just back from 7 nights on late deal, with wife.
This is a decent 4 star and no more.
There are no major issues but quite a few niggly ones:
The food is good if somewhat samey each night. They only seem to label some of the food on offer which is very confusing when looking for non meat dishes. Staff can appear too keen to clear your plates between courses. Not sure if this is attention to service or to chivy you along! Only 2 very small lifts. They charge for the gym which is part of spa. Up to 10 euro for gym is out of order. Drinks at bars are expensive.
Rooms are large and cleaned daily. Free safes and fridge in room. Air con worked fine. Hotel right on pebbly beach but has decent fresh water pool. The real downside is the lack on any real entertainment, especially for kids or teenagers. There is a very enthusiastic guy that organises a few daily pool games but at night you have poor singing synth combos types. Lindos is a 7-10 euro taxi away and that mounts up every night. Buses are not reliable as far as I can see and most only stop at top of very steep climb to road. Staff are generally friendly.
If all you want is a quiet sun based holiday with decent food and decent accommodation it's fine. I cannot understand why people book here with kids, it must bore them to death.
Tips: There is a great taverna right at the bottom of the road (left out of doors) that you should use at night. They have really friendly staff, good music and the drinks are half the price of the hotel. Book your shower room well in advance for your last day. Use the hotel lobbly mini market for drinks in the day as they are half the price. Visit Lindos, Rhodes Old Town and the South and West of the island. Use the German SIXT car hire in the lobby which was over 20 euro per day cheaper than Thomas Cook option. You can get bottles of wine opened at bar but best to take your own corkscrew. In Lindos there is free shuttle bus up and down the hill which most people aren't aware of. When its 40 degrees you'll need it.
This was our first time in Rhodes and to be honest was not impressed with the island in general. Too dirty and full of of half completed property no pavements and litter everywhere. I have a theory that they do not have ruins, it's just how far they got before they went off to start another job.
