The hotel is situated a bit from the main road next to the beach, there are only a few hotels that have the luxury of having a beach area connecting to the garden of the Hotel, other hotels in the area you have to cross the main road to get to the sea. It’s not a sandy beach but Stone pebbles.
The area is quite even if you stay on the street site of the hotel, cause there’s not to much traffic passing this way.
First glance is this is Grand, and It is, nice reception, nice garden, clean pool and helpful people.
But getting to my room in the garden suites I had to drag my bags up the stairs, nobody to help, I got help in 3 stars hotels with my bags, but ok were young and it saves a tip. but I would have expected this from this kind of hotel. The room was larger than the average hotel rooms I’ve come across, and that was a plezand surprise. The Furniture Looked new “ used” . Everything was there, including a safe and mini bar, good sized LCD TV ( that I never put on when I’m on holiday ) .
The room was cleaned daily and so was the bathroom. Bed sheets were changed 2 times the week we were there.
Arco did the job, wasn’t noisy and bed was good enough to get a good night sleep.
The restaurant, well, your guided every night to your place by the manager of the restaurant and after staring at a wall for 2 dinners I wanted to get another place, that Proved to be difficult although there was plenty of space else were, But after asking firmly but polite it was no problem.
The food was good, not excellent, but Good . there was a variation of food to choose from daily and the breakfast gave you a good choice to start the day, ranging from the English to the Continental Breakfast.
There was a poolside restaurant that was only open during the day and I can certainly recommend to eat something here, it’s a la carte, plenty of choice, good, quick Service and Best food I Ate during the stay at the Hotel, but the taste of food is personal and not everybody has the same taste.
You also have the choice of eating in the Black and white restaurant were you have a choice a la carte . I was a little disappointed here, the food was good but medium warm and was served much to fast , one thing came after another without any pause, a little strange but maybe they wanted to close early .
The Service at the Bar is correct, polite and fast. Try one of their cocktails, We liked them…
The pool is not too big and there is no separate kids basin. Some of the garden chairs are worn and need to be replaced as are the cushions, there were a lot of them with filthy stains, or smelled like cat … . the cushions are clamped between the Chairs at night so Rain and shine, cats and dog’s can just do their thing, they should take them inside.
There is plenty of pool, garden and Beach space, but Too little chairs and We were their in the low Season.. there was no animation, music or anything else around the pool side, just the way we like it.
You do get a beach towel card, don’t lose it or you’ll pay for it.
the pool Bar is run by Two lovely Romainian girls that have time for a chat when it's not to busy,
Outside the hotel there isn’t much happening but on the main road, a small stroll from the hotel there are restaurants and Bazar’s, were you can buy food or drinks at a cheaper prize than the hotel.
Getting around On Rhodos is Easy, there are busses going all over the island, but the best way is to get your own car .
there's a Car Retal service at the hotel available, that was constantly manned from early in the morning till late a night. Didn’t rent a from them but the prices were cheaper than the Avis Rental that comes along upon your request.
Renting with Avis you’re sure that your insured and the price is all inclusive. Someone scratch the car over the hole length while we were in Rhodes City, but When retuning the car they didn’t charge us extra.
All in All we had e very good Time at this place, Quite, nice people, Would come back again.
