Paleos apartments is a family-friendly apartment hotel on the north coast of the Greek island of Rhodes. It's a short stroll from Ialysos Beach, which has a sand-and-shingle shoreline, alongside plenty of bars, cafÈs and restaurants. From the hotel you're also a short walk from the centre of the coastal resort town of Ialysos, which has views across the pine-covered hills out to the Aegean Sea. Buildings at Paleos apartments are set in gardens dotted with palm trees, and are centred around the outdoor swimming pool and smaller kids' pool with shaded sun protection for children. The hotel is typically Greek in style with whitewashed walls. Rooms have balconies overlooking the pool and out towards the coast. You'll find floor-to-ceiling windows in the lobby, so you can enjoy the views, alongside Wi-Fi and plenty of places for you to sit and relax in the sun or the shade. You can dine al fresco or indoors at the hotel's buffet restaurant, where you can enjoy a range of local and international food. There's also a main bar and a pool bar for drinks and snacks during the day. For entertainment, staff put on a weekly karaoke night. If you want to go exploring instead, it's a short drive to Ixia and Rhodes Town, where you'll find shops, markets and street stalls, along with restaurants, bars and clubs. You can also go on day trips to resorts across the island, including Faliraki, Lindos and Pefkos, plus St Pauls Bay, which is popular for snorkelling.
Paleos is 1km from the centre of Ialysos, where you'll find traditional Greek tavernas, waterfront restaurants and souvenir shops.

Further afield, you can get the boat to the Turkish resort of Marmaris, which has an Ottoman era castle, boat-lined marina and historic Old Town.

We stayed here for a week and it's was lovely, the owners couldn't do enough for us. Our 4 year old boys loved the staff who made pancakes for them specially everyday and were so helpful and friendly. My little boy left his Teddy and they even sent it back to us which made his day. The rooms were lovely. Great play area and pool area highly recommend
This was a last minute booking for a family group of 13. From the minute we arrived the staff couldnt do enough and this continued throughout our stay. It was only a ten minute walk to the centre of Ialysos so ideally placed. I would highly recommend.
I can't say anything bad about this hotel. The rooms are very spacious and were cleaned often, the pool area is lovely and there are 2 bars, a snack bar and restaurant. The best thing about the hotel? Giannis and Maria! This brother and sister team are friendly and funny. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left they genuinely couldn't do enough for us and we really felt like friends not guests. Along with the 2 cooks in the pool bar and restaurant they cooked food to order that wasn't even on the menu. Giannis ordered drinks that weren't in stock. They helped other quests with car hire and currency exchange. They arranged taxis and recommended places to visit. They dealt with every query or issue (not that there was anything major for us) quickly and efficiently. I must also give a special mention to taxi driver Giannis who not only took us places in his taxi but also kept us entertained with his friendly banter and humour when he visited the hotel bar after his evening shifts. I would not hesitate to go back to this hotel. Thank you team Paleos, you helped make our holiday great. I hope you enjoy your winter break!
