We arrived early on a Sunday (1am) and were greeted by friendly staff who checked us in very quickly and showed us to our room. It was clear at this point that the staff are very welcoming and they proved throughout our stay that they are willing to do anything you require to make your stay feel more comfortable.
The hotel is a long walk from the Pefkos centre and is recommended a taxi / rental car is used. The staff on reception are able to order one and they must have gotten sick of doing this for us haha! Taxi is approx 6€ which can add up otherwise it is a lenghtly walk.
The rooms are very clean and are cleaned daily (except Sundays which is understandable). We had a small ant army march from the balcony to our bathroom but the maid saw this and bug sprayed them and mopped them up. It's a common problem in Rhodes but they know how to sort the problem!
The pool area is quiet and friendly with a food counter which makes most English foods aswell as selling a variety of drinks. Yannis there is very friendly and can make you what you would like. Alcohol is also sold here so am not sure how previous reviewers missed this and said there was no bar.
The hotel has free wifi by the pool area and has tv's by the pool and inside, aswell as Internet access on computers. It provides evening drinks also and has a bar inside. We were never there at night so did not know too much but everyone looked happy there when we got back around 1am.
There is a shop across from reception which sells drinks, food, bathroom essentials.
All in all - a nice hotel in which an English speaking receptionist makes things so much easier.
I am normally quote fussy and am struggling to think of any pernickety bits which would have been in the hotels control! The location from Pefkos is the only thing which I can't really fault anyone over!
One thing I will say about Pefkos is that the taxi drivers can be quite rude and aren't very knowledgable about even local bars or restaurants. They do expect you to know the way there which defeats the object of a holiday. It's just a case of hoping you get a knowledgable driver!
