Close to beach, clean accommodation, friendly staff - one of the owners actually put his arm around me and said 'welcome' to us on our first morning) and the receptionist will help with any problem you have. Excellent for families and couples on a budget- everything you need for self catering.
Air Con has started to be installed but the block I was staying in is yet to have it put in. You can get a fan from reception for a few euros per week but we arrived at 4am and the reception area closes at 2am so had to put up with the 1 million degrees centigrade Kos summer heat. You can get an English breakfast there but it isn't too good- go to Piggies, 5 mins away on the main road which leads towards the beach - they import their sausages from the UK and their bacon comes from Holland so good times.
We read the first review on this site of the Oasis Tingaki the day before we arrived, so we were really worried about the place but apart from the first morning when we didn't have a fan or any cold drinks (which was our fault for forgetting) my girlfriend and I had a great time. The apartment was a typical Greek self catering design - basic but clean and comfy beds and the place only cost us £300 each for the first 2 weeks in August, and I've stayed in much worse places for a whole lot more money. We bought a very good mosquito repellent with 35% DEET from Sainsburys so we didn't get bitten once during the two weeks we were there; even with the balcony doors open to let some air in. There are three blocks of apartments in this complex, each with 3 floors but there are no lifts so you will have to carry your luggage up the stairs - so don't over pack women (if you get a 'heavy' tag put on your luggage at check-in that means you over packed!) The owners are old gentlemen so don't expect them to injure themselves carrying your 6 months supply of shoes.
The swimming pool is lovely and the beach is a short walk (about 15 mins past the donkey from the Shreck movie).
We met people who were on their 9th visit and we really enjoyed it also.
