Reviewed August 12, 2014

We stayed here for a week from July 30th. I have to say that some of the most negative reviews I have read must come from people who cannot be pleased or were unlucky. Finas is a perfectly good hotel from what we saw, run and managed by friendly and helpful people.
The rooms were clean and tidy, there were enough sunbeds by the pool and the restaurant did excellent food.
Quite OK as far as we were concerned, I would say it was accurately as described in the brochures/internet.

The savvy and experienced traveller will know and understand that independent hotels in the whole of Greece can vary greatly. Unless you choose a recognised international brand, hotel can be full of surprises! Fortunately, if you are after a charming, well run small independent hotel / apartment, then I truly recommend the Finas Hotel.
The hotel enjoys a great location in Pefkos, slightly away from the busy main street, but close enough (5 minutes on foot). It has some of the best views over the Pefkos / Lardos bay. The bus stop is conveniently located just over the road (buses to Lindos, Rhodes Town, etc).
The room are basic, yet charming. They are large and comfortable (beds are very comfortable!), clean and functional. The self catering facility is good. Some have the best balconies and views in Pefkos. Make sure you book direct with the hotel, or via Booking.com so that you can reserve the best rooms / views. Olympic Holidays uses the hotel, so if booked on a package holiday with them, especially on a budget package, you may not enjoy a great balcony and view, but that's to be expected. Also, booking direct or independently via a hotel booking site means that air con is included.
I read some unfair (and quite stupid reviews) on TripAdvisor about this hotel - looks like some people have bizarre expectations of a decent but nonetheless budget hotel...if you want mega - luxury, then pay for it!
The Finas has a great pool, with lots of sun-loungers on several terraces, surrounded by botanical gardens. There is also a resident peacock roaming the grounds! The bar and food are very good too. Wi-fi is free in the public areas, although, it has to be said, it is very erratic and quite slow.
The hotel being offered by Olympic Holidays as accommodation for some of their package holidays, 90% of the clientèle is British, and so there is a bit of a "Brits abroad" feeling at time, so not necessarily good for those who prefers a more cosmopolitan and cultured experience.
Staff are responsive and attentive. Special thanks to Fifi, our cleaner, who was very efficient and helpful. The front of house staff was also very good - Anna and Olga. Finally, special thanks to Rachael who manages the place with her family.

Room Tip: Book a floor room with balcony over the Pefkos / Lardos Bay.

Just returned from a 2 week self catering holiday at the finas.
Accommodation is basic but exactly what you need. Rooms were cleand daily by the maids except on their rest day (Sunday's). Rooms are big and spacious. We had a small balcony with a slight pool view and sea view which was great.bathrooms are clean with toilet paper provided ( you don't find that in most Greek places these days )
Pool is lovely and not to cold,although it can get a little busy in there with so many guests. There are lots of sunbeds on three different teers, but if you want the best ones around the pool I'd get down there by 8 or before. Food at the finas is lovely plenty of choice Greek or English and very reasonable in price.I recommend the crepes!!! Rachel and Aris do a great job of running the place.entertainment is available 3 nights a week at the bar, Monday night is karaoke night, Thursday is bingo/quiz and Fridays are various entertainment and a great bbq.but there is always a great Atmosphere every night. If you are lucky enough you will see the resistant peacock, we were lucky he came passed our balcony every night around 6. The hotel is in a great location ,just a 10 min stroll to the town centre,with lots of great bars and restaurants.

First time we stayed in self catering for many years and was pleasantly surprised. Hotel itself very charming and proper greek. Rooms very basic but clean. Only criticism I will make is that we didn't get clean towels every day whilst my dad staying in another room did. think it must depend on the cleaner. Also had to go and complain about why the bin in our bathroom wasn't emptied for 3 days..Again my dad in his room never had a problem. We did go down to reception and they gave us clean towels no problem. Staff in reception were lovely, so helpful and the Bar and restaurant staff equally so. Value for money can't fault it.. 8.90 for 3 course meal and 2.80 for a large beer...Our room had great view of the sea which we requested but didn't pay for so that was a nice bonus. Had a great week and will definitely go back, can't fault the friendliness and value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor as the balcony's are all quite over looked so being higher up gives you bit...

Thanks for your review.

We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us.

Towel changes are only twice per week (standard in 3 star self catering studios). We can only appologise about your bin not being emptied and assume that the cleaner has accidently left it. We appreciate your comments and hope you will come and visit us again soon.

Stayed here because the room we had in another appartment couldn't let us extend,
We paid €50 to have the room.. Went up at 8am the room wasn't ready we didn't get into the room until gone 5pm as we went on a day trip...
The lady at the desk said room was ready well we went through the door to be greeted with cobwebs went to use the loo to find the bathroom bin had not been emptied!! What we found wasn't nice!! Found loads of insets in the room and there was a big gap under the door, so that's where there coming from, went to the bar for a few drinks even the bar was sticky never will we book to stay here looks lovely from the outside but inside a different story in our room!

Thank you for your review.

When you booked the room extension we explained to you that our guests would not be departing their room until 12noon and that the room would be ready shortly after that. When you arrived at 8.30am we explained this once again and you told us you were going out for the day and returning at 5pm, this is the reason you didn't get into the room until 'gone 5pm'.

We are surprised to hear of any cleanliness iossues in your room as the cleaners are spot on and all rooms are pre checked before arrival. We also have no report of this at the reception desk?

Sorry to hear that the bar was 'sticky' but obviously a busy bar can have small intervals of time between cleaning when there might be a little stickyness for a spilt drink.

We will look into your comments.

We just got back from the finas last week and all i can say is what a brilliant week we had. We were gutted to come home and wanted to stay another week. Before we went we said we would try somewhere different to eat every night but we ended up staying at the finas for our meals ue to the kids loving it here so much they didnt want to go anywhere else. The bar area is fab , the food is fresh and lovely (and the owner even picked my starter for me one night saying it was none of my business what i had which my partner and kids thought was hilarious. Then the staryer he chose for me happened to be lovely. On our last day my foot went thro the plastic at the side of the pool and i reported it to Racheal and within 5 minutes it was fixed due to onsight handyman guy. We made lots of friends and the kids did too even the teenagers made some great friends which was brilliant as its normally the toddlers who make the friends. If anyone complains about this place thet need their heads testing. Iv been many many times to greece but can honestly say this was the best. The BBQ ,s were brilliant and karaoke night was a great laugh too. Pool fab and an area for teenagers to hang out away from parents so they can act cool lol. Thanks to all the staff at the finas for a brilliant stay. We even made a name for the girl who clears tables we called her noo noo as shes like a vacuum as soon as u finish with a glass or meal she tidies it up straight away sometimes a little eager . Once again thanks for a brilliant stay we just wish we could have stayed for another week. Definately 2 weeks next year here.

Thank you so much for taking time to write a review. We are delighted that you and all the family had such a lovely time.

I can still remember the kids breakfast order of 'no mushroom or tomatoes with the special breakfast'. Such a lovely family!

It's great to hear that you felt like you wanted to stay around the hotel all of the time.

Aris isn't actually the owner but yes let him choose your dish for you and you will not be disappointed.

We wish you and your family well and look forward to seeing you again next year.

We went to the Finas appartments last year. it was a last minute booking for our family of 4 in an apartment with a double bed and sofa bed.

what can I say, it was very basic but the apartments are located well, 5-10 mins stroll from the beach, a decent size swimming pool and bar.

Don't expect luxury but if you get this on a bargain price its fine because end of day you are in a good location, with decent amenities in reach of everything else in the village. there is a shop at the apartments too.

Room Tip: wifi is available but in reception where signal is strongest.
