This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in, my only weeny complaint would be not enough parasols for the number of sunbeds. Although, no problem with getting a sunbed unless you want a parasol, and some are in the shade for part of the day due to the numerous trees dotted around. I mentioned that it was our 25th Wedding anniversary, and we were given room 423, which is on the corner above the restaurant, and the balcony was massive, with fantastiv views of the hotel pool, and the surrounding arear. We also got two complimentary boittles of sparking wine and some grapes, very nice.The hotel is extremely well kept, and the staff are all very helpful and friendly. The two on-site a la carte restaurants serve great food at competitive rates, and good portion size. The Bar area again is massive, and right next to the pool, which is great for evening drinks when lit up. There are also two snack bars, which are open until about 6pm. Drinks prices are not too expensive either.
The surrounding bars are not very many, and only good for a snack or the free wi-fi, and it is about 20-30 mins walk to the next 'resort' area, turn left at the end of the road to the beach. We tried Coconut and Le Gourmet, and were disappointed, although Villa De Mare is excellent and right on the beach too. Buses to Rhodes town are frequent and packed, but it is only 1.7 euros. A taxi is about 8 to 10 euros. We walked into Rhodes one night, about 2 miles to the edge of the town, and don't recommend it as at least half of the walk is along the path next to the sea, which is dimly lit and a muggers paradise, it would be OK during the day although a little hot. Rhodes town is beautiful, and you can spend hours in its cobbled streets, but best to go in the evening when it is cooler. Try Mama Sofias for great service and free puddings, its near the suleyman mosque.
If you get a taxi back from Rhodes at night, ask the driver to take you back along the top road, past the Acropolis, it offers stunning views of the coast towards Ixia, and also the other side of Rhodes town, the fare is the same, so its worth it.
Will return here again in the future for definite
