... of running!! Yippee. Poor skipper had a bit of an upset tummy last night. Poor poor skipper. However on the bright side he will not have to use the loo for a while......... Enough said. All better this morning. All in all relaxing so far. Today we are off to Dirsek a small bay with a single restaurant that is not accessible by road. Photos etc will be uploaded as they are ...
Very beautiful old city and ruins. 300 days of sunshine a year. Visited the Knights of St John castle. We have now visited the 7 wonders of the Ancient Greek and Roman world without really trying! Very warm day again but moderately cooler at 31 than they had 3 days ago - 47c. Sailed to Symi this afternoon, a very beautiful town with colourful houses perched on the side of the harbour. Had to have a banana ...
... had left us deflated. Of course, the weather was perfect and many world class beaches were nearby so we decided to drive south until we found one that would suit us for the rest of the afternoon. We found one that was beautiful, but also somewhat crowded and right out in front of several large-scale resorts. It didn't feel right so we continued down the coast and thank goodness that we did. Awaiting us only a short distance down the road was a glorious beach that ...
I chew the human to bits and then swallow the bits of flesh floating under the water. I swim under the water searching for more stuff to eat. As I swim across the large expanse of water I run into a few submarine mines and they explode the moment I hit them burning my flesh, but the mines don't kill me so I swim to the surface to regain some of my health by eating another unlucky person. Out of nowhere a huge great white shark swims out of the depths of ...
In order to see Rhodes' most-hyped attraction, the Grand Palace of the Masters, we got an early start since we were scheduled to pick up a rental car for our journey south into the reaches of the smaller towns at noon. As usual, this early start put us out in the tourism maelstrom at a time before most had appeared and let us have a good tour of the palace without too many companions. This large and magnificent palace, began in the 1300s and re-built many ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Atlantica Princess Hotel Ixia
Just returned after two weeks with my partner and son. What can I say? Perhaps this review is tainted by the brilliant time I had all inclusive on Crete last year.
Stayed at Atlantica Princess for a week at the beginning of July. I was travelling by myself & although its not the 1st time i've done this, i am always a bit apprehensive about my accommodation. I needn't have worried, the hotel was superb, the staff friendly and helpful,(after a couple of days the waiters and bar staff all seem to have memorised your room number!) i had a great time. I stayed on all inclusive, which for me was ideal, although not everyone would want to be so tied to staying around the hotel all of the time. I would definately go back again & would not hesitate in recommending the hotel to others. There were people of all age groups staying there, but it was mainly families. I did not venture far from the hotel during my stay, (as i was making full use of the all inclusive deal!) but if i were to go back i would try and get over to Rhodes town & lindos, both of which were recommended as worth a visit.
my fianc'ee and i returned from rhodes last month, this was our second stay at the atlantica and our 3rd trip to ixia. once again the hotel was fantastic the staff are so friendly and helpful and the food was brilliant with loads of variety. we stopped half board so cant really comment on the entertainment but the reps were very good. If you are looking for somewhere to go at night then you should try the blue note restaraunt, it is right outside the hotel just 2 minutes walk, we spend most nights there listening to the live music and the food there is fantastic. The owner (timos) will make you feel so welcome and treat you like he has known you for ever as will all the waiters, we return every year and he always remembers his friends. rhodes town is beutiful both at night and in the daytime. if you are going to the atlantica you will love the place and will want to return there again.
Couldn't fault anything
Stayed here between 19/05/04 and 26/05/04, weather was fantastic got very brown, the staff were very helpful and friendly, nothing was too much for them, the hotel was spotless and the food out of this world. Plenty of sunbeds without worrying about the dreaded early morning towel competition, even had a small road train every 30 minutes to take you for a trip around the local area. Rhodes town was easily reached by taxi booked by the hotel for 12 Euros each way. Great holiday
I've just returned from the Atlantica Princess after a two week stay. First the good news. The bedrooms are a good size and well appointed. The public rooms are kept spotlessly clean and are pleasantly decorated. The restaurant is well managed and there is a good selection of food which is well presented. The restaurant staff are friendly and most have excellent english. The bar service is prompt (particularly if you befriend Alexandros!) and there is a good range of drinks on offer. There are plenty of free loungers around the pool area.
(May 2004)This was an absolutely fantastic holiday.Party of 10 adults and 6 children ageing between 1-8.The hotel staff were very very friendly and loved children! We went for two weeks and the weather was lovely. We went with Cosmos but the hotel is mainly First Choice. The entertainment staff were really good especially "Racey Tracey" from Doncaster.Make an effort and learn greek from them and they will do anything for you. The hotel is very very clean and well looked after and the bar staff on an evening are very friendly too especially Alexandros (he looks a bit like Michael Schumacer) and is lovely. For anyone going there all I can say is that you will love it and have a brilliant time.Just to help you out the hotel is a chain of hotels and the website for it www.-----------------------
My girlfriend and I have just returned from the atlantica princess hotel where i stayed a week at half board. It was fantastic. Before leaving I had checked out a fewweb sites with pictures of the hotel, i can tell you now that none of them show the real quality of the rooms or the hotel. The room we had was a twin/double room. it was on the ground floor so there was not much of a sea view but it was fantastic. It had a big double bed and a sofa-bed. It was a extremely spacious room with kitchen facilities, a balony and a lovely big bathroom. The only fault i could pick out at the hotel was the food. It was good but because it is mostly an all inclusive hotel it was served buffet style so was a bit cold sometimes. It was fantastic though. A MUST SEE is the old town of rhodes. we went 3 times throughout the week, it is a lovely place to have a meal. you must go through the day and at night as it is all lit up in the evening. We are in our early twenties and decided to have a night out in faliraki but it was poor. the best place for a lively nite out without al the "booze cruizes" is Bar street in rhodes new town. its a really good night. Overall the hotel and surrounding area is fantastic. verry clean and verry helpfull staff. I liked it so much I'm even considering going out there to work... Fantastic!

Sue's holiday ..
My sister and I stayed at the Atlantica Princess Hotel over the easter period.The hotel surpassed our expectations. You could eat your food of the floors, it was spotless. We were fully inclusive and the hotel catered for every kind of diet you could wish for. The food and service was excellent.The holiday was everything I had wished for. The flights to and from were on time, the transfer to the hotel was less than 20 minutes, the hotel staff were excellent, the local shops we used were better stocked with variety of goods than they are back home.We have come home completely refreshed, with a good sun tan after 7 days, and at least 7 lbs heavier!! but we enjoyed every minute!
MEMORIES TO CHERISH
When you want a holiday with good memories, try this hotel and friendly area. We have been 3 times now and love Rhodes.
