“Gloucester Family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013

Me returned from a 11 day stay at the Calypso party of 5 rooms good size and clean the beds are the hardest bed I have ever tried to sleep on and if you are on the roadside they call this garden view buy some ear plugs! As traffic is soooo loud and non stop. Food is a good standard for a 4 inclusive but could do with more choice and more special evenings but the fish night was good enjoyed the Prawns and Sea Bream.they have one special restaurant which you can book for one night don't bother 2 star we had steaks but could not taste beef when eaten . Drinks were good on the whole they had some branded drinks Beafeater gin Jim Bean whiskey and they put in very big measures we used the main bar at night and Staveros the barman was first class polite and good service as for the snack bar they have the rudest barman I have ever encountered janei or some thing like that small chin beard I had ordered some drinks for lunch and then my wife came over and asked me to get her a drink so I returned to the bar got to the back of the Que. obviously I am English ! Waited my turn then asked politely for my drinks the barman then proceeded to shout at me next time order all Your drinks at once with the economy as it is in Greece this man should value his job Faliraki is easily walking distance and worth a stroll for a change of scenery as for the entertainment is not to be fair the fire show is as hot as a polar ice cap . Had better had worse
Holidays if you are looking at trips we went on the simmi boat trip be warned you get shuttle boat to Rhodes then get on a crowded ferry for nearly 2 hours so long time travelling

Room Tip: Do not book road side room

we have just returned from Calypso Hotel and would like to saywhat a great hotel this was, it is ideal for couples and families alike,the food was very good, location very good. The staff cant do enough for you and the waiters are so happy and pleasant we had Tsam sam for short and he knew just what to serve us every morning and night he remembered everything we had. The hotel is very clean the rooms were always spotless,the only downfall is I don't think it is ideal for anyone disabled

Room Tip: our room was on the5th floor and we slept very well

My boyfriend and i stayed at calypso hotel for 1 week. The hotel was very good, clean staff friendly. We like to go out at night and i had heard from a friend back home that she had visited a fantastic bar while here a few years ago called King Arthurs castle. We decided visit on our second night and we were very impressed. The staff were genuinely friendly and couldnt do more to make our experience there better. Lovely cocktails and great live music and really good hypnotist show. We visited the bowling alley also which was great fun and a good idea for a bar. We really enjoyed visiting lindos and rhodes town. Beautiful places and not hard to get to. Definitely would come back to faliraki!

After staying here for last two weeks of summer holidays , we were in a large group of 23 in week 1 down to 13 week 2 as my sister was getting married.
Our room was next to the lifts on roadside - very noisy ,both from road and lifts and had to be moved to another room also roadside end of week one as could cope no longer with the lifts bing all night.. room was huge but still noise from road but refused to pay extra for sea view. On this note room very clean , maids were great and attentive.
Hotel receptionists i found rude and not friendly or helpful at all except for one lady who was always smiling and extremely helpful shame the rest let her down (i was convinced this was we were english too defo favour the other nationalities here).
The food was very repetitive but always warm and areas kept clean.. negative on this is not alot of choice for kids therefore my daughter lived on chips and bread!
Entertainment was very disappointing .. no bbqs and much the same ... for a 4 star expected better. As we in a large group we could overcome this but would struggled had we been on our own.
As for the sunbeds.. although a large group we did only save beds for those that would use (ie not for kids) which were all taken up and used straight after breakfast if we didnt use them all would always remove towels to ensure others could use these.. but getting up at 6:30 every morning was awful however week 2 we could still get a bed at 8:30 so got better...
All in all a clean hotel, great all inclusive package but let down by entertainment ....

Room Tip: get a seaview room away from lifts and you be fine

Myself, husband and 2 chidren ages 13 and 9 spent the last 2 weeks of August at the Calypso Beach and had a great holiday. Having been all inclusive on virtually every holiday we have had since my eldest was born, I think the Calypso offers outstanding value in terms of the food and drinks available and facilities. We have been to some very fancy hotels in the past that despite their posh furnishing do not offer the standard of service here, particularly the restaurant and snack bar where tables are cleared and cleaned at lightening speed and not left to pile up as they are in so many buffet places.

A big plus for us is that our 13 year old is still classed as a child here which makes a huge cost difference. I do find it absurd with most hotels you are charged an adult rate for 12 years and over despite them obviously not drinking alcohol and if anything like my son eating mainly pasta dishes especially when you are 4 in a room. So all in all highly recommended. The kids loved the slide, and really enjoyed the twice daily water polo. The location is great with a little shopping centre 10 minutes up the road and within easy access to Rhodes town. Plenty of water sports and boat trips to choose from and spectacular virtually guaranteed sunshine.

There are 2 down sides firstly the entertainment which is fairly minor because they do try but the same fire show 3 times in 2 weeks is just too repetitive. Secondly the big downfall is the sunbed situation around the pool, which would put me off ever booking again. Being a pool person rather than a beach person we would have to set the alarm for 6 am to get a bed by the pool which is hardly a rest. Obviously peak season this is always a problem and there were a couple of large groups of 10 and 12 where one person was reserving beds for the whole group. However there has to be a better solution especially when some of those sun beds were then not even used until 3 in the afternoon! I have never understood why hotels never have enough sunbeds after all that's why we are there.

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday at the Calpso Beach.The rooms were very big and spacious, best rooms we have ever had. The food in the snack bar was very nice and the meals in the dining room of a night was delicious and up to a high standard. The only thing we didnt like about the meals was that they had a barbacue every fortnight and a fish night serving nothing but fish delacacies eg : swordfish with eyes and mouth in, prawns and other funny stuff that looked horrible. The hotel inside was very clean and nice. Every all inclusive hotel we have stayed in gives you coloured bands to prove your over or under 18 but they give you cards instead though we prefer bands. We got clean towels everyday and the pool area was very impressive with the slide. We got a few sunbeds by the beach which suited me and my parents though if you wanted a seat by the pool you had to get it at 5am in the morning. The entertainment was medioka but I think some of the entertainment staff didnt have a clue about what entertaining your guests mean. I have stayed in kalathea quite a few times and the Calypso beach and the Esperides hotel are the best hotels on the strip. There wasnt any faults with this hotel and I was very impressed with it as I had a lovelly holiday and stayed in a fabulous hotel, I would definatly come back again. ps The guy in the snack bar does very nice cheese and ham toasties. thankyou for a fab stay and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We arrived at 6am to find people going out to get their sunbeds, when we got to our room shortly after we look out to find most of the beds already gone.
So unfortunately there is no lie ins at this hotel, if you want a sunbed you have to endure the shame of trudging past reception at 6am towels in hand.
Apart from that it is all good.
IF YOU BOOK WITH THOMAS COOK WATCH OUT, YOU ONLY GET 13 NIGHTS, AS THE 1ST NIGHT YOUR ARE TRAVELLING, THE ROOM IS BOOKED FOR YOU??
BUT ON THE LAST NIGHT WHEN YOU HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL 3am YOU ARE IN THE RECEPTION ALL NIGHT THEY ARE NO HELP YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN.
WE LUCKILY GOT ANOTHER ROOM AT A COST OF 90 EUROS.

Room Tip: We had a sea/pool view, other side looks onto a road and hotel opposite
