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.Read More
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.
