“Zeus Hotel Good but.........”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Had a one week stay at the Zeus, it is a good hotel, the rooms are clean, cleaning staff work really hard. Nice building pool and facilities. We would have to echo a comment in a previous comment, they really slipped up over a trip, we were booked on a trip, the travel agent moved the collection time, faxed the new details to the hotel and the hotel did not let us know, meaning we missed the trip. So if you are booked on a trip, make sure to scan the reception every day in the run up to your trip, (the hotel would take no responsibility for the cost of the missed excursion - Tomas Cook refunded however)
Breakfast was ok, nice fresh bread, but what you get is a result of the tour operators paying little to the hotels,
nice location, lots of nice restaurants

This is a great hotel and the family can't do enough for you.
the rooms are cleaned everyday. nikolas you are the best lol and manos you are good too .you made our holiday feel so much better with how friendly you all are and made us both laugh when we was in the bar. This hotel should be a 5 star and we will be coming back every year for happy days. for anybody considering a hotel and holiday in kefalos we cant stress enough how good your holiday and stay would be at this hotel. please don't be put off by any bad breakfast reviews you pay for what you get and you get more value for the money than you could ever imagine with the friendships you make with the family that run the hotel a big thankyou to you all see you september

When you book bed and breakfast you should expect breakfast, not stale bread (slices from small, hard baguette) and strawberry jam which was in little containers so cheap you could hardly get the silver paper off to get to the barely recognisable "strawberry" jam.
Coffee was instant coffee powder (didn't know that still existed) and tasted disgusting.
One morning's breakfast was enough, we went to the local English cafe up the road, which meant spending an extra 13 Euros every day.
Beds were too hard resulting in back problems.
Urgent tour information messages were left on reception and not pushed under doors, or mentioned to us, resulting in us, and several other guests missing a day trip. Although the money was refunded by the tour operator, we would have preferred to go on the trip. Unacceptable lack of communication.
It's clean, the staff are friendly and it's cheap, which only proves the old addage - you get what you pay for.
Never again.
Kefalos is beautiful with many good eating places. Recommend Antonio's where we had an excellent 2 course meal with wine and superb service for under 40 euros.
There are people who go back year after year - we met several - but it's not for us. We expect more for our money.

Just had our 2nd holiday at this hotel (May 2013) having been previously in Sept 2010. Had a fab time, the family just cant do enough for you and they are always friendly and very welcoming. Ok, if you expect a fry up every morning then you will be disappointed with breakfast but we found bread and jam with a cup of coffee was enough to keep us going til lunchtime. There's a couple of english cafe's nearby if you need more.
Kefalos is a quiet resort, the beach is ok but there are better beaches (Paradise Beach and Sunny Beach) nearby which can be reached by the local bus. There are plenty of taverna's within walking distance, some overlooking the beach, some along the road. We had really nice meals at Hippocrates and the Aussie BBQ but in fairness we weren't disappointed with any of the restaurants. You can get a meal for two with wine and starters for 20 -30 euro's. We usually went back to the hotel bar after our meal where you are assured of an entertaining evening with Manos & Nikolas.
Car hire is cheap (22 euro's per day) and available very close to the hotel and should be considered before paying a fortune for tour company trips. Kos Town is worth a day out and we had a really nice evening at the taverna overlooking "Sunset Beach" but car hire is essential for this.
All in all, a little gem and thank you to all the family for making our holiday so special. We'll be back!!

Room Tip: Top floor rooms (3rd floor) looking towards Kefalos village seem pretty quiet

My wife and I first visited the Zeus Hotel in 2003. We went on the recommendation of friends who never went back. The welcome we received from Maria, Zac, grandad Nic and his wife Sonia was the best we had been given in a long time. Manolis, Nic and sister Sonia were all in the process of growing into the fabulous young people they are today. We spent seven weeks overall this summer in the Zeus and will be going back in 2013. The friendships we have developed over the years is written in the other guest reviews, The hotel is always spotless, and the rooms are cleaned everyday. We cannot wait for next year to come quick enough to go back and see all the family again, that is what they are to us [family] it is like going home.

Our first time in Kos, we chose the zeus hotel because of all the good reviews it had received. AND we wasn't disappointed. Zac, Maria, Manos, Nikalos and Sonia cannot do enough to ensure you have a fantastic holiday. Rooms may be basic [all you do is wash, change and sleep in them] but they are spotlessly clean, our room had been cleaned for our arrival at 1.30am and it was cleaned again the same afternoon. Likewise we kept our room on untill 8pm on the day of our departure yet our room was still cleaned that afternoon. The breakfast may be basic but i dont book a holiday dependant on the quality of the breakfast alone. Our room was only two doors away from the bar but they have two doors seperating the bar area from the guest rooms and we didn't have any problems with noise. The quiz night is excellent, good food, good fun and we came second [thanks to deb and steve]! Overall we had a fantastic time, don't take any notice of the negative reports [some people want something for nothing and have no sense of humour]. We have already booked to go back next september.
