Me my mum and sister stayed at the ocean blue for 1 week from 9-16th October, and after reading all the reviews was very apprehensive about staying here. When we arrived we were 'greeted' by the receptionist who yes is not the most helpful but gave us our key and took our passports and told the lift was round the... More

We stayed here for one week between 2nd-9th October, not by choice we might add but thanks to our ever efficient travel agent 'On The Beach' (never to be used again) who surprised us when we arrived at the hotel we had booked and we were swiftly ordered a taxi to transfer us to the Ocean Blue instead as apparently...

not at all wat we expected. all inclusive was a bonus as nothing around the hotel unless you had a car....only about 3 eating places & none of them looked very good. food at resort was horrible & drinks even worse - watered down & coffee/tea was always out of order. rooms nice, but bath leaks like a sieve everytime...

I first went to the Ocean Blue 5 yearsago and was so pleased with my Holiday. When friends told us they wanted to go to to Rhodes we thought we new just the place to stay. HOW WRONG WE WERE. Since we last stayed here the hotel has changed drastically. The hotel itself is fine maybe a little work needs... More

Food is horrible, drinks are served in plastic cups day and night, staff are miserable, location is crap. Hotel and food seems to be more suited for Russians as they seem to like it and make up about 95% of the guests.

Be warned!! Please be very careful if you're thinking about booking your holiday here. We (4 adults and 7 children) booked our holiday at The Ocean Blue in October, 2012. We arrived at 11.30 pm on 06/07/13. We had been trying to communicate with them directly by email for 4 months prior to our arrival but were totally unsatisfied with... More

I travelled with my best friend (2 girls, 20yrs ) end of August-beginning of September, and had the best holiday we could have asked for. Before we came we read the reviews which made us a bit worried about going. We got to the hotel and was greeted by reception, we were given possibly the best room facing the main... More

The hotel was pretty good. Even through I read many negative reciews about catering, I haven't found anything weird, innormal. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners were delicious, as well as in all all-inclusive hotels I have visited. It's good when you get a room with "own" pool under terrace because you share it only with few people and it peaceful. There... More
