The Pegasos Beach is located 1.5 miles from the seaside resort of Faliraki on the eastern coast of the island, 8 miles from the beautiful medieval city of Rhodes and 4 miles from the village of Afandou where you can visit the international golf course, dotted with olive trees. Faliraki is the most famous holiday place on the island, literally on the water, giving access to the pleasures of seaside resort activities including water sports, but 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 and you can choose between the pleasure of 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 which 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 few Italians.
The hotel has 280 rooms of good size (about 215 ft² each) throughout the six-storey building with a lift leading to wide corridors. All rooms overlook the beautiful bay and the sea or the mountains but, unfortunately, the road that leads to Faliraki or Rhodes is located less than 50 feet from the building. To get to the hotel it is practical, but it is bad if you wish tranquillity! Each room has a small balcony and is equipped with air conditioning, cable TV, telephone (with direct dial for international calls), a radio, an empty refrigerator, a safe (paid) and a hair dryer. They are simply furnished and tiled in white and salmon colours. The rooms walls, decorated with a rattan painting and a mirror, are painted snow-white.
Just like its neighbours, the Pegasos - built in 1985 and renovated in 2000 - has modern architecture. A large, high edifice! - a six-storey building in the shape of an 'L' facing the sea houses all the rooms. But it conceals the beautiful landscape of the mountains... At the entrance, a large stone sculpture of the famous Pegasus, depicted reared-up, greets visitors. The theme of horses is well-represented in the hotel and you come across it in numerous paintings. The decoration is modest. The staff is smiling.
Food and drink
Two restaurants, one for smokers and another for non-smokers, offer local and international cuisine. The main restaurant serves all three meals buffet-style. The non-smoking restaurant, serving a la carte, serves dinner in a more informal atmosphere. In addition, the hotel has a swimming pool and a beach bar, open until midnight, which also serves snacks (on the beach) and there is a snack bar near the restaurant for non-smokers. For lunch you can have Greek specialties a la carte, served between 12 AM and 4 PM. A bar situated near the reception, with traditional music in the background, completes the setting.
The Pegasos beach is nearly adjacent to the Calypso. The hotel benefits from the use of the vast sandy beach of the bay of Faliraki stretching as far as the eye can see, almost a mile distant. Some pebbles are scattered across this part of the bay but in general you can walk barefoot. The granite sand is dark brown and fine. Like its neighbouring hotels, wooden walkways are arranged along the beach, under the shade of sunshades. Remember that the deckchairs are rented, about ? 3 per half-day... And, from this point of view, all resorts operate in this manner. Customers can access the sailing club of the beach near the hotel also for extra payment, as it is entirely private and has no commercial agreement with the Pegasos Beach.
The Pegasos Beach is located between the Calypso Beach and the Blue Sea. It benefits from the sandy beach in 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 a private beach in Rhodes. In addition to Germans, Austrians and Italians frequent this facility as holiday-makers.

More than a half-hour's walk from the centre of Faliraki
The Calypso Beach offers many advantages for those who want to enjoy seaside activities in a hotel with all the comfort needed. One of the best hotels in the resort of Faliraki, if you are a fan of modern architecture.
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 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.
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 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.
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 Miramare is an upscale hotel with a good reputation in Rhodes, quite appropriate for holiday-makers seeking peace and relaxation in a very comfortable atmosphere. It is particularly suited for a honeymoon stay.
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...
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 Blue Bay hotel is set in lush, verdant surroundings a stone's throw from the beach. The green of nature and the blue of the sea offers a pleasant mix for holiday-makers who just want to laze around, or conversely, partake in the various activities on offer. Unfortunately, many of the latter are proposed in German, but then again they do provide the perfect opportunity to take up a foreign language!
