Close to Kos Town, this hotel offers a great choice of pools, along with easy access to the beach.
The pools are what really sell this hotel. There are 4 main ones, each with its own draw – for example, one’s adults only, while another houses the splash park. Elsewhere, you’ve got 4 restaurants, including a Greek place.
Location-wise, the hotel is in a quiet spot just a couple of minutes’ walk from a sandy beach. And when you fancy exploring, it’s a few minutes’ drive to the island capital, Kos Town.
Buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dinner in the Greek, Italian or barbecue restaurants. Wine in the Italian restaurant has an extra charge.
Local alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks until 24.00.
Snacks at set times.
First Choice Kids’ Club caters for 3 to 11 year olds – so brothers and sisters can join in the fun together. And most of it’s completely free. It runs 5 days a week and – outside of peak season – there are parent and toddler sessions for under 3s, too. For your peace of mind, all First Choice Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least 2 of them on duty at all times. Plus there’s a strict sign-in and out system.
Twin room in annexe sleeps up to 3, with a double or twin beds and an extra bed, shower or bath, mini-fridge, bathrobes, slippers and TV with music channel. Safety deposit box available at a charge. Cots are available on request.
Wonderful resort with superb main pool - 4 others available. Plenty of sunbeds always available. Great water-park included in the hotel grounds with slides and lazy river. All Inclusive package excellent, with good choice of restaurants, especially the barbecue restaurant. Staff were always friendly and helpful and the resort was spotless. Thomson Reps were very helpful, friendly and cheerful. The Animation team were some of the best we've come across, putting on excellent shows every night including Grease and Legends and they seemed to work around the clock! They were always friendly and outgoing.Good bus service into Kos town from outside the hotel every half hour which took 15 minutes. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable holiday.More

Returned in the early hours this morning from a week's stay at the Blue Lagoon and it was an absolutely fantastic stay. As already mentioned by other reviewers, the place is huge!!! There are a huge number of rooms available in a range of blocks, numerous swimming pools as well as a few bars and restaurants around the place. They have something for everyone there, whether you go as a couple, with some friends or as a family. The staff were very helpful and always courteous whatever you needed.
My husband and I stayed in the annexe area of the resort, which suited us as it was away from the busier main area. There were always carts dashing between the 2 areas, so if you were feeling lazy, it was always easy to catch a lift, but the walk back to the main reception area was not a long one in any case. In addition to the large main pool and children's pool in the main area, the annexe had 3 additional smaller pools. One of these was adults-only which really suited us - wish we had known about the adults only accommodation block when we booked, but it's one to remember for next time.
We stayed in the block above the bar and satellite reception, the room was large and we did actually have a sea view - albeit restricted. The only drawback of staying in the 8000 block was the noise from the Piano bar which would travel upstairs, especially when there were particularly drunken and loud guests there later in the evening - but that is more about some of the guests rather than the hotel.
The food in the main was very good. The main restaurant had a variety of dishes available every night, and we could always find something to eat. We also tried the Greek and BBQ restaurants. The BBQ restaurant was fantastic, though not typically the sort of BBQ we would expect or be used to from the UK, but there was a range of great dishes available. We were glad we had the opportunity to try it before the end of the holiday. The Greek restaurant was a bit of a disappointment for us, mostly because I think we'd had a vision of what we would expect from previous hotels and this was entirely different. That said, it was not bad, and we could say we had been and tried it.
The only other thing I think let the place down was the beach. We took a walk over to it on our first evening while exploring the resort and it was absolutely tiny. We simply didn't bother, making best use of the pools instead.
The location was good, buses to Kos Town were only a couple of Euros each, though we did have a bit of a wait as they are quite popular and a couple went straight past us because they were full. It was worth the trip though, and Kos Town is fantastic to explore. By the end of the day, we were exhausted so didn't mind paying twice as much for a taxi back.
In all, I think we would definitely look to revisit the Blue Lagoon again to make more of what they have available that we didn't take advantage of this time round.More

