“Hotel Illysion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We have just returned from a short but fantastic holiday at Hotel Illysion. Our room was less than 20 metres from the sea and the view is simply stunning. We have been to this hotel many times and continue to return as we love it. The location is amazing and everytime we return it seems more beautiful. The management team and owners do a wonderful job in making all guests welcome, from arranging a first birthday party for a young guest to a fantastic Greek night for all!

i returned yesterday from a week at ilyssion with my mum, the hotel is absolutley beautiful, i understand now why people descibe it as paradise, it really is.
i am already missing waking up to the stunning view, It is only about a 15 minute walk into pefkos and it cost 10 euro for a taxi to lindos.
We went half board so we ate out quite a lot, but when we did eat in the hotel it was all fine.
Apart from the amazing location, the best thing about the hotel is definately the family that run it, they are fantastic :) and very friendly, they really did make the holiday a pleasure, i would like to return 1 day and take my 2 daughters with me next time.
It is a very very very beautful place with beautiful people :) xx

I have just returned from yet another great holiday at the ILYSSION HOTEL Pefkos Rhodes
I have got to say in terms of location, you can't beat it. 15 minutes walk to Pefkos. 10 Minutes
taxi into Lindos. As well as being right on the sea front with 2 pools and a bay to the right.
If you are looking to relax, this is the place to be. For a 3 star hotel, it provides good, comfortable, clean accommodation with almost every room having a sea view! I have just stayed on the half board basis and found the continental breakfast more than adequate, with the usual breads, hams and cheese. Plus a good selection of cereals, jams, fruit an yogurts. The evening meals were a buffet selection of traditional Greek dishes with the addition of vegetables, salads and a pasta dish. All of which I found well cooked and very tasty.
I do find it strange sometimes when I see that there are people who do not enjoy there time at this hotel.
I have been visiting here for 15 years and have always found the Family and staff very friendly and helpful. Can't wait to get back there.

We have just returned from this Hotel this July 2013.
The Hotel is great just right on the edge of the sea and has a swimming platform into the sea.
The small beach is very nice and only approximately 20 yards away so very easy to reach.
The family who run the hotel are very friendly and let me pick one of two rooms because I have a walking problem and they let me have the room on the ground floor which was very clean and cleaned every day. The food was very good and Chris his wife mother and sister could not do enough for their clients. We would recommend this Hotel to everyone who is looking for a nice hotel in a perfect position.

Room Tip: High rooms have a good sea view most of the rooms have a sea view.

After 16 years of going to the same hotel you would have thought we have had enough. No Chance. This hotel is perfect for all travellers. The location (right on the waters edge) is superb, the hospitality first class, the food was good. Pefkos and Lardos are within easy reach and well worth a visit especially Lardos. There were many different nationalities there all of them saying that they had such a good time that they would make every effort to go back again next year. Me well, like i said, i have been going to the Ilyssion many times over those 16 years and will continue to do so for as long as i can.

Room Tip: Don't listen to the travel agents, because only 3 of the 110 rooms have inland views. All the re...

My mum and dad have been to Ilyssion hotel 14 times and fell in love not only with the hotel, views and surroundings but also made many friends over the years especially the lovely family who run the hotel. They have seem Chris and Kyra grow up and and the whole family look after all their guests who are all special in their own individual ways. My dad sadly died in January so my mum took me out to their favourite hotel and I can confirm that it is absolutely beautiful, the views are stunning, the gardens kept so colourful, the room we had, had the most glorious views across the bay. The reception area and veranda is very comfortable and the swimming pools are great. We only stayed a week but wish it had been longer, the location was ideal and I would definitely want to go back.....so relaxing! :)
