“Lovely hotel, we were very happy”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

We chose the Pefkos Beach after reading previous Tripadvisor reviews and the most important thing is to book a superior room, I don't think it is that much more expensive. The hotel was lovely, staff very welcoming and spoke English, a good range of swimming pools and nice bars/restuarants. It was 55 Euros a week for air conditioning but it was so worth it!

We had room 127, which was up the hill. Luckily there is a lift but it is still uphill and a few steps after that. The room was spacious, clean, huge bed, nice bathroom and basic self catering area.

Would recommend the hotel without a doubt, just get a superior room!

Pefkos itself has a wide range of restaurants and touristy shops. I'm vegetarian so was a little worried but I managed to eat out every day. There was always pizza or pasta as a back up so my meat eating partner could eat more exciting stuff. On to recommended places to eat. The best places were Philosophia Beach Restaurant, hard to find but so very worth it. Absolutely stunning. Enigma was very good too and had good veggie choices. The Indian/Chinese place at the far end of Pefkos was also good. Flavia is also very nice. Flyers, which is on the right end of the beach, is great and the Greek breakfast was the best we had. Avoid the following: Melteme (very false atnosphere and food average) and the 7.90 Euro places (awful). Other places we ate were non-descript. There is a fabulous bakery up the hill from taxi rank and it is well worth an early morning trip, try the banana choco pastry! It has a well stocked supermarket too. Mingos the hotel supermarket is fine but the next one up the road away from Pefkos has lovely Baklava and a good range of ice cream. We drank several nights in the Rock Bar at the far end of Pefkos, where the coctails were varied, the staff were lovaly and the music varying from indie to heavier rock such as Anthrax and Metallica (more my type). The Friday night was the heavier night but otherwise it's all things guitar related.

As to excursions (we were with Thomson), we recommend the 4x4 trip which was great fun, we saw loads and the Seven Springs are really worth a visit, lunch was also nice although 10 Euro extra. We also went to the waterpark at Faliraki and that was good although can't be the biggest in Europe as the tour guide says! Lazy Day Cruise was nice too although quite busy and followed Rhodes coastline instead of seeing other islands. We saw busier cruise boats though. We also booked a coach only transfer to Rhodes city through Captains Tours in Pefkos and it was much cheaper than Thomson price, 11 Euros return compared to 24! I recommend you see the Captain Tour excursions, the booking lady was very nice. Rhodes city was bustling, and the walk around the moat was stunning. It was the only time I saw beggars or people coming up to you doing stuff to try to get money - just walk on fast and don't engage. On the return coach out of Rhodes city we stopped for 20 minutes at Rodini Park, which was the stunning surprise of the day. A lovely river, with rough built wooden bridges, and resident ducks and turtles, just stunning. That was a Captains Tour bonus, for no obvious reason, at no extra cost but just to showcase the beauty. We went to Lindos, which was a let down in our view. The acropolis was over restored and so looked too 'new' but the views were good. Beware of the cafe just by acropolis entrance as the drinks are mega expensive - 4.50 Euros for a plastic cup of fresh orange juice! Almost fainted with shock ;o) Pefkos beach itself is nice, a pair of sunbeds were 8 Euro and it is quieter at the right end of the beach although slippy stones just in water that you have to navigate to get in and out. The left end of beach is sand straight into sea but is busier.

I'll add photos of our trip later but all in all we had a great time and would go again in a few years!

Room Tip: Pay extra for the superior rooms and pay for air con. We were in 127 with a good view, although ther...

Excelent Hotel. The superior rooms which are up the hill have good views across the bay. The hotel is very modern and clean. Facilities are good and although 20 yrs old, the family upgrade a lot of facilities every year, so the hotel is always looking refreshed. The "nostalgia" restaurant has a good choice of food and one of the largest roof top restaurants in the area

Room Tip: Pick a superior room which is up the hill and slightly away from the main complex. There is a lift t...

