Lovely hotel
4 years 11 months ago
We were on the 3rd floor overlooking the plunge pool, it was like a concrete jungle small balcony, and overlooked by other hotel's, we asked within 2minutes of entering our room if we could be moved we had to wait 2 days as the hotel was full, but that wasn’t a problem and as promised, we were moved just across the corridor to a bigger room and view's to both beaches. Complimentary bottle of red wine in each room was a lovely touch.

Hotel is very clean in all areas; just need's a bit of TLC in places. There could have been more choice of food however.

All staff, apart from one lady on reception, were lovely we felt that she had to talk to us because it was her job and she didn't really want to.

Lovely area outside facing the prom/beach to sit and have drink/food or just watch the world go by.

Hotel is in a good location the harbour about 10minutes walk also plenty of bars/restaurant.

The old town is past the harbour about 15min to walk depending on how fast you walk. Plenty to see on the way.
No entertainment in the hotel, not that much in the resort neither. We would visit hotel again all in all we had a lovely holiday.

This is my second report in 3 years on this hotel. As always, very clean. Excellent food with plenty of choice and of an extremely high quality. Located right opposite Elli Beach, a short stroll from the Aquarium in one direction and Mandrakis Harbour the other. The staff are superb, I had a problem with my hearing aids and the receptionist found a repair shop and arranged for me to go and get the problem fixed. The only downside is, I believe, the sous-chef in the morning, who seems to regard smiling as a sin, and has all the expression of one of Madam Tussauds wax dummies. He does, however, make excellent omelettes. I would be more than happy to holiday here again.

Rooms a little tired looking but always very clean and tidy.Staff from chamber maids waiters/waitresses, restaurant staff and reception staff where an absolute credit to the hotel.

The restaurant which served the best buffet menus (congratulation chefs)and the very professional and polite restaurant manager Nik made our stay unforgetable.

Many thanks to you all.

Down side perhaps is the rather small swimming pool with few sun beds,but having said that, you have a beach either side of the hotel which more than compensates.

Again thank you very much for wonderful holiday.

A first class hotel in a good location in Rhodes Town.

Friendly, helpful staff. Well furnished rooms in good decorative order. Excellent food and service in the restaurant.

Ideal for romantics and honeymooners.

Although this is rated as a 4 star I would say this was only 3. The rooms were cleaned everyday but the carpets felt a bit grim & dirty. Stairways were dirty & not cleaned once while we were there.

Restaurant fantastic, could not fault the choices of food nor the staff, very attentative and nothing was too much trouble. Shame the bar staff did not have the same attitude, had to stand at the bar for at last 15 minutes while they cleaned the glasses!!

Hardly any english were staying and as soon as the bar staff realised you were english, they ignored you!

Only the excellent location & the food save this hotel, the rest lets it down immensely.

The Ibiscus is a very good hotel in an excellent location.

We are frequent visitors to Rhodes but this was our first time travelling with our baby son and our first time staying in Rhodes Town. The hotel was chosen primarily for its location as, at the time of booking, there were only limited reviews available. Fortunately we were very pleasantly suprised by the hotel.

The hotel, having been renovated a couple of years ago, is modern and just across a fairly quiet road from Elli beach which is the best beach in Rhodes Town.

Rooms are fairly spacious with excellent air conditioning and a good size fridge. The cot provided for our baby was virtually brand new. The room was spotless as were the public areas of the hotel.

All staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help us enjoy our stay. The restaurant staff would always race to get us a highchair (again virtually brand new) and always made sure there was something available our 6 month old son would eat.

The food was typical greek hotel buffet fare with plenty of variety and hot dishes served piping hot. There was usually at least one dish cooked exhibition style whilst you waited. We only had dinner in the hotel about 3 times but this was through choice and fairly normal for us, it was not a reflection of the quality of the food.

The only slight downside to this hotel is the very small pool and limited sunbeds (6 plus a few tables). However, being so close to a nice beach this was not a problem.

There is only limited entertainment available in the hotel but with its location there is always plenty going on nearby.

On balance this is an excellent hotel and rates highly compared to some of the more luxurious hotels we have stayed in on Rhodes. It does not have all the facilities of the larger hotels but, other than the pools, we rarely make use of them anyway.

We are going back to Rhodes next week (31/8/05) and will be staying in the Ibiscus again.
