“So far so good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

Just got here yesterday, and so far it's been fine( apart from the weather) lovely and clean. Food ok, and served waitress style.. As I say.. So far so good...there's no TV or hair dryer, but we knew that beforehand, and it's no great hardship.. Everywhere looks nice and clean. Never heard any noise at all last night. Will update later...

Just come back from our 1st visit of 3 holidays this year 2014 to the Afroditi we have been going to the Afroditi for 25+ Years. This is a Family run hotel and very friendly hotel Haroula who is looks after the hotel accommodation and her husband Spiros who looks after the bar area are very friendly and helpful. You can get nice bar snacks and you get a discount if you are a hotel guest also the same for the restaurant attached to the hotel which serves nice meals. The pool area is run by Afroditi who does great bar snacks especially her fruit salad once again very friendly. I have read some comments on TripAdvisor from guests who stayed at the Alfoditi about the breakfast being basic/boiled egg large white bap ham and cheese I have found that OK you can get a cooked breakfast at a cost. Other comments on TripAdvisor about the staff not being friendly and sullen this comment could not be more untrue. Little Spiros the serves breakfast and bar snacks until afternoon is very funny also barman Noufris at evenings all I can say if you don’t talk to the staff you will not to get to know how friendly they are. Other comment no body on the reception this is a small family run hotel the reception and bar area is all one. There is a bell on the reception for attention I have seen no problem it this area, People go back to this hotel year after year cant wait for next 2 week holiday all I can say a great friendly hotel and a lot of guest go back and back every year.

Beautiful hotel located right on the sea front. Stayed here a number of times and the quality and service really is top notch. The bar snacks in the hotel bar or pool bar are very good and reasonably priced and the restaurant is always excellent. The pool area is always clean and tidy and open all day. The rooms are light and airy and there is a lift too. Some rooms have a sea view. Reception offer bureau de change which is helpful and they keep your key when you go out so no chance of losing it on a boozy night out.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are lovely but can be a bit noisy if you want an early night

Great resort but the hotel was lacking in many areas--except it's position. Staff were surly, perhaps end of season itis?

The extras - air-con, fridge and safe were a shock--should have been included in price.

The restaurant attached to hotel (at end of road) was very good and the staff there were really friendly, serving great food.
Hardly a "kalemera" or smile from those running the store below.

Breakfasts in the hotel were "bloating". Huge white powdered baps processed meats/cheese and the inevitable BOILED EGGS--if I see another one I'll cluck.
Where do they get the idea Brits like boiled eggs EVERY morning.There was no variety at all. A simple buffet type breakfast would have been good.

Stayed on many Greek isles in similar hotels where the service & friendliness have made up for other shortcomings---sadly not here. A real shame as the position of the hotel saved the holiday for us.

Room Tip: Sea facing rooms very good--even tho' on road--very little noise at night.

Just returned from a week at the Afrodite and we did have a wonderful holiday, however, this hotel we chose was quite mediocre and our week was saved 100% only by its fantastic location. Its set right on the beach and our Sea View Room could not have been nearer and the views were amazing.

The Hotel did not fulfil its promise of being a friendly hotel - indeed, the staff and I guess the management (who never did introduce themselves I'm just guessing they were) were quite surly and miserable - even in the shop they apparently owned under the hotel. We weren't made to feel welcome at any time, not even at check-in. No one was ever around on reception, the bar staff were quite sullen and the only life was the TV and perhaps the Pool bar lady. Just no enthusiasm or energy at all, or even a smile.

We were very disappointed with the quality of the breakfast (we booked B&B as we like eating around) this consisted of a table-served massive processed white bread roll, packet toast, processed cheese slice and processed ham slice with orange squash. Could have had a nice buffet table with maybe some fruit & yoghurt? We had this for a couple of days then gave up and walked the hundred yards into the village to enjoy a good fresh fry-up. We did try eating in the snack bar once next door for lunch and our pitta bread was very burnt - why didn't they see that?! No apology and the service was very reluctant to say the least - don't they want people in their bar/restaurant? We did also notice that their menu prices were higher than other tavernas/bars in the village, no idea at all why that should be, but cynically all Guests are offered 15% off in them!