What a fantastic hotel. The room (we had a superior one up the hill) was excellent. At first we were a little bit disappointed not to have a view but we spent more time out at the pool, beach, or palm cocktail bar. Great service in all parts of the hotel and spotless toilets and pool area. The beach is great and we always managed to get a sunbed. The guys at the bars were brilliant. They just couldn't do enough for you. All meals at various tavernas were excellent. We would recommend Melltemi which is on the road down to the main beach. The Lee beach bar was also excellent with brilliant service and a large menu catering for all tastes. The reception team at the hotel were the most helpful I have ever come across and all in all we decided to go back again in September. IT WAS THAT GOOD!!!

Just got back......We booked this a couple of weeks before going and just wanted a low cost holiday in the sun. we fell lucky. the rooms were the highest standard that I've seen in Greece with a spacious bathroom. everything was clean and well run. location was great. the reception staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. the maid was charming. everything was geared to make the holiday as relaxing as possible.Our superior studio was a bit of a climb in the heat, but we either took the lift, or walked off some of the mousaka. Pefkos as a restort was ok, it is obviously geared up for the UK tourist market. we missed authentic Greece. we ate at Spitaki a few times and loved it. Others we enjoyed were dama dama and Terpsis and Smile Garden for its excellend fixed price menu. The Greek House was a bit overpirced we felt. Many nights spent in the Rock Garden for its great music and a couple of afternoons at Lees Beach bar - v chilled. the Enigma bar was good for cocktails and snacks. All in all a great value relaxing break!

Room Tip: Superior studios - great bathrooms

Just returned from a week at the Pefkos Beach Apartments, and was really impressed. Lovely place, very well kept, pool great, had room 405, right by the pool and opposite the pool bar on the ground floor, ideal stay. Yes the air conditioning was expensive, but it is always extra in Greece. Food at the pool bar was great. Food at Nostalgia was better. Pefkos itself is good, not too much for the party animals, but great for a relaxing holiday. Beach is good, but buy yourself swimming shoes for about 8 Euros. Best beach bar was Flyers, great staff, Nikos is lovely. Went up in his plane, the small orange Zenair, 50 Euros for 20 minutes, amazing views of Pefkos and also down to Lindos. Well worth the money. All in all a great holiday.

We have just returned from a week at the Pefkos Beach Hotel. This was our second time here but this time there was a large family party of us with 2 children age 6 and 8, a teenager and couples in their early twenties and thirties as well as us oldies! It did not disappoint. The accomodation for my daughter was huge and situated by the childrens pool and comfortably slept four . The rest of the party were up the hill in the superior accomodation, which was very very comfortable. The apartments were spotlessy clean, towels and bed linen changed regularly and the views were fantastic.We also found the beds comfortable. It is a steep climb and we took the cable lift which made it a lot easier. Air conditioning was an extra charge but this was made clear in the brochure so came as no surprise. The air con was also very quiet and didn't disturb us at night which was a bonus. The Pefkos although being towards the end of the strip is central to everything. Lots of restaurants and bars so no need to eat in the same place twice. It is a short walk to the beach .There is a taxi rank with fixed prices. The younger ones in our party went to the Pefkos by Night club most evenings, and they loved it there. The pool bar offered a good selection of food which was very good and very reasonable, the staff were very friendly and efficient so all the ingredients for a good holiday. During the day we often went to the Kelari Bar and Pool Bar. This is in the road opposite the hotel towards the beach on the right hand side. The food here was exceptional and again very reasonable. It was a comfortable place to sit as there was no overcrowding with tables and was very relaxing. Overall The Pefkos Beach Hotel is a fantastic hotel and very welcoming. We wouldn't have returned otherwise.

We were part of a wedding group, see review below, and had an absolutely fabulous time here. We had a room up the hill with an excellent view. It was a trek up the hill, but it was well worth it. The room was clean, and had a little kitchenette, but we only used it for breakfast. The service here was unbelievable, after working in the service industry in the US, I couldn't believe how genuinely nice and accomodating everyone was. It was an easy walk to the beach and other restaurants, quick taxi ride to Lindos, and overall a great location. I would stay here again. An excellent value for the money.

Room Tip: Rooms up the hill have amazing views
