The hotel staff were helpful and friendly our room was clean and comfortable but would question the linen changed three times a week which did not happen our case. The entertainment staff were excellent and kept all ages entertained. I did have few concerns as while we were there two people slipped on the wet floor maybe a handrail on the ramps would help. On the whole was enjoyable holiday and would go there again

Room Tip: If you can have room on higher floor on pool side for better views

This was our sixth visit to Avra Beach .Little has changed since our last visit in October 2012 we were entertained brilliantly again by Artur,Chris,Elin and the new face of SophieTHANKS GUYS.They are excellent at keeping me busy as I'm not a sun worshipper. They have Sophie looking after toddlers Elin looking after teens and Chris and Artur the adults theres a comprehensive programme through the day.They then they all take to the stage to entertain us in the evening.Mini disco cartoons photos and videos of the days activities plus all the shows too.The hotel was very clean as always with a large team of people looking after the rooms public areas pool etc.The food was great as always with plenty to choose from and they still run theme nights with differnt options nightly and plenty of greek dishes too.It is all served as as buffet so help your self and try something may be you wouldnt want to pay for at a restaurant.Just one tiny critism this year was that brekfast at the busiest times was a but of a free for all getting coffee , a table on the terrace etc but as usual the staff are brilliant and work very hard.
The bars are staffed by legends Nicolas,Kiriakous,Natasha,Thomas and Vangelis THANKS GUYS they work ever so hard they remember your drinks.. your name.. they clear tables, pick up your breakages and mop up your spills all with a very big smile.

All the above adds up to one very big family for whom you cant help getting getting close to this quite obviously rubs off on the other guests the atmosphere is superb we always come away with a very heavy heart leaving lots of new friends behind .As we return we see many returning too ....Must be the AB effect thanks again everyone see you next May.

Room Tip: overlooking pool football area great for a drink and watching the sunset

spent a week so far have another week to go 25-09-13 to 09-10-13
what a difference a year and a few minutes walk makes, walked into the hotel with a very warm welcome, after our disaster last year at another hotel which i wont mention their not worth the advertisement on here,( but there is a review of them already on here) menu is excellent i'm a fussy eater but there's something for everyone, rooms are clean and tidy, entertainment everyday and night. The staff here cant do enough for you, always there if you need help nothing is to much trouble no matter how small or big.
so far nothing to bad to grumble about , a couple of things but i'll report that at the end of my holiday

I want to stress prior to anyone reading this, that isn't a negative review. Overall Avra Beach is a great hotel, but we did have a couple of niggles and minor gripes.

Avra Beach is situated about a 20 - 25 minute coach transfer from the airport with additional Hotel stops on the way. Several restaurants within an easy 10 minute walk away if you don't want to stay on the hotel grounds for food. We had a late check out on our last day and ate at a Taverna called Dimitrious which served fantastic, incredibly tasty and well priced food

It is located close to the landing flight path of the airport so planes can be watched coming in to land ... I thought this would be a negative at first, and if you were staying any closer to the airport it would be, but to be honest, you can hardly notice them, and it's was quite cool to see the planes banking in to their landing run.

Rhodes Town is around 10 - 15 minutes away by bus, which stop right outside the hotel and are cheap enough, with tickets being sold at the on-site mini market at €2.20 per ticket one way.

The Staff were friendly and helpful, and the reception, restaurant and bar areas are nicely decorated and appointed with comfy chairs and sofas. However (Negative Number 1) once into the main accommodation blocks there were some niggles: Frayed and faded carpets, light fittings with flaking finish, chips and gouges in the walls and the interior of the lifts were covered in graffiti.

The room was nice and airy; we were in Room 331 (3rd Floor right at the end) and had good views of the sea on the right and the hills on the left from the balcony, but (Negative's Number 2 and 3) the bathroom only had one light fitting and was therefore quite a dark and dingy place for ablutions and the room decor was also a bit dated and could do with a refresh, but otherwise was clean, tidy and more than adequate and if you want air-con out of high season, it's an additional cost - Again, something we thought a 4* resort would offer at all times..

In addition to that, our room was situated over the corridor from the cleaners office ... they started at 7am and were less than Ninja like in their duties with bangs, crashes and loud chatting.

We were a little nonplussed to learn that we had to pay for WIFI access at €15 for 24 Hours access - It was another assumption that 4* resort would offer this for free, and it was patchy at best with signal being lost mid browse on several occasions.

The pool area is well tended, and the pool bar a shady, cool escape from the heat of the day looking out over the sea with Turkey clearly visible.The third negative I found was that as I spent quite a lot of time with my goggles on in the pool, I noticed that here and there, bits of tile trim missing, and it wasn't as clean as I would have expected from a 4* Hotel with a bit of green stuff on the tile filler, but beyond that, the water was clean and the sun loungers readily available.

There's no beach as such, with the but the sea was shallow out to 30 odd feet from the shore, with only the first 10 feet being pebbly, then soft and.

The local beer is called VAP, and is very nice. I know, I drank quite a lot of it! The cocktails are also good, if strong (No proper measures ... just pour and pray!)

Breakfast menu was a selection of cold meats/cheeses, cereal or an array of hot food (Bacon, scrambled and boiled eggs etc).

For the lunch and evening menus, If you are a meat eater, then the food will be fine ... numerous meat dishes available every night, and as we are pescetarians, we also assumed that we'd be well catered for with fish dishes, but found that while fish was on the menu every night, it quite often didn't seem to be well cooked and a such we tended to avoid it. Designated vegetarian dishes were few and far between, but despite this we didn't go hungry.

Snacks were available from the pool bar which consisted of sandwiches (Ham and Cheese), Pizza (Generally Ham) and cakes .. a mix of chocolate and marble cakes and biscuits, with soft drinks and tea/coffee available all day.

The animation team were very good ... friendly and not pushy when asking for participation , with Water polo, Darts, Table Tennis and Football for adults and kids throughout the day, with entertainment also on of an evening (Blokes ... sign up for the Ladies Night event if they put it on: Great Fun)

SUMMARY: Overall I would question the 4* rating of the hotel .... The niggles I have mentioned stop it from reaching that standard IMHO.

If there was such a thing as a 3* Plus, I'd put it at that: Not quite a full 4* but better than a 3*

In comparison, we spent 10 Days at the Mareblue Apostolata in Kefalonia last year, which is also a 4* Hotel, but outdid Avra Beach in every way: Free WIFI, sparklingly clean pool and rooms, food well cooked and a veggie option everynight, with the only downside being that it's located a good 10 minute taxi ride from the nearest town (Skala), negated by the fact that the hotel provided a free, regular bus for patrons.
