Kontessa Apartments
Ranked #48 of 159 Speciality Lodging in Kos
Reviewed 15 June 2014

My husband and I have just returned following a week at Kontessa apartments. The apartments are conviniently situated a stones throw from the beach and restaurants in the relaxing resort of Kafalos. Thanks to Joanna the apartments are very clean and spacious. The pool area is well maintained and there are plenty of sun beds, there is no need to put your towels down at the crack of dawn. Carly who manages the pool snackbar will do whatever she can help you. We most certainly will be revisiting this traditionally Greek resort for its excellent hospitality and these special apartments.

I've decided to stay at Kontessa Apartments after seeing photos of this place. As I only planned to spent there my first 3 nights in Kos Island, I wanted a beautiful surrounding rather than modern facilities or a great location. To my suprise the place I had chosen appeared to be not only picturesque, but very comfortable too.
To begin with the owner - Mrs Kontessa - makes everyone feel welcome. She would remember your name, great you each time with a broad smile and give you self made cookies. But have in mind, that she and other staff members are not always there. They come in the morning and disappear in the afternoon.
This accomodation is perfectly located, only a 2 minutes walk to the beach and main promenade with tavernas and shops. At the same time it gives you perfcet privacy, when staying at the swimming pool you're not being observed by everyone passing by, what happens in other Kefalos hotels.
My room was spacious and extremely clean, with everythig one could need when prepearing meals. The bathroom needs to be up-to-dated, but I qiuckly got used to its a little old-fashioned look.
The pool is great, big and clean. A sunbed always there waiting for you. Beautiful garden, flowers and well-maintained plants all around the building.
Last but not the least is the company. There's quiet, friendly and extremely polite group of regulars, so noone disturbs you at night.
Perfect place to relax and see this part of the island. Though booking in advance advisable.

Room Tip: Gruond floor rooms have small private terrace and you get from there directly to the swimming pool a...

You may have read a review that I wrote in June saying how super this accommodation is - we had such a great time that we longed to come back! It was as if we'd never left - all the people we'd met before welcomed us like old friends and of course, Caryl has become part of our Kefalos family! The lovely Vania (Bulgarian cleaning lady) came to see us every day to make sure all was well!
We had a fabulous 2 weeks and as always can recommend these apartments. Until next time......

Fantastic location close to beach, bars and shops. Good size pool and plenty of sunbeds. Pool bar ran by Caryl who makes great cuppa tea and rustles up great breakfast and mmmm eggy bread. Found stairs behind pool that went down to supermarket to get paper and bread in morning. Bulgarian cleaner cannot rem her name extremely pleasant and we certainly had sleep in. Gardens lovely and well maintained. Hotel accommodated all our requests which very much appreciated when you have disabled traveller.

Room Tip: we loved the ground floor as could walk out straight to pool..

we have returned from our sixth visit to kontessa. it is a wonderful place to stay. we are always made so very welcome by everyone. caryl who runs the bar is so friendly and accommodating. she works as hard as she can according to customer needs and requirements. if it is busy then you may have a short wait for your lunch or breakfast but as she works alone she does an amazing job to keep the wait as short as possible. the apartments are always immaculately clean and tidy as are the surrounding garden areas. we WILL be back its like our second home now. thanks caryl and Joanna !!!!!!!!!!!

Excellent location in the heart of the village, close to the seafront and bars, cafes, restaurants and supermarket but still quiet. First floor rooms' balconies have seaview, ground floor access the poolside area. Rear terrace of apartment faces countryside. Large pool (20m) with plenty of sunloungers.
Plenty of room in the large clean apartment which is simply furnished. Basically equipped kitchen with dining table. Cleaned most days. Kefalos is a quiet resort very suitable for older visitors who do not want noisy night clubs / bars. Great beaches.
Best restaurant is Sebastians run by a wonderful friendly family. Great choice of food, huge portions and very reasonably priced. Start the day with their huge breakfast for €6.50!

As is common, there are additional charges for air conditioning - € 6 per night, room safe - € 10 per week
late checkout - € 20

Cash only - no credit cards.

Unless you know beforehand, your allocated apartment is listed on a blackboard by the entrance steps.

Room Tip: First floor rooms' balconies have seaview, ground floor access the poolside area.

Just returned from these basic but absolutely spotless apartments surrounded by beautifully kept gardens and chilled out pool area. There for one week only and loved it. Location ideal. Nice n quiet however,just a short stroll to lovely choice of restaraunts and friendly bars. Beach quite pebbly but sea n views gorgeous.
Would hope to return to these lovely apartments in the very near future. Thanks to the lovely staff (especially the Bulgarian domestic) for making our stay in room 5 a pleasant one. Keep up the good work xxx
