“Do NOT stay here at the "Dirty Disco Pool Bar"”
Reviewed 29 August 2008

DO NOT stay at this dirty unfriendly Hotel. Big flashing lights on roof that flash Disco Pool Bar over resort. This was not in the brochure pictures. Had to move rooms as over looking bar so very nosiy at night. On greek night they took our table and chairs from our balcony so we could not sit out that night ! All ground floor corridor smells. Pool had a one inch of grime and was not cleaned once. Bar tender the most unfriendly greek I have ever met. Even food served during day is rather dull & luke warm.The one good thing was the Hotel was so bad & dirty we went to the beech which is the best in Rhodes. Bathroom had hole cut out so it would open past sink. Balcony grotty. This Hotel is tired and the worst I have stayed at with my family in over ten years going to greece. There are some wonderfull tavernas such as Philosophia & Flyers on the beech, but the Hotel is a no, no matter how cheap.

  • Liked — It was so poor & dirty we spent day at beech instead of by the pool
  • Disliked — Dirty noisy & unfriendly

Reviewed 27 August 2008

my partner and i stayed here from the 13th to the 20th aug 08, for a budget hotel it was what was expected, i had read the reviews of others after i booked and thought oh my god, but i was surprised, good points very well located, friendly staff, only had to ask and things were done ( small things like directions, best beaches etc)
rooms are what you would expect from a budget hotel basic but that's Greece, bad points other than only towels changed once in the week, the bar stayed open till around 01:30 am which in its self was not bad but the music had a base line that i am sure you would have been able to hear in the uk, ( well its was loud to say the least)
this was every night except for the last night, so ask for a room away from the bar.............

I stayed here with my friend and I wished I hadn't. I found it to be very unfriendly. We had to clean out the pool every morning as it was full of cockroaches and leaves from the surrounding garden areas. I found the owner to be extremely unhelpful and down right rude. I would recommend that people spend their money elsewhere and not go to this hotel from hell.

Reviewed 14 July 2008

Date: June 2008
Reviewer: Richard White & Party Lancashire

My Wife and I plus two friends have returned from 2 week stay in Pefcos Rhodes. After booking the holiday I found this site and read what were horrific reports suggesting that people had experienced holidays from hell at this hotel. With this in mind we arrived at the Thalia feeling very apprehensive to say the least but we need not have worried.

The staff were excellent the rooms were clean of reasonable size, towels and bedding was changed regularly and there was NO SEWAGE SMELL

Bearing in mind that the hotel is only rated as a 2*+ it was as good as if not better that many places we have stayed at in Greece and Greek Islands they are nearly all very basic unles you are prepared to pay a lot higher price
.
Our rooms were located overlooking the Bar/Pool area so consequently there was some noise late into the early hours of the morning, not music that was switch off about 12-15 but people could be heard talking and laughing. If you want a quiet room ask for one away from the bar area at the front of the hotel.

A word of warning there is no kettle and if you want A/C it will cost you 41 Euros a week (most places charge the same) we were lucky enough to not need it in June.

If you are thinking of going have no fears, some people are just unlucky or complain about everything. Just remember what you are paying, if you want 4* then be prepared to pay double the price.

I would recommend this hotel and Pefcos is a fantastic resort with plenty of excellent dining places at good prices you can't go wrong you could get a 3 course meal for 8.90 Euros

We will be returning to the Thalia in the near future

Have a nice Holiday
