“Great holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

Me and my boyfriend arrived at Kefalos quite late into the evening. Check in was quick and easy and our room was spacious and very well equipped for us as we we S/C. Pool and grounds lovely. We chose the beach that sits infront of the hotel most days as the breeze is better. Ignore what they say about the water, there are steps into the sea into sand and it's quite shallow all the way around except for some of the rocks. Hotel's Italian restaurant served lovely good- huge portions. Extremely good value for money as was the pool bar.
The hotel itself isn't right in the centre, there are enough bars and restaurants around if you wanted to stay local. The beaches around aren't overly great although there are plenty, most pebbly and sea full of rocks.
All in all Kefalos has been a great place to stay whilst visiting Paphos.

Just got back from our 10 days in Paphos, which included our wedding and our families staying at the kefalos for the first time. We stayed seven nights in a superior room and then stayed in another hotel for the remaining 4 nights once our families went home.

The Kefalos is a truly wonderful place for all ages. It is not flash, but is beautiful and exceptionally well maintained. The staff are amazing. We have been twice before to organise our wedding and the staff remember you and greet you as friends. Geoff, Paris and Elena deserve special mention, warm and professional in every respect. All staff are exceptional from the Entertainment crew to the chamber maids.

Our wedding was certainly the best day of my life, in conjunction with the florist and the anglican church of Paphos our Kefalos large gazebo location looked unbelievably perfect, and everything went so smoothly. The new bar location they have built next to the gazebo also adds a touch of class.

My wife and I are so happy we chose the Kefalos for our wedding and can't emphasise enough how perfect our day was. For any holiday for any age you will only have a wonderful time and go home with special memories.

When booking if you can afford a little extra then book a seaview room and have a drink on your balcony every night as the sun goes down. If Carlsberg did sunsets.......

Thank you to all at the Kefalos, you made our dreams come true.

Mr and Mrs Hammond

When we got out of taxi it was a feeling of.....aahhhh.......we're home!!
Check in ,as usual,slick and painless and it was off to our Superior room on back of golf buggy.
Superior room was beautifully furnished in lovely colours and every little detail was perfect!
Dressing gown and slippers, toiletries, fruit basket and beautiful bottle of wine and a bottle of water already chilled in fridge!!
Amazing sea view, which is a must if you ask me.
Met up with Elena ( events manager) whilst in for our lunch at the taverna, and how she remembers everyone's name is a talent!!
be prepared on HUGE portions of gorgeous food and reasonably priced.
Had a wee hiccup when air con played up during night but we were swiftly moved to another room overnight while engineers repaired it the next morning.
Once again, another fantastic holiday and if i could give 10 stars then I would!!
See you next year guys!!!

Room Tip: Sea view a must!! Sunsets are stunning!!

I stayed here for 11 nights at the end of June on a h/b basis. We arrived quite late and check in was extremely quick and efficient, we were given a meal voucher for our missed meal that day. We were taken by golf buggy to our room and were told where the restaurant was on the way. The room was extremely spacious for 2, however it did look alittle dated, and would benefit from an update, although very clean. The pool area and surrounding gardens were excellent. There is a coastal walkway which will take you to Paphos harbour, the restaurant was very well managed and the food very good with a different choice each evening. All the staff were extremely polite and helpful and I would not hesitate in booking to go back here again. A very good holiday made all the better by the fantastic weather we had!!

Stayed for 1 week at this resort 22nd June till 29th June and must say i was very pleased with the location, the hotel, the food and all the activities that were available. The holiday was a last minute booking and was excellent value. I would not hesitate in recommending this resort.

Well done Thomson, another excellent holiday!!!

Room Tip: Rooms around the pool can be a bit noisy, so if you prefer it a bit quieter then best ask for a room...

Stayed here from the 25th June for a week half board as a family of 5.
Booked last min the day before with Thompson so was a surprise where we was going.

Arrived very late at hotel. Check in was super fast and we had 2 rooms together like we requested.
We was given a meal voucher for the last day so we could still have dinner.
There was a golf buggy to take you to your room.

Room.
Myself and my partner had a ground floor studio. Was massive. Very clean. Comfy beds, very well equipped kitchen, tv (remote is free just needed to pay a deposit you get back €10)
Only downside was no view on the balcony but can't be helped.
Mum and dad had a 1 bedroom apartment upstairs and again their room was fantastic huge very clean.

The hotel.
Lobby is lovely to sit in now and again as very cool with air con !
Free wifi in lobby.
You can pay for pool wifi but it's quite expensive and there's no need for it in this beautiful place.

Pool area
Pools lovely (warm!!!) lots of sun beds. You are provided towels which is lovely.
There is lots of sun beds on the grass area to so lots of places to sit.
There is a pool bar and snack bar. We had lunch in here a few times was good food. Prices were around €7/8 for a burger and chips.
Waiter service around the pool which is lovely.

Beach.
It's a great shame that there is no real beach here. The sea is very rocky so you can't walk in but there is a little jetty with stairs so you can get in the sea. It's quite choppy but worth having a dip.
There is a stunning beach called coral bay which you need to get a bus to. It's around 15 min bus ride away. Only cost €1.50 a ticket.
At the beach it's €7.50 for 2 sun beds and a brolly for the day. There's a little shop but not much so take plenty of supplies.

Food.
The food here was amazing. Breakky was fry up cereal fruit yoghurt bread toast pancakes coffee juice anything you can imagine.

Dinner was fab. Different theme every night. The guy who seats you is lovely can't remember his name though.
The waiters and waitresses work really hard here and deserve a mention. Always something to eat for every one it's lovely.
Tuesday was BBQ night outside by the sea. That was amazing such a nice thing to sit by the sea and have your dinner !!

There's a shop on site which is pretty much the same price as the ones up the road.
We had rolls and pittas for lunch most days. They sell lots in here and is quite reasonable.
Around a 5 min walk is the high street which has loads of reasturant shops McDonald's KFC etc.
Also this is where you catch the bus. All tickets are 1.50 anywhere on the line.
I would go to the harbour as there's loads of shops there and it's a lovely place.

We went to visit the tombs of the kings which was amazing.
Walk up to the main road turn left walk about 10 mins and it's just past KFC on the left.
It's only €2.50 entry and is really good.
Little tip when you are finished don't exit the main entrance go to the far back on the left there is a turnstile which leads you to our hotel !! 2 min walk !

There is entertainment every night I can't comment as it's not our thing. Sounded alright.
Up in reception at the back there's a smoking area which is like a outside inside conservatory with lovely chairs where we sat in the evenings you can get wifi in here to.

The entertainment team are fantastic. Everyday there is water aerobics in the morning, a pool game at 12 another few activities in the afternoon like water polo water volleyball football archery etc.
They don't stop !! Bobby is fab and works really hard to make sure people are having a great time.

If you go upstairs in reception there is a little room with loads of books in you can use while your there.

Cyprus is a beautiful country and I must say this is the best hotel I've ever been to it's just fantastic

Had a fantastic time and would deffo think about coming back in the future.

Thanks kelalos for an amazing holiday.
