Best Family Hotels in Rhodes
We recently visited amazing Rhodes and stayed at the waterfront luxury Grecotel Lux Me Dama Dama resort in Kallithea. That was a great base to relax and explore the island. Because the resort is located on a long and wide beach of golden sand, but near the historic Old Town. During our stay in Rhodes, we created a list of fun things to see and do for kids in Rhodes. We also had the chance to explore some other hotels and resorts on the island. Many have fun water slides or water parks, ideal for a family vacation. They are listed here below.
