“Happy Honeymoon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

We arrived for a week at the end of May and stayed all inclusive. We arrived past midnight and was shown to our room via a cute ride on a golf buggy! We were greeted with sandwiches, snack and a bottle of wine, 10 out of 10 from the start!

Our room was located towards the far end next to the road that led to the beach. We had a partial view of the sea and the road did not disturb us in the slightest, it was very quiet. The room was always clean and tidy and very modern in décor.

We found every member of staff we encounter were friendly and attentive, and any little problems were sorted immediately. The bar staff work incredibly hard, they could do with a couple more staff really. Toni’s Mojito’s were fabulous!! It was also my birthday whilst there and I recieved a surprise birthday cake delivered to our room! We found the food plentiful and always had a good choice. They have free Wi-Fi in the lobby/bar area but if busy you may have trouble connecting.

We found the grounds to be clean and tidy and gardeners always working to keep things neat.

We only went to the beach once and found it adequate, loungers were free and the sea was lovely and clear. If you walk towards your right if looking at the sea you will find a couple of restaurants and a really nice beach bar. We enjoyed a relaxed couple of cocktails there looking over the sea!

We also caught the bus into Lindos, about 40 minutes, and the bus stop is located outside the supermarket opposite the hotel. The area of Kolymbia is quite quiet but we ate out twice and had a few drinks in the T&P Coctail bar listening to the 5 piece band.

We had such an enjoyable, relaxed stay and I would deffinatly recommend this hotel.

Hotel was amazing! Could not fault it. Traveled all-inclusive with my boyfriend and it was well worth it for the amount of cocktail available. Room was nice, resort was clean, food at the buffet was amazing.... but don't book with Thomas Cook. On arrival at rhodes airport the reps tried to make us pay for our own taxi to the resort despite the fact transport was included in our deal. On arrival at the hotel there was no rep to greet us and welcome meeting was not until the afternoon of the following day. Rep was dull and unhelpful. Didn't see her again the whole holiday. No rep came to see us transported back to the airport. Still waiting to get picked up and probably go to miss our flight.... I fo not recommended booking with them

From the moment we arrived in the hotel, we were looked after and all the staff throughout our holiday were very attentive. Tony at the cocktail Bar was excellent and he became a good friend and we looked forward to seeing him work his magic on the cocktails. The food was excellent and we never got tired with what was provided during the 11 nights that we stayed for. It was nice having the choice of the buffet style restaurant or the al a carte restaurant by the pool. The grounds were amazing and the gardeners worked hard during the day and it was a pleasure spending so much time around the hotel. The only small complaint we had was that because we went on the 3rd May, it was quite early in the season and the air con was not provided. We had the patio doors open at night but this caused a huge problem with mosquitos in the room. The hotel however provided us with a plug in repelent which helped but didnt cure the problem. There is a lovely walk from the hotel along the beach to the left which takes you over the mountain to see the next bay which is adorable. We also were fascinated with the mountain goats so i would recommend this for anyone who likes walking. I would definatley go back to this hotel as the staff made the holiday for us, very memorable. It certainly is worthy of its 5 star rating.

Room Tip: Definately have a sea view. It is worth paying a little more for.

Just return from one off the most relaxing holidays ever, which is exactly what we wanted.
Cocktails were amazing, try the mojitos , perfect at the end of a busy day sunbathing.
Everywhere was so clean and the gardens were maintained to a high standard with beautiful flowers everywhere.

Room Tip: Sea view with balcony

Excellent hotel ,food variety excellent do not miss the chef cooking fresh it can be adapted exactly how you like and he is very enthusiastic to get it right for you. Service exceptional although need more bar staff although they work flat out at night they can not keep up for demand I had to wait 10 mins for service one night Hotel very modern and pretty. WiFi no good though in rooms and you pay so Check you get connection before purchase.

We arrived in Greece on the 17th May 2014 for a week, we had an hour and 15 min delay from Luton. Upon arrival in Greece we were in and out the airport in half hour, greeted by the Thomas cook rep and directed to a coach, we arrived at the hotel about 23:15, if you go all inclusive the bar ends at 23:00 but you can continue to buy drinks. We were taken to our room in a buggy and pointed places out to us on route to our room.
The rooms are nicely done out, with a jacuzzi bath, plenty of wardrobe space, a free safe, kettle with tea coffee and milk, TV with sky news, BBC news and a film channel, waiting in our room was a nice ham and cheese salad, bottle of wine and bottle of water with a bowl of fruit (nice touch).
The fridge only contained water which was all inclusive but nothing else, it seems if your half board you get more things which you have to pay for!
There are two pools not particularly warm, but got better with the warm weather, which reached 29 degrees while we were there.
There is a towel hut by the biggest pool to get your beach towel from daily.
The beach is pebbly and the sea was cold, there are sunbeds and umbrellas in white, others you have to pay for.
The staff were all lovely I could not fault any of them, they all worked hard and were always pleasant.
The hotel was very quiet, no music by the pool, never saw any daytime entertainment, in the evening there were singers but this only happened on three evenings, on the fourth they didn't turn up.
There is free wifi in the reception area but if it was busy it was hard to connect.
The food was nice, lots of things to choose from, soup, meat dishes, fish, chips, pasta and nice salads. As you enter the restraurant in the evening you get given a drink, mohito, ouzo, sangria, gin to name a few. There is a dress code in the main restaurant in the evening where men have to where long trousers but I did see a couple of men with shorts on.
There is a bar near the pool that also does food until 16.00 where you select from a menu, and between four and six you can get snacks. We only ate in here on our last day and it was nice again a little pricey if you had to pay.
My only gripe with this hotel is that it doesn't offer free use of the gym, you can pay five euros just for the gym or 35 euros for a week and this would then include the use of the indoor pool, again you have to pay 5 euros to use the indoor pool, this has to be the first five star hotel where I have been and you have to pay for the gym.
There is a tennis court which is free and football pitch and crazy golf.
The bar offers lots of different drinks and cocktails and in my opinion is expensive if your not all inclusive, you can get white and red wine but not rose which seems odd on all inclusive, all the cocktails are made fresh and nice, Antonio works hard behind the bar and is a perfectionist. If your all inclusive and it has a crown next to it then it's free, if you sign a receipt then your paying!
Antonio was working alone with a female waitress and occassionally someone else came and helped him out.
On our last day we vacated our room at twelve and was given a shower room later in the day for 30 minutes but you couldn't reserve this, you are all inclusive until you leave which was a bonus. Outside the hotel were some shops, restaurants and bars.
I would recommend this hotel if your looking for peace and quiet but not ideal for the young as there is not much to do unless you venture out.
We never went on any trips so I can't comment on anything else nearby.
I would not return to this hotel just based on the fact you have to pay for the gym I don't agree you should pay for this and also the little touches like a mini bar.This holiday was not cheap and I would expect everything to be included.
