All the other villages have no tourism. Kiotari has many high class hotels with unique architecture offering almost everything to the customers. 75% of the best in kiotari are 4*. Although the worst selection that customers can do is All inclusive hotels. The hotels in order to reduce cost they also reduce quality. That started from Spain and continued in Greece. Although recently Spanish stopped it because they had to drop the quality and that is not the case and the kind of tourism they wanted to attract.

Municipality of South Rhodes has an advantage over the rest of Rhodes and that is the traditional villages that constitute South Rhodes. They are still traditional because tourism hasn't reached them and as such people hven't built on the land hotels or shops or anything like it and that maintains them naturally beautiful and traditional. Some of the festivals organized from the locals such as the festival of water melons in Apollakia attract a vast amount of visitors. South Rhodes is the last undeveloped municipality of Rhodes except Kiotari of the east side of the Island. Slowly though the construction of new hotels in the area will help South Rhodes to develop.
