Lindos: Lindos - A jewel
Posted on October 15, 2006 by Julia
Having been going to Lindos since I was 12 in 1979 (which makes me oohh 21 now !!!) I can only say that it is a fantastic place. The locals never fail to make you feel welcome and can never do enough for you. As there are no cars allowed in the village it is great for kids and the beaches are lovely with lots of shallows for the children to play in. My daughter now wants to live there!! GO - have a holiday to remember, you won't regret it !!!!
Kalathos: Absolutely fab
Posted on September 28, 2006 by Brownster
Visited Kalathos several times in past four years. Absolutely fab. Great food at the Olive Grove, where Jane and Tommy look after you well. If you want a great night, relaxing atmosphere go to Yiannis. He is a fantastic host. The local supermarket stocks most items and they are very helpful. Lindos is a short taxi ride away where the nightlight shifts up a gear, great for a change of pace. Can't wait to go again.
Kalathos: Symi paradise island
Posted on September 28, 2006 by John n Jackie
Symi at first glance is a picture postcard of a place,quiet and peaceful and it does not dissapoint.Lovely cuisine,nice walks,lovely warm people. Visit Pedi beach,bit pepply but ok for nuddy sunbathing,also taxi boats to sandier spots and local festival end of August,Greek traditional music hard to beat.Symi is a hidden treasure,don,t tell anyone about it,keep it to yourself.Do yourself a favour,give it a try.
Haraki (Charaki): Loving Haraki
Posted on September 26, 2006 by Heather & Sophie
Have been to Haraki 2005 and 2006 and can honestly say they have been the most relaxing holidays we have ever had. The food is great- especially Costas and Helenas and Haraki Bay Hotel. It is especially beautiful because it is so unspoilt and the locals are all so friendly and helpful. Hope to return and live there when my daughter finishes school.

Haraki (Charaki): Fanastic for a place to chill out
Posted on September 15, 2006 by Maz n Shug
Haraki is just fanastic for a place to chill out. The locals are so friendly and make you feel so welcome. We spend a week in Haraki and then two weeks in Pefki. Best of both worlds! Going shortly for our three weeks of paradise. Bliss x
Lindos: Lindos let down
Posted on September 13, 2006 by janice
I'm afraid I was extremely dissappointed with Lindos. The magic just wasn,t there! Perhaps I have been spoiled with my paradise island of Paros.
I did enjoy Rhodes Town - very cosmopolitan.
I enjoy authentic Greek and just couldn,t find it.
Must say the people were wonderful and the restaurants are second to none, but so are the people on Paros.
Sorry - holidays being precious I won't return and will still continue to fly back to my Paros (like a homeing pigeon).
So many famililar and firendly faces there!
Haraki (Charaki): Heaven on Earth
Posted on September 12, 2006 by Chris & Steve
Stayed in Haraki twice last year and June this year. Looking forward to a two week stay this coming September. It is the most relaxing, chill out place ever. The people are so friendly and really do make you feel welcome. Just a few names -- Nina, Costas & Elena, Mikey, Jacob, Manilos & his family & Jack. Roll on next Wednesday. Just absolutely love Haraki.
Tholos (Theologos): Tholos
Posted on September 7, 2006 by Derek
Just arrived home from tholos, Rhodes(7/9/06). We had 2 weeks at the Filoxeia Aparthotel, we were s/c for a few days. Eatig at "Goodfellas" & "Mikes", the food was very good, as was their friendliness & willingness to please. Taxi service is not too good from the hotel. Tour of island we enjoyed, BUT it would be nice to be told (entry fee's are not in the prices) so what started at €70 for 2 of us, ended in another €44. Mosies in the village are a problem (we had nothing with us). There is about 10/12 tervernes in the village. Super-markets about 6 to go to. But we enjoyed the quite & would like to go back again.
Pefkos (Pefki): Excellent place
Posted on September 6, 2006 by Jill Stubbs
An absolutely excellent place to go for a relaxing holiday!
Been 3 times in 2 years, it feels like our spiritual home. The restaurants are wonderful especially Hellas Garden where they cook the best steak we've ever tasted. We'll be going back again next year so am counting down the months!
Rhodes Old Town: Rhodes town
Posted on September 4, 2006 by maya
This was nice, you have the old city and the new. What a contrast. It was nice walking through it, nobody bothered you, tryin to sell their goods. You can just wonder about and enjoy their way of life - wonderful.
