Princess Andriana Resort & Spa is a luxury All Inclusive hotel on the south east coast of the Greek island of Rhodes. The hotel is a short stroll from Kiotari Beach, a 4km stretch of sand and shingle. If you'd like to sip a cocktail while you enjoy the view, the beach bar is steps away from the sand. There are several other places to eat and drink at the hotel, including a main restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, an a la carte restaurant and five bars, including a pool bar. The outdoor pool is surrounded by a sun deck. There's also a shallower children's pool and an indoor pool in the spa area. You'll find a sauna, a Turkish bath and a whirlpool here, and you can book a range of treatments if relaxation is on the agenda. The hotel offers evening entertainment such as quizzes and Greek theme nights. There's a mini market on site where you can pick up holiday essentials or, if you'd like to explore the surrounding area, you can take a short stroll to the local centre where there are a few shops and restaurants. The resort of Kiotari is a short drive away.
As well as being 150m from Kiotari Beach and 600m from the nearest centre, Princess Andriana Resort & Spa is 2.7km from the middle of Kiotari, where you can find places to eat, drink and shop. For a change from the beach, you can take a 6.3km trip to the historical town of Asklipio and explore its medieval ruins, Byzantine church and museum. Around 15km away is the scenic town of Lindos, with its narrow, cobbled streets and whitewashed houses. The hotel is 65km from the UNESCO world heritage site of Rhodes Town, where you can explore the ancient ruins and the famous Street of Knights.
The buffet restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a Greek and Italian theme twice a week. You can book a table at the a la carte restaurant, which serves Mediterranean dishes. There's also an all-day restaurant that offers light dishes during the day.
The hotel has a children's pool and a kids' club. It welcomes children between the ages of 4 and 12 years old.
The hotel has a nice poolare with lagoon-type pool as well as an own part of the beach with sun loungers and parasols to borrow.
Rooms have air conditioning, satellite TV, Wi-Fi and a minibar. You can order room service, and there's a safe for your valuables.

We stayed here for a beautifully hot 10 days in September at very short notice. We had been due to travel to Crete but UK Covid quarantine rules changed that. This was a great alternative.
We had been to Rhodes the year before and stayed at the Mayia (we LOVED it there) but unfortunately that was sold out - we were looking just 3 days before our travel date.
The Princess Andriana wasn’t quite as nice but in fairness we didn’t expect it to be - the cost was considerably lower. It was good value for what we paid. The food was decent in the buffet but we’d got a little bored of it by the end of the 10 days. Although themed differently each day, after a week or so it felt a little “samey”. The hotel handled the Covid restrictions as well as you could ask - we ended up eating at quieter times because at peak times the restrictions meant it could feel busy and a little chaotic - certainly not the hotel’s fault though and it could have been way worse! Disappointingly many other customers seemed oblivious to some of the queuing systems in place to get food which led to frustrations at times.
The bookable a la carte restaurants are good too. Food to a good standard but a little disappointing for an all inclusive visit that you have to pay for drinks in one of them. All in all though, nice alternatives to the buffet.
Our room was tidy, clean and well set out. We had a small suite with a sofa and king bed. The WiFi could have been better in the room. Covid restrictions meant only water in the mini-bar and I’m told usually there would have been a selection of snacks and drinks - that obviously couldn’t be helped.
Small convenience store is good for snacks!
The spa was open for massages and treatments and we enjoyed a great couples massages on my wife’s birthday. The sauna, steam room and hot tub were closed due to Covid but we had a look at them and they’d have been great if open. Again, couldn’t be helped!
There are a good amount of shops nearby if you fancy a wander out and the Kiotari Little Train, which you can catch from just outside the hotel, is great for a tour of the local area.
Plenty of day trips available nearby too - we booked a catch trip to Rhodes town and used Lindos By Boat to go to Lindos - they pick up from Princess Andriana’s beach!
Nighttime entertainment was decent and a good laugh. Fountain light up show was cool too, especially if enjoying drinks at the pool bar or the terrace at the main bar.
Finally, the bit where we spent most of our time - the pool! Great large pool, good vibe and atmosphere. Entertainment and daily activities available but nothing so loud you can’t just pop you headphones in and ignore if you just wanted to relax. Entertainment crew all very friendly and chatty - happy to make friends or just move on if was clear you didn’t want to engage! Big thumbs up from me as someone who usually just wants to listen to music and stick my head in a book.
All in all, a great holiday at a great hotel. Just what we were looking for and we felt so lucky to be away and to have found this late notice after other plans went wrong. We relaxed with no worries for 10 days and would recommend for anyone looking to do the same. Quite honestly the Mayia is probably better for the ultimate luxury relaxation and quality food but this does very nicely and offers good £££ value if you don’t want to stretch to the Mayia.
This hotel is about a hour away from the airport we took a private taxi which was pleasant, the checking was smooth and they offered us a free upgrade to a family room which was absolutely stunning very clean two tvs a balcony and free complimentary goodies, our heart had been set on a private pool room so we was told we could upgrade at a cost the following day which we did, again a lovely room same as previous but we had our own pool which was perfect, the food unfortunately was pretty basic in the main restaurant but the ones you can book was really nice, only complaint in one of the restaurants they charge for drinks even for basic like soft drinks, the sfaff are very friendly and always willing to help the WiFi connection is not great, we didn't use the public pool as we had our own but went to the beach once which was OK, all in all I would go back.
Having chosen this hotel we were concerned to see negative reviews. I am pleased to say, ignore. Check in was fast and efficient and lovely to be told the restaurant was open until midnight.
We paid for pool view for reasons a) to be able to sit on our balcony to listen to lobby entertainment, limited seating in outdoor area b) to watch the fountain show c) people had said their sea view room overlooked main road and car park hence noisy and not the most appealing sea view. The rooms have huge balconys.
To the restaurants and bars, yes there are a few queues, but they look bigger than they are due to social distancing. So all you people moaning, if you don't want to queue don't go on holiday during covid times. The choices in the restaurants are as good as any hotel I usually visit if not better, freshly squeezed OJ, full English and much more at breakfast, Salmon and Bubbly - amazes me that people can complain. Many foods cooked fresh at the buffet with lots of other choices too. All served to you by Very polite and friendly staff as per covid guidelines. A nice touch, on your table - a glass bottle of H2O and a carafe of wine so no having to wait for your glass to be topped up
We were lucky enough to meet the Infamous George in the buffet, AND yes he is a credit to the hotel as are most of the staff, lovely pool bar staff,all pleasant and professional. The luggage man was superb.
Plenty of sunbeds and parasols, no need to reserve unless you wanted to be in a certain area.