IF YOU ARE DISABLED TAKE PLENTY OF HELPERS ITS HUGE !!!
Arrived at resort at tea time ! starving and gagging for a drink having done more walking than for ages,, i wrongly expected a resort of this size to have wheelchairs for hire WRONG i also thought on the island i would have been able to hire an electric scooter WRONG AGAIN .. it took two days to get a wheelchair through the reception 95 euro's for the fortnight so not too bad Thompsons reps wanted 150 euro's for the same deal so that would have been one hell of mark up for someones pocket eh and the mossies are vicious , the little B sss bit me to bits even with 50-50 deet anti bite spray on.all over i forgot that when you go to the toilet and wash your hands you need to re apply it and got seven bites on hands first night thats moans out the way now for the better stuff The main resturant is a bit like Butlins but its self service and a reasonable variety is available for most and as one of our girls is coeliac a special meal was prepared for her in all eateries so not too bad all in all .....ALL the staff were very good without exception , the supermarket was well stocked with a good variety of goods and the bar staff were usualy waiting for you to finish your drink so they could fill you up again thats what service used to be like . there are golf carts to ferry you around the complex but nowt to the beach which in a wheelchair is a bit dodgy on a 3 ft wide walkway if a pushchair with a child in is coming the other way and a mad russian expects you to back up 50 yards , most were o k though my granddaughter got married at a venue up a mountain and it was "wonderfull " tho the same drinks tended to vary in price but once told it didn't happen again alltogether a couple of weeks in a not quite 3 star that is down as 4 star (NOT IN THIS WORLD) would it make 4 star thompsons i have been in better 3 stars in majorca but its good if you have children with waterparks and kids pools etc all overseen by life guards and security staff with snacks available all day and ice cream unlimitedMore
PERFECT for families
We were in Blue Lagoon Resort for 6 days on August, and based on our experience it is PERFECT for families !
Although the family room was a simple one (not luxuries/modern at all) it was very big - 2 separate rooms which can easily contain a couple with 3 children - and has a huge bath room.
The food was delicious for both adults & children and included all the great treats of the all-inclusive program (crepes, sandwiches, pizza etc ...), the hotel pools & the water park (lazy river, splash pool, slides) were awesome, the entertainment team was wonderful and the a' la Carte Italian restaurant was absolutely superb ! (and no trouble to book it)
On the down side I can mention the following:
1) the beach is miserable, very rocky and no water sport is available ...2) hotel charges money for the sun beds on the beach and the safe in the room (!) .....3) a free wi-fi is not available
4) families with very small children need to take into account that the resort is huge in terms of distance between the buildings/restaurants/water park HOWEVER there are golf carts that can save you the walking
All in all we had a fabulous time in the Blue Lagoon Resort and we definitely recommend !!!More

Great holiday had at the Blue Lagoon Resort Kos Town
We stayed at the Blue Lagoon Resort near Kos town for 2 weeks in September 2014, the journey from the airport was about 45 minutes including several drop offs before we arrived at the resort, a very friendly reception area with helpful staff checked us in to our room which was room 9503 in the annex on the far side of the resort, we were taken to our room in a golf type buggy by the porter who showed us most of the resort on the way including the main restaurants the spa the many different pools and bars along the way, the resort is enormous and takes about 10-15 minutes to walk from the reception area to the annex area where we had our apartment, the room was very well equipped with a very comfy twin bed, LCD tv, coffee making facilities a nice sized fridge with ice box, the usual safe (15 euro per week) tucked away in a large wardrobe, a nice sized bathroom with bath and in bath shower with shower curtains, a wall mounted hair drier with integrated shaver point, the only drawback with our accommodation was the lack of drawer space only one fairly large drawer was in the room and one small drawer in each of the bed side units (approx. 7x10 inches) so we used the third bed (single bed) as a store for some cloths shorts tops etc, we had a nice private walled terrace area as we were on the ground floor, entered via a patio window at one end of our room with a round table and a couple of chairs full sun in the afternoon, we mainly used the adults only pool which was a 3 minute walk from our room it had its own bar and also backed on to the breakfast restaurant, we never had a problem getting a sunbed at the adult only pool, there is a small shop/store near the reception (next to the small church) which sells most things handy if you run out of sun cream etc, the 3 speciality restaurants are all very good the bbq restaurant was our favourite but also the buffet restaurant is very good with a great variety of food on offer, if you fancy a visit to Kos town take the bus only 2 euros each way it saves a long hot walk (45 mins) the busses run every 30 mins from just outside the resort. Overall its a very well maintained resort, very clean, the staff are very helpful and the choice of food is very good, the all inclusive drinks were very good the red wine was very nice and fruity also the beer was light and easy to drink, also we found the free wifi works a treat in the piano bar and the adult pool. We will definitely consider returning in the future.More
