“Fab relaxing break.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

We booked quite last minute with Thomson and travelled 3- 10 oct. we had a fantastic week and would not hesitate to return. The complex is beautiful and so clean an tidy. We had a studio overlooking the pool and the balcony was lovely to sit and watch the sunset. Room was very clean with everything could want- beds were very hard but that is personal preference. Short walk to great restaurants and supermarkets. Had wonderful meals everyday. The beach was very close and water beautiful. Weather was great to so all in all a great holiday hope to return with the rest of the family soon.

We were transfered here 20/10 to 27/10 2012 because our Pefki village resort closed before we arrived, the complex was so quiet, it was managed fantastically the grounds were out of this world, and we would go back but not in the height of the season, BECAUSE we were not told that it is actually linked to 2 other complexes as big as itself, poss with 800 or so rooms in total, Thomson do not give any indication of this in any of the individual descriptions, which is fine if you like big 5 pool places but we don't and were not told of this as we chose our alternative accomodation.
The Lindia Thalassa was the quietest and nearest to the beach which is the sandiest we have ever visited in Greece ,the complex is owned by Ioannidis group of hotels.

Dear Guests
Many thanks for taking the time to write your great review of your recent stay with us here at Pefki Islands. I am glad that you had a great holiday here in Pefkos.
October in deed is one of the quietest months especially towards the end of the month and so perfect if you don't like the height of the summer when it is very busy. The 3 hotels are all indeed separate hotels but guests may use the facilities of each if they wish. Each hotel is different and has different options to offer guests from quieter pools, to more family orientated pools etc.
We hope to be able to welcome you back to the hotel in the near future for another great stay with us.

We stayed 10 nights mid-late oct in a 2 bed apartment with our 7 month old baby. Reception staff are very friendly, welcoming and catered for our every needs throughout our stay. The rooms were clean, modern and huge with plenty of space and more for our crawling baby. Maid service was excellent and cannot be faulted. Only downside is air con is very expensive at 90e for 10 days-very over priced compared to other greek complexes. The complex was very quiet with both Pefki islands pool bars shutting and the pool areas very very quiet (in fact one of them did become our own private pool!). We were able to use Island Blues lovely pool area but there was no shaded areas for our baby to play so we chose not too. Even though the resort was coming to a close, we enjoyed lovely meals out every night. Our favourites and recommendations are Nicholas (up the hill), Spitaki (on the main strip), Philosophia (on the beach for the best sunset views). The waterpark had shut and the glass boat trip had stopped within a couple of days of us arriving so we missed out on those. We hired a car from GAM (the 1st hire company on the right on the main road) for a very cheap 50e for 3 days. Overall, an excellent, family friendly complex and resort; one of our best ever holidays. If you enjoy the busy hustle and bustle you wont find it here in October, instead it was very relaxing and calm. Thank you Pefki Island for a great stay.

We stayed at the pefki Islands Resort from the 7th October for 11 nights, we holidayed as a couple with no children so you have to bear in mind that a review with chidren in the peak season may be different. The Pefki Isalands resort is made up of the Lydia Thalassia Hotel, the Island Blu hotel and the Pefki Islands accomodation, guests staying in one have access to all three, although the Islands Blue Pool asks guest to give priority to sunbeds to guests staying at the Island Blu (which is reasonable). The reviews do warn of the price of the air conditioning, despite going in October, we didn't think we would need it, but we had a heatwave an temp hit 35 deg,!!!! so we paid to have it, whilst I agree it is expensive, we had a two bedroomed apartment but only had to pay for the air con in one room, I can see how it would make a hole in the family holiday budget, especially if you had to pay for both rooms, we were charged 90e for it for the 11 nights, had we of had it in the other bedroom I suspect it would have been double, the safe was approx 30e, however we had read the reviews and knew about the cost for it. That said you could not fault anything about the complex, it didn't feel like a complex, there are 4 wonderful clean pools with pool bars (2 of them swim up) plenty of sunbeds and no towel reserved ones, there were no rules about no inflatables, as anyone with kids knows that it has to be done!!!! There is also an additional adults only pool although anybody reading this will have to take into account we went in october the resort was not even 25% occupied. The two bedroomed apartment we had was without a doubt he most spacious and well thought out accomodation we have ever had, Anywhere, our bedroom was HUGE, decent wardrobes and a dressing table unit with overhead lights and a plug socket by a mirror for ladies and our hairdryers!!!, a well stocked mini kitchen, with table and chairs, the usual two hob, fridge ect, but it also had thoughtful things like toaster and sandwich maker!!! We made tea and coffee!!!! BUT if you wanted to self cater you could easily, they even provided clean tea towels, we had TWO small bathrooms (one en suite for each bedroom) each had a small walk in shower that was heaven, not a trickle of water, a proper hot shower, the accomodation was spotless, A large balcony with a dryer unit on to hang swimwear and towels, the lovely ladies that kept it like that were friendly and helpful, clean fluffy white towels and decent beds, no the beds were not home but we have had a lot worse, sheets changed on what seemed twice a week, towels every other day. There was a supermarket on site that was open until 7am until 11.30pm at the Lydia Thalassia resort and the main entertainment (difficult to comment as it was so out of season) was held there as well. The safe sheltered sandy beach was through the resort and down 66 stone steps, not sure how a family with small children and buggy's would cope as it was 66 steps up to get back to have a drink,!!! That said children mostly like the pools so problem solved, the beach was very safe and although narrow would allow families to keep careful watch on children, the sea was crystal clear and very gradual sloping so again perfect for kids. 2 sunbeds and a brolly 8e. We loved the small cove, go through the complex down the steps onto the beach and turn left, walk to the end of the beach and then get in the sea!!!! Yes we waded through the clear sandy sea carrying the usual beach garb high as to not get wet, it only came up to top of thigh level, you can see the cove your heading to, 30 sunbeds same price and the wonderful Kavos Taverna at the top of the beach, great food or drinks or both, we used to get an iced coffe frappe and take it to the sunbed, the cove is wonderful and worth the short wade. Its got a small rock pool that two small boats used to be in so plenty of small fish hiding. The complex had a resturant "Elini" at the top going towards the main road, the people who had bed and breakfast or half board ate there, but the resturant also has al a carte, the food for the catered guests was buffet, there were a lot of weddings, but they have a top floor so it was lovely to watch, also the weekly Greek night was held there, 16e per person and the food wasn't as bad as I feared, a lot of queing though, but they had a fab team of waiters and waitress to get drinks (not included). The Pefki Islands resort was outstanding accomodation with great facilities , the hardworking staff there were friendly and wanted you to enjoy your stay, they even provided iced water and juice (free of charge) in reception on going home days so that guests waiting for their transfers could help themselves. The resort of Pefkos was lovely to, too many resturants to name but everyone has their favorite, in our opinion if a full english breakfast is your thing, you would'nt beat the Rock Cafe, out of the resort onto the main road turn left into town and its the first bar / resturant you come to, two eggs, two bacon, two sausages, mushrooms, tomatoes, beans two toast, juice or tea or coffee all freshly cooked to order 6e, again like all the bars a childrens play section, we used to go there for a drink on the walk back after an evening meal, lovely!!! With a huge BYE BYE shouted at you as you left!!!!!! We didn't go on a trip, went into Lindos (got a cab from the junction) 8e, went on a donkey to the Acroplis!!! Aslo did the glass bottom 2 hour boat trip, you will see it advertised as you walk about, the captain is a character and it was two hours well spent and much enjoyed. We would like to say THANK YOU Pefki Islands Resort as we had a wonderful time and thank you to magical Pefkos, will we return?, well we are waiting for the flights to load as we speak

