We stayed here early June and had a wicked time. The accommodation itself is perfect and so well priced for what you get.
We stayed in the new block and were given rooms next to each other, the rooms are huge and kept really clean with nice balconies. Aircon was 35euros, quite noisy but completely worth it with the temperature over there. I think the safe box in the room was around 20 too. The beds aren't particularly comfy and it was often noisy as always with a club 18-30 hotel but we were always so tired we slept anyway. Despite other reviews about the maids stealing or hiding things we didn't have any of this trouble and they were very nice whenever we saw them. Something to mention that can't really be helped is that the shower doesn't have a curtain, they are sort of like wet-rooms as they do have a drain but the water ends up everywhere which was a bit of a pain. And also toilet roll cannot be flushed as with most Greek islands and resorts.
The complex itself is actually really attractive with lots of greenery and the pool is amazing... really cold and clean and big enough for the hotel. The family that run it are so nice and stay up all night to help guests if they need it especially coming home from a night out. They serve food too quite cheaply. The location is really good only a short walk away
Faliraki itself wasn't what we expected as a clubbing resort it is not that great as it is pretty much on its 'way down', so if you want a slightly quieter but still 'clubby' holiday then its perfect. This was partially due to it being early season but this is when its cheap.
There are lots of bars and restaurants that are a bit desperate for customers but most are actually good, the club promoters get very very annoying though. There are two strips Bar Street and Club Street. Bedrock, jacks and liquid are a good clubs. Georges is a hilarious bar - the owner has the best voice and is so worth a visit at night. Our favourite place by far was Roomeli's restaurant, it has a really nice cocktail bar out the back with great people to keep you company - really cheap strong delicious cocktails to order - the promoter isn't joking when he says the barman will get you drunk for about a fiver, we went for pre's pretty much every night. Roomeli's was really good for food too, i'd also recommend Opera.
Daytime stuff theres loads to do - at the main road go left instead of right for a better beach than the main one. The water park is a must, such good value for money and amazing views and rides. You also have to go to Rhodes old town its so beautiful and really quaint. Lindos is supposedly really nice too, and there's this banana boat ride that stop in all these little caves and let you snorkle.
As for the 18-30 nights out, they are such a rip off - don't do them! They are 40euros per night out, or you can fully commit yourself to all of them for like 230euros. All the stuff you can do on the night out you can do so much cheaper without the reps - they are basically organised school-trip like bar crawls so you pay to be walked around and then an hours free bar or something which you can get for 10euros by going straight to the bar. We weren't allowed to stray off the bar crawl despite paying for it aswell. BUT if the resort is kinda empty like when we went, its worth it for a few nights to meet the people in the place and go to the busiest places.
All in all we had a great cheapish week, lovely and relaxing but with mad nights out if you want them.
