Overall this was a pretty good 3 star all inclusive. Upon arrival we were booked in very quickly & efficiently by the reception staff. Our room was on the 1st floor, overlooking the car park at the front of the hotel. This didn't really bother us as we received the late afternoon sun. Unfortunately our room did overshadow the delivery entrance, meaning 'wake up calls' were given for free, every day around 8.00am.
The corridor to our room was a little dated, however upon entering the room it was clean & had ample space for 3 of us. The towels & bed sheets are changed 3 times a week, with the maids cleaning the room every day. Our bathroom had a 1930's celebrity mirror, complete with bulb surrounds, however it was clean & the shower gave really hot water each time we used it. The bed's were pretty solid however an extra pillow each, found in the wardrobe did help the beds.
The restaurant was fairly standard, with 2 meat dishes, a fish dish and accompaniments at lunch and tea time. The breakfast's were pretty good, it does include chips as an option, but the rest all tasted pretty good. I'd advise going half an hour to an hour later than when the dining hall first opens. We ate at 1.30 at lunch & 7.30 on an evening, we didn't really have to queue for anything and all the food is replenished quickly. The hall is very busy if you go straight in the moment it opens.
Saturday involves a BBQ for tea, with Kebabs and burgers on offer. The Burger, with Feta cheese, Lettuce and Tzatziki in a bread roll was excellent.
The pool has plenty of sunbeds, we didn't have to wait to acquire any, with plenty of shade being provided by the trees surrounding the area. We turned up to the pool around 9.30/10 each morning and there was always plenty of space available. The pool bar was useful, as it worked on a self service principle.
The main bar does get busy, as having 1 barman serve 100/200 guests would do. The range of drinks is pretty expansive, the 'house' cocktails of Blue Lagoon & Cuba Libre are great. Watch out for the amount of rum put into the drinks, at one point we had a 'Rum Tops' with 4 inches of Rum, to a half inch of coke.
The service by all staff was good, everyone appeared friendly and we didn't feel we'd been neglected at any point.
The hotel is half way up a hill (150/200 metres), but there is a bus stop at the bottom which costs €2.20 one way to Rhodes town or Faliraki. Rhodes town is definitely worth a look, Faliraki was abit of a let down, there are not many bars left here, they have all been replaced by tattoo shops & 'Foot massaged by Fish' shops.
There are a couple of Bars outside the hotel, Mike's bar is directly opposite which is open until 4/5 in the morning. The Cafe Medousa bar is at the bottom of the hill the hotel is situated on. This is open until 2 in the morning, and is €1 cheaper than Mike's bar on almost everything. The double Captain Morgans and coke for €4 was a hit, as was the free shots your given throughout the night.
We ate out 2 nights, once at the Medousa restaurant underneath the Bar, and once across the road from this. Both meals were excellent, with a starter and main meal coming in around €11 per person.
Overall we enjoyed the stay here, the hotel is a 3 star all-inclusive. What we received was a far better quality than what we have experienced in the past. I would recommend this hotel in the future.
