This was my first trip to Greece, so I booked the hotel on the basis of the reviews on trip advisor. I can honestly say First impressions when the cab pulled up to the Dionysos Hotel, I can honestly say I was impressed. We checked in two hours early, which was not an issue at all. The check in process was quick and the staff friendly. We made our way up to the room that was on the 3rd floor. Upon entering the room, it was quite of decent size and very clean, I was slightly disappointed as this is rated as a 4* hotel and the room we had was more of a standard 3*, when I looked online and booked this hotel the pictures I saw of the rooms were the renovated rooms/ upgraded suites, there were no pictures of the room we were allocated.
We unpacked, checked out the balcony we had a lovely view over the hotel gardens. We proceeded to make our way down to the pool area. We were starving so decided to have lunch/brunch in the pool bar restaurant.
We both ordered the Club Sandwich (came with fries) which was absolutely gorgeous but if we had known we would have ordered one between two of us as it was huge. The fries were grim and inedible. The pool is massive and lovely like people have said can get busy but lots of seats around the bar area. The next night we decided to have dinner in the Dionysos Grill, The waiter and waitress were not friendly at all, rather rude to be honest, the waitress was just miserable, it took 20 minutes to take our order (it was not very busy) and another 45 minutes for it to come out, when it did it was horrible and the portion sizes were tiny. It wasn't cheap either. So avoid if you can go into Rhodes town, you'll get better food, more ambience and great service. Maids/Hotel Ground staff all very nice, especially the guys who work in the hotel bar, Yiannis is exceptional, so warm and friendly. There is entertainment every night from Greek Dancing to Pop band performing. One thing that was not entertaining was the 4 girls that were dancing, there changing room consisted of a folding screen in the bar area so everyone could see them changing, with kids around this is in appropriate also there dancing style was a bit too tongue and cheek for a child audience. I felt very uncomfortable. I don't think that kids should be in the bar area after 9pm or sitting at the bar. I would recommend the Dionysos as we did have a good time there. Also opt for the breakfast as the choice is unbelievable.
