Calypso Beach Hotel - All Inclusive4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
My family and I visited last summer in August 2016. We are a British-Indian family consisting of my grandmother, my two uncles and my mother, and the three cousins (myself, a 14 year old and 20 year old). Firstly, the hotel is just hours away from the airport which is slightly annoying. Secondly, the first thing we were asked by the hotel management wasn't if we needed help, but where we were from. My uncles and mother were all born in Kenya and when that was the response, they would not accept it. Going to a European country as a brown family is hard enough but this was slightly concerning. The first day in the hotel, we had an incident. The men in our family went to the beach while the women all stayed at the poolside. My mother had some pebbles in her hand which she tossed to the side. A German man saw that and yelled at my mother. Full on verbally attacked her and I ended up arguing with him because she was so terrified and shocked. He accused us of being "dirty" and making a mess. He also reported us because we were apparently disturbing him. After speaking to management about the situation, they said nothing and blamed it on us. A woman who overhead the entire situation reported him and said she felt terrible that he picked on us when there was no need too and her family were appalled at how badly we were treated. Regardless if other families defended us, the management still took his side and made us feel uncomfortable. The man was swearing and shouting "paki" and "dirty brown fools" in front of the receptionist and she did nothing. She carried on defending him and saying that an 18 year old girl should not answer back. Disgusting. However, he hotel itself was nice and the service is good. But honestly, the lack of respect from the hotel management let us down and it has made us look differently at how Asians are treated in European countries.
Spend a week there in July with a friend. It took us almost 2 hours from airport with Luxair to get there.. it was awful. Broken luggage on arrival, people at airport are very sloppy. On arrival we were surprised to see a very old looking reception, very old fashioned. People at the reception not very friendly. So very bad impression on arrival and this was confirmed during our stay, almost never a smile. We were rushed to the main restaurant.. which was closing and we had like 5 minutes to eat .Waiters were nice and are doing a great job always with a smile. . Then we got to our room. Very disappointed again. The corridor- hall was so old and in a big need of paint & refreshment. Old carpet with stains. Room was OK, great view but nothing else. Very noisy at night. Our neighbors had kids who were yelling and screaming all night long.. and the parents let the kids run in the hallway during the night. It was a nightmare. You could hear everything in the next room, no way to take a nap or rest. Even if housekeeping light was on , they kept coming and bang on the door like crazy to do the room. Awful. I tried to take a nap the day of my Bday.. and they came and banged on the door until I went to open to tell me it was their last chance to do the room.. I was so upset. The only positive things about this hotel is the yard & garden and the bars outside which were beautiful. Waiters & waitress did a great job, which was not easy with all the people from Russia drinking non stop. This hotel is aimed at Russian people so that means lots of noise, brats running around with no supervision at all, lots of people drinking like crazy non stop. Food was OK but not great. A la carte restaurant was pretty nice even if Bday cake was awful. The spa was really nice . had a great massage with Andreas for my Birthday.Went back for another one before we left. Pools are very crowded with no place to sit. Beach is OK but not the best. Town is not too far away, you could walk there at night but very dangerous, no lights, lots of traffic. . Went to Rhodos town with the boat that picked you up at the beach. It was a nice ride and Rhodos is beautiful. I wont stay there again and wont recommend this hotel at all. But waiters & waitress are working very hard and deserve a big thank you.
Stayed here in Jun and we had a lovely holiday we travelled in a group of 15 all friends and couples, we had a lovely time and were really impressed with the hotel, although there was a bit on confusion at check in but this was soon rectified, the only issue we had was that we all booked the same room type but half of us got a larger room with a sofa area and some got a small room which was tiny but we all booked the same room type, it was great being on the beach although be aware it is shingle and does hurt your feet when walking into the sea. the food was great and lovely selection and plenty of choice, the location was ok only a 10 min walk to the edge of the faliraki would definitley recommend
We travelled from Scotland middle 2weeks of October 2016, & stayed for 2weeks, we were a family of 10, from aged 2 , 10, 16 year olds, right to retirment age can honestly say it's the best all inclusive Hotel we have stayed in in 12years!, from the beautiful clean rooms, well presented grounds, beach & pool area, the best choice & Quality of food & fantastic choice of Alcoholic & non Alcholic drinks & Cocktails we have ever had!, All the Staff are extremely friendly & professional , a Credit to the Hotel!, The lovely receptionists , porters , maids, ...Yannis & staff at the pool bar, George & Staff at the Main Bar, Goirgio our lovely waiter in the dining room & restaurant manager & staff all made our stay such a happy & pleasant experience !! The entertainment team... Tino, Adrian,Melanie, Barbora,Luisa & Monika work extremely hard to involve all guests of ALL ages to join in with the activities run daily & entertained us in the evening with Children's Disco then there own Dance shows etc!! They each were amazing lovely friendly people!!! The Hotel also brings in outside entertainment .. Greek dancers , magic shows etc, which were all very entertaining too. We wouldn't hesitate on recommending this Hotel to anyone who is planning a holiday in Rhodes! , We will definitely be returning to this beautiful friendly Hotel!!!
This hotel is with out a doubt 5star! It is immaculate! I can't pick up one fault. The accommodation, the food, the staff, the pools, the day activities and the entertainment (5* for that team- Monika, Melanie, Luisa, Adrian and Tino!) they are the friendliest reps ever!! And great with the kids! About 15min walk to faliraki. And 15/20 min bus to Rhodes town. You can also use the sister hotel across the road which is also lovely! Overall... I'd def recommend and I would definitely go back!
