“Great stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Arrived back in the UK after a wonderful stay at the Olive Garden. The air conditioned rooms were nice with lovely views. The staff were particularly helpful especially Anastasia who ran the bar by th pool ( goes without saying really as this was where I spent most of the time)! There was a good choice of food at meal times and all inclusive meant help yourself to drinks. Lardos village was less than 5 minutes in a taxi, indeed you could walk. There were several tavernas restaurants and bars in this quaint little village and again, everyone we met were particularly friendly. The kids loved their holiday and we would definitely go back

Great hotel with amazing staff. This is two hotels combined and totally refurbished this year so ignore anything before 2013. There is a brand new reception and dinning room at the front and rooms are located in one or the other hotel buildings. Each has their own pool and pool bar. Food and drinks are top quality. Staff cannot do enough for you and always have a smile. Beach is just a short walk along the road. Very quite at night and during most of the day the two pools are not used so much as most people go to the beach. Did not see any towels on sun beds at 6 in the morning! Overall very nice holiday and would go back and recommend to a friend.

Room Tip: All are good

Me and my mum came on a relaxing holiday to Rhodes and stayed at the Olive Garden Hotel. We did not have a travel rep, but from the moment we stepped into the hotel we were looked after,this included the lovely and helpful reception staff, the polite waiters and bar staff, and the nice spa staff. The food here was amazing, full of a wide range of food, which changed slightly everyday, and of which we always looked forward to, and for each of the meals you were able to get some sort of desert is you wanted to. The hotel was a lot nicer than we were expecting; the beds were made everyday and given new towels, the lobby area was modern and relaxing, the resurant looked out on amazing views, the gardens were full of exotic flowers and fruit trees and the spa was lovely, of which we went to the jacuzzi and sauna 3 times and had 2 massages and mud therapy while we were here. Overall this hotel made the holiday perfect!

Room Tip: All the rooms come with a small fridge and a hairdryer. Dont worry about rushing to get a dessert be...

We visited Olive Garden in June with our family. This is a beautiful hotel with gorgeous view of the hills and the sea. The hotel has been recently renovated by the new management. The rooms are very tastefully done with all the basic amenities. Though the hotel is a 3-star property, it has the amenities of a 5-start including a spa, gymnasium, tennis court, kid’s playground, night club, mini-market and 2 swimming pools. The beaches and quaint villages like Lardos and Lindos are a stone’s throw away.

We loved the food at the hotel! They have a buffet service for lunch and dinner which has a new menu daily. You can expect sumptuous greek food, fresh salads and excellent service. There was also a live counter with waffles and eggs in the morning and pasta in the evening.
We spent a lot of time by the pool and the cute pool bar deserves a special mention. The cocktails were great and the lady attendant was very nice and cheerful.

A huge thanks to the management and friendly staff for making our stay so memorable. Olive Garden is truly a 5-star hotel at a 3-star price. We cant wait to be back!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool in the new wing. They are a bit more pricey but well worth it...

Me and my partner have just arrived back from a lovely 10 days at this hotel, we have been to this hotel 2 years ago which we really enjoyed then, and was extremely happy when we returned 2 weeks ago. The hotel has had several works done to it, by moving the restaurant upstairs and also own another hotel at the back of the original where now it is a bigger hotel with 2 pools which is good as you have a choice of both, it also has a supermarket and gym, sauna etc, so theres plenty of things to do and can buy essentials from the supermarket which is great. We went with the all inclusive package and had breakfast, lunch and dinner with snacks through the day and your local drinks and cocktails also included. The food was delicious and always a good variety to suit everyone, variety of salad, veg, different meats, and a different potato each night and many other things. Breakfast now has a station where a chef is making waffles to order with chocolate, honey etc, and also omelettes with whichever fillings you want which I loved. The beach is just a short walk down the road and was lovely to go and see, me and and my partner rented a moped at the hotel and explored a few other places not far from the hotel. All the rooms were very clean, and all the members of the staff were delightful always helpful and extremely polite, so happy we returned to this hotel and we shall definitely be returning again :)

Spent 4 nights at The Olive Garden hotel with my daughters (aged 10 and 4). We took the family room, which was great as we had 2 queen sized beds. The room was lovely, with a view of the pool and a little balcony as well. The hotel has been recently refurbished and the room was very tastefully done. Air conditioning was provided as well. The hotel staff was very courteous and the room was cleaned on time every day.
We went for the all inclusive package which included all meals. There was a lovely Buffett service for all the meals, with a great variety of salads , pasta, main course and desserts. Drinks were also included - which was great.
The pool was a lovely size with an adjoining baby pool. The kids got free ice cream after 3:30pm from the poolside cafe/bar - again all the drinks were included in the package. There was a convenience store on the property itself, which was great as I could stock up on essentials without having to leave the hotel. The beach was just a short walk away; which was another added bonus. The hotel had a lovely play area for the kids as well.
The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. Had the best Frappes at the hotel bar. I would definately recommend trying them. The hotel also has a Gym and a Spa. Overall, I had a great experience - will definately be going back again :-))
