“Great hotel - loved being all inclusive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2011

We stayed here with our family in July/August. The hotel room was quite large, modern and clean. It was just a shame we faced the road, which was a little noisy. The beds are very firm too but the cleaners leave extra blankets if you need them. The hotel is on the beach (pebbly) - there are free loungers and free pedalos to use (it was just too hot there for us). We stayed around the pool - be warned though, even though there are lots of loungers, you have to get there early as it seemed that guests from a sister hotel was allowed to share the facilities. The food and drink at the hotel are excellent - unbelievable choice and very good quality. The main restaurant does themed evenings - fantastic. The staff here are excellent - helpful, kind and friendly. You are entitled to one meal in the formal restaurant. My advice is don't bother - the food, service and staff were a total disappointment compared to the alternatives in the rest of the hotel. There is evening entertainment, including a kids disco. In terms of facilities, there are a couple of swimming pools with slides, a kids club, a small gym, pool bar, some shops, a snack bar, a good park, tennis courts - basically everything you could need on holiday. We did do a couple of days out - to Rhodes Old Town and the water park - both good. Overall, we all really enjoyed it but a week at one place was long enough for us.

I stayed here with my girlfriend for a week some years ago.
A good hotel, ideal for a resting vacation.

I'm gonna sound like a salesman for the Hotel Calypso (Beach) with this review, but I don't care!

This hotel is superb.

It's location is superb, facilities are superb including the best selection of AI food I've encountered. Service at the establishment is also top notch and it really is hard to fault it.

And a big thumbs up to the waiting and bar staff ; these guys work their wee cotton socks off and are a credit to their trade. Special mention to 'wee' George who met us every morning at breakfast with the cheeriest of smiles and set up the day ahead nicely.

If there is one niggle then that would be a small one relating to the Animation team's night time efforts at entertainment ; being charitable, I think this is work in progress.

I've read other reviews too about the hotel being predominantly non UK is clientele - this is indeed true, but no big deal. It's a pleasure meeting other cultures and what going on holiday is all about.

Last year when we stayed at the Sun Palace, my family thought that place couldn't be beaten. We were wrong.

Recommend, highly.

I visit calypso hotel with my friends in July. This hotel is terrible. the food was Unflavored and we always ate the same food. The meat was uncooked and they have not food without gluten. The servis was awful too. The room was dirty and there was not clean towels in the bathroom. The stuff was unhelpfull and nervous. We NEVER came back in this hotel.

Fantastic Hotel in beautiful surroundings between Rhodes Town & Faliraki. Great mix of nationalities & not all German as some previous reviews state. Got on really well with some Czech & Dutch couples & hotel was very welcoming. Food excellent & great variety including outdoor barbecue.

Swimming pools also excellent & beach towels given on a regular basis by hotel. Entertainment team also a mix of nationalities including English, Australian, Tunisian, French & Italian and all really friendly. Kids Play Park (Incl Climbing Frame, etc & Swimming Pool with Mini Boats slides also catered for youngsters... Only downside if there was one was the majority of sunbeds being taken by 7:30 am, however there are plenty to go round....

Very Recommended!!!!

I have stayed at this hotel 18 times in 12 years and see the same people so it must be good . lovely beach small fish in the sea to play with, very restful (IF YOU WANT) or you can take part in games all day , live shows in the evenings, food very good and very varied with some nights being themed
eg fish, Italian and greek (nomal food also on these nights)
JUNE OR SEPTEMBER ARE BEST
ps Christos the waiter is my man when there
