Reviewed 7 July 2014

Booked this through Thomsons, the hotel itself was lovely, really clean! We arrived pretty late and they had left out soup and rolls for us late arrivals which was really nice!
We stayed in a studio room, which was basically just a larger room with the comfiest, massive sofa in there! The air con was amazing, we were never ever too hot which was perfect for the hot nights.
The pool area is nice, although there isn't actually a lot of room around the pool for loungers and it can be quite squashed up but there its an overflow grassed areas with trees for shade, although typically they say you can't reserve the loungers with a towel, obviously you have to be up early if you want a good spot. Although on the site it says there is two pools, there is really only one big pool and a really small children's pool. The pool is really clean but there is no slides or anything like that for children.
The food on an evening was really nice, a great selection of Greek and 'Normal' food too which was good!! The bars were also really good, the inside bar is very sophisticated perfect if youre wanting to dress up, although the bar man could sometimes use a smile! Other than the bar men, the staff were lovely and friendly and speak really good English!

In terms of location, its literally about 15mins from Rhodes airport and about 20-30 mins into Rhodes on the bus, which costs about €2.30 for a single and runs every ten mins outside the hotel which in convenient!

There is also a car rental guy who sits outside the restaurant, we rented a lovely fiat 500 for the day (8.30am - 9pm) which for €45 and a full to full basis with petrol which was great! We drove the water park in Faliraki (30min drive to the other side of the island) think the place was called EuroStar Car!

Also, although Ialyssos as a place doesn't look like anything, if you walk towards the beach from the hotel, just before you reach the beach, turn left and in takes you into a town with loads of bars and shops which unfortunately we didn't find until the last night!

All in all fantastic holiday!!!
The only downside for some people would be it is directly under the flight path for the airport, we actually liked this because the planes were quite low although you do get used to it and it isn't loud during the night!

Room Tip: Definitely go for a studio room if you like a chilled night in!!

Great hotel clean and well cared for. We went a week ago and it was very hot, but because of the breeze that you get at this side of the island it was tolerable. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure you were comfortable. The food was good and offered a wide variety: some being Greek dishes. Our only complaint was that the soup could have done with being hotter. The entertainment was fun and good for all ages. We are in out 70s but were made to feel included. The entertainment staff worked very hard indeed and were pleasant. My only concern was that the music for the children's disco was very loud and could not have been good for their young ears as they were right under the microphone. Arthur in the pool bar was lovely and seemed to work all hours. Make sure you look up at the sculpture in the foyer as you enter, it is of Diagorus an ancient Olympian boxer and the airport is named after him: it is superb.

Room Tip: Ask for one high up as the Mosquitos are bad if you are close to any of the trees.

This hotel was very clean and the food was very good. Some people have said on here that the food is repetitive but I did not think so. There was enough choice to eat something different every day. If the food was poor I would be the first to say do as I have worked in this industry for the last 30 years. The whole setup there is very professional apart from the occasional entertainment act which could have been better. The entertainments team work very hard and are very good. Our room was excellent very clean and well decorated. All inclusive drinks were ok.
Watch out for the time share scam in Rhodes town. Diamond resorts. They said we won a star prize and had to go by taxi to a town called ilyssos to collect it. I explained that we were sating at a hotel near there but they would not let us just make our own way there it had to be by there taxi. We walked away.

Pros
• Hotel is clean, family orientated, well staffed.
• Food was great, good variety, vegetarian options available.
•Room (Twin room with garden view) clean, well maintained.
•Maids clean the room daily, change your towels , etc.
•Pool is spotless, big and they provide activities throughout each day, but leave half the pool for people to swim in.
• First choice rep was helpful, all his advice was prompt and drawn from knowledge of living in Rhodes

Cons
• Maids barge into room any given time between 10.30 - 11.30 and shoo you out.
• Not enough food during times when you might have missed breakfast
• Animation team are obnoxiously loud until midnight, yelling "Shabba!" Abd "Wagwun" after every sentence, I'm actually going to go insane if I hear the cha cha slide one more time.

Really nice 4 star hotel. For a relaxing holiday i would recommend.

I went a a couple of weeks ago and it was great. We went all inclusive and it included cocktails that were served from 10am-12pm which made lazing by the pool even better.

The staff are friendly and the food is good(pretty of selection but could do with more greek choices). The area itself looks a little dodgy when driving from the airport(only 15/20 mins away) but ignore that because the beach area is really nice. Rhodes town/old town is about 25-30 min pass journeyt for 2.3 euros. If your going with Thomson i would recommend the Rhodes by Night tour

Room Tip: I woudl recommend a sea view but at least on 2nd floor

Firstly do not believe the reviews that say this hotel is awful, some people are just too hard to please.

Shorter review:
this hotel is close to the beach and local shops. The rooms are clean and the hotel as friendly staff and perks such as free wifi. The trip into Rhodes town takes 30 minutes for €4.60 return. The busses seem to operate every half and hour but they are often late.
Longer review:
This hotel is ideally situated right next to a shingle beach (sun beds are subject to charge at €5 each or €8 for two) and a small strip of shops and restaurants. The 30 minute transfer time from the airport is ideal as most flights arrive late at night. The downside to this is that the hotel directly in the flight path. However, this is not a big issue as they are not all that frequent. The hotel offers free wifi, a late checkout service (€30) and a room safe (€20 charge plus a €20 returnable deposit). The hotel was kept clean and reception staff were friendly and could always answer our questions.

The food is of average quality with little to no variation. As fussy eaters there was nothing for us to eat except burgers and chips twice a day. The main dining room seems cramped and out of date. The staff and service is slow in terms of cleaning with the 'trainee students' acting without enthusiasm and a smile. Despite this being an all inclusive hotel we suggest that you have food in one of the local, reasonably priced restaurants to change up your evening.

The bar staff are excellent with a special shout out to Arthur at the snack bar, all brand drinks are subject to an additional charge however there is a small range of cocktails that are included in the all inclusive package.

The entertainment staff are the highlight of this hotel. With special credit to team leader Dan who never failed to make us smile. Day time activities include daily aqua fit, water polo, football and volleyball to name a few. Evening activities include a nightly mini disco and then a Latin night, poker night (18+), the entertainment team show, quiz night, Greek night and karaoke.

The pool side area is nice with a large grassy area and palm trees. Whilst the hotel says reserving of sun beds is not allowed this still happens, and the hotel does nothing about it. However we found that we could wake up at 8:30 and still find two sun beds with an umbrella close to the pool. During our stay it did not seem as though there were a shortage of sun beds.

The rooms are large with a tv (limited channels), a mini fridge (not stocked), and a balcony area. Some rooms do overlook the road however we had an excellent view of the pool and snack bar. The bathrooms are large and spacious with good showers and plumbing. The rooms were kept clean, however do not expect your sheets to be changed or your beds to be made. The cleaner was in our room for all of 5 minutes and only seemed to mop the floors and fold the duvet at the end of the bed.

This hotel is good for couples or families with a large percentage of guests being polish. We found our biggest issue would be smoking by the pool area. We feel this should not be allowed so close to children and that there should be a designated smoking area.

As two 18 year olds we found this was a good hotel to stay at for our first holiday without our parents and would recommend it to others.
