Ok, so it is not quite a 4 star hotel but it has some very nice features, or at least we had some; For example, the shower cabin had a ventilator and a radio incorporated so you could listhen to radio stations while you were showering... We had e wonderful view of the sea as well from our balcony...The maids were very nice and the reception service very helpfull.. You get used to the planes after a couple of hours and you don't notice them anymore.. The sewage smell only gets obvious if you go to the garden which is not very interesting to visit so I don't think that would represent a serious problem...
The food was ok but the menu does tend to repeat... Do mind the fact that greek food menus are different from whestern european ones... There is however a problem regarding the number of chairs around the swiming pool....the chaise-longs get occupied very early in the morning by people who just throw the towels and just leave to have breakfast or something... The hotels private beach is narrow and filled with rocks so it's rather unpleasant...I didn't like the chef's attitude as well who didn't allow me to bring some food to the room because my girlfriend was feeling a little ill...although it is an All Inclusive hotel..
The animation team was great and they understand if you don't want to take part to their program.. I don't know anything about the night program at the hotel because we didn't attend...we preferred to rent a scooter or atv(20-25 euro/day) and go in rhodes old city centre... The main activity is shopping and eating(the clothes ar not high-quality and tend to be a little expensive) but the food is oh... Tavernas everywhere... :) The is a house club exactly in the old centre and a latino music club nearby as well... I strongly reccomend to go to Lindos beach... Extremely beautiful with cristal clean water and sandy beaches..
I wouldn't avoid to go back, not at all, if I did'n enjoy experiencing different places every holiday... I would reccomend it to others...
