My partner and I stayed on the 22nd August 2013 for 1 week.
On arrival check in was prompt.
The room we were allocated was adequate and was spotlessly clean with the cleaners, cleaning, each day and changing the towels and linen three times a week. While we were here I needed a hair drier and iron recepton supplied these for the whole week with no extra charge.
We found the food to be excellent! Everyday was a different choice and we never had a problem and everyday we had a wonderful meal.
Different choice of breads, lots of different cereals, different sponge cakes, feta cheese and cheese and ham selection. Lots of different jams and honey. Fresh fruit with greek yoghurt. Hot selection was boiled eggs, fried or scrambled eggs, chips or potato choice, bacon, 2 different types of sausages, tomatoes. Most days there was croissants but one day they had eggy bread which was lovely.
Choice of coffee, tea, fruit juice, water and fizzy drinks.
Only down side to breakfast was that the toaster was very slow and only worked one side. Investing in a new toaster would be beneficial although there is lots of choices of bread so its not the end of the world.
We were always out for lunch but it is similar to the evening meal.
Choice of different soup everyday, Fresh bread, Salad bar with our favourite taziki with as much feta and edam cheese you can eat! Choice of at least 3 meat dishes and 1 fish dish. There was always a pasta choice with a different sauce each day. Potato choice and fresh vegetables. In addition to this 3 sweet dishes and 3 varieties of ice cream was always on offer. You would have to be a really fussy eater not to enjoy the food. I would also like to add that the food was beautifully seasoned and never bland. The staff were excellent and the tables were cleared promptly and always cleaned.
The wine and the beer in the restaurant is lovely (beer strong) and is on tap and you help yourself.
Soft drinks are the cheaper version but you get what you pay for as with anything.
There is a choice of 5 cocktails and found the tequila sunrise and green valley to be the best.
The reception staff are extremely helpful and offer advice on places to go. They are always happy to help with anything you need.
Things to do.
Main road is main bus route to Rhodes old town and falaraki. Lots of nice beaches kalthea beach is lovely and is 1.60 euro on the bus. Its 2.20 euro to get to Rhodes.
Rhodes old town what can I say it is magical you can feel the history! Lots of shops and markets, beautiful harour. The acropolis is worth a visit but its 5 euro on the bus we walked it instead and only took 20-30 minutes. There is a touist infomation shop in Rhodes that will give you free maps and advice on what to do.
Water park - Excellent can spend the full day there, lockers are 6 euro but you get 5 back when you return the key, bus there 1.60 euros with a free bus back, check times on the wall before you go in. There is a steep hill to climb ;-/. You dont need to take a packed lunch as the food in the park is reasonably priced, Debs top tip, Nachos were stunning, also the shop were you get the locker keys sells sandwiches which are extemely cheap
Motorbike Hire - Recommend you do this at least one of the days its £25 euros the roads are easy to ride and you can visit many places. Equally car hire if there are more of you.
Kalithea Springs - Costs 3 euro but if you get there early you can get really comfortable sunbeds with cushions. The beach and surrounding area is stunning with natural waterfalls. The toilets are excellent and there is a beautiful buildings and gardens to look around and plenty of shaded places to get out of the sun. If you dont get there early it is still worth the visit as there are other sunbeds all around the site. Food is expensive but if you pop out there is a van that sells beautiful sandwiches and hotdogs and the man is lovely.
Lindos is also beautiful its 50 mins away by car. Bus goes from Rhodes for 5 euro each way.
Lindos is very hot though so be prepared there are also a lot of hills to climb but the views are stunning.
This hotel is in an excellent location with local bars if you fancy a change. Maddussa bar had excellent cocktails.
Overall we had an excellent holiday we would reccommend this hotel and would definately return.
