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.

We stayed here in Oct 14. It was a last minute booking for x2wks. We loved the resort, the food was outstanding, probrably the best all inclusive we have been to. The resort is kept very clean and they staff are very nice. The room we stayed in was modern and catered for all you need. The only down side for us was the beach, we didnt rate it at all. It is a bus ride away from Kos town, which is only a few euro's and would definately recommend a visit or two. You can hire push bikes and cycle into KOS which was popular. The harbour has very good boat trips, but you need to haggle a best price though, we looked on trip adviser at the reviews. We also booked with the reps the day trip to Turkey from KOS town, which was value for money. It is great for shopper hollics like myself, fantastic bargains. We are hoping to return this year but the first x2 wks as everywhere closes mid-end Oct, the resort after we left were transfering the remaining guests to their 5* resort, Blue Lagoon Village-this is in a very remote place but beautiful. We hired a buggy and visited it.More

Huge resort that keeps you caged
sure, Blue Lagoon offers everything You could possibly want on a holiday. Except for authenticity. This kind of huge resorts are popular all over the world and it doesnt make any sense to me at all. Vast area, full of hotel buildings, couple of restaurants with nothing special to eat. Crowds of people on every step - doesnt really add up for a perfect holiday. The management tends to exploit the staff, mostly from south-east europe to their boiling points. ShameMore

Been 4 times says it all
i first went to blue lagoon for my brothers wedding in May 2012, the was 50 of us there by the day of the wedding. And all enjoyed and had a fab time. Myself enjoyed the place so much so I have returned 3 more times. All of them turning out to be a fab time. September of 2012, May 2013 and May 2014. As for the complex it is a good size. Clean an tidy. The staff are very helpful and the all inclusive food is plenty full and of good standard, The animation team do need a big up, as members change over the time but the standard of the day time activities stay high and the shows they put on at night even higher (I have to say there really do put on a show) The waterpark is a new one only been there on my last visits, it's by no means a massive waterpark but worth a visit as part of your all inclusive and is fun. The harbour and kos town are a 5 min taxi ride away (reception will book you a cab) and well worth a look round, there are plenty of nice places to eat if you fancy a change from the food in the hotel. And free wifi for those of you that need to check e mails or wide your mates up at home with a Facebook check in, And plenty of shops if you want to get gifts. I would recommend this for family's as the is 2 kids pools and kids clubs run by first choice and the animation. Also as couples an groups. There is a adults only pool if you want to chill in the sun in peace. For those wanting a bit of night life there is a bar strip in kos town (it's no Napa ect) but has a few bars open till pretty much the sun comes up. All in all I give this a5 out of 5 More

We stayed here in August 2014 for two weeks and after the flight and the transfer it was a welcome treat to be given a glass of champagne whilst queuing to check in. Check in was quick and efficient and we then headed outside to the golf buggies and were taken to our room.The rooms are very nice with a spacious balcony but I wouldn't say the rooms are a 5 star quality,but nevertheless they were definitely worthy of a 4 star rating. The complex is huge and there is always something to do,however if you want to stand any chance of getting a sun lounger around the main lagoon pool then I would advise setting your alarm everyday at 6am and wandering down to sit with your choice of loungers (I would never normally encourage this but I promise you that you will be disappointed if you don't because it gets mega busy!!!). The kids pools are good but again space is limited when the hotel is busy and at full capacity. The hotel water park is great and whilst not massive it's well worth a visit with the kids,and you can also get a selection of snacks/drinks etc whilst your there and we never struggled for loungers here no matter what time of the day. The main entertainment tent is situated near the main lagoon pool and resteraunt and again something that becomes a feature of this hotel is how busy it is,if you arrive at the entertainment tent after 8pm again you will struggle for seats,we would usually head to dinner earlier then head to the tent around 7/7.30pm so we could ensure a decent seat however after a while this becomes a little annoying so we would go into Kos town for a meal and just forget the entertainment. The all inclusive food aspect was great as there was lots of choice however the all inclusive alcoholic drinks were very watered down. The hotels entertainment (animation) team were excellent always on the go and always willing to help and chat with you so a massive thanks to them with a big thanks to benji !!!!! For the darts and the press ups!!. Myself and my wife used the hotels spa treatments,gym and indoor pool which was adult only and was also excellent. The kids club was operated by first choice and was very well run, and the kids loved it. My overall impression of the hotel was very good and I would return again.....Kos town is also only a 5 min taxi ride from this hotel and is definitely worth a visit,we also did the Turkey trip through Thomsons at the hotel again well worth a trip, well done Blue Lagoon and thanks for our family's great holiday and great memories.More

Perfect place for family relaxation. The golf cart gentlemen were very determined to drive and drop you everywhere across the sprawling resort. The resort itself is very nicely done, well maintained and not over-crowded. Our room was on the satellite section of the resort which was detached from the main resort but only a couple of minutes walk to the main bit, and it had its own bar, restaurant and pools. We loved all the pools. We enjoyed the food at all the restaurants, the buffet option being the best for trying a little bit of everything. Bicycle hire is available next to the hotel. Beyond that is the water slides and lazy river that belong to the hotel. Oh and the pancakes/slush hut, which are included in the all inclusive deal. Perfect setting for relaxing with young children. Buses run from just outside the hotel along the beach road into Kos town. Im not sure they run on time! If you want to go anywhere else on the island I think you have to go in to Kos town first to go back out again. I'd highly recommend this hotel.More
