My wife and I have returned from a one week stay from 4 - 11 September 2013, at the Finas Apartments in Pefkos Rhodes. We have stayed in this resort many times in different apartments. This was our first experience of Finas and unfortunately there was little to commend it. Although from the outside the apartments look very Greek and well maintained the apartment we were allocated was not clean and had a musty and dirty smell. We tracked this down to the wardrobe where we found dirty blankets and spare pillows which were quickly banished to the balcony where they remained for the duration of the holiday. We arrived on the Thursday and by the following Sunday as the apartment had not been serviced ( no change of towels or bed linen or rubbish including soiled toilet paper) I had to complain to the manager. We were grateful that he arranged for the room to be serviced on the Monday and surprisingly again on the Tuesday. We were leaving on the Wednesday! My sense was that if I had not complained (many do not) we would not have enjoyed any relief! In any event the cleaning undertaken was only superficial which ensures that decent apartments remain shoddy and unkept which is such a shame. The pool and bar area is quite packed, sunbeds very close together and so we spent our time at an adjacent Taverna and pool which was roomy and appealing with pleasant friendly staff. We went to the bar on a couple of occasions for a night cap but found it geared to an 18 - 30 clientele which was surprising as in September there were few of these about ! Lots of middle aged people trying to play the 18 - 30 games - lots of cheap/free shots, banging cymbals, dancing on the bar etc. which to my mind seemed slightly sad. If you choose to remain outside of this group service was very poor. I think that Olympic holidays need to take a good luck at how these apartments are maintained and managed as I really doubt that with the poor standards of cleanliness and questionable levels of management and service to continue to rate the apartments as 3 Star may breach the trades description Act. We will not return as there are plenty of much cleaner and pleasant 2 Star accommodations available within Pefkos and the surrounding area that treat their guests as guests and not as punters to be exploited if at all possible! This is the first time that Olympic has let us down and I am disappointed !
