- Exploring the historic city of Rhodes, a short cab ride away
What To Know
- Free WiFi is rather weak
- Take breakfast on the terrace as it has the best sea views
- To get around between beaches, the hotel and Old Town it's easiest to rent a car; you can find convenient rental services right in the lobby
Few places in the world can offer glimpses of ancient history and loads of lavish luxury quite like the Greek island of Rhodes. Just a mile outside the town of Kalithea, known for its fabulous Blue Flag beach, sits the five-star Rodos Palladium. Here, you can enjoy a serene stretch of coastline while still being a short taxi ride away from the cobbled streets and centuries-old castle of Old Town. So whether you’re here for the history – or just a bit of R&R – Rodos Palladium has you covered.
Location aside, the resort itself is a lavish paradise. Surrounded by sprawling gardens and a sparkling network of pools, this luxury getaway is quite a sight to behold. The vast stretch of beach, complete with loungers and umbrellas, certainly catches the eye, and the interiors are just as opulent as you would expect from a five-star. The guest rooms are comfortable and elegantly furnished, while gourmet dining options, chic bars and a serene spa top it all off.
Measuring in at 290 square feet, Double Sea View rooms provide you with ample space to stretch out. The private balcony, 85-105 square feet in size, is fully furnished and affords lovely sea views. The décor is warm and inviting, boasting comfortable furnishings and all the modern conveniences.
Symposium Restaurant, the hotel’s main dining spot, serves a delicious American buffet breakfast, as well as local and international cuisine later in the day. For à la carte fine dining, Thalassa is highly recommended, boasting an idyllic setting, just steps from the sand, and a wonderful array of Mediterranean delights. For drinks, you’ll be able to savor your afternoon glass of wine or evening cocktail in a variety of settings, with Mythos Main Bar, Oasis Pool Bar and Poseidon Beach Bar all at your fingertips.
The hotel’s spa offers a huge range of health and beauty treatments, a fully equipped fitness center, a sauna and a steam bath. You can treat yourself to a hot-stone massage treatment, indulge in a series of water experiences or discover the ancient Arabic cleansing ritual of Rasul.
Rodos Palladium is located just steps from the award-winning Blue Flag beach of Kalithea, on the coast of Rhodes, and less than two miles from the town of Kalithea itself, which boasts a nice variety of bars and restaurants. If you’re up for it, you can try out some waterskiing, or visit Europe’s second largest waterpark, just around the corner. The historic city of Rhodes is a 15-minute taxi ride away, and the lovely town of Lindos, with its picturesque white houses, is a 40-minute drive to the south.
How to Get There
A week long stay late season. The hotel is lovely with very nice rooms, ours with a sea view where we could watch the dawn. There is loads to do, extremely clean and the surroundings are quite beautiful. The food was superb, the staff were really terrific, clearly very proud of their hotel and genuinely friendly, as is the Greek way, a real joy to be around. We loved the various bar's and outside restaurants and the cocktails in the main bar were great. I thought the drinks were reasonably priced for a hotel of this quality, and they are still cheaper than my local in Surrey. The beach and pools are real highlights, and it made it a difficult choice each day. Unfortunately we had to leave as the hotel was closing for the off season, I guess there is always next year.
We had a week at the end of September.. Hotel and Staff are amazing and the chef was incredibly helpful with my food intolerence..
The evening bar staff, especially Stamatis Kantinos and Angel Kerin who were so attentive with myself and my elder Father, and without their warmth we would have been lost as there sadly was a lack of smiles or politeness from the other guests.. We did have a game of 'spot the smiler..!!
Overall a pleasant and relaxing stay with great facilities.. Evening entertainment was not really up to scratch for a 5* hotel and repetitive.. You need some new talent to keep your guests entertained and involved for future reference.
Thank you Stamis and Angel and hope to see you both next year..
Just returned from our 5th consecutive visit to this hotel.again not disappointed.All areas of the hotel are cleaned to a very high standard.the rooms are very spacious and of a high standard.the superior delux sea views are just beautiful and fitted out to a high standard.All the staff at the hotel are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The food choice is exelent and of very good quality kitchen staff go to great lengths to present every item of food immaculately.and the waitresses do a marvellous job looking after you. The swiming pool is very well maintained and cleaned every morning.the beach area accommodates plenty of Sun beds and umbrellas all Sun beds have a mattress adding to the comfort the sea is warm and safe for swimming this is a blue flag beach. Swim shoes are a good idea because of the pebbles and shingle on the beach but this does not spoil its beauty. I can speak highly of this hotel having stayed in hotels around the world this hotel rates as one of my best and shall once again be returning in 2019.We are not boring but this hotel ticks all our boxes.
On arrival at the hotel reception desk, we were greeted by the receptionist who was most helpful and very polite, and arranged for the bellboy to take our suitcases to our room, who was also very polite too.
We had a deluxe superior room, with full sea view. The food was excellent, with so much variety of dishes available for all to eat.
New toilets and changing facilities are available on the beach, which made a vast difference.
The waitress, Maria in the dining room as always was excellent, but we always asked for Maria through personal choice.
We would like to express our sincere thanks to Sebastian, who worked so well and hard, and most helpful at all times whilst he worked on the reception desk, and deserves a big thank you!
Staff and waiters at the Beach Bar and the Myphos Bar all gave an excellent service. We found Filimonas to be polite and helpful with a good sense of humour.
We also, we would like to thank Stephanie and Babis for their hospitality, and customer service throughout our 2 week duration.
Althought October is considered an Autumn month, Summer was still there. The place was very well-located. The hotel itself keeps a neo-classical rythm, with beautiful marbles and granites reminding luxury hotels in Las Vegas. The personnel was very polite and there was a variety of activities suitable for famillies. The music around all areas was excellent. Overall, the pricing for that offered could be said friendly ;) well done!
