I have been coming back to this holiday almost annualy for the last 12 years because I have found my perfect holiday, which gives me all I need to relax and regenerate to face the following 12 months of pressured and full on work back in the UK.
I have found the family who run the hotel, and the staff to be a joy and a delight. There again, I find that the people of Rhodes in general are really warm, friendly and welcoming. The weather is always pretty perfect for me - mostly clear blue skies and lovely and warm, if not hot, as is the location of the hotel. Close enough to Pefkos to shop and enjoy the local tavernas, but also not in the main thrust to be too noisy and hectic. The facilities are good: right on the sea front and within only 5 minutes walk to a beach, and three pools. The little salt water pool can end up mirroring the sea by September (coming to the end of the season) but is cleared out and refreshed each year, so if you're coming at the end of the summer it won't be sparking as it does at the beginning - such is the nature of the sea which is pumped in to it.
The room is all that I need, and would expect for 3 stars, including a terrace etc.and serviced/cleaned very regularly.
The hotel serve greek food which I enjoyed when eating there. Although I book half board, as the travel company don't offer a bed and breakfast option, I always budget to eat out for some of the time as I enjoy eating outside in the local tavernas with the advantage of choosing just what I fancy that evening from the menu. Taking that into account I still think it's value for money. I pretty much always eat greek food, as I think it's delicious and part of my greek experience. I happen to know that the hotel use their own organic fruit and vedgetables which are grown on site, and I believe the flavours are a testament to that.
As long as I can save enough to return I will do. Great people, place, weather, food, and fun round the bar in the evening. Couldn't ask for more
