“great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2009

We booked a late deal and was very happy with the rooms, yes they are basic but you only sleep in them so what more do you need, the staff were very helpful and friendly. The slope up to the apartments was steep and would not be good for people with walking difficulties, but it certainly kept you fit. The nearby supermarket sold all the things you needed and the restaurants were very good all in all we are very glad we stayed there and would recommend these studios.

Just back from Karpathios Studios. Having read earlier reviews we were a bit dubious. There are two large white blocks all with sea facing views and balconies varying in size. There are also eight rooms located under the swimming pool sundeck and eight rooms under one of the white blocks. These looked very cramped and had no private balcony. The location here is good and ALL studios look out over Pefkos and the sea. From our balcony we had stunning 180 degree view over Pefkos town and the sea. The location is good - 2 minutes to nearest supermarket and about 7 minutes to the beaches. The studios have a very steep concrete slope and steps- exhausting in the heat. Studio was very basic - we had one wardrobe, table and chair. No drawers or anywhere for storage. No cupboards in `kitchen`area, only storage was under sink. Basic utensiles. Lots of ants were coming into studio but did not pose a real problem. Shower room old and needed updating, cracked toilet seat. No hot water in mornings as all heated on solar panels. Air con was expensive about 35 euro a week. We took our own fans. Very basic conditions but this is Greece and we were on a cheap late deal so happy but if we had paid full price would have complained at standard. On the plus side staff were very friendly, towels and bedding changed regularly and floors cleaned. Lovely pool, plenty of sunbeds and good pool bar. probably would stay again if rooms were updated slightly. The road outside is generally quiet. Pefkos is a lovely quite resort with good beaches, plenty of restaurants, mini markets, bars etc. Good bus service to Lindos 1.50euro, Rhodes town 5 euros (60 km journey)
