Just returned from a weeks holiday at the Electra Palace Trianda. We took our grandaughter who is 17 and her boyfriend who is also 17 years of age. We had a brilliant weeks holiday. The hotel staff were very efficient and friendly, the food was excellent and varied each day. The hotel and rooms were very clean and the whole area around the pool and gardens were well kept and clean.
Our whole holiday experience was good.

Just arrived back from this great hotel and could not fault it. This was our second visit, our first being five years ago and it was even better than we remembered.
The hotel is all inclusive now and for the money we paid it was excellent value.
The choice of food at meal times catered for every taste and was always well presented,
and lots of it. There are also Chinese and Italian restaurants which make a nice change.
Well worth trying.
The staff were all very pleasant and the girls on reception were very helpful.
The rooms were a good size and had a fridge and a kettle. You were also provided with
a bathrobe and slippers, a really nice touch.
The pool is one of the nicest we have seen with lots of sunbeds, there are also lots of sunbeds in the gardens which lead onto the beach. The beach itself is very pebbly and not a lot of sand. One thing that really annoyed us though was the reserving of the loungers, some people were actually laying their towels out at night to get the best spots.
The hotel should have a policy in place to deal with this.
The decor and cleanliness of this hotel was again faultless.
We had a lovely relaxing week with good food in a fantastic location, ten minutes from the airport and the same for Rhodes town. Loved it.

































the pool is one of the nicest

Just returned from a week in the Electra Palace Hotel, in Rhodes, we went with Thomas Cook. We had a fabulous time, the accommodation, food and service we received were out of this world.....I'm sure we both put on 2 stone each..... We had not booked it but we were shown into a suite and that was pure luxury as well, with towelling dressing gowns and slippers, beach towels were included. as was the full mini fridge and air conditioning. and safe.....Do not hesitate to go there as you will find everything up to 4 star if not 5 star standard, and the staff are so obviously well trained and can't do enough for their guests. The views all around the hotel, which is on the beach, were amazing and we cant wait to book up for next year...the Italian restuarant was great, although we did'nt make it to the Chinese, one, we were more than happy with the main dining room with its view and beautiful white linen, and spotless crystal glasses.....Very few children there, which suited us, and it did look like they were catering more towards adult only clientel.....entertainment was fair, the alcohol on the whole was named brands so no problems there either. Basically could'nt find a fault....if there was one it was with us only booking 1 week.

my partner and i came back on 13th june 2009, fantastic hotel, wonderful choice of food
and drink, very clean, the down sides, hotel staff not very friendly, not alot of entertainment
for children or adults, and the waiters/waitresses would take your plate away as soon as
you put your knife and fork down, only one lift working for the entire week.
weather was fantastic, be aware that you will be badly bitten my the mossies, even though we took repellent and a plug in, we had to go to the pharmacy for cream
all in all a wonderful week and would return again

This is the first review I have written for Trip Advisor despite saying after every holiday my wife and I have been on that I will definitely write one this time, then the next and next etc etc.

So the Electra Palace in Trianda is a 5 star All Inclusive (Thomas Cook), the hotel has been refurbished in 2008 and since this was our 2nd visit we were impressed with the improvements since we were last there in 2005.

Rooms

The rooms are very spacious, clean and provided you are on the 3rd-5th floors then the views are great regardless whether you are pool or sea facing. A tip would be to email the hotel directly before you go and request the floor you would prefer, we have done this twice now and each time we have been given exactly what we requested no questions. My advice would be to go for 5th floor pool facing (522 was ours) sea view is just as nice but there is a supplement which considering the views from the pool view rooms I don't think it's necessary. The only niggling thing would be the fact the music from the evening entertainment is slightly louder from the pool view side.

Food

This is one area I get frustrated with when reading reviews. The food was great there was a vast selection for both lunch and dinner everyday, there was always a fish, chicken and red meat dishes as well as a massive variety of salad and cold food. The deserts were just as varied and tasty. There was always selection of grilled food available at lunch and dinner. Breakfasts were just as nice with the usual full English selection, omelettes, pancakes and crepes were alternated on a daily basis.

Sunbathing

As with some All-Inclusive hotels the race to get a good spot at the pool or beach can be a tough one, personally I got up each morning at 7am and put our towels down in the spot we preferred but to be honest there were more than sufficient sun beds available it was just the parasols which disappeared quickly. If it's a quiet spot you are looking for there are some good grassy areas just behind the beach, previously these were only available with and additional cost however since the hotel has changed to 5 stars there is no extra charge. My advice would be to get up early to claim one of these.

Resort

Trianda itself is quite a large town and it wasn’t until our 2nd trip to the Electra that we discovered most of it. If you go out the front of the hotel and head for the beach and turn right along the front you cross an area of waste ground then a bar/restaurant called Patty’s, walk passed this and down a street passed various hotels and shops. When you get to the end of this street there’s a fork in the road either left or right will take you to another main road when you reach this street turn left and head for the beach. The road turns right at the front and for about ½ a mile there are a selection of bars and restaurants expensive and reasonably priced. The Windmill café is well worth a visit very unusual but a lovely place to enjoy a refreshing drink.

You can also come out the hotel main entrance and turn left, if you walk up this road you will eventually come to the main road which goes round the whole Island. Turn left and you can walk along to the centre of Trianda, this is a quicker way but the main road is very busy and not the nicest to walk along.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Electra Palace on both occasions and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a relaxing holiday in the sun with good food and tranquil surroundings.
