We stayed in one of the suites with a rooftop pool in June 2019, the pool was a lot bigger than I expected. Lovely accommodation. We arrived too late for dinner so they left us some sandwiches, fruit and a bottle of wine in the room. Staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. Out of the 4 restaurants the only one we weren't keen on was the Vis a Vis, the main buffet one, I didn't find the food that good, but being in the Suites we had our own restaurant called A La Zonia, which served a buffet breakfast and a 5 course dinner with a glass of Processo included, portions are small, you get a choice of 2 things per course, but I found it more than adequate for me and the manager was a character with a dry sense of humour. We also booked one night for the Degu 7 (fish) which has a set menu of 6 courses with wine included, very good and lastly the Greek Taverna, Milonges, also good food. There was either a disco or live entertainment every night at the bar next to the Milonges. The day we left we had a night flight, they gave us a room at no extra cost and let us have dinner in our usual restaurant also at no extra cost. Rhodes Town is nice and quant, worth a visit. Only half an hour transfer to the airport, which is the worst run airport I've ever been to, ok at check-in and security, but when you fnd yourself in Duty Free allow time to get through Passport Control to your gate, absolute bedlam the day we were there, as people didn't realise, some people didn't make our fight due to this.
We have just returned from a weeks holiday here - 6/6/19-13/6/19. ALL staff were friendly, polite and helpful. Hotel is situated on a small pebbly beach, sea rather hard to get into - due to being pebbly both on the beach and in the sea. Stunning views of the sea and round too Rhodes. We stayed in room 163, well equipped, ground floor, over looking gardens. There was some noise from the road, but nothing to note. We arrived late, so very welcomed to have fruit and sandwiches in the room. Food was fine, good choice of meats, fish, vegetables, local cuisine and themed nights. Great choice of sweet puddings Good selection of cocktails. During the day I attended aqua aerobics - this was well organised and had a big turnout. Evening entertainment is fairly low key, dancers were very good. As were the Greek band which played for over 2 hours over the lunchtime. We had a massage whilst here, which was relaxing with friendly staff. Hotel gym is small, and has all you need for a holiday workout !!!! Taxi rank is nearby, which we used to go to Rhodes Old Town. A short walk up the road takes you to Ixia town, with shops and bars.

A 5 stars hotel may have rooms of different levels but all must be at least 5 stars, this does not happen with this hotel. In the areas closer to the pools, the rooms are seemingly 5 stars but the rooms that are at the back of the hotel are most definitely not 5 stars. It is as if this area was second class, as it lacks maintenance in the corridors and in the rooms (see photos). We stayed in a room facing the street and the noise from early mornings sometimes bothered us, the room should have at least double windows. The room was not bad, but a bit too dark and it had a few electrical outlets. It lacked some maintenance as well. Staff - We were treated very well, this is a differential point in this hotel. Food - We had full board and the food, in general, was very good. One thing was that most of the desserts contained cream, it lacked more variety of fruits and (if possible that they were already sliced) and more variety on desserts without cream. Drinks - In the all-inclusive, you are entitled to alcoholic beverages, but these are generic, ie not branded ( which was a surprise!). The pool/beach area is very good with chairs for everyone and a well-kept garden. Wellness - In my point of view, the indoor pool and sauna should not be charged separately.
Just had a week staying in this hotel with my wife and our stay was all inclusive. We had a sea view deluxe room with a bath jacuzzi on the balcony (which we didn't use). Room was spotless and was cleaned everyday. Food was excellent but could sometimes be samey but the choice was good. We had a meal one night at the Molingnes Restaurant with our voucher (glad we didn't have to pay, wouldn't have been worth the money). Sun lounges were good and plenty, shouldn't be the need to reserve with towels on but people did. Would recommend buying sea shoes to get across pebbly beach into the sea. Pool was lovely. Poolside bar drinks tended to be stronger than main bar, where if you wanted named brands you had to pay for. All staff were friendly and helpful. Because of our room overlooking pool and poolside bar, where the "entertainment was", people was loud when leaving for the night with no regard for the elderly guests who retire earlier to bed. We noticed after the weekend newcomers there seemed to be a change in clientele, it was as if thomas cook had sold some cheaper holidays as this sort of clientele would be better at benidorm not a Sentido where we have stayed at several and they are usually a chilled out hotel without the need for working man club entertianment. I would say this hotel is a 4 star, to be 5 it would need to upgrade the sun lounges with pads and to have waiter service to the sun lounges and to offer branded drinks to all. All in all not a bad hotel but if we were to return to Rhodes we would stay at the Sentido Port Royal, a 5 star, in Kolymbia where we have stayed previuosly, it's more chilled out. By the way we are in our early 50's.
