This is an all-rounder of a place, with swimming pools, a sea-view restaurant and a lively cocktail bar.
This family-owned hotel is in a great spot. It’s less than 10 minutes from a sandy beach, as well as lots of bars and restaurants. Buses outside go to Lindos and Rhodes Town – and there’s even a free one to Faliraki waterpark.
Of the quartet of pools, one has a water feature while another has a little sprinkler for children. A poolside bar serves snacks by day and entertainment by night, while the restaurant does a great line in Greek classics.
These 2-bedroom apartments with their contemporary décor and furnishings have 2 twin bedrooms. They also come with air-conditioning*, a kitchenette with a fridge and a lounge. For some outside space, there's a balcony. Just to let you know 2-bedroom apartments are close to the pool area.

We were in a superior room at the very top of the hill. The first day in the heat it was a slog to get up there but we soon became acclimatised and it wasn't a problem. You can always stop to stroke the lovely cat on the way up if you need.
The rooms were smaller than they looked on Thomson's website but that said were more than ample. The hotel exceeded our expectations of a Greek 3* and we were pleasantly surprised. However, there seems to be some disparity over the cleanliness of the rooms. Some say it was spotless while a few say it was dirty. I think some spot checks need to be done by the management as our room was dirty and not cleaned thoroughly in all the time we were there. While the sheets were changed regularly the pillow cases were not, the balcony was never swept and the bathroom was rarely given a once over.
In the room there is a toaster and freezer in the fridge. I took some toaster pockets and we enjoyed a few cheese toasties. We also froze drinks overnight in the freezer to take out with us the next day.
The Greek staff were extremely friendly and bent over backwards to help. Be careful if it should rain, the floor near the pool toilets, which is used for the bar and restaurant gets extremely slippery. We saw a few people go down. Non slip mats would definitely be better than slippery floor signs ;-)
All in all a lovely hotel, centrally located and excellent value for money.More
October 2015 stay.
This is one of the best run hotels I have stayed in.The family who run this cannot do enough for you.The father is constantly keeping an eye on everything to make sure there are no problems.The 3 sons Kostas,Michailis and Phillip run everything to perfection.Nostalgia the rooftop on-site restaurant is very good and the service is excellent.Kostas at the top pool bar is a lovely guy.
The rooms at the lower part of the hotel are very spacious and sleep up to 4 people.
Air Con and Safety Deposit Boxes are in the rooms and are payable locally. The location is perfect.All the other restaurants and bars are close by.The Main beach is about a 10 minute walk straight down the road from the front of this hotel.More

This hotel / apartment complex is close to the main centre with plenty of restaurants and shops. It is on the main bus route to Rhodes and Lindos and a short walk from the beach. So in an excellent position. Our apartment was spacious and well equipped with a good sized balcony. There were two swimming pools and everything was very clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. The pool bar served snacks and drinks all day. This Thomson run hotel was good value.More

fantastic holiday one of the best
Cannot recommend Pefkos beach hotel enough one of the cheapest holidays we have ever had but also one of the best places we have stayed in. Had a standard apartment poolside and I think probably the best place in the complex to be. There was only two of us but it would easily have been enough room for 4 or more. We arrived in the middle of the night and were cheerfully welcomed in. The apartment and complex was kept very very clean during our whole stay and all the staff were friendly and helpful. We hired a car for the duration of our stay from short distance down the road to the beach at Zeus car rental who I would also recommend to rent from best price and very helpful. As we had a car we travelled around the whole island and I have to say I liked the resort of pefkos the best it offered everything you needed for a great holiday.
Will definitely return again I can understand why so many people stay here every year.
Thank you to all the staff a fantastic place to stay.More
As Good 2nd time around
Another great stay in October. Its quiet which we love and the weather was kind again. 33 degrees in the shade, got to 54.4 in direct sun but UVs not so strong. Stayed in a Superior Studio up the Hill. Decided on this as stayed in block 5 near the pool last year which was great but just wanted a change of scene. Great views of the bay. I have MS but i managed to make the climb however the lift was a Godsend.
Thanks to all the staff/family. They know how to run this resort and everybody works so hard but with a smile on their faces. Breakfasts, lunches are great and good value. Nostalgia good for an evening meal and Palm Cocktail bar lovely to spend that chilled out evening.
Thanks for making us feel special. Chris at the pool, thanks again mate, the guys behind the bar in Palm Yammas waiting/reception staff just thankyou. Very special place to us and lovely people. Enjoy the break guys.More
