Although we have been coming to the Greek islands since the early 80's and have visited many of them this was our first visit to Rhodes! We stayed at the Ialyssos Bay hotel after getting a great last minute deal with First Choice. We were a little unsure as were not into the whole 'all inclusive' thing as we both really love the greek food served in the local tavernas.
Firstly the staff were all really friendly and helpful, especially Miss Sophia, Manolis and Julia.
The rooms were lovely and always kept nice and clean. The local beer and wine was nice. The only thing we would say is the local spirits were not that great.
The food in the restaurant was always fresh and very nice but a bit too 'British' for our personal taste when on holiday in Greece. But saying that We totally understand that they have to cater for the masses rather than the 'odd' strange Brits who love Greek food!
So, what a great surprise it was to find the head chef was more than happy to cook some local 'Greek' dishes specially for us in the evenings. In fact he was delighted to see someone enjoying his Greek food rather than the stuff they have to serve up for the pizza n chip brigade!
Great hotel with great staff that can never do enough to make your stay as great as possible.
We will be back!
Thank you again, Miss Sophia, Manolis and Julia!
