Having read so many differing reports on this hotel after I had already booked through teletext we were a little apprehensive about what to expect.
The food is typically greek with three or four hot options and always salad available including some greek vine leaves wrapped around rice etc. The food was good and fresh and served by Mike the chef who was happy to talk to the guests. We never felt that we were being watched going for the second and third plates of BBQ or pasta or breakfast.
Someone had mentioned that there were signs everywhere but I could only find one asking that food not be taken to the rooms. There were barely any signs at all which was nice coming from the UK where the Health and Safety brigade would have a field day in Greece.
The room was clean and we were prepared for the 5euro per night Air Conditioning fee and gladly paid it - although in the day time if we had the main door and the balcony door open the wind really did breeze through the room.
We walked down to the beach and along to Tholos itself (left at the bottom of the road from the hotel). There were a few bars, a couple of supermarkets selling cigs, alcohol, souvenirs etc. A couple of rental places for Cars and mopeds, quads and motorcycles are there too. The quadbikes seem to be in abundance on the Rhodesian roads.
I would highly recommend a day trip to Rhodes and the old town - the bus there passed the airport and we were surprised at how many sardines you can get in a bus lol.
If I were to travel to the same island twice then I would likely stay here again.
The only minor fault I could possibly mention is that the grandchildren of the owners were playing in the pool and splashing guests in the face and not moving from the steps for guests to exit the pool. A group of us guests spoke about this but after reading reviews we thought it maybe unwise to rock the boat after reading the reviews on here.
