No - there is some traffic. There is a bus stop just over the road from the Afrodite, also a taxi rank. However, the road into the centre of the village is blocked to traffic at night (or it was when we were there last year)
Roda is compact and traffic flow is restricted into the village, especially in the evening. Afrodite is only about 200 metres from the centre. Everyone has different expectations and, for some, night-time comes much later than for others. There are bad reviews about most places, and my guess is that some of Afrodite's rooms are more vulnerable to noise than others. Equally, I'm sure that many have no issue with noise. As with most places in Roda, numerous visitors return year after year and would stay nowhere else.

But Steve, although I have not stayed in Roda, we have walked past the Aphrodite many times, late at night...there never seems to be any traffic to note, yes the odd car of course but its not like some places where you hear the mopeds etc continually...

Roda? Noisy!!?? You're having a larf, aint ya??!! Lovely small resort with something for everybody. Probably more noise within a hotel with all the comings and goings due to the type of construction. Oh, I forgot to mention the noise of the waves lapping at the shore...all day long!!! Drives you mad!!! Ha,Ha!!

With the exception of the taxi rank, or people walking by I can't think of anything near to the Afrodite which would impact on noise level. We stay at the Pegasus near the cross roads, I have read reports of road noise there~that is by a main road~but even there once doors were closed the noise wasn't a problem.
Just trying to be honest, Elizajay, - I can't imagine a problem, but some people are more sensitive than others and people do complain about anything sometimes. Like the guy who fell out of an olive tree, twisted his ankle and then complained that the operator hadn't told him not to climb trees.
Afrodite is at the end of the street effectively, and vehicles do turn around there throughout the daytime. At night, most of those parked on the seafront are hire cars going nowhere until the next day. In any case, people who return to Afrodite fight over who is going to get rooms on the front for the seaviews. As metaxa-time says - so that they can be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves.
