No weather data found for [, ”Rhodes”, ”Rhodes”, horizontal]
A standard all-inclusive property which is geared towards the family market, with modern internal areas due to the recent refurbishment. The grounds are neat but the pool area requires some upgrading.
A very relaxed resort feel and although there are not an abundance of dining options, the main restaurant has been cleverly split into 3 sections offering Chinese, Greek and Italian.
Whilst in a slightly remote part of the resort, amenities can be reached by a short walk or the convenient public transport system.
All buildings are freshly painted in yellow and white with black, ornate iron balconies. The main building is angular and graduates back at each level into the mountainside, disguising its 8 floors.
A further 8 blocks of annexes and bungalows are spread throughout the grounds towards the main road and are of an older style in roughcast concrete.
Property type: Hotel
The attractive marble reception, with characteristic pillars and grand chandelier features striped couches in beiges and browns. From the lobby, the large main bar is modern with a games area, plasma TV’s, trendy furnishings and decor in brown and orange.
The restaurant is located at the other side of reception and has 3 distinctive cooking stations featuring Chinese, Italian or Greek food. The decor of these areas is representative of the country it features although the furnishings are standard throughout with modern dark brown tables and chairs.
Grounds are well maintained, with expanses of lawns, mature trees, attractive flowerbeds and urns, amongst the neat, well signposted pathways.
The pool area is slightly dated in appearance with its red tiles and only has metal stepped entry, but features a larger than average children’s pool with high separating balustrade.
There is good sized pool bar serving snacks adjacent with decking and shaded pergolas. A large private parking area is opposite the main entrance along with the tennis courts.
Area Type: At the start of Ixia, 3km from Rhodes Town and 1km from the centre of the resort, the property is located on the main coastal road, opposite the narrow shingle beach. Some of the bungalow buildings are almost on the main road whereas the main building and the entrance is in a slightly elevated position 200m inland. In the immediate vicinity is a bus stop is for Rhodes Town and Ixiam, a bar, car hire shop and small mini market.
