I stayed at this hotel in september last year and have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I had already booked this hotel when I read the reviews and was horrified at all of the negative comments about the hotel and came close to cancelling all together! I'm glad I didn't!.
The hotel is very pleasant, the staff are helpful (even though the staff in the restaurant are rushed off their feet half the time). The location is great, just a few minutes walk down to the shops and restaurants on the sea front. There is a bus stop a couple of minutes away which you can catch a bus to Rhodes Town from which in my opinion is a lovely little town to visit (the old town).
The pool was perfectly fine although could probably do with the edges around the pool touching up. There is a walkway from the hotel to the beach which goes under the road making it easier to cross. The beach is fine although a bit harsh on the feet as there are lots of pebbles as you get to the water.
The food I found was not amazing but we never went hungry! Breakfast was great and had a lot of choice including pancakes and the usual english breakfast type food. Juice, tea and coffee available. Dinner was fine they did try to change a few things each day, one of the days there was lamb served and it was delicious! There were snacks available by the pool everyday (bread, ham, cheese) and icecream is included in the all inclusive.
Room was absolutely fine, no faults!
All in all the four of us that went had a lovely holiday and even discussed going back to the same hotel some time. The only thing that I would say that is bad aout the hotel is just that they could do with a few more waiters as they were all very rushed!
Glad I stuck with this hotel, if you have booked and read all the bad reviews, don't worry! it's not as bad as some people may say!
