Just come back from an 11 night stay at the Kolymbia Star Hotel. It has to be the cleanest hotel we have stayed in, the rooms are spotless and are cleaned every day. The pool areas are great, the slides and the children's slides were fab, the only downside was that people reserved the sunbeds but I think this happens everywhere.
The food was good, you may want to go out out for a couple of meals as we found that it is a little a bit like eating in a canteen and so you don't get that going out for dinner experience. There was always plenty of choice, lovely salads and fresh fruit.
The bar drinks were great, served in proper glasses and the white wine was lovely. Tried a few cocktails which were nice too.
The staff work really hard and I take my hat off to the animation team who were great.
There is a bus stop outside the hotel and we caught buses to Lindos and Rhodes Town, very cheap and the children are half price. There is a free bus service to the Water Park which leaves at 10am and returns at 5pm. The water park was a disappointment, not as good as the one Cyprus or others we have visited and quite expensive, you had to walk a long way to each slide and the floor was burning hot, bit of a concrete jungle.
The beach nearest the hotel is lovely, sandy and has amazing rock pools so if you've got kids bring a fishing net and bucket. Great snorkelling.
The hotel is situated at the edge of the resort but I feel you have the best part of the beach plus it's only a 20 minute walk to the main street.
All in all a lovely holiday and would recommend this hotel.
