The Kefalonitis Apartments are located close to some of Paphos’ most ancient sights. And the convenience of its location doesn’t stop there. You’re also just across the road from the nearest bars and less than two kilometres from the Old Town and harbour.
Mind you, we’re not suggesting you’ll be in any immediate hurry to leave the Kefalonitis. After all there is, as you’d expect, a swimming pool flanked by sunbeds and parasols. What’s more, there’s a poolside snack bar if you become at all peckish or thirsty. After this, you’ve got two options. Either self indulge a little more in the sauna or whirlpool bath. Or better still, treat yourself to a wonderfully relaxing massage.
Alternatively, up the ante in the gym or take in a few sets on the tennis courts. The choice is yours. Likewise your evenings – why not head out for a good meal and take in some local flavour before retiring to the Kefalonitis with its bar and lounge?

Good value for money...
Stayed with a friend for a week self catering in a one bedroom apartment. Found the apartment to be really clean and decorated to a high standard, simple but welcoming. Had a Balcony and enough facilities to cook yourself a simple breakfast (didn't pay to eat in the hotel). The hotel has a reasonably sized pool surround with enough sun beds for those wishing to stay nearby to soak up the beloved Cypriot sun. We chose to walk to the Lighthouse Beach a short 10 minute walk away. This was a local beach and therefore not too crowded and hectic like Coral Bay a much more well known beach a bus ride away. The cleaner was great and certainly done a very thorough job. We could only get wi-fi in the reception area. Location wise to us it was perfect. Not in the town centre but within close enough proximity that we never took a bus or taxi from the centre (was like a 20 minute walk) and left all the night life behind in Bar Street. There was more a "family" feel to the apartments (as expected) but there were no particular boisterous British guest as so sadly can often be the case. Overall a good find, recommended.More

Really a bargain
The hotel was advertised as awarded with traveller's choice in a bargain category. And it seems to be a bargain indeed. The appartment (1 bedroom) was very spacious, clean and well maintained. The furniture was quite new and aesthetic, kitchen equipment adequate (including microwave oven), aircondition (two separate appliances - in living room and bedroom) worked well and effectively (but only with keycard inserted to the main switch). We were assigned the appartment just upstairs the reception, so we had wifi signal in the room (commonly available only in the entrance lobby). You should not expect any stunning views from the balcony, as the complex is located in a built up area. Cleaning service was ok, the only problem were the ants but they were struggling with them. The pool is not big and pool area noisy, so are probably the rooms overlooking the pool. The complex is located in shopping/restaurant area, not far from main Pafos attractions - king's tombs and archaeological park (and the centre of Paphos itself). The best beach around is sandy Coral Beach - approximtely 10 km north from Pafos - very picturesque but a bit too crowded in the season. If you prefer the calm one the Avdimou beach should be advised (40 km west from Pafos, in the area of British military base - access only by car). A car is of course reccomended to visit the main higlights of the island, especialy as the rentals are not very expensive. But be careful, they drive the wrong side of the road :))More

I don't know...
whether some of the recent reviewers stayed at the same apartments as us. We were there for a week beginning 6th October. Weather was gorgeous the whole time. Stayed in one of the apartments above Reception, which (if balanced on the fridge-freezer) allowed us to access the free Wifi in the apartment which was nice. The apartment itself was massive for a 0ne-bedroom and spotlessly clean. Towels were changed every day and sheets more than the twice a week promised. Never saw one cockroach although there were two small lizards spotted on the roof of the balcony at one point lol. Bonus! We love lizards. The cocktails were good, the lunch menu tasty. We enjoy either going out to eat or even eating in...it's why we choose self-catering. Would recommend Thomas's Jungle and Nostalgia restaurants (go to totk road, turn left). The only downside was that the large Orphanides supermarket nearby has closed. Pool and surrounding area well kept. Staff lovely. Nicos his usual self. Despite it being 5 years since our last visit not a lot has changed. Still a very enjoyable place to stay. BTW Nicos, we owe you for a glass. Had a bit of a disaster at the last minute, which is why we were late for coach. We'll settle up with you next time 'cos there will be a next time!More

