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.

I can not praise this resort enough, the staff are so nice, friendly. In particular the sous chef in the Italian restaurant was amazing, he made special Gluten Free Food every morning and evening for myself and 4 year old daughter. The pancakes were amazing! I would highly recommend this resort to everyone. Great for kids and adults. More
My partner and I had the pleasure of staying here as part of a large group, celebrating my best friend's wedding in Kos. So much to comment on... Hotel - Lovely bright and airy reception area with plenty of seating. Plenty of choice of pools and relaxation areas throughout the very large site. Great option of the adults only section in the satellite area. It is a reasonable but pleasurable walk to the other side of the hotel (around 10 mins walk) but is worth exploring! Lots of daily entertainment available (although, the evening entertainment was pretty poor!) Pools - 3 pool areas to choose from; a huge main pool, a large pool and play area for the children and a smaller but still decent sized adults only pool. All are very cleanand never any problem getting a decent sun lounger, regardless of the time of day - quite an accomplishment for a hotel of this size! Complimentary pool towels available and a lifeguard always on site. Location - A short taxi ride away from Kos town (8 euros in a taxi or 2 euros one way on the bus). Bus stop located just around the corner of the hotel and sand and shingle beach just over the road. Resort big enough that you wouldn't necessarily need to leave the hotel if you didn't want to. Perfect! Rooms - a little on the small size for the price we paid, we expected something a little bigger. Bathroom very small. Decent balcony area with view of the kids pool (6109). I got the feeling our block (6000) was in need of refurbishment as the room felt a little dated, but the lovely maid kept it beautifully clean throughout our stay. Daily visits from the maid and towels always replaced. Staff - All but 1 member of staff I encountered were wonderful - they couldn't do enough to help. Reception staff particularly helpful and always friendly. The resort certainly does not have a staff shortage - there are plenty throughout the hotel and all but one have a very high standard of customer care. The manager at the Chinese restaurant is my exception! Food/drink - Average. More cocktails needed to be included on the all inclusive menu. 3 euros for a fresh orange juice is too much to pay! Plenty of restaurants to choose from and always plenty of choice but I think if I had stayed another week I would have been bored. The food was well seasoned (sometimes a little too much salt in many dishes) and chefs friendly. Breakfast was my favorite meal - always lots of choice if not a few random dishes (I found sweet corn and chicken nuggets to be a strange breakfast option!) A little annoying having to book any of the seperate restaurants for your evening meal by 10am that morning - I would prefer to have the choice later in the day as sometimes I did not know what I would fancy that evening! We had a really terrible experience in the Chinese restaurant please AVOID that one, do not waste your time! Food, service, atmosphere absolutely appalling!! (We did complain to the reception staff about this - what are you to do when the manager shouts in your face?!) All that said, I do not wish to conclude this review on a bad note. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to others, and would not hesitate in booking this hotel again. We had a very pleasurable stay and memorable holiday with our friends which we are very grateful for!More
We stayed at this hotel from 5th -12th Jul 16 as a family of 4. Rooms Very clean and of an adequate size coffee/tea making facilities and bathrobes always kept clean by the housekeeping staff Staff All of the staff were extremely helpful. My son had broken his leg prior to the holiday and we particularly appreciated help from the buggie staff getting him around the hotel. We were also pleased our request for him to have a ground floor accessible bathroom room was met. We found reception staff generally helpful. The grounds are quite large and we were initially worried about how my son would negotiate the grounds however a quick call every time to the reception and a cart would appear.Thank you guys!!A big thank you to Maria in the adult pool bar who kept us topped up with drinks throughout the day such a lovely and hard working lady! Restaurants Various restaurants on site and you can use them as many times as you want throughout the stay Many other facilities Pools and Sporting activities. We are likely to go back next year so my son can do what he was unable to do this year. One thing I would change is the hotel sign. If you see it it's not the best and not reflective of this being a superior quality hotel.More
My husband and I have just returned from the Blue Lagoon having had an amazing two weeks. The hotel is spotlessly clean. Our room had a lovely sea view and had a flat screen TV, a double bed and a fridge, which was stocked with water. There was a safe in the room, however to use this, there was a charge of â¬35 for two weeks. The all inclusive buffet food in all restaurants was great and varied to suit all tastes. You can also reserve a table each morning in either the Greek, Italian or Chinese restaurants for your evening meal, which is also in with the all inclusive package. The Italian and Chinese are particularly popular and delicious. We were however surprised to find that the all inclusive didn't extend to the drinks in the Chinese restaurant and these had to be paid for or charged to your room. The only thing we found bizarre is that gents have to wear long trousers to four of the five restaurants when "ladies" are able to wear hotpants and items that resemble beachwear. Bit silly that men are not allowed to wear tailored shorts, even when it's 40degrees! The staff at the hotel are fantastic and we cannot rate them highly enough. In particular Kiril in the main bar and Maria in the adult only pool bar were exceptional and are a real credit to the hotel. Karavi bar should be re-named Maria's bar as she did a fantastic job of keeping a busy bar happy and the area spotlessly clean. The management are equally fantastic and could not do enough for us to ensure that we had a great holiday. We were struggling to book the Chinese restaurant due to it being fully booked. We mentioned it to the hotel manager and were promptly booked in to eat there the following night. The adult pool is the "best kept secret ever" and a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the main pool, which had daily entertainment and was busy with children. There was different entertainment on every evening which catered for both kiddies and adults. The hotel is enormous and the grounds are kept immaculate. There are also numerous golf buggies around the site in order to assist you in getting from one side to the other if you don't fancy walking. The hotel is a short 10min walk from Lambi which has bars and restaurants. We would recommend Delon bar which is run by Kosta and Elaina. They do a fabulous English breakfast if you fancy a change from the hotel one morning and they are a very friendly couple. Kos town is a short taxi ride â¬8 into Kos Town. Kos town is lovely and definitely worth a visit, with lots of eateries and bars and a marina. Within the grounds of the hotel, there are good quality tennis courts and a football pitch as well as mini golf and a kiddies waterpark. The hotel and Kos in general felt very safe and the local people are really friendly. We would return to Kos and The Blue Lagoon in a heartbeat and would definitely recommend it for all ages. Thank you for a great holiday More
We've just this morning got bk from the blue lagoon resort in kos. Where to start. Fantastic holiday from start to end. As soon as we booked in we were given a welcome drink and was greeted by some very friendly members of staff. The men who drive buggies are always helpful stopping to see if you need a lift.We had a very spacious room in the satellite area. Very quiet and perfect for families. All restaurants are very clean and always plenty of staff to look after you. They are very strict with the long trouser policy for men. The piano bar is great by day nice and quiet. Its also lovely and relaxing in the nights.One thing we didn't know is that you are given towel cards when you arrive you can collect clean towels every day. I wish I'd known because we are a family of 4 I took two towels each which took up a lot of space and weight in our cases. We recommend you visit kos town it's only about 5 minutes in a taxi which costs â¬8 or you can have a bus which is 2 euro each. We also did a boat trip which was the highlight of our two wks. It was amazing we even seen some dolphins. Would definitely go bk. Happy holidays all âºMore
