We went to sun palace last June for my 40th Birthday I have a 4 year old and a 10 year old (at the time). Its not the best Hotel in the world but far from the worse.
Negatives - Poor air conditioning in the rooms , No English kids channels for the kids in the morning (when they get up). Entertainment at night was not fantastic but the kids loved it . Saw the odd resident rat now and again climbing around the bar area we named him Roland. Hotel could be noisy at times but we were in the main block above bar so expected it.
Faliraki is a 5 minute walk from hotel but it was very run down and mega expensive which is a shame because the people were lovely who we met having a walk round.
Positives - Food ok no one became ill , water park amazing , staff friendly and never stop working around the pool area. Loads to do for the kids in the hotel. Stone throw away from the beach. 30 Mins by bus ride to Rhodes town which was brilliant. Boat trips to Lindos off of beach fairly cheap and a brilliant day out (hard work for small kids)
Most of all the weather was amazing that's why they call it The sun Island.
All in all it says what it is in the brochures an average 3 star hotel with a brilliant water park. Have a walk to King Arthurs pub just up the road a good show.
Just remember Faliraki is not as commercial as other med holiday destinations don't panic its not that bad at all. We felt the same last year when I read the reviews but you cannot please everyone and if people want a 5 star hotel with butler service then go to the Seychelles.
