lydia Maris- its good, but not that 'ultra' good

"After staying in Rhodes for the past 6 years, we decided to do the ultimate- go all inclusive- infact one better- go Ultra all inclusive!

was it a mistake?- probably in reflection yes, but that is just personal taste.

The hotel is classed as a 4/5 star, I would say on cleanliness then I would offer 4 stars, but on amenities and overall facilities probaly a 3.5 star.

The room was lovely- we stayed in a junior suite at quite a hefty supplement, it was not overly large, but for the time you spend in a room in greece was adequate.

The food was good, varied and fresh, but unfortunately, and purely our own fault lacks that greek experience, as you are sat in a well lit dining room with tablecloths and a maitre'd hovering, not the lovely taverna greek experience- but as I say- our own fault- we knew of this when we booked, but just did not realise how much we would miss the eating out touch.

The hotel mainly caters for german guests, the animation team speak firstly in german and then translate into english, and the entertainment is not of either a 4 nor 5 star standard.

We are yet to understand why they class the property as an ultra all inclusive, as far as we can see it really does not offer anything more ultra than any other all inclusive property- mini bar only filled the once you arrive, and packed lunches are now no longer available, so really it is just another all inclusive, which unfortunately just like all the rest in greece is ruining the local business into the ground. Rhodes is truly a gem of a holiday destination, but if you want to feel, touch, smell, taste and hear the true Rhodes with all your five senses then stay clear of the all inclusive, go local.

"My husband and my daughter who was 13 and myself stayed at the lydia maris hotel

our room was fantastic clean and big shame there was no view though only a car rental lot and a wall.

The service and the food were all very good and all areas were very clean. The disco was not open as it was coming to the end of the season and the other guest didn’t seem to want to join in the entertainment.

Eating alfresco was nice as the hotel gets quieter breakfast and lunch is all out side. This is a predominantly German hotel so you need to remind the entertainment staff that you are English or you won’t understand what is going on.

The only down side to the holiday was pack lunches are not worth having ie a roll a apple no water for you the ants that visited your room every day and they bite just use the spray off the cleaning trolley.

At the beginning of the week there was only 5 English people there and by the end of the week 9 there is a bar up at the cross roads can’t remember what it was called but you will recognise it from all the footy t shirts hanging worth a visit.

Local buses are awful its like a cattle market board at your own risk, lovely place to visit and had a good time.

General: A nice hotel which has been...


A nice hotel which has been recently refurbished throughout.

Good points:

Friendly helpful and competent staff (pity I can't say the same for the travel agents Otbeach). Clean rooms and communal area. All inclusive is exactly as it says (although make sure you get the Ultra deal if you don't want to pay for the drinks in your room fridge). Town is nice and friendly and a gentle stroll away and the beach is easy to get too also - although expect to pay 6 euros for a sun bed per day. We stayed in the junior suites which were lovely apart from the bathroom which need refurb.

Bad points:

Food - They try to vary it but fail I’m afraid and if you're going on an all inclusive for more than one week then expect to be bored. Also temperature - much of the food was only luke warm I’m afraid and the food in the snack bar was uncovered and attacked by insects. Maybe that's why we were both very poorly!

I would argue that the hotel is about an average 3* or in Greek terms then an average 4*. Nice enough, but don't expect anything amazing.

"This hotel is lovely, it's situated in a peaceful quite village of Rhodes.

The hotel has everything you would ever need to make your holiday. The rooms are cleaned daily to a very high standard.

The food is excellent and with so much choice to suit everyone and buffet style so you can try new things.

They hold a weekly Greek night which is very entertaining and well done.

The staff are the friendliest people you are likely to meet on your holiday.

They have a disco/nightclub on site where the bar staff are great fun.

We are booked up again already and so looking forward to it.

"This hotel is in the middle of nowhere, however if you want to relax in peace and quiet this is the place to go.

The hotel is exceptionally clean with maid service everyday.

The food was out of this world, always piping hot and very well prepared and fresh.

Overall this is a great place, the pool is great and again very clean.

The reception staff couldn’t have been anymore helpful, they all spoke excellent English too.

All in all an excellent All Inclusive break. Would go again.
