“Excellent hotel voor Rhodos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Excellent hotel, especially the suites with the private pools are great for private relaxation and great fun for the children. Service in the restaurant Varkarola was great, food very good and diverse. Excellent hospitality from Filip, Leon, Stefanos and all the other people in the Elite Suites. The spa is excellent too, with good people and kind service. Hotel is quite close to the city, making it easy to have short trops by taxi to the old town, which is fantastic.

Do keep in mind: the Amathus itself is a bit old fashioned, we avoided this, also the resto on the 10th floor is far below the Varkarola level, so we only did this once...Also avoid the suites with private garden: very noisy next to the road. We changed after 1 night, and the higher level suites are perfect, with a great sight on top!

Room Tip: Go for the higher level suites with private pool, not the garden ones.

We have just returned from a 1 week stay in the Elite Suites, nothing here is too much trouble or any bother, just ask and if they can do it they will. All of the staff that we dealt with were friendly and efficient and for many this is not their first season at the Amathus. The Managers were always to be seen, greeting guests and ensuring that everything was to your liking, they set very high standards for their staff to aspire to. Having read previous reviews I emailed ahead to request a higher room, when we arrived this was unavailable however the next day we were shown to a higher room and changed over with no problem at all. The accommodation is exactly as you see in the photographs, modern and very clean with a spotless pool. We stayed half board and ate dinner mainly in Varkorola Taverna, the food was well presented and the staff were happy to recommend wine. Room service, although more limited, was delivered promptly and the Varkorola pool bar service was good even extending down to the beach if you chose to have drinks there. WiFi is excellent, free, quick and able to access anywhere in the hotel or grounds. Rhodes town is a short taxi ride for 8-10 Euros or the bus stops outside the hotel and you are less than half hour from the airport. If you are looking for a week in the sun in a decent hotel with excellent service the Amathus Elite Suites is a great choice.

Room Tip: Our room (144) was on the 2nd floor in the middle, we had a great view and it was quieter as we were...

We recently returned from a two week stay at these superb suites with private infinity pool. This was our fifth visit since they first opened and still they maintain their 5 star reputatioin. We travel widely but always enjoy returning to our Rodian home each year. Other reviewers have covered the excellent service standards which make the Elite Suites so special. We want to mention the important Chef Adonis and his team who work so hard behind the scenes to provide an excellent menu selection in the Varkarola and especially on the theme nights - a big thank you.

Leonidas, Stefanos, Moschoula, Emy, Signe and Maria, our gratitude for your impeccable service and faultless attention to our requests. You are all a credit to the Amathus Beach Elite Suites.

We are fortunate to be able to have a number of holidays a year they are all five star including cruising but for the past five years we have always included a 10 day holiday at the Elite Suites, Why? Simply we have found a hotel that exceeds our expectations the friendly competent staff go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect, the rooms are beautifully furnished and the private pool is just right to catch the end of the day sun, we dine in the friendly but intimate Varkarola restaurant where the food is excellent and the staff outstanding. We have recently returned after yet another wonderful holiday at the Elite Suites, looking forward to our next visit.

Just come back from staying a week at the Elite Suites feeling very relaxed and refreshed.

We stayed in a room next to the presidential suite and I have to say the view was stunning with our very own Infinity pool looking directly out onto the sea, trust me you won't tire of it. The pool does initially feel a bit cold but after a couple of days you get used to it and it becomes a refreshing way to cool down after catching the rays of the sun.

I am so glad we stayed on this side of the island and didn't opt for Lindos as you benefit from a coastal breezes which without could make it a bit too hot for some people.

The food is very good at the a la carte restaurant and is made even more special by the two brothers running it and their team, all of which make you feel very special.

The spa is excellent and again the staff here were extremely friendly and helpful.

I normally enjoy being active and although it said on the site that a tennis court was available I decided not to take my racquet as I was using the week to recharge my batteries. If you do go and want to use the court, the court itself is fine but take your own balls and racquet as you will be disappointed with those provided if you play regularly.

My only grump is that in the room information it says you can book a tennis lesson which I thought despite my initial thoughts I would take advantage of. I booked my lesson on the first full day of being there for the following day at 6 pm. Unfortunately nobody turned up and when I went back to reception they tried to contact the coach and despite my best efforts to offer the next four days before going home the coach wasn't very accomodating and only offered a time in the middle of the afternoon several days later when it's far too hot to play. Reading between the lines my guess is not many people ask to do this and the coach looks after another hotel and they couldn't really be bothered to come and do the one lesson, which is fine but don't offer the service.

Anyway apart from that everything else was excellent!!! and let me balance this with another experience. On the final day before leaving we went into the restaurant to get lunch and thought we would have to pay as we were half board. The eldest brother running the restaurant said let me check as if you don't utilise one of your meals then this can be carried over. We had been into Rhodes for a few meals and hadn't eaten at the hotel one evening during the week of our stay. He came back from checking at reception and advised us that we could have lunch at no extra cost which was above and beyond what I had anticipated.

Oh and one final thing although the hotel food is excellent take a trip into Rhodes and visit Tamam absolutely fabulous traditional Greek food - we went there three times in our weeks stay!!

Dear Friend,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience from your recent stay with us on TripAdvisor. I am glad we could create a relaxing environment during your holiday. It is always a pleasure to receive positive comments but equally important your constructive criticism. We took action on your feedback regarding the tennis instructor and we now work with a second tennis instructor in order to offer this service to our guests whenever is requested. Leonidas has been acknowledged for delivering beyond your expectations service and thank you for mentioning that.

Once again thank you for your feedback and look forward to welcome you back.

Recently returned from our second visit to the Elite Suites and I can honestly say this is THE BEST hotel we have ever stayed in! The customer service is beyond compare, nothing is too much trouble for the staff who go to great lengths to ensure your holiday is perfect. Last year we were on the 5th floor and I have to say I was a little apprehensive when told we had been allocated a suite on the 2nd floor which as previous reviewers had commented on is nearer the busy road and therefore noisier than the suites higher up. To be honest the traffic noise didn't bother us at all and it is quite nice being nearer the sea and you still get lovely sea views. In fact we are hoping to return again next year and will be requesting a room on the 2nd level again.
Unfortunately I was unwell for most of the time I was away so we did tend to spend most of the time just relaxing by the pool. The meals in the Varkarola restaurant were even better than I remember from last year. My son is still talking about the amazing Lobster night. A big thank you must go to Leo for the warm welcome he gave my son and his girlfriend, for arranging 'vitamin smoothies' for me at breakfast to make me feel a little better, and for arranging a late check out room in the main hotel for us on our last day, as I said the staff really cannot do enough for you.

The thing that sets this hotel apart from others is the staff and we must say a big thank you to all the staff who work so hard in the Elite Suites you all do an amazing job but special thanks must go to Leo, Stefanos, Signe and the ever cheerful Moschoula,sorry I was not able to thank you personally but it was you day off when we left. My apologies if I have misspelt any of your names.

Hope to catch up with you all again next year. Best wishes to you all Sue and Ian from Milton Keynes.

Room Tip: All suites are amazing , rooms on higher floors are quieter.
