Absolutely adore Kefalos (possibly a retirement place for us), lovely beach and harbour, great restaurants, too many good ones to name, but very rarely disappointed. Always end the night with Yiannis & Manos at Marias bar on the harbour road and if you enjoy your football, they have at least five screens showing different games simultaneously - big bonus for me. Great atmosphere when major tournaments on.

We hired a pedalo to go round the little island just off Kefalos beach. Very cool! We even had time to beach the pedalo and look over the island which has a church on it. We hired a buggy and went to Lido Water Park. It was very organised, well layed out. A tip, go round in your sandals!

Kefalos is a beautiful resort. Very quiet and evening entertainment is limited but a brilliant beach and lovely shops and bars. A must is to take a trip to Zia, a beautiful little village high in the mountains and the sunset is amazing. Highly recommended.

For a number of years we have gone to Kefalos and enjoyed every holiday we have had there. We have stayed at quite a few hotels but like the hotel Kamari Bay the best - friendly, basic but fine, lovely pool and location and looking at a September break at this moment.

We never ventured far from our hotel, so can't really comment on the resort but, when we were dropped at the harbour to cross to the small island for the wedding reception, it looked like there were quite a few bars and restaurants around there.

I would say 5 stars but that's just because it's what I like, sleepy little town, not too busy and not much to do so not for everyone I guess. But the restaurants are great and quite cheap. Bravo is a great bar and sun beds are free if you buy food or drink.
