Apollo Beach Hotel
Ranked #17 of 70 Hotels in Faliraki
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 July 2009

First part is in English and the second is in Serbian, I guess I have the obligation there:

We visited Apollo beach from 21.6-1.7.2009. on half board. We are a family with two children one girl 6 years old and one boy 10 months old.
We got a room immediately when we arrived at 8 in the morning. I have to thank our tour guide from Kalodoukas agency for that. We got a suite 204, with full see view. This was a pleasant surprise, but, as we entered the room we realised that it stank of mould (mildew). We tried to run A/C to the max for a few hours, but it didn't help. The suite was large, I have to admit. It was directly above the stage, so the noise from the football game projected on the large screen was unbearable (take kids into the account, as we go to bed early). Couple of minutes later, while we were thinking what to do, I saw and killed a cockroach 4cm large. In the end, we asked our guide and she arranged a much smaller, but far better and quieter room. We moved immediately. I can not complain any more about the room as this one is quieter than the middle ones (the Greek night and live music is in front) or the other side, towards Blue Apollo Beach pavilion. You have to bear in mind that it faces another hotel and the animation there could be quite loud, but with closed door it was OK.
Now, let me dig into the details of the service in the hotel:
FOOD: Breakfast was above average, always something to choose from, main ingredients always present and you could tune your meal to make it personal to some extent with the cook. Dinner was very good, plenty of different types of food, cooked, grilled, fried, for everyone’s taste. There was at least one Greek meal and one made for the majority of the guests (Germans) and you have different type of pasta every day of the week cooked specially by the chef himself. Snack bar was OK, prices moderate
HOTEL: Impressive hotel, with large lobby, two separate sides, large pool and a huge garden with free umbrellas and sun beds. The staff is very friendly and they speak English, German and Italian. If the room-cleaner does not speak English, she has company of someone who does, neat indeed. There is Internet access in front of the reception, free, and plenty of seating, while you chat or surf or talk to someone (usable for most popular Internet voice clients). The pool is large and clean, plenty of natural and artificial shades around it but we did not use it at all, because of the
BEACH: Sandy beach (now I have to make a digression here, as we really like those sand SAND beaches, with fine sand, where we enjoy castle building and generally having fun with it using it to build different things), almost perfect size of the particle, you can use it for many things. Also, there are sun beds with umbrellas for which you have to pay (EUR7 in our case, for two). There are pathways made of wood, almost to the waterfront, great when the sand is very hot and when with kids. There is one pathway which runs in parallel with the sea and it is great for strolls in the morning and evening, baby buggy with medium sized wheels can go over it without too much trouble. You could go to the see from the garden, using free sun beds without problems and without feeling like you are missing something. There is a beach volleyball court, smallish, but good fun.
I would recommend this hotel to younger people if they can afford it. They will have limited company in the hotel, but plenty to do outside. We were happy with what we could find in and around the hotel, but Faliraki is a place which is not Greek. It does not have any of the Greek typical things, it is oriented towards fun for Brits and we were quite out of the place with two small kids. Rhodes town is not far away and it is worth a visit. Also, visit Tsampiki beach (Tsabika), great sand, long shallow entry in the water, great bay (noting more than one day trip, but worth it), eat at Tsambiki Beach restaurant (when you face the see, on the left side, worth a try) ask for Jorgos, he will help you with the food, transportation, you name it.
Srpska verzija:
Posetili smo Apollo Beach hotel od 26. juna do 1. jula 2009. Nas je bilo dvoje odraslih i jedno dete od 6 godina i jedna beba od 10 meseci.
Dobili smo sobu odmah po dolasku u hotel (hvala JAT-u na letu u 4:25 ujutru, sa dvoje dece). Moram da zahvalim našem vodiču iz Kalodoukas-a za sobu koju smo dobili odmah. Dobili smo apartman broj 204 sa potpunim pogledom na more. Bilo je to prijatno iznenađenje dok nismo ušli u sobu. Jako se osećelo na buđ. Probali smo da klimom učinimo nešto, ali nije pomogli. Apartman je bio veliki, moram da priznam. Takođe, bio je direktno iznad pozornice tako da je buka bila nepodnošljiva (gledala se neka utakmica) a mi, zbog dece, idemo ranije na spavanje. Par minuta kasnije, dok smo još uvek razmatrali šta da uradimo, primetio sam i utepao jednu bubašvabu, ogromnu. Na kraju smo pozvali našeg vodiča i ona nam je obezbedila znatno manju, ali mnogo bolju i tišu sobu. Preselili smo se odmah. Ne mogu da se požalim na novu sobu, jer je tisa nego one okrenute ka sredini paviljona (Grčke noći i živa muzika su ispred) ili na drugoj strani, prema Blue Apollo Beach hotelu. Uzmite u obzir da nova soba gleda ka drugom hotelu i animacioni program tamo ume biti prilično glasan, ali zatvaranje vrata rešava problem.
Sada malo detalja o samom hotelu.
HRANA: Ishrana je bila polupansion. Doručak je bio iznad proseka za ovakav hotel, uvek je bilo nešto od čega se da napraviti dobar obrok, glavni sastojci uvek prisutni i u dovoljnom količinama, a imate i mogućnost da sebi spremite omlet po želji ili za nešto sitno zamolite kuvara. Ručak je bio veoma dobar, više različitih vrasta hrane, kuvane, grilovane, pržene, prema svačijem ukusu. Uvek je bilo bar jedno tipično grčko jelo i jedno pravljeno prema ukusu većine gostiju (Nemci) i postoje različite vrste paste, koje šef kuhinje lično kuva, za svaki dan u nedelji. Snek bar je bio OK, cene su bile osrednje.
HOTEL: Impresivan hotel, sa ogromnom recepcijom, dva odvojena kraka hotela, velikim bazenom (25m), velikom baštom sa travom i suncobranima i ležaljkama (besplatno). Osoblje je vrlo predusretljivo i prijatno, govore engleski, nemački i italijanski, bar. Ako spremačica ne govori engleski, u društvu je nekog ko zna, što je vrlo lepo. Postoji Internet pristup na recepciji, besplatan za sve, bez posebnog prijavljivanja, dovoljno mesta za zainteresovane i moguće je surfovanje, četovanje i Internet telefoniranje sa najčešćih klijenata, bez problema. Bazen je veliki i čist, sa dovoljno prirodne senke i suncobrana, ali ga nismo koristili zbog plaže.
PLAŽA: Pekovita plaža, vrlo sitan peska (ali nije prašina) deca mogu da se igraju i da prave zamke na obali. Postoje i ležaljke i suncobrani (2+1 košta EUR7). Postoje putevi duž cele plaže koji vode i do mora, odlični kada je pesak vruć a i dečija kolica se koriste bez problema. Jutarnje šetnje su izuzetne. Iz bašte se sasvim lepo može ići na kupanje, ako nemate preku potrebu da budete blizu mora ili na pesku. Postoji teren za odbojku, manji, ali prihvatljiv.
Preporučio bih hotel za mlađe ljude, ako mogu da ga priušte sebi. Neće imati preveliko društvo u hotelu, ali je napolju druga slika. Bili smo zadovoljni onim što smo imali u hotelu, ali Faliraki nije grčko mesto. Nema tipično grčkih stvari, orjentisano je ka provodu (ludom ili razuzdanom) ka Britancima i osećali smo se kao da smo pali s Marsa sa dvoje dece. Grad Rodos nije daleko, i vredi ga obići, naročito start deo. Takođe, posetite Cabika plažu (Tsambiki), sa odličnim peskom, dug plitak ulaz, lep zaliv (nije za više dana, ali definitivno dobro za jednodnevni izlet), jedite u Tsabiki Beach restoranu (kada ste okrenuti ka moru sa leve strane, definitivna preporuka), tražite Jorgosa, pomoćiće oko svega, izbora hrane, prevoza, generalnih pitanja.

