HI CAN SOME ONE TELL ME WICTH TOUR OPERATOR IS SUNSET APTS WITH THANKS TERRY
We went to Tingaki last August and found it really cheap, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from but if you are on a budget, Sagitaurus at the top of the road just past Marianna apts is very good value for money. Cycle hire is very cheap too which is great for getting around, easy cycle to Kos town as there is a lovely breeze on the island.
No problem Janice - we stayed at the Fili apartments about 6 years ago and they were lovely. Pool with slide for kids and a more secluded deeper pool as well. Food was fine and the staff were great. They are a bit out of town (in fact, just 2 minutes from where we are going again this year, the Irina Beach), however the bus stop into Tingaki is right on your doorstep. I think it's about 1 euro 20 and takes 5 minutes. To walk will take you anywhere from 20 -40 minutes right along the coast, but dark in places at night. Beach is gorgeous, sandy and safe. Restaurants are all pretty good and whilst I have my favs, everyone is different so I'll let you enjoy and decide :) Low key nightlife with a couple of bars (maybe disco?) if you fancy a change. We hired bikes from a place just 5 mins from the apartments on the sea road and this is a great way to get about. Also worth hiring a car as the driving was ok and there are some lovely little areas dotted around the island. Ther can be a bit of a breeze at times but it helps to cool down. If there is anything specific you need/want to know drop me a line and I'll see if I can help. cheers D
We are going to Tingaki staying at Miros Studios! any pics comments or info .Have read excellent reviews and hope they are so good.We are a party of 3 ladies and a 4year old going 13th June so hope the weather ok too.
Hi DaveMany thanks for your reply!
Hi there, hoping for some tips! We've booked Tingaki for next year,self catering and was wondering if there is a supermarket anyone could recommend to stock up with a few basics and the odd stay in on the balcony with a bottle of wine type evening? We have 2 boys who are always hungry so can't afford to eat out for every meal!! Also can anyone recommend any reasonable but nice restaurants please?
Hi Anne This is my 4th trip to Tingaki, I adore the place. We don't actually get back until the day before you go so my post on here will prob be to late however we stay at the Miros and I've just been looking at this years comments on trip advisor and there is a really good review that talks about Tingaki as a whole, prices where to go etc. There is a bus to kos town about 2 euros and make sure you have a meal at the meni. Have a great time x
My boyfriend and I are looking to book a last minute holiday and this resort has come up. Is it quiet? As this is what we are looking for. No 18-30 holiday atmosphere etc Many thanks Alison
thank you very much elaine, for your help, we will take traveler cheques, and we will say hi to irini for you many thanks again gillian taws
hi we are going to tingaki in 3 weeks time, whats best to take traveler cheques or use cash card, do they have many cash atm in the town center, also whats the best place to eat. we would be very gravful for any help.
Filoula, I just came back yesterday from Tigaki, so dont be afraid, there will be plenty of phonebox, specially if the place you are going to stay is near to the Tigaki Square.
Sharon, the cost is 2eu now for one way ride to Tigaki from Kos Town =).
Lisa T, there are plenty of car rental company in tigaki so i dont think you need to prebook, but if you really want to, perhaps the best option is to book the car from those car rental website, so you can pick them straight away from the airport.
Katie M, Theokritos Travel is still running i used one of their service when i visited Tigaki, and i just came back yesterday. But i didnt book any tour in advance, i just came to their office in Tigaki =)
I enjoy my stay in Kos so far, but didnt really like my choice of apartment. But now i know the area and knows all the apartments or studio i like, so next visit i will be more prepare then this year =)
Hey , i have a HUGE problem , i am going on holiday tomorrow with my friend and her mum , but i still want to contact my mum , do you know if there is a phone box / booth in tingaki , kos? if there is , can phone cards be used?
Sharon, you can catch the Tingaki bus from the main bus station just up the street from the big church. Ask anyone local and they will point you in the right direction. Ask the driver which bus, they are very helpful and it is only about 15 mins away. I seem to recall the cost is about £1.20. Hope this helps.
