Zeus Hotel is a short drive outside the resort of Kefalos, which is near the south western end of Kos, a Greek island in the Dodecanese. Two-thirds of the coastline of Kos is beach and it's known for its clear seas. The family-run hotel is in a peaceful, rural setting with views of the mountains. Zeus Hotel has an outdoor pool area that's serviced by a pool bar. As well as the main pool, there is a separate kids' pool, so it's easy to keep the children entertained while you relax with a drink or take a dip. The hotel's rooms have simple wooden furniture and have fresh look. The sandy beach at Kamari Bay is steps away, and the surrounding area has lots of cafÈs, bars and tavernas by the sea serving traditional Greek food. It also has some low-key nightlife options. The older part of Kefalos, at the top of the hill, is a maze of narrow alleyways with traditional whitewashed homes featuring blue painted doors. If you fancy a hike, there's the remains of a ruined Byzantine castle above the town, or you could take a gentler stroll along to the harbour where you can take a boat trip or just admire the luxury yachts that are moored up there.
Zeus is 250m from Kamari Bay and 3km from the centre of Kefalos. From Kamari Bay you can see the tiny islet of Kastri, with castle ruins on top, along with the blue and white Agios Nikolaos church that featured in the Mamma Mia! movie. It's one of the most photographed places on Kos, and if you want a closer look you can go by boat or jet ski. You could even swim out if you're feeling fit enough. You might want to take a picnic to the icon-filled Agios Ioannis Monastery, a short drive from Kefalos, as it has benches with uninterrupted views over the sea.
The hotel offers a continental breakfast in the morning. The pool bar serves drinks and snacks such as toasties from morning until the early evening. The main bar in the reception area opens from early evening until the small hours for drinks, including international alcohol brands.
The hotel organises Greek nights and quiz evenings.
Rooms at Zeus have air conditioning, central heating, access to Wi-Fi and a mini-fridge.
