Thought this was a nice bargain holiday to Greece. Can't normally get just a flight for this price, and very decent flight times too.

Set in an idyllic location overlooking the nearby beach, the welcoming, family-run Palm Bay exudes warmth and hospitality. Boasting numerous on-site facilities and spacious, fully equipped rooms, there is sure to be something here to please all the family. Lazy days can be spent watching the waves lap the sandy shoreline from the stunning pool terrace, whilst those seeking more activity can venture into the quaint village centre just 700 metres away. This is the perfect base for families and couples in search of a relaxing holiday in the sunshine.

*I've not included transfers in the price as I never bother with them and usually either get a taxi or hire a car as that works out better normally
** Gets (mostly) good reviews on Holiday Watchdog i.e. 7/10. I've popped link in post below
*** Thanks to stuart9787 who spotted the week later ie 9th May is even cheaper (see link in post 7)

Seems a hot deal! it's actually a 2* hotel officially.
How i'd love to just be in that pool right now. Alternatively i could just step outside and roll about on the floor. Who needs hosepipes with all this rain
sounds a very good price
might be worth putting Gatwick in the title, save us northeners some time, lots of pics of the pool, doubt you will be in there in May ( unless there heated ) having said that, it is a cheap holiday.:)
Even better if you can go the week later (9th May-16th) as prices drops to £80.50 per person - book.cosmos.co.uk/pac…0-0
We've been to Rhodes in May and June time AVANTIME and the weather was lovely. If you are going July/August time it can be too much i.e. in the 40's every day. Ouch.

Nice one stuart9787; I'll add that to title / op
June/ September ideal time for me, i like to wear shorts day and night, dont get chance to do that much here!
Probably find a quite a few bars and tavernas won't be open yet as its the first week of the season!
But who cares when you can escape this crappy weather!

Agree 100%. Also been to Rhodes in May and late September/early October and weather certainly more pleasant. Regularly in low 80's during the day and still comfortable in the evening.

Went to this resort (Pefkos) about 10 years ago and was a lovely place, perhaps a bit quiet for some but suited us fine. Just a small point but the transfer is quite long if there are a few stops on the way however the scenery is good, especially driving past Lindos etc.

Good trips available including day trips to Turkey.

Yeah, if you do go, make sure you have at least 1 day out in Lindos. That is a beautiful place and a fab beach. And get a donkey taxi up the hills.
Went Pefkos last August , and going back this August. The resort for me and family is superb, family friendly nobody like other resorts trying to hassle you to go into their bars/restaurants , lovely food in all 13 restaurants we tried and some great bars and great beaches...These are all my opinions. Any questions about the resort please ask..

What about transfers from airport to resort?I saw there is a 50 miles distance (1,5 h drive) ...you can book transfers for £40 on cosmos for 2p..is it ok? or should go for a local taxi or other local transport?
Basically whats best for transfers?thanks John
John , erm not sure about local taxis/transfers etc . I always book with Thomsons after being bitten with a cheap internet firm..
But if you can get cheap with Cosmos then go for it..
The resort was so good, no crime , no hassle to my 14 year old, just about my ideal resort
just found this for a random date in july

Shuttle Transfer (£23.00 per person)
£46 Select Transfer
Private Transfer (£75.50 per person)
£151

This is a return transfer with travel republic..
Hope this helps..

Go for it , dont know how many bars/restaurants will be open in May though...will be quiet i think..Them temperatures you quoted seem low ....think it will be a little warmer than that ....

Edited by: "smithysufc" 19th Apr 2012
Yeah, it'll be decent enough weather in May ionuttd, and probably OK to have a swim too. Some bars / restaurants will be open i.e. enough to cater for the volume of visitors.

Slightly gutted I can't go. £80 each is a total snip and Rhodes is beautiful
What a deal.
Cheers Andy.

It doesnt make a differance where I travel to, to catch a flight. Im come from near bottom of cornwall via public transport .So it doesnt really matter to me.
Edited by: "leegp79" 19th Apr 2012
Rhodes is stunning, love the place and this is just somewhere to sleep at the end of the day - go for it! Evenings should be cool enough not even to need to pay for aircon...
holidayflowerchhild]pretty tight deal, cheers[/quote]
Did u manage to get it at this price... I booked for £107,price has gone up..still good deal
Anyone know how to get a cheap trip for 1 person then?
