I recently spent a week at Olympia Sun and just want to extend my gratitude to Savvas, Laura, Seva, George, Dmitiris and all of the other staff who worked so hard to keep everyone happy. I don't want to forget the shopkeeper or the room cleaner either; both who struggled with English but made a real effort to be polite, helpful and courteous.
Although there are many nationalities that use this hotel, as an Englishman who loves a bit of adventure, I was actually pleased that this was the case as there is nothing worse than a hotel full of rowdy young brits trying to be clever! (There's enough of that on the strip, just 10 minutes away) It made for a more pleasant, relaxing environment around the place, which was perfect.
I should also point out that even though myself and my other half aren't great with other languages, we made a huge bunch of friends here. In particular, Marina and Zena from Russia who were a great laugh even though we could barely understand each other's language! We also met a great guy called Gino from Italy. Hello to you all!
If you're a little fussy with bugs and insects, then this is the place for you. Not one insect got near my room and the air-conditioning provided a great relief from the 43c temperature outside. The rooms are extremely clean and modern, regardless of which block you're in and even though we were late for breakfast several of the mornings, the staff were more than happy to let us tuck in to what was left. This was greatly appreciated and is not always the case when travelling abroad.
I also want to point out that I had no issue with the all-inclusive hours at the bar. There is a shop right there if you can't wait for a beer at the hotel during a three hour period. Being an evening drinker, this didn't bother me at all and I was very grateful to Seva for preparing such strong drinks and with great efficiency when I did go to the bar.
Although we spent most of the time on the strip and taking in everything Rhodes had to offer, we still had time to get to know everyone and that was the great thing about this place. Whether you're here to party, to enjoy the sites or simply sit by the pool, the staff greet you as though you are one of their own.
Once again thanks to everyone who made my time in Faliraki so great, I would strongly recommend staying here. It is much better than 3 stars, that is for sure.
