“Very special place”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

I have had the pleasure of staying here for the past week. The room with its private pool and awesome views is great. The hotel is made all the more special by its staff. Lianardis leads a team of happy, friendly and most helpful young people for whom nothing is too much and who genuinely wish to make ones stay memorable.
I will return and highly recommend a visit.

Had the pleasure of spending a week at this wonderful hotel. From arrival we were greeted in a friendly and professional manner. We were made to feel very welcome and immediately were offered complimentary beverages and snacks.
The suite with its own private pool and magnificent views is truly a delight. The suite is impeccably clean with great decor.
A team of super friendly and delightfully helpful staff that is led by manager Leonardis, who is the consanant professional !
We highly recommend and will certainly be returning.

The Elite Suites at Amathus Beach Hotel are absolutely fabulous; they are pricey and they are worth it. Both the rooms and the service at the hotel is absolutely top class.

The Elite Suites belong to and are located next to the bigger Amathus Beach Hotel, which is also a 5 star hotel (but not as nice). So guests have access to all the amenities of the bigger hotel, but also exclusive access to the Elite Suites part with its own reception, breakfast restaurants - and the most fabulous rooms.

ROOMS
The rooms look just like on the website, with a comfortable double bed, sofa corner, great bathroom with both a bathtub and a shower, and plenty of wardrobe space. And then of course there's the terrace and the private pool (for all suites on floors 1-5, but not on floor 6). The room also comes with a Nespresso machine and tea kettle that are always restocked, Bulgari bath products, natural sea sponges, a daily surprise gift like a bottle of sparkling wine or ouzo... There was no problem to get a baby cot and an extra chair on the terrace. Everything perfect! OK if I must mention something we did have a few miniature ants in our room, but I think that's normal since we left some fruit out and had the terrace door open.

THE DIFFERENT FLOORS
I think all rooms on all floors seem nice. The 1st (ground) and 2nd floor rooms are in one building, while the 3rd-6th floor rooms are in a second building behind the other one on the hillside. So the 3rd floor is just slightly higher up than the 2nd floor, but set further back from the sea and the road.
- The 1st/ ground floor rooms have small private gardens on the other side of their pools, but less sea view.
- The 2nd floor rooms are the most 'private' of all since there are no rooms above them and they are also far away from the tall main hotel building. Sea views (and sunsets) are great but there is some noise from the road.
- The 3rd floor rooms are on the bottom floor of the second building and feel a bit less private, since there is a walkway in front of them (between the two buildings).
- The 4th floor and 5th floors offer great views since they are higher up, but are located closer to the main Amathus Beach Hotel so people in the main building look down directly on their private pools. The 5th floor in addition has the 6th floor rooms just above their pools.

POOLS & BEACH
If you want to venture away from your private pool, there is plenty of choice:
- The Elite Suites Pool (exclusively for Elite Suites, kids allowed but only really shallow part is the stairs)
- Main pool at the Amathus Beach Hotel (large with shallow sections for kids)
- Adults only pool at the Amathus Beach Hotel
- Rooftop pool at the Amathus Beach Hotel (not as huge as the main pool but less crowded and with plenty of free deck chairs. There is also a 50cm deep separate pool for kids)
- The beach area, reached via a tunnel under the road. The beach is pebbly/rocky but the water is nice. Above the beach is a strip of grass where one side is exclusive to the Elite SUites and the other side is for all of the Amathus beach Hotel.

GYM & SPA
The gym is shared with the bigger Amathus Beach Hotel next door, and is pretty good for a hotel gym. Not quite the same 5 star experience as the Elite Suites themselves though (no towels, for example). The spa is nice and offers a lot of different treatments. It's not crowded at all and we managed to book a massage just half an hour ahead in peak season. Not totally sure how qualified the masseur was though.

RESTAURANTS
Breakfast at the Varkarola Taverna is very good, and it's not very crowded since it's only for the Elite Suites. Great service and very friendly. There's a large buffet and you can also order things like omelettes or pancakes from a menu (included). For lunch there's the pool bar by the main pool, the Varkarola Taverna, the Iliades restaurant on the 10th floor or the Pool Deck restaurant on the 11th floor of the Amathus Beach Hotel. We found the lunch options to be casual, friendly, and modestly priced. We did order a lot from room service since we were traveling with a small kid. The room service menu was OK but not exactly elaborate, the service was quick and friendly, everything was very reasonably priced, and the food was good (but didn't feel quite as 5 star as the hotel in general).

