“Sunny Days”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

This was our first stay at Sun Beach 1 and would definately go back again. We had a lovely apartment on the 4th. floor overlooking the bay with Rhodes in the distance, a great view first thing in the morning. the apartment was cleaned daily, towels and sheets changed when requested. Staff were courteous and very helpful. We enjoyed "Happy Hour" every evening and always came back to the bar at night because Gina who runs the bar was such fun. Yippee!!!!! Plenty of good restaurants in and around Ialyssos to eat out every night. If your flight is late afternoon/evening they have an apartment where you can shower and change before departure without having to pay for late availability rooms.

This was our second stay at the Sun Beach Resort, we had a ground floor apartment in Sun Beach 1 just by the pool. The apartment was cleaned daily and was spotless. It was a little bland in its decor compared with other 'timeshare' places we've stayed in but perfectly adequate.
Gina, who runs the main bar is hilarious, she was there 3 years ago and remembered us which was nice. She is the life and soul of the place. Yippee!!

Room Tip: Sun Beach 1 is much quieter than Sun Beach 2 and is closer to the beach. Not too many children this...

Just came back from 2 weeks in a Family room with half board. The complex is split in one building close to the beach with apartments, whereas we stayed in the part with hotel rooms across the road. Travelling with a familiy we would recommend the apartments, as they are of higher standard and have better view.

Although I have rated the complex 4 stars, the actual buidling and room we got did not deserve more than 3.

POOLS AND BEACH
Pools are great, kids love it. There are too few sunbeds - make sure to get to the pool before 8 o'clock if you want your favourite place in the sun. The animation team is doing a great job and creates positive athmosphere. Beach is not child friendly - pebbles and often high waves. Beach towels are rented for 2 Euro per towel.

FOOD
We had breakfast and dinner in Artemis restaurant. Buffets are ok - no more. Service is friendly, but they at times struggle with long queues to access the restaurant which was quite annoying.

FAMILY ROOM
Enough room for 2+2 but lower standard of room than expected. Go for self catering in sea view apartments for more or less same price.

IALYSSOS
Not a great place to be honest, but close to Rhodes city, which has athmosphere. Rent a car (cheap!) and visit the east part of the island, with sandy beaches great views and clear water. Or stay on the east coast...

Room Tip: Choose sea view apartments in Sun Beach 1

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to bring your feedback to our attention as well as for reviewing our hotel online.

We are pleased to read that you found the Sun Beach Resort Complex to be a good choice for families and would like to thank you for the comments made.

There are many room types in the resort mainly categorized based on the amenities offered and feel sorry to read that you perceived the family rooms to be of a lower standard but would like to assure you that this is not the case. Self catering units do have the advantage of being a bit more spacious and offer cooking facilities but in terms of furniture and quality they are of the same standards as the rooms found in the hotel resort building.

Thank you also for highlighting the resort’s swimming pools and for the rewarding comments made about our animation team; we have received some very enthusiastic feedback on this field from the majority of our guests and cannot stress how much we appreciate this.

We understand that food is something very subjective and a matter of personal taste however we would like to assure you that we have very few and isolated complains in regards to this aspect. Unfortunately during peak season time it is not unusual to encounter queues in hotel restaurants until guests are seated however we trust that the waiting time was minimal.

As far as the resort of Ialyssos is concerned, most of the holidaymakers perceive this to be a great place to mingle with the locals and feel the traditional and authentic Greek village vibe. Plenty of shops, local pubs and restaurants are available in the area, while the resort is the ideal holiday gateway not only to Rhodes town but to many other island attractions.

Once again thank you for your comments and very much hope to have the pleasure to welcome you back at the Sun Beach Resort Complex in the not so distant future.

Best Regards,
Sun Beach Resort Complex

Me and my girlfriend is here right now. This is my experience and i will not add things like" i dont like the food etc" because i know such things can rely in personal taste rather than reality. We arrived couple of days ago. The man in the reception notice we have laptops and gave us free wifi access. That was great! Specially because im in media-business and some time i have to be online if some situations occurs.( and actually... The occured;) ) but! We are in room 101 and... Let say it that way.. Im not sure this post will make it online. The wifi is nooooot good in this room, building 2, if i had pay for it i will propably been more frustated. But i have tols them that the signal is veeeeeery weak in this room. More informaly rathen than like a beatch:) the beds are hard and i dont know... If i ask they propably help us out somehow.. And the AC... I would preffer to have control over it because its to hot. The swimmingpool in sb2 is ok. The stuff is gently. One cool thing is the supermarket that is in the same building. Very flueless. We are using the "kitchen" in our room for breakfast and is wellfilled with things. For breakfaat we are making a kind of horiatiki sallad with fresh bread and frappe:)
We have rent a motobike(50cc) for the whole week so we are off to rhodos town every evening and on the days just exploring the island.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to post your review whilst in the resort.

We hope that you are having a great time so far and would like to thank you for the positive comments made in regards to our staff and the facilities found in the resort.

