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.

Everything going for it but
So this was our 2nd trip to this hotel, the only time we have ever returned to a hotel before. Funnily enough not much has changed which was both good and bad. The good off course is the location and views are stunning, I could stare at them all day long. The food was always pretty good and not too repetitive and the drinks I can't complain as they were always great too. The entertainment was fun, and always pretty good standard compared to some places we have been The staff Cleopatra is a delight at the Mythos pool and Savvas up at the Kalithea mare bar is a star, some others are hit and miss but mostly great The Guests hmm now the Germans, I didn't feel they were treated better BUT they were quite rude and demanding so they got served quicker. They would turn up to the entertainment at the last minute and move all the seats to suit them in their large groups and the same with the sunbeds. Seriously we used to wonder if they knew how to smile too! On the topic of sunbeds, if you want one at the main cascade of pools featured in all the brochures then set your alarm, all beds were gone by 8-830am, most were in the same spots day after day. However the other pool areas like Mythos didn't have this problem except for a couple of guests who were up early every day (Hi Green Towel couple!) Unfortunately some of the guests made meal times quite annoying, pushing in, not having any manners and generally thinking they owned the place. TOP TIP - Don't wasn't your time booking the al a carte, the staff here were rude, the food was horrible, we left before dessert and went to the buffet for food! Overall its a lovely resort, and you make your own fun and the good things are really good and bad not always the resorts fault but some of the guests let it down because they think they have ownership rights just because they were German. We didn't notice this as much on our 1st visit but this time it really irritated us. We won't be backMore
Me and my girlfriend have just been here for a week and it is a very clean place. The grounds around the hotel are immaculate as are all the pool areas and resteraunts. Food is a bit repetitive but there is plenty of choice. Struggled to get a sun bed near pool as they were all gone by about 8 but plenty of sun beds behind the bar and down at the beach. Entertainment was good though not enough seats so lots of people sitting on steps. Staff were very helpful and friendly including the animation team which was a great laugh with water polo and Zumba in the pool. Only problem we had is the foreigners are very ignorant, they were always shouting and cutting infront of everyone at the queue for dinner. We would go back recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to go! More
Such a joy to visit this hotel again. This time we took friends with us and they could see just what we have been talking about. This was our fourth stay and we would stay again. The staff were amazing as before and we were welcomed back like honoured guests, which made the holiday for us. Thank you once again for a wonderful holiday Kalithea Horizon HotelMore

Went with my partner for a week in mid-may and after reading the reviews were really looking forward to it and were certainly not disappointed. Hotel: It's massive! Very hilly so be prepared to stretch those legs although there is a mini bus that stops in various places. It shares with Kalithea Mare which was slightly confusing to begin with but can use their facilities aswel and even reception is shared! Room: We were in a superior room which had amazing views over the private cove from the balcony and was only a 30 second trot to mythos pool. Bed huge and comfy and bathroom lovely with all the mod cons you'd expect. Safe was free to use and had a key for it instead of those annoying combi locks! TV had couple of British channels but hardly had it on. Loads of storage space and also mini fridge that's meant to be replenished every 3 days but we had to ask at reception after 5 days as it never got filled. Very clean though. Food: Not going to moan about this hotel but we've been to lots of AI's and this to us was it's ONLY let down. Lunch not very warm and choice of dinner wasn't the greatest but was fresh and good service from the waiting staff. Ate at two places for dinner and the one nearest the Mare was probably the better one. Pools: Amazing! We spent most the time at Mythos pool and even though I get up quite early there were always plenty sunbeds available almost all day! The sunbeds themselves were great, very comfy with small side table on each one and a parasol per two beds. Entertainment: Best AI we been to for this. At the Mare bar they had proper groups most nights like Drifters, Jersey boys, Diva night plus Greek night. Service was great and not once did we have to go to the bar as the staff were all fantastic. Really nice place to chill then dance around with everybody up on their feet! Drinks: Fantastic! Local beer was ice cold and certainly not weak stuff that you often find at other AI's! Massive cocktail list with about 25 choices and all really strong especially the Kalithea special!! Beach: Stunning for swimming off the rocks and snorkelling. You have to pay for beds but we just took towels down and swam off the rocks. Crystal clear water and loads fish around. Top tips: We booked a taxi on line to pick us up from airport as heard bit of a drama on transfer bus. It cost 35 euros but worth every penny as later found out took bus 2 hours to get to hotel which is only 25 mins away as waited for connecting flight and various drop offs etc. We sat all unpacked sipping cocktails before bus got in! Result!! Kalithea springs is a must.. lovely bay and chapel and can walk there or get road train from outside hotel which takes you then picks you up 3 hours later.. def worth a morning there. There is a boat that picks you up from hotel beach and goes to lindos which is a fantastic day out. Takes just over 2 hours to get there and has swim stops on way back after letting you have about 3 hours free time to roam the narrow cobbled streets or take a donkey ride to the acropolis! I'd advise you to let reception know if your going on it as they'll ring boat man to tell him to stop at the bay for you! Overall it was an amazing week and so relaxing. No queuing for food and very quiet around the pools but maybe that's because no school hols lol.. we will be going back and possibly for our honeymoon in two years time.. yes, it really is that good guys!

Great location,Very nice relaxing holiday
The location is perfect,the room was nice with sea view cleaned daily ( no towel art ) the grounds are well kept restaurants are catered for all with a great choice ( always something for the pallet) for those fussy eaters. The staff make your stay enjoyable as they are very friendly nothing is too much trouble,the bar staff in all the bars keep your drinks topped up Sava's and his team especially. Entertainment was very good with one or two acts going that extra mile to see guests enjoying themselves Dimitri being one of them the animation team with Panda giving you daily workouts with his aqua gym ,my only criticism is that the beach bar is not part of the AI although its run by the hotel staffMore
