Kalithea Horizon Royal

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.

Caroline S,


Just returned from a brilliant week at the Kalithea Horizon Royal. Have never stayed in a place so clean and meticulous as this. Such a credit to all the staff working there - an amazing job by all. Can't say enough about the amazing pools, views, food, and service. Will definitely return!!! More


Wonderful Hotel

After two glorious weeks at Kalithea Horizon Royal in July this year, we decided to return for a late October break. Our second visit to the resort did not disappoint, so much so we have already booked to return for a third time - July 2015. The hotel has many qualities: the beautiful sea views, the comfortable and spacious rooms, the exquisite food and service, animation team (especially the zumba classes) but above all the friendly staff who make you feel extremely welcome. On both holidays most evenings were spent in the Safari Bar where staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and relaxed (Theodora and Xristos deserve a special thank you). Ilias, who worked at the Delfina Restaurant, also looked after us very well. Although there are very few bars/tavernas in walking distance, Falaraki and Rhodes town are only a short drive away (about 15 minutes by taxi). Rhodes old town is especially worth a visit: during our second trip we spent two wonderful days exploring the cobbled streets of this historic and quaint town. We are counting down the days until our next visit!! The Hamilton Family (North Wales)More

Great holiday

Oct 9 Having recently returned from Hotel Horizon Royal in Kalithea Rhodes we thought we’d give our views on the experience. One word; fantastic. We were a little trepidatious in view of some of the reports. We needn’t have worried. We had a standard room which was as good and spacious as the superior room we had last year in Minorcaa. Spacious, clean and a decent view. Probably the best hotel we’ve stayed in all our holidays to Greece and Spain. It couldn’t be faulted for cleanliness. We didn’t see a spill or dirty area anywhere. The pools were spotless at all times. As soon as anything was dropped or spilt it was cleared up immediately. There were plenty of sun beds available, providing you didn’t want to always go by the Athena pools. Yes, people did put towels on sun beds to reserve them, but it wasn’t only the usual suspects. Plenty of Brit’s did the same thing. At the Mythos pools and other areas there were always plenty of sun beds spare. At the height of the season there will always be a ‘race’ for the beds. The food was fantastic. There was always plenty of choice, even towards the end of meal times. You could have a different meal every day for at least 14 days. Anyone who complains about the food is really being a bit fussy. There were different meats and vegetables at main meals so you have different combinations. Breakfast was also as good. If anything, there was too much choice and overate on more than one occasion. There were complaints about the drain smells. If you’ve been to Greece before you’ll know that it’s always a problem with drains. There were some smells, by my accommodation for one, but nothing I haven’t experienced before in other resorts and nothing that would put me off going there again. There was a bit of a problem with flies. Possibly caused by food being dropped around the place or on balconies. If you must have wifi on holiday, get a life. There’s more to life than the internet. Give your phone a rest. Apart from a couple of texts my phone stayed in the safe except when my camera packed up towards the end of the holiday. We found no difference in service towards Brit’s than to other nationalities. At the main bar we got seen to as quickly as anyone else. The same in the main restaurant. If you’re polite to people and talk to them it goes along way to better relations. For those who thought they were being conned in some way, the blue bands were for German visitors who paid more for their holiday to include sun beds and meals down on the beach. Most others had yellow bands, except for the half boarders. You had to pay for sun beds on the beach because it is separate from the hotel. As far as the staff is concerned, they were all polite and helpful. The only slight problem was understanding sometimes what they were saying. If you are patient and listen carefully all becomes clear. The Thomson rep, Danielle, was brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble. She gave a short concise briefing at the meeting. She didn’t ramble like some we’ve come across. The only downside is the location. It’s a bit isolated. But if you do your research you’ll know that before you get there. Kalithea Springs nearby is only about 15 min’s walk. If you’re feeling fit Faliraki’s only about an hours walk away. Buses were plentiful, cheap and yes, crowded. So what? Get on and get around. They were no worse than other parts of Greece or Spain. Would I recommend the hotel? Definitely. Alan & Elaine NightingaleMore

Nice hotel, great holiday

Hotel is very modern and clean. It is a big complex and we were literally in the room the furthest away from the restaurant. Food choice and quality were good. Rooms spacious and clean. Disappointed in charge for wifi. Beer nice, wine iffy. Rola-Cola. The site shop was very limited for stock. There is nothing else in the area, but there was plenty going on in the various hotel bars by way of entertainment. Less than 10 mins in a cab to Rhodes Town, which was lovely by day, but dead in the evening. More
