We spent one week in August at the Olympic Palace and were overall pretty satisfied.
The rooms are clean and maintained in good order, the common areas are very clean as well, the pool area is excellent, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the food is not brilliant but ok.

It does not have the woow factor nor the attention to the little details that you would expect from a 5 stars hotel, but definitely a good 4 star.

If you can choose, reserve a room with sea view: although you won't spend much time in the room, it does make a difference. The rooms on the back face some sort of very close hill so no view at all.

There is free wifi in the hall, while it is chargeable in the rooms

There is not much to do nearby the hotel, but Rhodes town is a 15 minutes ride by car or bus.

Room Tip: Sea front room if available, the back rooms have no view at all

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel on Tripadvisor.

We are very happy to read that you had an enjoyable stay in our hotel and would like to warmly thank you for praising the good accommodation standards, leisure facilities and staff’s friendliness & helpfulness; this is the best way to reward all of us working for Olympic Palace and would like to thank you once more for doing so.

Without wishing to be unsympathetic, the hotel has an official star rating of five stars awarded by the Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO) and felt sorry to note that this was not in line with your expectations of international five star hotel standards. From our side, we try our very best to offer the best possible product & service at the best possible price as recognized in the title of your review.
Regarding the free WiFi allowance, the hotel has introduced this policy this season but this is likely to be reviewed again for 2015. Free WiFi in rooms is something that we are looking into as well.
As far as the rooms on the back are concerned, kindly note that there is only a handful of rooms that are close to the hill and thus would like to dismiss the comment made.
Once again thank you for choosing Olympic Palace for your stay; we very much hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in our hotel in the not so distant future.

Best Regards,
Olympic Palace

Just back from an enjoyable two weeks at the Olympic Palace. The hotel is modern and well equipped and it's greatest asset is the staff who were always helpful and cheerful - especially the reception and restaurant staff. Our room overlooked the pool and we enjoyed an amazing fiery sunset every evening. It was exceptionally hot and we found it cooler by the beach but it would have benefited from cafe and toilet facilities by the beach.
We went on several trips with 'Manos Going' tours and would recommend boat trips to Symmi & Kalithea plus trip to mountains and butterfly valley.
The only downside was that we believed that the hotel was in, or close to, Rhodes Town. Although it is only 10 mins by taxi, or 15 on the bus , it took us over an hour and half to walk there. Rhodes old Town is delightful, especially in the evening and the next time we would prefer to stay closer to the town. That said if you want a resort holiday the Olympic has a lot to be recommended for.

Room Tip: Sea or pool view rooms better.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel on Tripadvisor.

We are delighted to read that you had found Olympic Palace to be a great hotel and that you would recommend our property to other holidaymakers looking for a resort holiday.

Thank you also for all the positive comments made; especially the ones addressed to our staff who are indeed are greatest asset.

Kindly note the resort of Ixia is the closest resort to Rhodes town, however it is still a good 4 km away from Rhodes City Centre depending on the route followed.

Once again thank you for choosing Olympic Palace for your stay; we hope you had a good holiday overall and that you would choose to visit Rhodes again in the future.

Best Regards,
Olympic Palace

We have just come back from a 1 weeks stay at the Olympic Palace in Rhodes. It was absolutely excellent and cannot really be faulted in any way. The hotel is spacious, clean and spotless, the staff very friendly and helpful.
Our advice would be to make sure you book a room with a sea view. This may be a bit more expensive, but the rooms at the back of the hotel are merely facing an escarpment with no view. As you are unlikely to spend all day in your room, this may not be a problem for you, but I would recommend sea view room on one of the upper floors and as central to the hotel as possible. The hotel is built in a crescent shape, so for example you would not want a room to the extreme left facing the hotel, as the view is seriously compromised. If you like to sit on your balcony for a while in the evening as we did then a front facing room is essential.
The pools on offer are superb and it was a real pleasure to chill out on one of the readily available sun-loungers arranged around the pools. The rooms were cleaned daily and the cleaning staff would always offer a “hello” or “good morning” to you.
The restaurant facilities are superb and there is always a very full menu for both breakfast and dinner. Even the faddiest of children would find something to please them. The restaurant staff are extremely polite, friendly and helpful, and I would commend Parascos the Maitre d’ as he shows you personally to your table on each sititng, Mouri one of the Greek waitresses and Kyrie the head waiter is also highly attentive. You certainly don’t feel rushed or herded about in any way. A lot of the waitresses give a friendly smile and are Czech in the main.
We did half board, but tended to eat lunch in the poolside restaurant. Again, the food and service is superb and cannot be faulted in any way for the price. Also, the entertainments crew should be commended and again, they are very friendly and take an almost personal interest in their guests. There is usually some evening entertainment on and pool activities during the day.
Now the only slight downer is this. The hotel is a large one of several that faces the ocean. However, its located (although set well back) from the main road to Rhodes town. The beach is pebbly so we found we were better off poolside than beach side. If you want a walk of an evening there is really nowhere to go other than walking along the main road whilst being accosted by restauarant people trying to drag you in.
There are kiosk-type supermarkets close by, so water and provisions outside of the hotel are convenient and not too expensive. You need to buy the water and would not recommend drinking the tap water. But if you want a cup of tea in your room, the only milk seemingly available is over-priced (illogically) UHT milk. 1ltr was 2.60 euros.
Other than that Rhodes town is very attractive and my wife and I walked back from there after getting a taxi in and it took us about 50 minutes to walk back to the hotel at a leisurely pace. All in all for the price I would thoroughly recommend this hotel/resort for a good family holiday package.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the upper floors as central within the hotel as possible with a sea view.

Dear Valued Guest,
Thank you ever so much for taking the time to review our hotel.
We are delighted to read that you had a fantastic stay with us and would like to warmly thank you for all the positive comments made, especially the ones addressed to our staff.
Thank you also for praising the hotel’s cuisine and the service levels; Paraschos and his team will be undoubtedly very grateful to hear your opinion on the service delivered.
Kindly note the beaches in the whole western part of the island are all with pebbles as opposed to the eastern part and can only apologize should this information was not brought to your attention at the time of booking. Having said that, we would like to assure you that the beaches in Ixia are crystal clear, as in most parts of the Island.

Once again thank you for choosing to stay at the Olympic Palace and very much hope to have the pleasure to welcome you back soon in our resort.

Warm Regards,
Olympic Palace

We spent 5 days in this hotel, and we found it good value for money, the food in the hotel is diverse and everyone can find something to eat, would be happy to see more healthy options, but ok.
The hotel is a short drive from the airport.Most of it renovated, nice lobby with free wi fi, great views from 8 floor on the sunset.
We pools were great, the prices next to the pool int restaurant were reasonable, the mini golf is a nice attraction, the animation team tried they best to make everyone happy, loved the Greek night and dancing on the 8 floor, the minidisco was nice, the cabaret was a bit too much, in my opinion, since kids were watching it also.
Our room was old and not renovated, but it had two stores and a balcony, a separate living room, so it made up for the old and very humid room, the bath certainly needs renovation, and the bath floor, inside e bath was really slippery while the ceiling was too low.
Still, we enjoyed
The elevators don't have air conditioning, so it was bit annoying, also the lights in the floor are lit only in the evening, while it's quite dark. (Second floor)
The stuff is attentive for your needs, please note the pool towels , you need to keep them or a 20 eur fine is coming.
The old and new town are 8 eur drive by taxi, also a bus stop is outside the hotel.
Lots of shops and restaurants outside the hotel, most of the restaurants have playground for the little ones.
I would be happy to recommend this place since this gives you good value for your money

Room Tip: High floors with see view
