Having been brought back from the Algarve in March we saw the opportunity to return in October, only for that to be dashed. Rhodes seemed the place to go to with the least fuss, no test required. So did not know what to expect from this hotel. We were pleasently surprised at being informed at the reception that masks were only required in the hotel shop the rest of the hotel was mask free. The room was classed as a garden room but was on the end of the hotel and gave a view not only inland but along the beach to Faliraki, the room was kept clean, plenty of hangers for clothes, there was afridge but no kettle so we took our own for the morning brew. The food was of good quality and variety, we used the snack bar for lunch, it's the first time we have found a snack bar with decent food. The service in the restaurant and snack bar due to covid means everybody has to queue, no pushing and shoving all served in turn. The server holds the plate while you say what you want and then hands it to you to take back to your table. The pool was good for me being a poor swimmer, like a lazy river no lengths so I wasn't in anybodys way. Sun loungers around the pool had plenty of towels on them but you could find one away from the pool or on the beach easily. The entertainment was better than average you can also go across the road to the sister hotel if they had something more to your taste. The bars were well stocked, Beefeater Gin for me ouzo for the wife, shandies in the afternoon. All the staff were very friendly the waitress in the reastaurant had drinks n the table before we got there. The bar staff laughed alot even though they were very busy. The lifts were a nusiance due to covid regulations being on the middle floor and unfortunatly suffering with bad knees the stairs were out, the lifts frequently passed by with only two people in them. Fortunatly not everyon stuck to the rules.

Well just back from a week here ! Mixed feelings as the hotel is lovely and most of the staff friendly but agree 90% German so snack time was pot luck what you got 😂 the staff could have full on conversation with Germans but struggled with English !! So you were literally pointing to food as you were not allowed to use tongs and with most food not signed saying what it was it was like lucky dip , 6/10 I got what I asked for ,breakfast very poor most food was cold so we ended up going out for meals , only good meal was the al la carte . Lifts were an issue and our first room wasn’t even made up took us 3 attempts to get room we paid for ! But we did have birthday cakes delivered to our room as it was our birthdays which was a nice touch but missed a kettle or coffee maker also got bitten over 20 times :(think all inclusive in covid times is not good but we went to the Pelagus hotel in kos in September which was amazing if this hotel took a tip off them all would be ok as they gave all people disposable plastic gloves each so then you could use the tongs and get your own drinks in a sensible way . Wouldn’t re visit

Let's start with positives me and my partner were there for a week all inclusive staff really friendly and drinks ok but due to covid portion control was just n operation accomodation ok grounds and beach excellent plenty of sun beds. Now reasons why we think this is not good food just about made a two star rating with most meals cold and not enough variety.leading to three nights of 7 dining out. This hotel should be advertised as a German hotel 90 percent of guests were German If you book ask for sea veiw room as garden veiw is opposite the one major road through Rhodes and busy most of night noisy. Lifts were painfully slow so spent most of holiday climbing 5 flights of stairs To summarize this is a decent 4 star hotel with just about 2 star food if you have to eat out most of week it tells its own story ultimately left disappointed and hungry.

