“Great family stay - affordable luxury”
Reviewed July 23, 2011

We stayed in one of the Elite Suites with private pool and garden. It was perfect for our 8 and 10 year old. They were able to jump into the pool when they wanted and play in the garden when they liked. One word of warning - the Elite suites (especially the ground floor ones with gardens are closest to the road). The road is very busy. It was one of things I was worried about before we arrived. However, I found that the sound of the water inthe pool when splashing around and the sound of the crickets helped to 'disguise' the sound of the traffic. I was surprised how used to it I became. Back in the UK we live on a very quiet road and so we are not used to hearing a great deal of traffic but we were comfortable with it here. It's a call you need to make before you book.
The quality of the suite was top notch. I travel a fair deal with business and ican say the standard of the Elite suites is definitely 5 star. The room was very modern and clean with some crazy blue lighting if you so desired. The bathroom was spacious with a great stand up shower cubicle. The private pool is 25 sq meters and 1.3 meters deep so large enough for children to jump in.
Breakfast in an Elite suite only restaurant which was great - with eggs and pancakes made to order as well the regular buffet expectations. We ate a few lunches and dinners in the Taverna by one of the pools and it was good value with some great views of the sea. We also found some restaurants nearby which are well worth trying. Olympias was very good - don't be put off by the pictures of the food. Le Gourmet nearby was also good - though expect to be patient as far as the service is concerned.
We found the main swimming pool to be rather 'standard' in that there was not a great deal to do - no slides or major waterfalls etc - hence why I was glad we booked a room with a private pool. The sea is very warm and can have sufficiently high waves to make it fun for the kids.
On the second night we ate in the buffet restaurant in the main building as we were quite tired. I can honestly say that it was a rather depressing experience - the food was mediocre (which was especially surprising as it was a Greek night) and as the restaurant is on the 10th floor there can be some great sea views but as the sun had not yet set the restaurant had to have the curtains closed to shelter us from the strong sun - most depressing.
Overall, we had a great holiday at the hotel but I should say that there is a strong feeling in the hotel that the Elite suites are completely separate from the rest of the hotel. The Elite suites are definitely 5 star. On our final day, as we had a late flight, we were given a late check out but in a room in the main hotel. Sat here in that room whilst I write this, I can say that the room is definitely not 5 star - probably 3+ at best. Small room - with basic furnishings and it is quite depressing.
I would definitely come back to Amathus but it would have to be the Elite suites again.

We stayed at the elite suites at the beginning of June for a week and were thoroughly impressed with the standard of accommodation and the friendliness and professionalism of staff working there. From the moment we arrived (with two tired children) we were greeted with canapés and champagne and soon felt relaxed with the surroundings. The a la carte restaurant varkarola served amazing meals. We don't usually stick to the same restaurant every evening but here we did! Special mention must be made to leonidas and stefanos who offered a top class service, always ready to help and also to Elena the receptionist who was wonderful. The elite suites were a cut above the rest of the hotel. Little treats were left in our room in the evening and a daily newspaper was provided, which was a nice touch. The breakfast room offered a big variety of food, was limited to guests of the suites making it more exclusive and offered great views. We also enjoyed the complimentary spa treatments!

We have just returned from staying at the Elite Suites for a week.
The Elite Suite rooms are wonderful - a couple of days before we went I phoned the hotel direct and asked if we could upgrade to a room with a private pool - which we did (did have to pay) These rooms are lovely and the pool and terrace is great for just getting away from it all.
As others have said each day you get a bottle of water, newspaper and a little treat. - though one day we didnt get this and though wasnt worried about the treat we did want the water - we asked at reception and with in an hour of us going back to room it was all there. - I had also said that a plate of treats we had had the day before and we hadnt eaten it all - had been left in our room all the day before and this particular day was then put outside the door and had been sitting there all day - which i personally did not feel was that great - but again it was cleared away as soon as I said.
We ate in the Varkola restaurant every evning and every lunch time and found the food to be very good - though I would imagine if you were there for 2 weeks it would get a bit repetative as the menu is not changed daily.
Even though the elite suites are seperate from the main Amathus Beach hotel - the main bar area (and only bar) to use of an evening is in the main hotel - we found this bar area to be very tired looking but also very hot of an evning and we found that it was too warm to sit comfortably in. so only had one drink and then went back to our room - and some nights didnt even bother to go over there.
Also the Varkola restaurant is outsde and also got very warm and a few ceiling fans would not go amiss in there.
I also think this restuarant should have a smoking and non smoking sections and we were sometimes sitting next to people smoking whilst we were trying to eat.
There is advertised that there is a private pool and beach area for elite suite users only - at times there were people in these areas who were not in the elite suites and nothing was done to stop them going in there.
You pay a lot extra to stay in these rooms so I feel this is something that should be enforced.
Overall we had a great time and the elite suites are lovely but I do feel that being part of the Amathus Beach hotel takes away something from the suites experience.
We was told that there is talk of a new bar area being built by the elite suites soley for the use of elite suite users - this I think would be a very good idea.
I would go back to this hotel again , but think perhaps only when the main hotel was more up to scratch and if another bar area was built.

