I researched this hotel online before we booked , but as with alot of people you tend to wonder what people are moaning about, given the amount paid for their holidays, but I have to say as a general holiday it was awful but as a honeymoon as this was it was utterly heartbreaking.
We arrived at the hotel at about 05.30 to be greeted by a very irate man shouting from the main door that there were no rooms, we got inside to be told they were overbooked, we were bundled (and that is the only way to describe it ) into the owners old BMW ant taken to another hotel out in the middle of nowhere, to be dumped in the foyer with the night watchman as they had no rooms either because the cleaners didn't get there till 08.00
By this time I was in floods of tears and wanting to go home, we waited in the foyer till about 09.30 and we were given a room, which I think was on top of a sewer as the smell was awful, we were then moved to another room, we then had a call to say someone from the Georgia would be coming to pick us up at 6pm, we again sat in the foyer from 6pm to 7pm waiting, we were picked up and taken to the Georgia where we had a drink and went to bed as that was the first time we were able to sleep since 9pm the previous night.
Everything seemed to go ok for a while, but my husband sat on one of the plastic chairs on the balcony and it gave way, hitting his head on the wall on the way down, the owners son accused us of 'playing ' on the chair and charged us 15 Euro's to replace it, please bear in mind that both myself and my husband are in our 50's !
The atmosphere with this family was very uncomfortable, we tried very hard to keep ourselves to ourselves but the incidents just kept coming, we were called liars by the cleaner in front of all the other guests when I very politely asked for clean towels (as we hadn't had a clean one in 5 days)
It became unbearable, so we hired a car for our remaining time, ate our breakfast and then went out for the day, returning for the evening meal and a quick drink and then back up to our room to watch our one and only tv channel.
The island of Rhodes is absolutely beautiful and we travelled all around it, stopping at fantastic beaches and looking round the history laden towns, that part of the holiday was fab.
Shame about the hotels owner and family !
