Here you will find large, luxury hotels, a few well-run restaurants and tavernas, a shopping centre with more or less anything you need (mini markets, bakeries, patisseries and cash machines) - these are the main features of what is in fact the most contemporary and stylish resort on Rhodes.

Kiotari has grown up over the last ten years along an impressive, vast beach, but does not suffer from the same tourist saturation which has affected some of the other traditional beach resorts of Rhodes.

You will find no real community here, just shops and hotels, many of which operate the all-inclusive system, and thus their guests spend almost the whole of their days within the hotel's facilities and on their private beaches. Most of the holidaymakers are families or couples, looking for peace and quiet by the sea, although there are a number of local people who come down on summer weekends as well. Even if you are not staying here it is worth stopping for a swim on the superb beach with its damp sand.

The section of Kiotari beach underneath Rodos Maris Resort is where we spent the most of our one-week vacation. We purchased some beach shoes, which were a real lifesaver, because the sand was rather coarse and there were many pebbles that were quite hot to walk on. The water gets rather deep quickly near the beachfront due to the relatively steep seabed drop, making it ideal for swimming. It was a tremendous delight cooling down in the water after spending time in the scorching heat. There were marker buoys to indicate the safe swimming areas, keeping people away from the many different water sports activities you can find at Kiotari.

Other beaches like Pefkos, Lindos, or Glystra are better options if you prefer a pristine sandy beach. The Lindos Imperial in Kiotari has its own sun loungers and a beach cafe that is a part of the hotel complex, so guests who have all-inclusive packages can enjoy lots of beverages and food for free. Kiotari beach is large so there are also many places that are relatively free of crowds.

Lovely beach but very stoney so you need beach shoes to go in the sea. Not too busy either, and watersports available at many places at a reasonable price. We found a couple of beach bars and some nice restaurants.

Kiotari is an up and coming area, but dont let this put you off. Wonderful bus service takes you into perfect pefkos or the lovely Lindos. Year after year we visit Rhodes(Pefkos or Lindos)but fancied a change and booked Kiotari and it didnt dissapoint. The hotel was supeb and all facilities great, beach great too. Some nice little shops and cafes across the road. Lovely peaceful week, cant wait to return.
