Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Hotel Reviews

Lyn Tofari had a holiday at Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Hotel in February 2006
We visited Kefalos Beach during half term.

Ok, the rooms weren\'t 5* but they had everything needed, were clean, in good repair and condition. The a/c heating units were more than efficient. Nothing shabby about the rooms.

As breakfast was buffet style there was a lot of choice and good value, the evening meal themed every night.

The location couldn\'t be faulted.

All the staff were friendly and helpful (I thought one waitress would be joining us for meals when she discovered my husband was a \'native\'.

Claire visited the Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Hotel, Paphos, Cyprus in December 2005
We stayed at the Keflos Beach by accident. The apartments we were staying in were being renovated so we got moved to the Keflos (their sister). All I can say is what a fantastic move.

The rooms along with all the communal areas were very clean. aids came in every day.

Although we were self catering we did have breakfast there which was great. Full english or continental, it was a buffet so you could have as much as you wanted and there was loads to choose from, meats, fruit allsorts! It cost

sheila & david johnson visited the Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Hotel, Paphos, Cyprus in October 2005
Stayed at the Kefalos beach village, it was a last minute deal and we were pleasantly surprised when we got to the hotel.

It was great, we had a ground floor studio apartment even though we were on half board, it meant we could have the best of both - meals in the fantastic restaurant and also the use of fridge for making coffee etc.

The staff were excellent, very friendly and the choice of meals good. everything was really clean, the maids did a great job. for october the weather was really nice and we just lazed about on the sunbeds provided - plenty of these with umberellas, we chose to be on the grassy area on the beach.

We will definitely go back to this hotel again, probably for longer next time ...
as we are now retired and have more time.

Best wishes to all at Kefalos beach and keep up the high standard.

Jessica had a holiday at Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Hotel, Paphos in September 2005
We have just arrived back this Monday 10th sept 05 all Ican say is WOW what a fantastic holiday we had!

The complex was absolutely fantastic we didn\'t want to come home!

There were four of us that went(my mum, her partner, my partner and myself..of course!) We stayed in a one bedroomed apartment, to be honest we were quite worried that the apartment would be over crowded with the four of us, but when we arrived we were shocked as to how spacious the room actually was!

The bedroom was light an airy with twin beds, a dressing table and wardrobes. The bathroom was LARGE and most importantly CLEAN!! the kitchen/sittingroom or bedroom(as we were on the sofa bed(which was extremly comfortable) was well equipt and large!

The hotel itself was a definate plus to the holiday overall! It was located ...
right on the beach with water sport facilites(although I had a bad experience with the guys who ran that... but that was a personal thing nothing to do with the hotel, just take care if you are young female and on your own... however they were friendly).

The pool area was amzingly clean and there we so so many sun beds!!! so you dont have to worry about getting to the pool early in the moring to get a decent spot by the pool! The pool bar served food all day and the drinks are served until 1am!

There was plenty of entertainment going on around the pool all day by the animation team ..which was anything from water areobics to the cocktail game(it\'s not how it sounds hehe), the team tried to involve everyone but if you weren\'t interested they didn\'t try to force or hassle you!

The complex had its own restaurant as well.. but I can\'t comment on that as we didn\'t eat in it,there were far too many restaurants to choose from the area! Although we spoke to a few people who had eaten there and they had up graded to halfboard as the food was that good!

My favourite part of the complex was the bar next to the reception area. Pambos the main barman was utterly fantastic! we sat at the bar a few nights..and had a few(sometimes too many) drinks, and chatted away to him! Ithink he is already mentioned on this site actually..and took the pleasure of telling him that, but he already knew! He told us stories and kept us entertained all night long! He is such a lovely genuine person!(I hope he reads this!) if anyone ever meets him...don\'t forget to ask him how his B&Q lawn is doing? and also how his wife and little boy are!!!

This complex if definitely worth a long long stay! I didn\'t want to return to England!

Lynn Irving visited the Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Hotel, Paphos, Cyprus in September 2005
Kefalos Beach was everything the brochure said it would be.

