We have just returned from a brill holiday at the Rhodos Royal in Kalithea. We were a bit dubious after reading some reports but it turned out better than expected. We got a family room (not the best view as it was facing the road and car park)we asked for a move and got one straight away and then changed our minds.Rooms cleaned every day, towels changed when you wanted them to be. Food was great - couldn't fault it. Suckling pig and lamb on Sundays was my favourite. Bacon and eggs at breakfast along with everything else you could think of. Beer pumps around the pool, beach bar and the hotel bar where you can pour your own - plus help yourself to coke,fanta etc and ice creams.
The pool was great and never missed out on getting a sun bed no matter what time we got up. Didn't go on the beach so can't comment.
Entertainment didn't really suit, plus it was in the middle of the large beautiful gardens but as I get bit by the mozzies after dark I kept away.
All the staff at this hotel were fantastic - from reception to the bars and restaurant. Our faves where Maria in the restaurant and Minoli on the bar. The others were brill too but can't remeber their names.
Although the hotel is about 90% germans, dutch, french and italians most of them were very friendlty. All in all a good holiday and will be going back.

We had been in the hotel 3-4 days before we saw any english guests whatsoever.The whole fortnight we only saw 6 and my husband and I.

The food was very nice but very repetative, puddings especially.Crepes on the beach in the afternoon are a treat.

The entertainment was all in another language as this hotel mainly caters for the German visitors.

We stayed for two weeks in this time we had greek food offered to us twice, both times the same moussaka, apart From the greek salad which was available all the time, so was the spag bol.

The hotel could do with being referbished as the carpets are stained and threadbear in places,and the paintwork could do with a refresh.

The cleanliness of the hotel was fair not what I would expect for a 4* hotel. (We have been the hotel chain before in Halkidiki and had a lovely time) the staff however were happy and willing to please, which kinda made up for it!!

First let me say that although the address says Faliraki it is actually in Kalithea, 2km further north and as such is in a quiet location. It's also about 11km from Rhodes Town it's self, served well by local bus about every 20mins or so.

We were there (2003) on B/B basis as we like to eat out in local tavernas. The breakfast was a buffet style meal and was out of this world. They catered for just about every nationatily and you could sample it all if you could eat it. Quality of the food was second to none.

Our rooms were massive. Though this was partly due to our luck in being put into a two room family suite and there were just there two of us. We did not have a seaview and I think that this is a must at this hotel, as the views over the gardens down to the sea are beautiful.We also had a bottle of wine and basket of fruit on arrival. The room had it's own big bathroom with bath and shower, wash hasd basin, WC and Bidet. Towels were changed as requested as were the beach towels that were also supplied.

Another nice little touch was the cloth carrier bag supplied to each room for you to keep.

All soap, shower gels were supplied and replaced as needed.

There is A/C and a fridge ( not a mini-bar)in each room as well. The balconys could have been a little bigger though.
The bars in the hotel tend to be a bit pricy, but then, that's the same with most hotels.

There are three outdoor pools and one indoor and their own section of beach all with sunbeds and umbrellas. The beach is beautifully clean and sandy, very safe for kiddies.
It's quite expensive to come to this hotel, but you get what you pay for and this hotel did that.

My all in all coment for here is brilliant, in fact we have booked to come back here in 2005.

One other point worthy of mention is that the Grecotel Group have a "Privilege Club". The more you stop at their hotels the more privileges you get, eg; fruit and wine in your room, choice of room and even up to complimentary private a la carte dinners
