My Stay At The Rodos Village Beach Mitsis Hotel In Kiotari, Greece
September 4, 2012 4:42 PM

   

This Sunday I arrived back home here in Sweden from a wonderful, sunny and very relaxing week on the beautiful island of Rhodes in Greece. I truly had a lovely trip and finally, for the first time this summer, I got to enjoy real warm temperatures (a minimum of +30 degrees celsius every day) as well as lots of splashing around in a stunning crystal clear ocean. Needless to say, it was an amazing week!

Now I went on this trip with a friend and we lived in the southern part of the island of Rhodes in a little Greek village called Kiotari, about one hour by bus from the airport. The hotel we lived at was an all inclusive hotel about 300 meters from the beach, which was where we mostly spent our days. However, we did go on one excursion to the gorgeous Rhodes city center and the island's amazing ancient Old Town area. But despite the fact that the week was mostly about chilling out by the beach, I still managed to take tons of photos (of course, hehe). Therefore I will do three posts about my travel and experiences in Rhodes.

In this first post I will include photos from my trip from Vaxjo (Växjö) airport here in Sweden to Rhodes in Greece. I will also post photos from the hotel I stayed at, the Rodos Village Beach Mitsis Hotel in Kiotari. The other two posts will include photos from the lovely beach in Kiotari as well as my excursion to Rhodes city center.

So here we go, post number one - My Stay At The Rodos Village Beach Mitsis Hotel In Kiotari.

Main courses.

More mains. Now I would give the mains here about 3/5 if I were to rate them, mainly because I found that the cuts of meat and fish here had a lot of fat and bones on them.

Desserts.

The upper level pool by the Italian a la carte restaurant, which you could eat at once during your stay.

Rodos Village Beach Mitsis Hotel Italian Restaurant
Which we did. I had carpaccio as an appetizer - delicious! It was also another first time tasting for me. :-)

Mushroom risotto for main, it was quite good. Though I would have liked more mushrooms and I thought the rice was a bit odd for a risotto.


Dessert, insanely delicious! It said on the menu that it was a chocolate soufflé, but I think it was more like a fondant. On the other hand, I have never had a soufflé - so what do I know? Lol! But it was tasty. So all in all the Italian restaurant definitely deserve 4/5 points in my book.

On our way back down the hill from the Italian restaurant in beautiful moonlight.

And to finish off post number one, an early sunrise view from our balcony. :p

So I would say that I enjoyed my stay at the Rodos Village Beach Mitsis Hotel, though the hotel is definitely in need of some refurbishment. However, the service was great, the food quite alright, drinks were yummy and plenty to choose from. Also the location was lovely, but be prepared to climb a lot of stairs. Hehe. Other than that, fabulous.

Now I am off to work on my next Rhodes post, all about the beautiful beach in Kiotari. Already miss it!
