Sort of All-Inclusive

I'm not a fan of all-inclusive but are there any smaller family run places on Rhodes that operate in that way, pay up front or on a day-by-day basis?

This appears to be a much smaller-run hotel than the majority of all-inclusives, although you perhaps need to drill-down as to what that includes (reviews will probably be informative if you trawl though, re. what drinks are included, standard of food, additional cost for a/c, etc.)

There are some others, but quite honestly, the reviews are a bit dire, particularly relating to the food.

To me, there are probably plenty of smaller, family-run establishments where you can get a breakfast, for example, but that free you up for experiencing one of the joys of Greece, which is eating out, which can be at very reasonable cost, including the wine. Just my view though.

I agree, no reason for all inclusive in Greece.

Actually the concept of All-Inclusive is very good - in my opinion! Unfortunately by the time it is put in place it does tend to be not so good.

I have all but given up on my quest.

Why fixing your meals when you can choose a different restaurant and a different place every day at the same price?

AI questions always seems to get a poor response on this forum with posters giving their opinions when sometimes they have never visited an AI hotel in their life. Anyone who has gone room only and spent most of their holiday looking for a restaurant to their liking might prefer an AI with good reviews re food as well as other facilities provided.

Personally I think that the only way you will get AI is by going "up market" as at the end of the day you get what you pay for. There are plenty of reviews of AI hotels on TA that might be what you are looking for but unlikely to be " small and family run"

I have seen the AI hotels. You don't eat local dishes. You end eating home food... and if you share the hotel with other nationalities the majority will decide the menu. So you are british, go to Greece and end up eating neither greek nor british.
