You should always take the reviews on here with a pinch of salt, a lot of the negative comments we had read on here prior to going we actually never witnessed whilst we was there, so here's our honest review.
We had room 119 on the first floor it overlooked the mountains and had a large balcony the bathroom was modern with a huge shower, king size bed and two wardrobes, big mirror above dresser table and a couple of plug sockets dotted around for multiple uses. Unlike other rooms we didn't need to use a card to enter nor to keep the lights and air con on, we had a key and the air con was remote controlled which meant we could (and did) leave it on all day whilst we was out and even though the maid had been and cleaned our room we always returned with the air con still turned on. We had a little fridge in the room too which could hold two big bottles of water our sun tan lotion and a couple of snack bars like chocolate in there which was just all we needed! Our safe was 20 euros for the week, which we kept same lot in there safe, and very easy to use, reception staff came up and helped us set it up! The maid never failed to supply us with fresh bedding and towels and empty our bins who seemed really nice.
Me and my partner are quiet picky eaters but we always eat and never went hungry,
Breakfast was the full continental, varied cereals, fruit, juices and fresh bread which could be toasted. This was between 07:30 - 09:30
Lunch was 12:30 - 14:30 there was pasta, sauces, pizza, chips, Greek salads, fruit, burgers, pork, quiche, chicken, there was a different selection everyday they did change the dishes to give more option, with only being a small hotel with a small number of guest you can understand there wasn't a MASSIVE selection, think of the waste! It's a 40 room hotel they cater for that, keep that in mind
Ice cream and biscuits 14:30 - 17:30 fresh biscuits homemade and a selection of ice creams, chocolate,vanilla, strawberry and banana.
Dinner 18:30 - 21:00
Consisted of different meats, huge salad selections, cheese, pasta with sauces, pizzas, chips, barbecued chicken etc always with fresh deserts and jelly/ice cream and of course fruit and bread
Was open from 10:00-23-00
The local beer was Vap and it was really nice, soft drinks the typical Pepsi, fanta, lemo etc
Didn't try the wine but others seemed to like it, there was of course other options to purchase non local alcohol, such as bottles of strongbow, corona and kopperberg these were only 2 euro a bottle!!!
The staff are really friendly, from the reception to the bar to the waitress, no bad comments to make always smiling and happy to help. On our last day we were due to be picked up at 1 to leave for the airport and lunch was kindly brought forward to 12 as there was a lot of people leaving and wouldn't of had time to eat without rushing.
KOLIMBIA - outside the hotel
The local town from this hotel is only a 10-15minute walk way left as you walk out the hotel, which is where me and my partner spent the rest of our holiday of a night. We went to the cocktail bar of T&Ps. Highly recommended here as the cocktails, drinks and service is absolutely fantastic, with the two best bands on the island as entertainment providing rock and roll covers to perfection! Sweet child of mine, an absolute classic and played to justice by the amazing Time Machine! The cocktails are very generous and cost 6 euros but other drinks costing much less, I was more than happy to pay as I love my cocktails and 6euros back at home works out about £4.50 and where I'm from...that's non existent! They're at least £6! Using branded alcohol at generous amounts all made a fuss of with sparklers and fresh fruit slices! Couldn't of asked for more! Tolis and Panos are the owners both working hard 7 days a week, and Silvia and Lucy the barmaids along side them to give the tourists a night/holiday to remember, and that we will! Beautiful people! We will never forget! And if anyone does read this and venture into this bar look out for the TP little wooden train on the shelf behind the main bar, a present from us to them :) the local shops and tourist shops are reasonably priced! Bottles of water of 500ml of 30cent and we bought 2 litre bottles for 50cent to keep in our hotel room fridge! Got really good presents for family back at home with no huge expense at all! Couple of euros here and there! Great value.
OLD RHODES TOWN
On one day we got a 3.50 euro bus into Rhodes which was a half an hour journey straight into the heart of it. What a beautiful place!! We adventured the old castle and into the main shopping in the centre with lots of restaurants to tuck into reasonably priced! Gorgeous scenery, sitting outside having a steak burger in the blissful sun! Perfect! So happy we visited! A definite must for a romantic day out! Would definitely visit back. We knew that Lindos was not far from here which could possibly be a second bus ride linking onto there unfortunately we did not go there but was recommended highly by the hotel staff to visit as it was also magnificent.
To sum up our holiday it was really was worth every pound and more! For a quiet relaxing holiday in the sun you will be booking the right hotel!
