We booked this trip to Rhodes last minute through Thomas Cook via First Choice. We upgraded our room to a Suite with a Sea View.
Upon arriving very early in the morning, we were taking to our room. Very modern and clean as well as spacious. The balcony looked out over the new upper pool with views of the sea and the surrounding areas. The Bathroom was huge with a wet room and a bath.
Unfortunately we missed the welcome meeting with Laura the First Choice Rep, but we were filled in on information by the very helpful staff.
The first day we were here we wanted to visit Lindos, a bus collects you from opposite the hotel. The only downside was that if the bus didn't turn up on time, it wouldn't turn up! This did happen to us but the hotel staff kindly ordered us a taxi to take us to the village. The taxi ride in itself was like a ride at Alton Towers.
The second day we used the Hotel Reception to order a hire car at a very good rate.
Food at this hotel was amazing, and it was so difficult not to go over the top. Breakfast was served from 7 until 10.30, so unlike other hotels you didn't have to rush around to get up. There was lots of choice, including the usual Bacon, Sausage and Eggs!
We only used the Lindos once for lunch, as every other day we were out and about. But the day we did, there was a great choice in Salads and food.
Evening meals were excellent, Kay and her staff looked after us very well and explained a lot of the dishes to us. Even recommending places to go in the UK for the Greek dishes we did enjoy. There was always fresh salad, fish dishes and specials every night. Again, very difficult in deciding what to have, so I over ate and had a bit of everything.
Drinks in the bar were non-branded, although you couldn't really taste the difference. In the restaurant there was a choice of beer, wine and soft drinks. Pool side you could choose cocktails, beer, wines and spirits. The beer was quite nice and the Mojitos was made using all fresh mint and lemon, very refreshing.
We didn't use the lower pool, due to the walk. But we spent a lot of time at the upper (new) pool. We found that the newer building cast a shadow over the pool about 3.30, which we found very helpful so that my son didn't burn. The pool wasn't overly busy and we met some very nice people from the UK, which we got to know and we will be keeping in touch.
The staff were all very good, and nothing was too much trouble. Philip behind the upper bar was always very pleasant and Kay with her girls were fantastic in the Restaurant.
I would recommend this hotel to all my family and friends without hesitation. Its location may put a few people off, but we found the place very quiet and pleasant with its beach extremely close by. Public Transport I found difficult, but the advantages of the taxi's in Rhodes means that the fixed costs help with knowing exactly what you will be paying without being ripped off.
We are glad we paid extra for the suites, although nobody we spoke to complained about the rooms in the older building. Air Con was well needed due to the 35 degree weather.
Thanks again to the staff of this hotel for helping provide a great and relaxing holiday!
