Me & my wife have just returned from a week stay at the archontia apartments, and to summarise it was a really nice relaxing break, and good value for money.
The apartments are in a great location, about 10 mins walk to the beach & bars, the views are amazing, we stayed on the first floor in room 19 and had panoramic views from the balcony of the whole bay & village, the apartments are spotless clean and simple but comfortable and would recommend them.
Kefalos itself is very low key, it was very quiet with tavernas having just a couple of people in, and the beach too was quite desserted, it depends what your after but we found the tavernas not very authentic, the only greek meal offered was mousaka and kebebs, after 1 week we had enough, the beach is not great either, its quite pebbly and could do with a really good clean up, along the beach is many half built buildings, so its not very pleasant to sunbathe next too.
We hired a quad bike - 30euros for the day, that was great fun and we went all around the island, kos town is very nice and like what traditional greece should be like.
The locals were very friendly and very helpfull, but I'm not sure how long kefalos can survive as a tourist resort! - the people have got heart but the place has no soul.
The sun shone everyday and for just a three and half hour flight kos is a great holiday destination, we will return but probably stay at Lambi or Marmari that are more traditional and have lovelly sandy beaches.
