We are a couple of Ukrainians that leave in Finalnd decided to go to this hotel because mostly all reviews said that Mitsis Faliraki Beach is full of Russians. However, it's not true. For those who are afraid of Russians, please don't trust everything you read - the hotel was just 30-40% Russians, but in general, very multi national. There were a lot of Swedish and German people, and not any kind of "Russian roulette" mentioned by one of the reviewers here.
About the hotel:
If you are used to the 5 Star hotel with excellence everywhere - it's not the right hotel for you. However, if you are not obsessed with details, but still value the quality, good atmosphere and not extremely expensive prices - Faliraki Beach hotel will be just the right place to go. The location is just perfect, because the hotel stands by the beach and at the same time it takes you just 5 minutes to get the bar/disco street. I strongly recommend for everyone who loves live music to visit the local coctail bars, because you can find a lot of good talented singers performing almost every night. Besides, for a "heavier" party you can always visit any of the local discos. Nothing fancy, but good music and a lot of young people are guaranteed.
We haven't tried the local food, becuase the All Inclusive in our hotel was okey. The main restaurant has more or less repetitive food, but the A la Carte restaurants became a solution. We recommend Greek and Italian the most. The Mexican was poor, but some people like it, so decide for yourself.
The pool area was amazing!!!! We always rest in the pool area as it has free Wi-Fi connection, which is very convenient. Besides, you can always take a drink or ice cream nearby, which is included in the "All Inclusive" package.
The rooms were just renovated, so in a good condition. I think the size of the room was quite standard, but the bathroom maybe a bit smaller than we expected. I you have a long hair, i suggest you take your own hair dryer with you. The hair dryer in the room is outdated. We stayed in the secondary building on the first floor that have a separate swimming pool. Basically, we entered the pool from our balcony - it was great! We didn't ask for this specific room, but I guess it's a matter of luck if you get it. Also, we have visited the room of our new friends from Russia who stayed in the main building on the fourth floor. There room and the bathroom were much bigger, but they didn't have the pool though :) Mainly Russians have a better deal when they are staying in this hotel. This is due to a special agreement that exist between some of the tour operators from Russia and Mitsis hotel. I know that usually it means a bigger, seaview and minibar that is refilled every day.
I strongly suggest that you rent a car and go and see the "Kiss of two seas" (Aegean and Mediterranean seas). This is worth visiting. We have also found one interesting beach with some rock and caves, mostly popular among the locals. You can find it near Kalithea village on your way to Rodos. You will see the signs with names of different beaches. I forgot the name of the one we liked, but they are located very near to each other. You can look down from the hill and decide where to go. You can reach any of those either by walking or by car. Maybe walking will be too extreme for those who don't like it.
Well, I think that Rhodos is a nice island to visit and Mitsis Faliraki Beach hotel is a good choice for accommodation. You won't be hungry or bored there. This is a really good choice for the couples that like combining relaxiting with some party and good live music!
I hope you find my review helpful! Enjoy Rhodos!
