Commanding a dominant position on the Ixia skyline this soaring property has been a well established landmark for the past 35 years, an unusual tower block rarely seen in Greece.
With an abundance of dining and unique entertainment options it suits families and couples of all age groups although the most prestigious of clients may be disappointed at its older style decor and furnishings in some parts.
One of its unique selling points is that unlike the majority of other hotels along this coast road, the main pool is situated to the rear rather than the front, omitting the traffic noise.
A prominent, concrete block of 20-storeys hosting 386 rooms and the main facilities, attached by an 8-storey wing in the same rectangular style housing the 180 Executive VIP suites. Both have identical concrete fronted balconies topped with a single rail.
The recently added garden VIP suites and bungalow complex are more attractive angular buildings of 3-storeys in white and terracotta. Those on the ground-floor have private pools although they lack in privacy as there are no separator walls between them.
Property type: Hotel
Built Year: 1980
The impressive reception and lobby with main bar and two a la carte restaurants are rich in designer furnishings in predominantly neutral colours; these areas are both modern and sophisticated.
At the far end of the lobby, the style changes to slightly dated wicker furnishings and this leads to a central dining area reminiscent of a shopping mall with an open plan cafe, bar and eatery which are bright and airy due to a glass roof.
The main restaurant has green wicker furnishings, green flowery carpet and rainbow-coloured curtains. Play land is a large arcade with pinball, pool tables, an internet corner and its own bar.
The indoor pool is unique as it is hosted under a large glass domed roof, with a green house effect there are plants and trees growing, and this becomes an entertainment venue in the evening.
Gardens are landscaped throughout, well maintained with some lawn areas, rockeries, flower beds and mature trees and pathways full of flowering pots. The VIP garden bungalows are fronted by an attractive lagoon with their own side entrance into the lobby.
The welcoming freeform pool flows over 3 sections with rocks forming waterfalls and is bordered by the new Yacht bar and stylish terraces.
The meandering mini river that is the children’s pool is surrounded by non slip felt and is adjacent to a well stocked playground and larger than average indoor play centre.
Area Type: Rodos Palace Luxury Convention Resort is situated opposite the narrow, shingle beach of Ixia, amongst other similar styled properties and on at the junction of the main Ixia to Rhodes Town and Ixia to Faliraki roads. A bus stop is directly outside for Rhodes Town 4km away or 10km in the opposite direction towards the airport. A selection of restaurants and minimarkets are in the immediate vicinity.
