This place is spot on for water babies – as well as pools, you’ve got an aqua park with slides and a lazy river, plus the beach just over the road.
The Blue Lagoon Resort is anchored just outside Kos Town, across the road from a long, sand-and-shingle beach. A 10-minute drive will land you in the centre – there’s a bus stop right outside the hotel.
There’s a whole raft of pools here, from adults-only numbers to kids’ splash parks with slides and ships. Add in restaurants, snack spots, and a big list of activities and you’ve got a top-notch family set-up.

Incredible value - great hotel
We stayed for two weeks at the start of October and were blown away by the place. We booked a family room which was more than big enough for my son fiance and I and the room was very clean on arrival. We did compain about the cleaning once as it seemed that not all the sheets were being changed over but other than that the whole complex was kept immaculately. There is lots to do for children, even if you do not want them to go into the playclub then the children can keep themselves more than occupied by the pools. The food at all the restaurants was very good and the service exceptional. I should also mention the bellboys/service men who because my partner is disabled would pick us up from our room and take us wherever we wanted to go. They were always happy and never made it seem like a chore for them. It was still 25degrees when we went and did scale up to thirty one of the days so it was certainly hot enough. We will definitely be back again.More
Couples holiday - October
Wonderful hotel with everything you could need - Especially for families with children. Food - Brilliant choice of restaurants with good food. Served and Self-served. Good choice of food, decent quality. Room - Good side, nice bathroom with bath & shower. Fresh towels and dressing gowns. Storage space for clothes/cases. TV and balcony with table and chairs. We overlooked the entertainment tent and at first i was disappointed as i thought this would make for a noisy evening. I was wrong & loved it by day 2. Beds were always clean and freshly made. Pools - Plenty of choices! Adults pool was very quiet as you would expect. Main pool was the busiest with the crepe bar (yum!). Water park was really nice and all offered toilets, beds, food, drinks etc. The pools were absolutely freezing when we were there despite the weather being reasonable (20+ degrees with wind) which meant we could only bare to swim twice.. but thats not really a bad point but something to bare in mind! Price - We had a half price deal from Thomson so only paid Â£400 each for the week AI. Wouldn't have liked to pay more but in peak the price would be justified. Extra - We rented quadbikes from Stevesbikes a few times and loved it! Gave us a chance to explore more but meant we could come back for lunch and more importantly slush puppies! Overall, a very good hotel with lots of activities and options for every type of holiday. If you have children, it would be amazing as there are so many things to do with them without leaving the hotel.More
I visited in September with my daughter in law. From the minute we walked in we loved it. Food excellent hospitality excellent spotlessly clean nobody could do enough for you. Would definitely recommend it to anyone. There's something for everyone. However tiny bit disappointed that you were expected to pay extra for wine in most of the restaurants but overall we had a fantastic time. More
Love this place
Stayed here twice with hubby and little one, fantastic base to explore the island, food is good, staff are lovely, fantastic for family's, will definitely book again in future. Kos is a fantastic island to explore we always hire a car. Paradise beach is great for kids nice shallow water, kos town is lovely at night for a nice stroll only 5 mins in a taxi from hotel More
Fantastic Family Holiday
I'm a bit late in writing this as we visited this hotel in August during the summer holidays and had a fabulous time. The hotel staff here are great especially Stefanas the Restaurant Manager who was brilliant throughout this holiday. It would have been so easy for this review to have been negative as when we arrived at the hotel our rooms were not suitable as I was travelling with my parents and my son. My father has mobility problems and he had been placed in a room up a flight of stairs our Thomson rep was not very helpful and basically said we'd have to deal with it as the hotel was full this was not feasible as my father can't climb stairs so physically couldn't get in his room. The allocation manager stepped in and asked us to give him an hour. After which time he had found my parents the perfect room in block 3000 and he also moved myself and my son to the same block as well. Be warned that the rooms in building 6000 are extremely small and is one thing that needs to be looked at by the hotel. From then on in the holiday was great, good food and choice of restaurants. The Italian is amazing. Animation team were great with the children day and night. Swimming pool is amazing and always kept clean which is some job due to the size of it. The complex is huge but golf buggies can take you from one part to the other and the guys who drive them are fabulous high fiving the children as they drive past. It's location makes it easy to go to Kos town if you want to eat away from the hotel. A week here was not long enough and I would definitely stay here again and have no reason not to highly recommended it as a great holiday destination. More
