Hotel well located 15 -20 minute walk from the Old Town (taxi 4 euros to the old town and 18 euros to the airport). Hotel room a little bland with a noisy fridge that had to be switched off at night due to noise. Friendly and helpful staff. Buffet breakfast with a fair selection of food. Drinks in bar not too expensive. Pool is no more than a plunge pool. We stayed at the end of the season so little atmosphere due to apparent low number of guests. Overall a good experience.

We've been to this hotel in 2007 and again this year for our honeymoon. The location is excellent (at the beach and only 15 mins from the old town by foot).

General :
Lobby, reception, restaurant and bar are very luxurious and nice.
Hallways and elevators are OK : clean but a bit worn out. But then again : who really cares about that ? :-)

Pool :
Ibiscus is a city hotel, so the pool is very, very small. However it is clean and it's a nice place to relax with a book and a drink.

Food / restaurant :
The food is very tasty and there's enough choice, even for the picky eaters. Overall the food is rather international, but with some greek specialties every day. The restaurant is clean and nice, but indoors and very crowded; not a very good place for a cosy, relaxed dinner.

Rooms :
That's a difficult one because there really is *a lot* of difference between the rooms.
Never ever book a room without seaview; not only for the view, but especially because these rooms are a very small and in urgent need for some renovation.
Even between the seaview-rooms there's a difference. The best rooms are the ones with frontal seaview : they have been renovated recently and are more spacious and luxurious than the other ones. However, in Belgium you can only choose between with or without seaview, but you cannot specify that you want a room at the front of the hotel.
In conclusion : the rooms are clean, but all rooms could use a makeover, except those at the front of the hotel.

Staff :
All personnel is very friendly and helpful, except those at the reception desk.

Had a very enjoyable stay, only disappointment we asked for a sea view but got a room at back with no sun during day. Staff all excellent, went B & B and this was first class the restaurant manager is wonderful. Beach over road, need good sand shoes as very pebbley, sunbed and brolley 8 euros for 2 people and town 5 - 10 mins walk. Be careful if you go to Old town as we got 2 small beers and was charged 9 euros, best to ask how much before you order. Drinks were cheaper at hotel which is most unusual. Food prices for evening meal in town were fair between 40 - 50 euros for 2 incl drink and coffee. One of the best holidays we have had for weather and things to do and see.

Location: directly in front of the beach. very convenient immediate access. The sand has some rocks in it, but it's still a nice beach. It's a 10 min walk to Old Town or a 3 euro cab ride, however, Old Town was so overcrowed with tourists that we were glad to not be sleeping there. (PS some cab drivers try to rob you a few euros: make sure you ask how much the fare is to your destination before getting in. We took maybe 5-6 cabs it only happened once where he charged us 5 euro instead of 2).

Accomodation: The room was comfortable (tv, ac, good lighting, clean sheets and bedspread). The bathroom has everything you need (good shower pressure, big sink, new ceramic tiles, clean) but it's small.

Food: AMAZING. We booked our hotel online with breakfast AND supper included. Breakfast had the most variety from all the hotels we've stayed in in greece (Belvedere Santorini, San Giorgio Mykonos, Central Hotel Athens), it was very good, there was even a cook available to make you a customized omelette on the spot. However, the main highlight for us was the buffet dinner, including: hot food, salad bar, soup, cheese station, chef's grill, ice cream and dessert table. The selection changed every night, the choices were delicious, and the staff was exceptionnally well trained (especially considering the greek standards for customer service).

Service: Exceptional. People were polite, kind and helpfull.

This hotel is perfect for the beach, has wonderful sea views, and is in walking distance of the lovely Old Town. While the corridors and bathrooms could benefit from cosmetic refurbishing, the bedroos are large, have excellent storage facilites, and are cleaned immaculately every day, with clean sheets and towels. The staff are friendly, helpful, and like everyone in Rhodes Town, speak perfect English and German. Nothing is too much trouble, and queries and problems are dealt with efficiently and quickly.

The maitre d' in the restaurant is charming and extremely efficient, and the food is varied, good and well presented.

All in all, a perfect place for a good holiday
