It was our second time here, a very nice and good place to stay but I am sorry to say that the cleaning is not that good anymore...... The staff contains some very nice waiters, Umit is very good, people at the lobbybar and reception and also Fatma and the man on the nonsmoking side of the restaurant (i am sorry i forgot his name) are excellent! Also the Belgian Nathalie is very good
This was my second visit to kefaluka and we love it once again I would like to thank I ismail and his team and umit and nami they all remember us from last year it was great to see them again we have book for next year aswell has we love it. I would not fault it has it was great this year has it was last year thanks once again and see you next year
This was a fabulous resort for all the family but the magic has been lost. This was our 4th visit and although we had a great time with family and friends this was largely down to Ismail and his fabulous Animation Team. Lots to do if you like activities and plenty of places to chill if that's what you prefer. Animation team are the best ever, a superb bunch, so friendly and attentive but the praise ends there. The hotel looks tired and standards of cleanliness and the food on offer have gone downhill rapidly. The hotel is under new management (6 months ago) but they are not delivering where it matters. Glasses in the bar were not clean, towels for pool were dirty, months of sticky mess on floors, cigarette end in our cupboard floor, food in buffet lacked variety, food was lukewarm & bland, very poor selection on offer. We asked on several occasions for more variety and occasionally things improved but only for one meal before normal service resumed. This was our 4th visit and, sadly, our last. Not even the highly entertaining Animation Team can save this sinking ship. A view echoed amongst many repeat guests that we met.
bathroom is old and dirty and not good for disabled persons, its not a 5 starr resort but 3. the food is not as goor as it was 4 years ago. please update it all. Would like too come back but then they have too modify a lot of things
Second visit to the Kefaluka! this time we booked a Deluxe room and it was amazing :) top floor, massive bed, lots of room and a HUGE balcony looking over the pool. We visited in September so was slightly quieter as coming to the end of the season. Animation team as good as before, so many activities and the evening entertainment in the amphitheater was awesome! One day they did a lottery (tickets £2.50/ 10 Turkish Lira) and we won a free back massage at the spa! Turkish bath was amazing with great spa facilities. As we have been before we were invited to a reunion near the beach where they did a BBQ and drinks. The only let down in the hotel is the food, last year it was much better. I spend most of the week eating bread as the food was similar every night with not much selection. Last year they had themed evening.. Turkish night, Chinese and so on. We will definitely be going back next year with the hope that the food has improved!
I love this hotel! This hotel has a suberb view of the sea and Kos. Also, the hotel has great sportfacilities and very friendly personell. This was our fourth time here and we will keep coming. They had new matresses on the bed this year. Hopefully they will invest in the rooms for the next years to come, because brand new hotels are popping up everywhere. One day your in, and one day your out.
Me and my fiancé stayed here for 10 days and couldn't fault it. Firstly the staff were incredibly friendly and professional. A special thank you to Vaxo (animation team), Umet and Huseyin (Bar staff) who really made our stay extra brilliant. The food was amazing and had plenty of choice. The al a carte fish restaurant was beautiful. The snack bar was brilliant and had lots to choose from. We expected the entertainment to be a bit poor and cheesy but we were shocked at the quality especially the fire night. All in all there are so many great things about Kefaluka. The views were outstanding!! Thank you for a great holiday we didn't want to leave 😊😊
I have just returned from a week stay at the Kefaluka Resort. I will start by saying this is not a 5* resort as is being advertised. I would say this is 3*, 4* at a push. The hotel itself is beautiful, the views are amazing and the hotel is very well kept. I felt that we did not receive the treatment guests should receive at a 5* resort. Having stayed at Xanadu which is also 5* in May (this hotel is across the sea from Kefaluka), Xanadu really set the standard for what a 5* resort should be. At Xanadu, we were served poolside all day, from bottled water all day, to drinks, ice cream, anything you wanted. This did not happen at Kefaluka. The food was well cooked, however there is not much of a variety. They do not have a snack bar or snack food to have instead of the buffet lunch. Xanadu had a snack menu including pizza, burgers etc which was perfect as it broke up the day and meant you didn't have to have buffet morning, noon and night. The only snack food they had to offer was overcooked chicken wings and chips at the pool bar. To say we were bored of buffet food 3 days in would be an understatement! The shop in the hotel was also not great if you wanted to buy your own snacks. No variety of food/snacks. The service wasn't great. I hate to say it's because we are English but from observing other guests from other countries and the service they received, I can only assume that this was our problem. One evening at dinner we were completely ignored and went our whole meal without a drink (not even water), we tried to get the staff's attention numerous times but went completely ignored. I also expected to be served drinks at breakfast considering this hotel calls itself 5*, but this did not happen. In a 5* resort, that is not even half of full capacity, we SHOULD NOT have to continuously ask for a drink at dinner. It is a restaurant, we should be approached when we sit down and offered a drink. This happened once our entire holiday. The kitchen staff also made myself and my friend feel very uncomfortable. Staring and leering whenever we were getting our food. The kitchen staff at Xanadu were nothing but respectable, I cannot say the same for Kefaluka. Also, whilst I do not expect to go abroad and have everyone speaking/understand fluent English, it would not hurt for staff to understand basic English. Such as Coke, lemonade, glass, knife, fork etc. It was a struggle some days just trying to get what we wanted, and most times if they didn't understand they would just bring us the wrong thing. We did thoroughly enjoy the pavilion on the beach that we hired for the day. At 100 euros however this did not come cheap. We were served breakfast and lunch (from a menu, hallelujah!). The lady looking after us that day was so lovely and helpful. I do not agree with the cost of the beach pavilions however it meant getting away from the noisy pool and actually receiving some 5* service that we had been expecting all holiday. I would suggest that they make the far end of the pool with the Jacuzzi section an adults only section. The pool is big enough, as is the huge children's section, to have a small section of peace and quiet for guests without children. The noise of the Jacuzzi jets, various guests playing their music through speakers poolside and the music from the daily entertainment show made it extremely hard to relax. The towels were also so dirty it made me wish I had taken my own. The room itself was ok, nothing to write home about. The bathroom was dated and the shower was not powerful at all. The balcony is utterly ridiculous, it is tiny. There is also the issue of a member of staff finding my friends social media from the room booking and messaging her privately (numerous times), which I will be taking up with the holiday providers directly. All in all, I would not return to Kefaluka. They don't accommodate for English guests, I am guessing it is because we are so few and far between at the moment in Turkey. The service was not good at all. We paid the same price to stay here as we did to stay at Xanadu, and can say for definite that we will be returning there. This hotel should be downgraded to 4* at most.
The hotel is too big, so you have to walk too much or use the lifts to get somewhere. The staff can be friendlier. The food is fine, but at the end of the season more and more products are getting on and are no longer replenished. In our experience, the hotel lacks atmosphere and the pool bar is a little small which makes it uncomfortable. Because you're out of space, you need a van to get there. The view is beautiful. We are not going back here because we are more oriented small-scale.
The resort has a remacable vieuw, it good been luxuries, perfect. The food was oke, good been better, most of the personel was not very friendly, some were very nice. The cleaning wasn't very good, clean towels every day but we had to adk.if the could vacume and mop the floor. Also.in the restaurant and bars was it not very clean.
