This was our second stay in Pefkos but our first stay here. What a wonderful place that was right in the heart of everything. We found on our arrival we were at the top of the complex which included a small lift ride or "THE STEPS"! This became part of our holiday as my husband was determined to run up the steps by the end of it......He did do after a few "Zombie" cocktails from the wonderful Palm Coacktail bar, which was attached to the resort!!!
It was our first time staying in a studio and although it was was clean and tidy a bit of thought should have been put into cupboard space and lay out.
We had to bring some food out with us as my husband is Coeliac and we had already found out nothing was available to buy wheat free in the local shops. But although the kitchenette had a few cupboards we had to take out things to make space for the food, and prepare food on the table as no workspace.Definately would go for a bigger place next time.
The resort had wonderful settings with fountains and beautifully kept plants and gardens and 3 lovely swimming pools, which were kept tidy at all times.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful at any time of day, especially with us frantically ringing to say the air con wasnt working, only to find it was us being too impatient as you have to wait a few minutes for it to kick in!
There are some wonderful restaurants in Pefkos with Nikolas, Philosopia, Enigma and Artimis Garden being top of our list. Also a big mention to Alexandra's as they were a great find with wonderful food when we arrived as they were the only ones open late and we were starving! We made a return for lunch there at the end of our holiday and was still as good as the first night.
A few trips are a must, Lindos by day and by night, with a meal at Mythos roof garden restaurant (upstairs at the side of the donkey station) as it has the best views for when the sunsets, the glass bottom boat trip from Pefkos to Lindos, and this year we done a 4 x 4 trip, which was recommended by our wonderful Thomson rep Nikki, which took us off the beaten track to some wonderful places that you would normally miss, The 7 Springs including the Black Tunnel walk!!!!.......I did it!
Would definately go back to Pefkos Beach Hotel again......Hopefully soon :)
