We had a great time Hotel was clean and great pool area along with the grounds keep nice. The entertainment crew were amazing The beach was directly behind the hotel a minute walk I’d say or less. I wasn’t to impressed with the food but got to say I am a bit fussy but speaking to the restaurant manager was like talking to a brick wall (just wasn’t interested) that’s why only 4 stars
Really nice place. I was surprised at the size of the rooms - and the television was massive (though only one five or six channels, and only BBC World News in English. However, you don't go on holiday to watch telly. The pool looked good, but we didn't use it personally. The beach is a 2 minute walk from the complex. Regular buses run to other parts of the island and we made use of a Rhodes town shuttle service for €16 each. This was a prompt minibus that took us to the centre of Rhodes itself and picked us up at 4pm. We arrived late on the first day and so missed the evening meal. We were surprised to find they'd prepared us a sandwich each, a couple of bottles of water and an apple which was a really nice touch [see photos]. The evening meal was basic but to be expected. The breakfast had a variety, though I didn't fancy touching their egg (Omelette or scrambled, I'm not sure, I really couldn't tell) My real problem was (most) of the staff in the restaurant though it probably wasn't there fault. I'll except the girl cleaning the glasses next to the drinks dispenser as she was fantastic, but the waiters were terrible. Please please please let me finish my meal in peace before you take my dirties. I swear I twas aking a last bit of something, fork in mouth when he was ready whip my plate away. God help you if you went to get something else, you're table would be lost if you were on your own. And then there was (Who I presume to be) the restaurant manager. He swanned around like he owned the place and did sod all to help anyone except to move things around on plates. You could hell how he was dressed he was the big "I am". Do some work you lazy man were my thoughts. Also, if you want to help out, dress in the uniform/clothing of the other waiters rather than in your "I'm better than them" clothing , or go and sit in your office, you're just in the way. He annoyed me as you can tell. I think I've had managers like him at work, and this probably explains my anger. The reception staff, cleaners/gardeners we met as well as the lady behind the drinks machine were all spot on - special mention to the lovely receptionist who bore a resemblance to Judith from the BBC's As Time Goes By. You were really helpful. All in all, I would recommend, but just remember you're about an hour away from Rhodes town.
The hotel is lovely the staff are very friendly and helpful we were only bed and breakfast which is a continental one with plenty of choice.The animation team work very hard and are good fun and try to involve everyone.The bar is run by a terrific guy who makes the beast gin and tonic.The pool area has plenty of sun beds and a really nice pool.It is a 30 minute walk in to Lardos which has nice bars and places to eat.
Me and my family have an absolutely fabulous holiday in Lardos bay hotel The accommodation was very clean and comfortable the staff being very friendly and helpful and the restaurant was always well stocked with excellent food the location is right at the side of the sea and plenty of entertainment throughout the day and evening would highly recommend
We stayed at the Lardos Bay Hotel for a couple of weeks in September. The room, and hotel generally, were fairly clean. The housekeepers did a good job. The bed wasn't amazingly comfortable but we got used to it. The shower situation wasn't good. Every morning there was no hot water. Every morning we informed the receptionist of the issue. Every morning she arranged for someone to fix it. Every. Damn. Morning. The food was bad. Breakfast was tinned fruit and fake Greek yogurt. Lunch and dinner were canteen cuisine, with fake Feta and fake Parmesan. The 'Italian Pasta Bar' was run by a Bulgarian chef who kept coughing into his hand and wiping it on his apron. Boot leather pork/chicken washed down with battery acid wine. Even the birds that flocked to the empty tables were hesitant to indulge. Whatever remained from the evening meal was reincarnated for lunch the next day. Cheap ingredients, incompetently cooked, and - to top if off - there wasn't even enough to go around!... A wave of guests would enter the canteen and strip the buffet tables like a swarm of locusts. Whoever didn't elbow their way in quick enough would then have to stand, empty plate in hand, waiting for the servers to replenish the tables. Overseeing yet somehow oblivious to it all, the knuckle-dragging restaurant 'manager' would pace up and down like an angry gorilla - his only joy in life being to intimidate the poor Ukrainian waiting staff, who, to be fair, did an excellent job under difficult circumstances. The evening entertainment was horrendous. The same annoying kids' songs played at full volume every night a.k.a the 'mini disco'; some weird variety performance by the hotel's own 'entertainment team' - the meaning of which has confounded us to this day. Twice we were treated to an old Greek man croaking out 70's disco hits to a cheesy midi backing track; on both occasions the lad from the bar was invited up as a 'special guest' to practice his hackneyed guitar riffs to an audience whose wits had clearly been dulled by boredom and cheap, sugary 'soft-inclusive' cola. (Yes, folks, to clarify: the all-inclusive is 'soft-inclusive' here. It doesn't include booze. It basically includes soft drinks and water but only when the restaurant & pool bars are open. Note also, you're not allowed to 'stock up' on water by filling bottles.) Verdict: Unlikely to return.
Hotel and staff great hotel rooms nice and clean maid service daily. Just a couple of complaints, 1 was evening entertainment was 90% in Russian really felt left out . The main was the hotel was advertised as all inclusive when we arrived we were told NO full board only we could have fizzy pop only except at evening meal you could have a beer or a wine only . The closest shops were 15 - 20mins walk away .
Perfect reception, nice manager the people which doing this job with love you can feel there very well If would be possible to start with not soft all inl but with all inclusive it will be appreciate.
Family rooms were nice but a bit shoddy. The also only had a shower and that isn't great for very young children! Food was absolutely terrible. Staff were very rude. The only staff member who was nice was the groundsman. We paid a lot of money to come here but found it horrendous and thankfully got moved to their sister hotel which was a lot nicer but the food was still the same. Such a shame where Rhodes is such a beautiful place.
hotel was nice and peaceful with a lovely pool food was a bit bland need more choices staff went out of they way to cater to your need especially christen and davide only problem was bathroom was small no lock on door shower leaks when you have one and there was only 4 channel on tv all new one with no chance to reporgarm any more channels
Spent 2 days in this awful outdated 1970's hotel. I moved hotels after 2 days as its was old an old fashioned hotel. Please be aware, this IS NOT A ALL-INCLUSIVE HOTEL. It's a full board hotel, so you will have to pay for alcoholic drinks and snacks. Daytime snacks looked like left over food. The food in the restaurant is diabolical, really disgusting food. (I would not feed my animals with it). The man who served pasta on the pasta server never spoke. The staff do not understand English at all, and look really miserable. The manager spends all lunch time watching the staff work. The only polite person we met was the lady in the hotel shop who was really helpful. The toilet in our room never had a door, it had a screen!!!! The air conditioning unit was so old and rusty we never used it looked dangerous to use. The only good things about this hotel were the pretty flowers, around the building and the pool area. The nearest bar is in Lardos village called "Memories Cocktail Bar" and the restaurant called "Rulers" which is fantastic, that's the best places we found. I'm being really honest, please don't waste your money staying there. If you want Rhodes, go to Pefkos, or Lindos, absolutely brilliant night life.
