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.

Could be so much better !
I don't normally do trip advisor reviews but I want to let other couples know what to expect from this hotel. We went to the blue lagoon as a couple for a 10 night stay ,we were put in room above the piano bar . Its a standard room the beds fine a little hard but the pillows gave us both neck ache ! The shower is a right pain shower curtain sticks to you,And the water from the shower goes all over the floor making it very slippery .Also our room being above the piano bar it could be noisey ,as it's open till 1 and other guests just shout down the hallways . We only went to the big tent entertainment one night what we saw was very well done . We usually went for dinner quite late about 8.30,as we found it was a lot quiter then . Must say I'm gluten free and they did cater for me,had to talk to the head chef who was very accommodating . After dinner we would go to the piano bar ,well what can I say the guy singing sang the same set every night ! Very boring and most of the guests we spoke to where fed up of him,and just wanted him to stop singing .we understand it's a piano bar but the same songs every night is a bit much !! We hired bikes and went down to kos town,we also got the number 4 bus from outside the hotel for 2â¬ And we went to eat at the sunburnt arms,I would highly recommend it and the couple who run it are lovely . The beach is more of a shingle beach and you have to pay extra for sun loungers. We also had to pay 22euros for the safe . All in all I think the staff are great but the hotels to big and there are to many people to staff . Lots of reviews on here say don't stay in the satellite area,but if you are a couple I would say stay here, as there are less people and the adult only pool is in that area. We got a taxi from the airport instead of the transfer only takes 20-25 minutes instead of the 40 by coach. This hotel is defiantly better suited to families than couples .More

Brilliant Family resort
This was our 1st time in Kos, it was recommended by friends, the complex was huge and top class family entertainment. The entertainment was not only of a night time, but was through-out the whole day, staff were very friendly, the room and complex was very clean, with high standards. This was our first time going all inclusive, food was good, resort beach was very clean, the only problem with the beach was you had to pay for your bed's and there was not as much choice of refreshments as on the complex. Numerous restaurants and pools to choose from, would highly recommend the resort for families.More

Fantastic family get away!
We stayed here for two weeks 5-19 May. Apprehensive before we arrived as one nevernows what to expect, however from the on start we were impressed, walked into a bustling lobby with lots of fresh flowers, we were handed a glass of fizz and juice for our girls, a swift check in followed by hopping onto a golf buggy along with our luggage and being driven to our room, 3105. Swift check in, perfect! The room was lovely, we were two adults, 18 month old and 3 years old and it accommodated us perfectly. Hotel provided a travel cot, our three year old slept on a large pull our bed and we had two single beds pushed together which was fab. With all that we still had plenty of room in this spotless, airy and well designed room, with fresh flowers, complimentary bottle of wine/coffee/tea/fridge freezer full of bottled water (which they replenish if you leave the water bottles on the side rather than in the bin once empty) and cans of fizzy pop. There's a tv with an abbundance of channels from all over Europe. In the 'hall way' of the room was a large bench to pop your shoes away underneath and store bits on top of. A walk in wardrobe was in the side which had plenty of room to hang clothes/store suitcases and also a room safe. The good sized batheroom was clean and had a good ample sized (low) bath tub/shower and lots of towelt, bath robes, complimentary cosmetics, above all it was spotless. So far, so impressed. In the morning we woke up to a fab views of the pool area in front and to the right, the sea. We were thrilled. Restaurants were fab, lovely, fresh food of many varieties to suit everyone's pallett (though there's no pleasing some people what so ever) be it health concious, meat freaks, vegetarians, those who fancy something cultural (greek/chinese/russian cuisine etc) or those who fancy what they know (beans,steak&chips) In our opinion the food was fresh, the tables were clean and the staff work exceedingly hard to maintain standards and cleanliness. Mr Stafanos the restaurant manager is an amazing, welcoming, friendly and accommodating man who has a great rapport with everyone, a true credit to the hotel. The bar had a great selection and we never had to wait longer than a minute to have our order taken. Our girls loved the kids club, we went to the one provided by the hotel, there's also one provided by Thompson. There are so many pools I lost count, we couldn't believe how many options there were main pool, kids pirate pool, adult only pool at the satellite area as well as a family pool with different levels of depths starting at 0.2metres perfect for our independent 18 month old who loves to stand and be in control. Then more pools at the Aqualand with different slides, depths and a lazy river. Aqualand also had mini golf, tennis/football courts so something so everyone. The beach was across the road, not the worst beach ever however not the most amazing beach ever, we were quite satisfied, with lovely views looking onto nearby Bodrum (Turkey) â¬2.50 for one deck chair, a bar and snack (ham/cheese rolls) available all still part of the all inclusive hotel. We went at different times of the day and it was never heaving and had a nice, chilled out atmosphere. We hired a car for two days and explores the island, Zia is highly recommended for breathtaking mountenous sights, Kos was nice too â¬8 by taxi from the hotel or â¬2 by bus from outside the hotel, we also went to Pyli and had a lovely lunch from a taverns on the corner run by a lovely older couple, we wenf to Plaka forest which has peacocks (and stray cats) walking around which had a nice atmosphere, Kefalos was ok, the thermes was ok though we went on a hot day so the last thing we wanted was a dip in hot water (tip is that you can actually drive down most of the way rather than walking, handy if you have a push chair or difficulty with walking as it's a rather steep and long walk in the heat) great little cafe at the bottom once you get there. Anyway, all in all we had the best family holiday with a wonderful experience made so by the impeccible family friendly hotel, warm and hospitable staff and cleanliness of the highest standard. Highly recommended to all, happy holiday, enjoy!!More

Well worth a trip!
Have just spent a wonderful week at the blue lagoon resort kos. They pay so much attention to detail. For example they have little buggies to transport you and your luggage. You get a bathrobe,towels and slippers. The room had a hairdryer. You have 3 restaurants to chose lunch from and if you fancy a change for the evening meal, for the price of a bottle of wine you can have italian or greek. The food is good and if you miss breakfast they serve crepes and sanwiches 10am to 6pm. The pool is HUGE! The entertainment is as you'd expect. It is very clean and tidy. Even on the local beach the hotel have installed 3 toilets (not chemical). The cons are that in the afternoon they serve cakes and biscuits. These arent covered and birds were often pecking at them. Maybe a cover or net may help. I must say at the other times the food is covered. Well worth a visit!More
