The main strength of this hotel are the staff - they are really attentive and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The food is ok - nothing special but caters for all tastes. We had some rather strange lunch combinations - but tea was mostly lovely and we definitely didn't starve.
The pools and grounds are very well kept and the rooms are spotless. The bedding and towels are changed through the week and it was nice to walk in to a bottle of water and wine and some fruit on arrival. I am not convinced about the hot towels and silly little sandwiches in reception when you first arrive but I can see what they are trying to achieve.
I would strongly recommend hiring a car - the resort is not the best (stony beach and lots of abandoned shops) but other areas of the island are well worth visiting. We used Rodos cars - they have an office just up the road from the hotel - and they are very reasonably priced (much cheaper than Avis which Thomas Cook use).
Wifi was interesting - wired in the room (10 euro deposit for the cable) and wireless in reception and round the pool. It cost 30 euro for 24 hours - you have to log out each time you have finished and the 24 hours stretches through the week. It worked for emails and FB so I can't complain.
I know we went end of season but the hotel entertainment was dire. We found a Saudi tv channel which screened English language films and mostly watched that in the evenings with a bottle of wine! The adverts were funny!
The all inclusive hours are a bit odd as well - you can't get a coffee at the bar before 10am - you can't get a drink at the bar after 11pm - but the bar is open if you want to pay! I think the management need to re-think this policy as it could cause resentment which would be a pity because otherwise the hotel is really good.
All in all a lovely week away. It was very relaxing and we were well looked after by very well trained and attentive staff :)
