We ( 2 adults & 1 eight year old) arrived on 19th October and were there for a week on all inc basis. First impressions were good as the reception area is modern and we were greeted with a friendly welcome. We were given the room key and directions to room and was told to make our way to the snack area for food and drink if we wished.

We were alocated a room not overlooking the pool, although we still did have a slight sea view. Overall we were happy with the room. It was clean on arrival and kept spotless by the cleaner on a daily basis. We always had hot water and the shower was very powerful and the balcony was spacious. A minor point to mention is this was a standard double room and they squeeze another bed in for a child which gives you less room to move about in and room for cases. But as we wernt in the room that often it didnt realy matter.
The pool area was great, with plenty of sunbeds to go around. The animation team were very good and kept you as busy and as entertained as you wanted. We tried our hands at table tennis and darts. The boule was a very good laugh.....Never did get a medal. The women won I think 5 days running !! Thanks to Artur for teaching us Boule, Chelsea for keeping our son entertained in the kids club, Ash trying his best at getting us in the sub Zero pool for water polo and Anika for the morning stretch and table tennis. And not forgetting the very funny shows. Well done to you all.
On all inclusive holidays its always a bit of a gamble on what the food and drink will be like. But i have to say the food at breakfast / lunch and dinner was realy very good. A wide selection and we never had a bad meal. It made a pleasant change to stay somewhere where the restaurant Manager was almost always smiling and was friendly. As for the drinks, well you could have as much as you like and there was a great selection too both pop and alcaholic. Some friends discovered they served baileys (greek equivilant) When we ordered some we were given possibly the same as a half pint measure !! and then when you went back again you got the same again !! Im still smiling about those measures now. Overall the food and drinks were faultess and if people do complain about it then realy they should consider staying in whatever country they are from. The bad reviews we read on this hotel before going are totaly unjustified.
We had a day trip in Rhodes town. We caught a bus ( 5 euros) and a taxi back (9 euros) It was a nice break and well worth a visit.
Overall we all had a great week with no rain and met some lovely people. Thankyou to all involved with Avra Beach. Paul michelle & Nathan x

This was our third fortnight at Avra Beach in the last 18 months. We have enjoyed every holiday very much end fully intend to return as soon as we can. The first time we booked we were quite apprehensive after reading some of the negative reviews, but when we got there we were delighted. The hotel is very well run, very friendly and clean. The rooms are fairly basic, but comfortable and very clean. This holiday we had an excellent room overlooking the sea. It was very large with a window and a good sized balcony and a fantastic view.

The pool area is lovely.

All the staff in the hotel are extremely friendly and welcoming and will do whatever they can to help you.

There is a good choice of food in the restaurant and we enjoyed every meal (and we can be quite fussy) - it is nice to take the food out onto the terrace and take in the beautiful view while you eat.

We spoke to many other families and couples who also loved the hotel and want to go back again.

The major strength of ths hotel is the animation team, led by Artur, who work extremely hard to keep everyone very well entertained all day. There is a full programme of activities for adults and for children. If you prefer not to get involved you can just relax and enjoy the sun and the music around the pool. One night a week there is a Greek night, with Greek musicians and dancing and on the other nights the animation team provide the entertainment which is always very enjoyable and great fun. They kick off each evening with a mini disco which the kids love, followed by the show (often there is a bingo game just before the show).

We always eat out for the odd meal and there are some lovely places to visit such as Lindos and Rhodes Town, but we enjoy the hotel and the entertainment so much that we tend to spend most of our time there and have our days out when the animation team take their day off.

Thank you very much Artur, Aniko, Ash, Chelsea and Jenny for making our holiday so special and thank you Artur also for putting on Ladies Night!! We'll be back.

Room Tip: We had an end room at the front (North side) of the hotel witha balcony and window overlooking the sea. The room was much larger than the rooms we have had before and we had an excellent view. The rooms in the main hotel overlooking the pool are also nice, but smaller, and have the sun all afternoon.

We have just returned from the Avra beach following a one week stay from 12th Oct 2011, we booked this the day before we went as a last minute online deal and saved £100 compared to others that were there. We were all inclusive as were almost everyone there. I read the reviews before we went and booked it based on there were more good reviews than bad and we were certainly not dissapointed so I would say dont listen to the many bad reviews on here and book it if your looking at Rhodes.

