The first thing you notice is how friendly the staff are both the Greek staff and the First Choice reps.
Rooms - Really spacious and immaculate. Cleaners came every day and the place was kept spotless, the whole resort is really clean and well kept. We went for a swim up so avoided the lounger issues altogether as we had our own. The kids rooms have playstations and DVDs but the range of discs at reception is limited so would advise you kids to take their favourites. It is nice for them to get a break from the sun at times. That said there is lovely warm breeze the whole time you are there.
Entertainment - Was not expecting much but it was excellent and the entertainment team were really funny. My kids absolutely adored them. It became the highlight of the day and with the exception of me all my family ended up on stage at some point in the holiday. The entertainment team miss British chocolate though so if you bring them some you will get spoiled especially a Toffee Crisp. The kids club is good but it is only 1.5hour slots which sucks if you wanted to use the spa. The range of activities is okay, my kids got bored quite quickly and the safety gear for older kids in watersports is OTT and put my two off altogether. That said my daughter loved the evening entertainment as she had met some friends and they went to the chocolate parties, movie night etc together. My son preferred to watch the shows with us.
Facilities - The water park is great and never over crowded.
Restaurants - We were in the deluxe area so could use the al la carte restaurant which was well above our expectations. The waiting staff were so friendly and really lovely to the kids and the chefs were really talented, the food was gorgeous.
Drinks - The cocktails were great, I thought the wine was fine but would advise you to get it from the sports bar as it seemed to be better and you can't go wrong with sparkly wine so I stuck to that. The drinks in the al la carte restaurant were good quality. The kids loved the slushies, ice cream and popcorn too so we were all happy.
Excursions - Were good but I would wait till you get there to book. Lindos, Chalki and the Valley of Butterflies were all lovely and Rhodes is great but busy - I would go at night by taxi instead of through the resort.
