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.

Enter a stranger leave a Friend
Well really it is our 5th time coming to the Mayflower. Why the review title some one brought a plaque for them and this is in reception so very true. There was a special addition to the family and we meet little Daphne who is now 10 months old and so cute. Also additions this year were new sheets/pillowcases with the Mayflower printed on, lovely new towels, shower curtains, new sun beds etc. The maintenance of these apartments are great. Gardens kept lovely....just a great place. Always such a warm welcome, just love this place it is like going home. Many thanks once again to everyone at the Mayflower see you next year.More

Clean, comfortable and dry friendly
We were there for two weeks in May/June 2015, booked through a Thomson package. The good experience started as soon as we walked through the door, late at night, as we were checked in, in our room and unpacking within a minute or two. Our self catering apartment was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. It was cleaned regularly (spotless), towels changed every couple of days, with bedding changed regularly. Our cleaning ladies were lovely and friendly, looking after us well. As our room faced north, it was cool enough for us without having to use the air conditioning (available for a few Euros per night, as with most small apartment complexes in Greece). The view at sunset from our small balcony was wonderful.The pool and lounge area are well maintained and clean and comfortable and perfectly adequate for the number of rooms (about 20). Safe boxes for valuables are available for hire at a few Euros per week (located in the reception/lounge area). The apartments are family owned and managed, with the owner, a lovely Greek lady, and her son operating the reception area and bar. They were incredibly helpful, with nothing being too much trouble. We don't eat meat and they bent over backwards to cater for us. Meals were tasty, freshly prepared and with good helpings. Local beer is on draft, cool and not expensive. The hotel has a BBQ, with Greek dancing, every Monday evening, a bargain at 12 Euros each, and only 7 Euros for us vegetarians and children. The food was wonderful. The dancers put on a fun-filled professional display and do their best to get everyone to join in - do it, it's great fun. The apartments are about 800 metres from the beach. There is a well stocked supermarket about 400 metres away. The local bakery is about 400 metres away, offering heavenly products. The only real downside with the area was the mosquitos - apparently this is limited to two or three weeks of early summer, when the nearby salt lake dries out. If you go at this time of the year, we'd advise taking a strong spray-on repellant and a bite relief preparation, as the bites are vicious. This isn't a problem confined to the Mayflower apartments, by the way, the entire area suffers from the problem, so we haven't let it reduce our overall rating for the hotel. The only other thing we feel visitors need to be aware of is that they don't take credit cards for payment for meals, etc., it's cash only. Given the current Greek economic problem and the mistrust of the Greek banking system, you can fully understand that - just make sure you have enough Euros with you. More
we stayed at the mayflower on the 20/05/15 for 1 week ,as we arrived late at night we didn't get a good view of the hotel till in the morning, and I can honestly say what a lovely looking hotel with very well kept gardens and grounds and the pool area was fantastic , the inside was very clean and tidy our studio was great nothing broken or damaged. The hotel is a family owned and ran who's wish is to make your stay perfect and to which our stay was....the food was great. the hotel location I thought was just right not to close to the main drag which meant no traffic noise also their seemed to be for couple , even though their were a couple older kids which also kept the noise level down . we can honestly say that we will be going back as we could not find a down side to this hotel, and I did not want to leave a review just because I don't want this beautiful place ruined and just wanted to keep it to myself, but that wouldn't be fair on the lovely Greek family that work so hard to make us happy ....keep up the good work.......dave and chris room 111More

BEST APARTMENTS IN KOS
We looked online and in brochures ,noted comments on trip advisor and took a chance on this self catering hotel. The choice exceeded our expectations in every respect and should we return to Kos this the only place to go. OK we travelled in early May and the season was just beginning for all the shops and tavernas and there was a noticeable increase in population the second week. The Mayflower has 22 rooms, some overlooking the magnificent clean pool, some facing the mountains towards Xia others in the garden blockto one side of the main unit. The hotel is family run and they are so friendly and helpful you instantly feel at home, nothing is too much trouble. We looked for self catering but never actually cook ( its a holiday!) and the hotel mini restaurant served a great selection ( with requests as well ) all day ; try that in the flash hotels in Psalidi.! The location is on a quiet back road 10 mins walk from the shops and tavernas of Tigaki and also a large supermarket, the beach is a long stretch of fine sand and is 10 mins farther on. The apartments are favoured by repeat visitors, for best relaxation avoid school holidays and select a room facing the hills. A small torch is advisable if walking home late at night and mosquito repellent is advisable also after dark. The resort of Tigaki is central to the island and the many other resorts can be easily reached by the large variety of motor vehicles available ; look out for cyclists at night they have not discovered lights yet! The hotel motto is 'Enter as strangers leave as friends' and we did.More
we have just come back from having spent a week at this hotel. we found the place to be a real gem. the hotel is spotless, every area is gleaming. the apartments are large and have everything you need for day to day needs. its a family run hotel and everybody are extremely friendly and approachable. the food served is good quality and would eat there when we did not want to venture far. only slight gripe was the bed was a little hard for our liking but that's been really picky. we loved the place and would recommend it to anybody who is thinking of bookingMore
