Hotels in Rhodes
Accommodation in Rhodes is extremely varied, like most of the Greek islands you can either choose a large luxurious resort, a smaller family run hotel or cheaper self-catering apartments and villas. Depending on what you want your Rhodes holiday to be, you’ll be able to find something for everybody, from party strips to ancient architecture all surrounded by gorgeous views, sandy beaches and the glistening Mediterranean Sea.
Where to Stay
Rhodes is a world-famous party island, mostly due to the popularity of the resort of Faliraki, a big hit with stag and hen parties as well as big groups of friends who love bar hopping and dancing till dawn. Bar Street and Club Street are lined with reps enticing you to choose their venue and there are loads to choose from. Take shots in one of the many themed and local bars before partying until dawn to the sound of the latest EDM DJs, chart music and mellow RnB then you can nurse your sore head in the morning with a cold beverage and refreshing dip in the sea at the beach..
If you choose to enjoy some culture on your Rhodes holiday travel to the town of Lindos. It’s renowned for its scenic clifftop acropolis that features imposing gates dating back to the 4th century and reliefs from around 280 B.C. You can also see the Temple of Athena Lindia and the 14th-century Castle of the Knights of St. John. Greece is famous for its ancient relics and spectacular architecture which you can search for if you choose to rent a car for a drive around the island of Rhodes.
If you want your holiday to Rhodes to be a relaxing one then Kolymbia is tailor made for you. About 25 km from Rhodes Town on the northeast coast, the resort is a more low-key and chilled out version of Faliraki. The picturesque setting between both mountains and the sea, this family friendly resort offers up great water sports and a safe and clear beach, great shopping and nightlife, as well as excursions to neighbouring islands and villages. The main street is lined with Eucalyptus and the 2 km strip hosts many bars, shops and fabulous restaurants offering both Greek and international cuisine.
What to Do
You can choose to book a holiday to Rhodes for one of their annual festivals which attract revellers from around the world every year, such as the Medieval Rhodes Festival which is usually held in late May or early June and has got bigger and better over the years. Held in the perfectly preserved medieval town in the city of Rhodes itself, it’s a mix of performers in historical costumes, jesters, jugglers and other re-enactments as well as traditional food including various meats and sweet goods. Rhodes Rock takes place in June in Lindos and showcases some of the biggest tribute and cover bands taking on rock legends such as Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones among others and is held in the stunning location of the ancient amphitheatre over three nights. World Tourism Day started in the 1980s and is a cultural celebration of all the island has to offer. It takes place in September in villages and towns across the island of Rhodes and promotes the best food, drink and music of the Greek island.
What to Eat
There is plenty to indulge in while on holiday in Rhodes, with various wonderful restaurants offering fresh seafood as well as delicious Greek food that’s even better because it’s made using locally sourced produce such as beautifully sun ripened olives and juicy tomatoes. You cannot go on vacation to Greece and not have a Greek salad or taramasalata. Explore the island in search for the best tzatziki and indulge in some fresh mezze. For the traditionalists, many resorts feature home comforts such as burgers, pizza and noodles and if you opt for an all-inclusive trip you’ll most likely experience buffet style foods and continental breakfasts.
