“Good value for money”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

Excellent value, these apartments were basic but very clean. I had eveything I needed although if I was cooking I would also have liked a small saucepan, as one large one is rather limiting!
Staff were friendly and very helpful.The pool area was clean and well maintained.As it was October I didnt need air con but thought the charge of 5 euros a day was a bit steep.The only real concern I had was the lack of a grab bar or non slip mat in the shower area of the bath, even young peple can have a nasty fall on a slippery surface. The walk into town really wasnt that bad, although I would recommend requesting a map on day one as I got lost at least twice....the roads do not always run parallel. All in all excellent value, and felt very safe even walking back alone late at night.

Room Tip: The rooms in block 4 are a bit bigger.

my friends and I (3) staied in one ap. last week for 3 nights and it was a great experience!
We were shocked by the luxuriation and the low cost. It has everything you need to make dinner you just need to make a quick stop at the market. There is a close market near the apartments.
We walked every time to the center by our own, no need for buses or taxis.
The receptionist is an incredible person she helped us with any kind of helpful information and always with a big smile.
they have a few facilities for children to play (we had fun too), a lots of green and trees a pool but was too cold to enter :\ with comfortable chairs..it felt like a resort in an island also because their are located not near streets and car noise enough to stay away from the noise but close enough to walk to the center.
They have a meal service (tasty menu) they make it right away, but we were low-budget travelers so we preferred to buy and make our own lunch.

Really recommend to stay there, for me it made my vacation worthwhile...general in KOS try their FRUITS, OLIVE OIL, LOCAL CHEESE...its simply heaven..so tasty..so good!

Room Tip: any diamond ap.

This was our 10th visit to the Diamond Apartments ( Lydia to us ) And as usual we had a wonderful time with our extended greek family of Mary & Sakis,it was nice to meet Barbara and sample her tasty breakfasts and lunches.The apartments are well kept, as are the lovely gardens,smiling cleaners everyday,The swimming pool is brilliant for this 6ft 2in non swimmer walking to all corners i'm still in my depth ha ha! The apartments are within a 10/15 min walk of Kos town,yet far enough away for piece and quiet,except of course for the famous confused cockerel ( any time of day ) Thanks again Mary Sakis and Barbara for a great 2 weeks and Mary thanks again for room 411 ha ha !

Room Tip: Blocks 3 and 4 are favorites, Block 1 may be too close to the bar for some peoples tastes

My partner has stayed at the Diamond (Lydia) Apartments five times previously. This was my first visit and therefore my personal review as he has left his separately.

Welcome: we arrived late as our flight was delayed. We received the most amazing welcome from Sakis; partly due to his long standing friendship with my partner but I was welcomed just as much. This truly was a most amazing start to our holiday. The ‘welcome’ bottle of wine in our apartment from Sakis and Mary was a wonderful touch.

Accommodation: the apartment was basic but most certainly met our requirements. The newly refurbished bedroom was lovely, fresh and relaxing; really quite ‘shabby chic’. The mosquito nets on the doors and windows were superb though the shower room would benefit also. Some say the kitchen/living room area is basic and in need of updating. I disagree. Yes basic but then again when on a self-catering holiday what more is required than making a coffee or tea. The shower room/toilet was adequate. Many complain about the shower curtain; it doesn’t matter if there is a shower curtain or not as it’s a ‘wet room’. Just put the shower mat by the door and you are fine. As for the televisions being small, so what? Who needs a television on holiday. Room maid service was adequate; towels and bed linen replaced frequently, shower room was kept clean, though I do believe floors and kitchen units could have had more attention. Though there was little, on previous visits to similar places I have experienced the cups washed. This is not a complaint as we were happy.

Pool/Bar: we spent most days here. The pool is spotlessly clean and an incredibly relaxing area. We ate most days for breakfast and lunch at the bar. The prices were matched with anywhere in Kos town.

Staff: Mary and Sakis were amazing. Professional but the most incredibly accommodating and amusing people. Varvara (Barbara) is just wonderful too; she makes the most wonderful burgers on earth.

Management: all in all it appears the Diamond Apartments are well maintained and managed. I do believe that some reviews on this site should be taken on board. The most important thing is to realise, from my opinion, that Sakis and Mary are providing a most superb service; Varvara also. Please take this on board.

Overview: we had a fantastically enjoyable and relaxing two-week holiday at the Diamond Apartments. Would I go again? Yes, mainly to see Sakis, Mary and Varvara. They really are the foundation of the Diamond Apartments. Yes it's a little way out from Kos town, about a 15 minute walk but that's fine. It helps to walk off the over excess of eating and drinking and stretch the legs. Kos was wonderful too. The three island cruise was amazing......I recommend the Katerina. As for restaurant reviews, I will leave these separately. Thank you Sakis, Mary and Varvara.

Just back from a 14 day holiday at Diamond Apartments. Returned to the island after a 10 year break. The apartment was perfect, with a lovely card and bottle of wine welcoming us back. The rooms were better than before as new mosquito doors were fitted allowing air to flow from outside. As I am aware there are more improvements to be made.The rooms were cleaned daily. Mary and Sakis would always go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. Food was excellent. With the welcome addition of Barbara who was very friendly and helpful. Pool area was spotless. Gardens were well maintained. So much has changed in ten years but I could not fault Diamond Apartments. I will definitely be going back to Diamond Apartments.

Recently back from a ten day stay at the Diamond Apartments and what a great stay it was.Sakis and Mary were great hosts and always made us feel very welcome. The whole atmosphere was nice and friendly and we made some nice friends. Barbara was a little star always pleasant and worked hard behind the bar. Was pleasantly surprised by the size of the apartments and were cleaned every day. Pool area was lovely and quiet and never got crowded so no rush for the sunbeds! Good location even if it is a fifteen minute walk to harbour as you dont get the noise that you would get in kos town. There is a Carrefour supermarket about 5 mins away and a small shop if you need any basic supplies.Would definitely stay here again.
