“not 4 stars hotel!!!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We returned a few days ago from Sunshine Rhodes. Nice hotel, but very low quality food. They have no shame Submit fruit is not edible, lacking a variety of food, desserts awful, and every day repeats the same food recycled. The room where we were was very simple, very low maintenance level, no plasma screens but very old TV sets. Safe did not work, sheets with holes. Not high standard of cleanliness. Entertainment Staff nice, but a lot fee. For example if you want to play bingo, it costs 5 euros. Very nice public areas.

I enjoyed my staying at the hotel, especially with the amazing view we got with our room.

But for one thing is that the personal need to be more service minded. Some were really really nice and always tried to help you in the best way, and others couldnt care less.
But Animation team was really nice and funny!
But if you are going to have an Animation team that does all the entertaining + all the workouts, for gods sake have someone that knows how to do it!

I´m a trainer myself and there was one girl that was amazing, an English beauty named Lucy, that didnt get the workouts everyday because all the other ones wanted to show off.
Lucy always had a great smile and she knew how to do the workouts correctly!

There was one guy, Rio, that seemed to be the head of Animation team and he likes to show off himself, but he sucks when it comes to correct training.
If you are going to hold an Water Aerobic class you need to do it correctly, and many of the women got offended about some of his moves and his lack of control.
Its dangerous to hold an workout for people if you dont know the technique.

Also, I was scared to notice that some of the personal had not recieved there paycheck even if they had worked for 2 months with is so unacceptable!!!!!!!!!!
There is no way these people that have been working for 6 days, at least 10 hours a day, should not get payed!

I think this place need a serious change, and they need to understand that there personal is the one that is going to keep the people arround.

Room Tip: Choose the house Apollo! try to get the top rooms with a sea view, amazing!

Really enjoyed our second stay at this hotel. Great food, drinks and entertainment. The animation team work really hard to get everyone involved but aren't overly pushy if you just want to chill. Would definitely recomend the hotel and will probably go again ourselves.

Arrived here on 12th May for 10 nights and had an absolutely amazing time! On arrival we were greeted by a lovely receptionist Maria who gave us a beautiful sea view room in the first block. These are lovely renovated rooms and after speaking to other people, a lot better than the blocks towards the back of the complex.

The food was amazing for an all inclusive hotel- a massive variety - paticularly loved the Greek and Mexican night in the restaurant. You can book to eat in the Greek and Italian restaurant once during your stay but i wouldn't really recommend it as the food in the main restaurant is MUCH nicer- although ok for a change. There is also a snack bar next to the pool which is open 12-4 serving pizza, chips, icecream etc.

Stunning hotel and stunning location- there is plenty of shops/bars outside of the hotel and you can get a taxi for around 12 euros to Rhodes Town. Would deffo recommend getting a taxi to the hotel from airport as we made the mistake of getting a transfer which we were on for about 45 minutes and then went PAST the airport again( they had took 2 people to the opposite side of the island and then the rest of us the other side!) completely ridiculous took about an hour and a half overall and a taxi would have only cost 15 euros.

And of course the best part of the hotel is the ANIMATION TEAM- Rio, Andy, Lucy, Cerys, Kassey, Laura, Keith and Nemo are AMAZING :) Completely made our holiday- they make a massive effort to get everyone involved and getting to know each guest . This hotel would be nothing without them - they will make your holiday. They put on some fantastic shows and this was at the start on the season so I am sure they have much more up their sleeves! We particularly enjoyed the Abba rendition by Lucy - haha!

Will definitely return- Tracey and Lauren x

We have two boys aged 9 & 6 and went to this hotel from 27 may to 5 june. We all loved this hotel. We had a family room which was really spacious with 2 balconies overlooking the gardens. The hotel grounds are huge with a wide range of places to sit and all with the beach on your doorstep. Great food, helpful staff and a BRILLIANT animation team, the best we have ever had! They are funny, talented and really friendly. Special mention to Rio, Lucy and Keith who were great. I would recommend this hotel to any family.

Room Tip: Our family room was spacious and quiet with a garden view.

We spent two wonderful weeks in May at this great hotel with fantastic location close to the private beach, close walking distance to the shops and bars. The hotel was nice and clean, with good service, gorgeous garden and a funny creative animation team. The check in was quick, reception and all staff were very helpful, when you meet any problems, solve everything in a fast. The food was good and choice was great for everyone, main restaurant and bars staff was very friendly.
We had a superior room, it was new renovated, spacious, tidy and comfortable with nice sea and pool view, private furniture balcony.
The private beach is beautiful and the pools were all lovely. We had no problem with getting sun loungers on the beach or around the pool in the early morning. The Aegean Sea is clear but sometimes was windy at the beach.
A/C wasn't working till 1st June, air temperature was about 27° - 30°C or more. Sometimes was noisy at the night, that disturb to sleep with open windows. There was evening entertainment every night at the pool bar, if you want a quiet hotel this is not it!
We had rent a car directly in the hotel, the service was great, and visited several surrounding places of Rhodes Island, west and east coast. Rhodes is a very nice and landscape Island with different beaches and beautiful views, mountains interspersed with plains. We also took the bus that stops near to the hotel (10 min walking, depart every 15 min) and went to Rhodes town and got to know historical places and port area. Highly recommend travel to Simi Island from Rhodes town by ferry.
We have enjoyed the atmosphere in this hotel and beach.

Room Tip: Supperior rooms with sea view are really renovated and comfortable
