When we first booked and paid for the Finas, it was only 3 weeks before we were due to go, so we got a really good deal it was only 500 quid for both of us self-catering for 14nights. Because of this though, we were actually dreading it a bit, thinking we were going to end up in some rat infested, dirty, smelly half - built hotel! Especially after reading the awful reviews. So when we arrived at the beautifully lit, flower-filled gardens of the Finas Hotel in the middle of the night, we couldn't believe our luck. The staff on arrival were very friendly, despite it being 2 in the morning, greeted by 30 stressed, tired holiday makers. The accomodation was basic, just normal greek apartments, it had a very big bed, as well as a single bed, desk, wardrobe, bedside tables, a kitchenette and a small balcony with a gorgeous view of the sea, gardens and mountains. The Finas seems secluded, from the pool all you can see is gardens and mountains, and hear the beautiful resident peacock! The hotel was run by a small team of staff, who you could tell were all good mates. They were more than just friendly, on your first morning for breakfast, they go out of their way to find out and remember your names, which i found incredibly welcoming. As were the bar staff at night who did exactly the same thing, before giving us our very first drink at the Finas free. Tequila. One of many. Aris, the hotel manager is an absolute nut case. Hilariously funny and very good at his job. and i can't go without mentioning Campbell, the young Scottish barmen. Everyone is Campbell's mate and as far as he's concerned his duty is to make sure everyone has a memorable time. All the staff worked all hours, worked so hard running around after their guests, they really care.
The pool area is good, you always got a sunbed, and the supermarket at the end of the slope was really useful. The hotel had everything you'd expect from a small greek hotel, pool tables, pool, restaurant, breakfast and snack bar, crepe bar, big screen TVs, big bar/seating area, nice reception and toilets. The Hotel had really lively nightlife, you didn't need to go into the town, thats how good it was. Cheap too. They did loads of entertainment nights, BBQ night was really good, Kareoke night was good, you didn't get roped in if you didn't want to, you could just laugh at others. quiz and bingo also featured. The hotel had a really good balance of families, young couples, mature couples, older couples, groups of friends etc The hotel at night has an atmosphere you can't describe, busy enough to have a wild night with Campbell but still quiet enough to enjoy it with just your companion. Pefkos itself is small, absolutely RAMMED with restaurants and gorgeous bars. Chinese, indian, italian, seafood taverns and obviously some gorgeous greek ones. it is little and we had done literally everything you could in 2 weeks. 1 week would be enough. I would recommend going on a day trip to Lindos, its beautiful, and only a fiver in a taxi. My holiday at the Finas was without a doubt the best holiday i have ever had and i would recommend anybody to go who isn't bothered about basic accomodation, after all, its only somewhere to rest your head. Get down the bar at the Finas, they will make your holiday.
