Just back from two weeks at the Ilyssion. Rooms were basic but were cleaned every day and sheets/towels changed every 2 or 3 days. The family who run this hotels are very helpful and were always very chatty and pleasant to us. Hotel is right on the sea front with steps into the sea or there is a small beach just a couple of minutes to the right of the hotel - 7 euros for two sunbeds on this beach but you also got a bottle of water which was good!

Food - well we were half board and only ate at the hotel in the evening twice - to be honest we weren't planning on eating there in the evenings as we like to go out we just got a really good deal on booking. But the times we did eat in the hotel the food was good with a good choice. Bar reasonably priced as was the snack bar beside the pools.

Loved sitting on the outside terrace watching the sun go down and listening to the waves.

The one downside is the hotel is about a 20 minute walk into Pekfos - we didn't mind the walk it is just a busy road with taxis and tour coaches wizzing past and no pavement!

On arrival to the hotel we were greeted by a lady at reception.
There was no smiles and happy hellos just a miserable face and what's your name and where's your hotel receipt.
She proceeded to tell us that we had to pay for air con ( which was not very good air con - took forever to get a little cool)
She also said there was a wifi charge (which one handset only could be used at one time)
There was also a deposit for a safe ( which was not in the room it wAs in a room near reception and very tiny).
There was also a deposit for a hair dryer !
And as I was stood at reception there wAs a long list of other things which needed payment or deposit to use!!
The customer service is SHOCKING. At one point our towels hadn't been changed for about 4 days - we asked for new ones and were told NO and that We would have to wait until tomorrow!
The first morning we went downstairs to breakfast and it was APPAULING!!
It was all laid out messy there was hardly anything there and it was disgusting.
We thought we would give it another chance and go down for dinner.
This time again it was awful. There was a huge queue we stood in to finally get to the food which didn't have any labels so we didn't know what it wAs and was laid out very messy.
There was a choice of one cake ( laid out a mess and only a small amount)
There was some melon which was soggy and looked like it had been there for hours !
We therefore had to eat out for breakfast and dinner every day.
On leaving there was no goodbye, hope you enjoyed your stay or have a safe flight. Not even a smile just NOTHING.
NEVER AGAIN would we return here unless there were BIG BIG changes !!

We have just returned from a week here and had fantastic weather. The hotel has amazing views and is right by the sea so you lay by the pool and also pop to the sea for a swim is that close. The rooms are quite basic but who spends there holiday in the room has a bed and bathroom what more do you need. The food we found was fine and I went with a very fussy eater but we all found something to eat. Perkos town is about a 10-15 minutes walk away with lots of restaurants and bars for everyone. The owners of the hotel are all such lovely people and we made really good friends with Chris and his fiancée Mary they are the cutest couple ever. The mother ,father and daughter Kiera ( sorry if i spelt it wrong) were all so welcoming and nothing is ever a problem. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Will most definitely be returning when I go back to Rhodes.

Excellent location....friendly staff...could be a wonderful hotel but on the evidence of the room we stayed in 108 needs badly updating tired and old looking and bathroom was grubby...food was appalling especially the breakfast...like other guests at this hotel ate out on many occasions....

Like many before us, we are also very disappointed with the hotel. Bad food or better catastrophic food (we had half board, better it would be only a bed and breakfast, all inclusive? do not even think about it). Dirty plates and cups. If you go on a trip, you left without a meal (we ate well outside). Rooms are modest, but without any aids. You get Air condition for an extra cost, also wi fi (which is very poor fishing!).
The hotel area is good. Beach is nice.
Infront of the hotel is a bus station with good connections to other places.
summa summarum = never again!
