We had a wonderful time here in Rhodos but more especially at the Alila hotel! It will be hard for us to find another hotel that equals or is even better than this one in the future. The structure is very recent and the decoration is really pretty and modern. The hotel is very well located, not far from faliraki, about 5-10 minutes by taxi and not even distant from Rhodos city, about thirty minutes away. The Aegean sea is amazing so as the pebble beach. Just near by, between the Kalithea terms and the hotel there is a nice spot called Nicholas Beach, there you can sunbathe on the rocks. A great special "parakalo" to Milia (receptionnist) who was so kind with us! But we thank in general all the staff for their helpfullness and kindness. Hats off to the owner of the hotel who lended more than ones a hand to his staff when there was to much work in the main restaurant! Most of the people here on tripadvisor have already mentionned the most important and positive points so I won't repeat all over again but I will just agree. Now, I just want to underline my appreciation for the large variety of food. The main restaurant is although my favourite of the 8 restaurants available. You can try diffrent types of cuisines, like for example the obvious greek kitchen, but also italian, asian, mexican... We stayed in the room 256 on the second floor and i recommend this one. Mostly quiet and with a very nice sea view. In the evening we occasionaly went to Faliraki or Rhodos city, because there were a lot of pubs, and shops. Sometimes we stayed at the hotel but here is the first negative point in my view... the animation. It was most of the time really boring, people are all just sitting there listening to a band, I hoped so much for a greek night animation but in on a 1 week stay we didn't had that chance, maybe you could organise it ones a week so that each of the customer can have the possibility to have a dance on the sirtaki! During the day the animation are ok expect that most of the animator are russian and as most of the hotel customers are russian, they very often give the instructions in russian. That's a bit mean... Besides that they are kind. The animators have ones organized a night out in Faliraki. They came to ask the young people to go out with them. Nice idea although i recommend to the parents to join their children or at least not to leave their girls go on their own. Better being cautious.
So to conclude i would definitly recommend the Alila hotel to anybody who wants to visit this beautiful and historical island! And if we have the opportunity to go back we will certainly book here again!
