Nirides Beach Apartments details
Backed by mountains and overlooking the beach, these family-run apartments offer up a snapshot of the island’s most scenic side.
If you're looking for a friendly base where you'll feel more like one of the family than a guest, this hotel is a great option. The owners, Stavros and Smaro, really go out of their way to make you feel at home.
Then there's the setting to consider. The apartments are on the seafront in Psalidi, just footsteps away from their own sand-and-shingle beach, which comes complete with complimentary loungers. They're backed by mountains, too, so first-class views are in no short supply.
Just along the coast, meanwhile, there's the hustle and bustle of Kos Town. It's around a 30-minute walk away or you can hop in a taxi and be there in 10.
Outside, the pool is the main attraction. It's a classic rectangular shape set just over the road from the sea. There's a snack bar at one end and a separate section for children.
Elsewhere, tennis courts and basketball hoops take care of daytime entertainment. In terms of food, the emphasis is on locally-sourced produce and homemade Greek dishes, there's even an organic farm right behind the hotel that grows fruit and vegetables for the restaurant.
Menu highlights include Greek salads bursting with feta and olives, calamari served with lemon wedges and mayonnaise, and boureki, filo pastry stuffed with meat or vegetables. And if that doesn't take your fancy, there's a supporting cast of classic dishes like fish and chips.
As for the accommodation itself, it's recently been treated to a refurb, so everything's fresh and bright. Apartments are simple but smart, with white walls, dark-wood furniture and sunny yellow, orange and red bed linen. Well-equipped kitchenettes come as standard, as do balconies, and TVs.
