We stayed here from 1st September 2012 to the 12th September 2012 on a self catering basis. This is an extraordinary establishment and one worthy of comment and praise. The check in procedure was swift and efficient and we were in our room within five minutes of arrival.
The room we had E227 was located on the first floor and overlooked the swimming pool and had a lovely balcony. The room was spacious, clean and actually slept three so plenty of scope to spread out. The room & kitchenette was well equipped so there was nothing we could have wanted. Air conditioning is provided but you have to pay seperately for this but we were aware of that prior to our arrival so not an issue. The house keeping was excellent with the rooms cleaned, the beds made up/sheets changed daily & fresh clean towels provided. The only slight downside to the room was the mattress on the bed. I suffer from a bad back so it wasn't the most comfortable of sleeps for me but no real drama.
The pool bar I have to say is a great place. The staff are friendly, attentive and it gives off a lovely atmosphere. Price wise the drinks are very reasonable and there is a happy hour everyday so you can sample the various coctails without breaking the bank.The lunchtime menu is also very good, tasty and again reasonably priced. In true Greek fashion some of the portions are enormous so you won't leave the table hungry !
There is a kids club at the venue and most days some form of fun activity is arranged around lunchtime such as volleyball and the such like. In the evenings there is a mixture of entertainment at this resort or one of its adjoining sister resorts.
There is a small supermarket attached to the hotel which is open from about 0730hrs until 2300hrs daily. Its reasonably stocked but some items are a little pricey. If you prepared to walk for 5 minutes try out Mingo's Supermarket which is larger and slightly better priced.
The beach is about 100 metres from the hotel & you access it by descending about 60 steps. The sun loungers on the beach are not free & a daily charge of 8 Euros is made. If you head down the beach in the afternoon after about 230pm there are usually some which have been vacated and as they've been paid for already (they peg the receipt onto the parasol) help yourself & save yourself some cash.
The main town is about 10 mins walk away but there are lots of bars, restaurants on the way so not an arduous journey. We enjoyed Mary & Gina's fish restaurant, Nikolaus tavener (great food but let down by not so great service), the Rock Bar & even had a reasonable Chinese whilst there. Prices of food vary but generally are cheaper than Lindos and the portions are enormous including the starters ! A nice place for a lunchtime drink or snack is the Kantina located east Pefkos on the seafront. Its a good 20 minute walk but worth it. Night life wise its not a disco town so you'll need to travel further afield for that but theres lots of places to eat, drink and relax until the early hours of the morning. If you want a treat and have lobster its about 50 Euros per kilo although one or two places try to charge you alot more. You will need to order it as far ahead as possible i.e. two or three days as they generally only stock it when its asked for.
Lindos is worthy of a trip and a taxi will cost you 10 Euro each way and takes about 10 minutes to get there. Don't attempt to walk it unless you are seriously fit as its quite a gruelling trek by foot ! Its a lovely town with lots of narrow walkways and again packed with restaurants. These seem to be about a third more expensive than in Pefkos !
So would we stay there again ? Definently. Some of the rooms/apartments overlook the sea so if you get the chance to stay in one of those I'd recommend it as the views/location are well worth it.
