The public areas of the hotel are very clean and comfortable. The gardens are well tended. The pool is extremely clean and Kiri, the owner, sees that it is maintained properly. While we were there (9th to 16th July 2014) there were always plenty of comfortable loungers around the pool. The staff (Dana, Krystina and Joseph) cannot do enough for you and were very friendly. Our room was well decorated, adequately furnished and was cleaned every day. We like to wander around and find tavernas when we are on holiday but did eat in the hotel twice and the food was ok. Breakfast is good - plenty to choose from. We do like to walk when we are on holiday but the road outside the hotel was quite busy and as always in Greece, no pavements, so a little dangerous after dark (almost impossible to get taxis even though quite near the airport). However, taverna owners in Theologos (about 20 minute walk) were extremely kind and took us back to the hotel several times. There is a small beach about 8 minutes walk away but it is not the best as there is a lot of debris and it is pebbly. It is easy to get into Rhodes Town on the bus which runs every hour. We had a lovely holiday and met some interesting and friendly people from lots of different countries. Would recommend this hotel if you want a very relaxing time.
Nothing is too much trouble, no forced entertainment or loud music here, just good food good surroundings and good company. Be prepared to walk a bit to the supermarket ( 10 mins or so ) and the rainbow bar on the beach is a great place to watch the sunset.
We chose Vivian Studios for the reviews and for the location, we were not disappointed. The studios are well located not far from Rhodes Town but far enough that you feel part of the local community which was wonderful. The room was light, clean and had a little sunny balcony perfect to sit out on and watch the sun come up and the people go about their daily lives. I especially loved the songs coming from the monks on Filerimos on the Sunday morning. Vivian and Irene were welcoming and attentive. I loved sitting with an expresso in the shade of a lilac tree in the small courtyard and hearing all about Rodos from Irene. Self catering was easy as the Super Market and Bakery is just across the street and unbelievably cheap. Cooking was a bit of a challenge as there is only a two ring hob but we still managed eggs and bacon on most mornings and you can eat out at the local Tavernas each evening which was wonderful. We will definitely be returning to Rhodes and to Vivian studios hopefully very soon. I can highly recommend.
We had a great time in Rhodes and at the Sun Beach Hotel. We were there during the off season- last week the hotel was open before the winter shut down. It was very quiet which was just what we were looking for. The front desk clerks were very helpful and friendly. They really looked after us and because it was quiet they upgraded our room. They also let us check out later which us helpful. The restaurant staff were very nice and professional. The food was delicious and there was always lots of it. We rented a car from the company that is based out of the hotel and once again that worked out great. We are planning on going back and when we do we will stay at Sun Beach.
