I landed back at 3am today and I'm so keen I'm writing this now :)
In a nutshell:
Tigaki, Kos is a small resort only 20 minutes from the small Kos airport (40 minute transfer with other Thomson drop-offs)
33 degrees in August - we saw one cloud in 7 days! Kos also has a lovely breeze across the island which makes it much more bearable.
The Mythos apartment rooms are comfortable and clean with cool stone floors.
There is a two ring hob and basic cutlery and crockery but we ate out every night, so didn't use the hob.
Set back a few yards off the busy road made it very quiet yet if you want something livelier there are some bars on the main street.
Great maid service everyday except Sunday, fresh towels everyday if needed.
Good quiet air-con in each room for 83 Euros per week.
Kostas the afternoon/evening bar man was great fun,we had a great laugh with him and his team, there isn't a drink he doesn't know!
Mythos is one half apartments and one half taverna which we ate at two nights as it was one of the best places to eat anyway - try the Moussaka :)
There were plenty of sun beds available and it was a lovely relaxed atmosphere not the mayhem to grab sun beds that you get in some places! The Greek people are relaxed and friendly and it shows.
The nearby sandy beach is great - a mile long with water sports available, its a very shallow beach and very safe for kids although this does mean that the snorkelling is a bit dull as there isn't much to see! If the wind is up then you can even body board a bit too.
What i loved most about Mythos is that it is a family run place (Helen is the friendly old lady who works on reception) and also that there were all sorts of people there - families both young and teenage - a honeymoon couple, single partents, and even a couple of single travellers too. Ebetyon got on, hey werent rowdy but we all had fun and banter together.
I hope you enjoy you stay as much as we did :)
