Just returned from a 2 week stay. Boy, was it hot!! But it was a great place to stay.
Pros: Staff helpful and friendly; not gourmet cooking, but very very tasty, and all the standards if you like Greek food as much as we do; apartments spacious and cleaner in everyday, with clean laundry every other. Pool beautiful and plenty of sunbeds for everyone.
Local bus service good and not too expensive, 1euro 60 to Pefki and only 5euros 50 to Rhodes Town which is 30 miles away. Much cheaper than UK and more reliable.
George's rent-a-car offered us a good deal on 3 days rental. Be warned though, not many petrol stations on Rhodes, so get it when you can.
Several restaurants in Lothiarika, which is the name of the village where the apartment is. We ate at Sunshine Hotel most and built up a rapport with Peter who is one of the sons who run it. Not out of the way in price (similar to here). Tried 2 of the others in the main road area, but not as good as Sunshine.
Can also recommend Vergina Taverna down the beach a bit, George (another one) is the owner and offers a good line in hospitality and excellent fresh fish dishes. You can also use his pool, and we did, had it all to ourselves on 2 separate occasions. It was great. Exceptionally well maintained too.
Many other nationalities staying, which we enjoyed. We only saw one other English family there.
A good place to stay if you do not want to be in the centre of everything.
If your flight out is late then they have the option of offering a shower free or you can hire a room for 20 euros.
Impressed with the pick up for transfer - he was on the dot of the time we had been told and so we arrived at the airport early and - no queue at check-in.
Cons: Air con and safe for 2 weeks worked out at £114, a little expensive but due to the heat we did need the air con.
Beach was quite pebbly in places and rocks just as you get into the water, not my favourite, as I am not confident in the sea unless there is sand.
Most of the rooms are good
