“Best We've Stayed At In Greece”
Reviewed July 9, 2011

Best hotel we've stayed at in Greece (bearing in mind this is Greece and we dont do cacooned 5 star luxury, usually) - v comfortable - though some may find the beds a bit hard - with good facilities, attractive grounds, great view if you have a high room (reached half-way by a funicular railway type lift) - reckon room 123 may have the best. Room even had plenty of storage space - a first for us in Greece. Reception staff v good and friendly and good for a chat on your way through - esp Ray and Andy. Good breakfast. Good bars. Supposedly good restaurant, though we didn't eat there as we prefer more authentic Greek. Pools - 2 adult, 1 jacuzzi style, 1 kids - v clean indeed as were the surrounds and all the hotel in fact. Poss best location in resort - about a central to everything as you can get. Only 2 snags - a) lots of steps, some of which reflect sun almost blindingly; b) the pool areas are sun traps and totally shielded from any breeze - in the height of summer this can result in too overwhelming heat for many people who depart for other pool bars / beach nearby.
One often amusing unintentional feature of the hotel is that half way between the 2 pool areas seems to lie the boundary between the territories of the 2 otherwise friendly to humans hotel cats, which can result in awful slanging matches and boundary disputes !!
Would certainly pay a return visit

We stayed here for four days recently had had a very nice experience. Well kept, reasonably priced room and food, good location, great staff...everything you could want. The only drawback for us (and this is no fault of the hotel as this is clearly the market they are targeting) is that the whole of Pefkos Beach area is very very oriented to the British traveler. This is not itself any problem it was just a little surprising given that we were in Greece. All the facilities in the area are there to cater to english-speaking guests. In fact, we had to drive many kilometers and really work hard to find real Greek restaurants (to be honest almost all of Rhodos is like this)

We have been many many times to the Greek Islands so it was no big deal, but those who are not expecting it may be a bit disappointed. If you want the comfort of some familiarity in the area in terms of signage, food, stores, etc. then this would be a wonderful place to stay.

Room Tip: Buildings 6 and 5 are closer to the bar area and maybe slightly louder than the other buildings

just arrived back from a week at this hotel. We were in room109 right at the top, a studio/apartment for 4 which would not be greatest location for a family with small children but was very spacious for 2 adults and wqould be fin if you had older kids , Bathroom (huge) has a full size bath & a notice asking you to shower!!! Hotel has loooaaaads of steps so it helps you keep fit. Only eat here for breakfast , scambled aggs were amazing.

As other people have said the staff are all very friendly even whan we arrived at 3am. Would def go back

Been here for the last 4 years with our teenage daughter.After the first year she wouldnt let us go anywhere else and we didnt argue. Although we never thought of ourselves as "serial returners" everyhing about the Pefkos Beach especially the friends weve made and the brilliant staff (who are also our friends!) we cant see how we can better it.
Its such a safe resort the teenagers can go off by themselves of an evening with no concerns and they enjoy themselves.
The standard everywhere is good with excellent food throughout and the apartments and complex are spotless and very well run.

Just returned from 2 weeks at the Pefkos Beach and didnt want to come home ! Our 3rd time in Pefkos but first time at these apartments and they were lovely . We had a studio which was a great size with a fab bathroom , good maid service every day apart from sunday with clean sheets and towels every other day . All staff friendly esecilly the girl on reception on a morning . Didnt spend much time at the pool cos we like the beach but everywhere was well maintained , the pool behind Nostalgia restaurant was lovely . Weather fab as usual and we would definitely come back to this hotel xx

Was really looking forward to staying here after all the brilliant reviews and I have to say we did feel a little disappointed by the end.

We arrived a little early and found the guy on reception a little surly - "You werent supposed to be here this early" was one quote. This at 10PM. Sorry we will go away and come back later then if it suits you. The same man complained at my wife asking if they had any info on the planned 24 hour strike because he "had people asking this all day" and that he felt like putting a sign up. Not the friendliest I have ever seen. The young girl on morning shift however was charm personified and took all requests in her stride.

Our allocated room (112) was directly behind another block and the much vaunted view of the ocean was not applicable to us. This did however have the benefit of keeping the room slightly cooler through the day so we didnt feel the need for aircon, even in June which saved a few bob so swings and roundabouts I guess. Lovely and clean with a nice modern bathroom and a large balcony I have no problem with the room at all.

A lot has been said about the hill and the cable car but we often by passed it for the stairs, its really for the elderly or particularly unfit but I guess its a nice little touch.

We only spent on emorning around the top pool and didnt eat there this time but we have on previous visits and its been fine if unspectacular.

I dont know why but I think its number one rating and five star reviews gave me a bit of a false impression before coming here. Theres nothing wrong with it as such but its nothing special. Maybe a better view and friendlier reception staff might have helped

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the front block to get the views

Absolutely lovely hotel, set in a perfect location for all the shops, beach and restaurants and bars. Beautifully kept gardens and pool lovely and clean. Rooms are also lovely and kept very clean and are spacious. If you want air-conditioning during your stay it is £55 euros for the week. We managed without, however, it was very hot and made it slightly uncomfortable to sleep, so would reccommend you budget for this as it would definitely be needed in the further summer months. Hotel Bar and Restaurant, had lovely food and brilliant and friendly staff. Could not have asked for more. Would definitely recommend to a friend and would love to go back there. Looking around the other hotels in Pefkos - this one looked by far the best. Some of the rooms are set on the hill top so the cable car is a must.
