Reviewed 24 June 2014

I've just returned from a holiday with my daughter and her family from the Island Blue Hotel in Pefkos, Rhodes. This hotel is excellent,spotlessly clean the maids, waiters, receptionists, bar staff, maintenance, gardeners and whoever I've forgotten to mention were all very friendly and obliging.My two little granddaughters loved it and one learnt to swim like a fish. We also saw a few weddings there as they have a little church in the grounds.As we were bed and breakfast only we tried the Elia restaurant at the hotel for our evening meal a few times and the food was great. A couple of other restaurants I would recommend are Flavia where I had beef stifado fantastic and Artemis who do the most delicious Caesar salad. Went on the glass bottom boat to Lindos and the skipper made us all laugh. I hope to go back and would thoroughly recommend his to anyone .

Room Tip: We had a middle floor room overlooking pool with a kitchenette just right for us 5

We stayed at Island Blue hotel for 10 days in June. This hotel is wonderful, I cannot recommend it enough. The rooms are lovely and very clean, all are overlooking the pool with a balcony. The hotel staff are all great and so helpful, we liked Stergos from the Island Blue pool bar, we think he is the most organised bar man ever, his bar was immaculate! The breakfast is a buffet which has plenty of choice. The Elia restaurant it lovely and the Greek night was great fun, the dance troop are brilliant, I'd recommend you get booked in for it! We went to some of the evening entertainment in Pefkis Islands, the Adele tribute was great if you want a chilled evening at the hotel. Lee beach, which is very close to the hotel is clean and the water is lovely and clear - we spent a couple of days on it and loved it.

Overall, Pefkos is a lovely resort, our favourite things to do were the Glass Bottom boat trip which you just have to go on. We also did 'discover scuba diving' at Lepia Diving school which was brilliant and an excursion to Rhodes Old Town. All of these I would recommend doing. There are some great restaurants in Pefkos too, our favourites were Enigma, Nikolas' Taverna, Pefkos Restaurant and Philosophia.

We are missing Blue Island and Pefkos a lot, thanks for a great holiday!

We stayed at the Island Blue at the beginning of June, cannot fault a thing. The accommodation was fantastic, the staff were brilliant, helpful at all times. The location is superb. Everything about Island Blue was lovely. Great room overlooking the pool as they all do. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. Breakfast was great, good start to the day, lots of variety. We have only been back a week and have booked again for next year :o)
Don't wait long as it is the best hotel we have ever stayed in. Thank you Island Blue xx

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are great, straight into the pool

We have just returned from island blue been going to pefki island resort from 2000 .the staff are great, rooms are very clean, restaurant very good.but it feels like a wedding venue not a holiday for couples or family anymore, saving sun bed for family and friend from other hotels ,security came out at 3.00am because of the language of group of lads.you can hear every word that said walls are not very thick.

We have just returned home after having 11 nights at Island Blue, this was our 3rd visit and we enjoyed it very much again, the hotel is run very well, the staff are very plesant and helpful, everywhere is lovely and clean, the rooms are spacious with a full size fridge which is handy, the breakfasts are very good with something for everyone and the breakfast staff manage very well especially about 9 o clock when it gets very busy, if you want it a bit quieter go a little earlier and its nice and peaceful.

yes it does get a lot of large groups here as there seems to be a daily wedding, but its usually a mixed age group and everyone is very pleasant and upbeat looking forward to their big day, maybe we were just unlucky this time as there was a group of lads there (not even sure they were staying at the hotel) who made it a bit uncomforable with their language in the pool, not nice if you have young children, we just moved to another pool but i know i few people werent happy about them.

Pefkos as usual is a great resort with some lovely restaurants, our favourites were Kyma, Nicolas and Dama Dama, but at lunchtime Philosophia's is lovely, all the locals working in the resort are so welcoming and work hard to make you stay as nice as possible, would we return again, yes im sure we will.

Room Tip: All rooms have pool view

We were staying in The Island Blue Hotel for a wedding and it was great, we ended up with 2 rooms and it was big spacious rooms with a shower and toilet in each room, the breakfast were as you would expect for a Buffett breakfast, pool was very cold though, sun loungers were a wee bit uncomfortable but that could be down to me lying on it all day, we didn't eat lunch or dinner here as there are lots of restaurants in Pefkos but we did have dinner at the wedding which was lovely, would defiantly go back.

Room Tip: Room with part kitchen was great

A group of 51 of us travelled to pefkos for my wedding which was on 26th May 2014. Most of our guests stayed at Island Blue Hotel, with others staying at Pefki Island Resort and Linidia Thalassa.
The island blue hotel was everything and more we could have wanted, it was immaculate, cleaned daily, amazing double shower in our room (356) and we had a view across the main pool where we could also see the sea in the distance, it really was beautiful!
I was pleasantly surprised at how close the hotel was to the apartments which was fantastic as it meant it was ideal for meeting up with our wedding party.
Although we booked our holiday through Thomson, we booked our wedding direct through Louise at the hotel after she was recommended by friends who had stayed at the hotel previously.

We booked in June 2013, and I can honestly say that up until the day of our wedding Louise was there for any queries or concerns I had, instantly reassuring me and giving me all the advice and help I needed which meant a stress-free wedding build up!!!!. Louise made our day perfect and nothing was too much for her. The table decorations and flowers were just amazing, I had sent her quite a few pictures of bouquets I liked the look of, and the same with table decorations and she went over and above to get what I wanted.
The food at our wedding was fantastic, we had the Greek set menu, and the breakfasts we had daily during our 2 week holiday were also brilliant!
I could go on forever about our wedding but in summary it was PERFECT!!!! Thank you to Louise and all of the staff at Island Blue!

The staff at the hotel were always accommodating and very friendly! And Pefkos was a lovely place, we will definitely be returning!!!!!! Each member of our large wedding group had nothing but praise for the Holliday and wedding, amazing time xx
