how can anyone have a bad word to say about the hilton Rhodes resort. i stayed there in the month of august 2005 and thought it was absolubtly excelent. the rooms were very upto standard, the service was excelent and the animation team was very impresive, especially the males of the team :). i enjoyed the whole holiday and i am planning on going back next summer. i seriously reccomend it to anyone, and not to listen to those who pull it down.

Loved the Hilton Rhodes Resort

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed for a week between 28/07/2005 and 04/08/2005, probably the busiest time of the year for the hotel and the island of Rhodes. We (wife, daughter and myself) enjoyed a great stay at the Hilton. Initially, we were given a family room in the garden with direct access to the swimming pool. However, the room furnishings were old and it was rather noisy at night (see hotel's bar by the pool) and the shrilling sound of thousands of cicadas on the garden trees...
The second day of our stay, the extremely helpful client relations department offered us a room on the 5th floor and there was a big difference; the room was recently renovated, great view to Aegean sea, and calm. Breakfast was fantastic at the Castellania restaurant. The Cafe de Paris restaurant was rather boring; only serves three main dishes (beaf/chicken/salmon) with the cafe de Paris sauce. The Pergola restaurant by the pool offers a better alternative with a lot more variety and creativity.
The pool was lovely. The beach was a bit less friendly; choppy waters and stones. But we rented a car and drove to some great beaches on the eastern part of the island.
The hotel staff (incl. the animation team) were fantastic!!! Thank you all.
I would definitely consider going back to the hotel and would highly recommend it, especially to families. Worth every cent we paid.

Idyllic

from A TripAdvisor Member
All I can say is we found the hotel and its amenities excellent. Stayed last week in June and first week July 2005, as Hilton members we were treated to the regular toiletry room supplies, bath robes, slippers and occassional pre dinner room aperitif! Superb meals and service, drinks rather pricey - as is drinking water from the pool bar but purchasing from the hotel shop @ 50 euros saves you at least 3 euros, you learn! Lots to do during the day appart from thurs (animation teams day off) but it wasn't over the top, however the the piano bar pool is the place for complete peace and quiet whilst catching the rays and reading your book! We would definitely go again, all staff and locals so friendly, and the evening meals delicious.
Kids club ok but personally child age would need to be 4+ to enjoy activities. Our children enjoyed water soccer, water volley ball, mask making, stone collecting and decorating (from beach - attached to hotel), painting etc. Evening entertainment great first week, but repeats weekly so advise planning ahead outwith hotel complex.

Great for families with children

My husband, 2 children and I stayed for 5 nights at the Hilton. The 'family room' which has 3 beds was perfect for us and the view was beautiful as well. We also thought that the half board rate was very reasonable. We would have the breakfast buffet and then get the credit (for the buffet dinner) and dine at the other restaurants either for lunch or dinner. We did not try the dinner buffet but ate at the Pergola most nights. The food there was excellent. Overall, the food was reasonable considering we just returned from a few days at the 5 star Grande Bretagne Hotel in Athens. That was expensive.

We enjoyed the dining/entertainment as well at the Pergola restaurant... The Beaters band (like the Beatles), disco 70's and the animation team show "Grease". The kids also enjoyed the large pool area, music, little shops near the pool, game room and the nightly entertainment.

I gave the hotel 4 stars since most websites claim this is a 5 star hotel as I was expecting. There aren't any robes in the rooms, hair conditioner or nightly turn down service. Room decorations are sparse and the hotel itself is very industrial looking. After a day there, you appreciate the gardens and what the hotel has to offer you...alot. The beach is also nice with comfortable lounge chairs and umbrellas free for guests. The 2nd pool looked very elegant and quiet...no kids there. The staff was always friendly too! For a day trip don't miss the Old Town, Lindos or Petaloudes (Butterfly Valley).

A good value

from A TripAdvisor Member
We spent the first week in May here. This was a fine hotel at a reasonable price. The room was large with a wonderful view; there was plenty of closet space and a roomy marble bathroom. The hotel is large, but well designed. With two large swimming pools, there was no crowding while we were there. The beach requires swimming shoes as it is stoney, but the water is the usual Greek marvel. Rent a car to get to beaches farther down on the eastern side for sandy, no surf swiming. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The breakast buffet was excellent. We'd definitely come back if visiting Rhodes.

The Hilton is OK

from A TripAdvisor Member
I spent 4 days at the Hilton Rhodes hotel while on vacation with my family in Oct of 2004. I am a very frequent traveller and often stay at Hilton Hotels.

This hotel is a mixed bag. It is clean, has a nice pool, a good breakfast, and a very helpful and friendly staff. The rooms are large with good size balconies. However, it is an older hotel that is showing its age and has had better days. It seemed to be on a"package holiday" circuit that was popular with elderly German and English holiday couples. It was not kid friendly. (I fail to understand people who put their recliners six inches from the pool then look upset if a few drops of water are splashed on them!)

The hotel has good access to the beach but the beaches on the North West side of the island (near the hotel) are not nice (relatively small mixed rock/sand beach, road between hotel and beach with tunnel beneath road to access beach).

