We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Pegasus - I travelled with my 3yr old daughter and my mum. We had booked two rooms, and asked for them next door, although this hadnt been arranged, we were offered two rooms with an adjoining door, which was perfect as we had seperate bathrooms and balconies, but my daughter could run between the two rooms without going into the corridor. The rooms are large, modern and spotlessly clean.
We managed 3 days without aircon, but with temperatures at 39degrees, on day 4 we paid for it (5euros a day, which i personally think is very reasonable) - it's best to keep the doors shut at night due to the mosquitos!!
The pool is lovely, loads of beds available, and a slide for the children. All the staff are fantastic, my little girl loved Jana who worked in the bar at the pool, and nothing was too much trouble for her, bringing drinks to you at your sunlounger and chatting to us, lovely girl! My little girl was stung by a wasp and Jana ran around getting ice and cream for her hand and checking she was ok. Sharka is lovely, and knows the name of everyone staying at the hotel which i think is fantastic as it makes you feel so welcome and not just another guest!!
The snacks are nice at the snackbar, but it would be good to have crisps for sale, as sometimes my little girl just wanted a packet of crisps in the afternoon and not a meal.
The bar is open all night, and is reasonably priced and it isnt noisy so you're not disturbed. The road is a bit noisy at the front, but if you have aircon and your patio door closed, its not a problem!!
Roda is beautiful, the beach is a 5 min walk away and is gorgeous, really small and safe for children. The sea was warm as well which is nice!! The best places to eat are Roxannes (fantastic breakfast if you want a fry up or omelette!) and the staff are great (the two English owners - Michelle and Gina I think are lovely) and "A place with a heart" - cant remember the Greek name, the food was the best i've had. Both are right on the beach, we ate looking at the sea every night. The best bar is Pirates Bar, the staff are lovely (especially Naomi), and remembered what we drank every night, they usually have tribute acts on which is a right laugh. Go into "acropolis" and buy some jewellery and fake designer watches/glasses, I came home with a Rolex and some Gucci shades for 15euros!!!
I would recommend getting taxis from the airport as the transfer on the coach is 2 hours due to all the drop offs.
Overall, best holiday I've had, and I'll be back next year!!
