Rhodes Island the guide for a stylish vacation
I always thought Rhodes was full of tourists, full of tourist traps – I thought it , but I was wrong … One Saturday afternoon a friend and I decided spontaneously
to fly to Greece.
There are always cheap tickets to Rhodes and we Decided to go for it and enjoy the tourist “traps”.
The hotel – Caesars Gardens Hotel & Spa
Beeing kids free, we decided to choose an adult only hotel (a winning experience if you want a quiet vacation – I will also mention hotels that are suitable for children in Rhodes)
Location: Near Lindos town, in the southern part of Rhodes, about 50 minutes drive from the airport
Recommended: Rent a car, The hotel is not by the sea and it takes about 3 minutes to reach the nearest beach (you can go to the beachfrom the hotel but it’s downhill and it is not easy to return)
We chose the hotel without recommendations and we found it was just perfect! The structure of the hotel is not large, It is a renovated small hotel, with some upgraded rooms with private pools. The public area of the hotel is styled with lots of designed and beautiful areas, we would love to live there. The pool is stunning in shades of turquoise green and makes you want to jump in it every time you pass by. The extra part of the hotel has a huge jacuzzi (like a small pool) with other luxurious tanning beds. There is a gourmet restaurant called Tárate Restaurant which also serves a delicious breakfast.
Rooms: Our room was in the old building of the hotel, the room was renovated and equipped with lovely furniture and a large comfortable bed. You can feel the hotel was thinking about the small details with the luxurious coffee machine (free) pool bag, chocolates on the pillows at night and more. The only thing that was not renovated in this room was the bathroom, it didn’t bother us, but I asked them and in the coming year they will be renovated. * I went to visit one of the new rooms that looked like a B & B and everything was just right.

What to do in Rhodes
Not moving from our perfect hotel?😂 there’s a lot to do in Rhodes and when I say a lot I mean to do things even without tons of people walking around the island.
Rhodes has 2 cities worth visiting: Rhodes Old Town, and White Lindos.
We were in the Lindos area but decided to go to Rhodes anyway and it was a good decision.
Rhodes Old Town
Rhodes was consistently inhabited by the Middle Ages, it has many small streets, some without names. You can fins the synagogue of a Jewish Museum, the Palace of the Order, the Archaeological Museum and more … We arrived in the evening and mostly walked around the charming streets of the Old City.
:Recommended Restaurants in Old Town
Marco polo cafe – Very famous, outdoor seating.
we were recommend booking a place Alexis 4 Seasons Seafood Restaurant Rhodes – A very large and nice fish restaurant.
Alter Ego Summer – Cool bar with modern food
What to do in Rhodes
The magical city of Lindos
We discovered Lindos at sunset when we decided to go to dinner, we just arrived that day and saw only the Acropolis but didn’t really notice Lindos’s beauty, We left the vehicle in one of the parking lots on the main road and the magical Lindos was there. You can climb the Lindos Acropolis and preferably not on a donkey! Our hotel was near and we enjoyed strolling around Lindos in the evening and eating at the lovely restaurants.
Recommended Restaurants in Lindos:
Melenos S.A -Very upscale with stunning views of the Acropolis, we recommend booking a place.
Broccolino Restaurant –A traditional Italian restaurant with a twist. Great food, we recommend booking a place.
Cesar Meze Bar – A subsidiary of our hotel, a cool bar with good food
Olive street restaurant – Nice restaurant in the middle of the city
: Recommended Beaches in Rhodes
When you travel to Rhodes it is usually in the summer, to relax on the beaches. Here are some beaches with restaurants that will make you leave the hotel and go to the sea.
Saint Paul Bay
A magical bay with clear water right under Lindos Acropolis. The bay has 2 beaches.
The southernmost beach with the wonderful Tambakio Restaurant (it is advisable to book beds during peak times or arrive early) with particularly tasty food.
Sun beds with parasol cost 20 euros per coupleץ
The north shore is smaller with less beds, cost 10 per couple + parasol. The beach there is smaller but worth every moment. Smaller restaurant a beach buffet, but looks more authentic.
:Continue Beaches in Rhodes
About 30 minutes south of Lindos you can find 2 lovely beaches worth driving to:

About 10 minutes from Rhodes Old Town we entered heaven…
Santa Marina Beach
Restaurant / Bar / Beach … When the lady at the hotel told us to stop there I checked the pictures on the internet but didn’t catch the vibe … Designed umbrellas we really wanted to take home, lovely design and crazy cocktails. Everything needed to get into a good atmosphere with some music and a magical bay. Highly recommended getting closer to Rhodes city, the cost per parasol + 2 Euro 15 beds I was told there was another cool beach called Ronda Beach Bar Located right next to the Old City it is worth checking out dinner there.
Some more tips (because then why not? 😀)
I’m sure there are many more beautiful places in Rhodes. One bay we missed and you should check out is Anthony Quinn Bay
