“Happy Days Great Holiday Destination”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013

Lovely new hotel, easy access to the sea which is a five minute walk from the resort, shops, bars and restaurants all within walking distance. Rhodes town is a short bus ride away and a great day out! The food was of a great standard and the staff work long shifts though they continue to maintain a positive and helpful attitude.W found this hotel of very accommodating with free wifi in reception only which is ideal for the teens. However, I would recommend this resort as a couples destination as there are not many children/teenagers,though this didn't stop us from having a good time. I found that the toilets in the room weren't thoroughly cleaned though the beds themselves were very clean and comfortable.

Myself, mum and sister came away to Happy Days for 2 weeks of sunshine and relaxation and thats exactly what we got. We arrived on the 2nd July in the Evening and we shown to our room. The room was clean and tidy and baisc which is all we needed as we only slept in there and got changed.

We paid just short of £500 for the whole 2 weeks including flight and we got what we paid for. The hotel staff are new to the game and very much learning on the job however they were never too busy to sort things out when you needed them. Manos was lovely but seemed slightly stressed over people saying bad things as clearly they werent true... At the end of the day he just wants you to enjoy your time there which we did....

The food was fine, you cant
expect to just eat british food when you go to another country to it was nice to experience some greek cuisine and there were some english things like chips and pizza on occasion...

Breakfast was nice, lunch had plenty or warm dishes or salad and evening meal was always different to lunch which was good... There were issues i felt with certain people who seemed to think it appropriate to just take as much of the watermelon/fruit as they could carry which sometimes meant there wasnt much left for others but some people are just like that...

Whilst we were there, there were a mixture of English, mainly Russian and some french families... Greek night helped get all the holiday makers chatting and joining in with the dancing...

The room was basic and clean enough, the bathroom wasnt always well cleaned and the bedding could do with being changed more but it wasnt a massive issue as it was too warm to get into the bedding anyway... Air con is available but to be honest as they have mosquito nets fixed to one side of the balcony door you can keep that open and didnt really need it...

It is close to the airport so you do get the planes going nearby but they arent too frequent and yoi do get used to it and as they are quite low it was actually interesting to sit and see which ones they were... Didnt really get any through the night which was great...

All in all we had a fab holiday and will happily return... Manos and family were lovely, the chef did a fab job and Kostas and Yannis were just brilliant...

We also met a fabulous mother and daughter from Hartlepool which we spent alot of the holiday with drinking and eating and cant wait to meet up with them again soon for a post holiday reunion! See you soon Carol and Danielle!

my partner and i booked summer dreams 17th-34th july 2013,we arrived to be told it was overbooked and we would be transferred to happy days,(along with three other couples)on first arrival hotel looked clean and comfortable,we soon discovered it was the most awful hotel i have ever stayed in,drinks are not all inclusive,only certain drinks at certain times of the day,the food is mostly inedible and unidentifiable with staff unable to tell you what it is,evening food is served between 7-9pm,but if you have not got there before 7-30 there is usually nothing left,the bar is mainly unmanned and if there is no staff the owners will very reluctantly serve you a drink,as if they are paying for it,glasses are always 3-4 full,owners constantly screaming at staff in front of ,guests,the only thing the maid did in our room was empty the bin and make beds,bath and sink were not wiped the whole week we were there,the beds were not changed once and we only had clean towels halfway through the week,we ate out a few times and drunk out every night,i feel this hotel should only be a 2 star or less

myself & my friend booked summer dreams but were told they overbooked & was sent here, we had a brilliant time, half way through we was told that we had to go back to the other hotel, we asked if we could stay here & manos made it happen, we have had a great time here & met some lovely people, its clean & spacious with a good view of the sea, and every thing is close to hand, at the pool you will get a much needed breeze which is lovely, the staff really go all out to make you feel welcome, this is there first season so if things are not right for you just ask & they will do there best to sort it out, The owner Katerina & Manos are brilliant & yannis & kostas are so fun, all the staff are great & helpful,the rooms are a good size & clean, the restraint has good food & plenty of choices, in all we had a fantastic time there, so thank you all for a great time new friends & Staff...x from Fran & Kelly.

Room Tip: sea view, poolside.

6th July - 14th July 2013
Where to start,
Well when myself and my partner booked this holiday in the middle of June all the reviews were brill up until the week before we went, (oh panic!!) do not listen to the bad reviews we took our 5year old daughter and Manos couldnt of been more helpful.

Our room was cleaned every day the pool got cleaned every morning (our daughter called him the garden man) the food was really good always new dishes to try every lunch and dinner the chef did a great job (the Friday night was the best 'Greek night' food was fab we also had a Greek themed night with dancers who got everyone up dancing around the pool!) drinks yes 12-12for beer n sprits after 6 (gotta have a drink problem if u can't wait till then)

On the whole this was a very clean and pleasant hotel to stop in, staff were friendly couldnt of asked for much more we all come home last Sunday wanting to go straight back! (maybe next year!)

After reading all the bad reviews about this hotel I have to say I was pleasantly surprised !! The hotel is a family run hotel and it is their first year, so they are still learning and are taking all criticism on board, especially the bar being unmanned, but i found Catarina (mother) and Manos (son) very helpful and friendly. The hotel is clean and tidy and the food was good plenty of choice, but you do have to try Greek cuisine. All in all we had a very enjoyable 2 weeks holiday and have come back home fully relaxed. So i would like to thank all the staff for making our holiday very memorable and enjoyable, this is a 3 star hotel and for the price we paid we got a bargain. I suggest if people want 5 star then they are going to have to pay the extra. So thanks again Manos and staff hope you do not miss us too much, i think you will know who it is when i say Barry White !!!We would also like to thank our friends from Leeds we had some good laughs, see you all again soon.

We stayed on 6th June for 11 nights, We booked all inclusive, myself and girlfriend. Bar from 12 to 12. No shorts served until after 6.00. Sometimes when you wanted to be served you had to wait for the receptionist, as there wasn't always a bar person there. Ice cream only served from 11 to 12 and 5 till 6. When asked for ice cream at dinnertime they said it was out of the all inclusive times. No diet pop available at all which as a diabetic it was a blow as we had to go to the shop next door as told by the manager it was only a 3 star. Breakfast trays were always empty until someone asked. Tables not cleaned away quickly, not enough staff. No choice of sweets oranges one day and melon another day. We spoke to Hays travel to complain and they said they were go-betweens so were not responsible for our problems and to take it up with the hotel. As we paid Hays travel we expected them to take responsibility for our problems. They said we needed to tell the rep in the town but we did not know of any reps available. We did tell the hotel manager. We will never go to a family run hotel again, it had been only opened about 3 weeks and was not established. This hotel should have been inspected for suitability as an all inclusive holiday. These were new people who were running the hotel and they were definitely watching the pennies. This did not feel like an holiday.The pool was the only highlight of the holiday. Avoid this hotel if you want all inclusive.
Steve and Tree.
