We went to the Solemar for 2 weeks for our honeymoon and I really can't complain. The room was spacious and comfy with brilliant maid service! We had a sea view which was beautiful and even though it was on a main road it wasn't very loud at night and there wasnt much noise from the bar below.
The pool is brilliant, its the first time i've ever seen a pool with enough beds for everyone and for them to have cushions on (a really nice touch i thought). The cats are not a problem they are easily avoided and very friendly. The pool bar is set back from the pool, but not a problem as it provided every drink you could ask for with friendly service. The pool side food isn't bad serving pizza and chips with a bit of salad too.
The food as many people say was basic and repetitive but we never went hungry and the deserts were gorgeous all home made and spoilt for choice. If you didn't fancy the food there are lots of different bars to choose from literally a stones throw from the hotel with good, cheap food and drinks.
The location of the hotel is amazing as its over the road from the beach near lots of shops and bars and only a short bus trip to Rhodes Town which is beautiful and the Old Town is even nicer.
We didn't go on any excursions as they were very expensive from the rep but the hotel did them cheaper and if you confident then you can make your own adventures, we did and had a great time.
Finally the staff are worth their weight in gold! They work so hard and they never grumble but provide such friendly service with a smile. The reception staff are happy to help with any questions you have and the bar staff Gabrielle and Manos are priceless their super serivce and friendly attitude are the reason we stayed up far too late some nights :p
I would say judge the hotel for yourself but personally I would go back in a flash. Lovely holiday with nice hotel and super people.
