We stayed at Dimitris (currently going through a re-brand to Pefkos Blue) 20th July 2013 for a week. We arrived late and were shown to our room, it was hot but having 2 small kids (3 and 5), we had prepared ourselves for the additional cost of air con for the week as we booked through Thomas cook so wasn't included in the price. This was about €60 and is unlimited use. My understanding is that if you book independantly, you get the this and breakfast included. The room was spacious and we put both kids in the walled off section that would normally be a mini-lounge. The room was cleaned EVERY DAY and in addition they changed the towels and sheets every other day. It was spotless. The pool is clean and has a 50cm deep kids section and steps down into the main pool. The bar is really nicely decked out with comfy chairs and the view is fabulous, bar snacks are reasonable and tasty. They offer, but don't seem to advertise, an a la carte menu in the evening which is simply gorgeous!! It's contemporary Greek and reasonable prices. If this gets advertised properly - there will be no spaces at dinner each night !! We had an older room and when I saw a newer room I could tell these were the ones on their website. Nothing wrong with the older rooms though, very clean. The staff (I think brothers) do seem to live on site and there is someone available from 8am right until midnight when the bar closes, they are friendly and whenever we had any query or problem - they were really helpful. I would have scored the property 5 but you have to mention THE HILL. We did it almost every night (5 yr old managed up and down every night but 3yr old would only walk down).It is taxing, but realistically only takes about 10 (down) to 15 mins (up!). And if you really can't face the walk - it's about €4 in a taxi. We loved it here, very, very relaxing. We also did the glass bottom boat trip to Lindos (the couple who run this were hilarious, esp the commentry on the boat). I would definitely recommend this place to couples and families.
