I have travelled to the Golden Sun apts twce- not out of choice! I went away with a friend and her family several years ago to Golden Sun - this was my second visit to Kos, I had been once prior to this to Kos Town. My third visit to Kos I went away with my dad and brother and he ended up booking here for us!
If you're looking for luxury, the Golden Sun is not for you! Decor is old and dated, heavy wooden furniture and dangerous slippery floors, we had a few falls.
The pool area is nothing special. I must point out that most of the clientele are chavvy, loud families who have made friends with the owner (can't for the life of me remember his name) returning year after year - this isn't for me, I work in travel and I try not to end up going back to the same place more than once -when it's up to me anyway.
The location is fantastic- Tigaki is not very big but you have a strip of cocktail bars, restaurants, pubs and clubs- something for everyone.
The hotel is down a dirt track about 300m, not very far but dark at night as it isn't lit At the end of the path when you're walking down to the bars, the first restaurant on the corner is brilliant- the owner looks like hannibal lecter but he is a top guy!
The reason I would recommend Atki Dimis instead is that it is closer to the beach, and much nicer quality apartments- I highly recommend Tigaki it is a lovely little resort but pay a bit more and stay somewhere nicer than Golden Sun- at least until they refurb.
