“Great hotel - highly recommended”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

We have just returned from two weeks here. Excellent hotel! We chose half-board as there are not a lot of restaurants close by, although there are many a 10-minute walk away. Both the on-site restaurants are excellent – Nikos & Alex especially looked after us very well indeed. Hotel has lovely gardens, with a play area for younger children. The main pool uses sea-water which is nice, and there is a small shaded pool too. Our garden-view room was spacious, with a balcony that has the sun in the morning through to lunchtime. Other rooms overlook the pool area. The breakfast choice is huge, catering for everyone’s needs. The beach is about 5 minute’s walk away, but note that there is a busy road to cross to get there. We found better beaches on the east coast of the island though. Buses are cheap and reasonably frequent – a ride into Rhodes town is 1.60 euros. A taxi costs 8 euros.
The best points:
. Friendly staff who want to look after you
. The pool and the surrounding area
. The bar service and evening entertainments
. The on-site mini-supermarket – very useful
. The restaurants and snack bar – highly recommended
. Plenty of wardrobe space with loads of hangers
Points to note:
. The air conditioning is not available until 15th June although a fan was provided for us on request.
. The beds are very firm.
. The room key fob activates electricity in room using a powerful magnet This could seriously effect electronic equipment. The analogue display in my watch was stopped by it!
. There is no indoor pool.
. There is no tea/coffee facility in the room, nor can an Iron be used there.
. Internet use is chargeable.
. Biting bugs are plentiful at this time of the year – take precautions.
Summary
. Despite the points to note we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We strongly recommend it based on our experiences. Half-board worked really well for us and allows you to take your meal at lunchtime or in the evening.

Room Tip: Garden view is quieter than pool view during the day. There are some corner rooms which are nice if...

The Dionysos hotel in Ixia is one of the best hotels we have stayed in! The service is very good, the location is good, the staff is very helpful and polite.... The only negative would be the service at the poolbar, when we came in as a group of ten wanting to eat at the same table.... The staff was very reluctant to make the correct arrangement for our group. At a later time during that week, we booked the table for ten, and it was no problem. The food was OK, but we all agreed it is overprized and perhaps not as good as it is at some of our favourite spots in Rhodes town!
The bar does need a good lesson in making drinks, as they get everything readymade and very thinned out! We decided it was safer to order things like Smirnoff Ice.... Even the kids didn't like the fruitjuicedrinks they ordered. Shame on the hotel for this!
Breakfast is a totally different story! Fantastic! What a variety of dishes! Everybody found something good every day!
We felt we got very good value for money, even if we did have to travel by bus or taxi to get to Rhodes town. But buses go by every so often, and you enter and descend in the Mandraki harbour. Which also happens to be the place where you get the islands best pitta gyros.... :)
Try the outside grill to the right from where the buses come in....

I really enjoyed my stay at the Dionysus. On arrival around 10pm I was very impressed by the large marble lobby area, filled with sofas, chairs and beautiful vases, lamps and lovely decor. The bar is also located at the far end of the lobby where Greek dancers were performing and it all seemed very welcoming and friendly. This impression lasted throughout my whole stay. Everywhere you look in the hotel there are stylish displays of art, vases, etc and they obviously take pride in this.
The hotel was very clean and my room was cleaned daily. Staff were always to be seen around the place cleaning and mopping. My room was large with a balcony overlooking the garden and mini golf area at the back of the hotel. There was a small TV with a couple of English channels. The pool area is very clean, with lots of sunbeds at that time of year. I went there at different times of day and there were always plenty of spare beds.
I stayed half board and the food was excellent. The breakfast buffet was “enhanced American” which was a few hot dishes (a variety of eggs plus one cooked meat/sausage), lots of cold dishes ,fruit, cereals, bread, cakes and pastries, ham, cheese, etc. Evening meals were served in the two poolside restaurants, a la carte. There was plenty of choice on the menu and I managed to have something different most days for two weeks. For the half board option you can choose a starter, main course and dessert. You can also buy lunch in one of the restaurants if you wish, plus there is a pancake/coffee house and a souvlaki bar which I have to highly recommend! For less than 3 euro you get a ham or pork souvlaki , salad and chips all stuffed into a large pitta – totally delicious and very cheap! You can eat this at a nearby table or take it back to your sunbed by the pool. In addition, the hotel supermarket sells sandwiches for about 1.60 so if you are trying to keep costs down or you are going off for the day, you can get a sandwich from there.
I recommend the walk into Rhodes town which takes about 45 minutes to get to the edge of the town then you can walk round the shops or go to the old medieval town, which is amazing. From the hotel, go to the main road by the beach then turn right and walk along the pavement at the side of the beach (or on the beach) for a while and then the pavement disappears and a pedestrian walkway takes you round to the promenade in Rhodes town. If you have had enough by then, the bus stops are all along the promenade, or you can go into the bus station further into the town. The bus driver calls out the nearest hotels at each bus stop on the way back so you know where to get off.
If I had to pick one thing that I was not so keen on it would be that the mattress in my room was very firm, they have notices in the rooms saying that they have specially chosen their mattresses and pillows to be good for your back. You can ask for different pillows but there was no mention of being able to ask for a different mattress! However, this is not a complaint as many hotels in Europe do use firm mattresses.
Overall a very enjoyable holiday, great weather (25 – 29 degrees most days), and lovely hotel - highly recommended.

