We have just got back from visiting the hotel and like many on here had read all the bad reviews and was slightly worried, however i can honestly not think of a bad thing to say about the hotel. The room we had was just a twin for 2 adults, but it was clean, the sheets and towels are changed every day, had a fridge, decent bathroom, nice balcony etc. For a little more money you could have a bungalow by the pool which was probably a better option, because then u can lie on the grass or get a sunlounger right outside your door. The pool area is lovely, its clean and quite big - yes the Germans do tend to hog all the sunbeds, but we found if we put our towels out on the way to breakfast at about 8.30 there were still some sunloungers around.
The food is relatively basic, but there was always something to eat and you never went hungry. Basically there was a fish dish, a couple of meat dishes, a vegetarian dish, pasta, chips, then a whole load of different salads. Breakfast was beans, eggs, bacon, toast, bread things, cereal - again always something. The bar got quite busy on an evening but the bar man, Giannis, is really good and friendly, the queue could be quite long but you were still served within 5 mins. You could have beer, which was nice, white or red wine, gin, whisky, vodka, ouzo, plus all soft drinks and water for free.
The beach was about a 10min walk away, and there wasnt much to see there because it is pebbles, but there was a little restaurant and sun loungers, 3 euro for all day. We went to Rhodes town one day, and the bus was 2.10 euros each, its about 15 mins on the bus but is so easy because the bus stop is right outside and runs every 15 mins.
Also, a taxi from the airport is about 10 Euros, we got a coach transfer included in our price but ended up waiting for loads of flights to come in before we could set off, and then we had to go the opposite direction from our hotel to drop people off, so we were sat on it for about 2 hours, whereas a taxi would be 10mins max.
I hope this helps, we paid about £260 each, that included flights, hotel all inclusive, transfers etc, so we think we got a great deal, but I would willingly have paid another £100- £150 quid on top of that for the service we received. If you try really hard you can always pick faults with something, but some of the complaints on here are ridiculous, and I would honestly recommend the hotel to anyone.
I dont have a clue what they are on about below about the knives and forks and glasses, they never run out.
