    I used to work the summers in Rhodes back in the day and a fair few Brits ended up in Kos prison which I hear wasn't the best experience. Reminds of a quote: Morning sex is great---Unless your in prison
    You make me

      Went there 20 years ago and stayed about half an hours walk out of Kardamena. The Greek army were camped on the beach just down from our hotel so we couldn't get on to the beach there. Went on a trip to Nisyros which as stated above was fascinating ( and a bit smelly) as you can walk right down into the caldera of the volcano which they told us was expected to blow within the next seven years ( as far as I know it hasn't). Were I to go back again I may think about going to Kos Town which looks lovely. Trying to decide where to go this year and thinking of going back to Rhodes.

      Went years ago with a couple of mates. Needed a week off on my return to recuperate. At the time it was approx 30p a pint.....How I survived that week I will never know.

      Went there last year. Really nice place with lots of interesting places (Asclepion), quite a few boring ones (Honey Farm) and some great bars on the coast. Clubs are about the same here as anywhere else in summer, no complaints from me at all.

      Except the lack of cider.

      Went to Kardamena with a mate on a late online deal a few years back. Only realised when we got to the the transfer coach that I'd accidentally booked us on an 18-30 holiday. Sake! Between us, we had a combined age into treble figures The hotel had an extensive tariff on the back of the bedroom door listing how much the fine was for destroying individual items inside the room, including the beds. On the plus side, we had the pool entirely to ourselves most days while our fellow 18-30ers slept off the night before.

      Seem to recall there were some decent places to eat on the seafront. Fat Olive was brilliant! There was also a bar street where you could sit on a Saturday afternoon and - if you positioned yourself correctly - watch about three or four different Premier League games at the same time on different screens.

      Also blooming hot!

      As a couple have already stated, go to Nisyros on a boat trip, the coach trip to the top of the volcano will scare the sh$t out of you but worth it.

      Been a few time over the years. Kos Town is very nice, Cosmopolitan, lots of 'Gin Palaces' in the Marina. Went for a meal in one of the restaurants there and the Greek owner had just moved back from Chichester!! Tingaki, Marmari & Kefalos are all very nice if you want things a bit quieter. Kardamena is the place if you want hectic night life, although there are some good bars and clubs in Kos Town as well. Open top jeep is the best way to get around the island, which doesn't take that long.
