“Fantastic Hotel.”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Just got back from a fantastic stay at the Island Blue. We were part of a party of 46 on the Island for my daughter's wedding. We were staying between the Island Blue, Pefki Island and The Thalassa, and I think they were all great places to suit whatever you would want from your stay. The wedding was at St. Paul's Bay and my daughter's day was very well taken care of by the Thomson rep and the hotel guest relations manager. The reception, food and Greek Dancers at the Island Blue made a great end to a great day. I must also mention Maria, a Greek nail technician who put a smile back on my daughter's face at the 11th hour. I cannot thank the hotel and staff enough as they made my daughter happy, which made me happy.

Room Tip: All of the rooms at the Island Blue have a pool view, so every room is fine.

This was our second time at the Island Blue for our daughters wedding, everything was beyond perfect, room was amazing we had two bedroom apartment with two bathrooms and it was just my husband and I, because it was a ground floor apartment we were right in front of the pool so not far to go for a swim, plenty sun beds too and always some available. Breakfast was very good had cooked breakfast nearly every morning, good selection of fruit, yoghurt and breads. The hotel also went above and beyond when it came to my elderly mother who is disabled by providing a golf buggy to get her to Elia Restaurant for breakfast which they did not need to do and we want to say a huge thank you to the lovely buggy driver who my mum wanted to bring home!! The hotel also made my daughters dreams come true with the perfect wedding, the wedding planner in the hotel is one in a million, every single thing my daughter asked for she managed to do, she also managed to get her a videographer with only 48 hours notice. Can highly recommend this hotel to everyone and have booked again the minute we got home for June 2015 hopefully the same room.

The hotel is beautiful, modern, large rooms & spotlessly clean. Most staff we encountered were really nice & friendly. For us the only thing that let it down was the fact that there were so many wedding parties. Great if you are part of the large groups celebrating, but not so much if you are a couple looking for a quiet 2 weeks away. As the wedding parties were upstairs in the partly open air Elia restaurant, this also put us off having an evening meal there. One evening, there was even a Stag party at the pool bar right opposite our balcony that was rowdy to say the least. I can understand why it is so popular for weddings, but if we would have known there was likely to be so many large groups celebrating, we would probably have gone somewhere else. As this is something that can't be guaranteed, unfortunately we won't be going back.

I had an incredible week at this hotel for a friend's wedding. The facilities are brilliant, the pool beautiful and clean, and the location is perfect. The bar and restaurant is great but the best thing was the barman Makis! Only downside was the pool bar barman saving sunbeds for his family/friends (about 10 Greek teenagers) on a Saturday who then caused trouble and were loud around the pool; and the cleaners were a bit hit and miss, never fully cleaning the bathrooms or replacing used shampoos/shower gels.

June the 21 st, we booked a table by the pool for a special birthday treat,We could not have chosen better evening or restaurant,
It was a bit quiet when we arrive , apart fom we think a wedding party on the middle floor lots of people having a great time children as well.
That evening there was also a musician to entertain us while he was setting up we were chatting he was well known to all the staff his name was George, Would have liked to remembered his surname but it escapes me.
We choose a wine then the food and was very impressed with both the service and the quality of the food,We were even given a glass of champagne with our meal compliments of the house.Very good value for money very clean and will go back next time we visit Rhodes.
Its a must to try.

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!
