We booked through the Kos tourist information site, and could only find 2 hotels listed on this for Kefalos, so was not sure what to expect.
In fact the hotel was new and beautiful, but lacking a bit in surrounding infrastructure, in as much as route to main road/beach was literally a small earth path, although there was vehicular access via a lane at the back.
Although not on the front, our room (and most others) have balcony views of sea, Agios Stephanos island and mountainous area behind. Above all it was a quiet situation, with no disturbance even though the World Cup was on when we were there.
I was concerned initially as it did not have air conditioning, and we had just been staying in Kos town in temperatures of 35 degrees C, where air conditioning was essential. However, this hotel is wonderfully designed so rooms (at least in the wing we were staying in) maximise the prevailing winds. As all the windows have screens fitted this allowed natural air conditioning day and night - and also kept out the mosquitos!
The room was spotlessly clean with a fridge provided. It was serviced daily. There was a large television in the reception which guests could watch.
As the hotel is family run, breakfast was an ongoing (7.30-10.30) family affair, with eggs, figs, fresh bread, sliced toast, cheese, ham, home-made jam etc. Everyone very pleasant and helpful - we would love to go back.