All in all, in a great location, Roda is fabulous resort with some gorgeous bars and tavernas (Roxannes/Skouna/Pirates are great), but don't expect anything from this Hotel other than a base - its right next to the bus stop and taxi rank. We've experienced much better around Corfu (Costas Golden Beach in Agios Georgiou North - superb in every way and the same price).

Don't usually have negatives, but sorry Afrodite, you need to try harder.

Room Tip: Sea View room for the views, if you want sun on your balcony ask for a pool view - you can't hav...

We went to this hotel for the last week in August, first week in September and had a great time at this hotel.
We arrived very early on the Tuesday, word of warning, night flights are horrendous, and without a doubt you can almost guarantee that a screaming child will be in the seat behind you!!
The transfer takes a long time, perhaps it wouldn't be so bad during the day as you could sit back and admire the view but at night it seems to take forever to get there.

Once we were at the hotel we were quickly checked into our room by the 'night guy', and as booked we got a sea view room which is just as i wanted, a great view of the sea just across the road, in my mind definately worth the money. I thought our room was lovely, very clean and had everything you wanted, plenty of electric sockets, fridge etc. I thought that the beds were ok. Not quite as hard as other beds i have slept in in Greece! At least my arms didn't go dead at night.
The bathroom to my mind could do with a bit of updating, i was pleased to see it had a small bath which i did use, but i do think the tiles could do with a scrub with a bit of bleach, my only real gripe with the room.
We didn't have the air conditioning as we did get a nice breeze off the sea and our room was never in direct sunlight so it wasn't too bad however,i heard that the air-conditioning wasn't too expensive and i would of had it it was a bit too unbearable.
The price for the safe and fridge was only 35euros for 2 weeks which i thought was really good. I have been to other greek hotels where the cost for this was a lot more.

The breakfast was ok, fairly standard although i was surprised that they didn't have a buffet as i can only imagine that they have alot of waste. The price for the full english breakfast if you wanted it was really cheap and it was excellent, we went next door to Big Bens one morning but thought it wasnt as good as the hotels. I can see why they just do breakfast for an hour, but then we missed it a couple of days as we wanted a lay-in after a lot of late nights!!

The afroditi pool area was ok, maybe slightly smaller than i imagined but plenty of sunbeds. Unfortunately my husband was one of the ones who got up early to put our towels out (sorry!) we did like to be in a specific area and next to our friends!
The food at the pool bar was excellent and well priced with 10% off, total bargain! You could also get a discount for food at the hotel bar at the front, also very good.
Afroditi was a lovely lady and on our last day brought as a drink! she works very hard..nice to see her daughter making friends with the hotel young guests in the pool.

The hotel 'taverna' adjoined to the hotel was absolutely brilliant. We ate there alot mainly because the food was consistent and very good. You also got a 15% discount for eating in there and it made eating out a total bargain, with an average meal and wine at around 25 euros i really don't think you can argue with that, must be the cheapest place to eat in Greece!!
We did try other restaurants around Roda but we were aware of the restaurants close to the seafront being full of Mosquitos, which did put us off a bit, as i don't like being eaten alive much!

What really made our holiday were the people we met here. The hotel is full of return visitors and it gives the hotel a real 'warm' and friendly atmosphere. We had never been here before but we can see the attraction of people coming back time and again. We met a lovely (mad) couple from Stoke who became good friends, we ended up eating out with them most nights, it was a very sad moment when they left before us.A couple of lads from Wales and a couple from Glasgow (and sunderland!!) Meeting all of these people really made our holiday special, maybe the fact that hotel mainly have Thomson 'occupy' the hotel makes a big difference, not to many Germans or russians etc.. maybe a horrible thing to say, but i do think that having mainly brits did make the difference to the atmoshphere around.

We liked Roda itself. A small village really but had a good enough selection of places to eat the usual shops and everything you should need. We hired a car from Dromeus (?) along the main strip, we got a great deal on a cabriolet to drive around for 3 days, and the lady we met when we picked up the car couldn't of been more helpful. Having driven around the to other northern resorts we feel we definatly picked the right place.

I daresay without a doubt that we will be back, why not? maybe even next year perhaps to annoy that other couple we met..!!
If we did go back, i might be inclined to make sure we get a day flight and even perhaps book a taxi transfer as i think it might be worth the money.

Room Tip: Definately pay the extra for a sea view room.