The studios were extremely clean and spacious and the one bedroom apartment was very big! The maid service can only be described as excellent. The restaurant was very good value and the staff there were very friendly.

My partner and I got married in Cyprus and were let down by our wedding restaurant at the last minute. My father in law spoke to the Kefalos Manager who organised a table in the restaruant (for 30 people!)at very short notice. The manager also opened the bar early for the wedding party and could not have been more helpful.

The pool area was beautiful and the pool bar served delicious snacks and lunches.

All in all, an excellent choice of accommodation.

Clements stayed at Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Hotel, Paphos in August 2005
Found this hotel from these reviews and we find it difficult to fault this hotel.

There were only two small issues which we had. The first concerned the policy of the hotel\'s maids to leave apt patio doors open (although the wooden doors behind them were usually secured). The general manager said that in Paphos and Cyprus generally there was little crime and not to worry! He found it difficult to see that knowing we had carefully locked the patio door before leaving the apt on the first full day that on return and finding it open we feared that we had been burgled!

The second issue concerned the air-conditioning unit in the room which spewed a fine oily deposit on the white wall underneath! The hotel painted over the mess once (without prompting) but it returned the next day and ...
they did not find a permanent solution. Not sure whether the problem was with all their units or just ours but they should have sorted the problem better. The unit worked well otherwise.

If you book through JMC ensure you delete need for airline meals and save 10UKP/person. You will get offered the meals anyway and pay nothing!

The Noble Family stayed at Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Hotel, Paphos, Cyprus in August 2005
Just arrived back from a fantastic two week holiday. We chose this hotel as my sister who was getting married in Cyprus was staying here.

We did book independently from them and must say got a fantastic deal. The hotel was lovely and clean and the staff really friendly and helpful.

We stayed in a one bed apartment which was more than big enough for 3 people and although we didn\'t make use of the kitchen area it was well equipped. We found the resturant food to be really good with a great amount of choice to suit most tastes.

In fact my sister and her family who went Self Catering did join us on for a meal on a number of occasions and couldn\'t believe the standard of food for the price they paid for ...
it. The pool area did get a bit crowded at times but we soon learnt that you have to follow the crowd and get down early to reserve a sunbed.

The beach area was not crowded and finding a sunbed there was not a problem. The beach was OK, but I would not recommend letting a child swim in the sea as the bottom is rocky and there is quite a strong current.

Overall we had a fantastic stay there and if we hadn\'t already planned our holiday then we would be booking to go again next year, however we shall definitely choose to go back in the near future.

zoe maiden stayed at Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Hotel in August 2005
We stayed at the Kefalos for 2 weeks with our son who was 21 months old at the time and got to say we thought it was a great hotel.

Very clean pool. Fantastic even though it could get a little crowded and you do have to careful of the bridge as it can get quite slippy.

We had a ground floor apartment which was perfect for us. Restaurants just a short walk away only negative point was that the hotel was set back off the main road and wasn\'t well lit but not a problem as long as you were careful.

Didn\'t really stay in hotel at night so can\'t comment on evening entertainment food was ok we upgraded to bed and breakfast when we arrived and this worked out ok for us with a small child waitreses very helpful and ...
took a shine to our son.

Walk to harbour a bit far for young children but main road in front of hotel has everything you need resturants and pubs and shops. Food at San Marinos lovely and owner Tony very pleasant indeed. He remembered us from previous holiday and looks after his customers very well.

All in all a fantastic holiday going to Paphos again in 2007 but staying closer to harbour side as not so far for kids to walk.

The best beaches are at Coral Bay. You can get a bus from main road straight there but get off at very last stop in the car park as this is best part of beach.

Dewhurst stayed at Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Hotel in July 2005
Just got back on Saturday and we loved it. The rooms were lovely and clean, we couldn\'t believe it when we realised it was right on the beach - although the beach was a bit rocky and for a few of the days the red flag was up and you couldn\'t go in the sea.

