“could be very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

stayed here early oct, on arrival we were shown to our room, even had one of our suitcases carried to the room for us, My first impressions were that the room was basic but would be ok, plenty of storage. I then entered the very small bathroom, on further examination it was clear this had not been cleaned very well over a long period of time. There was black mould all along the shower doors and down the tiles in the corner, using toilet paper i did manage to make it look better before my wife seen it.spoke to other guests some of their rooms were the same, others said theirs were fine. Onto the pool we never once seen the pool cleaned whilst we were there, there was eveb a build up of sand in the bottom, showing it had never been cleaned for some time, Drinks were ok, as others have said, served in plastic cups, you have to take a empty one back before you can have another one. AI finshed dead on 11 and from then on you had to pay. Food was ok, breakfast being the best,at each meal there was plenty of choice and all served hot. Staff very good and always had a chat with people, even towards the end of a long season they looked after you. Like my heading says could be very good, just clean the rooms better and the pool, and this could be a very nice place, one last thing the hill, you get used to it, would i return, yes at the right price, Big hello, to Ste, Chris, Dennis and Barbara, made our holiday Thank you

Room Tip: believe rooms 301 and 305 were clean

Went to Rodos Star on the 5th September for 2 weeks. We had a great 2 weeks. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were basic but you always had fresh towels ahd sheets every day. We were in room 314 and we had some views of the sea. We hired a car from the hotel which was a lot cheaper than the Olympic rep! It did break down but they put a new battery in it and we were good to go the next morning. The hill wasn't to bad I'm overweight and if I can do it everybody can!
The drinks are a little watered down, but I can see why as some Brits do go overboard when it is all inclusive. That's not the hotel's fault! They could make more of the pool area bar at night, as this was only used twice a week when there was a theme night. The outside area on the other nights was to small and people (especially us Brits) like to sit outside as we can very rarely do it at home. They need to make that bigger so more people can enjoy the warm air.
Cannot complain about the food as it was excellent, for how much you pay I'm amazed at the choice. All I can say is a big thank you to Tassos, Mouska and all the staff for a fantastic stay.

Went to Rodos star on the 29th of August for my 50th birthday with my husband.We had a wonderful 2 weeks there. Really not got any complaints...not even the hill, we done it everyday. Excellent value for money. The food was amazing, there were a few people complaining but I really dont know why. There was an excellent variety & I think we tried everything on offer. To my husbands delight he managed a 3 course breakfast, lunch & dinner practically everyday. I honestly dont know where he put it but he was on his glory. The heat was amazing & the breeze was very welcoming. We met a lot of lovely people too.
It is a family run hotel & everyone was very helpful, Enjoyed the greek night. An extra special thank you to Joanna, mimi & adi who were all lovely & very hard working. Even the kitchen staff were nice. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor above the bar & had an excellent view.

I just spent a week with my boyfriend at the Rodos Star hotel at the end of September, and it couldn't have been a better time. The staff are all friendly and welcoming, and the room, while basic, was comfortable and clean with fresh towels and sheets every day. We were on the third floor, with great views from the balcony under an amazing blue sky. Yes you have to walk up a hill to get there, but this just contributed to the views, and though steep, as long as you are forewarned and prepared it isn't hard. Take it slow and don't try it in the midday heat.

The food was wonderful, with a good selection at all three meals where you could eat as much as you want, and drinks available almost all day from one of the bars (thanks Ady and Nikos!) The beautiful pool area is perfect for enjoying the sun all day, with plenty of sun loungers for everyone

I highly recommend this hotel, I ignored a few bad reviews on here before going, choosing to trust the numerous good ones and am extremely glad that I did. Such good value for money and absolutely zero stress. For an amazing holiday please do try Rodos Star.

We stayed at the Rodos Star from 22nd August for 2 weeks. Well what can I say.......please do not read the bad reviews about this place. It is a small family run hotel and Tassos, Mouska & all the staff couldn't have made us feel more welcome. The rooms are basic, but adequate for what you need, fresh clean towels every day. The food was very good, lots of choice and always plenty of it. The drinks....especially the cocktails were great! Thanks Addy. The pool and pool area were very clean & always plenty of loungers. Yes there is the hill! but it isn't that bad especially once you get to the top!! Would definitely recommend this hotel for a peaceful, relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor. Room 308. Very quiet and lovely views over the village of Afandou.

Me and my boyfriend recently came back from this hotel and i have to say i had a wicked time, The hotel itself was very nice and although its at the top of a steep hill its worth it when you get to the top. the rooms are cleaned everyday with fresh towels in the morning, the food was good with variety and fresh. The Greek night was really good and everyone got involved and was up dancing and singing including the owner.

For me the most important thing was that the customer service was EXCELLENT. all the staff were frendly and helpful, nothing was to much for them they really were brilliant. i would like to say a massive thankyou to them all, giving a special thankyou to Nikos & Addy the barmen and Tasos the owner for a wicked holiday. would definatly recommend the Hotel for a relaxing stay.

Holly & Paul.

We stayed at the hotel during Sept 10th to the 21st 2012 my husband and i had wonderful time the people are so friendly, the rooms are clean and the food as much as you can eat. They are only to pleased to help if there is anything wrong and wll soon put it right.
The owner Tasos Spanos he is wonderful only to plesed to help in any way, Mouska is so nice and welcoming. The Greek night we eally enjoyed, the trips we booked at the hotel were fantastic. It is a quiet holiday but you meet lots of wonderful people. In the town of Afandou you must visit the cafe called Bon Viveur they sell the most fantastic fresh orange juice and the very well english spoken gentleman also very welcoming and only to pleased to point out certain places, and where to catch the bus and what times to diferent towns. we will see you all again.
Addy and Nicos were just great
Thank you so much for making our holiday rememberable
We would recommend this hotel to anyone

Room Tip: All the roomsare basic but if you get the ground floor where we where, round the corner from te pool...