What a wonderful week we had at the Ixian Grand Hotel! We arrived on Sat 25th, staying for 1 week. We'd booked a deluxe sea view room and ended up on the 2nd floor with a fantastic view! We were welcomed with sandwiches and fizz in our room as we'd missed dinner and only got to see the view for the first time on the Sunday! It truly was stunning. The room was modern, clean and obviously refurbished recently! It was nice to have a hotel room with a sofa and plenty of storage space! The shower room was good and plenty of good light for makeup etc! The jacuzzi bath in the room was lovely too... Due to the water shortage in Rhodes I only had one bath (my choice, not because there was no water). Sitting with that view 😍 The rest of the hotel felt clean and presented well. The pools were lovely (if a little cold but lovely on a nice day) and we didn't struggle to get sun loungers. People do 'reserve' them as not all of them have umbrellas but if you aren't fussy about needing shade you'd be fine! It can be breezy due to the proximity to the sea. The hotel shop sells the large towel/sunlounger pegs at a reasonable price but if you already have some, take them with you! The breeze was lovely and kept us from feeling too hot! The aqua aerobics instructor was great. She ran a class on most days and I've never seen an aerobic class so busy! One day the pool was literally full, which is testament to her enthusiasm and also the lack of 'scouting' for willing participants. It's always uncomfortable when the 'entertainment' team try to drum up participants and it was nice that she didn't need to do this! We booked a massage each in the spa and this was lovely. It's relatively expensive but nice facilities. It did feel a little rushed however (in terms of getting in and out before and after the massage). There is a gym (we didn't use it) and if you need somewhere to shower and change before your flight home (rather than paying €80 to use a change over room) it's fine. Not especially private though for the shower! The pool bar was excellent. Although it could get busy Stelios and the other bar staff were always really friendly. The cocktails were ummmm colourful.... 😂 But some very tasty ones! Good local spirits and beer too. The Trumans bar was good too. I found their cocktails slightly weaker than those Stelios made so preferred the pool bar where I felt like I was having a decent drink. It would be nice if both bars served crisps/bar snacks with early evening drinks (they did sometimes later in the evening) so a pre-dinner drink could become more of a ritual 😊 My husband and I both enjoyed the food. Most nights there was a good selection of options and if there was nothing you fancied the pizza, salads and breads were still available and yummy! I really enjoyed some of the authentic Greek dishes and for en-mass catering felt the team did a superb job! Much better than some AI I have been too. Breakfast was a little samey but the museli and low fat milk and yoghurt was a good addition for someone trying to be good, sometimes 😊 We had one meal in the Milonges restaurant! The food was great and the staff wonderful. We booked it for our wedding anniversary meal and after the starter my husband became unwell (not food related at all) the staff went into full emergency mode with the waitresses, Stelios and one of the lovely porters (I can't remember his name, I'm sorry) helping carry him to the first aid room. Kiki (front of house, customer services) was fab and called an ambulance and we were taken swiftly to hospital. Kiki was wonderful and called to check on us. On our return they reopened the kitchen and cooked us the rest of our anniversary meal and presented us with a small mousse cake with a candle. A really really touching thought given how stressful our evening had been! They called to check on my husband the following morning too. They really couldn't have been more helpful! All round a fantastic break. The beach location and it's proximity to Rhodes is great (I didn't mind the 15min bus ride) and if you want a taxi it'd be around €11 which isn't bad at all. It's the best AI hotel we've been too I think, and we are absolutely going to go back again next year. I booked through Travel Counsellors and I'm so glad they found us this hotel! What a real treat!
