“Excellent beat in Greece !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

Having travelled to most of the Greek Island this new complex Island Blue is a Diamond in the complex shared with Pefki island and Lindi Thilassa. Island Blue is a more upmarket set of apartments rooms are more spacious and better equipped the complex has a beautiful chapel for weddings and receptions can be held at the Elia Restaurant. We have been coming to this complex for 5 years and cannot fault the staff and the food the people here take you to their hearts it's a pleasure to come back and see them xx

I have never written a review before but for this hotel I just had too.Just got back from here,and the overall experience was faultless. Location,standard of rooms ,service,breakfast and the cleanliness of hotel is fantastic. It exceeded my expectations which is hard to do ! We also got married on the Veranda and Louise and her team did a fantastic job and also Laura from Thomson weddings did a brilliant job and the food at Elia restaurant for our reception was amazing, the roof top terrace was a perfect setting for a memorable day. We will return and I would recommend this hotel to all ages, and also if you wished to get married to . Also having the other two properties so close was great for family and friends .

we have just come back from a weeks stay at the Island Blue hotel in Pefkos - last minute deal and worth every penny and more . On early hours arrival we were greeted with a golf buggy and driver to take us to our room , welcome bottle of water in the fridge in a fab room , there were only 2 of us yet we had 2 bedrooms and bathrooms and everything you needed in a kitchen area and rooms. we overlooked the huge pool and despite holidaying with no kids during half term , there were very few to disturb us. The breakfast is in the Elia restaurant and buffet style , our only criticism -constructive of course - is that you were not offered tea and coffee at table and with young children around not ideal - and the 1 coffee machine and hot water on offer meant waiting- our tip would be take your teapot from room with you as we did for the remainder of the week.
maid service was everyday and thorough and Stergos at the pool bar was very good despite being on his own, maintained a great service . Pefkos itself has many restaurants but not enough entertainment but the entertainment offered on site was fab by the girls of 'All that entertainment' and never hassled you by pool but were happy to chat if you wanted. they perform all over island and we also caught one of their shows at the Pefkos by night bar at the end of the strip.
Despite Hellas being the top restaurant as recommended on here, it was ok and very limited wine list, Terpsis is a way better restaurant quite contemporary and steak so tender it was like cutting through butter but nothing can beat the 'Philosophia beach restaurant ' - wonderful staff and owners and food was amazing and the chocolate souffle to die for and had a good choice of wine, we visited and recommended this to many others who all agreed how good it was. we would recommend you book and request a table by the wall for watching the sunset , even when its breezy , they will give you a scarf and nothing is too much trouble.
The beach is slightly disappointing and 2 sunbeds and umbrella 8 euros - we only walked down here as we are more pool people - you can reach main strip of Pefkos by walking along the beach too . We would definitely visit again.

Stayed at the island blue for 2 weeks b+b for our wedding at St. Paul's bay. The hotel itself is huge with three complexs all sharing the land, very open and pretty. And just down some steps to the beach. Our room was huge and modern, lots of wardrobe space and mirrors. Free aircon, full size iron and ironing board. Best shower Iv ever used abroad! Balcony is huge too with a stunning veiw over looking the pool and on site chapel. Maids were fantastic room was always spotless even if we wanted a lie in one day and used the do not disturb sign they would come back later and do the room. The breakfast was great, loads of variety and always fresh. We only used the island blue pools but there are 5 in total on the complex. The bar man at island blue pool bar was fantastic and
really put in some hours! On our wedding day the hotel went above and beyond to make us feel special even though we wernt having our wedding there. They even brought us breakfast in bed the day after the wedding which was a small feast! Really can't praise the staff enough and will defiantly be heading back soon!

Stayed at the island blue in Pefkos for 2 weeks bed and breakfast. .
. It was our first trip to Greece. We had a fantastic time. The hotel is very clean, rooms very modern, big and cleaned everyday. All rooms overlook the pools. Breakfast had a good range of different things to eat. The staff could not do enough for you, very friendly and pleasant. Would recommend this hotel to family and friends.. It was a little bit quite in Pefkos due to it been the beginning of May. We hired a car for 3 days. We drove round the island. Rhodes town is well worth a visit. We went to some very nice eating places in Pefkos on the main road. Artemis is a lovely place to eat on a night and the staff were excellent. The Ella restaurant at the island blue is very nice to eat on a night.

My Boyfriend and I stayed at the sister hotel Peki Island Resort last year for a week in July. We were really impressed with how modern the complex is. Our room was lovely, very clean and the best shower I have ever used in Greece! We had a lovely view looking over the pool and facilities to cook our own food if we wished.
Prior to our visit I contacted the hotel due to suffering from Coeliac Disease which requires me to have a gluten free diet. The hotel where very well-organized with great customer service! Gluten free bread and cereal was provided as we had also booked for bed and breakfast. This really made a difference to my holiday. The hotel staff cannot do enough for you and are very welcoming, each morning at breakfast we were greeted and in the evening.
The beach is only a short distance away (5mins) where we spent each day soaking up the sun. The atmosphere at the complex was great! A couple we spoke to had been visiting the complex for years which speaks volumes about how nice the place is.
So this year we are coming back and staying at the Island Blue Hotel but I have bought the whole family this time! We are thoroughly looking forward to our holiday in the next coming weeks!

I cannot praise this place enough it was the prefect holiday!

We were at Island Blue for 1 week earlier this month. The hotel is modern, clean, quiet and bright. Our room was large, air con included, very modern and a large balcony. All rooms look onto the pool. Good range of food at breakfast, evening menu was very nice. Staff pleasant, polite and helpful. Pefkos is small but with some really nice restaurants - would recommend Dama Dama for amazing food and great hospitality. We went to the Greek night at the hotel where the food was very nice, Greek dancing and lots of fun. Really enjoyed the holiday.
