Kos is a great vacation spot for those who want a little of everything. Sightseeing and history abound, but it is also very easy to find discos, taverns and bars in the midst of both luxury and minimalist hotels.
One thing that tourists should make the trip to see is the Asklepion. There, the ancients were said to have relaxed and played as well. The various buildings were begun in the 4th century B.C., and they were used for centuries as a therapeutic haven. There are three terraces that have quite distinctive styles and purposes, illustrating how the monument was added to over many years. It is the area’s most famous landmark.
Also when in or around Kos, tourists should see as many of the unique combination of fortresses, monasteries, churches, springs and caves as they can. Guided tours of all of the natural attractions in the area are available.
The nightlife of the area is an important attraction as well. One bar, the Cactus Saloon, is situated within a row of bar and tavern establishments in Kos called “Barstreet.” From the patio of this particular bar, there is a very lovely view.
One hotel which receives very good reviews is the Blue Lagoon Village. Even on half board, it is an excellent deal. The rooms are very spacious, and the welcoming staff has been known to put fruit and wine in rooms as a pleasant surprise. Some recommend a room in the 1000 block because it is near the adults only area. This is quiet compared to the noisier main pool area.
Plenty of age-appropriate activities can be found for everyone. The entertainment is in an outdoor amphitheater, so it can be quite chilly during the winter and spring, so bring a jacket. The spa is also excellent.
The food is always given high marks, especially the themed restaurants. The BBQ Grill is one of these. Many patrons go back more than once on a week’s stay. There is a pool bar which offers basically the same menu every day, but this does not disappoint most guests because it is expected.
The location has a beautiful beach. Rooms above the Kid’s Club are in a very centralized location for all amenities. The main pool has an ice cream bar which also makes waffles, crepes, and many other things as well.
There are plenty of sun loungers on the large resort premises, both at the four swimming pools and on the beach. Therefore, it is easy to find a spot at any time.
