Grecotel Rhodos Royal, Kalithea Rhodes
★ ★ ★ ★
No weather data found for [, ”Rhodes”, ”Rhodes”, horizontal]
An All Inclusive 4-star hotel that has a definite 5-star feel in places. With a quiet, calming atmosphere throughout it would deem a more suitable property for couples, however with its pool facilities and children’s activities the hotel currently targets the family market.
The property has many modern upmarket touches, but is also let down by areas that appear more dated, probably emphasized by the stark difference between the 2 differing styles.
The large grey 5-storey main building is rather bland in appearance from the roadside with the exception of the entrance, built in a medieval castle style and partly camouflaged from the main road by mature trees whereas the exterior facing in towards the grounds features attractive arched terraces.
Off white bungalow accommodation with terracotta roof tiles are spread throughout the grounds. Balconies reasonably sized with concrete fronts.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: All rooms
Storeys: 1,2 & 5
The rather old-fashioned reception continues to a spacious modern lobby with hand painted pictures on walls, pale colours, calming music and a tree growing in the middle giving a conservatory feel.
The mix of styles continues throughout between old and new, modern and traditional. The main Rotunda bar with pale beige seating and highly polished wooden floor features an interesting Astrology fresco on the ceiling, whilst the main restaurant is generally featureless with wicker furnishings.
The Asian A la carte restaurant is modern and themed in that style for fine dining and the Yacht club beach taverna is attractive in shades of white and mint.
The spa located under a glass dome offers an indoor pool, treatment rooms, aerobic studio and fitness room.
The extensive grounds are spacious with lush lawns and various mature trees and flowers creating the feeling of being in a park rather than a hotel and lead to the long sand shingle beach.
The pool complex covers 1000 sq-metres and has children’s waterslides in the activity area as well as a children’s/teenage club.
Attractive terraces feature modern though characterless furnishings and there is more than ample room for sun-loungers.
Area Type: 3km from the centre of Kalithea and 2km from Faliraki, the hotel is located just back on the sandy shingle beach and on the main coastal road Rhodes Town to Lindos. There is a bus stop for both these destinations outside the hotel and a small shopping arcade next door. Faliraki water park and the Magic Castle Luna park are both only 250m from the entrance.
Nearest beach: Immediate (Faliraki)
