“Great vacation”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

I´ve stayed at this hotel with my mum for a 10 days holiday and it was a great one. The hotel and the surroundings are very nice and the staff very friendly, as Greeks can be :-) There are two pools and a big garden. The room was clean and comfortable, air conditioning working well, but it was little bit noisy for my mum. The food was delicious, especially the dinner buffet. It is about 5-8 minutes from the sea which is warm. There is a sand beach with the sun beds to rent (8 EUR/day/2 beds and beach umbrella).
There is a supermarket right next to the hotel and then about 20 minutes walk there is a "main" street with many shops (supermarket, clothes, souvenirs and so...).
The island is very beautiful and I reccommend you to visit the biggest city - Rhodos, and go there in the evening, it is very beautiful at this time of the day.
We had a great vacation there and I would recomment it to anyone. Maybe I will come back... :-)

Booked last minute for a week here at end of May and had a really relaxing break. We needed a break and were so pleased to arrive just before the main seaon really started. Great pools with plenty of sunbeds available and quiet relaxing nights. Wonderful satff in the restaurant and the room kept at a high standard.

We have spent in Kolymbia Star 12 wonderful days. The hotel was 200m from the sea with sandy beach and 100m from the bus stop in direction to the capital city. Staff was very friendly, hotel room clean and perfectly cool even if 40 degrees outside. The best was a large choice of meals during breakfast and diner, both in a chic hotel restaurant. The only week point was the evening program concentrated on families with children and retired people. However we partipated on Greek evening with traditional danse cours which was nice.

We were at the Kolymbia star hotel a couple weeks ago, and we loved the place! The hotel was big and rooms comfortable, clean and we had a balcony with a beautiful seaview! There were two big pools, a restaurant, snack bar and a lobby bar. We were half-board, so breakfast and dinner were included to the price. Food was excellent, and there was a lot of it! Many different choices of salads, main course, and desserts! The staff was very friendly and helpful and made you feel welcome! We really recommend this place to everyone who likes beautiful scenery, good food and relaxed atmosphere!

Although we read a lot of bad reviews from trip advisor about the Kolymbia Star Hotel, all were wrong! The food was excellent, both breakfast and evening meal, it was varied and you had a choice of, for. e.g breakfast. Bacon, Sausage(hotdog or spicy salami I think) but very tasty, boiled egg and then they usually alternate scrambled egg and omelette, always nice, you must try their brown sauce( its lovely) nothing like the old HP, it's a million times better, you also get unlimited Coffee or Tea(Coffee is amazing) or Grape fruit and orange juice, oh and water, I liked to mix the orange and grape fruit half and half, I found the orange to strong. Oh and at breakfast you can sit anywhere you like. At Dinner you are told to sit at the same table, Breakfast and Dinner you see same very happy man, small with grey hair (who must work every hour) And he is very nice. Here is a bit of Greek. Forgive my spelling I will do it fenectically, (Kali-mera- good morning), (Kali sera - good evening) and most used, (YAMAS! which means cheers)Their Dinner was some times varied for eg. pasta and sauce either a tomatoe or cream and ham(Carbonarra) chicken in a lovely tomatoe and mushroom sauce with onoins, lamb cutlets, deep fried fillet of sole or other white fish and the list goes on. there is always an abundance of bread, fruit, yoghurt (Of different flavours), cheeses, meats, salads etc, I cant remember it all but it was very nice, what made it was the chef coming round asking if it was ok.

The rooms were outstanding, cleaned every day. sheets, towels, cant fault them. The pools are cleaned daily and are amazing( Have Large and kids pools)All the staff are extremely friendly and helpful . I had a long chat with a guy called Savvas Foutoulis which at the time had no clue who he was, he was the Director Manager of the Hotel and the most fantastic guy you can meet, I had one little complaint and it was fixed before I went to my room that night . Also There was young woman called Krista, who made our holiday much better with stretching also yoga and aquarrobics at different times of the day The beach is only about 5 minute or so away if that. I cannot fault this hotel at all. I Highly Reconmmend it. 5 Stars not 4.

The hotel:
The hotel near to the sea (~400 m) and 3 km from the main street. City of Rhodes and Lindos 25-25 km from Kolymbia. Next to the hotel, there are a supermarket and a very good taverna with good food and drink (Michael's Taverna). The supermarket is expensive, and because must be go forward, there are the next street and you can see the Tourist Market. This market is cheap. The hotel buildings there are on the big area. We were in the 707 room. The room was not too big, but very clean. The cleaning came every day and changed the towels. The shampoo and bath not too much.
We were half-board, because the hotel don't give all inclusive.
The breakfast is same every morning. Eggs, jam, yoghurt, bread, sausage, mushroom, beans, juice, coffee, tomato, cucumber, butter and cookie.
The diner is very good. There are much meat (pork, beef, lamb, turkey), and fish, kalamari, soup, potatoes, rice, salads, fruits (peach, grape, apple), and every night 2 cake, icecream.

