Ok so first of all I just want to say to people complaining about late transfers that has nothing to do with the hotel so isn’t relavent!
Ok so I just got back today from Doreta beach after 2 weeks all inclusive there.
Room. – we were placed on the 1st floor the room was basic as always had a double bed and one single perfect for us three adults! clean!- a good sign of a clean hotel is no cockroaches never saw one!!
The shower was powerful, occasionally was cold at time but this was only when we showered at about 5-6 which is the busiest time I guess! My family visit the Greek islands every year and – if anyone complains about the bath I have to say you’re lucky you have one most Greek hotels showers are the whole bathroom floor with a drain!!!
The biggest issue of our room was the air-con as the system was rubbish (apparently the first 2 floors are to be refurbished in the next year!) but in order to make your room cooler I suggest opening your balcony door through the night with the curtain over to stop mozzys coming in. please think of it this way, your room is only there for sleep and washing that’s it! If your spending any more time in there you might as well be as home!!
Food- the main restaurant had a great choice of food throughout the week with themes such as Italian, greek and fish. Deserts are very good!. In the evening however the dress code means men cannot wear shorts and vests. But as long as your shorts cover the knee caps and worn with a shirt or evening t-shirt you will be fine. If all else fails put on a dress and pretend you’re a girl because we get away with it!!
Outside there is a taverna which you can use at lunch or dinner instead of the main restaurant as they have no certain clothes rule.
The beach self-serve bar has snacks in the afternoon such as pasta, hot dogs, tosties, icecream and salad, with crepes every other day.
And the pool bar has a large range of all inclusive drinks and all soft drinks are good brand names!!
A La Carte- you have to book a few days before but it is so good! There is a set 5 course meal and the presentation is amazing! But I highly recommend you have a starter/soup, get a salad to share, main course, and then a desert or its too much to eat.
Staff- restaurant staff are courteous and professional. The pool bar staff are good some don’t really talk. And the main reception staff are useful and full of information!!
The beach is beautiful and its where you get the best tan! But do make sure you buy some water shoes before as there are too many stones in the water.
The pool is large, the only negative point is only one small corner is shallow the rest is for swimmers.
Sunbeds- I would get up at 7.30 go down and get some the first week it was packed ! whereas the second week dead! So it’s really dependant on how many is in the hotel.
Things to do- Rhodes town for shopping- the old part, has so many nice shops. Also down there by the sea you can go on many different boat trips. There is a good waterpark.
This hotel was great for us, but there wasn’t many English, as it’s a French company that own it it was mainly them Russians and germans.
Overall I would give this hotel a 8/10 air-con and a shallower pool would have improved the score.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Doreta Hotel is a modern and comfortable beachfront resort and spa property, located on the west coast of Rhodes Island, near the pretty village of Tholos, at a distance of 17km from the centre of Rhodes town. It's an ideal choice for those who would like to combine the unrivalled views of the blue Aegean with cooling breeze of the west coast. Has a great atmosphere, not only providing an excellent environment for families, but equally suitable for all guests. The spacious lawns leading down to the tree-lined beach is a fun place for children to play carelessly and safely. Hotel is an excellent base for exploring the countless beauties of the island, but it also provides an opportunity for a relaxed walk around taverns, shops and the traditional village of Tholos. It is no wonder that one third of our guests repeat their visit to our hotel. ... more less
