This hotel, for me, was ideal. As I went at the beginning of their season there was not too many people there. The room was basic but very clean - with clean towels and sheets every other day. The food was simple but there was choices and I found it all was very tasty. Was disappointed that the range of deserts was very basic and didnt change. The bar staff - at the pool bar and the lounge bar (Gabreill) were polite and helpful. All the staff were friendly and helpful. For me I went for a... Read more

I went to this hotel last August with my partner for 2 weeks. The hotel is just ok, you get what you paid for, basic but not as bad as the reviews seem. Our room was in front of a abandoned hotel, so the views weren't that nice. However the room were clean every day and towels change dayly. The shower was not hot, but well it was absolutely hot so you don't really want a hot shower. We did not care to buy the extra air con as we spent the minimum time in the room.

I stayed in the poolside apartments. The apartment was very large, lots of room & loads of facilities. The cleaner, Anita, was amazing. She worked very hard, kept the apartments spotless, always had a smile for her visitors & spoke excellent English.The women at reception were very helpful, the dining room & bar staff were very friendly. Food was good & varied. I would recommend this hotel to others. I have stayed here before & would definitely stay here again.

Not the best hotel in rhodes. So good in fact that Thomas Cook downgraded it. Basically they think its rubbish and so do we. Good points first: clean rooms and bathrooms. Comfy beds. Linen changed 6 times a week. Bad points: food on all inclusive terrible at best. Breakfast uninspiring and luke warm. Lunch was repetitive and boring and dinner well we only ate it twice and both times it was cold and tasteless. Hence we ate out most days. The website and pool bar both say snacks out of all inclu...

Our visit to the solemar was pleasant enough, rooms were regularly cleaned and equipped with all our needs. There were plenty of sun beds around the pool at all times of the day with a decent sized clean pool. I feel the food was quite similar for lunch and dinner but tasted nice and was expected for a 3 star hotel. However I feel that the dessert area was very poor and limited and I was not impressed in the morning when I went to have fresh orange juice and was only served diluted juice. Drin... Read more

Reviews for hotel solemar were fairly promising before we went, a three star on the budget, it is worth noting however that Thomas Cook recently dropped it from 3/5 to 2/5, not great. First off the room, pretty spacious but the beds were like brick slabs, I struggled to sleep on them and only one pillow per person? The bathroom was very small and flooded after each shower. The shower head spewed water in all directions and fell off a few times and hit me on the head once. The balcony was also ve... Read more

Right here, goes I'm going to give the upmost of a very factual review Firstly the reviews on here seem to all point to the hotel being a bad hotel. Overall I don't think this is really the case. The hotel is in a nice location and fairly near the beach also near a street of shops and bars, which is good. Unfortunately a lot of the rooms do face the mountain on one side which is the room we had so didn't have the best of views song would recommend getting no a sea view room. I would also say tha...

The staff at this hotel were friendly and helpful. The lift did not operate on many occasions leaving guests trapped. The shower in the bathroom was too small and the floor uneven which resulted in flooding. The food was disgraceful and we had to eat out. The pool areas were dangerous and some guests were injured. The rating was exaggerated.

Very pleasant place to stay. Solemar is a great option if you choose a mid-range hotel in Rhodes. It offers nice rooms, super friendly staff- at the reception, animators, bars and in the restaurant (speacial distinction to Dora). Me and my girlfriend spent a wonderful summer week and trully recommend this hotel. Localization is relatively good considering a close location of the bus stop, that goes directly to Rhodes old town and very close proximity to the beach.

Hotel was clean and tidy, room was clean and sheets and towels changed daily, shower was lovely and powerful. Staff very friendly and helpful, This is a nice place to stay for the price although there could be more entertainment, the bars and restaurants are good but you need to like watching sports as lot of them have 14+ screens showing different sports, not our thing but good for others, would have liked somewhere a little livelier.

I have to say I'm a very fussy eater, I had no problems with the food provided and was very happy with the service. I found the pool area a nice place to sunbathe and to cool off in the pool, I enjoyed the entertainment in the day by the pool, I didn't take part every day in the activities but I was always aske...

