Stayed at the Doreta with my Husband and 2 Children plus our Friends with their 2 Children. Having already done our research, we had pre-booked the Superior Rooms but were still a little worried and unsure of what to expect after reading previous reviews. We arrived at 11.15 in the evening and were met by a male receptionist who was by no means grumpy but neither was he extremely friendly. Our rooms were on the 3rd Floor. They were quite small - the King Sized Bed takes up much of the room and when you are squeezing in 2 other beds it can become quite cramped, but hey who spends all their time in the room. They were cleaned every day and sheets changed every day. The Bathroom was quite spacious and was also clean. My Husband and my Friend took it in turns to get up in the morning to ensure that we had sunbeds. If you were down later than 7.30am you had very little chance of getting one. The pool is quite deep but there are a couple of areas where you can stand. Our children played fine in the main pool but if you are worried there is a smaller shallow children's pool. The animations team work hard throughout the day and there are various sporting activities for you to participate in if you wish. I do however have to agree that the evening entertainment is quite bad and the room where it is carried out is very hot. Best place in the evening is at the beach bar where you can watch the children play and be cooled by the lovely breeze. The service at the bars was quite quick and the drinks were fine. Alcoholic Drinks were definitely not watered down and quite a good choice of Fizzy Soft Drinks. However the fruit juices were definitlely watered down and could be quite tasteless. On to the food - this was ok. Can't say it was brilliant but it wasn't horrible either. Everyone managed to find something to eat and as previous reviews state the desserts were lovely. My main gripe would be that only 1 warm vegetable was served at mealtimes and there wasn't enough labeling above each dish to tell you what was being served, but there were plenty salad choices to choose from. Also be careful in the Dining Room as the floor can be very slippy. On a couple of evenings we went out to Dundee's Bar to watch the Singer. Had a lovely meal at Mike's Bar and also went to Tholos Village and had a lovely more traditional Greek meal at a little Taverna called "Drossier". The Hotel is defintely not 4/5 Star but based on our experience would class it as 3. All in all we had a lovely holiday with our Friends and had no major gripes or concerns. Would I recommend this Hotel? Yes to anyone who wants a fairly cheap, relaxing holiday in the sun with their children. Definitely not to people who are expecting 4/5 Star Luxury because at the moment this Hotel does not deliver to that standard.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Doreta Hotel is a modern and comfortable beachfront resort and spa property, located on the west coast of Rhodes Island, near the pretty village of Tholos, at a distance of 17km from the centre of Rhodes town. It's an ideal choice for those who would like to combine the unrivalled views of the blue Aegean with cooling breeze of the west coast. Has a great atmosphere, not only providing an excellent environment for families, but equally suitable for all guests. The spacious lawns leading down to the tree-lined beach is a fun place for children to play carelessly and safely. Hotel is an excellent base for exploring the countless beauties of the island, but it also provides an opportunity for a relaxed walk around taverns, shops and the traditional village of Tholos. It is no wonder that one third of our guests repeat their visit to our hotel. ... more less
