You’ll find great food and a friendly atmosphere at these apartments, a favourite with TripAdvisor reviewers.
Given how small this family-run place is – there are just 22 apartments – the pool is a really good size. Home-made food is served all day, and the hotel has views across open fields and olive groves.
The apartments are in a quiet spot just outside Tingaki. It’s a 10-minute walk to shops and tavernas, and when you fancy the beach, Tingaki’s sandy number is a 20-minute walk away.

Excellent family run apartment hotel
just spent two weeks here at The Mayflower, a little off the beaten track, but what a hidden gem, lovely family run hotel, very friendly, kind, generous people who couldn't do enough for us. Excellent food served here, spotlessly clean rooms. Beds a little hard but you can't win them all. Swimming pool was superb and the views from the rooms are either over the pool or looking out on to the stunning scenery. Greek night BBQ every Monday was fantastic, nothing to much trouble. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you to Eleya, Christos and all the staff for a most enjoyable holiday. The Whelan family.More

Great small friendy hotel off the main strip
I have just come back from a two week stay with my girlfriend in Tigaki at the Mayflower and we liked it so much we've already booked to go back. The swimming pool is a great size given the small amount of apartments the Mayflower has. There are two pool tables and a fuzzball table near the bar. The food is unfussy and well-priced. The family staff are really friendly and helpful - we had a slight problem with our shower when we arrived and they sorted it out while we were out for the evening with no fuss or bother. The hotel is family friendly but the kids pool area is not overly large, but that said the shallow end of the pool is quite big and easily accessible. They have a Greek night on Mondays which involves a barbecue and some traditional dancing where you are encouraged to join in - but it's not everyone's idea of fun I guess and the dancers won't force people if they really aren't interested. When we were there it was in school term time in the UK and so there were only a couple of families and most other people there were retirees. It seems to be only Brits who stay here unlike some of the other places in Tigaki which cater for all nationalities. Tigaki main road is only about ten minutes walk away and the beach about twenty minutes. The only negative I can possibly think of is that, due to it's relatively 'rural' location, the hotel does suffer from noise in the night - but rather than cars and mopeds, it cockerels and barking dogs (and the odd peacock).More

Peaceful and charming!!
***FIRST DAYS*** A peaceful family run hotel with helpful, friendly and caring people. Our first impression was that it was very isolated from shops and restaurants etc, but is actually only a small and scenic walk from the main strip of Tigaki. On our first full day, our helpful and cheerful rep Lee gave us a warm welcome and informed us about nearby restaurants and recommend excursions. **TRIPS*** One of three of the trips we went on was to Bodrum, Turkey. We took a coach with an english speaking guide to the Port. We then took a 45 minute ferry to Bodrum. We were brought on another coach around some of turkey: jewellers, ancient city, amphitheater and were brought to the ruins of windmills where we all rode on camels! Then went for a few hours of shopping. We definitely recommend this trip. We also went on a bus tour around the whole island of Kos, seeing the hidden gems of the island with an english speaking guide. Zia at night was our final trip. We booked a table in advance when we visited Zia in our previous trip. We watched the sun go down in a Greek taverna. Zia is a village at the highest point of Kos. There are a few restaurants and a lot of gift shops there, again brought directly from a 5 minute walk from our hotel to Zia. ***THE HOTEL*** The hotel was all English and Irish people staying there. We always had people to talk to and our teenage girls even made friends. The staff were very helpful and kind and put in very hard work all of the time. It had a kids pool and an adults pool with shallow end (around 1m deep) and deep end (1.80m deep). There is No worry even at the peak of holiday season of waking up early to put out your towel to reserve a sun lounger. The parasols were brilliant as they still let in sunlight without being in the full heat of summer sun. The food was excellent in the hotel and in all nearby tavernas, spacious and clean rooms, very relaxed atmosphere. Busy beach nearby. We rented bikes to cycle along the back roads that connect to the main road, a good addition to our stay. Lilos and rubber rings were there for anyone to use for free. Be aware of mosquitoes- bring repellent an citronella candles to light occasionally. Dana, Alikeys, The Kitchen and were our favourite restaurants. ***SPECIAL MENTION*** Our holiday would not have been as good as it was without or rep lee. He gave good advice and was very experienced. He sorted everything out for us and none of our trips would have been possible without his help. Thank you!!!More

Will definately return...........
First visit to these apartments and we were not disappointed. The apartment was spotless and the pool was lovely no problem getting a sun lounger. The food was very good and reasonably priced so you could just stay there and relax. The family who own the apartments were very welcoming and would do anything for you. Would definately recommend these apartments. On another note we were very impressed with the Thomson Rep (Lee) who was there every day and was very helpfulMore

Wouldn't have stayed anywhere else.
Me and my partner stayed here for a week late June! I'm very particular with cleanliness and quality assurance and I could not fault any aspects of the apartment or grounds! The staff are very welcoming and make you feel relaxed and catered for, which is what you need on a holiday! (We highly recommend the Greek night on Mondays, beautiful food and great entertainment!!) The pool area is peaceful and there is enough sunbeds and pool space For maximum capacity and even then you've got ample space. The staff really do make the stay worth while and nothing is too much for them. We stayed in room 205, which was pool facing and had the sun on it lunch time until sunset. We'd highly recommend the apartments, they're close enough to the strip and sea and there are local supermarkets across the field. They also make a mean cocktails!!! :D The only downfall is the Mosquitos, as there is a salt lake nearby therefor they are out in full force!! Take plenty of repellent. (The rooms have mosquito net doors which are great!) More