When we arrived we were met at reception by Anna, she was lovely, helpful and cheerful as she always was when on reception, pity the other lady didn't take a few tips from Anna, the hotel is clean and although we were all inclusive, we opted for a one bed apartment, which were very nice clean and have showers that actually work well, the grounds could do with some attention which lets the place down, the pool is more than adequate and has enough loungers for everyone, which is more than the tabl...

Genuinely had a great time and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is good value for money, rooms are smallish but cosy with a nice view and are cleaned every day. Food is fine, I am surprised to find so many negative comments on here, I guess it is just what you pay for. I'd say pool area needs some kind of upgrade, however it's pretty large with loads of sun beds and a nice snacks bar too. Location is very good, restaurants, bars, markets - everything is within walking distance. Staff is brilliant an... Read more

We are coming to the end of a lovely two week holiday. The Solemar is well situated, surrounded by bars, restaurants, supermarkets and chemists. The nearest public beach is a ten minutes walk. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are kept very clean and are a good size. The shower is small when the curtain is closed which made it a bit difficult. (I am large but not the widest). We had booked all inclusive and ate at the hotel three times a day, apart from when we were on trips... Read more

We have just arrived back from a week at the solemar. Where do I start??!! Rooms were clean, apart from the shower curtain which was full of mould. The shower was the smallest little box which flooded onto the bathroom floor every night and created a pool in the bathroom. There is obviously only one lot of towels for each room they get taken in the morning and don't come back till 6-8 at night. So if you want a shower at night be prepared to use your beach towels. The pool area is all overgrown... Read more

Good hotel friendly staff but if you want purely English food not the place for you. Some areas of the hotel need a bit of TLC but overall I can't fault it. There is always something that you can eat and considering that there are all sorts of nationalities using the hotel you are never going to please everyone. Overall my wife and I are thoroughly enjoying our time here.

We enjoyed a week at the Solemar. We stayed in the apartments which were very clean although the bathrooms need a complete updating. The lounge and bar area were very smart. The food was lovely especially the salad bar and the staff both in the dining room and the reception were very friendly and helpful. The complaints we have is where our rooms were situated we were disturbed very early every morning by dogs continually barking. The road ouside the hotel is a nightmare to cross and very noisy ...

Firstly. The photos you see are not what it's really like. On arrival at 23.30 they want to charge you for water when is a i. The carpet out side the room looked like someone had been shot on it with all the stains. The room smelled of smoke. The breakfast was really poor. The pool side was ok! So save a little extra and book somewhere else. When checking out the next day the staff never even asked why.

Evening all, Thought I would do a review because not done one in a while. We stayed in the apartments which mean we could chill when needed too but we're not far away from everything so was cool. The size of the apartments do seem to vary but ours was fine.Cleaned everyday except Sunday, but that is the day of rest. Gianni on the pool bar is limited with his smiles, but he does and I always had a wee blether with him. Carol was friendly as always, thought the pool area was fine, a few sun beds n... Read more

We have just had a 3 night stay at this hotel for the 3rd year running. You can't fault the staff especially Gabrielle and his team behind the bar who always greet you with a smile. The food has definitely improved from last year. Our room was clean and appeared to have been updated recently. Fantastic location with every thing you need on your doorstep. Looking forward to returning again next year.

I stayed here from the 5th - 12th October with my 2 sisters, we had read a few mixed reviews before we stayed here so wasn't sure what to expect. The positives was easy check in, hotel was clean and our room was cleaned every day apart from Sunday as that's their day off. Plenty of sun beds for early oct. The negatives was the stray cats around the hotel that some holiday guests kept feeding while u was trying to sunbathe , the cats didn't look too healthy either which made it more uncomfortab...

My friends and I stayed here for a week we were very disappointed with the hotel, although it was very clean there seemed to be more cats there than people, cats were in the hotel we had to step over them on the stairs when going down for our dinner, they were allowed in the restaurant to, theres definately no health and safety were cats were concerned, they were all around the pool area with cat poo everywhere, the food wasn't up to much, the bar people were miserable although carol was the onl...
