Hill top location, a bit of a walk up/ down hill, room was upgrades to a private pool. Hotel clean, staff working so hard, restaurants and bars with massive que. food was much the same every day and night.. Probably 3 star food for a 5 star hotel. The saving grace was the fantastic weather.

The room was big, clean, and comfortable with a view to the sea and to the swimming pools. The hotel is located right next to the sea, so it is only a few minutes walk from there. the food is great, and the crew is even better.

Very nice hotel with large rooms, excellent food, friendly and helpful Staff and great taxi service into Rhodes. The Italian Restuarant is a highlight. Staff at the pool bar work hard all day and always manage a smile. Overall we had a great time at this hotel.

Don't believe the people who didn't enjoy their experience; they clearly do not know what they want from a holiday. Yes, the hotel is understaffed - but smile, wait a couple of minutes, relax, unwind, enjoy what you have paid for - a holiday on a fabulous Greek island where the pace is slower than in the UK. The food...
