    Extend opening hours of monuments
    The trip to Rhodes was very long (18 hours by ferry) but fortunately there were no delays. Last summer, we had travelled by ferry again and the departure was 2 hours late. We had been more tired of the delay than the trip. Fortunately, this time all went good.

    We love all the greek islands but and we are coming for relaxing every year. This time we were looking for something more traditional. Afandou in Rhodesseemed the perfect place, which it proved to be correct. Protect such lovely beaches and do not turn them in teen beaches, like Faliraki.

    Greece loves its history a lot and preserves it nicely. The Acropolis in Lindos was excellent. It is just a shame that some monuments are closing in the afternoon. When are we supposed to climb up the hills with the monuments, when the sun is burning? They should really be open till sunset.

    The traditional Greek food is a must, it is absolutely lovely. I personally like the lamb kleftico, or stifado and the sword fish is always cooked to perfection. In Afandou we went to the reknowned four seasons restaurant almost every evening, as the chef and waiters were fantastic. They even opened one and half hours earlier, so they could give us a last meal before setting off to the airport at 7pm.

    No such thing as bad Greek meal
    I am in my 60's and therefore I prefer mostly te village life and no music bars and discos, rather a relaxed nightlife. We stayed in Afandou village on our vacations to Rhodes, about two years ago. The beaches was beautiful and pretty crowded in late August.

    People in taverns and gift shops were friendly, although sometimes I would feel some pressure to buy. Food was excellent but dishes were normal. You usually find the same menus in Greek restaurants, whether you are in Athens or in the islands. However, all are of good quality. There is no such thing as a bad Greek meal.

    Our hotel was great but one thing that I din't like was that the sewage system hasn't been improved over the last 25 years that I visit Greece. Bins need to be emptied on a daily basis, too, which is very weard because in UK we have sold these things out since many ages.

    Not very child friendly
    Afandou was a long and nice beach, with clear water and nice taverns close to it. Our hotel was there and we were frequent visitors. No problem with Afandou, everything was fine. However, if you have children, it would be better to find a more child-friendly beach, because a lot of windsurfing was practised there. This means that both windsurfers and the wind blowing were dangerous.
