It's the pool scene that turns heads at the Atlantica Aegean Blue. A turquoise number complete with water jets winds its way around the grounds, snaking under little wooden bridges. The real talking point, though, is the mini waterpark that's brimming with tubes and slides. You're also just footsteps from the beach, so you can swap pool for sea in seconds.
Elsewhere, there's plenty in the way of sports and activities. As well as favourites like beach volleyball, there are things like canoeing on offer. And special attention is paid to smaller guests at the Thomson Kids' Club.
The hotel itself is made up of low-level buildings separated by gardens, so expect a village-like vibe. In the bedrooms, calm vanilla tones strike a contemporary note. If you've got the children in tow, family rooms come with the option of sliding doors, giving you a little bit of privacy.

Fantastic friendly hotel spoilt by freezing cold swimming pools
This hotel has very friendly staff, very clean, superb food with lots of variety and really good quality. The only thing that spoil it are the un-heated swimming pools We have just come back and they are just too cold to go in. Our room though really comfortable was in the main block and there is no air con. in the rooms., it is just too hot to sleep in and we were told there were water sports on the beach by the tour operator and there are none. It is really worth hiring a car and seeing the island. Take insect repellent with you as at night you can really get bitten by mosquitos.More

Would give higher star rating if I could!!!
What a week!! Visited the resort with my mam & 9 year old sister, first holiday I've had in a few years and it couldn't have been better! The hotel is fantastic, it's immaculate throughout, the hotel staff are all very friendly and easy to approach. Rooms were cleaned daily and left in an immaculate condition. Thompson entertainment team could not have been better! Activities run throughout the day from about 10am til 5pm, with a short break over lunch time. The team are very friendly, funny and incredibly entertaining, we joined in with just about every activity every day and they really make you feel comfortable and welcome. My sister joined the kids club a couple of times and really enjoyed herself, they do a range of activities with them and it keeps them busy for a few hours and gave us a nice little break. The food was absolutely delicious! I've seen a few reviews and heard of a couple complaining while we were there ourselves and I really can't understand why! It was some of the best food I've tasted. every night is a different theme so you never get bored, we had greek night, italian & mexican, I think we went back for 3rds!! We didn't really use the water park but it looked fantastic and everyone who did enjoyed it. The hotel is a little out the way, so if you like to go for walks and explore it might not be for you, but there is a regular bus into Lindos & Rhodes town and it's not expensive only 3.50 each way and 1.75 for kids. Nice quiet location and right on the beach, although it was a pebble beach it was still nice to walk along, and the mountain is climbable! Only arrived home last night and am already itching to price up another holiday here for myself and my partner!!More

Really good holiday
I booked the week before going and was really pleased with the hotel, lots of choices for all meals, stayed in one of the rooms near the pool area, very comfortable with wifi (a little temperamental), a kettle with tea bags and coffee etc, a fridge with water and soft drinks. Lovely comfortable beds. Very clean and tidy. Not much of a beach but you don't need it. A good small shop for extras if needed. I would like to return, hopefully the pool will warm up soon, rather cold last week (April). We were very grateful for the restaurant staying open on our arrival which was about 11pm, and for the buggy to take our luggage to our room. Very friendly staff. I thought the children's food area for them to pick their own was a really great idea (saw adults taking food from it too i.e. mash potato!). A really good holiday, wish I had booked for two weeks now! More

Fantastic weeks holiday - would recommend and go again!
Reading the great reviews below I fully agree with Darrell R, instead of repeating what has been said previously I will add our personal experiences. We did not hire a car, but would have done if we had stayed for two weeks as we wished we had done, it was the first week of the season and I do hope the staff can keep up their very friendly and helpful attitudes. Nothing was to much trouble. We did 4 day trips during the week, we visited Rhodes town twice and Lindos twice. I will review these separately but Kolimbia was in the middle of both places and the 45-50 minute bus ride went quickly. €3.50 per person each way as previously mentioned. We were told that the buses would run infrequently but it did seem that the drivers from Lindos made a special trip into Kolimbia to drop off tourists that were on the bus as they only stopped outside either of the two hotels. This made the bus times more frequent than we expected. The hotel did pack lunch if you wanted to go out for the day but this needed to be requested at reception before 7pm the previous evening, we only did this once as the sandwiches were not very nice (the bread is a little hard) and we forgot the other times. I would recommend doing this as you can get some drinks to take out with you. They even provide you with a cool bag to use that must be returned of course. We are already contemplating going back next Easter, this was our first all inclusive experience and it was great. Well done to all the staff at the hotel!More

The BEST all-rounder I've ever stayed in
After a long day with flights and travelling what is it that we all fancy? Well upon arrival at The Aegean we were greeted with a beer/drink full food service and after we had finished were taken by golf buggy to the accommodation so didn't even walk. Now I know your probably thinking only two of you arrived, when infact it was around 300 people (1st week of season) had all landed all had a drink and same service. Our room overlooked the pool was immaculate and slight sea view could be a little noisy but expected that being pool side. Food was fantastic everything was well cooked and presented, more importantly there was variety which is sometimes lacking in All inc resorts, pool side bar served snacks in the day which were equally lovely. The Asian Fusion restaurant in my opinion was not very good, some fantastic dishes some not (different chef and set up to the normal restaurant) Water park opened last day we were there looked really good and kids loved it As everyone says the beach isn't luscious golden sands but who cares. We went as a couple and I was over joyed with the service and manner of all the staff everywhere was well drilled and organised. Top tip: best way to explore the island is via car (excursions worked out to £300 for 3 short ones) we hired a car from Extreme cars ( out the main gate go left then first left and it's on the right hand side) for £90 for 4 days! Absolute bargain Rhodos cars inside the hotel are £110 for 3 days. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Genuinely, although I was disappointed in the fusion restaurant that would not put me off a return stay. Many thanks for a great stayMore
