Suspended between sea and sky, a short distance away from the lively tourism of the village of Faliraki, the Lucas Cypria is a modern hotel perfect for families or couples anxious to preserve a modicum of peace and quiet on a lively holiday. The only downside of its location is that you won't be able to roll out of the hotel and straight onto the beach...

The Club Lucas Cypria is positioned on the hillside above the seaside resort of Faliraki, on the east coast of the island, some 9 mi from the Medieval citadel of Rhodes and 3 mi from the village of Afandou, which is home to the island's international golf course. It takes about 20 minutes to reach the city of Rhodes and 30 minutes to reach the international airport. Faliraki is one of the most popular destinations on the island. Enjoying a dry climate with little wind, the resort is flooded with sunshine until as late as October. No shingle will mar your stay here, which is a luxury on this island considering 90% of the beaches are covered in pebbles! In the evening, the resort starts getting lively, with noise coming from the pubs along the seafront, music pumping from the bars, and the sound of the waves... Thanks to the many centres hiring out scooters, motorbikes and cars, it is easy to hire transport here. As for shopping, there is certainly no shortage of souvenir shops in the summer, full of German and English customers and the odd French tourist.
The hotel's 356 guest rooms come in various categories and are scattered about the luxurious gardens, so make sure yours is a good distance from the dance floor if you like an early night! The walk to the reception area (which also houses the bar and the main restaurant) can be a bit tiresome at first, but you'll soon get used to the healthy stroll! Some of the rooms are housed in the new part of the hotel that was built in 2005. All quite large, with parquet flooring and modern wooden furniture, they are equipped with a telephone (direct international line), cable television, a refrigerator, and individual air conditioning. The bathrooms are not particularly charming but they are reasonably sized (which is something of a rarity on the island) and come with a bathtub, a wash basin, and a hair dryer. Take note that the rooms are not cleaned on Sundays, when the cleaning staff have their day off.
In 2005, a new space (and a new swimming pool) was added to the original construction, which dates back to 1986. Therefore, the Luca Cypria now consists of a main building and 25 smaller 2-floor buildings dotted around a huge park full of vegetation - an uncommon bonus on this island. As a result, guests shouldn't struggle to find a deckchair in the shade next to the main swimming pool. The facilities also include two other pools: one close to the main building, and the other directly inside the mini-club, making it very popular with younger visitors!
Food and drink
In spite of its size, the hotel only has a snack bar, two bars (the main bar and pool bar) and a main restaurant, which is comprised of a large indoor room and a terrace with a magnificent view of Faliraki. If you wish to eat with the breeze ruffling your hair, request this on the day you arrive, because the table you sit at on the first day becomes your table for the rest of the holiday! Afterwards, it can be hard to change places. Breakfast and lunch are served as a buffet with a standard mixture of simple but decent Greek and international dishes. At lunchtime, or if you're just feeling a little peckish, head for the snack bar near the pool, which is open continuously from 10:00am until 12:30am. It is nothing to get excited about, though, because the few self-service sandwiches on offer are dry and rather plain. Three times a week, theme nights are organised in the main restaurant, with a barbecue on Monday, an Italian theme on Friday and Greek on Sunday.
Although the Luca Cypria does not boast its own beach, it does offer a nice 'digestive' walk down to the public Kathara Beach! If you are less keen to stretch your legs, you can always take the shuttle bus to the seaside between 10:00am and 4:00pm. It also offers an 'all inclusive' package, which allows you to eat at any time of day. At reception, there is a young French-speaking lady of Asian origin. However, as far as languages go, most of the staff, including the entertainment team speak German, so this is the occasion to practise your German!

Correspondant à nos attentes, cet hôtel est idéal pour un break en famille. Véritable petit cocon, l'hôtel est apaisant de par sa végétation omniprésente qui nous fait vivre un moment hors du temps. L'architecture des bâtiments y est pour le mieux dépaysante. Le personnel contribuera à cet agréable moment en étant toujours accueillant et efficace en cas de problème. La formule du "all-inclusive" prend, dans cet hôtel, tout son sens grâce à ses multiples bars, snacks, et restaura
En premier lieu ses spacieuses terrasses avec vue directe sur la mer qui sont à couper le souffle. Diverses activités y sont proposées afin de ne jamais s'ennuyer. Les plus fainéants apprécieront eux, le bar dans la piscine, le jacuzzi et la wif
Premièrement, la chambre pour 4 personnes quelques peu décevante (trop basique). Il faudra parfois y faire attention aux insectes. Puis, les musiques diffusées l'après-midi au coin piscine vous gênent vite pendant vote sieste sur le transat..
Ideally situated on the extreme northern tip of the island, near the beach and the medieval city of Rhodes, the Mediterranean hotel is a high-end comfortable facility which attracts couples and elderly tourists.
The Agla is a small 4-star hotel hidden away in a quiet area near the Old Town of Rhodes and just 5 minutes from the new town and its shops, making it the ideal location for combining the beach, shopping and culture. No entertainment is provided at the hotel, so it is not the best place for a long stay with children, however, the establishment is perfectly suited for couples and more generally those just passing through the town for a couple of days.
If you had to sum up the Rhodos Beach, the first word to come to mind would be 'simplicity'. It is a reasonably-sized 3-star hotel located facing the sea (and, unfortunately, the road!) with a much more intimate feel to it than most of the island's resorts. There is no organised entertainment, and there are very few facilities, but the peace and quiet, which some may consider to be an advantage, can quickly become frustrating if you have come in search of a lively holiday!
The Belvedere is located opposite Kanari beach and it is an imposing four-floor building which can initially appear somewhat off-putting. The inside of the building is also lacking in charm, though the hotel does have the significant advantage of being well located and well-equipped for a town hotel. It also offers beautiful views across the sea, particularly at sunset. You are sure to enjoy your stay here, provided that you are not too sensitive to the noise of passing cars! In fact, you will need to cross a rather busy road to reach the beach from here. In short, this hotel is to be recommended to couples (particularly the elderly) or those just passing through the town.
Relying mainly on its all-inclusive formula, the Mareblue Cosmopolitan is a vast holiday playground. The lawns and sun decks of the hotel are filled with deckchairs and guests can enjoy seaside pleasures all day long. It is difficult to find a quiet, isolated corner in this resort. Open since 1996, this huge structure with its imposing architecture is operational during the summer season, from April to October. The clientele is made up of various different nationalities and includes lots of families.

Sentido Ixian Grand

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.

The imposing 4 to 6-storey Electra Palace Resort is rather alarming at first sight, but turns out to be a good place to laze around or let off steam taking part in the numerous activities organised by a well-motivated team. Built in 1974, it was fortunately completely renovated in 2007 and now presents a modern face to the world, just a stone's throw from the Aegean Sea.

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.
