Amilia Mare Resort Hotel 5 star

1 Kallithea Rhodes, Greece
Amy Adejokun Section editor

With nearly 600 rooms, the Royal Mare is a very well equipped hotel facility where everything is big. But its infrastructure, sometimes immense, sometimes too narrow, has certain disparities.

    Location 3.33 /10

    The Royal Mare is located on the eastern coast of the island, at Kalithea, 4 miles from the city of Rhodes and its historical treasures, and 12.5 miles from the international airport. Following the beautiful coastal highway south of the city of Rhodes, running to Faliraki, you will go through Koskino, a small village that will seduce you with the colour of its houses. Then, descending to the sea through a pine forest, you come to the spa resort of Kalithea, inaugurated during the Italian occupation in 1929. The buildings, the sea and the palm trees are like a true Hollywood scene. You can swim and take diving lessons. Just as in the seaside resort of Faliraki, 3 miles south, it is easy to find a vehicle for rent at the shops offering scooters, motorbikes or cars.
    It takes about 15 minutes to reach the city of Rhodes and 25 minutes to reach the airport.

    Accommodation 7.50 /10

    The hotel has 575 standard rooms each about 215 ft² in size (with a sea or garden view), family rooms and studios / apartments (with a garden view) and 12 suites (with a sea view). All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, satellite TV, an empty refrigerator (or a mini-bar, upon request), direct dial telephone for calls abroad, a furnished balcony or veranda, a safe (extra charge) and a bathroom with a bathtub, magnifying mirror and hair dryer. Simply furnished in shades of beige and light blue, floored with fitted carpet, each room has an armchair. The white walls are decorated with paintings of Grecian landscapes.
    The suites, twice as large, also offer a kit for making tea / coffee, a CD player, refreshments and fruits (daily) along with many amenities and additional services. Located on the fifth floor, they offer a spectacular view of the bay... and the beautiful medieval town of Rhodes!

    Overview 7.50 /10

    Built in 1973 and completely renovated in 1999, the hotel consists of several buildings and displays modern architecture. The main building, where the rooms and the reception area are located, has five floors. The hotel is designed in smoothly aligned levels following the mountainous terrain, until reaching the small beach in the form of a cove. But it is necessary to climb up and down a few steps to move from one place to another. No facilities have been planned for elderly or disabled guests. Nevertheless, the view from the main bar overlooking either the big swimming pool or the bay is mostly enjoyable. Large frescoes representing the knights of Rhodes decorate the columns in the immense lobby.

    Food and drink 6.75 /10

    Four restaurants are located in three buildings: they are sometimes not enough to serve two hotels and too much for a single hotel. The main restaurant, Simposio, is entirely non-smoking (indoors) and serves breakfast and dinner buffet-style. The immense hall can accommodate up to 706 seats. The tables are a little bit too cramped despite the apparent effort to create some human scale spaces. International and local cuisine. Three times a week, a thematic evening is organised. Nearby, not far from the reception area and the swimming pool, is La Pergola snack bar, open from 10 AM to 6 PM, well equipped with blue plastic furniture covered with beautiful tablecloths. It occupies a very large area. Open during the same hours is the seaside grill restaurant, Nautilus, and the snack bar, Albatros. Only the gourmet restaurant, Dionysos, serving a la carte (seafood and Italian specialties), creates an area of little privacy. The main bar, one of the three within the hotel premises, is made of wood. Note that a dress code is required in all restaurants of the hotel: shorts and bathing suits are prohibited.

    Beach 6.50 /10

    Flowery, adequately equipped with deckchairs and sunshades, the Royal Mare beach has only one downside - but a big one -: its tiny area. At the end of the season, it may be pleasant to bathe in its clear waters. Light brown sand, a few pebbles. It has a wooden bridge bordered by flowers and there is a sailing club nearby. But as far as the Royal Mare is concerned, and regardless of the nearby hotel, it is clear that quietness is completely absent during summer. If you want to enjoy more space and less crowdedness, you have to drive a few miles south to the public beaches of Faliraki, but surrounded by hotels, or the beautiful Tsambika, quite popular during the weekend.

    To know

    Located at the heart of Kalithea, the former spa resort where you can now enjoy the pleasure of swimming and diving, you can reach the Royal Mare hotel via a small asphalt path climbing up, which is rarely indicated on the freeway. Nearby is the Paradise Village hotel, which belongs to the Greek hotel chain, Aldemar (with a total capacity of 5,500 beds). Customers of both hotels (over 800 rooms in total) share the same restaurants, which have sometimes disproportionate dimensions. It is pleasant if you like big structures. In the rest of the rooms, the amenities and the decoration match perfectly.
    You can stay on the half or full pension plan.

      • Location -

      The Louis Colossos Beach is a (colossal!) 742 room hotel, 7 mi from the ancient site of the extremely famous Colossus of Rhodes. However, while this wonder of the world only stood for around 60 years, the hotel itself is well set to continue accommodating guests on its 7 floors for years to come... Built some twenty years ago, although the hotel has been updated it lacks somewhat in originality.

      The 4-star Kresten Palace affords beautiful panoramic views of the sea from its hill-top location, and it is a modern yet typically Rhodian establishment which offers a wide variety of sports facilities and entertainment organised by a largely Italian team. There is, of course, a price to pay for such views, this being that the beach (which is surrounded by rocks) is unfortunately a 5 to 10-minute walk down from the hotel, although this also means that it doesn't get too crowded!

      The Kalithea Mare Palace is located opposite Cape Bodi in an elevated position that offers several unobstructed sea views. The hotel does not have its own beach but shares one with its neighbour, the Kalithea Horizon Royal. The two establishments also have the same reception. The clientele is mostly made up of Germans. Guests don't come here for a quiet and relaxing stay but rather to do some socialising. Given the limited space around the swimming pool, you will probably get to know your neighbours! However, while you are bound to make some acquaintances here, the facilities are disappointing.

      In addition to sharing the reception with the Kalithea Mare Palace, guests staying at the Kalithea Horizon Royal can access its neighbour's amenities for no additional charge. However, there is no denying that the Horizon Royal offers a better set of facilities; for example, larger spaces around the swimming pools. Indeed, space is one of the qualities found in abundance at the hotel, but the resulting distances can be trying under the hot sun... To make up for this drawback, a shuttle does the rounds of the hotel on a daily basis, but only during the daytime. Most of the guests staying at the hotel are families, partly because children are well looked after here.

It's not the most welcoming of places at first glance, but once inside, guests remember that they shouldn't judge a book by its cover. However, the 70s inspired style is very present here, which might not be to the liking of all guests! However, despite its age, the Rodos Palace offers facilities that are suitable for guests of all ages. Interestingly, the hotel has welcomed some very famous guests, such as François Mitterrand and Margaret Thatcher.

      The 5* Ixian Grand was built in 1978 and underwent a complete makeover in 2007, which makes it hard to believe that it is over 30 years old! The new incarnation is designed to a contemporary, designer template. Just a few feet from the beach, the hotel has few sports facilities and not much in the way of organised entertainment and activities. It is therefore best suited to couples without children, or families passing through.
