Just got back from a two holiday at this hotel, my husband booked it as an anniversary brake for us, what a mistake, we arrived just after 22.00 hrs on a Saturday, we were taken to the hotel by the transfer coach driver, no rep on the coach, we arrived at reception booked in and fitted with the white wrist bands, we rquested some food and refreshments only to be told the resturant was closed, at this point we were directed to our room and left to our own devices to find it and carry our own cases, they put us in the new block oppersite the pool bar, we had requested a high floor in a low noise area and paid extra for a sea view, what a let down, we had to wait until 13.00 hrs the next day to move, the hotel offered no assistance and we had to move our selves from room to room.
After a couple of days we began to notice the room wasn't being cleaned to a satisfactory degree, you could see wear the mop had been pushed round the room and back out the front door, the shower was not cleaned for several days and there were dirty stains on the floor under the sink for a week and still there we we left.
I agree with other people the main dinning room appears to ressemble a canteen and dated rather a 4* resturant, the food adequate mostly served warm and very repedative.
The drinks served at both pool bars are of very low quality, and don't go to the lower pool bar if you expect to be served with smile, the barman there is the original mister grummpy, pool side snacks, are of cheese and ham sandwiches wrapped in klingfilm and kept in an old chiller or an hot dog if available, if you want to be served with a smile go to the top pool bar and see Filip or Oliver, nice guy's working in adverse conditions, but aways happy.
The sun beds on the beach look like they have seen more winters than Father Christmas and are sun bleached and tatty, and for this they want to charge 4 euros a day each, vote on this one with your feet, it's the same price all down the beach.
Also be awear that this hotel is not in Lindos and is well back from the beach and although you can pay extra for a sea view room, the view is partly obscewered by another hotel on the right hand side, Lindos is a descent hike or taxi ride away, confirm the price with the driver before setting off, should be 12 euros to Lindos and 8 euros back fixed price, be prepared to be ripped of if you haven't agreed the price first.
This hotel is not a 4* hotel by any standard, it appears to be the lower end of a 3*, maybe, I think who ever rated this hotel must have been on the international brands the night before, if they could find any !!!
The management at this hotel are cutting costs to the point, that it was not worth the money that Thomsons are charging, and the holiday was overpriced and we felt that we had been fleeced.
I can't beleave the Thomsons representative Becky doe's not know of these problems, after all she as been there all season, we started to pick up bad feed back after only two days from other holiday guests.
Thomsons need to reavaluate there thinking as regards this hotel, or risk damage to their reputation, as for this hotel it is a case of "Buyer Beware" we would not return to this hotel again, it is not value for money.
We would question the use of this operator in future having had this experience.
