Im going to be frank as possible...I have travelled the World on a Budget and also been fortunate as I have gotton older to experience some beautifull places around the World.
This is not a 5* Hotel, I would say Low end 4*. We stayed at the Activity Side so I cannot comment on the Deluxe Side.
Weather was amazing and the Staff at the holiday Village ( Restaurant and Kids Club Workers) are fantastic.
Everyone has different expectations in life and on holidays so I can only comment on how I feel our holiday was.
Upon entering the hotel at 2am we were offered a glass of Bubbly and found our Room.
Complex seemed Clean and well kept.
Room-Bed was extremley comfortable ( thats a major plus for me) and it was a basic room with Shower and Bath, 2 double beds pushed together and a double for my 6 year old. Rooms cleaned everyday- I tipped our Maid the first day but really didnt make much difference to our stay- We ended up making our beds ourselfs as She just 'puffed the pillows' and took the dirty towels and that was about it.
Dissapointing there was no Tea or Coffee each day- This was an extra charge
Room was nice, The TV had 1 English Channel.
Food- The Main restaurant and some good choices, I personally thought to feed all the people at the complex they do a great job but after day 10 it was very much the 'same old thing' but least I wasnt cooking or washing up! the staff are so friendly and welcoming. They also have a snack Bar which I never eat in nor the Grill restaurant. WQe did try the Italian Restaurant the service was rushed and the food was a 5/10. but this maybe was a bad day for them!
Drinks are as you would expect the Local Variety. Bottles of Water were 3 euros so we walked down the road to the shop which is around 5 mins away and brought Big bottles of water which were cheap to Brush our teeth etc
Main areas- I didnt get biten but saw lots of people with terrible bites, glad I wore mosey replent at night! The toilets in the communal area wernt very clean and the swimming pools wernt 100% clean. The Pirate Ship and Slide area wasnt very clean either. Lots of Wasps!!! Also the worst Sewage smell I have ever Smelt! Everyday around 2pm you would smell it! I heard a few Mums chatting that there children had ear infections caused by the Pool water.
Kids Clubs- There are GREAT! 5 or 6 a day and the guys and girls work so hard with great activityties indoors and out. 10/10! My daughter loved it! The queing system isnt very streamline I had to que up at 9.30 for a 10 am start to confirm a place as there is only 32 place is the morning club! They have themed characters walking around. Very child orintated. Best Kids hotel I have been too.The Bingo in the evening starts at 8am and then entertertainment starts at 8.30pm I felt this was a late start for my 6 year old and didnt stay past 9pm- Personally not my scene and rather sit on my balcony with a wine! It goes on till 11pm and bless them they do try there best on entertaining the adults and kids but every other night is the same.
Sunbeds- The usual Madness in trying to secure a sunbed in the morning! we went 5 days without being able to get one! I used my Lilo instead!
Not many people go to the Gym on holiday but I do! Very basic Gym - equipment didnt work but did me for a few weeks! Spa is extremley expensive- Treatments were slightly more than what I would pay in central London.
The Beach is a 10 min walk but is a bit dirty and full of stones and pebbles.
Caught a Bus to Old Town around 45 mins away and saw some culture and also heard Lindos was beautifull.
Glad we went in June as August was double the price and I would of been very dissapointed in spending that money on the Rhodes Holiday Village
I wouldnt go again but I am glad I experienced it and my daughter LOVED it! Thats what it boils down to- as long as she is having a scream then I could relax and enjoy the Sun!
