If you expect to have a relaxing holiday at this hotel, security staff and bar staff were very unfriendly and intimidating, bar staff threw the food towards the kids, windows of dining room are opened up wide first thing in the morning allowing flies and other insects to crawl all over the food, flies in the milk jugs.
When I complained to the manager I got the old shrugged shoulders, the hotel is the sister hotel to a much more modern one next door ( your travel agent won't tell you this)it is very much the poor relation.
Rhodes is my favourite Greek Island, I love the Greek people, but this hotel is run by Athens Greeks BEWARE of the difference, I had to hire a car and travel down the Island to another village where we rented an apartment for the final 8 days of my holidays, this turned out to be a fab move and we dined out most nights, had we continued to stay in the Alfa I am convinced we would have got food poisoning, I complained to Thomas Cook on our return, they were not interested.
