This hotel has 6 scene-stealing pools set over 3 levels. The beach is just a short drive away, too.
This hilltop hotel really captures the views across the Bay of Kalithea and the rocky beach below can be reached on foot. Talking of transport, the local bus gets to Faliraki in 10 minutes, Rhodes Town in 20.
The hotel shares things with Kalithea Mare Palace, so you get a lot for your money. For starters, there are 6 pools – 3 of which cascade down from each other. You’ve got a choice of restaurants, and a handful of bars, too.

Beautiful time of year
I had my apprehensions about going to Rhodes so late in the year, but I needn't have worried, the weather was perfect. The only downside was the pools were cold, but if you were brace enough, you got used to it!! We stayed in the last week of October, and it was bliss, as the place was virtually empty, so no fighting over the loungers, you could take your pick!! We took our five year old, and she was thoroughly entertained by the kids club and mini disco every night. I have to say the entertainment here was exceptional, the animation team did an amazing job of getting all nationalities to participate! This place is beautiful, huge, and lots of walking involved, but that doesn't detract from how stunning the setting is. If I had to complain about anything it would be a) the beds are ridiculously hard, but the maids kindly put on a mattress topper and this improved it slightly. And b) the food. Yes, the choice was astounding, but unfortunately it was all fairly bland and at best Luke warm. We always found something to eat, but mealtimes felt like a chore rather than something we could enjoy. I don't want to complain about this place though, because truly it is lovely, the staff are incredible, and work tirelessly to keep everyone happy, and the place spotless. Would I recommend? Yes absolutely, we had a wonderful time. Thanks to the hotel for a wonderful relaxing break More
Last Minute Surprise
We decided on a Friday to book a last minute deal and booked our first holiday in Greece. This turned out to be a very good pick. The roon in the 300's needed freshening up however it was the end of the season. The external buildings toilet blocks pools etc were of a very high standard and kept exceptionally clean and tidy. The pool areas were really nice and all of them had a small snack bar that served food and drinks. There were two resturants serving a really comprehensive range of food, all of a very good quality almost the best help yourself resturants I have experiencd. Wifi was a bit dodgy however what do you expect in Greece. Give this hotel serious consideration, it is really first class.More
7 day stay in September 2016
I stayed at this resort with a friend for 1 week and we loved it. We found entertainment and food was of a good variety and the grounds itself had lovely facilities. Staff were very friendly and always there to assist when needed. The weather was hot and rooms were very clean and modern.More
better than expected
Visited this hotel 17th Oct on an all inc with Thompson form Newcastle. No negatives at all and what problem we had was immediately sorted so turned into a positive Hotel is a massive complex a bit hilly so anyone with walking difficulties may find it awkward but there are shuttle buses which will take you around and down to the beach. Impecably clean rooms, garden, etc We found all staff friendly and accommodating nothing was to much trouble, food was excellent and always varied so anyone who who could not find anything WELL?.Was there a smell ,hit and miss certainly not where we were room 818 did catch a whiff on lower parts of site but few and far between. 3 bars two restaurants all with there own entertainment which wasn't all bad We upgraded to superior room which was very spacious, beautifully decorated massive balcony overlooking beach and sea and lovely tiled bathroom included in upgrade was safe key for free complimentary bottle of wine and stocked minibar, no alchohol but water soft drinks etc Lots of work goes on behind the scenes at Horizon which some people may not appreciate ie gardeners, cleaners, drivers and the like who work tirelessly to make this hotel what it is. It is a family hotel so do expect children shouting and playing if you like there is a quiet adult pool at front of hotel Could go on but really all positives, Would we return? Most certainly this hotel ticks all the boxes and is in an ideal location for visits to Rhodes, Lindos, Falirakri Finally Very Very good value for money holiday.More
We visited Kalithea Horizon Royal hotel/resort for a week from Tues 19th October. We visit Rhodes regularly but usually Lindos and Pefkos but as we have a small child 1years old with us we opted for an all inclusive for convenience. The weather was warm in the day and chilly at night but this was to be expected on the last weeks of the season. The hotel: Reception: Helpful staff, some may have a stern approach or may not be as smiley as you hope but they work long shifts. They were helpful and could answer queries. You can hire towels for the pool from them (although we had some already in our room for use) they organise buggys to take you from place to place and to collect your luggage. Staff around the hotel: My son was spoken to by any member of staff that passed him either saying hello or something in greek we didn't understand. It felt like everyone cared. The room: Big fluffy pillows, firm mattresses and super clean. My son had a travel cot which was super soft and comfy he slept through all week (he doesn't always do this at home) A mini fridge with drinks you can enjoy as part of being all inclusive which are topped up every 3 days. Complimentary toiletries, a hair dryer and fresh towels daily. The rooms were also cleaned daily. There is a safe in the room which you can hire and air conditioning as well. The rooms have tv with the usual tv you get when abroad. Room have a lovely little balcony and we were lucky ours was next to the mythos pool. Food: There are quite a few different places to eat throughout the day. Two main restaurants, pool bars, snack bars and little pop up gyros and hot dog bars. Theres also an alacarte restaurant which you can use once (we did and preferred the normal restaurants) A wide variety of food. Seafood seems to be a favourite with spectacular displays showcasing the foods. They have themed evenings Chinese, greek etc. I am a fussy eater but there was so much to choose from I never went hungry. They also provide a children's selection the usual pizza, chips, pasta etc. Drinks: Pool bars have drinks machines to use, fizzy drinks, coffee machines, beer pumps to help yourself and you can get house spirits at the bar as well as cocktails all included in your all inclusive. Beach: The beach is a little walk downhill and if you are all inc with Thomson its not included so its 2.5euros for a sun lounger and food and drinks are to be paid for. its similar stuff to the snack bars in the restuaurants. The beach in shingle and not kind on your toes so wear some swimming shoes. but the water was warm. Pools: There are 3 different pool sites to choose from all clean, all have padded loungers and shallow childrens pools. they were cold end of oct but you get used to it. Entertainment: There's an animation team which work at the safari bar hosting different nights full of fun for the family. Theres also more formal entertainment in the main bar too. Alex the English girl in the animation team was lovely and made us feel very welcome. Children: There is a mini-club which is manned by an adult where you can leave children over 4. Has great play equipment on a soft landing surface. There is also 2 further play areas with swings, see-saws, roundabouts, climbing frames for children of all ages out 1year old loved it. Location: If you leave the hotel to walk around it takes about 15 mins to walk downhill to the chemist supermarket and a few restaurants. so pretty much stay in the hotel or hire a car. We walked to the little shops and hired a car which was cheaper than using the hotels car rental. Although they drive on the other side of the road its pretty easy to get used to. We visited Rhodes town about 10mins drive, faliraki, 5 mins drive, seven springs 20mins drive and lindos 40mins drive. Other bits: There's a supermarket in the hotel. The hotel shares the premises with Kalithea mare hotel which offers more of a range of boards. The clientele was mainly English and German when we went. There are daily activities such as zumba at the pools which is good fun! We were really happy with this hotel and my only suggestion is to have some nappy changing facilities, changers etc in at least one toilet in each area or the disabled toilets.More
