We arrived on the 3rd may unbeknown that this was their very first night opening for the season, so was very quiet when we got there. The greeting we got from Andy the night receptionist was wonderful and helped that he was English too!! We got to our room to find electric wasn't working and this was fixed within 10mins of us reporting this. Our first few days were overcast with a rain shower thrown in but still warm. This gave us the perfect opportunity to explore the beautiful scenery around us.
Pefkos is a small village with a few shops and bars however because our first week was start of season nothing was open for the first few days. We watched the week get busier by Wednesday on our first week and bars and shops started opening too.
Eating- we loved the Nostalgia restaurant on site, the food was fantastic I could not fault anything and the price was very cheap. Also we really liked eating in Enigma just over the road and Terpsis just down the road.
The pool - be warned it is VERY cold (ice bath) they do not heat their pools but wait for the sun to do it so can be a bit of a shock getting in. Also we didn't like that they didn't clean the pool once since we were there. They put chlorine in but the bottom became dirty after two weeks and still wasn't cleaned.
Beds - really hard and pillows quite big so a few sleepless unsettled had.
Staff - I can't fault them!! They are all very friendly and can't do enough for you to make your stay the best. They all speak great English and love having a chat with you.
As far as entertainment went there wasn't any when we were there. They said they do a quiz and bingo but nothing was on due to being too quiet start of May not much else in form of entertainment other than some bars in village.
Weather - 3rd may to 18th our visit we had 3 or 4 overcast days with 2 days of rain but these only lasted and hour or two. You will need a jacket of some sort for evenings as can get quite chilly. Other than that it was high 20's early 30's. We did not need air con as was not that hot at night.
I would definitely go back but maybe just a week next time. It was a very relaxed holiday which we wanted but would have liked to have seen more to do at the hotel, but given that Pefkos is a quiet village it fits in.
I would recommend staying here it was a lovely holiday and the views are stunning.
