This small hotel offers up a wide choice of rooms, bungalows and suites. It overlooks Ixia’s bay, and is just a 5-minute walk from shops and bars. You’re just a 10-minute drive from Rhodes Town.

We stopped at the Amathus at the start of May and for some reason we got upgraded to a bungalow by the top swimming pool. We booked the all inclusive for a week and was amazed by the food and drink. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Great facility's and an amazing reception area. I would highly recommend this hotel five stars. The only negative is the spa is starting to look like it needs a refurb and lack of entertainment of a night time. Steve & Nadine Birmingham More
Nice hotel, let down in most areas
Me and my partner stayed at amathus from the 6th of may to 13th, after looking online at the reviews we expected the hotel to be wonderful, but we where soon let down as soon as we walked through the door. As a couple who haven't been on holiday together previously our bar for excellence was pretty low and we both felt the hotel lacked in a lot of areas. When we arrived we where greeted by the two gentlemen by the front doors, who offered to take our bags and where very pleasant whilst we check in. We where then approached by Philip the guest relations manager, who offered to take us round once we had completed a few documents. Philip didn't show us around the entire complex, and we soon realised it is a big place, so we didn't expect him to show us everything. We booked for a B&B and Philip mentioned that there was an offer for â¬15 a day per person for unlimited drinks, the total was for â¬210 and we agreed. (Of which we now realise we have paid for an extra day that isn't going to Be used as we checked out early) When we got back to the reception none of the reception staff had even spoken to us nor said hello or even good morning, Philip then took the money from us and we waited another 20 mins before we where even checked in and given a room key and the receipt for the extra bundle. We had to approach the receptionist (and they looked very confused as to why we where still there) and ask for a receipt (as â¬210 is a lot of money) of which they didn't know where the money went, and they had to speak amongst each other to figure it out. We then had to ask for the room key as we still where not given one. The receptionists where a massive let down for us, as they didn't make us feel welcome at all, our first interaction with them really lacked a personal touch. We have never been to Rhodes before and they must of made the assumption that we had as none of them asked us "would you like a map" " do you know how to get around" etc, we where left in the dark whilst they stood in a circle behind the desk and had a chit chat, although we've done our research it would have been nice for them to point out where some of the most visited places are and ways to get around. They lacked in having a general conversation and didn't really seem interested in how we were or how we felt our stay was going (more on that note later). When we arrived in our room, it was a little on the small side, but the cleanliness was excellent, the room was made up completely and had really been cleaned by the maids (thank you). Yes the room is dated but the cleanliness is more important. We where not shown around to our room, and we had to figure out where to get a safe key from and for nearly two nights in a row our money was not in a safe. no one at reception mentioned it to us, and again this might be something that's obvious to people who have been away before but neither of us have, so we felt very worried about leaving our money until we asked reception. The AC fan is a little on the noisy side, but again nothing to really complain about it. One of our glasses had a massive crack in it before we even put any liquid into it and it was not removed from the room the entire stay. Our views from the room where beautiful and really cannot complain about that. We stayed our first couple of days around the pool during the day, and the pool service staff are amazing!! I can't remember their names but the two sisters who work on the main pool bar are incredible, they quickly remembered our room number and our favourite drinks, both very sweet, there where a couple of Staff who where very rude and didn't say hello when we approached the bar (seems to be the older staff members who lack in customer service) the pool was lovely cannot complain about all three, all excellent pools sun loungers very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and had a massive variety of food. The hostesses that where there are brilliant and really added personal touches to getting to know us! All four girls are amazing at the front!! The same for dinner, we paid extra and the food and service was brilliant! The evening bar got a bit cramped upstairs but the drinks and the head barman were also very good. We felt the ladies who served us (waitresses for table service) where very slow and we where not aware that there was an eleven o'clock limit for us, we ordered drinks from a girl with red hair at around twenty to 11 and we didn't hear anything back from her and she vanished, when we went to the bar they had prepared a receipt for us but had not prepared the drinks and the bar man said we cannot have a drink now as it was passed eleven o'clock, so this was extremely annoying. We then wanted to hire some bikes to go around the town with and the receptionist again where extremely rude, and didn't mention anything of safe journey of have fun or anything, it's the little things that count.We some what felt because we are a young couple they didn't have a lot of respect for us as we saw them laughing and having from with other English couples. We also had to ask about taxis and one receptionist who was extremely rude said "well you need to call a taxi number, but if you haven't got an abroad phone I can't help" and walked off, rather then giving us a taxi number or even some how helping us she refrained from doing all of this and giving us a problem rather then a solution. We had to find out a lot for ourselves, we didn't know that every night there was entertainment, we didn't know there was aqua arobics or anything else that goes on. The hotel maintenance is top notch and props to the gentlemen who look after it as they really take care of the place. We then booked a couples massage and that was perfect, the spa staff where incredible and we both had an excellent massage and really felt relaxed. The facilities are beautiful and I'd highly recommend it, the massages are a little on the pricey side but definitely worth it. We have just check out of the hotel, and not a single person has thanked us for staying with them or even asked us how we felt our stay was, it is incredibly arrogant that they think they've done amazing because they have five stars. In our option the five stars are wrong as there is no customer service. I definitely will not be coming back here. I cannot explain enough how angry I am at the reception staff who didn't care about us at all, or even made us feel comfortable. None of them got to know us or even tried to show that they want to help us out, we asked about the valley of the butterflies and where advised that it's not a good time, we then said is there anything else and they all shock their heads and some of Them walked off, very disgusting for a hotel that holds a five star rating. Not worth the price and five stars is a lie, it's five stars for the elite suites not for The amathus hotel. We wanted our money back of which we paid extra for the day as we have not used it and Philip didn't even feel like telling us that when he mentioned about the bundle must be commission based for him. So thank you for the stay, not worth it in my opinion and we are very disgusted. Regards Marcella Lamberti More
Lovely holiday in a great hotel
We arrived at 9.30pm and were promptly booked in. They suggested that we could go straight to the restaurant for our evening meal as it closed at 10.00pm and the luggage would be taken to our room 443. We appreciated this and when we arrived at our room the luggage was waiting. We found this level of service throughout our stay. Initially I was disappointed that we had a side view and were not on a higher floor but it was not a problem. I also would have liked a chance to view the Elite Suites or be shown around as other reviewers had mentioned but this was not an option as we were late to arrive. Facilities great, room basic but comfortable, food fabulous and great variety. Staff exceptionally friendly and accommodating despite being all inclusive which can be resented due to lack of tips (although we did tip) Animation Team enthusiastic but not intrusive. Pools and grounds fabulous. Didnt use the spa but did use the gym. Only suggestions would be that reception staff provided option of safe key on arrival and a map was available on front desk. Our stay was made easier, re bus into Rhodes Town, what was available in hotel, etc through reading reviews in advance. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again - a great hotel and credit to management.More
Little to find fault with.