Beautiful as always
Just returned from the wonderful kef. 24th consecutive year going back to this hotel and everything as perfect as ever. Rooms are always spotless homely and well equipped. In 24 years never had a single complaint with the room, linen and towels changed frequently and always fresh and white! Rooms are spacious and bright and ours had 2 balconys! The beds are comfortable. Really great air con in the room, electric is operated on the key fob understandably but of course the fridge freezer etc is not operated from this!! I would also say how lovely all the staff are here so very accommodating if you did have a single problem they would correct anything and go out of their way for you straight away. The swimming pool area is always well maintained and the pool spotlessly clean plenty of sunbeds and space. As with any Mediterranean destination you expect to see the occasional cockroach or lizard but you are lucky to see 1 or 2 roaches in a 2 week stay here! Ants yes maybe if you leave a little mess/crumbs etc on the work surfaces but a problem easily sorted with a can of 99p spray :) so many family's go back to this accommodation year after year so this really speaks for itself. Thanks for another fantastic holiday see you next time sue and Colin xMore
Not a 3* accommodation - shabby, shame can't add 'chic' to go with it!
First the good points - location wise quite ideal, 15 minute walk to Paphos harbour and 15 minute bus ride to Coral Beach.......that's where it ends. I'm not one to normally complain and perhaps on this occasion I should have (to the Jet 2 rep), but having paid just under £1000 for two to stay at this complex for a week (Sept 18th - 25th), I'm afraid I expected slightly more than we got. As mentioned, first impressions were that it was an ideal location, quiet and within walking distance to many good pubs and Paphos harbour. However, the apartment we stayed in was what can only be described as 'dire' and extremely 'shabby'!. Two lights had the glass fittings missing, one had no bulbs so the entrance hall was pretty bleak when you came in on a night,the other had no glass shade so just the bare bulb on show. The freezer door was broken, so when the electric was not on (when you're away from your room), any contents in the freezer did at time defrost and seep out, the regular occurrence of cockroaches in the bathroom that crept out of the wood architrave round the door and a hole in the tiling was a little off putting to say the least. The work surface is the kitchen area was pealing badly and all sorts of buts were caught in the pealing plastic. The stool that you sat on in front of the dressing table only had three legs so it was a balancing act when you sat on it, the wardrobes had a musty smell about them that transferred to your clothes and the two small towels were only changed once in the whole time we were there, I believe the bedding was changed only once and then it was only the top sheet that was changed. Finally, the beds are absolutely rock hard and even my husband who claims he could sleep on a washing line struggled with how uncomfortable they were, we had to try and pad my bed out with the blankets that were in the room along with an air mattress that we had taken. By day three of the holiday I was suffering with sleep deprivation and my husband wasn't fairing too much better, which was a great shame as day three was actually our wedding anniversary and we spent the day trying to catch up on some sleep (me on the sofa and my husband on the padded bit of the bed). After a 7 hour delay in the airport when we were coming home I felt compelled to write to Jet 2 and in the nicest possible way, express my disappointment that in my opinion due to the reason listed above, this was not a 3 * accommodation and that they ought to be aware at how shabby the apartments actually were (at no point was I trying to get any compensation, I just wanted to draw things to their attention and enclosed pictures of missing light fittings, cockroaches, etc). Suffice to say, that the letter I received back from them was unbelievable.........Jet 2 had contacted the owners of the Kefalonitis Apartments and apparently the day after our departure they claim they found the glass shade WE had apparently broken on the floor, more broken glass was found in the bin insinuating that WE had also broken the other shade, yes they acknowledged the freezer door was broken but again insinuated that it had been fine before we used the apartment and that we had to expect cockroaches in warm country's !. I'm sorry but for the money we paid I expected better, much better and would NEVER go back to these apartments. We holiday usually twice a year, the September holiday is usually Cyprus as we got married in Cyprus so go back to celebrate our wedding anniversary, but this is one holiday I would never like to repeat, and unfortunately the apartment owners lies to Jet 2 have left a very bitter taste in my mouth. On a more positive note - be sure to visit Lily at the English Rose bar at Paphos Harbour - some of the cheapest and best drinks about and Lily is a lovely little welsh girl. Also, visit Alfies - just a 5 minute walk down on the main road on the right hand side - such a warm welcome and again some of the cheapest cocktails about. If you're wanting free wifi you can actually receive it all the way down the main road, from the delicious cafe to McDonalds, and once you've connected once with the password you automatically re-connect when you're back in the vicinity .More
