We stayed at this hotel 2 weeks at the end of May 2014. It was a very pleasant stay. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Communicating with them was easy they understood and spoke perfectly English, and also German. Room and hotel over all was very clean. In the mornings I even saw cleaner cleaning car road and washing sidewalks :)
Location of hotel was perfect equally distanced from the city of Rhodes and Lindos. To both places plenty of buses with reasonable price were stopping next to a hotel. Also one of the best beach Tsampika beach was very close and very good to go with bus. We also rented a car for 5 days from the hotel and managed to explore most of the island with that time, as the hotel lied almost in the middle of the island. I also liked a Kolymbia beach that was about 300 meters from hotel. It was very good for snorkeling.
Best part of the hotel was dinner. Breakfast was usual and nothing special. Lunch we didn’t have because we were always exploring the island and eating elsewhere. But the dinner was something that we were waiting especially. There were plenty of choices and lots of new things to try. At this point special thanks go to Yiannis the hotel chef who made it all happen. Every day there were lots of different foods that you could choose from, starting from cold plates and ending with various main course selections. There was also good choice for vegetarian food and also something gluten free every day. Also every day at least on main course was Greece food and chefs encouraging talk and introduction of different foods made me try lots of new things and I never had to disappoint. Also for people who are afraid to try new things there were lots of things to eat. Chef is thinking and taking care so that no one will be hungry.
I would recommend this hotel if you are looking a place to stay at Rhodes.
