Summer Memories Apartments
30 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"Absolutely loved these apartments. Brilliant atmosphere here among all the guests during our stay, everybody mixed so well around the pool and in the bar in the evenings especially on Karaoke & quiz nights. These were organized by Stavros the owners son who is such a great host and everybody took part. Guests came back to the bar most nights after their evening meal in one of the many fantastic restaurants in this resort.
Plenty of beds at the pool most days, as guests often went to the beautiful beaches nearby.
We stayed in studio 42 for 3 people. Studio was quite spacious and had a small balcony with side sea view. Bathroom was smallish and shower cubicle was smaller than normal but was ok for us, however might be tight for a big person. Dont know if all rooms are the same. Rooms were cleaned every day except Sundays and towels and sheets were changed often enough during our 2 weeks stay.
I liked these apartments and this resort and would definately return and would recommend to anyone."

"Thoroughly enjoyed staying at these apartments. Fantastic apartments, well maintained, and very friendly owners made these apartments a first class place to be for my holiday. Stavros, the owners son was a fantastic host and was at the bar most evenings, daytime being covered by his dad, Vasilis who was also a very friendly host. His mum and another English lady did the bar at daytime and were very friendly. They must really enjoy what they do, and this was why I believe many guests I met returned to these apartments. The atmosphere was fantastic, everyone seemed to mix very well around the pool & in the evenings and enjoyed Stavros's Karaoke and Quiz nights. Most people returned to the apartments in the evening after their evening meal at the many wonderful restaurants in this resort. The 'crack' was good and throughout the stay everybody seemed to get on and mix so well, English, Scottish, Welsh & Northern Irish during my stay in August. I would definately recommend these apartments and this resort to anyone, and I will definately return. I have stayed at Pefkos 3 times and these are the best apartments yet."

A special place in Greece.
"Second visit to the Summer Memories.
Booked directly with very friendly owner via their website, which is very easy to find! Alternatively, you can go via Cosmos or Kosmar holidays, with the flight and bus transfer included. If you choose a taxi transfer this will cost you 46 euros each way.
The accomodation is in two blocks and all the rooms in the older block have been renovated this year. So, although I was in the older block, the room was brand new inside, with a lovely little kitchen area, a shower over a half bath (with shower curtain!) and gorgeous views. Air conditioning in the studios is 50 euros per week this year, more for the apartments.
The pool bar is open all day from early morning serving breakfasts etc, until the last customer leaves at night, and has plenty of comfortable seats, internet access and a book swap.
The Summer Memories is in an enviable location, just off the main road, although there is no road noise at all.
Pefkos has three gorgeous beaches, and the apartments are 5-10 minutes walk from any of them.
The main road has numerous excellent restaurants, all with good quality food and good service. Take your pick!
There are plenty of bars, some of which cater for families with young children by having a designated playground area. We love the Geordie Bar (Bambooze) on the road to the main beach, owned and run by Eric and Carol."

"Brilliant place - beach, tavernas and supermarkets all within easy walking distance. Try dennis's next door, food is superb, real nice family.
Lindos is within easy reach either on the bus or taxi.
Summer Memories is a wonderful place, so clean. Vassilis and his family are so friendly and his bbq is great. We have been here for 4 years and have already booked for next year. We have also found Kosmar to be the better tour operator to Summer Memories. "

"My boyfriend and I enjoyed an extremely warm and friendly stay at the Summer Memories apartments. We were concerned that it might be too quiet considering we are both 25, but the town had enough going on to keep us occupied.
After each night before bed we were entertained by Stavros the barman/tour guide and his lovely girlfriend with a small nightcap. I think "shot" was his favourite word!
The room was basic, but had everything to suit our needs. It was cleaned daily by the cheerful cleaning lady. You could ask for air-conditioning for a little extra but it was well worth it. The price was very reasonable overall and good for a young couple who can't spend a fortune on the top hotels.
The town of Pefkos was perfect - we had a wonderful meal every night, and enjoyed the fantastic beaches during the day. We found a small beach with not too many loungers on it where we spent most of the time relaxing which had a small beach cafe with friendly owners.
We hired a car and travelled around the island one day which was great fun and saw the amazing sights. We were pleasantly surprised by the island.
We'd definitely go back as we had such a fantastic time - great entertainment, great beaches, friendly locals, wonderful hotel and a very warm welcome.

