Spent a lovely and relaxing 2 weeks in the May/June sunshine. The staff were lovely and very friendly. Our apartment overlooked the beautiful fields and mountains and was right at the other end of the building, so no noisy people walking past the door in the early hours of the morning. The apartment was basic but very clean and we had fresh towels and bedding every other day. If you are planning on using the room to make your own breakfast and cups of tea, make sure you bring your own dishcloth and washing liquid as these were not provided. The pool area was pretty quiet for the 2 weeks we were there, so there was always plenty of sunbeds free. The town and beach are only a 10 minute walk away with plenty of restaurants and bars. There is a local bus to Kos town (2 euros each way) with plenty of shops and the beautiful castle ruins. Even though there is a time table, the bus does arrive whenever it likes, so make sure you don't plan to get to Kos Town for a certain time. The sunset evening in Zia is a must - would definitely recommend Taverna Oromedon. The food there was excellent, as was the view and service. The waiters came round with jackets for the ladies who got a little chilly once the sun had gone down. We also went on the volcano experience which was lovely, but maybe not for those who aren't steady on their feet as the walk down to the volcano is a little dangerous.
So overall, a perfect place to go for a relaxing and laid back holiday but plenty to do on the days you feel like exploring the island.
