THey are pretty hospitable. Odysseus has a great time with them. King Alkinoös offers up his daughter's, Nausikaa, hand in marriage.Odesseus politely declines but King Alkinoös still wants to help Odysseus get home. The Phaeacians also love their Gods,

“Tell your squires to mix some more wine so that we can make a fresh libation, to Zeus the Thunderer, patron of suppliants, who deserve respect. And let the housekeeper give him (Odysseus) a meal from all she has available.”

The Gods loved this!
