“Great Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

We just got back form a relaxing stay. The hotel overall is very good. The rooms are clean and very roomy. Food is great and the choice is excellent. The pool area is a lovely with great views of the sea. The gym was good and the spa was to high standard very relaxing.

Take up the offer of the water sports the canoeing is fun.

The only downside for me were the drinks which are to a poor standard, especially the spirits. Although service was always ok.

Trousers are required in the evening so make sure you take some.

The Hotel overall is a great place for stay. I recommend all inclusive as the area around the hotel is nothing to shout about and could do with an upgrade.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the higher floors as you don't get much of a view on -1. Also ask which room h...

This was the second time we have stayed at this hotel within the last few years. As mentioned in previous reviews, cold flannels and a glass of wine greet you on arrival, together with a speedy check in and being personally shown to your room. The hotel is excellent with large rooms which are cleaned along with towel changes every day, although the air conditioning is not the best but it does it's job. The restaurant buffet offers an excellent choice which you would find very hard not to find something to enjoy. We stayed on a half board basis, as we like to hire a car and explore the island, which is very beautiful with some excellent beaches and clear warm water. The hotel all inclusive option we thought a bit expensive and not worth purchasing,when you are away from the hotel during the day. The only thing we were a bit disappointed was the restaurant manager, who didn't make himself known to everybody, only a few, which all appealed to be all inclusive ones. These he laughed and joked with and seated them at there table every night. Also the strict dress code did not appear to include everybody, as some women were allowed to wear inappropriate shorts and tops, the men on the other hand were more scrutinised and not allowed into the restaurant if not wearing long trousers. This did not spoil our time here, as we enjoyed every minute. All the other staff were impeccable and bent over backwards to help you. The Thomson reps were in my opinion not effective and were more interested in selling you tours rather than helping you. There was one time we had an issue and when asking the rep to help sort out, was told to sort it ourselves with the reception. I'm sure if I wanted to book an excursion they would have bent over backwards to help. But all in all we had an excellent holiday and will return again in the future.

Room Tip: Superior sea view are excellent

We are sorry you felt uncomfortable at some time. No employee in our hotel does not behaves differently to customers and always behaves in the same way for all.

We visited the superb Atlantica Imperial for the 3rd time to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and once again, we had the most amazing holiday. On arrival we're greeted with cold flannels and a chilled glass of bubbly. The check in process is very slick and by the time we got to our room our luggage had already been delivered and we were thrilled that our room had a panoramic view over the pretty bay and beach - well worth the extra.

Unlike some other couples hotels the main buffet restaurant is great with the option to eat either in or outside and the food is of an incredibly high standard (and I'm fussy!) There are two A la Carte restaurants and both are as good, if not better, that some London restaurants I've visited (take note Mr Pierre-White!). We particularly like to eat breakfast in the Atrium which is very stylish, as is the rest of the hotel, rooms and communal areas alike. The staff are charming and cannot do enough for you and it is quite obvious that the work incredibly hard to make sure every guest has the best holiday possible. We would like to say a particular thank you to Christos, Ivan and his team at the pool bar, Viron (our favourite waiter) and the lovely young man who is the assistant restaurant manager (Georgios I think?!) who went out of his way to make our anniversary really special (thank you for educating us about Greek wine!) A real highlight is Gala night which takes place on a Tuesday. The guests are treated to a fantastic night of sparklers, fireworks, music and dancing and Christos Georganas (the excellent hotel manager) brings all his staff out and sings their praises which gives us, the guests, a chance to show our appreciation. This hotel manages to do a very difficult thing and that is provide a grown up, stylish environment, coupled with a element of fun, and my husband and I love it, which is no mean feat as we're very hard to please. A testament to this is the enormous number of people we recognise from previous years, which is pretty unusual, and almost everyone we met and got chatting too have also booked to come back - enough said frankly. We have already booked to return in 2015 and are counting the days until we return to our little Greek paradise. Thank you and well done once again.

Room Tip: Opt for a Superior Sea View - well worth it.

Our Atlantica Imperial Resort holiday began with being greeted with cool flannels and a chilled glass of bubbly. Despite our late arrival, a buffet meal including hot food, was laid out ready for us and we ate while our luggage was taken to our rooms.
All facilities were clean and tidy and all staff were very friendly and helpful.
The manager was always around, talking to guests and checking that everyone was happy with their stay.
There were a choice of sunbeds, either poolside or on the grassy cliff overlooking the bay. Loungers were reserved early by guests by the pool but there were always other loungers available on the grass if you got there later.
It was a short walk into Kolimbia where there were a range of shops and tavernas.
The restaurant food at the hotel was EXCELLENT! A wide range of choices every lunchtime and evening and desserts being prepared in front of the guests.
Trips could be booked via the Thomson reps so we did the Rhodes by Knight and the boat trip to Symi. (Be warned it is nearly 2 hours each way on the boat to Symi but it was worth it).
We also hired a car from the car rental company based at the hotel. It was lovely to be able to see the whole island. We booked 3 days but 2 days was enough to see everything really.
We would return to this hotel and indeed, there were many people who had returned to stay there several times.
The manager and his staff are obviously doing an excellent job so a big THANK YOU to you all!

We stayed for 11 nights (arrived on 9 August) and visited with our daughters (aged 18 and 21). While the hotel 'set-up' is clearly aimed at couples, the hotel had quite a number of people staying with teenagers (but not younger children) I and would not let the 'couples' tag from stopping you from staying at this wonderful hotel. It has a contemporary feel to it, with a very relaxed atmosphere. The rooms are comfortable and kept very clean, and all staff are friendly and professional. The food is of a high quality and a wide enough choice is available to withstand a degree of repetition, which is unavoidable I guess. The main restaurant managed superbly well by Athanasios. The pool is kept clean, and there are plenty of sun loungers (although they could do with upgrading) even for later risers, but if you want something poolside, I am afraid that the ridiculous lounger reservation game is played by the guests, which begins very early in the morning! This is a pity as, unless you play the game, you may not get a spot you prefer. The grounds of the hotel are kept beautifully tended, and the beachfront location gives you easy access to the wonderfully warm sea if you prefer. Evening entertainment is not too "in your face" and if that's not for you, there is always the hotel lobby bar, or relaxing lounge area. I should mention the Spa. My younger daughter jarred her back while at the hotel and the spa manager, Alexandros, was extremely helpful, professional,and reassuring in arranging for her to have a massage by one of the well qualified team, which worked wonders. Indeed, my wife and other daughter were so impressed they both went to the Spa! (which is very reasonably priced). And, finally, a word about the Hotel Manager, Christos. He is engaging and takes a genuine interest in the guests. He was kind enough to recommend some places to visit and eat when we visited Lindos. He has a great team at Kolymbia - and are a credit to him. I am sure we will return!

This a a beautiful hotel. We have just returned after a two week stay. We arrived in the early hours of the morning to be greeted with a glass of bubbly and a very speedy check in. We were upgraded to the imperial suites which I have to say we're fantastic. We had a living area down stairs and our bedrooms were upstairs. We had sandwiches and fruit in our room on arrival and another bottle of fizz very relaxing. There was entertainment by Anna if you wished to take part but was never in your face. Hotel was spotless and management always visible. Fantastic relaxing holiday. Food was great lots of variety and beautifully presented . Can not fault this hotel would recommend it to any one.
