Hotel Rodos Palace Hotel 5 star
Easyexperts
786 TRIANTON AVENUE Rhodes, Greece
Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 6.5 /10

    Located on the western coast of the island of Rhodes, the Rodos palace stands on the coastal road, facing the beach of Ixia. The city of Rhodes is only 10 minutes away by car (2.5 miles). As for the airport, it is approximately 6 mi away and will take around 20 minutes to reach by car.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    With 785 guest rooms, this is not exactly your small family establishment! However, it offers all sorts of accommodation solutions, and in various locations on site. Most of the rooms occupy the hotel's two buildings. They're each decorated in a different fashion but all share a marked 70s style. The colours don't match and the setting seems a little disparate. However, in terms of amenities, everything is provided: 24/7 room service, a free safe, air-conditioning, a TV... The more recent suites occupy 1-storey bungalows located in the garden and offer a much more modern setting. Most come with a swimming pool at the front, and a balcony at the back. They all include a kitchen and a lounge. Regrettably, the toilet and bathroom are not separate.

    Overview 7.50 /10

    The Rodos Palace opened in 1974 and is composed of two huge buildings, one 17 storeys high and the other 7 storeys high. Additionally, smaller, 2-storey units are dotted around here and there in the garden. In terms of surface area and the number of rooms, this hotel is one of the biggest in Rhodes. The hotel as a whole is very well looked after, but especially in terms of the furniture, it could do with a bit of a makeover. The lobby is huge but badly lit. It features a big mosaic on its floor, and the decor is primarily made up of window displays of antique objects. Beyond this area you'll find a succession of little lounges and dining rooms that all boast a different look. Unfortunately, too many different styles mixed together make the setting a little overdone. The indoor swimming pool lies under a huge rotunda, where all sorts of events are held. The main outdoor swimming pool is big, but not big enough, it seems, with regard to the number of rooms. Just next to it there is a children's pool with a slide. The hotel claims to have a spa, but in fact it's more akin to a gym, open to all. From the changing room, you may proceed to the jacuzzi, the sauna or the Turkish baths. There are also two treatment rooms used for massages, and the treatments on offer are reasonably priced.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    In terms of the food on offer, the choice is unbelievably wide! There are six restaurants, each of which offers a different type of cuisine, served à la carte or as a buffet. The Rodos Palace doesn't really include a main restaurant, as meals can be taken in various different places around the hotel. Breakfast is served as a buffet at the La Terrasse restaurant that looks out onto the outdoor swimming pool. You can also start your day at the Café Gallery, which is described as boasting a French café-inspired style. For lunch, head for the Pool Restaurant, which has both an indoor and an outdoor section, and where meals are served à la carte. There is more choice for eating in the evening. The Rôtisserie puts on an International buffet with a different theme every evening. It occupies a big room with modern furniture and is one of the hotel's more enjoyable restaurants. The Ambrosia and the Castellania are à la carte restaurants that open in the evening. Last but not least, there is the 12Nissia, the hotel's gastronomic restaurant. The chef prepares French cuisine, served à la carte, and prices range from £18.00 to £36.00.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    As is the case with many beaches in Rhodes, Ixia is a public beach. The hotel does provide its own deckchairs and parasols but you'll have to pay extra to use them. The Rodos Palace has an underground passage that runs under the coastal road and leads to the beach. The beach is wide and long and there's plenty of space on which to stretch out. It is mainly covered with pebbles, however the colour of the water is very inviting. The bay is exposed to the wind, meaning it is a paradise for windsurfers. The hotel does not have its own water sports club, but there is one nearby, which you can use for an extra charge.

    To know

    Internet access is provided but guests have to pay for this service.
    The hotel is open during the summer season only, from April until October.

        Bel hôtel propre et très bien situé face à la mer et près de la petite nationale qui relie la ville de Rhodes à l'aéroport. On y mange bien et le personnel est professionnel et sympathique. Hôtel international, il faut s'exprimer en anglais si on veut être bien compris. C'est un excellent point de départ pour visiter l'île. La plage publique (sable et galets surtout) à 50m de l'hôtel est accessible par un tunnel sous la route et on peut louer un transat et un parasol pour 5 euros la journée.

      • Advantages

      • Disavantages

        très grosse structure, 3 ascenseurs pour 17 étages, ça bouchonne (surtout quand il y en a un en panne)

        Énorme hôtel où l'activité ne cesse d'être présente. Mais sa gestion est très bien huilée. Deux restaurants, où l'attente est quasi nulle. Chambre correctement insonorisée. Vue sur la plage...et la route ! Situation idéale, à 20min de Rhodes centre. Loueur de scooter juste à côté, idéal pour parcourir l'île de façon à profiter du vent, de pouvoir faire des arrêts faciles dans des criques, plages, faire des photos de paysage, etc.

      • Advantages

        Restauration multi-culturel pour convenir à tous. Ménage convenablement fait chaque jour. Disponibilité des agents de l'hôtel. Petit magasin accolé à l'hôtel pour les courses rapides et les désirs immédiats.

      • Disavantages

        Les ascenseurs : seulement trois, donc vite surchargés. La moquette dans notre chambre. La balance payante pour faire peser les valises avant d'aller prendre l'avion du retour et se rassurer.

        Situation de l'hôtel est idéal 1 h de marche de Rhodes centre, arrêt de bus a coté,location de scooters et voitures conseillés pour visiter l'île. Piscines et jardins extérieures très agréables et bien entretenus avec une petite chapelle pour mariage que nous avons eu la chance de voir le samedi.

      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.

      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 clientele here is essentially European and includes mainly German, Italian and French holidaymakers. It opened in 1976 but looks younger than its years thanks to its good upkeep and the renovation work carried out in 2010. However, the decor is quite disapointing due to its lack of modernity, but the level of comfort is entirely adequate. The hotel is open during the summer season only, from April to October.
