Gennadi is the best place what I've ever seen and visited. I spent there 2 vacation and I am going there for free time in this year. people, sea, beach, food everything is perfect. Mainly contentment and no stress there.
Reading comments during my lunch break and it brought back so many memories. I worked there for the best summer of my life in about 1990 for Grecian holidays. So long ago now but such wonderful memories. Manolis bar, backgammon in Socs, crazy nights in lindos by night. The most fun group of reps and locals anywhere. To jeff and louise (Jenny may hols) Lisa, Hazel Tina and all at Grecian, Sally (airtours) and many others who gave me so many fantastic memories...where are we all now...older buty no wiser probably!! Yassou!
I would like some feedback from people who have stayed in Pefkos with teenagers. Our boys will be 18 & 16 when we travel to Greece in Jun/Jul. They enjoy exploring eating out, some walking, culture & beaches. Any suggestions? Is there anything for them to do at night after dinner if they are not too tired from a busy day? Thanks.
Cut a long story very short. Me and my wife had suffered 2 misscariages and were having the worst year of our lives. Whilst on holiday we decided to make the trip up to the top of the mountain. 2 Months later we're expecting twins. Could just say it's luck but some really strange things happened on that holiday. Would recommend the trip to anyone, even those who aren't trying for a baby, the view from the top is the best view i've ever seen, and I've been to some beautiful places !......
I and my family bought a house in Gennadi in 2006, we have been welcomed by the locals and although it is a holiday home we are treated the same as the locals, we would recommend it to anyone visiting Rhodes. A real Greek village with all the charm and friendliness Greece has to offer.
The best resort in Rhodes for relaxing holidays!
I have a little house in fanes between the village and the local beach. I visit (from New York) once a year to visit Fanes and firends. Fanes is a beautiful place especially in the summer (beach) and in the fall during the harvest of grapes and olives.
We visited Tholos on the last week of October. We were pretty much the only tourists in the village. We stayed in Sunlight Apartments and Costas and Irene were fantastic hosts, good food and the grounds / pool were beautifully kept. Tholos is a little out of the way and at this time of year only the tavernas were open. The one in the centre of the old village was superb but beware; the portions are enourmous. Buses run irregularly to Rhodes town. The old town is well worth a visit. Its like a living museum with fortified walls, shops, hotels and restaurants as well as lots of history. The cafes and restaurants near the minaret are outstanding.
Rhodes and Tholos are well worth a late season visit.
Just returned from Pefkos, our second visit there. We normally holiday in June/July so October was late for us, and we were unsure how the weather would be and whether the resort would be still up and running as they all wind down for the winter months. We stayed at the Pefkos Beach Hotel (2nd time) and had a fab time again. The Hotel was as we remebered ..very welcoming, nothing too much trouble and the staff great. It is nice to find a Hotel which is still run by a family offering a very simple laid back holiday for all. The staff turnover at the Hotel is virtually nil and it was nice to see familiar faces all around. The resort was in winding down mode but that did not mean everywhere was closed, in fact most restaurants, bars and shops in resort were all open if a little quiet, however that suited us fine. The weather was mixed although we had our fair share of sunny days and the one heavy storm was a welcome relief and over very quickly. Don't go in October if you want wall to wall sunshine and it did get chilly some nights but during the day it was very pleasant indeed. We will be going back to Pefkos and the Pefkos Beach Hotel I am sure. Knowing that we will have a great time.
Stayed in Lardos last year, and after a visit to Pefkos decided it was the place to stay this year. Had a fantastic 10 days staying at the Island Blue which was one of the nicest holiday resort hotels I've ever stayed in. Three pools, great bar and pool bar and really nice restaurant. Brilliant friendly staff for who nothing was too much trouble. Spoiled for choice at night but we particularly liked The Rock Garden bar. As for eating, take your pick. We had a couple of fabulous meals in Enigma, and also enjoyed Annexis, Zorbas and Spitaki.If there wern't so many posts saying how good it is I would keep quiet about it , but the words out, so if you're undecided where to go, try Pefkos. I doubt you'll be disappointed. Finally although a little expensive An evening meal on a roof top restaurant in Lindos is a must. Can see us retuning many more times.