I stayed at Apollo Beach Hotel for about 10 days and altough I never choose less than 5*, (we had several complications with our stay at Rhodos Palladium), we were very surprised about our stay at this nice 4* hotel.

The room was ordinary - nothing more or less expected in this hotel category. Small, but tiny and clean with large balcony and side sea view. Actually, all rooms have side sea view.

Food was fine but not a gourmet experience as in high-class hotel. The staff members were all very polite and willing, no disputs occured.

Beach was clean - there are sunbeds also on the grass, so this was interresting and quite refreshing about the typical holiday hotel stereotype. A little bit overcrowded sunbathing area and pool.

Only thing that does matters, was the location. A night mare for people who need quite and calm place. There is an Amusement Park with noisy corousels nearby the hotel. Music from the discos and night bars spread everywhere. Faliraki is really only for night-life seekers.

When I read reviews about Apollo Beach for a first time, I knew that this is the hotel I was looking for. I was not disappointed. Great hotel, perfect location (40m to the beach, 100m to the main road of Faliraki with lots of pub & clubs). Cleanliness of the hotel & rooms at a very high level, every day service of the room & cleaning, food - brilliant! There are a lot of German people and probably because of that the food is so good. We (me and my wife) spent there our honeymoon (1 week stay) and it was lovely time, I definitely recommend that to others. The hotel is pretty expensive, but you get what you pay for. 25m long swimming pool, beach 40m away - great. You will not be disappointed!

This hotel is a must if you want an enjoyable stress free holiday.
The staff were very welcoming and polite, although there were no english people when we stayed everyone was very friendly.
The food and service was fantastic and the rooms were modern, clean and all have air conditioning tv and sea view.
