“A nice hotel at the wrong place, but you will feel really welcome!”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

The surroundings are horrible (Airport is nearby, nothing to do around the hotel), but the hotel is really nice! The staff will help you out with everything (renting a quad/car/etc, telling you about nice places to visit, how to get rid of mosquitos) and is alway kind. Our (large) room had a nice view and the pool was nice and clean. Cleaning was ok, but they forgot to leave a new roll of toiletpaper behind a few times.

If you like an ok price for the family, this is the best part of staying at this hotel. The next best part is that it is ok surroundings. The hotel has one big pool, and one childrens pool. The hygiene in these pools are hard to know anything about. Anyhow it should be mandatory to have showers by the pool at any familyhotel, to shower off all the germs and clorine after a bath!!!! Valsamsis doesn't have that.

The worst part of staying at this hotel is that they take 8 (!!!!) euros pr. night for aircondition. That is BLACKMAILING. Include that when you first order aircondition, it is regulated by a relè that turns off much earlier than it should. I.E.: If you want to adjust it to 17 degrees Celsius, it turns off at about 28 degrees! Therefore, it would be much more effective to open the main door and the 2 doors to the backside, and every window in the apartment, rather than having the aircondition. The backside of this choice is off course the unrelaxed feeling of unsecurity you will get, for instance being burglared in sleep, or waking up and finding your kids are not there! You can try all three solutions: A) Close the doors and the two small windows and turn on the aircondition. You will sleep lousy that night! B) Close the doors but not the two small windows and turn on the aircondition. You sleep lousy that night as well! C) Don't rent the aircondition first, just have all doors and windows open and try not to think of being burglared or losing you kids. You sleep lousy that night anyhow!

Include the next worst thing about this hotel, the airplane noice! Some mornings about 06:30 you will wake up to airplanes seemingly landing at the roof of the building, due to the hotels location, directly beneath the airplanes approach route to the airstrip! The rest of the mornings they start landing between 07:00 and on. You will not fail to wonder, as well, when you lie there in your sunbed a couple of hours later, if or when an airplane will miss the landing strip and hit the hotel and other buildings in its path.

Other things: The cleaning staff is friendly and effective, but not thorough!
The other personell is quite service minded.

Due to the situation in Greece in July 2011, the taxi strike was not nice. If you travel back to your country by night, and you have ordered a travel voucher for taxis, you will probably run into some problems. (As we did.) When we arrived, the strike was begun, but they had set up buses (instead) to the various hotels. The night of the return, there were no buses to pick us up! We were stuck with a receptionist on duty alone, with a taxi strike and no bus. The solution to this, after some discussion with the receptionist, was that he had to drive us to the airport in his private car. This was the most impressive part, that he actually went to the neighbouring hotel and got the reseptionist there to keep an eye of both hotels, when he drove us the 5 km.'s to the aiport. That is serviceminded! He even wouldn't take money for the trip. But all in all: I will not stay at Valsamis one more time!

We stayed at the Valsami July 08 for 2 weeks. Nice apartments, very clean. However, you only get clean towels every 3 days. The place is very well run, very clean and is excellent value. The pool is a good size, if a little cold at times! The restaurant is fine, however we only ate there a couple of times.
The hotel sits in between the small towns of Kremasti and Trianda. There are a few other hotels around the Valsami and a couple of restaurants and bars, otherwise it's pretty quiet. The beach is about 300 metres away. The beach is clean, however it tends to be a pebble and shingle beach. Perhaps not ideal for very young children.
Kremsati is about a 10 to 15 minute walk away. It's not a bad place, more of a working town rather than a tourist town. There a re several restaurants there and a few bars.
Trianda is more of a tourist place, with lots of bars and restaurants. There are loads of hotels by the beach. This is a much busier and livelier resort. A taxi to Trianda will cost around 6 euros.
Rhodes town is great - especially the Old Town. Well worth a visit. If going from the Valsami it cost abut 11 euros in a taxi.

We were the only Brits at the hotel, as the majority or holidaymakers were from Holland. This in itself was not a problem, but it did mean that often my 10 year old son, did not have other children to play with. The Valsami and other hotels in the area seem to cater mostly for the Dutch.

Otherwise it's a well run hotel, with fairly good accommodation, clean and safe. An average main meal from the restaurant will cost about 8 euros per person, with a beer costing around 2.50 euros. There are a couple of restaurnats very close to the hotel, but they can be fairly expensive. Better going into Kremsati or Trianda - more choice!

If you're looking for somewhere fairly quiet - the Valsami could be for you. A good family place. If you're looking for a wild time - I would go elsewhere!

we have had the pleasure to have our holiday at valsamis for the fifth time.this is the best deal your money gonna get you.
big clean rooms(sleeps 4),very nice pool,plenty of sunbeds and very nice staff.
there is heavy aircraft-noise around the resort at times,but you get used to it after a day or 2.
there was 4 of us(38,39,12,15) and at aprox 50 euros a night it is a steal.
i have been to rhodos almost every year since 1986 and have stayed 2-5 stars hotels but this is the best for the money.
taxi is 10-12 euros to town,rent a car is from 30 euros/day.
TRY IT.

We stayed here in September 2006 and could not have asked for a better place to stay. The room we had was spacious, comfortable and clean with a small balcony and seating area which was lovely to sit out in and eat breakfast every morning. The rooms were cleaned every morning and we had new towels left every day....the staff were exceptionally friendly and were very helpful with directions and organising day trips for us. The pool was very nice and the area for sunbathing was kept very clean. The bar/cafe staff were also very helpful and organised a surprise cocktail at midnight for my boyfriend's birthday!

The hotel is 2 mins away from a local store which stocks everything you could require, from food and alcohol to clothes. There were a few local restaurants and i would highly recommend walking the 10-15 mins into Kremasti town to go for dinner or drinks.

I would definitely recommend a trip into Rhodes old town and walking about to see the sights. For a fun day out, Faliraki water park was amazing and i would also suggest Petaloudes and the butterfly valley.

I had been to Athens a few years ago so had a rough idea of what Rhodes would be like, but my boyfriend had never been before and fell in love with it. If you are looking for a relaxed holiday then i would definitely suggest this hotel. You are not too far away from the busier towns if you want to go out and the local transport is very good. All round an amazing holiday! I will definitely be returning this year!
