“Great hotel and staff”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

My husband and I stayed there 14th - 28th July and had a great time. I loved the hotel, staff and location and it was all we wanted. Our children are now too old to be with us but it was fun to watch the children there playing and they were really well behaved. The bar and entertainment staff were excellent but all the staff were pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. The cleaning ladies were also extremely cheerful to say they cleaned the rooms six out of seven days – must be hard cleaning up after some people! Towels and linen changed regularly and pillows laundered which was lovely. Air con needed as so hot but it was in with the price so was another bonus - safety deposit box hire was cheap too compared to other hotels we've been to. We stayed bed and breakfast but tended to eat in the restaurant or pool bar - both supplied very good meals at reasonable prices. For anything else the supermarket was well stocked and the staff there pleasant and helpful. The pool was clean as were all the surrounding areas. We preferred the grassed area and there was no shortage of beds or umberellas and no big problems with some people 'saving' the beds early. Free beach towels available and waiter service at certain times of the day on the grassed area. Reception staff helpful and maintenance problems were solved immediately - our air con faulted but was repaired in about 20 minutes. Large staff of maintenance, gardeners, security, life guards, etc - all to the good of the hotel. Geoff is lovely as is Robert in the pool bar but all staff good just don't know enough names. Definitely recommend this hotel and will be, hopefully, booking soon for next year.

Room Tip: Sea rooms very pleasant but obviously more expensive. We preferred first floor, our choice, but all...

We stayed at the Kefalos as we were getting married there and we felt that this was a good choice due to good reviews.

Accommodation - Our room was nice and clean and secure. We stayed in a 1 bed appartment with our 3 yr old daughter staying on the sofa bed in the living room. We had a nice room with hairdryer (which was useful) and our bed was nice and comfortable but I would say an adult may have a problem staying on the sofa bed. They had excellent a/c units so never too hot at night!

Food - We stayed on a Half Board basis. I would say the breakfast was good and the snack/pool bar was excellent but I would not reccommend the buffet dinner or the bbq buffet. The seafood restaurant was great and we spent out wedding night meal there and it was lovely!

Staff - I found the reception staff very good and helpful, the restaurant (buffet) were a bit rude and could do to smile a bit especially on the BBQ buffet (eaten by the pool/entertainment area) where the waiter inb charge was very rude and argued with us cause we wanted to pay for our drinks there instead of being charged to our room.

Entertainment - It is of the cheesy holiday style but my daughter loved the mini disco and the staff were hard working and some acts were excellent.

Pool - The pools were clean and they provide inflatables for the kids. There are plenty of sun loungers but if you want one with shade or near the childrens pool get there early! However if you want some overlooking the beach you will fine loads.The main pools shallow end is taken up by activities several times a day and if you have kids the childrens pool is busy at these times.

Wedding - In this regard I couldn't reccomend enough - Elena the co-ordinator was amazing and the little touches really made the day. We spoke to several other couples who were married there and they all felt the same. So organised, smooth and stress free - a day I will always remember with joy!!!

Also note the beach is sand and pebbles so not great for sun bathing or sand castles but Coral bay is a short bus ride.

We would book again but not on half board as there is so many restaurants only 5-10 mins walk away and the harbour area is a short bus ride (at only 1 euro each)

A lovely hotel, which was better than expected. The room had a lovely sea view even though we were not directly looking at the sea. The sea view was a pleasant surprise. The room was so quiet at night time and very dark once the shutters were closed and enabled our daughter to sleep very well indeed. The pool was spotless and constantly checked for chlorine levels. The only slight downside was people constantly saving the sun beds by placing their towels on them and then not returning for the majority of the day. Management stated they would remove towels but they never did. We stayed half board and the food was lovely; always hot and lots of choice and lots to eat. Breakfast and dinner were well catered for and the outside bbq was beautiful by the beach watching the sunset. Our daughter has never wanted to go to any kids club before, but she actually asked to go to this one and thoroughly enjoyed herself. The staff were extremely helpful and would help with anything and they took time to notice and speak to our daughter. The rooms were cleaned daily and towels were new and fluffy. Would definitely make another trip to the Kefalos and sooner rather than later.

We stayed at the kefalos for the 2nd time the last 2 weeks of June and had an amazing time!

As we landed at around 1.30 pm we decided to book a taxi transfer to make the most of the afternoon, this was organised through Elena at the hotel rather than Thomson as it worked out better value.

