Suggestions for a base in Rhodes

Jump to last reply

I am looking for a base for a small family (2 adults + 9 year old) for our annual summer holiday which we plan to spend (mostly at any rate) in Rhodes. Got some great suggestions here before so hoping people can come up with some ideas for me.

We've visited Rhodes before, many years ago, and stayed in the old town. We will visit the old town again on this trip, but would prefer to stay by the sea in a resort (ideally within shouting distance of the old town so we can visit in the evenings, but if that's not possible we might split the trip into 2 and do a few days in the old town and the rest of the time elsewhere).

We are looking for a base for a relaxing holiday. I want to pick the village / resort first, and then find somewhere to stay. What we want is a town or village by the sea, with plenty of restaurants/tavernas and a nice atmosphere. Some places we have loved in Greece (to give you an idea of the kind of place I am thinking of) are:

- Tolo
- Naoussa in Paros
- Naxos town
- Kalymnos town
- Finnikounda

On Rhodes we want somewhere that has a bit of life. I am worried that I do not know enough about the different resorts there and we will mistakenly end up somewhere tacky. Two places that seem to get good reviews from the research I have done to date are Afandou and Faliraki, but I wonder am I missing somewhere.

Thank you in advance

Jane
