Definitely 1 point to this hotel! Rhodos island is great, but the thing that disturbed this wonderful vacation was this hotel. For sure not 4 star hotel! I heard so many people complaining about this hotel around the pool. Don't recommend to go there. First, we were promised to have two separate beds, but we had one bed. We went...

Plenty of poolside sunbeds as end of...

We spent 8 days (7 nights) / all incusive package. They are represent themselves as a 4* category hotel, but Im not sure if 2* is not better for this property. ROOM: We came during the night so we went directly sleep. In the morning started complications, f.e.: bathtube, toilet and washbasin were leaking ... Very, but very poor cleanliness....

The hot food was just warm,not much variety. The only desert every day for lunch and evening was water melon. There was no evening entertainment just music and a...

My husband and I stayed here for our Honeymoon. We booked it as a 5 star all inclusive holiday with Thomas Cook. We arrived at night time to a filthy room, rust covered furniture, gaffer tape around the door, a broken lamp at an askew angle. Next day we went down to complain, we were given another room, this was...
