... home the next day. Air pressure on the plane..
The altitude must have caused it to explode- ouch.
It turned into a horrible multitude of blisters, and it took me so long to recover, but luckily leaving no scars.
This seems to be the memory of Greece that sticks in my mind the most- OUCH!
... of St. John, Ottoman Turks, Italians, Germans, British (and probably a few others) before settling under the umbrella of Greece in 1947. The impression I got was they simply shrugged their shoulders and moved on with life. Reaching the ancient site of the Acropolis ( literally translates as the city at the top) of Lindos was a little daunting, involving climbing almost 300 cobble stone steps to reach the site where a temple of ...

This was home to the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Google it; the Colossus was a giant statue of a man who stood guard at the harbor where we now are moored. There is no evidence of the existence of Colossus visible to us.

Saiamüüja ringutab hommikul alles rõdul.
Mõjub pisut hirmutavalt, kui hiiglaslik Diagoras manööverdab Symi miniatuurses sadamas. Saar kaob kiirelt aegade hämusse ja maakera kumeruse taha.
Rhodese sadamas pakub rolleril vanamees tuba, aga ma lehvitan vastuseks tiibu ja kulutan aja ära hommikusöögi peale varemete keskel. Orienteerun netist pähe õpitud kaardi järgi uue turuni ja ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Ocean Blue Kremasti
What a sham!!!
me and my partner are a young couple who saved hard for this holiday so when i booked my holiday i expected a luxurious 5* hotel and spa but what we got was a half built hotel with NO SPA!! cold food and poor entertainment shabby rooms which were botched and blatently rushed ! i complained to the management who were very dismissive. u others who said wat a fantastic time u had are obviously easily pleased or were drunk all the time i have made a full complaint and would not entertain that hotel again.we had no water one day in the week we was there and the second restaurant was not even up and running did not pay all that money for just a half a done sham.
Fantastic Holiday, Fantastic Staff.
We stayed at the hotel from the 2nd May untill the 16th May.
The hotel had just been refurbished to a high standard and although there were a few teething problems, the staff more than made up for it. The staff were friendly and went out of their way to help make our holiday a memourable one. The Animation team were wonderful at organising games, not just for the adults but also for the children, from 10.00am untill 11.00pm.
We enjoyed our stay, met new friends and we all hope to meet again next yearat the Ocean Blue.
We stayed at Ocean Blue 12th to 26 May 2007 and had a wonderful time. The rooms, having been recently refurbed, were very modern and kept very clean. We had our 2 year old son in our room and there was plenty of room for a large cot for him. We overlooked the pool (so that we could put our son to bed before our dinner and hear him through the monitor in the restaurant and bar which was a godsend for us!) The pool was lovely and cleaned every morning. The restaurant was excellent the first week when the hotel was a bit quieter but the when numbers increased significantly for the second week a few problems arose (running out of glasses, plates etc) but the staff were always doing their best to put things right asap. Food was excellent - we always get bored with all inclusive but we did pretty well for the two weeks - we did go out a few times but that was our choice. I would recommend this hotel to families but not young groups looking for a wild time! Animation team were quite good, especially Marta - they asked if you wanted to join in every day but did not push you into anything and left you alone if thats' what you wanted. A cab to Rhodes town was 11/12 euro - well worth it. We also had a car for 3 days which was excellent - Lindos is beautiful and worth a visit. So, overall had a fab time and wish I was back there now!
Booking was for a superior room with private pool but none of them were completed;area resembled a building site
Food wascold during first week due to electrical problems but this was resolved after a 'revolt' by guests
Facilities did not meet promises indicated on website
Many safety hazards in public areas especially in volleyball/tennis court and children's play area where metal water sprinklers protruded several inches above ground
Animation team were brilliant especially Thomas and Marta
Not much in local area so have to travel into Ialissos village or Kremasti for shopping;approx 12 euros for taxi to Rhodes town
Hotel staff very helpful and friendly but were let down by poor management and lack of organisation
My family and I stayed there for two weeks in August during which we all had a brilliant time.
We stayed at this hotel for two weeks in July. The first room we were given had not been cleaned and still had the previous occupants dirty, wet towels and cups and rubbish and soiled bed sheets. The second room we were given was very small, it did have a fridge and a very noisy air con machine that didnt blow out much air. The bathroom was very dirty and you could see the grime on the bath which was very slippy.
I returned from Ocean Blue last week having spent a week there from 12/7/06. Firstly, the staff at Ocean Blue were fantastic - extremely friendly and could not do more for you. Unfortunately I felt let down by the actual hotel. Mainly because of the website which proclaimed to be so much more than it is.
Good but with problems
was there from 11 to 21 july, rooms 80% old, for lunch the food is very bad and served near the pool(?!) in a terribile heat, good refurb of public spaces, but that is all. excellent staff, but not everyboby be carefull what you order and what you've got to the bar. around is almost "no man"s land" nothing to do in little Kremasti , if you rent a car and drive to Rodes you"ll be ok
