Having arrived after a late night/early morning flight it was lovely to be met and swiftly checked into the hotel room. We were taken by a very curtious porter to our room which entailed using 4 lifts and a flight of stairs. Our room had a lovely view of the bay as do most of the rooms as far as I can tell. The room was air conditioned and kept lovely and clean by the very attentive staff.
The staff in the dining room work really hard to take your order for the main meal, however the other courses are self service and on a Sunday night it is a self service buffet. Gentlemen must be aware of the dress code (long trousers) or else a quiet word in the ear is delivered!
There are 2 pools, the lower one which was closer to our room is smaller but tends to be quieter and was free of children when we stayed there but this may be because the childrens pool is on the higher level with the larger pool.
The hotel offered half board but it is possible to swop the evening meal for a voucher upto the value of 12 euro per person in the party. This needs to be booked before 12 noon on the day you wish to use it and can be used to purchase lunch in the al la carte restuarant but doesnt include any drinks. Drinks not included in the voucher price and any food purchased over the 12 euro per person is added to your room account. However this does give the option to go into Lindos for an evening meal and get some variety.
My only compliant about the experience would be the main courses, we found them to lack variety ie 2 choices and a vegetarian choice. On 2 occasions we found the main meals to be over cooked and tough. Other than this we would not have any compliants regarding the food.
Taxis into Lindos cost 8 euros in and 6 euros back. The hotel will order the outward trip for you from reception and the taxi arrives within 5 minutes. To get the return taxi just call at the taxi rank. We also used the bus to get into Rhodes town. This took just over 1hour and cost 5 euros per person each way.
If you wish to go to the Acropolis in Lindos its worth getting up early to beat the coach tours and get in. Its well worth the effort and at that time of the morning the heat isnt too stiffling.
Overall I would highly recommend this hotel.
