Just returned from a two week stay. Before travelling I was a bit concerned by the negative reviews. The hotel is lovely, the only let downs being the location, the smell at the front and the lack of entertainment. We arrived in the early hours and were greeted with a glass of orange juice and a ham and cheese roll. Check in was quick and we were shown to our room in the new block. Quite a trek at 3.00 am in the morning! The room itself was modern, spacious and spotlessly clean. We had a large balcony with a sea view. The room was cleaned daily and towels and sheets changed whenever we required them to be. The food was first class. Travelled with two fussy teens and they enjoyed each meal. Such a variety to select from each time we entered the dining room. The standard of alcoholic drinks available as part of the all inclusive was disappointing throughout the hotel. This I understand to be the case generally on all inclusive holidays. I was a bit concerned that cocktails would be poured from a carton but they were prepared as they were ordered. The hotel has two swimming pools, The one by the new block being more family orientated and where the animation team spent most of their time I assume. We based ourselves at the swimming pool in front of the hotel. The only time I saw the animation team was when they appeared to do yoga, darts and table tennis. They appeared to lack in personality and at no time did they encourage anyone to participate in any activities. It would of been nice to have some pool activities at this pool. The list of daily activities were also not clearly visible. I found it two days before we were due to leave! The staff were friendly and helpful. Always polite and never rude. I can only assume that reviews where the staff were suppose to be rude were made by people who were not happy with the hotel and in a negative frame of mind themselves. The beach was a short walk from the hotel and sun beds were €4.00 euros a day, although any drinks had to be carried from the bar at the swimming pool at the front of the hotel. The resort had two other bars although one of these was also a hotel. The Azzure bar and restaurant was very good. We ate here on one occasion and went there for drinks on a couple of other evenings. The food was amazing. We also spent a day at the nearby Ktima bar and restaurant. This has an infinity pool. Sun beds here are €5.00 euros a day. You would need to get a bus or taxi as there is only the main road from the hotel. Although the Azzure bar and Ktima aren't cheap, I would highly recommend. One thing I would advise is do not pay for 2 weeks Wi-Fi. This is $50.00 per device and not per room. There is a weekly charge and 1 or 3 day charges. I would recommend the 1 or 3 charges! Due to the hotels location and lack of activities, entertainment we did travel into Lindos on quite a few occasions. This is $12.00 euros for a taxi from the hotel and $9.00 euros back. It worked out quite expensive but when there is nothing to do in the resort, then it was money well spent. I would recommend this hotel if you like a quiet and peaceful location and are not bothered by the lack of entertainment.