In 2015, I had an accident in Faliraki which resulted in a very difficult recovery period, but with the help of hotel staff, I was made very comfortable. As a result we returned in September 2016 for our fourth visit (a rare practice for us) I was welcomed as a "long lost brother!" From all the reception staff and throughout the hotel everyone seemed very happy to see us. Over the last four years there have been various refurbishments. The balcony furniture, the beds and the children's equipment, all of which have been subject of comment in the past have all been updated. Yes, it is necessary, if you want a particular spot on a sun lounger you may have to get out by 7 ish, but hey, the view of the sunrise makes it well worth while! But nevertheless, there are beds availabke most of the day on either the beach or in the gardens. If you are a regular "Grecophile" in a hotel where most of the guests are non British, this is something you will be quite used to, it's part of life. Yes, the British are in the minority, but if you want to be with people of your own country, go to Blackpool - part of the charm of a holiday in Europe is meeting people of other nationalities. We love Greece, and I have learned quite a bit of the language - I do wish "we British" would try! The staff here are first class, the food is excellent. It is a four star hotel and it is value for money. The complimentary "A la Carte" dining on one night is worth going to but only if you have a good appetite! The pool is unheated, and therefore it rather depends on how much the sun heats the pool, but the temperature is always displayed (around 20 degrees is normal) The sea (in September/October) was wonderful, and the beach is sandy. Was it good? we have booked again for 2016!
I visited this hotel for 1 week in September with my husband and daughter who is 3 and a half. We booked the package with Thomas cook. We stayed on the 4th floor in a family room. The room was lovely and clean and spacious. The hotel provide tools to be used at the pool/sea. Of course bring your own but you need the hotel towels to prove your a guest. So let's start with the good stuff. - good hotel location -hotel is clean and throughout - branded drinks and good choices. - snacks/food available all day. -nice beach and clean. -good air con in rooms - great shop on site which covers pretty much all things you may need. -good animation team Now for the not so great - pool is cold and my daughter was freezing when she got out. - the clientele is mainly German/Russian. Whilst I have nothing against it's just they are rude and a clash of attitudes etc is evident. They don't say please or thank you and don't like to queue up. - sunbed situation.... we had to get up early to get a bed and not something I'm keen on when I'm holiday I want to relax and not be rushing about. I dread to think what it would be like in the height of summer! No one monitors this which I think is needed / recommended. - food..... so my husband was poorly on the 3rd night of our holiday and I was bad on the last. Both suffered from sickness & diaorrea. We both felt dreadful. After speaking to a few other people there were similar scenarios being spoke about . It's hard to say what it was so I am assuming food. The food was ok and by the end I was sick of it. In fairness the choice was there just not up my street. A lot of veal in the evening choice and I stuck to plain stuff. - the lunch situation downstairs.... not order what so ever and it was every man for himself. My daughter is so young but I wanted her to choose what she wanted. This didn't please other nationalities and they would barge in which was incredibly rude. You had to queue up like at school but was not organised. We personally would not come back here but overall I would recommend. It just needs a few tweaks and the menu given an overhaul.
Amazing hotel & amazing service! Me and my partner were transferred to the Calypso hotel for one night due to our room in the Lindos Royal having "software issues" and the only regret we have about our holiday is that we did not spend the entire duration of it at this wonderful hotel. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcomed, even though we were not official guests of the hotel, the staff were friendly and the Manager Vasili (William) went above and beyond his call of duty to provide food and general assistance for us. The hotel is clean, has a gorgeous sandy beach right behind, and the cocktails are amazing. When we visit Rodos again, we will be staying here because this is how a hotel should be ran. Top professionals Many thanks to you all Ash
Arrived early evening and the reception was very friendly although the receptionist seemed determined to speak to me in German. You must have a sea-view room here as the view was fantastic. All the meals were of a very high standard throughout the week with special nights, e.g. fish, Italian, Greek. There is an a-la-carte restaurant to which you get one free visit. It made a change but wasn't worth the 30Euros per head charge to go again. The bar staff were great and very efficient. All the well known cocktails plus local beer, wine and spirits were available. The guests were about 85% German so if you don't like spending a lot of time with Germans this hotel is not for you. The entertainment was OK. The animation team did most of it in 3 languages which was a bit wearing. If you are a serious clubber Falaraki is just down the road.
We had a great vacation here in July, and I finally found some time to write this review. Everything felt great at the hotel, and we would be very happy to go back. Many thanks to the staff who provided superb service including dealing some of our quirky requests (like copying MP3s on a USB stick so that we could play them in the rental car :) ). After years of getting bad treatment by big travel agencies, I ventured to book this hotel myself on booking.com very early (maybe even January). It was a big chunk of money so I was a bit apprehensive. When we showed up we were first given a wrong room, but this was corrected by the staff and we were given the family room with sea view we paid for. The room felt just right, it was plenty of space for everybody and we never felt cramped. The food was quite alright, I just wish there was more of the traditional Greek fair in the main restaurant (there was more of it down by the bar). The entertainment was very good, and there was childcare six days of the week. The hotel is right at the beach and this was a first for us. If you are a photographer, you will enjoy taking pictures of the Milky Way right at the beach (Faliraki lights are a bit of a problem, but the Milky Way core was high enough in July). The red moon was also rising over the Mediterranean, pure magic! If you wake up early enough you can also see the sunrise. If I were to complain about something, it would be the temperature of the water in the pool, it could have been 2 degrees C warmer. But then the kids did not mind at all. And as a matter of fact our daughter learned to swim here so this hotel will always have a special place in my heart!
