A great place, very peaceful and quiet. Beautiful views and great pools and facilities. The spa is very professional and the staff in the hotel are very helpful. Also the food is tasty. The main city is a few minutes driving so a rented car is recommended (there is also a

Although this year the hotel was looking a little tired and could've benefited from some attention to repairs and maintenance, it was the end of the season and the staff continue to work extremely hard. Food and drink fantastic, rooms very comfortable and Greece pretty much

Hi. Men have to wear trousers in the main restaurant. Proper trousers. eg. Trousers, Chino's, Jeans, even pyjama trousers if you really must! (we saw it) On the other hand ladies can wear what they like! TBH unless you have already booked and got a fantastic deal, you should be aware there are lots of hotels in Rhodes that much better than Kresten Royal. We had a poor holiday, and they were not interested in any post holiday feedback. Shame!

You can email the hotel direct, though TA wont let me post that on here, but its easy to find. Before we travelled we were offered various options re upgrades. We declined in the hope that we could blag our way (lets face it sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't) Our observations were. The private pools weren't very private. Some of them seemed a bit "gritty" and because of the location, didnt get as much direct sunlight as the hotel room that we were allotted. We were happy with our side sea room. Though we had previously thought Rhodes was our favourite of the Greek Islands, our opinion after Kresten was, that we wouldn't return. Kresten did play some part in that conclusion. Kresten's communication prior to travel was top notch, in wanting to submit some gentle feedback, Nothing!

Do you get unlimited bottles of water on the all inclusive board?
No. But there are water coolers in various places so you can fill and refill your own bottles. Though at the supermarkets water is very very cheap.

"Bathroom could do with a good refurb "
"Don't believe what they promise on arrival"
"Sea View or even better a suite with private pool."
"Choose a sea view and not to far from the restaurant otherwise you could have a bit of a walk."
"Avoid 182 - it's directly above the late night bar."