All along the grass area were swings/see-saws and climbing toys for the kids.

The pool was a good size but have to say it was very deep. Even in the shallow end neither of mine could touch the bottom. There is also an indoor pool which was freezing but the kids loved that!

There were plenty of sunbeds around the pool and the grass area, when we first arrived it was pretty quiet and easy to get beds, but I have to say the last few days a ...
few weddings were on and it was quite manic around the pool in the day.

The hotel food was not too bad, the downside to it was there wasn\'t always a childrens selection and if there was it was actually one item i.e. fish fingers or chicken nuggets (not both). The food in the restaurant wasn\'t bad but we did find the drinks and snacks at the hotel quite expensive.

There were 4 weddings while we were there - and what a lovely place for a wedding, with the little chapel and the beach as a backdrop for photos.

The only complaint I had was the night time entertainment and layout - it was in the poolside bar and really there was no entertainment.

However, all in all it was one of the best places we have visted and I am pretty certain we\'ll go back.

Wendy Michael had a holiday at Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Hotel in July 2005
On first arriving we were very impressed with the layout and how pretty the apartments were with the surrounding plants and flowers.

The reception area was was lovely but some of the staff need to smile a bit more. Maybe because we arrived in a very busy week but the staff seemed to be quite stressed.

We chose this hotel because of it\'s location for the large party we were in. We were part of a 30 strong wedding party, us being the bride and groom. We had our blessing in the lovely chapel in the the resort and it was fantastic. The hotel was ideal for families with children young and old so it was a good choice for the purpose of our visit.

Even though we were self catering, most of our wedding guests were half board so we ...
joined them several times for breakfast and evening meals. The breakfast was good and plenty of choice. The evening meals were great in the first week , then they get a bit repetitive and the quality went down a bit. As the wedding couple we were provided with a candlelight dinner for two which was fabulous and the service was very attentive.

My biggest complaint would be the availability of sun beds. We were fed up with certain guests reserving beds from 6am. We couldn\'t even get beds on the grassy area at the far end of the resort. Many of our party complained but the staff didn\'t seen interested and done nothing about it.

Carol Ochiltree had a holiday at Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Hotel in June 2005
We (me and my son and a friend and her son) upgraded to this Hotel after spending one night in The Land of the Kings Apartments which were very poor.

What a contrast the Keaflos Beach Village was! The rooms were clean, bright and spacious. We had upgraded to Bed & Breakfast, the food was excellent with a wide buffet-style choice of foods.

The Hotel is set back from the main part of Paphos and only a 5 minute walk to the bars/restaurants and shops. The Hotel staff were very friendly, maids cleaned the rooms every day, towels changed twice and beds changed mid week. The pool areas were excellent for our children (boys aged 8 and 9)although the shallow pool was quite deep if you are a non swimmer. We didn\'t go to any of ...
the entertainment evenings.

We would definitely go back to the Kefalos Beach Village, it was lovely.

Zara Clayton stayed at Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Hotel, Paphos, Cyprus in June 2005
I was on this holiday with my Mum.We were very impressed when we were dropped off at the beach village it looked much nicer than the other accomodation we had seen from the coach.It looks like a posh golf club. The reception staff spoke good english.As did all the staff we met. We were taken to our room on a golf buggy which was fun.

We had a one bedroom apartment. It was fitted out as a complete self catering unit. Kettle, toaster even a lemon squeezer! The cooker was a small one but whos on holiday to cook? Airconditioning was simple to use. We had a sofa and chair. The TV even got BBC1. The bathroom had a bath with a shower inside, which is rare for this part of the world.The bedroom was of a good size ,there was ...
a wardrobe and a very good hair dryer.
The plugs are the same as the Uk so don\'t bring adapters.

The resort has a good layout nothing is very far away and no-one really over looks anyone else. Everything is close at hand. The beach has thick grass on it which is much better than hot sand.The beach is ok for paddleing but it shelved deepy so not good for kids.

