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.

The hotel is spotless rooms cleaned every day all public areas very clean Food not to bad usual all inclusive fair breakfast the best meal of the day Location righr on the beach but is set on a very busy road which is a nightmare to cross not much outside of hotel but only 10 mins on bus or 10 euros in a taxi to rhodes town Sunbeds get up early but this is normal at any hotel tbh Entertainment at night is poor the highlight being an appalling father and son dutch singing duo daytime entertainment is ok though Rooms very basic but outdated but again ok ask for a bungalow with a sea view Trips do the boat to lindos 27 euro all day trip All in all great hotel great staff veryay clean and good value although outside of hotel is expensive for food and drink all day snacks need upgrading and better night time entertainment other than that spot on lovely holiday More

We spent a 2 week holidays in the middile of July in this hotel We had a very nice holidays although we wouldn't rate the hotel 4*. For our opinion it is 3*. But we never make a problem of it, we try to adjust and have a good time. Here are our observations. Hotel is smaller that we thought but this is good. This is family hotel, so if you are a young couple it is not appropriate. Also there were a lot of older people. Interesting. At our time there were mostly Scandinavians although people from very different countries were also there. Location directly on the beach is excellent. As hotel is also at the main road with a lot of traffic and there is very noisy in rooms near the road. The reception, dinning room and ground halls are nice big and obviuosly newer than rooms. Rooms are very, very basic and outdated. Definatelly need a big renovation. But just for sleeping it was OK. Beds were comfortable. Balcony is big and in the main building there is mostly just side view on the sea. Nothing much to do arround the hotel. 1-2 shops, bars and restaurants. A lot of shops closed or abandoned. The staff is very nice, polite and proffesional. Trying to help every time. When we complaint that our room was not cleaned for 2 times in 5 days (as we were in the room in the afternoon for a couple of hours the made just look in the room, say nothing and disapear and didn't come back later), they immediately sent a made to clean the room. We went for a dinner at 21 p.m. and when we came back there was a bottle of wine, juices and fruit waiting for us. And the room very nice made up. This was a lovely gesture and made our day brighter. Thank you again. Food was just excellent for all inclusive. Various, good and fresh. Plenty enough whenever you came. They have the best greek youghourt I have ever eaten in Greece. Mnjami. Also they had nationl cuisines from other countries but not necessary for us. The only thing that we didn't like were cats . They came also inside the restaurant and the staff didn't manage to remove them (they didnt't try very much). The pool is small but OK. Not enough space arround it and very crowded with sunbeds. The surroundings was cleaned every evening but we didn't see that the pool itself was cleaned. Maybe it was later in the evening. The beach is OK with peabbles so sea shoes are needed. It is a nice beach, the sea was warm and great for swimming although it was windy every day. But not much. We didn't need to pay for sunbeds. But heere is another complaint. There are not enough sunbeds for all guests. It was very, very crowded in July. Please think of broadening the beach area as it is enough space. Sunbeds were mostly OK as we cannot say that for pillows on them. They were all torn. Also umbrellas were mostly torn and with holes on the top. Urgently need reparing or get new ones. The bar on the beach is great. Always enough snacks and drinks. Staff very nice. They cleaned tables quickly enough. The most shocking for us was that people left so lot of trash on the beach that the staff couldn't cleaned it properly. Plastic glasses, spoons, straws, food... You name it. In the evening it was like a dump. Staff regularly picked up glasses but plastic is cleaned in the evening. In the morning it was still a lot of it. We have never seen so much trash after people leaving the beach. We really don't know what king of people were this. Also they have a rule not to reserve sunbeds before 8.15 a.m. Towels are moved if no one is there. Nothing wrong with this if they would stick to it strictly. We were early on the beach and we observed a little. TThe first week we didn't saw anyone to remove towels, just the second week. Time was not the same every dayand not all towels without the owner were moved. Of course a lot of misunderstandings and quarels between guest appeared. So we think that this rule was ridicules. It just caused that people reserve sunbeds and put their towels on them earlier and left someone to guard them (at 6 a.m. there were already towels by the pul). Of course the reason is also the lack of sunbeds. And what is the difference if some group of people reserve 10 sunbeds (this was really happenning) and left 1 of them to watch them and their towels were not removed as 1 man was there watching 10 sunbeds and on the other side we saw one couple who was early and went swimming but when they come back their towels were removed as they were not ther sitiing on them. Totally unfair and not necessary at all. Animation was good , especially for young children. A little less for teenagers. But as we are not so much animation people it seemed to be OK. But overall the resort is great, worth the price we paid. We had a beautiful holidays and we recomend it for families.More

we arrived at 9pm, were told the restaurant closed at 9.30pm, she rang through to tell them we were coming, not much left. We couldn't have our room as there was no water supply in the main building, so were given a very tired and shabby room for the night. next day we got the room we booked, quite sparse but nice view of pool and sea, we don't spend a lot of time there so okay. The food was nice, usually plenty of choice, no complaints there. However you only get one towel for all week, so take one with you, as they are so small they only cover half your sunbed (if you can get one) It was hard to find a sunbed that wasn't broken, but we were there in high season! Generally this hotel is tired and could do with a face lift, there was an obvious shortage of staff, and they were hard working and mostly jolly. If you try to reserve a sunbed before 8.15am and leave your towel on it and go to breakfast, you may find your towel has been removed by hotel staff, there are signs in the lift to warn you not to reserve sunbeds and leave them unoccupied, be warned!! Just remember, You get what you pay for, if you don't pay much, don't expect 5* and Avra Beach is average.More
Where do I start, lack of staff around the pool area, my nephew had a fall by the pool & not a member of staff to be seen, then today I slipped on the wet surface & cracked my head, NOT a member of staff in site yet again, I have been to most of the islands & this is the first time I've not seen a life guard around the pool, theres kids jumping off the bridge into the pool, A BROKEN NECK WAITING TO HAPPEN , Drinks are all warm so if your after a cold drink to cool off forget itMore
We visited avra 2 years ago now and it was the best family holiday we have ever had ! The first room we were given had noisy air con so we asked to move straight away and they put us in another room that was nice but they said it was only for that night ! The next day after at about 11am we were put in to our main room and it was worth the wait ! We were on the bottom floor with our varanda facing the sea and the pool just to out right ! Rooms were clean and comfortable , good in the restaurant was nice but next time I'd go half board and venture out for meals the bar was fantastic very good bar men and very funny , the entertainment team were brilliant and both our kids then aged (5 and 9 ) loved it the beach was shingles but we knew that the sea was rough a few times as it gets the wind in ixia but when calm it was beautiful I would and have recommended avra beach it's lovely and Rhodes is such a lovely place More
