One of the best places I've ever stayed!
Reviewed 18 September, 2021
I never leave reviews but we had such a great stay that I had to. These studios are absolutely beautiful and sparkling clean. There are many thoughtful details to make your stay as enjoyable as possible and George and Irene were both so kind throughout. Excellent value for money and I can't recommend the deluxe villas enough. We will definitely be back next time we're in Pefkos.

travel to Pekfos for a night stay and booked a room here, beautiful hidden little gem, room spotless, quick and easy check in.
only stay for one night so can only base my views on that one night stay but can not fault it would definitely recommend this little place for a few night over night stop off.
The perfect holiday

We have just returned after two relaxing weeks in Rhodes. We stayed at George Beach Studios which is based in the quiet corner of Pefkos. The accommodation met our needs well, we had room 7 on the 2nd floor. We only used the kitchen a couple of times but it was totally adequate and had all the necessary utensils and the much used coffee percolator. One morning the percolator stopped working and with 5 mins it was replaced with a new one. The room is versatile, and I think it can accommodate 3, there is a balcony and small bathroom but again it was fine for us.
The accommodation is well placed for two beautiful beaches being Lee and Kavos, the sea is so blue, crystal clear and warm. It was funny how many people were snorkelling when you could see the fish and the sea floor just by looking down, it’s marvellous. Both beaches have sun loungers to rent at 5 euros a day although there are more expensive ones that provide usb chargers, water and other extras should you wish. The beaches are sand, I can’t stress how lovely they are, there’s even the opportunity to have a massage should you wish. Everyone that had contact with us had masks and antiseptic hand rub, we felt our safety was prioritised.
The nearest restaurant to George Beach Studios is Nikolai Taverna, they have a varied menu with a few vegetarian options but not many. Several restaurants have meat free alternatives which certainly met my needs. If you’re lucky enough to be at the taverna when the baklava is just out of the oven then make sure you order it as you won’t regret doing so. There is also a small supermarket within walking distance from the accommodation or the ABC supermarket in central Pefkos will deliver, we ordered online and it was with us within a couple of hours. This is especially useful when ordering large or heavy items such as bottled water. The tap water is not for drinking. Public transport is easy to navigate and it’s an hour or so to central Rhodes. We stayed one night in Rhodes so we didn’t feel we had to rush in the 30 degree heat, from memory it was 6 euros each way and provided an opportunity to see more of the island on the journey there.
We also caught the bus to Lindos which is about 15 mins from Pefkos, here you’ll find another beautiful beach and the cliff top acropolis. It’s hilly but anyone with mobility issues has the option of getting a cab from the bus stop to the town.
Masks must be worn on public transport but not in bars, beaches or restaurants.
Pefkos meets the needs of most people, there’s the quieter side or the loud, brash pubs and bars. Most bars have swimming pools and have several large TVs showing sport, each to their own but not for me. If you want a decent beach snack pop to Mr Balls ( yeah I know), the wraps are great as is the ice coffee and he has a wealth of information about the best places to visit on the island, a really nice guy.
In Rhodes we stayed at the seriously beautiful Anastasios place, based in the centre of the Old Town, it’s air B&B, it has several rooms including a roof terrace, it’s really good value and well placed for museums, restaurants, shops etc. I recommend the vegetarian/vegan restaurant called Marouli, so flipping lovely both it’s menu, staff and positioning.
Like everywhere Rhodes is struggling due to Covid but if you can get there then do, you’ll receive a wonderful welcome and if you do stay at George Beach studios you won’t regret a minute.

My review will be my story... Me and my wife started on the left foot, in the airport when we took money from the ATM they charged 13€ taxes, then we waited half an hour for our car to arrive and in the end our choice for the car was different from what we wanted. So in the end we departed to our destination George Beach Studios. Although the check in time was 13.00,the kind lady from reception informed us that it may be possible before, like 11.00. But our flight was early in the morning, so we arrived at the hotel at 08.00,she explained us again the situation, served us with coffee and cookies, and our room was ready around 10.00. We were lucky also to receive an upgrade to a deluxe room. The lady from reception together with the lady from cleaning help us with everything we needed even information regarding the beaches, taverns and supermarkets. The room was amazing comparing to everything we saw on a raport quality/price. We had an amazing experience and for sure our holidays improved 100%. We both highly recommend this place, and for sure next time when we are coming back we will choose the same. Thank you very much! Mihai and Raluca
Lovely family place