We arrived to our room ready and what a room it was, just beautiful! We paid for a sea view and I would recommend this as the view is breathtaking at sunset and waking up to the sound of the waves is something our little boy just loves!!

We opted for bed & breakfast and it suited us very well, plenty to choose from and the staff work very hard to keep the tables cleared and the food topped up.

Our son didn't want to go to he kids club and prefers to stay around the pool with us but he did join in with the in house entertainment including the French bowls and water polo, Rico and his team are brilliant and lots of fun was had watching and taking part in some of the pool competitions! If you are there whilst the fire show is on then make sure you go and also the summer festival nite was fantastic! But if you prefer to lie in peace and soak up the sun o won't be hassled into joining in, they seem to have the balance just rite!

In the evenings a walk along the coastal path to the harbour at sunset is a must, the photos we have are stunning, allow plenty of time for photo stops, lots of lovely bars and resteraunts to choose from.

I am so glad we found the kefalos, we have stayed in paphos many times before and really love it, it's a bit tired up on the tomb of the kings road but that just adds to it for us, the restaurants that have been established for over 25 years will always give you a warm welcome and a great meal, it is a place we will return to over and over again I am sure!

I could go on and on about how great it is and recommend it to everyone, choose the kefalos and you will be a very happy holiday maker!

Room Tip: Choose a sea view but ultimately as long as you are there it doesn't really matter :)

I just returned from Paphos where I supported a gentleman with Apsergers syndrome to have a holiday
very well organized & a nice safe environment beach is very close the beds are comfortable but i never slept because of the heat & if put air con too noisy but this is nothing to do with hotel
staff very helpful
we stayed on bed and breakfast lots of choice..
ideal location for families or for people in a care situation if fully mobile.
entertainment provided for kids & parents we just watched singer one evening
but very 5 minutes away from tomb of king road where lots of entertainment options available as well as varied choices of eateries
we went to Alfie T s Karaoke bar 3 nights where the Gentleman i was supporting had a whale of time very friendly staff
Love cyprus trip is excellent
The Zoo was very disappointing

Just returned from this hotel with our children aged 8 and 2. Overall we had a good holiday. The apartment was basic but well equipped and very clean. Beds made and towels changed 6 out of 7 days. Our view was looking at a car port, we had a partial sea view and it was more private than some when you wanted to sit out so we were happy with it. We stayed bed and breakfast and it was okay. However the pool bar lunches are good with a lovely sea view to go along. The pool is great for swimmers but there is no real shallow end so our 8 year old couldn't put his feet down, hence his swimming has improved! But it is lovely and clean and not too busy. There are also pool towels each day if you want to use them, we did. Pool games and entertainment most days if you want to join in however they are not pushy. There are quieter areas on the beach front and grassed areas which look great if you want to sunbathe and relax, mostly adults with no kids, again lovely views. The beach itself is not so good for children building sandcastles etc.. It's shingle and seaweed. We did paddle with beach shoes and my son went in but its not as pleasant as Coral Bay Beach. We had a hire car and I think, for the beach alone, it was worth it. Our children enjoyed the mini disco and entertainment on the evening however we did go out up to the kings road and into Coral Bay. Poppadoms tandoori and Martelli for pizzas, are fab, thin as you like homemade pizzas, the kids loved watching the chef throwing the dough around in the air. The harbour is a nice area however it was so hot to walk around we had to go early morning. The hotel staff are mostly nice, a good kids club with parent and toddler sessions. All in all a good family holiday and good hotel. We would return.

we booked this hotel last minute and wasn't really expecting much as the deal we got was very cheap. however, when we got there we were pleasantly surprised!

the hotel staff were polite when needed, and the rooms were cleaned daily by the maid with new towels provided. we had an apartment room with a separate kitchen and living area to the bedroom and the kitchen facilities were more than enough for a self catering stay. there were lots of supermarkets nearby where food could be purchased easily. as well as this, there was plenty of restaurants to try out. recommendations are zorbas and zeus!

the hotel pool was very clean with a range of activities put on throughout the day by the staff. clean towels are available for use so no need to bring beach towels with you. the beach itself wasn't the best, but there are a range of other beaches nearby that were much nicer. sticking to the pool wasn't a problem though.

overall, would recommend this hotel to anyone. mainly family orientated but lots of couples and older people there too, so this hotel is suitable for anyone.

Room Tip: sea front rooms did look nice, so try to book one of those if possible. if not, all the rooms seemed...
