The hotel looked lovely on the Travel Republic web site as we trusted they would only advertise a hotel of 4 stars truthfully BUT they did not. The hotel was the last hotel on...

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...

Well....what can I say?........after reading some of the reviews here me and my husband agonised over whether to amend our booking but decided it surely can't be THAT bad and thought we would just go and make the most of it and maybe everyone on here was just being a bit nit picky and overly harsh....oh how wrong we were....

Our mission was to book a late September/early October medium priced quiet, relaxing, sunny poolside/beach style all inclusive holiday on Rhodes. Here is a factual evidence based account of our experience at ‘The Ocean Blue’ followed by an honest and personal opinion. Photos refer. Positives: Weather sunny and approx. 26-28 degrees most days. 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 savior of the holiday was the heat,sea and great island. The hotel was not 5 star. The swimming pools were the only pluses. The food was the same every day. 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...
