Hotel Solemar
Ranked #80 of 126 Hotels in Rhodes Town
Reviewed 17 August 2017 via mobile

We stayed in the solemar hotel in July 2017. We read the reviews and weren't expecting much. This was a last minute booking and for the price we paid we felt it was worth it.
We had a fab holiday, the hotel is a 3 star and the rooms were clean and adequate.
Plenty of food, yes some food was repeated on a daily basis but there was a good choice.
Plenty of nice salad and lovely desserts too.
Staff very nice. Except the dark haired girl around the pool who couldn't smile, and liked to pour drinks away on the grass and pavement!
There isn't much entertainment on a night.
We had a sea view and the road in front was extremely busy all times of the day as this is the road from the airport to Rhodes town.
You pay €5 euros a day for air con which you do need. Or €30 euros for a week.
For the all inclusive the drinks were a let down. Only 2 cocktails on offer.
We met some fab families while we were there.
The beach is 5-10 mins walk away but it's very pebbley.
Bus stop right outside the hotel and regular service to Rhodes town.

We are a family of 5 from 2 boys 8 & 13 and 3 adults ,We arrived around midnight as the flight was delayed so we have missed last orders , We was given our room numbers and told which floor we was on , the safe is in the lobby by receptions so we didn't bother getting one in the end ,the lift is quiet small so we put nannie in the life with the bags and took the stairs didn't mind as only on floor 2 , dropped the bags off and went out for food and drinks got back to the hotel about 2am , the rooms are very basic, we pushed 3 beds together as my 8year old fell out on the 1st night , the bed are not comfy at all,there is a mini fridge and hair dryer in the room, the bathrooms are very small very slippery so I found out when I ending up on my back side , there is not much room on the balcony for the rooms on the side of the hotel just enough to fit a chair , we didn't bother with the air con as there was enough wind coming in with the doors open ,

Pool area,
Don't leave your towels out before 9am in the morning as they put the water sprinklers on ending up with wet towels we left our sarongs out ,the pool is 3 meters deep one end and 2 the other but there is 2 side pools as well for the little ones, there is showers by the pool ,also a games room , when we was there the animations girl Shannon was the best she made every one so welcome and was a so great with the kids we all loved her but sadly she was moved to a bigger hotel the end of the 1st week we was there and 2 new welsh girls came they got a lot to learn about kids and that they are there to do a job not site with the guest having a fag . there is a mummy cat with her babys there they where no bother , the dog on the other hand is a young one and wants to play she really shouldn't be by the pool side where there Is kids about .

Food
In the day you mostly get pizza ,chips ,there is always ice cream help your self and the drinks ,
the dinner hall is not that big always some where to sit and plenty of food to pick from there is always 2 meats we have lamb,chicken,beef,pork,fish pasta,big salad bar, bread,soup veg,chips we never went hungry they lady in the didn't hall is so lovely to have a chat with, the man with the glasses cleaning the table on the other hand never smiles and always go a audited about him .

Evening
The evening entertainment well if you are hopping for that this is the wrong hotel for you , it is very basic the kids disco is about 4 songs nothing more to say on this .
the hotel ground as clean and tidy and the staff do there best the week we was there I think we had a good mix for kids that all got on and adults a holiday is what you make it I have herd the hotel has been bought out and when I closes after this summer it will be under going a vamp things x they keep the staff .

My partner and I, really enjoyed our stay at Solemar hotel. To start of the location is great, it's around 5 min walking distance from the nearest beach. The airport is also not far from the hotel. Solamer has very friendly, and helpful staff. They are always around if you need anything. Secondly, we've really enjoyed all the meals, it was always platy of choice.
Solemar is not the most modern hotel that we ever been to, however you will get what you pay form. It is definitely enjoyable place and I would recommend it.

We had 10 days here recently, after reading the reviews I wasn't expecting anything great. The hotel needs a serious makeover and several repairs. During our holiday, we learnt the hotel has been recently purchased by the company that owns the Oceanis Hotel down the road. It is closing on 13th October and undergoing a big refurbishment ready to open next year. If this is the case, it's great news. The place is in a great location and has bags of potential. Thus said, our stay wasn't great. Food was bad, no choice and pretty tasteless. The drinks were terrible, beer was ok but the soft drinks from the machine were either flat or just came out as plain soda water. Staff were not the most accommodating or helpful, animation team of two girls was awful, no effort at all. We went out every evening as it was so boring there. Rooms weren't great, our shower was the size of a postage stamp and flooded the floor every time we used it. Had to pay for air con and wi fi, though I did hear one family being given free air con when they checked in. Pool was very murky looking throughout our stay and maintainance guys were constantly working on it. Yes there were stray cats, kittens and dogs around the place, but this is to be expected, they're everywhere. We too had to ask for towels for the room, but the maid was lovely, doing her best when she had a lot of rooms to clean. Snack bar was terrible, cups smelt of bleach and the food was in short supply. Coffee was ok from the machine. Reception staff were helpful and informative. This is our honest opinion of the hotel, we have stayed in a few around Rhodes. Hopefully once refurbished, this place will do well in the future.
