Myself and my girlfriend decided to try Rhodes for a week. We booked through Thomsons and chose this resort as it was Adult Only. We had booked half board but on arrival chose to upgrade to All Inclusive and thank god we did. We were there for the last week in October so was only 2 weeks before the end of the season. On these dates the "town" of Kolymbia is basically shut so if you don't do all inclusive you either starve at lunchtime or pay for the buffet everyday. The food in the restaurant was great - fantastic choice of dishes and some nice themed evenings - Italian and Asian nights went down a storm. At lunchtime the greek burgers are to die for!! Also as all inclusive drinks were free all day and night whether it be a beer or cocktail by the pool, wine with dinner or the quite common for us bottle of water before bed.
The weather at this time of year is warm but not too hot which is perfect. Also we had some fantastic evening Thunder and Lightning storms although we did have a couple of power cuts because of these. One night the lightning was like a constant flashing light which was annoying but not the fault of the hotel.
Our room was Huge and very comfortable and the balcony had a nice uninterrupted view of the sea. A couple of extra english channels on the TV would have been nice. The bar with the terrace area was a nice place to relax after dinner.
The entertainment was not so great - it was end of the season and such felt like not much effort was being put into it and found the entertainment reps a bit annoying personally.
The main downside and the reason for not getting 5 out of 5 was the cats - there are a number of cats roaming around the pool area and inside the restaurant too which is unhygenic for sure. The worse thing is they can be quite aggresive and have no worries jumping up and stealing un attended loungers. Also some regular older guests have named them and fed them which did not help. If this was cat free it would be perfeect.
All in all a really enjoyable stay and would def recommend to others - especially cat lovers!
