“dont let the bad reviews wory you.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2011

we'v just had a fab week at the sunland/bluebay, rooms were clean & tidy food was fine,there could hav been more choice with all-inclusive drinks, pools were great, water park was worth 10euros, nearest towns are only 20-30 min walk away and there are a few bars nearby, all the staff were friendly & helpfull overall we had a really good week, it was a last minute holiday for us and we coudnt find much fault with it at all, other couples we spoke to also enjoyed their stay.

Dreading arriving at this hotel after reading this site, but very pleasantly suprised. There are negatives, such as the location, and average entertainment, but overall really enjoyed holiday. We stayed in a family room which consisted of two bedrooms and a living area, some of the smaller rooms were a bit dingy. Rooms cleaned every day, towels changed everyday, sheets every other day. Food was very good, abit samey after a fornight, but all in all very nice. Pool areas were great, pool bar open 10 til midnight. Could use all the facilities of sister hotel across road, except resturant, this where all activities took place and evening entertainment which was ok.We paid 1800 quid for the four of us for a fortnight for that price it was great, so go with a open mind and enjoy. I worried for 6 months about this place after reading the reviews here, but we all loved this holiday.

We stayed here in September 2011. Having read previous reviews on other websites, we were a bit dubious about going, however we were pleasantly surprised. Yes it’s basic, however as long as you’re not expecting 5* treatment you’ll be fine. There is a sister hotel across the road which is more ‘upmarket’, however we found the only things this hotel had which the Sunland didn’t was a nice reception (but who spends their holiday in the hotel reception anyway??) and entertainment – but if you want entertainment it only takes 1 minutes to walk across the road.

The hotel was quiet as we went after the school holidays, and there were plenty of sunbeds available throughout the day. It was a peaceful and relaxing base to explore the island. The hotel is a 15 minute transfer from the airport, so don’t be surprised when you see planes flying over the hotel as you need to remember it is only 15 minutes from the airport!

The food is basic, and I think you’d struggle to eat here every day for more than 1 week as the menu doesn’t change that much. However, when you remember it is a 2/ 3* hotel you can’t expect fancy menus each and every night.

We went all inclusive, and this not only gives you all inclusive at the Sunland, but also at the sister hotel too.

Overall good value for money.

A bit nervous afer some of the reviews, but all we can say is that we had a great time. Stayed in 5* in Kos last year, but booked late and knew it was 3*star this year. Room was clean and basic - but that was all we were paying for. Staff were friendly. Food - was as expected from the type of hotel in GREECE! , always something all four of us could eat ( no english breakfasts, but still fried egg etc!). Very much for familys' not couples or singles. Good size hotel for kids making friends, which is what most familys' want. The hotel guides refer to the Blue Bay Hotel, whose facilities you can use, but to be honest, apart from a couple of evenings, we did not use - too big. Would we go back - if we were to go to that area with that budget - yes.
Met some great people, just remember that itis3* all inclusive in Greece, and you will be fine.

Feel free to ask any questions.

Room Tip: Poolside, not sea view

Hi, well what can i say... Great Holiday.
I was very concerned after reading the reviews on this hotel, We stayed in the Sunland but had access to all facilities in the blue bay which is a 1 minute walk.

Sunland was just our accommodation as far as we were concerned, we slept there and was out all day. The holiday can get very samey if you decide not to venture out but there is so much to do, you can hire a quad bike on site for 25 euros for the whole day. me and my partner spent the whole day visiting rodes, it was fab.

you can also catch the bus into rhodes old town for just 2 euros each, bus stop is about a 5 min walk from the hotel

you can also arrange excursions on site, we went to Lindos by boat (Captain Mike), cost $25 euros each but is well worth it, u get to spend most of the day there, plus the boat stops off at secluded bay for a swim in the sea...Brilliant.

The sunland is very basic but very clean, the room was serviced daily. The food choice in my opinion was very good, lots of salad , breads , and a variety of dishes.
The pools were clean and the area was cleaned freaquantly by the workers.

Me and my partner paid just under £800 for the both of us all inclusive. I would reccommend this hotel to couples and familys

Myself and my sixteen year old son have just returned from a 10 night stay at this hotel and I was abit wary after reading reviews on here about it , well i'm glad I just went ahead and booked it as it is nothing like some of the reviews say , Me and my son loved it .The staff are friendly and hotel is clean, with maid service every day , there are two swiming pools one which is at the back of the hotel which is more quieter , yes you do have to get up early to be able to get a sunbed but it is like that in most hotels now , the airport is close by so yes you do get planes going over quite abit . there is a small waterpark which is a 2 min walk away which costs 10 euros to spend the whole day with free soft drinks included . Guests can use the facalities at the sister hotel the Blue Bay which is great , although you cant use the restaurant ,but if staying here entry to the waterpark is free also it is set right on the beach and the entertainment from billy and his crew is great . There isnt much in the resort itself apart from a few bars and restaurants but there is a bus stop 10 min walk away where you can easily get to Rhodes Town which is well worth a visit so all in all a very nice holiday .
