Just got back from the finas 21 08 13 having booked through Sunsave. We had paid for an inland view room but were given room 113 which has to be the best going with a view straight across the bay . On arrival to check in at hotel there must have been 20 people in the queue and all the 2 people on the desk were interested in was getting your money for the safety deposit box at 15 euro and aircon 50 euro with a massive 5% discount voucher[ WHOOPEE!] for their vastly overpriced on site supermarket !!! . I said to the girl at the desk "i will come and sort that out in a little while all these people are waiting to check in". As i said the view was incredible the kitchen very basic but fine a working fridge and great shower.People moan about the smallest things weve been visiting greece since the 1980s so know what to expect. We are "beachlovers" so the crystal clear waters and sandy [not pebbly] beach were terrific. We didnt go in or around the pool all week but spoke to a couple of other guests who said there were broken loungers and parasols and trouble getting a lounger . The barman seemed friendly enough we had a couple of drinks on 2 afternoons but i suppose we felt as though we were independent travelers as we had no meals in the restaurant either. When you arrive and you get the impression theyre just after your euros it puts you off . there are plenty of alternatives in tavernas ,bars and supermarkets . we had some great meals out Zorbas was good 3 courses 9 euros and they gave us an extra half carafe of wine free! The best meal we had was at phillosophias overlooking the sea more expensive but well worth it great food great views. we found a great snack bar called seaview first on left as you come off the main beach great pitas 2 euros filled baguettes 2.50 euros served by very friendly couple we used to see the same people in there every lunchtime .Favourite bar was Rock Garden near hotel Yianni and staff made you more than welcome. When it comes to checking out i asked the girl on reception if there was somewhere we could have a shower and get changed. Her reply was "if you dont pay to keep the room on you can shower by the pool and change in the toilets" How friendly !! [not] . I cannot remember in over 30years of traveling abroad where a shower room or one guest room has not been put aside for leaving guests [1st time for everything] also you wont be surprised to hear there is a sliding scale of costs to "keep the room on" from 40 t0 60 euros. I like to be honest in my reviews my wife and i had a fantastic holiday great food ,great views and the weather was scorching. I understand everyone has to make a living but over zealous staff just looking for the next euro was the only real negative here . Would we come back to Pefkos ? definitely but not to the Finas
