"Stayed for 11 nights at the Lindia Thalassa in a 2-bed apartment, top floor, lovely seaview. The apartment was very spacious. The actual complex is lovely and well set out. Pool bar and surroundings clean and everything nearby - didn't have to walk very far for anything. The beach is a very short walk away. Plenty to do in Pefkos, plenty of places to eat and drink. The down side with Lindia is the price of the air conditioning which you can't do without, especially in August with very high temperatures. This takes a large chunk out of your holiday money.
Would definitely return though."

Fabulous, relaxing, friendly - one of of best holidays ever, can't wait to return.
"Cannot fault the holiday in any way. Possibly have only one criticism - advertisement stated air conditioning. Yes there was air conditioning installed in apartment but only able to use on payment of 65 euros! The beach was great, water crystal clear. Our apartment was very nicely decorated and furnished. We were fortunate enough to have apartment over looking the bay. Wonderful views, breakfast on verandah. Would definitely return to this Hotel."

Best holiday ever...
"If you want a great holiday this is were you want to come! The people are so friendly there and the service is great. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are nice and spacious. I didn't want to come back, i enjoyed it so much. You can go scoba diving which i did, you can go to lindos, you can go to rhodes town, there is a lot you can do. If you are either a pool side person or a beach person, its the ideal place. The pool is lovely and you only have to walk down about 52 steps and you are at the beach. The weather is gorgeous (so so hot). I would go back there any day. The entertainment at night is good and the restaurants are really nice. The best place for food is either Enigma or Collseum. "

"We chose Rhodes to celebrate out pearl anniversary, and we picked well with pefkos, wonderful hotel accomodation,so clean and light and ,and to top it off we made some friends there and we are booked to go back this oct 09 with them. LOOK OUT LOLOS, we hope you are running the bar this year,we are coming back!! do you remember Tony on the bar with you dancing ?Em an Jac we are sure will be life long friends as they are two in a million. cant wait girls lol.
we missed the walks in the olive groves that most islands in greece have ,you cant walk anywhere really ,have to rely on transport.
the down side were the extras to pay ie 8 euros each to ensure you sat together on the plane going home.and you felt obliged to pay in case you were spilt up.book you trips down the road in the travel agents its cheaper or hire a car.
Rhodes was fun, went to a bar(cant remember the name, hubby asked for a lrg beer,thinking it would be a pint,out comes a huge glass wellie boot,took ages to drink it but hey had to be done! lindos is a must so beautiful , glass bottom boat good too."

"I stayed here with my boyfriend and daughter for two weeks in September/October 2008 and loved everything about it! It would definately be teh perfect place to go for a family holiday.
The apartments are clean and spacious (we stayed in a two bedroom). The pool is a good size and I loved the swim up pool bar and cocktails. Staff at the apartments are so friendly and helpful. It was my daughter's 8th birthday and the receptionist helped me to organise a birthday cake, which was one of the nicest cakes I have ever had! Bar staff are equally as friendly with all the family.
Location is good with it being so close to the beach (although the beach is tiny and expensive for the sunbeds). Its about a 5 minute walk to the restaurants and bars, with quite a selection. At the end of the road is a Chinese/Indian restaurant which was lovely, and there are lots of Greek restaurants too. The cocktail bars are all child friendly, many have play areas outside.

"Having just returned from a week here i must say what a 1st class complex this is,
Everything is so well maintained the pool is cleaned every morning and is spotless the food served at the pool bar is excellent and very reasonable and all the staff very friendly and helpful,
Our room was spotless and well equipted although we didnt cater for ourselves at all the only minus point was we requested a sea view and double bed but got twin room with pool view but this was down to our tour operator and not the hotel itself.
The beach was clean plenty of sunbeds and clear blue water ideal when the temperature is in the 30s.Just a short stroll was a great selection of bars and restaurants the Terapis being our favourite and again such a warm welcome,
We will definately be coming back here again in May10 and i honestly cant wait it was the best holiday we have ever been on,
Our sincere thanks to everybody for making it such a great time"

holiday and honeymoon all in one
"We made our minds up to get married in Rhodes once we had taken one look at st paul's bay! Our next decision was to stay in pefkos at the lindia Thalassa and it did not dissapoint. The room was excellent, clean and modern. The pool area was really good and it's only a couple of min's walk to the beach! You will not be dissapointed with Lindia Thalassa."

"we stayed at the lindia thalass studios and what a great place it was, we stayed in block B which had a fanstatic view over the sea, the studio was excellent so much space and the maids came in daily to clean etc, the beach was on our door step! and the beach is lovely sand and clear water, the complex is close to the main strip of pepkos, the people who work at the lindia thalassa take pride in there complex making sure everything is to the highest standard.
the staff are very friendly and make you feel welcome, the pool is lovely it was a bit chilly in october but you would expect this anyway.
we hired a car and done some travelling around the island. i would recommend the lindia thalassa to anyone who is looking for a chilled out holiday and to stay in a clean well looked after place.

Far to British
"Nothing Greek about apartments or resort what so ever,Pefkos has a couple of traditional restaurants ,Artemis Gardens, Anixis Taverna. ,the resort is full of tacky gift shops, karaoke bars and cocktail bars showing football matches on wide screen t.v in a haze of cigarette smoke . . Accomadation average with basic cleaning standards,and furnishings made of concrete ,including bed, have visited a few of the Greek islands and have stayed in better,rowdy families coming back 2 in morning drunk and generally being loud.It was lovely though being so close to beach. Hired car from Marathon in resort toured the island, Lindos lovely as is Rhodes town,and went too some lovely sandy beaches. May return to Rhodes but not this resort or apartments,just to British!! "

"just got back from here. thought it was great!
the hotel was very clean, saw them clean the pool and the area every morning. they also cleaned our room everyday with fresh sheets and towels.
all the staff were really nice. food at the hotel was good and filled you up.
i would recommed going down to 'la pizza' and 'egnima' for food at the end of the strip and 'eclipse bar'!
had some very good places to eat along the strip. all in all i had a lovely holiday here with my sister who is 19 and i am 17. would deffinatly go back. and also pefkos is the hottest place on the island!"

"What a beautiful resort. We went as a large family group, including children aged between 11 and 16.
The rooms are very clean with air con, but tha did cost extra for the 2 weeks( but with the temperatures a necessity) so budget at least 200 euros extra for that.
The pool area and bar area are lovely, with absolutly teriffic staff who will keep you well entertained.
Staff are very friendly and make you feel very welcome.
Supermarket on site, and very reasonable. pefkos town itself is about a 10 min walk from the block, but a very peasant walk, and you pass bars on your way into town.
plenty of restauants and tavernsa to eat and drink, there wasnt one that we would not have considered visiting.
Overall a wonderful holiday and will definatly visit againl

"I have just got back from an amazing two week holiday in Pefkos and was very sad to leave. Lyndia Thlassa was a great hotel, the rooms were spotless and big with an amazing ocean view from our balcony. The hotel provided entertainment almost everynight with greek night once a week. The pool was big and not too crowded on most day's. The waitors were fantastic costos, stavros and lollos made sure you were entertained while you were just getting a drink. The beach is just steps away and with it's beautiful sea it's worth payng for a sunbed. Overall the holiday was fantastic and I really can't wait to go back."
