A Review of the Junior Suite at the Levante Beach Resort, Rhodes with Mark Warner Holidays

IMG_8497I was recently lucky enough to encounter a wonderful holiday courtesy of Mark Warner and a competition I won to visit the 5 Star Levante Beach Resort in Rhodes, Greece.

One of the things that I find really valuable before I travel anywhere is real people’s opinions on places they have been and, in particular, the hotel rooms that they stay in. I put in a lot of research on Tripadvisor and YouTube as well as looking at the hotel’s own website so that I can get a proper look at the rooms.

When we stayed at the Levante Resort, all 12 bloggers were given a Junior Suite to themselves. The space was huge! I know that I could have brought Grace and Ross with me and we would have been extremely comfortable in a suit this size.

I was given a room in the middle block to the right as you looked out from the rear of the hotel reception. This was well-placed for the adult pool and an equidistant walk to the beach and to the hotel.

Room

The Room Layout

As you entered the room you had a long stretch of wardrobe on your left with a large amount of hanging and drawer space as well as home to the room safe. On your right, there was a well-appointed bathroom with two sinks, a bath, a separate stand alone shower and a toilet. Walking past the bathroom you entered the ‘lounge’ area which doubled as another bedroom with two sofas which transformed into beds, a coffee table, a desk, a wall-mounted television and it’s own patio door opening onto the private terrace(balcony on the first floor).

To your left, separating the lounge area, was a large sliding door which took you through to the main bedroom. This held a Queen-sized bed with bedside table on either side, large wardrobe with both hanging and wall space, a large dressing table with lighted mirror, a fridge and a wall-mounted television. This too had it’s own patio door which opened onto the same stretch of terrace which housed a rack for drying your clothes and a patio table and 4 chairs.

There was an information book detailing what was on offer from room service and the usual safety information as well as details about the Spa.

Room Specifics

  • The fridge was a fairly good size although you couldn’t stand up a 1 litre bottle in there.
  • The bathroom had a shelf underneath the sinks which held towels – beach and bathroom. There were also slippers and extra toilet roll. The sinks both had their own small bottles of shower gel/shampoo and some small packs of soap.
  • There was a small, close-up mirror in the bathroom next to the hairdryer which was fairly powerful
  • The safe was easy to use and was big enough to fit a notebook sized laptop inside
  • The shower was really powerful. I didn’t use the bath
  • The air-conditioning was great!
  • The Queen-sized bed was comfortable and cool with just the right amount of sheets and pillows – however there were extras in the wardrobe should you need them.
  • There were 2 robes hanging in the wardrobe. I used this during my stay and it was comfortable
  • There were two TV remote controls and they both worked on both tvs!

Any issues?

Yes, I experienced two. The first was an ant problem around the sinks in the bathroom, however, this was dealt with quickly and efficiently. I also had an issue with my room safe. I hadn’t forgotten the code, it just wouldn’t work. Again, I reported this to the front desk and they resolved it that afternoon.

Any thing missing?

The only thing I could have done with was a full-length mirror.

Overall Thoughts

This is a room suited to a single traveller right up to a family of five (2 adults, 2 children and a baby). It was spacious, well-appointed and comfortable. Any problems were dealt with quickly and efficiently. I would happily stay here again.

    Very informative review Victoria. I’ve never been on a Mark Warner holiday but would look into it as an option as the activities and kids facilities look amazing and clearly the room you had was very spacious! It is a shame your couldn’t test drive it with the whole family but bet it was fab to spend a bit of time without them. What a treat! Love Greece! Although am horrified you had no full length mirror – it IS essential. Hate it when hotels don’t have them and you end up having use the patio window or something to try and see what you look like. #PoCoLo

    It does look an amazing place. I’d been eyeing up Mark Warner holidays for years, but I’m not sure the OH would like it, while I’d want to go off and do all the activities. Maybe when N’s a little older and can do more of the activities for the children’s clubs

      I’m sure he would like it if you did – he could sit by the pool whilst N is at the kids club 🙂 Even the toddlers learn to windsurf! x

    The suite looks fab! I am sure the six of is would be comfortable in there! I just think it is a bit of a shame you were all on your own in huge suites. It would have made more sense going to a family friendly hotel with your families.

      Funnily enough we all said the same – we would have loved for our families to be there! But it also meant we could talk blogging without them getting bored 😉

    The Levante Beach Resort sounds and looks like an ideal place for a holiday. With the pool and beach both close by you have the best of both worlds.

    The room looks as if it contains all that is needed for a summer break; although it’s daft that the fridge isn’t big enough for 1.5 liter bottle of water!

    From time to time things happen that can’t always be predicted (the ants and the safe), but as long as the problems are dealt with quickly and efficiently, then that is what matters. I am glad you had a nice break.

    Wow that is a huge suite! Great review with useful info, shame the fridge cant stand up a litre bottle as that is useful. Good to hear the hotel resolved any issues you had very quickly! Xx #pocolo

    Absolutely love your review! And your video is amazing. I have to go make sure I am subscribed to your YouTube channel and be a good supporter here. hahaha I hate when you think I am following someone and then I find out I am not or they tell me. *embarrassing> Love your posh accent too. So cute. Hopefully someday I will get a chance to review hotels and travel with you and all the other fantastic travel bloggers. Until they I will happily drool over your posts. #pocolo

    I am not jealous AT ALL?!!! Wow! What a fabulous prize. I wonder what the food is like in Greece for people who have to avoid gluten. I would love to take my daughter but am not sure it would be a great place to go!

      Funnily enough Katrina from Mrs Cool Bananas blog, who was with us, is gluten-free and she found the menu really good and informative for her with no problems. You should get there if you can 🙂

    Great reviews Victoria – I also read your previous one on Vevivos. I’ve been also looking at the resort on their website and saw they had scuba diving (my passion). Always great to know a place where the kids will be happy and I can spend time underwater!

    Looks fabulous. I’m thinking it will be a good choice for next years holidays after reading so many lovely things.