Just home from a weeks holiday with 3 girlfriends. This hotel is lovely. The hotel is built around the rocks. It has a quieter swimming pool and terrace/restaurant for lunch on the 11th floor. The main restaurant is on the 10th floor. The selection of food available was diverse - something for everyone and all nicely cooked and presented and very palatable. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. The entertainment was low key during our stay - apart from the Greek dancing night with audience participation (which was good fun). I suspect the entertainment might be more lively in peak holiday time. The main pools were below and in front of the hotel. Upper pool for adults and lower one with waterfall and music for all. Music played was mainly current songs - geared to younger people. Only downside was it was a bit repetitive. I like The Weekend, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber and club music but hearing 'Starboy' etc many times did get a bit tedious. However, if you sat far enough away from the bar area you could zone out. Sun beds were set in a nice garden. The hotel was spotlessly clean. Our rooms were light and airy with air con. The beds were comfy too. Tea and coffee facilities available. Sadly the hairdryer was very poor. I have fine short hair and it took over 15 minutes to dry it. The beach is in front of the hotel accessed by a tunnel. It is a fair walk to any supermarket/shop or another bar or restaurant. I believe the bus stop into Rhodes Town was close by and regular. We didn't use it. We went on the trip to Symi Island (very picturesque and a trip worth doing). We also did the Best Of Rhodes trip with a brief stop to buy ceramics, 2 hours in Lindos and similar in Rhodes Town. Had we not been to Rhodes before we may have revisited both under our own steam. But the trip gives you a snapshot of the island. The hotel had quite a few steps and some floors had a step up or down to another level on the same floor - our room had a step down to the living area. But there were various lifts so most people would have no problem. The hotel has been established for some years. The decor is understated and elegant. Its not trendy or modern but very comfortable and easy on the eye. The spa and gym were at the front behind the lower pool. We visited but didn't get round to using it as the weather was good. The hotel did run various classes - aqua, zumba and stretching for instance, which took place outside. There was children's entertainment mid evening for a short time. The shop inside the hotel did not sell books but apparently rents them out. The hotel didn't seem to have a library of guests books left behind so if your kindle broke like mine did you would have to walk a fair way to buy one or hope a guest would leave one on the table outside the lifts on your floor. I would recommend visiting this hotel unless you had mobility problems. Its worth its 5 stars. How can it be improved? Just get better hair dryers and alternate the music at the pool more regularly. I would go back to stay there.More
Very memorable holiday
Where do I start: I came back from the Amathus beach hotel only today (12 May 2017) after spending 5 nights there. This review is written by someone who is very critical, working in the same industry (hotels) and I am an OCD! Arrival experience: initially I was not overwhelmed with the check in experience, as we were given registration cards and asked to fill in all the details (names, passport details, DOB ect), when this is typically pre-printed and a guest only need to sign and state the next destination. Anyhow, towards the end of my stay, I thought the reception team was nice and helpful. After this so called Check In, Guests Relations manager Philip showed us around the resort, he was very nice and pleasant. He offered us an "upgrade" to a bungalow, which we have declined as we wanted a sea view room. A few special thank you's: - Voula Savvena, who made sure our stay was great. Very efficient lady. My husband's birthday on the 9th may was celebrated with a bottle of sparkling rose wine organized by Voula. - Joanna & Esmeralda - two ladies from housekeeping, who attended our room so well (827). Yes, the hotel and the rooms are dated and need renovation, but the room was very clean. - Young welcoming trainee hostess Evangelia who was not only nice to us, she was very nice to all of the guests and made everyone comfortable. Thank you! - Dimitra, with her unlimited smile on her face and Lovely Maria (red hair and pink lipstick charming girl), who was very accommodating. - Mr Gousnie , an elderly chef who ensured the buffer was well looked after and he always kept smiling. - and Senior Management, Vasilis, executive Hotel Manager, who was pretty much everywhere welcoming, greeting the guests and of course, Aris, restaurant manager, who was very friendly all the time. He had to float in this massive restaurant to ensure everyone was attended. Great location, very nice staff, really good food, I am in love with the Greek people and Greek food after this trip. They are such a nice and genuine people without being pushy. I would recommend this hotel, although if they can invest and refurbish will be great. Nevertheless, I would go back, just simply because the staff was so friendly and it is always the people who makes a different and they help us to create the memories. very good WI FI round the hotel .More
