My husband and I stayed here at the beginning of September 2014 for 10 nights’. It’s a very nice hotel. We had a sea view room on the top floor. Cannot remember the room number but the room was right in the middle of the row of rooms so we had a fantastic sea view. The room itself was a very good size – consisting of a double bed, desk with tv and chair, a fridge, a small table and chair, comfy sofa which looked like it unfolded into an extra bed and of course a table and chairs out on the balcony. Do not be surprised if your double bed is made up of two single beds pushed together this is the norm in Greece! Room was spotless and always cleaned to a high standard. The bathroom was spacious and fulfilled its purpose; there was also enough space to place your toiletries.
During our first night the AC unit had leaked all over the floor outside the bathroom. We reported this to reception in the morning who arranged to have this resolved the same day; which it was.
The only let down with the hotel is that you have to pay to use the safe but I have found this is a common charge in Greece. Also, you have to pay for wifi in your room. Wifi is free in the hotel lobby area so you will always find people sat along the bench there on their mobiles! You can also use the internet on a PC in the lobby at a charge.
The food selection at all meal times was amazing. We were very much surprised at the amount of choice available and were never disappointed. Whilst we are both meat eaters we feel that they had a good selection of vegetarian food also.
Bar staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. We enjoyed sitting on the sofas at the outdoor bar overlooking the beach in the evenings.
We hired a car via a local company who have a desk in the hotel lobby. They were very good and we had no complaints. Would highly recommend hiring a car to travel around Rhodes, it’s not difficult and allows you to see the rest of the island at your own pace.
There is a gentleman on the beach selling lazy cruise excursions with Captain Manolis. We went on the full day cruise and it was a great way to spend our Sunday!
You have to pay a deposit for the use of towels but this is refunded when you hand in your towels at the end of your stay. Towels are collected from and changed at the spa reception.
The hotel had daily spa offers which were good value. We booked an offer for a couples massage. The massage was ok – i’ve had better but the spa therapists were friendly. They have an indoor pool, Jacuzzi tub and a small simple gym but we did not use these as would prefer to be outside by the pool.
There are two pools outside; the main one and a kids pool. The main pool is great. They do an aqua aerobics class twice a week and there are also hotel reps who ask guests to join in with games and yoga classes.
There is a gelataria/ice cream parlour near the pool where you can get some tasty ice creams to cool down in the heat.
The hotel has a convenience store near the reception where you can pick up drinks, snacks and toiletries - reasonably priced.
Location wise, before we travelled we read quite a few reviews unhappy about the location. The hotel, despite its name, is located in Vlycha Bay. Lindos town is about a 5/10minute drive away and it is a simple route to drive youself if you want to visit Lindos and the Acropolis. If you want to get the bus anywhere then, as other reviewers have said, you would need to walk up a hill to the main road - its quite a walk especially in the heat.
We had a great holiday here and would definitely recommend!!
