We went as a 5, we got to the hotel after a 10 minute journey and greeted by the two reps rosie and Simon.


Reps- both reps were very friendly and as previous reviews say I would recommend at least 3 of the activities safari moon party and booze cruise. Gives you a good chance to meet other people and have a good laugh plus I have 3 hours in total of free bar!fot 145 euros.

Night life- if u do choose a night out just with ur groups u wont be disappointed there is people all over offering good deals and defo try the water party at starlight.

Eating - Elga has a good pool bar hut other Than that for dinner we went to rios or captains,the staff is really friendly.

Elga it's self is a good hotel don't expect to get much sleep but y would u go on a 18-30s to sleep! The bar staff r friend James and charlie and burnley boy well that's how we referred to him as

Summed up! Go have fun get smashed

First girls holiday and it was amazing. 6 of us went and we all loved it. Firstly, ignore all the bad reviews on here cause the Elga is sound as! Clean and no yellow shower water. Reps are lovely too. Very helpful.

Not long back from two weeks in Kos with three of my friends and we had a fab time!!

After reading the reviews we were pretty scared as to what we were going to be staying in, but when we arrived it was actually not bad at all. The staff at the Elga are really welcoming and friendly. One thing I would say is bring a bobble so you can tie the shower up so it actually stays up and you dont have to hold it. ALSO buy a fan - it gets reallly hot at nights!

I would recommend going on some of the reps trips as this is a great way of getting to know everyone in the hotel..the full moon party was our favourite! The reps Simon and Rosie are both lovely and a great laugh.

Kos is a really friendly place, one of the friendliest places i have been - Everyone is so welcoming. I'd recommend going to Scala and Pepperinos along the beach front for a nice meal. Rios 24 hr takeaway is also amazing...you need to have a Gyros.I think we spent half of our money in there! The beach is also really nice and has a large range of watersports if your into that. Go on the UFO its a great laugh!

All in all we had a great holiday, met some lovely people and we are now very depressed to be back at work in the not so sunny Scotland!
I would definately stay at the Elga again and recommend it to anyone that is looking to have a good time.

Room Tip: Corner rooms have bigger balconies.

Our first girls holiday together (4 of us!!) On arrival we were so scared that we were going to be greeted with the inbetweeners like material. The hotel itself is very decieving. Basic, friendly reception/bar staff, clean facilities but in the perfect location just a 5 minute walk from 2 of the biggest clubs in Kardamena!! Perfect!

Kos itself is a relatively quiet run down area in comparison to Magaluf, Malia and Zante. There are a strip of bars which are all competing with one another to get you in for the best prices (Makes it cheaper for you) and also a strip of restaurants located on the harbour. The restaurants we found were very pricey however there are also people outside offering you 10% off vouchers or free cocktails in order to entise you in.

Hotel - In the week that we spent there we were generally really happy with it. Like I said above the hotel is basic but clean and ideal for anyone on an 18-30's. The biggest let down for the room itself was that the bathroom is a wet room. This means no shower curtain, no cubicle, no hook to hold the shower up, just one open room. This made it very difficult to shower and meant that our group of friends ended up showering each other! The hotel rooms also lack air conditioning which means you have to buy a fan at the start of the week.. this barely makes a difference to the unbearable temperatures. I would recommend that guests also request a high room as the reception is blaring music out all day all night due to the 24 hour bar! Yes 24 hour! The hotel also has a pool food bar. Our group ate here regularly during the day. The pool bar is reasonably priced with big portions.

Reps - Although past reviews tell you not to I would highly recommend booking onto the reps acitivites during the week (Otherwise you will be very bored!) Our group paid for the boat trip, full moon beach party and bar crawl for 145 Euros! Bargain! 2 of the 3 activities also included 1-2 hour free bar which meant that when it came to entering the big clubs we didnt need to purchase loads. Within these activites it also included entry into the bigger clubs which saved us 15 Euros a time! The reps (Simon and Rosie) are very hands on and are always around the pool/reception area to chat and make sure everything is ok. This is how they are known as the "mum and dad of the hotel". Even on nights out if they see you they go out of their way to chat and dance with you and join in with whatever you are doing.

By the end of the week everyone within our hotel became one big family unit and were very sad to be going home :-( Kos blues are still happening. To say the area is so quiet our group still met the best people and had hands down the best week. Your holiday is very much what you make it and you need to be with the right people to enjoy Kardamena!

Kos was amazing! never had such bad holiday blues! The apartments were good, have everything you'd need for that type of holiday. only downfall was having to hold the shower ourselves but me and the girls helped each other with that and made a laugh out of it. The owners were lovely. we ate out most nights but the food at the bar is just as good. club 18-30 nights were worth the money, as it was the start of the season Kos was quite quiet so a lot of places were empty. Even though it can be quiet it was amazing week and you get to know everyone really well and I met some amazing people I still keep in contact with! The reps are all really nice and helpful and made the effort to get everyone involved. I would definitely go back without a doubt, been so depressed being home since! Elga is definitely the place to stay!!

Our first girls holiday, there were 7 of us all looking forward to a week of sun, sea, and cocktails :P after reading the reviews, I was a little nervous that I would hate the apartments itself and kos, but once me and the girls had got there, we had nothing to worry about, if anything It was better than expected, it was clean, our rooms were pretty big, so there was plenty of room for the pre-drinking that was about to take place ;) the only downside was that our bathroom light kept breaking and we didn't have a shower curtain so the bathroom did get a little flooded. Simon and Katie were amazing the best reps we could have asked for, they were friendly, they took the time to get to know you and they made the fun! :) the atmosphere at the pool was great, always had music playing to keep you in that party mood and the pool bar was pretty handy for when you fancied a cheeky cocktail. It was honestly the best holiday I've had so far, despite Kos being smaller in size it does not mean it's any less fun or that you won't meet some amazing people and have a great time!

Room Tip: A room at the front of the hotel was handy so you could see what everyone was up to, or just to have...

If your looking to go to Kos, Egla is the place to stay. There is such a relaxed atmosphere during the day, then at night its all out for the night life! The reps make sure everyone socialises together which is good. The reps make the holiday so much more fun! I would recommend signing up to the package they do, its worth every penny! Then early morning everyone comes back to Elga for a party in the bar which is so fun! Loved every minute and would go back next year!
