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.

Rooms very clean, changed towels every day. resort very big, to big for my family although there were plenty of sunbeds. My only complaint was the dining in the evening, where the men have to wear trousers, when you see people going in with track suit bottoms and T shirts, and I have on tailored shorts and a smart shirt, I am turned away, it can be a little frustrating and especially when the only other dining area that allows you to wear shorts, you have to book, even though it is not al e carteMore
Did 2 weeks with kids/grandchildren. Loved the food, great choice. good choice of drinks both alcoholic and non a. Very clean. Staff extremely helpful. Just across road from beach(with its own bar) 2 Km into Kos town. Bus service virtually outside hotel. Has its own waterpark..with cafe & bar, has 6 or 7 pools, one with adult area. Dont usually do return visits, but would make an exception with this one.More
We stayed on the second floor of a building at the far end of the complex - not an issue as there are buggies to take you back and forth, there is also a lift. No high rise on the site. We had a view across the hills and of the sea. We were well away from the evening entertainment so no noise. The room was clean and the air conditioning works without being too noisy. We enjoyed the many food choices and did try all the restaurants on site (5 I think) My only negative about the restaurants was that the staff were very eager to clear the table, not waiting until all at the table were finished There is a shop which is more pricy than going a little way down the road or into Kos, Beware not all items are priced and may well be much more expensive than you imagined I found everyone in the hotel friendly and helpful. We couldn't think of anything that was missing from the complex. Plenty of pool areas and private beach and plenty of loungers (beach ones are chargeable) Room and beach towels providedMore
Well, I had a business trip and they booked us this hotel for 4 days...I have to say that is a good quality hotel first of all, but I think that Blue lagoon village in Kefalos it will be better. I had a simple room and it was very clear like the pool..but I had a problem with the stuff..they couldn't help me in many things...they didn't know where were the catalogues of the menu..:(:(More
We are a family of 4, with a 3 year old and a 1 year old (so this review is mainly focused on kiddie things) We absolutely loved this hotel, it is HUGE, which suited us and we had so much choice and didn't have to drag ourselves out with 5 bags, 2 kids and 2 prams (we did pop to Kos town which was beautiful). I don't want to repeat too much that's been said on other reviews (i'd advise reading the positive reviews as lots of good tips). Top tip would be take a little container to take some bits from breakfast to have as a snack later, the apple cake was devine! Yes the beer is quite weak, like a light beer, which is what we drink anyway so we were happy! The food was fabulous at every single meal, we enjoyed the main restaurant as the staff were ridiculously friendly and excellent with our children- Emmanuel and Martine were our favourites but my husband said I couldn't bring them home :) lots of choice every day, yes a little repetitive but so much choice it didn't matter, the desserts were delicious! We tried the Chinese, Greek and Italian- all lovely, especially the Italian! We preferred the satellite area as the pool was much more suitable for out young boys. Loved the lunch bar too and kids club in on site so really handy- my son asked to go to kids club and had a great time. We stayed in block 4000 so close to the main hotel and satellite which was handy. Our room was perfect, big (sunken) balcony so very safe and the kids were separate from us (hooray!) we had some drunken plonkers next to us the first night and it was a bit OTT so I complained and it was sorted out immediately. One little niggle...there are quite a few steps about, no ramp to the shop so a little awkward with the pram on your own. The staff in the shop were very friendly and polite but their English was a little rusty so I practised my Greek on them ð¬ Staff were never rude to us or anyone else as far as we saw, some staff are a little more 'stern faced' but I would be working in 40 degree heat picking up a 1 year olds food trail of destruction! We didn't go in the main pool but it looked fabulous - however the crepe station was visited daily ð My husband wants to book for next year- which is a first as we never go back to the same place twice! Everyone was so helpful and friendly- including the chefs, cleaners, security and workmen who barely spoke any English. Blue Lagoon have got it spot on- well done! Now go get that holiday booked! You're welcome ð More
