The Poseidonia Aparthotel delivers exactly what is to be expected from an aparthotel. Our room in the main building was a two roomer, sparsely decorated in terms of both decoration, furniture and utensils.
The main bed room had two beds, not to our surprise quite hard. A relatively small tv (didn't matter - we weren't here to watch tv), a couple of night stands and that was more or less it. The secondary bed room had two separate, equally hard beds and nothing more.
Our balconies faced west, which would have been nice, had it not been for the four story building Blue Eyes blocking our view of anything other than another balcony. Fortunately, the Blue Eyes building did not have any residents at this time of the season.
The pool area was nice with a pool bar serving all sorts of drinks and snacks, and there was a pool for kids as well as grown ups. Apart from the water being as cold as the Behring sea, it was a nice pool area.
The buffet for both breakfast and dinner were of great variety, though mostly in quality. Breakfast usually offered the same things day after day, a relatively safe bet. The dinner did vary, and there were days with excellent dishes such as Stifado and Kleftiko. Most of the dishes were underseasoned, which I can understand, to better suit the needs of the clientel.
All in all, the hotel is very noisy - I swear, I could hear the guy go to the toilet one floor up and two roms away.
And yet, I would love to come back.
Why, do you ask?
Because of the people and the location. I have yet to meet such a dedicated, friendly and service minded crew at any of the hotels - especially chartered hotels. The location, close to the airport, just a €9 drive from Rhodes City and a 5 minute walk to the beach, makes this the ideal get-away-from-the-concrete-hell in ie Falirakis.
If you have the chance and don't mind the everyday noise from actually living here - not just staying in a hotel-exclussive area of the island - then stay here. And please give our best to Costas, Christos and the rest of the gang. They are really, really lovely people, every single one of them.