Just arrived home after 7 days all inclusive. Beautiful hotel, swimming pool area spotless and easy to get a bed with an umbrella. I’m very picky over my food but I didn’t starve and husbands plate was piled high evrry meal so he enjoyed it. Can I particularly give a shout out to the sweet trolley team, best selection and quality from any hotel so far. And also the girl who does the aqua aerobics was amazing, seemed to be actually trained rather than just someone shoved in on a whim. But quiet in the evenings and surrounding area is ok if u are relatively fit and mobile. Still, a great break
Cleaning serice - generally hard to say that in this hotel is something as cleaning service, they only changed towels and made the bad, we travel around whole world and we have never met so bad cleaning service as in this hotel. Hotel administration - they have no pro client attitude, not helpfull at all Standard of the room - very poor, very old and destroyed furniture, bathroom needs refreshing and good cleaning the problem was also that we were located close to street and the noise was disturbing. The hall and area for everone was fine, the meal was quite good. We are very disapointed about the room standard. On the last day we payd 100€ to stay longer and they only changed the towels, bad was not made and trash stayed in room... it is not what you expect from 5 stars hotel...
Just recently returned home from our lovely holiday, weather was beautiful all week room was wonderful,we had booked the deluxe sea view room which had a bath on the balcony. Great view, nice big room, clean, modern and light. Cleaners came in every day and evan if you didnt want them they would check and see if you wanted any clean towls, water, milks tbags and coffee ect. Nothing was to much trouble for them at all and all very friendly. Reception staff i thought was great,very helpful. Hotel it's self is really nice could always get a sun lounger but did get busy quickly so dont know how easy it would be to get one in the middle of season. AllInclusive was okay but the food for me wasnt a 5* was barely warm, but the breakfast did seem to get hotter as the days went on. Food also very repetitive. Drinks unfortunately not great the cocktails wasnt great at all, i think 100% the alcohol is watered down!! To have a better cocktail was €9.50 which was quite expensive considering the prices in town. Entertainment was ok, not the greatest but least it was something, but what i saw wasnt the best. All inclusive didnt start till 10am which is pretty shocking when you could be down by the pool or beach at 8.30/9am ive never been to an all inclusive where ive had to wait till 10am, i paid for two coffees at 9.45am and it cost me €8.60!! the beach was nice shame was pebbles but still nice, could be abit cleaner if im honest the top end was filthy but not the hotels fault. If you turned right out of the hotel you come into a small town/village with taverna's bars and shops this is probabaly a good 10minute walk if not longer beware also stray dogs lerking! To the left is a few minutes walk to a couple of tavernas shops bars then further down the road is ixia then rhodes town. I would advise a taxi about an hour walk. I wouldnt say the hotel is situated in the ideal spot but if you dont mind walking or paying for taxis then you'll be okay. Rhodes old town is well worth a visit hectic but nice. Taxi €11. There is a taxi station at the end of the hotels road. There are some toilets on the lower level of the hotels main lounge area they are so dark its actually pretty wierd i dont understand why they are like this? I also herd other people talking about this too. When we checked out we was aloud to use the gym changing shower areas, cant grumble as it did the job but not private in the slightest i felt quite uncomfetable. I think the staff work really hard and make this hotel for me, evan the women in the shop was nice. Managers i have to say didnt seem to smile much. I would recommend this hotel but if i was to come back to rhodes i would stay in a different hotel.
A beautiful hotel, all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was very large and we had a great view of the swimming pools and the beach. The swimming pools are lovely, one pool was sea water and the other one was fresh water. We went all-inclusive, there was a bar near the pool and also one in the reception area, drinks were all free so in the week we were there we never spent any money. There are several tours on offer at reasonable prices of which we went on three and thoroughly enjoyed. The waiters and waitresses were very helpful, Manolis, Kostas and the Captain Stepano especially. I would love to visit again, maybe next year but for 10 days and not just a week. Thank you to you all.
