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.

We visited Avra Beach in mid October of 2014, the pool and hotel entrance are spotless and beautiful! We arrived at the hotel at 11:30pm and was taken straight to the bar while they checked us in to our rooms, by the end of the week the bar staff knew us and had drinks ready as soon as they spotted us walking over! Was lovely to sit by the mini bar drinking cocktails and watching the sunset and the waves until late, only complaint I do have is the food! As an all inclusive I wasn't expecting much, but the majority of the food was foul! We basically lived off bread, cake and pasta for the week! And by the end I was desperate for a proper meal! We did however venture in to Old Town Rhodes where we had a lovely meal at Castillo House (twice!) the waiters are so friendly and always give away complimentary cocktails, shots etc :) The entertainment staff were entertaining and fun although by October the hotel was not fully packed so audience participation was sometimes scarce and awkward! We loved Gustav, he was always up for a chat everyday and checked in on us to make sure we were okay! As for the room we were told it was â¬70 to turn on the air con!! But after a couple days we'd gotten used to the heat, room was very basic and had an odd smell to it, no window in the bathroom so it was often sickly hot and humid in there but we only used it to sleep in so we werent particularly fussed. We had room 100 right at the front of the hotel on the first floor and there was a large generator just outside the hotel with revved up every 30 seconds or so throughout the night, again we got used to it after a few days but it was very annoying! Apart from the odd thing that could've been improved it was our first holiday in 6 years and we were just happy to have some time in the sunshine to relax. The weather was so much better than we expected, only one day we had a few light showers but nothing that ruined our day. There was also one night we sat on the beach watching a thunder and lightning storm you could see on another island in the distance, it was beautiful. All in all i would return to Rhodes but not back to the same resort! We want to travel so we would prefer to visit lots of places rather than the same place each year! But as a couples holiday or a family holiday i would say this is great if you're looking for something simple and laid back, just be prepared to eat out some nights!More

This hotel is wonderful! Lovely staff and lovely place to relax and have fun! The animation team is amazing and really funny and crazy people. I'm never gonna forget my time at Avra Beach Resort and i will definitly go back.More
I wasn't expecting much from this as it was quite cheap and last minute but what a pleasant surprise!! The staff were all very pleasant, entertainment nearly every night, which we weren't expecting for the last week of the season! We had 2 rooms - one for my hubby and me, another for our 2 teenagers, both 4 bed!! Good selection of food and drink - great selection of cocktails on the AI!! Only downside was that we had no welcome meeting so we weren't aware of the no towels on sunbeds rule - we weren't the only ones as a Dutch lady shouted at me for taking her sunbeds! I didn't know what she was going on about! We were literally the last people in the hotel and the staff went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay right down to the last minute.More

We were a family of 8 spending week together for half term. We arrived to find we had been allocated family rooms , unfortunately these were at the back of the hotel and next to the road, the rooms smelt damp and were cold. We stayed the first night in there then asked to move, we were given triple rooms in the main hotel. Much better and had sea views. The entertainment team made the holiday very enjoyable, they were so hard working. My son and I enjoyed the karaoke night and cocktails very much!! The food was good, plenty of choice and always something for everyone . The antics of the ice cream freezer kept us amused, kids licking the scoop , dropping it and putting it back in! Maybe one to avoid! We took taxis to rhodes town a couple of days, it had an end of season feel there, quite a few places closed up and no boat trips from the harbour. Great road train trip still running though. Sun shone everyday but went cool about 3.30 each day, the sea was warmer to swim in than the pool. The hotel closed for the season on our last day but it still provided the same range of food and drinks all day for us and we kept our rooms free of charge until we left at 6pm. We would visit again and recommend the hotel.More
