Where do I start! Stayed in Kefalos with family and a friend of my sisters came with us, however as she booked late she couldn't stay at the same Hotel, this is how we found this place.
Every night we walked her back to her Apartment and ended up in the bar for a few drinks, the family that own it are lovely, it really is like living in someone else's house!
On the Wednesday they hold a Barbeque night, originally we were going to attend the one at our Hotel ( 10 Euro's each) however Yiannis Apartments charge 5 Euro's, we were going to book in for it then realised we wouldn't be back in time as we were going on an excursion, no problem they said, we will keep you some, turn up when you are ready, we did and it was a feast, I can eat trust me, I will never starve! The plates of food kept coming until the table was full, the food was exceptional, the owners daughter came out half way through and asked if we wanted more food, we simply had to decline as the volumes were so copious, it wasn't a case of quantity over quality though it was all superb. Seven people food and drink and not even 55 Euro's, wow that's good.
We spent most nights here after eating out and they were genuinely lovely people, the one night the mom asked where we were staying then offered to take us back to our Hotel in their car to save us walking!
On our last night at our Hotel we asked the owners if they could cook a little earlier so we could eat before catching our flight, they would but clearly didn't want to, to save rushing we asked the family at Yianis - no problem at all - should have asked them first - absolutely nothing was too much problem, food again was super, the owners came over at the end of the night to thank us all personally for visiting - this was proper family based hospitality.
My sister's friend found nothing to criticize over her accommodation,( she can be a little critical at times) , we had a good look around, it is basic accommodation, it is very clean though, this is not the place you would visit for luxury but as a nice place, friendly owners and exceptional service it ticks all the boxes for me.
Pool is small I would add.
The home made Honey which I brought home is divine, do try some!
