Reviewed 7 October 2013

We found the hotel great, rooms cleaned and towels changed everyday. The hotel is run by a lovely family who couldn't do enough to make our stay a happy one. Everyone very friendly and we heard no noise when were in our room. Only downside for us were the beds - rather low & mattresses need renewing, but everything else was great. Pool extremely clean & food at snack bar wonderful. A big thank you to Maria, Zach, Manolis, Nikolas and Sonia for a great holiday. Can't wait to see you all again next year. From Vanna kai Timos

We have just returned from a week's stay at Zeus and found the hotel to be basic but clean and comfortable. The rooms were cleaned and the towels changed daily; the pool and communal areas also appeared spotlessly clean. There is no kettle, cups or glasses in the hotel room, luckily I had gone prepared with my travel kettle, there is a however a small fridge which was useful. There was an additional charge for wi-fi, air conditioning and to keep the room later. We decided to pay the 20 euros to keep our room until we left.

The breakfast is just literally bread, jam, tea, coffee and orange juice; so don't expect too much. There was however an extensive menu of other options at extra cost; such as beans on toast for 2.50 euros. So it is quite cheap. We only paid £88 for the week for the accommodation, so we weren't expecting the breakfast to be amazing.

As noted in other reviews the doors do slam but I think this often due to if there is a breeze and the balcony doors are open it tends to slam shut the doors. I know I slammed our door on a couple of occasions without meaning too.

Kefalos is a quiet resort, but there is a fantastic selection of bars and restaurants to choose from. The hotel is located at the top end of the resort so it takes about 20-25 to walk to the main area where the restaurants are, we enjoyed the walk backwards and forwards giving us chance to walk off all that lovely Greek food. The beach is only a short walk away, about 5 minutes; the beach is lovely...shallow water and sandy perfect for swimming and bathing.

My husband and I have just returned from a weeks holiday in Kefalos, staying at the 2 star Zeus Hotel. I can tell you now, if you have any doubts - stop them right now as this was one of the best small hotels we have ever stayed in. We normally do 4/5 stars, but as money was tight this year we decided to go for a cheaper option. Zeus exceeded our expectations by far. The hotel was so clean, every day and all day the cleaners were cleaning all areas of the hotel. Our room got cleaned every day (even the last day when we had a late check out!). Breakfast was basic but the staff were so very friendly, they could not do enough for you. My husband and I are now on a campaign to keep the small hotels and taverna's in business. As with the all inclusive market taking over most of the bookings these days, the smaller hotels can not compete and I don't know about you but Greece would not be Greece without the lots of lovely small businesses, small apartments and taverna's. It didn't work out any more expensive than AI, as we were able to eat out well for 30 euros including wine. Well done Zeus!!

We were last at hotel zeus 14 years ago when we holidayed with our 2 boys...now all grown up we returned with friends. Its always an unknown commodity returning to somewhere you've had a blast at years before. Were we dissapointed? Nope not a bit. Although we can see that the resort of Kefalos is a lot quieter which seemed a bit of a shame, it was still a lovely place with the friendliest people. The hotel is a clean well maintained place with nothing too much trouble for anyone involved. Nic was a scream with a comment for everything. The only dissapointment was there was no bbq or quiz which we had all set our minds to, but hey...we survived. Paradise beach a 1.60 euro trip was brilliant with a lovely sandy beach and watersports that my friend and I had a fantastic time on....we are both grandma's and I think the guys thought we were nuts but admired us for being good sports. Nissyros is an absolute must,although we didn't get there this time...but the memory still stays from our last visit. Car hire is inexpensive with driving on the island a lot easier than other islands.....thats for sure!

Thanks to all the peeps at the hotel zeus ...from Michael,Carol,John and Chris...we had a ball..

Just back from a great holiday in Keflos , this is our 4th year on the trot. The hotel is brilliant and was very very friendly again. Can't wait to go back next year. The family are great from the start to the finish of your holiday and nothing is too much trouble. Even if it is a cup of tea at 1am in the morning. The hotel is so relaxing so there is no wounded people go back year after year , we now have that bug

We have just returned from staying at this hotel for 2 weeks. We checked in around midnight ahead of a group of people who had obviously stayed there 2-3 times already this year, our key was slid across the counter and was told it was on the 1st floor, no directions or anything. The big family greek welcome was saved for the returning guests who we found out stayed most of the the day around the pool and then spent the evening and early hours of the morning drinking at the bar, spending money and keeping all the other guests awake. This went on every night till 4-5 am then the doors would slam. We are not the stay at the pool type, we go abroad to see the place and explore. We did enjoy a drink at the bar ocassionally but the local bars suited us more. The rooms were typically greek and having a fridge was great, clean towels every day and bedding every other day. We did ask about the noise level from the bar but it fell on deaf ears. Kefalos is a beautifull resort and we will return but sadly to a different hotel

Room Tip: Do not accept a room over the bar, it was worse than ours and we had 301

Stayed here at least 5 times now! Go to Kefalos for a windsurfing holiday most years if we can afford it. Basic rooms, but always clean. Run by a lovely family. For the price it's perfect, don't expect a wonderful breakfast, bread and jam, but I did not mind that. Rooms now have fridges! Supermarket is close, so I used to but yoghurts. If you like a nice cup of tea, bring your own tea bags.
I will not hesitate to go back, we always have a lovely time here!