This would not have been our first choice to be honest, but due to all the travel restrictions with COVID we had already had Majorca, Bahamas and Turkey cancelled so we really wanted to get away. I have to say this review is based on the cost we paid to get here – which is probably a bit of TUI trying to recoup losses! However, we paid a fortune so the review is based on that. I would also caveat the review by saying the staff are wonderful, particularly the Maitre’d, Nikos, who could not do enough for you at dinner service and if you didn’t like the options, would arrange to get you something else. I think if Nikos ran the hotel, it would be a much better set up. There are three lifts for over 300 rooms and only 2 people (or one household) are allowed in them at any time. And two of them broke down during our first week. That is a big issue at specific times and you are better (and quicker) taking the stairs even if you are on the 6th floor – so get some exercise in before you come!! The WiFi is sporadic within the rooms but seems to be okay around the pool and common areas. Due to COVID (and this is I am sure every hotel, not just here), you cannot help yourself to food in the buffet restaurant. However, it is very disorganised at this hotel resulting in really big unnecessary queues. That being said, the servers providing coffee and orange juice in the morning are really efficient but don’t think you will ever have a quick breakfast! The food is not good, it really is not good at all. I am not a serial moaner as can be seen from previous reviews but this has to be some of the worst food I have experienced, it is simply shocking and very repetitive. For example, every day, lunch was pasta, gyros, burgers, hot dogs and a selection of another 2 dishes (which more often than not were the previous dinner options). Also for dinner, it was veal one night, veal stroganoff the next and peppered veal the next. Every meal choice seems to have the same sauce – whether it’s chicken, beef, veal or mushrooms – some red ragu/ratatouille sauce. We checked out the A la Carte menu but didn’t think much of it so didn’t bother using the voucher we had been given. We offered the voucher to a few others but they declined saying the food was terrible! If, like us, you enjoy your food on holiday, then do not come here. The food is tepid at best and a lot of the lunchtime options are simply just cold – not, not hot but cold. It is not good food – I cannot stress this enough. Despite the notices, there are a LOT of people who “book” sunbeds the night before which is a bit of a pain (in the main due to the majority of guests being German) but we never had a problem getting a bed although all the best spots were “booked” by 7am. Big negative for us is that there are no tea/coffee facilities in the room so the only option is to get up and go to the restaurant. There are A LOT of kids at this hotel so if that’s not your thing, maybe reconsider. And not the hotel’s fault but I would seriously consider a private transfer from the airport. We hung about at the airport for 30 minutes longer than anticipated waiting on 2 people who had decided to get a taxi! Oh and one (or two) other thing(s). There is absolutely no sound proofing in the hotel so be prepared to get up when your neighbours do!! The maid service starts around 8am so that was effectively our alarm call!! And during our time here (probably COVID related again) there was no evening snack bar so there was no food between dinner finishing at 9.30pm and breakfast at 7am – so not really all inclusive – although we more than paid for it. POSITIVES – Regardless of your transfer, the hotel is only about 25 minutes from the airport. We arrived and had a mountain (opposite hotel) view but were very quickly changed to the sea view room we requested and received a beautiful fruit basket for the inconvenience. The hotel manager was superb. The beds are comfy and the rooms are adequate, although the pillows are like bricks, so says my husband who has a pillow issue mostly everywhere we go. The entertainment (except for the kids half hour) is really good. The caveat here is that we are two adults with no kids, so perhaps staying in a family oriented hotel was our mistake. The beer is decent enough and plentiful, although served in a less than half pint glass, which, if you think about it, adds to the queues due to the need for constant refills – use pint glasses Mr Management; the vodka is supposedly Glens and is decent enough. The wine is ok. But for red wine your options are dry or sweet – no Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Rioja. There appears to be a number of “cocktails” but these are just premix and lemonade. They are truly shocking. The hotel’s position is right on its own stretch of beach, with water sports leaving from immediately outside. Parasailing, water skiing, donut rides, etc, so all good there. Whilst we have been here, two kids were killed in the neighbouring Linda’s when their parasailing rope was cut by the boat operators, resulting in them crashing to their death on the rocks below – think about this before taking the risk as the operators seem unregulated. Boat tours and boat transfers into Faliraki leave from the beach area, so easily accessed. We took the boat to Rhodes Town which was great - €15 return each and definitely worth it. There is also a bus stop outside the hotel. (Hubby addition – Rhodes town is excellent, particularly the old town. If we come back to Rhodes, this is where we would stay. Just be aware of the huge variance in beer prices – from €2.50 - €5.00, depending on what street you are in). In summary, the hotel itself is a bit tired and in need of decoration and modernisation. It should be priced far cheaper to reflect it’s food offering – we spent almost €900 just going out to get some half decent food and drink. I would probably say it’s a three star hotel – somewhere between a Travel Lodge and a dated Premier Inn. On the positive side, most of the staff are really nice and friendly (except for the really grumpy one at the pool bar). And a final point, if you switch on the loo light, be careful not to switch on the Do Not Disturb button or your room won’t be cleaned. And a final final point, over 90% of guests are German so the entire setup is geared towards them which may explain some of the food choices. Would we come back? Not even as a gift!

Ok so I am writing this honest review as you can see there aren’t many on here from 2020 so we have just come back. I am not one to write reviews but this hotel needed one. We was in need of a deserved break away after two holidays being cancelled this was our last opportunity to get away this year. We arrived and the rooms were wrong , so had to move the following day. The staff were rude and very unhelpful with starveros being one of them And the bar manager was even RUDER no patience , They even struggled to smile , they Turned lights out on us when we were having a drink in which was worrying as we had a visually impaired person in our family. This hotel does not cater for children, all they had to offer was chips chips and more chips as a main dinner. But To be fair one man nikos was wonderful as he got his chef too cook fillet chicken each night as I felt that just chips wasn’t gonna do it ... so Thankyou ! The food was very bland and cold on every meal time .. never a hot meal, unless it was off the griddle. If you were late , they would not serve you. The drinks I’m sorry were not branded and tasteless even off the pump so no hope for a decent pina colada. There was a crepe place that was serving all day , choc , ham cheese , biscuit , cinnamon or jam filled .. His crepes saved the day. Rooms are very basic but were very clean. We had to plead for a kettle as none were given in your room you had to request this , we had to get our own cups from the paper cup machine in the lobby and buy our own milk and get our own sugar. The pool was very inviting and the slide was lovely , but was laced with heavy chemicals and was freezing ! If it started to rain slightly everyone was told to get out of the pool and they closed it. And not in a very polite man at either. Kids looked scared . As usual it was a rush to get the beds in the morning by the pool but if you couldn’t get one there , there were plenty on the beach . The saving grace was the hotel was on the beach , it was beautiful and clean. Not good for snorkel people though . The entertainment was cringe worthy ... all catered for the Germans but they tried there best With the covid in the world .. no masks were worn at any time none around the restaurant or bar areas . ( which were needed ) as no one was bothered About social distancing so no measures were in place what so ever ! Except for you were not aloud to touch or help yourself to anything. This hotel is a 2star if you are lucky. This hotel is not for the English .. so not advised! We will not being going back to this hotel again or area.
