Of all Ixia’s hotels, this one’s the nearest to the beach. And it’s just 10 minutes from Rhodes Town, too.
This hotel has some great coastal views, thanks to its position right on the beach. Behind the bay is a family-sized pool and, behind that, gardens filled with trees.
You’re just a minute’s walk from Ixia’s shops. And it’s only a 10-minute bus ride from the island capital, Rhodes Town.

Great hotel but shame about entertainment
Stayed here for two weeks during May. I have been here often over the last 6 years and always found the hotel to be well run and the staff to be really welcoming and delightful hosts and it was the same this visit. It was good to see that the hotel had some refurbishment and the changes certainly have made a positive difference and thank you to the staff for making the two weeks Very enjoyable. Whilst we had a great two weeks break, sadly the entertainment was nowhere near as good as previous years which was really disappointing. The Animation Greece team always managed to build a very positive rapport with guests and created a fun time for all age groups. Sadly, the new team fell well short of previously created expectations. I certainly hope that this is resolved before my daughter and son in law return in September. More
This is our second visit to Avra Beach and we were pleasantly suprised to see they have had a makeover in the bar and snack bar area. The snacks were so nice compared to last year and the children loved the pizzas. We were visiting Rhodes to attend a family wedding and had a full schedule planned so didn't get to spend as much time as we would have liked to at the hotel. The rooms were cleaned every day and we could always find something we liked to eat in the restaurant. The entertainment was OK but not as good as last year but it may have been because it was early in the season. On the whole this is a nice hotel with friendly staff and the lady in the small shop is very nice too. We did go into Falaraki a couple of times which you need to get a bus into Rhodes Town and catch another bus. If you go to the water park there is a courtesy bus from Rhodes Town. We did a boat trip from Falaraki too but no buses go to the harbour so we got a taxi from the hotel which cost 27 euro which I thought was quite a lot. We would visit Avra Beach again but probably summer time as it rained a few times and we had a storm .More
Entertainment a disappointment
I stayed at the Avra Beach hotel with my boyfriend for a week at the beginning of June. The hotel is in an amazing location and from the pool bar you can see some amazing sunsets!!! The food was a little repetitive but that's standard on most holidays so we weren't too overly bothered. The staff within the hotel were extremely friendly especially Kiriakos from the pool bar who was our personal favourite!!! The rooms were comfortable and nice, a little basic but again that's standard on holidays! The entertainment was ok. The guy seemed to concentrate on selling Disco Trips to faliraki for 20€ a trip more than entertaining. Not quite the entertainment we were expecting! The wifi we also had to pay for so any sort of entertainment seemed to come with a hidden cost! Apart from that we really enjoyed our holiday at Avra Beach and would like to return at some point in the future! More
One of the best
Firstly, i have no idea why anyone would write such a poor review for this Hotel, yes, there were some things that could be better (in my oppinion) however can anyone name a place that doesn't need a little improvemenet? The location of the hotel wasn't very central, it's located on a busy road, which during peak time could be difficult to cross however be patient and someone will stop to let you cross. The hotel has its own beach, pebbled but still, waking up to the view of the Aegean sea with Turkey clearly visable on a beautifully clear day isn't something to moan about, either sitting on the outside of the restaurant for your breakfast/lunch/dinner, the view is equally as gorgeous. There are some shops and a few bars/restaurants located on the otherside of the road, there's a sports bar and a brilliant little itallian restaurant 30 seconds to the right of the hotel as you leave, not to mantion a supermarket literally 5 minutes away, all in all with the Greek economy being as it is, you can't complain. The food could have been an improvement, baring in mind, £600+ for ll inclusive, the food wasn't as expected, breakfast being noticibly the worst, cooked food was basic (egg, greek bacon, toast and freshly cooked bread) however the sausages were dreadful, one day they would have a smoked frankfurter which was OK, the next there would be a chiritzo sausage which literally had no tatse and had texture like rubber. There was a large selection of cereals, yoghurt, fruit, toast and the best was the selection of pancakes and waffles, that's mostly what myself and the rest of my party ate. If you fancy a change, i would reccomend a bar called Glory Days FBI, their full English is literally the best in Ixia, just turn left out the hotel, walk down the road for 10 minutes, and you're there, be careful though, you do get hassled a lot by other restaurants to join them, something i didn't like. We didn't really eat lunch, if we were hungly, we'd have a snack from the pool snack bar, although basic, made a little more effort than the restaurant. Evening meal didn't have much choice either, salad and then a themed night, again, my choice was the bar FBI's much better choice and supprisingly cheap. The selection of drinks were fantastic, mainly local brewed or bottled, but who cares, beer is beer. Daytime around the pool was fantastic, decent size pool, beach and games room, everything you need. Entertainment was great, they came round speaking to you, but never hassled you to get involved, something i hate. The tiles aroung the pool did get slippery so be careful, with no lifeguard this could be dangerous for the little ones. There was never a shortage of sunbeds, either on the beach or around the pool, some people i suppose are just picky. Rooms were pretty basic, typically what you would get anywhere, for me, i wasn't there to spend all day in the room, air-conditioning was great, maids were friendly and always attentive to everything, pool towels were only replaced once per week but i always take my own, so i didn't care much for that. Wi-fi, you have to pay, you can pay 15€ for 24 hours, so make sure if you do, when you don't use it, turn it off so you don't waste the time. There seems to be an issue with cats, seems like Rhodes is a dumping ground for stray cats, they are everywhere, but don't worry, they are all friendly and obedient, they never go in doors and don't jump up at you, so something to keep the kids entertained however i wouldn't touch them, just incase (fleas, mites you get my drift). All in all for my first time in Rhodes, i'd say it was awesome, the hotel does the bets with the economy being as it is and i for one would certainly return.More

Clean and fantastic location
This hotel has a great location as you are right on the beach with a walkable distance to Ixia and just a short taxi or bus to Rhodes Town. Even better only 20 minutes in a taxi from the airport. We were happy overall with the hotel and it was very clean. The snack bar made great pizzas and the food was generally nice with something for everyone. The entertainment was a bit lacking and the queues at the outside bar were too long most of the time, they really need a second barman. We found too that the bar mixers from the inside bar tasted awful and we couldn't drink them so were forced to queue at the pool bar Overall an enjoyable holiday More
