... but we could view it from the outside. Back down the hill again to the town and then further down to the beach in the beautiful cove. Rented sunbeds and spent a couple of hours relaxing and swimming. The bus ride back was only an hour and much more enjoyable. We had an early dinner (artichokes stuffed with lamb, grilled veggies such as zucchini, aubergines and peppers, grilled ...
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 ...
... plane to Rhodes was much smoother than expected but nevertheless I was relieved to land. The hotel here was a disappointment after the villa. After a beer at the nearby soccer bar, we went out to explore Rhodes town including Old Town and the ...
... street of the Knights, framed with medieval buildings, and had a look at the little shops in the old town. I quickly acquired a pair of ornate hand made earrings in a typical Greek design, symbolising the circle of life / a long life. We stopped for a gyro at a local taverna, where the highlight was undoubtedly the mountainous scoop of tzatziki we were given together with some heated pita bread. The ...
... out and threw the contents into the sea. I’m not sure that I’ll ever be able to eat octopus again….but this is the life of a fisherman. They found a second octopus and did the same, explaining that they have to be at least the size of your palm – otherwise they’ll be put back. I think I’m traumatized for life.
This harbour is surrounded by massive cliff faces which we later learned are famous for rock climbing. There ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Oceanis Hotel Ixia
The hotel has 5 floors served by 2 small lifts. There is a spiral staircase with a well worn carpet on it which made it a safety issue. Food was not good and was repetative. We arrived to be told we had 2 beds and a cot. I had checked twice with travel company to make sure we had 3 beds as our 2yr old grand-daughter will not sleep in cot. The person on reception was rude and irritable although he eventually sorted out a room with 3 beds. Trying to be conciliatory we said that we would complain to travel company when we got back home. The man said sharply 'why complain when I have sorted out the problem?'. He marred our holiday from the start. Many guests were making complaints of having cockroaches crawling over them at night. We made many friends and cockraoaches were the talking point for mostly everyone, however we were lucky that we did not encounter any although we were constantly on our guard.
We have just returned from a trip at The Oceanis Hotel in Ixia Rhodes. We went AI and there is always the chance that the food will start to get boring and repetitive...not the case here. Every night there was a good selection of food for both meat eaters and vegetarian. The AI package included all local drinks, Vodka tastes a little like Ouzo but you get used to it! There are 2 bars, one outside which is open all day and one just off reception for the evenings. The barman in the evening is fabulous, always pleasant and remembers your order for the rest of the holiday!
Just back from a wonderful stay at the oceanis hotel the pool was great complete with its own island, plenty of sunbeds for everyone. we stayed alinclusive, the food was great with something for everyone. it was my daughters birthday when we were there and were able to get a birthday cake for her which the restaurant manager and waitresses presented whilst singing happy birthday, in the restaurant nothing was too much trouble they were fantastic and a credit to the hotel. The only thing i think that let the hotel down was the lack of childrens entertainmet. The rooms were cleans and i would definitly return to the hotel again
My wife & I chose Rhodes as our first visit to a Greek island. We were thoroughly recommended it by all who had stayed there before.
Returned from Oceanis 24th May.The hotel pool area is lovely, waterfall, island, bridges,palm trees,plenty of sunbeds.the reception is big,clean and modern.We were on an all inclusive, the resturant is nice with great views over the sea and pool area. The food was good with a reasonable choice except for deserts. the staff were very pleasant.
Just returned from a super week in the hotel oceanis ixia rhodes. The pool area was really nice lots of comfortable chairs complete with cusions, on the decking area, and enough sunloungers for everyone. We were all inclusive, the food was very good and plentyful, nice poolside snacks morning and afternoon, if you wanted. Rooms were very clean, and nothing was a problem for the chambermaids. The only complaint was the bar at night, the staff tried their best, but were really under pressure (not enough staff on duty) Apart from this little problem, which i am sure they will sort out before the high season we did have a great, relaxing week, would go back again for sure. 13 euro"s in a taxi from the airport, 6 euro"s into Rhodes, Great hotel, great location. would recommend .
we went to oceanis on 22/04/ till 28/04/2006 and had a fine vacation.
the food was realy good,all the staff was very friendly and helpfull with a smile at all times;
especialy the responsible for the restaurant "Spyros" and the beachbar responsible"Yannis"all by all a nice place to stay with clean rooms that are indeed a bit older furnished,would recomand it to anyone
We stayed at the Oceanis in September.
Swimming pool was excellent, the restaurant was fantastic with food for everyone...
What a fantastic place this hotel is in a great location, very beautiful and they are now refurbishing the bedrooms this should easily make this 4 star hotel into an immediate 5 star.
