The majority are usually right - after having read other reviews I agree -reasonable hotel in need of upgrade in good location for the old town but oh dear the food!
Good location overlooking the beach
10 minutes walk to Rhodes town new part or 15 minutes to the old town
Close enough to be convenient but far enough away to avoid the noise of the new town area at night
Good sized pool
Rooms and hotel immaculately clean
Constant sea breeze
Road between the hotel and beach - not an issue for us but constant traffic noise until early hours of the morning may be an issue for some
Not the cleanest of beaches but seen worse!
Far too few parasols - need to be at the pool for 8.00 to 8.30 otherwise in the sun all day. Not good enough for a hotel with 212 rooms and only around 20 parasols its unforgivable. I go on holiday to relax not be getting up early to reserve a parasol and sun longer.
Nice sea and pool views from front and side - rear rooms face hillside with semi derelict buildings.
Worst aspect is the food - genuinely motorway service station standard (despite what some other reviewers have said!) and given the excellent quality and value for money of the food in most of the restaurants in the area it's unforgivable to provide this quality of food! my tip - don't book anything more than breakfast and visit some of the great value restaurants in the old and new town.
Rooms good sized but fittings are dated particularly bathrooms that are probably 20+ years old.
Annoying issue are the balconies on the rooms facing the sea - no privacy screens so the whole floor have the chance to get to know each other really well whether they want to or not!
Annoying issue number 2! - if you book through Thomas Cook as we did be prepared to be advised on arrival in Rhodes that there is no representative at the hotel or guide book (hope you are not planning on booking any excursions or seeking advice from a rep.!
In summary spent a good week in Rhodes last month -wouldn't go back to the hotel -it's ok and staff are great but too many issues let it down.
