Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Nathalie is a small guesthouse located in a residential area of the village of Ixia. As an adorable little family establishment, it reminds you of the golden years of the island's resorts. Run by a Greek-Scottish couple, it is the perfect place for a holiday dedicated to rest and relaxation; there is no beach, nor much in the way of entertainment, but that doesn't matter! The Nathalie is a charming, moderately-sized guesthouse which is highly recommended for couples who are looking for a little intimacy.

    Location 3.6 /10

    This establishment will also put your sense of direction to the test. Finding the hotel Nathalie in the heart of Ixia can prove to be a tricky task. Ixia is small and lively seaside resort in the northern part of Rhodes and there are numerous hotels along its beaches. The Nathalie, however, has opted for a calm area, far from the sea, but also just as far from the frenzy usually found in resorts. It is a few ounces of tranquillity in a rather noisy universe! Indeed, it is only a few minutes away from the restaurants and boutiques of the city centre and just as close to beaches... Furthermore, the hotel benefits from an excellent location on the coast, which is a perfect starting point for many excursions.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    60 rooms, no more, no less... except, of course, for the rooftop apartment. It is not hard to understand why these rooms are going like hot cakes! Four different categories are available: single, double, triple, or quadruple, and all of the rooms include a desk, a bedside table, twin beds, a television, a fridge, air conditioning (£5 per day), a kettle, a telephone, a long balcony with a table and chairs, and a little bathroom fitted with a shower, hospitality products, and a hair dryer. Unfortunately, the storage units are rather small. Both the room and the bathroom are tiled. As far as the interior is concerned, the owners have opted for tasteful simplicity: no bedspread, white walls adorned with photos, and green or grey furniture... Safes are available at the reception for a weekly fee of approximately 9£..

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Despite its size, the hotel has not forgotten the most important thing for a great holiday, namely the swimming-pool (chlorine-free), the deck-chairs, the pool-table and the poolside bar. To compensate for the lack of sports' facilities here, the owners offer to organise a wide variety of sporting activities for you, such as horse riding, cycling, etc. Although it does not offer quite as many facilities as a real resort, the Nathalie has put a lot of effort in its interior decoration. the owner has found many bargains that she proudly exhibits in the stairway, the entrance hall or the corridors.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    Every detail has been thought-out here, including the food. There is a pretty dining room that can seat 60 guests. It has wooden chairs and tables and chequered table cloths where customers can enjoy a home-made breakfast: cakes, croissants, biscuits, toast, cereal, ham, eggs, fruit, etc. Otherwise guests can also enjoy their meal on the cosy little terrace in front of the hotel. For other meals, the poolside bar proposes a couple of snacks: sandwiches, salads, paninis, Mexican tortillas, etc. In the evening, the bar is turned into an a la carte Greek restaurant. The lobby bar serves refreshing drinks and hot beverages.

    To know

    The Nathalie opened in 1986 and used to be a two-floor traditional hotel. However, over the years, the owners have put in a lot of work to change its image. A third floor has been added (but there is no lift!) and the interior includes numerous Grecian elements. Solar panels have also been installed... In addition to the 60 rooms, the owners also propose a charming rooftop apartment. The only available option here is 'bed and breakfast'.

      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 Blue Horizon Palm Beach Club opened in 1986. Thankfully, it was renovated in 2002 when it changed hands. As a result, it resembles many of the other clubs on the island, the only difference being that it has exploited three major assets: the wind, the waves and the F2 Pro Centre, a windsurfing centre which is only found in four other parts of the world. It is therefore the perfect haven for windsurfing enthusiasts!

      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.

      Located on the banks of the wild and beautiful Aegean Sea, the Sunshine Vacation Club is a rather charmless establishment which is nevertheless ideal for families looking for somewhere with sports facilities, organised entertainment and plenty of opportunity to laze around. Having said that, the hotel should improve over the coming years, with two new buildings planned for 2010. The 20 new guest rooms already available set the tone for the rest of the complex: refined and contemporary!

      • Value for money 6.68
      • Location 3.62

      The Avra Beach is an all-inclusive hotel, so it's easy to spot those staying here by the famous plastic wristbands they wear. The facilities seem pleasant enough, although the communal areas are far too small given that the hotel has a total capacity of 500 people. There are people literally everywhere, so if you're agoraphobic you'd best keep away! Add to this the ridiculous volume of the music played at the poolside and it'll come as no surprise that this isn't the place to stay if you're looking for a quiet spot to relax. The hotel attracts both young people and families but very few couples. Entertainment is put on throughout the day, so if you're after peace and quiet you'd best look elsewhere!

      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.
