I travelled with wife and 2 children aged 11 & 8 on all inclusive. I will try to break the review down as best as possible:
Rooms- we stayed in the main building and the room was very clean and tidy. Lovely views of the mountains. The only issue with staying here was the "noise". Other residents did not seem to give a damn about others and with kids, they needed the odd early night. The noise went on until around midnight then started again about 0700. Basically it was doors slamming and people shouting.Overall rating for the room was about 3*.
Food - the food was not good. Very little choice in the main restaurant and it was mainly cold. We did not go hungary but the kids lived on either cold pasta or chicken nuggets and chips for the 2 weeks. Overall rating for the food was 2*.
Alcohol - beer was fine but not much selection on spirits. The "rum" run out for 3 days whilst they awaited delivery and the others were locally produced dross.
Drinks - kids drinks were awful, machine often not working and they were flat and watered down. We bought our own bottle of coke/sprite from the shop to mix our spirits with. Overall rating for drinks 2-3*.
Staff - basically, very miserable and always shouting at each other. Staff rating about 2*.
Animation team - very, very basic. They only have about 4 staff and the shows in the evening were the worst I have experienced. They used the audience most nights to make up the numbers and on one particular night, they were so bad people walked away. Rating 1*.
Overall - the hotel is clean and tidy with a choice of 3 pools. The waterfpark is clean and the drinks are included in the price. The staff at the waterpark are worse than miserable. The hotel is right on the beachfront which makes it a great location for a beach holiday. Rhodes town is a 25 minute bus ride away. If it was not for the sunshine then this would have been an awful holiday. Shop around and go for a 4-5* hotel as this is not a 3*, it is more like a 2*+.
