Stayed at Kefalos from 9th to 13th March 2013 with two friends. Absolutely loved the village atmosphere as we could spend time walking around the resort in the evenings and down to the sea. During the day the pool area looked amazing with sea views in the background! It was pretty breathtaking to see that each morning on the way to breakfast.
The staff at the hotel were wonderful and could not do enough to help. We had issues with the bathroom basin taps on our first night and they sent someone to fix it straight away. When they couldn't fix it they offered us another room or to wait for the next morning for it to be fixed. We decided to stay in the room as the other room offered would have been further away from the sea.
The room was lovely, clean and quite large for three of us in a studio room and there were no problems once the tap was fixed, Breakfast could be slightly better as we had crepes one morning and never again. Some food was a bit oily but there was lots of variety on offer.
The night entertainment was brilliant at the hotel. I loved the fireshow by Ricco, and the Cypriot dancing which we all got to join in. The glass dance was really good!
The tourist sites were within walking distance and we walked to the harbour along the sea most days as it was a lovely walk even on the really windy day! We enjoyed the speed boats down at the harbour and visiting the shops and cafes there.
If you visit Paphos make sure you go out on an excursion. We went on the Akamas sea caves Jeep Safari and it was the best thing we did. Mainly because our tour guide Evis was hilarious and made it the best day of our holiday! Thanks to the restaurant owner of The Marina near the hotel who knew Evis and helped save our holiday by booking the excursion for us the night before, when our booked tour was cancelled last minute. They also gave us free drinks the day we were leaving!:D
Everyone in Cyprus is really friendly and helpful, so I look forward to returning one day!
Definitely worth booking Kefalos!
