We stayed in one of the bungalows - fine and clean but very basic, especially considering this was supposed to be a superior room. Had to pay 15euros to use the safety deposit box in the room, and it wasn't even one that you could key a PIN code into, which meant you had to carry the safe key on you at all times.
Food was fine - breakfast got a bit repetitive - no yoghurts and the only fresh fruit was some sorry looking oranges. Lunch and dinner were both lovely and there was plenty of choice, though I would like to have seen some lettuce at the salad bar - it only made an appearance once!
All inclusive were the basics - beer, wine and soft drinks and it got a bit samey. There's a bar in the hotel that's not included in the all inc. package which seems odd. Also had to pay £3 euros each day for a sunbed which is a joke for an all inclusive rate.
Staff were all lovely and were hard working - they seemed to all work 24/7 every day!
One thing to point out - the hotel is located approx. 3 miles from the aiport and is right under the flight path! You soon learn to sleep through the night time flights though!
Buses in to Rhodes were every 15 mins and only 2euros 10 each way.
We ate at the Pegasus restaurant up the road a couple of times - excellent Greek food and service.
All in all, we enjoyed it but it wasn't a 4 star property, and the all inclusive rate is a bit of a rip off when it doesn't include sunbeds, cocktails, etc.
