Zeus Hotel
Ranked #2 of 13 Hotels in Kefalos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Friendly family run hotel in a very quiet resort in Kefalos on Kos. This hotel has a brilliant location near beaches, shops and beachside tavernas. Good bus service to Kos Town also or the popular Paradise beach for watersports. Disappointed no Free WiFi whereas the nearby tavernas offer this service. Breakfast NO NO......... 2 slices of bread and a sachet of jam.... Cannot be called B and B. but the snack bar will cook you any excellent breakfast (at a charge)....... Spotlessly clean and the staff are friendly.... Pool, bar and music in evenings.

Room Tip: All rooms as far as I could see where the same

.arrived at 1045pm on a rainy Thursday night. Found the room basic but clean not much wardrobe space but adequate .what makes the hotel is the warmth and friendliness of the staff ,who cant do enough for you .after dumping the cases went down to the bar and met Nicholas the barman, his memory is amazing he knows the name of every guest ,as the weather was disgusting he went round every body to see if they wanted anything from the take away down in the town. The breakfast is minimal but extras can be bought ie beans on toast ,eggs on toast, English breakfast for a few euros.theres something about the families friendliness,that seems to rub off on the rest of the guests.ive never made as many friends in just a week.the only draw back was the empitiness of the nearby bars and restruants but as this was last week in may I suppose its understandable.still the atmosphere in the bar more than made up for it .only had one English break fast and that was at the riverside café a couple of hundred yards down the road, run by an English couple who've been there 4yrs.for typical Greek food I would recommend Hubs restaurant just before the Riverside, on the last day we were leaving at 7pm the restaurant opened early for us at 5pm as arranged the night before
the only bad point was the mozzies,acording to Nicholas was due to the heavy rain on the Thursday night and the the hot weather that followed . all in all I cant praise the place enough

My wife and I have just returned from a week at the Zeus and everything which has said about the high standard of the hotel,we agree with.
Nothing is too much trouble for the family run Hotel and I endorse all the compliments that has been
given.
Only one thing is take precautions for the mossies as I had dozens of bites which I have had before in many years of travelling abroad.

Booked last minute 10 days BB 2 star for just over £530 for two including flights, transfers extra luggage etc, so wasn't really expecting too much, especially as we normally go 3 / 4 star. Arrived late on 15th, and was met with a smile and given directions to our room 316, just up a flight of stairs, where it hit us how the stairs, corridors and rooms were immaculate and freshly decorated. Breakfast minimal but fine for us, hubby had eggs on toast couple of times, but T42 English café just around the corner as well. Rooms cleaned very well, and towels changed every day, sheets very other, housekeeping better than a 3 star. Fridge and hairdryer in room and excellent AC 5 euros daily if needed. Worst part was small shower with hopeless curtain that kept sticking to us, but not really a problem, just a pain. Everyone very friendly and helpful, excellent well kept gardens, pool and pool bar. My pet hate is pool side toilets are usually horrible, but these were immaculate as all the outside areas. Lovely having breakfast outside looking at the mountains. Lunch snacks very good and inexpensive. Grandad grows the veg in the garden at the rear, and Grandma bakes the bread! It was a lovely family run hotel, and we enjoyed having drinks in the bar after dinner as many others. Kefalos is a lovely resort but was very quiet, there was more going on in the bar than in most bars in the village, This is mainly down to the "double act" of Nicolas (the more extrovert brother) and Manos (the quieter brother with a dryer sense of humour). They are both intelligent, nice young blokes who genuinely like meeting and chatting to guests. We learned a lot about Greece, its economy, history and politics from these two over a few drinks and really enjoyed talking to them, along with fellow holiday makers from different countries. Normally when staff are very friendly, I think its a way of getting you to spend money or leave a tip. However this was not the case and would not accept a tip! The mosquitos were a pain and I got a lot of bites, none from my room,(I had mozzie plug) mainly from the bar or outside. If I could suggest that a fan and electric mozzie exterminator in the bar would be a big improvement. We hired a car for 2 days and a dune buggy and visited lots of places and the weather was lovely. We met a lot of people who have been many times and can understand why they return. We would not come every year as there is a big world to explore, but will definitely visit again as we had such a brilliant time. We enjoyed eating in the lovely restaurants which were very good and reasonably priced, and did not miss All Inclusive at all. Overall we felt that the Zeus and the village of Kefalos was like being in Greece as it used to be many years ago, when it was cheap and Greeks were welcoming and friendly. I have no hesitation in recommending it. If you remember that you are paying for a 2 star hotel, and not expect 3 or 4 star accommodation, you will be pleasantly surprised as we were. We look forward to returning at some point, we missed the double act when we got home!

Room Tip: I believe they have up graded rooms but our TA didn't offer, worth asking about. If quieter room...

This year was the first time staying at this hotel in May and it was still great! We have been visiting since 2006.

The family can't do enough for you, they treat us as family and vice versa.

All the staff work to the absolute limit to provide you with everything you need/want for the perfect holiday.

They are currently upgrading 3 rooms to match the new family rooms, they are looking lovely!

Whether you have visited the hotel before or it's your first time, one things for sure you will have a lovely time and will not want to go home.

We have already booked for August and October.

Can't wait to spend more time with our special friends

Thank you so much