I stayed in the Dionysos Hotel for 1 week with my friend and we both had an amazing time. The Hotel and pool area are immaculately clean and tidy. Hotel room was a bit basic and could really do with a kettle in the room, but as we didn't spend much time in the hotel room the facilities were more than adequate. The room was cleaned daily and we were given fresh towels every morning. We were on the 3rd floor overlooking the gardens and the tennis courts so was very quite. We stayed half board and was very glad we did! There is not much in Ixia itself so if you wanted to eat out you probably would have to travel in to Rhodes town itself, so half board was definitely value for money. The food was amazing!! There are two evening restaurants to choose from and on a half board basis you can choose a 3 course meal from the entire menu and all the food is prepared fresh for you. The staff are generally lovely and very accommodating however we did have a bit of a problem with one of the receptionists Olga. She was very rude not only to us but to other guests on a few occasions. So maybe avoid her if possible. This hotel is in a perfect location to travel around and is only 10 min taxi ride to Rhodes old and new town and 15mins from the airport. As I stayed here from the 6th Oct 2011 the hotel was pretty quiet so there were plenty of sunbeds to go around.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone! A lovely relaxed atmosphere throughout enabled my friend and I to have a wonderful relaxing holiday. Would definitely love to go back to the Dionysos in the future. Definitely worth their 4* rating!!

We have just arrived back from a fantastic weeks holiday staying at this hotel in Ixia. We booked our flights and hotel individually via Ryanair and Hotels4u and managed to get a stunning deal at only £230 per person Bed and Breakfast. Because of the price I wasn`t expecting much from this hotel - it worked out at £10.70 per person for the room and breakfast per day - we knew we couldn`t go camping for this in England!!
The hotel was spotless and the facilities were excellent. Our double room also had a sofa bed in and a fridge! The air con worked well and because of the comments on here I took a small travel kettle with me so I could have an early morning cuppa before breakfast.
The breakfast choice was brilliant - catered for all nationalities and tastes. We had a meal in the restraunt by the pool and this was lovely as well although a bit pricey. The hotel also runs a little supermarket at the bottom of the road so if you don`t want to pay the hotel prices for soft drinks you can just go in there. We recommend trying "Keep it Simple" snack bar/cafe - its a bit of a walk towards Trianda but the Dutch girl Deborah in here really looks after you and the snacks are amazing and reasonably priced.
The swimming pool is fab - our one complaint was that there are way too many sunbeds around the edge of the pools and so it is difficult to get in and out of the pools via the steps etc as these tend to be blocked by sunbathers. If they could just take a few out in the quieter season this would be great.
The staff in the hotel were always helpful and friendly.
We took a trip to the beautiful Symh island and booked this through Manos travel. This place was y favourite place of all - although I would advise you to take the Catamaran as the ferry takes 2 hours!
We are really considering re-visiting this hotel at the same time of year next year. We had 6 days of glorious sunshine in October - 1 day of heavy thunderstorms which was a bit dramatic.
We have stayed in hotels in Australia, Las Vegas and Bali so I would advise you to try this hotel - I would rate it 3-4* - but on the price alone it rates as 5* in my books.

Room Tip: We had a room at the front of the hotel facing the entrance on the third floor - two lifts are avail...
