Just arrived back from this accommodation in Rhodes. It's only a 5 minute drive from the airport cost us €12 in a taxi so no need to do transfers from the airport. The first thing you will notice about the Euroxenia is that it has very clean apartments all air conditioned during the summer months for free (well needed when we arrived). We took the kids with us - huge mistake, they had no entertainment for them whatsoever. We spent most of our time by the pool just relaxing - good job that is all we were looking for in our holiday but for families looking for all day entertainment forget it!
The food was very Greek really wierd combinations as well, I didn't mind it for the first five days but our holiday duration was ten nights so for the other five nights we ate out at a close restaurant called Dundee's, this was a family run restaurant and the food well just what we all needed!!
We travelled to Faliraki for one day and went to the water park down ther it was great and it only cost us €25 to get there by taxi - about a fifteen minute drive well worth it (we actually had something we could all do).
The beach was only a ten minute walk from the hotel but it was not a great beach shale/sand - you could do with beach sandals to walk into the sea because of all the pebbles.
Overall not a bad holiday, but kids watch out for the lady in reception she is mean and a kiddy hater, we all nick named her Cruella Deville!! hehe.
