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 got married here in September 2015 and what a fabulous time we had! The majority of staff were so lovely especially Anna our wedding planner and Meo, one of the gents who does wedding set up and works behind the bar. Really enjoyed the massive variety of food, drinks and entertainment. Nothing was too much trouble. We had an amazing wedding day and a lovely holiday and I cannot wait to come back.More

10 day break in the sun
The location is good for Kos and 2 euros on the bus which takes about 10 minutes. The room was nice and clean and spacious however the view of the kitchen roof was not all that,although the hotel staff did offer us to move but it was not really that much of an issue. The food was good with plenty of choices of places to eat at most times of the day. The staff were all very nice and I was some what surprised at certain staff reviews. If you want first class all the way then you have to pay a premium for that.I generally find if you treat staff members with respect you get treated the same. All in all I would recommend this hotel especially the price which was good value for money.More
Stayed for 11 nights at the end of September with my husband,parents and 3 children (6,2 and 4 months). Arrived very late one night in the worst rain I think I've ever seen in my life! Very stressful trip but was immediately relaxed as soon as we arrived, check in was quick and easy we were told we had been upgraded to a family suite which was much appreciated. The resort is huge but nothing was too far away we found that within a couple of days we had worked out where everything was. They give you a map so it was pretty easy to find everything. The pools are amazing some of the best I have seen and there are so many scattered about the resort you have so much choice! Yes they give you plastic cups for drinks but that's just common sense and happens everywhere you go I for one wouldn't want to have to keep my eye out for broken glass around the pool which is why they do it! Drinks are served in glasses in the evening. The water park was fantastic we all loved it slides are great fun! Food was good lots variety, desserts were absolutely beautiful! No problems booking restaurants it was all very easy. The crepe station is a must! Absolutely gorgeous, the girls in there work very hard and always with a smile on there faces and they were lovely with my daughter who insisted on ordering herself while I waited across the pool. The resort is extremely well maintained lovely and clean. The rooms are also kept very clean and we found them comfortable and spacious. I have read several people saying about the WiFi I have to say this is the only hotel I have stayed in where I got WiFi everywhere the only place it wasn't so good was in the room but since the room is just a base for you to sleep that didn't bother me. The staff are lovely some people said about them being rude we never saw that, the managers are very hands on and friendly always taking time to talk to you and make a fuss of the children. Our usual waiter at the bar was so sweet and lovely with the kids he always brought my 2 year old coasters because he knew she loved to play with them. Kos town is beautiful we got a taxi at â¬8 to avoid the bus with 3 young children my parents went a second time and used the bus and said it was a lovely ride with gorgeous views. Don't believe all you read we only saw a few refugees, some groups of men and families, we never felt uneasy just felt deeply sorry for them. So to sum up we had a fantastic holiday and I struggle to see how anyone could have any complaints it really is up there with one of the best places I've stayed and we'd love to return! Lastly I have to say everything you read about kos airport is true unfortunately, we decided to avoid the rush by getting a mini bus instead of the Thomsons coach which was a good choice. Check in was easy as we arrived early, security was easy but once your in wow! It literally has about 50 seats with at least 400 people there it's tiny and has no boards so no one knows what they are doing or where you need to be and the toilets my god that was an experience the smell hits you like a ton of bricks!! My advice go before u set off then wait till your on the plane! All in all would definitely return to kos and the blue lagoon resort.More
Not the standard I expected
Just returned from a weeks holiday at Blue Lagoon Resort. I enjoyed my stay but this is definitely not worth the star rating it has been given. The staff are all very friendly and efficient. the hotel is clean and well kept and there is a good day time activity programme. The evening entertainment however was not very good. We were in the satellite area which was quiet and relaxing but was a decent walk from the main areas, not good if you have any mobility problems. Golf carts whizzed by regularly and always stopped to see if you needed a lift anywhere in the complex. Our room was a good size and furnished and decorated nicely, a bit dark though and the lighting was not bright enough in the evening for putting makeup on or reading a book. The patio doors led out to our own good sized patio with table and chairs and nice lighting in the evenings. We had sunbeds reserved for us by the pool which was adults only. Good size pool with jacuzzi at one end. All very pleasant and relaxing, just too far to walk to take your towels back in the evening. The towel booth closed at 6pm but the pools were open until 7pm which just didn't make sense,I like to have a swim before breakfast and a swim before showering to go out for the evening so it was just not convenient to walk to booth before or after. Restaurants were adequate, but you were required to book a table in advance, never had to do this before other than when booking "a la carte". The Italian Resaturant was "a la carte" but to be perfectly honest it was just the same as the other restaurants except your main dish was brought to the table. Outside the hotel is just either the main road or fields that are littered with rubbish not really pleasant to go for a leisurely walk. Whilst I know this is not the fault of the hotel I do think the brochure should make it clear that there is virtually nothing outside the hotel. I did enjoy my stay but will not be back, the hotel was just not up to the standard I had expected for the price that I paid.More
