Most of all we have experienced due to the weather, and it will if we have to swim in the sea.
Reviews on holiday in Rhodes, the May holidays were contradictory.
Someone wrote that the sea is still cold and swim early.And some reviews about the rest were quite optimistic.But as we have at that time was not much of a choice, we decided to take a chance.
Reviews of Hotel Rhodes were good, specialist travel agency informed us that if we choose any five-star, is not lost.
Reviews of tourists to stay in the hotel Rhodes
We considered several options.Some of them are located near Lindos, others close to Rhodes.Most hotels, reviews were good.Where better to relax in Rhodes?When choosing, we stopped for two versions.The hotel is close to Lindos offers a heated pool, and we have been inclined to this option, but it was more expensive and we still have chosen near Rhodes.

reviews about the Ixian Grand
Now about the hotel.We rested in the Ixian Grand.This five-star hotel.Its advantage is in addition to the proximity to the city, it is located on the beach.Later, when we were walking along the waterfront, you've seen a lot more steep and expensive hotels, but they were located across the street from the beach.
Log into the sea near the Ixian Grand convenient
can resting on the loungers of the hotel, located on the green grass, just go for a swim.
This is great!This holiday was we like!The area is not very big, but beautiful.The building is surrounded by an artificial moat filled with water.
Beautiful lobby, bars and recreational areas.On the territory there are three pools, one of them with sea water.The truth pools bathed only children, but we have chosen the sea.We were lucky - the water was quite warm.We swam several times a day.In the evenings we arranged a romantic walk along the beach.
Rest rooms in the Ixian Grand
The hotel has a main body and a separate body.Room rates do not differ significantly.Therefore, all I recommend taking rooms of the main body.Overlooking the sea or not, it is to your preference.We had no view of the sea, is also quite a nice view.
But those tourists who unknowingly take rooms in separate buildings, can greatly disappointed in the town.I think that they have been negative reviews for recreation in the Ixian Grand.The fact that a sufficient number of rooms overlook the street, they certainly did not rest comme il faut.By passing the species, number of the main body better equipped.
has a Jacuzzi on the balcony.This is cool!Lying in the bath, drinking champagne and watch the reality.

We had half board.At dinner, give fish and meat in various forms.And we went to dinner at a local tavern.
How to find a good tavern - our reviews
Those who want to save money, will approach the option of buying the products in the store.Several grocery supermarkets are not far away.Their location can be found at the reception.On the first day we were so tired that we decided to have dinner in the room, buying fruits and dairy products.But our irrepressible friend gourmets were more determined.They went in search of a good tavern.
There were they long, but came back well fed and happy.Later we had a tip they always dined in the tavern.It is called in my Kaliva.Located directly on the beach, there are prepared very tasty, and the prices are quite reasonable.
How to find it?
If you go in the direction of Rhodes from the hotel, you will find many restaurants, cafes and taverns all price and service.But all of them are located on the streets.And if you go to the right, parallel to the sea, passing several small shops, you will see a close imitation windy mill.That there are a number of coastal restaurants.Kaliva is the first from the hotel Ixian Grand.Blue and white taverna.Next to it, there are several riverside restaurants, but the prices are a half times higher.Once we decided to try to change the situation and went to a nearby restaurant.Differences in the dishes I have not felt, but the score was much higher.If the sender to Kalyvia can grab a swimsuit, becauseThis inn is located right on the beach.
What to try relaxing in Rhodes - reviews
- Greek salad as it does not sound corny.How many times have I tried to repeat this simple Greek masterpiece, such as the Greek salad I did not eat anywhere else.It seems to be the most common products, but ... maybe the Greek climate make vegetables more palatable and could be generous Greek soul.
- Any seafood.Greeks prepare delicious and so fresh shrimp, squid, or you can try dorado except that in Tenerife.
- Order your food Tzatziki sauce - very tender and tasty.
- Awesome delicious baked cheese saganaki.
- signature dish - Moussaka (eggplant casserole layers of potatoes, meat, custard).Moussaka served us in the low pot.This delicious dish is very satisfying.
- general in Greece all prepared very tasty.The main thing to choose the right tavern.Our friend ordered the salad kakoy-.When he brought the dish, we discovered that it is just cooked beets.First, a bit disappointed, but try this salad with Tzatziki we "swept away" it first.
How to reach the city of Rhodes - Travel Tips
If you stay at a hotel near the city of Rhodes, then you have five options for how to get to the city of Rhodes:
- first with the tour - it will not write.
- second - walk along the seafront promenade.In our case, it was very far.But there are a number of coastal hotels, holidays in which it is possible to walk on foot to Rhodes.
- rental car do not recommend, you may face the problem of parking in the city.
- by bus.It is certainly cheaper taxis and so we naively believed that such an option is quite even wow.But having experienced it "fun" once decided - it is better to use another option.At the stop we stood for 40 minutes, we sped past three crowded bus and none of them stopped.Pass a few taxis, but they were also busy.While we do not accidentally lucky with a passing empty taxi.As a result of these experiences I advise all the latest most reliable option.
- Taxi at the reception.There is such a challenge a little more expensive than catching a taxi on the road, but it is the most reliable and comfortable.From the city to the hotel to get easier.You can go to the final bus stop.It is located between the market and the new city, buying a ticket, a little stand in a queue can be hundred percent go by bus.Or take a taxi immediately.This is how your mood and health wishes.
To summarize, I can say that our stay at Rhodes was a success.I can safely leave positive reviews on this wonderful island.
