“Loved our stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

We had a great time staying at Filoxenia for a week. The apartments were basic but had everything you needed and were kept clean on a daily basis. The shower was a bit of a pain as you have to hold the shower head and also water goes everywhere in the bathroom. You have access to a hob, sink, and a sufficiently sized fridge. Air con can be bought as an extra for €5 a day, a definite must. We stayed on the first floor and had a lovely view of the pool and also the sea with Turkey in the background - just beautiful to wake up to. The pool is kept clean and is a lovely temperature. Slight negative about the pool beds; the white ones are incredibly uncomfortable, definitely aim for the blue ones. The food was homemade and the service was great, all of the staff go the extra mile to help you and add a personal touch by the simplest of things like remembering your name. The hotel has mini golf, chess, draughts, ping pong etc for a small fee which was lots of fun.
Tholos itself is a bit too deserted, we struggled for things to do and mainly stayed round the pool or travelled to Rhodes town. Bus tickets can be bought from the hotel, however the bus service itself is hit and miss, we ended up being stranded at the airport one night and had to rely on a taxi. The little greek kitchen is a great local restaurant in Tholos that I highly recommend.
Overall we had a lovely stay at Filoxenia and we look forward to the day we return! Thanks to everyone who made our stay enjoyable.

My husband and I spent a very enjoyable few days with some friends. Studio apartments were very clean and comfortable. The family were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.
The pool and gardens are lovely. My only criticism is that the sun beds are quite uncomfortable.
A great place for a complete chill. Wi Fi connection was very good. Will hope to return to re charge the batteries in the future.

We stayed here for 6 days in a family group. We arrived at the hotel late evening and were warmly greeted and shown to our rooms. The rooms were all spotlessly clean including the bathroom and the grounds of the hotel were beautifully looked after. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant a couple of times. All the food is excellent and home made and great value. The pools are fantastic and there is no problem getting a sun lounger. There is free wifi and the hotel has other things too like crazy golf and pool which are available for a small extra charge. The rooms are exceptionally good value almost too good to be true so don't complain at being asked to pay a bit extra if you want air conditioning or a safe deposit box. There are no TVs but I liked that. There is one in the restaurant area which guests can watch whenever they want. The family are very friendly and engaging. They sell bus tickets behind the bar and are happy to arrange taxis. There is a bus stop right outside which connects wiuth the airport and Rhodes Town. The local beach is ok, nothing amazing but great beaches are only a bus or car journey away. There is a local Kite Surfing School which we would have tried if we had known about it sooner or had more time as it looked amazing fun. There are some nice restaurants in the local village about 10 mins walk away. We would strongly recommend this place for value, cleanliness, quality and the friendliness and commitment of the host family. One of the best places we have ever stayed.

Very relaxing place. Staff can't do enough to help you. Food is good. Small snacks for lunch very good value. Portions are huge for dinner so might be worth sharing if you don't like huge portions. Dead split for children

Room Tip: Ask for what you want, they will give you it

We loved it here. Marvellous setting, made so welcome, excellent food and apartment. The family make you feel so at home. If you want to get away from it all and enjoy Greek hospitality at its best then this is the place to go. 10 minutes in a taxi from the airport.
We are going to book for next year and can't wait to return.

Arrived at 11.30pm after a delayed , cramped Thomas Cook flight.
Received a warm welcome from Nikos & Eva who provided a lovely hot meal & a cool beer . A good start !

Just get a taxi from the airport , around 10 minutes. Should cost 13euro . Just behind the front of the taxi rank there is a board showing all the prices. If he driver says he wants more just tell him to look at the board !
You can get a bus back from outside the hotel for around 2 euro per person but watch out if it's a busy time. We were going into Rhodes on the bus. The 10.30 am flashed its lights and went on by - full. The 11 am didn't turn up.
The 5.30 coming back from Rhodes was rammed . Good job I used to be rugby player & used to scrums.

Spotless room, cleaned every day with clean towels Clean sheets every 2nd day.
Grounds & pool well maintained

Tavernas in Tholos pretty disappointing. Not much choice and not geat food, Fixolenia food is better.
There are 4 big hotels along the main road but they are all inclusive so hardly anybody eats out from them.

The Doreta Beach Hotel has a cash machine otherwise there is one on the main road about 300 metres up the road .

A mixture of Brits, Italians, Russians & Finns when we stayed.
Nikos gets most of his UK bookings from Booking.com , Expedia & Travel Republic but you can also contact him direct. We were there the last 2 weeks in June & he showed me his bookings - almost full . Suggest booking early for 2015
