid). This group of fantastic people go that extra mile and work so hard to make your holiday as enjoyable and as memorable as possible. Their friendliness spreads to all the guests and before you know it you have a simply wonderful atmosphere both day and night. Nothing is too much trouble for these guys and they simply just go out of their way to help you with anything (even down to organising our car hire).

The complex itself has a lovely pool area, terrace and well maintained gardens, together with more than enough sunbeds for everyone. The snack bar serves fantastic food (generous portions at cheap prices) and the bar is well stocked catering for all personal tipples! There are activities throughout the day, and entertainment at night. There is no pressure to join in, if you chose not too, just sit back,relax and enjoy. If you choose to, then its just fun time!
Our apartment had everthing we needed including a nice large balcony, with towels and bedding changed regularly.

I need to mention the Apartments hold a weekly barbeque and Greek night. This is an absolute fantastic experience with good food, and great Greek Dancing lead by Elias dressed in traditional costume. Everyone gets up and joins in, no matter what your dancing skills are like!
Great fun and thoroughly recommended!!!

The apartments are in a decent location, a 10 minute stroll will bring you to a cluster of beach front traditional tavernas / restaurants serving fantasic food at good prices. A 30 minute walk will bring you into Kos Town or a bus stop is right outside the apartments if you need it.
Kos Town itself is a very pretty place with its abundance of shops, tavernas and bars.
We hired a car for 2 days and went around the island visiting most of the main resorts, mountain villages and historical sites. The island is not that big so you can visit most places by hiring a car. Also we did the 3 island cruise. This was a great day out and thoroughly recommended. Kos is indeed a beautiful island.

Once again we would like to thank Elias, Nico, Iakovos, Nwra and Tatiana for making our holiday so memorable and also a big thank you to all the wonderful people we met and the good friends we made.

Thank you all for a Brilliant Family Holiday.

See you all next year at the Ireni Arena (Aye)....... EH??

Everything has been said on previous reviews, I just wanted to add a few additional comments,,unfortunately on my third day I had a bad accident and broke my arm falling off a push bike, when I woke up in hospital I was greeted by NIco with a milkshake he was so supportive saying his family were their to help and support my wife and my daughter. Later in the day Jack came with more drinks and food. I was in hospital four days and they came every day. My family were made to feel at home and made great friends with the other holidaymakers. Ellias, Jack, NIco and Nora went above and beyond and I am truly greatfull they are lovely people and the reports speak volumes. Anyone going to the Irene will have a great time , come home with great memories and many friendships
