“Very nice hotel :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

Just come back from a week stay at the Ibiscus. We were in the room 322, it was very nice, clear, comfortable, air conditioned with fridge. Foods, location, staff were excellent, Mandraki and Old Town are few minutes walk. We loved Ibiscus!

Room Tip: sea view room are much better

hotel rooms are very dated,but clean,radio did'nt work. television not worth watching at any time only news channels ,we thought we were getting double bed, but two singles pushed together,we went with Thompsons the booking and transfers were no problem at all very efficient in that way, but when you get to hotel you are on your own then,not a Thompson rep to be seen throughout the duration of holiday if you need any advice or help there is no one to help,the concierge staff are very reluctant to give advice about anything at all,for instance we thought while in Greece we,re go to a traditional Greek night,restaurant,we asked where, staff not interested.not at all helpful the only good thing about the hotel was food was fantastic,considering if you eat out its expensive,Thompsons have got information board on first floor but most of it is in foreign language and what is in english is only pick up time back to airport when gong home,if you need to ask anything at all about your holiday,etc you have to telephone an english phone number,from the hotel ,at your cost, one more thing nothing at all for kids except beach across from hotel

Room Tip: sea veiw rooms are a must

On arrival we were given rooms facing west overlooking the windy beach and we were satisfied with these though reception had offered us the chance to move the next day to Eli beach facing rooms at no extra charge, but as we were happy with rooms we were given saw no reason to do so.

We had a late arrival, so though we had missed dinner, there is a selection of snacks such as fruit, crisps, nuts available free at the bar, which was useful for getting bottles of mineral water, 1.5l for 1.90 euro, for our first night.
They also have a good range of beers, soft drinks, Wines, spirits and cocktails all at reasonable prices.a selection of which I've listed here to give an idea.
Small bottle Mythos beer 2.50 euro,
Mataxa 5* 3.10,
Pina Colada 4.90,
Cola 2.10,
Tea/coffee 2.10,
Glass of House wine 2.40.
During day also snacks available such as Club Sandwich 7.90.

Wifi was free with just a code needed to access which you got from the bar.

Hotel is just across the road from popular beach, with Aquarium being just a couple of minutes walk from front door as were two Modern Art Gallery's, one being located on road with palm trees behind hotel other being in side road to the right of the main hotel entrance.

Mandraki harbour, a few minutes walk. Where aside from the lovely harbour views, there are boats offering trips to Lindos, Beach Cruise's, Symi, Turkey, Scuba diving just to name a few. We did the Lindos trip, which was 25 Euro's each.

Old town was around a twenty minute walk from hotel, with lots of interesting streets to explore and places to visit Such as the Bell tower with fantastic views over the old city. Entrance 5 euros with a drink included. Archaeological museum and Grandmasters Palace shouldn't be missed with free entrance to students on production of student card otherwise 6 Euros.
No entrance fee to ruins of Temple of Apollo and the ancient stadium which are a little distance away though so we took a Taxi there as we didn't feel like walking it in the heat as it's uphill on the way, but an easy walk downhill on the way back.

I would say there was a very good choice of food available at the hotel for breakfast, with fresh fruit, pastries, cereals, continental or eggs and bacon etc. There was also a chef on duty for made to order omelettes.

Evening Buffett meals there was a variety of different dishes offered each evening, both meat and fish as well as Salad and something for vegetarians. There is a fair selection of desserts, fruit, Cake, Ice cream.

All the staff were helpful and friendly at the hotel from Reception, cleaners and Nikos and his team in the restaurant.

As we had a late flight we were able to arrange with the hotel to have a late check out from the hotel giving us to 6pm keeping one room so as to be able to shower and rest after being on the beach for 20 euros. There is a shower available on the mezzanine floor along with toilets as well.

The only minus on the rooms was that the bathrooms were a little smaller than we would of liked, but then it has to be bear in mind that it's not a 5* hotel, though we have stayed in so called 5* ones that haven't been so comfortable. Certainly there were no issues as mentioned in previous posters stays. Rooms were kept clean with sheets being changed daily, beds while firm were very comfortable with extra pillows and blankets available in the wardrobe.

All in all we would be happy to return to the Ibiscus hotel if we find ourselves looking to stay in Rhodes town.

We booked via Thomsons, flights out and back were fine and leg room wasn't an issue for us for the length of flight though very tall people might still have a problem. On arrival at Rhodes we saw a rep who pointed us outside to another rep who put us into a Taxi. Never saw another Thomson rep until arriving back at the airport at the end of the holiday. There is a notice board in the hotel for the various tour firms using the Ibiscus that gave a pick up time for the return. But no rep of Thomson's visited the hotel, there was only a telephone number if you needed help.

Water for the flight home is much cheaper to buy from the fast food stand at Rhodes airport then on the Thomson flight.

Great spot if you like to be handy for beach and don't mind a walk for town. Service good as is the food except the vegetables which are so overcooked they can spoil your experience of the dining room. Not a good choice if you want a pool or a party time - there are lots of return guests who enjoy the quiet. Also not particularly geared up for children, but great for couples who like the genuine staff.

Pleasantly surprised by just how lovely a stay we've just had. The Ibiscus was perfectly situated to explore the beautiful town of Rhodes. Room was comfortable, clean and air conditioned. Great to have fridge to keep all our drinks cold. Lovely helpful staff with nice buffet breakfast provided. Fab bar with yummy cocktails and good spot for watching the world go by!

A nice hotel and, all the staff were friendly and helpful from the cleaners to the reception and restaurant staff.
The public areas were clean and tidy. I booked a single room and was pleased to see it came with a double bed and was cleaned every day, the only downside was a very small shower which only a very small child would find comfortable to use!
The restaurant manager was very friendly and efficient as were his staff, the food was varied and on the whole very good.
Overall I enjoyed my stay and the Ibiscus Hotel was good value for money, the only downside was the shower and the fact that the hotel charges for Wi-Fi.

Room Tip: Avoid room 238 unless you are a dwarf!
