“Amazing holiday !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We have recently got back from a weeks stay at Avra beach (July 12th- July 19th). We stayed in room 403 and 405, and it had a lovely view of the pool and the beach. The night time was especially lovely to sit out on the balcony and look at all of the lights and surroundings. Everything about this holiday was absolutely amazing !!!! The staff were all so friendly and talkative, especially the animations team (Michelle, Sziszi, Esther, Gustav, Zsofi and Balu) who made the holiday 100% more enjoyable with all of the entertainment which was going on. All of the acts which were arranged for the night time were also amazing (especially IL Divo).

We don't usually like going to hotels which have 'kids clubs' but all I can say is that the girls do such a fantastic job and can easily keep them all entertained so that they have something to do and don't get bored !. Gustav did the adult activities during the day and he was also really good at it, keeping everyone entertained and make sure you enjoyed what was going on !

All of the food choices were lovely and there was not one thing that I tried which I would not have eaten again. There was lots of variety for all tastes and no one that we spoke to had a bad word to say about the food. All of the rooms were cleaned daily and the cleaning staff were all so lovely and friendly, making conversation with you.The whole hotel was spotless and it could not be faulted at all.

Over all our holiday was great and we are already looking into booking it again for next year !!

Just returned from Avra Beach Resort and have to say that everything was better than our expectations. The bungalow (513) was clean and quiet with nice view to the sea and pool. Our children really enjoyed the animations due to the Balu's animator team! The hotel staff was always kind and smiley and helpful. We definitely plan to return.
- We missed the free wifi!
Thank you!

This was our second visit to the Avra Beach hotel. We find it a welcoming and friendly hotel, which is generally well maintained with pleasant grounds. The food is good with plenty of choice and we like the fact that you don;t have to queue up to be seated in the restaurant.Meal times were pretty relaxed. The waiters are all efficient and helpful. The lack of sunbeds by the pool is a bit of a nuisance at times and it is a little frustrating when people get a bed, only use if for a short time but go away leaving their stuff there to come back in some cases several hours later. Our room was always well cleaned and the facilities more than adequate. The first year we went we did find our room a little noisy as it was quite near the road but this time we had a lovely room in one of the bungalows. Rhodes is a beautiful island and not difficult to find your way around by car. We don't need the evening entertainment but those who did appeared to enjoy it, an air conditioned quiet comfy lounge would be a good addition. This year there was a spa available which I enjoyed using. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a side sea view away from the main road

