Returned home from the Kolymbia Star Hotel in Rhodes last week. I went open minded after reading some recent reviews and think the best way to describe the holiday and hotel in Positive and Negative comments.
First the positive: Exceptionally clean hotel, beds changed 12 days out of 14. Pools and reception area immaculate and the gardens are lovely with flowers and bushes. Obviously the weather was excellent.
Now the negatives: The hotel is a good half hours walk to any form of life except for a small supermarket or two and a taverna closer by. There was no entertainment in the hotel because it was nearly out of season - 2nd week in October. After my wife complained the management arranged a Greek evening towards the end of the holiday but we had arranged to go out on a coach trip! The food was luke warm most of the time and repetitive.
Conclusion: If you want a holiday that you can relax and 'chill out' this would be good but if you want to enjoy other things you need to hire a car to get around. The buses are ok but we did have to stand to go to Rhodes town one day. The swimming both in the sea and pool is great.
The restaurant Manager was very nice and seemed to care but the staff were generally biased towards the German guests to the point of neglecting to cleas plates from our table at the end of courses.
