Tthis is the second time we've stayed in Kefalos and it is the second time we've stayed at the Athinoula. Regarding what we look for in a hotel it ticks most of the boxed. Impeccably clean, staff who go above and beyond the call of duty, not particularly expensve, fantastic swimming pool and good location. The hotel has a bar...

It makes me wonder because I dont know what some people expect - if you want 5* then pay for it!! We returned from Kefalos yesterday having stayed a fortnight at the Athinoula on B&B basis and found it a great place to stay in a great location. I wouldnt say the owner Zak is unfriendly, his english isnt brilliant...

Basically a ten night stay here was 10 nights too long. Kefalos is beauitful, but if you do NOT want a freezing cold swimming pool, their greek children using the pool and shouting from one end to the other, playing football on the dust, the family watching greek films in day time blaring out whilst your sun bathing, no atmosphere...

Your reviewers from last year seem to want the earth. The inclusive breakfasts are basic - but what can be expected for the pittance that the hoteliers are left by...

When we arrived they didn't even have a record of our booking so we had to wait ages for the miserable old man to finally find it. The hotel was noisy so it was difficult to sleep. The aircon was expensively extra and more noisy. And as for the 'breakfast' - well, since when did B&B accommodation mean bread and...