can anyone tell me which bus you can get from kos town to tingaki and were do you get it
Hi Wendy (Mitchell) we stayed at the Miros last year and are returning again this year. The apartments are lovely and the staff were great. The pool area is nice with a seperate (small pool) for the kids. Never struggled to get beds and we stayed middle of August. The beach is across the road and apart from a bit of shingle near the shore the sea is shallow and welcoming when the temps are as hot as they were last year. The walk into town each night is about 10-15mins but you are at the right side of the island for this not to feel isolated and its actually quite nice to do as you walk along the beach front so the beeze makes the walk! On the way to the 'square' there are a number of restaurants all serving great food and many with deals for the kids etc. Try the kids cocktails... not always advertsied and can be quite pricey so maybe wait for the last few nights but the kids love them when they turn up with sparklers and umbrellas in them!! If the kids want inflatables etc walk onto the main road in Tingaki as they are much cheaper and food etc is cheaper up at the main supermarket which you can catch the bus to right outside the apartments. Restaurant wise this will be our thrid trip to Tingaki and we love the Menai. People say its pricey however I think its reasonable and you get what you pay for. Never had a bad meal.
Does anyone know the email address of the Mythos apartments.
Does anyone know any Car Hire companies in Tingaki ?, as were going in August for 2wks and really want to prebook our car hire before we go.
Hiya, Does anyone know if Theokritos Travel are still running? I've emailled them about booking tours for this summer but have had no response. I'm also interested to know about the building works at the Marianna as I've booked there for August!
Do you know when the refurbishments will be completed? My boyfriend and I are booked to come to the Marianna in mid July and i'm worried that there is going to be lots of disruption and building work going on.
The Marianna is no longer using First Choice, I had a mail from Maria she says they are setting up a website and she would mail me when the site was up and running, she said it is possible to book direct with them.She also saidYou can book through Lowcostholidays.com, Hotels4u.com and Cosmosholidays.co.uk.
We are having a very busy spring because we are having a refurbishment at the hotel,
With a lot of additions in the rooms such as t.v.,microwaves e.t.c and changes at the public areas.
Does anybody know the best way to book the Mariana apartments? We stayed here a few years ago through First Choice and have been looking to go back this year but can't find it listed with any of the tour operators??
Hi does anyone have an email address (or phone number) for the Marianna Studios?! We are on a late arriving flight and need to make sure this is going to be OK! Thanks very much x
going aug to miros apt any one stayed their.and is the beach across the road nice.also best two places to eat and best two bars just to start me and the kids off boy aged 9 and twin girls 6 thank you wendy mitch leeds.
Just back yesterday from Tingaki and loved it, we stayed in the Mythos ApartHotel for 2 weeks, some info if you want it.
The is one ATM which is sometimes out of money in Tingaki, the other is 2 km away or you can use an ATM in Pyli by using the red tourist vehicle at the cross beside the fountain.(8 euros each)
Sunbed hire on beach is only 3 euros per day each.
Doctors are quite expensive with a normal fee of 50 euros for an injection for sickness and a prescription is around 28 euros.
The food is all quite similar being an Island however the Gyros is very fatty kebab which is the local food, everything comes with chips unless changed, the steaks are great and very cheap especially the fillet but is sometimes rare on the inside, I was told this is normal as the meat comes from a baby cow (never ate one again).
The bigger supermarket is far cheaper just a 10 minute walk by the beach.
The only gym i found was the Pelopas Hotel at 10 euros per session, 2 small Argos type benches which are on the verge of collapse, 100 kilos in smalll weight, a decent treadmill, 2 stationary bikes, 1 cross trainer and a broken rowing machine. (no air con so be prepared). The staff are friendly and you can use the toilet facilities.
The best tours were Tingaki Tours - a German run company, very friendly and a lot cheaper than anyone else including Thomas Cook whom we travelled with.(They also have internet that is available for 2 euros and a currency exchange), A word of warning is that there is a tour going to Bodram in Turkey for the day, this is a great experience however at the start they take you to the Gold Centre, lock you in and hassle you for ages to buy so be prepared if you dont bother with them you get to 'escape' to the toilet and cafe.
Take a camera on the 3 Island Cruise and be ready for the boat rocking with the waves, take plenty of sunscreen as it makes for the perfect tan, picture postcard scenery and a cool down in the water (even for non - swimmers).
Remember and put a few Euros in the pet charity if you can beside Tingaki Tours as they rehome and save a lot of discarded animals when the season closes on the Island., they also sell great calendars and other merchandise in the evening.
Overall a lovely relaxing holiday and i would highly recommend.

hi lynne, we had a reaaaaly good time, nice and chilled people brilliant, restaurant at mythos 1st class , sorry to say off to spain next year, partners choice. shall miss my bellini cocktails at memories bar
To my knowledge there isn't diving near Tingaki itself but if you look at website for Theokritos Travel. I believe they do diving days if that is of any help.
