Pefki Islands Resort
Pefki Islands Resort is a relaxed hotel that’s right next to a sandy beach. It has a good-sized pool with a sun terrace surrounding it, as well as a second pool that’s slightly quieter. Both pools have separate children’s sections – and one pool has its own swim-up bar! The resort has an on-site restaurant that overlooks the pool and serves up huge portions for every meal. You can choose between different cuisines, though the local dishes are best. Steps from the hotel lead straight down onto Pefkos’ sandy beach, while the town centre is a short five-minute walk away. There’s also a nearby bus stop that takes you into Lindos and Rhodes Town. Guests here can also use the facilities at the sister hotel of the Island Blue.
