We got a very good deal on this hotel for half board and had booked a standard unreferbished garden view room and were expecting one of the very tired rooms with carpet. However on arrival we were upgraded to a sea view room which had new wood floors which made such an amazing difference to the pictures. The bathroom and furniture were a little warn as expected but you could tell they were still high quality pieces despite their age. The room was perfect for watching the sunset behind Turkey each evening as it was such a lovely view. In the room there was a mini bar which was reasonably priced for drinks however charging €1.50 for a Lipton tea bag is a bit cheeky. The room also came with a safe however the hairdryer was poor so I’m glad we brought our own. Breakfast was overall very nice although very busy food seemed to be kept up with. There was a wide selection of choices from pancakes to bacon and eggs to salads and cold meats. Dinner was much more chaotic and the first night is quite confusing about who is getting drinks and how to pay etc but eventually got the hang of it. The food on the evening depended on the day but it was generally good quality the only issue we had was foods being mislabeled or simply described as ‘chicken with herbs’ or ‘vegetables with herbs’ wasn’t very helpful and it was a bit of guesswork. Also if you go later for dinner many of the options have already been taken away or ran out of which was slightly annoying. I would of liked free ice water like there was at breakfast as the drinks were very overpriced but I understand that the hotel can probably make much more money this way. The pool was really lovely however there does seem to be a lack of sun beds for the amount of rooms at the hotel and it was a struggle to get a bed after 10.30am. The main issue was that a lot of guests were reserving beds with hotel towels and then never coming down to use them. The lobby was beautiful however the lifts were a nightmare! Going up was fine even though it was a bit of a free for all but coming down for breakfast or the evenings was impossible. As we were on the 6th floor the lifts had already been full from collecting 17 down but 6 floors was still a long way down for us to walk several times a day. The staff were very pleasant and helpful however the front desk is also slightly chaotic. There is generally a queue system of people waiting for a free desk but occasionally some guests would just walk right up to the front and complete disregard everyone else. This is of course mainly due to a lot of rude guests in the hotel but it would be helped if staff told them to wait and didn’t just serve them as it made check out take double the time. The surrounding area is very nice and we went out every evening for drinks in local bars. We also ate out some nights to escape the dinner buffet and there are several choices of restaurants right outside the hotel. There is also a 12 euro taxi to old town which I highly recommend. The beach is very pebbly and not too kind to your feet however still a nice place to sit and rent a sunbed. One day we got a taxi to Lindos which was about 60 euro return which was definitely worth it to have a sand beach and traditional restaurants and markets. Overall we had a very nice stay and would come back again!
we have made a booking for 4 triple rooms three months in advance for our trip in June, and requested triple rooms and were charged a lot accordingly, once we arrived, we got small rooms that are set to be only doubles but they added us a roll up third wooden bed, which was old and broken and a very thin matress that could cause someones back ache. we tried to complain, upon arrival at 15.30 and after few hours we were asked to add an additional 480 euros to upgrade the rooms. as we refused, we asked them to change the beds, and we had to call the reception twice to remind them, and they didn't act friendly and were telling me wait until we find you another bed. they were putting two towels and shampoos although the rooms were triple. the tea and coffee in room were at a 2 euro charge each. bed sheets weren't changed all 6 days the hotel public areas were clean and the food was good though. but i dont recommend to choose the hotel in case you are spending a lot of budget on a hotel.
This hotel has amazing views, and is reasonably handy for the old town. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the pool area is lovely. But, why be so stingy with towels? Just because I'm a single traveller doesn't mean I don't want two big towels. Especially if I'm staying in a double room.
Half of the hotel rooms are renovated, I was unfortunately put in one of the older rooms which was not shown on the website. The VIP breakfast is very good other than the coffee. Had a few situations which were later resolved. Overall, it was a descent experience but I would book somewhere else next time.
Some of the rooms have been renovated, these are modern and well done, however, those which have not been renovated yet are tired but still comfortable. In some of the rooms there is a mini bar... Not unusual and a nespresso machine (chargeable). But the thing that could make and easy improvement is the coffee sachets, as in Nescafe are chargeable. Now in most hotels there is complimentary coffee and it makes a huge difference, it wouldn't take much for it to be the case here too. The waiting staff in the restaurant need a lesson in hospitality. Service with a smile was not on offer, and if you have food intolerances there is a lovely sign with images to code what's in food with a lovely note saying to ask waiting staff if you are particularly sensitive..... Yea, I didn't find them helpful in this, in fact it was easier to source food elsewhere. I'm told by my friend the good was good though (if you can eat it). All in all. This is a comfortable place, but not 5 stars.
My wife and I stayed at the Rodos Palace for three days in May. The room was well appointed and comfortable. If you like to walk you can walk to Rhodes in about 45 minutes. The walk along the promenade is quite beautiful and easy. The beach is a bit “stoney” but the water was very clear. As on all the Greek islands we visited, the water is not potable. The hotel does supply bottled water to drink. The restaurant had a great variety of buffet selections. There are ala cart restaurants but town Rhodes is interesting once you exit the shopping areas. Shoppers however are well looked after. The hotel grounds need a few repairs but nothing major that would lower the rating. Our only downer was the front desk staff when we left. They just forgot who they were serving they were so busy training people. Other than that, it’s a nice place to stay.
The hotel promotes itself as a 5 star hotel. But it is far away from reality. Rooms look old, need renovation. Selection of food is poor plus most of the time food was cold. I would the hotel is 3 star maximum. We are NOT recommending this hotel.
Upon arrival, they had no record of our booking, despite us having a booking record in our hand. We booked twins beds. There were none available. One person slept on a couch. Our room key failed every day. We were given wrong directions to a lounge 3 times. We were given a free 20 min spa voucher to use “for any treatment”. Turns out it was for massages only. Other rooms room service food sat outside in the sun rotting for days until we requested it be removed. On our last night, a man was in our kitchen at 9.30pm in the dark when we came back to go to bed. He was leaving water, wine, and fruit. In the dark! Scared the daylights out of us. Totally unbelievable. Basically this is a conference hotel. If you’re staying for a conference, it’s probably fine. Otherwise don’t bother.
We stayed almost one week and we had an amazing time! We had a lovely garden view room very clean and comfortable. The restaurants were good. You have definitely to visit the greek restaurant near the pool. The best part of the hotel is the lounge bar on 16th floor. Amazing view, a variety of drinks and all day buffet. Special thanks to Maria and Irena for the hospitality and the kidness. See you soon
I have stayed on the 18th floor the room was amazing, I think it was refurbished last year, the view of the sunset it was an speakable. The service was excellent the staff very polite and the food extraordinarily!! I totally recommend to everyone enjoy your holidays goodbye monotony!!!😄😄😁😁😁😎
