“quite expensive, but pretty much worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

The room rate was indeed pretty high (550 euros per night), but overall i would say it just about gets away with it. The accommodation itself was very good, and everything was both maintained and cleaned very well.
There is clearly a wide variety of views available from the rooms - i think there are maybe 5 rows, going up from road level, so the lower the level the less likely you are to see the sea. We were about mid way, and the end of our pool was next to a path - it didnt really bother us at all. The view was perfectly good, and there was a row of bushes that gave us some privacy - far more than we would have had in the normal pool, but less than if we were in a private villa. Staff did come and go when we were there and did seem to think that a knock on the door was more something they did before walking straight in than something they did before waiting to see if anyone answered - however, they were without fail friendly and helpful and we didnt mind too much.
The bathroom was a little oddly designed - the main door was a clear glass one, with limited frosting, which, when combined with the way the staff did walk in could have caused a little embarrassment - luckily for us it didnt during our stay, but it did seem like things there could have been better thought out. The rest of the bathroom, though, was very nice, with a good sized shower.
The private pool was actually larger than we expected, and was very well maintained and always clean.
Drinks and food were generally of a good standard, but very very expensive - we had breakfast included, and also paid an extra 15 euros per day after we checked in to get pretty much all inclusive drinks. It was a little complicated working out what we were allowed, as the rules only allowed us to have certain drinks, at certain bars, at different times, but once we did, we managed fairly well. We never ate at the restaurant - it looked very nice, but, as another review has already mentioned, there was a dress code for men of trousers, and, the way we read it, no open toe-d shoes for either sex. Given it was very warm, we could have coped with, say, smart shorts, but no one in our group especially wanted to put on trousers or have overly warm feet. If that wasnt in place, we would have gone there happily.
Overall, I would say it was a very good hotel that we would happily return to, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would happily recommend it to anyone, especially if you can get it for less than around 500 euros per day.

Room Tip: ask for a higher level room if you want a good view.

I spent a week at the Amathus Elite Suites, together with my wife and two teenage boys.
The friendly face behind the reception desk and the glass of champagne upon arrival made us feel welcome and at home immediately.

We arrived too early and unfortunately our rooms were not ready yet. Although this wasn’t their fault, the staff worked very hard to clean the rooms as fast as possible. In the mean time we had lunch at the Varkarola restaurant. Shortly after lunch our suites were ready. Very clean and spacious rooms, with a wonderful private pool and a great view.

The food (lunch and dinner) at the Varkarola restaurant was ecellent. A menu with a lot of variation and very affordable. We especially enjoyed the barbecue evening and the lobster evening with cabaret show.

The Varkarola breakfast was simply perfect. A beautiful buffet with plenty of choice and on top of that we could order à la carte extras (fried eggs, French toast, waffles, ...) without extra charge. Definitely the best breakfast buffet I have ever seen!

Complimentary snacks, drinks and desserts were available in the lobby throughout the day and each day housekeeping brought little extras to our rooms (a small bottle of ouzo, candy, ...).

Housekeeping was very efficient. Although they didn’t need a lot of time to clean the room, it was always very well done.

The whole team did an excellent job and everyone was friendly and helpful, but we will especially remember the friendliness and professionalism of Leonidas, Mouchova and Signe.

Tip: There is a huge difference between the Elite Suites and the main building of the adjoining hotel (Amathus Beach Hotel). The shop in the main building is handy, but for the rest it does not add any value to your stay. Thus, stay at the suites area and Varkarola as much as possible for the best holiday experience.

Amathus is very well situated, not far from the airport and not too far from Rhodes town. There is a road between the hotel and the beach, but you can reach the beach easily through a tunnel.

This was one of our best and most relaxing summer holidays ever and we would love to stay here again sometime soon.

Last month I spent 10 days with my boyfriend in the Hotel! Our stay was amazing we could not ask for more. Our room was more that we could expect. That was clean and large and with the perfect view of the Sea!
The food was delicious, the staff is friendly and always smile. The service was more than 5 star!!!!!!
The Hotel is located in a very central place, close to the city center. Their beach is well organised and nice.
We are really very very satisfied. I would deffenetly recommend this Hotel and we are sure that we will come back next year. I am already looking forward a lot!
Thank you for the staff for making us an unforgettable holiday.

We've been so disappointed by this hotel that I guess I will just list the main reasons why according to us, this hotel does not deserve its fifth star and why they should not charge their rooms as they do.

- Our room was not ready upon arrival and we had to wait for 1hour... Got the "You've got a big room'' excuse... Sorry, but when you pay 589euros/night for a room, you don't have any excuses.

- Bed linen and couch stained upon arrival ... Do I really need to add anything further?

-The view: if you got charmed over ''the Ocean view'' title, forget about it now. It should rather be called ''The road view''. You can see people from the road/pavement and of course they can see you as well! That was the biggest disappointment as we really felt like we could not enjoy our private pool as much as we should have.

-Talking about seeing other people ... There is a serious lack of privacy in this hotel. Maintenance people (garden/pool staff...) will be likely to walk by your pool at anytime without asking you if it is ok (probably because it is not ok anyway).

-Just so you know, there is a dress code (trousers and shoes) for men to go to the restaurant during evenings.

- Finally, on a way less serious record (but I think you guys should know), if you ask for a Coke, you'll get Pepsi! I know...

Ultimately, the cost of the room is really not worth the money and we really thought we didn't get what we paid for. I think we would share people's enthusiasm over that place only was a lot cheaper!

Dear Friend,

Please accept my apologies for failing to meet your expectations. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback as this is the only way we can improve. We have discussed thoroughly our late check out policy becuase with only 37 rooms and many requests for late check out inevitably we would have a problem with a guest checking in late. We will manage this procedure closely to avoid similar inconvinience in the future. Regarding the stained linen, as you wrote, you don't need to add anything further. It goes without say that it is unacceptable and it shouldn't have happened.

Thank you once again for your constructive comments and it is our hope that we may be able to regain your trust in order to welcome you back to the Elite Suites in the very near future.

Kind regards

We visited the hotel with my sister at the end of June. I have to say that it was my best vacation ever. The rooms are clean, large, modern and well equipped, not to mention the private pool......the facilities of the hotel are very comfortable, the food in the restaurant is very delicious and you have a wide choice of dishes. The beach is suitable with a good service, and the idea of baking some Greek sweets next to the sea is fantastic. Also I had a massage at the beach with
Lina, and she is very professional and very good. It was a real relaxation week for me. I would like to thank the whole staff of the hotel, because everybody is professional always with a smile on their face and nothing is too much trouble. They really made our holiday!
The only bad part was that it passed very very fast. If you visit this hotel book at least 2 weeks!!!!!
We will be back for sure..

The most relaxing vacation we ever had. The Elite Suites gave us the opportunity to have an excellent time in Rodhes. The private breakfast was absolutely fantastic. The room was amazing , we stayed in a suite with private swimming pool. We had the opportunity to visit the spa and the black swimming pool, both were amazing. The staff were very very helpfull. Everything was perfect. Thank you very much!!
