I have chosen this hotel based on the reviews from Trip Advisor so I knew the hotel will be very basic and it was - it could do with some TLC however it was enough for me and my friends as we spent most of our time outside exploring.
It had amazing views of the Kamari Bay - which was worthing climbing up every day from the beach, as the hotel is on top of the hill. You can see both sides of the island from the hotel - the north side is bit windy and the wind hits you once you open the door when leaving the hotel.
The food was lovely - I was prepared to have really small dinner portions (after reading the reviews) however once we have eaten all 3 courses, we were all full up. There was a choice of Greek food and English food,as most of the guests were English.
The owners were really lovely people and would help with anything - especially Janet - she made us feel really welcome and came to say goodbye when we were leaving.
The one thing the hotel could do with would be a shower curtain as there isn't one which caused the bathroom to flood.
Kefalos overall was very quiet town - I am not sure if it was down to the end of the season but there were rarely any people in the bars - it seem like the main nightlife was down at the Kamari Bay which was around 40 minutes walk for us.
From all the atractions I would recommend Greek Night in Zia which was amazing and definately worth the money as you get food all night and free wine in an amazing scenery and fantastic entertainment, We have also gone on the ferry trip to Nysiros which was beautiful - mind you the price only included the ferry trip and back but we rented a car to see the volcano and Emporios village, and an absolute must is the village of Mandraki - it is a very traditional, white house with narrow streets Greek village - you could get lost in those streets...it was beautiful! We have also climbed the monastery however it was closed but the views from the top of monastery were breathtaking. I definately recommend this island.
We have also rented some scooters and went to see Asklepieion which was quite interesting and you get an amazing view of Turkey, Kos town which I personally was a bit disappointed with and we have also went to Tigaki beach, which was beautiful however very windy (whereas Kefalos beach waters are calm and better for swimming).
If you want some fun and a good day out, Lido Waterpark is a must - we had a brilliant time there and the slides were quite cool.
Overall Kos is a really nice a peacefull island - if someone is looking for a great nightlife, Kefalos is NOT the place to go but it has got amazing views and one can really realx in that place. Again, many thanks to Janet and her family for her fantastic hospitality.