This hotel is great if you wish to lay around the pool and get a tan. However, if you want to get to Rhodes (the city) you need to take a taxi. If you want to go to the beach or go snorkeling it is not a good place. Again, it is a very decent hotel but make sure you understand the downsides.

Not a 5* by any stretch but not bad.

Currently staying at the Hilton (actually in their internet "cafe" as I type this).

Arrival : We arrived at 4am for a two week stay. Having requested a sea-view we were immediately disappointed with our room - last room on the floor, sea obscured by trees and the side of a mountain ! Next morning moved a couple of rooms up the corridor to get a great view. However we were not the only ones to complain - as we were changing rooms we heard two other couples (who had been on the same flight) changing theirs aswell. In fact everytime I've been near reception there have been people complaining about the rooms. Rooms with a "mountain view" literally face into a mountain with no view whatsoever. Make sure you ask for an odd numbered room and low e.g. 801 to ensure you face the sea and are not stuck at the end of the hotel.

Room : Not a 5 star room. Needs updating (stains on carpet and curtains). Minibar with wildly expensive drinks (comparative to any other point of purchase outside the hotel). Good sized bed, small balcony, average furniture, average bathroom (leaks and some rusting). Good maid service, fresh bathtowels each day. In terms of decor and furnishings I would rate it as a good 3* not a 4* and certainly not a 5* (and I've stayed in a good few). Good TV with wide range of channels (BBC Prime, RTE, Rai Uno etc).

Halfboard food : Breakfast : good range for different tastes. Free OJ and champagne (if you're an early morning drinker). Dinner : good to start and then lack of variety tires quickly. Strange mix some evenings - for instance crispy wontons served but no other similar foods. Expensive drinks.
Waiters polite but too eager to take your plate aware even if you haven't finished or your partner hasnt ! A la carte restaurants meant to be very good (award winning).

Drinks : generally throughout the hotel drinks were disgracefully expensive with a markup between 6 and 10 times supermarket prices. To be expected I suppose but I dont expect to be paying UK hotel prices in Greece.

Animation : average. Sports few a far between (some average pool games) and animation team had no real interest in motivating or even keeping the scores accurately ! Evening entertainment abysmal but who needs that anyway ?! Get out and explore !

Facilities : not happy to discover charges for tennis and squash courses. Reasonable gym and a few (expensive - again) onsite shops.

Overall : good hotel if you get a good room (and keep demanding if you don't), reasonable food, good location for Rhodes Town, expensive drinks, poor animation. More a good 4* than a 5* by UK standards. Overall mark : 13/20.

Rhodes Hilton Resort, Ixia

from A TripAdvisor Member
We are just back from Rhodes on 18 August 2004. We had a family room at the Hilton for 7 nights, an absolutely lovely hotel. The children really loved it and used the internet cafe quite a bit. The pools and terrace areas are marvellous. We had a room with a seaview, plenty of space and great bathroom. Staff really friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were fantiastic, plenty of variety and plenty of it. The only reservation I would have is with regard to half board and the evening meal, food was not great - a lot of mushy stuff, for a 5 star hotel I did expect better quality. But all in all a lovely hotel and would definitely go back again. Rhodes - just fell in love with it.

Great Hotel - Great Holiday

Just arrived back from the hilton hotel, we stayed from 28/7/04- 11/08/04 what a fantastic hotel, we had a room with a sea view from which we could see turkey, i would recommend paying a supplement for a sea view or you may be facing bushes or a brick wall. all the saff in every department were all very friendly and helpful. the food was excellent lots of variey to suit all. the whole of the hotel was airy, clean and well maintained. there was no getting up at the crack of dawn to get sunbeds as there was plenty around the pool and the beach (all free). i would definitely return again and recommend it to all age groups.

Fantastic what more can I say

from A TripAdvisor Member
We were booked under the name Robinson, my maiden name. we were there for our honeymoon, on arriviing at the hotel at 4am we were greeted by cheery staff, we went to our room, which I must say was fantastic. Within 5 mins there was a knock at the door and there stood a porter with a bottle of champagne for us courtesy of the management, what a fantastic touch and a great start to our honeymoon. During our stay all of the staff without exceptioon were fantastic. We loved it so much there that we are returning on 11th August 2004. I would reccommend this hotel tooo anyone wanting a stress free relaxing holiday.

Top Local Tips for Rhodes

Handy supermarkets Buy water and drinks from the supermarkets just next to the hotel and keep them in your fridge. Order water and ice once from room service and get the ice bucket topped up from the bar!

Taxis Reception order taxis and they are never more than a few minutes, only Euro 6 into rhodes town

Rhodes Town Casino/Gambling Don't expect to gamble and just walk into the island's main casino in Rhodes town. My husband and I decided to go there one night and were rejected practically as soon as we entered. You cannot wear shorts or sandals at the casino, must show passports and other paperwork, and I believe pay a fee, kind of hefty from what I remember, just to go inside!!
