The difference between a good trip to Rhodes and a great one.

My advice is: eat lightly in the evening so that you are prepared for the feasts that come out of the kitchen! We were treated to some of the best breakfasts we've ever eaten.

All in all, after a 3 night stay over April, I'd say we found a seriously wonderful gem of a hotel!

Nikos and Angela could not be more welcoming! They have a very special property in the old town of Rhodes, which is within short walking distance of all the main attractions and fabulous restaurants. Our first morning, we had freshly squeezed orange and grapefruit juice, marmalades made from the garden's own trees, rice pudding inspired by Angela's grandmother's recipe and a divine feta tart, which was then followed by yoghurt, nuts and fruit and then scrambled eggs with Greek spices - all of which was accompanied by fresh breads and a constant supply of coffee. During the day, you can walk around the old and new towns of Rhodes or head south to places like Lindos for some sightseeing paired with an afternoon of sun-soaking (has a nice beach). Note that on arrival you'll be given a seriously in-depth tablet with everything you could possibly want or need to know about what to do, where to eat, what not to miss etc, which is tailored daily to you by Nikos - so I'd recommend arriving without much of a plan and decide when you get there. Once you've explored, return to Kokkini Porta Rossa to relax in the very zen-like courtyard, where you might be lucky enough to hear Angela's talented son playing on the grand piano in the entrance. Here you can toast your adventures with a glass of complimentary wine before wondering back into the picturesque streets for dinner - Nikos also has a long list of restaurant recommendations so have no fear if you can't make up your mind on where to go.
