The hotel is located just outside Paradissi, only a 10 euro taxi ride from the airport, so do not book a transfer.
If you do not like extreme heat, the weather in October on Rhodes is perfect, with temperatures in the mid twenties during the day and cooler at night.
The reception building consists of a downstairs lounge/TV area and restaurant upstairs. The restaurant has an outside seating area on a balcony overlooking the pool, with a views across the sea to Turkey and surrounding hills. There are 58 rooms at the hotel, set in two storey buildings with about 7 rooms in each building. The rooms are fairly basic but clean and functional. There was a fridge, hairdryer, TV, airconditioning (extra 5 euros a day) and a balcony with a table and chairs, with an insect screen on the door. There is a big pool, which is very deep, kept lovely and clean and was a pleasure to swim in.
Meals were served at a hot and cold buffet, with a good variety of salad items at lunch and dinner. Whilst there was not a great choice at the hot buffet, this was more than made up for by the quality of the lovely home cooked food. Wine, beer and soft drinks were served with the meals.
The all inclusive bar was between 1000 hrs and 2230 hrs, with only wine and beer being served prior to 1700 hrs, after which local spirits and cocktails were available. The wine and beer were probably the best we have had at an all inclusive hotel, which was a real bonus.
The only downside to this hotel is it's location. It is about a 20 minute walk to the local village, with very few street lighs and no pavement, so a walk after dinner was out of the question. There is a bus stop at the end of the road, but the bus service is not very reliable, with buses either not turning up, not stopping or braking down (all of which we experienced). The planes landing and taking off from the nearby airport were a pleasant distraction and did not bother us at all.
The 12 staff were all friendly and helpful and would go out of their way to assist their guests. We asked for a taxi to take us to the airport at the end of our stay, but along with another couple were taken there by the Sophie in her own car.
Overall this is an excellent family run hotel, with first class food, drink and hospitality - great for a relaxing break in the sun by a pool.
