I visited here with my boyfriend last Oct and really enjoyed it. I can't say that it was excellent because there are some things that the staff need to update but nothing major!
We stopped in a little villa type thing which i think all the rooms are like, on the upper floor, it was lovely, spacious and clean with a really nice bathroom and private balcony, can't fault the room at all.
The main part of the hotel is again clean and lovely with a shop downstairs and two nice friendly bars that all have a very classy feel. There is a snack bar just outside that was incredibly helpful for when you were by the pool and is open nearly all day offering light snacks and hot food such as chips, pizza etc. There's a bar outside by the pool that has nice staff and nicer drinks! The entertainment is brilliant! I may be in my twenties but the kids entertainment was so funny and you can't help but joining in the dances! 'choco-latte, choco-latte!' The stage is outside but so is most of the dining which is under a terrace roof thing and actually works really well, just take a light cardigan if you plan on staying there all night just incase the wind picks up.
Everyone gets a free day in the spa which is just across the road in the 'adult only' part. Or i believe it was called that, there is also another outside pool there that we used on the last day along with another pool bar. The spa isn't massively big but has a gym, sauna, heated stone chairs etc brilliant if it rains one day which it did for us :( boo!
The area it's self doesn't look like it has alot going on around it but if you carry on walking past the beach then there are little arcades and 'tack' shops, you know those brilliant little holiday shops that are everyone's guilty pleasure! :) There is also a holiday rep offering day trips that are fun. If you do the Rhodes by night tour, make sure you take something to wrap up in as you are there quite late and we did start to get cold, there is also glorious shopping there so take money! The other thing is you do get a little meal but it is really quite EXOTIC should i say, so if your kind of picky eat something before!The tour guide we had was brilliant and really had a passion for his work, can't remember his name but we loved him :)
The beach is about 5minutes walk and beautiful! Lovely sand and it is fairly quiet too, the sea was also gorgeously warm even in the late weeks of October! We spent most of our time here as it was so lovely.
The all inclusive food was just like any other kind with a buffet spread, hot food came out at all times so there's no rush but to avoid screaming children go a little later. There is different foods placed in each night and the meat was some of the best i have ever had. Waiters/waitresses are always on hand to greet and show you to your table although you go up and get the food yourselves. People who go all inclusive regularly will no the drill :)
Now for the let down part. The pools are FREEZING! No heating nothing and i literally couldn't even go in them, trust me we are water sports people so when we say cold we mean cold! I have no idea why but even on the sunniest of days the pools don't warm up and the hotel seriously needs to add heating into them. The water park section is a little warmer and probably just bearable but that's it. Such a shame as it's a nice place to lounge around but if you want to swim i strongly suggest going to the beach where the sea was lovely and clear!
Overall we had a lovely holiday. Probably wouldn't go back as we have done it now and i like a warm pool but wouldn't discourage anyone going and would reccomend you go in the hotter weather and the pool may be warm then :)
