    Location 4.02 /10

    The Calypso Beach is located 1.5 miles from the seaside resort of Faliraki on the eastern coast of the island, 9 miles from the beautiful medieval city of Rhodes and 3 miles from the village of Afandou where you can visit the international golf course, dotted with olive trees.
    Faliraki is the most famous holiday spot on the island, literally on the water, giving access to numerous seaside pleasures, notably water sports, but with no sailing sports. Enjoying a dry climate with little wind, the resort is flooded with sunlight as late as October. No pebble beach will mar your stay here. A luxury for the island, which is 90% bordered by pebbles! In the evening, the resort comes alive with night activitiy and you can choose between the pleasure of having a good meal in one of the many taverns along the sea, the unbridled rhythms of the bars or even walkways along the beach. It is easy to find a vehicle at the many shops that rent scooters, motorcycles or cars. It takes about 20 minutes to reach the city of Rhodes and 30 minutes to reach the airport. As for shopping, souvenir shops are almost everywhere, in full swing in particular during summer, where you come across a clientele of mainly Germans and Englishmen, and a few Italians.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    The hotel offers a total of 302 rooms in the seven-storey building, equipped with an elevator. All overlook the sea or the gardens and are equipped with air conditioning (individually regulated), a cable television, telephone with direct dial for international calls, a radio, a full refrigerator and a hair dryer.
    They all benefit from new flooring (tiled), new modern furniture and completely refurbished walls. Fortunately!

    Overview 6.95 /10

    This hotel with modern architecture, built in 1983, was completing its latest renovations during our visit in October 2004. The Calypso has a pleasant atmosphere with its many facilities and fancy decoration and is very lively until the very end of the season. Customers have use of a beautiful swimming pool surrounded by lush vegetation and good amenities.
    The only downside: the seven-floor building, being too high, curtains the beautiful landscape of the mountains facing the sea. You will certainly love the modern architecture.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The main restaurant, serving buffet style, located on the first floor, will also be renovated. Fully air-conditioned, it has a separate area for non-smokers and offers both local and international cuisine. Thematic evenings (Greek) are regularly held. It is regretful that the tables are not arranged for privacy. A snack bar, near the large swimming pool, also serves (light) meals a la carte.
    Finally, there is a bar, one of the two in the hotel, which is very pleasant. Built on an elevated round terrace, it offers a unique view onto the blue sea.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    The hotel enjoys the use of the vast sandy beach on the bay of Faliraki stretching as far as the eye can see, almost a mile distant. Few pebbles on this part of the bay. The granite sand is dark brown. A shower with a foot-washer, toilets, dressing rooms, and plastic deckchairs set in the shade of straw huts, equip the beach which is crisscrossed by a wooden walkway. Remember that the deckchairs are chargeable, about ? 3 per half-day... And, from this point of view, all resorts here operate in this manner.
    Customers can access the sailing club of the beach near the hotel for an extra charge, as it is entirely private and has no commercial agreement with the Calypso Beach.
    Moreover, the use of pedalos has been included in the all-inclusive package, since 2005.

    To know

    This hotel facility completed a real "facelift" of the rooms of the main restaurant in October 2004. Photographs of scale models can give you a fairly clear idea of the result (see the portfolio). Another novelty, and very significant, is that the hotel adopted the all-inclusive formula in 2005. It gives considerable advantage for this facility on Rhodes, as few hotel facilities offer all-inclusive service as part of tourist packages.
    Well equipped, especially for sports activities, it benefits from the sandy beach of Faliraki, the famous seaside resort. Remember that all neighbouring resorts (fifteen in total) share the same beach, which is public, but big enough. It is rare to find a hotel with its own private beach in Rhodes.

      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.

      If you are having doubts about wearing your flip-flops at the Blue Sea Hotel, the giant aquariums in the lobby (and the fish they contain) will certainly clear that up for you, and, if that's not enough, the views of beautiful Faliraki beach will leave you in no doubt. Located just a few miles from the seaside resort itself and around ten minutes from Rhodes Town, the Blue Sea is a clean and comfortable club-hotel with simple yet modern decor.

      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.

      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.

      Previously known as Sofitel, the Capsis has now abandoned the illustrious name without loosing any of its grandeur. It is a monumental nine-floor building which includes the largest conference centre ever to be seen in a European hotel; an important asset that is likely to inspire holidaying businessmen and women. This fully-equipped establishment is the ideal choice for couples as well as families. However, don't count on doing any activities, as these are practically non-existent...

      The Olympic Palace has such an imposing architecture that it's hard to pass by it without it catching your eye. It was built towards the end of the 70s, and from the outside it rather looks like a huge space craft. However, be assured that inside, the hotel is much more pleasant and features modern furniture. The clientele is mainly made up of families, most of which come from Europe.

      From the outside, the Rodos Palace is a massive 17-storey building, impossible to miss from the coastal road that passes in front of it. 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.