It probably isn't a 4 star compared to british standards but your in Greece not Britain so its their rating not ours, we can all post photographs of broken bathroom ceiling slats and water leaking through the ceilings, but this is the minority of cases and can happen in any hotel, how much time are you going to spend in the bathroom looking at the ceiling anyway?? The hotel was very very clean, the maids changed towels and cleaned rooms every day, the staff were friendly if you made the effort to speak to them and the location is a good base for exploring the sights. It is only 7km from the airport which is 17 euro taxi fare or 2 euro on public bus.

The bus stops outside the hotel and the driver announces the location over the tannoy so you can't get lost. Rhodes town is 2 euro on the local bus which runs every 15 mins and a visit to Rhodes old town is a must as its absolutely stunning. A trip to Lindos is also a must for the same reasons and its narrow streets and no vehicles makes it unique to Rhodes, a trip here costs 5 euros from Rhodes Old town which you have to go to first, or you can hire a car for under 30 euro a day.

There are a number of bars within walking distance of the hotel and a beer outside the hotel costs between 2.50 and 3 euro a pint, there are also a number of taverna's where a meal for two with drinks costs about 30-40 euro so its cheap enough to eat out.

The hotel food is as you would expect and the same as what I have had at every AI place I have been to, there is plenty and it is wide in variety although its repetative and enough is enough after a week of it, but we ate out a few times too which varied the diet. Dinner and lunch consists of salad, hot starters and hot main courses with at least 2 veggie and 4 meat options as well as pasta. It was all edible and we had no real issues with it.

The hotel drinks are ok, the beer is very gassy but it dies down after 30 mins and is more drinkable, the only down fall is it is served in half pints which is a shame. The other local drinks were ok, vodka and orange did the trick for me after dinner when I didn't want any more gassy drinks. You dont get questioned if there is only 2 of you and you ask for 4 drinks so you can drink one and let the other de-gas slightly.

There is an animation team that work very hard and also a kids club, the entertainment is the same as all hotels and its not my cup of tea, however those that participated did so every night and seemed to enjoy it. There is also a lot of daytime activities which they ask you to join in with but certainly dont pester you, if you say no they are polite and walk off, if you find a quieter part of the pool they leave you alone after the first day as they know your not bothered.

This side of the island is more windy than the Falaraki side and is good for wind surfing and the wind is welcome on some warmer days. We had a couple of cooler days and one of these it rained for a few hours but it is the middle of October, it was still warm enough for shorts and once the rain stopped it was a beautiful day.

I would say this is a good clean base to explore the island, and for what you pay for AI its not going to break the bank if you eat out a couple of times in the week to.

Room Tip: ask for an odd number room if you want the afternoon sun as this is west facing

The Avra Beach Hotel, a bit of a disappointment supposed to be 4* but would struggle in a lot of places to get 2*, Entertainment OK but ends at 11pm as does pretty much everything at the Hotel. The food was the same every day, not bad but not much choice even on themed nights. Drinks were good though and easily got with more or less anything you wanted and as much as you could drink (3 beers was plenty for me). Plenty of sun loungers but not much sunny places to put them and no sand on the small thin pebble beach. The room was OK twin hard beds, air-con worked well, TV and plenty of power points. A TV in the room with only BBC world new in English. An internet and games room just about covers it.
The resort is very quiet a few bars restaurants and souvenir shops is about everything on offer. A 2 euro bus ride takes you to Rhodes and the Old Town is the best thing there, nice and lively with shops bars and restaurants but once you’ve spent a day there you’ve covered it.
I won't be returning 5 days was more than enough.

As a footnote I’d like to thank RYANAIR for the 2 day delay in our flight out to Rhodes then just to make sure we had a miserable journey home too they delayed our flight for another 8 hours, thank you RYANAIR that’s the last time I use your airline.

First of all the Hotel in general was clean, tidy and cleaners did their job everyday without fail. Restaurant manager was a little creepy with his fake smiles and gestures but the food and main layout of restaurant was ok. Pool was a little dirty at times and weren't cleaned until the end of every night. Entertainment was 'shocking' it let the hotel down seriously. The staff had no potential to do anything, working individually and not part of a so called 'animation team' in anyway. The main guy 'Artur' who did very little apart from shout from the backstage and speak bad english through a mic and play a boring bingo game that we couldn't understand would only talk to guests he thought he had a chance on taking back to his room or wanted to buy something. The Bulgarian girl 'Aniko' was like a school bully (very rude), you don't want to see this kind of thing on holiday, she would also force people into buying things, I recall her taking 1 couples 20 Euro of the table 1 afternoon telling them they had to buy a shirt!? What is that all about huh!!?? Ash, Chelsea aren't very good but can you blame them working with these 2?