Rest assured that we have taken note of your further comment about the internet; this is something that will be addressed soon. In fact, we have just received this week the remaining access points that will eliminate any issues with the signal.

As far as the air conditioning system is concerned, we would like to clarify that the resort is advertised as having a centrally controlled system with the room temperature being set to 24 degrees and feel sorry to note that this was found to be not as cool as you would preferred it to be.

Once again thank you for your comments and very much hope that you will have a great holiday in both, our hotel and in Rhodes.

Best Regards,

Just returned after 1 week at Sun Beach Resort in Rhodes.

Hotel is very nice. We stayed in an 1 room appartement in Sun Beach 2, which is on the opposite side of the road from the main hotel. Room was spotless and the daily cleaning was very good. The room has facilites for making your own food and coffee etc. which is nice. The room looks like it has just had a renovation as it looked brand new.

The hotel is in walking distance from the beach and has several pool areas. Pools are clean and nice and it is a very good place to bring kids. Beach has stones so bathing shoes are highly recommended. Water was very nice.

We stayed with halfboard and had breakfast and dinner at the Artemis restaurant located in sun beach 2. Food was excellent. The buffets had different food every day, and the food was continously filled up and was fresh. There were different themes f.ex mexican, italian and so on.

The breakfast was stunning, with a varity you could only imagine. Very nice.

The general service was very good and all of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Greeks really are pleasent pepole.

There are two main bars, and on each side, and here I have to urge everyone who stays here to vist Gina in the Ialyssos bar in Sun Beach 1 - you won't forget it.

Only negative is that you have to pay for the internet connection and it is not cheap. 2.5 € for 30 minutes :-(

There are a lot of activities every day for adults and children above 13 years, for example table tennis, mini golf, archery, football, beach volley, dart and water polo. You can also play tennis or use the small gym without any additional cost. Of course there are activities and children clubs for kids also, but most hotel usually forgets children above 13.
We had breakfast and dinner every day at the hotel during 2 weeks. The variation at dinner was splendid and the food was delicious. We usually also ate the lunch at the pool bar, otherwise there are a lot of restaurants very close to the hotel.
The beach is not crowded with people. It is a little bit difficult to get into the water if you do not wear shoes, because of all small stones that hurts under your feet.
One hour massage at the hotel 55 EUR was great. You could have cheaper Thai massage at the beach, but I did not try that.
You can hear the airplanes almost every 15 minutes during the day, but it was quite interesting to look at them.There were less flights during the night.
There are no wash machine at the hotel. For 9 EUR you could send a 5 kg bag for laundry but we will never do that again. The cloths are almost destroyed, they smell perfume and we can not get rid of that smell even after several washes back at home. And the clothes were not even clean after the laundry service.
Our 13 year old daughter tried wind surfing for the first time. 5 hours for 130 EUR with a teacher in a group of four persons. She liked it a lot. The winds are perfect for wind surfing.

Room Tip: Select a room with full see view and you will get a perfect view.

Dear Valued Guest,

Many thanks for taking the time to review our hotel on Tripadvisor; this is highly appreciated by all of us here in Sun Beach.

We are very pleased to read that you had a lovely holiday in our resort and would like to thank you for the positive comments made.

Thank you also for highlighting some of the activities offered in the resort; Sun Beach indeed features a wide selection of activities and facilities to cater for all age groups and feel very happy to see this acknowledged in your review.

We are also delighted to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed the hotel’s cuisine and would like to assure you that your rewarding comments will be relayed to all employees involved.

Please note that we receive very few and isolated complains in regards to aircraft noise; all hotel rooms are equipped with sound proof windows that fully eliminate any noise but as you can appreciate this an external factor that the hotel can do very little apart from allocating you on a quieter part of the complex and very much hope that noise did not prove to be a great inconvenience during your stay.

We are also genuinely sorry for the inconvenience experienced with our laundry service; the latter is outsourced to a third party company with the hotel offering this as a value added service to its guests. While we never had an issue with this service in the past, there has been an unfortunate incident during the dates of your stay with our external partner ending up hospitalized as mentioned in a previous review. We wish to apologize if your clothes were damaged and wish that this was brought to our attention whilst in the resort so as to give us the chance to rectify the issue. We hope that you can appreciate that this was an unfortunate and isolated event and can only apologize again for any damage caused.

Once again thank you for the feedback provided and very much hope to have the opportunity to welcome you again in our resort in the not so distant future.

Best Regards,

We had a week here in one of the self-catering apartments. Our rooms were large and well furnished with a good balcony. The rooms were cleaned every day and we were given fresh towels. The facilities are pretty good with two large and pleasant pools. The location is terrific. You can stroll onto the beach and swim in the beautiful Aegean Sea or just look across to Turkey. You can walk out to find the many bars and restaurants in the town. Excellent facilities for children. We did not eat in the restaurant so cannot comment on that. On the day we left we had a late flight so they provided a room where we could change and shower in the afternoon - much appreciated.
