“Great reception, great apartment, great food...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2011

Stayed the last week in May and although the weather was unseasonably poor we still had a wonderful time. The apartments are newly refurbished and have everything you need from satellite TV to hairdryer. There are a few eateries nearby but none really match the quality and value for money in the apartments' own restaurant. Even the beer is cheaper than in the bars on the strip. Highly recommended.

My family of 5 have just returned from a 7 night (package) stay at the Paleos Apartments that we booked through Thomas Cook. It has been one of the best holidays I have had in quite a while. The family/owners are very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. They seem to cater mostly for families and couples and there were no noisy groups.

We were in Room 12 which had recently been refurbished and was beautiful and spacious. It consisted of a large bedroom with a double bed and a kitchen/diner/living room with sofa bed and a child’s bed that was put into the room for us. There was room service (cleaning) every couple of days with clean towels. Everywhere was very clean and bright and the rental prices were very reasonable. Our apartment had a double ceramic hob and kettle (no oven). The under-bench fridge had a freezer compartment big enough for a carrier bag full of frozen food. There was a lovely bathroom with a hair drier. Expect to pay 40 euros a week (75 for two weeks) to have the air conditioning switched on. This is only about £5 a day which combined with the very reasonable rental rate seems fine.

We did not experience any problems walking to the town centre along the main road outside; for about 100m there was no pavement but there were 2 metres of tarmac and a white line between the vehicles and the pedestrians. There are bus stops outside the complex and there is a nice bakery and supermarket within 8 minutes’ walk. The restaurant at the Paleos Apartments served very tasty food that was enjoyed by all my family. Eating out in Rhodes is not too expensive, about 7-10 euros for a main course and 2-3 euros for most drinks. If you are self-catering you will need to budget generously because the supermarket prices of food are about double the prices in the UK.

Rhodes is a wonderful great place to visit (especially for its history and beaches) and I can wholeheartedly recommend the Paleos Apartments as a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool.

This is the second time I have been to Paleos and was not disappointed. As many visitors have said before the family make every effort to ensure your stay is enjoyable and nothing is too much trouble...if you ask!! The food is always very good and spent many hours in the bar chatting with Ghiannis (Yanni!!) over the 2 weeks and had some good laughs too. The place was very busy over the 2nd week as it was school holidays at home, but the family coped very well with the rush and serving times etc never suffered because of the large numbers of people on site.
The pool bar area had been extended since my last visit and has made a vast improvement on being able to sit in the shade while enjoying a beer ( or three!!). Comments regarding the noise level of the road outside should be taken while a pince of salt...yes, its a busy road and care may be needed when crossing sometimes but the pool area etc faces away from the road and it just becomes background noise.
I had the opportunity to help the family with a small over-booking issue part way through my holiday and offered to change rooms to one in an annex around 400 yards away from the main apartments. These apartments are not normally advertised which is a shame as they were very quiet and the surrounding scenery is fantastic, set in grounds with olive trees and wine vines. There is no pool etc but to walk back to Paleos to use the pool, bar, restaurant etc was a five minute walk, so if you get the chance to stay there, I strongly recommend it, especially if you are out for peace and quiet. i will definitely be going back and would recommend the Paleos to anyone, regardless of whether yours is a solo, couple or family holiday.

What a welcoming family run haven this is. The room was much larger than anticipated and was spotlessly clean , The service is excellent and the food is superbly made under the watchfull eye of Mamma Paleos. It s the little touches that make the difference , freshly made orange cake on the house with your breakfast an Mamma's potatoes to name but two. Any rowdyness is not accepted and this makes it ideal for couples or families .
Bus to Rhodes town is 2.6 euro and is 10 minutes
there are several resturants nearby , supermarket 200 metres, beach 500 metres, ideal location to explore Rhodes

So looking at the other reviews we were so excited about our holiday here... We got there and our room was not ready, they were still putting the furniture in there! And kept coming back for two days to put more things in or put the curtains up etc. The room was nice, it was clean. But so damp, our beds felt actually wet, the windows were dripping, they only changed our towels twice in our ten day stay.

The location is awful, walking along the main road, into town which was about a 15 min walk or a cab ride.

The staff seemed like they would have liked us had we been a family and had children with us. In fact they made us feel rather unwelcome and like we were being rude by asking for towels etc.

My friend ordered salad from their restaurant and they just pointed at the dressings so se could donut herself and then half the salad was missing!!

Over all, not keen on Rhodes at all and wouldn't go back again. we go away every month and don't expect the hotels to be "uk" standard but just to feel welcome would have been nice!

We stayed here from the 26th of April 2011 for five nights. The apartment was much more spacious than expected, the pictures do not do Paleos justice at all. Large bedroom, reasonable bathroom and kitchen. Also balcony to eat outside. Location is about a 10 to 15 minute walk from the beach and shops but car hire is available at reception. Staff were very friendly and helpful, we were calling them by their first name by the second day. Prices are reasonable and locals are multilingual. Free wifi access too!
Would defiantly visit again in the future! =D

A family friendly hotel where Giannis, Maria, Georgia and Mike cant do enough for you, The hotel is safe foor kids to run around and shuttle back and forth to the room whilst you can sit by the pool and keep an eye on them. The rooms are bright, airy and large enough to really use as a self catering base. Hire a car from reception and youu can really see the island. The food is good and the company warm. We had a great time.

Room Tip: Bring a jumper early in the season!
