The hotel itself is wonderful and the views from our room were stunning. We had a few issues with our door but was dealt with efficiently. The hotel is right on the beach. The beach is very stoney, but still lovely to walk across.
Unfortunately we had to wake up really early to get a sunbed for the day.
The animation team are beyond amazing, they made us feel at ease, involved us in conversation and activities.
The food is good but can get very repetitive, this is to be expected from all inclusive, so didn't bother us too much.
There is a shop on site, which we were not informed about until we asked where the local shop was.
Overall, we had a great stay in a great hotel.

Last year we stayed at the hotel in one of the bungalows and enjoyed it so much we went back this year with the kids, again in bungalows. With the breakfast and evening meals included this worked out very well indeed with my two hungry offspring able to eat their fill. It is difficult to fault the food with reasonable choice and as much as you could manage. A special word also about the staff who are very helpful, cheerful and hard working. The pool is large enough to cater for all and the beach bar is ideally situated and reasonably priced. As a windsurfer the hotel could not be better placed for access to the 2 rental centres. We will be going back next year!

We chose Vivian Studios for the reviews and for the location, we were not disappointed. The studios are well located not far from Rhodes Town but far enough that you feel part of the local community which was wonderful. The room was light, clean and had a little sunny balcony perfect to sit out on and watch the sun come up and the people go about their daily lives. I especially loved the songs coming from the monks on Filerimos on the Sunday morning. Vivian and Irene were welcoming and attentive. I loved sitting with an expresso in the shade of a lilac tree in the small courtyard and hearing all about Rodos from Irene. Self catering was easy as the Super Market and Bakery is just across the street and unbelievably cheap. Cooking was a bit of a challenge as there is only a two ring hob but we still managed eggs and bacon on most mornings and you can eat out at the local Tavernas each evening which was wonderful. We will definitely be returning to Rhodes and to Vivian studios hopefully very soon. I can highly recommend.
Almost merging with neighboring Ixia, Ialysus lies on the north coast, 6 km from the airport, and 8 km from Rhodes Town. The narrow, pebbled Ialyssos Beach affords views of Turkey across the water. The town takes its name from Ancient Ialysus, 5 km inland and home to a 4th-century BC temple and a peaceful monastery, well worth a visit.
