Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 7, 2011

We have just had two weeks in a spacious apartment in the Island Blue Hotel in Pefkos, it definately met and exceeded all of the excellent reviews. Spotlessly clean and great staff, fabulous views from the Ellia pool and restaurant and within short walking distance of the centre of the resort. We will come back here.

We have just got home from our honeymoon at Island Blue Hotel Pefkos. We had a wonderful time. The whole resort, pool areas, reception and rooms were spotlessly clean. The air conditioning was a must as the temperature was reaching 40 + degrees !!!!The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was buffet style with plenty of choice, well presented and cooked well. The beach is very narrowI ! Island Blue is the better of the several hotels that make up the resort village. I would definately go back to Island Blue and would recommend it to anyone.

Family of 2 adults & 2 children 12 & 8 stayed at the hotel on the 16th of July for 1 week booked through Holiday Nights a real bargain and had a very relaxing week staying in a fantastic 2 room apartment with 2 bathrooms.
On arrival at the reception we were invited to a free drink in the bar arriving via buggy whilst our cases were delivered to our room a blessing in 40 degrees heat.
Our room on the ground floor overlooked the pool so was like having our own villa as we were a simple jump over a wall to get to our sun beds and were grateful of this as the temperature was regularly hitting 40 deg + so was good to spend time on the balcony out of the sun.
Inside the room we had a simple kitchen which we didn't really use as we either ate out or made some sandwiches and a LCD flat screen TV which was great for connecting up to the
laptop to watch movies.
Also one morning without prompt the cleaning lady delivered a bottle of wine as somehow they had realised it was our daughters 12th birthday a great gesture and very much appreciated.
Out of the Hotel we loved Lindos a really unique place with great shops & restuarants, the Symi Island boat trip, Falaraki water park and we met a real character a sort of Greek Del Boy at Lindos car rental who seemed to own half of the Island as through hiring a car we received free drinks at his restaurants in Pekfos and Lindos and also offered us a further days car hire for free !!!
We would definitely go back but probably outside of peak seaon as the weather was a little to hot for us.

Just got back from two weeks at the Island Blue and had a brilliant time. Rooms are lovely really big and the best thing was the walk in shower which is bigger than the shower I have at home! Pools were lovely we tended to use the roof top pool as it was quieter. Didnt use the other complex pools you have to be up quiet early to get a sunbed as one morning I woke early and sat on the balcony and saw one family reserving sunbeds at 6am!!!
The breakfasts were also really nice I didnt eat the cooked selection but enjoyed the fresh crosiants, fruit and yogurt. The hotel is ideally situated quiet but within easy walking distance of the main strip. The best restaurants are Spitaki garden and Enigma and the best bar we found was Pano de Capo which was situated underneath enigma.The staff were also very friendly can't really fault the hotel really wouldn't hesitate in going back!!

Three of us spend a wonderful week at the Island Blue Hotel, it was great from our arrival where we were greeted with a drink and a warm welcome and very quick check in. We had a two bed roomed apartment which was excellent, very good air conditioning which was individually controlled, and all amenities you could wish for. Everywhere was clean and kept that way by our maid who attended daily. The complex had a few different pools but we spent a lot of time at the one near the restaurant, which had huge comfy beds and was quiet - the other pools were more suited to families and had more going on with the animation team.
The beach, which was accessed through the complex, was very narrow but the sea was lovely and warm. We couldnt have wished for better weather all of the time,
It was situated in an ideal location, lots of bars, lovely restaurants and small shops and supermarkets, all within easy walking distance. The hotel restaurant `Eli`s` was a la carte and was exceptionally good, We could have stayed much longer to go to all the lovely nearbye places.
We will certainly go back, the sooner the better for me - Just enjoy!

From the moment we arrived at the hotel,the reception staff were quick and pleasant and then was whisked to our room by the lovely Mike in a golf buggy(at 2200 o' clock),to the lovely clean rooms with a swimming pool balcony and then in the morning meeting our lovely cleaning lady Irena who made an effort to get to know all our parties names(10 people in 4 rooms) with a smile,to Styrgos who worked in the resturant at breakfast in the morning then our pool bar till 1900 + and was always nice and helpfull, to all the amazing staff who worked for long hours with a smile a BIG THANK YOU.they were incredible.
Now to the hotel,at the Elle resturant the breakfast buffet was always plentyfull and varied with a good mixture of english and continental,the evening food was incredible.
The hotel complex was always spotless-the pool and areas cleaned every morning.
Only a short 5 minute walk to a clean beach with crystal clear waters.
The Pefkos strip itself can do with a little modernising but there are plenty of great resturants(dont be scared to try the smaller tavernas down towards the beaches off the main strip),it is not a lively place(like faliraki or ayia napa) but does have small family friendly cocktail bars that have to turn the music down at 0100 but remain open till the last one leaves,also a bar/club at the far end of the strip called the eclipse which has everything for eveyone,pool tables- swimming pool with a (safe) cliffrock jump(which has a lifeguard up top as we were jumping off 1oclock in the morning fully clothed).to a nightclub that is soundproofed that goes on till early morning,this place is great and you could spend all day there>> .
We didnt see one airplane for all two weeks(benefits of the 50 minute coach from airport),and we only spotted one small cloud as well.
You must try the trips out ,(Rhodes town is amazing) but the trip to the island of Symi is a must as it is incredible.
Sorry to go on but we could have typed for ever about this beautifull part of Rhodes..

Room Tip: We had rooms 161/162/and 163, which were on the lower floor(only two floors) with pool side balconi...
