“Very clean and large room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

just got back from this hotel after spending 2 weeks there.the room we had was lovely 202,with two balconies,and cleaned daily.we paid for air con which was 90 euros.Had one meal in the attached coconut restaurant, which was on par with all the others,ie,ok.! this hotel seems very very popular with german guests, we seemed 2 be the only brits there,whilst this isnt a problem for us as we went out on a hired quad every day,it may have an impact on people who use the small pool as there was no room to be had.this hotel was a great base for us,with just a 2 minute stroll to the restaurants after drinks on the balcony.

Great, helpfull and friendly staff. Real family atmosphere! The rooms were clean and well equipped with new furnishings. Kitchen also well equipped - there is no microwave - but the electric cooker has one very special fast and very small electric hotplate for coffee and tea making - it can be used for warming up the baby/chilren food. No extra costs for the air-con, nice, clean and quiet pool area. Nice two children play areas beside the pool and in the joined Coconut restaurant. The Coconut restaurant is great with "real Greek" and international cuisine. Furthermore the hotel guests gets 10% discount in the restaurant. The sea was "just across the street" but it is a north-west Rhodos side - so mixed pebbles and sand. To find a nice sandy beach it requires to rent a car and go to the Faliraki/Lindos area. Very good connection to the Rhodes Town by public bus, the stop is 100 meters away. Many supermarkets, restaurants and shops nearby. Some of the rooms are oriented to the pool area and quiet blind street - so there is some very low level of "noise", which was good. I will definitelly recommend this hotel and come back again.

Room Tip: We had a room oriented to the empty quiet blind street - but sometimes we were woken up early in the...

super hotel for the price and you are treated very well from the moment you arrive,a lot of thought put into the rooms to make them the best they can be,on the downside absolutely no views from any of the rooms that we could see and as for ixia as a resort ? well, its pretty rubbish. everything is situated along a very, very, busy main road and by everything i mean typical supermarkets that all sell the same fare (at different prices i may add) and extremely annoying restaurant and bar staff trying to beckon you into their establishment,so you cant even walk along there in peace.there is nowhere to go to get away from it,unless you go to the beach.we did find 1 really good bar called sebastians.by all means use this hotel for a base as its very good value, but be warned ixia has no redeeming qualities whatsoever.rhodes is a great holiday destination been 14 times, going again next year to trianta,but would not go back to ixia.

A boutuque establishment that lends itself to being either self catering stay or eat at their equisite restaurant adjoined.
We had such a lovely few days there and wished we could have stayed longer. We were in Rhodes for a wedding. What i loved about Caravel, extremely friendly and helpful staff, clean apartments, had our ow patio and basically right near everything. Like beach, bars, restaurants and shops!! Perfect!!!

From our arrival and until we left, we enjoyed the stay at caraval. The staff is kind and polite, and the cleaning is good. The swimmingpool is not the biggest, but it wasn't a problem finding a spot to get some sun. The appartment was big and clean. The beds were decent.
The wifi and air con is an extra charge, but we were happy that we bought the air con, cause the weather was very warm.
We might be back one day, a place we would recommend others.