Laid back and friendly
"The 1hr tansfer was worth it. Pefkos is a small village with enough restaurants to eat at a different one every night of a 14 night holiday and only a 6euro taxi rde away from Lindos (worth a visit).
Summer Memories apts is set in 2 blocks. We had a ground floor apt for 3 containing 1 double and 1 single beds, sheets and towels changed every other day. Kitchenette was adequate 2 elec rings ( fun figuring out how to do toast!), fridge, kettle, sink. Plenty of clothes storage, air con ( payable locally approx 50euro/week, depends on size of apt) generally comfortable with no frills. You hardly need to self cater as you can get a monster breakfast and many other dishes to suit the engish and greek pallate at fair prices.
Set just back off the main rd where you can find a wealth of shops and restaurants, but far enough away to be quiet. The fantastic staff Jorge, Vasillas and Stavros ( who has the most clear Mancunian accent for a Greek) are helpful and friendly, tend the bar throughout the day and night. The bar is central to the appartments next to the ample sized pool with air hockey and pool tables to keep the kids busy.
A 10 min stroll will get you to either of 2 lovely sandy beaches.
Take care in the main summer months as it can get very very hot, we experienced over 40 C in the shade dropping to mid 30s at night!!
We are definately going back!!!"

"I searched the internet and was lucky enough to come across Summer Memories, and after sending an e-mail of enquiry which was answered really quickly, I booked the accommodation. I wasn't disappointed.
The apartment was clean and spacious, overlooking the pool & the sea (albeit in the distance!). The pool was small but had plenty of sunbeds and parasols - which were definitely needed. Although I didn't pre-book the air-con, after a couple of days we arranged this for 60 eurosâ per week. The maid cleaned the apartment every day and was very friendly. Vasilis (the owner) and his 2 sons, George & Stavros, ran the bar and were English speaking, entertaining and great to chat to.
The food from the bar was lovely and my daughter loved the nutella crepes which she ate almost every day! The two beaches were within easy walking distance, as were all the bars and restaurants - yet without being at all noisy at night.
I think Pefcos is a perfect resort for young families and people who don't like to see lager louts falling off the pavements everywhere. There are no ticket touts or beach sellers trying to grab your attention so you can walk anywhere without being harassed ... what a novelty when holidaying abroad these days!

"We just got back from 2 week stay at Summer Memories, George and Stavros (best Manchester accent in Greece) were brilliant. The rooms were spotless and cleaned daily by a very friendly old lady.
The resort at first impression looks quiet but comes alive when its dark. Our best restaurant was Hellas Garden and pub was Pefkos by Night, both to the left when leaving apts.
Only niggle was the transfer time on arrival from airport for Newcastle flight we did not get into our room for around 6am."

"Well Iâve been to Rhodes now 3-4 times, and stayed at these apartments all the time, its one of the nicest places you can ever go to.
All the staff are friendly the pools well away from the main road, the food in Pefkos is fantastic the best selection of excellent food anywhere Iâve been in Greece (and Iâve bin everywhere!), Iâd advise you to go to the terpsis and tsambikos restaurants, you may have to wait a little bit for the terpis but its worth the wait believe me, its around a five minute walk to the beach but id advise to go the left of the hotel and go to the smaller beach as its well secluded and a nice little beach to relax on.
The owner of summer memories vasslis is a very nice man, who will cater to your every need, his wife may sometimes be there and his son George may also be there if heâs back from university, please feel free to ask them for advice on where to go and what to do, as they will guide you to little hidden treasures on the island like where the 2 seas meet and butterfly valley (simply amazing)
Go to summer memories and you wonât be disappointed.
