27 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"Forget Ryan Air problems, The Pantheon and the rest of Kos lives. We stayed from the 8th to 15th October and, boy, was it warm! In my opinion, the best time to come to Kos for a really quiet holiday: The sea is warm, the people are warmer and, even the pool is warm! Too warm at 9.00 a.m. if you want to sober up from the night before! I am coming back very soon - next Monday, in fact. This resort, Kefalos, needs all our support, which it deserves. The greatest view on earth - even with some yacht from a bloke who owns Chelsea Football Club. Strangely enough, he left the same day as we did."

The view of the Gods
"I have been staying here, my second home, since 2005. There is nothing more to say really: the best views, the best service, the best pool and the best pool table. Phillip Morgan"

"Arrived in the middle of the night greeted with an A4 sheet on block 2 of the hotel telling us our room number. Sadly we went to reception first and spent half hour messing about in the dark. This, however was the only snag of the whole holiday. The view from our room was the best we have ever had. The room was clean and had all the facilities we needed, (Kettle, toaster, A/C), the pool was large and clean with a cracking little baby pool for toddlers. Janet, Panos and family could not do enough for us and I can't believe anyone would describe her as rude. Can only imagine what that person must have done to make her that way. The hotel is set up on a hill, (Hence the amazing view) and is a fair walk from the resort but there is a mad minibus service, (Free) every couple of hours, (Last pick up 22.30), the resort itself is quiet but has plenty of Tavernas to choose from, (We only made 1 return visit in 2 weeks). Recommend the Dolphin Rock Bar for a last drink before tackling the hill at night, (Get a torch too). Don't bother going to old Kefalos village. It's gash and there's nothing there. The hotel barbecue and quiz night was also boss. A top hotel run by top folk in a lovely wee resort."

"The hotel was just what was needed, basic but very clean and in good working order. The best views we've had anywhere we have stayed, spectacular! The food was lovely and reasonably priced- better than the restaurants in the town. The family we're all very kind and helped with everything we asked. The pool was great too. I cannot understand the bad reviews to be honest, in our stay I couldn't fault one thing. All in all, we couldn't of asked for a nicer stay, a very welcoming hotel with lots of help on hand. I would definately go back!!! "

"An excellent holiday. Sited just outside the resort was ideal for a quiet holiday. Janet and all who worked in the Pantheon Apartments were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was as good as any in the resort. Stunning views over the bay. Rooms very clean. A must is a trip to neighbouting island Nissyros and its villages and extinct volcano. Best value for money both me and my wife have had. Hope to go back sooner rather than later. "

"Absolutely brilliant. we arrived at the hotel at 5am following a flight from Newcastle which arrived an hour early. Thomas Cook airlines have a lot of work to catch up with other tour operators they certainly pack you in, still the Pantheon has the best views I have ever seen. The hotel has fantastic views at the front or the Kefalos bay, and the various nearby Islands absolutely stunning, and the views out of the back of the hotel are also stunning with views of another beach that is used by wind surfers The hotel is run by the wonderful Janet who always makes time to talk to all guests and her tips and local knowledge certainly ensured we got the best from our holiday. The hotel is situated at the top of a hill hence the fantastic views, can be hard to walk up, but the hotel runs a number of free trips into Kefalos. The bus is old and green and known locally as Thunderbird 2 and is certainly a great bonus and saves walking to and from the main part of the resort. The rooms are a little basic but not unusual for Greece. The fellow guests were all very friendly and in the main British, the kids made great friends. Kefalos is a lovely resort a little on the quiet side for people looking for a lively resort (Kardemena is not far away) but absolutely fantastic for people looking for a relaxing holiday. My advice would be to hire a car, the island is small and the roads are very quiet, and having a car would enable you to see all the island at little cost. There is a regular bus service to KOS which costs 4 euros and takes just under an hour and the bus stop is right outside the hotel There are a number of restaurants in the resort offering a similar fayre, we loved Marias near the harbour but most restaurants have good value food served by very friendly staff, the food at the Pantheon is also very good I understand that Thomas Cook will not be going to the Pantheon next year so I would recommend anyone who likes to book the holiday and flights separately that this hotel is definitely worth the effort. Short sited by Thomas Cook in my opinion as all my fellow guests are looking to return in the future This is the most relaxing holiday I have been on with views that would take some beating anywhere in the world. We are looking to come back"

"we arrived at the apartments in a thunderstorm in the dark and we were greeted by the wonderful Janet who runs the apartment with her husband Panos and his family. When we awoke the next morning we opened the curtains to the most spectacular views across the bay. The rooms are basic but clean and reasonably well equipped. We had been to Kefalos before and knew what to expect. It is very quiet but very beautiful. Great food, people and beaches. Hire a car and go and explore this lovely island."

