Impressive sea views and a great choice of pools make a winning combination here.
This place has a tranquil setting, with mountains rising above and the blue waters of Akyarlar Bay beckoning below. Walkways lead down to the sea through the gardens, which are dotted with rattan sunloungers.
There’s a great pool scene here, with sections for activities, relaxation and waterslides. Food-wise, there’s an array of restaurants, including a seafood à la carte, and there are plenty of bars to go around as well.

**BEST HOLIDAY EVER!**
Loved every minute of every day, didn't want it to end. Transfer was 1 hr 15 mins. It was only the last 15 mins that were bumpy and not as bad as some reviews had led us to believe. I don't know if we had been upgraded but our room was lovely and spacious with two huge double beds, and very comfortable. Lovely big wardrobe but not enough hangers, so pack some extra. Only downside to room is it desparetely needs a set of drawers....and there is plenty of room to put some in. We didn't feel the restaurant was 5* quality, that's our only gripe. We felt the staff were over worked and didn't have time to clear tables quick enough or to attend to us properly. We just never felt a "Wow" feeling about the restaurant at. But........EVERYTHING else about the hotel gets a MASSIVE thumbs up from us.There is good food available all day long in various different places. The tasty jacket potatoes and freshly made waffles went down a treat with our 12yr old son....and us! The Saturday market is a must! The best 'genuine' fakes you will find. Lol. Next time we will take an empty suitcase to bring home plenty. But make sure you haggle. They will drop their prices VERY low. This hotel has the BEST animation team we've ever met! I hope the hotel management are aware just how good they are. They are not at all pushy......but are so friendly, welcoming and absolutely hilarious. How they remember everyone's names (even the nicknames they give to lots) amazes me. We found ourselves looking forward to the next activity all day long. Aqua gym, water polo, table tennis, archery to name just a few without even mentioning 'killer darts'. We didn't go because we wanted to do these activities but mainly because these lads mad these events such a lot of fun that these became the highlights of the day. Even those that didn't want to participate would come and sit just to watch and have a laugh. The pools are stunning, and watching the sunset across the bay is amazing. The hotel is wonderfully clean and spotless everywhere, and staff are eager to please and always welcoming with a smile. We are defo booking to return next year. There are a lot of wonderful hotels in the world but we will be returning mainly because the animation team made our holiday one long week filled with laughter and smiles, and made us feel good...:-)More

BEST PLACE EVER
Brilliant place to take children , the place was absolutely immaculate , food was very good , but what really made the holiday for us were the ENTERTAINMENT team , these boys work so hard , and do the best job of everyone in the whole resort , so encouraging to all children and adults but not atal forceful , also my children don't tend to go to kids club as they don't normally enjoy but this one my 7 year old daughter was asking to go , the lady you can tell does it because she loves it .waiters could have been friendlier ( but I think it was prob due to being the last week of the season ) . The only thing I would say is don't bother booking with JET 2 as they were useless , and all the stuff on in hotel was hotel run and nothing to do with jet 2 . I wouldn't fly with them again ... Very basic . But this hotel is just perfect , it is away on its own , so if you like walking into a busy shopping village then that is the ONLY downsideMore

