Travel operator: On the Beach
Hotel tip: Eat in A La Carte restaurant which us included in all inclusive but you have to pay for your drinks. You need to book one day in advance at the reception. Ask for room on 3rd floor up as these have been refurbished.
Entertainment staff had never done it before and didnt have a clue as too keeping people entertained in the day, the childerens entertainer took 10+ kids aged from 2-12 alone to the beach and didnt keep an eye on them properly, they were going into the sea alone, she also spent her time flirting with a group of lads when she was meant to be in charge of the kids.
Snack bar food was appalling gone was the homemade burgers, fish fingers ect for the kids, in came chewy pork and crunchy speghetti, and dried out pizza everyday!!
Resturant still managed well by (danni de vito) but didnt have as much choice as previous years, and variation was limited.
On the good side rooms cleaned and new towels and sheets changed daily.
Travel operator: Independently
The staff did as much as possible to assist us where possible. The beach adjoined the pool area.
The entertainment/reception area of the hotel was always uncomfortably hot in the evening.

The hotel is nice and being done up to make it a 5 star in the future.
Rooms- We had a double room with extra bed. It was clean and had been re-painted, It over looked the pool and sea. with plenty of room for me and my two boys aged 13 and 10. A tip if you are in a room with the new air condition. You must ask at recption for a remote controll. It will cost you 30 euro deposit.but its returned at the end of your hoildays.
Food- lots of people were moaning on here about food, remember you are in greece, There are lots to chose from even a late breakfeast if you want a lie in.There is food served from 7.30am till 11pm. try the out side cafe that does snacks.
Drinks.I could not understand why so many people moaned about this. You can drink from 7.30 am till 11pm, Yes some of the spirits are weaker. most are 35% in staid of 37% but do as we did drink a couple extra. As for the beer its 4.2 as to fosters at 4.0..
Entertainment- Its not the best i have seen, but the guys keep you goin and try hard to keep the kids involved, my kids loved it and had fun.Look out for Danny is young but great with everone. Only problem is from manchester, But really they were all nice.
Staff- They are the best that i have come acrossed and were always willing to help. The bar staff from both bars love to have fun and are entertainment in them selves.
Out and about. First of all you are less tha 10 minutes away from the airport so expect some noise. but after the first day you will forget it. There are a few bars and shops along the road.As for bars if you want to drink till 4am in the morning then go to mambos oppsite the hotel. Its were all the bar staff get togher after work.
My favourite place has to be Dundees, We went the 4 times for a break, The food is good and the people that run it are excellent.Try there chinese it better than any ive had in this country.Also they but all the football games on.
Places to go in rhodes.
Lindos- Its ok but as im an animal lover i do not believe that donkeys should be treated the way they are, Also be careful you dont get knocked over by them as the charge down the hills at speed.
Water park- The kids loved at, yer i must agree it was worth 20 euros for adults and 15 for kids.
Well hope now if your going to doretta beach you will
be able to relax and have fun just as we have.
A great thanks to all at the hotel for making my kids two weeks holiday extra special. will i return, Yes of course i still have some more beers to drink.

Yes the rooms are dated but clean and tidy. We stayed in a Maisonette that was very spacious and clean. The food was always good and a good range was offered at all mealtimes.
We found the staff VERY friendly and helpful, and if you take the time to speak to them they are more than happy to tell you about the Island.
The beach is pebbly and not the best we have seen but the previous week there had been a very bad storm on the island. But this aside it was not helped by the disgusting mess left behind by the tourists (incidentally its was about 98% British) staying there..................no fault of the hotel.............. On a daily basis there were plastic cups, plates and fag ends just left for someone else to clean up. There are many rubbish bins positioned all over the beachand throughout the complex, but it would seem that people just could not be bothered to clean up after themselves.
The entertainment was very good. A few 'very' amateur shows early in the week didnt give us hope for the rest of our stay BUT how wrong we were.
The staff were very good at getting people involved with the games and even managed to get loads of people involved in a game where most adults AND children in the room lost one or more items of clothing at some stage of the evening. Very funny indeed.
The Doreta Beach is definately on our list to return to, the weather was good, temperatures were good, the staff and locals were very nice and Rhodes is gorgeous!

Maid came daily with clean towels and swept the room.
The main resturant was a shambles, not enough staff and a very small danny devito trying and I do mean tying to run it! The food was the same every day and normally cold. The noise in the resturant was terrible we eat out most evenings try Nicky accross the road we found peace and good food!
No chance of getting a sun bed round the pool as if you would want one with the noise, the pool side bar played very loud music possible garage/house all day.
Mix the music and unsupervised children running around it was no place to relax.
The beach sun beds were all taken by towels well before dawn.
We did not go into the hotel bar just put our heads in the door one night that was enough.
Would not give this hotel a second look.

Hotel restaurant was i thought well run. You were allocated your table area, so when you had finished tables were cleared away quickly. The restaurant food I found to be very good. plenty of variety and as usual, people moaning that there are chips, of course there are chips, but plenty of other food as well.
Pool area, Fantastic. Very clean and well maintained. Bar drinks are usual All Inclusive, local branded, rather than named.
I have visisted Rhodes a few times now and I love this Island. Rhodes town is only 20 mins on the coach that stops outside hotel, or 18 euro by taxi. Beutiful harbour and old town with lovely restaurants.
overall, a good hotel for what you pay, and I think people should realise this. if you want 5 star, then you will have to pay 5 star. I would rate this hotel a very good 3star, and great for a family holiday.
I would stay at this hotel again.