HI i am off to tingaki in oct and would like to know if there is any scuba diving.....close
Hi Mary - Donna's apartments are really lovely, I am sure she will be able to show them to you whilst you are there.
Hi Donna -I knew you would have the solution to Mary's problem. Our love to the family.
thanks donna, i will pop in and see you about books. your apartments look really lovely i looked them up on your website, if we enjoy tingaki, we might be interested too book for next year. see you soon maureen and hugh
Hi Mary - I haven't seen any book exchanges in Tigaki for some years now. I don't know where you are staying but many places keep books that have been left behind by other visitors for all to use.
hi all, does any happy holidaymakers know if their is a book exchange in tingaki. 5 days 2 go yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
We have just got back from Tigaki. It's a lovely resort with lots of fab restaurants, and a long sandy beach. The sun beds are 3 euro's a day but are well looked after.
We had a car and went to most of the other towns on the island. Tigaki is by far the best location if you want a nice, clean resort without loads of 18-25 year olds falling around drunk. There are enough bars, some with large TV's to keep you occupied through the night. The locals were very friendly and all spoke English well. There are also plenty of places to rent a scooter, dune buggy or bike to explore the region.
It is also close to Zia which is a village up in the mountain behind Tigaki. Zia is beautiful, with fantastic views over Tigaki, its surrounding area and the sea beyond. It too has some lovely restaurants and good shopping for souvenirs.
I would recommend Tigaki to any couple or family looking for a relaxed holiday, 34C each day, lovely sand and good food!
Thanks phil for the info it sounds a beautiful place ill let you know i we get on
tina and denny, thanks very much 4 ur reply. i was just a wee bit peeved by irenkas negative view on the area. cheers again mo
Mary macreadie we have been to tingaki twice before and are going again august and we absolutely love it as im sure you will,its a very friendly resort with some lovely taverna's and bars
My wife and I are also travelling to Tingaki on the 23rd for our 4th visit, we always stay at the Sunset Aparthotel (right across the road from Constantenos supermarket), great place. We like to eat at Grand salle or Rodini's both great food and good service, the Chinese restaurant is also very good if a little expensive. If you enjoy a quiet evening with good company and a great host you must make the effort to visit "Leftie" at his Margarita Cafe Bar, a real character.The bar is just north of the supermarket, a little way out I know, but well worth it. For a really good cocktail it has to be Cafe Ipanema, sparklers and all.
Hi lynn thanks for comments ill let you know how we get on roll on 23rd
Going back to Tingaki on the 4th September, really looking forward to another week of sitting in Andreas Taverna every night having a lovely meal with good company, if you're visiting Tingaki see you there, and if you like live music and a good dance visit Red House Bar. We've been visiting Tingaki twice a year for nearly 17 years, great resort, best beach on the island.
Denny we were in tingaki 25th june and the rate at theokritos travel was 1.26 to the pound,
Hello could someone tell me the exchange rate in tingaki £=Euro.Thanx in advance
Hi can anyone tell me what to expect price wise in tingaki? lots of people are telling me its very expensive, we are staying at angela apts do they have balconies and air con? any info would be helpful thanks
No offence taken, its nice to have advice, although mum is elderly she is young at heart and likes to keep up with the family but struggles at times.
Thanks for your reply i didnt fancy pushing her up hill
Mary, the air con is 6 euros per night in a one bed apatrment and if it's as hot when you go as it was last week you will need it
Can anyone comment on the "very steep" hill that leads to Mythos Apartments? Ive read that you get use walking up it but im not too sure how my mum will manage as she is 79 ! Please tell me its not that bad
We came back last week and they were charging 9 euros per kilo over weight but did'nt see any one charged all group booking baggage all weighed together so averaged out hope this helps
Thanks very much Lynne
Thanks lee we went last year and ate a lot in nissiotiko which has great food and very reasonable,Hoping to go back as we loved it there

Hi all, just a quick question my friend went to tingaki last year and has just returned again and said it has really got expensive.As we are looking to book tingaki could anyone tell me prices for meals drinks etc.Thanks in advance
the shop on the corner by the fountain roundabout is about the best one resonable prices for ciggies or theres a big supermarket at the other end of tingaki sells every thing but its a bit of a walk depending on where you are staying
You can buy ciggies at any of the supermarkets - the big supermarket at the top of the main street has a huge selection of ciggies and alcohol :) - one stop shop really....
