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.

Second to None
Visited October this year. A totally first class all round experience to the extent that we have booked again for June 2015....this time for two weeks. We have no hesitation in recommending the Mayflower to any reader who is currently undecided. Go for it! Sam and Gordon. Room 109.More
An enjoyable getaway at low seasons
We spent a week at the Mayflower at the very end of Sept/beg Oct. It was our first visit to Kos and we wanted to steal an extra bit of warm sunshine before the UK winter. We arrived at 4am and were very pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome and being shown to a lovely large corner apartment overlooking the gardens. The garden was full of fruit trees from oranges; lemons; kumquats; and even avocados. We had a verandah off our bedroom as well as at the rear of the apartment. It was a short few steps to the main restaurant and pool area, all of which was very attractive and clean. Owing to the time of year, there were plenty of guests but the place was always quiet. The Mayflower is about half a mile from the main road of Tigaki & the supermarket. It's mainly along a dirt track road and torch us useful on moonless nights. It's a pleasant walk especially during the day as there are more fruit trees and pretty views of surrounding countryside and mountains. The village shops were mainly on the one road where the tavernas, bars, car hire, excursion agents and feet nibbling fish spas were situated. There were two bus stops-: one at the supermarket at the top and one towards the bottom. At the bottom of the road is the beach. A long wide sandy beach overlooking Kalymnos. A few pebbles as you go in but warm even late season. If you like big beaches with lots of sunbeds & umbrellas this may be for you. We preferred renting a car and visiting the prettier smaller beaches further east of the island, Paradise beach was nice& calm; very sandy and had lovely sunsets - but busy even at low season. We rented a car for two days and went on a boat excursion round islands for one; caught bus to Kos on another. Kos town is a must and the bus is ideal. In fact to get anywhere by bus on the island it seems you must go from Kos. Zia is a pretty town for viewing sunset and nice restaurants again accessible by car, bus from Kos or excursion. Back to the Mayflower, the owners were very friendly and accommodating. They have a lovely, fun dog called May. I guess our only two slight annoyances which were outside the control of the owners were the noise from the nearby farm animals at night. Dogs barked throughout the night and cockerels crowing back and forth at each other. It may be that our apartment was closer to the road and that's why we were disturbed - but it did interfere with sleep & I would recommend asking for a room at the pool end of the complex. The other gripe was the mosquitos. Even late season. The complex is close to salt lakes, so they will always hang around. Other holidaymakers in hotels away from the salt lakes did not see a mosquito for their whole stay. However we were bitten badly (even with all our repellant and candles) as were other guests and put us off being outside and around the complex or in main bar/restaurant after dark. There is lots to do in Kos and many excursions to enjoy. The Mayflower is a spotlessly clean and friendly place to stay. As mozzies love me I would have to choose another area to stay next time. More
We stayed at the Mayflower first 2weeks in September 2014 , friends of ours had been the year before and recommended the it and it was just as they said it was....brilliant....we arrived around 11pm and as the supermarket was closed Christos gave us a bottle of water and some milk so we could make a drink,...when we booked ( a year in advance to get in)...we asked for a room over looking the mountains on the top floor, but we're given a room on the bottom floor over looking the pool, and have to say was realy nice, but, if when we book again would like a room on the top floor at the back, maybe the noise from the dogs, cockerels, sheep, hens, and anything else that decided to get up at the crack of dawn mite just block out and won't be as bad....ð...the hotel is spotless, rooms cleaned everyday bar Sunday, beds changed every 2 days, towels also...the apartment was big, bedroom has a mega powerfully hair drier, bathroom had lots a space and light, sitting room was huge, everything you needed to make your stay easy....balconeys were nice plenty room with a table and 2 chairs on each, .....the pool and area around was cleaned everyday,and there was loads of sun beds so you didn't have to worry about not getting one, un like some places we have been were you have to give the guards a tip to put out your towels, before they were snapped up by 6am.....sad peaple.....!!! .The hotel was just down a little track which lead onto the main strip, lovely little walk in the evenings, plenty nice places to eat and watch the world go by....but in all fairness the meals in the hotel were spot on, always hot always plenty full, and always with a smile....I would have been happy to eat there all the time , but it's nice to go out and about.....the Greek nights are a must, the food was way above excellent, and only 12 eruo each...not to be missed if you stay here....last but not least.....we have stayed in many hotel in many country's over the years but have never met such a lovely family and staff, there is nothing they would not do for you, they go out of there way to make your stay the most enjoyable you can have, we loved our stay at the Mayflower and will be returning but with family members too, we had a wonderfull 2weeks with very happy memories....and can't wait to return...ðððxxMore
