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.

Visited this isolated resort. Like a small town with many facilities for a good holiday. Sadly, most of the staff are poorly paid eastern Europeans, the resort could be in any country around the Med. I suspect it contributes little to the local economy. Sorry, but not my 'cup of tea'.More

Our family visited this hotel and it was excellent, the food choice and food quality was very good, there was pancake stand open all day with choice of fillings ice creams and cocktails all included in the all inclusive price. The entertainment team were excellent and the pool is huge, plenty of sun beds for everyone. There is car hire available in the hotel and bike hire just a cross the road. Kos town is about 30 mins walk and there are lovely restaurants, shops and the harbour there. I would go to this hotel again although summer prices can be quite expensiveMore

Perfect hotel & holiday
Myself, husband & 7 year old daughter holidayed here in August 2014. The resort was recommended to us by friends. We paid Â£1000 each for 11 nights All Inclusive. Check in was friendly & swift. We were taken to our room on a golf buggy. We had a ground floor room & had everything we needed. The main pool got quite busy & beds were hard to come by if u didn't get there early. Despite notices a lot of people would get up early place towels on beds. When too busy we went to the hotels Aqua park, which is on site. We got beds every time but didn't use them whilst there. We were too busy enjoying the slides & eating pizza, chips, crepes, ice cream & slushes. Always a huge choice cooked fresh. We used the pirate pool too great for kids. Book early for the barbecue, Greek & Italian restaurant. We were lucky to go to the Italian twice. They will try flog u expensive bottles of wine, but don't push it. The food everywhere was plentiful, amazing & fresh. Be prepared to put on half a stone whilst there. It's too irresistible. The main restaurant near reception often got busy & occasionally we were short a knife, fork or plate. However once u inform staff they are on the case & can't do enough for you. This holiday was the most we'd paid each as usually kids may be cheaper. That said the staff, hotel, food, entertainment & experience was worth every penny. I would most definitely recommend this hotel. My friend that recommended it to me 2 years ago has managed to book for this summer booking early & bagging a free child place.More

amazing family holiday
We went to the hotel for our wedding. We travelled with 3 children ( ages 7,9,11) as well as other family. ( stayed in June) The hotel is big but this means no where is too crowded, there are plenty of places to escape too. All the blocks of rooms are low, no high storey buildings being over looked. The shop on site is very good, well stocked and not too expensive. Food - there is plenty to choose from at the variety of restaurants. We always managed to find places to sit & it wasn't too busy. Food quality is excellent. Staff very helpful. You do have to wear trousers in the evening ( men) except the bbq restaurant. Try all the restaurants, booking is easy, there was always somebody around at breakfast time to make reservations. Drinks - plenty to choose from, lots of bars to go to, never seemed to wait to get served. The piano bar was excellent - we went regularly in the evening, drinks brought to the table, fantastic with our kids, making childrens cocktails, entertaining them, very friendly. blue lagoon cocktail is very nice x Staff - great! any problems just tell them and it will be sorted straight away. rooms - massive, loads of space, great storage, we had a huge room, balconys on both bedrooms, 2 double wardbrobes, everything you need. Kettle, tea, coffee, fridge, water in it on arrival ( save the bottles & refil at any bar / poolside / restaurant) maids were great at sorting / cleaning our room, excellent job. Can't fault the hotel really. Pools - excellent pools, outside areas, massive pools & small ones, something for everybody. Water park - great for our kids, (maybe not for older children, but there is a big water park quite near.) lazy river, play park / slides in the water, plus bigger slides. poolside food very good, still in the all inclusive even at the water park. we were advised about trips , buses etc. ( we went on a myths & legends tour in kos town, a pirate cruise & a day at paradise beach - all good) excellent, would go againMore

I definatly would never recommend anybody to visit this hotel,it is definatly not a 5 star I would put it as a 3. We visited as a large party for a wedding and was extremely disappointed. The staff were the worst I have ever come across,they were rude and very unhelpful everywhere in the hotel apart from the maids,they were lovely. The look of the hotel is nice the grounds and pool are great, the evening entertainment is good if it started on time. Food was good just got very repetitive by the second week, drinks were awful and I could not drink another glass of wine from a plastic tumbler. Males had to wear long pants every night which I thought was ridiculous even in the main restauraunt the staff couldn't stress enough that this was a 5 star hotel and they had to wear pants, but yet every time we went to eat at any restaurant we had to stand at a table waiting for it to be set and walk around trying to find cutlery, in my eyes this is no where near a 5 star. I could go on and on so overall an overrated hotel and would not returnMore
