I have just returned from a week at Doreta Beach hotel. It was the first hotel with my boyfriend and I was a bit worried after reading all the reviews but it seems some people just can't be pleased!
The hotel is not a 5 star resort but I didn't think it was going to be the price was good and we had reasonable food and drink, room was basic but very clean. The overall hotel was very clean. Pool was fab and so lovely having the sea so close with plenty of sunbeds!
I am quite a fussy eater but always managed to find something I liked at meal times it does get quite repetitive but there are some lovely bars/restaurants around if you fancy just one night out. The tavern and a la carte restaurant are ok and a nice change. The bars around the hotel are great all the staff were friendly and the cocktails were great! Some of the other hotel guests can be quite rude and no one seems to have manors but you get used to that after the first few days!!
Room is very basic but also very clean, we paid for a garden view and didn't get it so we requested a garden view had to wait till the next day and the receptionist sorted it out. There seem to be quite a few complaints about the rooms but if you don't ask you won't get. The receptionist was very accommodating even thought they seemed to get shouted at all day long!
If you want a pool side sunbed make sure you get up early my boyfriend got up at 6am then went back to bed but that's only as we didn't want to sunbathe on the beach and wanted a good spot!
The bus to Rhodes is great 2.80euros each way and tickets can be purchased from the supermarket they are really regular but do get very busy. Rhodes town is beautiful there isn't much to do around the hotel so well worth a trip into the town.
All in all it was a lovely relaxing holiday and we were on a budget so we didn't expect it to be the ritz!!!
