My husband and I have recently returned from a 2 week stay at Island Blue, Pefkos. We chose Island Blue as it looked like the perfect place to spend our wedding/honeymoon. We were not dissappointed...from the moment we arrived we knew that we had made the right decision. We were taken to our room by golf buggy which was a pleasant surprise, it also meant no lugging suitcases round the complex...the golf buggy would feature again later in our stay! Our room was modern, spacious and clean (a lovely space to get ready on my special day), there was a tv and full size fridge (with a complimentary bottle of water) the bathroom was a good size and had a brilliant shower...and a hairdryer (always a plus...less weight in the suitcase), the towels were changed every day and the bedding every other if required, there were also extra blankets if you wanted them. Air con was also included which was a welcome addition. We were on the groundfloor which had a large terrace area with a table and chairs and a clothes airer. We stayed on a B&B basis and there was plenty of choice on the breakfast buffet, something for everyone.The grounds and pool areas were kept immaculate and again there was something for everyone with a choice of the quieter adults pool or the livelier 'kostas' pool bar if you fancied a bit more fun. The purpose of our trip to Rhodes was our wedding at St Pauls Bay, Lindos (which incidently was amazing!). We held our wedding reception at 'Elia' Restaurant and could not have wished for anything more perfect. The room and table were decorated beautifully, so much care, time and effort had been put into it so special thanks to Louise and Pia who were responsible for making it so perfect. The food was out of this world, the quantity and quality was excellent and it was extremely good value for money and this was the case with all the food produced at 'Elia'. The staff were very attentive and this was not solely exclusive to our wedding reception. Every member of the team at Island Blue is helpful, polite, cheerful and accommodating, nothing ever seems to be too much trouble for them. I would especially like to mention Louise who is Guest relations at the hotel. She is thoughtful, kind and caring and added so many extra little touches (which she did not have to do) that made our wedding day so special...like decorating the golf buggy which drove us around to get some stunning photographs. So if anybody is thinking of getting married in Rhodes or looking for somewhere to hold their reception I strongly recommend they speak to Louise. I know this is not a wedding review site but I just wanted to emphasise how wonderful the staff at Island Blue really are. The hotel is well situated with only a short walk to the beach and resort centre. We have never stayed anywhere that has such a vast amount of excellent restaurants, too many to name but a couple of our favourites were Nostalgia, Philosophia (beautiful food and sunsets) and Kavos Taverna for a lunchtime salad and cold Mythos!! All in all our trip to Rhodes/Island Blue was wonderful and it was the perfect setting for our wedding celebrations. We certainly did not want to leave and we definately want to return...hopefully for our 1st anniversary.