Relaxed October break at a great hotel
We visited the hotel in October this year. Arriving at night the sight of the hotel lit up on the peninsula was greeted by my daughter with a "wow". It didn't disappoint. The room was spacious with a decent sized balcony half covered and half uncovered. We had a large sofa bed and a king size bed with plenty of cushions and pillows for lounging about. The bathroom had a window with blind to the bedroom, wardrobes in which the lights went on when opened, a safe and a well supplied mini bar. The room was well furnished and modern. We were on the floor with the disco but at the opposite end and were unaffected by noise. The main restaurant provided a good selection of hot and cold food at all meals, tables were cleared quickly, staff friendly and drinks brought to the table. There was a large ice-cream cake carried out by the chefs one evening and some outstanding fish including a large salted one another evening. In fact there was something for everyone every evening. We were only there a week and given the good selection of food in the main restaurant didn't venture to the a la carte restaurants for which there was a 10 Euro cover charge (50% for children). Others we met visited the Italian restaurant and were very pleased with it. Also available in the bar area were baked potatoes in the late afternoon and snacks including chicken and burgers if you didn't fancy heading into the main restaurant for lunch. The coffee bar was a great stop after a day by the pool and the ice-creams (available almost all day) and fresh waffles also proved popular! The pools and area surrounding them were spotlessly clean. There was even a drinks trolley at certain times delivering drinks to those of us on loungers! A great selection and quantity of loungers and umbrellas meant there was a spot for everyone. The pools were well designed with an ideal separate area for water polo - a daily highlight for many. Other activities we enjoyed included archery, football, table tennis and of course the water slides. In fact I'd really recommend the hotel for those with young teenagers - there's plenty going on and it's location makes it feel particularly safe. It also has shooting, pool, squash and tennis courts, and a cinema offering daily showings (late). Though there are additional costs for a number of these activities they seemed reasonably priced.The beach is small but clean and the water is clear and refreshing (it felt warmer than the pool at this time of year). There were also shoals of impressive quite sizable blue fish around the end of the pier. During the day we ventured out to a Turkish bath in Gumbet which the rep promoted (if we go again we'd probably stay in the hotel Turkish bath - though more expensive it was far more peaceful and relaxing!), the day boat trip from Gumbet stopping at several bays (which is now a family favourite) and to the market in Turgutreis. This was much better than expected. With plenty of goods on offer it's just next to the Dolmus central station (the Dolmus which we took back to the hotel was less than half the price of the hotel shuttle which took us there). As others have said the entertainment team were great and not at all pushy. They certainly ensured a good range of activities for all every day. It's not often you find one of the daytime entertainers is a flame thrower in the evening! Most evenings there were professional entertainers booked. The Miss Kefaluka contest was an eye opener but a great laugh too! All in all I'd definitely recommend the hotel and would visit again though I think 10 days would be better than 7! It is in a quiet location but the quality is excellent.More

We travelled as two families and had a fantastic holiday at Kefaluka but I have to say it's the friendly staff that make it perfect. We also took a private transfer to the resort and this made the terrible roads feel much better. On arrival, just after midnight, we checked in very quickly and was shown to our superior family room - which was large, airy and very clean , but unfortunately the air conditioning was very poor. In the morning I went to reception and they said they would change my room, I was then given a top floor family suite with a separate bedroom - this was fantastic as it gave the 3 of us plenty of room and plenty of wardrobe and storage space and also fantastic views across to Kos. Breakfast was ok but no fresh omelettes. The lunches and evening meals were much better and there is a huge choice. The special themed nights are great too with lots of choices. We sampled the a la carte restaurants several times, the food there is superb and a little 10 lira tip helped get the waiters to look after us- but the waiters were very good anyway! We were looked after by a number of very helpful members of staff at the resort, especially Ali & Rifat in the main bar- Ali was very friendly and looked after our whole party including the children at all times, Ehyup in the restaurant was excellent and very attentive,but without a doubt it's the Animation Team that help give this resort it's 5 star rating. Ismail and all his team do an excellent job and they go out of their way to be friendly and chat to everyone throughout the day. They made our holiday an unforgettable experience - such fun! As mentioned by Andy, in his review, DJ Ali & DJ Inanc play fantastic music by the pool during the day and cranked it up for the entertainment, moonlight disco and B5 nightclub later in the evening. Vako with his morning gym and afternoon water gym sessions were fantastic - he is a very nice funny man, Tayfun's table tennis and archery tournaments, Tuna's French Boules and football with Yousuf Kenan and Burak were all great fun. However, the fantastic water polo with the entire team really kept us all entertained, again the music played during this time is brilliant. Eray is very friendly and he was fantastic with our little girl and always made her feel very special. 'Darts time' is another highlight of the day, Eray is a funny and quick witted entertainer and turned killer darts into a show that you didn't want to miss! Thank you Kefaluka you've given us a memorable holiday which I'm sure will be repeated next year! In summary, we made new friends with some of the other guests, and the staff and animation team and enjoyed the shows and the discos with them all at night A special end to our holiday was some of the animation team and guests we had made friends with came and waved us off!!!! We will be back !!!! Kefaluka - look after your Animation team - they made or holiday special from the oldest to the youngest in our party!!!More
Conference setting just wish I was here longer on vacation.
What a glorious place with great views, great food and friendly staff. While here for conference just wish I had more time to spend touring the area. The views of the Aegean Sea are outstanding. The resort has much to offer and it's all inclusiveness provides options for all. More
