Mercure Rhodes Alexia

Contemporary and bright, with a stunning pool area and perfect location overlooking the beach, the Mercure Rhodes Alexia makes for the ideal Rhodes Town getaway. The town’s bars and eateries are nearby, it’s a short wander to the beach, and a few minutes to the gorgeous cobbled streets of the Old Town. The buffet restaurant serves up a variety of treats, and there’s a poolside snack bar, too. Come the evening, there’s a spot of entertainment on occasion, but as this place is so close to town, the world’s your oyster when it comes to nightlife.

Overview of Rhodes Town

A beautiful place with something of a split personality, holidays to Rhodes Town tend to offer two very different experiences. The Old Town is steeped in rich history, as the stunning architecture found all around will attest to. The cafes and restaurants found nestled along its cobbled streets are delightfully quaint. But the New Town is where you will find all the swanky shops and bars, together with the best beach around. The nightlife is excellent here, too. The elegant Mercure Rhodes Alexia is close to all of this, yet not at all far from all the eclectic loveliness of the Old Town.

Things to do in Rhodes Town

There’s so much to see around Rhodes Town, with a few different ways to experience it – and if you’re staying at the Mercure Rhodes Alexia, you’re nice and close to everything. The medieval Segway tour is a great way to see the Old Town, where you’ll discover why it’s been declared a Unesco World Heritage Site – the narrow, cobbled alleys lead you to an array of glorious sites such as the Ibrahim Pasha Mosque and the epic Gate Amboise. Lindos is well worth a visit too, particularly the enchanting Acropolis on top of the hill. All of this is just an hour’s drive away. Whichever side of Rhodes Town is more your speed, you’ll discover plenty to float your boat here. The scenery is incredible, there’s culture at every turn, and the beach in the new part of town is the perfect spot to kick back, switch off, and get your relax on.

Resort Summary

Elli Beach’s long stretch of smooth sand is the capital city’s hub for all things coastal. This stunning beach is well organised with tons of watersports and a fantastic selection of restaurants and snack bars lining the seaside. If you want to make a day of it there’s umbrellas and sunloungers available for hire, and plenty of fast-food and takeaway joints mean you can grab something to munch on at the beach.

For some added adventure you can swim out to the floating diving platform and take turns diving in the warm sea. Elli Beach is within walking distance of the old town area and is easily accessible by foot or bicycle.