Room Tip: All rooms are nice. The 4th-6th floors have the best views, the 2nd floor has great sea views and ma...

We are a family of 2 Adults and 2 Teenage Girls from London and have just returned from an amazing 10 day trip to this fantastic setting. We had 2 top foor suites with interconnecting doors without the pool. As we did not have the pool suites we made full use of the dedicated Elite Suite Spa pool which was only used by 2-3 other families. In our opinion the Spa pool was actually better than the suite pool! We upgraded to Half Board which meant we could eat in the A La Carte Restuarant every day and were treated almost like VIPs by Leon and all the Restaurant staff. Our food was always well presented and the soft drinks were good value for money.
As Elite Suite guests we were able to order breakfast in our room at no extra cost and we most certainly took up this option as it was wonderful to eat our breakfast on the balcony overlooking the sea.
We treated ourselves to a number of Spa Treatments as the staff were so pleasant and welcoming. As Elite Suite Guests you receive a complimentary manicure and pedicure for members of your party and this was an extra special treat .
The Elite Suite Receptionists were very helpful and they recommended a number of places to visit. We booked 2 trips with Manos Travel which is a family run business and were able to experience Lindos and the Rhode Island Tour the way this is experienced by the Greeks. Do check out this travel company as they are much better value than the tours offered by your Tour companies.
We would describe this holiday as one of our best ever holidays and will certainly be booking again! Thank you to all the fantastic staff in reception, pool areas, restuarant, Spa

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor are quieter than the ones on the lower floors due to the main road traffic

We have just returned from a 10 day stay at the Elite Suites and all we can say is wow. We arrived at just after midnight and were greeted by a lovely friendly receptionist and offered a glass of champagne. She escorted us to our room, which looked just as it does on the hotel website. The room is extremely well equipped, light and spacious. As well as the large fruit platter and chilled sparkling wine in our room on arrival, we received extra treats nearly every day, including pastries, dried fruit/nuts and Turkish delight, along with little bottles of ouzo and rakki.

We stayed in a top floor suite without a private pool but, as the Suite guests are able to use the Spa pool, we made full use of this and, for the first half of our holiday, had the pool totally to ourselves. The beach area is very nice but our first two days were extremely windy so we gave up with the wind, avoided the beach and stayed by the Spa pool. As we had so much privacy there, we didn't use the beach any more. Many thanks to all the staff In the Spa who were always so friendly. Please try one of their treatments. They are wonderful.

The Elite Suites staff truly cannot do enough for you. They are just all so warm, welcoming and friendly. When we arrived for our first breakfast, we were greeted by Leonidas and Mishkoula, who provided the most wonderful service, which continued throughout the whole holiday. Leonidas runs an excellent team and is always there to make sure you are happy. We lunched most days in the Vakorola Restaurant, where Mishkoula always greeted us with her happy smile. Many thanks to her for being such a great waitress. Special thanks also to Stefanos, Signe, Maria, Lena, Katherina and all the other staff who gave such wonderful service in the Vakorola Restaurant in the evenings. We stayed on a half board basis and the food is just amazing. Special thanks to the Chef!!!

We went on a day trip to Symi and travelled out on the high speed catamarran from Rhodes. If you haven't been to Symi, we suggest you go as it so pretty. We also had a great day out on a small sailing boat which we arranged with Manos Tours. The Elite Suite receptionsists can give you the details.

The only downside to this wonderful hotel is its close proximity to the busy main road. As we were on a high floor, with a tremendous panoramic view of the sea, this did not cause us any problems but the lower floor suites with pools may have found this a nuisance.

We will definitely return again and cannot recommend the Elite Suites enough. If you stay there, you will want for nothing!

We had the most amazing Honeymoon staying in the Elite Suites. The staff were so helpful and they were all so friendly and polite.
On the first night we moved rooms because our room was noisy and they were so helpful and nothing was too much bother.
It was also my Husbands birthday during our stay and a huge personalised birthday cake and champagne arrived in our room which was lovely.
Thank you to all the team for a memorable Honeymoon. We will definitely be returning to the Elite Suites.

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.
