Soaking up the sun by the pool before enjoying a drink in a harbour-side restaurant under the ramparts of a medieval castle… The Kosta Palace Hotel in Kos Town is perfect for the Greek island holiday you’ve always dreamed of.

With a choice of rooms, including self-catering apartments for larger parties, the Kosta Palace Hotel is beautifully fitted out and good value for its four-star rating. All rooms come with summer air-con, TV, hairdryer, fridge, bath and shower, and balcony views. There’s free Wi-Fi in public areas.

Staff at a 24-hour reception can help out with everything from renting a bike for the day – or car hire if you want to sit back – to advice on getting to know Kos Town.

It’s the setting that really catches the eye though. Close to the harbour that is the ancient centre of this pretty island capital, many of the Kosta Palace’s balconies look out over bobbing yachts to the town’s castle.

Kos is one of the most popular Greek island destinations. It’s one of the larger islands, so it’s possible to enjoy a real mixture of experiences, from busy resorts full of lively bars and restaurants to secluded coves and stunning ancient history.

As the capital Kos Town probably has the best of the island’s historic sites, including a well-preserved Roman theatre, the 13th-century castle, and a tree that claims descent from the one under which Hippocrates, the ancient founder of the medical profession, is said to have taught his students.

Among the island’s best beaches are Kardamena and Kefalos on the south coast. Kos Town’s own beach, Zouroudi, is popular, with plenty to do above a stretch of sand and pebbles. Lambi beach is one of the most highly rated local alternatives, and the thermal springs at Embros, give an extra – and possibly healthy – attraction to that beach.

Kos Town offers a fantastic variety of attractions – historic, modern, even international if you throw in a short ferry trip to Bodrum in Turkey – and the Kosta Palace Hotel puts visitors right at the heart of a perfect Greek island experience.

The ancient port and popular holiday destination of Kos, the capital and major town on the island, has been home to Egyptians, Romans, Venetians, Ottomans and the Knights of St John. Their marked presence can be seen in the ruins of the Roman baths and amphitheatre remains and in the 15th-century castle, built by the Knights of St John, which still stands as a supreme sentry today.

There has been much development over recent years, with apartment blocks stretching out to the suburbs of Lambi and Psalidi (to the north and south respectively), however Kos remains a fascinating and cosmopolitan town with a good mix of culture and entertainment attracting thousands of holidaymakers each year. There is a busy nightlife with no shortage of bars and hotchpotch of restaurants from English-style cafes to local tavernas - many situated around the old harbour area overlooking traditional fishing boats and sleek yachts. The main beach in town is a fairly narrow, shingle affair packed with beach chairs and umbrellas, but there are better beaches a short bus journey away. Kos Town is perfectly situated for taking boat trips to Turkey and the nearby islands.

Activities

The main beach in Kos Town is narrow and pebbled, but nearby Tigaki is 6 miles (10km) of pure white sand. Lambi, Psalidi, and Agios Fokas are all popular beaches in easy distance. The beaches offer a range of water sports, including waterskiing, parasailing, and banana rides. The town also boasts a number of historical and cultural attractions, including the Hippocrates Tree, Knight's Castle, and Archaeological Museum. You can also visit nearby villages with interesting sights like the ruins of old Pili and the ceramics shops in Zia.

Restaurants

There are many restaurants in Kos clustered along the waterfront and around the main square, ranging from traditional Greek to Italian, Chinese and western. Bittersweet Creperie is a great bakery for a midday treat, and Avanti serves great pizzas with a beach view. Caravan is a popular restaurant serving everything from traditional Greek food to pizzas and lamb chops, while Olympiada has a more local menu.

Nightlife

There are bars, pubs and tavernas scattered all over Kos Town, but the unlabeled 'bar street' is the place to go at night when it comes to life with bars and discos. The party lasts until dawn, and offers an eclectic mix of music, from local bouzouki orchestras to thumping electronic beats.

Shopping

Kos Town is the major shopping destination on the island of Kos. There are a number of souvenir shops along the seafront and in the old town, and the market in the centre of town selling spices, olive oil, and seashells. There is also a small indoor market, but the main shopping area is found between Eleftherias Square and ancient Nymphaion. Popular souvenirs include jewellery, leather goods, and clothing.

Negatives

The nearest sand beaches are several miles from town, and the nightlife can be overwhelming for tourists looking for a quieter holiday.
