Me and my family spent 2 weeks in this beautifully designed, elegant hotel and all I can say it was beyond perfect.
First, we would like to express our gratitude to the hard-working hotel staff for the hospitality, smiles and kind words we have always received. Andreas, Angelina, Katerina, Yiannis, Giannis, Natasa and Solon. A huge pleasure to meet you! :-)
As we entered the hotel (and our room of course!) we were charmed by this luxurious feeling. What I loved the most is if you took a closer look, you not only saw the perfectly designed furniture compositions, but also the clever details, which gave you this pleasant feeling that you are still in authentic Greece.
The hotel rooms were cleaned twice a day and they provided fresh sheets and towels every day.
The main restaurant and the food was fabulous! Absolute culinary delights in every way! And trust me, the selection is more than enough.
Alila has some a'la carte restaurants as well (recommended!), if you would like to try them, then you have to book a table at the reception. Easy and fast.
Each bar sections' service is quick and your drinks are made from qualitative alcohols and other ingredients.
There are great music shows every night organised by the hotel. During our stay we had the pleasure to party with The Golden Tongues, who sang hits from The Temptations, The Drifters and so on. The show was an instant success and by the end of the night the whole hotel was dancing... :-)
The centre of Faliraki (full of bars, discos and souvenir shops) is 4-5 kms away from the hotel. We took a taxi and cost about 5-6 Euros.
Beach area is so peaceful and the sea is pleasant enough to cool you after long hours of sunbathing. Greek people don't like sandy beaches so this one is pebbly. That's why we bought some pair of beach shoes. (You can get it in the hotel's mini market; -1 floor.) It was more comfortable this way.
I think sunbeds are rather available in the afternoon, when most of the guests have some siesta. Tip: If you want to make sure, you should go down to the beach early in the morning and reserve the right sunbeds with a towel. You might also enjoy the sunrise... :-)
Another great experience is the beach bar with its lovely staff. Always keep up the good work Giannis, Natasa and Solon, because not only the hot weather, but your kindness make the guest hearts melt.
Rhodes is rich in natural resources and has some beautiful villages, tranquil points and hidden treasures.
We took part in a trip to Lindos, Monolithos, Embonas, Valley of the butterflies and island of Symi. These are all breathtaking places, where you can take the authentic greek atmosphere into your soul.
This was the perfect family holiday, one can imagine. Thank you Alila for the experience and the inimitable greek hospitality. Our memories won't fade away.
