On our second night in Israel my husband asked me if I would like to go to Greece for a week-of course I jumped at the opportunity! The last minute deals from Israel are inexpensive-and very family friendly.
We stayed at Peredise Family Resort near Kos Town. This resort is great for families with little kids. We had a suite with a small pool. There is a large resort style pool on the other side of the property along with a baby room, indoor playroom, playground, kiddie pool, and spa. We had a free breakfast and dinner buffet included with our room -and the food was fabulous! We looked forward to each meal-every night had a different theme, and lots of vegetarian options.
We mostly beach hopped: Tigkaki our first day, Paradise Beach the second day, and a small private beach in Kefalos our last day. Paradise Beach was our favorite-gorgeous sand and perfect water-hardly any rocks. There was a restaurant and bar next to the beach that we ordered ice cream and coffee from. The kids enjoyed swimming, building sand castles, and paddle boarding with their dad.
Back in Kos Town we walked around the pier, Kos Castle, and took a tour on a mini train. The kids adored every second on the mini train and I recommend it for the first day of the trip as it gives you an overview of the town. We enjoyed coffee and milk shakes in the town center and shipped for souvenirs in the market.
What I enjoyed most about the trip was our bonding time with our kids. Watching the kids get some much needed time with their dad who works long hours as a business owner providing for our family was so special. I love traveling-the magic of it-the closeness it creates in families.
