Please help two families choose a destination for a week in Greece in early July. Travelers include four adults, two boys (12 yo), and two girls (7 yo).

Most of the information I've found on places like Trip Advisor is a few years old. I'm staying in a flat in the Old Town, if it makes a difference. [more inside]

Things to do in Rhodes (ideally including dancing)

We are going to Rhodes for a week in June. What should we do and see? We are enthusiastic ballroom and Latin dancers, so we would be especially delighted if we could find somewhere where we could engage in a bit of partner dancing. Any particularly lovely spots for swimming would also be wonderful. We would love to hear about a wide range of options, though. [more inside]
