“A good place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We have been to Stella's many times and have always found it very friendly. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The hotel is a short and pleasant walk to the beach. The hotel offers breakfast and lunch and snacks reasonably priced. Three pools one for babies and toddlers, a second for small children and a third for those who can swim with a shallow end of about one meter.
Close by are shops, tavernas resturants and bars. You can hire a car and there is a taxi rank just across the road. There is a bus service from Pefcos to Rhodes town and to Lindos (a world heritage site). There seems to be no noticeable problems caused by the down turn in the Greek economy; to find out more by local an ouzo ot two.
We have always had great holidays in Pefcos hope you do.

Hi everyone we stayed at these apartments in Oct 2012 for 2weeks and would recommend staying here, apartments very nice with plenty of room.Bedding and towels changed on a regular basis and rooms cleaned every day.The lady in reception called Joy, who was english was very nice and helpful please go and say hello to her.The area of Pefkos has plenty of bars and places to eat and just up the hill from the apartments is a lovely little shop that sells English food and wonderful cakes yum yum.We also hired a car for 3 days and went round the island and visited the old town of Rhodes which is a must if you are into local history, you can also visit Turkey for the day . All in all holiday very nice and enjoyable.

We recently returned fron a lovely week at the Stella Hotel in Pefkos, Rhodes. The weather was perfect, around 25-28 degrees all week. The hotel was fine, rooms clean and tidy. The bed was too hard for me, but ok for a week. Only down side was the room was right by the road and could be quite noisy in the mornings. We didnt spend much time there, but the traffic noise woke us up every day!! would recommend asking for a room on the other side of the complex. The hotel had a lovely pool, very clean and while we were there, very quiet. We were there in the second week in October and the resort is starting to wind down so there is not much going on. This was fine for us but might be a little quiet for some. The beaches in Pefkos are nice, and the sea was wonderful for swimming. We found the food in the resturants a bit uninspiring, they all seemed to have the same menu! we searched in vain all week for a fish resturant! however, the prices were ok and the local beer is good. We enjoyed our week, and would probably visit again if we needed a week in the sun.

Room Tip: Email the hotel before your stay to ask for a room away from the road.

Our latest venture to Greece was to the Stella Hotel , in Pefkos , Oct 17th - 31st . Having stayed in numerous hotels / apartments in various Greek resorts on various islands , I must say this was certainly the the best . Accomodation is usually basic , but what a surprise at the Stella hotel . We have previously experienced ancient dilapidated furniture , tired decor , fixtures and fittings hanging off the walls , electric lights loose or wiring hanging out of fittings , and lots more . The Stella Hotel had none of these . The rooms were clean and decorated well with the most modern furniture we have seen in previous apartments . We had 2 rooms , the bedroom had nice wardrobes and furniture and even coat hooks on the wall , and its own balcony . The dining / kitchen / living area had 2 bed settees , a good assortment of cooking utensils and crockery . There was a 2 ring hob , fridge , toaster , microwave and kettle , and the room also had a balcony . Both rooms had an aircon unit , which if used would cost €185 for 2 weeks . There is a slight incline to the side of the hotel , but there is also access from the main road to the complex . The rooms are cleaned daily and the beds re-made , every day except Sunday . Situated where the Stella is , it is easy to get to the many bars and restaurants in Pefkos . All in all a very pleasant place to stay and would have no problems booking there again and would have no problem recommending the Stella . Just a quick mention about the Fuse Bar , on beech road , where Kiriakos ( or Jack as most people come to call him ) made us most welcome . He is a real character , as is his father who did the cooking at the free barby on our last night . The only very minor gripe is that at the end of October , you will see bars and restaurants closing gradually as the season comes to a close , but having said this , we had no difficulty finding places to dine , and the supermarket at the top of the hill is open all year round

We booked a late break through Airtours (Thomas Cook) having previously stayed in Pefkos at the Evi Studios but didn't know anything about the Stella Hotel - what a pleasant susprise we were in for! We were warned about there being a bit of a climb but, to be honest, it wasn't a problem at all and the location, right at the heart of Pefkos, is a real winner.
On arrival everyone's rooms were ready, keys were handed out quickly and Joy was on hand outside to direct us to our room.
We;d opted for a one bedroom apartment and were delighted by the size (significantly bigger than comparable rooms we've stayed in elsewhere), facilities in the room (even a hairdryer in the bathroom) and the cleanliness - the rooms were spotless on arrival and kept that way throughout our stay.
We only had breakfast once in the hotel but it was excellent, both the quality of the food and the price.
The only slight disappointment was the on-site supermarket which was very sparsely stocked (although that was understandable, given that the resort was closing down until next Easter at the end of our week's stay) but we remembered the Bakery and Supermarket Tsambikos a little further up Bakery Road; it's a bit of a climb but, as the Supermarket is one of the few businesses that remain open throughout the year it remained very well stocked, the prices are better than most, if not all, in Pefkos and the family running it are very nice. If you can manage the hill give it a try.
We certainly plan to return to Pefkos and the Stella will be right at the top of our list of places to stay.

This was the first time to Rhodes and had a great time. Stellas is wonderfully relaxing and in a prime location in Pefkos near to as many bars and restaurants you could wish for. Apartments themselves are basic and clean and though we stayed in Mid October the airconditioning was still a must.The only problem we had was that we found the beds to be quite hard and talking to other guests they felt the same. Didn't find any problems with overcrowding at the pool although the beach is only 10 mins walk down the road if this is an issue,
Enjoyed ourselves so much that we have already booked to go back in May 2013.

We stayed with our teenage daughter at the Stella for 2 weeks in July. We had a studio apartment with 2 patio doors onto the one balcony, sea in the distance. Basic, but clean and reasonably modern. Had a kitchenette with microwave, 2 hob rings, kettle, toaster, fridge & plenty of pans and utensils. 3 single beds with a wardrobe and dressing & dining table. Bathroom had bath with shower over.

Air conditioning in July (It was hot hot hot) was a must-have although we had to pay extra, well worth the cost. There seemed to be a bit of an issue some days around 6.30pm when the electric went off and the generator kicked in, but alas no air-con with the generator, but came back on within half an hour each time, so not a big problem.

We ate in the hotel for breakfast a few times and for a few snacks and was ok. The swimming pool was a bit crowed some days, but some nice pool bars in Pekfos where you can get a cold drink and use the pool & sunbeds for free. The heat on the beach got a bit much after a few hours so we did this quite abit.

Really liked Pekfos, lots of nice restuarants. We had a car for the 2 weeks and went all over the island, into the mountains, Rhodes town, Lindos, down to the southern tip where the beach was lovely, but really windy.

Recommend the boat trip from Pefkos, 2 hr trip 15e each and stop off for a swim from the boat in Navorone Bay.
