A great hotel with lovely distinct areas and our appartment in the VIP area was very good.The reception area was equally excellent with very helpful staff. The hotel has great potential as a holiday hotel but is clearly aiming at the corporate/wedding/chess competition market whilst trying to appear holiday orintated and has maybe fallen between the two stools.
The extreme cost of drinks, clearly 5 * prices i.e Colas and other soft drinks nearly 4euros, bottles of water 2euros 70 etc. obviously put, particularly families, off. Our water bill at hotel prices for 8 days would have been over £60. I have never seen so many couples and families sitting in the foyer and other social areas at tables with no drinks. Also at dinner so many tables again no drinks or just water! No incentive for waiters to earn tips from alcohol sales, hence the need in a 5* to queue for breakfast and dinner. Sometimes 30 people waiting whilst a few just walked through ignoring the matron in charge.
The food was good but consistently 3/4 *.
The Piano Bar as advertised in the brochure had a beautilful grand piano which we never heard played all week!
Rhodes is such a lovely Island and generally the holiday was great pity, about the rest.
