We have been to Doreta Beach twice before this was our third stay.
Before we left we read lots of reviews about the English being sent to other hotels as this hotel had been double booked due to a computer systems problem in January when they lost all bookings from last year
However, on arrival we had a room on the 2nd floor - this had got to be the most basic rooms in the hotel, this floor is the only floor that had not been modernised, the air conditioning units made a noise and you could not sleep. After one night we asked to move as we could not sleep. The hotel were very good and we looked at 5 rooms on the same floor and only one had a quiet air conditioning unit. One of our party moved into that room, my daughter and I stayed in out original room, after two days an engineer came to our room and managed to quieten the unit down, however, we than had an awful stench and had to buy an air freshener spray to stop the smell. Our other party had ants running all over the bedroom coming from the Balcony Room 256, The food was repetitive seemed to go in a 3 day cycle but there was food for everyone from chips to Greek foods. There is a food area that cooks fresh meat at lunch and tea time. The bar staff are lovely and very friendly. There is not a lot of English at this hotel, however, there is Russians who are totally ignorant, you have got to be as bad as them at pushing and shoving. The pool area, Reception and Dining areas are always kept very clean, the only really tidy Toilets for both men and women are in the reception area. The staff obviously use them and they are to a very tidy standard.
Whilst on our stay I asked if we could go and look at a Jacuzzi Room, they obliged and gave us a key to a 4th floor room, when you walked in you could see the furnishings were to a higher standard and the bed looked a lot more comfortable than the rocks we were sleeping on. The Jacuzzi bath I was not impressed it was a normal bath with jets and a glass screen, on the outside of the screen facing the bed the water had obviously leaked and it had gone black did not look nice. The balcony area was quiet a bit bigger as well. It was a little more plush but I would still not rate it a 5 star.
I must admit my first and second stay were lovely - this third stay was disappointing both with the room and outside toilet facilities.
Would I go back - I really don't know - because we are familiar with the hotel and know our way around this is an easy option to go back but I would have to have a room on the 5th floor to ensure that I was comfortable.
I am disappointed but well if you want a cheap all inclusive holiday and don't want to spend too much time in your room it is nice.
- 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
