“Superb holiday”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Well i was initially aprehensive after reading some of the reviews.
How wrong they were, the hotel was clean and staff friendly and helpful... especiallly Taisha the receptionist.
The rooms were cleaned daily and the staff work very hard. The food was repeated, but a lot of variety so something for everyone. The entertainment not great but Dex and Billy work very hard to keep the kids amused.Sunland is a smaller hotel alongside the bigger Blue bay, i preferred the sunland as on many occasions we had the front pool to ourselves.
Be careful if hiring a bike on the island, we did and were not told that helmets were law, as 98% dont wear them, and the hirer did not warn us.
All in all a great holiday, dont be worried, just enjoy.

stayed at the sunland and had a great room overlooking the pool the room was basic but clean and the staff friendly if you and your mrs want a quet holiday this place is for you. TIP; if you want a hot shower have one no later than 4;30pm after that its cold if you are going to book ask not to be put in a ground floor room they are very dark and no sun gets to them. Unfortunately you have to eat at the blue bay the food was not good and mealtimes was a battleground if you were lucky enough to get a table you had to fight your way against the many ignorant germans and russians. Around the complex roams dogs these animals are riddled with fleas and at night they sleep on the comfy sofas that are around the cocktail bar in the complex this to me is totally out of order and i complained to the manager who just shrugged and said "what can i do"? the beach a bit gritty with stones and you have to pay 3 euros each a day for a sunbed dont bother paying for wifi as you can go just down the road to the bars and get it for free . sadly the immediate area does not have that much of a choice of bars/restaurants i felt a little too secluded although you can go to the main town for around 9 euros but that can mount up over a week all in all i really enjoyed the sunland but having to share food/entertainment with the blue bay let it down

Room Tip: dont have a ground floor room!!

This is the 2nd time we have been there now, and still love it. We were given a better room this time and the children had their own room. It is safe and secure for them.

The hotel is linked to the Blue Bay hotel but is quieter than the main hotel, given you the option of the lively entertainment, but being able to escape to the quet hotel at the end of it.

We had to go to the restaurant at the hotel this time as the Sunland one was being renovated. The staff are lovely there, and so helpful.

We hired a car from the hotel this time and went travelling more. This places get better each time we go. Quite a few Russians there which unfortunately made things a little unfriendly at time as the children just push in when queuing for both food and drinks.

The entertainment staff are brilliant, and the greek night is worth the extra money. It was lovely being able to spend our 9th wedding anniversary there and will definately be going back with the kids again.

Sunland is basic but clean, pools were good, waterpark was very good, i enjoyed my stay and i was there with my two teenage children and my mother, food was ok, but they did repeat the same menu most days but there was always something for even the fussiest of eaters, i would go back, only grumble is they said laundrette on site, so we packed allowing for this so a bit disappointed to find out there wasnt, lesson learnt !! all in all for price was a good place to stay

Room Tip: 16 euros by taxi to Rhodes old town, bus stop is a good walk from hotel,

we just came back from an 11 night holiday. I went with my partner and two children age 2 and 6.
we all had an amazing time!
the sunland is one of 3 hotels on the complex with a small waterpark based in the middle.
all meals are taken at the blue bay which i felt was alot better as the sunland was kept clean tidy and quiet
out of all 3 hotels the sunland although being the smallest for us and some other holiday makers was the best. we stayed in a family room which was very nice with two bedrooms.
the entertainment was very good starting with a mini disco then the adult entertainment.
i would say get to breakfast for 8am lunch at 12.30 and dinner for 6.45 to make sure you dont have to Que. and then get a seat at the entertainment.
if you drive i recommend hiring a car to drive around the island, its very beautiful and quite alot to see and do.
defiantly invest in beach shoes as the pebbles can be a little annoying but the sea is lovely and warm.
i honestly couldn't fault any of the holiday everyone was very friendly and helpful!

Room Tip: request a family room on the end of each corridor 738 being the best for the same price

The Sunland sits in beautifully kept gardens, with loads of space, and boasts two fantastic pools. The room was basically furnished, but the furniture was of a good quality, including very comfortable beds. The bathroom is basic, but there were lashings of hot water at all times. The room also boasted air conditioning at no additional charge, as well as a fridge. There was maid service 6 days a week with clean, but not particularly fluffy, towels every day.
Meals were taken at the Blue Bay over the road in one of 2 restaurants, either the main one in the hotel or the one overlooking the beach - a location many upper class restaurants would give their eye teeth for. The only issue was with the breakfasts, where the facilities were badly overstretched, resulting in lack of cups and long queues.
You have the use of multiple pools of varying sizes and liveliness, as well as the beach. Try sitting outside the beach bar after dinner watching the sunset - magical!
There was aircraft noise, but after the first day you don't really notice it.
Overall, a great holiday, with just a few minor grouches - we'd go back tomorrow and we only just got home!!!
