If you are looking for a quite place, which is located aside from the city's noise. Place which has a peaceful beach and a clean pool, This hotel might be perfectly suitable your needs. The hotel has simple and very comfort design, the rooms are just fine for 3 people. We took "All inclusive" package, and it was very convenient, the drinks and snacks are always there (at the beach / pool area) so you are ever not being hungry. The food is just fine, not a Micheline restaurant, but more than enough for a good breakfast/lunch/dinner. The hotel's staff is very welcomed and always willing to help, as it was already mentioned, the pool is very clean (both of them) and due to it's size, it seems that it always empty. There is an internet at the lobby (only).

The Shampoo and Body lotion/soap are not provided - bring your own cause the prices in outside store are much more expensive than in regular super market. The beach towels are distributed only 30min a day (1p.m to 1:30 p.m) so if you arrive after this time (like we did) no towels for you until the next day...

Room Tip: Take the Bungalow. and not the one with the pool access but the one which is on the second floor (mu...

We just finished a two week stay at the Alex Beach and we can not even imagine a better experience. We traveled as a family of two adults and two children ages 7 and 3.

Location: The hotel is located in the small village of Theologos. It is about a 10-15 minute cab ride from the airport soutwest of Rhodes Town. Since the hotel is so close the airport, you do get some noise from aircraft taking off and landing. However, the noise did not bother me or my family. As for nightlife in Theologos, I didn't really notice anything going on. There are a couple of stores next to the hotel that sell the assorted things that tourists tend to buy while on vacation (post cards, memorabilia, etc.) along with some grocery type items. We bought several bottles of water for day trips at the store next door (40 Euro cents for a 1/2 litre).

Chech-In: We arrived at 11 in the morning and went straight to our room. We did arrive just before the high season started (Kids last day of school was 13 June) and the hotel was not yet at capicity.

Room: We had read that there are several types of rooms ranging from a standard double room and family room with a seperate sleeping room in the main hotel to bungalows. We stayed in a small bungalow with one bed and one fold out couch that could sleep two. Our room was very clean and meet all of our needs. Our Bungalow was midway between the main hotel and the beach in a great location next to the kids pool.

Food: Breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets. Always something good to find and the staff was incredibly polite and hard working. Mr. Takis, the head waiter, was always helpful and went out of his way everyday to be helpful. Also, eat at least one dinner at the beach. The food is good and you can't beat the view. Finally, my kids thought that the availability of ice cream all day was a pretty sweet deal.

Bar: A good selection of drinks included in the all inclusive plan. The beer is pretty good and the wine wasn't too bad either.

Pools: A great big plus for the hotel. The main pool area has a large and a smaller kids area. There is also a kids pool and a larger pool with small water slides and one large water slide. We spent hours at the pools and since the area is so large it never seems crowded.

Beach: The beach is fairly small. The beach starts out as sand for about 30 meters and then turns to small stones as you get nearer the water. You most definatly need shoes for the Sea. The sand was ok, however, we had problems trying to build sandcastles due to the dryness of the sand. There were 25-30 umbrellas and probably twice as many chairs.

Animation: The animation team was active and a lot of fun. They spoke several languages (German, English and Polish). The team members were always activly recruiting kids to participate in the club. Both of our kids spent several with the kids club. Sporting activities were basically water polo, soccer, and beach volleyballl. There is a basketball court and a ball available, but noone plays. There also a fairly nice tennis court.

Summary: This is a GREAT family hotel! We don't recommend this hotel for couples as it is set up 100% for families. We had a great time and would go back in a heart beat! The staff was very accomodating even when we requested a late check out due to a late flight (2030). For 25 Euro they gave us another room to spend the day in.

Room Tip: Get a Bungalow next to the pool or go with the rooms with the upstairs loft.

Just came back from two weeks holiday at Alex Beach. My general opinion the hotel is ok, but not exceptional. Below some more specific remarks:

Location:
The hotel is located in a small village of Theologos (also referred as Tholos). Apart from Alex Beach there are 2-3 more hotels and a few shops in the village, so it is quite calm and quiet. On the other hand, nowhere to go for a walk. There is a very good bus transport to Rhodes Town – it takes about 50 minutes to get there, buses are timely and reliable, but sometimes crowded. Hotel is only 15 minutes by car/bus from the airport, which means planes are close and it may get noisy from time to time (It was not bothersome to me).
The hotel is at the sea, with the direct access to its own beach (not obvious on Rhodes). The beach is about 250 meters from the main building, and it is even closer from the bungalows located in the garden.

Rooms:
Reasonable size and kept clean. No complaints at all.

Food:
Breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets. Sometimes repeatable, but usually there was something tasty to find. Mixture of Greek specialties (e.g. nice mousakas, disappointing gyros), Italian (pizza, pastas) and some international cuisine. It is worth to have one dinner in the grill restaurant at the beach, but mostly because of views and atmosphere, not food.

Swimming Pools:
Two fresh water swimming pools in the garden. Reasonable size of both of them, in the smaller one there are a few small slides for small kids and one bigger slide for older children and adults (photos attached). Definitely pools are strong side of Alex Beach.

Service:
Friendly and helpful staff at the reception as well as in restaurant and bars. The amenities are generally kept clean. The only problem I see is the sunbeds at the pools and on the beach. The crazy “reservation with towels” system, which makes you either get up at 7am in the morning and leave your towel on the sunbed, or you have no sunbed whatsoever.

Animation team:
The weak side (apart from the sunbeds) was for me the animation part. The hotel is advertised as a family friendly resort, so I assume the animation team is part of the package. Since vast majority of guests were German speaking (probably 80-90%), the animation program (including Kids Clubs) was in German only. Theoretically some of the animators were speaking English (one of them even some Polish) but in practice everything was for German speaking guests only. I believe bilingual service (including English) should not be such a big deal. Despite the language I generally believe the animation activities were quite boring and not very attractive.

My final opinion is the hotel is above average but not superb. Since it was not very expensive, I would agree it is value for money, particularly for the German speaking guests.

Alex Beach is basically a family hotel, but for me proved to be a good option for accomodation near the aerport (I need to be in Rhodes aerport once every month). Excellent breakfast and friendly staff.

Our stay at Alex Beach Hotel was fabulous. Travelling with my boyfriend, Alex Beach was perfect for a romatic getaway. The staff were excellent; very friendly and helpful, they answered all our of questions and gave us some great suggestions too. The views were amazing - just what you need on holiday! And the rooms were great too; very clean and decorated beautifully. But by far the best part about the holiday was trying all the different and amazing greek food! I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone, particularly those looking for a romantic getaway.

Great for small children. very good pool, slide, kinder garden, sandy beach with stons. A lot of shade in garden around the pool area.

Hotel is all inclusive (greek style). Food whas OK (nothing better than that).

Good animation for children 7 - 14 years. Kids Disco is good solution for evening out (bar for parents is near by).

Room s are small and not to beautiful. Take Bungallows by the Pool. Thats much nicer. Thay all have teraces in the garden in pool area.

Location of the Hotel is good. 10 minutes from airport, and some 30 minutes from Rhodos.
