... back to the van we still had a guard dog which we had met earlier, sat next to our van barking at anything that went by apart from us. We fed the dog and went on our way to the next destination. Arriving in the dark we made it to the Pilio peninsula just past Volos. Tried finding a campsite but they were all closed for the winter, luckily we found a nice area next to a marina to park up for the night. ...
... watching out their window saying "you're right this side", it was slow going but we managed it unscathed!! Once again I'm glad we had this detour because I'm sure not many tourists have made their way down those roads much less driven them! We have found that the landscape on this side is not nearly as pretty as the mountain roads we were on yesterday.... we drove through Argalasti which we thought was a "real" town, no pretty mountain stone houses here, more practical and ...
... in mind to stay. Unfortunately as we had told Jane to only take us on main roads ( after the goat track, dirt road over the mountain incident ) we ended up driving smack bang through the middle of Volos, something I had wanted to avoid! It's crazy town, people, cars and vespa type bikes (of which there are hundreds here) whipping around everywhere. Roads quite skinny that once again even though we're in a major town had to pull over to let oncoming traffic ...
... of Pouri. You should have in mind though that the road down the hill is extremely steep and winding all the way down. At some point we thought the brakes caught fire!
I was so scared with the smell of the brakes at that time that I wanted to get back to the main road before it gets dark so I did not enjoy that outing very much.
Now that I see my photos and remember the wild beauty ...
... that I stop taking more photos. Instantly I stopped and this is the reason I have very few from the interior.
We are 600 metres above sea level and the view is amazing. Unfortunately there is work going on at the moment at the new and much bigger church which stands right in front of the Monastery. The new one is huge and it can be seen from miles away, but unfortunately we found its doors locked ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Doreta Beach Hotel Tholos
We have recently returned from a week at the Doreta Beach. The hotel is very close to the airport with the beach under the flight path of all departing flights from Rhodes. Although most of the time the noise is not an inconvenience the occasional smell of kerosene when you are sunning yourself on the beach can be off-putting.
I have just returned from the Doreta today and as i left felt very sad! i had fantastic 2 weeks all inclusive at the hotel and apart form the outside snack bar i have no complaints! the highlights of the holiday was indeed the staff. Me and my boyfriend made friends with alot of the staff and were very sad to say good bye. the service is great, although dont trust leaving valubles in your room, a safe behind reception is a must have..the island is absolutly beautiful, Lindos is a must visit. We got the chance to visit various places through our Thompson Reps, who were also friendly as can be! we even got the chance to go to Turkey which was an experience i can tell you! the entertainment team were great...friendly, always smilin, funny..im sad to leave and will probably go back to visit everyone. Rob is a joker (remeber Peter Andre Mr & Mrs July 2004-yea this is us!!) Jenna is great singer and dancer (keep it up hunni, ur great) Danielle is gorgeous and great with kids and Amanda is an all rounder (and many will say has great BIG assests lol) the bar staff are some of the nicest people ive met.always helpful, havin a joke..my boyfriend got very attatched to them.sad to leave. All in all, this hotel has everything you could want. Food, drink, games, watersports,shops and the best staff iv met for a long time.keep it up guys..ill definatly b back to visit you. thanx for makin my 2 weeks unforgetable...oh and the beach is not all shingles, only at the very edge...mostly sand! anyone who complainsabout this resort abviously expects too much,its a great hotel,great staff,great services..quiet yes, but we were told that before we booked and we wanted a relaxin quiet resort, so what else do people expect!!!! the perfect place for what i needed...relaxation!! and whoever said the entertainment was like Butlins need a HUGE wake up call...must b deaf AND blind. cya guys! xxxxxxxxxxxxx
My wife and I had a good time at this hotel and enjoyed staying here
Unfortunately went to Doreta on the recommendation of friends.
Booked to stay at Doreta Beach Hotel the night before on the internet so wasn't sure what to expect when we arrived. Myself and my boyfriend were put into a small room without airconditioning at 4am when we checked in but were told we could move rooms after 12 noon. To our delight we were then placed in a larger, air conditioned room with an amazing view of the sea! We had a very relaxing week, as a couple looking for a quiet week we did find the hotel very family orientated but enjoyed lazing by the pool just the same. The food was average with not much variation on the menu, but had a wide selection. The rooms were very clean and the staff very friendly but do take your own hairdryer as the ones provided are pathetic. If you forget to take anything with you the shop across the road has everything you need. We hired a car for the day and had a wander around rhodes old town at night, not to be missed!
I have only just returned from Doreta Beach Hotel in Rhodes, & cannot describe how great the holiday was. I went with my daughter (6) & my husband, as well as my sister & her partner, who were in a seperate room. Doreta Beach is a fantastic resort if you have children, as there is a great kids club, & daily discos for them as well as a playground & a baby pool. I cannot believe that so many people go on holiday & do nothing but spend all of their time complaining. Of course if you go to a foreign country, their choice of food will be different from which you would choose yourself at home. The main attraction for me to book this was the affordable price, & you definately get what you pay for. We were All Inclusive which was great not too have too worry about the money you are spending each time you feel like a drink or a snack. All of the staff were very friendly & the rooms were imacculate. There are safety deposit boxes available, & everything you need for a great holiday within the actual hotel. I cannot highlight how great it is, but would definetley recommend it to anyone with kids. We also hired a car for the day & drove around the fulll island, which is a must as Rhodes old town is unmissable. I booked online & then read some people's reviews, which really did put me off & I even tried to cancel the booking which I had made. I am now very glad that I stuck with it & will definetley return to Doreta Beach again.
I returned on Sunday from Doreta Beach. We stayed for 2 weeks all inclusive and we thought the place was fantastic!
Only downside (not really a downside as such) was the food but you can't expect to go to a foreign country and have the same food choice as you get at home can you!
Entertainment was fantastic day and night, Entertainment team were great too especiall Rob and Jenna - great voice Jenna!!!!!
Our room was great, overlooking the sea, cleaned every day and linen changed everyday.
All staff very helpfull, bar staff friendly especially when Greece made it into Euro final - wish i could have stayed another night to see them win the final!!!!!
I will definately be going back to the Doreta Beach next year!
I went to the Doreta Beach in April after being reallocated when my original booking had to be changed (the initial hotel, the Electra Palace in Trianda was undergoing refubishment which was not ready in time for the start of the season).
Perfect June break
We were a party of 4 fortysomethings who stayed from 9/6/04 until 16/6/04 at this hotel. We had heard lots of stories about all-inclusives and had read lots of the reviews given by other travellers on this complex, but we are all agreed it was fantastic.
we have just come back from our holiday. we stayed in one of the self catering apartments. they were cleaned every day (even the dirty dishes) and clean sheets and towels. it was my 2 yr olds first holiday and she loved it. great pool and kids disco in the night she made loads of new friends.
