Sun Beach Holiday Club

Reviewed 20 April 2014

We rented with RCI and stayed from 13-20 April (Passover and Easter). The hotel was just taking the sunbeds out by the sea and putting up umbrellas for the season, but we felt welcome and had everything we needed. Especially helpful was the rental car agency in the lobby. We found them flexible and accommodating and at a very reasonable rate. The staff were all kind and thoughtful and helpful. I would come again - anytime! The reason I'm only giving 4 stars is the lack of FULL equipment in the kitchen and some exercise equipment not in service, but I enjoyed our stay immensely! RCI in Israel, was not so helpful as they refused to call the hotel to request a handicapped hotel! Shame on you RCI Israel!

Room Tip: full sea view means no (and I mean NO) sun on the porch. You choose if that's a good thing or n...

My husband and I were here 6-13 April 2014. We booked with RCI and we were alloted room 322 overlooking the sea. Huge, clean unit big enough for 4 people. It was nice waking up in the morning with an amazing view.
They have well stocked Kitchenette. We had our Breakfast on the Balcony everyday. Staffs were very friendly especially the Receptionist and the Car rental agent. We got the Wi-fi for free, due to few guest perhaps. Strong wifi signal in our room for few days ( thanks to our unknown neighbor).
Car rental for three days was only 75 euro for a small car. Hubby and i drove around the Island. Absolutely beautiful!! Restaurant- couldn't comment as we always were always out. We tried Aspri Avli, recommended by another contributor. Beautiful Garden Restaurant that serves great food, generous portions at reasonable prices just 5 minutes walk from the hotel.
There were only few opened Restaurants/shops/hotels as it was just the start of the season.
This Resort is located on the windy side of Rhodes. If you like surfing, Ialyssos is the place to be.

Soon as we arrived was met with a very miserable lady on reception called Mikala!! Had a number of dealings with her and she continued to be moody and impatient. Room was ok, bit basic for my liking (found out later there was much more fancy rooms the floor above us!!) had very temperamental air con that was dripping all the time! Expensive for drinks and food and I felt the resort could do with some essential maintenance work. Lovely sea view from our balcony but we had a cockerel the other side that liked to sound off at the early hours. Would not recommend or ever go again.

Room Tip: Request a room sea view side not pool side

We stayed there second time as an RCI exchange in July. The apartements are spacious and we had a very beautiful seawiev from our balcony. I don't understand some complaints about the mosquitos. I have used to use electrical mosquitokillers and they work well.

The cleaning level had got the better way when the ownership changed to Diamond Resort. I hope that the Diamond Resort will develop the timeshare apps, now there is no wineglasses.
We took a half-board from the hotel and it was quite good, but not so good as I hoped. Next time we don't take halfboard, because the local small restaurants are also good.

The pool area is really near the sea and it is only for the club members. You can find free sunbeds also later.

Remarkably high standard for Greece. Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely pool and a path straight onto the pebbly beach. Excellent pool bar and relaxed daily activity programme for families. Kids club too. Mini-golf and tennis courts. On-site supermarket that isn't out to rip you off. Good standard of accommodation that will only get better now Diamond International have taken over. Diamond reps are friendly, helpful and not pushy. We were treated like friends. Don't miss Gina's happy hours. She is a bundle of fun and great advice on local attractions and restaurants.
Apartment was spotless and clean towels every day. Bed was a little too firm, but Diamond International beds are on their way! Everything you could need was in the apartment. Air-conditioning was effective. We had a wonderful sea view and a large balcony. Get yourself Platinum Diamond International membership and the Wifi is free too!
Booking again for 2014.

We stayed at Sun Beach Holiday Club as an RCI exchange and we enjoyed it very much.

There are no porters to help you to your room and I felt very sorry for a young Mum travelling with a small child who ended up on the wrong side of the hotel quite late at night. Having been told that check-in for her was on the other side, she was just left to find it on her own in the dark with all her luggage to lug along with her and a rather tired little boy. That said, we were given a wonderful room - spacious and with a magnificent sea view.

Every day our room was serviced and we were given clean towels. The little kitchenette was perfect for our needs - except that we had to buy dish washing liquid and a dish cloth. It had a hot plate and small microwave but it was the fridge and kettle that we really wanted. There is a small supermarket between the two sections of the hotel and it is very well priced. A small water there was 25 cents as opposed to 50 cents in most other places (and 3 euros at the Acropolis!!!!). There are many lovely eating and shopping options to choose from and we quickly realised that you can find some good deals on Rhodes. Don't leave all your shopping for Athens - you might be disappointed.

Sun Beach has its own pretty little bit of beach with loungers and sunshades. It is a pebbly beach so you need shoes and we found it a bit windy for swimming but just gorgeous for watching the kite surfers.

We decided to hire a car - easily done! There are many agents from the well known ones like Hertz and Europcar near the airport to delightful family businesses like Intercar in Rhodes Town which is the one we chose. It was at a place called Kariba Travel and we were given an excellent deal for the week. Just make sure you keep your receipt handy as you can be stopped and asked to produce it.

The hired car gave us the freedom to explore everything this beautiful island has to offer from tons of lovely sandy beaches to all the delightful little places up in the mountains. Loungers on the beaches are 4 euros per person. There are lots and lots of restaurants on and near the beaches where you can enjoy some refreshment and get free wifi at the same time.

And that was a downside for us at the hotel. The wifi cost 1 euro per half hour with some other deals if you wanted to buy for a few days. We had big problems getting it to work while at our favourite restaurant at Faliraki Beach, we could enjoy a Frappe at a good price and time on the Internet everyday for free - problem free too! The receptionist at Sun Beach apologised to me when we checked out. Apparently it wasn't just us who battled and eventually the hotel had called a technician in. We would have used the hotel bar and lounge if we had been able to get free wifi there while enjoying a sundowner. Instead we took our business elsewhere.

The hotel is eco-friendly and we liked that. The solar panels double up as shading for the parking area. It is well situated. We went for lovely walks in the evening through the little town and back. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A lovely resort on an island that is definitely worth seeing.

Room Tip: We were first floor above the bar which was a bit noisy some nights but we wouldn't have changed...
