Club Héliades Irene Palace Hotel 4 star
Kolymbia, Rhodes Rhodes, Greece
Amy Adejokun Section editor

Standing on the edge of a very pretty beach, the Club Olympien Irene Palace is an impressive modern hotel without any particular charm... The atmosphere is warm and relaxed here though, which together with the professionalism of the staff and the quality of the amenities makes for a very enjoyable and pleasant family holiday. You will also find it difficult to not be seduced by the view from the rooms, with the Aegean sea and the crystal-clear waters of Kolympia beach.

    Location 6.0 /10

    The Irene Palace is located on the east coast of the island, close to the small village of Kolymbia, 15 mi from Rhodes and the international airport. Access to the airport is made via the beautiful main road, south of the capital city. 15 mi further south, you will come across the charming village of Lindos and its famous acropolis. Nestled in surrounding green vegetation, the hotel occupies an ideal central location: it is possible to visit all of the island's main tourist attractions in the blink of an eye (well, almost).

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    Two types of rooms are available: standard rooms (247) or family rooms (a total of 9). The categories vary according to the view of the sea, the garden or the mountains. The family rooms consist of a 516 sq ft main room, but families can also opt for two 258 sq ft communicating standard rooms. The latter are fitted with double beds, two bedside cabinets, a small table and some chairs, a desk, a refrigerator, a telephone, a television, central air-conditioning, a safe (?2 a day) and a balcony with a table and some chairs. In the bathrooms, guests will find a pale blue bathtub and washbasin, hospitality products and a hair-dryer. The decoration, whether you like it or not, is at least more original than some others, thanks to the flashy colours used: orange cushions, dark blue walls, curtains, furniture and carpet.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    Although interior common areas have nothing particular to show for themselves, the outdoor amenities are worth a look! Some areas hidden away in the surrounding greenery will make you want to have a nap in the shade. Comfortably seated, away from the other guests, you will be far, far away from the hustle and bustle which can sometimes be found on other parts of the island. As soon as you wake up, you will be able to enjoy a swim in the large pool, relax in the jacuzzi, practice your table tennis skills, play miniature golf, tennis, volleyball, football, basketball or even giant chess! The cherry on the cake: the fact that the hotel has a host of amenities for children only, such as a mini-club, a playground and even a private go-kart track!

    Food and drink 6.50 /10

    Only one restaurant (470 guests) is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Served as a buffet, indoor or outdoor, the Greek and international dishes aren't very varied. Two unoriginal Italian and Greek themed dinners are organised in the week: The rest of time, guests can have a light meal at the snack bar, which is open from 12:00pm to 3:00pm, or sip at cocktails at the main bar or pool bar, whose staff are very friendly. Guests can choose from all the classic options, ranging from B&B to 'all-inclusive'.

    Beach 6.30 /10

    A paved footpath leads the way to the beach nearby. Washed by transparent water, it would be perfect if it didn't have so many deckchairs and parasols placed here and there and if it wasn't covered in pebbles! Moreover, the music from the next-door Eden Club hotel can become a bit of a nuisance... Be aware that a charge of ?3 a day will be requested from you for the hire of beach towels. As with many of the neighbouring resorts, the activities offered by the (exterior) watersports centre are available for an extra fee.

    To know

    Nature lovers will be delighted to hear that the Irene Palace is awarded a Blue Flag every year by the EU for the cleanliness of the beach and the quality of its water. Culture lovers will also be delighted to hear that the hotel encourages its guests to actively participate in the programme: 'Local customs and traditions'. During the months of April and May, for example, the Irene Palace invites anyone who wishes, to observe the silk worm's life cycle. On May 1st, guests can go and pick the flowers needed for the spring celebrations wreaths. Further actions in favour of culture are supported by the hotel, such as the Medieval Carnival or the International Ecofilm Festival.

      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.
