I stayed at pefkos village along with my parents and my fiancé in August for a family wedding. The staff are brilliant by day two they knew you by name and always asked how you were doing but the accommodation is lacking. We had two one bedroom apartments that were supposedly able to sleep three people only if the third person minds sleeping behind the front door and does not take any belongings with them as the only wardrobe is in the main bedroom. Lets hope they don't need to use the shower as this is technically an en-suite so no real communal use. In my apartment we had to get maintenance in to our room within 30mins of checking to fix the broken shower. The food on site is brill really enjoyed BBQ night can recommend to everyone.

Reviewed 6 November 2012

We stayed at the Pefkos Village in August this year and the hotel was very clean and well kept, the food was also very nice and i would reccomend eating here. The bar in the evening is fine if you want to listen to the same music on repeat constantly, my husband had to download some music from our phones onto the computer for the bar man as he also was fed up of the same songs or background music. Barman may i add is very nice and helpful and if you talk to him too long he will get you very drunk on free shots so we ended up avoiding the bar some nights as we did not wish to offend him by saying no thanks. All staff are very pleaseant and friendly and always there to help. The hotel pool is extreamly nice and ideal if you have children as there is a park and a games area for them. The nearest beech to the hotel is, go out the gates turn right, follow the road round until you come to a kind of junction then turn left and follow this down to a small but pleasent beech with a taverna. If you follow the path to the right once you reach the beach it will take you over to the main big beech and save you the long walk down the main strip. Pefkos Village we was told by the agents is that its a 10minute walk to the main strip, well no its a ten min walk to the top of the hill to the nearest taverna then another 20 min steady walk to the strip. Now this is not long you may say but we went out for dinner around 6pm to 7pm and the sun was still as hot as it was in the day so it felt like hour walk. Once at the top of the hill it was a flat walk all the way. The main strip of ~Pefkos is not thriving with clubs and loud bars they are come in sit down and listen to music and chat bars which we personally do not mind. We would reccomend a bar called the pub the staff are very friendly and welcoming and one night when it was late we was talking to the owners and they said our hotel was to far to walk at this time of night and gave us a lift home. Also Angel bar is a very nice friendly var and child friendly with its own park area.
We did not eat out alot but we ate in the Nikolas which is at the top of the hill from the hotel and we ate here twice and both times the meal was fantastic. I nagged my husband to try the restaurant called the enigma as it looked very posh and inviting, sadly the meal was very poor for the price or even if you got it cheaper it was poor. Meals on average were around ten euros each depending on what you had. Beer was 3 euros for a large and Bottles tended to be about 4.50 euros. The beeches in Pefkos are beautiful and very sandy. There are plenty of places to eat and drink near by and you can see and feed a variety of different fish just by being waist height in the sea. Sunbeds for two people were 8 euros for the day and you never had to fight to get any as there were plenty to go round. Supermarkets here are reasonble also if you wish to eat in yr apartment as we did some nights and there is a Pharmacy on the main road which i can personally reccomend. Dont waste your time walking up to the bakery as its a steep hill and when you get there the cakes look amaing but then all taste the same. (despite what the rep will tell you). It is worth walking right along the main strip as there are lots of bars and restaurants for adults and children. Definatly try the Eclipse bar at the end if you have kids and walk all the way around once inside because you will be amazed at what you see! Whilst in Rhodes we wanted to visit Rhodes town but we decided this was to far to travel as it was we were told around a three hour bus journey so we went to the next resort along which was Lindos. We went by local bus which was air conditioned and costs 5 Euros for two. Lindos is a spectacular place very traditional and pretty to look at. the village climbed up from the beech up the side of the mountain were at the top you can find the Accroppolis(6euros each).If you go up the Accroppolis take plenty of water as it was amazngly hot when we were up there and few people were passing out with the heat as they were not prepared with water. The village was very hot as the streets are narrow and it has lots and lots of craft shops but you were never nagged to go in them. The beech here is also very good and the restaurants along the beech side were you can also get a boat are very good too. One day we went to Lindos by bus and another day we went by boat. Whilst in Lindos we visited ST Pauls Bay which is extreamly stunning and i can see why lots of people choose to get married here. On this holiday we chose not to do to many organised trips like we normally do and had a bit of a lazy one but it was the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. I would reccomend the Pefkos Village Resort if you dont mind the walk or you want to stay in the hotel and have a relaxing time but if you prefer to be closer to the main strip there are lots of other apartments and because Pefkos is not a 18-30's kind of place they were all very suitable. Taxi back to our hotel was 5 euros and you can get these on the main road at a properly signed taxi rank.
I loved Pefkos and would certaintly go back again.

