Grecotel Rhodos Royal

The Grecotel Rhodos Royal is located right on a Blue Flag beach. It has three pools to enjoy, too – two of these are surrounded by lush gardens and the other one’s indoors. There’s even a separate children’s pool with slides.

The main restaurant serves a great range of international dishes, but there’s also a separate section for Greek specialities. Themed evenings are the headliners, and chefs do show cooking. For something different, there are four a la carte restaurants.

Overview of Kalithea

Kalithea is a small resort that’s very popular with people searching for relaxing holidays to Rhodes.

Located between Faliraki and Rhodes Town, Kalithea is a relaxing retreat but it’s still easy to get out and explore the rest of the island when you fancy a change of pace.

No holiday to Kalithea is complete without a trip to the hot springs. Visitors across the island come to experience their healing properties, and you’re sure to leave feeling rested and recharged. After, family-run tavernas are the places to be. They specialise in Greek flavours and the owners often serve up shots of ouzo to share with patrons.

Things to do in Kalithea

The sand-and-shingle beach on the doorstep of the Grecotel Rhodos Royal is a real winner. It holds Blue Flag status and it also has a little jetty you can dive off and a beach bar that opens during summer.

The restored baths are Kalithea’s most popular attraction. They first became popular in the 1920s and their healing properties have attracted visitors from across the globe. Surrounding them, secluded bays and coves provide plenty of space for you to work on your tan in privacy.

For a lively evening out, Faliraki is only three kilometres away and you can be on the neon-studded strip in under 10 minutes when you grab a cab. For a day trip where you can soak up the culture, Rhodes Town’s only 20 minutes away.

After a trip to Kalithea, you’ll feel rested, rejuvenated and recharged.

Resort Summary

Kalithea’s 1.5-kilometre, white sand beach looks out across the water towards the hills of Sithonia, giving an attractive silhouette to gaze on when you’re sunbathing under a straw parasol. The calm bay has a softly sloping seabed so swimming here is quite safe.

For more action, visit the watersports centre half way along the beach and you can hop on jet-skis, water-skis or take a banana-boat ride. All along the beach you’ll find bars serving drinks and snacks so you can grab a gyros and cold beer to take back to your lounger.

Or you might prefer relaxing on Kriopigi Beach, which is just a five-minute drive down the road to spend a quiet day in beautiful surroundings. Awarded a Blue Flag for cleanliness, the beach is backed by dense pine forests.
