Babis Studios
Ranked #23 of 26 Specialty Lodging in Pefkos
Reviewed September 10, 2012

If you want a totally relaxing holiday in the quiet part of town with excellent tavernas and a beautiful beach nearby, choose Babis. This was our fourth time here and yet again we couldn't fault it. We had an upper floor appartment facing onto the pool area with stunning views across the bay to Lardos. We enjoyed watching the sunset from here each evening. The complex is beautiful and clean. The pool/pool bar area is fantastic and is looked after by the lovely Carol during the day and the wonderful Valantis, the owner, on an evening. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they, along with Georgia who does the housekeeping make Babis an even more special to stay.They are so friendly and helpful. Carol serves delicious food and I can highly recommend her Gyros pitta; and you have got to try Valantis' cocktails :)

Take no notice of the comment below about the rooms. I have been in all of the appartments at one time or another and can honestly say that they are all spotless,well equipped and have everything you would need. Anyone who spends their time in Greece just staying in their room needs to get a life. In my opinion rooms in Greece are for sleeping in and getting a shower
- nothing more.

Babis is situated in a quiet part of Pefkos, about a 15 min walk from the centre where the majority of the bars and eating places are. But that is why I personally love it. Pefkos has a real buzz to it, but I don't want that all the time. I want to spend my time chilling out by the pool, and wandering to the bar to get some delicious food during the day. While we were there this time we alternated our evenings by walking into the centre of Pefkos every other night to eat/drink and going to the local tavernas (Kavos, Eleni, Anixis, Nicolas) the next night. It depends on what you want from your holiday. If you like to be at the centre of everything then fine, but be prepared for very noisy evenings in the accommodation in the centre of Pefkos. If, like us you prefer peace and quiet and chilling out then choose Babis.
Pefkos main beach is also 15 - 20 mins walk from Babis, but there is a quieter and nicer beach (imo) near to Kavos taverna. There are a couple of supermarkets nearby to Babis and the people who own Eleni supermarket and taverna are lovely and friendly.
If you don't like walking or have difficulty in walking then you can always use a taxi to get into the centre of town. But if like us you like walking, then the walk along to the centre of Pefkos is nice and you get to see some lovely views. There is a bit of a climb up onto the main road, but anyone who is of average health and above shouldn't find it a problem.
I am a complete snob when it comes to holiday accommodation. I have dragged my poor husband away from many hotels etc that haven't come up to my standards, so trust me when I say that for me staying in Babis is like going home!

just returned from babis and honestly cant say enough nice things about it ! the babis is so nice and clean and very peaceful just perfect for couples and familys, pool is cleaned every night and rooms are cleaned every day by georgia who is a lovely lady and always has time for a chat and a laugh with you, we have been to several greek islands and have never had clean towels every day but we did here ! carol who runs the bar and cooks snacks throughout the day is also lovely and will do anything she can to help you ( her english breakfast & ham salad rolls are beautiful ) valantis the owner is a very nice man who will sit and chat with you all night ( his wife is so nice 2 ) our room was just perfect large and clean and we couldnt have asked for better, its about 20 min walk into town but if you just walk at the "greek pace" its a nice walk, there are shops, bars & tavernas within 2 mins walk from the babis so you dont have to go into town if you dont want to, kavos beach is 5 min walk but you have to get there early as there are only 20 parasols with 2 loungers to each ( 8 euros all day ) it is a nice quiet beach & great for snorkling the fish are brilliant (take some bread into the sea to feed them & they will be all around you ) further down is a larger beach with pleny of loungers, just at the back of the babis is the ex pink floyd villa, worth taking a look at ! we had a day out in lindos you can either take the bus or a taxi ( taxi fare is 10 euros each way ) lindos is lovely small cobbled streets full of shops a very cool ( rhodes was having a heatwave while we were there 45 to 50 degrees every day ) the donkey taxi up to the acropolis was such a laugh ( try it ) its costs 5 euros each way although we didnt get one back down, it is 6 euros to enter the acropolis, well worth a visit ! we never go back to the same hotel but will definatly be going back to the babis, a big thankyou to valantis, carol & georgia also all the lovely friends we made for making our holiday such a pleasure and so lovely.

Room Tip: its such a small hotel all rooms would be perfect.

Booked with Thomas cook, reviews of the apartments I had read were all good so I am sure the 2 bed apartments were absolutely fine, it should be said that the studios at the back of the complex were under pool level with a view of feet ankles and low view of sunloungers, had to be on tip toe to look out of the 2 narrow widows, there was a solid wood door so it was very dingy and if you had the door open there was a communal area outside with the table & chairs of the adjoining studios all on the doorstep so no privacy. Did ask to be moved next morning & was told by Sue who ran the bar there were no Apartments upstairs for at least a week, the rep told us we were going to be moved but for some reason we had to see the owner at 9pm that night, we went & found other accommodation, as I say the larger apts were probably good, Babis quite a way from the main resort centre maybe a 20/25 min walk but peaceful location

Room Tip: book upstairs apartments, studios at the back semi basement / claustrophobic
