Kefalos is in a great location, right on the sea front and next to a paved promenade along which you can walk to the harbour in about 20mins (or run it as we did on several occasions!). The beach opposite is not ideal for swimming as it is quite weedy and rocky, although there is a stone jetty with ladders into the sea. Sandy beaches at Coral Bay and Corallia Bay are within a 20min bus ride (service runs every 15mins). There is modern shopping centre within a 10 minute walk. Our apartment was very nice, fairly basic but clean and quiet. Maid service was good, although on departure we did find a pair of dirty knickers in the top of the wardrobe together with the hood from a jacket so obviously that had not been checked after the last guests! We had a small balcony off the master bedroom from which you could see the sea and fall asleep listening to the waves(decided not to pay extra for sea view).
The complex itself is like a traditional Cypriot village, is clean and well maintained with nice landscaping. The pools were lovely, not too busy when we visited at Easter, and plenty of sun loungers either by the pool or on the adjacent lawned area, which also had volleyball and boules. We went half board and found the food plentiful and varied, usually we adults found no need to have lunch as we were so full after breakfast! I think the thing that struck us the most was the good quality service and attention to detail from the staff. The entertainers, Ramona and Ricco were excellent, very good attitude and professional yet personable approach. Our children (7 & 9) loved the kids club, and were upset when we went out for the day and they couldn't attend! In the evening they enjoyed the nightly kids disco whilst we indulged in happy hour cocktails, quiz & bingo. Some of the entertainment was a bit cheesy but perfect for a family holiday! We felt the children were quite safe running around just outside the bar area with their new found friends, they enjoyed the independence and we enjoyed some adult time. We felt there was a lovely atmosphere and commitment to ensuring we had a great stay, the restaurant staff, in particular, Dino, were very friendly and great with the kids. It is certainly one of the nicest places we have stayed and we would love to return next year. On previous visits to Cyprus we have self catered in a villa with family but this was far more relaxing.
