Just got back from a week at Bel Mare. We booked it last minute to save money, and was all abit rushed. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.
The hotel is in a very quiet area, with a couple of restaurants and shops nearby. If you want something abit busier, then you have Lardos village which is about 20mins walk to the left, or the much livelier Pefkos which is a 30min walk to the right/short bus ride for €1.60
The rooms are basic, but what do you really need other than a bed and bathroom on an island like Rhodes?
In previous reviews, it seems that this was a family run hotel, but since it has been taken over, everyone who works there is from an agency. This is no bad thing. Other reviews state that you have to pay for aircon but this is no longer the case since it's been taken over.
We went bed and breakfast, but for 10euros, you can upgrade to all inclusive for the day. This gets you lunch, dinner and drinks so it's fantastic value.
All meals are a help-yourself buffet type of thing, but the quality of the food is again, surprisingly good for the money you pay. Their Greek salad and tzatziki, which are served every meal time and are particularly good - my girlfriend says it's the best she's tasted!
I would just like to finish by saying, that the staff are all very friendly and welcoming. In particular, Christos, the receptionist, and Romeo the evening barman, are brilliant!
All in all, very happy with our stay!
