Reviewed July 7, 2014

Lovely pool, exceptionally clean and well kept. Sun loungers really comfortable. You do need to get up early to get a sunbed, but that wasn't a problem for us as we are early risers. The family that run the hotel make you feel so very welcome, always smiling and ready to chat and entertain. The rooms are basic but again clean and well kept. Breakfast is basic but they will happily cook you something for a small charge. There are a lot of frequent returners at the hotel. This did not cause us any issues - Nikolas and the rest of the family still made us welcome. If you go on holiday for a quiet time as a couple this is a lovely place to be just as much for the more outgoing! You are spoilt for choice regards food - so many lovely places to eat. Don't just go to the ones by the hotel - the walk along to the harbour is worth it for some fantastic meals. I can see why people return to the Zeus, it is excellent value for money.

My niece and I spent a week at the Zeus and it was a very pleasant stay. The hotel is set just off the main road so you are near all the bars and restaurants but away from any noise . The Zeus is very clean and the staff are all very helpful and friendly. We had a couple of snacks in the bar which were huge and very reasonable. We sampled the cocktails which were made by the lovely Nikos and they too were fab. Kefalos itself is a lovely place the sea is so clear you can see all the way to the bottom. Do be warned tho the beach is quite pebbly so take suitable shoes we had jellybeans which we wore both in and out of the sea. The resort is very reasonable and there are restaurants and snack bars to suit all budgets. We visited Nisyros and the volcano which is a fab trip and I would highly recommend just take plenty of money because there's notch to do after you have visited the volcano. We also visited Kos and Kefalos old town and we did the swim to the tiny island. We had a brilliant time and wouldn't hesitate to return to Kefalos or the Zeus.

we have just returned from eleven wonderful nights in this hotel, the rooms were very clean as was the whole hotel, we really enjoyed the bbq night excellent food and greek dancing with this lovely hard working family. the pool area was also really nice, all the local restaurants provided great food at very good prices, the only fault we could find was as mentioned before the shower, but we understand all the rooms are being revamped so this will be addresses. thank you to all the family who made our holiday a great one ( special thank to zach who took us to the village dr and brought us back!!! so kind) keep on doing what you do its great.

A good friendly hotel . Great location clean and well maintained, good size pool plenty of sun beds, but you have to get up early to get them. breakfast is taken poolside , and is very basic bread and jam. tea coffee as much as you like, there is a English café a few yards away TEA 42, this does a good full English. The beach is only 5 mins walk away. at the side of JIMS supermarket. Kefalos is great resort, quite and relaxing with many great resturants. the one we used the most was HEPOCROTES ON THE MAIN FRONT. GOOD FOOD AND GOOD PRICES. The bar at the hotel is run by Nicolas, a very good barman and very funny, MAKES ALL FEEL WELCOME. This is a very well run family hotel and well worth its 2 star rating. Well done to all at the ZEUS. PHIL& TERESA.(KING PHILIPO) from England.

Room Tip: side rooms are very quite.

Recently returned from two fabulous weeks staying at the Zeus Hotel, Kefalos, and we just wanted to say what a wonderful, warm and friendly hotel to stay at. We have read reviews from people whom seem to want 5* service, surroundings and lavish swimming pools but yet book a 3* star hotel, if thats what they want then book it. However, the welcome and service to us was worth more than a 5* in fact you couldn't but a rating on it because it is so perfect. Cleanliness, hospitality, family are lovely and can't do enough for you, and the surroundings are very natural. If you want a real taste of greece this is the place to go, not overpopulated but a great selection of fabulous restaurants and a few bars. Go on try it, you'll love it as you will love, Zach, Maria, Nikolas and Manos the great family who work so hard to make our holidays so special.

There is nothing 2 star about the Zeus hotel.
We went to surprise my parents who were staying there and had done a couple of times before. Not a lot to say really that hasn't been said before amazingly clean rooms, clean pool area friendly staff, great food cooked by Maria etc etc....
During our stay in Kefalos however we did a lot of walking and one thing really stood out..... that was that no other hotel appeared as busy as the Zeus and in our opinion that is for one reason only THE FAMILY that own it!!!!
Thank you all so very much for making our holiday perfect in every way.

Hotel very clean and comfortable. The beds are on the firm side but at least they are not lumpy! Some rooms have been upgraded however we had one that was not. It didnt bother us as you are not in it most of the time. The only gripe was the shower curtain which as usual just sticks to you and was a bit smelly. The upgraded rooms I believe have shower cubicles. We had a room on the top floor The whole family are very welcoming and Nicholas and Manolis keep the bar going at night with their banter. AC is 5 euros a day and the safety deposit box is 25 euros per fortnight plus 2 euros deposit for the key. Breakfast does consist of 2 pieces of bread, butter, jam, tea/coffee/orange juice. Plenty hanging space in the room but not much in the way of drawer space. All in all a very good value for money hotel and would recommend it.

Room Tip: A room away from the bar/reception if you are looking for a quiet room.
