Just arrived back from the Hotel Calypso in Rhodes this morning. I was part of a group of 3 ladies travelling to celebrate my 50th birthday. Was slightly disappointed when given our room as we had emailed the hotel and requested a low floor as one of the party doesn't do heights, we were allocated the 5th floor. The lady on reception said if we wanted we could change the next day. (we didnt though).Our room was on the road side of the hotel (536) which can be a little noisey but didnt cause much of a problem. The room was very clean and spacious and as there were three sharing we used the sofa bed. Which was larger than we had imagined and extremely comfortable. The maid service was great, clean towels every day ( beach and bath) and never intrusive. Cleanliness was excellent and there is an iron in the maids room on every floor.
We had a late arrival 10:30 and the only food available was at the snack bar which were toasties which closes at 11pm, so if your flight is later you wont get fed. The bars are open from 10am -2am and there are 3 of them. George and Takis in the main evening bar 6pm -2am where extremley hospitable and remembered all our drinks and even had them ready when we needed replenishing! Antonio and Yannis in the pool bar where great, they make a mean Palmer cocktail.
The food was good, a wide variety for all meals, the slow roast lamb and the sword fish were fantastic. The food was not hot but I am used to this as most hot countries dont have their food piping hot. Nikos the maitre'du was excellent and extremely professional, had a cake made for my 50th and also when one of the party was ill he was very helpful and concerned. The waiter Zannethios was very friendly and very efficient, always polite and remembered our orders. We used the a la carte restaurant for my birthday food was good but limited choice the service was excellent though and they played happy birthday when they brought my surprise cake to the table.
The animation team was good and friendly, reception was very professional but did not have the spa information to hand when requested. I did however use this service and found the therapist very good but the facilities could be better.
Overall I have really enjoyed my time at this hotel and think that is gives great value for money and is situated in a very accessable area, easy for Rhodes, faliraki and Lindos. Would recommend this to friends and family.
