The arrival maybe was not the best (we had booked a TWIN but then got a double) but all was sorted out quickly by the staff and the 1 week holidays could begin.
The location is top in many ways! It’s close to the airport which means a short ride at arrival, it is close to Faliraki (10 min), close to Rhodes town (15 min), close to the next fish spa (do it!) and situated directly at the beach and it has a bus stop at the entrance where busses take you wherever you want. Car rental in the hotel is also possible and uncomplicated, but be quick otherwise the cheap ones are gone.
Foodwise the hotel did not disappoint. After one week I was still not bored by the food and believe the quality was good (I am vegetarian so can’t say anything about the meat but it looked tasty). The fish was ok, the salads, deserts and fruit selection more than satisfying. The waiters spoke every possible language, were quick, mostly uninterested in the guests but did an ok job (as was most of the staff…. More passion, guys!).
Great Beach, great water quality, next to the hotel you can also rent all possible water sports equipment if you fancy some action. Beds hard as stone and slept like one, great!
Cons (obviously always longer than the pros :-)
Here I definitely have to point out the animators. Worst animators ever (not that I have any experience with that but what these guys did can not be the goal), especially the two Italian guys who were totally unmotivated (apart of when it came to dance the village dance they made some good moves), didn’t even seem to remember me or greet me after one week though we spoke various times… The girl was really annoying, almost forcing guests to dance, you couldn’t refuse (which I did) otherwise she’d ask every 5 min!
The drinks were for most guests included (not ours as we had booked unfortunately a cheaper package) so the cocktails weren’t of great quality (in fact I tried to get drunk but did not manage. Even after 5 cocktails I was still sober but ended with some high blood pressure because of all the sugar…)… also for the bar staff: A smile from time to time does not hurt guys!
Rooms: Ok, Air-con pretty loud, not the latest interior… but all in all good sized rooms and all working well. THOUGH: the cleaning ladies could put some more effort in their cleaning, it was never really clean (bathroom, bedding…).
All in all a smooth touristy stay with no highlights really but also no problems… ok for a week of relax. Would I go again? No, once is enough! Next time I'm going to Greece I'd love to meet some Greek people not only Italians and Russians, but for a touristy all inclusive week it does the job!
If you are thinking to book the Pegasos you should also check for the Sea Beach Resort next door, it looks much nicer and the hot animator greeted me the one time we went over there as we were best friends!
