I stayed at the Island Blue this September with my husband and daughter. We had such a fantastic time we are hoping to return next year! (I just read the last review and was surprised as I couldn't fault it) Hotel was clean, food in the restaurant was excellent and all the staff were very friendly. I would recommend doing the greek night which is on every sunday evening! If you are thinking of going to Pefkos you should definitely consider staying here!

I love Pefkos. a quiet resort on the whole but sufficient choice of bars & tavernas. Thankfully no noisey nightclubs & whilst catering to a predominantly British clientele, not a greasy spoon resort.

Have previously stayed in Pefki Islands for many excellent holidays and always found the standards extremely high. Saw the Island Blue being built and have previously used the wonderful pools and so this year decided to upgrade to B&B at the hotel, staying at the end of September/start of October.

We were so pleased that we made this decision. At the risk of repeating what others have said, we got a fantastic room in the block that we wanted thanks to the hard work of the wonderful Katerina who has always helped us with our requests in the past and must have a really difficult job to meet everyone's requests with the number of repeat customers that both the hotel and the apartments attract.

We were transported from reception via the golf buggy and the maid was on hand to make us feel very welcome. She was excellent throughtout our stay as have been all the maids on our previous visits. The room was vast and well equiped and the bathroom was excellent, with such a massive shower, that was a real pleasure to be in.

Breakfast was excellent, you could sit where you wanted and there was a good choice of both hot and cold food and you could make up all sorts of combinations and so I really enjoyed that. We had several evening meals in the restaurant and again the food was of a high standard, I would really recomment the Lamb Kleftiko!! My one criticism and this is being really picky would be the vegetables, the oven potatoes and rice were excellent but the 3rd element could be improved upon. Staff at both breakfast and dinner were very efficient and polite.

We also attended the Greek night, not usually our cup of tea but we were so taken the first time that we had to repeat the experience the following week and this was interesting as we experienced it one week outside and one week inside as it rained on the Sunday as the weather had turned. It was good to see that some items of food were changed so that it wasn't an identical menu if you went more than once. I also think that it appealed to us as it wasn't professionals putting on the show. George the lead musician has done maintenance jobs in both the Studios and the hotel room for us and Costas the lead dancer has previously served us our breakfast and lunch at the Pefki Islands but please don't get me wrong, this is no amateur production, it was an excellent show all round and people did want to get involved!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have already booked again for next year. We know from experience that the hotel and apartments next door fill up with repeat bookings very quickly, so didn't want to risk being disappointed.

Room Tip: All rooms have pool views. Some 1st floor rooms can be approached by a slope.

We highly recommend this hotel! Large, clean and modern family rooms. Great service and friendly atmosphear. Nice pool area and several beaches around the corner. Pefkos is a relaxing place with a broad supply of restaurants. We had high expectations - and the staff met them or even in some cases exceeded them.

I can't really describe how happy I was at the Island Blue. We had been to the neighbouring Pefki Islands Resort 8 times before and loved it, but decided to move on to the Island Blue this time (both are part of the same accommodation and are managed excellently).

From arrival to departure nothing could have been better. All of the rooms have a lovely outlook over the superb swimming pools. The grounds are spotless and beatutifully maintained. Maid service was brilliant. The breakfast buffet was outstanding, lots of changes and variation during the holiday and everything cooked to perfection. Service was superb.

The hotel has a Greek Night. Ordinarily I would avoid things like this (aged 55 and a half) but decided to try it and it was EXCELLENT! I had assumed that the 'Greek entertainers' would be a professional troupe going from hotel to hotel, however the bazouki player was the maintenance man of the hotel and the lead dancer was the pool barman. This made it a really good and friendly night as they both recognised and remembered us from previous visits.

So we have re-booked for next year already.