The beach:
The beach is ~ 400m. There are sunbeds (8 euro/day/2person). The sea is wonderful with the nice stones. On the beach, there are the "Sexy Billy" bar. This is not expensive (the beer: 2-2,50, the juices: 2-4 euro, the sandwich: 2-4 euro).
You can go to the main street (Eucalyptus street), there are very much shopping centre and Taverna, bars and supermarkets. If you sant to buy something, you can find it here.
The next big city of Rhodes (this is a big city) and it is 25 km from the place of Kolymbia.

The staff:
The staff is good, but not perfect. Everybody is sad, they don't knows the smile. The staff will help for you if you want, but this not automatic. The more guests are the hotel from Germany and Italian, little Russian and a bit Hungarians.
The rooms are nice and clean with balcony. We don't found laundry service in the hotel, but there are doctor 24h.

The meal:
My favorite waitress was Lica, she was a very cute woman and I want to say for her a BIG THANK YOU! We hope, soon meet again.

The breakfast is same every day, but the dinner is changed. There are 1 restaurant, a bar in the lobby and 1 bar next to the pool. The quality of the food are good, we don't got sick. The cuisine is European and a little Greece too. The restaurant was clean every day, but there are 3 part. When you are there first time in the restaurant, and you'll get a table. Each day sit there on same part, because the waitress will be angry.
P.S.: If you are there in the restaurant (first time), you don't get information about this.

Tha animation and leisure:
Not sport here! The animators worked till 16 October and they finish. Was water gymnastic, darts, programs at nights....
We saw a Greek-night and this was a cute present to the guest, because there was a great ballett team and a great musicians and the staff, who dancing with the guests.
2 pool in the hotel. The one is big and a middle. The both pools are very cold water. The sea was the warmest and wonderful nice. The sunbeds with the pool was free.

The rooms:
The rooms are good and nice, with a little bathroom and balcony, refrigerant, TV and Air-conditioner. The last day of the summer 16 Septemer. on this day off the air-conditioner. The furniture are good and maybe news.
You find safe-box on the reception (20 euro/1 week and 25 euro/2 week).

This is a good hotel near to the sea and the main street. I think, if you want to relax in the nice area, must be to see Kolymbia.
If you want rent a car or motorcycle, they are in the hotel (Rodos-Car). A standard car price: 30 euro/day.

The bus stop is there in front of the hotel. A ticket to Rhodes or Lindos 3,5 euro/ person.
This hotel not perfect, but it is of the good area. Next to the hotel there are a big Water Park to the family and the children. I think, the hotel is a very good choice to relax and near to the sea.

Room Tip: The rooms in the main building view to the pool. The other rooms are in the garden. I think, that ev...

Firstly on arriving at the dinning room you are told were to sit we were a party of 7 and requested if we could please sit together as there was quite cleary 3 spare large tables all ready set next to us we was informed that if we wanted to sit together we were to arrive at the begining of the sitting. We observed that the large tables were free all that sitting. We arrived On the evening sitting at 6.30 pm only to be told due to the hotel being full the evening sitting will open from 6pm so agian was asked to sit on seperate tables we pointed to the spare tables but was refused it took us several times on having to arrive early early for us to sit together but it was noted that German tourist on arrival no matter when arriving to the dining room were allowed to seat in the large tables. The food could be better all the meat had no flavour tasted like it was boiled the menu was nearly the same for 2 weeks. At breakfast the tea was always Luke warm not hot they had only one 2 slice toaster for 500 guests meaning there was always a que the leaver broke so we had to hold it down which the toaster was very slow. At tea no drinks are in the the meal you cannot take drinks in, the hotel has a fabulous shop located close by which sold bottled water for 30 cents but the dinning room sold the same water for 6 times that amount drinks were very pricey in the hotel. We was also informed whilst we was there that the far block of rooms we were placed in was we're the English or other nationalalities were always put with German tourists being placed in the closest buildings. the entertainment on the even was very poor but the day games with Natasha and Zac was great they are brilliant ! Micheals bar down the road with Vasillis bar is a must the resort is dead due to all the all inclusive killing the resorts business off forcing small businesses to close. Lindos is also a must and a small bus journey to Rhodes town is also a big yes but please avoid the resort of Kalymbia derelict dry waste land very few to see. Nothing for children.
