Well, where do I start? Know this is a bit late, but here goes. Firstly, the one terrible review on here is somewhat a bit iffy. One contribution and been to Pefkos lots of times. Why not a good review of other places? Erm, makes me think! Anyway, arrived 29/09/10. Mary the receptionist picked us up in her car, outside Caprice bar. (Road too narrow for coaches). Otherwise it's only a five minute walk. On arrival, roundabout 4.00pm, shown to our room straight away. Everything in order. King sized bed, wow, dressing table with large mirror and enough power points. Kettle and toaster, rings for saucepans. Didn't intend to cook anything though. Had toast for breakfast or cereal. Read other reviews about the bathroom but found it to be okay. Hand held shower, which if negotiated correctly was fine. Always had loo rolls. Sheets changed every other day, as was the towels and they were always WHITE AND FLUFFY!! Safe in the wardrobe. Balcony overlooked the mountains and was always peaceful, day and night.
Pool was pleasant and pool bar prices were not overly expensive. Owners were not overly friendly but there if you needed them. We spent most of our days at the beach, which isn't that big but nice and tidy. Beach 5 minutes walk down the road. Bars and tavernas 5 minutes walk up the road. Two beds and parasol were €8.00 per day. Had lunch at Flyers bar most days. Steve the barman at Amfitriti was a great guy and made me my own cocktail which was lovely. Not sure whether he'll be there this season though. Pefkos is a purpose built resort but lovely nonetheless. Some lovely tavernas. Spitaki, Nikolas, Anixis and Coralli were our faves. (Coralli is a little walk out of Pefkos, towards Lardos). Jasmine bar was our drinking place before our evening meal. It was always full with a nice atmosphere. Large Mythos €2.50 or large Alfa €2.00. Glass bottomed boat trip is a must. Pefkos to Lindos return €18 each person. Leaves Pefkos at 11.00am, returns 4.00pm. The captain is really amusing and the trip is worth the money. Hired a car for two days for €50. Went to Asklipio, Prasonissi, where the Aegean and the Med meet which was really impressive. Sianna, which is a nice village, with a few tavernas and church. Rhodes town is not to be missed. Found a free parking space by the harbour. Some lovely eateries, but beware by the square. They'll try to get you in and charge you the earth for the privelege. Having said that, had a lovely Greek salad not far from the square which was very reasonably priced. Some very nice shops but won't leave you alone once you're inside. I was looking for a handbag, but didn't buy because of the hassle. Leave me alone and could have had a sale. A lot of beggars as well, although did fall for a little cheeky faced one! Back to Pefkos. Oasis bar, heading towards the beach held quizzes most nights. A really good laugh or really tedious, depending on the quizmaster, but good all the same! Pefkos by Night was another good place, where they held tribute acts. The Beatles were quite good, as were the Supremes! You'll know what I mean if you go. This is where the bus stop is to go into Lindos. €1.50 per person each way. Now what can I say about the place? Fell in love with it. Just a beautiful village. Lots of shops and tavernas, as well as plenty of bars. Yannis bar €3.50 large Mythos. Had 2 each. Only charged for 1 each. Staff too busy talking. Said nothing! Went again couple of days later and took ages to be served, so didn't feel guilty. Good place to people watch. Go to Billy's bar. Only €2.00 for large Mythos. No people watching, but lovely couple who owned it. Bought a handbag. No hassle. Went to Mythos taverna and had a lovely meal. Rooftop with beautiful views of the Acropolis (photos to follow, hopefully). Two main meals and litre of house white, €28. Not bad at all. Went to Stephanys, which was another lovely meal. Don't visit Lindos between 10am and 4pm. This is where all the cruise people come to visit. After 4.00pm it's perfect. Up to the Acropolis it's €5.00 on the donkey taxi. Or you can walk.
Just one more thing. There are two ATM's in Pefkos. We only got the one to work once. Either no money or out of order. Went to Lindos to get money. ATM by the donkey station. Never failed to work.
This was by far the best holiday ever and can't wait to go back. Thinking of staying in Lindos next year. All in all. Would we go back? You bet!!
