“Wonderful holiday”
Reviewed 10 August 2011

We had a brilliant holiday here. Beautiful view from our appartment, lovely gardens excellent food. Pefkos is a wonderful place but be warned blisteringly hot! (July).

We arrived very early morning about 6pm. The whole transfers from Thomas Cook were seamless and you feel in good hands. When we got off the coach you could almost feel the envy of fellow passengers! The apartments externally are stunning.

I was glad I had read the reviews as we had allowed the 100 Euros for air con and you do need this!
Appartment sadly a little run down but this didn't spoil things as it was really clean and we had maid service alternate days.

We spent most of our time at the apartments as the food and service was excellent. Yes, I agree with all the reviews about the owners but I think they are shy and very hard working. I also like being left alone!

There are some lovely excursions but don't go through the reps we did not attend their meetings as we knew it was cheaper to book in the town. There was just enough to do for our 12 year old but I was constantly panicking about sunburn!!

Pefkos itself is really nice. The hill, yes the hill is tough but you get used to it and the taxis were on strike so we certainly got fit that week!

The real highlight is the glass bottom boat as in other reviews its a must. Try to be early as it gets book quickly!

When leaving you can pay to stay in the room we chose to leave at 12pm. The courtesy room had showers and we were able to keep our bags in the bar. We had to leave at 2am but the bar stayed open which was great. The coach also turned up on time so very happy with Thomas Cook on that score.

Cannot fault anything really so this holiday is brilliant choice you will not be disappointed. :)

Room Tip: Book a high floor so you get good views. Fellow guest asked for new building which is much nicer.

We have just returned from a wonderful 7 day stay at the Demitris Studios. We can honestly say that this was one of the best holidays that we have ever had in Greece. We were pleasantly surprised at the high standard of accommodation. A maid service everyday (apart from Sunday) provided clean sheets and towels. A first for us! The studios was spotless (we stayed in room 209) and the views across Pefkos were absolutely stunning. The brothers who manage the studios were friendly and attentive. The food prepared for the barbecue was tasty and good value. The only drawback was the steep hill from Pefkos town to the studios particularly as the taxis were on strike during our holiday.

My wife and I have just returned from our second 2 week holiday in Pefkos but our first at the Dimitris Apartments. These apartments are stunning !! The location 10 mins up a fairly steep hill from the resort centre was not an issue for my wife and I, as despite both now being in our early 50's we like walking and are both pretty fit. Anyway the breathtaking view more than compensates for the climb. Also as there was a taxi drivers' strike for the whole duration of our holiday then we had no option. The bar area, pool, grounds and apartments themselves are superb. You could always get a sunbed no matter what time you went to the pool which due to it's size in relation to the number of apartments was never that busy. I cannot comment on the food as we never ate there but it looked good. I agree that the two owners could be a bit a cheerier but for us that wasn't an issue as they were very helpful when we asked for anything. The grounds are extensive and beautifully maintained and you have the added benefit of lovely goats walking past at regular intervals. The apartments are clean, modern and well equipped with a lovey bathroom. Aircon is a must in mid summer and although 100 Euros for 2 weeks seems a bit steep it is pretty much "par for the course" these days. All apartments face the front so when you walk on to your balcony you get that stunning view of Pefkos bay. I would recommend Pefkos to anyone. It has a great selection of restaurants catering for all tastes and some excellent bars. My wife and I love a Curry and after a week of eating (lovely) Greek food we tried the Indian restaurant next to the Rock Bar (our favourite haunt). The curry was excellent and as good as anything we have had anywhere in the UK. I would also recommend the Glass Bottom Boat trip. Also if you stay at Dimitris you are at the right end of the resort for Lindos which we walked to one hot day and it took just 35 mins. We will definitely return to Pefkos next year but after staying at the Dimitris Apts would never go anywhere else.
Just wonderful !!

Room Tip: There are 3 apartment blocks but block 3 (where we stayed) is the newest.

We stayed at the dimitris for 2weeks at the beginning of July when we arrived we knew what to expect of the view and pool as we had seen others photos on trip advisor but we were still blown away as to how beautiful it was in real life! Apartments basic but clean and the maids were great came nearly every day which is good when you have two young kids as we did.Paid the 100 euros for air con as it was absolutely boiling while we were there and the air con was well worth the money.Now the dreaded hill it is the worst near the bakery where it is really quite steep we usually walked down and got a taxi back up for4 euros.However the taxis were on strike twice while we were there so had no choice but to climb it then, dont let it put you off ,its well worth it for the view.Our favourite restaurant to eat at was Terpsis turn right at the bottom of hill along the main road with all the bars and restaurants food was absolutely gorgeous.We also liked the cafe bar jasmine very friendly staff and had a play area for the kids so we went nearly every night for a drink. Glass bottom boat trip a must aswell captain is really friendly and kids loved it all in all a great trip and would defo return.I would certainly reccomend the dimitris studios to anyone.
