We stayed at the Rinela Beach Resort at the end of October and arrived late due to a devastating storm in Crete. The weather wasn't good for 3 days afterwards but the hotel was so good and comfortable it didn't spoil our enjoyment. We have stayed in Mitsis Hotels in Rhodes many times but the Rinela topped them all. Beautifully refurbished throughout and our Superior Sea View room was excellent. So clean and well looked after by the Housekeepers. The Bar and restaurant staff were all super, making us feel so welcome. Food was excellent in the Buffet and all thr speciality restaurants- and thd pizza and barbecue by the beach had everything you could want for a snack or light lunch. So many eating choices, including the sushi and wine bar plus the gelateria. Due to the weather most of the evening entertainment was in the main bar but it was so good and the atmosphere was wonderful with all nationalities joining in. Everyone at the Rinela was so welcoming and helpful throughout our stay, especially our Concierge, Zilia. Nothing was too much trouble. Can't wait to go back!!

Hotel's Favorite
We visited Mitsis Rinela in May after not being away on holiday for 3 years due to covid. Wow, what can we say… We arrived late evening and were greeted with a welcome drink and had our cases/bags carried up to our room for us. The rooms are stunning, very clean and we couldn’t believe the amount of drinks in the mini bar for no extra cost!! The food in the main restaurant was amazing and had so much to choose from every day, aswell as the other restaurants too. However it was such a shame we couldn’t visit all of them as they did get booked up very quickly so dont miss out! The pool area was beautiful and the range of food and drink you could get there and down at the beach was everything you could of wanted, everything is made fresh right infront of you. The pizza and crepe bar is a must try!!! There was plenty of entertainment going on in the evenings and staff were very friendly and happy to help with anything. We can’t wait to book into another Mitsis hotel soon ☺️

We had a great time and really enjoyed our stay there. We will never forget the food of the taverna at the beach, and especially the service, the professionalism and the kindness of Zacharias! We feel lucky that we were served by him and he is one of the main reasons we will visit Mitsis Rinela and the tavern again!

We visited the Mitsis Rinela as a family group and thought it was wonderful. We had a swim up room that was beautiful and our particular location was quiet and a real sun trap. The communal areas were constantly cleaned and all staff were lovely. The beach felt very safe for children and the kids club pizza making was a lovely touch. We booked all restaurants in advance and enjoyed the variety and accommodating staff at each We have been to many 5* resorts over the world and felt so welcomed and comfortable at the Rinela. Thank you to all the staff that made our stay so special - we will be back!!!

We had a fantastic holiday at Rinela Beach - it’s a beautiful place and the staff were so wonderful and welcoming. We had some amazing family photos taken by the very lovely Ivanna, who was completely delightful and put us all at ease. Nice to get some really good shots of the whole family together 😊 Thank you to everyone who made our stay so relaxing! We will be back!

Hotel - 4/5 Food - 2/5 Service - 3.5/5 Overall - 3.2/5 Reasons for my ratings: Prior to getting to the hotel had trouble booking transfers and had a vack on fourth of emails trying to explain this. On the day of departure our plan was change and hotel was able to accommodate transfers. Arrived at hotel and they help unlock suitecase as we forgot the code. Then we anted to warm the room uo as it was cold there was trouble as it was not working and they said someone would come out a technician in the morning. We waited next day no one came - we used an extra blanket in the room. Day 2 room still very cold especially at night no one had still come to look at the thermostat. It reached 1am and we went to the reception asking what is going on he then proceeded to say they cannot turn on the heating as it is centralised. They said the only thing they can offer are more blankets I requested 3. That helped but made sleep uncomfortable as they are very weighted. On to the food : well what can I say the variety is there but food was often very salty or very sweet the balance was off. They have a mix of restaurants that you can only eat at once per week per stay which is strange especially since we booked all inclusive. So that meant once we had been to the reservation only restaurants we were stuck with the main hotel restaurant were the food was very repetitive as it’s similar food served at lunch and dinner. If you are all inclusive do bot expect to eat anything all the time throughout your stay they have small stations of crepes, bbq and pizza but they shut at 6pm and the crepe midnight. For lunch I wanted baked beans which they obviously have and are from a can. I asked is it possible to get a bowl of beans they said its only served in the morning that I understand but being an all inclusive guest and requesting such a small thing im confused as to how difficult that is. I was told they are traditional beans and only served in the morning - that for me made me laugh beause i could not believe it what I was hearing. Im a guest who came for lunch and didn’t find anything they liked and wanted a bowl of beans and that could not be facilitated for a 4 star hotel its disappointing. Moving on to the drinks they are readily available but they will taste different every single time even if its the same drink. They have a nice spa lovely staff but massage rooms are cold. There is also a mini market on hand which is handy. Watersports are also available but only take cash. Based on my experience ai personally wouldn’t come back as I wouldn’t be able to eat but if you like eating the same things for the duration of your holiday this would be the perfect place.

We had the most wonderful holiday here on a all inclusive basis, I’m not an all inclusive girl but with the extra food venues from Sushi, Hotdogs, yummy gyros and pancakes you could get outside the main restaurant and the 5 a la cart restaurants I’m definitely converted! The food in the restaurants was amazing, from pizza to lobster, I was getting to the point where I was wondering if I had read it wrong being all inclusive and was worried I was going to get a bill at the end of the holiday lol but no was all included!! We are 2 adults 2 children and the accommodation was clean and comfortable, plenty of pools we were mainly at the kids pool which was great to see lifeguards there too shout out to Mary the Lifeguard who was lovely. The staff were very friendly and some of the bar staff played pingpong with my boys and also football as they were walking by. I can’t fault the hotel, the staff were amazing and the hotel was very clean, it is a big hotel but the way it is set out it doesn’t feel it, would highly recommend. Thank you for a fabulous time.

We had a fantastic experience at this hotel! All the staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful, and the hotel was very clean. The food was excellent, as were the drinks (Maria at the main bar was exceptional). The breakfasts were absolutely delicious (especially in The Taverna) ,so much choice to suit every taste and dietary requirement. I am a coeliac and still had plenty to choose from. Gluten free bread was available on request, but I had pre-warned the hotel.

Our booking 'did not arrive'. So we had to spend half a day arguing, 1 day discussing and negotiating and calling back UK, and only then we got the room we paid for. The buildings closest to the sea don't have wi fi. At least did not have wifi when we were there (apparently just after reopening). Plus phones don't work on the ground floor either (GSM range not coming through the walls), so no alternative to use your mobile network. Bear in mind that all the information (menus, hotel map, activities etc) are available electronically through wifi, so not very helpful that you had to go to the main pool to check it. Food was OK. Good alternative for kids are the hotdogs and pancakes / waffles, conveniently co-located with a bar for parents :) Staff was nice. Especially the cleaning people - the place was spotless! Including each pool was cleaned every day. Overall, not a bad place, but we were expecting much more from a newly refurbished hotel with such a hype.
