Have just arrived back from Sun Palace hotel in faliraki. Brilliant resort for families with young children. Hotel really clean, the staff are fantastic, and work really hard to ensure you have a good time, the apartment we were in was balcony / sea view which overlooked part of the pool area but gave us ample space with our own balcony and as it was only 2 floors high, no one above us and not overlooked by any one else. The weather is absolutely fantastic at the moment between 35 - 42 degrees which we believe is going to get hotter from next month onwards, make sure you take enough insect repellant and keep your air conditioning on.
Food was great and was never in short supply, even round the pool area for snacks, ice creams refreshments.
There are more than enough sunbeds if you want to spend your time around the pool area. Not allowed to save sunbeds before 8am, and if you do towels will be removed and you collect from reception. But as stated theres no need to try and save a sunbed.
The Entertaiment was really good especially for the children so a "Great Big Thank you" to Wesley, Monika, Ralouco and Lynsey for ensuring that as many children even the adults were given the opportunity to participate in lots of day and night time activities. You really are a credit and work really hard. My grand daughter loved the clown and mini disco, and looked forward to the entertainment with yoursleves each night.
"Respect" to Wesley and co and hope you have a really good summer season.
If you are looking for entertainment away from the hotel and are considering to book activities, you can book them from your tour rep but we did the greek night which was not best value for money. We hired a car outside of the hotel for 3 days and visited Rhodes old town and new, Lindos beach (which is a must !!!!!!) the hottest day we had there.
travelled around the island and visited pefkos, kalithea, afandou. The Greek people are very friendly and welcoming and helpful. If you go to Rhodes old town and have a meal in the castle try the Archpelagos rooftop graden restaurant the food is absolutely lovely.
Like everywhere else it can be really expensive if you are buying gifts even some items in the airport which is duty free can be more expensive than on the aeroplane (perfume etc) than back home. The Sun Palace hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the main nightlife of Faliraki which is no where near as bad as what was portrayed a few years ago. Would I recommend this hotel MOST DEFINITELY.
