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.
