Kalithea Horizon Royal  

TripAdvisor reviewers love this beachfront hotel – and no wonder, when it’s got six pools to choose between.

You get six pools to choose between here. There’s lots going on at them, too, from aqua aerobics to Zumba. And the choice of restaurants includes two pool bars and a taverna-style place overlooking the beach.

You're in a prime spot for sightseeing - it's a 10-minute drive to Rhodes Town, while the famous Baths of Kalithea are a 15-minute walk away. And if you're after the beach, it's just a few minutes' stroll to the bay.

That's just an absolutely amazing place! They have an own beautiful bay with beach restaurant. We will definitely visit that amazing hotel again! The hotel complex is really huge so you have pretty nice space for night walks. Unfortunately, when we booked this hotel, we didn't inform the hotel about our only criterion: no rooms at ground floor and promptly got one. At the reception we explained why we couldn't stay in this room and 2 days later they gave us another one, with amazing view to the sea - it was completely our fault but they had been so nice and gave us another room - absolutely great! And when you book, then all inclusive - we had half-board and it was good too, but with all incl.you have more choice. In high season summers it's also because of drinking a lot non-alcoholic drinks, with half-board you need to pay 2.50€ each drink.More

superb holiday hotel

We arrived for the last week of the season (October half-term). On arrival we were upgraded from superior room to royal suite and given a welcome gift. A great start to a holiday. The hotel was brilliant. Grounds were immaculate, room was spacious (well, so they should be given the upgrade!) plenty of space around pools (always found a lounger even later in the day), and the staff were very friendly. The food in the restaurant was great, lots of choice and always fresh - even our fussy teenager looked forward to meals and wanted more. The local bus stops right outside the hotel and taxis will take you into town for only 10euros. Plenty to see on the island which is a lovely place to visit. The reception staff spoke good English and were very helpful. Choice of bars and restaurants on site was good too, the site is quite spread out but that was part of the attraction as the grounds were so pleasant When checking out we were given a farewell drink and gift. This was an amazing hotel and equally amazing holiday. We would recommend this hotel without hesitation and hope to return.More

Absolutely marvelous

Stayed here for 11 nights October and had the best holiday ever. We had an all inclusive superior sea view room by the Mythos pool with a brilliant view. The complex is massive and it takes a while to get your bearings but well worth it. The usual brilliantly clean room, exceptional hard working staff and food to die for. We don't usually go for the entertainment but thoroughly enjoyed what was on offer and would recommend to others. We would have breakfast at the Athena restaurant with a large choice of food and evening meal at the Thalassa restaurant as this suited us best but you could eat in either. Daytime meals depended on where we were but the Delfinia snack bar was good as was everywhere else. Drinks where of a good standard and lots of variety including champagne cocktails. I think everything else has been covered by others so won't go on about how good the Kalithea Horizon is. We spent our evenings in between the Kalithea main bar and the Apollo lounge but preferred the Kalithea main bar where the staff were excellent and made your stay memorable. The lovely "Marina" in the main bar needs a special mention, sorry can't remember others but they all did a good job. We chose to sunbath at the Mythos pool as it was quieter and Cleopatra and the other one(sorry)made you feel very welcome and the snacks and drink were excellent. There were also gyros and other food available from the viewpoint below the Mythos, don't miss it! You have to pay for wifi but we found out if your within view of the Kalithea Springs you can pick up their wifi for free lol. We never went to the beach here as you had to pay for sunbeds/brolly/drinks/food so can't comment, but we did travel to other beaches near by as we hired a car for the full holiday duration. They were starting to shut down the complex as we were there the last week but you never felt like you were being overlooked. Overall an excellent choice of hotel and we don't usually return to the same hotel but would definitely return here.More

Outstanding Hotel

One of the best hotels in Rhodes, great food, great service and clear water (one of the best places to snorkel in Rhodes). You need to rent a scooter/bike or car to go to Rhodes city or Faliraki, The hotel is build on a hill but you can take a trainservice to the beach.More

Superb hotel

Visited Rhodes 24/9 - 8/10 for my sisters wedding. Entertainment was fantastic. Rooms large and clean. Food varied and tasty. Swimming pools rather cold. Staff friendly & helpful. Not many English people there, mainly Germans, Scandernavian's etc. But had the nicest most relaxing holiday ever. Will return when funds allow. Deffo recommendMore
