we have just come back from a weeks stay at the Island Blue hotel in Pefkos - last minute deal and worth every penny and more . On early hours arrival we were greeted with a golf buggy and driver to take us to our room , welcome bottle of water in the fridge in a fab room , there were only 2 of us yet we had 2 bedrooms and bathrooms and everything you needed in a kitchen area and rooms. we overlooked the huge pool and despite holidaying with no kids during half term , there were very few to disturb us. The breakfast is in the Elia restaurant and buffet style , our only criticism -constructive of course - is that you were not offered tea and coffee at table and with young children around not ideal - and the 1 coffee machine and hot water on offer meant waiting- our tip would be take your teapot from room with you as we did for the remainder of the week.
maid service was everyday and thorough and Stergos at the pool bar was very good despite being on his own, maintained a great service . Pefkos itself has many restaurants but not enough entertainment but the entertainment offered on site was fab by the girls of 'All that entertainment' and never hassled you by pool but were happy to chat if you wanted. they perform all over island and we also caught one of their shows at the Pefkos by night bar at the end of the strip.
Despite Hellas being the top restaurant as recommended on here, it was ok and very limited wine list, Terpsis is a way better restaurant quite contemporary and steak so tender it was like cutting through butter but nothing can beat the 'Philosophia beach restaurant ' - wonderful staff and owners and food was amazing and the chocolate souffle to die for and had a good choice of wine, we visited and recommended this to many others who all agreed how good it was. we would recommend you book and request a table by the wall for watching the sunset , even when its breezy , they will give you a scarf and nothing is too much trouble.
The beach is slightly disappointing and 2 sunbeds and umbrella 8 euros - we only walked down here as we are more pool people - you can reach main strip of Pefkos by walking along the beach too . We would definitely visit again.