Not sure if I really want to write a review as it may encourage more visitors and I might find it harder to get a room in the future.
The focus of many previous reviews is that this hotel is not in the centre of Pefkos. That can be a problem for some but by venturing away from the main centre you may come something a bit special that makes the distance worth it. Far enough away to give the hotel an almost exclusive, boutique-type hotel feel; but close enough to enjoy all the benefits of a resort such as Pefkos this hotel will appeal to different types of holiday-makers.
With a limited amount of rooms available it never feels crowded but affords a camaraderie between everyone sharing the same experience.
Having stayed here several times, with the last time being a few years ago it was interesting to return to see how the hotel had developed and moved on. It was great to see the high standards we have previously enjoyed being maintained - the pool and sunbeds tidy and clean, the grounds looking superb and the food and bar area as good as ever. The rooms have an individual feel and certainly those behind the pool are more like mini-villas than apartments. Aircon is no more expensive than other hotels in Pefkos in our opinion (we have been visiting this resort for 11 years)
The team of people working at this hotel are excellent - customer-focused and professional but approachable and friendly. The maintenance team (groundsmen, cleaners) have done a great job again to keep the place looking so beautiful and inviting. The management team are obviously doing a fantastic job.
The downside? Well as per previous reviews its not in the centre of the resort. If that is definitely a problem then the hotel is not for you. However its fair to say the hotel is not isolated. There are plenty of bars, restaurants and pools close by if you want a change. Its only a 20 min walk or a short taxi ride to the centre and its position has a lot to offer - nice walks, views across the headland and quiet lanes to explore.
Look past the fact that this hotel is not right in the centre and you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: rooms behind pool have a mini villa-like feel

Cannot find any faults with hotel,staff etc. we had a very relaxing holiday here even the cats were friendly! Kavos taverna not far from village resort with a small beach should not be missed either! All in all we will definitely recommend Pefkos Village Resort to all our friends & we shall be back if we come to Rhodes again!

It's always difficult to give a slightly negative review when you've really enjoyed the holiday, but the more information people have the better able to make a judgement.

Pefkos Village Resort is as other reviewers have described on here. Overall it's a clean, friendly, welcoming place, with a great pool, nice rooms and helpful reception.

On arrival check in was fast and easy and we were directed to our room. We had room 118 which is ground floor (the resort is two storey) directly facing the pool and bar. A large apartment with double bedroom with plenty of storage, a good bathroom with bath and shower, and a living room with 2 single beds, table, chairs, telly and a good cooker. The rooms were cleaned every day except 1 and towels were changed once, so thats fine by us. We first went to Greece 30 years ago and whats available now is completely different to what it used to be! There was a large balconey, and overall the room was just right, with only slight issues. There was no washing up cloths, sponges etc, which you obviously need if self catering. The shower was very good apart from the last morning when we couldn't really get any hot water - up to then it was very hot and powerful. Being on the ground floor we were disturbed by the children running about upstairs and the chairs/tables etc being dragged around. Nothing major but slightly annoying.

The pool areas was very good, plenty of sunbeds, although I could see it being busy in the height of the season. Only one group of four did the towel thing, where they walked down very early, reserved their very special sunbeds, then walked off. There was shade or sun depending on the place you picked, and it was very quiet and relaxing. The WI-FI doesn't really reach there and is very hit and miss, so if that's important to you then be aware you really need to be sat in the bar.

Breakfasts are good, nice selection and freshly prepared. We picked the B&B option offered by Thompson, and at £5 each I wouldn't bother. You can probably pick whatever you want for that price anyway, sometimes even less. It's a shame they only offer juice OR coffee, it's so usual nowadays to get both that we thought it strange. The only problem with breakfast is that they serve it from 9am. We missed several due to going on trips, setting off early etc. This wouldn't have mattered apart from us pre-booking it; this is something we've never done before and wouldn't do again, there is no value to be gained from it.

The staff are all friendly and helpful, Donna in the bar and the lady in reception (we didn't get her name unfortunately but we had a couple of chats with her).

Yes, the air conditioning is very expensive, at 90 euros for the week its the most we've ever seen. We didn't choose it, as we like to have the windows open and listen to the night sounds. I'm sure the actual cost is not mentioned in the Thompson brochure. Perhaps it should be so that it's not a surprise. Safetry deposit box was 14 euros for the week, which was very handy.

Having the windows open meant that we were badly disturbed by the extremely loud music from the bar, up to midnight every night. I'm not talking gentle sounds of Greek music, I'm talking REALLY LOUD rock/house/disco music. It was so bad that on the second morning we asked if it could be turned down. That night it was slightly lower, then BAM, back up the rest of the week. Trust me, I'm not exagerating when I say how loud it was, and one couple said that it's a clever way to get you to buy the air conditioning, so you could shut the doors/windows onto the patio. You could still hear the loud beat through the windows, so if this sort of thing annoys you, you need to think if this resort is for you. The place was full so we couldn't have moved if we had wanted to. I'm not sure that all rooms were affected, as there are three rows going back, but crikey it ruined our evenings! If we were to go back to Rhodes we would probably try the Babis apartments, which were 2 mins away. We passed it on our walk back each night, and there were several couples sat around the pool, quiet, relaxing, no music....then we arrived at ours...aaarrrggh!

It's 15/20 minutes walk into town, passing several tavernas. We liked Enigma and Nostalgie, but just pick the ones that look okay and they usually are. For trips we used Zorbas, which was cheap and reliable (Rhodes by Day, 11 euros). The glass bottomed boat to Lindos was great fun. Snorkelling on the beach is excellent. Bars are good. Food is good. Car hire is available and overall there is everything you need.

So, we would recommend the resort and the hotel, and the only decision is the loud music. If it's going to bother you then ask for a room at the back, second floor, and get air conditioning. Or go elsewhere. But if you do try Pefkos Village Resport you will like it and want to go back I'm sure. It's got really good reviews on here for a reason...it's really good.

Room Tip: If you need it to be quiet, ask for a 2nd floor room far away from the bar music.
