We would definitely recommend the Olive Garden Hotel for anyone visiting Rhodes.
We recently returned from a 2 week stay there. The hotel was clean, the food was good and the all staff were friendly and helpful. Just one very minor point was the entertainment which I know the hotel management are trying to sort out. The hotel is a taxi ride away (average £10 - £15 each way) from the nearest evening entertainment and bars and there was no organised day-time activities for children or adults which you would normally expect in an 'all-inclusive' hotel. Had we not been in a group who 'entertained ourselves' I think this could have been more of a problem. Having said that, everything we asked for of the staff was met with enthusiasm and cheerfulness which went a long way to making our holiday a special one.
The hotel is within a 10 minute walk of the slightly pebbly beach at Lardos Bay but has a bus stop right outside and from there you can travel to the local resorts of Pefkos and Lindos and if you don't mind a 2 hour bus ride! you can travel to Rhodes Town from outside the hotel. We however chose to do a trip to Rhodes Town through Impress Travel who are based in Pefkos and they were very helpful and reasonably priced on all their excursions, well worth a visit.
