This was a last minute booking and so I was ready to accept what I booked. I had a lot of difficulty with Opodo (booking agent) cancelling my confirmed flights, so a lost day of holiday. I was going to make the best of the five days left and not complain. This hotel was not self catering as had been confirmed to me by Opodo and so for little difference in money I could have had a better choice of any hotel in Rhodes for our family of five who now would have to eat out everyday. (Each meal was coming to over 120 Euros a time). The air conditioning listed was actually chargeble at 5 Euros per room per day. There was not 24 hour front desk service, in fact it was usually deserted so there was none of the usual tourist help. There was no approachability and we felt apologetic when we had to seek out Mr Varelis and report one room with a leaking toilet or when asking for the air conditioning control. In fact the atmosphere was miserable. At least the rooms were clean. On about day three all the towels in one of our rooms were taken away and not replaced, we had each brought our own towels from home so it did not matter. I put most things down to the booking agent misrepresenting the holiday and we enjoyed making our own holiday. My teenagers' first day's excitement in the pool was a great disappointment with dead bugs and being unable to see their own hands in the murky water and being unable to find their water toys at the bottom of the pool. So each day we chose to drive out to beaches. With this hotel I do recommend hiring a car because of the distance the hotel is from the amenities in the heat and there being little else to do. (Our car hire was £350). We loved The Water Park and Kallithea Springs. When we were leaving to catch the shops before closing Mr Varelis stopped us from behind front desk concerned about getting payment from the only booking information Opodo had sent. So to avoid him worrying and waste no more of our holiday time I offered to pay and reclaim on VISA but he only accepts cash payments and as I had already paid I left him with proof of my phone numbers and address in case of problem as I told him I would be checking out early next morning because we were going horse riding for 7am. On my return home I was shocked to find a message on my home answerphone from Mr Varelis, "You have taken with you four towels. Why? I feel very sorry. I will ask the travel agent to pay for four towels." I am livid. I never took four towels, We travelled with hand luggage only and being mum mine was full with five sets of snorkels, masks and swim shoes so four secondhand towels are the last thing I'd want to carry in my bag! I spent almost £4000 in total chasing five days of holiday. Mr Varelis should not have left such a message without questioning himself. Where is his Greek wisdom? Quite simply he did not replenish the towels in the room and I am so shocked to be accused. It borders on crazy. Do not spoil an otherwise happy holiday memory when there are far happier, better value for money places to stay on this excellent island.

This holiday was booked last minute. My sister and I were looking for a week in the sun away from it all where we could relax, take in the sights and spend time together. We found it in Hotel Varelis and the area of Archangelos! Mr Varelis and his family were welcoming, the rooms clean, bright and roomy and there was an air of relaxation throughout our week-long stay. It was fantastic to eat breakfast outside under the trellis covered in vine leaves while staring at the pool and then further out to the beautiful scenery. Just one thing to note - the hotel is not near the beach and is a 10/15 minute walk to the town of Archangelos (look out the Hellas Taverna for fantastic food and hospitality), so if you have mobility issues, I would recommend hiring a car. We walked or took buses whenever we wanted to venture out, but Mr Varelis will help you organise car or moped hire if you like. In fact, because the hotel is small and intimate, we got to know many other residents and were offered lifts on a couple of occasions! Definitely recommended and we will be going back.

It is a perfect place to enjoy a relaxing holiday. Nice rooms, a garden and a pool - everything safe, especially for small children. The family is warm and frienly. It is on the east coast in the middle . A perfect place to explore the island. mr. Varelis helps you to hire a car or a motorbike and gives a lot of useful information how to handle everything. We will come again! In spring or autumn perfect for a hiking holiday!!!!
