“Clean and well presented but limited”
Reviewed 20 June 2012

My daughter and I stayed here for a week recently. we were not phased by being virtually the only Brits. This isnt really an issue, it just detracts sometimes from familiar ambience. The hotel presented quite nicely. Large reception area with comfortable seats. We were presented with the option of having a sea view room which we needed to pay 7 euros per night extra for. Disappointing - but with standing water close by, we thought it best - and previous reviews had indicated some of the rooms were less than salubrious.

We had a nice airy room with balcony above the reception area. The furnishings are very dated, television a useless specimen (not that you go away on hols to watch TV!) but the most irritating thing was the door to the bathroom, made a horrendous noise on being used - warped after years of use and wetting in the bathroom.

Airconditioning, we were told was a further 7.5 euros because it wasnt july! This did not impress us and the cost particularly high we thought. however, the temperature down that side of the island is particularly hot - some 4 degrees hotter than Ixia or Rhodes town where the sea breeze is a welcome cool. Still we had to have it, having been eaten alive by mozzies on one night - apologies to the neighbours but we had to bash them all night. A lesson to be remembered when one tries to use the mozzie guard with the sliding doors open - DONT! it doesnt work.

Still, being positive, the rooms are cleaned each day. There are clean towels and a wipe down of floors. I have no complaints at all with the cleanliness and how hard the housekeeping staff worked. They were friendly too.

Food - initially there were only about a hundred in the hotel, or thereabouts and so the choice was okay for people who like food, but if you are a picky eater, not so good. Contental breakfasts with some scrambled egg seemed to be the fare in the morning. Lunches were often with pasta or rice and a potato dish, some random veg - twice brussels sprouts, sometimes carrots and sometimes broccoli. But there was always a fish and at least one meat choice and plenty of greek salad items, tzaziki etc. So I have no complaints about the food. Dinner was similar. Sweets/desserts were more limited than expected but I prefer savoury so that didnt bother me. wine and beer from a dispenser which was palatable.

The other irritating thing about the hotel was their insistence on using the cheapest plastic cups that money can buy for drinks at the bar. Irrespective of whether or not you were drinking inside or outside. Whilst I understand there will always be idiots who get drunk and fall about the place and there is a need for plastic cups, especially poolside, I objected to this whilst wishing to drink indoors.

The pool is well kept and the poolside area clean and well presented. A good view to the sea which is accessed across the parking area - the beach is pebble so flip flops are definitely needed. There are lounges and tables at 4 Euros per day on offer there.

If you use a satnav to get there, it will take you to the Lindos Princess.... dont look in there, it will make you wish you had booked there - but its far more expensive.

There is no entertainment and the clientele - tended towards middle aged bavarians, eastern europeans and quite old people. Pefkos is better if you want a bit of brit night life and it isnt really walking distance in the heat.

take a wander to lardos, nice little village with someting on Friday nights. good prices to try eating out. Pefkos for louder brasher scenery and hire a car to get out and about. We managed it and it was well worth it.

All in all a medium priced holiday that was a nice break. I wouldnt rush to go back there, not because it was awful, it wasnt, its just that I have experienced nicer places and better scenery. Perhaps Rhodes is a little tired overall now.

Room Tip: They will offer you a sea view for additional cost. Find out which room you are in first. we may h...

We stayed here for one night during a tour of Rhodes. It was much better than the average small hotels we visited and ideal for a one or two night stay. There was an excellent swimming pool and we had a sea view room on the top floor of a two storey bungalow. We were offered the 'all inclusive' option for 25 euros each, but this was not good value as we had already paid for breakfast. Much better to cycle into nearby Lardos and eat in one of the many excellent restaurants there. The room was comfortable and clean and we had a balcony. Breakfast was a bit underwhelming. So whilst not quite up to modern resort hotel standards, it is fine for a short break.

Room Tip: Good sea views from the first floor rooms on the top of some of the bungalows.

We were "upgraded" to this hotel as our original one was overbooked. Do not be fooled this is an awful hotel. Our room was in an underground tunnel rooms 139 -143 beware!!! The manager actually told us our rooms "were OK But only for sleep" The room overlooked a carpark and gas tank.
The food is unbelievably dreadful squid and sprouts one evening!!!!
Cleanliness in the room is reasonable but the dining room is filthy. Hotel does not cater for British people and at one stage there were only 2 other Brits in the hotel with the other guests making us feel very vunerable indeed I was jostled at the bar on more than one occasion. Avoid at all costs

the hotel is very clean throughout. our room was in the main hotel although most rooms are in the bungalows and we didn't see inside these. our bedlinen and towels were changed very frequently, at least every other day, sometimes every day .the staff without exception were very friendly and helpful, their English is good. the hotel clientèle was multi national and we brits were definitely in a minority .the dining room is very large, in 2 sections. the cuisine is Greek without exception and we enjoyed the food .the beach restaurant was closed for the whole 2 weeks we were there .
the beach is just across the hotel car park so within easy reach of the pool bar for drinks during the day .however the sunbeds on the beach cost 4 euro s p.p.p.day .a reduction of 50 cents per day if you pay for a week in advance .sunbeds are available round the pool but with Germans and Russians in the hotel you'd have to be up very early to get one .the beach is lovely but coarse sand and pebbles in the sea.
the local bus stops on the main road which is less than 5 mins walk from the hotel. the drivers all speak good English so it is easy to use the local buses to see the island.they are all air conditioned.
Lardos village does not have a lot to offer other than a couple of nice bars and 2 supermarkets. 30 mins walk from the hotel, 5 mins on the bus or 5 euro's in a taxi.
there is no entertainment in the hotel so it would not be suitable for night life lovers. ideal for couples wanting a quiet holiday and for families.

We stayed at Kamari Beach in May 2011 for 7 nights.
We arrived at 2.15pm and lunch had finished at 2, we told the receptionist that we hadnt eaten since 5am, so fantastically, she spoke to the restaurant and they had lunch plated up for us, this was just one example of the superb service in the hotel during our stay.
We were all inclusive with the food varied, and prepared to a high standard, no two days were the same, and theres something for everyone.
The pool had plenty of space to sunbathe, however we used the beach most days as it is literally on your doorstep.
There is absolutely nothing nearby apart from a shop, so if you want a hotel in the middle of nowhere, then this is perfect!
Would definitely visit again, the best value for money we have spent on a holiday!

This hotel was a last minute honeymoon booking for us. We were pleasantly suprised that is was sooo nice - being one of the only places left to book last minute. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was very clean and beautifully kept. The rooms were good, varied channels on the telvision, some english ones to !!!! Air condition unit worked perfectly. Food was varied and well cooked. Prices were average for the Euro. It is far away from alot of the local view spots and airport so take lots of spending cash for buses and coaches, but overall it was a very peaceful hotel for a couple on their honeymoon. Recommended !!!!
