Location and amenities

The location of the hotel is excellent on the beach which is mostly stones. The down side is the number of flights over the hotel to the adjacent main airport upto 30 per day starting at 6 am ( very noises) Food is passable nothing exotic ! Kids menus are ridiculous and only opens 7-8 pm The pools are well set out with plenty of shade .

The best thing about my stay was...

Location on the beach and good sea breeze . Lovely pools

Couples getaway

We arrived after 10pm was greeted by very friendly front of house staff as we had missed evening meal there was soup cold meats bread etc available at midnight ,our room was very pleasant unfortunately I found the bed was hard which I tend to find at most of the Greek hotels,we had a ground floor with sea views next to the quiet pool we spent very little time at the hotel basically because we like to see around the area ,but found the staff very friendly and helpful the food was plentiful and an extensive choice considering it was end of season. everywhere was spotless.I would highly recommend this hotel to a family due to its location and amenities a very enjoyable break .

Sunshine Rhodes Hotel

There are places, which you will never visit twice. There are good places, which enough to visit just once. Sunshine Rhodes Hotel I would visit plenty of times: friendly and attentive staff, good service and entertainment, fine soundproofed rooms, tasty food, the best location near the Aegean Sea. And a pretty girl who has welcomed me with word ‘Ryanair?’ :-). I will advise this hotel to everybody.

About the hotel

The rooms were so dirty they do not clean it properly. There were mosquitos were all other the place and bit us, cockroaches were in the rooms they did not do anything apart from spraying. If you want to get bitten by mosquitos I recommend you to come to this hotel. The reception staffs were so rude they didn't deal with the problems they were saying in 15 minutes someone will come in but there were no respond from them. There service was awful and really old, overall I do not recommend this hotel.

The best thing about my stay was...

Their animation was really good and friendly. The sea and the weather was brilliant.

Close to the beach. Customer service.

Nightmare

In this hotel, on Saturday 18 July 2015, I was robbed in my own room. I left my wallet on the table and went to sleep at 2am, the next morning when I woke up and check it was empty. The amount was significant, my short vacation was ruined. 15cm from the wallet in the table were also my GoPro and my watch, they didn´t stole them. The reason is very clear as Greek police explain to me hours later: the person who committed this crime was a hotel employee, they don´t take a risk of robbing things that can be identified. The hotel management made their presence in the room and did not assume any responsibility, the treatment was lousy and completely disrespectful. They said “You probably had a few drinks last night and don’t remember what have happened”. Unbelievable. Seeing the human nature and lack of professionalism of the management of the Sunshine Rhodes Hotel, I´m pretty sure I was not the first nor will be the last to pass through this horrible situation. If you don´t want to ruin your holidays think twice before booking a room there.

Poor food standards

Food (1/10): For us the food and eating experience is important. It couldn't be worse. Large and loud dining hall with poor organisation. People are running back and forth making it impossible to have a nice dining experience. Food is disgusting and poorly cooked. And if you want to eat the food, you will get about the same food for every meal. However, breakfast was okay thanks to some eatable pancakes. So if you think that food and dining experience is important for your stay, then stay away from this resort! Drinks (2/10): Expect plastic mugs with rapidly mixed drinks. If you want to enjoy high standard drinks and cocktails, you have to go elsewhere outside the pool area to some bars. For us, we found a bar nearby with excellent drinks for a few euros. Activities and shows (6/10): Our children enjoyed the many activities and shows. They are making a good effort to keep you and your children entertained. The comedy show and the cabaret was actually very fun to watch for both parents and children (3 years old and 6 years old). Staff / Service (3/10) : I had some issues and questions, and the staff where actually not very service minded. It was ok to use the phone and print some documents before leaving. We lost the credit cards and driving license and notified the reception about this. They recommended me literally to do nothing about it, except blocking the credit cards. I did not follow their advice, because I also made a police report, in risk of identity theft etc. The strange thing is that we emptied the safe maybe 4-5 times on different occasions to make 100 % sure that the cards wasn't hidden somewhere. Then suddenly, all the cards were found in the safe? Feels kind of strange and unpleasant. Room (6/10): We booked a superior room with sea view. However, the railing on the balcony kind of covered the sea view when sitting down on the chairs. Also, there was often a smell of drain in the toilet. Not very pleasant. Otherwise the room was perfectly fine with good standards, but with a warning. Some friends that we met booked with the swedish travel agency Ving, didn't get the room they were promised. So their room experience was nothing but bad. Pool area (8/10): The pool area were great, a few metres from the beach (stone beach!). Children had a lot of fun. There were several pools to choose from with different pool depth making it an excellent place to learn to swim for the children. Many thanks to the german swimming instructor! She was really skilled and great with the children. One more thing. This is not a quite place to relax: loud music, activities, large and crowded, etc. Late and loud music (until midnight) from the bar and entertainers. Every 15-20 minutes there are loud planes flying over the resort (close to the airport). So, whether you are a family or a couple looking for some nice place to relax, this is NOT the place to be. If you don't care about food and drink quality and don't care about the loudness, this might be the place for you! This also explains my bad rating!

The best thing about my stay was...

My Holiday

Read reviews before booking and worried needlessly. The room was spacious and clean. Reception staff were absolutely professional and helpful. Swimming pools were clean and soundness plentiful. No need to take towels as beach and room towels provided. Food was fantastic and varied. My only criticism was beds were a little hard and for some hotel under flight path might be a spoiler but not for me, only ten minutes from airport by taxi and 14 euros more than made up it. Beach was clean again sunbeds plentiful. Access to sea was via pebbles you need footwear really. I enjoyed snorkelling saw some Flatbush plus a sort of catfish with blue wing type fins. Drinks were brilliant and bar staff great. Room cleaners polite friendly and helpful . Animation team were hard working not too pushy ( not my scene in bed by 10 ). To cap I had a relaxing break at a bargain price and I'd love to return. I feel hotel has missed a trick by not providing easy access to sea by Jetty or a simple boardwalk or even a path through pebbles. But hey ho you can't have everything .would like to say given the fact drinks were flowing no one was drunk or obnoxious which made holiday so good forgot to state how clean grounds were.

The best thing about my stay was...

Relax pool away from music felt like a sandles advert swimming with sea and view of Turkey. plus buffet food so good and varied.
