This is a tale of two halves. The older part of the hotel (the garden view rooms) does not live up to expectation. The air conditioning is very basic with three settings off, half or full and barely makes a difference in the room. Although it appeared to be clean when we first arrived I had to ask for the bedding to be changed twice after the room had been cleaned because our 'clean sheets' were stained and pillow cases covered in someone else's mascara. I still have no idea whether the towels were changed at all in the two weeks we were there. The newer part of the hotel seems to be much more modern and from reports of other guests much nicer (although you will pay more to stay there).
There were always beds by the pool and the music was not offensively loud. There is an entertainment team of 2 but they didn't have much interest and generally were more annoying trying to get you to join in on their stretching class. Evening entertainment was sparse and generally we had to entertain ourselves by playing cards with other guests - expect 2 evenings of entertainment (not anything amazing) a week.
The food was generally good (although it was hard to tell if there were themed evenings) with a fair amount of choice. The barstaff were very friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately they ran out of peach schnapps when we were there and no more had been ordered which meant several of the cocktails were unavailable which limited an already limited cocktail menu.
If you want to go out of the hotel a taxi to lindos which is about 5 minutes drive will cost you 12 euros which seems quite expensive. We went with Thompson / First choice and have had no end of problems with their excursion line - book in resort with the rep as this seems much easier.
I wouldn't go back to this resort as it did not seem anywhere near the 4 star I was expecting.
