Club Héliades Blue Sea Beach Resort Hotel 4 star

Kalithea Rhodes, Greece
Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 6.5 /10

    Located near to a very busy road, just over 5 mi from Rhodes Town and its charming historical centre, the Blue Sea Hotel, along with its associates, enjoys an ideal location right on the vast stretches of Faliraki beach with its calm and crystal-clear waters - ideal for young children but not so good for sailing enthusiasts! Over the past few years this seaside resort has become one of the island's most popular destinations thanks to its dry weather, with the whole area bathed in sunshine right through to October, when most establishments here close for the winter. You'll not find any shingle here, which is a real luxury as the island is 90% covered in it, but you will need to be careful of the small pebbles in some parts! By day, the streets are lined with the many souvenir shops and supermarkets, and by night, the bars and taverns come alive to the great delight of the primarily German, English and Italian night-owls that the area attracts.

    Accommodation 6.50 /10

    The hotel's three separate buildings, which all have lifts, house 316 rooms, each with a floor area of around 215 sq ft (in standard rooms) and a sea view (for a supplement) or a view of the gardens or mountains. All have a furnished balcony and amenities such as central air-conditioning, a satellite television and radio, a direct international telephone line, a minibar and a small bathroom with a bathtub and a hair-dryer. The rooms are simply furnished with just one Greek painting adorning the walls, but you won't be short of storage space here! Don't worry when you can't find the safe in the wardrobe, though - these are located in the reception and incur an additional charge.

    Overview 7.00 /10

    Built in 1976 and renovated three times since 2004, the Blue Sea features modern architecture and consists of three 3 or 4-floor buildings. Generally-speaking, the Blue Sea meets international standards in terms of amenities, which, in Faliraki, is not always the case with other hotels of the same category. Some will enjoy the heated pool (at the start of the season), the jacuzzi and the massage rooms (which are not very peaceful) located near to the gym, whilst others might prefer to do a few lengths in the brand new swimming pool or perhaps even relax with a cocktail in one of the hotel's four bars.

    Food and drink 6.50 /10

    The main restaurant serves a buffet of local and international dishes and the menu is changed every other week. Packed lunches can also be provided for those who wish to go off on excursions for the day, provided that you inform the restaurant manager of this in advance. The terrace overlooking the swimming pool offers a pleasant setting to take your meals, far better than inside, where the tables are packed too close together. The food is perfectly decent here - which is more than can be said for the chemical fruit juices you get from the dispensers - and don't miss out on the Greek evening which is organised every Saturday. In addition to the buffet restaurant, the hotel also has an a la carte restaurant, a snack-bar near the beach, a poolside bar, a beach-bar and a lobby-bar, the only downside being that guests staying at the Blue Star hotel just opposite also have access to the two restaurants at the Blue Sea.

    Beach 6.90 /10

    The Blue Sea hotel and its neighbours enjoy a prime location on the vast, brown sandy beach of Faliraki bay, which stretches as far as the eye can see (for over half a mile). This part of the bay is covered with stones and shingle, but you can still kick your sandals off if you don't mind getting your feet burnt! Wooden walkways have been constructed at various points along the beach, in between the deckchairs and in the shade of the parasols, and, as is the case in most of the surrounding resorts, deckchairs are available to hire for ?4 a day. The beach also has a water sports centre, located close to the hotel, but activities do, of course, incur an additional charge as the centre is an entirely private entity and has no commercial agreement with the Blue Sea.

    To know

    The Blue Sea was renovated in 2008, during its annual closure period (from the end of October to the end of April). The rooms were renovated from top to bottom, but have nevertheless kept their old bathrooms, which could also have done with some serious updating! In terms of restaurant services, the hotel primarily operates on a half-board or full-board basis, although an all-inclusive option is available on request. The hotel's multilingual entertainment team organises a wide variety of activities, although many guests do tend to prefer their deckchairs to sports activities, particularly in the summer!

      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 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.