"We stayed for two weeks at the end of October 2007 and had a really relaxing holiday. Being the end of the season the resort was quiet, the lovely sandy beaches were also quiet with the sea being warmer than the swimming pool! The accomodation was more than satisfactory, and was in no way shabby or showing signs of 6 months of use. We had a two bedroomed apartment with sea views to die for, the dressing table mirror even revealed a sea view. To me a sea view is a must for any holiday accomodation, and or balcony gave us sea views through 270 degrees. The hoteliers are very friendly and accommodating. The little green bus (Thunderbird 2) was run according to the time table, the lack of taxis in the resort came as a surprise to us, but local buses got us out and about. Paradise beach is well worth a day out, and is on the bus route from a nearby stop. I would recommend The Pantheon to anyone looking for a friendly and inviting home aboard. ould I go again? Yes, most definitely and shall I start packing now? Please!"

My partner and I have just returned from...
"My partner and I have just returned from a week at the Pantheon and felt obliged to write a review to say how good our week was. Like me, you have probably been reading all sorts of conflicting reviews about this accommodation, so I would like to add my (pretty reasoned) review to try and encourage others to stay. Firstly, the accommodation... We have stayed in all types of accommodation in Greece from 2* S/C to 4* hotels and to be honest I would rank Pantheon up with the best! The room was a great size, the bathroom clean and modern. The kitchen was well supplied including a kettle (a real find in Greece) and toaster and the views from the balcony were out of this world. The pool was a little cold (but we were late in the season) but was very refreshing after a laze in the sun and was always very clean and tidy. The restaurant had a great range of food from 8am until 3pm and then again from 6pm until 10ish, and the prices were great. We had breakfast most mornings and couldn't fault the food. The Thursday/Sunday BBQ was fantastic too. Try the pizzas too, they are fantastic!! and location... It's probably worth noting that both me and my girlfriend are not afraid of walking and are in our 30's, so the walk into town was, to us, not that bad. It takes about an hour to walk down to the harbour, which by our reckoning is about 3 miles. But it only takes about 10 minutes to walk to the nearest supermarket ("Supermarket Jim") where you will be warmly greeted by the very friendly owner. The beach is also around 10 minutes via a footpath down the side of the Club Med Hotel. We walked into town quite a few times but, if tired or a bit worse for wear, "Thunderbird 2" was at hand to ease the return journey. The little green bus that the hotel run was great fun and provided an easy way to get right into the heart of town, by the harbour. The resort of Kefalos. We first visited Kefalos in 2000 and since then there has been a lot of building work and new bars opened. However, the numbers of people has dropped due, so I was told, to Thomsonâs withdrawing from the resort, taking some 400 beds. However, even in late Sept/early Oct, the town is still busy enough to be inviting and friendly. Compared to many other larger Greek islands and resorts, (Rhodes, Zante, Crete, Kefanolia and Halkidiki being the ones we have been to), the prices in Kos are still low. A beer was typically 1.5-2 euros (real beer, mind, Mythos!) and most main means were around 5-7 euros per person. We ate handsomely and never spent over 30 euros for the whole meal (and thatâs including a litre of wine) (hic). Finally, trips. If you only go on one trip - make it the sunset cruise. It was fantastic! A cruise with Capt Yiannis to the end of the island to watch the sunset, all the wine or ouzo you can manage and a BBQ on a private beach complete with Greek dancing lessons. Sheer heaven! I hope this review has helped in some way and that you will give the Pantheon a try. We loved it and will be back again soon."

We have just returned from a 2 week holi...
"We have just returned from a 2 week holiday at the Pantheon Studios and had a fabulous time. The owners are fantastic and go out of their way (especially Jan - who's English) to ensure your stay is perfect. The studios are fairly small but comfortable and come equipped with kettle, toaster etc. The views from the Pantheon are amazing both during the day and night, I have many pictures of proof. Around the pool area is very comfortable and you do not struggle to get sun loungers - these are free along with sun brollies. The food they serve at the Pantheon is also fantastic and would recommend the Lemon Cheesecake especially. As the studios are out of the main resort it isn't particularly suitable for the less mobile or young children. The owners do provide a courtesy bus but the last one back to the Studios is 10:30pm so if you are wanting a late night expect to walk back (takes approx 20-30mins). Prices at Pantheon Studios for food, drink, fan hire and safety deposit boxes are very reasonable compared to other accommodations I have stayed in. All in all a very relaxing place with a great atmosphere and you get very well looked after by the genuine owners; Jan, Panos, Babis and Maria."
