“you will not get better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

Going back for our 7th year at hotel Ziakis.Excellent family run hotel,has the best views you will find in rhodes.The staff work extremely hard to make your stay so enjoyable and hassle free.The rooms are kept spotless,the maids work so hard.Enjoyed the relaxed feel arond the pool area,with plenty of sun loungers available.Our family(thats how they feel) always have a warm welcome for all there guests,and Yannis the barman is a legend .So if you are looking for a fantastic family holiday in rhodes,I would recommend staying at the Zakis,you will not be dissapointed.

Room Tip: ask for family room with sea view

My husband and I have just returned from a 10 day stay at Hotel Ziakis. I have to agree with all the positive comments and wonder at the people posting negative comments. Someone actually mentioned that there was only one tiny picture in the room! Admittedly the elderly owner spoke very little English but was always very friendly and we did manage to communicate where necessary. The hotel was clean, rooms were cleaned every day except Sunday and towels and bedding changed every other day. Does anyone really need more than that? You know before you travel that it is on a hill but that is part its charm because it gives you the stunning views. We are in our 60s and managed the hill 2 or 3 times a day with no problem. Just walk slowly if necessary. We mainly used the goat track which did shorten the journey down into Pefkos. We even used it back from our evening meal, although a torch is handy. However the star of Kiakis is Yannis. His English is very good, nothing is too much trouble, he is very friendly and works extremely hard. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who doesn't have mobility problems. We really enjoyed our stay and would return.

Would also recommend Taverna Anixis. It's a 10 or 15 minute walk(unless you use the goat track which is quicker). Good food, friendly service, reasonable prices with views over the sea.

Room Tip: Upper rooms give the best views, especially Blocks 3 and 4

Stayed at the Ziakis because of the price and reviews on tripadvisor. Can't fault on either of those. The hotel is clean, the pool fantastic and Yannis is a little gem. God that man works. Only thing missing would be a Greek or karaoke night to bring the guests together. Not a big issue I know. All told we've made some smashing friends and will definatly be back next year. If Ziakis was an ebayer would be AAAAAAAA.

Just got back from a week's stay at this hotel. It was brilliant. It is at the top of a fairly steep hill and as they don't have a restaurant you will have to travel up and down it in the evenings but that is the only pertentail down side to staying here.

We arrive in the early hours and reception was still open waiting for us which was a good start. Room was comfortable and of a good size, the view from our balconey was great overloking the sea and looking down on the town and hills to the side.

Yanni (?) who ran the snack bar was especially great and did a brilliant job looking after us around the pool.

Would certainly like to return one day.

Room Tip: try to get to get the higher floor facing the sea as these have the best views.

Booked this because of price and the great reviews on trip adviser , we were not dissapointed , place was immaculate . Rooms very clean and nicely furnished . 1200 watt hair dryer in bathroom was a bonus. Cleans towels everyday except Sunday , beds were were comfortable . Safe deposit in room 20 euros per week. My biggest tip would be to book a high floor sea view the views are amazing , we stayed in room 414 could fault it. Now this hotel is on top of a hill so if you have any walking probs maybe this is not for you, we did manage to walk it but we are quite fit and healthy , you can get a taxi which would cost a min of 5 euros, felt this was a bit of a rip off considering you are only in car for 2 mins. Perkins in a lovely with 3 beaches, 8 euros for 2 beds on beach. Plenty of lovely restaurants, much mention Mary & ginas fish restaurant , best food ever, also zorbas on the main bit 8.90 euros for 3 courses... Lovely . Stay away from the kebab place opposite the rock bar at the bottom of road, ordered a chicken fillet kebab, what I got was processed chicken, was not impressed . Couldn't for the life of me get a decent glass wine , so if you know what you want pls ask, otherwise it all taste like vinegar. 2.50 / 3.50 euros for pint beer, 4/5 euros for spirits. Greek people very friendly, felt safe all the time. Pefkos very chilled and we thoroughly enjoyed every day, thanks to Stella and her husband for making our stay a pleasure, we can't recommend this place enough , only been open nine years, this stands out from the rest !!!! Hello to are neighbours from Devon xxx

Room Tip: Book high floor sea view room 414

Our 7th trip (2nd this year) and The Ziakis never fails to deilver. The view from Room 420 still "Wows" me every time. Spotlessly clean, wonderful pool, pool bar (great food Yannis) and a family who will do anything to make your holiday special. Thankyou to Mika, Stella and Yannis for another relaxing, warm and friendly holiday. Looking to returning next year.

Room Tip: Rooms on top floors.

The Ziakis is located on a hilltop overlooking Pefkos - lovely views from a lot of the rooms and also the swimming pool terrace. It is family run - all very friendly and welcoming; Mum and dad only have a little "holiday English" the daughter who works in the afternoons speaks fluent English. The dad runs the shop - very handy for water and basics - open all day until quite late 9- 10pm?
Our room 520 was in the main building with a large open terrace and sea view. The room was very clean and well maintained. It had a small kitchen area with sink, worktop,fridge,kettle and enough equipment to cope with breakfast and snacks (note no toaster) Bathroom was fine, plenty of hot water. Bed and pillows comfy enough. Sheets and towels changed every couple of days. Could here some noise from the bar and corridor at night. If you want the air conditioning it was 50 Euros a week; to stay late in your room on your last day 30 Euros (thought this was a lot so we didn't use either). There is a shower and hair dryer in the pool side toilet area which is adequate to get washed and changed in on your last day.
The swimming pool was large and lovely to swim in once you got used to the cold water! The sun beds had comfy cushions and were adjustable but a few had splits in the plastic bases so needed checking prior to use.
The pool side snack bar was great for lunch - there was a good selection of reasonably priced food and Iannis (sp?) was helpful and friendly. He was also a good cook who paid a lot of attention to hygiene and presentation. The pool bar did unfortunately shut at about 5pm so there was no service after that until he was back on duty at the main bar in the evening. You will have to venture out at night for dinner - the nearest restaurant is about 15 mins walk away. Numerous restaurants to choose from in Pefkos 15 - 25 mins walk
As others have said - the walk into town is Ok - 10-15mins downhill; the walk back at night is very dark and quite steep - not great after dinner and a few drinks. The best solution is a taxi
5 Euros approx. There are 3 beaches you can walk to in about 20-25 mins - with beds/umbrellas to hire.
The hotel next door - the Pefkos Blu - has a great bar and spectacular view for watching the sunset and having a pre dinner drink. Turn left out of the Ziakis and walk for about 5 mins, bearing left and you will come to the Pefkos Blu.
We thought the Ziakis was great value and would highly recommend it to couples. Family ok but you would need a car - children would not like the hill!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view
