“Great staff ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

I'm not going to repeat what many have written, this is. Very nice hotel with fantastic staff but there are issues.

The food is of a fair standard but repetitive I.e. fish,pork, veal etc most evenings.. Chips, pasta, gets tedious after 3 - 4 days.

The large pool bar has food available all day inc late brekky, nice atmosphere but... I think they only have 1 cd ... I now know all the words to adele's 'never mind' and James blunts 'beautiful'

We spent most evenings in the lobby bar where we were looks after by the lovely Joanna ... 'give me hope'. She works like a Trojan without complaint and nothing is too much trouble, what an asset to this organisation. Other staff worthy of a mention are the concierge Ageta and restaurant maitre d Fotina.

As others have said, we too were asked to be quiet despite the fact that we were merely talking.. As there are no rooms nearby I can only assume hat the owner was the complainant... Sadly, this will be the only reason we won't return... We will prefer to spend our hard earned savings somewhere where the 'grown ups' don't tel us off.... We are both in our 50's not teenagers.

An enjoyable stay which would,have been excellent without being told off !

We have just returned from a lovely relaxing week at the Kresten Royal. The hotel was fabulous!! The food was cooked beautifully and there was plenty of choice. The hotel amenities, rooms and gardens are spotlessly clean, the staff are very polite and nothing is too much trouble. There has been a lot of thought in the way the way the complex has been set out and all of the rooms seem to have a sea view.

The hotel is located between Faliraki and Rhodes Town, having done the Faliraki scene in our youth we decided to take a trip into Rhodes Town which was 11 euros in a taxi and well worth the visit.

I can't stress how lovely the hotel was, if I had to be picky I would ask that they change the CD at the pool which seemed to be on loop all day every day for the whole week.

In short I would definately recommend and we will probably return in the future.

I can not express in words what a wonderful time we had! We planned a 60th birthday surprise for my father and it was amazing! We were 3 couples (my parents, me and my sister and our spouses) and a baby and everyone's needs were met!
I had a lot of questions and sent many mails and each and every one was answered promptly and very thoroughly. They were very kind, helped arrange everything, gave us all of the information and help we could need.
The rooms are beautiful and big, the view amazing, the pools lovely (there are many pools!), the food excellent (also - many options!! and all the time :)), a great bar, truly I only have positive things to say!
We had a magnificent experience and I am sure we will be returning to this wonderful resort!
I highly recommend this resort also for wonderful family experience and for a great couple getaway....

Just spent a week at the Kresten Royal Villas and Spa and had a wonderful time. Hotel was very clean and our room was spacious - air conditioning was very welcome. All the staff were very friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble for them. The food in all three restaurants was of a very high standard - something for everyone. Poolside was very good - no towels reserving sun loungers and never had a problem finding a vacant one at any time of day. View from our room was across to Rhodes Town with Turkish coast in the distance. If holidaying on Rhodes again we would definitely look at returning to this hotel. Used the bus to get us to Rhodes Town - goes every half hour from the main road and only cost 2 euros 20 cents each. Fantastic!!

Honey moon! - My wife and I stayed in the hotel for 4 amazing nights, from Sunday till Thursday (10-14/6). We simply can't describe how much it was perfect and speechless!
We planed to return at this September back!! Can't wait and already missing a lot!
Everythinggggg was the best, so relaxing and convenient.
1. Service - was delightful, the service man took us and our suitcase to our room, show and explained all about the room. The reception was so so kind and helpful.
2. Rooms - we stayed at room 204 with a private pool, and astonishing sea view. The room was very big, and very clean each day. Imagine a view of pool, sea and grass and so quiet & relaxing.
Anyway each room at the hotel have a great location, wonderful sea view, Jacuzzi bath, flat TVs.
3. Food - very delicious and variety. We took the all inclusive deal and each meal was enjoying with great desserts and fruits. when we entre there is someone that took us to our table and than in a seconds a waiter come and ask what we want to drink, so kind and such a good feeling.
at one night i had the desire for vegetarian spaghetti, the dining manger notes it and made an order to the kitchen to cook me special, it can not be better service than this.
at the bars the bartenders was so smiling and friendly. And the atmosphere was magnificent.
4. The hotel - best location around Rhodes. On a high landscape at amazing strap of sea. Only 5-7 minutes at taxi to the old/new city. So beautiful and planed at it bests! A speechless view from each spot. There are 4 bars around the hotel. 2 giant pools. And for those who stayed at the lowest rooms - the second pool is just near and even can take a breakfast/launch at the pool restaurant instead at the dining room. at every night there was music at the lobby by a piano or saxophone musician. How relaxing and pleasant!!!

"Kresten Royal" - thanks a lot to U all for best honey-moon and best vacation we could only imagine. We are defiantly will come again!!

Wish U all the best,
Ortal & Yosef Levi..

We left just today the Hotel after staying there for 4 nights. Its the second consecutive year we chose the Kresten Royal for our "relaxing vacations" and plan to do it every year.
Staff, rooms, facilities, services are excelent. The whole complex is beautiful and we are run of words to tell people what a great place the Kresten Royal is.
