D'Andrea Mare Beach Resort
Ranked #1 of 31 Hotels in Ialyssos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 October 2010

I have reached the hotel around 22"00 with my wife and 3 small kids. The check-in process was long and not effective, as we were a group of travelers checking in, and only one receptionist.
There are several things in this hotel which you should be prepared:
1. Staff at reception is not friendly at all.
2. Airplane traffic - very hectic airplanes traffic heading to the nearby Diagoras international airport of Rhodes are passing exactly over the hotel in low altitude. The noise is unbearable!
3. Ants in the room - there were ants all over the room, expecially near the kitchenette basin area, but also a lot in the balcony. Other families in the hotel told me they have the same problem.
4. Food variety - no variety at all. You may find the same food every day. Breakfasts are the worst with very scarce variety.
5. Airconditioninig - Hotel centrally deactivates airconditioning on Sept 15th.
Airconditioning is mandatory as there are still very hot days (more than 30 degrees). You are asked to pay extra for having airconditioning opened for your room.
6. Entertainment team - very poor level of entertainment team.

On our arrival the hotel looked nice, a bit remote but that should not be a problem.
First thing we hear when we check in is that the Air-conditioning is only working several hours a day, It can work but than you have to pay extra 5 Euro a day. The Safe rental is 20 Euro a week. We get to our family room and immediately notice the distinct smell of smoking, we had to air the room for days do get rid of those smells. We booked a family room: the size of it was ok, the balcony was very large. And it was possible to see the see from the balcony but more closely we where also overlooking a empty piece of land which to Greek tradition is used as a dump, car parts and old washing machines etc. , not very nice. The bathroom had no extraction and there was a wire coming from the wall. There was no seal around the bath so the spaces between the bath and wall looked far from clean. Than there was the ceiling that looked like a board with some paint and the edges where not finished. They have chosen the cheapest wall-lights I have ever seen, none of them had the shape they once had an one of them was snapped of and they left the empty plate on the wall.
The all-inclusive package included all food and beverages, as they all do, but only on the times and places that they could be bothered to open up for the guests. The drinks were all of the very cheapest quality I have ever tasted, on top of that they where all watered down. The food was very monotone and soggy, and cold by the time you sat back at your table. The lunch that was served was left overs from the night before warmed up in water, who goes on holiday to eat sprouts everyday for lunch? and potatos that were clearly days old. The deserts where the same every day, two choices and a basket of unripe hand fruit, no grapes, cheese, Greek deserts or coffee. Coffee seemed to be liquid gold, the coffee machine in the dining room was only switched on during breakfast and since that ends at 10am the man with the key came and would turn it of at exactly 10.01, no coffee any more just wait until the assigned coffee-slots at the pool bar (three times a day) the coffee machine in the main bar was never switched on so you had to go down to the pool bar to get the coffee there, where the sign would tell you it is not allowed to take any drinks back to the main bar. After all the trouble one went to get a coffee it tasted like vending machine brown semi warm stale water.Having paid almost 2000 euros for a week I would expect to have at least some fresh food. The staff in the pool bar liked their music loud and in your ears, so every order you made they answered with "WHAT?!" Very rude staff at the pool bar that acted like they were there to do you a favour. The floor around the pool bar was dangerously slippery when wet. I fell down the steps, luckily I could brake my fall. I saw more people fall but maybe not hard enough for the management to do something about it. Im glad that my wife did not fall down been 5 months pregnant. Sitting by the pool was not easy too, you had to claim a sun lounger before 7am otherwise they were all gone. Most of them were reserved by people who actually used them only three times 10 minutes during the day. Clearly there are not enough of them around. The entertainment team did the best they could I guess, but the program was the same every day, even the music they used for the aqua-gym gets brainwashed into your holiday memory the same the same the same. The hotel is based right on final approach of the Rodes airport. Jets fly over every so many minutes only 300 meters and 120dB above you from 6am to until late in the evening. The night before we left we found out that the directions, we got from reception, on the map was a 15 minute detour to avoid us from seeing all the other hotels, shops and restaurants. So when we found the short cut trough this street we felt really cheated.... So on the day we left we had to leave our luggage in the (public) reception area free for anyone to steal. Or the alternative option was to pay another 35 euros to rent a room for a shower! I tried to use the free shower facility, that we found out was there for these occasions only by been informed by another guest NOT the hotel staff. First I had to ask towels from the reception, that involved a management decision how could I ask for that! What a shame!!! There was no-where to hang your fresh clothes and the shower head was not working just the tab... by the time I got out of that room I was so ready to leave this hotel for ever.
The weather was great plus 30 degrees with a nice breeze from the see but that can not be changed by any hotel manger of holiday maker...
