    Location 5.0 /10

    The Rodian Amathus, neighbour to the Miramare hotel, is located in Ixia, between Rhodes and Ialyssos, 2.5 miles from the fabulous historic centre of Rhodes and 6 miles from the international airport of Diagoras.
    On the north-western tip of Rhodes, the picturesque coast of Ixia hosts a seaside resort that opens onto the bay of Trianta, near a village of the same name, located in Ialissos. Lined with many modern hotels, the entire bay is a holiday destination offering high quality service. The hospitality there is very pleasant, like the gentle breeze of a meltemi wind coming from the sea. Specifically, the sea is both a real challenge for water sports lovers (sailing), and a fresh balm for others, particularly during summer. Nearby, Filerimos Hill containing the ruins of the ancient acropolis of Ialyssos and the Monastery of Panaghià, dominates the whole region. It promises romantic, peaceful strolls offering various panoramas along the coastline. On the way down to the coastal road, different entertainment opportunities await you in the direction of the seaside resort, Ixia, where there are many restaurants and shops, extending all the way to Rhodes.

    Accommodation 7.75 /10

    332 rooms are housed in the hotel, including 266 standard rooms, 28 bungalows facing the hill and 38 suites or duplex suites. Each room offers either a sea or a mountain view. All are equipped with telephone (direct access for international calls), a bathroom with a hair dryer, a bathtub or a shower, a balcony or a terrace, with individual air-conditioning, satellite TV and a safe. The rooms are simply decorated, but the electric blue jars the interior design a bit. Paintings on the walls. Room-service 24/24 hours. Too bad, the corridors sometimes seem endless. The duplex suites for families located on the fifth floor have a large terrace and a beautiful view onto the sea. But the rooms directly overlook the neighbouring rooms on the same floor and the rooms upstairs...

    Overview 8.14 /10

    Built opposite a green hill on the heights of the seaside resort in Ixia, the Rodian Amathus is a hotel in good standing, enjoying an ideal location between the mountains and the sea. You can see the Hilton Palace and the Sofitel Capsis, both neighbouring hotels. Its architecture is an unpleasant surprise, without any charm, as it does not integrate well with the landscape.
    Comfortable, well equipped and elegantly decorated, the Rodian hotel has three outdoor swimming pools, including one located on the eleventh floor, which is established on a large terrace, along the natural rocky cliffs: overlooking the beautiful ocean and the mountain. The spa, covers a large area on the ground floor and offers a variety of packages and facilities such as an indoor pool and a jacuzzi. The downside: you have to cross the highest point of the hotel in order to go from one swimming pool to another and to the main restaurant. Fortunately, three elevators are located in the facility.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    The Iliades restaurant, located on the eleventh floor, occupies three large rooms. It serves international cuisine for breakfast and dinner: the starters are offered buffet style, whereas the main dish is served at the table. The restaurant terrace has a beautiful panoramic view on the bay of Ixia. Outdoors, the bar-restaurant beside the swimming pool, on the same floor, serves Greek and Cypriot specialties in the evening. The setting is very pleasant. A natural waterfall, some 65 feet high, is found nearby. On the ground floor, the bar-restaurant, Taverna Varkarola, located near the two swimming pools, works as snack bar during the day, and offers dinner a la carte and an orchestra in the evening. Two other bars complete the picture.

    Beach 7.00 /10

    The disadvantage of the hotel. The beach is public and composed of black sand and pebbles. It is hard to walk barefoot there. Located 655 feet from the hotel, it is accessible by crossing a road or through a tunnel. But sunshades, deckchairs and towels are freely available to the hotel guests. Remember that in Rhodes most of the equipment in other hotels must be paid extra for. Customers can access the sailing club on the beach near the hotel but there is an extra payment, as it is entirely private and does not have a commercial agreement with the hotel' management.

    To know

    A rarity in Rhodes, the hotel regularly welcomes Belgian and French client, an effort deserving emphasis, and the majority of its staff speaks French.

      The Agla is a small 4-star hotel hidden away in a quiet area near the Old Town of Rhodes and just 5 minutes from the new town and its shops, making it the ideal location for combining the beach, shopping and culture. No entertainment is provided at the hotel, so it is not the best place for a long stay with children, however, the establishment is perfectly suited for couples and more generally those just passing through the town for a couple of days.

      • Value for money 6.81
      • Location 7.39

      If you had to sum up the Rhodos Beach, the first word to come to mind would be 'simplicity'. It is a reasonably-sized 3-star hotel located facing the sea (and, unfortunately, the road!) with a much more intimate feel to it than most of the island's resorts. There is no organised entertainment, and there are very few facilities, but the peace and quiet, which some may consider to be an advantage, can quickly become frustrating if you have come in search of a lively holiday!

      Suspended between sea and sky, a short distance away from the lively tourism of the village of Faliraki, the Lucas Cypria is a modern hotel perfect for families or couples anxious to preserve a modicum of peace and quiet on a lively holiday. The only downside of its location is that you won't be able to roll out of the hotel and straight onto the beach...

      • Location 7.51

      The Belvedere is located opposite Kanari beach and it is an imposing four-floor building which can initially appear somewhat off-putting. The inside of the building is also lacking in charm, though the hotel does have the significant advantage of being well located and well-equipped for a town hotel. It also offers beautiful views across the sea, particularly at sunset. You are sure to enjoy your stay here, provided that you are not too sensitive to the noise of passing cars! In fact, you will need to cross a rather busy road to reach the beach from here. In short, this hotel is to be recommended to couples (particularly the elderly) or those just passing through the town.

      Relying mainly on its all-inclusive formula, the Mareblue Cosmopolitan is a vast holiday playground. The lawns and sun decks of the hotel are filled with deckchairs and guests can enjoy seaside pleasures all day long. It is difficult to find a quiet, isolated corner in this resort. Open since 1996, this huge structure with its imposing architecture is operational during the summer season, from April to October. The clientele is made up of various different nationalities and includes lots of families.

      The 5* Ixian Grand was built in 1978 and underwent a complete makeover in 2007, which makes it hard to believe that it is over 30 years old! The new incarnation is designed to a contemporary, designer template. Just a few feet from the beach, the hotel has few sports facilities and not much in the way of organised entertainment and activities. It is therefore best suited to couples without children, or families passing through.

      Previously known as Sofitel, the Capsis has now abandoned the illustrious name without loosing any of its grandeur. It is a monumental nine-floor building which includes the largest conference centre ever to be seen in a European hotel; an important asset that is likely to inspire holidaying businessmen and women. This fully-equipped establishment is the ideal choice for couples as well as families. However, don't count on doing any activities, as these are practically non-existent...

      The Olympic Palace has such an imposing architecture that it's hard to pass by it without it catching your eye. It was built towards the end of the 70s, and from the outside it rather looks like a huge space craft. However, be assured that inside, the hotel is much more pleasant and features modern furniture. The clientele is mainly made up of families, most of which come from Europe.

      From the outside, the Rodos Palace is a massive 17-storey building, impossible to miss from the coastal road that passes in front of it. It's not the most welcoming of places at first glance, but once inside, guests remember that they shouldn't judge a book by its cover. However, the 70s inspired style is very present here, which might not be to the liking of all guests! However, despite its age, the Rodos Palace offers facilities that are suitable for guests of all ages. Interestingly, the hotel has welcomed some very famous guests, such as François Mitterrand and Margaret Thatcher.
