Myself and my partner had been looking for a while and found this holiday on Thompson, an all inclusive break on the date we wanted for a great price.
Hotel: public areas are extremely clean and well kept, our room was a tad dated but again clean, the bathroom was nice however I would advise staying in the newer part of the building if this is an option, particularly if you are a family.
Facilities: the pool is excellent, cold but that's probably due to the weather. Don't miss out on the water park, we went twice during our stay, towels are provided, there is food, soft drinks and beer available at all times, the rides are good and there's something for everyone. The wave pool only seems to run at 4pm though. The entertainment team are ok, personally if I had children I wouldn't want to leave my kids with them but there was always something going on.
Food: don't go here if you are expecting gourmet dining! the food is edible and there is a decent choice, it can be repetitive but you get what you pay for. It was quiet when we were there and I can see it may be a struggle to seat and feed everyone during peak season. There were snacks between meals and pizza, chips, gyros etc. at the water park.
Transport links are good into Rhodes town and Lindos, Faliraki seemed derelict but again it was out of season. Overall a good holiday, bettered my expectations and staff are helpful. I personally wouldn't visit Rhodes again but I would recommend the sun palace.
