These Gold Award-winning apartments do simple with style. They’re comfy and unfussy, which means they’re ideal for families and couples looking for a good-value place to stay. But they’ve got that little something extra that sets them apart.
First up, they’re family-run, so the vibe is really friendly. The location is great, too. Just outside Tingaki, they look out over open fields, olive trees and mountains in the distance. Factor in gardens, which are filled with lime, lemon and pomegranate trees, and it’s every inch the relaxing setting.
The property itself teams peachy-pink exterior with a neat lobby. From there, all the public areas are bright and orderly, with little touches like potted plants giving them a cared-for feel. The rooms are fairly basic, but they’re all light, spacious and comfy. They’re well-equipped, too, with sitting areas, kitchenettes, balconies and satellite TVs.
Outside, the wavy-shaped swimming pool has a circular section for the little ones and is framed by a terrace and pretty flowers. Blue sunloungers and a snack bar complete the picture. The owners also host regular barbecue and Greek nights, where everyone gets together round the pool.
Lastly, if you fancy time by the sea, the sandy beach at Tingaki is 20 minutes’ walk away. You’ll also find a good choice of shops, tavernas and restaurants closer by, in the village itself.

Brilliant Relaxing Holiday
Spent a lovely and relaxing 2 weeks in the May/June sunshine. The staff were lovely and very friendly. Our apartment overlooked the beautiful fields and mountains and was right at the other end of the building, so no noisy people walking past the door in the early hours of the morning. The apartment was basic but very clean and we had fresh towels and bedding every other day. If you are planning on using the room to make your own breakfast and cups of tea, make sure you bring your own dishcloth and washing liquid as these were not provided. The pool area was pretty quiet for the 2 weeks we were there, so there was always plenty of sunbeds free. The town and beach are only a 10 minute walk away with plenty of restaurants and bars. There is a local bus to Kos town (2 euros each way) with plenty of shops and the beautiful castle ruins. Even though there is a time table, the bus does arrive whenever it likes, so make sure you don't plan to get to Kos Town for a certain time. The sunset evening in Zia is a must - would definitely recommend Taverna Oromedon. The food there was excellent, as was the view and service. The waiters came round with jackets for the ladies who got a little chilly once the sun had gone down. We also went on the volcano experience which was lovely, but maybe not for those who aren't steady on their feet as the walk down to the volcano is a little dangerous. So overall, a perfect place to go for a relaxing and laid back holiday but plenty to do on the days you feel like exploring the island.More

Relax and unwind, enjoy!
Spent a lovely relaxing week here, 23-30th October. We travelled as a family of five. We were completely spoilt, as we were the only ones there! It is completely true , you are treated as family... nothing is too much! The apartments are spotlessly clean, you have clean bedding and towels every other day, FAB! The only problem we had was that a lot of the town had already shut for winter. So very little choice to eat out.... we still managed though. A lot was to do with elia and christos, their hospitality was second to none. Not forgetting little May , their lovely dog, keeping the kids company, they enjoyed fussing her, as much as she enjoyed being fussed. I think if you choose to book late in the season, take into consideration that a lot of the town starts closing mid October. We still found plenty to do. The Turkey trip is worth doing. Its only 25-45 minutes by ferry. And Zia was lovely , having said this once the sun sets you need to make sure you have a warm jacket because the temperature plummets. By day we were having temperatures of 25-28. There is a local bus , which takes you in to Kos Town for 2 euros .If you are in Kos Town , try IDEAL its elias other business that is run by her hubby and lovely daughter Zoey... We would go back but earlier in the season so we can see and experience more.More
A lovely place to relax and unwind
We got back in the very early hours of today the 24th October after a two week stay at the Mayflower. Ourselves and fellow travellers arrived there late at night and were greeted by Christos with a very warm welcome. We were shown to our room and then came down to the bar for a nightcap, very much appreciated after the long journey from home. The bar is open until 2 a.m. Every good thing that has been said about the Mayflower and the owners and staff is so true. It is a lovely place run by lovely people. If you want to go into the village you will need to either like walking or hire a bicycle or a motor to get to the shops, eateries, beach etc. There is a regular bus service to Kos town and there is a timetable on the reception counter. There are plenty of travel firms on the way down to the beach, selling day trips to places like Kardamena on Kos or Bodrum, Rhodes and Bubble Beach etc. most of these firms do money exchange at a decent rates. We found out, too late, that the exchange rate was better in England. This time of year is extremely quiet in the resort as almost everything will be closed by the 31st, the end of there holiday season and quite a few of the businesses close before this but we still had some good meals out and really enjoyed the peace.More

another lovely holiday
We have just returned from the Mayflower Apartments, this was our 6th visit, so you can tell we love it, it was just as lovely as always, great to see Elia Christos and Debbie again, they always welcome you like part of the family. We had room 103 this time, overlooking the mountains, I love that view, it is so quiet and peaceful, all the rooms are cleaned everyday, and the towels and sheets are changed regularly, the cleaning ladies are always happy and smiling, nothing is too much trouble for anyone at the Mayflower. The BBQ night on monday is always good, plenty of good food, and the greek dancers are a lot of fun. We had a few bad days while we were there, with rain and really cold winds, never thought I could go to Kos and be cold, but it didn't last long, not like here in England, the sun came back and the heat with it, so all was well. Esperos is a lovely restaurant, bit of a walk but worth it, food excellent, Spyros is another nice restaurant, the bus trip to Kos town is really good, and worth a visit. The beach in Tigaki is excellent, 6 euro for 2 beds and umbrella, but if you go to Dana taverna for lunch, you can get free beds, so worth a visit. The Mayflower is very popular so its worth booking early, it is a really lovely laid back holiday, most people go back again and again, and Elia and Christos welcome everyone, whether you are have been before or first timers.More

Had the pleasure of staying at these apartments for two weeks end of September. Elia and Christos and all the staff were wonderful and contributed to a wonderful holiday, you really become part of the family. Rooms are kept immaculate by the friendly cleaners who always greet you with a smile. BBQ night is a must, great food and dancing. I could go on and on praising this place but all the other reviews say it all. Book it and you wont be disappointed. Special mention to friends we made whilst staying there, Jen and Morris and Nigel and Elaine, thanks for the memories:)More
