My partner and I have just got back from a great week at the Faliraki Beach. We are tanned relaxed and happy! We booked last minute and, having seen many of the other hotels available at a similar price during our transfer, we are quite sure we picked the right one!
It is in the centre of Faliraki which means you have plenty of shops, tavernas and bars nearby, but we were never disturbed at night by noise from the clubs or bars. The hotel is right on a lovely clean sandy beach with clear water. You have to pay for sunbeds on the beach as they don't belong to the hotel - but 7.20 euros for 2 sunbeds, umbrella and table isn't unreasonable we felt.
The bus stop to Rhodes Town is right outside the hotel or just along the beach you can catch the water taxi - we did both and would highly recommmend it!
As for the hotel itself:
The room we were in was basic but spotlessly clean. The balcony was a good size and we enjoyed a night cap there overlooking the sea every night! The beds are firm but comfortable - but be warned the pillows are VERY firm! The air conditioning unit is a big ugly unit - but works a treat and isn't too noisy even on full power - plus you can control it yourself at any time of day or night (unlike in many other hotels we have stayed in!).
The staff are mostly very polite friendly and helpful. The animation team are a bit OTT but do tend to concentrate their efforts on the guests who want to join in all the activities and don't pester you if uou prefer to watch or just chill out.
The food was fine - plenty of it, well presented, tasty, and good selection. Although after a week we were getting a bit fed up with it. The drinks are varied, and decent quality, although the cocktails rarely tasted the same as they don't use measures - and they are often a lot stronger than you imagine! But certainly they couldn't be criticised for watering anything down!
The only thing you had to buy was bottled water as this wasn't available on all inclusive for some reason, but its not expensive so not an issue for us.
The entertainment was interesting - probably best described as good for a laugh after a few drinks - mostly aimed ( we thought) at the German guests who seemed to throw themselves into all and any activity - my personal favourite being the afternoon dance around the pool - you had to see it to believe it!
On the day of our departure they provided a courtesy room and plenty of clean towels. We also were alloowed to continue to eat drink and use all the facilities until we were collected.
All in all this is a decent, comfortable, well run hotel, that offers really good value for money, in an excellent location for getting around the island or simply chilling.
