We stayed in this hotel in early October of this year.
When we arrived we were greeted very friendly staff at reception who helped us with our bags to our room. The room was huge and we had a good view over the pool out to sea. It had all the usual facilities you would expect.
The hotel is part of a bigger complex which comprises two other hotels. You can use the facilities at the other hotels but we stayed at the Island Blue most of the time. The swimming pool is large and there were plenty of sun beds, although some people still seemed to insist on marking the sun beds with towels and I don't even think they were German.
The only criticism of the pool is that it was freezing cold; if you are planning some form of polar swim the pool could be handy for training. Once the sensation in your body has faded you get used to the cool waters and frostbite isn't too bad, and it's not as if you need five fingers on each hand anyway.
The bars at the hotel and by the pool were fine and seemed similarly priced to others in the town. We didn't try the restaurant so I can’t really comment on that.
Overall I think the hotel is fantastic value for money and you get a lot. I would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of going to Pefkos.
