“absolutly Amazing”
Reviewed August 6, 2011

We arrived a day early at 9Am asking for a room and these very lovely people just gave us a cup of coffe while they went and sorted a room for us. What can i say just like a true family even though they had never met us before. This is a place to stay if you want to feel at home, secure and safe. They really truelly know the meaning of being a host.There is nothing too great for them if you need it they will provide it. there is nothing that is too much trouble for them. This was a refreshing change and took us back to how holidays should be.Rooms are basic but enough when you are out all day enjoying the weather. Even if you decide to spend all day in the resort enjoying the very clean pool yuo are garenteed a laugh and a very welcome feel. Thanks guys it was awsome!!!!!

Had a great 2 week holiday with kostas Irene & family we went to the sunlight on recomendation from family and were not dissapointed. we had rooms on the ground floor which yes were very small but when you r on holiday you dont spend much time in the room apart from sleeping and showering so it suited us fine as it was clean and it was very peacefull sitting on the terrace soaking up the sun .George is on the bar most nights and we had a good laugh with him hes very friendly as were the other 2 sons Lucas & theos .The family couldnt do enough for us when my aunt took ill and was taken to hospital they went out of their way to help Lucas taking the family in his car to the hospital and Irene making lovely healthy soups to be taken up to her all in all we had a great stay and will definatly be going back. Tholos itself isnt really a busy place so if you r looking for nightclubs & noisey bars then its not for you billys is a nice place to eat and you must try the taverna up the hill both serve great food alovely relaxing holiday with a good laugh at night in the sunlight with George canny beat it .

Room Tip: book the room for 3 people

Sunlight Studios has by far been -the- most warming and welcoming holiday experience I've had my entire life of travelling.
I've visited Florida, Ibiza, Portugal, Corfu, Amsterdam. Many, many hotels, many faces. Yet I've never been to a hotel as hospitable as this one.

My first trip was back in 2005 where we met the family for the First time around 4am in the morning. Kostas, George and Loukas. They waited up for us to arrive and offered us drinks to wake us up from the long flight.

Ever since that year, we've been going back. I visited July 2011 for 1 week and as soon as I came home, I started planing next years trip for August 2012.
The rooms are fantastic, and very spacious if you book the top floor.

And the food is jaw-dropping. We did venture over the island including Rhodes town centre, and local high quality restaurants but none of that food was any where as nice as Irene's home made cooking!
If you're visiting Greece, or looking for a nice place to stay with Family / Friends / even by yourself then book with Sunlight! I come home making tons of new friends every year. Be sure to go to Greek Night too... dancing, drinking, singing and meeting the entire family!

Looking forward to next year and many more!

A warm, family environment, extremely welcoming and a real customer focus which made our time here simply, fantastic! A absolute must if you want a real Greek experience which caters for all tastes. Value for money is excellent, with Kostas and Irene's (the owners) amazing cooking makes this a must when staying in Rhodes!

Bus links are regular (but on greek time) and amazing deals are to be had on hiring of all types of vehicles from two wheels or more! Good access to local produce and shops etc, a must is to walk up the hill and experience the restaurant in the road!

We stayed at Sunlight appts for 10 nights from22nd June and had a great holiday. Kostas, Irene, George and Loukas made us welcome from the start. Free shot on arrival "Yammas" and was also able to upgrade to a larger room the following day. It was my husband's birthday on the day we arrived and George made him a 'special' cocktail to celebrate - free of charge. The bigger room was comfortable and spacious and towels, sheets and room cleaned 3 times during our stay. Kostas and his family were very friendly and Irene's cooking was second to none. All food was freshly made - allotment at the back growing veg, herbs etc. Pool and bar area very clean. George is an excellent bar man and entertains everyone with his extensive internet collection - songs, clips etc. Loved his English, alas he 'divorced' me on my last day - getting ready for his next wife the following week!!!
Sunlight appts are situated in a quiet area of Rhodes but the bus stop into Rhodes town is just down the lane.
Tholos is very quiet - not many bars and restaurants - many closed due to the economy but the ones that are open make you welcome and the food is good.
If you are looking for a relaxing, friendly, quiet holiday look no further than these appts.

Room Tip: The appts for 3 people (upper floor) are more spacious than the ground floor. Extra cost for these b...

Was delayed for 12 hours from Gatwick, but hey, this was not a problem for George, he was there waiting for us at 3am....made us feel really welcome, had a few and more drinks with us 'till we saw the sun rise at 5.45am. The large aparments are really big and airey, you do need to ask for these apartments on booking, you can also have A/C which is payable but highly recommended. Good size pool. Costas, Irene, George and his brother Lucas are a wonderful family, they all make you feel welcome, the food that Irene serves is great. You must join in on the Greek nights, it is such good fun, and the food is scumpcious. You must also join in with the dancing and the dancing on the bar......which is a tradition at the Sunlight studios.

Theologos itself is very very quite, the beach is not much to write home about, there are of course small shops for your basics, There is also a wonderful pastry shop with great icecreams too. you must visit 'Bella Vista' on the way to the town, what a wonderful traditional Greek restuarant, you must try the courgette balls with garlic bread, (oooooh it's to die for) with a jug of wine. Has a really relaxing time as well as fun too.

Room Tip: Always ask for the large apartments, pay the extra it's worth it
