“Fantastic Hotel, Fabulous Holiday!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the hotel in August and we had such a lovely time. It was our first holiday together and was made even better by the hotel and staff,

We requested a pool view room which we didn't receive at first but as soon as we spoke to the staff this was quickly sorted out and we were put in a top floor, corner room with a HUGE balcony that had a lovely view of the pool (especially at night when it was all lit up).

During our stay at the hotel it was my birthday which the hotel staff were aware of and when we arrived back at the room that evening there were 2 mini bottles of sparkling wine and some cakes waiting for us in the fridge which was a lovely and very unexpected surprise (something that didn't need to be done but shows how thoughtful and kind the staff are).

The pool area is gorgeous, lots of space, never too crowded and always plenty of sunbeds free (even in the middle of August!)

Another thing we were impressed with was that as we had to check out at 12pm and our transfer wasn't until 7pm we wouldn't have been able to shower before going home but in the basement of the hotel there is are 2 shower rooms for guests to use in this situation, a very good facility.

The bars and restaurants are approx 10 mins walk from the hotel and there are some very nice places that offer lots of different Greek dishes to try. The beach isn't the best but if your more pool people this is definitely the place for you.

Only downfalls were the expensive wifi and the air con wasn't the most effective we have ever experienced but as every thing else was so good these small things can certainly be overlooked.

Overall it was an excellent hotel with friendly, helpful staff, a beautiful pool and clean, spacious rooms and balconies. Highly recommended by us!

Room Tip: Corner rooms in the main building have very large balconies.

My husband and i recently stayed at this hotel. It was lovely and clean, and staff were very friendly. Glad i took a kettle as there arn't any in the rooms. We did B&B which i am glad we did, going by what they gave us for breakfast was more geared up for other nationalities than Brits Overall nice Hotel but sharn't be visiting again

Room Tip: Refuse a room which is over the entrance, as this is where the coaches drop off and pick up, abit no...

I've just got back this morning from two weeks bed and breakfast at this lovely hotel. I travelled with my boyfriend (we are both in our late 20s). The hotel was very clean, the pool was huge and the staff were very friendly. The pool area was lovely and there were plenty of loungers free when we went down (8.30am -9am). There are plenty of places to eat by the pool and the food is very very good - we mostly bought our drinks during the day from the supermarket at the front of the hotel, much cheaper than from the hotel bar. Although I did enjoy the swim up bar very much and can recommend the raspberry mojito. :-)

The rooms were spacious and clean, the beds were fairly hard for me (I have a back condition) BUT the cleaners put a softer mattress topper on my side of the bed which really helped. So don't suffer in silence if you find it uncomfortable - my boyfriend found the bed perfectly comfy though.

There are plenty of places to eat and drink in Ixia (turn left at the end of the road leading to the beach from the hotel) although it seems more geared towards familes as most of the places for drinks in Ixia were fairly empty by midnight. We really liked Villa di mare in Ixia, lovely cocktails and views of the sea and great atmosphere until very late if you like to stay out drinking. The only negative thing about Ixia is the road running through it, personally I found it too busy and it was very difficult to cross the road. The beach near the hotel looked ok but the sea looked very rough due to the wind they get in Ixia - we preferred to stay round by the pool during the day.
We preferred to go out in Rhodes old town most nights (8E in a taxi) as there was loads going on until very late and was more like traditional Greece with the cobbled side streets and lovely Greek tavernas. We walked there a couple of times, took about an hour and there are some lovely views along the coastal path.
Overall it was a lovely relaxing holiday and I would recommend this hotel and stay there again.

The fantastic pool is probably the hotels best feature, the public areas and rooms are spotlessly clean, but could do with a bit of an uplift here and there. The restaurants are lovely and very reasonably priced. There is also a supermarket at the entrance which is very convenient.
The bedrooms are large with a fridge and air con, the twin rooms have a large king size bed and a small single. The bed was a bit hard, but when my daughter mentioned this at reception, the mattress was changed within an hour.
There is some entertainment in the evening, and some very nice restaurants and bars along the beach front. For more lively nightlife you can take a bus or taxi to Rhodes Town very cheaply.
In fact Rhodes Town is a lovely forty minute walk along the beach road.
Ixia beach is pebbly but the water is great and worth going to.
All in all I had a great time at this hotel and would certainly return.

Half board includes bed and breakfast and lunch or dinner. Breakfast is a buffet style with loads to choose from and lunch/dinner is al a carte menu with plenty to choose from. We could mostly have the dinner meal included because the is a souvlaki hut to purchase a cheap and filling lunch for a few pounds.
We learnt that people were buying drinks from the hotel shop, (30second walk) it saved a lot of money than buying drinks at the bar.
it only cost 17-20 euros from airport in a taxi to hotel, cheap than paying for transfers and only took about 20minutes, saves messing around waiting for the transfers and stopping at everyone else's hotel along the way.
The only bad experience we had was On arrival they tried to move us to the cosmopolitan hotel for a few nights, they said that one of the floors had no power but we think they just over booked, we said that we will just have a whole refund and we will go somewhere else but then they some how found us a room, funny that.
Apart from that it was an amazing holiday and would love to return, cleans place I have been, defiantly recommend

Nice hotel, good pool facilities, family friendly.
Cleaning of the rooms was very good.
The food was exellent, lot of resturants
The room was great, we enjoyed there the time we stayed there.
Despite the fact that it needed a renovation ..
Friendly staff, help full.

It cost 50 euros to hire wi-fi, it's expensive when you get it for free at other hotels.
And it did not always work, disappointing..:-(

The pool area was very good, children's playground right next to the poolarea.

Short distance to beach, restaurants and supermarkets ..

Old Rhodes town is worth a visit, it must be experienced.
The streets are full of people, avoid midday if you will not get in line.
Early morning it is not so much the people there.
After nightfall it is worth taking a trip there.

We enjoyed our holiday..

We recommended Dionysos Hotel.

+ Big room
+ Clean room
+ Good food in restaurants
+ Big and nice pool
+ Polite staff (mostly)
+ Affordable (for us at least)
+ Got room next to travel companions (as requested)

- In the middle of nowhere
- Dangerous walk down to beach (part of the way without sidewalk)
- Worn, not 4 stars any longer
- Only one entrance, meaning we had to walk far to get in and out
- Few sunbeds (even fewer sunshades)
- Slippery pool area
- Minigolf, billiards etc. outdated
- Slow service in restaurants (probably cut staff to save money)
- First room we got had terrible smell (but we got to change after some discussion)
- Very hard beds and too thin pillows
- No extract fan in kitchen area
- No temperature setting on AC (externally set to 23 degrees)
- WIFI was expensive (14 euro for 4 hours that had to be used in 3 days or 50 euro for a week) and almost never worked

Room Tip: Rooms in main building may hear noise from neighboring hotel. Rooms on ground floor in building 2 ha...
