“Right on the Beach”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Ideal location right on the beach, but a good ten minute walk to centre. Apartments are a reasonable size, but not well equipped if you did want to cater for yourself. Linen was changed regularly and floor was cleaned every other day, but the sink, shower and toilet were not cleaned at all in our 14 day stay! Sun beds are dirty, but pool is clean. Poolside bar has a television, but you must be happy to watch what the owner wants to see!

Room Tip: Rooms 12-16 are right on the beach.

My wife and I have been resident in Rhodes for more than 4 years. Although we've never stayed at the Palm Bay we have dined at its restaurant many times. The setting is nice as it overlooks the poll and out to sea. There is a good selection of dishes to choose from and they are all very reasonably priced. I'm particularly fond of their seafood cocktail starter. I would recommend anyone staying at the complex to give the restaurant a try and even if you're not staying there you will be made welcome. Only negative thing about the restaurant is it has limited dining hours.

The adjoining bar area has a couple of televisions so you can catch the latest sporting events whether it be football, tennis or cricket.The owner and his staff are very friendly and strive to please.

We stayed at Palm Bay Studios early May. Upon reading the reviews from last year we were a little concerned, but to our delight the studios were fine, yes basic, but clean and the view from our patio was stunning. The staff could not have been more helpful all in all we had a very enjoyable relaxing holiday. Well done Palm Bay Hotel Studio's

We had a seaview room with a patio that overlooked the beach and I have to say that it was absolutely beautiful. The staff were lovely friendly people and everywhere was of a good standard. I can only imagine that the people who are not happy with this property are people who do not usually go to Greece. Apartments in Greece are always basic, that's the attraction for a lot of people. The warmth of the sun and the people are what draws us back. If you love Greece you will love it here.

Room Tip: Rooms 6 to 13 have the wonderful seaview

We stayed at Palm Bay Studios back in August, and thankfully the lovely weather saved our holiday. I travelled with my partner, my sister and her boyfriend and we are not the type of people to stay in posh, expensive hotels. We don't mind basic, but these studios were something else! Considering that we paid £800 per couple, I was expecting a lot better. The rooms were dirty, and filled with ants, due to holes in the walls being filled with tissue paper or toothpaste. Our rooms were rarely cleaned and towels only changed on the 5th day after we had to take them down to the bar! Thankfully we weren't planning to do any cooking in the room, as the facilities were just not up to it. My sister's appartment came equipped with one cup and two forks, nothing else! As I said, the weather saved our trip, we spent most of our time round by the pool (as we were planning to) and often ate at the Corali next door.
My advice would be to book somewhere else, there is no need to stay here when there are lots of other nice properties in Pefkos.

Stayed for a week arriving 10 October having paid very little for the holiday (Less than £250 each). Great location about 10m from a very quiet beach and about an easy 10 minute walk from Pefkos. Rooms were basic but spacious and clean with maid service changing the bedding once during our stay plus decent mattresses and pillows which you often don't get in Greek apartments. Staff were friendly and polite although, as we found nothing to complain about, there were never any tensions. Plenty of sunbeds and a clean pool which was deserted most of the time. (I was surprised at the comment about a dirty pool on 12 October as I'm a swimming teacher/ lifeguard and have also completed a pool maintenance course and it looked fine to me.) Not that much to do apart from enjoy the pool/ sea and soak up the sun but that's why we went at this time of the year although youngsters/ families might have had problems with the lack of activities. (It didn't help that our tour rep wasn't much use but that's not the hotel's fault.) Amazingly I didn't see a single mosquito at the hotel or around the pool and didn't get bitten once. (At least until we went to Rhodes for the evening.) Food in the restaurant was simple but good and reasonably priced.

If i had to find negatives it would be the minimal cooking facilities (We intended to eat out so not a problem.) and if you get a room facing the hotel next door, the music goes on until late, so ask for a room with a sea view because the uninterrupted view of the bay is worth having but also because it's quieter.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room.

Quiet location is the only saving grace. Described by Thomson rep as "quirky", it was scruffy, poorly maintained and grubby.

Dated, dirty, one look at the pool and restaurant decided we couldn't use either. Good shop but ancient fridges and old stock. Room dirty, cobwebs and ants, mould in shower. hard to tell if cleaner ever came in. We ruined our own towels trying to clean it hotel towels I wouldn't use to dry the dog To use the kettle, unplug the fridge. No point in even trying to cook.

Nice Beach just in front but littered with debris.

Could be so much better with some tlc, but sadly lacking.

No excuse for any of this, no matter what time of the year.

Trip Advisor pulled my first review and this 2nd one reads as very negative. Great beaches and great weather compensated.

Simple. Stay some where else.
