Our welcome from the hotel owners son Nikos was genuine and warm despite arriving at 0400. As previously mentioned by reviewers the bathrooms are not the roomiest (hard to get past the sink) but if you can overlook that, its basic and clean set in the sleepy location of Lothiarika (between livelier Pefkos and beautiful 'local' Lardos where you may catch a Greek Wedding). Breakfast is adequate but supermarket opposite sells everything if you don't like bread and ham/cheese or cocoa pops! The pool is excellent and its a short walk to a pebble beach. There are a few good tavernas within easy walking distance (Perikles is a favourite of ours) or catch bus or taxi to Lardos (10 mins) or Pefkos 15 mins ...we liked Valentinas in Lardos. The local buses are great if not always to timetable. Bus stop right outside hotel. 5 Euros to Rhodes Town (90mins) well worth it to walk around the old town. Lindos with donkey ride to the Acropolis is a must (and the donkeys are in excellent condition) - look out for Costa - our favourite donkey man. Minigolf is a 15 min walk from the hotel and great fun for an evening - for less than 20 euros 2 people can play every day of their holiday. Shady and quiet at 6pm - busier later. Hiring a self drive boat from Pefkos (fishing rods and bait optional) also a great adventure! Bus to Prasonisi less frequent and apparantly well worth it but we ran out of time! This hotel suited us down to the ground - different nationalities stay there, and everyone very friendly. A perfect holiday.
