We woke up early to walk into town to catch the bus to Lindos. Bus 17 turned out to be a lemon! We got the last 2 seats at the very back but hot air was pouring out from under the seat for the entire hour and a half trip. At Lindos we walked down the hill into the winding streets of the town and then back up to the Acropolis. Unfortunately it was closed due to a general strike ...
In the late 7th century A.D., Rhodes was fortified against attack from Arabs. Over the years it was further fortified and became an impregnable city from attacks from Turks, Franks and Arabs. We explored the wall around the city and the waterfront area. Swim on the beach across from our hotel. Very ...
Leaving the beauty and tranquility of Maheri and the villa was difficult. Mrs. Jenny and Costa gave us a gift of bags of oregano and mountain tea as well as a bottle of olive oil prepared in the traditional way with Costa's olives. The flight on ...
... China made from toxic by products - his words not mine). At 30 Euro a pair for hand made, genuine leather sandals, which also double as souvenirs of Rhodes, we thought they were a bargain, and each left with a pair of new shoes. If you ever find yourself in Rhodes, seek out Apokourastos' shoe shop near the fountain with the sea horses, you won't be sorry and also won't leave without a new pair of leather ...
... black and realized that they were covered in mud from head to toe. It seems there’s some type of mud pit that must have special properties – anti-wrinkle? anti-aging? – but we left before we had a chance to find out. An older man pulled up to our boat in a small skiff and sold us some Datca almonds and some pistachios from his farm, for 10 Lira (about $4.50 CAD). He had lots of other stuff that he tried to sell us too, but we said no thanks. As ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Ixian Grand
Fantastic holiday would no hesitation in recomending this hotel and cannot wait to go back.
Terrible for children
I stayed in this hotel with my huband and two children 3 and 14 month old. The hotel was lovely and clean we couldnt fault it in any way, exept it doesnt cater for children at all. At meal times it was a nightmare the food was lovely but not for children. if my fourteen month old baby dropped food on the floor the head waiter would be on the floor cleaning it up moaning about it, eventually my husband went to speak to the hotel manager as it was embarrasing he got in reply 'look after your children better then' Other than that it is a lovely hotel and the animation team are absolutly fantastic the only other thing the night time entertainment is outside at the side of the pool so if youve got young kids you will have to have eyes in the back of your head
We spent a really relaxing week at this hotel. There was a personal welcome at reception where we were ushered to a seat and given a drink before completing forms and handing over passports.
The rooms were very clean and comfortable as was the rest of the hotel. The selection of food at the buffet restaurant was good. Swimming pool facilities were good, although there were perhaps not enough sun beds for all.
The animation team were very hard working and friendly. We had a very nice holiday and would reccomend this hotel to our friends. Can't wait to go back!
We have just returned from our first holiday to Greece on the beautiful island of Rhodes. We stayed at the 4star Hotel Elina in the resort of Ixia. We found it to be a first class quality hotel - well presented clean, tidy and well maintained. This hotel is to be 5star in 2006 and is to be renamed the Ixian Grand. The welcome is a pleasant experience and not the usual hustle and bustle associated with checking in - it was very sedate and calming with a nice cold drink awaiting. Could have done with that drink being an ice cold alcoholic long one though. Porter service was good too.
stayed in this beautiful hotel for our 28th wedding anniversary.
We returned to our room after lunch on our anniversary to find a bottle of sparkling wine ( in ice bucket) and a bowl of fruit. That night we went for our evening meal in the al a carte resturant to have an anniversary cake sparkler and all very nice.
rooms are very clean an well maintained bath robes could be larger.
Beach towels are good but they need a better system for the changing of same.
Had no problem leaving our belongings in our room or by the pools!!!!
Elina hotel was brilliant
the elina hotel was beautiful, the food was great and the staff were friendly and helpful. The animation team were great fun and good with the kids, we will definitely be going back!
Loved the Elina it is in a superb setting
We had a superb holiday at the Elina. we were there from the 6th July until the 21st .The hotel is excellent clean and well looked after. The food was plentiful and above average. Lots to do for children and adults alike. The pools are fabulous and there are plenty of sun beds to go around. the second week was busier so you had to be up and about early to get the best spot. Not once did I hear of anyone having anything stolen. We felt very safe during our stay.
myself,my wife and my 3yr old son have just returned from 2 weeks A.I.at the hotel elina.very classy hotel,good food,beautiful cocktails,good standard of accomodation.the first 10 days were bliss,we were going to re-bookagain for next year until we arrived back in our room one early evening to find that our camcorder,the carry bag that it was in and the charger had been taken from our room.the charger was at the other end of the room,so the thief obviously had seen this prior to the theft.there was no forced entry as the police were called,so the only other way in was with a key,as the door was not left open.there was nothing else stolen,not even sunglasses or some euros that were left in a drawer under the camcorder.i spoke to the manager the following morning after a sleepless night and he refused to believe that a member of his staff had stolen my property,and even questioned if i had owned the camera to begin with,we promptly moved to another hotel!
On of the best in Rhodes
It's the second time I've visited this beautiful hotel. Friendly people and atmosphere, perfect location(beachfront) for exploring Rhodes and beautifully renovated rooms and public areas. Great food and beverage quality and superb animation team. Strongly recommended to those wanting to enjoy a luxurious stay at the best price.
