Really pleased with our stay in this hotel. Paid about £450 each for a week at end of Sept/start of Oct, including flights from the UK and all inclusive basis and it was well worth the money. Continent 3 star definitely, don't expect more, and I wouldn't stay longer than a week, but it is good for the price.
Rooms are ok, the decor looks dated, but seems strangley new-ish. We paid for a full sea view in the main building and I get the impression these rooms are the nicest so it was worth the money and the view from the balcony was gorgeous. We got changed in a courtesy room in the side-sea-view-part of the main building and it was a lot worse - mostly bad lighting but wouldn't have liked staying there at all. Think it had a dated kitchenette which is a bit grotty in a bedroom and it was something I was keen to avoid when we booked.
It was great to have the choice of two pools and the beach so close. Loungers were free of charge and always easy to find a free one; however the ones in the better spots for all day sunbathing did go early.
Food was great for the price. Always lukewarm and nothing fancy and can get repetitive but as long as you are realistic about that it was pretty good and better than expected. Loads of choice at lunch - beach bar bbq was nice but a lot of bone-y/dfatty meats. Chinese bar was great, loads of fresh nicely cooked vegetables and great for a change. Regular buffet had a fair bit of choice and the pizza bar bit was great - loads of choice. Buffet meals at night were as expected save for a restaurant staff member serving a different meat every night, carved in front of you. Good quality meat, very lean and tasty and variety every night. Otherwise the buffet wouldn't have been great on its own.
Drinks were good, yes they serve them in plastic half pint glasses, but they have no problem giving you 4 drinks every time you go to the bar. Local beer is nice. The wine less so - never cold enough. The cocktails are nice for a change but very sweet.
Entertainment was ok, took place in the nightclub as it was getting chilly outside and hence it was incredibly difficult to get a seat unless you were very early. Disco in the nightclub after till 2am every night - cheesy but fun. Think the all inclusive drinks stopped at 12am, but you can always get a couple in before then.
We travelled with Thomas Cook and never saw our rep the whole time - no welcome meeting invite, didn't turn at alloted time etc which was a downside.
It is really easy to go into Rhodes town - bus just outside hotel. Lovely town, very modern, great shops and restaurants, lovely harbour. Watch out for friendly timeshare sellers with their scratchcards unless you want to waste up to a day of your holiday.
Faliraki wasn't worth a trip in at off-season time, it was a bit of a ghost town, no craic, no people, a lot of places shut at night.
