We have been staying at the mitsis grand hotel since Monday 10/9/12 and are here for 10 nights on our honeymoon! Our 1st impression of the hotel has & continues to  be excellent. The hotel is very big lots of space to chill have a drink, sunbathe or dine in the restaurant. For a med 5 star rated hotel its pretty good! A little dated perhaps but we're having a great time. The food  is nothing less than amazing! Variety of dishes every day & even tried out some new food! The rooms v.clean & pleasant you can hear the sea waves at night but I found that relaxing & sends me to sleep. If you should want to change your room the staff will always try and help, although you may have to wait til the following morning as its a very busy popular hotel! One side of hotel you have streets full of bars & restaurants some livelier than others, late night takeaways and the other side of hotel tourist gift & newsagents shops. The beach is right opposite hotel & the bus station & old town of Rhodes only 15min walk away. If you want to get out of Rhodes and explore other towns you would have to get a bus from main station. Any probs or questions weve had all the staff have been polite and helpful. Love this hotel! Just wish they had more than one entertainer in the evening and maybe some Greek nights thrown in, oh well you can't have it all. We'll just have to venture out to find more entertainment : )

Just returned from 7 days half board at the Mitsis Grand Rhodes . For those that have wrote poor reviews shame on you . This hotel is a lovely way to spend a relaxing time . The food was very good and I ( as a gluten free veggie ) difficult to feed , found it very good , the desserts were to die for ! The staff were very helpful and quickly changed our room because we were above the all inclusive bar and as early nighters found it a bit noisy on our first night , in fact they were ALWAYS very friendly and helpfu, nothing was a problem . The room was clean and tidy , made up every day . Pools were clean, large, never over crowded , although they didn't let you swim till after 9am and I personally like a swim before breakfast.The location was perfect , just a short walk to the habour and Old Town . Theres wasnt evening entertainment but it's not that type of hotel. I would go back and certainly recommend it as good hotel.

Room Tip: A room looking onto the round pool but not above the bar

Just returned from a one week all-inclusive stay at the Mitsis Grand. I had great expectations of this hotel because of its five-star status, impressive pictures on its website and its flashy "dress code" requirements (men required to wear long trousers at dinnertime,something which I rarely see in hotels) and quite frankly I was disappointed.

Plus points:
-Excellent location: situated right on the beach, lovely views of the sea, short walk to Rhodes Old town and nice restaurants, shops and bars located close-by.
-Friendly staff for the most part, especially at the bar in the evenings.
-Breakfast buffet was very good, lacking in variation, but good.
-Wine and beer of a good standard in the all-inclusive package.
- Chinese and Italian restaurants were nice.

However the negatives outway the positives at the hotel:
-the rooms are shabby and in great need of repair: old carpets and curtains, carpet too warm for the climate here.
-the housekeeping staff made the bed every day. Sort of. That's it! No replenishing of toiletries in bathroom ALL WEEK. Bath not cleaned at times, bedsheets not changed, glasses in bedroom not changed either.
-tv in bedroom was badly-tuned, only had half of the channels it should have as per channel list in room, and was quite possibly older than I am. Surely a five-star hotel can stretch to a flatscreen tv?
-Fridge in room should have been a positive thing, but it gave up after a day!
-There is a safe in the room - again positive - but WHY do I have to pay 4€ a day to use it? I understand if the safe is located at reception or something, but it's in the room anyway?! Nobody else can use it? I don't understand why this isn't included in the room price!
- Similarly, one is unable to obtain an iron... for "safety reasons" according to reception. But you can get the laundry people to do it for you at €4 per shirt ironed. Excessive I think. Most hotels provide an iron, I for one would asssume responsibility for burning myself in this event.
- The food was ok. It wasn't bad don't get me wrong. But it was the SAME all week.......very boring indeed. I have been to all-inclusive hotels who combat this by introducing themes each night, chinese, mexican etc. not here. We went out twice for lunch and twice for dinner which we like to do anyway, but I couldnt have faced eating at the buffet another time!

I understand that Greece are in difficulty economy-wise, however you get the impression here that they really try to charge for everything they possibly can. This hotel drastically needs an update to compete with competitors. I for one wouldn't return - which is a pity, because this hotel has an excellent location going for it, but they need to up their game.

Booked this hotel with Hotels4U and thought we were having a taxi transfer from the airport. In fact we had a coach, air con poor, we had to wait for an hour for other people and then another hour on the coach dropping people off at their hotels. When on our paperwork it said 25 mins transfer?? Arrived at the hotel and first impressions were good, beautiful lavish reception area. We were on the 5th floor, lovely room with the sea view we had asked for. Food was not upto standard, poor quality meats and only 1 selection of potato. One night we didnt have any potatoes, just rice. Food not very hot and soups sometimes cold. Service for drinks was poor, had to wait ages to be asked what we wanted to drink! When I asked for a bottle of water for our meal, I was told I would have to pay for it because we were all inclusive we could only have a glass of water which was kept at the back in a jug.My husband asked to speak to the chef, he was told he was busy but someone would come and speak to us tomorrow, No one came to see us so he asked again the following night if he could speak to the chef, after a lot of excuses the chef finally came out to speak to us. We told him we had been at the hotel for over a week and we had not had any authentic greek food. He asked us what we wanted, we said we like Stifado, and he promised to cook it for us the following evening, just for the two of us. He kept to his word and we enjoyed a beautiful Stifado. The next evening the food was back to its awfullness. Thought they were cooking steak on the hot plate but it turned out to be Liver! Everyone was complaining but no one was listening. Far too many people eating in this small dining room, queues were long waiting for the food. There is an Italian and a chinese part where you can eat once in each during your stay. As we do not like Italian we only tried the chinese. Food was very tasty. Only prob was they cooked your side orders first and bought them out to you which went cold whilst you were waiting for the main meal, when we complained we were told they only had one wok? The gym and sauna were out of use being refurbished. Pool was emptied one evening and then refilled as it was quite dirty. Staff not very friendly, non of them were smiling and making us feel welcome. Hotel in a good central location, close to the old town and the new town. Luckily we met up with some fabulous people, Colin, Linda, Stephen, Pat, Sharon, Pat (AKA Thelma and Louise), Zara and Imogen, Roy and Margaret ( AKA Mr and Mrs Meldrew) we had a great laugh with these people and they really made the holiday, thank you guys we really enjoyed your company!! This is definately not a 5 star hotel, at a push I would say it was 3 star only. We were not happy.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view
