“really enjoying our stay”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

we arrived here wed 18th june for what we hoped would be a great fourtnight away.
well i can honestley say we are not disappionted, food lovely always sun beds to be found we are late riseres and we have never been dissapointed in not finding a sunbed.
ALL the staff are friendly especially in the restaurant,
Our room has been made up everyday even when we have left late and thought we had missed the cleaner it was stil done on our return.
we are on the 7th floor pre paid sea view and well worth every penny. wine,water,ouzo and soft drinks awaiting for us on arrival.
will give a full review on our return.
CHEERS now of for another drink no substitutes here only the real macoy in drinks :) x

I have been to many many hotels around this world. This was one of the lowest things I've ever experienced. Our rooms were HORRIBLE! EVERY single person in that hotel could see into our room just basically by walking over the "main bridge" in front of the snackbar. Our room was closest to the Restaurant (food was cold, very boring, typical buffet food you could get all over the world - even the rice was soaked in Oil - GROSS!). disappointing. the beach was VERY filled and the sand/pebbles mix not really well taken care of.
The bed - well, one thing is that it stunk horrible, a second thing is that the room was never really made up, the linens never got changed. The pillows were unusable - you could have used a brick! The pool area was FILLED, if you weren't there the latest by 9am in the morning - good luck finding an empty chair, let alone 4! just no.
Just very disappointing.

Room Tip: if you must go get a room on the top floor or so

We stayed here the first week in August 2012 there was 2 adults and 2 children aged 5 and 2. We had a very enjoyable 7 days everything was included in the all inclusive there was unlimited soft drinks and milkshakes for children (or adults) and for adults there was branded spirits such as Smirnoff, cocktails or local beers. At meal time there was a wide variety of choice for breakfast you could choose from hot food such as bacon, sausage etc, waffles, pancakes and toast or you could choose cereal, porridge or fresh fruit. During the day from the snack bar there was fish, Chips, kebab meat, salads, toasters, cake and much more. For evening meal they had themed nights such as Italian, Greek but in my opinion fish night was the best with fresh prawns, muscles, cod and many more. The complex itself is well layed out with plenty of room but beds by the pool did go very early. There is a waterside in the adult pool and dragon water slides in the children's pool.
Now for the bad points, all our towels were stolen off the beds on the first day as well as a lot of other peoples , when I confronted a staff member I was told this happens on a very regular basis but they can't catch who does it not even the police. In the children's pool there is a very sharp what looks like a spring sticking out of the overflow in the kids pool which is cordoned off and kids play in again when raised to staff I was told it was been sorted (clearly not when that was on day 1 and was still like it when we left). Glasses and plates were left lying around on walls from the night before including a smashed glass on the crazy golf course next to the kids club. We were told on check in that the mini bar is restocked with soft drinks daily which it wasn't due to a shortage apparently. The fire alarm point on our floor was not connected and hanging off the wall (thank goodness we didn't need to use it). The door frame in the room had come away from the wall exposing splintered wood (not good with small children). There was a hole in the glass on the balcony which we had to buy tape and cover up ourselves to prevent the children cutting themselves as again when raised to staff nothing was done. Sorry it's long but just wanted to cover everything. So all in all it is a really nice resort but just don't expect to have problems sorted if you have any.

we stayed the here between 24/05/14 and 08/06/14.
we arrived at 11pm at night there were toasties avail in the main bar. we were pleased with the room, two twin beds and a sofa bed for the children. we were roadside which wasnt a problem for us.
all the staff are very friendly, nikos the head waiter in the restaurant is very welcoming. we had georgious who was our main waiter for the holiday. his service was outstanding and he is a credit to the hotel. nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff.
the food was great plenty of choice. no one in our party went hungry including fussy eaters.
the pools are clean and we never head problems finding a sunbed at 10.30am.
the beach was very clean and staffed . also free pedlo hire for guests which was brilliant for children.
we got married in rhodes and all the guests stayed at this hotel to.
on the day of the wedding staff brought some sparking wine to the room whilst i was getting ready. and the morning affter they brought breakfast in bed. nice touch and a complete surprise. we also had wine and a fruit basket when we checked in and a little note wishing us all the best.
the kids club was a bit hit and miss there wasn't many children in the hotel during our stay.
they mainly coloured pictures.it seemed to pick up as we were leaving.
the only problem i have with this hotel is the entertainment. probably the worst i have seen.
i was expecting a lot more from a 4 star hotel.
firstly the animation team put on shows, and good on them ,they try their best but its awful, and we left any a night thinking 'what was that show all about'
they do provide professional entertainment but thats not the best either. the greek dancers and father and son act were good, but the rest were boring.
apart from that the hotel would have been excellent

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.

Room Tip: Pool facing rooms are quieter for sleeping as there is no road noise but you have to pay ectra so re...

Stayed here from 14th May for two weeks.Can't fault hotel at all service excellent from restaurant, snack bars to main bar.All staff friendly,helpful.A bonus is that we had use of sister hotel over the road Calypso Palace where bar and pool ect were on the roof top.Car hire is good and highly recommended we hired a car for 2 days at a price of 50 euros.Location really good lying in between Rhodes Town and Falaraki..there is aTaxi boat that picks up passengers from beach outside hotel taking them to Rhodes and Falaraki.Entertainment split between professional acts and animation team.Profesional acts are pretty good.Animation team poor,the poorest I have seen.probably due to the Italian guy who is the team leader he does not mix with guests at all and has no charisma.The rest of the team try there best.Mark,Claudia and Julia are nice people friendly and pleasant and with leadership would be ok.

Room Tip: Sea view a must

Stayed at the calypso beach hotel for 1 week with my partner and 2 boys aged 6 & 14 from the moment we arrived we were very impressed, tsambika and maria and team on reception were so helpful and always had a smile very welcoming.

We had a garden view room it was ok but after 3 days we upgraded to sea view room which was perfect, the views were amazing, air conditioning, flat screen t.v with sky news and a little fridge
beds were comfortable pillows not so comfortable.
rooms were spotless everyday the cleaners work very hard.

The food was amazing and the service in the restaurant was excellent Nikos and his team run a well oiled ship.
couldn't fault the food or the service.

The snack bar in the day again was well run by Athena and her team the snack bar does get busy but its kept clean and the food is beautiful, and Kostas the bar man makes very good drinks we loved the cocktails.

The hotel is really nice there is a little shop and a car hire place and 5 mins up the road there is a shopping centre and 20 mins the other way if walking there is falaraki.
kids club was a little bit boring for my 6 year old as there was not many children at the hotel at the time but he was kept amused in the swimming pools and loved the water slide.
my 14 year old again just enjoyed the pool and trying to catch the lizards that were around the hotel.

If we could change one thing it would be to have fresh orange juice being served at breakfast not the sweet machine stuff as it has a horrible after taste, and maybe a slush puppy machine for the children as they have this in other hotels.

Room Tip: upgrade to sea view room well worth it
