We arrived back from Rhodes yesterday and had a great time there!
Arrived in Faliraki for 1 week -Stayed in Sun Palace hotel Got there 5am and airtours reps expected us to attend welcome meeting at 10am I DONT THINK SO!
We were all inclusive and food was great, Entertainment was a laugh, the staff were very friendly, Bingo every night and games throughout the day. The only bad side is you can't flush your tissue down toilet, beds uncomfortable, and mosquitoes!
We took a few excursions and booked across the road from our hotel at Sofias Travel which was the best and cheapest places -The greek man and australian lady were very helpful
We done the glassbottom boat trip and seen Kalithea, Anthony quinn bay etc but water is very cold in October so don't be like me and jump in to snorkel! Even though there are plenty of fish to see.
Also went on boat trip to Lindos -You have to do this, beach is very clear, and walking up to the acropolis is great for views!
Took a trip to Turkey-marmaris which was very very nice, went on a big ship -one hour in sea from Rhodes town, Lovely free tour on bus once you arrive. You get to visit turkish delight factory and gold centre. You then get about 4 hrs shopping in the bazaar which is cheap as long as you haggle!
We also went to Rhodes old town which was also good for shopping -the new town shops wasnt open because we went on sunday but plenty to see in old town! Lovely harbour
Don't you feel sorry for all the little cats?
All the beaches are very clear, the closest part of the beach to our hotel was very pebbly, the weather was very nice until we left, it was also quiet as it was the end of season -
All in All, very relaxing and enjoyable holiday, great time of the year to go if you want a more relaxed atmosphere with not many clubbers and children running around!