The pool was very good half shallow, half deep and a small kids pool. The breakfasts were of very high standard buffet style with English and other foods. We had 2 evening meals in the hotel which were buffet style and very good value 3 courses for

The Mullen Family had a holiday at Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Hotel, Paphos, Cyprus in June 2005
Just returned from our 2nd stay at the Kefalos Beach and thankfully nothing had changed! The staff even remembered us from last year! Could\'nt believe when they even gave us the same room as last year too!

What can you say about the kefalos beach? The location is perfect, the rooms perfect, the staff wonderful, all in all this is a perfect holiday for families.

we tend to go into town at night to eat as we are getting to know where to go (that was our 4th visit to Paphos) a few places to try... The mexicana is delicious, the Sisyfos great value for money... the list goes on... but the creme de la creme has to be Chloes Chinese... absolutely stunning food and service...

In the Kefalos it is so relaxed with plenty of entertainment, no fighting for sunbeds as they ...
are plentyful, the pool is delicious and a welcome break from the gorgeous weather (never seen a cloud in the sky every time we\'ve been!).

Only thing to watch out for is in July and August it gets a little too hot, between 40 to 47 degrees. I think one of the great things about Paphos is it has a zero crime rate so you always feel safe no matter what time in the morning you are venturing back to your hotel.

I would recommend the Kefalos to anyone and would be stunned to find anyone who didn't enjoy this tourist village... Top marks for this place and its staff.

We are going back next year and I wouldn't be suprised if we get the same room again!

Nichola and Jon visited the Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Hotel in September 2004
We went to Kefalos for our honeymoon and it was fantastic.

Our apartment was spotless, the view was gorgeous and the staff were amazing, in particular Nur the barman and Karin the receptionist.

We couldn\'t have picked a better place to go for our honeymoon. Thanks guys, we didn\'t want to come home.

Jill & Glyn stayed at Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Hotel, Paphos, Cyprus in August 2004
The Village is well thought out in regard to the lay out .
It has good facilaties, and found it to be very clean.
However the pool is a bit small for the amount of people.
The use of large inflatables makes for a very congested pool.
We had a one bed room apartment and found it a little cramped for storge of clothes.
A Very good hairdryer is provied so dont take one with you.
Also the air con is very welcome addition to the rooms.
The pool bar food was not good.
On sight shop very good and normal prices to the rest of the resort.

I have visited paphos prieviously and spotted the kefalos beach village and fell in love with it. The beautiful pool, buildings and grass area, right on the beach. we just had to go there on our second trip to cyprus. we found that the whole experience was better that expected. The apartment was spotless, with a maid coming round every day. the entertainment staff were brilliant, we even knew the hotel dance by the end of the week.The place was amazing. This was one of those holidays when it gets to the end and you dont want to go home, you would rather stay ther forever. Im definaltey booking up for next year.

Jackie & Jo had a holiday at Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Hotel, Paphos, Cyprus in June 2004
Kefalos Beach was a fantastic place.We have had some really good holidays but this was one of the best! Our arrival was quite late but we were given aride in a buggy to our room and a full explanation of everything inside. We had a wonderful view of the magnificent pool and the apartment was so clean and well designed. The whole complex was great and the staff were so friendly and helpful. My daughter had a birthday during our stay and she had a wonderful day thanks to the staff. We also ate out for her birthday at Fat Mamas,what an experience! Food to die for and staff who made areal fuss of her,it was great. I can thoroughly recommend this village and will be returning as soon as I can.

Hadle visited the Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Hotel in April 2004
This is a hotel with self catering appartments. The location is perfect, easy walking distance with all the local restaurants bars and clubs with local food as well as traditional English, Chinese etc. We ate breakfast in the resort once, but it wasn\'t too great. However there is so much entertainment and the staff are so friendly it didn\'t seem to matter. Overall it is very good value for money and I recommend the \'King Phillips\' and \'Fish Taverna\' for local food, which are to the left of the resort, and the \'Sisyfos\' restaurant has an excellent range of meals and all the locals are freindly and speak English! We recommend this resort for anyone, any age.
