Atlantica Aegean Blue

The Atlantica Aegean Blue is right on the edge of a sand and shingle beach, and views of the Mediterranean Sea stretch out for miles.

Wrapped up in gardens, the hotel keeps itself to itself, but you can catch the bus to Rhodes town from a stop just next to the property.

Fantastic holiday with 3 toddlers and new born!

We had a fantastic holiday at the Aegean Blue in May 2015. We travelled with friends and together we had 3 toddlers and a new born. They all loved it! The hotel provided private transfers for us, in a mini van with car seats for all the children. We had to pay about 40euros but it was much better than sitting on a coach for over an hour! The food was fantastic, lots of choice everyday for both adults and children. The waterpark is brilliant, the splash pool is perfect for all children, especially young ones. The slides are also great for the adults and the lazy river was a hit with the children too. The hotel itself has a childrens pool and a park with swings and slides too. The water in all the pools is Freezing though! We struggled getting the children to the evening entertainment as it started at 7, and the restaurant opens at 6.30 so to get them fed and down in half an hour was often tough!! Maybe a suggestion to start the entertainment later or the buffet earlier. The rooms were brilliant. We had a family room in a block away from the main area and we were not disturbed by the entertainment and we were close enough to the kids pools too. The family rooms had partitions which were really good too, allowed the children to sleep peacefully! We also hired a mini bus for the day and went sight seeing with the kids. We went to a fantastic beach 20 mins from the hotel which the kids loved. The beach at the hotel is not worth visiting, as it is a shingle beach and not much space. We would definitely come back to this hotel and I would definitely recommend this hotel to those traveling with children. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to couples wanting a child-free holiday as it was very busy with lots of children!More

Overall a lovely holiday...

Returned a few days ago from this hotel and whilst enjoyed our holiday was a little disappointed in some aspects of our stay. The hotel is classed as a 5* star hotel although I feel it is more akin to a 4* for the following reasons: whilst the rooms were clean and spacious they are not luxurious as you would expect from a 5*, neither do they resemble the photos on the Thomson website. On separate days our towels were not replaced, coffee cups not changed and no milk left for coffee. The wine provided in the evening on the tables was not great and was often warm. The seated terrace dining area is situated directly above the stage below which was extremely noisy from early evening with the childrens' entertainment, not exactly relaxing whilst trying to enjoy a meal. The food was on the whole good, however feel that the desserts could have been so much better. The choice was also predictable after a couple of days there. The fruit juices were watered down, however on occasion there was fresh orange juice which was lovely. The cocktails which were included in the all inclusive were not pleasant. The evening entertainment for adults was below what you would expect for a 5* hotel. Now for the positive points ! The staff are great, very friendly and helpful and appeared to work tirelessly to make sure everyone was having a good time. One particular lady that stood out was Linda who worked in the bar area, always smiling and making sure everyone was ok and had what they wanted.A credit to the hotel. One of the reps also stood out and I think her name was Anna. We visited Lindos and Rodos which are well worth a visit and reasonable to get to on the bus. We also hired a car from Rodos cars situated in the hotel. The guy who ran this was very friendly and informative about the island. The pools are great, there is a fantastic waterpark and the hotel is right on the beach which although is not sandy is still lovely. We stayed in the 'bungalows' which were away from the main hotel and was quiet in the evenings unlike some rooms in the main hotel. We travelled as a couple( my children are grown up) and would definately recommend this hotel for families with children as there was so much for the children to do, however if you are looking for a relaxing, quiet holiday then this is not the hotel for you!More

Good family hotel

Had a very good time first time travelling with an infant. Very good buffet food and snack bar. Water park and pools were great for the little one. Only problem was room was near the stage and quite noisy in the evenings, until about 10.30. Would recommend for families. More

Fantastic Family Hotel

It was our first visit to Rhodes and Greece for that matter, the airport was complete madness both arriving and departing! but it didn't spoil our visit. We were the first drop off on the transfer which was a bonus. The check in was extremely quick and informative and we was greeted by a lovely lady offering us refreshments straight away. We were taken to our room via a buggy and our cases were carried for us by the porter, he showed us around our beautiful room. We were in room 1301, a ground floor room overlooking the pool, we had our own patio area with table and chairs and also a grassy area with sunbeds and umbrella. The room had sliding doors for a bit of privacy from the kids to us, a stocked fridge with water and pop, flat screen TV, huge comfy bed, robe and slippers and the bathroom had a shower cubicle, toilet with privacy door, sink and bath with another overhead shower, we had air con which wasn't to nosey and enough wardrobe space for 2 adults and 2 kids. We did also hire a safe for 20 euro's. We arrived late in the evening so took advantage of the 11.30 buffet before bed. The hotel is absolutely spotless and the staff work extremely hard to keep it that way, constantly tidying away after people that don't! the pool bar staff are fantastic and have a great laugh with you, the kids loved being able to get their own slushes and ice creams when they wanted too. The pool snack bar had a great selection of food, the Gyros are amazing. We used this every day rather than the restaurant. The pool is huge not to cold either tbh and the life guards were lovely and friendly and could have a laugh with the kids, we went to the beach for a look and a quick paddle but it is very pebbly so didn't visit for long. Due to peak season you did have to reserve sunbeds, other wise you wouldn't get one, I don't like doing this but if you can't beat them join them! We only tried the all inclusive buffet in the evening a few times as we like to eat out, nothing wrong with the food or service just our personal choice. The breakfast was lovely a selection for everyone, it was very busy though so you need to time it right. You get greeted at the door and shown to a table either inside or out. In the evening you can have wine also which was lovely. The onsite shop was reasonable with their prices and sold lots of nice things too, this is where you pick you towels up from and return them. Both my children took part in the activities through the day and my youngest enjoyed the kids club a lot. The water park is situated right next to the kids club so we used this a couple of times during our stay after I picked him up, it was never that busy and you never had to wait for a go on the slides, I had great fun with my boys there. Whilst we stayed at Kolymbia we did walk into the small town a few times it took about 15 to 20 mins to get there and there are some lovely shops and a handful of nice restaurants. We also spent a day in Lindos which is a must see for anyone who hasn't been. Our taxi driver was really helpful and spoke fantastic English he dropped us off and picked us up and recommended us to his friend restaurant, which was also really nice. I could of quite easily stopped a little bit longer and would love to return to this hotel again. I highly recommend this hotel for families. I just hope we haven't been too spoilt for any future holidays we have elsewhere as they will have huge boots to fill after being here for a week.More

A nice break

This was a well managed, clean hotel, staff were friendly food was good, and service was helpful. On the down side we were half board and to have to sign for a cup of tea after dinner was for me not good. a lot of the entertainment was more holiday camp than hotel. Lovely rooms, and pool.More
