“2nd Time there and Still want to go Back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2011

This was the second time me and my partner have been to this destination and its still the best place and with the most beutiful views for as far the eye can see...

The place was ran very well, always clean and tidy. The 2 Brothers were really nice very chatty some days and always there to give advice.

Rooms with a view were to die for, it stated all rooms with sea view but wow never exspected anytging like what we got.

Will most definately be going back and cant see anything that would change our minds.

Keep up the Good Work Lads....

I stayed at Dimitris with a friend for a week. The studio apartments were sparse but clean and well kept. The pool and bar area were also well maintained. Unfortunately the two caretakers (brothers?) did not just "keep themselves to themselves" as others have mentioned here - I would say they were downright rude, and any interaction whatsoever was a challenge. I didn't expect long conversations but I did expect more than shrugged shoulders and/or grunts when asking direct questions (such as recommendations for food in the village or when the holiday rep would visit next etc - nothing challenging!). I felt like an enormous hindrance even ordering a beer at the bar. I would not stay again for this reason - once again I didn't want or expect to be best friends but common courtesy (or even acknowledgement) would not have gone amiss.

My husband and I are just back from two weeks at the Dimitris Studios and we loved the place!

The views are just amazing and can be enjoyed from the pool, the pool bar and from all studios as they all face out over the bay. The pool and bar area are stunning, much higher than a 3 star rating in our opinion. We ate at the pool bar everyday for lunch, the food was lovely and there was a lot to choose from, we also didn't find it any more expensive than prices in pefkos village.

We were in block 1 beside the pool on the first floor. The view was just gorgeous from our balcony and there was no problem with noise from the pool or bar during the day or at night.

The studios are fairly basic but they are immaculately clean and we had everything we needed for our holiday. As people have said air conditioning is a must in the summer months, we had factored in the 50 euros a week to our budget and 10 euros a week for the safety deposit box.

We found the owners to be friendly enough, especially if you made the effort to learn some greek words. As others have said they are quiet and hardworking brothers.

The climb back up the hill every night was a bit of a challenge and we are fairly fit and in our 30s but it was so worth it! Gave us a laugh and we did it every night even though there were taxis available.

We saw various other apartments around pefkos during our holiday and we would definitely choose Dimitris Studios again when we go back to rhodes in the future.

The bus stop to Lindos and Rhodes is just up from the apartments on the main road or reception will call you a taxi, 8 euros to lindos, or plenty of taxis usually at the rank at the bottom of the hill so a great base to explore from.

Pefkos and Lindos are wonderful and Dimitris Studios is an ideal place to stay for a relaxing and wonderful holiday. Our best holiday in years!

Have just returned from a wonderful holiday staying at the Dimitris Apartments. I read quite a few reviews about them and found them extremely useful and very true! Check in is seamless, you give him your name and he gives you the key - we were in the room with a cold beer (approx 3Euro) from the bar within 5 mins! We stayed in the first block on the second floor and our jaws dropped to the floor as we went out onto the balcony. Beautiful pool area and gardens as well as the very modern bar/restaurant area but then the view down the mountain was amazing. (Even more breathtaking when its sunset).

The dreaded hill down into the town is not bad at all and we found the supermarket with the fab bakery was cheaper than the others in town. We did get taxi home on most nights at a cost of 4 euro but we did walk back up the hill a couple of afternoons. Its not too bad but there is no shade, make sure you have a bottle of water with you and take it easy - you will be home within 15mins.

Prices in pefkos are fairly typical of prices at home although we did pay 2.35 E for a loaf of bread. British essentials were quite expensive so if you intend to have the odd meal in (we had a cooked breakfast on our balcony every morning) then take what you can with you, ie tea, coffee, sachets of sauce etc. The aircon is a must in your room and worth every penny of the 50E a week, something I had discovered on here and therefore budgeted for.

The brothers do keep themselves to themselves and aren't really up to conversation but to be honest, that suits me.

We followed other peoples advice on restaurants and went to Enigma (slightly disappointing for the price but lovely location). Colliseum is well worth a visit (would recommend the greek plate). Pefkos Central is a basic restaurant run by a greek family serving authentic greek food - 3 courses 7.90E but they also threw in garlic bread and ouzo shots - I would recommend the beef stifado, it was delicious. Drinks prices are roughly the same as England but you can get deals on cocktails before 9pm.

My wife and I have just returned from a 2 week holiday staying at the Dimitris Apartments and I can honestly say that we had an excellent time.
The pool area and the gardens are gorgeous as are the views over the whole of Pefkos,Lardos and beyond.Must be the best views in Pefkos.
The pool area is immaculate and the restaurant / bar are very modern with good seating and eating facilities.The choice of food was good as was the quality and price.
Pefkos is a typical holiday village with an excellent choice of restaurants,2 beaches and a couple of bars.This is not a resort for the young,better to head to Faliraki but if you want a leisurely dinner and watch the sunset then Pefkos could be for you.
Before coming to the Dimitris Apartments we had read that the owners keep themselves to themselves but I feel some more interaction towards the holidaymakers would not go amiss.
The only downside with the apartments is the hill.If you have young children it could be unsuitable as there are no pavements from the apartments to the bakery and it is a fairly steep hill to climb late in the evening.When we were there all taxis were on strike for 8 days so I suppose the hill kept us fairly fit.The cost of a taxi from the bottom of the hill to the apts is 4Euros.
All in all,we had a fantastic holiday, apartments were excellent,views and gardens are fabulous and if you go,find the small beach in Pefkos and eat in Kavos Taverna,you will not find a better location to eat lunch or dinner.Have a fab time.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the 2nd or 3rd floors for even better views or overlooking the pool as the com...
