It was a luxe hotel, luxe room, seaview and pool wonderfull, everything very much OK!
breakfast was very good and various, but every morning we had to beg for coffee!!why not a coffeemachine (douwe egberts?) or a thermoscan????it was 'the quest for coffee' every morning!
It was beautiful and a great location for us.
Absolutely stunning hotel, we had a suite with a private pool for a perfect honeymoon. Fantastic and plentiful breakfast in the suite-residents-only restaurant which offers beautiful views of the ocean. Free arrival drinks/cocktails/evening dinner as honeymooners which was very welcome although they forgot the 'flower decoration on arrival'. Excellent air con, huge room with jacuzzi in bathroom. Peaceful & relaxing. 10 minute bus ride (€2.10) or taxi (€10-14) to stunning Rhodes Town. We went bed and breakfast but the sumptuous 5 course dinner menu is only €15 a head; highly reccomended. The hotel also has a virtually private section of beach which is very pleasant whilst the rest of Ixia's beach backs directly onto a busy road.
The staff, although polite, were not the quickest. Service at the pool bar/restaurant took ages; up to 15-20 minutes to get drinks, even longer for food. It also took quite some time to get service at the reception too. We also got fed up with noisy cleaners in the morning! There is very little other than a couple of supermarkets and downmarket restaurants/bars in walking distance, even these are situated right on a very busy, noisy road. If you like to venture out of your hotel, get a taxi/bus to Rhodes Town which is absolutely stunning. Ixia itself has suffered very badly with the economic crisis and it's not great. The hotel has a very well stocked bar, but the cocktails are unfortunately badly made and very expensive; €9-10 each.
We stayed for 5 nights in a grand suite with private pool and the room was excellent! spacious,lavish and well designed.The hotels beach was very nice.
Definitely not a"couple orieneted hotel".We have never seen so many kids wandering around every single corner of the hotel. Both restaurants lacked in service and quality! Even to find a fork or a cup for coffee you had to wait for 15 minutes! The dresscode in "Alazonia" restaurant was ridicullus after all
Pleasant staff, beautiful view, on the beach, beautiful and spacious common rooms.
The location is beautiful, right on the seaside. The facilities offered by the hotel and the friedly personel make sure that the guests have a most relaxing holiday. I would also like to stress the high quality of the buffet breakfast and dinner.
Very Clean .. Great Breakfast
Poor Security ... you can access the hotel without passing through reception. You can have breakfast without being a guest in the hotel - you are not asked for your name and room number to confirm you are actually a guest. It is possible to freely use the pool area and sunbeds without being a guest at the hotel ( I witnessed this every day ). Very annoying after paying a lot to stay there
The hotel was gorgeous and the pools and reception were breathtaking. The buffet breakfast and dinner were good also.
The staff around the pool areas were very few and we had to go in person to order. The hotel made a mistake with our booking and said that Bookings.com did not provide them with the reservation receipt, we hence had to wait a while before given a room.
The pool was very nice.
The staff were a little rude when we pointed out that the air con was not working. We were told that it was working although the boss told off her staff in Greekthat clients should not be told that there is any issue with the a/c. Unfortunately for her I speak Greek and I pointed out to her in Greek that honesty would have been a better option. She didnt bother apologising.
The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. The price was very good considering how nice the room was.
