If you're looking for a 'fun in the sun,' right on the beach, drinking all hours and kids clubs type of set up then this place is not for you.
If, like us, you want somewhere totally peaceful, miles from the noisy resorts, surrounded by lemon trees and olive groves and excellently located to explore the many many historical and beautiful places on the island of Rhodes, then you cant go far wrong.
The younger girl in the family, who mostly looked after us, was super helpful, friendly and very easy going. The pool and bar area is gorgeous. (Give the tortoiseshell cat who hangs out by the pool a pet from me :-) The rooms were cleaned regularly and were spotless and simple. They are modern and sealed so get very hot but a fan can be hired form only 2 Euro per day or upgrade to AC.
Rhodes was far more than I expected. Rhodians are extremely friendly. The island has so much history and natural beauty to see. Don't miss ancient Kameiros, an ancient preserved town only a few km from Hotel Alkmini, Rhodes old town, and Rhodes acropolis, valley of the butterflies and Lindos (Lindos only if you can tolerate the tour groups, generic shops of tatt and depressed overworked donkeys carrying fat sunburnt tourists up the hill.)
The beaches are far better on the other side of the island and less windy, with excellent snorkelling (try kalithea) so no excuses for hanging around the hotel, gorgeous and relaxing as it is!
