“Wonderful hotel”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

I have just returned from Rhodes where myself and my husband stopped at the Ixian Grand, we had a slight mishap with our first room and the staff reacted brilliantly. We were moved to another room which was definitely 5 star. The hotel is situated on the beach, the sunset is spectacular. I would recommend this hotel to anybody. In fact I am looking at rebooking for late September.

Room Tip: if you can afford it book a suite, they are fantastic

We travelled as two couples to celebrate our wedding anniversary in June 2014 - overall an excellent holiday with stunning views from the bedrooms and from the main restaurant
Hotel is primarily suitable for couples however there were also couples with young children and couples with adult children who all appeared to enjoy the experience
This Hotel would not really suit couples with teenage children - no watersports, no organised pool activities, no childrens club, no disco - any typical teenager would be bored
Entertainment is limited to Greek dancing Greek music and Greek singing on different nights so it suits older couples really - a bit lacking in variety but very nice
This type of Hotel offering all inclusive service is not really five star - there is no room service and the meals are buffet type - although the bar is open from 10am to midnight you cannot get a cup of tea to take to your room outside of those hours - so this is not really five star
But I would give it a very good four star - staff are very friendly - bar staff are overworked but very cheerful all the time - we had a medical emergency needing hospital treatment and the reception dealt with it admirably and promptly
Not much to do in the Hotel except eat drink and sit by the two large pools (they also have a childrens pool and a small pool) - there are however enough sun loungers for everyone with a few left over which is always a good point
The small a la carte restaurant is superb but you are only allowed to use it once a week due to pressure of numbers - otherwise we might have used it everyday
On the negatiive side the drinks are all "local" drinks on an all inclusive basis so the whiskey is not the best and the wine is just table wine - but then what do you expect if you go all inclusive
Also on the negaive side the free wifi does not reach the bedrooms - you have to go and sit in the reception area - however I did find out that the pool bar also had wifi so you could sit on the sunloungers and use your tablet - I really do not understand why Hotels that call themselves five star cannot manage free wifi throughout
We went on a trip out to Symi - a boat trip to next island - booked through hotel reception - absolutely excellent trip - Symi is delightful - reception was able to offer us just the boat tickets without the tour guide so we paid half the price that people paid for an organised trip with a guide - we went on exactly the same boat and saw exactly the same places - without the hassle of a guide

We spent in the hotel already 3 vacations - in the suite 348. Hotel is nice, really wort of 5 *, close to the pebble beach, 2 swimming pools and several minutes by car to Yalisos - where are many shops and Old Town - mediavel town with a lot of shops and tavernas. Excellent holidays ....room is large, clean and comfortable, nice balcony and a private swimming pool - really relaxing days off. The restaurant A La Zonia is a unique restaurant with a beatiful view to the pools and sea ,the food was great. Fast service and Christos and ladies (Katarina, Evi) always smiling and very pleasant. Room was cleaned every day, without any problems, the staff did really a great job. We especially appretiated cooperation with Alexandros (Suites service manager) who really cares a lot about the comfortability and satisfaction of the visitors. Charismatic man who also welcomes guests in restaurant A La Zonia giving to this place his special spirit :)
We definitelly will come back again and would recommend this place to everybody, who wants to rest in a beatiful peaceful place.

I've just spent a week in this hotel and can not sing it's praises highly enough. The rooms were large and very clean and the beds comfy. The pool was never too busy and there was always sun loungers available, with the towels ready to collect each morning from the pool bar. Couldn't really be any closer to the beach unless you were in it, meaning you could make use of the sea or pools at any time. The bar staff at both the pool bar and main bar were always helpful and happy to make up a wide range of drinks and neither bar was shy on their measures. The restaurant food was of a high standard and a wide range of different foods each day, you could easily eat for a week and not repeat a meal. The staff on reception are warm and friendly and happy to help with any questions, offering local knowledge and any tourist info about the island. Taxis were booked and arrived within minutes to the hotel. Overall I will miss this hotel and will definitely be suffering holiday blues back at work in a few days.

Had a week here in May, thought it was an extremely attractive and week kept hotel. Food was ok, the usual you would expect from a buffet. We did have a night in the a la carte restaurant which was really good, so nice to get served, and the quaility of the food and wine was excellent. We were disappointed with the size of our room (No.120) it was quite tight length wise, especially when looking from the pool the other rooms were much larger.

Room Tip: pool view is terrific but keep away from room 120 far too small.

we loved this hotel. the style of hotel and rooms are modern, minimalistic, but also cozy. it is very comfortable that the hotel has its own beach you go straight, wtihout passing the street (as for most hotels in ixia and yalysos you have to pass street before you arrive to beach).
the structure of park, swimming pool, outside bar, trees are very nice and beautiful. my taste :)
the dinner was good, plenty of different tasty food.
position - is a bit far away from the city centre, but we had a car so it is easy reachable and from airport and to go to Rhodes city centre.
the rooms are not so clean as in the corners you could see the dusts,
funny thing is that the hairdryer was in the second table drawer, that was strange.
if you like holidays just to stay and relax in hotel, you can choose this structure, as it has everything to offer. we have driven all around the island, but to say truly there are not so many things to see.

Room Tip: with the view to the sea
