“LOVELY HOTEL AND LOVELY FAMILY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

We slept here just for 1 night, arriving late at night ( about 11 p.m. ), but all the staff was very nice, friendly and helpful.

Pool and pool area really great ( sorry we didn't use it because we left for an early morning flight ), and we had dinner at their "taverna" with pool/garden view, : good and cheap fresh food, with "Mythos"beers.

The room was very big and clean and we will surely be back.

I really suggest it, also for just one night if you need a stop over, beacuse it's very close to the airport as well ( don't worry about the noise, because the place is very peaceful and relaxing )

We returned recently from a 2-week stay at Sunlight Studios, where we had a great family holiday. Our first impressions were that the rooms were large (we stayed in the first floor apartments), as we were 2 in a 3-person room, however some other guests showed us their ground floor rooms, and they were really, really small. If you have the choice, definitely choose upstairs! The rooms are cleaned and the sheets/towels changed regularly and the cleaner was very pleasant. Our main issues with the rooms were that there were no shutters on the windows so the rooms weren't very cool unless you hired the air-con (6 euros per day!). Also, our fridge seal had broken so the food we bought wasn't particularly cool and we were often met with an unpleasant pool of water on the floor when we arrived back. Furthermore, our shower head was broken and had a habit of flooding the bathroom! Be warned that for a self catering the room isn't well equipped for cooking your own meals with the absolute minimum provided. The view isn't overly fab, what with the power station nearby and the aeroplanes rumble past every 15 minutes or so, but you get used to that. The swimming pool is great, clean and there are adequate sun loungers for everyone. The bar is well stocked and the restaurant menu is good and decent prices, Irene is a great cook. What the rooms may lack, the friendliness of George, Kostas, Irene and Louka make up for it tenfold. They really do everything to help out and are ready for a chat with you at any time. The evening entertainment is also a laugh and varied, we had 'Greek Night', Bingo, Quiz Night, Karaoke and Barbecue night and is a great way to meet the other guests. The beach is in the near vicinity (10 minutes away). It's not a great beach but it's fine for swimming and there's also a windsurfing club and bar there. 2 supermarkets within 5 minutes' walk as well as a great pastry shop and a lovely restaurant up in Tholos. Overall we had a great time, and although we won't rush back there, the place and the island have given us some fond memories.

Room Tip: Choose upstairs rooms if you get the chance!!!!!

Just returned from an amazing week at Sunlight Studios and I can't say enough about how lovely, friendly and helpful Kostos, Irene & family are. They can't do enough for you and truly made you feel incredibly welcome. As a young couple (26 & 29) my partner and I had such fun and especially enjoyed the Greek night which involved lots of beautiful home-cooked food and plenty of dancing!!

Accommodation was clean & tidy with provisions for self catering. The pool was a good size and depth-plenty of room and no fight for sunbeds!!

Overall we both had a relaxing, fun filled week away with a catalogue of fond memories & will be visiting again next year.

What more can you say that everyone else is saying just so nice . we will be going back next year .the rooms are so cleaned every three days with clean towels and pool is cleaned every morning . the food is good value for money ,beer is cheap and cold. Geek nights are the best ,but bingo and fancy dress night were brilliant too . the locals make you feel like part of their family from people running the place and their friend's who use the pool and the bar .thanks for a lovely holiday .

I have just returned from a holiday in Tholos with my two children. Although we were not staying at the Sunlight Studios ( we were staying at a large hotel nearby ), fortunately we came across this wonderful oasis by chance. We loved it so much we returned several times during our stay. The family running the Sunlight were very friendly and made me and my children feel extremely welcome. The atmosphere was so relaxing and everyone staying at the studios spoke very highly of the family and recommended staying there. We went along to the barbecue on Greek night which was excellent, lots of fun and delicious food. I look forward to returning to Sunlight Studios in the future but would definitely stay in the accommodation next time. Thankyou to all the family for helping to make our holiday memorable.

We are returning customers to the Sunlight and are always amazed by the truly friendly family welcome that awaits us.We consider kostas Irene and the boys part of our extended family, they make anyones holiday so relaxed and friendly. We have returned so many times,not because of Tholos as a resort, but for the accommodation and people at the Sunlight. We always have a car for our whole stay,and literally use the accommodation as a base as we travel every day, we arent pool people, but the pool area at the sunlight are beautiful for anyone who does.Tholos is so quiet,and many things have closed down over the years,all down to the dreaded all inclusive brigade which is a crying shame, as the quaint greece of old will soon be lost completely to this colourd bracelet army, thank goodness for families like Kostas and family that allow us to still see Rhodes in the best of lights.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a larger room if they are available and you like extra space, but they are upstair...
