We stayed at Nafsika Hotel for 5 nights and it was lovely. The staff is the sweet family that runs the hotel and were very helpful with everything. Free wi-fi in the room. The location is pretty good; being only 10-15 minutes away from the center and bus station by walk.
There is a long coastal line across from the hotel, with a very wavy sea. However, if you go towards the center and the Casino, the sea isn't wavy at all and you reach Elli Beach, which is a very wide and nice beach.
As for Rhodes, you can get to every beach by bus for very reasonable prices. You don't really need to rent anything. Air conditioned buses are your best bet in that heat! Don't forget to add Anthony Quinn Bay, Ladiko Beach, Lindos, St. Paul's Bay, Tsambika and Kalithea to your beaches to visit list. We didn't walk around at the little town in Lindos, because of the heat but I'm sure it's pretty nice.
Rhodes Old Town is very beautiful with all its historical buildings and castles, however dining is expensive and not very quality in my opinion. There are very good restaurants at the New Town, such as Koykos, a traditional Greek restaurant and Vesuvio, a delicious Italian restaurant. You must try Ouzo, their special drink and honey with yogurt, served as a dessert.
All in all, Rhodes is a beautiful island with many attractions and places to visit. You will not get bored here!