Room Tip: Try to go in a room with private pool

We have just returned from a weeks amazing holiday experience. From the first minute you arrivie at your own exclusive reception you are greeted with a glass of champagne and a friendly welcome . We were then taken to our fantastic room ,with private pool and garden . The room had all the touches and more , with the best lighting you could get . That evening we went to the al carte restaurant , the food was of the highest standard , but most of all the manager and his staff were outstanding . Nothing was too much trouble to them , and they always had a pleasant smile for you . You are greeted with a warm personal greeting every time , this was just the same at breakfast time .
In our room daily we had complimentary water ,fruit , newspaper , along with local produce .
The rooms are cleaned twice daily with clean bath and beach towels .
Down on the beach there is a reserved area for the suite guests , with hammock , sun beds and comfortable seating .
We could go on all day , but simply we have been in many 5 star hotels and cruises and none of them have come close .
The main feature is the total commitment by all the staff .
You are treat as a true VIP and come home feeling totally happy and relaxed and wanting to return back to heaven .

We stayed at Amathus Elite Suite for the second time ; it is always a great pleasure, it's fantastic, accommodations, services, food everything is perfect.
Totally new large cleanness room perfectly equipped, with amazing swimming pool, nice terrace with sea view ! Newspapers, champagne, daily gifts and attentions… we are always impressed by this hotel ! The wide bed is a dream ; we slept as in the clouds. People are so kind, they looked after us very well and answered our every wish ! The SPA is pure place of luxury ; very impressive ! Treatments and massages are more exceptional than you may expect in such hotel.
We also recommend the private cosy restaurant Varkarola with every evening special menu, atmosphere and food are excellent.
At 10 min. of the old Rhodos city centre, you get great value for your money… even much more. Thanks a lot to everyone !

My partner and I are just back from a week's holiday at the Elite Suites and we cannot fault the suites or the staff at all. In a word our holiday was perfect.
We booked with Soverign and would book with them again. The private transfer was waiting on us on arrival and we were checked into our suite very efficiently without hassle, all the added extras were included with no need to chase them up . We booked the garden suite on the ground floor.
The room was very large and comfortable. HUGE bed!! All the mod-cons you would expect, LCD TV, coffee/tea, mini bar etc. The outside space blew us away...decking and private pool, over a bridge and into the garden beyond. We cracked open the bottle of champagne waiting chilled in our room...LUXURY!!!
Dining in the evening on Half Board was at the restaurant in the suites, a la carte. A good choice on the menu and the food was high quality, great service and in a lovely atmosphere. Breakfast was served inside this restaurant and again, good choice, good service. You could also have a continental breakfast served in your room (at no extra charge) and I would recommend doing this too.
What makes this hotel stand out and a cut above the rest is the little touches. Everyday we were left a little present, a bottle of olive oil, pastries etc..Also, a bottle of cold water was in the room everyday with a newspaper. The staff are trained to a high level and nothing is a problem for them. There were 2 managers in the suites and they go out of their way to welcome you.
I booked a spa treatment at took the complimentary manicure and pedicure. The spa is excellent and well priced. Lovely surroundings and you can use the hammam, sauna and jacuzzi free of charge too.
We were a bit concerned of the proximity of the main road to our suite, but I can honestly say this did not take away from the hotel or spoil our holiday in any way. The only other point I could make (and I really am struggling to to find fault) would be that I am surprised the hotel is not an 'adults only' given the exclusivity it wants to portray.
If you book these suites you will not be disappointed and we will return. BOOK IT!!!

Room Tip: Garden Room is well worth the extra money

We have just returned from a two week stay in the Amathus Beach Elite Suites. We were allocated a Suite with it's own private pool on the upper tier. On arrival at the Elite Suite reception we were greeted by a very efficient and friendly receptionist who offered us a glass of champagne while we got checked in. We were then shown to our room by one of the hotel guest liason team. Before she left our luggage had been brought to the room by the porter. In the room we had a bottle of sparkling wine and a lovely bowl of fresh fruit. The rooms are large and very spacious with an extra large bed and sofas, Widescreen TV & Mini Bar. When you opened the patio doors you were met with the most magnificent view over the sea to the Turkish coast beyond. A wooden decking with two sun loungers and table with two chairs. Everything in the Elite Suites was first class. Lights and curtains operated from switches at the side of the bed. Beautiful bathroom with a wet room style shower and a bath. Excellentl choice of toiletries. The room was serviced twice daily with fresh towels and pool towels. Every day we had special treats delivered to our room. Dried fruit and nuts, cakes, small bottles of oozo and other wonderful goodies. A daily newspaper was delivered. A nice touch was a chocolate left on your pillow every evening with a little card saying "Sweet Dreams". The Varkola Restaurant is dedicated to the Elite Suites for Breakfast. Choice was tremendous. Cereals, Dried Fruit, Nuts and Seeds, Fresh Fruit, Yoghurts, Cooked breakfastr foods, Cold Ham and Cheeses, Bread, Croissants, Cakes & Pastries then of course you could order freshly prepared scrambled, poached or fried eggs. The staff in the restaurant were very friendly and could not do enough to make your stay memorable. They are a wonderful team. We had a half board option and were able to use the Varkola Restaurant for evening meals. The food was 5 Star. The menu choice was very extensive and everything we ordered was cooked to perfection. This was our third visit to the Amathus Beach Hotel but our first to an Elite Suite. I would highly recommend the Elite Suites to all. Hope to back soon for another visit.