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

My first time in Greece, in Rhodes and this hotel. I liked it well enough, my mother not so much. I guess, it is reasonable for 4 stars, so you can't expect much luxury.
To begin with, you'll need to carry your suitcases yourself. The receptionist will just point out the directions. Speaking about reception staff, during my stay, there were 2 girls, blond and dark haired one (sorry, i am not so good with names). All important deals are better dealt by dark haired girl, her english is better and she is more efficient. Otherwise, all staff in hotel are hard-working, friendly people and they do smile enough. Animators team is really just as wonderfull, as mentioned in all other reviews. Gustav, Michelle and Sisi will never forget to ask you to join morning stretch, water gymnatics, darts game, volleyball or other daily activities. Pity, that evening shows are rather weak. The ones, worth mentioning, would be Greek night, ABBA and The Beatles shows, as well as Il Divo show.
The hotel grounds are medium sized, clean and tidy, with lots of greenery and even a fountain. There is shingle beach with lots of sunbeds by sea and just amazing pool with rather overcrowded pool area and not enough sunbeds. You can play football in front of main building, volleyball in beach or tennis in tennis-court. The game room with pool table and different slot-machines will attract not only children, but their parents as well. Ixia town, where hotel is based, is windy by itself, there were waves every day and water is not so clean. As a result, there were a lot of people , sunbathing by the sea, but mainly swimming in pool.
The first great disadvantage of this hotel would lack of sunbeds by the pool and towel treatment. it was our first holiday in late spring/early summer (we stayed at the end of may/beginning of June) instead of late autumn and our first time to experience very annoying towel treatment. You literally have to get up at least at 6 AM in the morning to get one of the ,,prestigious,, sunbeds by the pool. Sunbeds by the sea were still available by 8 or even 9 AM. The other option is just sit by the table or if your room is close to the pool, just put your towel on the ground and take a quick dip to swim.
The second huge drawback would be food. As always with AI, food does get repetitive after a couple of days. Perhaps we are spoiled and picky, but there was one evening, when I survived on just salads and deserts. My mother however complained about her food almost every time. You can drink pepsi, sprite, fanta, orange and apple juice as well as wine from a machine. Snack bar by the pool offers pastries, slices of pizza and cakes as well as free ice cream everyday from 10 AM till midnight. I am not british, but I loved breakfast - poached eggs with roasted ham and toast with jam,not to mention freshly baked buns and doughnuts. Sadly, lunch and dinner were far worse. Salads were plentiful, but I got bored with chips and pasta. Fish was hard-boiled , meat and stuffed vegetables really spicy. Deserts such as jello with fruits or cakes were better than in 5 star hotel in Turkey, but thats just my opinion. Fruits choice: watermelon, apples, peaches, apricots, sometimes bananas. We loved cocktails, since we do not drink pure alcohol or wine.
Main nationalities in hotel are scandinavians and british people, a few families of french, russian. The animators are mainly from Sweden. All in all, main language in hotel would be english.
I cannot fault our room. After a couple of emails with hotel management, we were given a bungallow (we paid for standard room) without any extra charge, with seaview. We had 4 beds in 2 rooms, enough closet place and balcony. Also our bungallow was conveniently situated just by the pool, we had rooms in first floor. We stayed before the beginning of official season (the 15th of june), so there was no air-con. it was windy enough , if you let your balcony door open, to keep both rooms cool. But it could a problem, if your room does not get sea breeze, and paying for air-con is really expensive. The safe is chargeable and you will have to buy water. Though we bought a pack of 6 bottles for about 3 euros and then filled them by juice or lemonade from machines in cafeteria or snack bar. The rooms were cleaned daily, but warning for the picky - sheets or towels are not changed every day, except the bath mat. Also the biggest fault in the room is shower curtain, the cheapest thing ever. Generally this thing should keep the water in, however after shower you could literally swim in your bathroom. I wiped water with bath mat every time to avoid slippery floors in bathroom. Hotel does provide you with 2 bottles of shower gel, shampoo, body lotion for 2 people for 10 days.Then they do not replenish them, so you have to take your own, as it won't be enough. The other setback would be lack of sockets. if there are more than 1 person, staying with a few smartphones, tablets and other devices, there is just one socket in all bungalow to charge them. I switched off my bedside lamp to charge my camera and kindle at the same time. Also you have to pay for internet even in reception area - 3 euros per hour.
AVRA hotel is very nicely situated about 15 min from Rhodes airport by bus and about the same distance from Old Town. Hotel opens up right to a bustling street with lots of restaurants, little souvenirs shops and travel agency nearby. Drivers can rent up a car to take a look around Rhodes island. Visiting Rhodes old town is a must at least once, it is after all UNESCO heritage site. The bus stop to town is righ across the street, you can and should by tickets (it will be 4,40 euros for tripto and back from town per erson) beforehand in local supermarkets to avoid massive queues in Old Town bus station. After approximatively 15 min bus will stop in main bus station, situated nearby Tourist information office and New market square as well as entry to Old town moat, where everybody will have to get off. You will leave the Old town from the same place, where you‘ve arrived. One of the employes from bus stations will always shout directions, where specific busses are going and all the information is displayed on the walls of tickets kiosk. Warning for bus users – be patient, when waiting for the bus. If you‘re lucky,it will arrive in 10-15 min, if you‘re not – it can be 40 min. Old town is well worth the visit, with lots of restaurants, bars, shops, impressive old buildings, The Knights Street, The Grand Masters Palace (entry 6 euros). The Archaeological Museum deserves the visit – entry 6 euros.
All in all – Rhodes is worth a visit. AVRA beach hotel is basically, what you pay for.

Room Tip: Well naturally bungalows or at least rooms on first floor , overlooking the sea or pool.

We had a good all round holiday. Great staff. So helpful. All ways plenty of food and to think how many nationalities where staying there we think they did a good variety of food. The hotel was well located but you had to be careful crossing the main road. Brilliant animation team. Good evening entertainment. Thank you Avra beach for a good two weeks. Shame we had 11 1/2 hour delay with the plane coming home !!