Room Tip: the cats there are fine but if your not a lover of them go for a higher floor

My husband and I stayed at Pefki Island resort for a week 26th Sept - 3rd Oct and all I can say is that we had a fantasic time!! The weather was red hot, pools lovely and clean and plenty of sunbeds. Had a walk down the beach and this looked very nice too. As many people have stated the cost of air conditioning and the safe was a bit over the top but I expected this from comments I read on here and to be fair we got a good deal on the holiday so wasn't that fussed.

Our apartment was great, they are big and spacious, kept spotlessly clean with fresh towels everyday (except Sun, everyone needs a day off lol). I e-mailed the hotel the week before we arrived to request a high level pool view room and they acknowledged my request. Although our apartment was self-catering we never cooked anything in our room, we were on holiday so no way we were cooking!! Most days we ate at the pool bar and the food was spot on and reasonably priced, on days we never we just got a sarnie from the shop to put us on which was ideal and as cheap as chips. Never ate at the Elia restaurant but many people said it was lovely.

The hotel staff were all very pleasent and helpful and I mean all if them! The lady who cleaned our room was so pleasant and cheerful, never a day without a smile and a good morning, etc!!

The best place to eat is Nostalgia, the environment, food and service was first class. We also tried the Chinese and the Chinese/Indian and they were also very good. It was nice to walk down the street and look at the menus without people trying to get you into their restaurant/bar.

Pefkos by night good for night time entertainment, always made very welcome. Rock bar and Jasmine Bar also very good. Sport on in all the bars and even some restaurants.

Pefkos wasn't very busy when we were there but this suited us as we just wanted a nice and chilled out holiday, relax through the day and lesiurely evenings and thats exactly what we got.

We never done any trips as the days went in too fast and enjoyed just sunbathing by the pool, next time we will go for longer and visit Lindos, Rhodes Old town etc but this time we enjoyed chilling.

This was our first time in Pefkos and it won't be our last and would definitley recommend Pefkos and Pefki Islands resort.

Room Tip: E-mail and request a high level pool room.

We only stayed for a week, but I found the resort very good in most aspects, spotless large rooms, in a resort that is obviously well maintained, is not always the norm in Greece, here it is. A very good main restaurant, and a good selection of bars thoughout the resort. The pools were all clean with ample sunbeds and superb facilities. The nearby beach was my preference, with warm shallow water and clean sandy shores, beaches have many sunbeds and a few waterside restaurants and bars.
The only downside of the resort as far as I was concerned, have been mentioned by people before, I felt the Air con and Safety deposite costs were excessive, and football games shown on the pool bar TV's excessively load, (although to be fair this was for only a couple of games). My only other comment is the lack of a free access WiFi spot which I feel could have been provided in reception, maybe the management could look into this.
The Sunset Lounge although not part of the resort, is whole hartedly recomended.
We could't find a restaurant in the town that we didn't get good service, or good food in.
Generally we had an Excellent stay at the resort and would return.

We are staying in pefki island resort as I write this in room 325 and all I can say is roll on may 2013 as we will be booking up to come back! The apartment is spotless and cleaned every day aswell as the complex itself its in a great location with a beautiful beach just yards away. The staff are superb and friendly and can't do enough for you :) if there is one thing which needs be done and I mean its the only thing for this excellent complex is pls pls pls change all the mattresses on the beds as I've not had one good nights sleep and my back neck and shoulders are killing me! But its still not enough to put me off coming back :) might just bring a air bed with me lol all in all well done Thomson and well done to all the staff and thank you for a great holiday :) ps its October and its been sunshine every day !
