We stayed here for 11 nights and were very impressed overall with the Pefki Islands resort and its 'sister hotels' - Island Blue and Lindia Thalassa. Our apartment was well away from the hustle and bustle of the pools. The room was very clean, modern, and well furnished - maid service was excellent. I agree with previous reviewers about the high cost of air conditioning - we paid 100 Euros for 11 nights, although I did email them beforehand so I knew how much it would be and budgeted accordingly. (At this time of year air con is a necessity so it's a case of pay up or spend a lot of sleepless nights!) The grounds were very well kept as were all the buildings, everything was so clean and gave the appearance of being well looked after. All staff we encountered were friendly. Very convenient location, only a 10 minute walk to the main street with shops, bars and restaurants. Less than 10 minute walk to the beautiful beach. On site supermarket was very well stocked. The Elia restaurant within the complex serves beautiful lunches and evening meals. The Greek night there was also excellent. There are five swimming pools within the complex, all of them with slightly different atmospheres. We preferred the quiet pool adjacent to the Elia restaurant. This pool was not really suitable for children as there was no shallow end. We never arrived early enough at the pool to get a sunbed so we sat on the terrace at the dining tables which we preferred anyway as there was more shade. Just one gripe - every day we noticed that all of the 30 or so sunbeds had a towel on, but most of the time there was only a handful of people actually present. (Why do people leave towels on sunbeds from early morning and then not bother turning up until late in the day?) I must mention the Philosophia restaurant 5 minutes down the road towards the beach - this is lovely, the food is scrumptious and there are amazing views over the sea especially at sunset. All in all I would highly recommend Pefki Islands Resort. We spoke to several people who return there year after year. I would certainly love to go back.
