Kalithea Horizon Royal  


Overlooking a peacock-blue bay, this hotel serves up impressive views. Rhodes Town isn’t far away, either – it’s about a ten-minute drive. And when you want to explore a little closer to home, the famous Baths of Kalithea are about a 15-minute walk away.

In terms of swimming pools, there are six to choose from. They’re laid out over three levels and linked by waterfalls. Elsewhere, you’ll find a well-equipped gym and a mini-golf course. And if you’ve got little ones in tow, there is a miniclub, a splash pool and an adventure playground.

The hotel itself fans out in a horseshoe around the headland, so most rooms come with a sea view. Inside, they’re all smart and well-dressed. Each one gets its own private balcony, plus extras like air-conditioning, minibars and satellite TVs.

As for the dining scene, it’s all about big international buffets. We’re talking Continental breakfasts, traditional Greek dishes and plenty of well-known favourites. Theme nights and show cooking are regular fixtures, too.

Warning pay attention for jewelry shop

Excellent hotel, great holiday! Really really great, good service, great food, very clean etc... I would recommend this strongly to everyone. But I want to warn everyone: do not buy anything in the jewelry shop in the hotel. The jewels are sold for real gold, but they are not! It is silver and gold plated, but you pay the price for gold. I bought a ring and bracelet in 14 karat gold, I had it tested at home, it was silver and gold plated. So they have no value at all! Please pay attention!!!!!!!!More

Fantastic Holiday

We went to this hotel on the 31st August for 10 days and it was fantastic. The hotel is kept very clean and tidy, and all staff were very pleasant and could not do enough to help you. It does seem very big complex but when you know your way round its ok. We never had a problem getting a sun lounger by the pool even though we did not get by the pool till about 10am. The beach was good as well but you do have to pay for the loungers and brolly down there which were 5 euros. Food was very good and was enough choice even for the fussy eaters, and did not have a problem getting a seat. Worth booking for the al a carte as the meal was very good. We went all inclusive and it was a good job we did as Rhodes seemed expensive if you were eating out. We did go on one of the Thomson trips to Lindos which was good place to visit but we felt it was expensive for what we got so would suggest to go but organise it yourselves as it cost us 116 euros for both of us but did not include a lunch or entrance fee to the Temple of Athena. We would go back to this hotel as it was a good chill out holiday.More

very enjoyable

We stayed there in August 2012 ie last summer. It was good - we spent most of the time with our young daughter in the hotel swimming pools, the one with three in a row (different levels). These pools are good - the first lowest pool is smallest and shallow, the middle one is larger and deeper, and the third and largest is much deeper - easily suitable for adults. We spent 90% of our time in the smaller two pools, as my daughter is learning to swim. It was really good fun; we made friends with anoher family with a similar aged daughter so they spent most of the time playing. Food was good; we only stayed for one week so it was no problem. It was a bit like other package holidays in that I would imagine if we had stayed for two weeks it would not have been the most amazing food, but nothing to complain about, really. Lunch in the small indoor pool place (near the three pools I'm talking about) was ok as a light lunch, plus they do drinks. Staff were friendly. Room was good. Our absoulte main complaint is the lack of sun loungers. Yes - we had to do that thing where you go out warly to grab some, becuase there is not enough. I find that so frustrating I can't tell you. I *hate* going out to do battle to get some sun loungers, it's just ridiculous when you've paid a few thousand pounds for a holiday. Hopefully they will supply more, in which case I would increase my star rating. We would stay there again, depending on price. This year we're going to a similar hotel on Kos, so it all depends on prices for these sorts of similar hotels, in my opinion.More

We had a lovely holiday

We stayed in the hotel from the 9th till the 23rd of June. We had booked it because our son got married in the Therms of Kalithea. As well the wedding as the holiday was a lovely experience. We had asked a quiet room and got a room in the main building above the snack bar with a view on the swimming pool. The room and the bathroom was spacious, beds were lovely. Cleaners work hard and change towls every day. They left sometimes flowers or sweets on our pillow. The building has only a few floors so you can easy walk up and down, the lifts are nearly always immediate available. The hotel is big and has lots of guests. Despite their busy job the people on the reception are always friendly, make time for every guest and give you correct information, also about things outside the hotel. Considering we were half board we always had food in the main restaurant. As well for breakfast and dinner the buffets were giant. In the morning there was always fresh fruit, cold vegetables, cakes, pancakes, different kinds of yoghurt, hot food,... Too much to list up. There was even a 'light' buffet !! In the evening there was lovely starters, salads, hot meals,.... There are no fixed tables but it was never a problem to find a free table. We were served by Thula and her collegues and this went always quick and with a big smile. All the staff made us really feel very welcome. We loved having a coffee in one of the bars during the day. Friendly spotless service and we got always free cake, glass of water and 'schnaps' with it... Yummie... The beach is down hill, but the nice clean water and the coffee +... was a nice reward and made the walk back up enjoyable. In the evening we enjoyed a short walk in the resort - lovely gardens with loads of flowers or a drink in the main bar. In case you go halve board, take enough cash with you as everything needs to be paid immediate. It is not possible to withdrawl money in the hotel and the nearest ATM is at least 25 minutes walking along the main road (down and up hotel) in another hotel.More
