Great location and a great hotel. We stayed self catering, as we prefer to eat out, and enjoyed trying all the great restaurants Pefkos has to offer. Although we often ate during the day by the pool bar as this was convenient for a light snack after a large English breakfast at Caprice bar on the strip (great english/irish bar for good brekkie) and was impressed with the value for money and the friendliness of the staff. We were impressed that the Elia restaurant catered late on the Saturday evening for those arriving to the hotel later on, we were informed of this as soon as we checked in, and the free bottle of wine went down well.
All of the staff are willing to help every need and are always polite and smiling. The maids did a great job, and i think the rooms were great and spacious. The beach is lovely and being just a few steps from the room and the pool, its great to be able to go to both on the same day without having to trek a distance. We went to Lindos for an evening dinner at one of the many terraced restaurants and this was a lovely experience, the view over the town and the acropolis. Its a good place to get some nice photos. We tried out the Lindos Ice bar. Although it was empty and fairly expensive, it is a place to get some nice snaps. But after twenty minutes the -6 gets a little too cold to be enjoying a drink! Lindos in the day is also a must. It was manic with tourists and donkeys flying past you on the cobbled streets, but there are plenty of small shops and bars to experience. It's very traditional and a bit of a maze, but really nice. We didn't quite make it all the way to the acropolis as was far too hot, but we are already planning on returning next year, so we can do that then!
Restaurants we enjoyed the most were Enigma, Elia and Terispis, and loved the Rock Bar opposite Pefkos by Night and the Rock Garden at the other end of the strip, closest to the Lindia Thalassa. Both had very friendly staff and played music that we enjoyed. The area caters for all needs and I think all ages of couples would enjoy the area.
I think the hotel is one of the nicest and friendliest I have stayed in, definitely the best experienced in any of the Greek Islands. Pefkos is such a lovely place, where you do not get hassled to eat or drink in any certain bar/restaurant, it's your choice and you never feel pressured. We met many nice people in different bars who have been returning year after year and I think we shall definitely return before too long, and this will most probably be with the Lindia Thalassa.
We had a room directly over the pool, this was fine for us, as we were out in the bars most nights u...
