Returned last week after 2 weeks at the Maran. The hotel is lovely very clean and the staff are so friendly and helpful...love Ritza on the bar and Charlie is sooo funny :o)
The rooms are basic, but we do not expect anything more as we have always gone on cheap self catering hols...and only use a room to sleep and shower and change...what else do you want it for on holiday...right??!! As long as it is clean and comfortable that suits me. The bedding and towels are changed 6 days a week,someone mentioned that the maids dont speak English...what!..you are in Greece...lol. I was quite disappointed when I arrived on this visit to Rhodes to find that the Greek people speak amazing English, I hardly got the chance to try out my holiday greek phrases. The rooms are hot on a night, there is air con or hire a fan...we just left the balcony door open and the bathroom window and door open and the breeze went through.
The hotel reception is open 24hrs, free Wifi, and there is a small supermarket for basics, they will open it up if you ask after closing times. It was great by the pool as I do not spend too much time there usually, but this time around we spent a lot of the second week there, it is very quiet and ample sun loungers to go around, plenty of umberellas and trees for shade if you want out of the blazing sun for a spell, snacks and light meals can be bought at the pool snack bar for a reasonable price along with cocktails and your favourite tipple.
When we first arrived our balcony was blocked by a 50ft palm tree...after our first week we asked if we could move and it was no trouble at all. We were moved to the top floor at the front of the hotel...WOW what an amazing view of Faliraki and the sea..it was stunning sitting on the balcony before going out.
As already mentioned...put this hotel at the bottom of the hill and it would have been ideal for me, but after a week of up and down the hill I did not want to do it anymore...that is why we spent the second week in the hotel pool...but saying that I have been to Rhodes 6 times and seen most of it anyway, and saw a lot in the first week so nothing was spoiling...you can get a taxi from faliraki to the hotel for 5 euros and there is a bus stop outside which will take you to Rhodes Town for 2.20 euros one way via faliraki centre and the waterpark.
I would definately stay at this hotel again if I go to Rhodes for a week and looking for just a relaxing holiday. Rhodes is an amazing place ...I love it :o)
Oh ...and at the bottom of the road there is a restaurant called Mikes...lovely food all fresh...he does an amazing pizza (massive) and will deliver to the hotel..or if you order at the restaurant he will run you up to the hotel in his car...killing 2 birds with one stone...lol
