The Louis Colossos Beach is set right on Kalithea’s stretch of sand and shingle. It’s also in a prime spot for exploring – Rhodes Town is only 10 minutes away.
This place has a top location, right on Kalithea’s sand-and-shingle beach. It’s only a 10-minute drive from all the action in Rhodes Town, too – and there’s a bus stop and taxi rank just outside the hotel.
Set just behind the beach are two pools, plus a cluster of lunch and snack spots. Bedrooms are nice and spacious, and they all come with a balcony or terrace – upgrade and you’ll get a sea view, too.

Fantastic for the family
This is an all inclusive hotel with all of the amenities you need for a family holiday. Our check in was quick and the staff speak English very well. It would have been handy to know there was water in the fridge and the meal times were a little complicated, so a welcome flyer would have been nice. Waking up to the beach/sea view was wonderful. The air con wasn't wonderful, so it got a bit warm in the room, but we didn't pay extra for it, and the night sea breeze kept us comfortable. We had two rooms between the 5 of us (2 adults, 2 teenagers and a 9 year old), and they were perfectly spacious. There were plenty of plug sockets and the showers were nice and powerful. Maids came every day except Sunday and replaced the towels, the sheets were changed every few days. The maids were lovely and though they didn't speak English, they gathered that we weren't early risers and left our rooms until after 10. They also provided extra pillows. The three pools were great, if a bit cold. There were always drinks available inside and outside the hotel, and on the beach, and the children didn't have any problems fetching their own, the staff were very friendly to them. The food was mostly fresh, although some was repeated from lunch to dinner. If we wanted freshly cooked food, we had pizza, Chinese food, bbq food from the beach and the "special" dish of the evening, all of which you could see being cooked in front of you. There was plenty of choice. And although the all inclusive wristband ran out at 1am, drinks were available after that time for a few euros. There was also a shop on site, which stocked everything you could possibly need for your stay. One issue we encountered (with teenagers), was the lack of WiFi. In this day and age, WiFi should be available at all hotels. We used one of the hotel's computers at one point, but the Internet was very slow, so it wasn't an experience we repeated. I truly hope that when this hotel has its planned refurbished, they bring it up to date with WiFi. All in all, I think we experienced very good value for money. The staff were all very friendly to myself and my family, though I did notice they weren't so responsive to some people who showed no manners. Quite frankly, I didn't blame them, it doesn't take much to say please and thank you, and a smile costs nothing. We had a great time. The bus service from the hotel was reliable, so we went out a few times. The water park was across the road, so we walked there, it was a great day out. I'd thoroughly recommend this hotel. I look forward to seeing what they achieve with the impending refurbishment, but I'd take the family again, even if it wasn't being redone.More
Delivers what it promises!
This is a large, no-nonsense all-inclusive package tour hotel which is set to be refurbished and otherwise improved from next year onwards. Considering its size and how much it charges, it delivers pretty well. Management is on the ball, staff are pleasant, facilities impressive, the beach location is fine and the food not at all bad - nor boring. We certainly enjoyed our week there in late September and used it as a convenient base to get into Rhodes town (marvellous!) and tour the rest of the island.More

Great holiday once again
I'm very late reviewing my stay at the Louis Colossos, just been busy but could not miss reviewing my 4th stay here. What can I say it's like coming home, so many hugs and kisses from our lovely friends here. There's, Andrulla, Elinor and Luca on reception, Ireni on the pool bar, Eleni on the beach bar, Anna in the lunchtime restaurant, Petros in the small main restaurant Andrea in the upstairs coffee and cake bar, yummy, and of course Mr George who never passes you without speaking, there is many many more happy smiling faces to greet you. ð¤ð¤ I can't not mention Carol & Ken who we meet up with each year xð ð not forgetting Mac & Cathy ð Yes, the place is in need of a bit if TLC ( which we heard is going to commence at the end of the 2016 season) but the happy staff make up for that. But the choice of things to eat is still amazing, breakfast, noon and night. There's so much choice for breakfast it takes 10/15 minutes to decide what to have to eat ð¤ The same goes for the evening ð Our favourite is the barbecue and pizza's for lunch.ðð there's also coffee with pastries, cake and biscuits at 4.30 and sandwiches etc at 10.30, if you can't find anything to fill you up then you have to be a really fussy eater ð.More
Ignore the haters - I enjoyed my stay
Firstly I don't believe this hotel deserves the slating it gets in some reviews ! Yes it's a bit dated but that's about it ! Each staff member I came into contact with was extremely helpful and friendly and I really enjoyed my stay. Rooms - the rooms are spacious enough for 2-3 people and basically when people say their rooms are dirty, their not dirty and the maid did a fabulous job but basically their stained - Asin your mirror may have rust stain etc but to me a room is just a base to wash and sleep, I spend the rest of the time exploring and relaxing outside Area - the beach is a absolutely fab - defiantly bring your googles, I saw octopus and various other fish in the sea, the beach is filled with various places selling water sport activities which I did and the crazy ufo is hilarious, it's right by a water park and a few shops, water park is great fun - worth a visit for sure ! Pool - the pool was spotless, very cold tho, go in the pool first then make a dash for the sea, the sea feels like a bath! Food - I'm not fussy with food and I do love my food, breakfast was fab, various egg dishes and Greek style yoghurt - my fave! Bacon, sausages, fresh bread, beans ! Lunch had various meats, bolognese, salad stuff - fresh pizza! Tea was very similar, had lovely lasagne dishes etc! And these people saying food is cold I did not encounter one cold peice of food, there's even a microwave there if you do feel that your foods cold! Location - 30 min bus to Rhodes town, 5 min taxi to falaraki - I don't drink but visited falaraki when the sun would set to play crazy golf with my partner and have an ice cream from an amazing shop! Â£3 each for 2 ginormous scoops of ice cream! If you like crazy golf and shops defiantly visit falaraki! Lindos is an hour journey away; the Acropolis is okay if you like history, I went to visit St. Paul's bay which had good fish etc if you brought googles and seemed like the Maldives with crystal clear water and white sand ! Lindos beach is also beautiful! You can get a boat trip there from outside the hotel for 26 euro each with a return or a bus costs around 10 each including your return ! The boat claims to take 55 mins - 5 mins shorter than the bus which is why we choose the boat as we could sit in the sun too but it took 1 hour 40!! So defiantly take the bus ! Seats are uncomfortable on the boat too! Overall this hotel is tired but is due to be renovated but what it has to offer is fab! Plenty of variety of drinks, lots of bars, tennis, a gym, table tennis, pool tables!! I'd go again ! More
